I really love this sunscreen!! I've been using it on top of the Daily Moisture, and my skin feels so silky and smooth. Does not break me out or leave me greasy. I really like it on my chest and arms too, because I can't feel it on my skin all day. It feels kinda thick going on, but within seconds it sinks in and disappears. I also really like the smell of it. Its fresh and light, and reminds me of summer!! Will definetly repurchase!!
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Eucerin PLUS Intensive Repair Hand Creme

I actually work at a Dermatologist office and I grabbed a few sample tubes of this hand creme. WOW!!I was so surprised how soft and silky it made my hands. During the winter my hands get kind of red and irritated, but with this cream it sloughed off dead skin and kept them hydrated. I will say that if your hands are too irritated, this might sting a little, due to the AHA. Use something soothing first, then this. Anyway I was very impressed!!
This is such a great lip gloss. It actually has the color of a lipstick but the glossiness of a gloss. This is a wonderful raisin-berry color with subtle shimmer. They feel luxurious on the lips. I also love the light berry smell the Liquid lips have. Try them all!!
I love gloMinerlas eyeshadows.They have such pure pigments, and last all day. They really stay true to the color. I love the coppersheen trio. I also have Harvest, a shimmery mocha color, Orchid, a smokey violet color, and Diamond, a soft shimmery off white. My sister used to work for Chanel, so she was used to high end shadow pigments, and she was really impressed with the quality of glominerals shadows. If you try them, you wont be dissapointed!!
This blush is amazing. It is a beautiful pinky-peach color with little gold flecks in it. It is so universal and be used on so many skin tones. Also my good friend uses NARS Orgasm blush, and we were comparing blushes, The color is almost exact. But because minerals are more pigmented, I don't have to use nearly as much product as she does, and it has a more pure color, plus it last all day long. I am a blush freak, and I never need to reapply. She said as soon as she is finished she is going to switch. It cheaper, plus it also has SPF 18, due to the minerals. Everybody has to try this blush!!!
Masks -Skinceuticals - SkinCeuticals - Clarifying Clay Mask

I actually really liked this mask. I mixed it with a small amount of Simply Clean and a few drops of Intense Line Defense. It was not too drying and I really liked the slight tingle effect. When I washed it off, my skin felt refreshed and very soft. I like the fact that it doesn't dry hard, so its easy to remove. Will definitely use again!!
I used this concealer forever. It covered pretty well and felt nice on my skin. But alas my circles are just too darn dark, and I have moved on to Benefits B-O-I-N-G. But as backup I would definitely use this.
When I want to wear foundation, this is the best one. I use level 2, and it gives it that finished polished look, without feeling like I have globs of makeup on. Never breaks me out either. Definitely worth a try.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Sweet Pea Body Spray

A lovely body spray!! Smells wonderful and fades to soft floral scent. Best of all my husband is not allergic to it.
I love this concealer for my super dark circles. I use #2 on top of a soft yellow liquid concealer, and it really hides my circles. I find it best to use my finger to apply, because it helps warm it up so it doesn't look cakey. Be sure to be moisturized really well beforehand. This last forever too, I'm still on my first one, and its been over 6 months. Will definitely rebuy!!
I love this blush. I use it all over my face too. It is such a soft pink flattering color. I love the way it smells too. My face just looks fresh and glowy. I think the box is cute, but its not easy to carry in your purse.Thats the only bad thing. But who care this blush rocks!!
I love Cargo lipglosses.They feel really nice on my lips.Not sticky at all, but last pretty good on my lips. I like using the lighter pink shade on top of my lipstick to change the color. This is a definite repurchase item.
I was really hoping to like this mask due to the warming effect. But when I used it, I hated the smell. It felt really greasy. In fact when I was trying to get it out of the tube it came out all seperated.It was gross and runny. Well to make matters worse within 30 seconds of putting this on my skin, it started stinging and itching all over. I immediatley had to wash it off. I had to wash my face twice to get it off. It left my skin irritated and sensitive. I hardly ever react to any products so I was surprised. Will definitely not repurchase.
I love these creme shadows. I use Cafe au Lait all over my lid. It gives it a nice sheer golden beige color. It dries fast and NEVER CREASES. I like it alone, but I usually dust N.Y.C. Sparkle Dust in Smokey Topaz on top for a finished look. It looks great on my dark brown eyes. People are always asking me what eyeshadow I'm wearing and when I tell them they are amazed because its so cheap. Anyway this is my staple product!!
Self Tanners -SUN Laboratories - Ultra Dark Lotion
girlbythesea 1/11/2006 2:35:00 PM
This is my fave. sunless tanner. It smells really good, and doesn't really ever get that tanner smell. It is very thick and dark, kind of like chocolate pudding, so it makes it really easy to see where your applying it. Definelty use gloves for a more even application and to avoid staining your hands. Has a really great golden brown color. I have an olive complexion, and most tanner make me look orange, but not this one.Also last quite a while without fading funny. I have found my self tanner.
