    bareMinerals Eyecolor

    I can't Bare minerals...

    Bare Escentuals has so many fun colors...and I'm easily distracted by pretty, sparkly things. And people who love this stuff, LOVE this stuff. So while a friend, who's a hard core minerals believer, was getting done up I played and tried on(my hand) every color that tickled my fancy. I walked out with 3 pots and a brush. I was all excited to use them so when I finally did I was very disappointed. The sticker things were hard to peel off, they were super messy and when I put them on, even the sparkly colors were flat and dull. Not only that it felt super dry almost like I had brushed dirt over my eyelids, oh wait it kind of is dirt isn't it? While some people swear by the stuff and it looks great on them, it's not for me.

  • Korres Natural Products Wild Rose Brightening Serum

    I bought the Wild Rose kit, which this was part of. While the tubes look TINY they last quite a long time. The serum outlasted the moisturizer and cleanser. While I'm not sure how this product works individually (but really who uses only brightening serum), in conjunction with the other products it's great. My skin was brighter and my pores visibly smaller. The scent was not overpowering either which was a huge plus for me.

  • MAC Lipglass
    3.0

    MAC Lipglass

    not slick like glass

    Like many others I hate to give MAC a low score, it is my favorite brand, but this lipglass is waaaaay too sticky. The super gloss effect is great if your going for a certain look but too much for normal day to day wear. The shine gives your lips the illusion of extra plump so do it up if you don't plan on walking, talking, eating or drinking.

  • Burt's Bees Repair Serum

    Burt's Bees Repair Serum

    The Bee's knees!

    As with all Burt's products I've used, this stuff is fab! I do find it a little oily to put on my eyes in the morning but it works wonders over night! Helps with the little lines around my mouth, that try to pop up more in the New England winters! I always feel like I look fresh and glow-y in when I get up. Natural ingredients, no testing on animals and a great price especially since as other have stated a little goes a long way!

  • Burt's Bees Naturally Nourishing Milk & Honey Body Lotion

    Ingredients so natural I can use on my face when I run out of my normal daily spf face moisturizer. I have a couple favorite lotions, this being one of them, so I switch back and forth depending on my mood but this is a staple. I never let this run out. Light feel and smell. Great quality, not overly expensive especially for a natural product

    Lush Soap

    Lush Crush!

    I was turned onto Lush products about 5 years ago by a friend! While a lot of their products are too fragrant for my overly sensitive nose, I use Coal Face soap every day on my face. Made partly with guess what....coal! It draws all the yuck out of my pores (to make it last longer I cut it into smaller pieces when I get home and keep the piece I'm using in a small food storage container in the shower). I used to buy my ex-bf Fresh Pharmacy and it worked wonders on his super oily skin. And when I'm feeling a little indulgent I get a bath bomb, which leave the skin like silk and one of their face masks, which are made fresh all the time. Not only are most of their products made with natural ingredients, the don't test on animals, they give back to the community and you can get vegan products as well. Pure goodness!

  • St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

    This is another product I have used since I was much younger but have yet try another so maybe there is better? But I feel it works great! It's a great price, no testing on animals and natural ingredients! As the bottle claims you can use it every day, one day on your face, one day on your arms, one day on your legs and repeat. I could never use it on my face every day but it's great for all over exfoliation too! I was unfortunate enough to be born with a super sensitive bikini area and I actually suck up the discomfort and use the medicated scrub on my bikini area when I shave. and it helps me with in growns!

  • Sally Hansen Hard as Nails

    Sally Hansen Hard as Nails

    Nails it, HARD!

    This is the product I use when I go color free. Super shiny and as the name suggests make my nails hard as steel, or whatever nails are actually made of! Inevitably whenever I go "bare" my nails grow like crazy, which makes a extra nice visit to the salon next time I want color! Plus it's cheap!

  • Chanel Exceptionnel De Chanel Intense Volume and Curl Mascara

    I have been a loyal L'oreal lashout wearer since I was 15. I've tried other brands (including my fave MAC) as well as other types of L'oreal and always go back to the teddy bear brush. I received this as a sample to review and I ended up buying it. The brush gets right to the roots, makes them look longer and curls with out a curler. It's fabulous. The only negatives I have are that the brush holds a lot of mascara so it takes quite a few strokes to get rid of the excess and separate lashes. Plus its so lush and luxuriant(which really isn't a negative) I don't use it for normal daily wear. So now I have to carry around two mascaras but totally worth it!

  • Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    Maybe I didn't use it properly or exfoliate enough but after about a week and a half just as it was getting warm enough to wear shorts out at night I got dressed up and did the mirror check and had to change. The backs of my calves looked like Micheal Jackson's face in the late 80's. It looked like I hadn't washed behind my knees in years. I was psyched with the initial glow and just the right amount of color but never made it through the first bottle. The dirty looked creep-ed up to the crook of my elbows as well. And then once I stopped using it it took a bit for it all to come off so I ha blotches for about a week after I stopped using it, despite scrubbing.
