Review for Lavanila Laboratories The Healthy Deodorant - 3 weeks, 2 days ago

Review for: Other more...
I was surprised at how well this controlled odor. I’m testing out some non aluminum deodorants and this one was better than Toms at odor control. I used the sport version. I’m using on days I’m not at work as it doesn’t prevent you from sweating (and it’s not it’s purpose).
Review for boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer - 2 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 3
I have normal-dry skin, I'm 47, and I got a deluxe sample from Sephora using a promo code "cleanskin" last week.
I have tried this a few times, and I don't feel it lives up to the hype for me.  I really wanted to love it, and was so glad when Sephora had it as one of their promos so that I could give it a try.
----- Nighttime -----
I tried it as a part of my nighttime routine first.  I used it after serum like I would any moisturizer.  I used it on my face, neck, and chest.  It absorbed really fast I thought.  It didn't really leave my skin feeling tacky like some reviewers have experienced, but it did no feel silky smooth.  After about an hour, I applied another moisturizer.  I think my skin needs a deeper hydration than this can supply.
----- Daytime - No Makeup -----
I then tried it on a day with no makeup.  Again I used after serum on face, neck, and chest.  It absorbed fast (under 30 seconds), and then I applied a face mist and finally my sunscreen.  I didn't feel like my skin was dry nor was it dewy (I rarely get oily).  So this was fine, but didn't seem better than any of my other moisturizers.
----- Daytime - Under Makeup -----
I finally have tried it under makeup, after serum & face mist, but before cc cream.  I choose to not use primer as I had read reviews the tackiness of the product made a great skin prep for makeup.  I used a  the original beautyblender® beauty queen limited edition pink original to apply my  IT Cosmetics® Your Skin But Better™ CC+ Illumination™ with SPF 50+ .  I opted to not apply sunscreen before cc cream as this was in the evening so thought my cc cream would be enough protection.  The  boscia Cactus Water Moisturizer caused my cc cream to pill and created a horrible texture on my skin.  And because my cc cream has the illumination, it seemed to only highlight the problem.  I've been wear this cc cream for some time, and I have never had this happen before.  
----- My Opinion -----
1. It caused my cc cream to pill - YUCK
2. It did not hydrate or moisturize to any fantastic degree - run of the mill
3. It wasn't cooling (maybe if it were refrigerated)
4. I love several of Boscia's products.  Unfortunately this was just not one of them.

Review for: 2.4 FL.OZ. / 70 ML more...
I’ve only tried a small sample of this and I was happy with it. This brand us a little hit or miss with me. I love their Moroccanoil® Treatment Original but I did not like Moroccanoil® Smoothing Mask. The shampoo I liked. I’m not sure if I’ll purchase again as I have others I like more.

Beauty Junkie Expert Level 3
I love the smell of living proof products are great. This is a great shampoo. It doesn’t over strip my hair. I have medium length (at the moment), it’s medium courseness, it i dye it to cover grey. I was happy with this purchase.

Review for Garnier Fructis Volume Extend Shampoo - 2 months, 1 week ago

Best bang for your buck!!! I love this. It has a light green apple smell, and works well at cleaning without stripping it. I love the smell and Garnier Fructis Daily Care Conditioner is the perfect combo. I’ve been using fir years and I will continue to use it.

I typically use a gentle shampoo on my hair, but there are days when I play hard or wear more styling products. These days require a deeper clean, and I reach for head and shoulders. It’s also good when my hair feels more oily thus is great to get back to normal. I’ve been using for years and will continue.

Review for Davines® MELU Shampoo - 2 months, 1 week ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 3
I liked this shampoo, but I didn’t think it was better than a drug store brand in terms of cleaning without stripping and softness. I only was my hair 1-2 per week and look for a gentle shampoo. I have medium thickness hair. I probably won’t purchase again as I feel I can get a cheaper shampoo with same results.

Review for Dermalogica Precleanse - 2 months, 2 weeks ago
Beauty Junkie Expert Level 3
I'm so in love with this oil!  The scent is a citrus that is delightful to smell.  I first apply it to dry skin mostly on my eyes, but sometimes all over my face and neck depending on my mood.  I pat and lightly rub in.  It goes to work right away with sunburn mascara.  Then I add just a bit of water to moisten my hand and lather it up a bit.  I then add my cleanser.  And WOW, no more makeup!  Clean fresh skin.  I love the whole experience of this product.  It hits every point for me from scent, texture, ease of use and it's effective.  I highly recommend this for both the scent and effectiveness at removing mascara.
