A must have product for me. I use this every morning before brushing my teeth, and then I lick it off :P it freshens my breath and tastes like candy! After I use this and apply my balm for the day, my lips look and feel great. No flakes, no dryness. I highly recommend! If you don't like mint, they have other scents/flavors too!
I love the packaging of these lip butters and the way they make my lips feel! I have the Original, Caramel Cream, and Raspberry Rose butters. I will definitely pick up the Macadamia one once I find it in a store! The scented butters smell incredible, especially the Caramel Cream one - it reminds me of Bath and Body Works. The consistency is smooth and creamy. They all leave a bit of a whitish cast on the lips, but it's very subtle. At night I apply my Nivea - A Kiss of Milk and Honey balm and then top it off with a coat of the Raspberry Rose lip butter. I ALWAYS wake up with smooth, soft lips.
This balm has been keeping my dry winter lips super soft during the day and at night! I apply this before I put on my lip stick in the morning and it creates a super smooth base. At night I apply this under one of my Nivea Lip Butters. I wake up with very soft, smooth, non-flakey lips. I will definitely repurchase!
The absolute best treatment for hair before blow-drying or heat styling. I apply a small amount in my hand and work it through my damp hair, focusing on the ends. Once I am done blow-drying, I can see and feel the difference. My hair looks smoother, shinier, and is oh so soft. It's a bit on the pricey side, but I only use it when I apply heat to my hair. When I air dry my hair, I prefer to use leave in conditioners that repair and replenish (this product kind of coats the hair). If you want your hair to look like it could be in a Pantene commercial, apply this before heat styling!!!
I won't repurchase this again because I think CHI Silk Infusion works better, but this product it a nice one to apply in damp hair before blow drying or heat styling. It will diminish your frizz, and leave your hair very soft. One thing it does beat CHI on is the SCENT! This one smells more feminine to me.
Whenever my skin is going through a horrible time and I can't use my usual cleansers and face scrubs, I use this. This cleanser will not dry out your face, or leave it oily. It has a light scent to it, and a runny liquid-y texture. It will clean off any residue you have on your skin without stripping the natural oils or irritating your face. If you have very sensitive skin or your skin is very very dry and you can't use your normal cleansers - give this one a try. I always have the big size of it with the pump under my skink for when I need it!!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Overall, a great primer for oily lids. After you apply it, it's a bit sticky - which makes it a good base. It definitely makes my eyeshadows (cream AND powder) stay in place all day. I haven't tried many eye primers, so once I am out of this one I think I will try the NARS one.
Coconut oil is such a great product to have in your kitchen AND bathroom! I use a small amount to take my eye-makeup off at night, and every Sunday I mix Coconut and Olive oil together and deep condition my hair overnight. As a moisturizer it really penetrates the skin - but you have to be patient because it takes FOREVER to sink in. Also, I eat a TBSP of Coconut oil a day! It has a lot of anti-bacterial properties and is loaded with good essential fatty acids!
Pressed Powders -Maybelline - Dream Matte Pressed Powder

I sooooo wanted to love this product! So many of my friends use it, and they always look wonderful. However, even in the lightest shade this powder made me turn orange - it is waay to dark for me. Maybelline - PLEASE MAKE A LIGHTER SHADE OF THIS!!! Everything about this product is WONDERFUL except the color range!

This is a must have item if you wear any type of mascara! It de clumps lashes super quickly and leaves them clean looking (not gunky). In combination with my "They're Real" mascara, I get asked all the time if I'm wearing falsies!
I love these two oils used together as a hair mask! I apply this every Sunday night, and leave it on overnight. When I wash it out on Monday morning, my hair is smooth and sleek without being weighed-down. Make sure you get VIRGIN or EXTRA-VIRGIN Olive and Coconut Oil for the best results.
This is a very nice foundation for the drugstore price. The color selection is good, and the staying power is basically unbeatable. A little goes a long way with this product, and I really like the little jar it comes in (even though it's not very sanitary). My only complaint - if I have any dry spots on my face, this foundation will focus in on them making me look a bit cakey..that being said, if you use a really nice moisturizer and primer before applying, you shouldn't have this problem. I recommend for oily and combination skin types!
Foundations -Cover Girl - Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation

If you have oily or combination skin, give this a try! It has a wonderful matte finish, and requires waaaay less powder to set it with. If you have dry skin - I would skip this foundation..If I have any dry patches on my face and I apply this foundation - it shows up like crazy!! Also, if you do plan on purchasing - get a shade lighter!! I bought the lightest shade, and it still leaves a bit of an orange cast once applied :/
Conditioner -TiGi - Bed Head Urban Antidotes Level 2 Recovery

I switched to this shampoo and conditioner after my Dove - Nourishing Oil Care shampoo and conditioner stopped working on my hair. My hair was feeling blah and a little dry so I picked this up. So glad I did! It gave my hair the moisture it had lost - back and leaves it very soft and bouncy. It smells wonderful too!! The only thing I would change about this conditioner is the size of the bottle it comes in! The shampoo is bigger than the CO - and I always run out of this first. Totally recommend to anyone who's hair is not liking this dry winter!!
