I really love this polish. It is much darker than I would normally go..but even as a pale gal I can really pull it off! I get lots of compliments when I wear this too. Many from unexpected people! This is one of my favorites. Now that it is getting warmer, I doubt it will be out on my fingers for awhile..but during the winter and fall months this is perfect.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Simply Basic Pure Acetone Polish Remover
Flitter 3/20/2007 3:52:00 PM
GREAT STUFF!! This is personally my favorite nail polish remover. First off, it is dirt cheap. It comes in a great bottle that is pratically spill proof! This is so so easy to use! They come in a variety of fragrances that really do mask that nail polish remover smell. And to top it all off-it works!! Gets off even the hardest to remove polish (glitters, etc.) with ease. Love.
This is good stuff. It really works!! It tones and evens out my skin very well. It does not dry out my skin at all, and believe or not I love the smell! It really does peel off!! The thicker you put it on the easier it is to peel off. It really freaks out my husband because he says it looks like my skin is peeling off! lol. Overall though, I am very pleased with this mask, and it is very resonably priced. Will repurchase this again for sure!
Scrubs -Clinique - Sparkle Skin Body Exfoliating *Cream*
Flitter 3/17/2007 5:25:00 PM
Overall I really like this scrub. It is nice to use, and it delivers what it promises. It exfoliates well without being too harsh the skin. The downside to me is I HATE the smell. Yuck. I realize Clinique does not like to use heavily scented products, but the smell is kind of a turn off for me. There are other scrubs out there that I like using a bit more. If you are just looking for a basic body exfoliator though, this is a nice choice.
Mmmmmmm....I can't get enough of this smell! This scrub is a treat to use. Does it justify the 30 dollar price tag? Not really. Get this only as an occasional splurge or only if you can buy a body scrub for this much without flinching..otherwise, there is cheaper and just as good out there for your money.
Gels/Soaps -Caress - Caress Glowing Touch Body Wash

I love this stuff! I use it almost everyday. It has a very nice addictive smell. Comes in a huge bottle too, a lot of value for the money. Will repurchase.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush Gloss -all
Flitter 2/27/2007 7:14:00 AM
I really love these! A HUGE improvement I think over the older line (sweet talk) these are much much better. They manage to last for a decent amount of time without being super sticky. They go on thick, not watery at all, and they come in a HUGE variety of colors and flavors. If you are looking for a gloss, you can pretty much find whatever you want. My personal favorite way to wear these is over lipstick. I think it gives a really fun look, and these are very enjoyable to wear. :)
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Beauty Rush lip gloss - I want candy
Flitter 2/27/2007 7:08:00 AM
I love this!! I love the smell and the taste and it is perfect and fun to pair over lipstick. Or even wear all on your own if you wanted. A little goes a long way so I can see this lasing for a long time. I have purchased several of the "beauty rush" lipglosses, and am very much pleased with all of them!
Moisturizers -Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Moisture Gel
Flitter 2/27/2007 6:29:00 AM
This stuff is perfection for me. I have oily, break out prone skin, which still needs moisture, esp. in winter. What a pain right? Well yes! But it is much easier to handle with this stuff. It gives me just what I need, with no greasy or break out side effects. I love it and have actually already repurchased several times!
Cleansers -Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Oil-Reducing Cleanser
Flitter 2/27/2007 6:27:00 AM
I love this stuff!! It took me forever to finally try Paula's Choice, but I am so glad I did. It makes me realize just how harsh the other stuff I was using beforehand was on my skin. This gets the job done, and my skin looks and feels so much better afterwards! It gives it a nice healthy glow that I love :) A+! I will def buy again as much as a can. It is a little more expensive than my usual face wash, but to me it is worth the price. And you can buy in a pretty large bottle and it lasts a very long time as well.
Lotions/ Creams -Caress - In-Shower Lotion Glowing Touch
Flitter 2/27/2007 6:11:00 AM
I love love love this stuff!! I will start off by saying that this stuff does moisturize, but it is not a very heavy cream--so if your skin is pretty dry to start with it may not do the job alone. That being said, this stuff is SO handy to me when I am in the shower or the bath, and I need something to put on my legs after I shave. It is so much easier than dealing with the uncomfortable ness of the "after shower cold lotion time" that we all dread. I much prefer putting this lotion on while sitting in a warm bath--esp. in wintertime. :) I LOVE the smell, but it is rather strong, so if someone is not a fan it may be bothersome to them-however I think it is quite nice. This is one of my favorite new products to come out in quite awhile.
Eye Shadow -L'Oreal - HIP Pure Pigment Shadow Stick
Flitter 2/27/2007 6:04:00 AM
Ick! I am usually a lover of all things L'Oreal, but I was just so dissapointed in these. Every single thing about them was misleading. From the packaging in the store, to the "high intensity pigment" of it that was advertised. If you just use these dry, they are very hard to put on, much much harder than I would ever want to do in the eye area. And if you do manage to get some color out of them they are so wimpy. Plus they are just these crappy little sticks, that like some others said down below--just totally fall apart on you when you try to do anything to them. Overall, I still love most of L'Oreal's stuff. But I will NOT be buying these again.
Lotions/ Creams -Clinique - Deep Comfort Body Butter
Flitter 10/13/2006 10:09:00 PM
With my line of work, I wash my hands a million times a day..and with the weather changing like it is, this takes a serious toll on my skin. This stuff is the BEST I have tried. I love it. It really does repair my skin and provide moisture like no other. If you need a strong moisturizer, I highly recommend this. I also love the tub it comes in, and the scent as well. Another thing I liked about it is it really seemed to last all day, even with my frequent handwashings. I will buy again for sure.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Amazing Grace Bath, Shampoo & Shower Gel
Flitter 9/29/2006 11:20:00 PM
This is my absolute FAVE of all the philosophy scents!! I just can't get enough of it. I have not used this as a shampoo, but I just adore using this as a bath and shower gel. I have already repurchased on several occasions and will most definitely do so again! I just LOVE Amazing Grace!!! :)

Wonderful Amazing Grace scent in a bubble bath. What could be better? The bubbles last an "amazingly" long time and the packaging is so pretty. Love love love!
