I was so excited when they were advertising this to come out, it looked so awesome for some reason. Well the only good thing, in my opinion, is the bottle. I have long eye lashes but this stuff clumps like no other. I don't understand why this costs so much more than others? Most drug store mascaras are better than this crap! Anyhow now that I've vented about wasting my money I feel better!!!!
Deodorants -Dove - Ultimate Clear Go Fresh Energizing
aimeee1 11/22/2011 12:13:00 PM
I absolutely LOVE these Dove ultimate Go Fresh deodorant sticks! My favorite is the Cool Essentials with cucumber & green tea. (It's the green lid) They also make a matching body wash to go with this deodorant, which I put a picture up with it. This body wash comes in a HUGE bottle and lasts forever. A lot of times, u won't even have to use any kind of perfume or lotion after u use this stuff! If u haven't tried these products, def. recommend to u!!!
Masks -Borghese - Fango Active Mud for Face and Body
aimeee1 11/21/2011 10:02:00 PM
I tried this mask a few years ago because a friend of mine worked at the mall at a department store that sold Borghese. Otherwise, I probably would have never used it. This reminds me a lot of the Queen Helene face mask. I'd say it's a toss up between the 2 on which one I like the best. This one obviously costs a lot more, but they both last a really long time so that's not that big of a deal. I had never seen the glass jar until on here, I had always bought the orange tubes. I think the tubes are maybe 2 oz. and one of those lasts me a good 6 months! I have dry skin, but not super dry and after I use this product, I feel like I've been to the spa and had some treatment to tighten up my face. Do yourself a little favor and try this for a small treat for yourself!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Cotton Candy Fantasy 8 oz. Body Spray
aimeee1 11/21/2011 5:57:00 PM
This is a super "Fun" body spray, no matter what your age is. It is by Body Fantasies and is the Cotton Candy Fantasy 8 oz. size. They just changed their packaging so it looks a little classier now. You can get this at Walgreen's, Wal-Mart, places like that. The fragrance is a wonderful blend of spun sugar and creamy vanilla, combined with notes of tender strawberries, lush raspberries, and clean musk (although I don't smell musk at all) It smells a lot like the Aquolina Pink Sugar, but at a fraction of the cost. You barely have to spray any on and it lasts all day!! They make the lotion that matches, but it doesn't smell nearly as good as this spray does. If you like strong scents that are sweet, try this--you will hopefully think it is as yummy as me!!!
Lips -Mirenesse - velvet lip lift moisture shine # 2
aimeee1 11/21/2011 5:29:00 PM
This is the #2 champagne brown color of MIRENESSE Velvet Lip Lift Moisture Shine "Lip Plumping" lip gloss. This is the 2nd one over in the picture and it is a darker brown on your lips than "champagne" sounds like. I ordered this online and got 2 for the price of 1. I actually haven't seen this in any stores, but I believe I only paid about $15 for both so that's not bad at all. I really do like this lip gloss, but I"m not sure how much of the "plumping" they do. I haven't noticed that at all. I like a "thickish" lip gloss so if you don't like that style then you may not like this brand. I have been working on my first tube for a while and it's about 1/2 way gone so they seem to last for a while. I haven't tried any of the other colors, so I can only comment on this one. I will probably try some other colors but I just wanted to share this with my other buddies on here to try this if you haven't ever heard of it. Hopefully you will like it as much as me!
Skincare - Body -Dove - Go Fresh-Cucumber & Green Tea - Body Wash
aimeee1 11/21/2011 4:51:00 PM
I have tried all of the Dove liquid body washes and this one, in my opinion, is the "Cleanest" smelling one of all. It is Dove GO FRESH Cucumber and Green Tea body wash. It comes in a HUGE bottle so if you think it's a little pricey, it will last you a while. PLUS you can shave with it and it works better than shaving cream in my opinion!!! ALSO they make a deodorant that matches it (comes with the green lid) I just bought this a couple days ago at Wal-Mart and I love it so much. It makes your bathroom smell so clean for hours (not to mention your body) It is especially great in the winter time because we tend to dry out more. I can even go without putting lotion on my legs and they don't dry out! That is saying a lot!!! Give it a try!!
This was the very first mask I tried several years ago and I had no idea what I was doing. A friend of mine dragged me to Walgreen's and we bought this for around $4 and went home and slathered it on. I loved the smell and I loved the way my skin felt afterwards. After finishing that tube, I tried several different ones over the years including very expensive ones thinking they must be better, right? WRONG!! I have to say, in my opinion, this mask is just as good or probably BETTER than 90% of the other masks out on the market right now. I love the scent as well. So, if you haven't tried this one, go to Walgreen's or Wal-Mart and buy this one in the green tube (the Mint Julep) I have tried the clay one in the brown tube by Queen Helene, I liked it too but not as much. If you don't like it, then you're out $4 or $5 bucks. I will bet you will like this mask and wish you could have all your money back from the expensive ones you have bought over the years! HOPE THIS HELPS SOMEONE!!
