Lip Treatments -Blistex - Moisture Melt Lip Protectant
LoveForever 2/15/2013 1:55:00 AM
This product has become one of my holy grail staples in the short time it has been on the shelves. Released in late 2012/early 2013, I picked this up right away. It feels amazing on my lips and immediately heals my chapped, dry lips within a day or two! It feels a little bit like Vaseline at first, but then melts into a nice balm/gloss. It also has a nice scent/flavor - not bland or gross like a lot of "boring" unflavored lip treatments do. The moisture repair beads inside don't feel weird like I thought they would either, they melt right away on my lips press them together. Amazing stuff and I would highly recommend to anyone needing moisture therapy, healing for dry lips, or just a nice balm gloss!
I was so excited to receive this product in a swap! I had been wanting it for months based on pictures I saw online and reviews I read both on MUA and on other websites. I couldn't wait to get it! When I received it the other day, I tried it on right away. It was AWFUL on my fair skin tone! It's funny because a lot of the reviews I've read said it looked great on others who have fair skin, but not me. It was way too dark and way too rosy and mauve for me. It just didn't look...right. I was also not overly impressed with the consistency of the lipstick. It was a bit too cake-y for my liking. I am used to creme and moisturizing lipsticks. This was a bit dry and I felt I needed to put a gloss or some moisturizing salve on over top of it in order to wear it (had it been my color). Would not have been a comfortable lipstick for me to wear alone. Overall, I would not recommend this lipstick but I would definitely be open to trying other shades of NYX lipsticks.
This blush did amazing things for my fair, Irish complexion! It really made my cheeks pop, but not TOO much! Since it has been discontinued in the United States, it's hard for me to find, but I would recommend it for anyone with a fair to medium complexion! It goes on sheer, but it has a nice rosy mauve pink sheen to it and it's just the perfect color for fair complexions!! A wonderful product that lasts all day! Definitely one of my STAPLE blushes. My only complaint is the packaging. The top seemed to come off quite easily. It could have been put together/secured a little better than it was. Of course, being in a cosmetic bag all the time wasn't good for it. :) It's not the most durable packaging but it's not the worst I've seen either.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Active Naturals Eczema Care Moisturizing Cream
LoveForever 10/20/2011 1:52:00 AM
This is the only over-the-counter eczema cream/lotion that actually eased my slight eczema problem. I was actually able to completely clear up my eczema problem with this product. It really stopped the dryness and itching that went along with my eczema symptoms. Definitely recommended! I highly recommend this product for OTC eczema treatment (obviously, consult a physician for eczema care!).
This product was a big help for me, as an eczema sufferer! It really helped with my dry skin problem. It was gentle enough on my sensitive skin, yet strong enough to heal my eczema while using this product! A wonderful buy!
A cult favorite! Always keeps my lips from chapping in the winter! A great flavor! A great scent! All around softness! An original! Everything about this product is wonderful! I ALWAYS have one on me. I am a lip balm addict and Chapstick is a definite favorite.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Lime 3 in 1 (Let Go, Let Love)

One of my absolute favorite scents by Philosophy! An energizing lime scent that wakes you up in the morning! It doesn't fade with time, either! Great for shampoo, bubble bath and body wash! An excellent product!
Blush -Physicians Formula - Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in rose
LoveForever 10/20/2011 1:44:00 AM
A great color for a fair complexion! Looks dark in pan, but goes on sheer! Can actually be adjusted to go on light or dark, depending on preference! Just add as little or as much color as you want! It's a beautiful pinkish mauve color when applied to cheeks. I am fair-skinned with dark brown hair and it's beautiful on my complexion, in both my opinion and others'! I really like it and I am stockpiling now in case it's discontinued - as most products I fall in love with usually are not long after their release!
This has been my absolute favorite concealer for years almost 10 years now! I use the 'Creamy Natural' and it matches my skin tone perfectly. Many people don't even notice I am wearing makeup. It also stays put all day! I never have to re-apply. It doesn't go on cake-y and it doesn't streak. It's satiny smooth and it actually looks natural! A wonderful drugstore cosmetic! I love it and I wouldn't switch products unless I actually had to because it was discontinued. I have been stockpiling for the past few months in case this product goes away.
