Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream

Oily Skinned Ladies this moisturizer-gel is perfect for you!!! its light and cool and feels soo nice on. especially if you leave it in the fridge and put it on right out of the shower (or bath). this leaves my (oily, acne prone skin feeling perfectly balanced. most moisturizers are too heavy and greasy or leave me flaky in areas and oily in other areas but this product hasnt! paid only $7.99 for this at walgreens. another reviewer compared it as a dupe for Cliniques moisture surge and she hit the nail exactly on the head. defanately HG for me!
Misc Beauty Tools -Remington - Smooth & Silky Epilator Kit EP 6025
ldyshallott 1/8/2011 8:06:00 PM
I bought this at walgreens for $24.99. not sure if its the same one (mines a remington), but it looks the same as the picture. it looks super scary and ive heard horror stories about how much it hurts. so after standing and staring at it in walgreens i decided to just suck it up & try it. i enlisted my friend (in case i needed to be held down, or fed a steady shot of vodka) and plugged the sucker in and began. im not gonna lie ladies. . . . THIS THING HURTS!! it brought tears to my eyes. but as someone who is somewhat a baby when it comes to pain,( and also pretty hairy), i just grit my teeth & finished my arms & legs. I looked like a plucked chicken afterwards. and while i did remain pretty hair free for upwards of 2 weeks, i find it does absolutely nothing for exfoliation like shaving does and my legs ended up very dry and ashy looking. extreme PAIN + Tired ashy legs = this thing staying unused in my drawer. I will stick to the inconveniece of shaving.
Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay

I bought this product at whole foods, in thecskincare section, it was $7.00 for 1lb. its a powdered clay, and the directions reccomend mixing equal parts clay with equal parts apple cider vinegar. you can use water too though. I tried the apple cider vinegar mixture and applied it on my face in a pretty thick later, (the package suggests a 1/4 to 1/2 in. thick layer). it felt cool going on but after about 10 minutes it began to itch like crazy, then a few minutes later i could feel the pulsating action they described, (probably all the blood rushing to my skin, lol), it was about 80% of the way dry and i decided to go ahead and rinse it off. man! this stuff is a mission to get off! i might as well used a hammer & chisel to remove it!!! I got it off by holding a washcloth under lukewarm water and just holding it over my face, again & again until the mask is off. here is a tip though: dont use a towel & washcloth you care about. use a crappy one. this product needs to come with some sort of a wooden scoop. it says not to use metal on the package. my skin was left red, but everything does that to me, i slicked on a pretty thick layer of moisturizer and woke up the next morning to very smooth clear soft skin! defanately worth the purchase!!
OMG ladies!! this lipstick is absolutely amazing!! all the positive reviews on here arent lying!! walmart sells this lipstick for 5$. it sells out as soon as they stock it down here and now i know why!! its the perfect red lipstick!! it comes in a matte black and silver tube, very simple but nice, with a little window at the end so you can see the color and whether or not the lipstick is melted or crushed or whatever. if your scared of red lipstick or afraid it will make your teeth look yellow then please please try this one! ive searched and searched for my HG red (mac russian red made me look dead, cliniques angel red made me look like a hag, rimmels temptation brings out every single teeny zit) this is a perfect red. my HG! i am stocking up!
Looks pretty Coppery (and scary) in the put but once applied is a gorgeous shimmery sparkly pinkish gold.
My HG Nude Polish!!!!!
I recieved this in a swap and i love it! its a beautiful sheer cool nude gloss. perfect paired with a dark smokey eye!!
This product comes with both a Tube concealer, and a Teeny Tiny Pencil concealer. Im not sure what the Pencil concealer would be used for, as it is very tiny and dry. i have very oily acne prone skin, i use this as an undereye concealer (i have very dark circles) and this works wonders. i would never use this on a blemish because it contains alot of oils that irrirate my skin. but for dark circles is great!! use a very small amount and blend blend blend because this stuff is very pigmented and very thick!!
I really has high hopes for this product. the thought of a solid shampoo? simply amazing!!!! this is the worst product i have EVER tried on my hair. its drying, and makes my hair stringy. i thought maybe it was just me, so i had my friend test it out on her gorgeous long dark hair and it made her hair stringy too!!! the lush SA told me to break a piece off and add water and try it that way but that was worse. it wouldnt rinse out and i was stuck with half of my head in gooey sticky stringy greenish nasty dreadlocks. awful!
This Tastes and smells like Salmon. UGH!!!!! as one reviewer said above, (and i COMPLETELY agree) this is cheaper and BETTER when handmade yourself. ton of recipies out there, just google "Homemade sugar Lip Scrub".
