This product was on sale at Target, so I thought that I would give it a try. This mascara not only clumps easily but leaves dark circles under my eyes in like 2 hours. Let's just say that I only used it a few times and it is now sitting in my drawer with a bunch of other stuff that I probably will not be using again. Sigh...
I saw so many ads, commericals and reviews about this product and just couldn't resist in getting one even though it was so expensive. I have been searching for a good eye cream that will help to reduce the appearance of my fine lines and dark circles. All the "Anti" words on their site really blew me away. I thought that I finally found a treatment for my eyes. However, there was no change in my appearance after I finished the whole bottle. I was so disappointed and mad that I had to spend over $100 to find out that this product did NOT WORK! =( So now I'm STILL searching for a good eye cream.
Scrubs -Fresh - Sugar Face Polish with Strawberries
Nikki166 4/28/2009 3:15:00 AM
I got this product as a gift and was really excited to try it. I love the smell but personally think the scrub is too harsh for my acne prone skin. It makes my skin all red after use but does leave a moisturizing feeling after I use it but I think it is probably better as a body exfoliator. I still love my Marie Louise exfoliating gel from Japan which is super gentle but removes all my dead skin cells without drying up my skin. It was great that I didn't have to pay for this product.
The NC 20 is a perfect match for my skin tone and covers my redness and blemishes really well. I really like it a lot for this function! However the downside of this product is that it doesn't cover my dark circles really well. I'm still looking for a good eye concealer. Also you need to reapply after a few hours. However because of the perfect color match, I always buy another tube when I run out.
I used this more as a 2nd step to my skincare regimen where I put the toner on a cotton pad to wipe away any remaining dirt or makeup. It does a great job of doing that. However, it usually leaves my skin very dry afterwards, so I will follow up with another toner and moisturizer.
Sunscreen -Aveeno - Continuous Protection Sunblock Lotion Face SPF 70

I really like this product and really surprised to find the low ratings it got from the other reviewers. It is definitely non-greasy and oil free. I tend to break out from sunscreen with a high SPF but this sunscreen with a high SPF of 70 left my skin oil free. I also love how it actually evens out my skin tone. I wonder if it's because I tend to get red a lot. I'm already on my second tube and still loving it!
This is my favorite lip balm! I can't live without it. I have been putting vaseline on my lips every night before going to bed for like the last 15 years. The price is so reasonable too!
This product is great for one of those days when your skin feels dehydrated and dry. I usually put it on at night before I go to sleep and massage it into my face and neck for about a minute. Then I would use a tissue to blot out all the excess oil. I love the rose fragrance and thinks that it helps me sleep better at night. =) The next morning my skin looks radiant and hydrated like it promised. The plus side is that it doesn't give me breakouts either.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

I can't live without this product! I love the texture of the oil absorbing sheets. It is so much better than the traditional paper material. I carry a pack on me at all times and I feel like I break out less because of it.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Marie Louise - Creme a-VC
Nikki166 2/4/2009 11:14:00 AM
This Crème is great for the winter time because my skin becomes very dry and flaky. I apply this at night before I go to sleep and I can instantly FEEL the hydration and the best part is that when I get up in the morning, my face is not oily or greasy from the Creme but nicely moisturized. I break out very easily and this product doesn't give me any break outs at all!!! I also noticed that after using it for about a month, my skin tone has improved a lot.
Treatments -Pantene - Smooth n Silky Leave On Hair Moisturizer
Nikki166 2/2/2009 11:58:00 AM
This product is such a bargain for its price. I got a bad perm last year and my hair was completely damaged. I tried so many expensive conditioners, hair masks, hair serums, and leave in treatments. Nothing worked that well for me except this product. All I have to do is put some in my hair before I blow dry my hair and it will become smooth and not frizzy. I definitely would recommend this product to everyone I know.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express Turbo Boost Waterproof
Nikki166 2/2/2009 11:47:00 AM
I tried most of the Maybelline mascaras and this is definitely one of my favorite ones! It not only curls but adds volume to my eye lashes. Since my eyes are smaller, so it really makes my eyes look bigger. You have to try it yourself in order to see the effects. =)
After reading about this product in Lucky, I was so excited and ran out to buy it. Since it was quite expensive, so I was expecting it to do wonders for my skin or at least improve my acne prone skin like it promoised. However, the grain was not that fine and actually quite rough on my skin. It felt very uncomfortable and my face became all irritated and dry after using this product. The only thing I liked about it was it's smell. I can't believe that I wasted seventy some dollars!
