Lotions/ Creams -Bodycology - Lotion/Cream in Cherry Blossom
Cinnamoroll 10/1/2010 3:52:00 AM
~Bodycology Hand & Body Lotion in Cherry Blossom~ I have to admit, I immediately thought of BBW's Japanese Cherry Blossom when I saw this product. It is nothing like it. It has a light, powdery scent with subtle floral notes. The scent is pleasant but it reminds me of a fragrance meant for more mature women. Although this product is quickly absorbed into the skin without any greasy residue, I did not find it to be very moisturizing. Since I received this product as a sample, I cannot comment on the price or packaging. I will most likely not be purchasing this product.
Lotions/ Creams -La Prairie - La Prairie - Cellular Hand Cream
Cinnamoroll 7/31/2004 6:21:00 AM
~Cellular Hand Cream~ This is my favorite hand cream. It leaves my hands feeling very soft, smooth, and moisturized. It absorbs quickly into my skin and is not greasy at all. It has a nice, light scent. It does everything that I expected it to do. Being age 25, I didn't expect that this would also improve the appearance of my hands, but this definitely does make my hands look noticeably better.
~Eyebrow Pencil V2001~ This is my favorite eyebrow pencil. In comparison to most eyebrow pencils, the texture of this pencil is harder and not as waxy. This color matches well with my eyebrows and gives them a defined but very natural look that lasts all day.
Lips -Biotherm - Aquasource Lèvres Moisutrizing Balm Protective Lip Care
Cinnamoroll 7/31/2004 5:33:00 AM
~Aquasource Levres~ This is my favorite lip balm. The peach scent is wonderful. It has a thick, waxy texture that makes my lips feel very smooth, not sticky. It has great shine for a lip balm.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets
Cinnamoroll 7/28/2004 4:32:00 AM
~Oil Absorbing Sheets~ These are inexpensive and they do a great job removing all oil and leaving my face shine-free. These are especially useful when I’m wearing make-up because it takes away the shine yet leaves my make-up undisturbed. I purchased these for $3.99.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Baby Daily Moisture Lotion
Cinnamoroll 7/28/2004 4:12:00 AM
~Baby Daily Moisture Lotion~ This does a great job of leaving my skin smooth and moisturized all day long and is rather inexpensive. I purchased this on sale (3 for $10). It feels very light when I put it on and absorbs quickly. It does not leave my skin feeling greasy at all.
Eyeliner -Laura Mercier - Purple Sapphire Eye Kohl Pencil
Cinnamoroll 7/28/2004 3:53:00 AM
~Kohl Eye Pencil in Purple Sapphire~ This pencil glides on very smoothly and easily. This color matches well with my brown eyes.
~La Creme Luxueuse~ This leaves my skin feeling smooth and pampered. It has a nice light and sweet scent. It absorbs quickly into my skin and does not feel greasy at all. Although it is rather expensive, you get a lot of product for your money and a little goes a long way.
Lotions/ Creams -Victoria's Secret - Body By Victoria Intensive Body Hydrator
Cinnamoroll 7/24/2004 8:23:00 AM
~Body by Victoria Richly Deserved Intensive Body Hydrator~ This leaves my skin feeling very smooth, silky, and hydrated. It has a nice, fresh, clean scent that is light but lasts throughout the day. It absorbs fairly quickly into my skin and does not feel heavy or greasy at all.
Lip Gloss -Victoria's Secret - Sweet Talk Mouth Watering Lip Gloss
Cinnamoroll 7/24/2004 6:47:00 AM
~Sweet Talk Mouth-Watering Lip Gloss~ Although these are very thick and sticky, they leave a great, glossy shine. Since these were on sale (2 for $7), I purchased every flavor except blueberry. These also smell wonderful and have great staying power. The flavors have little to no taste, which is fine by me since I bought them more for how they look than how they taste.
Shampoo -Pantene - Smooth and Sleek Shampoo/Conditioner
Cinnamoroll 7/24/2004 6:18:00 AM
~Smooth and Sleek Shampoo and Conditioner~ Since these were on sale (3 for $9), I thought I'd give them a try. I used this shampoo and conditioner on a daily basis for about two months except once a week to clarify. Although this shampoo and conditioner creates a lot of build-up, which can easily be removed with a clarifying shampoo, I continued to use these because it did leave my hair smooth and sleek. I immediately stopped using these when I noticed my hair was starting to become dry. I definitely would not purchase this shampoo or conditioner again.
Cleansers -Olay - Clarifying Daily Facials for Combo/Oily Skin
Cinnamoroll 7/24/2004 5:52:00 AM
~Clarifying Daily Facials for Combination/Oily Skin~ These lather very well and easily remove all of my makeup. The textured side leaves my face squeaky clean while the other side leaves it soft and smooth. During the summer climates, I have moderately oily skin in my T-zone and I don't find that these help to combat my oiliness at all. On the plus side, I have not experienced any breakouts or dryness. I purchased these for $2.99 (with a coupon). I will continue to purchase these until I find something better.
Cleansers -Ponds - Exfoliating Cleansing Towelettes
Cinnamoroll 6/23/2004 4:15:00 AM
~Exfoliating Cleansing Towelettes~ An average towelette with a light cucumber scent. It easily removes all makeup -- including mascara --but I don't feel that the microbeads do anything extra in comparison to other towelettes. It does not dry out my skin but, as with many towelettes, it leaves a slightly sticky residue until it dries. Since I don't like this sticky feeling, I usually splash a little cold water on my face after each use to solve this problem. I will finish out the box but I don't intend to purchase this product again.
Cleansers -Olay - Daily Facials Intensives Lathering Pillows
Cinnamoroll 6/17/2004 5:06:00 PM
~Daily Facials Intensives Lathering Pillows~ I was attracted to these because they were disposable -- much more sanitary than using my same exfoliating sponge everyday. These seemed like the perfect product for me but I found them to be very hard to lather and, worst of all, the exfoliating side really hurt -- like little needles piercing my skin. I purchased these for $4.49. I definitely would not purchase this product again.
