L'Oreal Paris HiP Shocking Shadow Pigments
These are a really nice loose eyeshadow, and many of the colors are dupes for some of the MAC pigments. The little brush that comes with it is pretty darn good too. The only bad thing I have to say about them is they have an incredible amount of fall out if you aren't careful, and if you don't buy them on sale, ounce for ounce they are more expensive than MAC. I have used coupons and waited until my Rite Aid had a BOGO sale, so I was able to save a few bucks, but these are a great product if you like loose pigment shadows. You can use them wet or dry, and even when I am too lazy to use primer, they last really well for me.

Review: John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Smoothing and Straightening
Totalbeauty.com sent me this product to review. I have used it quite a bit, and my results have been pretty good. I have 2 different hair textures, my natural hair which is slightly wavy, and my grey hair which is frizzy and sometimes unmanageable. I used this product as directed and was very pleased with my results. I didn't have fuzzy curly hair sticking up, it really smoothed my hair and kept it that way very well considering I was in the snow, as well as the rain and my hair looked smooth. I will probably use this product again, I like that my hair didn't feel sticky, and the shine it provided was very nice too.

Garnier Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream
I was sent this product to review, and I have to say I really liked it. I have extremely oily skin, I prefer a serum or gel type of moisturiser. I have used this product for almost three weeks and I am quite pleased with the results I received. The product soaked into my skin quite quickly. It feel really cool and soothing and it didn't make my skin feel sticky or affect the length of wear with my cosmetics. The texture is really nice, not too thick or too thin, and I will probably continue to use this product, my results were very positive. I didn't break out nor did I have any sensitivity to the product. I give it 10 stars, it did exactly what it said it would, and it is far less expensive than what I have been using.

The Body Shop Hemp Body Butter
This body butter is a super moisturiser when your skin is chapped and irritated from exposure to the elements. I apply it before and after i am working in the yard or my garden. It seems to replenish all the things that the elements remove from my skin, like moisture. I find it works especially well on elbows, knees, feet, and my hands. I like the earthy natural smll of it, and it really seems to absorb into my skin quickly and never leaves me feeling greasy or sticky. The scent doesn't clash with the fragrances I use and a little goes a long way. You don't have to use a lot of product to treat your skin. I also find it has a cumulative effect, the more I use it, the better my skin looks and feels. It is a marvelous product.

The Body Shop Passion Fruit Body Butter
I love the entire Passion Fruit line by The Body Shop, and the sweet fragrance is only one of the reasons I love it so much. The body butter is wonderful for dry weather beaten skin, and when used in conjunction with the other Passion Fruit products, not only are you well moisturised, but it leaves a subtle sweet fragrance that is so feminie and pretty. this body butter just melts into my skin, it is never sticky, or greasy feeling. It leaves my skin very moisturised, soft, and smooth, and that is the most important factor for me. I love to later the products all together for the most benefit, and when I wear them, I don't have to wear fragrance, the scent is just lovely as well as the condition of my skin after I use it. I often recommend this line to my friends and they usually end up loving it. You don't have to use a lot of product to get good results, so it is a bargain comapared to many other product that claim to benefit the skin like this line. don't believe the hype, this is a great line for anyone who believes they need a little pampering.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter
I adore most of the body butters that The Body Shop has created, and I love to use this one in the summer, it has such a nice summery fragrance, and after working out in the yard in the summer, my skin deserves a little pampering. Thsi body butter moisturises dry skin so nicely. It soaks right into my dry areas, and it never feels sticky or greasy. It makes my skin so soft and smooth. I can't imagine my skin without this butter in the summer, it really pampers my skin.

The Body Shop Shea Body Butter
This body butter really takes advantage of all the benefits of shea butter. I love how my skin feels after I apply it. The winter months really take their toll on my skin, and when I use the shea line from The Body Shop, I find my skin to be very moisturised. This body butter is absorbed very quickly, and it never feels sticky or oily/greasy. The more I use it, the better my skin feels. I think that it is a bargain, I don't have to use a lot of product to get the benefits, and a tub is large and lasts quite well for me. It is really effective on my hands, knees, elbows, and my feet. It promotes the health of my skin and protects it from the elements. The fragrance is very subtle, and I can apply any fragrance and not have to worry about the clash of scents. I recommend it to many of my friends, as well as my family. It is a wonderful product.

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser
I have heard so many good things about this product, so I had to try it out. Unfortunately, it wasn't really effective for me. It didn't really remove my makeup, and I am really oily and even after using it, my skin wasn't really clean. It didn't touch my eye makeup very well, and there are far better products availiable for people like me with oily skin. My mom has really dry skin, so I gave it to her. She doesn't wear makeup, so this is a good product for her. It is reasonable, so all you ladies who have dry skin would probably really like it, but for me personally, I will pass on it.

Victoria's Secret Nourishing Body Wash
This is a very nice body wash for dry skin. There are no sulfites, but it lathers nicely without them. it is loaded with great organic moisturisers and it cleans well without making your skin feel tight, greasy, nor does it leave a film. It smells really great too. It is a really great product for the money.

Paul Mitchell Spray Wax
I use this product when I want a piecy look. I have really fine hair, and this doesn't weigh my hair down, it is flexible, workable, and it doesn't make my hair look greasy or dirty, just shiny and in control. it doesn't build up and shampoos out easily. If you like flexible hold that can be touched up, this would be a great product for you.
