  • Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

    Estee Lauder Double Wear Light

    Excellent foundation choice for you brides-to-be

    I usually wear a more natural looking foundation. This was a little heavier and more coverage than what I am used to. It evened my blotchy skin tone and covered my imperfections as well as my freckles. This foundation also lasts tenacioiusly until you remove it. It is my first choice when I have to look more formal and polished for all day events or a late evening board meeting after a hectic day (excellent choice for all of you brides-to-be). It is a bit expensive and did not irritate my sensitive skin, but I really liked it.

  • Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream

    Aveeno Intense Relief Hand Cream

    Better than your average hand cream

    This product is not as moisturizing as a few other products I've tried and could contain more beneficial ingredients, but is also not overly greasy or waxy. I really love the fact that it is fragrance free (most hand creams are too perfumy and not in a good way) and soothes irritated sensitive skin at a reasonable price. Definately a better than average hand cream

  • Dove Sensitive Skin Collecion
    8.0

    Dove Sensitive Skin Collecion

    Good for sensitive skin

    These products generally do what they are supposed to do and contain excellent ingredients at a great price. They do not irritate my sensitive skin, however the do contain a neutral fragrance if you read the label. Fragrance is a potential irritant, but it is near the bottom of the ingredient list. I would prefer fragrance free, but do use these products.

  • Paula's Choice Slip Into Silk Body Lotion

    I am so bummed that this has been discontinued. It was a very moisturizing dry oil spray that I used after the shower. It was especially nice on freshly shaved legs. It absorbed quickly, did not stain close, did not irritate my sensitive skin, was loaded with antioxidants and moisturizers, and even sprayed in a fine mist upside down. It was fragranc e-free but had such a light pleasant hint of vanilla used as a beneficial ingredient. I really loved this. My skin will not be the same next winter.

  • MAC Paint Pot
    10.0

    MAC Paint Pot

    Great cream shadow/primer

    I got painterly which was a light flesh tone. It is a great cream eye shadow that lasts all day, does not irritate the eyes, is much less drying and less expensive than Bobbi Brown's (plus you get a lot more product). It is very pigmented and evened out the color on my lids-brow bone area and also acted as a primer or canvas for other colors. It really makes powder shadows POP! Highly recommeded.

  • E.L.F. Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine

    Non-sticky, long lasting, moisturizing, non-irritating, beautifully colored lipglosses with spf 15 and a pleasant grape taste: $1! Gorgeous purse originally $150 on sale: $50! Dinner and drinks with friends: $35! Going to reapply your awesome lip gloss only to find that it has seeped through the treads on the top and oozed all over your gorgeous purse and its contents and spending the evening in the bathroom trying to clean off your keys and other items: WORTHLESS! I had purchased a bunch of these and tried again, but this time put them in baggies to protect my purse. They all oozed throught the treads. What a disappointment. I would have given these a 10 because the gloss itself is awesome, but the packaging sucks. I would pay more for this gloss if they used better quality tubes.

  • Paula's Choice Constant Color Gel Eye Liner

    This is an outstanding gel eyeliner. It goes on smoothly without skipping, is blendable, comes in a variety of gorgeous vibrant, flattering colors, and dries to waterproof even for watery allergic eyes. It does not irritate my sensitive eyes, comes off easily with a good eye makeup remover and is so much cheaper than Bobbi Brown or MAC. Love it!

  • Clean & Clear Persa-Gel 10 Acne Medication

    This has the highest percentage on benzoyl peroxide you can get without a prescription. It is inexpensive and works great after applying an exfoliant. The only thing was that it did leave a white residue on my skin. I had to take care to rub it in well.

  • Clinique Happy
    10.0

    Clinique Happy

    My fave!!!!

    I have severe allergies and do not care for most fragrances. This is my number one fragrance choice. It is a light, fresh, warm citrusy floral that lasts and stays true throughout the day and reminds me of a sunny summer day. It can be worn by any age. It is appropriate anywhere from school to business meetings, to church, to going out--casual or more formal. The price is very reasonable, especially for the quality, especially if you get a gift with your purchase. I also love variations of this--Happy to Be, Happy in Bloom.

  • Prescriptives Calyx Exhilarating Fragrance

    This florally scent is almost too strong when you put it on. It has citrusy tones with a very slight caramel undertone. It is too strong smelling and I am not crazy about how it develops on me, but it smells beautiful on one of my co-workers. The scent fades away by the middle of the day, but it is not too expensive. I would wear this if I got it as a gift but would not go out and buy it myself.
