I use this instead of shaving cream for shaving my legs. It lasts a lot longer. It doesn't dry your skin out like regular body wash does. It is nice and creamy. I have tried the pink one as well, and like it too.
Misc Beauty Tools -Tarte - Picture Perfect Eyelash Curler

I returned this. It was too "narrow". I had to struggle to get all my eyelashes to fit in it. And I find it made my lashes stick straight up, rather than a nice curl. Do not recommend. Get a cheaper one at the drugstore its just as good.
Eye Makeup Remover -Neutrogena - Oil Free eye makeup remover

I am pleased with this eye makeup remover. It does not sting my eyes. I use Albolene and cotton pads to remove most of my eye makeup, and I use Neutrogena's eye makeup remover and Q tips to get rid of what's left. You have to shake it before using it, since there are 2 "layers". Like, oil and water. The only thing I don't like is that when you buy it, there isn't a "safety seal" on top. And I find that if I just use it by itself to get rid of eye makeup ( without Albolene first ) it takes WAY too much product to remove it all.
This products stings my eyes. My eyes are very dry and sensitive. I would dip a Q tip in this product and use it to clean off my mascara, and it would really irritate my eyes. I had to flush my eyes out with water immediately after using this product, my eyes burned so much. I now use Neutrogena oil-free eye makeup remover and it is much better.
I really liked the color and it suits me very well ( I have blonde hair, grey eyes, and very fair skin ) It is neutral pink with gold undertones. I have a hard time finding lipsticks that suit me, and I hit the jackpot with this one. It matches the natural color of my lips almost perfectly . Because it is so sheer and neutral, I don't have to check in the mirror all the time to make sure it isn't bleeding, smudging etc. the way I do with darker lipstick. One word of warning though: as much as I love the color, I find that it makes my lips chapped : - ( It surprised me because it feels soft and glossy. I was pretty disappointed about that. But I like the color so much I wear it anyway
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup

I have very acne prone skin, and I have yet to find a foundation that doesn't make my skin break out worse. I tried this because it has salicylic acid in it, and that is supposed to help fight acne. I have tried other products that have salicylic acid, and they have all made my skin worse. This was no exception. I wore it for a few days and noticed my skin breaking out more. Not to mention it feel it uncomfortable on your skin and I couldn't wait to wash it off when I got home. And the colors don't match very well. But as I said, all foundations make my skin break out. So who knows, this product might work for you. I just know it didn't work for me.
This is my HG cleanser. I have had very bad acne for years, and have tried EVERYTHING there is. I even went on Accutane for a while. NOTHING works as well as this stuff. I have used this product for about 2 years now. Whenever I use any other cleanser my skin breaks out. This is the only stuff that works. My skin is not perfect, and yes I still do get blemishes occasionally, but I don't think I'll ever find anything that works as well as this. Definitely worth trying.
Skincare - Face -Pro Activ - Clarifying Night Cream

I am a big fan of The Girls Next Door, and when I heard that Holly uses this night cream, I really wanted to try it, since her skin is flawless. Also, I read the reviews at QVC.com and they were all positive. It figures, since QVC sells the stuff. Anyway, I have very acne prone skin, it made me break out. It left a greasy film on my face, and I woke up with new blemishes. I am going back to the Repairing lotion. Luckily, I was able to return it, because it was not cheap.
