I had to squeeze the bottle very hard for the product to come out. It looked very grainy and brown. The smell was horrible!! I did not like it at all. I scrubbed my face oh so gently with this and it still felt very rough and harsh!! My face felt very smooth after rinsing but I don't know if i want to go through rough scrubbing on my face again for the result I can get with other products. I gave it 2 lippies because I can use this as a body scrub instead.
It's a daily scrub because the beads are very fine which means it's very gentle on the skin. It did leave my skin smooth but it isn't strong enough for when I want to use a scrub to really exfoliate. Or should I say this is more like a cleanser with a mild exfoliation?
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer spf15

I was looking for a day moisturizer and came across this one with SPF 15. I especially like the pump bottle. The moisturizer is creamy but not too thick or runny. It has a very nice subtle scent and left my skin feeling smooth. I do have to wait maybe 8 minutes or so before I put on makeup so it can all be absorbed into my skin. Overall it's a good moisturizer.
Sweet!! This fragrance is very sweet and girly! My boyfriend described it as cute, sweet, and just adorable!! Too bad this is a limited edition product :( I will totally buy another bottle if I find one.
This is my everyday fragrance. I am on my second bottle! The bottle is so beautiful with a fairy on top. The fragrance itself is a teal color like Tiffany's..the whole packaging makes the bottle so magical. I love love love its fresh fruity citrus scent! A lot of people ask about it when I wear it, most of them don't know about this or where to get it which makes this scent more unique! Will definitely purchase again and again....
Daisy is my favorite Marc Jacobs fragrance! It's so fresh, not overpowering at all. The bottle is very cute. My boyfriend and my friends love it. The only bad thing is it doesn't stay on for very long...so I got the roller ball from sephora to reapply on the go.
Powder -Shiseido - Sun Protection Compact Foundation

I LOVE this powder foundation!! I have been using it for a few years now and nothing can compare. Every time I use this, I get many compliments on my porcelain and flawless skin. It's so natural most people don't know I am using foundation. A one step finish for high SPF sunscreen and foundation! The finishing look is beautiful~ once the foundation sets in with the natural oils on your skin, it looks even better! The bright blue case is small and very convenient. It has a mirror and a separate compartment for the sponge that comes with the refill foundation. The sponge is great for both application and touch up. This is a great product!! For the few years I've been using this..I have not had one complaint.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - Wetslicks Fruit Spritzers - Guava Splash

This is one of the worst lip glosses I've used! The packaging is average like most lip glosses. The color is a sheer pink but it looked like a clear gloss on the lips. It has a very fruity scent...almost like lip smackers. No matter how much I put on It felt so slippery and thin on my lips... It's not moisturizing. and it made my lips tingled!!! ...like I am about to have an allergic reaction to the lip gloss (which I didn't, thankfully!) This lip gloss did nothing but to keep my lips smelling fruity. And I am too paranoid about the tingling on my lips...this is going into the trash.
Lotions/ Creams -Johnson & Johnson - Melt Away Stress Body Lotion

Lavender is a scent I cannot resist! I first saw a travel size of this at target. It's packaged in a purple squeeze bottle...when I squeezed out the lotion..it's purple in color too!! The texture is very smooth and creamy. It's not greasy at all and it absorbed into my skin right away. My skin felt so smooooooooth it was heaven! Even my coworkers would stop by my desk just to get a pump of it~ I became addicted to this lotion very quickly...only to find that when I use it over and over again throughout the day...it feels like there's a film of wax building up on my hands... I had to wash my hands to get it off! This lotion is great if it's not used excessively. I am currently on my second bottle but I find myself trying other lotions perhaps to replace this one..don't know if I will purchase my third..
The scent of this shampoo is what makes me buy this product again! It smells so fresh and the scent stays in my hair for quite some time! I never had a problem with my hair being too dry, so I don't know how hydrating this product is exactly...but my hair feels very soft after each wash. It lathers up really good with a small amount for my long hair. The only complaint I have is that this shampoo and conditioner weighs my hair down...
Cleansers -Shu Uemura - Cleansing Beauty Oil Premium A/O
beibeilei 11/8/2009 10:48:00 AM
I hesitated for a long long time before buying this product because of its price. Now, this is one of my must-haves. I don't know how to remove my makeup without this anymore! I have been using the high performance balancing cleansing oil advanced formula (the yellow bottle) and it is great! Some of you say it takes an extra step to remove waterproof mascara...if you massage your face/eyes with the oil, everything will eventually come off. It's not irritating to the eyes at all. My skin feel so clean after using this. The bottle comes with a pump and two to three pumps will do the trick. I still follow up with a cleanser in case of any oil residue. I got the travel size oil premium A/O with green tea extract at sephora. It works the same except this one has a very strong scent to it that I don't like. I will definitely continue to use the yellow bottle. I love this product!! Highly recommended!
