Review for Kotex Lightdays Pantiliners - 2 months, 1 week ago
Wellness Guru Expert Level 1
These pantiliners work great!  The soft texture, unlike the plastic material used in the Always Xtra Protection pantiliners, keeps excess moisture away, making them more comfortable to wear.  The regular size works just fine for me, and I have no problem with them not being individually wrapped, since I put them on at home.  (I keep a box in my bathroom and another in my bedroom.)  If I need to change my liner while out of the house, I use the individually wrapped Always Thin liners, but these Kotex ones work better, since they are thicker.  I wear them every single day!
Review for Proclaim 100% Pure Shea Butter - 2 months, 1 week ago
Although you can find a whole pound of shea butter on Amazon for as little as $10, this is a great option if you need something from a store, specifically, Sally's.  (I got my jar from there with a 40% coupon.)  At Sally's, this product is sold in the hair section, but I bought it to use on my skin. I use it at night around my eyes, in place of my regular eye cream, and on any dry parts of my face.  I just rub it a bit with my finger to warm up the product, since it is about the consistency of coconut oil at a cold room temperature.  I've transferred some to a little jar for me to make it easier to use for everyday, and even to take out of the house with me sometimes.  Keeping the little jar in my pocket keeps the product warm and pliable, so it is easier to apply.

Now that it is winter here, it's not just my skin that gets dry, but my dry eye syndrome has been giving me more problems.  Keeping my eye area moisturized with shea butter has helped with the pain, believe it or not.  It goes on very nicely after I've used a warm compress on my eyes, and is more effective than a mineral oil- or petroleum-based product.  I've been getting a ton of use out of this product during the fall and winter months.
Review for Suave Naturals Conditioner Aloe & Waterlily - 7 months ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This is an unexpectedly nice conditioner.  It is silicone- and quat-free, moderately thick in consistency, smells great, and is quite affordable.  The smell lingers and is also suitable for men.  In my area, the Aloe & Waterlily variety is only sold at Walmart, for a mere $1.94 for a large bottle.
I have thin, wavy, low porosity hair with oily roots and dry ends, and while this works nicely as a "daily" conditioner (although I actually wash my hair every 2-3 days), it also works great as a leave-in conditioner/detangler when diluted with 3 parts water and 1 part conditioner.  My wave pattern is pretty defined the day after washing my hair (I wash at night), but by the second day, the waves are much looser.  To revive them, I spray some water on my hair until it's quite wet, apply this conditioner diluted, detangle with my fingers, apply just a little bit of gel or styling cream, comb the conditioner and product through my hair, then scrunch.  If my roots need some cleansing too, I use a 50/50 mixture of apple cider vinegar and water on them before doing this refreshing method.  Best way to "wash" my hair without actually washing it!  No need to buy an extra cream leave-in conditioner when I have a big bottle of this stuff.
This product didn't work well for me when used as a co-wash (made my roots flat and oily), but I haven't yet tried it diluted for that purpose.  Some people may be able to use it full strength as a leave-in or a co-wash, but if you need to water it down, even better for making the product go further.
With the family size bottles available for less than $2 at Walmart, and the smaller ones in other scents for less than $1, there's no reason not to give the Suave Essentials conditioners a try.  Share it with your family and friends, use it for shaving, and of course, enjoy using it on your hair :D

Review for Maybelline Volum' Express® The Falsies® Big Eyes® Waterproof Mascara - 7 months, 1 week ago

Review for: Very Black more...
I love Maybelline mascaras and have used several, but it's been a few years since I've used waterproof mascara, since it's harder to remove.  However, because my eyes get dry a lot during the day, I need to use eye drops several times daily, which can ruin my mascara unless it's waterproof.  Wanting to try a new Maybelline mascara, but not wanting something with a gimmicky brush, I went for this one.  I also liked that it had a separate wand for the bottom lashes.

Since this product has two sides, of course each wand is going to be shorter than an average mascara wand, but I have not experienced any problems.  It can be just a little tricky to get the outer lashes on my right eye with the shorter wand, but that's it.  Sometimes I'll even use the bottom lash wand on my top lashes a little for some extra precision.  It's not very often that I need to use a lash comb with this mascara, whereas my last two mascaras before this one, the Maybelline Lash Sensational Black Pearl required one much of the time, and my Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam almost every day!  The Falsies Big Eyes provides sufficient length, volume, and definition for my liking.

I remove my mascara at the end of each day with grapeseed oil, and will either remove the oily residue with micellar water, or wash my eyelids with baby shampoo.  (I had clogged oil glands in my eyelid last year, and it has since come back every so often since.  My eye doctor recommended I use baby shampoo to keep my eye area clean.)  Feels great to not have to worry about my mascara running every time I put in eye drops!

