  • bareMinerals SPF 25 Mineral Veil

    I got this in a "get started" kit I bought at Sephora. It came with a DVD and in it the woman kept repeating that this step shouldn't be skipped - and she is right! You don't NEED it to get the bare minerals look, but you will look so much better if you do. It is just the perfect finishing powder for your face. It completes the look by giving you a soft glow - just like the old movie stars would have but they had it thanks to a special camera lens. Definitely worth it.

    bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation

    I am a convert! Everything they say is true!

    I wasn't sure how much I would like using bare minerals - not having a pressed powder seemed too inconvenient for me. But, I love it! It is easy to control how much coverage you have - so I can go for a more natural look for daytime/work and put more on at night. And if you like a natural look - this is the best product for you! I like that it has the SPF for every day protection. And it is true - my skin has definitely improved since I have been using it. Also, it LASTS all day! I have never found a foundation that does. And you don't feel like you're wearing make up.

  • Aveeno Stress Relief Body Wash

    I love this body wash. It has a gentle, lovely smell that truly does relax you. It keeps my skin moisturized and I use it for shaving as well. It gives me a nice, close shave. I am currently on my 3 bottle of this!

  • Olay Total Effects Night Firming Treatment

    I generally try to mix up my facial creams like you would with shampoo. But this one I just keep buying. I love the smell, it goes on easily, and the small bottle lasts a long time. I love that I feel like I am really getting my skin healthy with this. In the morning my skin looks amazing - and feels very soft and smooth. I think I even use less make up because of it - which is better for your skin. Definitely worth trying!

  • Olay 2-in-1 Advanced Ribbons Body Wash

    Yes, I actually threw out this product instead of just using it up and never buying it again. I like the idea of the ribbons and the moisturizing it promised. The consistency is weird - which I expected - but it doesn't mix well at all. This meant that I was spreading clumps of product all over my body. It does smell nice, which is why I gave it two stars instead of just one. Other reviewers on here say they use it for shaving. Personally, if I can't use it as a body wash and for shaving - i'm not interested. Also it was really thick so I couldn't get a close shave.

  • L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

    L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray

    I love this Hairsrpay

    My roommate got a free sample of this and as soon as I tried it, I had to run out and buy a bottle. I have the "extra strong hold" and it does hold well. but it also "disappears at the stroke of a brush" which I love because that way you don't have the hairspray look or feel - you can still run your fingers through it. Also, it smells delicious! I always get compliments on how my hair smells when I use it. I have fine hair - but a lot of it & this spray is perfect for me.

  • Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream

    Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream

    Must-Have for Extremely Dry Skin/really soft hands

    Yes, it is expensive. Yes, it is really thick. BUT, do you have a job where you have to wash your hands a million times a day? Are you hands dry, cracked, or do they bleed easily? If you have really dry skin (or are just obsessed with soft hands) then this is a must have. You put it on at night (wear gloves to bed if its for your hands) and your hands will feel better in the morning. When my hands were really bad, I used just sit there rubbing it in, and I swear: instant relief. My hands soaked it up. On another note: if you just want really soft hands, use this as part of their 4-part hand spa-treatment & you will be amazed! I have naturally soft hands, so i didn't think they could get much better. they did!

  • Mary Kay MK Signature Bronze Highlighting Powder

    I have very light skin and I love this bronzer. It is light enough so that I don't look like I put on bronzer, but dark enough that it gives me a great glow. It has a tiny bit of iridescence to it, so it really gives you that just out of the sun look. I'm not sure how it would look on darker skin, but I definitely recommend it on lighter skin - when it is hard to find a bronzer that looks natural.

  • Mary Kay TimeWise Age-Fighting Lip Primer

    The tube is so small and expensive and it wasn't easy to put on only a little bit. It felt like one application went through 1/8 of the product. Also, I really didn't see any results. Basically it just functioned as an expensive chap stick. skip it!

  • Arm & Hammer Essentials Natural Deodorant

    Arm & Hammer Essentials Natural Deodorant

    Aluminum free. Smells Good, Works Well

    Using Aluminum free deodorant is important to me for 2 reasons: the associated breast cancer with aluminum deodorants & softer underarms. I use the "unscented" because I prefer the way it smells. The scent is light and clean. The deodorant actually offers me better protection than I have had with anything else - and I have a fair amount of underarm perspiration. It isn't expensive, so give it a try!