Doesn't this lip gloss look beautiful in the package? Well, that's about as far as it goes. I'm the kind of girl who buys my make-up on sale, and at the drug stores, etc. It seems like everytime I take a chance and order something expensive online because it reeled me in, I get screwed! Yes, the container is pretty. I first used my finger to put it on and I couldn't see anything on my lips. So, I tried my lipstick brush and put A LOT on, and you could see it, but it was nothing special! I am so disappointed in this and I haven't used it very much and you can already see the bottom so obviously it doesn't hold much in it's little flip top container. I swear, I'm just going to stick with my inexpensive drug store make-up that when I don't like it, it hasn't cost me an arm and a leg and put me in a bad mood!!!
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion
aimeee1 11/21/2011 3:10:00 PM
I have never understood the hoopla about this moisturizer! It's been around forever and it is about the worst facial moisturizer I have ever used! If you've never tried it, please don't waste your money on this! They are always giving it away in their GWP, so I have gotten suckered in a few times when I receive it in my GWP items. Every time, I always have to re-wash my face and put on a better moisturizer. Anyway, hope this review helps someone save some money. And Clinique.......STOP MAKING THIS STUFF AND TRY SOMETHING BETTER, PLEASE!!!!!
I love this toner! I have to say I love most Lancome products, but this is the first toner I have bought from them. It says it's for oily skin, however I have dry skin and it works just as well for me. You just have to shake it up really well before you put it on. I'm not sure how much it is at the department store. I know it still sells there, but I always order things online. Well, I got lucky and I found this for $10 for a full size bottle. (That may sound high to some people, but for Lancome it's cheap!) It's a large bottle and it will probably last me a long time because I don't over use it. I just wanted to post this because I do have regular to dry skin and it works great for me! It's not just for oily skinned people.
When I first bought this product, I really liked it! I used it for about a week and then I started noticing that it was drying up in the package. It got worse and worse til I had to throw it away. (And it wasn't cheap, ya know) Well, I thought I might have had a dud so I bought another one. The same thing happened. It's a shame because that first week or so it really worked well with great coverage! I'll stick to my Cover Girl Ultimate Finish Liquid Powder, which is basically the same thing but has NEVER dried up on me like this. Give it a shot, and it cost about a 1/3 of the other!
This was my fav scent at BBW so I tried this shampoo/conditioner. WHEW let me tell you, it is the best shamp/cond I have tried in a LONG time. I have long hair so it's hard to find a conditioner to let me comb my hair out easily after my bath. This lets your comb glide through like silk!! Here's a l'il news for you. The only place you can buy this now is on their website or probably on e-bay or something. They have discontinued this line in the lotions, sprays, etc. but for some reason they kept the shampoo and conditioner--but not in the stores. Do yourself a favor and go on the BBW website and try it out (if u like this scent) It's def. my HG in shampoo and conditioner!!
Shampoo -Bath and Body Works - Signature line- Coconut lime verbena
aimeee1 11/21/2011 1:14:00 PM
This is my newest fav shampoo and conditioner (Not just from BBW, but anywhere) The smell is to die for and if you like to skip a day in between days like I do, your hair still looks as fresh as it did the day before. It will also comb out super easily when you get out of the shower! Here's a bit of info for you....they no longer have this line in the store. I mean no lotions, sprays, anything in this scent. You CAN however still buy this shampoo and conditioner on the BBW website. I went on there and stocked up. I'm not sure how long they will keep it on there, but do yourself a favor and purchase some off of their website. You won't be disappointed, I promise!!
Crème -MAC - Select SPF 15 Moistureblend [DISCONTINUED]
aimeee1 11/21/2011 12:55:00 PM
I usually don't pay this much for make-up, but I really wanted to try this for some reason. I ordered it online and I know I paid around $25 or more for it. I was so excited to receive it UNTIL I put it on! I have super dry skin and when I first looked at this it looked really creamy but I thought that would be OK because of my skin. Well, when I applied it, it just seemed to smudge around all over my face and gave hardly any coverage! I ordered the NC40 color and I don't think that is the right shade for me, but I don't think I would like it in any other shades as well. Let me give you a tip if any of this sounds like something you have experienced...... Try Cover Girl's Ultimate Finish Cream to Powder makeup. It comes in a compact and is supposed to do the same thing as this. I absolutely LOVE that stuff and it gives u a full coverage so you don't even have to use a concealer with it. If I didn't learn anything else from this, it was that just because something costs about 5 times more than another product, it doesn't make it better!!! Thanks and Good Luck to you girlies! I WISH I WOULD HAVE CAME ON HERE AND READ YOU REVIEWS BEFORE I BOUGHT MINE BECAUSE THEY SOUND A LOT LIKE MINE!!
Powder -Cover Girl - CoverGirl Ultimate Finish Cream to Powder Makeup
aimeee1 11/21/2011 12:24:00 PM
This is my HG drugstore makeup/foundation. I have dry skin and this stuff goes on with nearly FULL coverage, so it acts as a concealer as well. I use this when I have time to apply my whole face. When I don't, I use a TM and mascara and run out the door. This covergirl stuff is super fast to apply AND it's super CHEAP as well! I use the IVORY shade because I have super light skin. I really like the sponge and mirror that come with it, so it's great to throw in your purse as well! All in all, I def. recommend this, except if you have oily skin I'm not sure how well it would work for you!
