An okay scrub. This is definately not for everyday. Feels good once in a while but is too grating on my skin when I started using it daily.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

What can I say about this stuff. I used to love Clinique products, including this lotion when I was in high school years ago. I recently tried this again when I found it in my brother's (!) bathroom. A few days after using this I broke out with two monster zits. I didn't directly connect it with this stuff until I read these reviews. Ah, yes now it all makes sense. Needless to say I will not be repurchasing.
I found something very similar to this at Big Lots for $1.99...seriously.
I must agree with all the raves. An awesome color that I never would have thought would look good on me.
This worked O.K. for me. My teeth didn't get significantly whiter, but did get somewhat more white than when I started. My complaints are that the little brush sucks and my teeth started getting a little sensitive after I had used it for a couple days. I may buy again, just because it is the only whitening product that has ever done anything for me.
Scrubs -Lancome - Aroma Tonic Energizing Body Scrub

Wow, I love this product! I love how the scent in the morning really wakes me up. A little pricey, but well worth it IMO.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

This is a decent eye makeup remover. I probably wouldn't buy again, just because there are cheaper alternatives out there (i.e. Almay), but I used it all up so I can't say I didn't like it!
I like this stuff for days when you are going to be outdoors doing something and don't want to look all made up. Works well and provides sheer coverage. Overall, I don't wear this product much, but I like it for certain situations.
Cleansers -St. Ives - Clear Pore Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

I found this at Big Lots for about a dollar and I use it when I run out of my HG Neutrogena. I think it's a great product for girls with oily skin (i.e. me!). For the price you can't beat it. I don't know if I would buy if it were more expensive though because there are better cleansers out there.
St. Ives comes out with some good stuff. I can never find ANY exfoliating scrubs at the drugstore, and this one is always there and reasonably priced for a decent sized bottle. I like the bottle too because when you get down to the last drops, you can just turn it on its top and make sure you get every last drop. (I hate bottles that you have to squeeze and shake excessively just to get to the final 1/3 of the product. It loses one lippie because I wish it were a little more grainy.
Self Tanners -Banana Boat - VitaSkin Instant Sunless Tanning Lotion-Dark
clover 5/30/2003 5:42:00 PM
This is a pretty decent self-tanner. I actually LIKE the scent, which is rare for me when it comes to tanners. The lotion is rich and moisturizing and the color turns out pretty even and nice. It lasts a pretty long time as well without having to reapply everyday (unlike Ban de Soleil, Neutrogena, etc.) I took away one lippie, however, because I noticed it fades kinda weird. But that's only when I'm lazy and don't have time to reapply every few days or so. All in all a wonderful product IMO.
Not a bad lipstick at all. There are some really nice colors and for the price you can try out 10 to 15 at a time for the cost of one MAC lipstick. Of course the quality is not as nice as higher end lippies, but it really isn't that much worse. All in all, a great product with a lot of great colors.
Scrubs -Totally Juicy - Hot Apple Sugar Body Scrub

I loved this stuff. Much grainer and more exfoliating than other scrubs from the drug store and it smells terrific. When I washed it off in the shower I was amazed at how smooth my skin felt. At the price it is definately worth trying.
Skincare - Body -Johnson & Johnson - Soothing Skin Baby Bath
clover 5/20/2003 11:05:00 PM
I like this stuff. I use it as a shower gel and it makes my skin very soft with a nice understated scent.
I bought this in Sparkling Sand and I am torn in my opinion of this product. On one hand the color, shine and price is nice. On the other hand the "diamonds" seem like they make my lips very rough and uncomfortable. Oh yeah, and I HATE the pink packaging.
