  • Dr. Bronner's Tea Tree Liquid Soap

    This stuff is awesome. I've been using it since I was a kid. Very gentle, but refreshing, and the label is always entertaining to read while your conditioner works!

  • Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa Shea Cashmere Hand Cream

    I agree with the previous reviewer: don't let the ultra-thick initial impression fool you. This stuff smoothes on and absorbs like nothing else. It makes a noticeable difference in your skin very quickly, too. The scent is lovely...sort of baked-goodsy but sophisticated at the same time. I am a knitter, and therefore very picky about hand creams being NON-GREASY, and this one is fabulous on that count. I bought this on special for $6, but will gladly pay full price for more when I run out. HG stuff here, people!

  • Jaqua Pink Champagne Glimmer Gloss

    OK, I picked this stuff on a whim, as it was in the bargain bin and I thought it looked so darn HAPPY. It's full of micro-glitter that almost makes it look less glittery than just intensely frosted. The color is quite sheer, but there's a good bit of gloss to it. It actually seems to last pretty well, too, based on the one time I've tried it out. The smell/taste is light and nonoffensive, but kind of pretty. I think it would look absolutely gorgeous layered over a darker lipstick for a pretty frosted holiday look. Overall, this is just an adorable, happy girl gloss that I'm glad I grabbed.

  • Wet n Wild Silk Finish Blush Compact

    Wet n Wild Silk Finish Blush Compact

    Amazing Cheap-O Product!

    Ok, teenage memories of Wet N Wild cosmetics being the cheapest and most garishly colored things we could get our hands on are finally going to have to be put aside. I have to admit: this blush is awesome! Seriously, my favorite blush before I caved in to the insane reviews I kept reading and bought this one, was Smashbox. And this stuff compares to that, except that it costs something like 1/8 the price! VERY highly pigmented, but not in the least garish, NOT streaky, in fact very blendable, and stays on like a dream. Ignore the silly little brush that comes with it (but really, when do you ever use those unless it's a palette from MAC or somebody...) and use your own, and you'll be amazed. Whodathunk Wet N Wild would get a place on my HG list???

  • L'Oreal Paris Ideal Skin Genesis Daily Moisturizer SPF 15 Lotion

    I am thrilled with this stuff. I was skeptical about spending this kind of money on a drug store moisturizer, though I should know better: just because it comes from a more expensive store does NOT mean it's better quality. But I have fairly oily skin, and am VERY picky about moisturizer. It must be light, absorb quickly, smell nice or not smell at all, and also, of course, be effective. This stuff really does all of that and more. I'm a tiny bit worried that it might be too light for real winter dryness, but I live in the Southern US, so for ten months of the year humidity and heat are more worrisome foes. This is the product I want to rave to all of my friends about. My ONLY quibble is that it doesn't have any SPF, but I suspect that adding it would compromise the lightness.

  • Rimmel London Lasting Finish Intense Wear Lipstick

    I wear this in Vintage, which is a light, shimmery pink with fairly cool tones. It actually is nearly the exact same shade as my lips, maybe the tiniest bit darker, and so shows up as a very pretty, lightly frosted shimmer, but nothing too juvenile or flamboyant. It doesn't last all day, but does fine for several hours, and is no problem to reapply as it's very light and comfortable. Feels great on, barely notice it. For the price point, I think this is my new fave!

  • Buxom Full-on Lip Polish

    This stuff is just perfect. I use Dolly, which is a nice, natural but noticeable mauvey shade on me. I LOVE the scent, and the tingly sensation is perfect...not too harsh, and lasts forever! I find it slightly sticky at first, but after a few minutes it seems less so and the shine and color both last and last. Shine level is pretty but not over the top.

  • Maybelline New York Define-a-Lash Waterproof Lengthening Mascara

    I have really long, very very black eyelashes anyway, so don't go through much mascara. Mostly I look for lengthening mascaras, because I find over-voluminous lashes to be sort of scary. While this mascara DOES certainly lengthen, and I actually like the brush overall, I'm less than thrilled with the clumpiness. As in, there is some, and it's noticeable, and this stuff seems to dry really quickly so it's hard to remove them, especially with the flexible brush. Also, I've had some flaking. Not a ton, but more than I'd like. It's ok for an everyday mascara, but probably won't buy again.

  • Smashbox Lipstick

    I really adore Smashbox's lipstick formula. Fairly moisturizing, and INCREDIBLY comfortable to wear. I am very picky about how a lipstick actually feels on my lips, and this is a lovely light, smooth wearing lipstick. It lasts a good long while, and the colors are just awesome!

  • Biore Skin Recharging Foaming Cleanser

    I love everything about this cleanser. It REALLY controls the oil, and the effect seems to last. The scent is nice, and there's a lovely cooling sensation as well. Not overwhelming and tingly, just perfect. And my skin feels fantastically clean after, without being overly dried out! Would definitely buy again!
