Hairsprays that don’t leave your hair stiff aren’t as hard to find as they used to be. We tried L’Oreal’s Studio Line Mega Hairspray which promises to give hold and shine. It definitely worked well and gave touchable hold. However, the scent was fairly strong and lingered throughout the day. So if you’re not into heavy fragrance in hair products it may not be for you.

We tried Olay’s Total Effects 7 Wet Cloths Cleanser since it promised to not only remove makeup, but also fight 7 signs of aging. Like Olay 2-in-1 Daily Facial Cloths, we thought that these cloths worked wonderfully to remove makeup, but it does sting if you get the cleanser in your eyes. We thought that these cloths were great for our skin’s texture as well.

One of the keys to giving yourself a professional looking manicure is taking care of your cuticles. We tried Sally Hansen’s Instant Cuticle Remover and found it to be pretty effective. It’s said to remove cuticles in 15 seconds and contains chamomile and aloe to soothe the skin. It did the job and didn’t leave our skin peeling like some overly aggressive cuticle removers can. You also get a generous amount in the bottle so it will last for months. The directions say to use with a cuticle pusher, but we found that to get results like the pros it’s best to use with a cuticle remover tool (just be careful!)

When you see a mascara that says it will make your lashes 60% longer with 50% more curl, you’ve got to try it. The lycra in this mascara is said to work by keeping eyelashes flexible, while stretching and holding them in shape for 14 hours. It also contains Vitamin E & Panthenol. What we loved about this mascara was that it never left our lashes brittle. Although it did make our lashes longer, we didn’t quite see a 60% increase. Be careful when applying this mascara – since it makes your eyelashes curl more, it’s easier to accidentally get mascara on your eyelids.

Olay has been known for their moisturizers for quite some time. We tried their All Day Moisturizer with Sunscreen for normal skin, which has vitamins E, B3, & C. Although this formula was for normal skin, we thought it was moisturizing enough to get away with for dry skin as well. We really loved what it did for the texture of our skin, and it’s always nice to have sunscreen and moisturizer in one step. We all know that we’re supposed to put sunscreen on by itself, but how many of us really do it? At least with Olay you have a little protection. Although this product works wonderfully for normal and dry skin types, we found that for acne prone skin, it can cause break outs.
