I honestly could not live without this product. I take impeccable care of my skin and I have used Vichy to get rid of my breakouts...but my oily skin has stayed. A lady at Shoppers Drug Mart made me try this, and I reluctantly agreed and I am SO glad she made me try it. Nothing else has help controlled oil, and while it doesn't keep it all away it makes a huge difference in the staying power of my makeup and I have gone from using 8 oil absorbing sheets per day (seriously...it's that oily) down to 3.
I get a new mascara every 3 months or once I use one up, and I have been buying a new one every single time because I never found one I liked enough to repurchase. I have straight, medium length lashes that will not hold a curl at all and they tend to just look thin when I apply mascara. I adore this mascara..it coats every lash..even the ones I didn't know I had and while my lashes still don't hold a curl they still look 100x better...in fact friends and coworkers have noticed my eyes look prettier.
Best nai polish I've tried. I have used pretty much every brand of nail polish from the cheapo N.Y.C. to O.P.I. I work in retail so I am constantly hitting my nails on stuff and this stuff would last more than a week.. I just redo my polish every week because I keep my nails extremely short. Last week I did my nails using the colour "hot for chocolate" and didn't have time to apply a top coat and it still lasted the full week. Incredible nail polish for an incredible price! UPDATE...I found with this polish while the staying power is amazing however after about 1 or 2 times of applying it it bubbles a lot. I've now found a new HG...China Glaze polishes...they never bubble on me and the staying power is almost as good as Revlon.
Powder -Everyday Minerals - foundation semi-matte formula

I've been using this makeup for over a year and I love it. I always get the 6 piece custom kit, and it lasts me over 6 months. Last winter I ordered it but because of Christmas the shipping took almost a month, so I had to use my old foundation and it felt disgusting on my face. With the EM foundation I feel like I'm not even wearing anything, and the staying power is amazing. I use their brushes which are amazingly soft, the body shop brushes which are $20 each that used to feel super soft now feel rough to me because of how soft the EM brushes are.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Wash
oOeye_candyOo 7/14/2009 4:51:00 PM
I love this product. I started using it about a year ago and noticed that it actually removed all of my makeup, didnt dry my face out and helped clear up my acne. It makes my face feel really clean after I use it. I've purchased probably over 10 bottles and it's only around $5.. so cheap!
I purchased this yesterday because I had just over $3 left on a mall giftcard and I was in need of a new gloss. I purchased "sugar coated" which is the light pink. I didnt expect any pigment, even though it's a "tinted balm" but I purchased anyways. I don't think I've ever been so surprised in a product. The gloss actually turns my lips a nice light sheer pink, without looking too light. It lasts on my lips forever, unless I'm eating or drinking then I have to reapply. The only other gloss I've owned that has the same staying power is the Victorias Secret beauty rush lip glosses, but they have a very sticky, heavy consistency which is very uncomfortable.
This stuff is amazing. I am naturally that extremely pale colour that makes people ask if you're feeling sick and after one application of this my skin has a healthy glow to it. The most I've used it in a row is 3 days and after that I look like I have a natural tan. I usually apply it every other day after that and it keeps up the tan I achieve. I find that in the morning after I use it I can slightly smell the tanner smell but I asked my friends and family and they said that I smelled good so its nothing to worry about. I'm on my 5th or 6th bottle now and I'm going to repurchase it when I run out again.
I'm reviewing the Love "Lovely Curl Enhancing Conditioner" and I love this stuff. I have naturally wavyish hair that I defuse every day to make curly.. this stuff has definately made my curls more defined and bouncy and even if I sleep on my hair the next day the curls still look just as amazing as they did just after I styled my hair. I use it with the matching shampoo. Both bottles cost me $40 and I've only used about half in a month.
I went into the store looking to try out the dove energy glow lotion but they were out of the fair skin kind but had the fair skin kind in the jergens so i decided to pick it up. When I first used this I loved it.. the colour looks natural and I didnt notice a horrible smell. I finally picked up the dove kind and Ive been using it for about a month now, but when i was about to do my one arm i ran out so i used the jergens to cover it.. this smells revolting compared to doves.. i never noticed it until now. Both lotions have the same result.. so im sticking with dove because the smell is hardly tanner like
This make up is amazing. I set it with the nearly naked loose powder. People have been complimenting my skin for the first time in forever.
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Vaseline Intensive Care Nightly Body Renewal

I looooooove this stuff. I remember using it as a kid in the winter for my dry hands. I have very sensitive skin and I've tried every moisturizer you can think of. About a month and a half ago I ran out of my St. Ives lotion and this was in my moms bathroom. I tried it and loved the smell and I've been using it ever since and just this week I bought another bottle.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Gelee in medium deep
oOeye_candyOo 11/6/2006 6:50:00 PM
Im extremely pale and during the summer I bought this just for a change because I dont tan. Well it was my first time ever using a self tanner and I turned out extremely dark I honestly looked like I had brazillian skin it was kind of funny and unatural looking on me. Unfortunately I missed some spots so it looked a bit odd but it went away after exfoliating like crazy for 3 days straight. Now I'm trying it mixed with moisturizer so the colour wont go as dark. So far so good I look slightly tanned but not to the point where I look fake. The gelee consistancy of this product is great for mixing in with moisturizer. I'm definately going to repurchase once I run out.
My derm reccomended this for my very very dry legs. It was about 20 bucks but my dad bought it so that doesnt really matter. Last night I used it and normally my legs are very itchy during the day but they didnt itch at all until about 7 tonight when it was probably worn off. Will update.
This stuff is great! I've always wanted to try the physicians formula powders that look like this stuff but I didnt want to spend 20 dollars on something that I might not like. I was at a store with my friend and I bought this just because I thought it might be kind of the same as the more expensive kind. I've tried many powders (I have extremely oily skin) and they all mattify (?) but then very soon after my skin is all oily again...or the powder will make me look like I rubbed chalk all over my face (I'm very pale). This stuff lasts about 3 hours and looks natural and I just love it so much. I will definately repurchase when I run out of it.
Other -Crest - Crest Whitestrips Renewal Age-Defying Strips

Ok so I'm 17 and I bought these whitestrips because I had a coupon. I just started them about 15 minutes ago and they're easy to put on and keep on. I'll keep updating as I go along to see how my teeth get. Ok so it's the end of day 3 of these. I don't see any difference at all in the colour of my teeth. When the strips are on there's this slight pain that I feel. Ok day 4 and my gums are burning like crazy with them on...I'm only going to apply them once today and wait until tomorrow to start using them again and hopefully my gums are healed enough by tomorrow. The burning goes away after about 10 minutes but it's still there a bit. Day 5 and my friend said that my teeth are a lot whiter than they were before so they're working quite well. My gums are probably getting really sensitive because the strips are hitting my gums...but only because my canine teeth go up a lot farther than my other teeth and I don't want yellow bases. Today the burning went away after about 10 minutes both times. Ok well I'm finished the strips and my teeth are a lot whiter...people are complimenting them constantly and I no longer feel self-concious about my smile. For anybody that has just naturally yellow teeth these are great...but since I'm not a smoker and I'm only 17 I'm not sure how well these will work for those of you who have a lot of staining. I hope I helped some of you guys out!
