I have to start out by saying how surprised I was with this product. I have been switching back and forth between L’Oreal’s Sublime Glow and Dove's Energy Glow. I love Sublime Glow because it gives me the most realistic brown color, and Dove's version because it smells so much better and is a thicker lotion. I picked up a bottle of the Healthy Body Glow mainly because I had a coupon for it which only made the lotion a little over $3 at Wal-Mart. Since it was a cheaper Vaseline product I didn't really have high hopes for it. I stand corrected. It gives me a great bronze-brown color, and doesn't seem to smell as bad as the typical self tan lotion. (Still not as good as Dove though) Not only is the Vaseline version half the price, it weighs 2 ounces more than the L’Oreal and the Dove! I have been using it on my face without break out. If you are looking to self tan on a budget, I really suggest this product. Will continue to purchase.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Tinted Lip Balm [DISCONTINUED]

I love this product! I recently found them at CVS for half off, and had coupons. I purchased #10 Glow and #80 Pure, and ended up going back a couple of days later for #30 Sunny, #40 Nude, #50 Natural, and # 70 Fresh. These have the moisture of a balm, glide on like a lipstick, and have the look of a lip gloss. So far I have yet to purchase a shade that I wasn't pleased with. Plus, these are great all year round. They have the moisture that you need in the winter, and also provide SPF 20 for the summertime! The staying power dosen't last long, but they are a lip balm, so I wasn't expecting them to. Give these a try, they really are a great product. I can't believe that I haven't found these before now!
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - HIP Brilliant Shine Lip Gloss-Dreamer

Way too much glitter! I love the HIP glosses and have a few of them, and this is the only one I've purchased and didn't like. If you like the way this color looks in the tube, try Adoring. It's a little darker, but has more pigment and just the right amount of glitter. Glad I bought this at a BOGO sale.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Vanilla Bean Noel Body Lotion

One of my absolute favorite Bath and Body Works products! I have never liked any lotion, body spray, ect. that has vanilla in it, but I love this vanilla caramel scent. Great staying power as well. I always make sure to pick up a couple of bottles around the holidays to last me throughout the year.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Body Lotion-normal to dry skin
linzlou182 1/11/2007 5:15:00 PM
In my opinion, the best drug store lotion that you can buy. It's always on sale, and there are dollar off coupons in the Sunday paper. It moisturizes quite well, and has a subtle sparkle. This lotion has a nice, clean smell that the Olay website describes as a "lively apricot scent". I will repurchase when my bottle runs out.
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Colour Riche Lip Gloss--all shades

I purchased mine in soft nude from a new display at CVS for $7.99. I am a medium toned brunette who is always looking for a good nude gloss or lip color and I am very pleased with this one. I also think this color has the capability to look good on many different skin tones! This gloss is not sticky and also has a nice subtle sparkle to it. I would also compare this gloss to the Revlon Super Lustrous line, but the L'Oreal Colour Riche glosses don't have that nasty, bitter taste that you get with the Revlon. This comes in a cute package with the doe foot applicator, and in a nice selection of colors. Update 1.11.07: I also purchased this in Rich Rose for practically nothing on Ebay. It's very similar to the discontinued Glam Shine shade in Debut, which I loved as well.
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Temptations Crazy Caramel Corn Lip Gloss

Love It! In my opinion, this gloss is the best tasting in the temptations line. The only downside is that it has no pigment. Don't purchase it if you want to use the gloss by itself. I use mine over another lipcolor. It adds moisture and gold sparkle to your lipstick, and of course a great taste.
