Check out my blog... it's sprinkled with reviews of my favorite products, beauty tips, nail art, and money-saving tips!
For years, I always reached for the liquid version of Pepto-Bismol. A few months back, a friend at work gave me a packet of the chewable tablets, and I was very surprised at how much better they worked. For me, the tablets help with the symptoms much more than liquid. Plus, the tastes isn't as dreadful, haha.
As a hairstylist, I often suffer from back and shoulder soreness and pain. Looking for an alternative to pain medication, I found a box of Salonpas patches at Kmart and thought I'd give them a try. That was over 5 years ago and I will never go without them. They apply easily, will stay put throughout the day, and come off easily without pulling off a layer of skin in the process! Highly recommended.
Although this foundation isn't my number one favorite, it is a solid foundation... especially for dry skin. I'm more of a combination skin type, so I found this foundation is a little too "oily" for my liking. It starts out wonderful, but by midday, my skin starts to become shiny and oily. If you're looking for a full coverage foundation, this is a good choice.
Oh my goodness! Where has this liner been my whole adult life!? After trying countless liquid liners, this one is now my all-time favorite. I can get many different looks from this one liner depending on how I hold it, and the amount of pressure applied. It glides on effortlessly, without tugging at the skin. I highly recommend trying it out!
I really wanted to like this product, but after trying it multiple times, there were just too many problem areas. First, it is way too messy. I continually had "fall-out" on my cheeks throughout the day. Also, the product is so pigmented, it was impossible to get a natural look. I felt like it was way too bold and fake looking for my liking.
The applicator is very awkward and hard to use. I had problems getting the actual product on my brows and not on my face. It may become easier with more practice, however I feel like a brow product needs to be easy and mess free from the beginning. Product provided free through Influenster for reviewing purposes.
This was the first facial spray I tried and I fell in love with how wonderful a facial spray is! I just love that refreshing feeling mid-way through a long work day. It also helps set my makeup first thing in the morning. If you've never tried one, Mario Badescu is outstanding! Highly recommended!
Lowe's can be a dangerous place for my budget, especially if I take the hubby along! We are slowly remodeling areas of our home, so we spend a lot of time at Lowe's. I love their large selection of flooring, lighting fixtures, etc. There's also a very nice garden section that stays stocked and priced just right during the spring and summer months. I always purchase my flowers, mulch, etc from Lowes.
If you like face oils, you'll probably LOVE this one from Pacifica! It's the perfect formula for dry and sensitive skin. I really like how light it feels on my skin. It also has a very pleasant subtle scent that I like. I'd definitely purchase this product again! Highly recommended.
