This pressed powder BLUSH brushes on easily and is virtually streak-proof. Formulated for longer wear, this blush is essential for a picture-perfect glow all day long.
I use this volume shampoo and conditioner off and on. They are some of the best on the market for the price. I also usually let my hair dry on its own if I have the time and these products leave them feeling very clean, healthy, smooth, and with more body than when I started. How can I go wrong? I have had results that are not even close to these with much more expensive products. The main thing is that these work very well and the cost is so very reasonable for such results.
This is a thick rich hand cream that really coats my hands. It absorbs pretty quickly but does leave behind a feeling of weight, like they are coated. My hands aren't greasy or slippery. This is great for weathered, hard working or super dry hands. I find that the scent reminds me of a baby, it's got that babies bum cream kind of scent. It's light and lofting once it's on. I can wash and it's still there too.. This is great for putting on before bed & if you wear the night gloves you wake up with a super soft hydrated hand.. For me it's like they are someone elses.. This is a great remedy for people like me who don't wear gloves in winter. My paws get red, dry and raw! This is the kind of cream I will use on occasion, when needed. My hands feel transformed after only a few days of use..
I can't say enough good things about this hand cream! I've been using it for years. I haven't found another hand cream as rich as L'Occitane's; it's like wearing protective gloves overnight. I'm an obsessive hand washer but no matter how dry my hands get, one night of this cream does the trick. It has a pleasant, not at all overpowering scent. I don't generally use it during the day because I find it too rich for that purpose. Overall this is one of my beauty must-haves. The price may seem steep ($25) but I've been using the same tube for over a year. Highly recommended.
This cream is miraculous, especially as an overnight cream as suggested by both City Slicker and Hillary. I am one of those people who rarely uses gloves in the winter (stupid-yes) and never wears them when working in the garden (another stupid). I think I just have a difficult time maneuvering with anything on my hands so I never wear gloves. This cream repairs all the damage I do to my hands. It does have that 'clean baby' scent which is not overpowering at all. I prefer this cream in the colder months, but then I pull it out often when working in the yard. I have mentioned before I have a dog. He is a licker and I need to wash my hands countless times a day. Of course, they get dry from all of that. Now the little darling is coming in with ticks. I manage to get them off of him but I don't just use soap and water them -- I actually use rubbing alcohol to make sure all germs are killed. That does a job on the skin. The cream reverses the damage completely. The cost is up there -- but you don't need a lot. . . it will last. Unless you are as bad as me -- washing your hands 20 or more times a day due to a very adorable dog. I feel that I do get my money's worth from this cream.
I happened upon this blush because I fell in love with one of the colors. I find it to be comprable to many of the higher end cosmetic lines. It goes on as smoothly and looks very natural. Because it is mineral it does not irritate my skin and it doesn't clog the pores. I am definitely a return buyer. You cannot go wrong -- you get an excellent product for the price.
I got this candle as a gift, and I really like it. Fresh linen is not necessarily the first scent idea that I gravitate towards in a store, but after the way that it makes my house smell, I just might. It is like there is a dryer going in my living room! It has the three wicks so it really is quite strong. It fills a good-sized room up in just minutes. I also really like the way the packaging looks, very country cottage. It says it has a 40-65 hour burn time, which I totally believe.
I have one of the candle also, in Pineapple Mango.. Let me tell you this is a tropical dream, sweet, fruity and warm.. The scent is enveloping in the home, it throws throughout once it's been burning for a while.. I find that the 3 wicks burn fairly evenly, it seems that one is always a little less burnt so I cut it low so I get an even burn the next time. I also use the lid to smout it out so I get no blown wicks. If you like Pina Coladas then you will love this, it's a juicy mouth watering pineapple blend that leaves me salivating when I think of it.. Perfect for guests, I have it in the kitchen, it works wonders for masking the scents of dinner too.
