  • Maybelline New York Baby Lips

    I like the shine and taste that comes from this balm, what I don't like is that it doesn't last very long, doesn't mix well with lipsticks (kind of leaves a white residue) and I don't really love any of the colors. BUT it does take me back to my teenage years and it does make my lips feel moisturized for the time it lasts. There's something fun and effervescent about this balm, something nostalgic that makes me think high school. So the fun factor of this balm is really attractive and I guess it's called baby lips not because your lips necessarily stay soft like a baby, but they remind one of youth...when they were a baby! I'm happy i bought this item and sometimes it's fun to use...but it's not my favorite and I still say, nothing beats carmex when it comes to protection and moisture. If carmex looked so fun, I think it would rival this product. But good try maybelline, I see why people love it.

  • Bliss Lemon and Sage Body Scrub

    Bliss Lemon and Sage Body Scrub

    So Fresh, So Smooth!

    A bit abrasive but the sent is so refreshing and it taught me a very important lesson: dry exfoliation is so much more effective when using scrubs. I do it with any scrub that I use now and it's just amazing. The effects are lasting. But this product is specifically is amazing and very refreshing. It really leaves the skin smooth provides a great spa experience...very calming yet refreshing scent. My only gripe is the price on this item, it's a little heavy and there are other scrubs that are just as good at a fraction of the price, so I'm not sure of the actual value on this item. I AM sure that it's a really great splurge and either way, you won't regret buying.

  • Aromafloria Muscle Soak Sugar Salt Glow Body Scrub

    I bought this body scrub randomly at a drugstore few years ago, used it and it sort of disappeared into my forest of beauty products under the bathroom sink. After putting a post up on total beauty regarding the perfect scrub, I decided to delve into the stuff under my sink and get rid of what I wasn't using. I came across this scrub and couldn't remember if I liked it or not...but it caught my interest because it said salt AND sugar scrub meaning: soft and harsh? So I immediately decided to try this and I am so happy that I did because it's SPAmazing! The salt granules are coarse and really slough of the dead skin cells...which makes it seems really abrasive. I kept scrubbing away along my whole body and loving it. I also noticed that it had a refreshing peppermint smell...not medicinal, but very awakening and fresh. After I was done sloughing away, I rinsed off the scrub and then i saw what the sugar did: it completely smoothed and softened on my skin. It was amazing...it felt amazing even after I used a bar of soap. I jumped out of the shower and my skin really was glowing and gorgeous. I didn't even need to use lotion. A few hours later I can really feel the difference. What a great surprise, glad I didnt throw this out because now I just want more!

  • Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask
    8.0

    Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask

    Nice, Light Mask for Finer Hair

    First off, I can say that I'm a huge morrocanoil fan, so the scent alone makes me rat the product highly. But other than that...this mask really works. I prefer to put it in dry or slightly dampened hair after warming a little bit. I let it soak in for much longer than the recommended 5-7 min and if you can steam yourself or go to the sauna (even work out) with this in your hair, it really does work. I have very long hair which is thick, but the actual strands are somewhat thin...this means masks can weigh my hair down and pull it out. The ends get parched after i blow it out and I never color it...so the condition of my hair isn't terrible, but it's still a little dry. This lightweight mask if perfect for those conditions..it feels good when you put it on (not extra heavy or greasy) and it does leave your hair shinier, more manageable and smelling fantastic. If you have curly or wavy hair, it will bring out that texture in a really beautiful weight. This isn't exactly my FAVORITE Hair Mask (DHC Rich and Deep Conditioner is...)but it's a very good one that will allow you to keep it in for a long time and feel the results. I dont recommend this for anyone with really damaged or coarse hair, in that case there are other morrocan oil treatments because this one is fairly light though very effective.

  • American Beauty Beauty Boost Overnight Radiance Cream

    I can't believe how great this night cream is...it has defined what a night cream does for me. I have used plenty of night creams but never saw any difference. I have young, healthy skin but I wanted to try something and WOW. Within a few days of using this cream each night I saw a major difference. I would go to bed after a long day and then wake up with a ridiculously fresh face...perfectly firmed up and absolutely radiant. I can't believe this cream is such a little known secret. I spread the word to everyone I know and praise this cream to no end. Goodbye high end creams, this Kohl's product is the only night cream for me. I've spread the word about this cream to everyone I know and I have not heard anything bad. Really amazing product and pretty affordable for a night cream. So smooth and refreshing, smells so good. Lovely and decadent.

  • NeXXus Heat Protexx Heat Protection Styling Spray

    Excellent protectant spray...but then again this whole line has always worked well on my hair. After using, my hair looks fuller, shinier and bouncier. It also smells really good. I bought a few times, but as a beauty junkie I'm always switching around so this never made it to my must haves list.

  • The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream

    The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream

    Great for Scars or Healing

    A few years ago I had cyst removed from my cheek and needed plastic surgery. The surgeon's best advise was to put vitamin E on it. I found this face cream and used it religiously. By the time I went back for my check up, he was thoroughly impressed with the results. For years after I recommended this cream to anyone with scarring or dark spots on their face and the results are gorgeous every time. This is a lifesaver. I dont use this product regularly anymore but if I needed to, I would definitely use it. Great item, very effective and smells fantastic. Feels very natural and doesn't irritate. I also think it brightens the skin. Consider this reparitive and easily absorbed.

  • MICHAEL KORS Leg Shine Collection

    What a great idea! Not only does this add shine to your legs, but it adds a bit of a tan color and smells like one of the kors fragrances. This item makes my legs look so gorgeous and noticeable...doesn't look like you wiped oil all over your legs or used any tanner but just makes your skin look very healthy. This item also stays on and shining for a very long time...almost leaves a moisture barrier. This item makes you want to go bare-legged no matter what the season is. I highly recommend the mini stick because it lasts forever and you can stash it in your bag just in case you're at a pool party. GREAT!!

  • Carolina Herrera 212 Sexy Eau De Toilette Spray

    I've always been a fan of the original 212...so much that I had to get the spins off. Its a grown up, less casual and more floral fragrance. I wont say that i like it better because there's a certain really sweet smell that lingers...and sometimes it's a little too sweet for me, but other people notice and love this one a lot more. It's more of a statement of sexual femininity than the original. i like it, others like it more than i do when I wear it.

    Carolina Herrera 212 Eau De Toilette Spray

    Forever A Classic, Weekend Perfume

    This scent is light and casual, but somewhat sexy. Always sexy in that weekend way. This is my go to sporty perfume, but I'm a more "formal" perfume wearing. Smells especially good when you smell it on your clothes after wearing. Lasts a long time and lingers...always have a bottle on hand.
