I have repurchased this many times. It makes a wonderful, inexpensive makeup setting spray. I'm almost 57 so I generally don't use powdery foundations or powder over my makeup....except during the heat of the summer. Some of my favorite summer foundations are powder based and on older, dry skin they can look a bit...well, powdery! And if I'm not careful, they can accumulate in …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Alba Botanica - Very Emollient Body Lotion - Maximum for Severely Dry Skin

Jul/02/2016

Where has this stuff been all my life? Aside from the body butter I make myself during the winter months, this is BY FAR the best lotion on the market. It absorbs almost instantly, leaves my skin feeling hydrated for at least 12 hours. I can even layer it. I've tried using as many as 3 thinnish layers at a time and my skin just drank it up.

The fragrance is absolutely …

Honestly, don't know what all the hype is about with this one. I'm on my second tube; the first time I thought for sure I must've gotten a bad one because it was so awful.

Except for that Maybelline one in the pink tube (sorry the name escapes me at the moment) that's been around since the dinosaur era and runs like a deer if you wear contacts or have watery eyes …

Eye Shadow - Aziza - 6 Color EyeShadow Palette

Jul/26/2008

I have Vegas and Memphis and find that, while many of the shades are quite sophisticated (unlike many drugstore shadows), these just don't pack the punch. Overall, I am much happier with the Vegas collection than I am with the Memphis one. Most of the Memphis shades don't show up on my PPP, MACNW20 complexion, which is unfortunate because I was really excited about trying out the green …Read more

Eye Shadow - COVERGIRL - Eye Enhancers - Champagne

Jul/20/2008

First, let me say I am a big fan of MAC eyeshadows, so this was an unusual purchase for me. I bought it because Walgreens was running a B1G1 sale, and I wanted to give it a try because of the reviews here.

This eyeshadow works remarkably well as a highlighter for the inner corner of my eye. I use the pointed end of the sponge applicator included in the packaging rather than a brush …

Crème - COVERGIRL - Advanced Radiance Restorative Cream [DISCONTINUED]

May/24/2008

This is quite possibly the best foundation I've ever bought at any price. I love how it blends in and leaves my skin looking like...well, skin! It does not sit on top of my skin like a film or emphasize the large pores on my cheeks. In fact, it sort of blends the pores away. I've noticed that I don't need as much concealer when I use this foundation. It makes the area under my eyes …Read more

Treatments - Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/15/2006

I wasn't quite sure if I liked this at first, because it takes such diligence to get results. However, I've now decided that I can't be without Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream! When I use it religiously, it keeps my cuticles soft and prevents those nasty, painful hangnails. It also seems to help condition my nails and keeps them from peeling, as they are prone to doing …Read more

Skincare - Body - Dr. Bronner's - Lavender Liquid Soap

5.0

Oct/15/2006

This is a simple product, but a great one! I love the Dr. Bronner's lavender and eucalyptus liquid soaps very much. The vintage label is quite entertaining; it is completely covered with text describing all the amazing ways in which this soap can be used, and also gives snippets of the soap creator's visions, ecological consciousness, and philosophies (i.e., a life dedicated to God …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Softsoap - Moisturizing Hand Soap - Milk and Honey

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/15/2006

This is an all-around, super-duper liquid soap! The milk & honey scent is very homey and comforting, and it lingers a bit after you wash off the soap. No matter how often I wash my hands, this gentle soap never dries out my skin. My hands always feel very soft and moisturized afterwards. The company calls this a hand soap, so presumeably it's meant for hand washing only. I have never …Read more
