Cleansers -Dove - Essential Nutrients Cleansing Pillows

Typically, I use a higher-end cleanser for my acne-prone skin, but this drugstore goodie takes the cake. Not too drying, not too moisturizing and perfect for removing makeup. A definate repurchase.
I am not so fond of this packaging, but I really love this product...especially after a nice bath. My husband loves the smell of it when I come to bed after a dousing of Honey Bee Have!
This soap smells awesome. I am usually a strict body wash girl, but just had to add this soap to my last LUSH order. It smells just like the creamy candy bubble bar (wonderful) and I love the pink lather! Would definately repurchase if it had more moisture to offer.
I was so excited to receive this product after MUAers raved about it. True enough, it lived up to it's reputation. It smells incredible and bubbles so nicely. I love the scent, and my husband does too! Yay for LUSH.
I adore this product and use it strictly for hair, so $20 is not a bad price. I have dry, colour-treated hair and I use this product almost nightly as a conditioning treatment. I use a few drops and rub them in to my hair, scalp, and neckline. In the a.m., I just shampoo as normal and use my routine styling products - when I decide to have a natural day (i.e. "curly) this is how I finish my dried hair. It has made a huge difference in my hair's overall condition and luster.
Shave Products -Aveeno - Positively Smooth Shave Gel

Although I would still recommend waxing (especially for the bikini) I will use this product for my legs. I works wonderfully, great in combo with the positively smoooth moisturizer. I also use the moisturizer on my waxed areas and the seem to stay smoother longer. The smell is light and pleasant.

I first tried this in the travel size and because I fell in love so fast, purchased the large bottle the week after! My combo/acne prone skin feels great after this wash. I am a tried and true fan of this product line. :)
Lip Treatments -A Zaftig Woman - Vanilla Shea Butter Lipbalm

I received a sample of this product in a swap. It is simple, smells sweet like frosting and works wonderfully. It is a very good deal for the price. The packaging is less than desirable..but (just like Kiehls) I would rather have them put the money into the product than the packaging. Good buy!
I think this is an exceptional deal for the quality of these soaps. I purchase mine in the 3.5 oz so that I can go between honey, vanilla, and my favorite, verbena. The lather is creamy and the scent is luxurious. I use this at home and take it wherever I travel. A must have for bath/shower lovers everywhere! :) Don't miss out on buying the travel tin for these 3.5 oz bars, too!
Shampoo -Modern Organic Products (MOP) - Pear shampoo

I wasn't sure about this product from some of the reviews in magazines...but purchased it on a whim. I have to say...now, I am fully addicted and switch between this and Redken Honey & Oatmeal. It smells wonderful and leaves my dry, wavy hair very clean and soft.
Misc Beauty Tools -Tweezerman - Blackhead/Blemish Extractor
april1976 10/22/2002 10:50:00 PM
I get a facial every four to six weeks and this tool has extended my between time by a couple of weeks...at least. I takes practice to use, but it fastly becomes effortless and is much less harsh than a finger nail or eek, a safety pin! I always steam my face first before using the tool. I clean it with a cotton swab dipped in Biore' tea tree toner. :)
I love this as a spot treatment but would not use it on my entire face...it's too much! I have tried many other more expensive department store spot treats (mario badescu, etc...) and this one works better. It helps to draw gunk out of my pimples and dry them out. If you did just that, this tube would last you about five years...and for less than three dollars!
This product has transformed my dry, thick hair. Although I am not in love with the scent, I don't find it to be as bad as some people say. I use it every morning with a dab of MOP leave-in conditioner. My hair remains smooth and shiny all day long. I would recommend over and over again.
Lip Gloss -L'Occitane - Tinted lipbalm in "Blackberry"

Raves for shea butter balm in Blackberry. I found a rec for this in a magazine and purchased it right after. I love the color no matter what my haircolour is ( brown or brown with highlights). It goes on smooth and smells good. Works best with a lip brush or just a finger!
