Clean and Classic
It's hard to find a powder that won't make me look too pale. I am fair skinned with freckles and most ivory products then to make me look way too washed out. but I've been using CoverGirl Clean Pressed Powder for a few years (in Ivory 205). Not only does it NOT hide my freckles (I <3 my freckles) or make me look like death, it completes my look, doesn't cause break-outs and is reasonably priced.

I've always loved Olay products. and I finally gave in and bought a bottle of the firming lotion. I am not overweight but I have dimples on my thighs., so I figured it couldn't hurt to try the lotion. I just want to say that it does smell great, and it does moisturize but I never really saw much firming-action. I think most of the firming comes from the act of massaging the lotion into your skin. I also sometimes don't have time to apply this and products like this seem to work best when the user is consistent.

Sexy and Sweet!
I actually have tried the shower gel and current have a different form of this for the shower (Creamy Body Wash). It started out when a friend gave me a little set with lotion and body wash in this scent for Christmas. I fell in love with the scent because it reminded me of a perfume I had. I used up the tiny bottle of the shower gel in a month or so and then wanted more! So my boyfriend bought me the creamy body wash and the body lotion. I love the scent, the lotion and wash are long lasting in the scent department. I've had people ask me about what perfume I was wearing! It also hasn't caused my skin to burn. I know some people are very sensitive to perfumes in their body washes. I think I just got lucky because in the past, some body washes with scent have caused burning sensations--especially on just shaved legs. but it still might cause that problem for other people. but overall I <3 it:)

Let this dry after applying or you could end up bleaching your clothes!
Originally I had bought the Vanilla Chai scent and then went on and bought the English Bloom scent. I've smelled all the different scents (at the store) and found the Vanilla Chai to be the best one--not too flowery or weird smelling. The English Bloom scent is alright but once it's used up, I won't be buying it again. When applying the deordorant, I used to put on my shirt first and then put the deodorant on underneath it (thinking it would save me from getting any stains from the shirt rubbing the pits as I put it on). Since it was clear, I figured even if it was wet it wouldn't be an issue since it was CLEAR. A few months went by and I started to notice bleach stains on some of my shirts--some of my FAVORITE shirts.:( I tried to figure out what it was. I used acne medication but I'd only use it at night (and I keep something on my pillow case so it doesn't get bleached--it's happened in the past before I knew better). Then I thought it was my lotion but that didn't seem all that likely, either. Recently I was at a store buying some clothing. I went to try on some shirts I had picked out and when I lifted my arms to take off my own shirt, that was when I noticed the arm pits were bright orange! Well, not as bright as some bleach stains since the shirt itself was light blue but there was definitely bleach stains under my arms!! How embarrassing! That's when I realized that the stains in other locations on my shirts were from the deodorant getting rubbed on somehow before it was dry. Then I read online that sometimes deodorant will bleach when mixed with some people's sweat. I read reviews on Amazon about the same issue with the deordorant and that was when I knew that was the real cause behind the ugly stains that you can never get rid of. I normally don't buy Secret but the new scents drew me in. The cost is a little high for me but I thought it worked well and I never felt like I smelled like BO. I still am using it because I have some left over, but I put it on BEFORE dressing and I let it dry before putting on my shirt. It stinks to have to do this, especially if I am in a hurry. Since I've been letting it dry, it seems to not be staining like it was previously but I am still not 100% sure if that is the case. As soon as my supply runs out, I might try a solid deodorant instead since I am now afraid other clear gels will cause the same issues. This stinks (haha, no pun intended) since I feel like gels work way better:( Good luck!

Works well and the bottle lasts a long time!
I've had one bottle of this serum going on for several years. I suppose that is because I have shorter hair and I try not to heat style everyday. but when I do use it, it works well! My hair is blond and serums tend to make it look greasy and gross but this product never has--as long as I apply it to wet hair and blow dry.

Works for me
I try different mascaras all the time. I find this mascara is easy to layer but it can take time and effort. I feel like the bristles could be a little longer or closer together--and the container it comes in is a little long for my taste. but overall it is one of the better mascaras I've tried through the years and the price doesn't break the bank! I find it usually lasts all day and it comes off easily.

Be careful of products in the same line with different names but virtually same product!
I've always loved Vo5 products, especially their leave in conditioner. Then at one point I bought their heat defense spray thinking it was different from the detangler spray (which came in a larger but different style bottle and was considered a different product) but one day I happened to compare their ingredients and they were exactly the same! but buying the detangler was a better deal than the heat defense spray. The product is good but be sure you're getting the best deal for the size you're buying!

Less is More
This acne treatment only contains 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide but that is the way you want to go! Most products contain 10% and usually just irritate and dry out skin. I've found that this product works and it doesn't have to be harsh. You do have to be consistent about putting it on in the AM and the PM and it can take up to a month to really start noticing that it DOES work!

I've been using Neutrogena skin enhancer tint for 6 months now and I <3 it! It goes on smoothly, blends well. Not to mention it contains SPF and retinol treatment all in one! It is 10 dollars at walmart but lasts for a long time. The only negative thing I can think of is how sometimes the pump gets clogged with dried up makeup but I've managed to ignore that;)

Works really well!
I got my hair cut shorter than I usually do and even though my hair is wavy and coarse, I didn't have as much body as one might think. I decided to go with a product that would give me volume but not break the bank and I've always loved the Tresemme
