I LOVE THIS STUFF! I use this scrub every other day or every two days. I first cleanse with a gentle cleanser like Noxema Original and then i gently rub this into my moistened face. Then i rinse with cold water and moisturize lightly. My skin looks so glowing and fresh for several days afterward! This is my favorite facial treatment and I hope everyone will try it!

I really loved this cream to powder shadow. It was a bit too shimmery in the sun, but i'm getting used to it. The packaging is a little finicky but the price is great! I got this for 5 dollars at CVS (.2 ounces/ 6 grams). Mac paints are 15 dollars and .23 ounces! I didn't see a huge quality differance, so i'm sticking with almay. Also an added bonus is that almay is really good for sensitive skin!
Shampoo -Garnier - Garnier Fructis Shampoo/ Conditioner for Normal Hair

I love this stuff! The shampoo is creamy and cleansing at the same time, a rare combo! The conditioner leaves my hair smooth and managable. The bottles don't bother me, I can pop them open with the pad of my thumb easily. I just shampoo, rinse, condition -2 1/2 minutes rinse. This is a great system and I'll keep using it untill I find something better. UPDATE: NOVEMBER 18 2004- found somthing better! Ditched it for Avalon Organics shampoo in rosemary with tea tree oil and FrizEase condition (the one if the tall purple bottle). If find this new combo to be more moisturizing.
This strange scent came in a cute clear bottle with a purple flip up cap. I found that it was to fragranced for any regular use. Sometimes I spray it on my clothes the night before I wear them so they survive their brief stay in my gym locker. If your car stinks really strongly, buy this. If not, don't.
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm

This is like someone took the best of vaseline and Chapstick and combined them, plus a cute sent. It has a slight dewy shine, a smooth feel, and it really moisturizes. The scent reminds my of My Little Pony dolls, but other than that my only complaint is that its a little bit hard to get out of the tin. You really have to rub your finger on it for a bit to get some product up. I love this stuff and I'll buy it over and over again!
I snagged this shadow trio in "venus between us" at a yard sale in new condition for 2 dollars. They are sold for around 15 at Sephora, which is average for upscale eyeshadow. The colors (blueish greens) are cute and versital. There is a really sparkly one, which is a bit much for day time, a shimmery one, and a lighter velvetly one. They have OK wear, although you may have to reaply in the middle of the day if you don't use eyeshadow base. Overall I like this shadow, but I wouldn't spend the usual amount on it.