I use the Fresh Linen as it helps disguise the pet smell that comes along with a pet. I use Febreze almost daily but this just fills the room with a fresh scent. Even if the room needs cleaning it smells clean!!! I am for anything that enables me to put off cleaning. I thoroughly enjoy this candle and have a small supply handy. It burns for a long time and I put it out when I go out and burn it again another day. It lasts a good amount of time. I have bought some other candles with this scent that did not smell as good or last as long. Some of them actually cost more and that makes them even more disappointing. I guess they thought me a lesson - if something is really good -- stick with it!!
You must have noticed by now that your hair comes out much better when it's blown out at the salon then when you do it at home, right? I've learned the secret. Half the battle is in the hair dryer! I had never been able to even vaguely replicate what was done at the salon until I got this hair dryer. I can't beleive the difference it makes! This dryer utilizes ceramic, ionic and far infrared technology to dry your hair in half the time with great results. I had always thought it was my lack of God given hair talent that had kept me from the "fresh-from-the-salon" look, but now I acheive it all the time. This dryer is hotter than my old Revlon dryer so I have to move it around a lot while I'm drying my hair, but my drying time has been cut in half. That's especially good news for someone like me who hates drying their hair. The Chi weighs practically nothing which is surprising given the power of the blowing action. Apparently, this hair dryer is also better for your health as well. How? With a low output of Electro Magnetic Frequency. It seems that regular dryers have a high EMF output, exposure to which some experts feel causes various ailments. This makes the low EMF output essential for people in the hair industry. Now that I've got this dryer, I'm spoiled for life. Never again will I be able to buy a hair dryer at the drugstore. It's professional tools for me from here on in!
I am a girl who over-processes her doo on the daily. I wash, condition, and then it begins, and I dry, iron and go. I know this is bad for the doo, but I can’t help but desire a smooth, sleek, shiny doo...it doesn’t come from nature for me! I have to dry the doo with tools that I am sure promote split ends, then ironing. I swear I could run my shirt sleeve through and it would come out pressed, so I can’t imagine what my poor hair goes through. I do my best to take care of if though, and luckily I had the opportunity to give this a test drive. I am in love after a week of usage.
This spray has a nice large nozzle that delivers ample spritzes. I use only about 4-5 - I don’t need more. It’s got a light floral scent that is pretty and once I am done drying, can’t be smelled unless I bring it to my nose, and even then it's light. It’s actually a nice light perfume for the doo. It doesn’t cause any reactions with my skin either - if my skin isn’t liking a product, I tend to break out around my hairline and that isn't the case, so this is a seal of approval for me. I love how this is coined “the foundation for your hair.” I am so in love with this! Since I use foundation on my face, why shouldn’t I provide my hair a daily foundation to protect and renew the doo?? Well, I am leaving this in my regimen. It’s amazing. When I am done drying, I can see that my hair is lying flatter, not because it’s weighed down in the least, it’s light, airy and shiny. This is great to use alone and go, but for me that only happens when the doo goes into a ponytail. So on the daily, I dry then iron. Amazing, my ends look held together and I might be able to go longer in between cuts. I am a 6 week regular girl but going 7 would be great. I also have color treated hair. I use Technician Color line also... The scents are harmonious together also... I think I will be revisiting this product in the warmer months when I am outside more often and can report on the effects with the sun... I am sure if this can stand up to my iron then the sun won’t be a problem! GREAT, GREAT, GREAT!!
I totally agree with City Slicker, this stuff is wonderful. I must confess I do not always bother blow-drying my long (chemically processed) blond hair. So I used it both ways; after styling with heat, and leaving brushed to air dry on its own. I noticed a wonderful difference both ways. I loved the smell, I loved the look, and I loved the lack of buildup. Honestly, I just loved this product. The ends of my hair sort of just stayed in unified harmony for the entire day, and this is not a normal happening. I think that the most dramatic result would have to have been when I used the blow dryer, but when I didn’t I still noticed it looking healthier and shinier. Very good stuff, I recommend it highly.

