I've only begun my adventure to finding the best BB cream for my skin. Obviously, a woman can't go by reviews alone because many could steer a lady away due to a bad review when it might just be the perfect product for her. So I've tried Garnier BB cream after using L'Oreal brand. The Garnier BB cream offers much more coverage than L'Oreal. It is relatively inexpensive compared to most brands of BB creams, particularly when you consider the "high end" found in Department Stores. For now, Garnier BB cream is doing its job for me with plenty of light coverage. However, I feel like I still need to use a primer before using the BB cream; which my understanding is that the BB cream is supposed to prime your skin. I just don't get that same feeling and look from the BB cream without using a primer first. Essentially I am still paying for two products when only one product is supposed to deliver what the two combined are supposed to. So - the search for this gal is still on and I will continue to buy and try until I find the perfect BB cream.... but now there are CC creams out there too. Hmmmm, what's a girl to do.

Roll on Shimer
Within the last 6 months, I've been seeking out products that are pigmented and have lasting power. I would not have purchased this on my own without trying it first. A full size roll on shimmer came in the monthly Total Beauty Collection. I liked it, I used it, but I don't know if I would have made an effort or the investment to purchase this on my own. I don't know if it was the color choice that I didn't like or if it was just the product in general. I liked it when first rolled on my eye for shadow, but the color and shimmer did not last long. I've come to realize that NYX products are not as pigmented as they claim to be. Bottom line is, use it if you are given as a gift or free samples but I don't think I would invest in any.

TreSemme Split End Repair
I love, love, LOVE this product. Honestly, I don't normally like the TreSemme brand hair products, but I had been looking for a glossing type serum for my dry, brittle over processed hair. My purchase of this product was a result of a last minute purchase. I was impressed immediately once the product came out of the pump to the palm of my hand. I've used this product from just one or two pumps to three pumps on towel dry hair to one pump onto my blow dry styled hair. I was pleasantly surprised to use this weightless product on my fine and thin hair. I give this product a 10 because I have never found a product until now that is as light weight, non greasy and used on either towel dry hair or the finished style just before using finishing spray. I will recommend this product to anyone and every one who has split ends from heat styling, coloring, hot iron, etc. Buy this product, Use this product, LOVE this product!

Don't waste your money!
I have been in search of a good concealer for my under eye area to try and conceal shadows from my puffy under eyes. Unfortunately Cover Girl Fresh Complexion Under Eye Concealer did not do it's job for me. It does not blend well with my foundation. You have to twist and twist the applicator in the bottle to get a good amount of product. I wouldn't recommend this product to any one else. I would prefer to spend a little more money and use something that actually works and blends well with other products for a flawless, finished look. This just doesn't make the cut.

Try it, you'll LOVE it!
For as long as I can remember, I have been using body wash in the shower. I have not used bar soap since I can remember. When I've purchased body wash, my decision has been mainly based on price then smell. Obviously, if it doesn't smell good, I won't buy it. But I happened on this at our local Walmart and I obviously liked the smell so it had that going for it.... but I was also wanting something that was for dry skin. I live in a very dry climate year round and I need something very moisturizing. Which, by the way, all products seem to claim it's good for dry skin. But Dove Nourishing Body Wash lived up to its claims! It works great with a loofah, a little goes a long way. It smells wonderful and I step out of the shower feeling clean, smelling good and without the dry skin! I love this body wash and highly recommend it to anyone with dry skin!

Life time user!
I started using Neutrogena's Visibly Even because I am in my early 40's and I am starting to see the results from all my early years of indoor tanning and sun exposure. I have relatively good skin with an occasional break out so I always look to products that contain salycilic acid and other anti break-out ingredients. This is the perfect combination of cleansing, exfoliation, breakout protection and even skin tone. You couldn't ask for a better product! It foams as it gently exfoliates the skin and leaves a fresh feeling of clean skin but without the dried out feeling of other foaming cleansers. My skin always feels fresh, clean and radiant every time I use it. It's like a facial in a tube! I've noticed an evenness in my skin tone and I definitely notice the clear skin that this product gives me. I get the pleasure of fresh, clean, clear and even toned skin every time I use this product. To any woman who has combination skin with some visible signs of aging and occasional breakouts.... this is the product for you! Try it and you'll fall in love!

Colgate Optic White!!!!
I absolutely love this toothpaste! Within a week, I noticed my teeth were brighter and whiter! As an avid cola drinker, I need something to keep my smile bright without the hassle of the whitening trays, trips to the dentist or even the whitening strips. I use Colgate Optic White twice per day and I love the results. I will never go back to another toothpaste that claims to whiten. Because I've tried those and they do not pale in comparison to the Optic White!!! It's very affordable and it lasts a long time (mostly because I keep it for myself). But its price at around $3 or $4 is worth every penny!

The jury is still out....
I recently purchased two of the Too-Faced eye shadow pallets along with this shadow insurance. I am not quite sold on it yet. When I apply it to the eye lid prior to the eye color, it goes on silky smooth and it has a really nice golden glow to it. I like that I can wear it without shadow if I really wanted to. However, when I apply eye color over the primer, it doesn't feel like it has anything for the color to "cling" to. I didn't notice that the eye color went on any more or less intense without primer. It just didn't have the holding power that I thought it would. Like I said, the jury is still out and I continue to use it once in a while. Maybe one of these days I will just love it, but I'm not there yet.

The one thing I've really liked about the Mary Kay eye primer is that a little bit goes a long way. I've used this primer for years because I use mostly eye shadows from the grocery store rather then department or professional brands. When using a lower cost eye shadow, this primer really helps it to stick and makes the color long lasting and without creasing. Its non greasy formula helps keep color in place all day without smudging off or creasing. I give this product a 7 out of 10 stars!

Clump Free Lashes!
I really love this mascara. I use it as an under coat for another brand of mascara. The reason I use this as a base coat is the brush. It lifts and separates my lashes to prevent clumps. The formula is not very thick so I generally use 1-2 coats, curl again and then use lash blast on the top and it gives me thick, long eyelashes without the clumps. It's all in how you use it
