Moisturizers -Biotherm - Aquasource 24 h deep hydration replenishing gel
Dimanta 7/1/2012 8:17:00 PM
I got a sample of this in my European magazine and I absolutely love this gel! I like the texture (it's clear, greenish gel that smells really nice) and that it absorbs very fast. It feels really fresh and clean, there is no stickiness or oiliness, love it! Too bad I can't find it in US now, will wait when in Canada or Europe to purchase this. I know it's pricy - but I really like to use this for day, under my foundation. This gel is really good for combination or normal skin type, if your skin type is dry, you will need something richer than this.
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream

I received a sample of this in my European magazine and was sceptic at first (as I never use/don't like Maybelline products much) and didn't know what BB stands for. Anyway, I decided to give it a try and was really amazed about the results! Pros: - No weird smell - Easy to apply - Light-Medium coverage - Does not shine - Skin feels matte all day long - Price Cons: - Comes off at the end of day... * - Not great for very hot weather - I am not sure if it did or not break me out a little However, I like this foundation (or tinted moisturizer) a lot. It's cheap and easy solution for days I do not want full coverage.
I absolutely love this lipstick. This is my first VS lipstick (aside from a lipgloss) and I think its amzing. I like the color and I love that it's creamy - not too drying as other lipsticks.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Macadamia Natural Oil - Rejuvenating Shampoo

I just bought this shampoo, even though I just saw so many bad reviews. I can't tell anything bad about it - I like the smell, I like this brand (as it claims to be sulfate, paraben free), I like how it lathers (Im not sure why so many people say it didn't) and it doesn't break me out around hairline (that might happen from SLS or soy proteins). I only do not like the bottle as its not squeezable.
Cleansers -Alba Botanica - Sea Lettuce Cleansing Milk

It cleans my skin really well and I absolutely love the feeling afterwards. It was 12.99 USD - not too bad for a bottle that size. Have been using this for about 2 months now. It does not remove make up well, but I use it as a cleaser in the morning and days when I do not use foundation. This product does not break me out ever (yeey), which is amazing, will continue using this. I love the idea of it not containing any sulfates, parabens, whey or soy proteins.
I love this fragrance. I am not a fan of VS perfumes (I never had any) but this one is nice. It's really fresh, summery - not too sweet, not too fruity - fresh notes of jasmine, amber and starfruit. Sounds amazing :)
I used it for my to toe nails, I liked this color from first but after few hours I regretted my choice. I think it's older lady color, bright pinkish/red and shiny. Not my fav color at all.
Love this nail polish! It's such cool blueberry smoothie color!!! I love it one coat (light purple, little muddy as someone mentioned) but it was little uneaven, so I used another coat. With two coats the color is deeper purple, but still muddy and glossy. I was drinking a blueberry smoothie later and noticed that this nail polish is the same color as my smoothie, really fun color.
I got a sample of this unpleasant smell shampoo and I really liked it (except the smell). My hair felt really clean and healthy, it was easy to brush (I still have to use good conditioner) so I bought 8.4 fl.oz bottle for $19.95. Yeah, the price is horribly expensive, but the mini bottle was $9.95 so decided to try bigger size. Note**** Many shampoos make me break out around hairline and neck (from ingredients such as Hydrolized Wheat/Soy Protein and sometimes also SLS) but this shampoo never breaks me out. So this is one of the reasons I bought this shampoo.
This is extremely expensive shampoo, $40 for the biggest size, $14 for mini size. Anyways, I decided to get a sample and try out this "amazing" rehab shampoo. I liked the way it foams - very fast. I did not notice any much difference, except that my hair became really really soft. I do not like my hair that soft so I'm not sure I will purchase this shampoo.
Got a sample of this at Lush (sample lasts for 3 times, so usually I try shampoos before, they are really expensive at Lush!) as any Lush shampoo, the smell is horrible (not the worst of them). The color might seem scary at first (bright purple, all shower was splashed with purple foam and water) but it washes out and does not leave any stains. I loved the result a lot, my golden highlights were lighter and so very shiny, I was really impresed. However, the down sides - price, smell and it could be more moisturizing. My hair is really dry, little damaged, so I have to choose another shampoo. However, this is great shampoo for anyone who wants lighter, shiny hair.
This is my favorite fragrance. I have been using this for years, my whole family and all friends love it. I have been getting lots of compliments. I also love the bottle of this perfume. I am thinking to purchase this in the future again, but this time will try EDP, as they are very similar, only EDP should stay on longer.
Treatments -Vichy - Liftactiv Retinol HA Nuit/Night

I got a sample of this in my european magazine and decided to give it a try. I really liked the coinsistance and it's super easy to apply it. I absolutely loved the feeling of this cream, not too greasy, not too sticky, just really moisturizing. Only minus - unpleasant smell. I am not sure where to find this cream (haven't seen in US), probably will purchase online or from Europe. UPDATE: I ordered it online for $40.00. Using and loving it. Can't say it's the best night cream, but I like how light it feels.
OMG, I just got a sample of this, applied on my eye area (it felt really nice at the begining but not moisturizing at all) and then started to study ingredients. It contains: ALCOHOL DENAT that is used for washing windows, as a cleaning aid to remove ink, stains, make drinks undrinkable, and basically, in skin care it may be used to dry acne prone skin.. so why to add this ingredient to eye cream - eyes are the most delicate, sensitive area. After learning this, I'm rinsing off this cream and never using it again.
Pretty good quality, usually I hate Maybelline foundations but this one was really nice, gave me perfect coverage and I love the bottle with pump, so small and cute, easy to use. However, it was really hard to find the right shade for me, even the lightest one was little too dark and other shades were too orange. Maybe for summer shade #3 or 4 would be alright (not sure again, as they looked soo orange), I might give a 2nd try. My other concern, it feels too creamy on my face, I am used to my Revlon foundations that does not feel creamy, sticky, does not rub off. So I am not sure about it yet. Still, as I love the coverage, bottle and price ($7.85 at Walmart) I will give it a try later on.
