The polish chipped in less than three days- overall, not impressed at all. It is cheap, but you get what you pay for in this nail polish, in my opinion. I like Cover Girl makeup in general, but the polish leaves much to be desired.
Powder -Serious Skin Care - Bella Rose Promineral Foundation

The brush to bowl lid is definitely the best part about this makeup. It is so easy to use- tap a bit of the makeup into the lid, sweep your brush across, swoop all over the face, and you are good! I suggest adding a bit at first, then adding more coverage as you need it. No matter what, you will look as if you have no makeup on, but your skin WILL look better. My skin looks FLAWLESS when I wear it, and the SSC blushes are good as well. I just love the ease of application with this product, and that I can do the auto ship with HSN so I am never without my Bella Rose! I either use Bella Rose or else Jafra liquid foundation- I will not use any other foundations. Historically, I have never been satisfied with foundations, and I had tried a few other mineral makeups and always felt as if my skin looked " chalky"-but I ADORE SSC!!
Masks -Serious Skin Care - Triple-Acting Glycolic Mask

I will warn you a bit- when you first put the mask on, it stings a bit, but it does not last very long. Once you remove the mask, your skin will look quite pink the first time you use it, but the pinkness will go away and in its place you will find radiant, beautiful skin!! My blackheads even go away ( albeit temporarily!) whenever I use this mask. This is easily one of my favorite facial masks, and I use a mask every week. I am very much into skincare products, and Serious Skin Care makes great skincare that's for sure!!! I want to try the olive oil mask next once the winter months arrive.
AMAZING!!! I bought this maybe three years ago on Drugstore.com, and I have never used any other shaving cream since! The scents they offer are great, especially the vanilla, and I have never had any nicks or cuts since using this shaving cream- seriously! This seriously moisturizes any part of the body you want to shave, reduces cuts or completely stops them and Kiss My Face is natural!!!! GREAT STUFF PEOPLE!! :)
Just have to say- the only nail polish I pretty much use other than OPI. It is extremely resistant to chips if you use this with Jafra's base coat and top coat- though I have used a Sally Hanson top coat as well, and my manicure still lasted a week- which is very rare in other nail polishes that's for sure!!! My favorite color is cotton candy, which I am not even certain is sold anymore, but there are other fabulous colors as well. The red nail lacquers offered by Jafra are also quite flattering, and Jafra tends to come out with some new seasonal colors every season. Please try if you want a last mani!
Conditioner -Desert Essence - Italian Red Grape Conditioner
portcutie77 5/6/2010 10:26:00 PM
I cannot say I really liked this conditioner. I have very curly, frizzy, dry and color treated hair. I used to relax my hair, but I haven't relaxed it in about 2 years so the relaxer has pretty much grown out. I also tend to get a very dry, itchy scalp at times. But I digress. I bought this conditioner once and the smell, I have to say, is DIVINE. But otherwise- not very moisturizing for my type of hair, I couldn't comb through my hair that easily after using the conditioner, and I really saw no difference in dryness or curl definition. Now, my sister has less curly hair than I do, and it is also not quite as dry, as she likes this. If you are someone with hair like mine, there are better conditioners to use.
I really only have to say- Jafra lipsticks are the BEST! Many different colors to choose from, VERY long lasting- this stuff barely budges let me tell you!!, and quite moisturizing. I always use a lip balm like Chapstick under my lipstick anyway, but with the Jafra it's not really necessary if you don't have extremely dry lips as I do. I used to be a Jafra consultant, and all of the gals that used to buy from me LOVED the lipsticks. I pretty much only use Jafra for lipstick!
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream
portcutie77 5/6/2010 10:21:00 PM
I first got this about 5 years ago for a stocking stuffer from my sister. My mother and I both fell in love with this instantly!! This is the best thing I have ever used on my cuticles and nails, and I go borderline crazy if I run out of this!! I smooth this on the nails and cuticles almost daily, and then I even spread any extra all over my hands for extra moisturizing benefits. I do agree with some other reviewers that state that the product is very messy to use, and the container is not the best ever but in terms of cuticle softening, nothing beats this. I also like that Burt's Bees products are most natural as I am trying to use more natural products as of late.
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner
portcutie77 5/6/2010 10:18:00 PM
For a cheaper conditioner, this is pretty good. It definitely will add moisture to the hair. It does tend to leave a slight buildup on the hair that I did not like,but overall this is one of the more moisturizing conditioners.