Review for Rimmel London Stay Matte Primer - 7 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I hated this primer.  From when I first used it, I thought multiple times of returning it, but since I got it for very cheap, decided that I would give it another chance, over and over again.  The problem with it is that although it mattifies the skin, although just for a few hours, it is difficult to blend makeup over it, and will highlight any dry patches.  The only time I can use it is if I am doing a minimal makeup look, where I put concealer under my eyes and around my mouth, and nothing on my nose or forehead.  Preferably, I would use it on the nose and forehead, in this case, to eliminate the problem of terrible blending over it.  I use a blending sponge, and instead of bouncing it to blend the product, I have to wipe at the product at the edges of where it ends on my face.  The only good thing about this product is that it does not require a powder to set the face makeup, although I would suggest one, which is why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1.
I recently threw away what was left of mine after a rather frustrating episode in which I used it on my forehead, and used more concealer than usual to "carve" out my brows, having to blend the concealer into my forehead.  Unfortunately, with this primer, the concealer really did not blend at all, and looked disgusting.  Whereas I usually cut open any products of mine in a tube to get what's left of it, I just threw this one out after a few times of having trouble squeezing it out.  When I'm almost wiping off my concealer to try to blend it into my skin, it's not working!

Review for Lens.com - 7 months, 3 weeks ago
By doing a Google search for my Avaira contacts, I was able to get them from lens.com for a very affordable price! However, you must use the Google link for the discount. Of course I got a year's supply. They shipped pretty quickly too.
Review for Maybelline Volum' Express® The Falsies® Big Eyes® Washable Mascara - 7 months, 3 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
This is the first waterproof mascara I've used in a long time. With how dry my contacts get during the summer, I need to put in eye drops several times a day and can't risk my mascara smudging. I decided to get this product because every other Maybelline mascara is something I've either tried before, has a huge and/or gimmicky wand, or wasn't available in waterproof at my local CVS.

I like that I rarely need a lash comb with this mascara, whereas with my old Lash Sensational, also from Maybelline, I needed a lash comb almost every day! Since this mascara is double-sided, the wand on either side is short, but it doesn't make applying mascara that much more difficult than with a regular wand. The separate wand for the bottom lashes is in fact very convenient. Sometimes I'll even use it a little bit on the top lashes, if I need to apply a little more product on the tips of the lashes only.

I remove this product with grapeseed oil, then use micellar water to get rid of the oily residue. It is not difficult to remove.

Review for Kiehl's Body Care Duo - Grapefruit - 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I actually won this little set as a prize during a Christmas party at work this past December, and I left it untouched in my room until just...yesterday.  Now that summer is here and I'm waxing my legs again (I use an electric razor during the winter), exfoliating them as the hairs start growing back is essential to help them break through the skin and avoid ingrown hairs.  The scrub in this set is great for that purpose.  It contains apricot seed particles, rather than sugar or salt, as the exfoliating agent, just like the classic St. Ives apricot scrub.  The Kiehl's scrub, while in a jar rather than a tube, is less thick and abrasive than the St. Ives, and with a good rubbing, works well for the legs, and is even gentle enough for the underarms and bikini line.  I can tell when a scrub is working for my legs when the "itchy" feeling of the hairs breaking through the skin subsides.

After my shower, I use the body butter.  The whipped texture feels so luxurious!  Shea butter is pretty high up on the list of ingredients, giving it a velvety feel on the skin.  Although citrus-scented products can sometimes sting the skin, this doesn't at all.

Since I keep the scrub in my shower and the body butter in my room, I no longer need the tin to house both, so I use it to store cotton balls.  It has a pretty nifty pattern, with the Jeremyville art, and looks nice sitting on my makeup desk.

Review for Wax Necessities Film Hard Wax Beads - Natural 35.27 oz (1000g) - 9 months, 4 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 2
I've purchased the Rose wax from Wax Necessities before and loved it, so I decided to try another variety and got a small bag of the Natural wax along with my order of a large bag of Rose. While I do prefer the Rose wax, this one is also quite good. I used it for the legs, bikini line, upper lip, and brows. Works great for each purpose! (Well, I did have a problem with one side when doing the bikini area, but I think that was due to user error, because the other side was fine.) The only issue is that it's not as visible on the skin as this line's other waxes, but since this wax comes in pellet form, I suppose you could even mix it with another colored wax if color and visibility are a concern, although I'm not sure how that would affect the quality of the wax.

Even though the Rose wax is still my favorite from this line, I'd buy the Natural wax again.

Review for Dannon® Light & Fit Greek Yogurt - 11 months, 2 weeks ago
Even before receiving a coupon for Dannon Light & Fit yogurt in my Daisy VoxBox, I've enjoyed it for quite some time.  Very easy way to get more protein in my diet with relatively few calories.  There are also several flavors available, making for plenty of variety.
