Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Andrew Lessman Sole Sunscreen Moisturizer

This is the most amazing sunscreen ever. I have fair skin and I work outside at camp all summer long taking care of the five year old boys, so I don't have time to reapply my own sunscreen all the time. I love this sunscreen. I use it on my face and my body because there is not real difference in ingredients in the face version and it is cheaper. It is light and sinks into skin quickly without leaving a white residue. It has zinc oxide so it provides excellent protection. And the most amazing thing is that I have hyper sensitive eyes, almost every hair and skincare product irritates them and makes my upper eyelids swell, but this sunscreen does not. I ordered it because it is opthamologist tested, and it really works!!!!! I love Andrew's products, and I respect how knowledgeable and dedicated he is to health care.
I got this from QVC and it was a great deal because it came with an angled face brush and was full size for about $23. It is the only mineral makeup blush I've ever liked because it is sheer enough to look natural when on and is easy to apply. For some reason I can never apply other MMU blushes well and they always look to heavy and bright. This one gives a nice rosy pink flush to the cheeks and is a perfect color.
Conditioner -Giovanni - triple treat tea tree conditioner

This and the conditioner have been a godsend for me. I have an eye problem and allergies to haircare and skincare make it much worse. For some reason when I use these products I don't have an eye problem anymore!!!

I use the liquid version and water it down a lot, I mean A LOT. I fill a bottle about 1/8 with the liquid soap and fill the rest up with water. When I pour it out it looks like water but still foams. It seems to be helping my clogged pores and breakouts and does not irritate my ridiculously sensitive eyes. Plus, since it's watered down so much a bottle will last forever. I have had great success using this with acv toner, aspirin mask and homemade vitamin c serum.

I got a small tube of this to try off of ebay because of all the rave reviews. I kinda didn't want to like love it because of the cost to ship to the USA, but unfortunately I love it. It is the only cleanser I've tried that actually HELPED with my overly sensive puffy allergy eye problem. I wish shipping to america didn't cost a small fortune. I'm hoping that USA QVC will start selling it.

This is so great. I use the shade called clean, which is YLBB on me. I use this everyday at camp and I love that it provides a little bit of nice glossy color AND wonderful sunscreen protection for lips. Great stuff.
I got this to use at camp for touch ups during the long hot sunny days I have to endure. Each item contains spf30, which is great and the textures and colors are perfect.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style Surf Hair

This product has done the impossible, help me control my puffy bangs. Plus it leaves hair matte and very soft, not greasy like a wax or crunchy like a gel. I like the citrus scent.
I really like this shampoo. It also helps (or doesn't irritate) my seb dermatitis. It makes my hair soft and shiny. It smells nice.
The smell doesn't bother me, I think it just smells natural. This makes my hair soft and shiny and doesn't weigh hair down. It also seems to help with my dermatitis.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar

Second, I'm so mad that I spent ridiculous amounts of money on skincare products, that were probably actually causing my clogged pore problem. Turns out everything I needed for clear skin was in my medicine cabinet and kitchen. I now use vaseline to cleanse and remove makeup and to moisturize, aspirin mask, the apple cider vinegar toner and a green tea and vitamin c serum every evening and my skin looks great. I use the ACV as a rinse for my hair after I've shampood. Twice a week I use retin-a micro. I have sensitive eyes and suffer from allergic conjuctivitis but these products do not irritate it. Now I can spend my money on good food and nice clothes, and feel better about myself.
First of all, in response to the post below I find it extremely hard to believe that using aspirin on your face once would give you an ulcer.

Blush -Scott Barnes - Chic Palette in Samba [DISCONTINUED]

This palette is to die for. It's gorgeous. I wanted to try it because of all the great reviews here, I got it on sale at QVC. I almost didn't want to like it so that I could justify sending it back because of the cost, but it's to pretty to return. This is what peachy pink blushes should look like. This gives you a Mandy Moore cheeks look.
Fab-u-lous!!! No itchy scalp or eyes. Made my hair shiny and easy to style.
