I love TBS body butters, especially this scent. However, I can see how the consistency may feel heavy and greasy to some. To me it feels rich and moist. The scent always takes me back to my trips to Asia.
I love this cleanser and this whole line of products. The cleanser is light and washes off well. My skin has never looked better. My aesthetician noticed too!
Moisturizers -Meaningful Beauty by Cindy Crawford - Night Fluide

I love this product and this entire line! This moisturizer works beautifully on my sensitive, combo skin. It is light. I think my skin looks better than ever with this line.
I'll agree with others that this is the best mascara out there. Usually I have no problem with mascaras lengthening, but it's the volumizing that is the problem. This mascara gives me beautiful volume and length, and it doesn't look stiff or spindly. I love the brush that really separates the lashes, but you do have to get used to the clunky size of the tube. You can use 1 coat for a more natural look, and 2 for more drama. I have not tried 3, but probably would still work fine for even more pop.
I used regular clear mascara and also tried a brow gel by Anastasia. I like MAC's better. It keeps my brows in place and looks completely natural, but beautifully groomed. You don't need to use much. If I do, it takes off my brow powder.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 70

I liked the Dry Touch SPF 45, evn though it did settle into any fine lines. I found this SPF 70 at Costco and bought it because it was a good deal, thinking it would feel the same on as the SPF 45. Was I wrong. I find this greasy (don't know why others don't) and it makes my makeup slide right off. I'll just use it on my chest. Needless to say, my huge purchase from Costco will be lasting a very long time!
This sunscreen leaves my face soft and moisturized. It doesn't have the white cast and does not settle in the fine lines like so many others do. Love it.
This is a beautiful and exotic scent. It lasts all day on me! It is very unique and really smells like an oriental rain scent. Although I usually wear it in the daytime, it can be worn at night just fine and also at any time of year. Besides the above, you can't beat the price! I wish they made lotion and body cream too.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - BareMinerals foundation #2.3 Medium Beige

I have used many mineral foundations over the years, but this color and BE work best for me. I looks the most natural and matches my skin beautifully. It doesn't look mask-like or have that white cast, as I get with other mineral foundations. I'm glad that BE has more color choices now.
This is a refreshing and modern scent, like White Linen, but more contemporary. Great for day wear in moderate temperatures. The body lotion is heavenly too!
I used to wear this a lot when I was younger, but now I am really sick of the scent. It is too heavy and sweet for me. Primarily too sweet because I like heavy scents like Paloma Picasso. It's just the combination of heavy and sweet that doesn't work for me. I have some of the lotion, body cream and perfume spray, but when I wear it, it just isn't me, However, I do like Obsession for Men (on men).
This is a really unique and fresh smelling fragrance. It reminds me of a spring day in the Orient. I got it as a GWP and usually forget that I have it, but will try to wear it more often. It is not a warm weather fragrance, but perfect for Spring.
This fragrance is too sweet for me. It reminds me of an old lady. I received it as a gift and have forced myself to wear it, and then I ask why, when there are so many other winter frangrances that I'd rather wear?
I received this as a gift and have tried to make myself like it for so long, but can't! Someone below described it perfectly - floral, but with the smell of decaying fruit! Something about it just reminds me of something dead. What a shame because it was a gift and in such a beautiful bottle.
Absolutely the sexist frangrance that I've ever worn! I wear it on special days, so that it always feels like a treat. It lasts a long time, especially when you layer it with the other products. It's heavy and perfect for the winter months, but I wouldn't wear it in warmer weather.
