Wearable Coral kit includes a liner, gloss and lipstick. I really like this kit as coral has always done well one me in general. According to the kit, you can mix and match to create a number of looks, which I have found to be true in experimenting. However, I will say that none of the combo's I have discovered so far is a "soft" coral. This kit is very bright, not tacky, but not exactly subtle either. The kit was $30 which for some may be a bit pricey but I have been known to hand over $26 for gloss alone, so all in all it seems like a decent buy. The lipstick is great quality, smooth and not at all heavy. The gloss is not at all sticky and has no taste. If corals work for you in general, I would recommend it. It may be too bright for some though.
Ahhh. . .Burt's Bee's Avacado Hair Treatment. I have had mixed results. The first time I used it I followed the directions perfectly (shampooing AFTER treatment) and it took about 10 days of washings to get the product out of my hair. Swore I would never use it again. A year or so later a friend raved about it so I got brave and tried it again. This time I LOVE it! I use between a nickel and a quarter sized amount for my shoulder length layered hair. I work it through my hair at the beginning of my shower. . .leave in for 10 minutes or so and then wash out ususally with Aveda Rosemary Mint or Biolage Energy Shampoo. Usually wash twice, running hands through sudsy hair to fully remove product. Afterwords my hair is super shiny and full with lots of volume. I use the Avacado Butter about 2-3X a week.

Really love this stuff. Adds volume and texture to hair after blow out, is also great to use for curls. Sometimes I sleep in rag rollers .. .when I use this first the curls come out soft and last all day. One jar will last forever, I use it nearly every day and have had the same jar for almost a year. I will definitely repurchase when it runs out.
Lip Treatments -Neutrogena - Lip Nutrition Berry Smooth Balm

Overall I really like this because my lips chap easily. This product exfoliates the dry chapped skin and softens my lips nicely. My lips can be a complete mess in the morning and after applying a couple of times throughout the day, by night they are completely healed. Cons are packaging, balm is gooey and has jojoba beads so getting it out of the jar can be a real mess. Hasn't stopped me from repurchasing though.
Received a sample of this and when I first began to apply it I thought it was great, as it does fill fine lines and imperfections quite nicely. However after I applied my foundation, every time I touched my face the foundation kind of flaked off, looked almost like peeling skin from a sunburn. I may try it again, but I am glad I didn't buy this.
I received a sample of this today at the spa I go to. I am glad I didn't have to buy this. There are no positive or negative visual effects but my face itches like crazy! I will not be using the remaining sample tubes.
I purchased this conditioner on the recommendation from a friend who claimed it to be HG quality. Before trying this conditioner I could easily get two days out of a shampoo if pressed for time in the morning. Not when using this conditioner. My normally dry hair looks greasy by the end of day one (even when only applying conditioner from nape down) and there is something about using this product that causes odors (such as smoke, polluntants etc) to just cling to my hair. Will not repurchase and likely will be gifting this product to the friend who loves it.
Cool creamy easy to apply aquablush that gives the appearance of a sun kissed look especially when used to enhance Chantecaille Blush in Delight. Somewhat disappointed with the packaging on this particular tube. . . this is not my first Aquablush but it is the first one I have had packaging problems with. The inner seal of the top portion has come unglued from the exterior. . . so the caps tend to separate when opening. For a $50.00 blush, I expect better packaging. I have no complaints about the color or quality of makeup though. The color is a light bronze that looks very natural for summer months.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

Love love love this amazing natural cleanser! One of my all time favorite products. Smells wonderful and rinses clean without drying my skin. Highly recommended.
The original aspirin mask recommendation is too harsh for my dry skin, however I give the IDEA itself a 3 cause it saved a very expensive mosturizing cleanser that I had previously been unable to use. Every time I used my Chanel cleanser my face broke out, however crushing up an aspirin or two and mixing them with the cleanser has made my skin incredibly soft while still feeling clean. Once the Chanel cleanser is gone though, I likely won't be crushing any more aspirin.
Love this shade! I use Rose Quartz as an eye base and it is wonderful. I apply a little Perle at the brow bone to help open my eyes up a little. The Rose helps to brighten tired looking eyes in the morning. I rarely wore eye makeup before purchasing this, and now I am wearing this everyday! I have received quite a few compliments. Very happy with purchase.
Gorgeous color, very natural looking. I agree with the other reviewer that it is more peachy than pink. This product is pricey but I will repurchase. Received this as part of the Spring Look Secret Garden package, and the more I use it, the more I like it.

This stuff is horrible, if you want it I will send it to you. Followed the directions to the letter and 10 days later I was STILL trying to get all of this cr*p out of my hair. Lesson learned.
Treatments -Redken - Extreme Anti Snap [REFORMULATED]
makeupreview 4/18/2006 6:10:00 PM
This has become a HG for me. Regular rinse out conditioners as well as other leave in type products are too heavy for my fine fly-away hair. Anti-Snap does an excellent job of detangling without adding weight. Keeps my hair smooth and frizz free. Took this with me all the way to Jamaica for a wedding. Have been using for over two years now. Love it!
Cleansers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Cleansing Pads
makeupreview 4/18/2006 5:57:00 PM
exfoliating side is way too harsh to use more than once in a great while and then only very carefully. agree with other reviewers who said the pad is oversized. i actually was able to use the pad in the shower and exfoliate my whole body, if that helps to give you an idea as to size/roughness. had high hopes for this product as i generally like aveeno. will not likely purchase again.
