Treatments -Sally Hansen - Age Correct Growth Treatment [DISCONTINUED]
Tina68 5/17/2004 10:10:00 AM
I bought this after reading all the reviews here and I really like this polish. I've been wearing it as a basecoat under OPI's Tutti Fruitti Tonga and my nails look smooth and the polish went on streak-free. I've also worn Age Correct on its own and it's a very YNBB colour. Two thumbs up!
Lotions/ Creams -BeneFit Cosmetics - Bathina Sandal Scandal

I love this stuff. I slather it on my feet in the night, or sometimes in the morning, and it makes my feet so soft and supple and a joy to touch. It is the best thing for me to help maintain pedicures in the summertime. It is pricey, but to me it is well worth it since it keeps my feet looking so good. And the smell ... mmm. I love it!
I bought this mascara after reading the reviews on MUA and I am a believer! My lashes look very long, are separated (no clumping!) and the curl lasts for most of the day amd more importantly there is no smudging or smearing. Although Lash Out doesn't plump my lashes up (and it doesn't say it will either) my lashes look full and lush. I love this mascara!
I picked this colour on a whim while getting my nails done Saturday. I love this colour. It's a YNBB shade, but it is so much more. There's a shimmer to my nails that I can't stop staring at. It's a great shade for summer and will look awesome with a tan. I think I will have to buy myself a bottle.
The kiss of death for any mascara on me is whether it holds a curl and this did not. I wanted to try the turbo, but couldn't find it so I bought the regular Volume Express. Blah! It lasts all day, creates somewhat thicker lashes, but there is no curl. So, this is a definite no-repurchase.
It's my favourite shampoo to remove product build-up from my hair. I use it once a week, usually on Sunday, and I have good hair days following. It smells clean and I find it pretty gentle on my hair.It's a staple in my shampoo collection.
Conditioner -Graham Webb - Silk Protein Leave in Conditioner

I've been using this for more than one week and so far so good. My hair isn't super-soft and that's quite okay because when it gets too soft it won't hold my style. I have very thick, coarse hair that I blow dry and flatiron daily by the way. Now, I've been using it on my daughter's hair as well. She has very curly hair and combing it in the morning can be a nightmare. I spritz her hair with water and then work about a quarter-size amount of the conditiner through her hair and combing it out is so much easier. Her curls fall nicely, her hair is soft and frizzies are under control. I should mention DD is only 2!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Le Grand Curl Waterproof [DISCONTINUED]

I used to use this mascara for years and loved it. Then one day I noticed my eyelashes were breaking. I could see all the different lengths when applying my mascara. I decided to stop using Le Grande Curl, tried something different (Maybelline's F&S) and noticed a few months later my eyelashes had all grown back. While Le Grande Curl Waterproof has good points: it holds a curl very well, does not run or smear, and lasts a long time, I think it was too drying on my lashes, hence the breakage. Oh well.
I can't believe I haven't reviewed this polish until now. I absolutely love it. It is my favourite YNBB polish. It makes my nails look clean and oh-so healthy. I think this sheer pink would make anyone's nails - long or short - look awesome. Not crazy about the price tag, but for the quality - the shine, the way it lasts - I think it is worth it.
What all the hooplala about this mascara is remains a mystery to me. It doesn't hold a curl, it smears and it is bloody expensive. And I was so excited to have it. I did go back to the BeneFit counter and ask what exactly the mascara is supposed to do and was told make thick, bold false-looking eyelashes. Well, maybe it does this for someone else, but not me. Back to Maybelline's F&S and Lash Expansion.
I love everything about this gloss: the colour ( a very YLBB colour on me - pinky/brown), the smell, the taste, the way it lasts and most importantly how soft and smooth my lips feel after it wears off. A definite repurchase.
My manicurist used this on me before applying 1 coat of Coney Island Cotton Candy. I love sheer, YNBB colour, but most streak on me no matter what kind of prep work lies beneath. Not this time. My polish is smooth, even and streak-free. The Ridge Filler dries quickly, adheres to my nail well-enough that my manicure lasted longer than usual. Good stuff IMO.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Fantastic Lash [DISCONTINUED]
Tina68 2/2/2004 10:45:00 AM
It may be too early to write this review since this is the first day using Fantastic Lash. Overall, lashes not so fantastic. My curl is gone and I saw it leaving while applying this mascara. So far no smudging or smearing and the Very Black looks very black. The tube is fat and thick. Not what I'm used to, but I could get past it. My lashes feel okay - not too stiff, but aren't really thickened or showing high volume. I don't think I will repurchase this mascara. I should just stick to Maybelline's F&S. Why I deviate ... I just don't know.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Vitamin E Moisturizing Nail & Cuticle Oil
Tina68 1/23/2004 8:30:00 AM
This is a product I buy over and over. It keeps my cuticles hydrated and helps heal chapped skin on my fingers caused by dryness. My cuticles are extremely dry and I'm always on the look-out for that miracle. This is pretty close. I apply it two to three times a day and honestly it is one of the best products I've found to help me. This oil is fast-absorbing and works on my parched cuticles. It's a definite keeper.
I am a mascara whore. When I saw this at the drugstore I had to try it. It is #9 in my collection.I have to say I bought it w/o reading reviews here first. When I read the reviews I almost kicked myself. But I like this mascara. Like the others said it holds a curl extremely well (and that is very important to me). My lashes are thick, not lush like when I use F&S, but thick enough. So far everything looks good: no smearing or flaking. It'not a wet mascara and went on easy. If this keeps up I will add it to my regular rotation.
