this did not do much for me. I was looking for an oil control product and redness reducer. this did not do either for me. It also looks like chalk if too much is applied.
pretty blush color. The pot lasts a while and goes on very smooth. Might repurchase
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Citrus Basil lotion

I have been using this soap and shampoo/conditioner for a month. I get it free in our hotel. I would not purchases this from B&BW because there are far better choices. I prefer Vanilla Sugar or Sweet Pea. This citrus basil scent is light and cleann and can be worn by both male and female.
This smells so sexy on my man. We just bought this at Macys and I cant stop smelling him. I do believe that this will smell good on a man of olive or darker copmplexion. My boyfriend is Persian, therefore this suits him rather well. Will buy again
I love this store and have just discovered it after a trip to san francisco. I bought a lot of tops and spent very little money. I was pleasantly pleased to find that there will be n opening in Los Angeles. This store sure beats forever 21
This is my favorite lipgloss. It works really well on my highly pigmented lips. High shine and not too sticky. I have tried many brands and always come back to this one. Its a pity really because its so expensive. Oh well, its worth it to me.
I bought this in place of my Chanel Glaze lipgloss. I am stuck in Redding , CA until Nov and Chanel isnt sold here. I have this in Ample Pink color. It looks mauvey in the tube, light pink on the lips. There is a coolong effect at first which fades quickly. There is great staying power and not too sticky. I think that the tube is smaller and I get more Chanel for the buck. I wont repurchase solely on this fact. Im sure other colors are good. Nice smell.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Cuticle Massage Cream with Apricot Extract

Crap, plain and simple. I opened the container and saw the flouresent orange wax and thought maybe I got a bum tub. The other reviewers describe the same consistency. I dont think it softens at all. Waste of $. I have to dig my nail into the tub to get some out to apply to my cuticles and even then, it doesnt do much.
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Total Moisture Dry Skin Lotion - Discontinued
jareed 7/27/2006 5:21:00 PM
Not a heavy lotion, great if you do not have very dry skin. Unfortunately, I do some places and this does not cut it. I would buy it for a general summer lotion because it is light weight and not greasy. I wanted this to work on my dry feet and that is why I bought it. Oh well, not a loss at $3. Will probably buy again
I have reviewed this product before and I am still mixed. I have decided to try other things in conjuction with this and report my results. I did not like this product upon initial use. I felt it just sat on my skin when applied dry and streaked when applied wet. I have combo skin and am 31 yrs old. I have found that if used over olay lotion that it works best. It still sits on my skin at first but, after one hour it sinks in and looks natural. I have used many other foundations since my last review (Stila, LM, and makeupforever) and all went back to Sephora!! This isnt a HG but, I can't find better. Don't bother to use it wet. It doesn't work no how!!
Moisturizers -Olay - Total Effects Night Firming Cream
jareed 7/21/2006 2:46:00 AM
great product and average price. I have been using this for about a week and am pleased. I think my little lines are less apparant. I have noticed that I am a lot less oily in the day and I have been applying this cream night as well as under my make up in the day. It seems really weird that a cream for night could also be for oil control. It makes me wonder how much moisture I am really getting. I am pleased, so I am not going to question a good thing:)
Liquid -Laura Mercier - Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation
jareed 6/22/2006 5:56:00 PM
worst foundation ever!!! This doesn't cover even minor imperfections. I did apply it with a wet sponge, dry sponge, fingers...nothing worked for me. It also did nothing to control my oil. I used this with Benefit pressed powder. It was sliding off my face and emphasized a line in my forehead. VERY,VERY DISAPPOINTING. Back to Sephora it will go. This time I am considering trying Makeupforever. Wish me luck:)
This is my HG. I have fine curly hair and this is the best product ever. If anyone has thin or fine hair and wants it to appear fuller, this is for you! I will admit that it may not feel the best to the touch, but looks are more important to me. This tames my flyaways and sculptes my curls. It says its for straight hair, but my hair gets more curly than usual when I scruch and blowdry. I prefer to put it on to very wet hair and then scrunch. after much use, I like to wash with clarifying shampoo and good conditioner. I pay $11 at local drug store. I havent tried rusk shampoos or conditioners, but will soon
Tools -Sally Hansen - 5 Minute FRENCH Manicure Pen Kit
jareed 5/13/2006 11:34:00 PM
I had a hard time with this product. I thought the pen would somehow make my frenchie look more professional, not even close. the pen has weird fibers and is stiff, so making a precise line is impossible. I tried it with the guides also and no difference. the polish in the pen is the same consistency as white out. I immediately took it off and used free hand and a cheap white polish and voile, beautiful manicure. I really was disappointed, dont waste your 10 dollars
Cheap and worth every penny. I just tried this mask lastnight. I broke down and bought it after the raving reviews. I usually buy more high end products, but I was pleasantly pleased with this inexpensive one. I first saw it at my local beauty supply store for 7.99, I then purchased it at Rite aid for 3.99. I love a bargain! It tightened my pores and left my skin soft. It does tingle a bit, but it wont deter me from using it again. Its a great find at any price in my IMO.
