Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - My Silhouette Redefining Gel-Cream
sandyroy01 6/24/2009 6:55:00 PM
i've been using this for a few weeks and i feel that it has given me ALMOST the same results as the clarins high definition body lift for a fraction on the price. i have noticed that it leaves my skin very soft and it does look a little better. i would buy it again because of the cost. $13 is much better than $65 for the clarins product! oh and i love the scent!
eh, nothing special. i like that it has spf but thats about it. i'm not sure if it really works or if i should be noticing any difference in my eye area because i haven't. i would buy it again because it is fairly inexpensive and doesn't irritate my sensitive eyes.
Lotions/ Creams -Clarins - High Definition Body Lift

i did notice a difference when using this. i love the way it smells. my skin felt smoother and firmer and just looked better overall. i used the lotion as directed in the morning and evening and ran out of the bottle in about 3 weeks! i'm not tall and i don't have long legs so i felt that running out in 3 weeks was ridiculous. and for the price, i can't afford to buy a new bottle every 3 weeks. it does work and is a quick fix so if you're going on a vacation, this is a great product to use religiously a month in advance.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Apricots and Cream 3-in-1

one of my favorites! i loved this scent, not at all plastic-y. it is perfect for the summer. it is high foaming, like it says, and i didn't feel any sort of residue on my skin after. i would repurchase but i was told at nordstrom that it was seasonal :(
Love this color. It's not a sheer pink but a very, very pale neutral pink. It doesn't go on streaky, which is a plus. It did take 3 coats though to get it how I wanted it to look. It also last a long time.
Styling Products -Frederic Fekkai - Marine Summer Hair Beach Waves
sandyroy01 5/22/2009 2:46:00 AM
i love the look of beachy waves. with semi-wavy hair, i'm always looking for something new to try. this stuff says to apply it to damp or dry hair, which i did. it did nothing to my hair. aside from it not working, i could not get past the smell. i am never very sensitive to the smell of products, but this is the first one that i will be returning because of the smell.
I have purchased 2 jars of the regular Fat Girl Slim because I did see some firming results. I received this as a sample and I hate the smell. Not sure how the PM measures up against the regular, but because of the gross lavendar smell I wouldn't buy a full size jar. Also, this doesn't tingle like the regular Fat Girl Slim.
this is a great peachy nude. my lips do have a bit of a pink pigmentation and this gloss compliments that perfectly. i apply it with a brush and the color can be intensified depending on how you apply it. i hate glosses that come in pots so that was the only drawback. other than that, great shade and great gloss formula.
this brush is pricey, but i love it. i love all things nars and this is no exception. i use this to plend my face powder and to apply bronzer. i didn't find that the bristles were rough at all.
As far as drugstore self tanners, this one has worked best for me! I HATE the smell of Jergen's and the Vaseline lotion doesn't have that overly disgusting tanning lotion smell. I've found that this has been discontinued or they are no longer selling this at my local stores. I even found it on cleanance at Ulta.
i love this shade! it is the perfect natural color that compliments my skin tone. i have purchased my own bottle to take in when i get a manicure because i love it that much. i've tried many essie natural colors, but this is by far my favorite.
Skincare - Body -Bliss Labs - Ingrown Hair Eliminating Pads

ouch! this things sting. i had to return them to sephora because they were worse than the actual ingrown hair itself. i might as well have poured rubbing alcohol on the very sensitive area. will not repurchase again.
i wasn't expecting a miracle with this. i was mostly curious. as far as cellulite, this won't get rid of it and i'm not sure if it really reduces the appearance of it. i think it made the skin on my thighs feel tighter. i followed the directions and used this in the am and pm. for as much as i used it, i was expecting to see more of a difference. i am curious to see how the new pm formula is different. just an ok product.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15
sandyroy01 3/4/2009 12:15:00 AM
i'm torn on this. i realy love the fresh smell and how it looks and feels on my lips but i just can't get past the steep price tag! for as much as i use lip balm during the day, i'm not sure if i can justify spending this much every month. i also wasn't a fan of the tube it came in. i don't like the metal or the screw top.
so far i really like this bronzer. others i have tried had made me look orange or too glittery. i was a little nervous about this one because it looked glittery. however, once i had it on, it was not glittery at all. it gives me a true healthy glow. i love nars, and was not disappointed by this product!
