My boyfriend loves the Jack Black product line, so I was already familiar with most of their products. Recently when my friend and I were at Sephora, we were looking for a sunscreen that would feel good, smell nice, and at an affordable price point. On a fluke I spread this on my arm and walked away. As I rubbed it in and walked around I was completely amazed that it felt like it had completely disapeared into my skin with out a trace! Both my friend and I ended up buying it and are very happy about this purchase!
This cools down skin irritations and helps to get rid of pimples without drying out the zit and skin around it. It is expensive and I will continue to look for something else with a lower price point but until I find that product to replace this one...I'll continue to buy it!
Moisturizers -Ren - Omega 3 Nutrifying Facial Serum

I hate the smell of this, but it really fixed my dry skin issues! My usually normal to dry skin has been fine all summer, but I went out of town for a month and got really dry patches on my cheeks. As soon as I got back home I put on this serum and the very next morning...no dry patches! I pinch my nose when I smoothe it on and follow up with a wonderful smelling night cream to combat the funk. It's very good stuff but a tad stinky.
weird to admit...but i really like this wash. it doesn't leave a scent on the skin but it sure makes the whole bathroom smell delish!

My boyfriend loves it! He says the trick to enhancing the whole experience is to splash with cool water afterwards. Every guy I know who's tried it really fall in love with this products. Very slippery in texture and a real fun smurfy blue color!
Skincare - Face -Ole Henriksen - Sheer Transformation Creme

OMG! I love this moisturizer SO much! I have dry skin so it is amazing to me that a lite product like this can do the job so well! It has a funny texture to it because it glides around on your skin similar to an oil BUT quickly feels dry to the touch in seconds. Because I use mineral makeup it is very important for my skin to not be so dry that the powder doesn't blend in, nor can it feel sticky or else the powder will adhere to it. No smell to it. I wish it came in a pump instead of the glass jar it comes in. I feel no need to buy a new moisturizer again! YAY!
Cleansers -Ren - Zostera Marina Cleansing Milk Wash - Dry

This is the first moisturizing cream cleanser that actually washes ALL my makeup off without a lot of rubbing. It doesn't foam up at all...but I think that's because they try not to use any detergents in this product. Your face doesn't feel sqeaky but remains supple to the touch. I also like the smell of it...very calming~
Scrubs -Ren - Jojoba Microbead Purifying Facial Polish
sakura58 7/25/2005 1:33:00 AM
For the amount of product you get, the price is really not too bad. The jojoba beads feel big and gently roll around your face, not scratchy. It doesn't smell like much, a bit pepperminty, so I think it would've been nice if this product smelled as yummy as the rest of the products in the line...but it's not a make or break issue for me. I did notice a couple flakies the next day but I think it's probably better to gently fix your skin and not sandblast it all at once. Good product!
So far this is the best hair treatment I've come across! I don't mind the smell...kinda like it actually. BF can't stand the scent but deals with it. I love the comb/scooper. Just remember that a little goes a long way!
Wow! I can't believe my once dry, cracked, and scratchy heels are so smoothe! They aren't soft like a baby's (yet) but they really have improoved! I use this at night, scrub with my foot thing in the shower, and follow with Neutrogena's Foot Cream. The Foot Cream alone didn't do much but together..I think I found the winning combo! The scent smells fresh and doesn't really bother me. I do put on socks if i'm going to walk around since it is emollient, I only apply to the underside of my foot, and i wash my hands after use. Great product BUT i wish it came in a pump bottle.
I'm on my second jar of this tea. I am a tea freak and the price is pretty decent as far as good quality loose teas go. I tried it first when they served it to me while shopping in their store. After that, I would make it a point to run into the Aveda store to get a small cup while at mall! It also makes a great gift for friends and family. I find that the tea has a lot of little particles in it...so get a fine mesh strainer to keep the bits out of your cup. I hope they never discontinue it!
I'm in LOVE with my Face Case! I am a Med/Light Asian and wear a touch of the Polyester Bride under my eyes, Roach across the lid plus a smidge on the outter bottom corner of the eye, and layer the X shadow dabbed on the top inner half of the top lid. On my lips: Gash is the first layer I use sparingly and layer over it with Shotgun and Carney. I use this case practically everyday, so i bought full sizes of all the products with the exception of Biker Lip Gunk (to pale for my lips) and Midnight Cowboy Eyeshadow (A little goes a very long way ...so I won't need a full size!) I don't like how the shadow ends up sticking to the lip products but with the colors all being so similar, it isn't too big an issue. I wish one of the eyeshadow sponges was a eyeshow brush end instead... but i'm thankful that there are two dual head applicators instead of just one. The positives of this case far out weight these small annoyances. This little palette has saved me many times when I couldn't go home to touch up my face. I received it as a birthday gift and because i raved about it so much... my friend gave me another one a couple months later! LOL! It's so slender and light weight with a good sized mirror...you might as well keep one in the car in case of emergencies! *update* I did a makeover on my cousin and she went out to buy Sellout too! It's just perfect for a girl like her who doesn't wear any makeup and wants to start. Hooray!
What's the big deal with this lip balm? It's so greasy and thick. I hate the way it just sits on top of the lips and you need to wipe off the excess lib balm if you want to apply any color on over it. It doesn't smell pleasant. Although I like the tube because I hate dipping my fingers into pots... I just don't see it's appeal. It didn't irritate my lips so I gave it a 2...just for being average and ho-hum. Won't be buying this again.
Gels/Soaps -Dr. Bronner's - dr bronners assorted scented castille soaps

My friend gave this to me and I love it! The one I have is lavender scented and it makes my whole hallway smell like real lavender whenever i take a shower!~ It hasn't dried out my skin or left it feeling filmy. I love it! UPDATE: Now that I'm done with the bottle my friend gave me, I was in search for more... and holy moly! I can't believe the price!~ I gave it another lipstick 'cuz Dayam!~ What a deal!
This was my first moisturizer when I was 10 years old and after years of switching to different brands and trying upscale moisturizers... I'm back at square one 16 years later! I love how light it is, how it smells, and it's effectiveness. I have dry skin and this is perfect for the summer and I will see how it'll do for the winter flakies that I tend to get!~ I don't feel as if my pores are clogged and it sinks in quickly~
