If I hadn't won a pkg of these in a gift basket, I would never have made the initial purchase due to price. But OMG these are the most incredible cotton squares for removing v long wear eye makeup. My lids are easily irritated and these are amazing. Well worth the price!

Scrubs - ORIGINS - Modern Friction

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/01/2012

I had used Modern Friction since it first came out - it was definitely my HG scrub. It originally came in a jar and, when they switched to the tube packaging, I had high hopes that it would be less messy. However, I've found that the scrub now is too creamy. I don't know if they changed the formula or if the packaging keeps more moisture in, but it definitely does not perform like …Read more

Fabulous color! This one is the first Zoya polish I ever tried and I find myself going back to it again and again. I love it on my toes and, when I'm feeling particularly vampy, my fingers too. I find Zoya wears extremely well. Just recently bought the Color Lock system and am looking forward to see how it performs.

I'd been looking for something to fade a medium brown sunspot on the bridge of my nose. I'd tried several products with no real success, but thought I'd give this a chance. I've been using it for about a month and was surprised that it has lightened the spot I was working on. I could see a difference after about a week (using is 2x/day). I can still see the spot, but …Read more

Eyeliner - CLINIQUE - Kohl Shaper for Eyes - Black Honey

Jan/21/2008

This is my HG eye liner! This color was part of a LE line in the fall a couple of years ago. They added the cream liner in this shade to the regular line, but not the pencil. I desperately searched for another one of the pencils and I finally scored one on ebay. Nearly at the end of my 2nd full-size pencil, I found a PWP in Black Honey this month. Hallelujah! As a dark haired brunette with …Read more

Skincare - Body - The Body Shop - Exfoliating Gloves

5.0

Oct/01/2007

Love these gloves! They are great exfoliators and they eliminate the problem with scrub grains stuck all over the shower. I like the control they give you . . . much better than a shower puff. I bought a second pair that I use exclusively for scrubbing the bathtub . . . works much better than a sponge!

Hair Treatments - John Frieda - Luminous Color Glaze

Sep/15/2007

I am surprised by some of the negative reviews for the Color Glaze because I have had great luck with it. I have very dark brown, short hair that I do not color (despite the fact I'm 45 - my family is blessed with "don't go gray" genes), but often find my hair will look dull, especially over the winter months. I use the darkest color formula for this a couple of times a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Eucerin - Aquaphor Healing Ointment Advanced Therapy

My dermatologist recommended this for a lip problem I was having. I had been using prescription steroid creams to tackle the problem and it suddenly wasn't working. He recommended eliminating the steroid cream and using only Aquaphor. Within a week my lips were back to normal. I live in cold and snowy upstate NY and I have recommended this many times to friends.

Mascara - The Body Shop - Super Volume Mascara

I too tried this as a freebie and was really surprised by how much I liked it. I lengthens and curls my dark lashes, doesn't smudge and removes easily. My biggest complaint, now that I'm on my third full-size tube, it that it is often out of stock.
