I REALLY love this! My previous HG pressed powder was the Physicians Formula Healthy Wear (I think it's getting discontinued?) but this works so much better. It made my skin super smooth which was probably the serum like someone else said. BUT if you have dry patches, this makes them stand out! It made my skin look almost perfect (besides the patch issue lol) I bought this for like11 bucks at Target which seems a lot for drugstore but 11 sure beats 30-40 LOL. I will buy this again:)
Treatments -Boots - Expert Sensitve Hydrating Serum
sourrcherry 10/13/2012 5:41:00 PM
This makes my skin so soft without feeling greasy or oily. I don't like all the parabens in it...but I love it that much to make an exception! It looks pretty generic but I kinda like that about it. I like that it has a pump too (:
I got this mainly for my nose because my pores always look terrible ): It's pretty neat how the color turns dark where there's extra oil or other stuff in your skin...and you really have to shake this stuff up because its super watery. It also comes off super easily which I love compared to the queen helen mint mask. This should last me awhile only using it on my nose (ill save the QH mask for the rest of my face) it's about $9 at target (:
BB Cream -Maybelline - Dream Fresh 8-in-1 BB Cream
sourrcherry 10/13/2012 12:15:00 AM
This is really like a tinted moisturizer (for all of you expecting color..it clearly says 'sheer' right on the front) I absolutely HATE foundations so this plus a finishing powder works great for me...it doesn't last very long but I don't think I've ever found any makeup product with lasting power (at least for me) one bottle lasted me about 4 months using it 4/5 days out of the week. I just bought my second bottle and ill continue buying more!
Primer/ Corrector -Neutrogena - Shine Control Primer
sourrcherry 10/13/2012 12:11:00 AM
I bought this about a week ago and so far I love it! I don't understand why everyone is saying its grainy...mine is actually creamy feeling and doesn't feel like sandpaper at all LOL. It has a nice scent too but usually I don't like my face products to have added fragrance. It didn't make my pores smaller like it says, but it helped a bunch with the shine. I'll def buy this again!
Lip Treatments -Blistex - European Formula Lip Conditioner
sourrcherry 7/24/2012 6:39:00 PM
LOVE!! I wish it came in a stick because I don't like the tub packaging of anything really. I was away from home for a week and forgot to bring a lip balm and got super chapped/sunburnt lips. I found this by the lotion at Walmart and bought it since it looked like a new one. This is seriously the best kind I've ever used..it made my lips feel SO much better and so soft! This and Dr Bronners lip balm are the ONLY ones I will continue to buy. (:
This is my favorite! I recently started retin-a and this is the only moisturizer that works well with it. It feels cool on the skin, absorbs fast, not greasy at all, and it improved the look of my skin in the almost three weeks I've been using it. It's around $5 at Walmart for this huge thing and I know it's gonna last me forever. My only complaints are that it could have had a better packaging (I wish it had a pump, and maybe not as big..too bulky to travel with) and no SPF, so I only use it at night or if I'm not going out anywhere. SPF is a must especially on retin-a!!
I love this so much! I take six of the 5000 mcg (three a time, morning and night) and it worked miracles for me. Yes I know that may be a lot, but whatever your body doesn't need comes out in your pee lol..and it never broke me out. Some brands are expensive, but the Target brand (60 5000 mcg capsules) is around 6 or 7 bucks when other brands with a lower mcg can be up to 12. Since this also helps metabolism, I noticed my stomach is a bit slimmer (:
Eye Shadow -Wet 'n' Wild - Color Icon Trio - Walking on Eggshells
sourrcherry 6/19/2012 5:25:00 AM
This was only okay for me. The pink and white shadows look the same against my skin tone so I have been wearing a different lid color. Is also a mission just to open the thing..I won't buy again because I'd rather spend a few more bucks to get a better drugstore eyeshadow (revlon colorstay quads are great)
Lotions/ Creams -Shea Moisture - Organic Raw Shea Butter Lotion
sourrcherry 4/18/2012 7:40:00 PM
I just ran out of my trusty Hempz lotion and it wasn't in stock at my salon so I found this at Target and decided to give it a try. Well, I am in love! It works almost better for me than Hempz! The only downside is the bottle could use a pump since its so thick. I'm excited to use this for the sunburns I'll be getting this summer :D 10 a bottle may seem pricey to some, but it had all natural ingredients (not like the brands that say they do!) and it works amazingly! I would def buy again!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
sourrcherry 4/16/2012 6:38:00 PM
The ELF primer works almost as good for me as this one does. I only use this for special occasions..I would buy again but it's not something that I would NEED to have right away.
It took me a little bit to really like this scent..but now it's one of my favorites! The lasting power sucks though ):
I have this in the original and pomegranate scent. These are the best lotion I've ever bought! They might be pricey to some but it's really worth it. It's great for after tanning, sunburns, itchiness, rashes, and peeling/dry skin..pretty much anything! I recommend the pomegranate one over original..it has a light fruity scent :)
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Strawberry Lip Balm
sourrcherry 4/16/2012 6:23:00 PM
Its not as moisturizing as the rosebud salve, but it still works! I love the real strawberry smell of it :) I wouldn't buy again because this thing will last me forever..I'll probably end up giving it away before I finish it lol
I only have the color succulent and I love it! It's turns into a somewhat bright pink on my lips, and it's like a lip tint as well because the color will stay on my lips long after the balm comes off. Why do they always discontinue the good products? :(
