I love this stuff! I received this as an extra in a swap, and I am absolutely thrilled with it. I'm really pale, and this just warms and brightens up my face. Either with tinted moisturizer or alone, it looks good all the time.
I got a huge bottle of this on sale at HEB. I used to use it on my hair, but then had gotten out of the habit. After reading the reviews on its benefits for eyelashes and eyebrows I had to try it, and it was an overnight success! My lashes looked like false ones when I put on mascara the next day. Just think how different foundation looks on a moisturized face vs. dry skin. It COMPLETELY changes it. Its super cheap, so its worth a shot. If you don't like it you can always keep it around as a laxative :) (haha.....I was curious on how it worked because I had never tried a laxative before, so I tried it, and believe you me it works! I guess its something you probably shouldn't do if you don't need to, but if you are in need....just reach for the castor oil!)
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment

I never knew my elbows were ticklish until I used this, because I don't think they have ever been able to feel through the rough dry skin before! ITs a very new sensation for the cat to rub on my elbow, or for my sheet to rub up against it and it tickles. I've tried all kinds of lotions, creams, serums, and whatever else I could on my elbows, but they were always dry. I tried products for dry feet and they never came close to this stuff. Within two days my elbows are so soft they are sensitive, and its GREAT!
Powder -Jane - Be Pure Mineral Makeup with *Puff attached*

My sister bough the fair shade, and when she didn't like it passed it on to me. At first I didn't get the puff, but I hit it on my hand until the powder was coming out evenly, and I have never looked back, I love it! It gives me the absolute most natural finish I have ever had. I cannot do most mineral, liquid, or many other foundations. I was blessed with good skin, and I thank God and my parents all the time :) But most foundations make me look fake, even when I tried mixing with moisturizer, and even then there was no way I could ever put powder on top. I know that Jane has colors that don't work for a lot of people, but I am one of the lucky few I guess. Just be sure to pound the heck out of this at first to get the powder moving, and then you are golden!

The only thing I don't like is the bottle, its hard to get the stopper back in. I love it on my lips, but I use if more over my eyeshadow to add a layer of sparkle for a night out. Give it a try, it really glitzes you up!
Fragrances -Parfums de Coeur - Juice Bar Cotton Candy fragrance

I started wearing this scent in high school, and I still love it over 10 years later. Its funny how people can remember what you smelled like way back when, but I run into old classmates and they do. Its always funny to see someones reaction when they first smell it on you. They are surprised at HOW much it really smells like it. It really does smell like warm, fresh cotton candy. I don't know how they get the "warm" scent in there, or how to explain it any better. You just have to smell for yourself!

Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Royal Jelly Eye Cream

I used to always have puffy eyelids when I woke up. My eye doctor told me it was allergies, even though I never suffered from any other type of allergies. But, when I started using this eye cream at night, my puffy itchy eyes disappeared. I love it and would recommend it to anyone who has itchy or puffy eyes in the morning.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

I know this product does not work for everyone, but I love it. I got a sample of it when I first started college, and I have been using it for the last eight years. When I use it religiously, I do not get zits at all. I never had bad skin, but this keeps everything at bay. It dissolves off my makeup without drying out my face. As long as you use hot water, it works great, and is a refreshing pick me up. The hot water and orange scent are like 5 minutes at the spa. I follow it with the rosewater toner and radiance moisturizer. I remember having to look all over Houston for the few stores that carried Burts Bees, and now it is everywhere and the price is lower. I guess thats what came about when Clorox bought them out a few years ago.
At first I just had the face moisturizer. My boyfriend loves the way it smells. When I would come to bed he would always tell me I smelled good, he said it reminds him of tea. Then I found the body lotion with the same scent. I LOVE it.
I was walking down the Strand in Galveston a few years ago (long before Ike) and my boyfriend, (who is NOT into girly things at all, he's a man's man) asked if I had smelled the candle burning next door to the shop we were in, and if he pointed it out, I knew it must be something special :) We went in to look and it was Tyler Candle Co's "French Market." It has been my absolute favorite scent ever. It smells good even when it is not burning. When I was looking it up online, I found a couple of other people who had also discovered it along the Strand in Galveston. Its scent description is tuberose and gardenia, but you have to smell it to see what I am talking about. Their others are amazing as well :)
