Makeup Brushes -Too Faced - Retractable Kabuki Brush

I got this for my b-day into 09, since I'd been looking for a decent Kabuki brush. Just so I let everyone know, you can't find a good one at a drugstore. You just can't. I love how soft this is, and how it glides all my powders, blush, and bronzer on evenly. I just wish it was easier to clean!
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Airbrush-Effect Dry Mist BODY
akimakeiya 2/26/2010 5:15:00 PM
Don't like it. Bought it at Wally World for about $9. Gave me nice color, but the color would peel off. I just can't seem to find a good self tanner that lasts!
This is such an addicting scent! I'm really bad at identifying notes of fragrance, so I won't be able to tell you what's in it. I found it at Ross for $25(which is a terrific price) and it's super addicting. You want to smell it all the time! One of my favorite scents.
I love this! I used it after a bath or shower, and it is just what I'm looking for. I used to use Jergens Ultra Hydrating Lotion, but it wasn't moisturizing as well as I needed. I have oily skin on my face, but the rest of my body is extremely dry. It can also be sensitive, so I look for unscented lotions and creams for daily use after bathing. I like creams better, since they are extra moisturizing and thicker. My mom has been using this for years, and let me have a tub she got on sale. It calms and makes my skin baby soft. I just wish it was cheaper!
I liked it for the first few days I used it. I have keratosis pilaris, and it seemed to ease the bumps and redness. Sadly, a week later, my skin broke into a flaming rash and began to peel. Will not repurchase, and will continue to look for a cure for my KP.
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser

This is genius. I mean, how much cuter could you get than a scrublet? I got this for free, b/c my friend bought it and it dried out her skin. THIS IS FOR OILY SKIN! Which I have, for the most part, which a load of blackheads all over my nose. I've noticed using this scrublet seems to help and my nose is losing blackheads and looking clearer. Even with my other cleanser. I've been quite pleased with this, it's much more gentle than a facial brush, and cleaner than a washcloth, since I don't like using my fingers to clean my face. Genius idea, L'Oreal!
The only thing I don't like is that I wish it would dissolve faster. But otherwise, this is perfect if you have dry and itchy skin, like KP or eczema. It calms the redness, and soothes it, too. Great for chickenpox, too!!!!
Shave Products -Aveeno - Positively Smooth Shave Gel

This is really great! I had been using the Skintimate stuff for years, since I was a preteen, but I had recently read in Allure that this was a great shave gel. So I decided to try it. I love the light scent, and frankly, my legs have never felt smoother. I don't think I'll being going back to Raspberry Rain anytime soon. Aveeno makes such good quality products!
Gels/Soaps -Dove - Sensitive Skin Unscented Beauty Bar
akimakeiya 2/26/2010 4:40:00 PM
I've used this bar for years, ever since I was a little girl, my mom used it on me. It's the only bar/soap I can use without feeling like the top layer of my skin is being ripped off. I am able to use other shower gels or washes, because the fact it's unscented doesn't interfere with the scent of my body wash. I'm pretty sure I'll never use anything else, and with the price, why bother?
Concealers -Neutrogena - 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes
akimakeiya 2/26/2010 4:35:00 PM
As a concealer, it's terrible. Doesn't cover up my dark circles like I wanted, and the color choices are too limited. I'd rather not waste it, so I'm using it as an eye shadow base. Rather not buy again.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Wear Eyeshadow Trio - Bronze Glitz
akimakeiya 2/26/2010 4:30:00 PM
Really good quality, and I wasn't expecting it to be so good. Goes on like a dream, perfect finish. Gives my skin a glow. I couldn't believe I was so impressed with a $5 eyeshadow trio. Looks great especially if you dip the applicator in water and apply the shadow! Would purchase again.
I use dry shampoo after a good hair day to keep my style for another day, and it's very hard to find dry shampoo at drugstores. I was using Pssst's dry shampoo, but they stopped carrying it at my local Walgreens. Luckily, just as it had been taken off the shelves, TRESemme came out with one. I bought it, and it was even a buck cheaper than the Pssst one. To me, it works better, and smells better! And it gives my hair more volume than the other brand did. Good job once again, TRESemme!
I love the smell of this body wash! It reminds me of holiday sweets. And it buffs very nicely. The KP bumbs on my skin have smoothed down and my skin is just super smooth! I use this as a scrub to exfoliate. Its great and I'd buy again.
I bought this in the light pink shade and might I say I love the color. I have very fair skin and it added just the right amount of pink to the apples of my cheeks. Very flattering. Would buy again.

It was much too frosty, and made the pores on my cheeks look HUGE. I didnt like it. Would not recommend it, was very dissapointed.
