A nice mask, sure, but miracle? No! Let's face it, girls, if you've got big pores, you've got big pores! No matter how much money we pay, they will not shrink forever. I wanted this mask to be a miracle, but it was not. I still like to use it, though. It makes a nice mask.
Lotions/ Creams -Jaqua Girls - Buttercream Frosting Sinfully Rich Body Butter
amybean 1/23/2005 8:02:00 PM
I got this half price at Rampage several months ago... I LOVE the consistency, LOVE the smell... it lasts until I take a shower. However I put it on my face a few days ago and it made my face itch. I use this only when I am feeling especially wonderful.
I have extremely fair skin, and this product looks fluorescent pink on me! But I like fluorescent pink, so that is just fine. And the color lasts for EVER! It reminds me of those "mood lipsticks" from childhood.... no matter what color it is in the tube (green, for instance), it goes on this garish bright pink that takes days to scrub off. My rose petal blush bouquet is the same way. It is still on my lips the next morning! Only gets 4 lippies because on me it is SO unnatural!
To me this smells like old orchids. No good.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - true blue spa shea it isn't so foot cream

I have extremely dry skin on my feet, and this amazing lotion actually makes the white cracked skin look beautiful all day long! Unfortunately, I really don't like the smell. (eucalyptus?) But since my feet are so far away from my nose, I use it anyway.
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa Like Butter shea butter shower cream

This only gets 3 lippies because the scent is too weird. Is it apples or butter? Or apple butter? I wish they would have stuck to the nice frosting scent that the other True Blue products have! Other than that, it's very moisturizing. Great for shaving.

This is the best product I have ever tried from B&BW. It goes on your skin light as air & is ultra moisturizing. I wish the tub were bigger & cheaper! However, after using for awhile, i am sick of the scent. Now it turns my stomach, but the moisturizing effects are great.
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Complete Moisturizing Body Wash
amybean 12/24/2004 2:15:00 AM
I use the one for normal skin, with the pink top. Absolutely the best body wash I've ever used. It actually moisturizes my skin!!!! Most products just SAY that they will moisturize your skin, but this one really does! Also it smells fantastic. I love the stuff. Lately I have also been using it to shampoo my hair.
I bought this because it was the only true-brown (i.e., not brown-black) waterproof that I could find at Sephora. However, it still smudges like crazy, just like any drugstore mascara, and when I look in the mirror after a few hours... abracadabra! It has disappeared entirely! (though sometimes remnants are found smudged beneath my eyes...) However, I recently discovered that if I put on Clinique's lash primer underneath, it actually STAYS ON MY LASHES!!! In fact, I could barely scrub it off with cold cream! Now that's some good stuff.
Love the scent, wish it came in EDP so maybe it would last longer than an hour or so! I also purchased this in the gift set... as much as I love it, I need to keep looking for a scent that does not fall off of me in a few hours.
Blush -BeneFit Cosmetics - Cheekies [DISCONTINUED]

What awful packaging! I kept it in my purse, which I guess squeezed it in some way, because whenever I open this stuff, a whole glop comes oozing out! Enough to turn your entire leg bright pink! Otherwise I really would like this product.
Lip Gloss -Dessert Beauty - Deliciously Kissable Plumping Lip Fragrance Gloss - Juicy
amybean 12/24/2004 1:58:00 AM
I have to admit I really like some of the other Dessert flavors, although I don't like the way that they burn my lips. Juicy is the only one that I've used long-term because I got it as a sample at Sephora, like everyone else. It has a weird candy-taste, like everyone else mentioned. I really like several of the other flavors, the caramelly favor and the chocolatey one also. But I am not about to spend $21 a tube on such a cheapie little tube! Would much rather spend that kind of money on a nice container, since really, we are paying mostly for nice containers when we buy this pricey stuff. Besides, as I mentioned before, the "plumping" effect really is just a "burning" effect, much like DuWop's lip venom, and I cannot apply this stuff to my lips very often or they start to hurt.
Lip Gloss -Bliss Labs - Breath-Freshening Lip Balm- Mint
amybean 12/24/2004 1:52:00 AM
After about 20 minutes, this leaves my lips feeling very matte. I would use DDF glossy lip therapy instead-- stays wet & glossy for hours.
I wish this stuff stayed longer on my eyes! How come everyone else talks about its "superb staying power" but it does not have any staying power on MY eyes? The only place it really stays is on the inside of my lower lids, which, though a remarkable achievement, is not enough to make me a believer.
I thought this was a great stain in terms of staying power, the only problem was that I used up half the tube in one week! That adds up to $8.00 per week to have nicely stained lips... thanks but I will stick with stains that I only have to repurchase once every three months...
