Clothes -Victoria's Secret - PINK Panty Collection

I am so far from being a teen, but these are great cotton panties which hold up wash after wash. They keep their shape and some have a little lycra/spandex in them (like 1%) to help hold their shape. They are soooooooooo comfortable for everyday wear. I buy the plain style with just a vs logo around the elastic or just plain. 5 for $25. Love them.
Great for applying the day after your mani is dry to make it last. I use this about 20 min before bed and I love the glassy finish. I never had a mani last so long before I used this. It doesn't build up, yet you can used it every night if you wanted to. Love it.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

This scrub works great as soon as I start breaking out. Ideally I'd use it twice a week. It's not to harsh at all in my opinion. It works great as a body scrub also. This is a beauty staple.
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Wonderful product I keep one of these next to my bed and one in my car. It smells lemony clean and really heals and keeps my cuticles moisturized. Great little gift for a friend, too.
Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Thermaclear Heat Enabled Acne Treatment

WARNING*** Thermaclear has caused me to have irreversable scars; it totally hurt, too. It felt like rubber bands snapping on my face. I returned it to Sephora for $150 back, so glad I was able to get a refund. I used it properly for a month and I am convinced it actually increased my acne by totally irritating my skin. I now have permanent marks wherever I used it!!! I am so disappointed and my Dermotologist said it was a fake gimmick. He said there is no way that "8 out of 10 dermatologists recommend Thermaclear". What a rip off and a waste of $! Please beware and use caution if you dare to try this horrible, damaging ripoff product. I feel like the manufacturers are just ripping off us acne suffers!
This is one of my top 10 polishes of all time. It is a gorgeous warm red with duotone shimmer. It is a warmer La Boheme OPI like shade. Gorgeous on.
Gorgeous color; the China Glaze formula is smooth and drying time is shorter with Seche Vite quick dry top coat. Ruby Pumps is my fav China Glaze color.
Thank you Makeupalley for the high rating on this product. I never would have found it on my own. It is the only product that has healed my severely cracked and dry heels. I put it on at night and wear cotton socks to bed. It soaks in fast and is easy to get out in the flip top tube. It's holy grail product for me now. I love it. I can finally wear flipflops and slinkback pumps again. The constistency is perfect and I don't notice any type of odor. My hands seem so much smoother, too, just from the application process. I found it at Walgreens and Target for about $4 for 4oz. The active incredient is 25%urea. Other lotions and creams I have tried only contained a smaller percentage, so I'm sure the high content has something to do with its effectiveness. I truly can't recommend this product enough.
Count me in. Based on reviews I bought a couple of these to have in my purse, car, etc. I love how moisturizing it is with a natural lip tint that looks great. Thanks MUA!
Surprisingly delicious scent once it settles down. Based on reviews, I put a little on a cotton ball and dabbed a little on my chest. WOW the MAN Magnet claims are so real. It must be the rootbeer, vanilla and amber scents in it. Thanks for recommending mua.

I didn't find this moisturizing at all. It just sat on the skin. Tanning beds are so bad for your health; I wouldn't promote using this product for that purpose.
Eyeliner -New York Color - Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil 931A Black
radiant1 1/23/2009 10:52:00 PM
Terrible smudging! I would give this a negative 5 if I could. I can't understand why anyone would like this cheap horrible pencil. It splinters, too. Dangerous to the eye. Spend a little more and get something that lasts and won't smudge. This pencil is so old-fashioned!
I love this color as a topcoat to enhance any other shade. The shimmer is so tiny, and gorgeous. Easy to find at Walmart, looks much better on than in the bottle. Thanks mua for recommending this shade!
Skincare - Face -Unlisted Brand - Accutane (by prescription)
radiant1 1/23/2009 1:54:00 AM
I had hereditary cystic acne. I took antibiotics for years and that was not good. I took two cycles of accutane in my 20s and it saved my life. I was so stressed out over trying to control my acne and it literally was so painful on a daily basis. The only side effect I had was dry skin and lips while on accutane. I had to use lots of lotion. Big deal. It was worth going thru for sure. The drs. kept repeating that it's important not to get pregnant on this medication because there is severe birth defects from it. I had to take pregnancy tests, this may be standard for all women on accutane. I am so grateful to this medication and recommended my sisters take it too and they loved accutane.
This is a terrific clarifying shampoo. A little goes a long way as it is super concentrated.
