I'll never forget when i first tried this. I was 13, and i tried one of those paper ads that come it the mail, and i was hooked. i loved it. at first it smelled kind of like a pretty warm baby powder. very smooth and warm and pretty. i didnt get that first thought of an "old lady" smell when i tried it. that never came to my mind. i just had to have it after that though and i begged my dad to get it for my birthday. when we went out to get it i also fell in love with coco mademoielle, so he got me that for christmas a year later. i think its best for the fall winter months, or just whenever you wanna feel extra special. i think with this you just HAVE to get the EP, or else your not doing it justice. its always going to be my HG.
i love this. i got it for christmas 2 years ago from my dad. i smells younger, which is nice because most chanel fragrances smell more mature. i got it when i was 15, and i got N5 when i was 14. i know younger women dont really like how a lot of chanel fragrances smell but i do and i think that mademoiselle is good for any age. love it.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel

ok so my thing with this is that at first when i bought i saw really good results, for about 2 weeks, but i had to really put it on like 3 times a day, so it kinda worked for a while. but then i started to so less and less results, and basically nothing, and it starts to really dry out your skin if you put it on the same spot over again, and i noticed that my the finger i always use to put in on, my middle finger, is peeling and dry on my finger tip!
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

ok well i can't say much right now about this product because i've only been using it for 2 days, but i can see a difference. first of all the reason i bought this is because of this: i was starting to beak out like crazy a few months ago and didn't know what to do, and i was trying every drugstore crap that got decent ratings on here, so what i first tried was Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel, which seemed to work well at first, but after like a week, it didn't seem to help as much, then i read good reviews about the Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash Daily Scrub, so i tried that and that seemed to help for about a month, but again just stopped doing well, and while doing all of this i always started with the cetaphil bar cleanser, so maybe i thought i needed a stronger cleanser, so i bought the Neutrogena oil-free acne wash, and thats when the problems really started. i after about a week i got small pimples all around my nose a cheek area, like 2 a day, just popping up everywhere! i never had skin like that in my life! and nothing seemed to make them go away, nothing, so i stopped using the acne wash, and the scrub for now, and went to Target and bought this Cetaphil, because i thought i needed something to give my skin a break, but still get rid of those horrible little zits. so after the first try i woke up with the pimples less visable and smooth, and almost gone really, so it really did the trick to put my skin back in neutral, at least, but i don't know if it will really make my skin better than it was before this mess. and right now after using it tonight my skin feels baby smooth, something i haven't felt in a while! it's really soft! so thats it.
Lip Gloss -Maybelline - Shine Seduction [DISCONTINUED]

i bought this today because i liked my sister's, i chose nude glow 620, a pretty tan nude with no shimmer, and i love it. I normally don't like click pens but this one is ok because there isn't an annoying fabric at the tip, just the plastic, so it goes on smooth. i got mine at target for 5.99 so it's a great deal. will repurchase in a bunch of colors.
This does exactly what i says, it dries the nails in a good 2 minutes, it's great BUT it's expensive. sucks.
I love this when you look at your nose after you use it you might not see obvious results but you have to look really closely at the strip sideways and you all those gross little things that clog your pores standing up all over it!
love it. the pigment is really nice, is highly pigmented, but not like m.a.c., but it's almost a good thing because it way easier to use since it dosent go on so strong, it perfect.
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Eye Expressions Palette

I really love this, really nice creamy smooth texture, not too thick, it's just perfect. Im not quite sure how to use the illuminator yet, using my fingers didn't really work out so i guess i need a sponge, and it's a really nice bronzer, would be really nice for the summer time, it gives that dewy kinda moist j.lo glow. really nice. i love it. and the packaging isnt bad. I like the huge mirror.
Okay so I told my mom to buy this today because of all the good reviews and yes, it lives up to the hype. I was comparing it to my Lancome shadows and it's so much better. It's no MAC, which i think it's the best, but it pretty much beats every other depatment store brand of eyeshadows that i've tried. But you just have to try it. Only 4.99. And if you like this then you have to try the Eye Expressions, there cream shadows and go on like butter.
Cleansers -Softsoap - Softsoap 2-in-2 Antibacterial Plus Real Moisturizing lotion

I just opened this bottle yesterday because i needed my other bottle to finish. I was using a target brand called Method handsoap and it was so drying, it felt horrible, then i opened this and WOW like complete opposites. So creamy and this and smells great. I love it.
Okay, I ordered my Proactiv from QVC since it seemed safer to me and my mom, because we read that when you order by phone or online and you don't like it it's impossible to get your money back, and you are automatically registered in thier club or whatever, so they send it to you over and over, and that it's hard to cancel. I ordered a six piece set, with products I didn't even use. What I did use was the three step, cleaner, toner and lotion, and I tried the Oil Free Moisterizer, the Green Tea Moistuizer, and the refining mask, only once though. So when I first tried it, it was before I went to bed. My skin felt great, soft and smooth, and really clean, so I was excited. It was like this for the first maybe four days, then my skin got really dry, so I opened the green tea stuff, thats supposed to be for really dry skin. It did nothing for my dry skin. I also tried the oil free moister, that did also did nothing. So my face was really dry and it was peeling and flaking, so I went back to my aveeno lotion, and my dry skin went away. BUT then, about 3 days ago my face started to get REALLY itchy, around the hairline. I didn't see anything till about 2 days ago there was this weird itchy rash spot on my forehead, but went away the next day. SO.. the worst thing happened this morning, I wake up and my face is RED and RASHY all over!! It's horrible! I mean it's not disfiguring or anything, but more like a red small rash, no bumps just a little bit raised and VERY red. And its ALL over my face. The last time I used the proactiv was two nights ago, since my face was so itchy. HORRIBLE. Im returning it to QVC. The advertisment says it's fine for the most sensative skin. BIGGEST LIE. If you have sensative skin DO NOT TRY THIS. The ingredient Benzyol Peroxide is too strong. Biggest regret ever.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Aveeno Clear Complexion Foaming Cleanser

I was using this cleanser from about 4 years ago to just recently. When I first tried it my face was in good shape, then as I got older I started to breakout more often, but if I did the cleanser seemed to get rid of it in a few days. My face was always pretty much clear until recently maybe around a year ago, I would break out and the pimples would just stay there, like the cleanser just stopped working on me. So I got sick of buying when it didn't even work. Then I got on proactiv, that was a nightmare. So I don't know, it worked for like 3 years then nothing, my skins feels like crap now, used to be very nice.
