I started out with the smaller version of Aruba which was $15. The ladies in Sephora literally saved my life on the day of my prom with a self tanning mishap and that's how I ended up with this. I love the way the bronzer translates on my pale skin, obviously I don't use a lot of it daily, just on the hollows of my cheekbones, temples, jawline, and neck. When I ran out of the bronzer 3 months later I found the sun disk in Aruba for $5 dollars more. I still have it a year later, it's almost gone though. But still. An amazing high quality bronzer that lasts me for a year and is 20 bucks? Fabulous. The shimmer isn't obvious at all either, which was my one and only worry.
I love this highlighter and it's a definite must for finishing my look every day. I understand if you have a heavy hand with it you're probably not going to like this product. A little goes a longgggg way. I started off trying the sample with my 100 points from sephora and loved it. That tiny thing lasted me 3 months. It's the perfect luminosity and a peachy sheen for my skin, I use it on my cheek bones, my brow bones and just a tiny bit on the bridge of my nose. It blends really nicely and it really makes a difference.
Cleansers -Garnier - Nutritioniste Nutri-Pure Daily Exfoliating Gel Cleanser

This product has quickly become my new favorite cleanser. I have very dry sensitive skin and as the weathers getting cold I have noticed my skin getting more dried out. So I went looking for a good exfoliater that was gentle enough to use morning and night. This gel is perfect it gets all my makeup and dry skin off with a cooling sensation and it smells like peppermint and aloe. It's not harsh on my skin and I can use it daily.
Self Tanners -Jergens - natural glow express medim/tan

First off, I have very fair skin, I can't even turn a sunburn to tan. I had been skeptical at first of this product but decided to try it after using the medium to tan jergens revitalizing, which the only downside to that was that it took 4 or 5 daily uses to build a nice color. The Express version is amazing, in one application I get the same color as I would after a spray tan. The only issue I have is that it goes on with no color and so you don't know if you missed any spots for a few hours which may be too late, but with some practice it's not a problem.
