Love this polish. It is a pretty rosey pink, almost a soft terracotta color. Looks pretty with light green or greys...anyway...the formula is great. I wore it without any base or top coat and it didn't chip for quite a few days. Just touched it up today after having applied it about two weeks ago! Dries fast...Great neutral color. The price is great!

I don't usually buy B&BW for myself, but this one I did. I tried it on in the store because the name and label caught my eye. I loved it instantly, and so did my husband, which means a lot because he's picky about fragrances. It's a light, warm, fruity, vanilla fragrance with a bit of sweetness. It definitely puts me in a good mood whenever I wear it.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter - Berry Smoothie

I've been wanting to try these new lip butters since they first came out. At first, I had trouble finding a good color, as there wasn't a huge selection. I have very fair skin which leans a bit cool--so I don't want to go too dark or bright. This shade is the best fit for me--it's not too sheer or too cool, even with a name like "berry smoothie". It's not really too purpley, just a nice mauve/berry shade, and makes my green eyes just shine. It feels rich and smooth when you put it on. Will definitely like to buy it again!
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Moonlight Path Body Splash

I got the fragrance mist as a Christmas gift. At first, I was a little unsure to try it, because sometimes B&BW scents are too much for me, although I like Japanese Cherry Blossom. I just tried the Moonlight Path out for the first time today, and I really like it! It has a soft, "smooth" scent, and smells of lavender, which I like. I feel very girly while wearing it--it would make a nice Valentine's Day fragrance. I'm thinking of buying the body lotion too!
Shampoo -Suave - Naturals Tropical Coconut Shampoo & Conditioner

This is my favorite Suave scent. Also a great shampoo. I use it every day and my hair looks great!
Most toothpastes make the insides of my mouth burn and break out in a rash. Tom's of Maine is one that does not sting in my mouth. I'm not sure why. It is pricey, but I guess it's a small price to pay to have a painless tooth-brushing experience. I've gotten so used to the taste that now other toothpastes taste really bad! I appreciate that it is for the most part, a natural product.
I don't care for this lip balm. First of all, it is very hard. It tugs on my lips as I apply it! Plus, the shimmer side is a bit *too* shimmery, which makes it look a little bumpy on my lips. It works if you layer it over a moisturizing lip balm--but I don't think I'll get it again, since it feels so dry.
Finally, I've found a lip balm that lasts longer than 15 minutes, doesn't make my chapped lips *worse*, and goes on without any tugging or "gunkiness"! My lips get really bad in winter, to the point of bleeding, that is. This lip balm really does the job of soothing the dryness and flaking. Love this--it's seriously the best lip balm!
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

This is my favorite lotion. It's not greasy or tacky. It goes on so smoothly. Another plus is it lasts for a long time! I've also used a (tiny) bit on my face as a night moisturizer! Really good quality too, much better quality even than some of the pricier lotions I have.

I really like this concealer. It literally blends right into my skin tone so it doesn't look so "concealer-ish" under my eyes. It is also light coverage, so it doesn't feel like it's caked on. I use the foundation as well, and have loved it so far.
This is the only soap I use to clean myself--face, body, even hair! It is so economical, and gentle on my skin. I use the "sensitive skin" version that is unscented. I also appreciate not having to have just another plastic bottle in the shower. Every time I use it, my skin is very soft and soothed.
Gels/Soaps -Suave - Naturals Moisturizing Body Wash in Ocean Breeze

Love this wash! Overly creamy washes break me out so this is great for cleansing my body acne prone skin. Nice scent too.
Styling Products -L'Oreal - Out of Bed Weightless Texturizer
kohana 7/10/2011 3:46:00 PM
Meh. It's a little too sticky, and didn't feel too nice in my hair. It doesn't feel natural, too "product-y" I've had better luck with other products that make my hair feel like there's nothing in it. In a pinch, it's fine, but not really interested in buying again.
This is the best volumizer I've ever used. Mousse leaves my hair sticky--as it's very fine and has no body. The phomollient lifts my hair without stickiness. It is awesome I love it and use it every day!
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Full Potential Lips Plump and Shine gloss in Peach Plump

It is too thick and sticky for my taste. The color is so pretty, but I have equally pretty glosses that don't feel like my lips have glue on them!
