I figured out the best way to use this product! Yes it is a little expensive. And yes it has an herbally smell. I feel the best way to use it is when you come out of the shower and your body is moist, even if you have some drops of water in it it's okay! I, as recommended store mine in a tin. When I come out of the shower and I'm a little wet I just use it like a body butter, and just like some other reviewers said it does turn into powder (just a little bit) which I love because it doesn't stay greasy like say mange too or strawberry feels forever do. It does melt faster than some of the body butters, but when i use other body butters i have to put on a lot of dusting powder due to the heavy amount of grease they cause. Schnuggle doesn't cause any. Only mega problem, the scent isn't my cup of tea.
I bought this based on the high review rate. Someone on a board had a code for 50% off certain products and this was one of them. It gives me a great glow. It is a little shiny but perfect for going out. It is a little sparkly but it looks great on my skin now that I have absolutely no pimples for the first time in years thanks to not using makeup while exposing my skin to more water and a couple products. But you can use this as a bronzer or an all over glow. The packaging was very smart considering it's minerals because when you open the cap there is a sliding door for the holes. You can twist it open to pour out the bronzer and twist it back so the minerals don't fall out. Will definitely repurchase
Treatments (Eye) -Garnier - Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller

My boyfriend has been using this products for months. I take care of his kin. I use vitamin C, I use high end shaving products so he gets no razor burn. I use kate sommerville nourish and an inexpensive toner. He uses this product in the morning and it has done absolutly nothing to his eyes. He wakes up ealy and so he get some bags and he has bought at least 10 of these. His mom keeps giving them to him. They just don't work. He doesn't have makeup or really oily skin to worry about. I've been using l'occitaine eye balm, and in 2 weeks I see a difference. I think he finely noticed that this product wasn't working. It looks pretty cool, and I like the shape and how it's small. But bottom line, it doesn't work!
I came upon the feminie aisle in my local drugstore. I always like to feel nice and clean down there and summer's eve doesn't cut it. I was interested in this product because it was different than everything else. So I just bought it. It comes packaged in a hardened gel. They are all individually packaged. It also comes with an inserter. You can insert it befoire taking a bath (which they recommen) because the hardened gel turns into regular gel and can get a little messy. The scent they have is island escape. So once I insert them after an hour or too, you feel the gel inside you., Your area smells great. I have a little obsessions about making sure I smell good down there. It also acts as a lubricant which can be helpful....... Interestinmg product for all the feminie products out there. And you do smell like flowers for like 6 hours. lol.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Harmons Acne medication gel benzoyl peroxide
prissy973 4/21/2011 11:50:00 PM
I have this all 5 lippies because it took ,my severe acnes down to a minimum. Many people were telling me to go to see a dermatologist. I just couldn't make it. My friend gave me this product with 10% benzoyl peroxide in it already half used and it worked like a charm. This was one of the discoveries to not to turn away from from store brands. Because none of my high end face masks/cleansers/gels had such a result. I had used La Roche Posay with benzoyl peroxide and it didn't do anything, and that was %35. Will buy this again in a heart beat.
Self Tanners -Clarins - Gelee Auto Bronzant Express - Self-Tanning Instant Gel
prissy973 4/20/2011 9:03:00 PM
I've tried, St. Tropez, Fake Bake, SevinNyne, Too Faced Tanning in a tube, both Jergens,Tan Towels, Comodynes, Elarriia to name a few lol. This one is one the best because it doesn't leave streaks and it doesn't look darker in certain areas than other. I know its hard to fully massage into exfoliated skin and make sure the creme penetrates completely, but rest assured this product doesn't need all that extra "work". I put in on my regular unshowered skin. Many times I don't massage it as well as I should and I still get brilliant results. The price might be a little on the high side for some, but it beats dreading over worrying about all the other things you have to worry about to get optimal result for this self tanner. The smell is quite nice too. Many people worry about the smell. But I don't mind, Unfortunately it comes in 4 oz, which is pretty small, so use sparingly. During the winter months I use is on my upper body cause only one person gets to see my legs. I don't use it on my face because for me this is the only part of the body it didn't turn out too good on, The outcome, a repeat customer.
This product is suppose to brighten your cheeks and your lips with color, hence the convertible color. I tried it on my lips a few times before and it was okay. Previous viewers didnm't seem to like it it but when I put enough on my lips it matched the apple of my cheeks. Whoopee! Okay so this does come in a small compact. And for my skin color I don't need to use a lot on my cheeks to eave a nice stain otherwise it wil be too bright. Pretty pricey for the amount you get, Anyways, the only thing I don;t like about it is that it's in a compact and that you have to smear your fingers ALL over. Makes me want to wash my hands everytime I use my biush. There is castor oil, lanolin oil, beeswax BHT among other ingredients so I'm not sure I'm someone who has skinn that those ingredients could attribute to may cause a problem. I was just nameing a few. I don't understand how this one a award for In style best beauty buys, because it may be a decent product, but it is definitely overpriced. You would think in this economy they are trying find good items at great deals. I don't know, just my opinion but I like the product and I will buy it again.
