I snatched up the last tube of Mint Julep Masque at CVS. It comes in a tube, about 8 oz I think, and I paid US$3.79. I have combination, sometimes sensitive skin with rosacea like redness across my cheeks that makes me look like I am always blushing. I actually use this as a cleanser or sometimes put it on before going into the shower and it makes my skin feel good. I also noticed my cheeks are less red. It doesn't dry out my skin too much, which is nice. I especially like that this has sulfur, which is hard to find unless you want to pay $$$ for more "upscale" masks.

Felt like molten lava on my face but afterwards my skin felt incredibly smooth and my pores really did look smaller! I have combination skin, and I'll probably only use this once or twice a week.

I like the Ocean Potion Anti-Aging Sunblock SPF 50. I found it in one of those "overstock" stores for $2.99 so I couldn't pass it up! I had used this in the past and really liked it. The lotion has a medium consistency, isn't greasy and absorbs fairly quickly. I didn't have any noticeable white cast to my skin, either. I use this on my face, and it didn't bother my sometimes sensitive skin. As other reviewers have mentioned, it has an orange creamsicle fragrance, which you'll either love or hate (I love it!).
Skincare - Body -Dr. Bronner's - Lavender Liquid Soap

Dr. Bronner's Lavendar Liquid Castille Soap is a staple in my household! We use it as hand soap in a foaming soap dispenser, diluted with 50% water. I use it to wash my face (I have dry skin). It is super mild and my face feels clean but not tight, irritated or dry. My husband uses it as shampoo, but I feel it's too drying for my hair. It also makes a great bath soak. I haven't tried it for cleaning around the house, but I'm sure it would work fine! The organic lavendar smell is just wonderful, not fake or perfumey!
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - Moistureshine Lipgloss in Glam

Moistureshine Lipgloss in Glam is by far my absolute favorite lipgloss! The color is a sort of strawberry/coral color with no shimmer. It looks opaque in the tube but once applied, using the sponge applicator, it is actually much sheerer but still provides a nice color. I can even apply it without a mirror. This is the lipgloss I use almost every day because the color and texture is just perfect, not too bright, not sticky. My local CVS does not stock this color anymore but I will definitely buy several at www.drugstore.com, as I noticed they still carry this color, thankfully!
