Concealers -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind Concealer [DISCONTINUED]
moonxpetal 7/13/2008 4:33:00 PM
This is the best concealer ever! It dries quickly, the coverage is beyond great and a little bit goes a looong way so the tube lasts forever. The only problem is, I think they stopped making it! I can't find it anywhere. :(
My mom got a couple of these during a BOGO sale and she gave me one. I'm only 21 and I don't really need age defying makeup, but free foundation is free foundation so I decided to give it a try. I was not pleased, and neither was my mom. It's too dark, doesn't blend that well, and settles in creases I didn't even know I had. It makes the area around my mouth look awful, like I caked it on, but I didn't. The coverage sucks, too. Don't waste your money on this stuff. Instead, try Maybelline's Superstay Silky foundation. To date, it's best one I've ever tried.

Love this stuff! But, I didn't really use it how the bottle tells you to. I blow dried my hair most of the way, sprayed this on my hair, put my hair up into piggy buns, and then blowdried each of the buns. Then, after about 20 minutes, I took the buns down, and I had the most gorgeous, soft waves. Even my boyfriend commented on how "sexy" my hair looked. I will definitely keep buying this!
Gels/Soaps -Caress - Caress Glowing Touch Body Wash

I ended up getting heat bumps on my legs a few weeks ago, and even though they had gone away, my legs were left feeling pretty rough. Lotion didn't help, and even after I would shave, they'd feel all prickly. Well, the other day I had to take a shower at my Aunt's house, and she happened to have this in her shower. It had the word glowing on the bottle, so of course I had to try it. I am SO glad I did. When I got out of the shower, my legs were soft again! I couldn't believe it, especially since they badly needed a shave. I'm so happy to have my legs feeling soft again. I think when I run out of body wash, I'm going to pick some of this up! :)
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - Teen Spirit Sweet Strawberry deodorant
moonxpetal 8/4/2007 9:52:00 AM
This and the coconut version are my favorite deodorants, ever. The strawberry one smells *delicious*, just like a strawberry blowpop, and it lasts all day. And whenever I lift my arm, I get a whiff of the fantastic strawberry smell. My boyfriend even loves it, and wears it, too. He's actually the one who bought it because he was sick of paying 5 dollars for a stick of man's deodorant when Teen Spirit only costs a dollar and some change. As long as they keep making it, we'll keep buying it. :)
Polishes -New York Color - Long Wearing Nail Enamel
moonxpetal 2/13/2007 1:09:00 PM
Yeah, this stuff is amazing and CHEAP! I got it at Target for only 94 cents a bottle. I bought this in Broadway Burgundy Frost and Big Apple Red Cream. Both are gorgeous colors, but you definitely need two coats. Compared to other nail polishes I've used, this goes on very smoothly and evenly. I have the broadway burgundy on my toes, and it's been four days, and still no chips. And that's awesome, considering I wore this certain pair of shoes I have that always makes the polish on my toes chip off. I'm going to go back to the store and buy a bunch more. I LOVE this stuff! My only complaint is, I wish they had more colors.

I used this stuff a while ago, and it was horrible. Right away, it made my skin worse. I began getting those painful cyst pimples, and the treatment did nothing to stop or prevent breakouts. This stuff is just awful and I definitely won't repurchase.
I have this in Sophisticated Sable, and I LOVE it. The colors are like a bronzed peach, and when I wear it, I glow. I also love that even though the colors look dark in the pan, when you apply them, they aren't dark at all (I have olive skin, but it's pretty pale). This blush is great if you like to layer it on. :)
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Shea Butter Skin Enriching Moisturiser
moonxpetal 11/10/2006 10:29:00 AM
I love this stuff! It smells good, and makes your skin soooooooooo soft. Seriously, no lotion has ever made my skin this soft. I can't stop touching my legs. I've been using this stuff for a week, and today when I got out of the shower and dried off, my skin was still super soft. Infact, my skin feels like I've already put lotion on today, and I haven't. I'm pretty impressed, and will definitely repurchase.
I was skeptical at first, but this stuff really does work. I began taking this about 3 weeks ago, and 2 weeks into it, I noticed my skin was getting worse. I began to breakout on my forehead, and I never breakout there. Still, I kept with the pills and the cream, and I'm so glad I did, because I swear like overnight, my skin cleared up like 70%! I guess the old saying is true, it has to get worse before it gets better. I'm just amazed that my skin looked horrible one day, and then the next day it had dramatically improved. So, if you buy this and it doesn't seem like it's working, stick with it! I'm glad I did. I will definitely keep buying this stuff. **EDIT 12/14** I've begun taking both AM and PM pills at night, before I go to bed, and it works A LOT better than taking each pill in the AM and PM. I'm so happy, my skin has never looked this good! Just thought I'd pass along the info. :)
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

Love this stuff! I found it at Big Lots for only $2.00, and I have to say that it's the best facial cleanser I've ever used, and the best exfoliater, too! It can be pretty rough on your skin, so you have to be gentle when using this. I like to leave it on my face for a minute, just to let the salicyclic acid do it's job, and then I rinse it off. I will definitely repurchase!
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Ribbons Body Wash with Jojoba Butter Ribbons

Holy crap! This stuff is amazing. It smells soooo good and it leaves your skin feeling soft and smelling great. It's definitely the best body wash I've ever used. I also use it to shave my legs with, and they come out feeling so incredibly smooth. I'm totally in love with this stuff. It has become my HG body wash. I'll definitely repurchase.
