Lotions/ Creams -Trish McEvoy - #9 Blackberry and Vanilla Musk Lotion

Love the scent (which does not linger on me), but even though it feels creamy as you put it on, it didn't leave my skin feeling well nourished and soft like other creams. I wouldn't buy it again.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush

I love the Clarisonic -- I used to have flaky patches on my skin year round, no matter what I tried. I use the Clarisonic twice a week and have no more flakes. I get compliments on my skin all the time -- between using Bare Minerals and the Clarisonic, I think my skin looks ten years younger.
Cleansers -Estee Lauder - Soft Clean Moisture Rich Foaming Cleanser
Smoke 11/11/2008 12:50:00 PM
Despite the rich sounding name, I found this cleanser really left my combination skin feeling dry. I don't care for the toothpaste like texture of it (not grainy, just thick), either. I would definitely not repurchase.
This is a nice coral color -- but strangely enough, at least to my eye, it is exactly the same as another OPI color, Head 'Em Up And Mauve 'Em Out. Seems weird, coral and mauve being the same, but my spa manicure chipped and I did that nail with HEUAMEO and it looks just the same as the others, which are still LCC.
I got a blue one as a GWP throw in. I wasn't sure what it was at first, but after googling it, I put it on my eye. I didn't get the discoloration some folks have reported, but it was useless. A novelty item that wears off immediately.
Just tried this in a sample size and it clumped so badly I had to wash it off. A definite no for me. I'm so glad I didn't buy it.
Powder -Trish McEvoy - Mineral Powder Foundation ALL
Smoke 9/19/2006 8:32:00 AM
I bought Bare and I like the product, although I find the coverage very light. It's quite silky feeling. I need to use other products with it to get the coverage I want. The problem is the packaging. I bought it from Neiman Marcus, which showed it in a compact on the website -- it arrived with no compact. I don't use any other Trish McEvoy products, so the container was useless. I complained to Neiman Marcus, which has yet to respond except to say they would call the vendor.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Tiramisu Veneziano
Smoke 1/21/2006 2:52:00 PM
It smells like coffee to me, and having coffee breath isn't something I strive for. I also am not keen on the squirt type container of lip gloss. On the other hand, it's very moisturizing and feels good on.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Tutti Dolci - Apple Torta
Smoke 1/21/2006 2:50:00 PM
I got it for #2.50, too. I like it once it's on my lips, although I do find it a bit sticky, but I hate those squirt out lip gloss containers. I don't really detect much color at all, just shine.
I love both the retro sliding top tin and the product. The balm is easy to use, doesn't feel waxy, smells nice, and moisturizes like crazy. Excellent product! I bought it at relaxdepot.com.
Treatments -The Body Shop - Vitamin C Night Repair [DISCONTINUED]
Smoke 4/24/2005 5:53:00 PM
I use this for one purpose -- to get rid of flaky patches on my cheeks. It is the only product I have that does it and it does it perfectly.
Very ordinary cleanser, not worth the price.
Cleansers -Clearasil - Total Control Foaming Cleansing Cloths
Smoke 3/22/2004 8:31:00 AM
I love these cloths. I've used Oil of Olay (made my face itch) and Dove (ok), but these make my face feel cleaner (but not tight) and I'd swear it looks clearer since I started using them. I use them at night, DHC oil in the a.m. and will definitely buy more.
I love the Jane Iredale pressed base, but the liquid minerals, although they look cool, do nothing for my skin. Coverage is lousy, color is not flattering (I got Warm Silk, same as in the pressed powder, but it comes out kind of yellow), and I don't like the way it feels.
This honey lip gloss goes on a little like Vaseline -- no color, greasy feeling, and unlike one of the other reviewers, I notice a definite musty scent. It doesn't irritate my lips, but it doesn't do anything for me either.
