Cleansers -Bioderma - Sensibio H2O (aka Crealine H20 Solution micellaire)
angelic88 1/6/2012 1:56:00 PM
The only cleanser my eyes and skin tolerates without breaking out, drying , itching, redness.. I find a lot of half price offers on it and i do stock up when so. I do tend to go through a bottle fairly quickly. Cleans perfectly without irritating the face, not so great with heavy eye makeup or mascara,, needs a little more patience and soaked cotton pads. Used for: years. <3
Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil
angelic88 1/6/2012 1:44:00 PM
Love: great for dry skin - apply after showers Only. I also tried layering vaseline's cocoa lotion (or butter in winter) - excellllent combination :) Scent ; very chocolately - BUT even with the above combination it doesnt last long and i do wear perfumes without worrying about clashing. Used for: years! What i hate ; the bottle has GOT TO change ! i place it on a soap dish cuz it ALways leaks on surfaces. Or just pour into to a spray bottle.
if you want a black eye liner/kohl to apply to the INNER part of your eyelid this is by far the best i've tried so far (magic kohl -black). No smudging, lines easily and smoothly, Realllly black and lasts for most of my long working hours. <3.
Lip Gloss -ModelCo - Lip Lights Glamour Gloss in Indian Summer

my absolute favorite lipgloss at the moment :) pros; -great staying power ~ the best so far for me! - great texture, creamy not sticky or too runny. cons; - all shades looked veery similar on my lips & sheer - on lipstick it looks lovely, but i'd like more shades, more color!
i generally hate coconut scents in products but this smells lovely and a little sweet. I had a veeery bad experience with the old version of TBS scrubs (felt like layering yourself and your bathtub with -difficult to wash off -vaseline.. gross :X) but i decided to go have another look based on the reviews - since it was impossible that people were commenting positively on the same stuff. Love this scrub! makes my skin suuuuuper smooooth. 1X weekly; plus TBS body polish for more frequent use. Perfect :)
tried almost every brand but this is simply the BEST for me!! i have short fine lashes and is the onlyy mascara that does an amazing job of lengthening & thickening. it's also the only one that doesn't clump my lashes. & i love the 'huge' brush =P Does need replacing in ~3 months when it starts to dry out and flake.
just the thing for my hair after i colored it.. it started to break, and became weak and dull. i use the mask 1-2x per week and it gives it a lot of bounce and *shiiiine*. lasts a few washes, perfect for me.

for pampering and when you want your skin to be SILKY smooth asap! ~absolutely LOooVE the smell!! ~expensive but you don't need that much each time; i rub it in my palms then apply, massage for a while then rinse. bottle cap allows you to control amount very easily too. ~i try to use it once a week and a day or two after intensive exfoliation ~amaaaaaaazing!
this is the color i've been looking for for a looong while,,the kind of essential shade that compliments my skintone and looks good withOut any more makeup. i wear it in the morning with mascara and it's enough. LoVe IT =) great staying power and coverage,, and of course.. beautiful packaging!
Moisturizers -Yves Saint Laurent - Nuit Intense Night Cream
angelic88 1/3/2008 3:23:00 PM
my favorite night cream <3 light, nongreasy, great texture, absorbed very easily and makes a visible difference in the morning ppl notice! my skin feels soft and refreshed too. i apply a tiny amount so i would def. love it even more in a tube!!
i loved this product until i twisted it shut the 2nd time and it started seeping out the cap. I would definatley not repurchase purely for this reason alone.. it's such a waste to lose 5X as much as u need for each application by just closing it!!! the coverage is reasonable, and it's smooth, easy to apply and blend. I also love that it doesn't crease.
i've been using this product for one year now; great product for my combination skin, i apply it on a brush, then brush a thin layer evenly only my forehead and nose, let it dry, then wash it off with warm water and a soft sponge. i get soft skin, healthy looking & that irritating greasy shine look is banished for a few days =)!! ~ i do occaaaisonally apply it to my acne zone too & it does tend to calm down my flareups.
i get compliments when i wear this perfume alll the time, the EDP has great staying power. floral-fruity~woody. i get headaches very frequently with soo many perfumes, glad this one, although not so 'light', has passed the test, lovely dry-down too. Amazing frangrance i absolutely <3 it!
I've used several tubes of the satuma and strawberry body polishes & they're great daily-use products. For me, using it with a soft washcloth is essential to get great results. I love the fact that it's nongreasy, washes off quickly and the granules are just the right size -not too harsh, exfoliates effectively. i would want to see the body polishes in more scents tho.
Liquid -Guerlain - Silky-Smooth Foundation Semi-matt SPF12
angelic88 10/13/2007 5:47:00 AM
This is my ideal foundation for the past year! Great coverage, texture and a faint powdery scent , and has the best natural shade for me (ambre clair). On my mixed skin type it gives an even skintone with a healthy-looking glow (Not shiny, not powder matt~ in between; just perfect) . Totally love it :))
