Finally Some Beauty Reviews!


Okay, as I promised wayyyy back in August I’m going to review these products! I received them all as a gift for completing the P&G Everyday Challenge hosted by Influenster.

1. Gillette Venus Snap with Embrace

This razor is so easy to use and portable. I’ve already reviewed it once before, so I’m not going to spend a lot of time writing about it again. The only thing I’ve noticed is that if I don’t use it often and if I keep it in the shower, the gel starts sticking to the container and is kind of gross. Nothing huge to complain about though!

2. Olay Complete Moisturizer

I love this stuff. It’s for dry skin and it has SPF in it. My skin tends to get more dry around winter, so I may try to save some of this for then, but it’s still pretty great for now. Even though I like to be tan, I do also want to protect my skin. Just knowing that I’ve taken that extra step and put on moisturizer that will protect me from the sun makes me feel so much better about being exposed to the sun. The only thing that I don’t like is that it smells like sun lotion. Which is okay for now, but I’m not sure how I’ll feel about it if I’m just using it for my dry skin in the winter.

3. Secret Clinical Strength

This deodorant really works great. It goes on nicely and smells pretty good. I’ve basically been using it since I got the box and haven’t noticed anything bad about it. Like all deodorants, it can get on your clothing and leave marks, but that’s easy to fix and avoid. It stops me from sweating and was really great to have when I sat in 80 degree weather at a recent Orioles game. I was sweating like crazy, but I still smelled good!

4. CoverGirl Liperfection Jumbo Gloss Balm

I really like this balmy gloss from CoverGirl. I do wish that they would have let me pick what color I wanted, because this one doesn’t compliment my skin tone that well, but it goes on nicely and stays for a good amount of time. Plus, since it is a balm it leaves my lips feeling very soft. I would definitely buy it again because it doesn’t have the heavy feel of a lipstick and looks very nice when on. Just wouldn’t buy the same color.

5. CoverGirl Lineblast Eyeliner

I liked everything that I got in this box, except for this eyeliner. It doesn’t work at all on me. I don’t know if it is because I also use it with eyeshadow or if it just doesn’t work well. When I put it on, it’s very blotchy and I end up having to wait for it to dry to apply/dab it on the areas that it didn’t cover. It’s sort of annoying and definitely makes other liquid eyeliner products that I’ve tried look a million times better. I’ve only used it a few times, and will probably let it sit in my makeup bag until I run out of eyeliner and don’t have the time or money to go buy more.
