Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

The first time I picked this up in a department store, I didn't know know what to expect. As far as I remember, this is the first cuticle cream I've tried and I love it! The downside is, because it's the only cuticle cream I have tried I can't do a comparison to other cuticle creams on the market but this will have to suffice. It's very moisturizing and rich. In general I've developed a habit of either keeping a hand or cuticle cream on me at all times so whenever I'm bored or want my hands to be in the best condition they can - I whip out the Burt's Bees lemon butter cuticle cream. It has lasted me a long time. I'm more or less half way though and it's been a year since I first started using this product. Burt's Bees isn't a cheap brand but I don't expect it to be because of the whole organic thing they have going on, haha! Downside: I have to wait a bit for the cuticle cream to soak in, otherwise my cuticles are oily and I don't want to touch anything. This is a pretty minor issue to me though. Don't have any major complaints about the packaging, but I don't feel that it's the best it can be.
Eyeliner -MAC - Penultimate Eye Liner - Rapidblack

I love liquid eyeliners in general, especially in pen form, so you can imagine my excitement when I saw that MAC - a brand I was familiar and usually satisfied with - had one. I bought it immediately and boy, oh, boy what a disappointment! Upon first application it was fine but didn't seem ''Rapidblack'' or very intense at all. The application was quite easy sure, but definitely not worth the price. It smudged within 2 hours and was a nightmare to take off. In my opinion, if you are going to lash out and get a pen liquid eyeliner, the essence one which is dirt cheap compared to the MAC one will do wonders.
Gucci Gucci Guilty has easily become my favourite scent. It probably is more of a going out/ night scent, but I think you can wear it during the day-time as well! I wear it to school and don't think it's too much. I get lots of compliments on it, but you need to respray it for it to last which can get quite irritating.. Overall, I am nearly out of my bottle so I will definitely be repurchasing! I even have the lotion.
I really love this lip balm! I have heard a lot of good things about Kiehls in general, so when I saw that a high-end store which recently opened carried this brand - I automatically went to check out the products they had to offer. At first, I realized the price and it was quite expensive for a little tube of lip balm - 10 euro (that's about 14 US dollars). But you get what you pay for, right? This stuff is amazing! The first few times you apply it, it really moisturizes your lips and overall my lips are less chapped. Definite must for soft, kissable lips!
