Mascara -Max Factor - Lash Perfection Volume Couture [DISCONTINUED]

I was so sad about this mascara not working for me after reading that Consumer Reports said it was a top pick and the ratings here were very good. My eyes began to burn shortly after applying and I had a lot of flaking. I only put it on my top lashes. I also had some clumping upon applying. Darn...will there never be a perfect mascara for me?
I liked this as a lip balm...I LOVE it as an eye treatment. I use it at night and during the day if I'm not using eye shadow. When it warms up it's creamy and very softening around the eye. I use around the entire eye, lids too.
I use this 2x a week after I use the Honey Oatmeal Scrub Really makes my skin soft and very clean Only thing I don't like....it stained my white wash cloths
Gels/Soaps -Johnson & Johnson - Vanilla Oatmeal Baby Bath

I have very sensitive skin when it comes to body washes. Most dry me out. My biggest problem has been finding a wash I can use on my most private and sensitive areas, yes...that's the place I'm talking about. Anyway....I have tried everything from plain Ivory Soap (that my husband swears by..he uses nothing else) to products made just for the feminine places. The J&J Vanilla Oatmeal wash is the only product I have ever used that cleanses well doesn't irritate or dry me out, and it smells great.
Lip Treatments -SoftLips - Pure Pomegranate Organic Lip Conditioner

this is an OK lip balm....nothing HG about it though. It's light and not going to cure chapped lips, but nice to keep in your purse for a touch up during the day if your not wearing lipstick. Light frag, no real taste and clear on lips.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Borax laundry powder

I love Borax too. I stopped using bleach and fabric softener and replaced them with Borax. I use a fragrance and dye free liquid detergent from Costco. I use about 1/2 cup Borax with each load. My clothes are clean and soft. I haven't tried Borax for anything else, but I'm going to do some research and see what other uses I can find for this natural wonder.
Makeup Brushes -Ecotools - Bamboo Foundation Brush

This is just as good at my PX brush....I actually like it more because the handle is shorter.....I like it for my JI Absence Primer too.....I could never get it to go on right until I used this brush
soft brush, light weight case, good price.....perfect alternative to the TF retractable kabuki
My mom gave me this as a gift. I like all the color choices. Fun to play with. Mine came in the pink two layer box, which I'm going to use for jewelry. The only thing I don't like is I tried to remove the pieces and the eye shadows and blushes crumbled. I wanted to put them in smaller cases. But, as a gift it's great or as a way to try out a the Ulta line it's great too.
Fragrance -Unlisted Brand - Geoffrey Beene - Grey Flannel

Found this at Longs (soon to be CVS) for $8.00. What a great fall frag.....soft and spicy at the same time...very different and my first venture in to a male frag...I feel so liberated
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Mountain Ocean - Skin Trip Coconut Lotion
jmarie 8/2/2008 12:18:00 PM
I've been using this all summer for the moisturizing and scent. It goes nicely with my Secert Flawless Tropical. It has an almost spicy coconut scent that develops with the warming of your body. It's perfect for summer because it's light, but it has a lasting moisturizing effect.
Best RED lipstick I have found to date....this is a true, deep red....I don't know why it's called Blackberry.....I see no berry at all....better then any MAC red I've tried
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - High Linoleic Safflower Oil

I got a hugh bottle at Costco...transfered to a smaller bottle...added Castor Oil and Sandalwood EO...makes a great facial cleanser....I love putting a warm cloth over my face with this oil mix on...the Sandalwood frag is fantastic
Cleansers -Ponds - Dramatic Results Age Defying Cleansing Towelettes

I like to use these after using Albolene to remove make up and sun screen. They take off the Albolene film and leave behind a AHA treatment. They're big enough to use over face, chest, arms and legs.
so, it starts out as a copy of Dior Addict...then turns sweet. I like Dior Addict better because it stays true to it's notes through and through
