The Aziza (non-cream) eyeshadows are pretty nice and good for the money. They look nice and I will keep an eye out for more, great deal. Of course, they are mostly matte, and I do like a bit of shimmer.
Eyeliner -Aziza - 3-in-1 Color Sticks with Sharpener
bablondie25 5/8/2006 12:06:00 PM
Well, you can't always win. These are okay as eyeliners, but cheek or lipliners, they don't really do it for me, too dry or something. OH well, lost a buck..I will continue to use the "white" for under my eyes. That's all I really bought it for anyway.
Eye Shadow -Aziza - Creamy, shimmering eyeshadow, blue tones
bablondie25 5/8/2006 12:05:00 PM
Aziza is pretty good for the price, except this. At first, putting it on, it is gorgeous (the colors). But it was sooo emoliant, that it wore off and sunk into my eyelid creases, not what you want from a creamy eyeshadow. I may try it with "eyelid primer" on it first and see if that keeps it put...or powder over eyelids. The only creamy ones that do not do this are the revlon ones.
I actually liked my Revlon Brush better than this. This is okay, bristles are a little hard, it's big and bulky, and odd shaped, but it's okay about a 6 out of 10, but I'm looking for a cheap 10!
Moisturizers -Avon - ANEW Retroactive plus night repair cream
bablondie25 5/3/2006 4:05:00 PM
Awesome stuff. I have renewed faith in this line. My face looks really good right now. I had a rash around my nose forever, and it reduced it totally (I think b/c of retinol in it?) Anyway, I will buy again, definitely. Buy when there's a big sale!
Skincare - Body -Elariia - Cucumber Mint (anything)
bablondie25 5/2/2006 4:13:00 AM
I think this is a good product, smells nice and minty (cucumber, not really). But it has arnica in it, which I like. And it is the most moisturizing foot cream ever! I still love L'occitane foot cream #1 though. This is #2 now. LOL
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Walgreens - Alpha Hydroxy Lotion 8%
bablondie25 4/30/2006 6:12:00 AM
Good price, I thought it worked okay. Not terribly moisturizing. I got it for my hubby. It didn't smell like much (not the best smell). I liked it except that I think I would benefit from a higher percentage of AhA's...
My husband's favorite scent! Smells crisp, like a fresh spring/summer day! YuM!
Good concept, good price, but I don't see the big deal. It doesn't do much for me, but maybe it's because I have small lips and don't have problems with bleeding anyway? Maybe...
Skincare - Body -Bath and Body Works - Aromatherapy- Eucalyptus and Spearmint
bablondie25 4/12/2006 4:38:00 PM
I really love Eucalyptus Mint smells, but I don't like SPEARmint! It's too much like bubble gum! If they put it with a different mint, It might have worked!
I thought I would try this for my hubby just b/c of the reviews! Plus, we shop at TJoe's!!!! I saw it for like 2$ and change, and was like what the heck? Come to find out my PICKY husband says "IT'S THE BEST ONE HE'S EVER USED!" How's that for a review? I have not, personally tried it on my legs, but I would love to! It's a keeper! For that price, smell, and size you get! Go for it.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Time Out Brand from Sears
bablondie25 4/12/2006 4:30:00 PM
I love to buy these as gifts. I love their Xmas-time scents in Cinnamon Apple, you can get their package deals on sale, their hand wash and body lotion in pump form. The packaging is absolutely adorable! Great presents. Another favorite was Gingerbread. My little 5-year old niece asked me like 5 times a day to use it on her arms. It smelled like pumpkin to me, a delicious scent! Great to have around for winter, the hand wash and body lotion. I'm not that into body lotions so I gave it a 4 star, it is a light weight lotion. I love body creams better. They have other Time Out products that smell pretty good, you'd have to go to Sears to give them a whiff: Pear (good), Strawberry (excellent for gift giving), some other florals and fruity scents, along with body sprays.
Yuck! I hated it, my husband hated it on me or anywhere near it. I thought I would use it up anyway, and he thought I stunk like an old lady (I did!). My daughter hated it...I had to throw it out. I was not impressed with the very old lady funeral home scent, nor the consistency. Although it has RAVE reviews all over HSN, it made me soooo curious. I am shocked over the reviews! It stinks bad! Try lavender honey, dark chocolate, or shea almond!
I LOOOOOVE THIS DARK CHOCOLATE LINE! I love it in the hand cream and body creams, but the cream bath, it's so so for me. The scent is really light in the bath cream, and somewhat watery for me. I tend to like Philosophy body washes much better. Although I do like Elariia's Shea Almond body wash. I have to be "really" impressed with a body wash to like it (it has to be thick, well-scented, very moisturizing, etc). I am quite spoiled on my body washes!
Lotions/ Creams -Perlier - Dark Chocolate Body Balm
bablondie25 4/6/2006 5:54:00 AM
I love it. I tend to like "thicker" creams, but this is fluffy so it is not bad. I love creams, and body butters! This smells to die for. I have smelled plenty of chocolate smells and it's hard to do a "chocolate" sniff just right. This is RIGHT ON. If I see sets, I will buy buy buy. I love everything about it, the shower wash is okay in my eyes. This smells like CHOCOLATE PUDDING, or Swiss cocoa mix, but stronger and lasts longer. MMMM .
