A scrub with Vitamin C
This is an Ok scurb with Vitamin C and ginseng ingredients, that helps brighten the skin when the scrubs works it's way to exfoliates dead skin cell. I kind like the small scurbing grunel, because I found it's a bit gentle than the apricot, nut shell scrub type which can be harsh on the skin - Ohh well... all I can say this product has a smart combination of ingredients for an affortable deal. It's smells zesty, cleans well, affortable... BUT it's just a scrub. To be honest I think it's a good basic scrub, but I'm not too crazy about. Vitamin C?... so far I haven't really seen any brighten effect on my skin!?

Bonne Bell delight!
I always go back to this gloss once in a while, especially when I'm sick and tired buying the wrong color of glosses by spending more than $10 a pop! What can I say, Bonne Bell Lip Lites do have some nice colors that are prettier than department stores brands - the right chic pale, pink and neutrual colors. It's cheap and smells yummy. The texture of the gloss a bit thick, stays put, and somewhat moisturizing! What you see is what you get - let's say if you pick a sparkling pink like cream pop!! no matter what skin tone you are it's going to sparkle pink (and yes it sparkles bright!), that's why I stay with Mocha Mousse which is a subtle brown pinkish color that is suitable for anybody and any occasion - Not to mention it smells like some serious MOCHA. The only thing that bothers me is ...it taste SWEET!!? I really don't think a gloss is meant to be eaten!?

A good basic oil-free moisturizer
I have to give a thumbs up for this oil free moisturizer. It's nice and light! I always been iffy about over the counter products, and I never have much luck with them either (allergic reaction, breakouts, clog pores you name it!). One day my doctor suggested me to use a Neutrogena moisturizer (as she said dermatologist recommended), and being on the safe side with my oily, combination, sensitive skin... I picked out this oil free moisturizer - and been using if for the past 6 weeks I have to say this is not a bad product!! No allergic reaction, No breakout? totally out of my amazement!! and best of all it comes in a 4 oz bottle and cost less than $10!! (price may vary with other drug stores) I have to say "Woah"! compare to what I used before a nice 2 oz moisturizer cost me like at least $34. It's a good basic moisturizer. (especially for the summer!) However, this product is a bit more on the light side might be a little too light during the winter season.

Aussie Opposites Attract Shampoo - Surprisingly nice
I am impressed with this shampoo, being a curly girl myself I have to be very careful with harsh shampoo that will ended up either dry up or tangle my hair. However, this shampoo make my hair soft!! I don't know about protect? but it did made my hair soft!! It smells great and the price is affortable $3.29 a bottle! Except the price is right and the scent is great... I like it because it doesn't have the waxy feel that can actually wear your hair down, or which could also create build up on your scalp; so if your looking forward to experiment or finding something new give this a try.

My eye brightner
This is the only brightner, concealer whatever you call it I used - it's covers my dark eye circles and that's a keeper for me. The texture is not too dry like other concealer pens so it's soft for the sensitive eye area, and the color is not to bright or dark or chalky... the pink is some what a neutual color so I believe it's pretty much good on any types of skin tone. I have to say it's a bit pricey, but think of it as a multi-use pencil for eyebrows (for highight), undereyes, and maybe as an temporary eyeshadow.

For dry sensitive, not for me... combination oily skin type
I have combination skin maybe towards the oily side, and after using my face felt clean but this combination/dry liquid soap leaves a bit of a "film" I may say? it's not oily or sticky - it's just leave a film of light oil? it cleans very well but it didn't work for me afterall, I later on breakout in hard to squeeze whiteheads. It pretty much clogged me. It might be a plus for dry sensitive, but not for oily skin. Price wise I think it's acceptable for $14.50 comes in a huge bottle, and probably could last you a few months.

It's ok but worth a try
My experience with Olay Complete is Ok, and I think it's an Ok daytime moisturizer. Here are a few good points it's very lightweight which is great for oily skin, plus it contain SPF 15 which is a must for our everyday routine! ( you save a few bucks on sunscreen); and absorbs well fast so you can wear foundation or makeup right after. Ohh...not to mention it's affortable - with the ingredients of Vitamin E and C it's that bad of a deal. However, it's a bit oily than hydrating. It's can be oily afterward maybe due to the fact it contains SPF15 or Vitamin E? So I wouldn't say it's completely oil free...

A soap bar for all skin type
I needed a gentle soap to collaborate with the retin-A my derm doc prescribed me, and out of frustration I looked up a few rave product reviews on aveeno bar; and I have to say I am satisfied with this cleanse yet gentle soap bar. The box mentioned moisturing bar and for dry skin, but it sat pretty well with my combination oily skin type. I didn't expect much from a soap - which comes to my impression of soap scum, fragrance and drying. Out of my surprised the soap is very very gentle without stripping too much oil off my face (maybe that's what the title meant by moisturizing), and yet it's not thick, sticky or oily like other moisturizing soap bar after one wash. It's fragrant free and lathers well... Well, I have to say it does smells like "Oat". After a week of using this soap every night my skin feels calmer and smoother - and not to mention I seem to breakout less.

Not too impressed
It's a great deal and substitute for your out of stock name brand lipstick, but ever since they changed their packages... I guess their ingredient, texture, colors changes too. Prestige lipstick used to be my must have lipstick - great color fragrant free and most importantly allergic free to me, but every since they changed their packaging they add a bit of fragrant towards it; and there's not too much of a selection either. I pretty much stopped buying there lipstick, but I have to say some of their lipglosses are pretty good.

It's fun to play around with, but the texture is rough not smooth at all, and not only that... it kind of chips off. The color looks nice in a bottle, but reflects different on nails especially after a couple application.
