This is a quick rundown of products I have used up and how I feel about them:
(not a sponsored post)

1. L'Oreal Ever Pure Blonde Brass Banisher Shampoo and Conditioner ($5.99 each)
Miracles beyond all miracles, I actually finished both of these at the same time!  That never happens for me, I always seem to run out of conditioner first!

I really liked these and will buy them again.  out of the tubes/bottles they were a light lavender color, which is great for getting rid of all the unwanted brassiness that blonde hair gets.  It was gentle enough and not too purpley that it could be used daily.  it also seemed to help keep my hair hydrated without weighing it down.  I would recommend for any fellow ash blondes out there.

2. Lush Dream Cream ($27.95)
I love lush products and absolutely think they are worth the money, most of the time... This was one product that fell a little short for me.  If you're not familiar with lush they are a great brand that sells hand made, natural, cruelty-free products.  this lotion didn't have much of a scent, which was nice, but wasn't very hydrating.  the formula was a little more watery than i need.  Overall it was a nice light lotion that din't bother my sensitive skin.  However i just needed to use too much product to really hydrate.  Won't be repurchasing.

3.Crest Pro Health Whitening Tooth Paste ($4.99/2)
Ok, so it's tooth paste.  No miracle product or anything but what I love about this stuff compared to other toothpastes is the added "pro health" benefits.  I find that I have sensitive teeth and this paste seems to help with that, in addition to preventing build up and gingivitis.  The whitening power isn't going to work as a replacement for a real bleaching kit, but it works great at removing the day to day stains from drinking too much coffee, tea, etc.  I also love the minty flavor, not overbearing at all.

4. Sephora Radiance Flash Spray (similar $10)
Apparently Sephora doesn't make this anymore.  I think I've had this bottle for 2 years, but that is honestly how long it has taken me to get through it.  I didn't use it everyday so this bottle lasted forever!  I was sad they don't make it anymore as it worked really well to keep make up fresh all day.  I've since purchased the Ulta version and find it is very similar.

5. Maybelline lash Sensational Mascara in Waterproof Black ($6.99)
This mascara is wonderful, really everything you could want.  Lengthens and thickens lashes without clumping or giving you the dreaded spider lash.  For mascaras I alternate between prestige and drug store brands, but this may be one of my favorites yet.  Bold enough for special occasions but also nice for day to day.  Currently using Tarte's Lights, Cameras, Flashes but will definitely re-buy when I need mascara again.

6. Secret Scent Expressions Invisible Solid in Ooh-La-La-lavender ($4.29)
Like the tooth paste, this isn't one of the more exciting items to review, but it works really well.  Secret Scent Expressions are one of the few deodorants I find that really works for me and I've been using it for years now.  If you aren't careful it does leave the white marks on clothes, so i try and apply and then let it set before getting dressed.  Also not crazy about some of the ingredients, but for now it's effectiveness is worth the risk.

What are some products you've used through that you'd recommend? Or didn't like?