This is one of the bigger bath bombs, oh say compared to twilight. It has vanilla and lavender notes. The vanilla is mainily why I picked it up. I don't really go for the pacthouli or lemongrass like scents. The vanilla comes from a Tonka bean, and then there is lavender added to help you calm and go to sleep. So It's nighttime now, and I just used the twilight, I beieve for my first time (gosh I've been through so many it's hard to keep count) and I used to aqua mirabilis.I was debating whether to cut the bomb in half, but you can't because there is another bomb inside of it so it would ruin the whole bomb. (so don't cut the bomb in half) SO i just pampered myself with the whole bomb. I must say I do feel relaxed. I added PFS goat's milk with vanilla notes to bring out the vanilla from the bath bomb and it's working great. Will repurchase!!!
These candles are great. I'm talking about the mason jar candles. I bought all sorts of candles from Voluspa, Nest, Fringe, etc.. What I love about these candles is the smell. They actually smell like what they say. They come in a country style mug (as I posted the pic above) and you have to clip the wick after each use. They last up to 100 hours!!! For 8 dollar that's a pretty good bang for your buck. The smell really fills the room. My first experience was with Sugar cookie Mountain, and it tasted delicious. Then there are the triple layered scents which are great. Root beer float smells great. They don't come in any fancy holders, but for me the smell is the most important thing. They have over 50 scents to choose from, fresh scents, sweet scents. If you like candles for the smell, check out their website ourowncandecompany.com which you can place orders for the cheapest price. They are always changing scents and bringing them back based on customer requests. I have had smell my nuts (triple layered with hazelnut, banana bread and coconut). pumpkin spice as just a few that I really enjoyed. The juicy pomegranite was a disappointment. . I think you should stick close to the sweeter scents or maybe the fresh ones ( I just ordered fresh linen) But definitely a great product to try for all you candle lovers!!!
This is similar to Buffy. They both are used to exfoliate and moisturize. The Aqua however seems to exfoliate more. You can see the grounded up almonds in the bar which i believe is used for exfoliation. Just like in the Buffy there is cocoa butter, and it really moisturizes your skin. I have purchased this 3 times so far while I bought thr Buffy twice. The Buffy mostly moisturizes in my opinion. You can see a nice lather when you scrub this up and down your body. Make sure you get a tin to get the most use out of the product!
I wish I read the reviews before purchasing this product. I was thinking it would be a nice coral shimmery color like the blush. Boy was I wrong! The color is creamy. I agree with the previous reviewer, it does look washed out.But It does have a nice lusturous shine/finish. I think this lip gloss would be best suited to go on top of another lipstick, but I wouldn't spend this amount of money to buy a gloss that I'd have to use another lip color with. .
EVERY GIRL HAS TO HAVE AN ORGASM. This is a great coral color that I believe looks good on almost everyone. It was sitting in my drawer for 5 years and I didn't even know that I had it, until I bought the cream stick. Nars makes great blushes and bronzers. There is not much more to say..Definitely worth the 27 bucks.
Let me tell you, I have naturally straight hair, it's very dry from all the coloring. It doesn't get that frizzy, so it's hard for me to notice if a product is REALLY working. I used this product a handful of times in 5 months and it felt a little softer. I rubbed it, put it on my hair, put on a shower cap, slept with it on and washed my hair the next day. I wanted to get the full effect of it (I also heard that is another way you can do it). But it's nothing a good serum couldn't do. So i say nay. Keep you $60 bucks! Spend it on the Morrocan oil!!
This is what they call a "tube" mascara. The bristles are in "tubes" and what it really does is tint your lashes more than anything. I can't comment much about volume and length because I wear extensions. I still wanted a little oomph so someone suggested it to me and I saw the high ratings on MUA and ordered it on Sephora. When I called beauty advice experts at Sephora this lady told me it isn't your typical mascara. It does in fact color your lashes. This is probably why some of the previous reviewers didn't see too much length or volume. The mascara is hard to come off (maybe because of my extensions).but I had to slather on my eye makeup remover and it ruined my extensions. Easy conclusion: I will not repurchase this. I will actually return it because I don't want to use it again.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clarisonic - Pro Skincare Brush
prissy973 3/31/2011 7:44:00 PM
A general rule to follow with the Clarisonic is to make sure you change the brush often and to put the cap on. Once the brush is over used (between a month to two) the Clarisonic isn't able to penetrate the way it's suppose to. A lot of users make this mistake by not using the cap and so the bristles get damaged which make the brush not work/penetrate the way it is made to. I've been using the Clarisonic since late January and I've seen visible results, especially in the serums and moisturizers I use. I also used to not care about the way I handled the brush, but after doing some research I see the big impact it has on it.
