As stated in my review of the companion cleanser the winning combination for me is Babor Mild Cleanser followed by Babor Rose Toning Lotion. Use the Cleanser and wipe off with the Rose Toning Lotion. No water necessary. Terrific for sensitive skin types or those with dry skin. I buy this from my aesthetician when funds are available. There is nothing better, IMHO.
This cleanser is worth every penny. I bought it from my aesthetician and it helps my skin so much. Works for Sensitive and Dry skin. I can't always afford to buy it but when I can, I do. My skin guru says water is the enemy of good skin. Keep your face out of the shower head ladies. She prescribes this with the Rose Toner. Use the cleanser and wipe off the cleanser with the Toner. It keeps your skin soft and oils flowing out of it to keep from clogging your pores. Be warned it's pricey.

I love The Body Shop Body Butters. I have mixed feelings on the scent on this one. It is a weee bit strong. I don't mind it but I could see where others might. I'm not sure how well it would go with other perfumes or sprays, etc. The butter side of it is terrific just like all the others in this line.

Mmmmmm, I love using this right when getting out of the shower. Goes on smoothly and absorbs quickly. I love the scent. I can't get enough of it. It's a tiny bit greasy just for a short time. It leaves my knees and elbows looking terrific. I love it. I buy this one over and over again.
Treatments (Eye) -Lancome - Renergie Microlift Eye R.A.R.E.

I've been using Lancome Renergie Eye products for the better part of 10 years. They are thick and heavy and do the job. I wear them at night. I see a comment that the new version can be worn during the day. If you're young and you want to keep the under eye wrinkles to a minimum start with this and you won't be sorry. As for getting rid of wrinkles I still don't and never will believe any product can do that. It's called age and gravity baby! Regardless Lancome Renergie Eye is a winner time and again no matter how they change or repackage it.
Lipstick -Garden Botanika - Volumizing Lipstick Sweet Joe

This a close second in color and application to Babe from Bloom. I like the Bloom lipstick a week bit better. It has a better glide for me. The lipsticks from Garden Botanika are beautiful. I am torn between 3 or 4 lippies for this one because the product is smaller than lipsticks normally are yet this is the same price. I highly reccommend this one for staying power and moisture.
New favorite all time lip gloss for me!!!. It is so moist and glides right on. I wanted a Red lipstick without being too pink or orangey and this is it. Right on to Bloom for getting this shade just right!
Won't buy again, no grey coverage. Shade was so-so and left my hair a little dull. I have brunette hair with lots of grey. This one is not for me. I left it on 25 minutes.
Definitely a lot promised but not too much delivered. I saw none of what was promised on tv. A dud for me!
Moisturizers -Serious Skin Care - Olive Oil moisturizer

A terrific product at a terrific price. This moisturizer is perfect for the winter. Definitely too heavy for the summer. I use it at night and it's just perfect when my skin is begining to become dry I use this and then switch back to a lighter moisturizer. Not sure what all the complaints are on the fragrance. I didn't notice it one way or another.

Terrific product. I agree with all the other reviewers not enough product - I don't even have that much, lol and 25 minutes is the minimum.
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner

It doesn't work with the shampoo at all on my daughter's hair. I've tried leaving it on 5 minutes. It still doesn't get the tangles out. Not buying again. If it weren't so inexpensive I might give it 2 lips. Perhaps it works on shorter hair.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo
MomColors 4/19/2008 10:52:00 PM
This shampoo is good for a drugstore cheapy. I use it on my daughter's long straight hair. The smell is wonderful. It's not too drying but it's not all that hydrating either. But with the price what do you expect? It is FAR better than the matching conditioner. I will buy it again and in fact, just did today.
Cleansers -Lumene - Radiant Touch Moisturizing Cream Cleanser
MomColors 4/19/2008 10:44:00 PM
I like this much better than the toner in this product line. I wouldn't buy it again just because I have other cleansers I like better. This is a nice cleanser and is not drying to the over 40 crowd. It's just so-so IMHO for the price.
Junk. I can't believe I bought into the hype of this. This blush is a $10 blush at best. You get a ton of product. But you have to buy as part of a pricey kit and it's not worth it just for the blush.
