    Pond's Cold Cream Cleanser

    Classic for a reason

    My Grandmother and Mom were the ones who introduced me to this product and while I am not totally loyal to this product I always find myself coming back to it. The mineral oil is a bit heavy when my skin is oily but this will always be one of my favorite choices for taking off makeup especially eye makeup. It doesn't make me to greasy and is a good choice for women who live in dry climates like myself. If you are oily and live in high humidity I could see where it would be way too much. There's a fragrance to it but for me it's nostalgic. This has been around so long because for a lot of people it just works.

  • Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes

    Philosophy Purity Made Simple 3-in-1 Cleanser for Face and Eyes

    A great cleanser for those who like high end products

    I love Philosophy products and really like this cleanser. It has a non-irritating feel that feels so light I initially wondered if my makeup would even come off. Needless to say, this gently removed ALL of my makeup, including eye makeup so I didn't have to use eye makeup remover. YEAH!!! It does have a very mild scent to it but it's not unpleasant. Philosophy products are pricey for those on a budget but if I had to pick three Philosopy products to try this would be the top pick. It was a good value, one bottle lasted me several months and I am always willing to pay a bit more for a truly high quality product...this is it!

  • Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus Humidity Resistant Volumizing Spray Mousse

    I have fine hair but a lot of it so I am constantly on the hunt for big volume at the roots. This is a great product especially if don't have the time/energy for back combing or teasing (healthier for the hair than teasing too!) I have tried everything and this blows them all of the water. A little bit on my roots before a blowdry and there is a noticeable difference. The best part is when it dries it doesn't flake or get stiff. It provides volume that lasts all day.

  • Neutrogena Build-a-Tan Gradual Sunless Tanning Face SPF 15

    I am usually a fan of Neutrogena's skin care products but not this one. All self tanners create a smell due to their ingredients and this is important to remember but this one was especially potent. It was probably more noticeable because it is applied to your face and the smell became even more noticeable after 3-4hours. I did like the fact that the product allows for a gradual build in color because you aren't fooling anyone when you go from pale to bronze in a day! LOL. If you can get over the smell factor, the color created was not bad. I have fair skin with blue undertones and it did not pull orange on me at all but I would highly reccomend blending like crazy around the ear and jawline and into the neck to avoid a noticeable color line.

  • Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

    Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner

    a fun alternative to the night time smoky eye

    I have been a little leery of products with glitter because when they go bad....they go REALLY bad but when I see glitter well done on other people I always love the look. I decided to try this liner based on the reviews. The applicator brush allowed for a precise application and I was surprised to see that no excess glitter ended up on my face. Huge points for that!! It looked awesome over black kohl liner and I am so sick of seeing nothing but the "smoky eye and glossy lips" look on every girl at every club; this is a great alternative. So fresh and a great variety of colors. These look great with the Urban Decay shadow "Midnight Cowboy" or "Midnight Cowboy rides again." I would advise to be careful when applying this to the lower lash line as some product got in my eye and the pieces of glitter burned!!! Otherwise, a cool product.

  • Benefit That Girl

    Benefit That Girl

    Not your traditional primer...

    For me, Benefit's products are very hit or miss. I either really love them or absolutely hate them. Luckily "that girl" is a hit. The applicator is easy to use and stays closed in my makeup bag so it doesn't make a mess. I have a personal pet peeve of products that can leak. When applying it to the skin it has a slight pink shimmer finish and also a mild fragrance. For me it's not a bad smell but for those of you that want a fragrance free product stay away from this one. Without foundation coverage I rate this primer as just average but once I put foundation over it, it went from hoo-hum to ohhh wow!! Gave a subtle pretty glow that looks really awesome in pictures.
