Lotions/ Creams -Palmers - Palmers Olive Butter Formula

I love love love this lotion. I have bought dozens of different kinds of lotions. I try and stick to the cheap ones but I have invested alot of money on moisturizers. I like the Palmers cocoa butter but can't stand the smell. THis is very fresh smelling and absorbs wonderfully. It isn't heavy or greasy but gives you the same moisturizing power of the heavy lotions. I've found my new staple in moisturizers.
I have finally found a razor that doesn't feel like I'm scraping my skin off. I have been faithful to the Venus since it came out a number of years ago. I have had every make and model of Venus. It too feels like I'm scraping my skin off when shaving but not as bad as the others. It just accepted that I was going to have to admit defeat and live with the pain and razor burn. I bought the Fusion after reading a few reviews on the Alley. I was skeptical about all the hype because most razors that have alot of blades usually have that metal band across them which causes the hair to marr up and makes it absolutely impossible to clean. This razor doesn't have all of the bands. I used it tonight on my arms and WOW WOW WOW is all I can say. It is by far the closest and smoothest shave I have ever had. It didn't feel like I was scraping my skin at all. I didn't even have to exfoliate beforehand. It was like gliding a soft cloth over my skin. I can't say enough good things about this razor. Wal-Mart has them in a set for $9. You get the razor, a spare blade and a sample size of the Fusion HydraGel. It is a little bit high for the replacement blades so that is why I gave it a 3 on the price scale. But, it to me is a small price to pay for a comfortable shave with no nicks, cuts, or razor burn. I'm have thrown out all of my Venus collection and I'm now a faithful Fusion buyer.

This stuff in awsome. I have very very curly hair but it is fine, so it is always fuzzy. I keep it blown out and this product is perfect. It is not too greasy and won't weigh hair down. And, a little dab will do ya. It lasts forever. At $12.50 a bottle, it is a great value. I'm just in love with this product and can't say enough good things about it.

I really liked this scent. It is a very warm and inviting scent. It is a tad bit strong so you can't wear but just a splash. The lotion is a little bit lighter a scent and easier to handle but it tends to burn my skin. Overall, I like the scent but only tiny bits at a time. It is too strong to wear all over. I would buy this again but only body splash or maybe a candle scented like it.

I didn't like this product. It was way too heavy and greasy. It made my hair almost matted. I couldn't even get the round brush through my hair to try and blow it out. I was ok for days when I wear my hair curly. If you use too much, it is like putting baby oil in your hair. It may work better for someone why has a more coarse hair texture but it definately isn't for fine hair.
I bought this brand new off of ebay to give it a try. I wasn't impressed. It didn't even give me a shave as close as a disposable. The vibration only bothered my ability to hang on to the razor rather than making shaving easier. I won't buy this product again and I'm glad that I didn't pay much for it.
I got this scent for my DH for Valentine's Day and I was absolutely thrilled with this scent. It smelled so clean on my husband. He even got alot of comments from other women about how much they loved it. It made me feel proud that he was my Husband and they couldn't have him.
This has to be a perfume that you need a certain body chemisty for. I know alot of people who say that this will not stay on them. No perfume stays on me except this one. A little bit goes a long way with this one on me. I can put it on in the morning and can still smell it in the evening. This is a staple in my perfume collection.
I love this scent. It is a great day time scent and my husband loves it too. It is a scent that is to me one of a kind. I always get compliments when I wear it. Not too musky, not too sweet. Just a great perfume.
This was a bad experience for me. It completely burnt my hair up. It was fried. Also, my hair was only straight for about 10 minutes before the curl started coming back. But, the curl was no longer actually curl, it was a flat frizzy wave. It was awful. It may work for hair was that is not that curly and more course but not for mine. I ended up having to get all of my hair cut completely off. 2yrs. worth of growth, gone in 30 minutes. OUCH!
I didn't like this flat iron too much. I bought the ceramic one with the temp control. It served it's purpose and straightened my hair pretty well. The only problem I had with it was durability. It is not made to last. I went through three in a year. The first one just stopped heating all of the sudden. The second and third ones, the ceramic started chipping away to reveal the harsh metal after about 3 months. They are not made to stand up to daily use. I invested in a chi and I have never looked back. I bought my chi 4yrs. ago and it still looks like I just took it out of the box.

This is for my husband. He is very fair skinned and wanted just a touch of color before we went to the beach this year. He applied it exactly like he was supposed to and I even helped him just in case. We bought the fair/medium so he wouldn't get too much too soon. After the first application, he was orange. Not tan, orange. It has a horrible color. I'm more olive skinned so I tan very easily. I guess I'm just lucky that I don't have to use self tanners.
I love, Love, LOVE this scent. It is very modern and can be worn for day or night. My husband also loves this. It is kind of $$expensive$$ but you can get a good deal on it on ebay.

Do Not Buy this Razor. It is a waste of money. I hated this. I unfortunately am a hairy chick and have to shave all over. The bar of soap wore down funny and only worked well for one shave. If it didn't wear funny and lasted longer, it might work. I don't think that there is any possible way to help this razor.
Smelt good. Moisturized for about 30 seconds and that is it!!
