    Dove go fresh Body Mist

    Energizing Grapefruit & Lemongrass, a quick refresher

    I used up one Dove Go fresh body mist in Energizing Grapefruit & Lemongrass in this past summer. The scent was light, refreshing and not offensive at all. I used a quick spray of this mist on my arms and the back of my neck. The scent faded away rather quickly, but I felt freshen it up before going to somewhere crowded with people. I am going to buy again next summer if Dove still sells them. If you don't like the strength of a perfume, try this one!

  • Colgate Total Toothpaste
    10.0

    Colgate Total Toothpaste

    Fresh & Clean

    Colgate Total (I usually buy whitening ones) is my favorite toothpaste. I've tried Crest, Aquafresh, Arm & Hammer and so on, but Total leaves my teeth clean and my mouth a minty feeling for a long time after brushing. In fact, much longer than others. Tom's of Maine Wicked Fresh toothpaste was very nice too and I like that it has natural ingredients, but it is quite expensive. To see if I changed my mind, I occasionally buy another brand, but always come back to Total. Yes, I do buy their whitening versions, but I noticed only minor change in my tooth coloration, but still I like this one.

  • Gillette Venus Spa Breeze Razor

    Venus "Spa" Breeze is a bit expensive for disposables, but their blades are good for me to use a couple of times. This is like a smaller version of Schick Plus Intuition minus the bulky handle of Schick Plus. The moisturizing shave gel around the blades allows extra smooth shave. While these built-in shave gel bars wear out quickly, it is not bad for disposable razors. If you don't mind paying a little extra, this razor is convenient and ideal for travel and gym.

  • Tweezerman Folding Lashcomb

    Tweezerman Folding Lashcomb

    Clump-free lashes

    Tweezerman makes very interesting stuff, and this metal eye lash comb is no exception. It effectively separate my lashes and removes mascara clumps, so much better than a cheap plastic one. I try to choose a mascara that it does not clump my eye lashes, but even a good mascara can stick lashes together especially when it gets old. That was why I bought this handy tool. It works really well, but their narrow teeth tend to get clogged easily, so I have to clean the bristles frequently. Other than that, I am very happy with this one.

  • Aveeno Continuous Protection ACTIVE Sunblock Lotion with SPF 50 for Face

    I thought it would be better to buy a sunblock specifically for face. So I got this Aveeno sunblock with SPF 75 (I could not find a page for SPF 75) this past summer. First of all, the cream was too heavy to be use on my face. Secondly, it left white streaks and a sticky residue. Even though it said oil-free, I felt that my face became dirty and oily, and I could not wait to wash it off. For the three days I used, I did not get any sun burn, but I got a few new zits to take care instead. This may work well for dry skin (not sure about sensitive skin), but if you have oily/acne prone skin, you might want to think twice before buying this one. I gave it away and went right back to Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55.

  • MAC Zoom Fast Black Lash Mascara

    I've been using MAC eye shadows, lip products, and nail color for years, but this Zoom Lash mascara is such a disappointment. It is runny and watery, so when applied, it does not dry quickly, weighs my lashes down, and clumps them together. I have to use a tiny comb (not included) to separate them. It also smudges and smears. Only one tiny positive part is that it definitely lengthens, but then I rather buy much superior drugstore brands. It is hard for me to believe that this mascara has a MAC name on it. I will keep buying their fantastic color makeups, but not MAC foundation no MAC mascara.

  • Dove Ultra Rich Velvet Cream Oil Body Wash
    9.0

    Dove Ultra Rich Velvet Cream Oil Body Wash

    Another great Dove body wash

    Just like other Dove body wash, this one lathers very well, and it is indeed rich and creamy, but it does not make me feel like showering in shaving cream. It is very moisturizing, so this is probably not for those who want to have a squeaky clean feeling after shower. I like Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash with NutriumMoisture slightly more than this one because the Sensitive one is lightly scented. Having said that, both Dove body washes with NutriumMoisture are very nice products during the dry winter months.

  • Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail

    Vaseline Healthy Hand & Nail

    Light hand lotion

    I keep a hand cream/lotion in the kitchen, my car, my office, and my purse. Just to hydrate my hands, I use different brands and switch around a lot - Vaseline, Nivea, Eucerin, Lubriderm and so on. I often buy the one is on sale at the time of purchase. I've only tried this Vaseline Hand & Nail in tube because I want it to be portable. I cannot confirm that this stuff hardens or strengthens my nails. I am not too crazy about the scent either, but at least it is not unbearable. It is light on the skin, and leaves no major greasy feeling so I can go back to typing when it is absorbed. This lotion is reasonably priced, and I can find it even at a corner store. However, since it is light on the skin, when I have very rough and dry hands, I use more concentrated and richer hand cream such as Neutrogena Norwegian formula or L'Occitane sea butter.

  • Revlon Nail Clip

    Revlon Nail Clip

    Great and cheap

    You can never have too many nail clippers! ;) I wanted to keep one in my office desk drawer just in case. I found this at a drugstore, and it was very affordable and also they have the smallest available. Sine my hands are small, it works just fine to clip my finger nails. The attached nail file is a handy tool, and sometimes I even use it to clean under my fingernails. So far so good, and I have nothing negative to say about this one.

  • Olay Wet Cleansing Cloths
    4.0

    Olay Wet Cleansing Cloths

    Not very effective

    I've tried cleansing cloths by Dove, Garnier, Ponds, Estee Lauder, Boots and a few different ones by Olay. I used to think that Olay Total Effects Age Defying was my least favorite Olay makeup removing wipes, but among all the others including non-Olay brands', I must say this one is the least effective in removing my makeup. I purchased this in All Skin Types only because it was on sale. It did not dry out my skin, the scent was pleasant, and it did not give any irritation after using it, but it did not take off most of my makeup, not even a regular eyeshadow. It just smeared everything around my eyes.
