    L'Occitane Honey & Lemon Sweet Sugar Scrub

    Smells great, leaves skin soft

    This is one of my all-time favorite scrubs. I like that the texture is soft but NOT gloopy or drippy. It's the perfect blend of emollient oils and sugar, so it scrubs and moisturizes without being too greasy. I LOVE the fresh, sweet scent of lemons and honey, it's mouthwatering. It doesn't make my tub slippery like so many scrubs do, and rinses nicely. My skin is left soft but not greasy.

  • Olay Pro-X Age Repair Lotion with SPF 30

    I'm only 30 and don't have deep wrinkles so I'm not sure if the aging benefits are really doing anything for me. It's also not cheap at all, at $42 a bottle. What redeems this product for me is the texture. I want to wear SPF 30 sunscreen every day, and so far it's been tough finding a sunscreen product that didn't feel greasy on my face, didn't clog my pores or cause breakouts, and that worked okay under makeup. This product so far has managed all three - no oil slicks mid-day, no breakouts (knock on wood) and okay under makeup. I could easily become a devoted sunscreen wearer with this product, rejecting other more expensive SPF moisturizers I've tried.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Conditioner

    While I really like the EverPure Moisture Shampoo, the jury is still a bit out on the conditioner. I like the scent, a minty herbal fragrance, and it rinses out well. But my hair isn't left as shiny as other conditioners I've used, and it contains mineral oil, something I usually avoid. However, I don't hate it, it just didn't knock my socks off. My hair is soft after using it, which is what I'd expect from a moisture conditioner. I probably won't use it again when this tube is gone.

  • L'Oreal Paris EverPure Moisture Shampoo

    I've been rather picky about shampoo the last few years, mostly using salon brands. I'm really pleased with this less expensive salon alternative. It's sulfate-free, and is supposed to protect the color if you color-treat your hair. It's also supposed to help moisturize dry hair. I haven't colored in a while, but my hair does tend to be dry, and it feels softer after using this shampoo. A little goes a long ways, so with my short hair I'll be using the bottle for a while. I like the fresh scent, and there is tons of lather. Overall, two thumbs up for L'Oreal.

  • Stila Pomegranate Crush Lip & Cheek Stain
    8.0

    Stila Pomegranate Crush Lip & Cheek Stain

    Lovely color, good texture.

    Pomegranate Lip & Cheek stain is a good combination of color and texture, making it an ideal product or me. First, the color is a dark berry color, but it's not too purple or too pink. It enhances my natural lip color without looking garish. Many stains are either too hot pink on my lips or too purple-blue (which looks like I've been eating blue popsicles), but this one is practically perfect. My other major complaint with lip stains is texture - I hate watery, runny stains that are hard to apply. This one is more of a gel texture, which makes application a snap. It dries a tad bit sticky, so I took off two stars. I like that it doesn't completely dry out my lips like so many stains do. A touch of lip balm corrects the stickiness issue. Overall, this is a product I'll use until it's gone and consider re-purchasing. I haven't tried it on my cheeks yet.

  • Maybelline New York Dream Mousse Blush

    I love Dream Mousse Blush because of it's ease of use. You can use your fingers or a stippling brush (fingers are easiest!) and it blends so smoothly on the skin. I like how sheer it is . It looks dark in the jar but the color on your skin blends out very sheer and natural looking. You can build the color if you want more, but personally I prefer the lighter look. It has pretty good life on the skin, although I think it could be better. Overall, a great budget beauty buy.
