Bring on the DRAMA!
Lancome makes the best mascara, hands down. And I would know. A few years ago, I went on the search for the HG and bought about 10 different kinds (sadly, before Sephora came out with that sampler set). I've used Lancome's Fatale, Osciallation, and now Hypnose Drama, always with the same dream. Turn my puny lashes into big flasy ones. Now, Fatale and Oscillation are both excellent. But Hypnose Drama is UNREAL. Literally, it looks like I'm wearing false lashes almost. The only con is it can be a little clumpy, but that's fixed with a good metal mascara comb and some patience. The brush takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do you wonder why all brushes aren't shaped like that because it's the best for getting the most bang out of your mascara.

Best you will ever buy
I'm an expert on sunscreen. I was shying from the sun before it was cool, and long before everyone was making a big deal out of it. I've tried a lot of different suncreens over the years, and this is hands down the best by miles. I've used Neutrogena Dry Touch and Age Shield for years (before you could get Mexoryl in the US) and they're good, but not good under make up. I can't wear less than SPF 50 ever (rain or shine, all four seasons, dermatologists orders), so I need something that goes on under make up and doesn't make my foundation slide off by 2PM. This goes on ultra smooth, sinks in easily, and gives a totally matte finish. In fact, it almost works as a foundation primer in and of itself! It's pricey, but you don't need a lot of it. Also, I only use it on my face and neck. I still use the cheaper stuff for my body, so a bottle still lasts me a month or so. But it's worth every penny you pay. Your make up stays flawless, your skin stays shielded from the sun.

Worth the Hype
I've been hearing the buzz on this product for years, but never tried it because I have short hair. Now that I'm growing my hair out, I figured I'd see what the fuss was about. The fuss is about the best styling product EVER! It gives weightless volume and hold. My hair has never looked shinier. AMAZING!

An eye cream actually worth more than I paid for it.
I have super sensitive skin, and severe dark circles. I have tried dozens of eye creams from drugstore to department store, and this is the only thing that has ever worked. In one application I noticed a reduction of my dark circles, after a week there is a significant reduction and my crows feet are starting to smooth out.

Dreamy smell, and a great leave in!
This smells like a cross between chai tea and pumpkin pie! To boot, it is a fantastic leave in conditioner. It makes my over-processed hair silky but weigh it down, which is pretty impressive because my hair is really fine.

I have eczema on my hands, so all soaps bother them. I tried this out in the store, and bought it immediatly! After washing my hands they stay soft for hours!

I long beleived that makeup removers are all the same. I have tried quite a few from drugstores to department store, and never found any one better than the other. This blows all of them away! Extremely gently, not greasy, and gets rid of everything! I can pull of a black-smokey eye with one cotton pad in about 15 seconds. Totally worth the money!

A winter necessity
I have perpetually dry hands because I have minor eczema on them. This is the only thing that really soothes and hydrates that I don't have to reapply every half hour.

Porcelain is actually porcelain!
First of all, it is a great foundation. A little goes a long way, and it gives fantastic coverage. It goes on beautifully and LASTS! The big reason I love this, is because they actually make a color pale enough for me. Most companies' "Poreclain" tones are about 3-5 shades darker than my skin tone. Definately a keeper!

Not as good as the Mach 3
I have been using the Mach3 forever, but I found some Venus razors on mega-sale. I figured, how different could it be? VERY. The Venus doesn't shave as well as the Mach 3 and goes dull quickly. It isn't a bad razor. I just isn't the Mach 3.
