I totally agree about not even thinking of putting up a review. I've used it for so long to remove makeup. This stuff foams up even for waterproof makeup. You know how most cleansers won't even try to remove makeup, well this gets rid of everything. I think a cleanser is much better than using a makeup remover wipe that you can get in your eyes. I always need it because I wear makeup almost everyday, it's a real makeup melter but leaves skin soft/smoothe.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Fresh Vanilla - body splash

Well what do you expect...the true smell of vanilla is not a sugar cookie. I am sick to death of warm vanilla sugar and glad this was at the big sale. It was 50% off, so about $5. To me this is rich, spicy vanilla. Reminds me of the henri bendel vanilla bean candle. It's warm and so sexy! I can't stand when they get rid of good scents like this one...91% would buy again!
The caps can be a little hard to open, but I love the 2 in 1. This smells so good. I don't notice any of the previous aussie product scent. They revamped the whole line and now they are all different smells. I use this by itself and it is AMAZING!!! I don't even need an extra conditioner. The jojoba oil in it really makes hair shiny, but not oily.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Exotic Coconut

Um, what coconut have these people been smelling? The sweet suntan lotion smell or coco cabana is not the real smell of coconuts. Buy a real coconut, open it up or toast it and you get this smell! Come on people...I don't own the lotion, so it may burn skin but the spray is awesome. I used to not think anything of this scent, but now I adore it. I hope they don't get rid of it!
Primer/ Corrector -Maybelline - Maybelline Coverstick Corrector Concealer

I wonder why not many have reviewed this, cause it is the best selling drugstore concealer nationwide. Proof is in the june issue of allure based on reader votes. This is opaque and covers EVERYTHING. Just a little dab goes a long way, and it's waterproof, but comes off with face wash. Under the eyes, and there are no traces of dark circles. I swear by this stuff. Don't waste money on a liquid because they can't cover much. I use light beige, and I've had a stick for over a year and it's not gone yet. Hope they never get rid of it.
Skincare - Body -Noxzema - Soothe and Smoothe- refreshing bikini spray
staciarose22 5/28/2007 7:08:00 PM
After using the bikini creams, gels, etc. for years I'm glad someone finally made a spray for this. The can locks, so you can take it with you. It has colloidal oatmeal and capislow, which reduces hair growth appearance....Not sure that works, but love the soothing formula. It doesn't sting at least. Also says soothing botanical extracts are included. Rids you of bumps, redness, and irritation. Can be used all over the body, not just bikini area. Practically perfect compared to bikini zone in my book. Is a little confusing, it says wait 12 hours after shaving and a day for waxing before you can apply? I guess that's if your really red or swollen....$6 for a 6oz spray can.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - White Tea and Ginger
staciarose22 5/16/2007 11:31:00 PM
I cannot explain it, but I've become addicted to this spray. I know it smells like tea, and arden perfume wore that out years ago. It's different, more fresh and lasts. Maybe the ginger, but it's a unique tea scent. Very refreshing and zingy tea. Not discontinued, but harder to find. Look for it online or at the semi annual sales. They are in the summer and after christmas. Fragrance Top Notes: Yuzu, Lemon, Green Tea, Bergamot Fragrance Mid Notes: Geranium, Nutmeg, Rose, Earl Grey Tea Fragrance Base Notes: Musk, Woods, Berries
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Temptations- Island Coconut body spray
staciarose22 5/15/2007 7:02:00 PM
I love the idea of the scent, love the bottle with tiny ice cubes inside that shake up your spray. Just didn't buy it because it faded in no time at all. I wasn't out of the store before it went away without a trace. It's not really coconut either, more fruity tropical notes.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Bronze Bombshell
staciarose22 5/15/2007 6:52:00 PM
I went right to the store to buy this after sampling it for a few weeks. For about a day it lasted a long time, then it faded in no time once I bought a bottle. I love the scent, but had to return. I might end up buying again if it's goes on sale.
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Veet's Bladeless Razor hair removal kit
staciarose22 5/13/2007 5:47:00 PM
I'm so unsure of this product...ugh. I always hate hair removal lotions, but want to try the new wave of products. Has anyone tried (or their bf's) the nair for men line? I have a feeling it might work faster if not better. I know it's for thick,coarse men's hair, which I don't have thank God. Just wondering if it works better than lotions for women...
Lip Treatments -mark - Sheer Peach Kiss Therapy Super Soothing Lip Balm
staciarose22 5/9/2007 7:18:00 PM
I think this color is gorgeous with or without a tan, and so right for summer. It's a good mix up for your makeup routine. I've had my tin for some time and the rose scent fades over time. 100% better than that rosebud salve. That was crap, just rose scented vaseline. This is the best lip balm I've ever tried, and it does soothe lips that hurt or are cracked.
Skincare - Body -Unlisted Brand - Band Aid- Blister Block
staciarose22 5/8/2007 2:53:00 PM
I know this is a different kind of skincare, but the best kind. We all get blisters and this time of year is notorious for strappy sandals, flip flops etc that dig into your feet. This is pretty good, but it's actually only 3 cheap ingredients! Wish it actually coated like a liquid bandage. You will have to reapply so often. Still since there's nothing on the market for this, I gave it a high rating.
Finally there making a retractable brow pencil! I own several of the dark brown, and these go on sale often. I would say it's as good as mac's brow pencil. As with all makeup, you have to know how to use it the right way for you. My brows are very thin and never grew back after a bad wax job years ago. lol This grabs onto the hair and skin to make a good fake eyebrow! Start at the inner corner to shape and work your way out with a light hand. Practice does make it perfect. UPDATE: NOT AS GOOD AS WATERPROOF GLIMMERSTICKS.
Eye Shadow -Cover Girl - Eye Enhancers - Golden Sunrise
staciarose22 4/26/2007 12:29:00 PM
One of those universal golden shades that so many can wear. At first I thought it was too yellow gold, but a light hand makes it gorgeous with black liner. I agree that blue eyes pop with these warm shades, but really any eye color looks good with this one.
Eyeliner -New York Color - Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil - all
staciarose22 4/26/2007 12:24:00 PM
BEST EYELINER MADE...IN DRUGSTORE OR EXPENSIVE BRANDS... I normally think that super cheap makeup is poorly made, but this company has some good products. I got the liner in black, and I think the other shade was mink... It was the bronze brown. It really does hold on all day. This stuff does not move or smear at all. Put it on your bare lid first and then apply shadow etc. I found that putting it over anything else will only smudge. The colors are pretty and range from smoky violet to electric blue. $3.75, but it's worth so much more. I will only use this eyeliner, no other brands. It makes lining the inner rims so easy and the black shade is the darkest you can get. Girls, you really have to go out and buy it. I actually don't mind that it has to be sharpened... because if it wasn't it would dry out faster and you'd waste money. The trick to these is make sure your inner rim is dry... It takes practice to not get watery eyes. I don't know why some girls can't use this or love it. It's pretty damn amazing.. and I have Chanel liners that don't do what it does.
