A Pregnancy Must Have!!!
Yet another great product by Carol's Daughter. I picked up 2 containers of Sexy Belly when I was only 2 months pregnant. Upon the first use, I was impressed with the fact that the product was very hydrating yet quickly absorbed into your skin so that you do not spend the day feeling greasy. The scent is light if not nonexistent- perfect for expecting mothers' sensitive noses. I use it morning and night on all areas that are susceptible to stretch marks and I have yet to get one stretch mark despite the fact I'm six month's pregnant. The really great thing about this is that a small investment goes a long way. I've just started on my 2nd jar and I'm sure that will last me through my last trimester. If you're pregnant, this is a must have.

Crazy for Mango!!!
I am becoming a Carol's Daughter addict. I absolutely love this product!!! The scent is beyond words. It's a sweet smelling without being sickening. The texture of the product is a bit firmer than some body butters that I've used, however, it quickly dissolves into your skin leaving it baby soft. This product is great right after the shower as it leaves your body with a wonderful sheen for summertime fashion without looking greasy. This is also great for the dreaded wear and tear that your feet receive from wearing sandals all summer long. I've kissed my cracking heals and feet goodbye after a couple of uses of this product. The effects last all day and a little bit of the product goes a really long way. The packaging is simple and travels very well. The pink flower in the middle of the body butter is a nice touch as well. This is a great value for the money. I purchased my tin in April and I'm still going strong. Prior to using this product, I was not very insistent on having products with all natural ingredients. I can definitely tell the difference between this product and others in the same price range that are more synthetic. This is a great product that makes you feel like you're spoiling yourself.

Great Product for a Natural Look
I've been using Bare Minerals foundation for 2 years and am overall pleased with the product. I had been using a department store liquid foundation that offered great coverage, but just didn't seem to match my medium toned african-american skin tone. I was attracted to the product because of its claim to improve skin. I cannot say that my skin has greatly improved as a result of the use, but I can say that if I sleep in my makeup, my face is not a total disaster area the way it would be if I did the same in liquid makeup. The foundation does not offer the miraculous coverage as touted in the infomercial, but the coverage is good if you don't have any major skin problems. I have very oil/acne prone skin and I have to do a lot of layering with the foundation and mineral veil in order to get ok coverage. I really like the result when I leave the house in the morning, but I do have to do frequent touch-ups to keep that flawless look. I do love the fact that it is so easy to apply. You can practically do it without a mirror. It is, however, a little messy. If you're of a darker skin tone, you will probably not have much luck with the starter kits. I highly recommend going to a BE Boutique, Sephora or Ulta store so that they can help you select the 2 foundations you will need. If you're a woman of color, the line offers a great selection that blends easily with our natural coloring. Overall, I do like the product, but do return to my liquid foundation when I need a lot of coverage. Great for a natural day time look. People will definitely think you have great skin as opposed to the fact that you're wearing makeup.

Olay total Effects Blemish Control - LUV IT!!!!
I am a recent convert to Olay Total Effects Blemish Control. I have acne prone skin and am 6 months pregnant. Unfortunately, I am not one of those pregnant women that has the "glow". Prior to my Olay conversion, my skin looked dull, broken out, and just unimpressive. After my first use of this product, my skin was noticeably softer and appeared a bit brighter. After using the product for 3 weeks, I am almost blemish free. My skin is MUCH softer, smoother and brighter looking. I haven't had this texture in 15 years. Friends have stated that I'm glowing. Mind you it's been years since I've received a compliment on my skin. As for the product itself, the packaging is perfect for keeping in the shower or just on your sink. The cleanser boasts a great exfoliant. The exfoliant quicky dissolves as you rub it into your face. It is strong enough to make a noticeable difference to the softness of your face, yet mild enough so that your face does not feel like it's been rubbed with broken glass. This cleanser easily dissolves and washes away leaving your face feeling soft and refreshed as opposed to tight and sticky. I found this at Walmart for $6.99 and have seen it as high as $8 at drug stores. This is an exceptional buy for under $10 and I highly recommend that you also purchase the blemish control moisturizer in the Total Effects line as well. In summary, a great product at a great price for those who are concerned with mild/moderate acne and aging. Absolutely LOVE IT!!!!
