Masks -Burt's Bees - Green Goddess Herbal Spa Clay Mask [DISCONTINUED]
wendymae 1/8/2003 5:37:00 PM
Ok, let me say it is a huge pain to mix this stuff and i always put too much or too little. but i really like the mask. the drying properties are good for me because i have combination, acne prone skin. i like the minty smell; its very refreshing. and i use this mask particularly during pms, to dry up the oilyness and clear a breakout.
This is my perfect shade for lipstick. A browny pink, it's a total match to my natural color. The only thing that bothers me is that I have to re-apply too often. It doesn't seem to last as long as my other MAC lipsticks. But it goes on smooth every time. I will re-buy this.
Love this! It's a deep, smooth green with a bit of sparkle. I used it for the first time today as a liner over my top lashes and my eyes look great. I paired it with MAC haux. I would recommend this for anyone with hazel eyes. It's gorgeous!
Moisturizers -MAC - Studio Moisture Cream (Moisture Feed/Skin)

I'm in love with this stuff. I used it for the first time at a MAC counter during a makeover. It's thick, but it makes my concealer and foundation look so much better. I'm going to buy this as soon as my sample runs out, and I'll most likely keep buying it after that.
I like the way this smooths out my lips, makes them feel softer. I put it on before lipstick and at night before bed. It smells good and is very moisturizing. It's the priciest lip balm I've ever used ($9) but I'd probably buy it again.
Lip Gloss -TheBalm - Plump Your Pucker lip plumper

First of all, I didn't buy this. I got it in a swap. That said, I have to say I really don't *get* this stuff. It hasn't made my lips look any fuller, even with lipcolor. If anything, it dried out my lips. I like the pepperminty smell, but I think I'll end up throwing this out.
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Oatmeal N' Honey Natural Facial Scrub

I'm glad I decided to buy this! My skin is smoother, brighter and feels cleaner. Sometimes I don't even need a moisturizer afterward. The packaging is perfect and so is the price (about $3). I'm going to buy this again and again, and save some money. I prefer this over the $30 face scrub that I had been using!
Lotions/ Creams -Simplyscents - Gingerbread body balm

I got a sample of this from Mary at Simplyscents and now I wish that I had purchased a full-size bottle. It is fabulous! Smells just like fresh-out-of-the-oven gingerbread cookies. Not sure if I will buy this again, though, only because the oils in this sometimes irritate my sensitive skin.
These do absolutely nothing for me. I've tried 'em a bunch of times because I really want them to work. But they don't, and that's the bottom line.
I got a small bottle of this eye makeup remover from Origins free in the mail. It takes off my thick mascara with one swipe. Has no odor, and doesn't leave my eyelids slick. I really like it and will probably buy it when my bottle runs out.
Skincare - Body -Simplyscents - Love Spell body lotion
wendymae 8/18/2002 3:57:00 PM
While I love Simplyscents lotions for their textures and their variety, I am not at all crazy about this scent. It smells like berries in the bottle. But on my body, it's scent was an exact licorice. After about 1/2 an hour, I couldn't stand the Good N' Plenty odor anymore and took a shower to put on another scent.
It smelled too chemicaly to me. I tried it once, and swapped it.
Skincare - Face -Mario Badescu - Control Moisturizer for Oily Skin
wendymae 7/15/2002 7:20:00 PM
I like this. I wear it at night and my skin feels very smooth when I wake up. I have combo skin and this doesn't make me oily at all. It also takes out the redness/blotchiness for me.
Scrubs -Mario Badescu - Almond & Honey Non-abrasive facial scrub
wendymae 7/9/2002 8:09:00 AM
I adore this stuff. It's thick and creamy and I love the little almond chunks in it. I have purchased this scrub several times over and I always buy a new jar before the first one is empty. I never want to be without this stuff!
This mask cleared up a breakout in one day. It is very thick and it only takes 10 minutes. I like the smell, though it has been called mediciny by other reviewers. I wil definitely use this again..and again...and again. It's good for my combo/oily skin.
