I'm a young 40something from the Cleveland, OH area with an interest in looking better (as I'm aging). I'm a grad student and dog/cat mom raging against the time machine! I like to write, take part in the performing arts, and drink coffee. Instagram - @MadeUpKateKlotz
OLEHENRIKSEN Pore-Balance™ Facial Sauna Scrub gets 4 out of 5 stars. The best thing about this product is the scent, which I can only describe as "the woods" meets sweet "menthol" meets "spa." It's highly refreshing, and very soothing. The texture is good, although I wish there were even more scrubby particles in it. There is also a light warming sensation when applied, which feels really nice when massaging into the face. The product comes off clean and makes the skin feel soft. Olehenriksen recommends that this product be used before using their Cold Plunge Pore Mask, but you can use the scrub on its own as well. I bought this on the Olehenriksen website during a 40% off sale, which made this particular purchase a great value.
Spray everything! My office is on a college campus, and everything here could use a little Lysol. We're all just everywhere in each other's business, and we pass the germs. This spray version doesn't smell as bad as some of the other sprays that are out there, and it hits areas that a disinfectant cloth might not get to. The can also says it eliminates odors, but I think some of that is just a cover-up scent rather than elimination. But, sometimes that's exactly what you need. Regardless, I love me some Lysol.

This is one of the kinds of pads that they have at work, available in the vending machine in the ladies restroom. They are not good. I personally like a longer pad, and these feel short to me, and they have a very strange top layer that doesn't feel as absorbent as it should. They tend to trap heat as well as moisture, and that is uncomfortable. I would not recommend.
Static Guard is my life in the winter! I live in Ohio, so the air gets really really dry, and my clothes get crazy static at work. Static Guard helps unstatic my clothes, and if I spray it on my hairbrush, it also un-statics my hair. Although I love what the product does, it smells terrible. I really wish Static Guard would get on the bandwagon and come out with some great new scents that would allow for you to walk around smelling good as opposed to like Static Guard. Good product, terrible smell. Static Guard
When you work in an office, everyone is in your space. This is why I have Purell hand gel at my desk. It's not only for me as I shake hands throughout the day, it's for everyone else as they're coming and going in my office. Lots of people sneezing, coughing, and just spreading germs. It's gross, but I hope this helps my work world! It is a bit drying, but the drying effect is worth knowing that I've killed bugs. The gel should be used liberally, and takes a bit to dry. Has a clean, disinfectant kind of scent. Not good if you have cuts on your hands (keep away from scrapes, etc.) [product:purell®-advanced-hand-sanitizer-refreshing-aloe]
I work on a college campus, and our department is very tight-knit. Especially in the winter months, with germs and everything floating around, things can get gross. I have Clorox wipes everywhere and I wipe down things that people don't think about, like door knobs or copy machine buttons, and light switches. You wouldn't believe how many people borrow my stapler or my tape dispenser or my scissors or my keys, and those need wiped down, too! College kids are germy, so these are my life.

This product helped me with my anti-frizz game this morning. Grant it, it's ridiculous humidity outside and nothing will help me once I leave the house, but the NEUMA NeuMoisture Instant Fix made my style sleek and amazing before I walked out of the house! On most days, this would be enough to help me with my light wisp/fuzz issues on my hair. Smells beachy! Like it lots. Got it in my June Ipsy bag. 5 out of 5 stars.
I've never had a yellow or banana powder before, but BELLÁPIERRE COSMETICS Banana Setting Powder is wonderful! It's light and airy, and brushes over the face easily, helping to reduce shine and the look of redness. 4 out of 5 stars because I wish it lasted a little longer on the face. But overall it's a nice product with a silky texture and delicate finish. No scent.
Lovely cooling face mask that was nice to use after a few days of playing in the sun and pool. The consistency of the actual physical mask is like thick and firm, smooth tissue paper. It is SOAKED in the thin gel product that drips off of it, that's how saturated it is. The mask feels cold and slimy when applying, but in a good mask kind of way. Leaves skin hydrated and firm without scent. A little tricky to unfold from the pouch, but that's the only complaint. Around $2-$3 and fun to use. Will repurchase!
