I bought this because I really like Satin Lips by Mary Kay. I liked it alright. The scrub is actually pretty awesome, the cream is just a basic lotion IMO, and the over night cream STINKS. As soon as I put it on (I mean this literally) my boyfriend said it smelled like burnt hair...it is super thick and really does last even if you wash your hands, but PEE-EWW! I wouldn't repurchase simply because the smell is terrible and I don't need it that bad. I will use good 'ol sugar and olive oil until I can find a replacement!
Lip Treatments -Mary Kay - Satin Lips mask and balm

I love the Satin lips duo. I received it in my stocking when I was sixteen years old and haven't looked back since. I forget to use it for a while and end up with flaky lips, this takes those flakes right off. The balm is silky smooth which I love, but to be honest I prefer it in the old tub (kind of like the twist top Carmex tubs with the yellow top and white bottom.) and I believe the Nivea stick balm works just as well. I purchase this for myself to put in my stocking every year, but when funds are tight, I just buy the scrub and any balm. This will leave your lips silllkkky smooth, you don't even have to scrub it if you feel like being miss lazy bones. =) All in all KISSABLE!!!
I have the color stick in Pink Lemonade. I really like it as a cream blush, very pretty color. I am fair skinned with pinkish undertones already, so I have to add very little color. I dot this along my cheekbones and blend it in (it is pretty dry and a little hard to blend in, so I use a primer first. This helps a ton!) I have yet to try it for anything else, I don't wear pinkish eye shadows, but I do plan on trying the 'Spotlight' color as a base for my eye shadow. At a dollar a pop (at Target) this is a must have. It is tiny and not super bulky. Just rub a tiny amount of shimmer on your cheek bones, followed by a light swipe of this and BAM color for hours.

When your only complaint about something is that the package comes so stuffed full, it is dang near impossible to not spill... you have a WINNER! This is my HG face mask. I have black heads on my chin and nose pretty bad, when I run my finger across it my skin feels bumpy. Blah, I used this mask ONE TIME and now when I rub my chin it is smooth. I will update after I have used this product a while longer. I could feel it working (and by this I mean it tingled and itched like crazy haha) and had a little trouble getting it into a paste. I kept it on for the full half hour. After I washed it off ( I recommend doing this in the shower out of sheer convenience) my face was red, but once it calmed down (about twenty minutes) my skin tone was fabulous. TRY THIS. I bought a one pound tube for like seven bucks. Even if you don't like it you can give it to some one else to try. Or make little home made instruction labels, put it into tiny trial size jars and BAM stocking stuffer for your beauty savvy ladies. Sorry, I am suffering from holiday fever =))
This is an okay lip balm. It is very waxy, so while it is on it feels pretty nice. But I have to reapply it all the time. I like the cute tube and such, but i am just not a huge fan. With Nivea lip balms out there I don't see spending 3 bucks on a chap stick I will lose. I think this protects the lips pretty well since it is super waxy, but as far as repairing... I vote you keep on searching.

OUCH!! I have pretty sensitive skin (on my legs) and have tried EVERY razor known to man, lol. These are terrible. They rust super fast and even with an extremely light hand, terrible razor burn. Bummer, because I think the actual razor is kinda cute. Boo. No, double boo. These are just horrible.

I really like the pump bottle, so much better than dipping your hands in a jar! I feel like this helps save some of the product, and at 15 dollars a bottle, that is truly a positive. Maybe the only one. This lotion actually broke me out on my chin and nose areas. Eventually it also dried my skin out so much it started to peel. I stopped using this as of October 31, 2011. I will not purchase it again. I will just continue my search for a HG face moisturizer!
