Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
Sweetangelgirl 9/25/2006 10:14:00 PM
I like this cuticle cream. (Although I must admit I don't use it as much as I could. I generally just use Smith's rosebud salve. It works great on ragged cuticles!) I like this as an alternative though. I like the lemon scent,but it can smell a little pine-sol ish. It is good on lips too. I love the natural ingredients like sweet almond oil,beeswax,lemon oil, vitamin E,cocoa butter and rosemary extract.
This is the best tm I have ever tried. It gives a lot more coverage then other tinted moisturizers that I have tried. The nude color matched my skin perfectly. I thought that it might make me break out since it can feel a little heavy,but I didn't break out at all. I really like this and the price is so cheap!
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure

I bought jojoba oil after I read an article saying how good it is as a beauty product. It is supposed to be the closest thing to our skin's natural oils. I like how it moisterizes with out making my skin break out. I love to use it in my hair. A few drops smoothed on the ends really makes it shine and look healthy.
My friend Michelle gave me a jar of this product as a gift. She sells Arbonne products and she is always giving me jars of stuff or samples. This is one of my favorite products from this line. I love the scent and it makes your skin feel so smooth and soft.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Coconut Body Butter

This is my favorite body butter. It is very moisterizing and the scent is great. I do find that the scent is a little strong if I apply it all over my body(however I am sensitive to perfumes) so I just put it on dry spots(elbows, knees etc.) I also put it on my feet before I put on socks and I wake up with super soft feet in the morning. It gives skin a wonderful glow.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Hemp Hand Protector

This is my least favorite of all the Body Shop products that i have tried. Don't get me wrong it does work well. It leaves my hands feeling very soft and smooth. It is just not for me. I hate the strong scent! I feel like I am putting men's cologne on every time I use it!
Lip Gloss -L'Occitane - Tinted lipbalm in "Blackberry"
Sweetangelgirl 9/22/2005 10:29:00 PM
This is my favorite of the tinted balms. To tell you the truth I bought it because once(a long time ago) I bought a wonderful,fabulous perfume from L'Occitane called Blackberry leaves. I loved that stuff!!! Of course they discontinued it. :( Oh,well. Anyway,I went to a L'Occitane store and asked about the Blackberry perfume and they said that at that time the only product they had scented with Blackberries was this gloss so I bought it and I really like it. It looks slightly scary in the tin. Very dark,but when you put it on it looks very natural. I put a little on as a stain and top it with gloss. I also dab some on my cheeks for a healthy flush.
I really like Weleda products especially their range of baby products and their rose lip balm. I like that they use natural ingredients that are soothing to the skin. The Calundula lotion works wonderfully and it smells great. Very affordable price too.
I like this eyeshadow even though it is a little too glittery for me. I got this and a bunch of other Urban Decay make-up on a huge sale when I was on vacation in Utah. I like the natural looking color and even though I am not totally thrilled with the glitter it seems to brighten up my eyes.
I am addicted to lip glosses and I adore Juicy tubes. :) They are a little thick/sticky,but they last for quite awhile and they make lips look great. My favorite is Baby doll. It has a light pink color and a delicious cake batter flavor. I also dab a little on my cheeks and brow bone for a healthy glow.
I like that this is cheap and fairly easy to find in stores. I use it both as an all over face mask and as an overnight treatment on top of a pimple. I like the scent and the texture. It also washes off easily. Good mask for the price. Works well.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar
Sweetangelgirl 9/21/2005 8:50:00 PM
Great stuff. Great price. I am not thrilled with the strong scent and it makes my eyes burn a little sometimes it is so powerful,but it is totally worth it. It makes my skin look amazing. I have only tried it dilluted w/ water,but I am going to try dilluting it w/ green tea or chamomile tea to see if that works well too. I used to spend tons of money on expensive toners,but this works better for practically nothing. I trade off between this and the asprin toner (which I also adore) I highly recommend both toners to everyone. People tell me I have beautiful skin and ask me what I do to it. They are always shocked when I tell them about this toner and the asprin toner. I am so happy I found out about this toner!
Toners -Kiehls - Rosewater facial freshening toner
Sweetangelgirl 4/7/2005 10:40:00 PM
I love the rose petals floating in the bottle. They are an adorable touch to a good toner. I didn't find this to be harsh or irritating. That is a big plus for me since my skin reacts to some products. I am not totally convinced that it is worth the price,but I am still impressed. It leaves my skin feeling clean yet soft.
Fabulous mascara! I love this stuff. It works great and it is so cheap! What is not to like?! It makes sense to buy a cheaper mascara since you need to throw them away often.
This is a wonderful self tanner. It gives a very natural,healthy tan. I adore the shimmer! It does have a bit of a smell,but it smells much better than any other tanner that I have tried. I am very pale and I have always had trouble finding self tanners that would actually work well for me. Some would work ok(they would turn me brown),but they would turn me too brown. It didn't look natural at all,and it was very easy to make a mistake applying it. I never have a problem applying this. It blends into the skin well and is very moisterizing. If you apply it at night you will wake up with a healthy glow. This never looks orangey. All around this is a very good product. I love the price too! :)
