Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula

I LOVE the smell of this lotion. I use it after tanning in a tanning bed and it's so moisturizing. I don't know why everyone says it smells bad- I think this is the best smelling cocoa butter on the market. Queen Helene's smells disgusting. No matter what lotion I use, I always come back to Palmer's cocoa butter.

This stuff works better than my $18 Alterna mousse! I have a short haircut with layers and this girls me volume and appears to thicken my hair. I will not be buying Alterna mousse again.

I love that this smells like the beach! It moisturizes so-so, but the smell is it's biggest selling point for me.
I have used these several times over the past couple of years and have had iffy results. Sometimes they'll put lots of "gunk" from my pores and other times nothing will come off! I also think they're too harsh and over dry my face in the areas where I've used the strips.
Although this product won't perform any miracles on your hair, it works good on my thin, short hair. I use it on days when I'm not really going for a style, but just want to put something in my hair before I blow dry it. It works great for that purpose or when I shower at night and let my hair air dry...i'll put a little in my hair and it leaves my hair smelling great and soft and manageable in the morning.
This stuff works great on my thin hair. Just don't use too much or you'll end up with a greasy mess. The smell is great and the only drawback is the odd packaging which is hard to travel with or store with other products because of it's odd shape.

I agree with a lot of other reviews that this stuff does dry out your hair. But since my hair is very oily this does a great job of settling down the oil. If I put this on damp hair and blow dry it leaves my hair with volume and controls oil all day.
This is the best deep conditioner. It can be used daily without leaving hair oily. The smell is absolutely delightful!

I have medium brown hair and this stuff works great on me. I mix it with a little mousse or hair gel and run it all through my hair (mostly on the ends) before I blow dry my hair. Once my hair is dry my hair is shimmery and looks/smells great just like summer.
I recently had my hair cut short with layers so I barely need conditioner on the ends. Even though I don't need it I continue to use this stuff about once a week because it smells SO GOOD. This is honestly the best smelling hair product out there. I love using it in the winter because it makes me feel like I'm at the beach.
I use this spray to make my hair look wavy and summery. I put it on wet hair and blow dry my hair on a low setting while scrunching/making ringlets with my finger while my hair dries. It leaves my hair looking and smelling great. The only drawbacks are...make sure you don't use too much because it gets oily and it makes your hand oily after using it. You'll have to wipe your hand off after you put it in your hair before you can use a blowdryer.
This is my HG face lotion. I have oily skin and I use it daily after washing my face, so my face isn't so tight. It doesn't clog my pores or make my face look oily. It's also unscented and not too think...just runny enough to smooth into your skin. I will never use another lotion on my face again!
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - My Favorite Lip Balm

Everything about this stuff is great except it's consistency is a little to thin. It kind of runs out of it's package. If it were as thick as the mentha lip shine it would be my favorite lip gloss. I LOVE the almond scent and the packaging, but like I said it's just a little too runny.
This is my new favorite product! I love that the texture of this stuff is similar to vaseline and feels great on my lips. The container is large and allows to to finish every last bit of stuff from it. You can use this stuff on your lips like a lipgloss and also around your cuticles if they're dry or around your nose where it gets chapped in winter. I also love the smell of this. It's not too strong....just sweet and floraly.
