    Origins Modern Friction

    more than a cute name...

    This zaps pores, kills zits, and smoothes my skin unbelieveably...yet is incredibly gentle and never leaves me with the raw, stinging sensation that accompanies most home exfoliants. I use this once a week to keep my face, chest, and shoulders toned and radiant, and I always step out of the shower feeling like I've just had a comprehensive appointment with the best dermatologist in the universe!

  • Clinique Non-Aerosol Hairspray
    10.0

    Clinique Non-Aerosol Hairspray

    This unassuming little bottle is my secret weapon!

    Ordinarily I would balk at shelling out $18 for a smallish bottle of hairspray, but this magic potion is worth every penny! For starters, it's unscented, so it never interferes with my heavenly fragranced conditioner. It's gentle, never drying, and somehow, magically, all it takes is just a few spritzes to set my hair all day (meaning that little bottle lasts forever), yet leaves my hair soft and touchable, with no buildup or flakes. Miraculous! Here's the best part...if you need to touch up mid day, simply brush through, restyle with damp fingers, and let air dry...it completely reactivates with water and leaves my hair shiny and frizz free! Yay science! Since I started using this, I haven't needed any other products.

  • Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream
    10.0

    Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

    Simply incredible

    Again, this is a product that, as a caregiver for the elderly, I use on ALL my patients, even though its much too rich for my own skin. For aging, dry skin, nothing beats this intensive moisturizer. It hydrates, smoothes, soothes, and leaves skin soft, non greasy, and visibly firmer, with less wrinkles. Flaky patches, dry eyes, rough elbows, cracked hands, you name it, this will make it go away. Plus, its gentle, hypoallergenic, and fragrance free, so it works on all ages, skin types, and sexes. Can't live without it!

  • Dove Pro-Age Cream Oil Body Lotion
    8.0

    Dove Pro-Age Cream Oil Body Lotion

    Gorgeous, but stinky

    I use this incredible moisturizer religiously on my 92 y/o patient, and the difference in her skin is just remarkable. In six months it went from flaky, crepey, scaley, and cracked, to smooth, glowing, silky, and visibly firmer. I joke that she now has the skin of a hot 60 year old! The only drawback is the overpowering floral fragrance, which is so strong that many people, including myself and my mother, who is sensitive to perfume, cannot stand to use this product daily. Honestly, if it wasn't for that I would gladly reccomend this to everyone I know, but, c'mon....if you don't want to look or feel like an old lady, why would you want to smell like one?

  • Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick
    10.0

    Tom's of Maine Natural Long-Lasting Deodorant Stick

    Fresh, pretty, and cancer-free!

    A girl's gotta stay fresh, ya know? But so many deodorants, even the ones that claim to be "natural", do the job with nasty chemicals...petrolatum, aluminum, parabens, and a whole host of carcinogens and skin irritants...not to mention cloying synthetic fragrances that can really interfere with your lotion or perfume. This deodorant offers long lasting, effective odor protection in a gentle skin friendly formulation, with delicate, all natural scents that keep you smelling fresh, but never fake. As a caregiver, I work long, busy days, but I almost never need to reapply this. Truly, if you want to feel fresh and smell good, this will make you reeeeeeaaaaaally happy! The Apricot is my hands down favorite...kinda sweet and musky, like clean skin, but better...though my boyfriend wears Woodspice, which really gets me weak in the knees! Best of all, its so gentle, I can use it on my elderly patients too.

  • Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer
    6.0

    Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer

    Not as awesome as I hoped...

    I read so many good reviews of this multitasking product that I decided to give it a try, but it doesn't do a thing for me. While it hydrates and doesn't actively irritate my skin, the texture feels greasy, and the level of salicylic acid is too low to effectively fight acne, even after nearly three months of use.

  • Smashbox Sheer Focus Tinted Moisturizer

    This is my go to product. Absolutely nothing has ever made my skin so glowy, gorgeous, and healthy looking. I smoothe a pea sized dollop of this light, oil free luminizer over my face in the morning and my skin is instantaneously transformed...I can't understand how something so sheer can even out my skin tone, erase my pores, and dewify my complexion, yet still look so natural and fresh all day! Plus, spf! Since I have combination skin, I usually apply a thin layer of mattifying moisturizer to my t-zone first to eliminate shininess and flakes. After only a short while using this as my daily moisturizer, I have noticeably calmer, clearer, more radiant skin.

  • Lush Skin's Shangri La
    4.0

    Lush Skin's Shangri La

    I want to love Lush, really I do...

    Their manifesto is brilliant, their hearts(and ingredients)are pure, their packaging is straight up punk rock glam, and their sales people are sooooo nice! But, time after time, I'm brutally disappointed. This, like so many of their products (withthe notable exception of the Flying Fox temple balm: buy it now!), was overbearing, irritating, and overpriced. I always seem to break out with their moisturizers and shave creams, whereas their masks and scrubs leave me dry and prickly...so I give up. No more free samples to pin my hopes on. Sorry, guys. We tried.

  • Lush Shower Gels
    8.0

    Lush Shower Gels

    Flying Fox is so gorgeous!

    I bought this because of the heady jasmine fragrance (and the fresh, graphic packaging...so money!)...despite the price, and the fact that I generally hate shower gels, I simply couldn't resist. Sure enough, it was really not my bag...the runny consistency of this gel is all wrong, and it leaves a slight waxy residue on my skin...but the scent is so intoxicating! So, I bought a pump top at Sally Beauty supply and turned it into a glam, oversised bottle of hand soap. Now, whenever anybody in my house washes their hands, the bathroom (and the hall, and the living room, and...) smells like pure heaven....we all wash our hands a lot more! Plus, the super moisturizing power of this potion is just right for nurturing busy hands.

  • Lush Temple Balms
    8.0

    Lush Temple Balms

    Flying fox makes me feel totally irresistable!

    I don't necessarily mean in an overtly sexy way (although the jasmine, patchouli, and musk blend is delicious!), just in a people can't stop smiling at me way. I work with altzthiemers patients, and I use this product all the time on myself and on them; the scent is pure and subtle, but it lasts all day and is such a mood lifter. I have one patient who literally lets out a big sigh when I massage this into her temples. They claim that it also helps with PMS, and I believe it! Its like a gentle breeze of happiness, and no one is immune! Highly recommend! It is a bit pricey: I ordered it online and expected a much larger tub, but the good news is that it lasts forever, and has soo many uses...I even rub a bit on my split ends to moisturize, tame frizz, and surround me in a cloud of yumminess all day.
