Just finished up Shea Moisture Curl & Shine Shampoo, Burt's Bees More Moisture Conditioner, Physician's Formula Organic Mascara and a powder compact by Carmindy for Sally Hansen. I've been trying hard to shop my bathroom closet and get through all of those half-used bottles and tubes before they expire.
It's embarrassing how may bottles that are half full or less stacked up in the closet. I'll eventually make my way through it all. Eventually.

Review: I have purchased various Shea Moisture products over the years. Thumbs up on the entire line. The shampoo and conditioner are very thick and smell fantastic. Most shampoos are mostly water, you get your money's worth in this small bottle. Since it is so thick, use half the amount of what you would normally use. Rub it between your hands and then work it into your hair. Don't plop a squirt of it directly on your scalp, you need to work it through your hair.
This version is made for thick, curly hair. My hair isn't curly but I use it because it is so rich and moisturizing. It made an immediate difference on my hair. Recommended.

Review: I'm a big fan of the Burt's Bees conditioner line. It is another very thick hair product that actually saves you money since it's not watered down. This smells great. Just a dab will do you since it's so thick. Start at the bottom of your hair and work your way up. I also used this as on occasional leave in. Recommended.

Review: I'm a long-time user of the Organic Wear mascara line. Nearly a decade now? Before I went paraben free and used regular mascaras, I was losing several eyelashes every week. Since changing to this mascara, I lose one or two a month. This was a moment of enlightenment for me.
I've tried most of the different versions that have come out, but I always return to the original or the Jumbo Lash. I wouldn't recommend their Fake Out mascara with fibers for daily use. Those little fibers fall off and into your eyes. The original is a holy grail product for me. I take it off with grape see oil (another holy grail product). A couple swipes and it's gone. Recommended. Try it!
Sally Hansen Natural Beauty by Carmindy Pressed Powder.
This one makes me a sad panda. I was a huge fan of the Carmindy line of cosmetics that Sally Hansen put out. The ingredients were great, they were quality products and reasonably priced. Unfortunately, Carmindy stopped partnering with Sally Hansen to start her own line (which apparently did not take off) and these wonderful products were discontinued. I was very upset. They gave me the perfect makeup line and then took it all away. You can still find the remnants of this line on Amazon and Ebay but I recommend against purchasing. They are near or at the end of their shelf life. I just threw away a couple of unopened lip glosses I had bought in my frenzy to grab what was left. I'm going to sit in a corner and pout for a while.
