  • Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 45

    I bought the 70 spf for a trip to Jamaica back in January. It's truly amazing how quickly one can tan/burn in the Jamaican sun within 30 minutes (been there, done that), so I knew to go prepared this time. I wanted a little bit of sun on my legs and arms, but my face and chest roast quickly, so I applied this before going out to the pool and beach (I can always use a bronzer on my face and chest to match their "tan" up with the rest of me). I was outside all day and reapplied it one more time halfway through the time I was outside. End of the day: I had no sun on my face or chest. I'm hooked on this stuff now. The scent is light and not really noticeable, in my opinion, and the lotion doesn't feel heavy or goopy on my face. Love it!

  • L'Oreal Paris Wrinkle De-Crease Eye Cream

    I don't recall how much I paid for this - at least 10 dollar I suppose. I'm always on the lookout for that "miracle" eye cream that will erase or at least diminish the crepiness (crinkly skin) directly underneath my eyes. This didn't do that. Oh, it works fine as a moisturizer which is why I'm not giving it an absolutely terrible rating. However, I've never noticed much in the way of line-decreasing under my eyes. I basically consider this a decent moisturizer, and that's all.

  • Benefit jiffy tan

    Benefit jiffy tan

    Nice bronzer with a bit of shimmer

    This is what I use on my legs when I haven't touched up my sunless tanner, my legs are gotten a little pale, and I'm in a hurry and need some color quickly. There's no smell (this is a good thing!), and the temporary "tan" it provides is a nice brown color with just a hint of shimmer. Another plus is that it can be washed off easily if you mess up the application since it's just a bronzer. The only downside is that's a bit pricy, which is why I gave this 9 stars instead of 10. I got mine a couple of years ago and I don't remember how much I paid for it, but I remember it wasn't the cheapest bronzer in the world.

    Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Original Formula

    Very good for my hair in the winter

    My hair isn't actually very frizzy, but during the winter when the air is so dry and my hair is all fly-away and staticky, a little bit of this rubbed onto my palms and into my hair keeps it right in place. Love it!

  • Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Mousse

    Herbal Essences Body Envy Volumizing Mousse

    Didn't do well for my hair type

    I have fine-textured hair, and I fould that this mousse made my hair feel crinkly and stiff, and it would tend to build up in my hair after several uses, no matter how well I shampooed. Maybe I used too much product for my hair type, I don't know. I've just never had the good luck with it that so many people here have. It does smell really nice though.

  • Avon Timeless Fragrance Roll-On Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

    I honestly can't recall its qualities as an antiperspirant because its perfumed scent was so very horrific, in my opinion. Seriously. The scent made me think of a 20-year-expired bottle of old Charlie drugstore perfume.

    Avon Night Magic Roll-On Anti-Perspirant Deodorant

    Kind of a hokey name, but great deodorant at a nice price

    My grandmother gets this for me as an occasional little gift. I'm hot-natured and this keeps my underarms amazingly dry (the deod. is wet when applied, so wait a few minutes before putting on a shirt). If I do sweat such as when I'm at the gym, my underarms smell pretty. :) The scent reminds me of a light musk that's not overpowering at all.

  • Sun Laboratories Tan Overnight Self Tanning Lotion

    Sun Laboratories Tan Overnight Self Tanning Lotion

    The very best sunless tanner I've tried!

    I ordered this after using only drugstore brands off and on for years. I used it for the first time last night. The color guide this product has did unnerve me a bit at first - it was such a dark chocolate-brown, and when I started to rub in it the color guide turned into a brownish-gray color. That's not how it looked once fully rubbed in though. The very dark color guide did make it quite easy to see where I was applying the product. This morning I bathed to remove the color guide and I had the most perfect looking faux tan. Seriously, I looked as though I had been to the beach for a week (without the burning and peeling that usually accompany my beachy "real" tans). I'll keep my L'Oreal Gradual Tanner around for little touch-ups, but I love this Sun Laboratories tanner so much more. Another advantage is that this lotion didn't leave me feeling sticky and clammy at all, which I've noticed a lot of drugstore sunless tanning lotions do. Yes, it can be a tad pricy at it's regular price, but I got mine quite inexpensively off of Ebay - a "tester" bottle that was full. Look around on the 'net, and definitely Ebay, for the best price. Again, don't let this tanner's really dark color guide throw you off. It goes on so well and after bathing the next morning I was left with a faux tan that looked so great! I did notice just a tad of the telltale DHA smell about three hours after applying, but that hint of smell was completely gone after I bathed. Can you tell I love this stuff?! :)

    Ralph Lauren Blue Eau De Toilette Spray

    Wonderful! One of my favorites!

    I have been wearing this pretty regularly for the past three years or so and people who know me associate this scent with me. It's not at all heavy or pungent and makes a great daytime scent with just the right amount of sexiness. I find the scent to be reminiscent of the sea and honeysuckles.

  • Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup

    Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Leg Makeup

    Loved it - when it would actually spray

    I always loved this stuff for my legs. The medium or tan glow was always just the right color. Sometimes it could look a little "caky", but that was also remedied by applying regular lotion to my legs afterward. However, starting last summer every can I bought would have a faulty spray mechanism. After 2-3 sprays, the sprayer would seem to be clogged or something and nothing I did would remedy it. The last four bottles I've purchased have done this, the last one being in probably February of this year. I love the way this looks on me, but I'm afraid to buy another can for fear of getting yet another one with a faulty spray mechanism. Has anyone else had this happen? I'd read somewhere that Sally Hansen was aware of the problem. Has anyone here bought a bottle in the last month that stopped spraying after only a couple of sprays?
