  • Nivea Original Moisture Body Lotion

    I first tried this brand before the company changed the bottle. I found it to have a greasy feel to it that I did not find enjoyable. The price at the time was almost $10 for a relatively small bottle that did not last me an entire month. I am not certain if they changed the formula since then, but I would be willing to give it another shot. My skin did feel great and had a lovely glow instead of being dry a coarse-looking. The smell was a bit overpowering, but once it faded a bit I found it very uplifting. That is why I use to like to apply it in the morning rather than before bed. It also caused the sheets to stick to me at night.

  • Chapstick Classics

    I keep a tube of chapstick just about every where. I have one in my purse, on my bed stand, in each bathroom, in my backpack, and I store a few for when I run low. I only buy the strawberry flavor and find it moisturizes my lips for a good while. Granted, if you apply before eating, you will have to reapply after. I think that is a given for just about any lip moisturizer. I was diligent in using chapstick more through the winter and I was able to refrain from getting chapped lips! Typically, I apply this 1-4 times daily. A tube lasts me quite a while, but I also buy in bulk. It's less expensive than some of the more stylish brands, but I feel as though it also works a lot better for what it is worth. It even acts as a great gloss before applying a tint of color to the lips. I highly recommend chapstick as a reputable brand.

  • Nivea A Kiss of Shine Glossy Lip Care

    This looks great when it first goes on your lips, but requires multiple applications to keep that pout glowing. The texture is slightly gritty which almost has a certain drying effect. I find my lips peel a lot after putting this on, but I wonder if that is from smacking my lips together because of the strange feeling? This product is certainly great if you are looking to exfoliate your lips. I personally love the color. The price is a bit steep for the amount of applications needed. While I have noted that some reviewers discuss a tingling sensation, I do not feel that at all with this product. Again, I am more in tune to the gritty feeling which I think accounts for the shimmering effect that you get from this lip "moisturizer". I would have to recommend a simple chapstick if you are looking for a product to moisturize your lips with. This product just doesn't quite make the cut, but I personally leave it in my makeup bag for exfoliation purposes.

  • Jergens Skin Firming Daily Toning Moisturizer

    Tonight I just used this product for the first time. It was on sale at my local Target and I immediately purchased a bottle. I used this all over my body including my face. My body feels moisturized but not greasy. My skin texture feels a bit different already. It feels slightly tight or has a bit of a pull to it. I notice this more on my arms, chest, back, and stomach. Not so much on my legs, face, or neck. The smell was a bit of a shock. I do not find it unpleasant, but it was a bit overwhelming upon the first application. It calms down a bit after it is rubbed in and your senses have a chance to adjust. On a good note, my fiance kept wanting to smell me and found the scent very attractive and even a bit arousing to his senses. Even where I have acne on my arms, my skin feels very smooth. Obviously I still feel the bumps from the acne, but those even feel less harsh. I am going to continue with this product and see what happens. My goal is to apply it twice a day (I'm a first-time mom with a very hectic schedule so even once a day will be a miracle). It went on fairly easy and I had covered my body in under 7 minutes. I will note that I can contort my arms and reach my upper back area. Those who cannot, I suggest requesting assistance and do not strain yourself. I gave this 7 stars because of price when it is not on sale, first-time smell shock, and not having used it long enough to see the effects of continued use. I can also use the laptop finger mouse pad right after application without the lotion causing cursor issues (bonus).

    Tomato Vine Scent

    I recently purchased this product in the Tomato Vine scent. The price is affordable in comparison to other "natural" comparable cleaning products. I got it on sale for $2! This company makes great scents that get you excited about washing your hands and even cleaning your home! I have sensitive skin and have never encountered an issue using this soap product. Our conures don't seem bothered by this soap either and love the scents as well!

  • Plus White 5 Minute Speed Whitening System

    This is a great product to purchase if you are tight on money. The kit costs under $10 at Walmart and the gel was listed at $5.97. I originally purchased this not too long after it first came out on the market. Whitening will vary from person to person depending on a number of factors. You really have to use it every day to get the desired effects that you want and then to regular treatments for touch ups. Frequent consumption of staining foods like coffee and juices will still cause teeth to appear a bit more yellow in color or off-white. Be careful about use as your teeth can become incredibly sensitive. This is not listed on the box at all and I had incredibly sharp pain by the third day of using this product. You can try taking an ibuprofen about half and hour to an hour before you do your treatment to decrease the pain. Another option is to switch to sensitive toothpaste while you are doing your whitening treatment.

  • Sally Hansen Diamond Lip Treatment

    I absolute love this product. I even carry it around with me in my purse. It has replaced the "chapstick" that I use to carry. The shades are great and can fit a lot of skin types. This is because the coat can be quite sheer. It also provides moisture to dry or chapped lips which makes lips look fuller. The shiny sparkles are an added touch and bring focus to the lips. The price isn't bad either! This is great to wear out any time day or night!

  • Yankee Candle Company Macintosh Housewarmer Jar Candle

    I love Yankee Candle and the variety of scents that they offer. They have some of the best around and there is no comparison. My only issue is that I wait to buy them when they are on sale. This is probably a good thing though otherwise I would hoard these things. I also like the fact that they last quite a while. You can get a lot of use out of these candles in comparison to cheaper brands.

  • Dove Sensitive Skin Unscented Beauty Bar

    I agree with some of the other comments about a bit of a sticky feeling using this soap. I have hard water so I am wondering if this could cause some of the strange affects? I do notice a difference if I shower in a place without hard water in comparison. It doesn't seem to be as bad. Dove has always made good products though.
