Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash redness soothing cream cleanser
shortea 1/16/2012 3:40:00 AM
i like this facewash, it has a "cooling" effect and doesn't dry my skin out - i use it once a day or every other day. has a nice smell and doesn't lather up much so it's pretty gentle - will definitely repurchase :)
Great mascara, got it with some extra bucks and really love it. Will repurchase :).
Moisturizers -Olay - Active Hydrating Cream - Original

I use the regular beauty fluid during the day and this at night. I have dry, sensitive skin - this cream moisturizes without being heavy or causing breakouts. I actually enjoy the scent, it doesn't bother me at all - the tub it comes in is also fine for my liking, as the cream is thick and it would be difficult to get it out of anything else.

Tried a sample of this from L'oreal's website - I quite like it and am considering purchasing the full size now :). Very moisturizing, not heavy - felt great sleeping with this on my dry skin and waking up feeling soft. Overall i would recommend to at least give it a try
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - dream mousse shadow-lilac cloud

Scored this at the Dollar store and I loooove it! I was on the market for a new light-purple shadow, preferably cream - and this is perfect :D. Has a lovely color and blends easily with fingertip, will def repurchase.
Styling Products -Clairol - Totally Twisted Curl Boosting Mousse
shortea 8/11/2011 8:11:00 PM
I really like this mousse :). I have naturally wavy/borderline loose curly hair. After I wash my hair (and lightly towel dry) I apply a few dollops of HE totally twisted mousse and it does to my hair just what I want it to - defines my waves & curls without looking or feeling crunchy. Even though the bottle says to blow dry with a finger-style diffuser, I usually just air dry or even throw it in a braid afterwards. Will repurchase, it's only $3
ouuuuccch!!! Tried a sample I got from Allure magazine - never again! I followed the directions completely, and like other reviewers, I found these were very painful to remove, and not only left my skin red but also left pieces of paper stuck to my face. Not cool.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Totally Twisted Shampoo
shortea 7/4/2011 4:50:00 AM
I love this shampoo! Smells really good & leaves my naturally wavy hair looking the way it should. I get it on sale when it's $2.99. I like the totally twisted & long term relationships - but I think this one smells the best out of the two. Will definitely repurchase :)
Conditioner -Clairol - Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship
shortea 7/4/2011 4:45:00 AM
I like this conditioner a lot - way more than Aussie's moist. It's thick and gets my hair soft if I leave it on for 2 or 3 minutes before rinsing. Smells good, not overbearing & does not weigh my hair down. My hair is long & thick/wavy/naturally frizzy - I like this conditioner along with the totally twisted - will repurchase.
Love this soap - it's mild, has a classic fresh scent, and I can get a 3 pack at the Dollar Store - overall great buy!!
I enjoy using this soap, for body mostly not particularly on my face - the bar is 'hard' like it is french milled ? It's great when you can score these 2 for $5.
I have to agree with the below comment: Dr. B's peppermint balm > Burt's peppermint balm - I didn't think it was possible, either - but it happened to me too! It doesn't feel super waxy (the way Burt's does, IMO) and keeps my lips moisturized for way longer. Looove!
Lip Treatments -Dr. Bronner's - Magic All-One! Organic Lip Balm - Naked
shortea 6/7/2011 6:53:00 PM
Loooooooove this stuff!! I forgot I had bought 2 of these (1 peppermint & 1 naked) and I stumbled across them the other day and now I am loving them more than my usual Burt's Bees peppermint balm! It glides on much better, and keeps my lips feeling moisturized for longer (Burt's feels way more waxier in comparison, IMO). I think I found my new stash balm.
Cleansers -Olay - Sensitive Skin Foaming Face Wash

Works great at not stripping my sensitive facial skin, while still giving a clean feel. Will repurchase!
