This is the only shimmery light champagne lipgloss I could find in any brand (the only other one I could find was Maybelline, which does not compare to this one, pigmentation and lasting-wise) and I am very impressed by this one! The pigmentation and shimmer is fantastic and it lasts a long time! It goes on as a shimmery light champagne-peach. Fruity smell. Gorgeous!
Lotions/ Creams -Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment

I bought this hoping it would be my HG lip balm, but the day after I started wearing it, I now have terrible cystic acne breakouts around my lips and chin :( it did moisturize my lips very well but I haven't broken out like this before ever around my mouth so I think this is the reason why. My Neosporin Lip Health overnight treatment is very good and doesn't seem to break me out, I'll stick to that. But if Aquaphor doesn't make you break out, it definitely moisturizer very well. Now if only I could clear up and get rid of the scars that will be left. :(
My HG mascara! Great thick rich formula that applies easily, great brush that really grabs hold of lashes - this is the most lengthening mascara I have ever tried, and is also volumizing. Will repurchase the waterproof Lash Out again and again!

I have combination/acne prone skin, and this foundation makes my skin look better after I wear it! I wish it had a little heavier coverage, but with concealer and powder, I get pretty good coverage. I have been using this for years with good results and will continue to purchase!
I fell in love with this perfume the moment I smelled it - beautiful mix of roses, rum, warm amber and vanilla. So warm, feminine, and relaxing. And my boyfriend absolutely LOVES it, ladies. :) Other men have told me they love this one too, so I would categorize this as a "man-catcher" fragrance! :) I only wish that they would put a little lid on the "to-go" $44 size, so that when I carry it in my purse, I don't have to put it in a baggie to prevent leaking. I highly recommend this fragrance if you like warm, feminine, vanilla-based, "man-magnet" perfumes!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Vive Pro Hydra Gloss very dry/damaged hair

I have been using this conditioner for years, and I love it! It is the most moisturizing drugstore conditioner I have been able to find. In addition, it smells good, and the packaging is good - pretty easy to get most of the product out of the bottle. The only store that sells it around here is my Walgreens (wish they sold it at more stores). I will go back to this again and again!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - EverPure Moisture Conditioner

I don't take time to write reviews very often, but I have to share that this conditioner did NOT work for me. I understand it works great for some people, but not me - left my hair a mess. I bought it because the store did not have my usual favorite (L'Oreal Vive Pro for Very Dry/Damaged Hair, which is great for me). This conditioner left my hair flat, without volume, frizzy, and fly-away. And the rosemary/mint smell, which I thought I would like, stays on my hair forever (like another reviewer mentioned) and smells like strong pine - way too masculine, ugh. I understand that sulfates work for some people and not others, and I guess I'm one of the people who needs sulfates in my conditioner, maybe? Also, I thought the soft bottle would be easy to squeeze product out of, but it was not easy for me (not as easy as L'Oreal Vive Pro). It gets one star because my hair did feel soft, but I will not purchase again.
