Lip Treatments -Jack Black - Intense Therapy Lip Balm spf 25
Nikki08 10/3/2010 4:57:00 PM
I love this stuff! I found it at my Sephora and honestly I thought the tube was cute so I got it! Even my husband likes it. He told me to go back and get him his own. My only beef with it is that it was like $7. Not really bad but for lip balm? Idk, maybe I'm used to my $1 softlips stuff ;) But I'm sold, I'll be repurchasing!
I love this stuff! I never thought I'd like MK products but I'm sold! Goes on well and last all day.
Bronzers -E.L.F. - Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder -- Sunkissed
Nikki08 5/20/2010 9:39:00 AM
What can I say...it's a dollar. For a cheap shimmery "bronzer-ish" look it works. I wouldn't really call this a bronzer. It did give my face a healthy glow and as the name implies I did look sunkissed. Wears off after a few hours but it does look pretty while it lasts. I'll repurchase, for this summer it will be perfect.
Fragrances -Soap and Glory - Girligo Body Moisturizing Mist

I like a lot of their products, but this one just didn't do it for me. I really have wanted to find a good spray lotion so I was trying to be very optimistic. I don't really have dry skin but this just didn't moisturize very well and it felt kinda sticky. I gave it to my step daughter and she loves it.
Lotions/ Creams -Soap and Glory - Righteous Body Butter Lite
Nikki08 5/19/2010 10:12:00 AM
First of all, I have a love affair with lotions, lol. Tried a million of them. I'm pretty picky too, but this passed the test. I like the consistency and it soaked in well, too. Not sticky at all. Moisturized well. I loved the smell. It smells familiar somehow but not sure from where. Packaging was cute...I'm a sucker for cute packages, lol. I wish they sold bigger bottles, though, I went through this one pretty quick. Will repurchase.
Lip Treatments -Soap and Glory - Sexy Motherpucker Lip Gloss
Nikki08 5/19/2010 9:47:00 AM
I thought this was a cute and cheeky lip gloss. I stumbled upon it at Target and picked it up not really convinced it would do anything. It goes on well and smells good. I love the color and it did plump up my lips. The only draw back for me was the tingly/vibrating sensation. I've used lip plumpers before but this one can be really irritating. Still, I was a satisfied customer. I just used up the last of it, which btw it lasted FORVER, so I will be getting more soon :)
Treatments (Eye) -Lancome - Primordiale Eye Skin Recharge
Nikki08 5/6/2010 10:52:00 AM
I love this stuff!! Works beautifully. Wonderful at moisturizing, doesn't burn or irritate my skin. It helped plump up any tiny lines and even helped with under eye darkness. My only problem with this is that it is so expensive. I ran out of it and started using Origins products, now seeing the difference in quality I'm really considering forking over the money so I can use this again!
I use this when I have puffy eyes from allergies or being up too late. Honestly I'm not that impressed. It does help some with puffiness but it kinda burns when I put it on. And it seems like it dries my eyes out. It's ok for occasional use I guess, but I won't be repurchasing.
I am a big Origins fan and use a lot of their products. So I was really excited to try this. I don't really have any lines under my eyes but I do have under eye darkness. This does have a little shimmer in it that I like but other than that it fails in every other area. I don't find it very moisturizing, it's goopy, and even burns a little when I first put it on. I've been using it for over a month and haven't seen any lasting effects either. I will be trying to exchange it for their Eye Doctor. Which isn't my favorite but not as expensive as the awesome Lancome Primodiale Eye Skin Recharge!
Tinted Moisturizer -Mary Kay - Tinted Moisturizer with Sunscreen SPF 20
Nikki08 4/1/2010 6:55:00 PM
This is my new foundation!! With just a little concealer under my eyes this works perfectly as foundation for me. It doesn't feel heavy or oily like a lot of tinted moisturizers do. Doesn't break me out and it's super cheap. Wouldn't have been able to get away with using this as foundation until I started using their cleanser. I do put on their moisturizer underneath this. I don't think this alone would be enough to soften my skin.
Cleansers -Mary Kay - TimeWise 3-in-1 cleanser C/O
Nikki08 4/1/2010 6:47:00 PM
I love this cleanser! I was previously using Origins Checks and Balance and thought it was great...until I found this! Never realized what a film my previous cleanser left behind. I noticed an improvement in my skin within just a few days. Blemishes litterally disappeared, pores shrunk and overall my face has a pretty glow to it now. I've gotten alot of compliments since I've switched. The only little complaint I have is that it can be slightly drying. Honestly, I just go a little heavier on my moisterizer and I'm good to go!
I like this eye cream. Not love, but like. I have really bad dark circles under my eyes. Just a few tiny lines, not bad at all though. I have been using this for about a month now. I have noticed that it seems to have brightened the dark circles a bit. Smoothes out my skin and plumps it w/o being too greasy. I'll probably repurchase this. I do feel like there has to be something better out there, but until I find it I'll be using this.
Treatments (Eye) -Origins - High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-enriched eye cream
Nikki08 6/16/2008 10:14:00 PM
I really wanted to love this. I have been on the search for a good eye cream. I was pretty impressed with all the ingredients they talk about being in it. But I have to say it did absolutely NOTHING! I am so glad I got a sample before purchasing. It moisturized, quite heavily (greasy), but did nothing about dark circles, puffiness, or lines. I might as well have been using crisco!
This is a pretty good mask. I do like the warming effect and it does seem to clean out my pores. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, so that is a plus. I don't know if I would repurchase though. I thought it did a decent job, but I like variety. And I think there has to be a better mask out there.
I wasn't too impressed with this. In fact I almost took it back. I probably would have but getting to the store with 4 kids is such a hassle! It doesn't do any damage such as breakouts or drying out, but doesn't do much good either. It seems to do only a fair job at exfoliating, and it kinda leaves a film on my skin. If I don't have too much build up it works ok. But not worth the $20 I paid for it. I wouldn't repurchase for sure.
