  • Chanel Precision Hydramax + Active Serum Active Moisture Boost

    This product is great. It is lightweight (I do use a cream moisturizer after it, this is just a boost for that moisturizer) and it smells great. I have dry, sensitive skin that can get dry patches if I don't properly moisturize, but since using this twice daily with the corresponding moisturizer, my skin looks radiant and beautiful! My dry patches are completely gone and I've noticed that my skin looks more evenly toned (used to be red and blotchy). The only draw back (and this gets minus 2 stars) is that it's quite pricey and it doesn't seem to last long. I use one pump for an application (2 pumps per day) and it looks like the bottle may not last the month (that's more than $2 per day!). I will definitely have to think about whether I will buy this again.

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa I'm in the Mood for Scrub Foaming Body Buff

    I use this after shaving and it makes my legs so smooth and moisturized. Overall, extremely moisturizing, but I kinda wish it had a higher ratio of "scrubbers" to overall volume. I really like the smell (light and pleasant). It's a bit pricey, although the bottle does last a pretty long time. I will probably be searching for a more exfoliating scrub that's a bit cheaper.

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Targeted Pore & Line Primer

    i started off using the classic smashbox primer "light" version and decided it wasn't quite enough for me. i have large-ish pores on my nose and some laugh lines around my eyes (what can i say, i like to smile!) so i decided to give this a try. this product definitely does more than the light version i was using before and doesn't feel heavier at all. my foundation (i've tried this with powder and liquid) goes on flawlessly and refuses to budge throughout the day. and my pores and fine lines are very nearly invisible. i am very impressed with this and would buy it again even though it's somewhat pricey for the size (you really don't need very much though!).

  • Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

    i was, of course, introduced to this as a "cult favorite" right off the bat and it certainly did not disappoint. back in the day, when i would neglect to wash my makeup off at night (i do now! i swear!) this stuff kept my eyeshadow looking impeccable even after sleeping all night. amazing! i've been using this for years and it has never let me down. keeps shadows in place and makes it easier to apply shadow evenly (your whole lid holds on to shadow during application which allows for even application and blending). a wonderful product and definitely worth the cult following

  • Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Smith's Rosebud Salve

    Okay, but not perfect

    This is nice for a few reasons: it smells good (very light), it gives a good semi-gloss finish on lips, and it's a good emergency hand moisturizer. However, it doesn't quite live up to its reputation in my experience. It is not as moisturizing on my lips as some claim it to be (they get dry/peely just as quickly as when I'm not using this). I will continue to use-up the tin I currently have, but it's a bit pricey for how well it performs and I'm not sure I'll be buying this again.

  • Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System
    10.0

    Olay Pro-X Advanced Cleansing System

    wonderful addition to my cleansing arsenal!

    This is fantastic for my sometimes dry (and flaky/peely) sensitive skin! I use it with my regular cleanser (not the cleanser that comes with the device) and my skin is very glowy. My face feels so smooth and moisturized and does not flake or peel anymore. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who feels like their cleanser alone doesn't quite cut it and wants a deeper clean with very gentle exfoliation. Also, it feels great to have your face massaged!

  • Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer

    This primer is fantastic. It creates a beautiful, smooth canvas for foundation (powder or liquid) and gives real staying power. It goes on smoothly and lasts all day. I have combination skin and it doesn't make my skin oily or dry. It feels silky smooth! I would recommend this for anyone who is tired of foundation sinking into pores or fine lines. It is a godsend!

  • Olay Regenerist UV Defense Regenerating Lotion with SPF

    I used this for a while and then I, stupidly, tried something else and now I have come running back to this. I am trying to remember why I ever left! This is by far the best moisturizer ever. It is a bit expensive for a drugstore brand, but it is a steal for how smooth it makes your skin. It absorbs wonderfully and doesn't cause breakouts or extra oil throughout the day. It has a pleasant smell that isn't overwhelming. I will never leave this product again!

  • Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour

    This lip gloss has a perfect balance of sheer color and sparkle. I hate when lipglosses have big sparkles or are too filled with sparkles. This gloss has just enough glitter to make it look luscious. It's a bit sticky, but I expect that from glosses (it's much less tacky than any other gloss I've used). The color also lasts a while after application. I love the click design and the application brush. It is very easy to use and not messy at all. A very superior lip gloss.

  • MAC Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker

    MAC Pro Longwear Lipstain Marker

    great for non-lipstick folks

    I am not a lipstick girl. I hate when my lipstick comes off on whatever I'm eating or drinking. So, when I found this at my local MAC counter, I figured it was worth a shot. It is truly longwearing, it provides great buildable color (good for those of us that are somewhat apprehensive about brighter colors!) and the marker allows for extremely accurate application. You do need to wear some sort of gloss or chapstick or something after using this, but the color doesn't come off on everything. I love this marker!
