Make sure and give this product a try and don’t give up if it seems to make a white head worse initially – this happened the first day I used it and the white head ended up draining and drying out within 24 hours.”

3. Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater
A refreshing, hydrating mist that gives tight and uncomfortable skin a pick me up.
Reviewed by Haley O.: “I have combination skin. During the summer, it gets oily very fast and during the winter it is extremely dull and dry looking. My skin is sensitive and most of the time has a pinkish red color to it when it is so dry and irritated. However after using this spray, my skin is much healthier looking and has a dewy, fresh look. It even helped calm down the redness. I haven’t had this for a full week yet and I’m head over heels in love and can’t wait to order more of this stuff. Holy grail in my skincare routine now!”

6. St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse
This self tanner is a super-lightweight, easy-to-apply, tinted mousse that dries within a minute and leaves you with a rich, bronze glow.
Reviewed by Ashley D.:”I am a big fan of st tropez products, and this is my favorite. because of the bronzer in the foam, it’s easy to see where you have applied it and avoid streaking. It looks natural and even when dried. You do still have to go very light around the ankles and knees as it continues to get darker throughout the day and those are the areas it’ll show, but that’s the same with any self tanner. There is a scent to it, but it’s not overly powerful and fades after the first shower. It dries quickly and I haven’t noticed it run off on clothes or sheets.”

7. La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF 60 Face Sunscreen
This sunscreen is specially formulated for your face, using Cell-Ox Shield technology with antioxidants. It works to visibly reduce the appearance of sun damage and is light enough to be worn under makeup.
Reviewed by Kelly:”Finally found a daily sunscreen that does not make my skin more oily than it already is! This sunscreen is great – no white residue. Go to for daily use over the summer and sunny days throughout the rest of the year. Highly recommend. Also scores well on that EWG sunscreen rating with a 3 (1 is best, 10 is worst). I previously used EltaMD UV Clear sunscreen and really liked it, but then when I saw it had a EWG rating of 8, I thought I better find something better since I’m using this daily.”

8. stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
Stila’s easy glide, precision eyeliner pen boasts no smudging, feathering, or running.
Reviewed by Taylor R.:”I literally just received this eye liner in the mail, tried it on, and had to write a review! Awesome product, buy it now. Very dark, very easy to put on (nice sharp point) and I’m a very happy customer. I have not, however, spent a day with this on my lids to see how it holds up, or tried to get it off( I usually wash with the oil cleansing method so I don’t anticipate any trouble getting the liner off) so I will have to get back to you on those situations….but if you want a precise, clean, dark and fabulous cat eye, this is the liner for you.
Ok, after a one hour long Body Combat class in the middle of summer in a crowded room with hardly any air-conditioning I was VERY curious to see how this eyeliner would hold up. At the end of the class I checked it out and there was NO smudging or flaking. That is seriously impressive!”

9. Baxter of California Clay Pomade
This men’s hair wax has a texturizing formula that gives hair strong, pliable hold with a matte finish.
Reviewed by Elmer E.:”I’ve used gel, glue, wax, pomade, hairspray and I couldn’t find the right balance of hold, more mated look and not feeling like a rock. This seems to hit all those marks well. It’s a small container but I didn’t have to use much to hold in place. And I have medium to longish hair (Hispanic male wavy thick hair). I used another brand and it was super greasy whenever I ran my hair through it: with this one, none of that problem. Definitely give it a try”

Reviewed by ShannonElizabeth:”great product that really gives you that fresh clean hair look. I have used 100s of dry shampoo and this one works the best in my opinion. After using it I can still run my fingers through my hair, something i cant do with other brands such ad Dove. It not only gets rid of the oily look in my hair but it also give my hair body. I even use it when my hair is clean and just want a little extra volume without having to worry about hair spray weighing me down.”

Reviewed by Brittany:”The results of this dryer speak for themselves. My hair dries very smoothly now. It looks as if I’ve used a straightening iron — if not better. I have a chi straightener and I haven’t used it since I got this blow dryer. It’s great. It’s not super heavy like people have said. I’ve had no problems keeping it in my hand and my arm doesn’t get sore & I don’t work out like I used to. My arms get only the exercise from picking up my 20 lb toddler occasionally through the day.”

15. blinc Mascara
This next-level mascara forms tiny, water-resistant tubes around your lashes so that the mascara won’t run, smudge, clump, or flake.
Reviewed by TJD :”For the record I am very picky when it comes to reviewing products; however, this is the best mascara I have ever used. I have spent hundreds on mascara over the years and have never been satisfied until now. This mascara holds up in the heat, through tears, during workouts and handles daily wear without so much as a smudge or a flake. Normally when you have that type of coverage you can’t get it off when you want it off. True to its ad it comes off with water and rubbing. If you haven’t checked into this product line you should!”
