So far my HG mascara!!! Better than Benefits They're Real and Loreal Million Lashes. I only use the thicker brush. Doesn't clump, dries fast and doesn't smear. I've used it for a few days and so far love it!
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Shimmer Strips in Miami Strip / Healthy Glow Bronzer

LOVE this!! Read the reviews first and this is now a HG!! It is shimmery but just enough. I have even worn it without foundation on and my skin still looked good. Haven't used it as a highlighter yet but will soon. Was using Cover Girl one (see my reviews) but it was too dark and wasn't even the darkest they offer.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner
debbrumb 5/14/2012 11:19:00 PM
I LOVE this!! I have very dry, damaged, wavy hair and this worked like a charm. Smells great, sinks in and doesn't weigh down hair. I started using Garnier Hello Hydration and it wasn't even close. I try to deep condition my hair at least weekly but mostly twice a week adding olive or emu oil to the mask.
I got this in kit with meltdown, blush, lip and eye pencil, eye crayon, 4 color concealer and powder. This does cover well if I use a color concealer also. I have very dark sun spots and this does cover but not perfectly. I use a make up brush to put it on which I think makes it blend well. I wish it came alittle darker. It also isn't exactly a matte finish like my Make Up Forever HD powder/fondation does but its not shiny either. This compact is huge though!!
39 yr old/olive skin/no acne just small bumps....I've used this in the 90s for minor acne but didn't see a large improvement. Don't remember it doing wonders but decided to try it again. Have been using it for a week and it does burn alittle but not horrible. The daily moist. combats that and it has a SPF. After 2 days my skin looked incredible smooth and still does. I've only gotten one pimple on my chin and my skin is drying out but with it getting hotter outside that is ok. One complaint is it feels like it leaves a residue. Recommend getting it off Ebay, much cheaper!! UPDATE: The only breakout I got was a pimple on my chin. The second week my neck was more sensitive so I skipped the repair lotion on it. My sun spots are def lighter! And my skin is still smooth.
Holy eye burn batman!! I used a sample of this and my eyes were burning until I got it rinsed off. It did get all the eye make up off but it burned like crazy until then. It also got my face make up off.
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Dickinson's Witch Hazel

Used for sun spots, witch hazel and lemon juice. I read about mixing these for sun spots a week ago and already my spots are fading. I have been using Obagi but this works much quicker and is def cheaper!! Witch hazel does make a great toner also.
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula
debbrumb 3/30/2012 1:58:00 AM
LOVE this lotion! I got it after reading the reviews looking for a good lotion for dry skin during the winter. I love the smell, its definitely cocoa. It sinks in and isn't greasy but does moisturize. I use this during the day when I don't want to use a baby lotion or perfumed lotion and use my J&J cocoa baby oil/gel at night.
I got this in a beauty tube from QVC. It leaves my skin so fresh and soft like I just got a facial. Did make my skin a little red for about 30 mins then went away. The price is outragous so other than a sample I would not spend the money for it.
Bronzers -Cover Girl - Trublend Bronzer in Golden Sunrise
debbrumb 3/13/2012 9:21:00 PM
I agree that it does come on very heavy but not really orange on me. I am olive/tan skin with light brown hair and it does look dark on me too. I mix this with my body lotion and it looks great. There is alot of product so for the money it is a bargain. I do mix this in my Bare Essentuals fondation since I am between colors and their bronze is too dark for me. Wish this came in a better carrying case!!
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
debbrumb 3/13/2012 9:15:00 PM
If you can't find a beauty use for this product you just aren't human!!!!!! This is a do-all product!!! I put it on wet cotton pads and take off my make-up including my waterproof mascara with no problems. I use it on my cuticles. Put it in my hair and let it set for 30-45 mins and rinse it out and makes my hair super soft. Mix it with my body lotion at night (too oily for the day). I did use it during the cold weather on my face at night along with Vit E oil. Works great on surgery scars also.
Eye Makeup Remover -Signature Club A - Peach and cream meltdown
debbrumb 2/13/2012 12:29:00 AM
I got this in a kit with the wonderwheel, lip stick, eye/lip liner, foundation, powder and blush. It smells like burnt plastic and peach. The peach part smells ok but the plastic part got to me. It does take off my make-up including waterproof but takes some work for the eyes. Nothing any better than Ponds in my opinion. Still need to wash it off, just a wet cotton round doesn't get it off easily.
I use this about once a week. Like most tanners you have to wait a few minutes to get dressed so I do it at night when I am not in a rush. The smell does seem to linger thru the night but it doesn't smell that bad. Not great but not bad either. It does sparkle but isn't noticable. Is streak free like the bottle says and lasts about 4 days. Doesn't dry my skin out but I always use my Jergens coco lotion in the morning.
I got these in the Argan Oil try me pack with the capsules and oil eye roller. The remover pads are far too oily for me. I used one with a regular cotton pad and it was still too oily. It did wash off but for someone with contacts it was a disaster. They didn't take off my make-up any better than the Almay ones. I will stick to my Neutrogena wipes.
I've been using this for 2 weeks. I got it from a derm office for about $80. I have small sun spots on my forehead and both cheeks are completely covered. The spots are getting lighter gradually but its not an overnight difference. I did use Ambi for awhile and didn't notice much difference either. Most reviewers said their skin got red and flaky. I only use it in the morning and my skin does get red but goes away in an hour or so and hasn't gotten flaky at all. I will do another update in a few months.
