Skincare - Body -Vaseline - Heathly Hand Essentials Lotion

I normally don't like Vaseline products, but this is the BEST medium weight hand lotion (for heavy moisturizing in winter I use L'Occitane shea butter hand cream). It is not greasy but super moisturizing. I haven't found anything better for a drugstore brand. And dirt cheap too!

I'm a cheapo when it comes to beauty products, but for this I make an exception. I buy one tube every winter for my hands, and it keeps the cracking at bay (I like in the midwest and it gets COLD). Extremely quick absorbing, not greasy, and lasts a long time, even through hand washing.

This did not make my skin greasy or slimy. But did not moisturize that well either. I would not purchase again.

I really was hoping this would work. I have cystic acne prone skin that is esp. oily on the nose. I used this faithfully for 3 weeks and had the purging and red skin that everyone was talking about. However, the purging did not stop! I kept on breaking out. I stopped using it like a week ago and still am getting new, deep, painful pimples, even in places I don't normally break out. I'm so sad, must keep looking for different peels.
I've been using this for years! Goof proof eyebrow pencil. Doesn't smudge, and the charcoal gray is perfect (I have black hair, but black pencils tend to look harsh).

Awesome awesome awesome. I have long hair and this is the only conditioner that keeps the knots out and makes it feel so smooth and not greasy. I've tried other drugstore and salon brands and nothing else compares. If you buy the large liter size (especially if you can find a sale, like at Ulta 3), it's not that much more expensive ounce per ounce compared to the drugstore brands.
The only lipstick that I've been using since it first came out! The smoothwear is the best! It truly stays on all day long and doesn't cause dryness, even without the top coat.
I have small Asian eyes that have begun to get droopier as I age. After reading the reviews, I thought I'd try this to see if I got the "lift" that everyone was raving about. Unfortunately, I don't see much change at all. It is a very nice silky feeling cream, and doesn't cause milia bumps. But for the price it's not worth it.
Concealers -Dermablend - Smooth Indulgence Concealer

This is a great product for my acne prone skin. I found that if you store it upright and shake it before you dispense it then there's no watery residue that comes out first. It's one of the few concealers that doesn't make me break out and it lasts all day. Also, the nude color blends perfectly with my Asian skin. To keep the tip germ free, I squeeze just a dab into my palm and then apply it from there. It's a little pricey, but you need so little, the tube will last you a looong time.
