  • How to use: Use morning and evening, smooth into your face and neck after cleansing, then moisturize. Results keep getting better with continued use.
  • What I Thought: Considering the length of time this product needs to work, 2-4 weeks, the sample I had only lasted me about 4 days.  It smelled rubbery, which was a little bothersome, and it had a silky texture to it which felt almost like a primer.  It felt a bit heavy on my skin after initially applying it, but that soon diminished.  I don't feel I had enough of the product to get the full effects of what it could do.  Based off what I had...
  • I wouldn't buy it. 

  • Retails $3.97 (at Walmart) for 0.042oz.
  • About the product: Long lasting shocking color intensity with kohl Britania High intensity color for an instant color impact Ultra smooth & creamy formula that glides on easily Waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested. Safe for sensitive eyes.

  • What I Thought: This glided on very smoothly without tugging at my skin.  The pigmentation of the eyeliner went on very dark so that I didn't feel the need to reapply it to define what I had already done.  The color stayed all day and didn't smudge, it was like a liquid eyeliner in a stick.  It stayed so well that certain eye makeup removers didn't work well removing it.  Otherwise, it's a fantastic product!
  • I would buy this!

  • Retails $4.47 (at Walmart) for 4.2oz.

  • How to use: Apply to cotton or wool and gently sweep across eyes until all traces of makeup are removed.
  • What I Thought: There is no scent to this and it's definitely gentle.  It didn't cause any sensitivity issues, was non-oily/greasy, and even left my skin feeling refreshed and moisturized.  I was able to get most of the makeup off both of my eyes using one cotton pad.  The only thing was that it didn't do a good job of removing its own brand eyeliner!  I had a really tough time removing the eyeliner I got from them but a different eye makeup remover cleaned it up quickly.  So it's better for light, non-waterproof eye makeup.
  • I would buy this!

  • Retails $1.99 for 0.11oz.

  • What I Thought: The color I got was Sugar Plum which was kind of a dark rose color.  I didn't like the color when I 1st saw it and thought it was going to look terrible on me or too dark but I was wrong!  It glided on softly and creamy leaving good coverage without creasing, and a light shimmer which lasted a good amount of time.
  • I would buy this!

  • Retails $10.99.
  • About the product: The unique bristle pattern allows the synthetic boar’s hair-like bristles to penetrate down to the scalp, distributing hair’s natural moisturizers and leaving hair with a sleek, lustrous shine. Plus, when blowing dry the brush dries hair 20% faster (Tested versus a leading brush) due to its aerodynamic Eco-Vent™ design. Less time drying allows for less heat damage and quicker prep time!

  • What I Thought: I didn't feel this worked well with my hair at all.  It's a good brush, don't get me wrong, just not for me.  I felt like it was just flattening my hair to my head when using and very hard to brush out my tangles, making them a bit worse by pulling at them.  It did do a nice job when my hair was dry making it very sleek, but it gave my hair no body at all.  Maybe if my hair was longer, or not over processed it would be a better match for me but I feel detangler brushes give me more body and work better with my hair.
  • I wouldn't buy this.

  • Retails $3.39 for 1 box of 20 tea bags.

  • What I Thought: I was expecting this to either be very sweet because it using the term candy cane, or very pungent, as most peppermint teas are.  To my surprise, this green tea balanced all the flavors well.  It is a sweet, but mild, dessert tea.  Perfect for the holidays or a cold winter night.  None of the flavors were too overpowering.

  • What I Thought: I got these in strawberry but for some reason I kept thinking they were cherry.  They smelled good but were very soft and incredibly chewy, not good for someone with TMJ.  I felt like they lacked flavor and tasted quite waxy.  There's really no nutritional value to them at all and I ate them just for the sake of eating something as a snack.  There are a lot better, more nutritious, more flavorful snacks out there with less calories than these, considering 10 pieces are 150 calories.
  • I wouldn't buy this. 

  • Retails $4.98 (at Amazon.com) for 0.62oz.
  • About the product: Versatile thyme has a  light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic.  Use in egg dishes, hearty soups and oven-roasted chicken.  Harvested for the highest All Natural quality and purest flavor.

  • What I Thought: I found a recipe for Lemon Thyme Chicken Tenders that looked really good so we decided to cook some up.  It calls for fresh thyme, so we substituted 1 tbsp of the McCormick thyme.  The thyme, chicken, and lemon complimented each other well making a tangy, aromatic dish. Compared to fresh herbs it was lacking in flavor, as all dried herbs are, but it still had enough punch to it to be distinguished in the dish and is a great product overall.
