I am an avid brand, service, beauty, and miscellaneous product user and reviewer. I love to help young adults choose between "this" or "that" product or brand for their lifestyle through well-researched video content (on YouTube).
I love the ingredients this product was comprised of, but overall the product was just okay. The smell was a bit off putting -- almost like sour cream -- and it didn't layer well with the other face products in my night time routine. Trying to get it to rub in enough so that I could put my head on my pillow was a bit of a struggle. A little goes a long way, so it will last a while, but I don't love the excessive packing of this product.
I really loved this product! I was pleasantly surprised by how the mask turned from a sticky product to a white cream through the 1 minute of rubbing required. It washed off easily and did add an extra layer of hydration to my face. It also didn't get my clear hair all messy like some foaming masks on the market that give the same results to my skin. On the whole I do enjoy using this product and it got two thumbs up! I'd be likely to repurchase this one, especially with such great ingredients!
This product has awesome packaging and did a decent job of moisturizing my face throughout the day. The gentle formula did not cause any irritation to my skin after 3 weeks of use; however, the scent of this product really turns me off. It reminds me of black pepper! I appreciate the ingredients of this face elixir and it did a fine job for a day time moisturizer, but I was not blown away by the product's performance.
The staying power on this mascara is wonderful; however you have to put so many coats on because the large size of the brush does not pick up enough product between the bristles. It is wonderful for curling and volume, but it is time intensive to apply. I would definitely recommend this to someone struggling with length and volume, but be warned that you must apply several coats for the effects to be maximized!
This product, while versatile because it includes two colors, is mostly a gimmick. I am not super adventurous when it comes to my make up, so for those of you that are, you may love this eyeliner and it's ombre possibilities. The packaging and application were nice, and the staying power was on par with other drugstore eyeliners, but I don't think I would repurchase this product, since I typically reach for liquid black liners.
This shampoo smells LOVELY! I love the squeeze bottle and the consistency of this shampoo, but it weighs down my hair by the end of the day. I’m glad I was sent this product in the winter rather than the summer, because I think this would be unusable for my hair type in the hotter months. I have normal to oily hair that typically does best with clarifying and volumizing shampoos. I’d love to try more from this line that isn’t so moisturizing!
I got this product in an Ulta flash deal sampler, and after using it for 2 weeks, it was proven to visibly even out my skin tone when used both morning and night. I put this on first thing after cleansing and wait about 5 minutes before adding my additional serums and moisturizers. It's a milky color with a watery texture and a little goes a long way, making it worth it for the steep price tag. However, I think I would be more apt to invest in a well formulated and effective serum before I invested in this extra step. As long as you are toning and cleansing regularly, you can expect even skin tone and texture. If you are someone with natural redness or uneven skin tone even with a normal skin care regime, I would definitely give this a shot!
This product only gets four stars for the color I was sent. The staying power of this lip product is impressive, and the feel of this product on the lips is luxurious. I wish I had received a more neutral color to test this product more often and under different conditions, but due to the high price tag, I probably won't repurchase. This doesn't dry down all the way, but it leave a very healthy gloss like shine for the duration of the wear.
