Thanks for the great tip - I went onto the site and ordered the sampler pack for $4.95. I got it and it includes a $5.00 coupon towards a future purchase so the samples will end up costing nothing. I actually got a couple of this Derma E Vanilla Bean Cleansing Mousse in my little stack of samples. City Slicker did not exaggerate at all -- this cleanser is incredible. It is one of the most gentle cleansers I have used while it works so well. It leaves your skin so fresh, clean and hydrated. The scent is definitely among the best vanillas I have used. It is a real vanilla rather than a perfume-type scent. It is a very fresh fragrance which actually leaves you with just a tinge of it when you are done and it will dissipate pretty quickly. Using this Cleansing Mousse is almost like your own private little spa treatment for your face. Your face will love you for using it.
It's happened yet again, I've fallen in love with a product I'll have to break my piggy bank to afford. Exceptionnel de Chanel Mascara is what it says- Exceptional. Instead of a bristle brush or rubber bristles this mascara gives you a brush that is made up of six rows of combs. Now I've tried other comb mascaras and didn't like them, but this is somehow different. Be warned- this is not for those of you who are going for the "natural lash" look. This gives you bold, beautifully separated, voluminous lashes. My lashes generally don't curl, but there is a little curling going on with this mascara. The brush allows you to easily get every little lash in the corners. I have it in black (Smoky Noir), but it also comes in brown, dark blue and violet. If you've got the extra cash and you want dramatic yet well defined lashes, then you've got to check this out. Oh, and I've had no contact lens troubles with this mascara. It looks like I'll be eyeing up that piggy bank for my new "must have".
Honestly, I can't believe I haven't written about this foundation sooner! This is my absolute end-all, be-all product for my face. This foundation is the holy grail of foundations. It covers completely without looking like a mask and stays in place all day. It is so good that I often don't have to use concealer on imperfections that I would have to conceal with other foundations. Add on to that the fact that it has an SPF of 25 and you've got the ideal foundation. Keep in mind that this is medium to full coverage, so if you're used to a tinted moisturizer, this will afford more coverage, but it doesn't really add any weight. It's a little pricey, but it only takes 2 pumps to cover my whole face and I've been using the same bottle for months. Rather than meander through tons of drug store foundations, try this one and you'll find it's worth the investment.
Natural oil in 1/4 moisturizing cream. Here's a body wash that moisturizes your skin better than any regular body wash. Dove has embedded skin-loving natural oil in a rich cream - the result is the dreamy-creamy consistency of a cream with the silky-smooth skin feel from an oil. Intensely moisturizing, but sensationally lathering. Indulging to senses, but nourishing to skin. Rich in oil, but not oily. What a beautiful contradiction. Try Ultra Rich, if your skin just can't get enough. 10 oz. $5.99This body wash really is tremendously moisturizing- I love it! After using it for a few days I had absolutely no reason to apply a lotion, my skin feels so silky smooth and hydrated. The shower cream is a really interesting texture, not oily at all, really more like a lotion but then it lathers amazingly well when you apply it to a shower pouf. I only used it this way, because it is my favorite way to use any kind of shower gel or cream. The smell of this body wash is heavenly, not overly perfumy, and not super floral. It is more woody and rich, which really added to my shower experience. For the price this body wash rocks!
I have used Big Sexy Hair What a Tease Backcomb in a Bottle with some pretty good results also. I did like the hint to use the rat tail comb and found that to be very helpful. Actually, sometimes I had thought what is the difference between a product like this --- root lifter --- and/or just plain hair spray?? So I tried to use my hairspray in the same manner but it just did not do the same job. The root lifter seemed to be very similar to this. I do like the volume that seems to be added with the use of this 'tease'. It does what it claims to an extent. Do not use this thinking that you will have the Big Sexy Hair in its name. You will have the appearance of more volume and body but you will not have Big Hair. I guess maybe I should not say that -- I did not. As I said I did not but that doesn't mean that you won't. You will see the appearance of bigger hair. It is definitely worth the investmentif you have very fine or thin hair!
