Toners -Clinique - Acne Solutions Clarifying Lotion
riddles 9/18/2009 1:21:00 AM
I have fairly sensitive combination skin, but this doesn't dry it out at all! It has saved me from breakouts. I only use it at night before bed, washing first with Clinique's Mild Liquid Facial Soap and then using the Acne Solutions Clearing Moisturizer over that. Again, I only do this in the evening, and I wake up with MUCH clearer, very soft skin. Then I rinse my face with water and use the Dramatically Different lotion and I'm all set! If my skin is in good condition, I can skip this step in my regime, but if my forehead is breaking out there is NOTHING that works as well as this does. A lifesaver.
There's nothing like Alchemy. The smell is amazing and it leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth without being greasy. Perfect for night time or before foundation. You get what you pay for!

it makes my hair soft, but too fluffy, which makes it seem frizzy. kind of the opposite of what i was hoping would happen.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences None Of Your Frizzness Smoothing Shampoo

i'm pretty sure this shampoo and conditioner has been making my hair more frizzy! i have thick wavy hair and this is making it fluffy and almost too soft, if that makes sense. wavy haired girls, stay away from this. i wish i hadn't bought it!
My favorite candles! My top three scents are Essence of John Galliano, Feu de Bois, and Demitasse. Not in the order, but if you are ever in the presence of these, make sure you seek those out and sniff away. They are so worth the price.
I absolutely adore this scent. It reminds me of camping and Christmastime. I want my boyfriend to smell like this! I would love it if this was how my house smelled year round, but unfortunately we go through these so fast that they last about five days. So deliciously and strongly scented, it fills up my entire downstairs with its firey scent.
My mom manages a store where they sell Diptyque candles, lucky for me! Anyway, I just found a bag under her bed with about five candles in it (it was like Christmas!) and this was one of them. I had never smelled this before, I must have missed it in the store and I absolutely love it. It smells a bit like my favorite, Feu de Bois, but it is deep, dark, musty, and woody. This is almost everything I love about scents wrapped up in one gorgeous candle. If you like this at all in the store, you shouldn't hesitate. Just buy it - sure, it'll be a splurge, but wow. It's amazing.
Yum. This is light, fresh, and crisp. Perfect for Summer! I just love it. This rivals with Fresh's Basil scent..

I usually hate sweet smelling perfumes like this, but I have been wearing this so much lately and I love it. It's like Cotton Candy! The scent lasts a while. If you love this, definitely check out the body lotion - it's silky smooth and makes the fragrance last all day!
Candles -Trish McEvoy - Wild Blueberry Vanilla Scented Candle

I have this burning right now and I can't seem to get tired of it. It's absolutely delicious and I always get compliments on it when someone walks in this room. I love it! Trish has great candles.
I love Paula Dorf's cream blushes! With a bit of foundation before underneath of them, they last all day no matter how greasy or sweaty my face gets in this heat. I love this Candy Apple color, it looks great on tanned skin and is very translucent but rightly pigmented. If you like this, I suggest "Rumba" - it's my other favorite by Paula Dorf.
I saw nothing special about this. I got no lather from it and it was quite watery for my taste. This did nothing for my hair! I got the bottle for free from the store my mom works at (it was an old tester) or else I wouldn't have bought this.. I am indifferent to the fact that it's unscented.
I've been using this for the past few days when I get out of the shower and I love it. The scent is so energizing, very citrus-y and lovely! It doesn't hang around too much, though, and is often covered up by my perfume if I wear any. This doesn't make my skin sticky and keeps my dry elbows nice and moist until my next shower.
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15
riddles 7/14/2005 3:20:00 PM
I have about four of these and three of them have broken! As annoying as this is, I forgive it - I adore this lip treatment. I use it everyday, under lipstick or lipgloss or just by itself. Feels really good and smells delicious, and the SPF is great for the beach if you don't want bright red lips. Worth the cash every time! I have one in every purse.
This is a manly fragrance, but I wear it in moderation, mixed with a fruity fragrance. I love this - it's completely different, tart, and earthy. Unisex, in my opinion.
