Polishes -Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure-Raisin the Bar

This has been my go-to color since I bought it about a month ago now. I love the color, a dust metallic rose, as it really does go with pretty much everything. It's modest enough to be worn at the office, but definitely holds its own dressed up or down after work. I have a pink undertone to my very fair (and freckled) skin, and the rose compliments it perfectly. I usually spend ages on my nails, making sure that all 4 coats (base, two color, and top) are streak free. With this nailpolish, the process goes so much more quickly, which makes me much more willing to re-apply regularly. The flat brush makes application fast and easy. It only requires two coats -- I don't need to use a base or top coat with it -- and it is pretty much flawless for at least a week, unless I do something to damage it.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Crystal Roll-On Body Deodorant

Crystal essense deodorant roll-on, chamomile and green tea 2.5 fl oz I have always used clinical strength deodorants in the past, as I am really self conscious about body odor. My standby deodorant was Dove Clinical, which was working fine for me, but I hated the high amount of chemicals that I was slathering on my skin every day. After reading reviews on tons of different products, I finally decided to try Crystal essense with Chamomile and green tea, because the reviews were mostly positive and because it is insanely cheap (on amazon) in comparison to the others I was considering. I have been using it for about 3 weeks now, I am loving it! The smell is fresh and light, so it does not interfere with the scent of perfume or lotions. It dries completely clear and without *any* residue, which means that you can pull on a black sweater hastily without getting the dreaded "white lines" all over it. As with any natural deodorant, it's not an antipersperant, so I do notice that I sweat more now than when I used a combination deoderant/antipersperant; however, it's honestly not that much more. Most of the time I am pretty dry, and I live in the high desert of California. And, even when I do sweat, it's totally odorless! It does take a little while to dry, and it is way more effective if it dries completely before putting clothes over it. When I do have to rush and throw clothes on right after putting on the deodorant, it is still pretty effective, and I haven't noticed any sort of staining on my clothes from it. Provided that I apply it properly and let it dry completely, this deodorant keeps me fresh all day! I may need to re-apply in the evening, especially If I'm going to be hitting the gym after work; however, this deodorant has completely exceeded my expectations! If it continues to work the way it has been, I would totally buy it again.
