WEN Cleansing Conditioner
Description: Discover why "friends don't let friends use shampoo." Chaz Dean's revolutionary Cleansing Conditioners eliminate ordinary shampoo with a lather-free formulation that won't sacrifice the integrity and beauty of your hair. The WEN system was created with a perfect balance of ingredients, including herbs and natural elements, to not only cleanse your hair and scalp but moisturize, soothe and add sheen as well. All WEN Cleansing Conditioners are color-safe and so versatile they can be used by anyone.
  • More Info: WEN is a single product that both cleanses and conditions, without the use of damaging detergents found in shampoos. Acai fruit extract, amino acids, cupaucu seed butter, goji berry fruit extract, hydrolyzed soy protein, and white tea leaf extract.
Fun Fact: WEN is "NEW" spelled backwards. The concept of not using shampoo is something Chaz Dean has been implementing since 1993. WEN cleanses with astringent and antibacterial properties without lathering.
  • To Use: Rinse hair thoroughly, then apply 10 to 40 pumps to your scalp, massaging thoroughly. The amount of pumps you'll use will depend on your hair length. You're supposed to apply it to your hair in four sections (top, each side, back). Then massage it in for 1 to 3 minutes. Comb through hair and leave on for 3 to 5 minutes (or longer if you can; the longer the better the results). Rinse well. Apply half a pump to a full pump as a leave-in conditioner to soaking wet hair, if you wish.
  • My Thoughts: I am crazy about this stuff, i just had to learn how to use it first. The first time I used it, I was all "WTH? my hair looks like crap!" but my mom is addicted to this stuff and told me I needed to watch the instructional video. Do you know how stupid I felt having to watch an instructional video to WASH MY HAIR? Totally worth it. It takes a lot longer, so I save it for when I'm not in a hurry, but it makes my hair look UHmazing.
  • Full Sized: 6 fl oz @ $18 (this is the smallest size the Cleansing Conditioner comes in).
  • Size I Received: 6 fl oz

LAURA GELLER Baked Marble Eyeshadow in Toasted Biscotti 
Description: Laura Geller Baked Eyeshadows are made in Italy using an unprecedented baking technique to create marbleized pigments in a variety of hues for any look.
  • More Info: Luxurious color glides on effortlessly with a silky finish. Its versatile formula can be used dry for creamy color payoff, or wet for long-lasting wear.  Vitamin E and jojoba seed oil are key ingredients.
  • More Info: Available in an array of rich tones and split pans, the marbleized colors offer endless possibilities when it comes to mixing and matching to complement any skin tone.
  • Fun Fact: The unique baking process that creates Laura Geller Baked Eyeshadows transforms the liquid base into a fine powder. Each shadow starts off as a swirly liquid pigment, which is baked on a terracotta pan for 24 hours by Italian artisans. Each one is hand-finished for the silkiest results.
  • To Use: Using an eyeshadow brush, sweep color across the entire eyelid, blending outwards. For best results, prep lids with primer.
  • My Thoughts: These shades are shimmer free, so they're a great workday staple. No brainer to blend these together for a simple and quick polished look. I keep this one on the table by my mirror so if I'm in a rush I can pop this on and be good to go with a minimum of effort. Silky application and good staying power (I've only used it with a lid primer) I LOOOOVE the little mirror in the lid since my eyesight is horrid and it makes application super easy.

  • To Use: Massage into skin where needed or use your fingers to smooth Argan Oil through your hair.
  • My Thoughts: The first company to really be known for using argan oil, and definitely one of the best. You can use this stuff for EVERYTHING. Hair, skin, cuticles, nails- you name it. A desert island staple if there ever was one.

SUPERSMILE Professional Whitening Toothpaste in Original Mint 
  • Description: Created by Dr. Irwin Smigel, the world-renowned "Father of Aesthetic Dentistry," Supersmile Professional Whitening Toothpaste removes superficial stains, such as those caused by coffee, tea, tobacco and red wine, for noticeably whiter teeth and includes sodium bicarbonate, providing fresher breath.
  • More Info: Supersmile whitens teeth and effectively restores bonding, porcelain veneers and dentures to their original color by removing extrinsic stains. The proprietary blend of Calprox and baking soda freshens breath and helps to maintain healthy gums. Fluoride works to protect teeth from cavities while calcium, phosphates and magnesium combine to strengthen and remineralize tooth enamel.
  • Fun Fact: The protein pellicle is a thin layer of protein that binds stains to the tooth's surface. Unlike most commercial toothpastes, Supersmile is formulated without silica, which is commonly used to scrape the protein pellicle from tooth enamel, making it 75 percent less abrasive than the standard established by the American Dental Association.
  • To Use: Use a pearl-sized drop of toothpaste on a dry toothbrush and brush in a circular motion for two minutes then rinse with water. Brush at least twice a day.
  • My Thoughts: Yes, it's crazy expensive for toothpaste, but it truly is effective. Unlike most whiteners, this one actually works on caps and bonding! Whoo hoo!

  • More Info: With a little gentle smudging, you can transform your everyday look from subtle to sultry, perfect for that big night out. Long-wear and professional quality, this eyeliner is extremely long lasting. Jojoba and other natural oils, lubricants and slip builders are the key ingredients.
  • More Info: The liners are available in more than 15 brilliant colors to compliment any look. In the October 2011 New Beauty Test Tube - QVC Limited Edition shipment, everyone received one of three different shades of the Mally Evercolor Starlight Eyeliners.
  • To Use: The liners glides on easily and can be sharpened with any type of sharpener, although it is recommended that you chill the product before sharpening.
  • My Thoughts: A really great eyeliner, I just wish they hadn't felt in necessary to put it in not one, but TWO other Test Tubes! (A QVC one and a non-QVC one.) Since I'm a religious eyeliner user it certainly won't go to waste, however. Smooth, creamy application that smudges easily for a smoky eye without getting all over your face (ahem, Elizabeth Arden, I'm looking at you!)

  • More Info: Working as both a shampoo and shower gel, the formula cleanses and conditions the skin and hair. Vitamins B5, vitamin E, and allantoin are the key ingredients.
  • More Info: This playful blue hue and snowy fragrance are symbolic of a time when snowmen, sleds, innocent snowball fights - and of course, snow angels - ruled the winter months, evoking a sense of childhood nostalgia.
  • Fun Fact: Philosophy uses children's pictures and lowercase writing on its packaging to symbolize the simple pleasures in life and remind everyone of the genuine curiosity and wisdom that is the childhood consciousness in us all.
  • To Use: Apply to wet body or scalp. Lather, rinse and repeat as desired. If using as a bubble bath, simply drizzle a generous amount under running water.
  • My Thoughts: I am a complete JUNKIE for their 3 in 1, but I prefer their food scents over the more perfumey ones. This one is a nice middle ground and smells just kinda, well, clean. Still not one I'd buy a full sized one, though I know a ton of people who ADORE the scent- it's just my own personal quirk, I suppose.
