For the most part, The Body Shop makes some quality products that are worth the price. I use this shower gel morning and night and it's great to use when shaving. The only drawback I have with this gel is that it is over fragranced and it may not be good to use for people with overly sensitive skin. Other than that, i can't complain. It's a great product that moisturizes and cleans deep down.
I really liked this eye primer for several reasons: -great packaging -affordable -no irritation/redness/stinging when applying -can apply makeup minutes after using it After using this primer my makeup stays on almost all day until i was it off at night. I have used multiple primers from Mac, Too Faced, and Bare Minerals but this is the best one i've found yet.
Treatments -Murad - Resurgence Age-Diffusing Serum
JaneWhit99 2/12/2013 2:36:00 AM
At first this product was actually great. It made my skin glow and feel healthy. I really enjoyed the first 3-5 days and was quite excited. Only problem is after 5 days, my face started burning! It made me look like I had rosacea! My skin hurt and I thought maybe it was doing something useful but it wasn't unfortunately :( Only causing irritation. I thought maybe it had something to do with the weather but after I stopped, within 2 days my skin felt MUCH better. I have never had this type of reaction to a product before. If you have sensitive skin (mine isn't even that sensitive) I wouldn't recommend at all.
Styling Products -Paul Mitchell - Super Skinny Serum

I generally really like Paul MItchel products. This one is pretty good, nothing spectacular though. It does help me when I am straightening my hair and actually has a really good scent to it. I don't like the greasy feeling I get from it which is the only thing that really bugs me. Other than that, it's a decent product in my book.
Moisturizers -Olay - Regenerist Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment
JaneWhit99 12/6/2012 5:45:00 PM
Really like my Olay Regenerist Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment. Really did wonders for my dry skin during the last winter time. One thing is if you are acne prone I would advise staying away from it. A lot of my girlfriends steer clear of this product because they claim it broke them out. On that note, I have never seen a pimple from it and really overall love this product. Its so silky and smooth and leaves my face feeling invigorated the whole next day. I truly look forward to putting this on my face throughout the day and it used to give me excitement when bed time is coming!
This product is a great concealer!. It's not too dry and not too creamy. It blends very well. Only a little is needed and it goes a long way.I use light bisque. I also like to use other concealers with my BB one and everything goes on really well. First I use my MAC skin finish corrector in orange/terracotta to erase the darkness of my undereye dark circles. Then I use my BB concealer in light bisque. Then I use my MAC studio finish concealer.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is one of the best kept beauty secrets for hair. I apply a generous amount into my hair before washing it and let it sit for about 30-45 minutes in a bun. Once in the shower i rinse it out with water and then apply my shampoo and conditioner. My hair feels extremely soft and silky for days after. I do this routine probably once a week and it helps keep my hair healthy and strong. For best results, the highest quality should be used but if you don't want to shell out a bunch of money then just use whatever is in your kitchen pantry :)
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Drama Clean refreshing shampoo
JaneWhit99 11/29/2012 9:35:00 PM
This product smells really great and lathers really well. It has a fresh fruity/floral scent and does not leave greasy residue in your hair. The only drawback about this product is that I don't trust it for color treated hair. I highlight my hair every few months and i want to keep the color preserved and fresh. I do not use this shampoo right after I get my hair done but i do use it a few months into it. I would reccomened using this on non-blonde color treated hair.
I love Laura Mercier products and especially 'eye basics' I apply this product before applying darker eye shadows and it keeps my eye shadow on all day, literally all day. I have never found a product that works as well. I will always be a loyal fan to this line. Would you buy this product again? yes yes yes!
Fragrances -Elizabeth Arden - Radiance by Britney Spears
JaneWhit99 11/29/2012 8:50:00 PM
I really enjoy every Britney Spears perfume that comes out. Every fragrance is fresh, floral, and great for everyday wear. I only use 2-3 squirts and it is not too overpowering
I absolutely love this E.L.F pallet. I can easily wear these colors during the day to work and dramatically play with the colors for a perfect night time look. It is subtle, sexy, and chic looking. Overall, I would rate this E.L.F. product 9/10. My only complaint is that I wish that it lasted longer on my face. After a few hours I find myself having to re-apply.
Around my eyes always gets dry patches that are very aggravating and uncomfortable. A lot of problems helped moisturize but really made my eye area but and itch. This is a little pot of gold in my book. I use the tip of my fingers to apply just a little and it always does the trick!
I see a lot of people ranting and raving on this product but I personally HATED IT!!! It is advertised to give you a subtle glow after a few days. Within a few hours I had huge splotchy golden/orange spots all over my arms. I didn't have a base tan and it really looked like I contracted a nasty disease instead of looking tan!! In my opinion, don't waste your money on this product!
This from what I have heard is a hit or miss for a lot of people. In my case, it was a hit :) This definitely added length, holds the curl, and lots of volume to my lashes. The only trouble I saw with this product is it is a bit difficult to remove. Either use solid balm or a pad and you should be fine. I have bought this about 8 times and will keep doing so until I find something better!
The color is wonderful on me. It's a rather berryish color that really makes my cheeks stand out! This is great for medium to darker skin tones so it doesn't make you look like a clown. It's great for going to work or going out at night and isn't too flashy, it's just right :)
