I like the warming sensation this product gives. I don't find that it works particularly well as an exfoliating scrub. It would keep your feet smooth after a pedicure, but it can't replace a foot file. Still looking for that miracle foot scrub.
Shave Products -Mary Kay - Moisturizing Shave Cream

$8 for 6.5 oz can of shave cream is insane! It's a decent shave cream. I can't say that it's any better than drugstore brands.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Moisturizing Lotion

It's an okay lotion. I haven't noticed an improvement in my skin tone or texture. I don't like the fact that it pills on your skin.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Lip Nutrition Berry Smooth Balm

I thought this would be a good balm for exfoliating my lips due to the "berry beads". Not so much. The beads just stick to my lips and don't do anything. It looks like I have tiny food particles stuck on my lips. The moisturization is okay. I'm just using it as a night balm until it's gone.

I think it's a decent lip balm. There's nothing too special about it. It just adds a bit of shine and moisture.
Concealers -Neutrogena - 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes
Ambam032 7/22/2007 10:25:00 PM
I purchased this concealer after getting the Healthy Skin Glow Sheers foundation. I found that my usual concealer was just a bit too heavy for that product. I figured this concealer would match in consistency a bit more. It is a fairly light concealer (matches the Glow Sheers texture nicely). But I'm not really satisfied by the color match. I have the Glow Sheers foundation in "Ivory to Fair" and the Concealer in "Fair". The concealer is considerably lighter than my foundation. However the shade "Light" looks way too dark. I wish there was a better match.

I like the ease of applying this for a natural summery look. This winter I'll have to switch back to my normal foundation. I have to agree with several other reviewers about it's staying power. It seems to melt off by the end of the day.
Top/Base Coats -Orly - Orly Won't Chip- Polish Shield
Ambam032 7/19/2007 10:59:00 PM
Ehhh. I used this with the Orly Bonder for basecoat, two coats Orly nail color, and this as a topcoat. The next day the tip of one fingernail started chipping. I found the consistancy to be a bit thick. But that could be due to the fact that I bought my bottle awhile back and just tried it for the first time. I'll keep looking for a different topcoat.
Toast the Couple is a silvery beige with a hint of pink. I wanted a soft nude shade and this is a bit too metallic for me. It went on smoothly. I like the rubber grip handle on the bottle. The quality of the polish is really good for something I found CVS.
I love the OPI polishes. They have great durability and beautiful colors. This is a dark berry/pink shade. I use it as a pedicure color. It's a bit too dark for me to apply to my fingernails. I applied it as a pedicure 5 days ago and haven't had a single chip yet.
I love the shade. A light sheer rather lilacy pink. Looked great on my hands. It's too sheer to wear on my toes though. Unfortunately it doesn't wear so well. Unlike all my other OPI polishes, this one started to chip off in two days.
This bubble bath always reminds me of my childhood. This was my mother's favorite bubble bath. The scent is a soft rosey/floraly scent. It bubbles nicely and can rebubble by adding more water to the bath.
Bath Treatments -Avon - Bubble Bath Cherry Blossom

I love Avon bubble baths. Cherry Blossom has a soft floral scent. The bubbles last quite awhile. It's one of the few bubble baths I've found that can rebubble by adding more water to the bath.
This is a nice thick foot cream. The scent of peppermint isn't too strong. I feel it is a little greasy for use during the day so I use it as an overnight foot cream. I wake up with such soft feet.
Lipstick -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Sheer SPF 20 in Fresh Rose
Ambam032 7/16/2007 10:21:00 PM
This is a rather sheer lipstick. It's almost a solid lipgloss just goes on a bit more opaque. I would describe the color as a rich rosy pink just as the name implies. Due to the glossy texture the wearability isn't quite as you would expect from a regular lipstick. I like the thin chrome tube. It looks more expensive than most drugstore lipsticks.
