  • Yves Saint Laurent Beauty YSL PARIS Eau De Toilette Spray

    The perfume is named after Paris, the adored city of Yves Saint Laurent, who created it as a tribute to the Parisiennes who are always elegant, romantic, vivacious, ironic, simple and charming. Paris is a brilliant harmony of roses and violet flowers. This woody-floral starts with bergamot and violet, followed by may rose and iris at its heart, ending with the sensational warmth of sandalwood. It was created in 1983. I would say it's a perfect scent for those who like heavy, floral perfumes! I personally adore Yves Saint Laurent and Paris, so that's another reason why I'm head-over-heels in adoration of this fragrance... I would call the scent "classic" and "energizing." The scent lasts a long time on my skin, continuing on the morning after.

  • Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer

    I use the Proactiv 3-step (cleanser, toner, and repairing lotion), however this product (Proactiv Green Tea Moisturizer) dries out my skin to the extreme! I have combination skin, so where my skin is dry the moisturizer dries it out even more (to the point where I had dry patches on my chin and around my lips) and my oily T-zone is slightly shinier after I use this product. Plus, the moisturizer's texture is too light for me!

  • Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

    Best applied with fingers

    Your lips will definitely be seriously pampered, nourished, and silky soft. You'll feel it the moment you wear it! I love the Rosé--the rose scent, the sheer tint, the luxurious moisturization, and of course the SPF 15! But, I found it best to apply it with your fingers because if you apply it directly from the tube, too much product goes everywhere and it's such a waste (especially since it's quite a splurge)! I think the mini versions work better than the full-size versions, in regards to ease of application.

  • Maybelline New York Great Lash Clear Mascara

    I use this to keep my eyebrows groomed and tamed. It's also a great mascara for those who wear contact lenses. Works amazingly for a no-fuss, groomed and natural look!

  • Proactiv Repairing Treatment

    Proactiv Repairing Treatment

    Major acne fighter

    I use this as the third part of my Proactiv skincare regimen. I've been using it for years now and it continues to work wonders--fighting acne and leaving my skin flawless as well as glowing. It costs the most out of the other two products within the Proactiv 3-step as this product is the real acne fighter! it goes deep into your pores to combat acne--preventing acne as well as eliminating signs of acne. It is best to follow it up with a moisturizer, as it can be drying to the skin initially. Start off using it once a day and move up to morning as well as evening.

  • Proactiv Revitalizing Toner

    Proactiv Revitalizing Toner

    Deep cleans pores

    I use it as part of my Proactiv 3-step skincare regimen: cleanser, toner, and repairing lotion. It cleans out the pores really well and I can see the evidence on the cotton ball/pad. It lasts a very long time, so it's well worth the buy! My skin feels refreshed after using the toner, and it's best to immediately follow it up with the Proactiv repairing lotion, moisturizer, and sunblock.

  • Proactiv Renewing Cleanser

    Proactiv Renewing Cleanser

    Brand loyal to Proactiv

    I never had crazy acne and I usually only get acne if I don't wash my face as often as I should (every morning and night) or after I've had my face waxed. I started Proactiv since it worked wonders for another person I know and the infomercials sold me. When I began to use this product, I broke out like I've never broke out ever before in my life... my facial skin was going through major hell--serious dryness and extreme acne that I've never had before in my entire life--but I pulled through it as I knew that my skin was just getting adjusted to the extreme chemicals within the product. Now, I have flawless skin and I rarely ever get a zit! I'm extremely brand loyal to Proactiv--I use the cleaner, toner, and repairing lotion religiously every day! The products are expensive, but well worth it and a little goes a long way. Plus, the products (especially the toner) last for a long amount of time!

  • L'Oreal Paris Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen SPF 50+ Liquid Silk Sunshield for Face

    I don't wear sunscreens usually because it's such a trouble for me. But, I've been pleasantly surprised by L'Oreal Paris' Sublime Sun collection. They're easy to use and, best of all, they don't leave behind streaks or residue--unlike other sunscreens (like Neutrogena) that I've used in the past. I use L'Oreal Paris' Sublime Sun SPF 30 spray-on sunscreen for my exposed skin and use this product (SPF 50+) for my face. Shake vigorously so the product comes out properly, and apply liberally. It's great for my combination skin! It also leaves your skin feeling soft. It is a bit pricey ($11+), but well worth it, in my opinion.

  • St. Ives Naturally Clear Green Tea Scrub

    Does a great job cleaning and exfoliating the face, but it leaves behind some residue on the edges around my face. I only use it when I'm at home and won't be going anywhere.

  • Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

    Aveeno Eczema Therapy Moisturizing Cream

    Great for eczema-prone skin

    It's fragrance-free, steroid-free and works great for my eczema-prone skin. I use to use Curel for dry/itchy skin and it sort of worked, but on and off. This product has worked great for me each and every time that I've used it. Of course, I do still have to take additional measures (along with this body lotion) in order to keep my eczema in check such as applying the lotion in the direction that hair grows, finishing my showers with cool/cold water to soothe my skin, and applying lotion immediately after showering for ensure moisturization. It also leaves my skin soft.
