I used Vaseline for years as a lip balm, cuticle ointment, eyebrow groomer, you name it. But recently the petroleum smell of it began to bother me and I switched to unrefined shea butter. It's almost as cheap, it smells good (to me, anyway) and it's a natural product. My favorite use for it is to slather it on my heels and then cover with socks..baby smooth feet in the morning! I buy the unrefined, fair traded brands from West Africa. It's a little tricky to use in the beginning as the texture is different, but I soften it in the microwave and that helps with application.
Bronzers -Sephora - Sephora All Over Skin S40 Bronze

This is a relatively inexpensive bronzer, and it works pretty well on my fair skin, but it requires a VERY light touch, or it looks orange. I wish it had a little less shimmer too, but overall it's a good buy. It stays on well, too.
I have been taking 3-6-9 fish oil capsules for a couple of years now, partially for my osteoarthritis, but have noticed a positive difference in my hair and nails and skin, nice bonus!
I love this perfume, and it smells great on me, very warm and brown-sugary :) I get lots of comments on it ; women ask what I'm wearing, and male co workers just tell me I smell great!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

I think this must be a good moisturizer for normal skin, but I find it not moisturizing enough for my very dry skin, and my daughter says it breaks her out (she has combination skin) so we both use it as a hand lotion instead! (large bottle someone gave me as a gift) I won't be buying it again.
