Tried this Badger cuticle ointment based on the reviews here and although it is very emollient externally, the strong fake lemon smells puts me off. It doesn't absorb quick and leaves an oily film. I will go back to my old faithful Neosporin triple antibiotic ointment which is used on minor cuts and abrasions to prevent infection and encourage healing.
Treatments -Garnier - Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment
ADELANOVAL 4/28/2013 1:26:00 PM
I didn't want to believe it, because I rarely use Garnier products, but I gave this a try and I do love it, because it is not greasy and absorbs quickly. I squeeze the water out of your hair, then when it's about 50% dry, then I put this golden orange oil on my hair, smells like baby cologne to me, but it dissipates quickly, it really does seal in moisture, makes hair dry faster and gives it shine...Why pay more for other oils, when this does the job?
Yes, definitely would buy again. Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray smells great - lemony scent and does not leave any white residue on my hair. It does not magically clean the hair, just removes oiliness and gives it a fresh feeling for another day. =)

BB Cream Skin 79 Super BB Cream Pink Label is a light absorbable facial moisturizer, which brightens you skin and helps resist signs of aging. Re: Arbutin. Is a a Hydroquinone derivative isolated from the leaves of the bearberry shrub, cranberry, blueberry, some mushrooms, and most types of pears. Because of arbutin’s hydroquinone content, it can have melanin-inhibiting properties. Ligtening skin cream with arbutin are very know in Asia and Japan, because it ihibits tyrosinase activity. Arbutin reacts gently on the skin and does not cause irritation. It’s a good anti- bacterial and anti – inflammatory ingredient. It is used also to cure allergic inflammation of the skin, prevent pigmentation. It can be also use to prevent liver spots, freckles, regulate melanogenesis and sunburn marks. Note: Hydroquinone and Mercury can be very dangerous for health of the skin. An alternative to this two can be Arbutin. Arbutin is a naturally occuring derivative of hydroquinone found in the leaves of cranberry, bearberry, and blueberry shrubs, most types of pears, and many other plants. Arbutin can cause cancer in combination with a bacteria, although there are claims that Arbutin can reduce cancer risk. There are still studies what can in combination with Arbutin can cause cancer. However Arbutin is safe and very good skin lightening agent for external use. It has three functions such as skin lightening, anti aging and UV protection. It infiltrates quickly in the skin without affecting cell multiplication and prevent forming melanin. Another function of arbutin is to protect skin from damages caused by free radical.

I've been wanting to get this E.l.f. Studio Tools 85011 Kabuki Face Brush for the longest, but didn't want to pay shipping & handling fees. I don't like to spend a lot of money on makeup products, so when I finally saw it at my local Target store for sale the other day, I couldn't believe it and I bought it. It is my first Kabuki brush, and I love it because is so soft and blends all make up powders beautifully.

I bought "Rimmel Airy Fairy" based on all the rave reviews here and on Youtube; however, it is just a cool-toned matte nude pink lipstick with a hint of mauve that disappears and looks too light on me. Rimmel may have pretty colors, but I can't stand the smell of their lipsticks... I mean, what the heck are they thinking? Something that goes on womens lips should not only look pretty, but smell and taste pleasant!

Styling Products -TRESemme - Instant Heat Tamer Spray
ADELANOVAL 8/14/2011 10:29:00 AM
Ladies be advised. Although this may be a great product for many, it does contain: DMDM HYDANTOIN, (which I believe is the tenth item listed on ingredients for this product). DMDM hydantoin is an antimicrobial formaldehyde releaser preservative. People exposed to such formaldehyde-releasing ingredients may develop a formaldehyde allergy or an allergy to the ingredient itself and its decomposition products. In the U.S., approximately 20% of cosmetics and personal care products contain a formaldehyde-releaser and the frequency of contact allergy to these ingredients is much higher among Americans compared to studies in Europe. http://www.ewg.org/hair-straighteners/our-report/formaldehyde-facts-production-and-use/ 10 best Heat Protectants - Check out the ingredients. http://www.folica.com/shop-by/top-10/heat-protectants
Clinique - Aromatics Elixir, is a woodsy, oakmossy, white jasmine, chamomile and patchouli strong "pungent" scent, which is definitely not for the faint of heart, because it's extremely concentrated. When you first spray it on, (one or two spritz will do) it smells "intoxicantingly" strong, non-sweet, but after a few minutes, it will soften into a powdery, soapy, "Super Clean" aromatics scent (unless you overspray too much, in that case, you WILL need some oxygen!), But this this is very classical "mature" scent, which will get you lots of compliments everywhere you go, because no one can forget you wearing it and it for a long, long time...even till a few days later! There is another scent that could be a dupe "designer perfume" for this one called: Royal Platinum 04 Beautiful Eau de Parfum.
I just recently discovered this E.L.F. line in Kmart and it's also sold in Target. I don't like shimmery or splarky blushes, because it just doesn't look natural. This is my everyday go to blush, because it's a really nice matte pink color blush and gives you a great rosy, natural flush. Does not cause pimples or break outs and lasts all day. This is my first E.L.F. "Tickled Pink" blush, and I've already hit pan on it. Going to stock up, in case they think of discontinuing it. The price can't be beat. Try it - but don't buy them all, ok...LOL :)
Lipstick -Maybelline - Moisture Extreme - Born With It [DISCONTINUED]
ADELANOVAL 5/20/2011 10:08:00 PM
I also think the Moisture Extreme line is one of Maybelline's greatest hits - I find these line, so moisturizing on my lips. And I love it's watermelon scent. Makes my day! I just don't understand why good products get discontinued? It baffles my mind why most makeup items I like, get get discontinued, but thankfully I found this pinky mauvy goldy one today at Big Lots inside a bin full of makeup for $1.50, yay!!!
