Darn, I really wanted to love this. I admit, I got sucked in by all the hype and just had to try it, I'm so glad that I bought the purse size instead of the full size. First of all, it reeks. My husband even asked what I put in my hair, and believe me, he dosen't usually notice those things. Secondly, the mini can lasted a week. I'm not a hairspray fanatic or anythind, a mini can usually lasts me a month. Thirdly, it held my bangs for about 2 seconds. The only redeeming quality about this spray is that it dosen't leave your hair crunchy. That's about it. My quest for the perfect hairspray continues.

This is a decent serum, and one of the only ones I've tried that does not make my hair feel greasy. I have damaged processed hair so I really loved that this product seriously cut down drying time. It could have done more for my frizziesthough. All in all a decent buy.
OPI is simply the most amazing nail polish out there! It goes on smooothly with no air bubbles or little clots. It layers beautifully and dries quickly leaving a nice shine. Once applied, it lasts and lasts, I'm on week 2 and my tootsies still look amaxing.
This is the most amazing lip gloss known to man! And believe me, I've tried them all.

Blah. For a buck, you really get what you pay for. It made my brows feel crispy and there was barely any product in the tube.
I'm obsessed with this scent! I have the solid perfume in a tin, perfect for me because I can take it everywhere. I love the orangy blast of citrus in the top notes, but the creamy floral base notes are the best. I really want to buy this fragrance in other forms, like the spray EDT.
Holy cats, how did demeter capture the scent of wet asphalt?! This is a crazy- weird scent, it really does smell like being in the city during a rainstorm! Personally, I do not like to wear it, but use it as a room spray instead, especially when storms are in the forecast. If you want to try a scent that is truly unique and wayyy off the beaten path, you may want to try this. Hint- I bought it at a perfume discount place for $5!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Strawberries and Champagne Spray

Mmmm, I love this light flirty fragrance. I first got it as a gift about 12 years ago and recently rediscovered it while shopping at VS. For some reason it smells like it's been reformulated, but it could just be me. This will be a lovely fragrance to wear in the warmer months that are coming up, as it isn't too strong like some VS fragrances.
Ok, I love this stuff. Usually I don't gravitate towards extremely fruity scents and tend to prefer something more sophisticated. That being said, I think this fragrance is wonderful! I wear it when I want to feel youthful and sexy and want to take a break from my more :"serious" perfumes. Caution, this scent is STRONG and just a little bit will last all day, giving you a lot of bang for your buck. I've worn this for years and it will always have a place in my heart.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Sensual Amber EDT

Meow! This is one sexy fragrance! As a former BBW employee I've pretty much tried every fragrance the company has put out and sensual amber is my favorite by far. First of all, it smells expensive, much like a high end perfume. It's got an exotic sweetness to it, not the usual BBW whitefloral/fruity sweetness, but something deeper and darker. When it dries down, you get a sexy amber sandalwood-y base that lasts all day. This is a heavier perfume so I typically wear it in the colder months, however, it would be perfect to wear on a sultry summer night as well. This is not your usual BBW fragrance at all, not sugary sweet and marketed to 15 year olds..this is a big girl fragrance! If you've never tried it before, head out to your local BBW and give it a try, it really is amazing!
This one's a classic. I know there are wayyyy better exfoliators on the market nowadays, we've come a long way since st ives apricot scrub was the gold standard, yet I always seem to have a tube on hand to use once in a while. The grains are large and scratchy, probably not something you'd want to use frequently or on sensitive skin. What can I say, this product reminds me of my mother in the early 80's and it will always have a place in my heart.
words cannot describe how much i love this cleansing oil! i was skeptical at first (wash my face with an oil??) but holy cats, am i glad i tried it! surprizingly enough, it has cleared up my adult acne better than any other non prescription product i've ever used,it removes all my makeup, rinses clean and leaves my skin smooth as a baby's butt! I can even skip moisturizer when I use this. If you've ever been curious, TRY THIS!! it will soon become a favorite that you won't want to live without!
The people at proactive need to be called out on their crap. The products are horrible, and you can get cleansers and moisturizers at the drugstore that have the exact same concentration of benzoyl peroxide (if you really want to use that) and wont burn your face off for a heck of a lot less money. Their before and after pics are bogus and misleading...the "afters" look like someone who did accutaine therapy for about 9 months, as no benzoyl peroxide products are going to wipe out severe cystic acne.
Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles
lucygoosey74 4/1/2012 11:29:00 PM
personally, i love this product. I've had dark circles under my eyes my whole life and have practically tried every concealer known to man, adn this one is a winner! The texture is light and smooth so it glides on easily, it even contains caffiene to help deflate those bags. I like the puff tip as well, i use both the puff tip and my fingertips to diffuse the pigment and give me natural looking coverage The rule to follow here is LESS IS MORE! seriously.It will goop up and crease if you don't apply the correct amount so start small, you can always add some more if you don't get enough coverage. Set with a little translucent powder and you're good to go!
wow, i used to use this mask back in the day and loved it! I had no idea it was still around.
