Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - Shiseido Benefiance Eye Masks
AmyinNO 5/8/2005 6:19:00 PM
These pure retinol eye treatment sheets are divine. They really diminish fine lines and get rid of dark circles. They come in little trays, soaking in the pure retinol magic. You leave them on for 15 minutes and voila! Shiseido has a great product here and they know it, so they're charging an arm and a leg! But, I'd still buy again since they so do the job! Love the product. Just wish they were cheaper. I'd probably use more often.
Eye Shadow -Rimmel - Water Cool Shadows (creme shadows)

I have two of these shadows and they are great as a wash and overall color. They go on so cool and soft. Really nice colors too. Definately at this price you can buy a ton!
Brows -Cat Cosmetics - Sophisticat Brow Pencil and Grooming Brush
AmyinNO 5/8/2005 6:12:00 PM
The quality and 'universality' of this pencil are fabulous. The grooming brush is somewhat like a mascara brush and really grooms the brows. My only problem with it is that it does not retract. Once you advance the pencil, it does not go backwards! Otherwise, great product!
Great brush and I love the compact handle. Very soft bristles, great for applying blush. No shedding!
Treatments (Eye) -Shiseido - Bioperformance Super Eye Contour

I love this product. It is comparable to the La Prairie Cellular Mollecular at about half the price(still it's $50). But, I hate the pump packaging because lots of product gets left behind. You have to scoop it out with a q tip towards the end. I highly rec. this product for it's quality, just wish they'd change the packaging. It's great for fine lines and dark circles.
Doesn't hold a candle to my regular moisturizer, Shiseido Benefiance. Wanted to try something cheaper, and this just proves the point that you get what you pay for. Not nearly moisturizing enough for me, and the anti-aging effects were barely noticeable.
A great product not just for drugstore! The consistency and coverage of this is fabulous. The only problem is finding the right color and, as always, drugstore brands don't have enough color selection. But, it glides on smoothly, just a little goes a long way and it lasts all day! I use it as a concealer as well and it really gives a nice all over finish. Highly recommend it once you find your color.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - Aromatherapy Vanilla and Jasmine Sugar Scrub
AmyinNO 10/28/2004 10:59:00 PM
A fabulous fragrance but just a so-so scrub. The sugar and oil separate easily and have to be mixed up all the time. Also, it leaves a very oily residue on my skin.
I like the other L'oreal mascaras better. yes, this one curls my lashes slightly, but it doens't give them any thickness. I think I'll stick with voluminous.
I love the color and just the right amount of shimmer. I use it as an eyeshadow also. Love this product!
Hair Removal -Unlisted Brand - Veet's Bladeless Razor hair removal kit
AmyinNO 6/30/2004 10:42:00 PM
There is not much good I can say about this product, except that my daughter loves to pretend to shave with the bladeless razor. I left it on for 8 minutes, and it still left many hairs behind. I really had to scrape to remove what I could, and that still didn't leave me any where near smooth. This goes in the garbage. Oh well, at least it was on sale at Walgreens!
This is awesome stuff. I love the smell, the way it makes my skin feel -- everything! It is pricey, but worth it in my book. The best scrub I've ever used!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

Great cleanser that really cleans and leaves you feeling refreshed. Love the scent! Little scrubbers feel great on skin.

This is my favorite moisturizer. It's light, cooling. Love the texture and feel.
