Treatments -Skinceuticals - Refining Night Cream With .5% Pure Retinol
baldwabear 10/30/2009 3:18:00 PM
Warning- This will make all of your skin peel off of your face if you dont ease into using it. Will cause serious peeling. I have been using this approx every 3 nights for the past 2 months. Very small amount-but a little goes a really long way. Does leave my skin soft Doesnt moisturize so I use a little jojoba oil approx 30 min after applying. I have noticed a little change in the fine lines that I have but the peeling will cause your skin to look worse at first. I would compare this to Green Cream Level 9. Staple in my night routine
LOVE IT! Color MLBB Great staying power Love the stickness of the gloss great packaging daily staple Keeps my lips moist
I love all of the other Mac glosses that I own but I am on the fence w. this one. It goes on really thick and iswhitish/pink. It takes a couple of seconds for it to set on your lips and melt into a more natual color. Excellent staying power Would look good with a smoky eye.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Lash Blast Luxe Black Cabernet
baldwabear 10/30/2009 3:09:00 PM
I like to try lots of mascara. I saw good reviews here for Lash Blast (orange). I saw the Luxe that said a hint of shimmer. So HECK decided to give it a try. Black Cabernet is not straight black-but blackish/reddish/purple with a hint of shimmer that I really cant see when I put it on. I wasnt sure I would like the plastic bristle brush. I cant wipe off excess the same way as w. a reg. brush. Which is why it takes a while to get the hang of not getting clumps It can look really natural and does a decent job at adding length and volume but.... Will not repurchase.
Bought this as a replacement for Cocoa Butter Creamfor my pregnany (Dr. told me Cocoa Butter could cause baby's heart to race, anyway...) PROS:I like the thick texture, seems to moisturize my skin, great value for the size CON..but I just dont like the smell (reminds me of either my grandma or really bad/cheap soap) Also doesnt do well applying w. slightly damp skin out of the shower.
After reading the reviews here I tried this LG. I got a free Wild Clover Lip Liner w. purchase. Amazing color. Very similiar to my own lip color. Taste and smell are not overpowering or weird. The lip liner and the LG together are a great way to wear lip color w.o looking like you are wearing any. Cheap and great. Will continue to repurchase.
I bought this color on Ebay for 5.00. I like the smell and there is zero taste. The color of the tube is a bright orange/red color. It goes on lips a very very sheer w. a hint of color that would probably suite most skin tones. THe tube makes the color easy to apply. It does not last a really long time. I do miss the sticky factor of the lipglass. I do like the product , but would not pay full price.
Love the staying power of this gloss. It is thick and stays on my lip really well. My hair does get stuck in it which I equate to a really good, thick lip gloss. I do not like the fact that mine leaks and I cannot carry it in my bag. Will repurchase. I like this gloss better than the higher end clear glosses for the $$
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Glassy Gloss- Sugar Glaze

I have this in Mocha Glaze. I love the thickness and the staying power for such an cheap lip gloss. I do not like the smell. But I can deal w. it as opposed to pay 20.00 and up for other l/g that delivers that same staying power and glossiness. Will repurchase in other colors
Styling Products -John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Finishing Creme
baldwabear 12/28/2007 7:32:00 PM
I have curly/frizzy dry hair that is chin lenght when I air dry curly. Usually I have to wash my hair every other day if I wear it curly due to the frizz. If I use a small amount of this product on my dry hair I am good to go. It makes my frizzies go away and I can get my fingers thru my hair. It really helps make it lay better. I like this product way more than the frizz serum. I have not tried on my hair when I flat iron, but plan too. Will continue to repurchase!!!
I have never tried a glossing product. My hair is curly and virgin ( I straighen it) and dry. I tried the Clear Glaze in the shower today. Followed the directions and used just enough to cover the hair. Waited 5 minutes and rinsed. Liked the smell. Wasnt sure how much it would do. Let my hair air dry naturally w.o any other product in it. First I didnt notice anything different till I straighted it. w. my CHI. WOW soft hair and shine. Will repurchase. Could be due to my dry hair. have not tried it styled curly yet.

Moisturizers -Olay - Definity Correcting Protective Lotion with SPF 15
baldwabear 8/28/2006 7:22:00 PM
I wasn't sure about this product at first. I was looking for a sunscreen for day and this product makes my dry skin look luminous. It is not greasy on my face. It does not do well with my Bare Minerals foundation. I found that a light liquid compliments the product better (only applying where needed). At night I take turns with Green Cream 3 or 6 and change off with Olay reginerist serum. Will buy again and agin
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Nude Lustre

Love it. I am pale and I was alittle afraid about this color, but WOW I bought 2 for $6.00 so it was worth it. Not really nude makes my lips look really natural but better. Will repurchase along with other colors. MUST BUY!! Plesant smell, good coverage, love the pkg.
