I love this shampoo for my elbow length straight,dry hair. It is very gentle and not drying for me in the least. Great packaging and subtle soft melon smell.
This is my HG Eyebrow pencil. So easy to apply and get right. It is the perfect color for my nearly black brows. Fabulous product!
This is just as good if not better than the very overpriced Dr. Hauschka Lip balm. The Weleda version is half the cost and has the same great Rose oil scent and all natural ingredients. Is is creamier in consistency and less greasy. Love this one!
I like the concept of these weird bars. You just break off a bit and you don't need much (maybe a Tbl size chunk will do)and crumble under the tap as the bath runs and you get tons of fun bubbles.The price is very low considering you get quite a bit out of one bubble bar. I've tried Ruby Slippers and the scent was a bit heavy for my taste. I wish they made one that smelled like Silky Underpants Powder. Also I could do without the glitter which is a pain to clean out of the tub later.
This stuff smells so sexy on the skin. A Musky Cocoa butter, vanilla with light jasmine edge. Very unique earthy and warm. And the powder feels like silk on the skin. Only complaint it the package which always seems to shake out too much and doesn't close tightly enough.
I have these in Vixen ( a fabulous red ) and Iced Mocha ( a shimmery bronze rose) The texture of these lipsticks is creamy and great They don't bleed and stay on fairly well. They are not drying.
Bronzers -Dr. Hauschka - Translucent Bronze Concentrate

This product is fairly simple but can be used in a variety of ways. It can be mixed in with lotion, sunscreen or foundation to add color or used directly on clean skin. The color can be layered for intensity but it can become too rusty looking if you use too heavy a hand. The dispenser tends to clog up and then you get an inevitable clump of dried up bronzer that comes out in your hand and must be discarded. I find this annoying.
This is a nice powder bronzer. What I like best is the balance of matte and shimmer. If there is too much shimmer it looks like a disco nightmare and it a bronzer is too matte it looks chalky and just as fake. This one is a good mix. And for the price it can't be beat. It is a nice golden bronze brown not to orangey or pinky
Lotions/ Creams -J. Lo - Glow sexybody bronzing body moisturizer

I love this for the summer. It is sexy and fun and looks great on tanned skin. A little can go a long way and it is nice to sometimes cut this with the regulat glow body lotion ir with any other lotion you use. The smell of Glow is so much better in the lotion form than in the eau du toilette. It is much softer and blends with the skin's chemistry. Whenever I wear the lotion people ask me what I am wearing and comment that it smells great. The secret is to not overdo this one.
I'm one of the people who lives this conditioner. It has gotten so much hype but for me it really does work well. I have very long straight hair. It leaves my hair soft and silky and shiny and I love the smell ( baby powderish) The price is fairly high but you don't need much per application.
All of the Kiss My Face olive oil soaps are great. I especially love the Honey one. They are very pure mild soaps that are great for sensitive skin. My husband won't use anything else in the shower. He has very allergic skin and this is one of the only soaps that has Never given him a reaction. The price is very reasonable and most all healthfood stores and some drugstores now carry the line.
This is a very emolient face cream great for extreme conditions. I think it is too heavy for an everyday moisturizer but it works wonders in cold mountain weather. They sell it in small travel size tubes which are the perfect size to put in a jacket pocket before hitting the slopes. This has saved my face snowboarding in windy freezing conditions. You can put it on your lips too. Smells like orange rinds and calendula.
This is a very nice face cream with SPF 15. No chemical sunscreen and a mild baby powder scent. It is hydrating but not greasy ( thank you shea butter) It is definately a winter favorite. I find it a bit too heavy for my skin in summer. The tube package is great for travel and also for squeezing every last bit out. The product lasts a long time you don't need much for the whole face.
This is elegant and luxurious from the packaging to the feel of the product. The scent is delicious, sweet yet botanical. The texture is silky and non drying. I use it at the end of a shower and rinse it off lightly so the scent lingers. Pure indulgence.
Tinted Moisturizer -Juice Beauty - Tinted Moisturizer - SPF 30

This is a pretty great natual tinted moisterizer. I love that it has an SPF of 30 All Titanium Dioxide no chemicals. The tint is a bit too slight for me. I sometimes add a bit of foundation too it. Otherwise it is moisturizing with out being too greasy. My face felt less shiny at the end of the day wearing this than with Murad oil free tinted SPF 15?! Some people may not like the smell It does smell fairly strong from the essential oils used but only as you apply it then the smell fades.
