Who DOESN'T love Vaseline brand petroleum jelly? I use this product for soo many things. I don't really need to describe the texture as I'm assuming most of you have touched it but it's soft, non greasy, and gentle. I have severe allergies and have never had any issue with the smell or product. I use this for my son during his changes to create a barrier on his skin to prevent rashes and he never has any issues with breaking out or redness. This is a cheap, excellent lip protectant and if my lips are severely chapped, a little on top and bottle puts moisture back into my lips. Sometimes I take a tiny amount and rub into my hands to trap moisture as well. If I have a large amount of eye makeup on, I take a small amount and put it on a cotton ball and it gently takes off the makeup. Even though times when I've accidentally gotten it into my eyes, there is no burning. On the flip side, whenever I wear heavy black eyeshadow on my lids, I take a small amount of Vaseline and coat it over the shadow for a dramatic, night time look. I learned this tip from beauty magazines and have received so many compliments..It's awesome. Vaseline is about $4 give or take, so you really get a great deal for this gentle multitasker. I've used it since I was little and will always have many uses for it!

Great buy at the Dollar Tree!!
I found elf products at the Dollar Tree and am ecstatic! I only saw a couple things, but I did end up purchasing the "natural" shade of the matte lip color and another color I'll review after I try it. I absolutely love this product and am glad I got it. I paid $1, and upon opening the packaging noticed the lipstick was in a lip liner like packaging that requires you to turn it to make the lipstick come out. I turned it up, and began applying to my lips. It's a creamy, soft lipstick that goes on smooth and has a gorgeous nude/pinkish color to it. It is gorgeous!! I put it on and about 2 hours later and through many kisses to my little baby boy, it's still on! I'm so happy I bought the natural and nearly nude, I foresee me loving that color just as much as this one. I have loved elf since the first time I tried their products and am very satisfied with this lip color. I always love the matte black packaging too, it gives it such a high end look! Try this lip color!

Works wonderfully for $3
e.l.f delivers again! I purchased this finishing mist to see how it set my makeup and am very pleased with this product. It's a little over 2 fl oz and I only use about 3 sprays every time I put on my makeup in the morning so I believe it will last me for a few weeks. The smell is pretty neutral, almost nonexistent when I spray it on my face and dries in about 20 seconds give or take. After I'm done with my makeup, I spray once over my forehead, once over the left side of my face, and once over the right side of my face. I did the "all day test" and checked my makeup at the end of the day, and I could still see my bronzer, highlighter, blush, and perfect eyeshadow! I love this mist and will happily purchase more when I run out :]

THE BEST THE BEST THE BEST!!
I purchased this face wash out of curiosity because it looked sad and lonely on the shelf so I figured why not. I am a loyal fan of Clinique extra mild liquid facial soap because it's so gentle, but J&J is a brand I trust for my baby, and I figured I'd give it a shot. I am NEVER buying any other face wash, again. I am HOOKED!! It was about $4, so I didn't feel guilty and it's the best $4 ever. It's a big bottle, at 6 fl oz which is even better. It received an Editor's Choice Award in 2008 by allure, so I knew this would be a good product to try and on reading the bottle, it says it's "dermatologist recommended, gentle as water, soap-free, hypoallergenic, won't clog pores." There are so many claims on this bottle it's overwhelming, but makes me want to test this wash out even more!! I was so excited to test it out, I came home from Target, and started washing the makeup off my face. I wear a full face of makeup, primer, foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, lip stick, lip liner, eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara. I wet my face with warm water, squirt a dime sized amount of wash on my hands and started rubbing together with my other hand. I wanted to test the first claim that it's soap-free so I purposefully kept my eyes open to see how much they would burn and how much I'd scream, but nothing happened! :] I wear contacts as well which are super reactive to EVERYTHING, but nothing happened! Then, I washed my entire face and dabbed dry with a towel. The biggest shock out of the whole experience is the fact that my eye makeup was totally goneeee! Not just my eyeshadow, but my eyeliner AND mascara; in the history of my life, there has never been a face wash that has removed my eye makeup. That sealed the deal. I didn't break out after my face was dry, it was super soft, and there wasn't a harsh smell that lingered all day. This is my new and permanent face wash...I am so in love a day after I bought the 6 oz I went back to the store and bought the 12 fl oz size to make sure I had a backup. PLEASE try this face wash, it's addicting!!!

