One of my staples in my fragrance collection! Beautiful powdery scent on me. Get lots of compliments when I wear this. Beautiful bottle! Sophiscated scent. Great for day or night. I layer this with the body lotion. Pretty good staying power.

My HG eyemakeup remover. Takes everything off including waterproof eyeliner & mascara. Does not burn or sting my eyes. Great packaging. You get a lot for the money. No scent. Overall grea product! I always buy it.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes

Love this product! They really do take off all your makeup including waterproof stuff. Not a bad scent, super light. Non drying. Soft cloths. Don't break me out. I think they are even helping with that. And they DO come in a plastic dispensing tub. The soft package is the refill. Great for removing my theatrical/film makeup when I'm acting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! Will definitely repurchase!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Acne Stress Control Foam Wash

This didn't do anything for me. There's only 2 things I like about it. The smell (very nice & herbal) but I usually prefer unscented skincare, & the packaging (foaming pump). It felt like I was putting on useless foam on my face. And it was useless. I have over 3/4 of a bottle left if anyone wants to trade for it. Will not repurchase.
Didn't really do anything for me. I've had pretty decent skin my whole life until recently. Now I have severe back & chest acne. This didn't really help. Not sure if it made it worse either. Smells fine. Good packaging. Price is ok. Not repurchasing. Going to a derm for help.
This is becoming a HG fragrance for me! I bought the smallest bottle to try it. Now I'm going to have to get the big one! And pray they don't discontinue it. I love warm florientals. This is definitely in that category. Great for going out but I wear it during the day & get tons of compliments. Everyone knows I'm the fragrance girl, wearing something unique. This is high on my list!!!
Lip Gloss -Three Custom Color Specialists - Lip Gloss

I have this in Beautopia. LOVE IT! Perfect color. Your lips only better. Definitely an everyday shade. I wear this with a little mascara & I'm out the door. It feels marvelous. Not sticky at all. Smooth, like Vaseline or Carmex. You will have to reapply, but you do that with most glosses anyway. My HG lipgloss!
I guess I'm in the minority. I really like this product. I had a facial recently at my favorite spa. The facialist used this during & recommended it to me. I decided to buy it. So far so good. I like the cooling tingle sensation. It seems to help calm & heal my blemishes very quickly. I like that I can wear it during the day (unlike my Mario Badescu pink healing lotion, which I can only use at night). I took off 1 lippie because of the price (kinda high for such a small amount) & that you have to wait for a while for it to dry before putting on aything else over it. EDIT 01.09.07-Swapped this. It's not really working for me. The tea tree oil in it would be good for cuts & scrapes, but I would just buy much cheaper Neosporin. And my regular OTC persa-gel is fine for breakouts. Oh well. Hope the person I swapped with can use it.
An HG product! I only use it about 2-3 times/wk. You don't need much. I wake up to smoother refreshed skin. Especially after a bad break out session. The redness calms down & it fades dark or pink spots on my face so well.
Cleansers -Mario Badescu - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

One of my HG facial cleansers! I have combo/acne prone/sensitive skin. I can't use products with too much of a fragrance on my face, so MB is perfect for me. Takes off my makeup (including eye makeup). Makes my skin feel refreshed & smooth. Definitely helps clear my acne. Love the simple packaging. MB always sends great samples with every order. Price is great. Not drug store prices, but not super expensive either. I use this in the morning & the MB Botanical Facial Gel at night.

It's ok. Does make my skin smooth, like primer. Wears well under makeup & alone. Don't really know if this is making a difference in my skin yet. I got a sample with my order from Sephora, so it's pretty small. But the smell is horrendous!! It's like sweaty smelly feet after running twenty miles in wet tennis shoes. Nasty!!
