I used this for the first time the other night and I was excited. It's a little uncomfortable, but that's to be expected. I was expecting it to hurt much more when I took it off, but surprisingly it didn't if you do it slowly. I used this right after using a masque and I was surprised at the amount of dirt and oil that came off, even after a masque. When I took, it off, it made my nose very dry, so moistrize afterwards. But my skin felt really soft and clean! A day later and it still does!
One word for this...SEXY! This is so amazing. I want to buy my very own bottle since it's just so great! One sprtiz and it will last on you all day long! I once sprayed my best friend's bottle on my clothes and I seriously smelled it on my shirt two days later! HG men's cologne!!
I used some of my brother's for my legs and I went out and bought my own. I love using this after I shave my legs to moiztrize. It leaves my legs as smooth as butter. I get dry spots on my face during the winter, and this helped a little bit, but not that much. I would recommend this to anybody's skin except the face area. I love using cocoa butter for my face.
I love Burt's Bees products. I loved the original lip balm, and my friend gave me the honey lip balm. I've never been too fond of the taste of honey, and the smell of this isn't the best smelling. But, I love what this does for my lips. It's very smooth and creamy and it just feels really good for my lips. It's ultra moistrizing and works well!
Eye Shadow -NYX - Jumbo Eye Pencil in Strawberry Milk

I was on the hunt for my first NYX jumbo eyeshadow pencil when I went to Ulta the other day. I was dead set on getting Milk, but they were out of stock. So after looking through the colors, my mom said this would look good on me. I was hesitant because of the shimmer, but I figured I'd try it out. I really like it! I don't put a lot on because it's so creamy it would crease if I did. I wear it by itself since it's so pigmented. It's very light and natural once you apply a little and blend it out. Great for a cute day look, new favorite eye look!
Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion
oxnicoleox3 4/12/2010 8:58:00 AM
I was searching for cocoa butter in Walmart one day because my friend's mom reccommended it for scarring. I came across this and I knew it would be good quality from buying previous Queen Helene products. And I was SHOCKED at the price! $1. 38 for a HUGE 32 oz bottle! It smells AMAZING and its so creamy and rich. I LOVE this!
One of the best nail polishes I have ever used! I got this from a friend for Christmas and I purposly set it aside for spring since it was such a light color. I love it! It's a pretty pearly pink color and it can match with just about anything. Usually, I like to add a clear sparkly top coat to my nails to give it a little bit of glam. But this color is gorgeous just as it is! Amazing!
This was one of the very first cleansers I have ever used. I was told by a doctor it would improve my skin, since at the time I was younger and started breaking out. However, I used it day and night for weeks and I didn't notice any improvement at all. It also didn't even feel like my skin was clean. It hydrates skin, but I wouldn't use to to wash.
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Aquafina Flavor Splash Lip Balm

First off, my favorite lip balm was usually Soft Lips. But, when I saw my friend had this, I just had to try it out. I never saw Aquafina making anything except water, so I thought it must be super hydrating. I got mine in a four pack for $2.44. For FOUR of them! Two Soft Lips and one Burt's Bees are $2.97! These in my opinion work much better than Soft Lips. It's less waxy and goes on super smooth. My lips feel so silky and hydrated! The only downside is that it doesn't have SPF, so I wouldn't reccomend if you're going out on a hot summer day. But, it could also serve as a lipstick primer. Amazing product!
Usually, I don't really like cleansers. After I use them, they often don't even feel like I just washed my face. But this one actually makes my skin feel clean. I like how it foams and it smells great. It's super gentle for sensitive skin. Great buy!
Even though it's for men, I loved this so much when I first smelled it that I had to buy myself a bottle! It's such a clean, masculine scent. I spray it on my pillow sometimes and my hair smells like it for a long time. It smells really strong when you first spray it, but after about 15 minutes it's softer and smells even better. So great!
I think this is my favorite nail polish of all time! This is such a rich and gorgeous color of gold. It has so many glitter/sparkles in it and it's such a bold statement anyone will notice. My nail polish usually chips really quickly, but this polish didn't! It lasted about five days without chipping! Which is amazing for me. It stays on for a long time, a little hard to remove but that's fine to me.
This is the best chapstick/cold sore cream in the world. I've been using it for years and have gone through over ten jars of this. It's great for especially winter, when dry and cracked lips are seasonal. I like to put it on before I go to bed and in the morning. If a spot right below your nose is in pain and red from a runny nose, put some on and it'll feel so much better. Definitely continuing to buy it forever. It makes my lips so soft and hydrated. And only $1!
Eye Makeup Remover -Equate - Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
oxnicoleox3 1/24/2010 5:53:00 PM
I've used olive oil for the longest time to remove my eye makeup. After a while, I just got sick of how difficult it was to remove the oil residue. So, I tried Noxema and baby oil and nothing worked that well and they also burned my eyes. So, I picked this up. At first I was skeptical about it being oil free because it comes in two layers that looks oily. I was so excited to go home and try it out. And I am so in love with it! It's just as good as any other makeup remover for a cheaper price! It removes all eye makeup, even waterproof mascara easily! It's super gentle and you don't even need that much for it to do its job. It has natural ingredients like cucumber, it doesn't sting my eyes at all, and no oily residue! Definitely a must have!
There's nothing really special about this mascara. It doesn't really do much to your lashes except separate them. So, if you're looking for a very natural mascara, this is it. But, I was looking for full and long lashes. It doesn't really give me any length and it definitely doesn't give any volume. My lashes aren't thin to begin with, but they looked exactly the same. You can hardly even tell that there's mascara on because it barely gives any color. This mascara kinda blows.
