April Firsts and Finals

Firsts
*butter London Double Decker Lashes Mascara  Not too bad.  It gives length, but not a lot of volume.
*Crest 3D Whitestrips  These did seem to make a difference in one application and my teeth felt super clean, almost like I had been to the dentist.
*Mario Badescu Herbal Hydrating Serum  Another product from MB I quite like.  It's hydrating, but light.  I think it will be good in summer.
*Nivea Extended Moisture body lotion  This definitely was 'extended', but I felt like it was sitting on my skin all day.  Not a fan.
*Perricone Hydrating Cloud Cream  Luscious!

Finals
*Biore Charcoal Cleansing Micellar Water  I like this one, it's very refreshing.  It doesn't touch mascara, but is good for face makeup.
*bliss drench & quench  This cream to water hydrator is like magic.
*method pure peace body wash  It smells great!  I'll repurchase.
*Fructis hair mask in papaya  Definite repurchase, my hair loves this.

Faves
*Biore charcoal water, bliss drench, Crest strips, Fructis hair mask, Perricone cream

Feb 1 Firsts and Finals

Firsts
*Lorac CC Cream  It's rather thick and has an odd, chemical smell to it.  It does last all day, though.

Finals
*Hask Coconut Oil shampoo and conditioner  Another Hask product that's amazing.  Smells great, hair feels great.  Hask knows their stuff.
Klorane eye makeup remover  It worked well, but nothing outstanding.
*Maybelline MasterPrecise  All Day Liquid Liner  This one gives my beloved Perversion a run for its money.  Truly lasts all day.  The tube seemed to dry out rather quickly.
*Maybelline MasterPrecise Ink Metallic Liquid Liner  I had the color Cosmic Purple, which was gorgeous... when it worked.  Half the time it was just clear liquid.  The formula clearly separated quickly.
*Urban Decay Perversion liner  LOVE this one and already and a backup in hand.  It applies easily, then doesn't budge.

Faves
*Perversion liner, Hask shampoo/conditioner

*MasterPrecise Ink Metallic liner

Jan 11 Firsts and Finals

Firsts
*bliss that's incredi-peel  Love these and will be watching for a sale.  My face felt very fresh.
CoverGirl Melting Pout  The color 'Gell Yes' was gorgeous.  Unfortunately, the formula isn't good.  It bleeds very badly, which is never a good look.
*Freeman Hydrating Water Gel Mask  My skin didn't look any different, but it felt good.  Freeman's quite reasonable, so I'll probably repurchase this at some point.
*Garnier Whole Blends Green apple & Green tea leave in conditioner  Smells amazing, makes my hair very soft.
*John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Shine Shock  LOVE this!  SO shiny and not greasy.
*l'Oreal Pure-Sugar Scrub  This was quite nice, exfoliating and moisturizing.
*Pantene foam conditioner  It goes on like a mousse, but really conditions hair.  Like this one!

Finals
*Benefit Roller Lash  Probably one of my least favorite mascaras.
*Cetaphil Hydrating Eye Gel-Cream  Nice eye cream.
*Garnier Fructis Smoothing Treat hair mask with avocado  Love this stuff!  Hair is soft, shiny, has added volume.  A definite repurchase!
*Honest Younger Face deep hydration cream  I do not like it on my face, it feels thick.  It's lovely on elbows, though.
*It Superhero mascara  Thoroughly 'meh'.
*It's a 10 hair mask  It moisturized too well, making my hair look greasy.
*Kiehl's Ultimate Strength Hand Salve  This is a favorite on days where I deal with a lot of paper.
*Klorane dry shampoo  Not awful, but not the best I've tried.
*L'Occitane hand cream  A perennial favorite for a reason, it works very well.

Faves
*Fructis avocado mask, incredi-peel, shine shock

*Melting Pout, It's a 10 mask

September Firsts and Finals

Firsts

*Revlon Kiss Exfoliating Balm  YES!  It exfoliates, leaves your lips soft, not gritty, AND it smells amazing. 
*Schick's new bi razor (it's called 'FAB' and it goes both ways, soooo.....)  This was a total miss for me.  I was worried about cutting my legs with the back and forth motion, instead this razor seemed rather dull and didn't do the job without several passes.  Absolutely did not live up to its name. 
*Village Naturals Muscle Relief foaming oil & wash  Very nice, will likely buy this for after Diva's long rehearsals.
*Village Naturals Nighttime Relief foaming oil & wash  I didn't notice any enhanced relaxation in the bath, but I fell asleep quickly, so I'll be purchasing this one.

Finals
*Aveda Shampure  An old favorite, will repurchase.
*Marcelle Micellar water  This pretty well rivals Garnier for me.  It doesn't remove ALL my mascara, but it removes more than most.
*New Evolution hair serum  This is amazing.  Hair is soft, shiny, fluffy, not greasy, and it smells fantastic.  Definite repurchase.
*Simple Micellar water  It's good on makeup (not mascara), but Garnier's still my favorite.

Faves
*New Evo serum, Revlon exfoliating balm, VN oils

Flops
*FAB razor

8/3 Firsts and Finals

Firsts
*

Finals
*Lorac Front of the Line Pro gel liner  The liner was decent, very dark, lasted all day, but it tugged when putting it on.
*tarte lip paint in birthday suit  This color was lovely until it dried down several shades darker.  That was a bummer.  Then it dried out my lips as most mattes do.  The tube itself dried out rather quickly, as well, wasting probably half a tube.  I will not be repurchasing this.
