    St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

    Alright scrub if price is your main factor

    I can think of a couple of other scrubs/exfoliators that I would rather use than this one. While it the grains do their job exfoliating rigorously, I never get that truely clean feeling I get from some other products. Still, this product is really good for just exfoliating dead skin cells. Great price, and I also love that st ives products are not tested on animals.

  • Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Parfum
    10.0

    Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Parfum

    Feminine, sexy and modern

    This is an unintended instant classic. I love everything about this perfume, and everyone gives me compliments on it. While I refrain from wearing it during the day, I think I could easily get away with the instant sex-in-a-bottle if I really wanted it. Gorgeous floral scent with patchouli, orange, rose and jasmine undertones. Not for the faint of heart.

  • Palmers Organics Cocoa Butter Massage Lotion for Stretch Marks

    While I'm not sure if it does anything for stretch marks as yet, (I've only been using it for a couple weeks now) this product is possibly the best moisturizer you will find in a drugstore. Palmers seems to make some seriously great moisturizers, and they smell great, too.

  • Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Firming Lotion

    I think this is the most covetable and luxurious moisturizer you can buy in any drugstore. It smells heavenly, and I usually am quite wary of strong perfumes in my moisturizers and soaps. It's not greasy at all and it melts into your skin completely, leaving it smooth and silky.

    Sephora Maniac Mat Long-Wearing Matte Lipstick

    Good product if you can get over the smell

    I'm not sure what the deal with Sephora brand lipsticks are, but while the colour spectrum is awesome, the smell of each lipstick I've tried is unbearable. If you have a tough stomach, try it and I'm sure you'll love the pigment, get staying power as well.

    Bliss Get Out Of Hair

    Overpriced moisturizer

    As far as preventing ingrown hair this product doesn't deliver. In fact, after using this on my legs for about 3 months with no noticeable difference I think it's much better to just keep exfoliating your legs to get rid of ingrown.

  • The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel
    9.0

    The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel

    Much better than your drugstore shower gel.

    While many reviewers are raving about the smell, (yes, it smells great) there is more to it. The shower gel is made of a perfect lathering substance, and surprisingly it is soap-free. I used to usually stick to my bar soap in the shower, since it was the only soap that wouldn't overdry my skin, but except for my hands I feel no compulsion to bathe in lotion after using satsuma shower gel. I've been through many drugstore alternatives, and while this one is definitely on the high side, it is worth it. I dare anyone to find a better shower gel at their local drugstore.

  • Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Serum
    8.0

    Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Serum

    Great protective serum.

    If you're like me and use a hair straightener on a regular basis, you should get this product. I use this every other day after washing my hair (and before straightening). It leaves me with softer hair than another thermal spray would after using my heated tools. While I'm not sure if it completely protects my hair from damage, I'm pleased with the results so far. I would use this product really sparingly on bangs, since it tends to weigh down thin hair. (My hair is thick but my bangs are obviously more sparse than my mane). I would say the only complaint I have is that the really tiny container seems to get used up quicker than I'd like, so it feels like i'm not getting as much value as I could be getting.

  • Jason Vitamin E Creme 25,000 I.U. cream

    This is probably too heavy to use on my face, wherever I do in fact apply this, it rubs into the skin with total ease. It's an amazing cream and leaves the skin feeling extremely soft for a long time thereafter. The container lasts a long time as well. I love that this product is way less expensive than drugstore brands and still isn't tested on animals. Definite winner in my books.

  • Clinique Almost Makeup SPF 15

    Clinique Almost Makeup SPF 15

    Great for those not into that much make up.

    I don't really like the feel of normal/heavy foundation and It also makes me break out the next day. So when I tried this product, I loved the coverage. It worked as a concealer and it also minimized the look of my pores while balancing my skin tone. My mom also tried this product and she adored it.
