Best drugstore mascara I've found. And better than alot of department store brands. Does everything I want in a mascara - makes my lashes very visible, very dark, and very long.

With winter here, my skin is already getting that flaky dry look in areas. I'm always hesitant to try night creams, because I basically have oily skin that still breaks out on occasion, but after just one night, this cream worked great. I woke up to no flakes at all. It felt really good on my skin too, not greasy at all. I really like it.
I love it because it smells like Love's Baby Soft!!! People always tell me I smell good when I wear it. It's light and lovely. It doesn't last long, but usually it's the heavy ones I don't like that last long anyway. Carry it with you so you can spritz throughout the day.
I really like this on my thin, fine, curly hair. Not crazy about the smell, it's ok, but kind of like a men's cologne. It does help the frizz tremendously, while emphasizing the curl. It has a kind of "silicone" feel, which I like, not an oily feel. I'll definitely repurchase, even though it is expensive. A little does go a long way.

Best suncreen for my face (too expensive for body!) I've ever used. It goes on really white and greasy but within seconds of rubbing it in, it completely disappears. Can't tell it's there. Works perfectly under makeup. Better than Neutrogena Dry Touch which I've been using. Worth the cost.
I don't get the name. It doesn't have anything to do with the way it looks on my skin. Ever since Estee Lauder discontinued Impeccable I've been looking for something. This is probably my 10th foundation and it is definitely not it! I like something that makes your skin look flawless but this is too mask-y. I'm surprised it is so well reviewed.
Very good powder. Makes my skin look visibly smoother when I apply it, absorbs oil very well. FYI - the light color is very very light so even though I am pale, I will probably go buy the medium shade. The compact is kind of cheap looking but I'm really happy with the powder.
I have been asked what perfume I had on countless times since I started wearing this. It is fresh, light, fruity, rich, luscious. It is my new favorite and I have been looking for something new (I've always used Coriandre) for years and years. If you like fresh, green scents give this a try.
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

I have not used anything to take off makeup except vaseline or baby oil or soap and water my whole life, but after getting a sample of this, I am a convert. I keep reading that it is oily, but what is remarkable is that the oil seems to completely evaporate if you leave it on a few minutes. There is no need to rinse it off. I find this out one night after using this to remove all my makeup, not just eyemakeup. My skin had been so dry that I thought the oily nature of this product would help to moisturize it. Several minutes later I touched my skin, and the "oiliness" was gone, all gone. My skin was just soft. This stuff takes off anything - even all day liquid lip color - in one swipe. I am a true convert.
I don't use this as a foundation. Too heavy. But it is PERFECT as an undereye concealer. I use warm vanilla. The yellowish hue counteracts the bluish circles perfectly, better than any concealer I've ever tried (about 100 of them).
Looks bricky in the tube, but goes on more red/pink. I think it is a great slightly darker than natural color. Very smooth and lasts well. I also like the fact that a little goes on sheer but applying more makes it darker, so that you can control the pigmentation.
This is the only thing I've ever used to wash my face with that makes a visible difference. My skin is so much smoother after using this. They exfoliate perfectly. I turned my sister on to these and now she is addicted, too. I thought I was the only one that cut them in half!

My sister and I love these. They make my skin look smooth and polished after I use them and they provide the perfect amount of exfoliation. I really like them.
For my hair type (thin, fine, curly) this stuff was awesome. It is vital that you do not use too much - a little dab'll do ya', like they say - too much makes your hair gunky, a dime size dab made me look like I had twice the hair and twice the curls.
