Great cream so far, Ive only been using this cream for 2 days and I will update once I've used it for more then a week. UPDATE: I've been using this cream for several weeks and it's ok nothing really special, I'm not sure if this contains any of the "essential nutrients the other Dove cream has" This hasn't broken me out and has 0 scent to it.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Body Butter - Brazil Nut

This is by far the most hydrating cream I've come across, I like Nut the best out of all the butters it's not as thick as cocoa which seems to take forever to apply. Nut has a subtle foody scent which smells great and my SO loves! I find this sinks in well and makes your skin shine, if you don't like feeling buttered up then you might not like this cream, it's not greasy but you definitely feel well...buttered up : )
Moisturizers -Dove - Essential Nutrients - Night Cream

An all around great cream, makes your skin so glowy without an overpowering scent. Beware of the day cream because it contains an ingredient that causes breakouts.
Moisturizers -Dove - Essential Nutrients Day Creme SPF 15
MacQueen 3/4/2004 11:47:00 AM
I read great reviews about this cream in last months Allure, all about the nutrients, lipids, cholesterol etc, etc. So I ran out and bought the day cream and the night cream ( which are basically the exact same cream except the night cream does not contain sunscreen ) I applied it and it felt beautiful, just creamy enough + the scent was light and not to overpowering, and to my amazement it plumped my skin up right away. I continued using it for a week with the most beautiful results, my face glowed and my skintone color was even. First before I drop the BAD news let me tell you a bit about my skin, first of all it's dry, not super dry but pretty dry, I'm always in search of a HG cream that's not going to kill my wallet. Also I very rarely break out, OK once in awhile but only ever during that time of the month, and when I do it's usually just one small pimple that I can squeeze and that's the end of that ( I know that's gross )Well like I mentioned I was using both creams for a week when I woke up one morning and to my shock and utter HORROR I had 3 large cystic pimples staring me in the face! This was the first time in my life I have ever had such deep painful pimples, of course I stopped using the creams immediately and went back to my usual cream. Well that wasn't the end of it...I ended up with a dozen, yes a dozen cystic pimples. I literally cried, thank god for Mac concealor+foundations I wouldn't of gone out if not for cover-up. I know there may be skeptics out there who say "It could of been something you ate or an allergic reaction " or maybe it wasn't the cream, well it was the cream because I waited a month and I tried the cream again ( I know what your thinking I'm either really brave or really stupid LOL ) Well I really liked these creams before they broke me out so badly that I wanted them to work, but only after 4-5 hours wearing the day cream a cystic pimple appeared on my chin, so needless to say this cream is going in the garbage! You know it's so weird because I can wear pretty much anything because I don't have sensitive skin and nivea didn't break me out considering that stuff is like glue.
A really, really thick cream which feels really greasy on ( and I have dry skin ) This cream doesn't feel like it soaks in at all, it just kind of sits on your skin. You can literally feel it clogging your pores. I have found one use for it, during the cold/flu season when you've contracted a nasty cold and you're constantly wiping your nose making it dry, scaly and sore, apply a dullop of this and it will moisturize without burning.
Moisturizers -Kiss My Face - Peaches and Creme moisturizer with AHA
MacQueen 3/4/2004 11:18:00 AM
I adore KMF products, natural ingredients, against animal testing, great quality for your money. This is a wonderfulsmelling lotion, it really does smell like fresh peaches and it also contains 4% AHA to slough off dead skin and clear blocked pores. I recommend using this just for your face moisturizer as opposed to a body lotion I have dry skin and really need a heavier moisturizer like TBS body butters especially during the winter months.
An OK product, not as hydrating as I would of liked although it does make your hair feel very soft, the smell is nothing to write home about, kind of medicinal. I haven't been using this product very long so I will update it again in a bit : )
Shampoo -Jason Natural Cosmetics - Natural Apricot Shampoo - Super Shine
MacQueen 3/3/2004 5:02:00 PM
This is a fabulous shampoo! It leaves your hair shiny and smooth and smelling great. This has UV protection and is fortified with 22 amino acids and planthenol-3, it's also SLS free which is a big plus in my books, it feels really sticky and syrupy and doesn't lather much but the benefits are worth it : )
Conditioner -Sexy Hair Concepts - healthy sexy hair soy milk conditioner
MacQueen 3/3/2004 4:50:00 PM
A very nice conditioner, I have thick course waist length hair and this conditioner makes my hair smooth and shiny, my only complaints are that it could be a touch more moisterizing and my SO mentioned that my hair smelled like I was a dairy maid ( that can't be a good thing LOL! )
Eyeliner -MAC - Powerpoint Eyeliner - Bordeauxline
MacQueen 3/1/2004 5:03:00 PM
A nice deep plum color with great staying power, I really adore Mac's powerpoints! I prefer permaplum over this liner but if your looking for something less grape purple and more wine colored also minus the shimmer then this is the eyeliner for you : )
A sexy nude light taupe super frosty color the Mac site describes it as a minimal pink with shimmer it's super gorgeous and was really the only shadow that caught my eye with the Hypnotique collection. UPDATE: If you already own Jest then IMO you really don't need this e/s too they are much to similar, and jest tends to show up better.
OOOOh I ¢¾ ¢¾ ¢¾ this gloss! It smells & tastes like fresh raspberries plus it leaves the sexiest berry stained lips! It's great for your lips keeping them hydrated and protected from the elements, I will definitly be repurchasing more of these!
This is a great nude lippie but I have to stress the fact that before applying you should scrub lips well to remove any dead skin, this lipglass is milky and if your lips are peeling it will collect in the creases Yuck!
I ♥ this lippie it's perfect for that nude lip look, it has the slightest subtle shimmer which plumps your lips up : ) It looks dark in the tube but one applied it's perfect, Blonde warm/neutral PPP here.