Here's a third "hear, hear" for the protectant spray! The smell was beautifully light and wasn't battling any of the other scents normally on my bod. I didn't initially notice any extreme results myself, since my hair tends to be fairly tame on its own, but I got an unsolicited compliment from a friend after the first use of this stuff: "your hair looks so shiny and healthy!" Since my hair hasn't been cut in, oh, eight weeks, I was astonished that it would garner that kind of attention! That compliment alone was enough to sell me on it. Like Deedlejuse, I'm a little lax in the daily blow-drying department, but I've been using it even when I've gone au naturale and the shine, for me, is the real benefit. Two pigtails up!
Once again I have fallen back on one of my old stand-bys. I cannot go wrong with any Nexxus product--they just work wonders for me. To be honest I got an excellent deal on Ebay for a package which happened to include my favorites at an incredible discount price!!! My hair is now thanking me for returning to Nexxus. It cleans and hydrates while it also imbues my hair with volume and manageablilty. It is a real treat for my hair and I will go back to it often. My hair feels so soft, silky, manageable and full of body. You will find it to be quite expensive at salons and many beauty supply shops. . . but check Target and Ebay.
Marc Jacobs Violet Perfume by Marc Jacobs, It has top notes of sparkling bergamot and peony; a heart of delicate violet, orchid, orris and creamy cashmere accord, and its drydown is of cedarwood, vanilla, musk and gingerbread.This fragrance is very interesting. It doesn't smell like anything I have ever smelled before, even though all of the parts of it are familiar. I find the combination to be so warming and endearing, it is definitely a feel good perfume. It is interesting and alluring. Violet is a throw-back to my grandmother's house, so for me it is one fragrance that I dearly love. This fragrance makes me want to wear it, all the time. Well maybe just in the wintertime, but definitely a lot in the winter! I don't think that it is a particularly spicy fragrance, more of a warm one to me, but it would be spicy for light floral wearers. The fragrance lasts for a good long time, but just delicately, not over the top strong.

It's a deeply-penetrating and fast absorbing cream for those two very hard-working parts of your body, your hands. If there were any doubt that extra-dry hands could be extra beautiful, this proves it. Hands down.So, I just got a sample of this Cream Oil by Dove in the mail the other day, and I think it is awesome!! I love the smell. In fact I would probably say it is the nicest smelling Dove product I have ever had. Often the smell of Dove creams is just over-the-top rich for me. They really smell creamy and thick, and this one doesn't. It just smells light and sort of sweet. Then the texture is also very light and soaks in super quickly. I really enjoyed this product, and I would probably get it again. It leaves your skin so soft and moisturized and silky feeling. For under $6, how can you go wrong!
I usually don’t wear heavier foundations but with the warm weather coming I started to notice my skin was looking a little oily from the sunscreen I switched to so I decided to give this a go... There are a good number of choices to pick from so there is a shade for everyone. I am happy with my choice. This is a thick foundation that is easy to apply. I use a foundation brush for an even coverage. I think this requires more blending to spread out and into the skin. I want a natural finish... I wanted the matte finish to counteract the oiliness from the sunscreen and it’s doing a great job. The finish isn’t china doll matte but matte enough to not show shine... I think it’s more of a natural finish. My skin feels like it breathes and isn’t masked under makeup like some heavier foundations can. I think this is an all day foundation; I never have to touch up... It’s apply & go and it’s there when I get home!
I have the shampoo & conditioner from this kit and I love them. I was happily surprised with the results and quality of the items. In all honesty, I had never heard of this line. I would totally compare to Pureology. The shampoo is a thick rich pearly shampoo that has an herbal scent; it does a great job of cleaning the doo without drying it out. I found that my hair styled easily after use and the scent doesn’t carry heavily in my hair so I could add product without scents colliding.
The conditioner is my favorite; it too is thick and rich but with a cool minty scent. When applied it made my scalp all tingly and cold. It was very refreshing when I rinsed with warm water. It’s not heavy and didn’t make my hair limp at all. When styling I had volume and manageability... I know this sounds like a commercial but this is a great treasure with very pleasing results!
