Tinted Moisturizer -Sukí - SukiColor - Tinted Active Moisturizer

I wanted to like this product, but I'm more inclined to physicians formula organic tinted moisturizer. This TM was very expensive. The color in natural was way off, it made my skin look very orange and oily. I tried to make it work, but it just ain't workin. I would try this this porcelain but I'm not porcelain colored... I wish they would improve the quality of this because I love the ingredients!
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

I happened upon this product only because the store was out of my regular.. I had little hope for it. Turns out to be amazing! ESP with removing makeup. It works best in combination with the citrus facial scrub. Smells like orange slice candy.
Palettes -Josie Maran Cosmetics - Natural Wonder Powders Palette

I just received this palette and used it for the first time today. I got it for half price on Josie's website for $18, which is an awesome deal. My first thoughts of the palette was that it was really small. Its hard to use the blush with a regular sizes brush without being extremely careful of touching the shadows. All the colors are beautiful, but it's lacking a darker shade for a crease and a lighter matte shade for the brow bone. I like that it comes without a brush and it's very nice to take on vacation. The mirror is nice and big. I wouldn't purchase again just because,.. But it's nice to try.
Lip Treatments -Juice Beauty - SPF 15 Tinted Lip Moisturizer

I really like these lip balms, but they are a bit on the expensive side. I like the natural and pink shade, but the reddish one isn't doing it for me. My lips feel really nice and soft when I wear these and I like that the ingredients are safe. You can definitely build these up with a liner and gloss if you're wanting something moisturizing and a little more sheer than lipstick.
I own this polish in the color "Avery" which is a sandy nude color. Very close to my skin color. It has stayed on my toenails for about 2 months. It stayed on my nails 1-2 weeks. I love that I can get polish on the site fore half price by giving my cosmetology license number! I will definitely be purchasing more of this brand. And love that it's 3 free as well.
Scrubs -Burt's Bees - Peach and Willowbark Deep Pore Scrub

This stuff is okay, but nothing amazing. I use it only when I feel like I have a film over my face. It definitely makes you feel squeaky clean. But like I said... It's just okay to me.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Deep Cleansing Cream with Soap Bark and Chamomile

I'm not crazy about this product at all. It claimed to remove makeup, but failed miserably. It doesn't soap up, not even a teensy bit. I like soapy usually. Definitely purchase their citrus facial scrub. It doesn't suds up, but it removes makeup amazingly and doesn't even claim to :). Your face feels so clean afterwards too.
Moisturizers -Burt's Bees - sensitive daily moisturizing cream

I'm in my second container of this and I love it. Most moisturizers keep my face oily or break me out, but this stuff is lightweight and absorbs well. I use it in combination everyday with the citrus facial scrub.
Okay, I'm almost finished with my second jar of this and will always purchase it as long as they make it. This stuff keeps my face clear because of the exfoliation I get everyday, but it's so gentle.. So it just keeps your skin soft and smooth. It removed makeup amazingly well. It says not to use in eye area, but I do gently, only when I'm wearing makeup. The jar can be a little hard to get used to, but it's cute. This stuff is concentrated so you don't need much. Just try it!! :)
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear Jumbo Lash Mascara

Since switching to more natural and organic makeup products, this is the first natural mascara I've used.. So I really don't have anything to compare it to. BUT...I will say that overall I love this mascara. (and I'm EXTREMELY picky about mascara) The first time you use it, it works great(usually it takes mascara a few weeks of usage before it gets thicker) it has texture that's very easy to work with and build able. Being that it washes off extremely easy, after the day is done you may have some faint coon eyes. Just be sure to powder well under your eyes because moisture is what gives you the coin eyes. It doesn't flake on me, and I've been using this mascara for a few months now. I would give it 5 stars, but the fact that it's so water soluble is the only downside I see.
