For anyone dealing with PUPPS or other pregnancy-related, itchy, nightmare rashes.... This is amazing stuff! It smells weird--like burning wood--but it gives a few hours of relief from the itching. I had the best luck with using a washcloth to apply it to my skin & then just letting it sit there for 10-15 minutes before washing it off.

The other odd thing that helped the …

Mascara - L'Oreal Paris - Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara in Black

Feb/22/2009

I love this mascara! No matter which one I have used, I have always gotten dark shadows under my bottom lashes by the afternoon where the mascara has flaked off a little. It makes me look tired & I hate it!

This mascara does not flake off AT ALL. It stays put all day, until I wash it off at night. And when I wash it off, it doesn't leave any mess behind. The little tubs …

My facialist uses this mask on my face every time I go in & I have fallen in love with it. I had to have my own tube. It is awesome stuff. It makes my face look glowy & feel moisturized. It also smells lovely, too.

Conditioner - L'Oreal Paris - Vive Pro Nutri Gloss for Normal to Fine Hair

Dec/20/2008

I have this conditioner for dry/damaged hair (yellow bottle with pink on label). It is AMAZING. I have very long hair (elbow-length) that is highlighted & always tends to be dry. I have always used more expensive products like Davines, Bumble & Bumble, Aveda, etc. I switched to the Nutri Gloss shampoo & conditioner a few months ago & have been shocked at how great they are. …Read more

Shampoo - L'Oreal Paris - Vive Pro Hydra Gloss Moisturizing Shampoo With Royal Jelly for Very Dry Hair

Oh how I love this shampoo! I have used Davines and/or Aveda for years, but I wanted to be more budget-friendly, so I snagged this at Target. It is better than Davines AND Aveda.

My hair is long--almost to my elbows--and highlighted. It tends to be dry, esp on the blonde streaks. My hair is no longer dry.... It is silky & smoothe.

I am so happy!

Masks - Fresh - Umbrian Clay Treatment Bar

Oct/12/2008

This bar is ridiculously expensive, but works so well! I use a Biore strip, followed by this mask, followed by a comedone extractor & the gunk comes that survives the Biore strip & the mask easily comes out with the extractor.... The mask pulls the gunk out & leaves my pores looking teeny. I have normal to dry skin & I don't have trouble w/ blemishes. If I do get a …Read more

Self Tanners - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Bronze Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion in Natural Medium Tan

I love this self-tanner! It gives my skin a great natural tan. The glitter is waaaay too much--but since I put it on at night, it rinses off in the a.m. Definitely don't put it on & plan to go anywhere afterwards.

The best tan I have ever gotten is mixing this with Banana Boat's Summer Color in Dark. I mix 50/50 and get an awesome shade that is very natural & not …

Color-wise, this product is awesome! It really makes me look nice & tan. It's easy to apply & doesn't stay greasy afterwards. It smells nice out of the tube. It does have a pretty strong smell when it's developing, but I put it on at night, so it doesn't bug me. Also, the color guide leaves my skin pretty matte-looking, so it looks better after that washes …Read more

Self Tanners - Hawaiian Tropic - Radiance Self Tanner

Mar/10/2008

This self-tanner is a complete waste of money. I bought it in the medium-dark shade. The color difference is barely perceptible & where there is color, it is splotchy & patchy-looking. I have been using self-tanner for a long time & I never have trouble with streaks or splotches. Also, despite all the blah blah blah on the label about how moisturizing it is, it totally dries my …Read more

This mask doesn't really seem to moisturize all that much. I need extra moisture in the winter & this doesn't do it for me.

I prefer Davines or Estee Lauder's moisture masks. Especially Davines--just makes me look so glowy. It is hard to find, though....
