Gels/Soaps -Suave - Cocoa and Shea Butter Body Wash
sharon517 10/10/2012 1:41:00 PM
This stuff smells soooo good. It provides a good lather too. I prefer Dove or Olay body wash but if money is tight this is my next choice. Wish it made my skin signficantly softer. Instead I just feel clean not soft. The bottle is pretty big and lasts a little over a month with the most moderate amount used. The best thing about this body wash really is the smell. Otherwise its just OK.
Deodorants -Secret - Secret Scent Expressions in Coco Butter Kiss

Smells soft and sweet. Glides on smooth and keep me dry. No complaints here! I would buy again.
I picked this up at Big Lots for under 5 bucks! I figured it wouldn't be a huge loss if it didn't work for me. I have very short, thin lashes, with zero volume.Anyway, I've been using it for a little over a month and I have seen a difference in the length of my lashes, although it is subtle. However, the amount and volume of my lashes didn't change. The applicator has a tapered shape so it makes the little lashes easier to get to. What I like most about this product is that it doesn't flake (!!!!!) I've tried so many mascaras that were good, but flaked horribly, thus making them completely useless by the end of the day. One thing to note is that this product does smudge, so I would recommend you get waterproof if you have watery eyes, or plan on crying alot (smile). Also I really wish it could not only lengthen lashes, but add volume to the lashes. All in all, its a good product, and worth a try if you want a cheap alternative to lengthening your lashes.
Bath Treatments -Bath and Body Works - Midnight Pomegranate Body Spray
sharon517 6/21/2012 9:28:00 AM
This scent is a little darker, and muskier than the scents I usually get from B&BW. I like fruity, floral scents. I just picked up this scent yesterday and sprayed it on this early morning. I can still smell it on my skin and it's mid morning. Of course, it's not as strong as perfume but pretty good staying power for a body spray. I would purchase again, and I got it for less than 2 bucks (semi annual sale!!)..I'm going to look for the body wash too, and lotion so I can layer the scents.
This just an OK fragrance. Out of the 2 fragrances I normally wear, this one is my least favorite. The bottle is really small, and the scent doesn't scream floral or orchid to me. Rather, its kind of sweet, like candy or something. I wish the scent lasted longer too. I got this as a gift, but I wouldn't buy it.
I'm suprised at how low the ratings are for this one. I loveeeee this fragrance. I actually try to ration out my usage of it, because i got a pretty small bottle for Christmas and I want to make it last as long as possible lol. It's very sexy, and sensual. Not for the younger crowd at all. It lasts all day long and guys love it. A little goes a long way, and it may be overpowering for some if you spray too much. I will purchase again when my bottle (finally) runs out.
I got this about 2 months ago, and it looks like I've barely used it, even though I use it generously multiple times per week. That being said, the bottle is HUGE in terms of perfume bottles. The rubber top is my only complaint about the packaging though. It will easily slip off if you happen to pick it up by the top. The scent is one of my favorites, sweet, soft, with a light musk, but not over powering. I can faintly smell it still by mid afternoon, if I only apply it to my skin. I find that spraying it on my clothes too helps prolong the scent too.

I got this at the semi annual sale. Very moisturizing formula, without being overly greasy. The scent is very romantic, strong but not too strong. And, it lasts all day. Sadly, I haven't seen it since the semi annual sale, so I'm not sure if it's been discontinued or what. I'd buy it again if I ever see it in the stores again.
Mascara -Cover Girl - Professional Super Thick Lash Mascara
sharon517 2/16/2011 6:49:00 PM
I bought this mascara on a whim because I normally buy lengthening mascara; I wanted to try something new. I'm very impressed, this is the first mascara I've tried that has zero flakes or clumping. My only complaint is that the wand is really big and i wind up scraping excess mascara off. If it wasn't for that, I'd give it a 5. For just around 5 bucks, this is a good mascara and performs better than the more expensive ones.
This is my go-to product if i have any minor to major skin discoloration. It's an oil base but it doesn't feel oily when rubbed onto my skin. You have to use it very consistently to see results though. If you're the type to try new skin care products often, and are impatient with results Bio Oil isn't for you. It's quite pricey, even for the smallest bottle but don't be fooled, this will last you a very long time. It can be hard to find in many stores, often it's sold out or on the bottom shelf, or even mixed in with first aid ointments. Overall, it's a great product that I would purchase again.
Quite possibly the worst mascara I've ever worn. The mascara tube is very small, and the bristle/wand is almost laughably skimpy and short. I purchased this because i wanted to give it a try, it was reasonably priced and i thought the protein in it would be beneficial to my lashes. WRONG. The formula is extremely wet and soppy, i've gotten plenty on my eyelid by accident. If you happen to rub your eyes, smudge city. It literally wipes off immediately. There's no lash lengthening or thickening that with this mascara. I will never purchase a Wet N Wild mascara again.
I would like to give this mascara a high rating but it flakes terribly! It does lengthen my eyelashes without any clumps but the flakes convinced me that its not worth repurchase.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Oil-Control Foaming Cleanser- New
sharon517 7/26/2010 11:23:00 AM
I have very oily/dry skin. Generally when I wake up in the morning my nose and forehead are shiny. At first I thought it was the moisturizer I was using, but I realized that I had combination skin. I picked up this product about 2 days ago, and have had no shine anywhere on my face since then. I've always been a fan of foaming cleansers, and this one doesn't disappoint. It creates a rich lather and has a pleasant smell that's not too overpowering. It also doesn't dry my skin out, and leaves it soft to the touch. It's a bit expensive, I paid just a little under 7 bucks at Walmart for it. But a little goes a long way. I would highly recommend this product to anyone with oily and/or combination skin.
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Go 360 Clean Deep Facial Cleanser
sharon517 2/23/2010 8:00:00 AM
I used the cleanser with the srublet and it irritated my skin! I thought maybe i had let it stay on my face too long but in the morning i noticed the skin under my eyes was very dry and tight. i used the cleanser/scrublet again and I applied some vitamin e oil under my eyes and put on my dove moisturizer. even though i put moisturizer on my skin feels tight and dry and its late afternoon! I did notice that the bottle says if dryness or irritation occurs to use less frequently, no need for that, I'll never use this product again. It's overpriced and is one of the worst cleansers i've ever tried.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Expert Eyes Eyeshadow - Amethyst
sharon517 11/2/2009 9:07:00 AM
LOVE LOVE LOVE this shade. I have dark skin and dark brown eyes, and it looks amazing on me. Not overly loud and obnoxious or too glittery. It blends so well too, i plan on using it with my Almay Trio mascara for brown eyes. Finally a purple eyeshadow that has the right amount of "pop" for my eyes. This is my first Maybelline shadow in quite some time, so I'm eager to check out the other shadows. Will buy again for sure!
