I purchased Bellabe through QVC, before I realized you could buy another brand just like it for a $1 through ebay. Oh well. That being said, I do really like this product. It's easy to use and definitely works. I use it all over my face, except the eyebrows. It isn't a one-swip-you're-done product, but after using it on the area for a few seconds the hair is gone! It hurts a little at first, but soon disappears and you don't even notice it after a couple tries. I use it every night and will continue to do so. I love not having to worry about the peach fuzz that was there before!
To me, this smells clean/fresh, floral, and feminine. It stays all day. I just put a little behind my ears and above my decolletage and I'm good to go! I get lots of compliment and questions, which is never a downside. I can see how those with sensitive smellers might find it a bit overwhelming sniffing it in the tin/bottle, but it's just right for me! Give it a try!
Bought this to wear my thick, very long hair in a chignon to my office christmas party. I cannot believe how well these work! Do simply as the directions say, and these two little miracles hold up ALL that hair like nobody's business! Very secure. Just make sure to screw both of them where one point of the pin is grabbing the hair on your head, and the other is grabbing the hair in the bun. Makes a great stocking stuffers!
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Oil Free Moisture - SPF 15

Great product. I use Proactiv and needed an effective oil-free moisturizer to keep my skin from drying out and peeling AND not exacerbate my oily t-zone. I was skeptical because Neutrogena products usually do not agree with my skin, but purchased anyway. With first use, I was surprised how this felt on my skin. Almost, strangely enough, oily feeling but not (hard to explain). I was nervous how my skin would react after the first application, but I never had a minute's problem! It just absorbed into my skin, giving me a nice, well-moisturized, and healthy glow. My skin stays soft, moisturized, and non-oily in my problem zones. Been using for months and just repurchased. I almost feel I can't live without this stuff now! Give it a shot!
Bought this product by mistake, thinking I was purchasing the famous Rosebud Salve. I'm glad I made that mistake. This makes my lips so soft and smooth, giving them a better-than-natural, non-sticky sheen, which other lip balms couldn't give. In the past, I have used vasaline as a lip treatment and did not get the same results as using this salve. I believe it's a direct results of the extra nourishing ingredients, including lanolin oil, cotton seed oil, fruit extracts, and jojoba esters. I have also used this on my constantly chapped knuckles, and over the course of an evening received smoothing results. You can definitely use this anywhere your skin isn't happy. Give it a try.
Mascara -Shiseido - The Makeup Mascara Base [DISCONTINUED]

HG!! I try to play up my eyes and love the "natural eye makeup with long, curled lashes" look. Other mascaras in the past either clumped, were difficult to remove, or didn't hold that curl my naturally long lashes needed. I decided to purchase this stuff, which is now marketed as "Nourishing Mascara Base". It lives up to all my expectations and more. My eyelashes hold that "just used an eyelash curler" look all day long. It doesn't clump AT ALL, lengthens just a little (you can build it up), and it's clear. You can wear this with or without mascara. Right now, I wear a volumizing mascara over it and it works out wonderfully. No flakes, easy to remove when using eyemakeup remover. I definitely will be repurchasing this stuff again. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a strong curl, with just a little bit of extra length to their natural lashes.
I have an oily t-zone with adult acne. I purchased this product after a TERRIBLE experiences with Clinique (broke me out everywhere) and Lexli (burned, made my skin peel and caused painful, cystic acne). I purchased this because of its guarantee and the recommendations of my friends. I needed something to work! Within the first month I still had severe breakouts, but the pain was gone (thank goodness). So I stuck with this stuff. After eight months of religious use, my face is clear! I still have the occassional zit, but they go away. This stuff is not for everyone. It will dry out your skin if you do not use a moisturizer with spf. I pair it with Cetaphil in the winter and Neutrogena oil free in the summer months, and my skin stays soft and moisturized. You MUST stick with a routine for it to work. And it could take as long as six months to a year in order to finally see the end results. It will slowly clear your acne. With each month that passed, I saw results. That's why I only use these products on my face.
I have below shoulder length, wavy, highlighted hair that is rarely exposed to a heated styling tool. My stylist recommended a high-end moisturizing shampoo and conditioner considering my ends were a little dry, but money is tight. So, I splurged on the conditioner and went to the drugstore and purchased the trial size of this shampoo. Big mistake! My hair became dry, dry, dry! The top half of my hair was okay, but the bottom half felt like straw, was a tangled mess, and had absolutely no shine at all! I even use a salon leave in conditioner after the shower, and it did nothing to help! I got tired of feeling like a I had a big bush on top of my head and went to my salon to purchase the recommended high-end shampoo. After one use, my hair is almost back to normal. Do yourself a favor and back away from this bottle!
First of all, my lashes are long, full, and kinda straight. I curl them every morning, but by the end of the day they are back to that blah, just-above-my-lash-line look. I also like my mascara to give a little volume. Ordered this product because it was suppose to do it all (lengthen, curl, volume, and condition). When I first opened the box, I was turned off because it's literally just a tube of mascara with purple pleather (?) sown on. Not sure what I was expecting, but definitely not that. The applicator is skinny, and the mascara itself seemed to be on the dry side. So, I curled my eyelashes, applied the mascara, and was sadly disappointed. It didn't add any volume at all and barely any length. By the end of the day, the curl had fallen, but the mascara was barely holding it up better than no mascara at all. I started using this as a base, and applying other volumizing mascaras over it, which seemed to do okay. But needless to say, not impressed with the product alone. At all. Didn't do what it said, so I will continue on to other product that will (hopefully) give me bigger and better lashes.
