I love this perfume! The bottle is cute, it purrs! I wouldn't say that it is a "light" fragrance, but it's definitely not overwhelming. I have been trying to find a fragrance that I can stick to, and I think this may be the one.
I hate liquid, mousse, and cream to powder foundations and like powder better. I was pretty skeptical when I heard about Bare Minerals. So I decided to try L'Oreal's Bare Naturale. I liked the coverage, but it looked so cakey. My sister in law uses Bare Minerals, so when I was visiting for a while, I gave it a try and bought the Medium kit. At first I didn't like it because it didn't seem to cover my blemishes. After a while I got the hang of it by getting over the fact that you have to put a little effort and technique into your application. Now I really like this foundation. I find that at first it looks a little chalky if my face is really dried out from cleansing too much. But my face is super oily so it ends up ok. I love the coverage on my blemishes, it doesn't cake and my pimples disappear! It really doesn't feel like makeup, so I like that. I might switch to something else if I find something more amazing, but for now I am satisfied with my Bare Minerals.
Eye Makeup Remover -Mary Kay - Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover

I love this eye makeup remover! When I wear a lot of eye makeup I have to use two cotton balls per eye, but I never ever have to tug or rub hard no matter how much I use. It just sweeps the makeup right off. I like that the hole on top doesn't allow me to squeeze out too much product, so that it lasts longer. Although one time while traveling, I didn't tighten the cap all the way and it did spill a little! I was sad because product had been wasted. :( I will probably never buy another eye makeup remover, and I have tried quite a few others at the drugstore. Nothing comes close to this for me!
This cleanser works really well for me. My skin feels so clean and soft after using it. I don't have any residue on my face afterwards, and it doesn't dry it out. It doesn't seem to have a huge effect on my acne though, maybe just clearing it up a little from dirt and whatever else accumulates on my face daily that would worsen it or cause small pimples. It lasts a long time because I find that half a pump is all I need each time I use it. Overall it is a great cleanser, just not the best acne product. I would definitely buy again.
Scrubs -Biore - Pore Perfect Pore Unclogging Scrub

I have mixed feelings about this product. I was expecting it to be a scrub, since it says so on the package. Instead, I find it to be more of a cleanser. The beads don't really do anything, and I used it only in the shower because they ended up sticking to my hair and neck and I was able to rinse it off better that way. I would rather use the cleansers and scrubs I already have, so I wouldn't buy this again. The best thing about this product is that there is so much in the full size (5 oz) tube. So for someone for whom this product works well, it will last them forever. Overall it's not a bad product, it just isn't the best scrub or cleanser out there for me.
