Treatments -TiGi - Treat Me Right (Peppermint Hair Mask)
WinnieW 4/17/2007 8:57:00 AM
I love TiGi BedHead's haircare line, but this mask was no bueno. It doesn't moisturize at all. It's minty on scalp, which gives it a nice tingly feeling, but as far as I can tell, it doesn't really do anything for my hair other than that, I'm sorry to say. Save your money on this one.
Moisturizers -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Moisture Cream
WinnieW 11/4/2005 5:51:00 PM
I love the Vitamin E line from The Body Shop! This feels nice and cool on, and is very gentle and moisturizing for my dry and sensitive skin. I love the smell as well! I picked these up when TBS had a sale, for $1 each, but I'd gladly paid full price for them.
I love the texture and the feel of this product, it feels nice on. Not too creamy, not too light. I'm just not sure if it does anything for my eye area. Get a sample first if you can before you buy.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa Mocha My Day
WinnieW 11/4/2005 5:43:00 PM
LOL @ Margaret D's comment, but it's not too far from mine. This stuff *is* bad! It smells so good when you first open it, but that's where you stop ooh-ing and aah-ing about it. It's so runny that it cannot function as a scrub AT ALL. Even though I paid $3 for it, I think I paid $2.99 too much for it. This is of no use to me. So glad I did not hoard this one! (Not that I could, anyway.)
Lip Gloss -Christian Dior - DiorKiss "Lychee Rose 488"
WinnieW 11/4/2005 5:39:00 PM
I love this gloss! I love the shininess, the taste and the smell! The color is awesome as well. I bought this as a set from Sephora (link included below). For $39, this is what is included: Products include a Dior Kiss Gloss in Lychee Rose 488 (shimmering rosy-pink), Skinflash Radiance Pen (amazing concealer/brightener), plus a trial-sized Age-Defense Refining Eye Serum (to smooth and refine the delicate eye area). I think I like the lipgloss the most, even more than the Skinflash Radiance Pen! http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P98608&shouldPaginate=true&categoryId=1073
I wear this on my cheeks as blush and also to highlight my cheekbones a bit. I love it. I just got STOPPED in the bathroom coz someone just NEEDED to know what I have on my cheeks, lol. It's not too pink and is perfect for that slight flush/healthy look.
Treatments -Bath and Body Works - Wheat Germ Almond Reconstructor

Honestly, I don't think this mask did anything for my hair. I have fine hair that's not too dry, so only use a hair mask occasionally. I could not tell any effect this has on my hair.
This is an okay product. I'm not too impressed by the smell or its effectiveness. It's a very mild scrub, so I use this in lieu of a shower gel. The smell is so faint that I can't really smell anything. I bought this on sale for $3, but I doubt that I'll try mark bath products again. :(
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - Need a Margarita? Citrus Body Scrub
WinnieW 6/7/2005 9:01:00 PM
This smells sooo delicious! To my nose this smells like citrus-y 7up. I can smell it on me hours after I shower, which is nice and unexpected. It's mostly a sugar scrub. Not harsh like a salt scrub. One sniff of this and I guarantee you that you will be hooked on this. :)
Treatments -L'Oreal - ReNoviste Anti-Aging Glycolic Peel Kit
WinnieW 5/11/2005 5:20:00 PM
I have never done a chemical peel before, so I don't know what to expect from an OTC one. That said, I am majorly pleased with the outcome of what I have seen. So far I have used this kit twice. The first time I left this on for four minutes, and have noticed no difference whatsoever. Months later, I used this again, and this time left it on for five minutes. I felt the burning and stinging sensation this time around, and continued to be so for the next 7 days. However, after the 7 days, my skin was positively glowing. It softens my slight wrinkles a bit and generally just cleared and refined my skin tone a bit. I can see the results and this is better than what I had expected. I paid $20 at Target for this when it was on sale, and I definitely would recommend this. If you are looking into buying this, do some research. I hear that Avon makes are very good one as well, and when I finish this, I will probably try that one. I don't know when I'll finish this though; the instruction says that this is best used every other month. Since there's 8 applications in each kit, this will take 16 months to finish up?
Skincare - Face -The Body Shop - Soy and Calendula supplement Dry/Sensitive Skin
WinnieW 12/30/2004 9:17:00 PM
I love this item! I bought this for a measly $3 during their annual sale. I put this underneath my moisturizer and I can really feel the difference. It makes my skin much more hydrated and softer. I have dry, sensitive skin and if you have skin like me, I think this will be great. My sister has combination skin that's brekaout prone and she loves this stuff as well. I believe she's hoarded ten bottles already and is planning to hoard more, LOL. It's not just a good product for the price. It's a great product, period.
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Goat's Milk and Honey in White Cake
WinnieW 12/30/2004 8:47:00 PM
I love this scent! On me this a nice somewhat thick lotion, with the perfect combination of vanilla cake, almond and cinnamon. I didn't think I'd like this scent coz I'm not normally a foody scent kinda gal but this smells so delicious. YUM!!
I love this scent. This is a perfect clean scent for those of us who want to smell good but not overdo it. People can only smell this off me when I lean in, and only then do they catch a whiff of it. I like that. Sexy in a very subtle way.
Sunscreen -La Roche Posay - Anthelios XL SPF 60 Fluide Extreme
WinnieW 12/29/2004 2:00:00 AM
I love this! This is a very good sunscreen and offers very good protection. It does not leave a white tint (unlike the other PTR or Shiseido suncreen that I've tried) and is so easy to spread. Great for wearing under makeup. I sent my sister a tube of this and she loves it as well, and is the only sunscreen that does not break her out. Holy Grail for sure!
I love this! This has a light peony scent and is very moisturizing and so easy to spread on. I'd buy this again!
