I really wanted to like this, but it kept flaking off my skin... =(
Gels/Soaps -Trader Joe's - French Liquid Soap Orange Blossom Honey
plumeriapassion 1/21/2010 9:39:00 PM
Smells amazing, but I was disappointed that it wasn't moisturizing at all. What really peeved me though, was the pump, which shoots soap onto the counter if you aren't meticulous about dispensing it.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Mitchum Smart Solid - Papaya

I love this fragrance! It smells even better than Rose Petal! Mitchum antiperspirants don't keep me completely dry, but they work much better than other brands. I will definitely buy over and over again.
This hand soap comes in an elegant dispenser, smells awesome, is quite moisturizing, and has a short ingredient list. Has a smaller concentration of sulfates than other soaps on the market. I got it for $2.47 at WalMart.
Lotions/ Creams -Trader Joe's - A Midsummer Night's Cream-Unscented
plumeriapassion 12/26/2009 9:19:00 PM
Okay, I didn't find this that moisturizing. The reason I wouldn't buy this again is because it smells absolutely terrible!
I love this. Use it to fragrance the room, and sniff it when I'm in a bad mood. I don't burn it, and just let it sit with the lid open on a dresser. I'm going to check out the perfume next.
I love this! It's very moisturizing, fragrance-free, and doesn't break me out. I have not seen any results in my skin, but this is a great nighttime moisturizer.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle SPF 15

Not sure exactly how effective the sunscreen is, but this is a good moisturizer. Goes on creamy and without irritation. Fragrance-free, but doesn't smell horrible. Kind of pricey, so try to get it at a wholesale store.
I am disappointed that the lower strip is so short...very few teeth on the lower jaw will be whitened, if at all, giving you an unevenly colored smile. I've just began using this. Feels like you are wearing a retainer that burns your tongue. It was so distracting that all I could do was set a timer for 30 minutes while I took a nap, and intermittently sipped water. I'll update with results.
Concealers -Revlon - Age Defying Spa Concealer [DISCONTINUED]

So far I like this. It applies much more easily than the Blemish Concealer, and gives a natural look.
Concealers -Revlon - ColorStay Blemish Concealer with Soft Flex
plumeriapassion 3/7/2009 10:32:00 PM
Unfortunately, I found this hard to apply and chalky-looking over my blemishes and acne scars. I recommend the Age Defying Spa Concealer instead.
I hate the mint flavor, and am so disappointed that the original lip balm was discontinued. That said, there is no lip balm that moisturizes like Trader Joes. The oils in it glide over your lips and instantly soften the dryness. Why couldn't they leave out the spearmint?!!!
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure
plumeriapassion 12/29/2008 2:48:00 AM
I HATE the packaging...but wow is jojoba oil a miracle worker. It has tamed my skin and converted it from super oily and acne-prone to kinda dry. But hey, I'd rather slather on a rich cream, then deal with millions of pimples and scars! The oil is non-irritating and non-stinky. What else can you ask for? I apply it to my face with a cotton round, before applying moisturizer.
This concealer brush was prickly against the skin, and didn't blend concealer well at all. I would not buy again. Anyone have recommendations for a really good concealer brush?
Pressed Powders -L'Oreal - Bare Naturale Pressed Powder
plumeriapassion 11/20/2008 2:23:00 AM
The packaging sucks, as the lid tends to come unscrewed quite easily. The brush distributes the powder unevenly across your face, and the powder goes on chalky. I would not recommend this powder.