Great baby cologne!
We received this as a gift for our baby shower and we LOVE it!! After I give my baby a bath, I squirt a dime sized amount (be careful it comes out like water) and rub it into my hands. I apply it behind his ears, his chubby neck, on his back, his belly, and armpits. It has the best smell ever; that usual amazing Johnson smell. It's not overpowering for my son, I can smell the cologne on him, and when I bring him to daycare his teachers always compliment us on how great he smells :] I have never seen his skin break out from this cologne either. The only thing that kind of stinks is it a liquid and comes out quick when you squirt it, so be careful! Otherwise this product is a 10 and a great baby gift.

As great as my expensive eyelid primers
I have had great success with elf products and am hooked! My friend recommended I try the elf eyelid primer because she heard me saying I buy Lorac eye primer and said I should try to save money. I went to Target and found the whole elf line and found this for $1!!!! Even if it stunk I knew there was no way I could be mad by paying $1. That's the best deal I've ever got on any makeup in my life! The tube is a great size, you get so much product. It is a light nude color so I was a bit nervous to see how it would blend on my lid but using the great lip gloss resembling brush, I applied some on my lids and used the brush to blend. I felt like I wasn't really getting anywhere with the applicator so I ended up using a makeup sponge to really blend all the way up to my eyebrow (I put eye shadow all the way up to my eyebrow.) It was smooth. even, and dried instantly when on my lid. I put my eyeshadow on after and checked it through out the day and my eyeshadow hadn't budged. At the end of the day, around 9ish, I checked one last time before I removed my makeup, and my shadow was still on!! I HIGHLY recommend purchasing this primer, what have you got to lose? It's only a buck!

So fresh and clean!
I loveeee this lotion and have used it for about 3 years now. It truly has a fresh and clean shower smell, and all of the Pink brand lotions from Victoria's Secret are so hydrating. I use many of the Pink brand lotions for all over my body and if they have the matching shower gel, I use that as well. I love when they have their seasonal scents especially during the summer because they pick great fruity scents that remind you of the beach!! The Pink brand lotions are all $15 or 3 for $30. Occasionally they'll have them 2 for $24. Of course I purchased the 3 for $30 deal and got two other scents.

Love Pond's products!
I have used Pond's cream for years and I figured I'd buy this because it was in a pretty light pink tube and pink is my favorite color. I always wanted to try something new as far as cleanser and since this tube said "luminous," I figured it was hinting it would make my face glow. The actual cleanser is beautiful! It has a pearly look to it, is creamy on my fingers, and smells wonderful! I was worried it would dry my skin out but after I washed my face and rinsed, I patted my skin dry and felt my skin and it was so soft! I used a dime sized amount and it cleaned my entire face and left it so soft! I have tried the entire Pond's pink new luminous line, including their new BB cream and I love it!!! At about $4.69 a pop, it's worth it. I have some in my bathroom right now, and when I run out, I'll be purchasing it again!!

Great wax at $9 a pop
NYX products are amongst my favorite makeup products and this wax is on my top! I was using the Sephora brand eyebrow kit that comes with a mini tweezer, mini eyebrow brush, and mini eyebrow slanted brush, two eyebrow powders, and wax. I LOVED the wax, but am not going to fish out almost $20 every time I run out of the kit. I began searching for less expensive eyebrow waxes that could actually tame my dark, coarse, crazy brows and figured I'd look to my amazing NYX line for a solution. I purchased this wonderful baby pink eyebrow wax and tested it out and am VERY satisfied. The wax is not greasy, goes on smoothly, and tames my brows into a perfect arch with no stray hairs sticking out. I apply it first then apply the powders and it stays all through my day. At the end of the day when I wash off my makeup it comes off easily. I am curious to see how I am supposed to sharpen this jumbo pencil but will find out soon.....Definitely recommend you go out and try this wax if you're looking for a cheap alternative to your usual stuff! :]

I was SO disappointed with this mascara as I have used Rimmel products in the past and they are awesome! Even thinking about this mascara makes me cringe! I LOVE the neon orange tube it comes in, and the mascara wand seemed pretty traditional, so I figured I was in for another great mascara, except that the brush felt so dry on my lashes, and it felt like I was brushing through with an empty brush. I did not see any noticeable difference in the blackness of my lashes after applying it (I have very dark lashes but black mascaras still show up) and there was no separation or volume added. It kind of hurt to apply the wand to my lashes, which was uncomfortable and just spoiled the entire experience. I have never used a brush as dry as this one, even with me numerously dipping the brush into the tube and swirling it around to get some product on the brush. I gave it to my friend and apparently she says it works for her...Cool! Still a waste of my money and crushed excitement!!!
