  • Sephora Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm

    Sephora Rosebud Strawberry Lip Balm

    Good occasional lip balm

    I wanted to try non-minty tingly lip balm. When I saw this adorable tin, I could not resist buying it. This lip balm was rich and buttery, like a little less greasy version of petroleum jelly. The strawberry scent smelled good, but a bit artificial. While this may not be a soothing lip balm, It did a wonderful job moisturizing my dry lips!

  • Givenchy Amarige Mariage Eau de Parfum

    My aunt gave this full size bottle to me and PI by Givenchy for Men to my husband. When freshly applied, I could detect oriental and mature spicy scents like Sandalwood and Patchouli. I don't often wear oriental floral fragrance, but I thought this one was lovely. However, when it dried down, it gradually turned to the powdery scent. I wish the top note remained longer.

  • Burt's Bees Lip Balm Tin
    9.0

    Burt's Bees Lip Balm Tin

    Almost perfect!

    I like Burt's Bees Honey Lip Balm stick. But, in my opinion, this Beeswax Lip Balm in tin is richer, longer lasting, and more minty and soothing than their Honey Lip Balm stick. Even though the tin may not be as convenient as the stick one, I love this one much more. Additionally, this is cheaper than the stick one. It works well against dry winter lips, but I also use it in summer too because I like a tingly cool feeling on my lips. I wish the stick honey lip balm was as strong as this tin version, or this tin version was available in stick. I agree with another reviewer about the tin. I also have a trouble opening it sometimes. That's the only reason I don't give the perfect rating of ten.

  • Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Eau de Toilette Black Raspberry Vanilla

    While some scents of the BBW Eau de Toilette have been discontinued and forgotten, this Black Raspberry Vanilla fragrance still going strong on my list. This has been my favorite BBW toilette for at least 4 years. When I am in the mood of a tart, sweet and fruity combination AND when I want something a bit stronger than body mist, this Eau de Toilette satisfies my needs. What extra cool about the BBW Signature Collection is that I can combine a few items of the same scent. For instance, before a night out, I moisturize my skin with Black Raspberry Vanilla body lotion and wear this perfume to enhance the scent even more. I don't have to worry about mixing different scents too much. The lasting power may not be the best, but I can accept it because this is less expensive than some pricy high end perfume bottles with poor lasting power.

  • Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel
    5.0

    Neutrogena Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Spot Gel

    Just okay acne treatment gel for me

    I've been suffering from adult acne for years. Even though Clinique Acne Solution system made some minor difference, none of the acne treatment worked completely. This Neutrogena gel eliminated or reduced the size of some pimples, but I kept getting new blemishes at the same time. What I did not like this one is that this stuff left some parts of my face very dry and flaky. I have oily/combo skin, I'm a Neutrogena fan, but I won't purchase this one again.

  • Lancome Juicy Tubes
    3.0

    Lancome Juicy Tubes

    Not my favorite lip gloss

    This was my very first lip gloss-in-a tube-item. I remember that every GF I know was using or at least talking about this lip gloss. It was very sticky, did not absorb into lips, and instead just sat on top. I forgot which exact shade I got, but it was in pink-mauve color. The color was appealing in the tube, it was basically much clear on the lips. I thought about trying another color, but within a month, other companies started producing similar lip gloss. I thought this Lancome Juicy Tube was the stickiest and gooiest lip product, then later I discovered Victoria's Secret Beauty Rush lip gloss, which was, in my humble opinion, the stickiest and gooiest one I ever used.

  • Lush Bubble Bars
    9.0

    Lush Bubble Bars

    The Comforter Bubble Bar makes bath time fun

    I tried a few different kinds of Lush Bath Bombs and Moisturisers, but frankly I do not like enough any of them to re-purchase. Then, I met The Comforter Bubble Bar. It comes in a great size, I break into 4 pieces so I can get four baths out of the one bar. It produces a good amount of bubbles, and I like the blackcurrant scent. The water turns funky pink! It does not give me any skin benefit except it makes my skin smell good temporarily, and I don't use this one for relaxation, but for fun. I have not tried any other bubble bars, but the Comforter does lift my mood and spirits.

  • Almay Intense i-Color Bring Out Powder Shadow

    I can say only about their Trio for Greens. When I saw this, I was excited because I thought this Almay product could replace my favorite teal/green eye shadow, Clinique Colour Surge Eye Shadow Super Shimmer in "Peacock", which cost about the double compared to Almay's. I love the price and the package of this intense i-color. It feel light weight and soft on my eyelids. But it is not easy to blend them together, and enough though I love each color individually, the blended color does not look pretty, but a bit muddy. Also, unlike the Clinique Colour Surge or Shiseido Hydro-Powder shadow, the color is not pigmented enough.

  • Avon Imari Eau de Cologne Spray

    This fragrance is one of those that do not work with my body chemistry. Too musky, strong and overpowering. My mom considers this scent timeless, but I say outdated. So I guess this fragrance is really a matter of personal preference. It was really cheap, and now I know why.

  • Cortizone 10 Anti-Itch Ointment
    8.0

    Cortizone 10 Anti-Itch Ointment

    Works great, but I found an even better one

    I used to use this ointment to get temporary relief of the itching, skin irritations and insect bites. It really works, but a friend introduced me Aveeno Calamine and Pramoxine Anti-Itch Cream, which is steroid-free and cheaper. I find the Aveeno one more soothing too.
