Styling Products -Unlisted Brand - David Babaii for WildAid Beach Spray

I love this product for so many reasons. The most important reason is that it works very well for my hair. My hair is past my shoulders, on the oily side, has a natural wave to it, and tends to get a bit frizzy. I need some help to maintain the waves, otherwise my hair falls flat in a couple of hours. I use this beach spray along with an anti-frizz serum and my hair stays wavy, but without that crunchy texture. Personally, I love the smell. It smells like the beach to me. I'll definitely repurchase.
Self Tanners -Jergens - natural glow express medim/tan

Sometimes I look tan when using this product, and sometimes I look yellow. Like another reviewer noted, I look yellow when I'm outside. Indoors it looks fine though. I won't be repurchasing for that reason. It applies decently with minimal streaking and doesn't smell terrible. However, I won't be repurchasing.
This product doesn't work for me. I've followed the instructions and have used it with both Hard Candy brand nail polish and OPI brand nail polish. In both cases I've had chips in my nail polish within a day or two. I definitely won't be repurchasing.
Gorgeous, gorgeous lilac color. It's great for spring and summer. I only need two coats of it for an even application. With a base and top coat it lasts about 10 days with minimal chipping. Very easy to apply because of the big brush. I'll be using this frequently.
Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop - Neroli Jasmine Shower Gel

I love this body wash for a few reasons. It moisturizes my body and also cleans it. There's no residue left on my skin. It also lathers easily and like another reviewer said this means a lot of product isn't wasted. The scent is very strong in the shower, but not as strong on the skin. The scent itself is lovely - a nice floriental. Will definitely repurchase.
Eyeliner -Styli-Style - Flat Eyeliner Pencil (general)

I bought this in Aspen (a bronzey color) and love it. The pencil glided on with no problems. I have very oily skin and make up likes to slide off of it so with all my eye products I use Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath and Benefit's SheLaq on top. It was a very hot day, I had the eyeliner on for 8 hours and it faded and wore off only a bit. It didn't end up all over the place. I'm definitely impressed.
This is a bubble gum pink color that's perfect for spring. I only need two coats of it to get full coverage. When I use Sally Hansen's Double Life Base and Top Coat the polish lasts about a week and a half with very minimal chipping. I want to check out other colors from this line. I definitely want to check out other colors from the Salon Nail Lacquer line.
I got this simply because I was curious about it - I didn't expect it to do much. I've found that I really like it though. I have gross, combination skin which leaves my makeup in not so great condition sometimes. I spray this one after I put on my make up and I feel like it helps my make up from getting cakey.
Eyeliner -Hard Candy - Super Slim Eye Pencil - Tarpit

I have two problems with this eyeliner. The first one is that it is hard to apply. The pencil tugs at the eyelid - it's not a smooth application. And the staying power is terrible. I have very oily eyelids so I like to test new products before I wear them out. I put this on with both UDPP and She-laq and within two hours it smudged. With better quality eyeliners if I use those two products I can get triple or more the amount of hours. I didn't give it one lippie because someone with less oily eyelids might have a better experience.
I really love this nail polish. On me it's more of a dark gray color. I paired it with Sally Hansen's Double Life Base & Top Coat. It lasts over 10 days for me with minimal chipping. It's a beautiful shade and much more low maintenance than I expected from such a dark color.
I'm very impressed with this eyeliner. I have it in forest/lime. It was super easy to apply - it didn't tug on my eyelids. I didn't have problems creating a precise line. It also lasted awhile which is my biggest concern. I have very oily eyelids and with some Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath and Benefit SheLaq on top the eyeliner lasts for over 8 hours on my eyes. I would definitely buy other colors.
This winter has not been kind to my skin so I needed something heavier than my usual moisturizer (Neutrogena - oil-free for sensitive skin). I purchased this and was nervous because I'm prone to breakouts. I have not broken out from it and it is definitely very moisturizing. I don't wake up with tight skin and flakes anymore. I'm not disappointed with this purchase.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 45 with Helioplex

I use this product everyday. I like that I can tell that this is definitely a sunscreen product due to its consistency and even smell. It's perfect for daytime. However at night I feel like because this isn't as moisturizing during the day, I need to make sure I use something heavier to make up for it. I also have not broken out from it.
Top/Base Coats -Sally Hansen - Salon Nail Care Double Life Base & Top Coat
cranberry7 12/13/2008 10:02:00 PM
This definitely extends the life of my nail polish color. I'd say using this product my nail polish lasts a week with minimal chipping. After that however the chipping can get pretty bad. I also like that it's a safer base and top coat and would use it for that reason.
I'm a fan of this bronzer. It looks quite natural on me (and I'm fair skinned). The best part about it is probably its size. I like that it's so big because I'm able to evenly distribute the bronzer on a brush with one quick sweep/dab into the product. It even smells nice.
