I really like this cleanser. It's a no-frills cleanser that does a really good job cleaning and removing makeup.
I really like this as a lightweight summer moisturizer with SFP. I appreciate the fact the the SPF is higher than a lot of drugstore moisturizers. Unlike some reviewers, I've never had any problems with the two part packaging. I didn't think the price was overly expensive. When comparing the cost to an Aveeno or Olay product, the price seems pretty reasonable.
Lip Treatments -Nivea - A Kiss of Protection Sun Protection Lip Care SPF 30

I bought this thinking it was a lipbalm/moisturizer with sunscreen. It is a sunscreen for lips. It is so thick it barely applies.

Goes on smoothly. Blends decently. The variety of colors made it pretty easy to find the matching concealor and pressed powder.
I saw this recommended in a magazine for peeling nails. It's a 10-day two step treatment to strengthen nails. The first step is supposed to nourish the nails. The second step creates a protective barrier. My nails aren't particulary strong but at least they aren't peeling anymore. I wish it stayed on better. I have to redo my nails every couple days because the stuff starts peeling.
I have fine yet thick straight hair. I need something that would increase volume and help hold my style. As far as volume went, it was the same as any mousse. My hair held its style somewhat. Not the miracle product I hoped it to be.

I have fine yet thick straight hair. I wanted a product that would increase volume and help hold my style. This didn't really seem to do either. I now use it on no-style ponytail days.

Hmmm. Pink vasoline. I was using it as a night hand ointment with thin cotton gloves. After three nights, the gloves were pink and my hands were softer and more moisturized but I could have achieved the same results with vasoline.
Cleansers -St. Ives - Elements Protective Cleanser

It's an okay cleanser. Nothing special as far as cleaning goes. The idea of a little sunscreen is nice but at SPF 10, I also apply another sunscreen. I might pick up another bottle if I find it cheap again. CAUTION: It burns if I get it too close to my eyes!
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Wetslicks Amazemint - Un-Wined
Ambam032 9/13/2008 10:37:00 PM
It gives a cool tingle when it's applied. The scent is a little strong but quickly fades. The color goes on just as it appears in the tube. Its amazingly opaque for being a lip gloss. I don't think the color really works on my fair skin. I don't think I'll buy other colors.
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - TruBlend Pressed Powder
Ambam032 6/3/2008 1:23:00 PM
I picked this up because my other pressed powder didn't match well with my TruBlend liquid foundation. I love the color matching system! It matched beautifully. Unfortunately, it completely crumbled the first time I put it in my purse. Won't buy again!
Styling Products -Sunsilk - Daring Volume Volumizing Spray
Ambam032 4/22/2008 11:08:00 PM
This stuff is fantastic! I can't believe a light spray-on product can give such nice volume with a soft texture. I spray a couple pumps around my head, flip and blow-dry and walk away.
Caution: This product contains salicylic acid. Not realizing this, I used it after washing with Olay Clarify & Cleanse cleanser. It started burning immediately.
Polishes -Sally Hansen - Lacquer Shine Nail Color: Gleaming
Ambam032 9/4/2007 7:41:00 PM
Gleaming is a dark hot pink color. 2 coats gives excellent coverage. I applied the Orly Bonder for basecoat and Won't Chip for topcoat and it lasted for a 10 days without chipping.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Therapy Body Lotion
Ambam032 9/4/2007 7:20:00 PM
I like the moisturization this lotion provides. It sinks in nicely and lasts quite awhile. I don't notice the scent, but my husband can't stand the smell.
