Bourjois – Eau de Gloss

Eau de Gloss is a high water content gloss.. moisturizing, and shiny but not sticky. Its got a little menthol in it so its very slightly cooling, not any flavor to it. Is supposed to last 4 hours, but I lick my lips a lot, so it lasts less for me, i do lick a little less because its not really a lickable gloss – but it is definitely a refreshing and perfect for the summer. I like it in clear. $15 at

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

I tried this in the clear, and loved it – now they have an spf 15 and for that reason alone – it is on my website. Basically, if you use foundation – you should be using a primer. It helps keep it in place, and keeps your face from getting all greasy halfway through the day. I have oily skin, so this helps my foundation wear longer. And when you put it on, it makes your skin soft and powdery smooth. Its like a powder gel. Even if you dont wear foundation, this stuff makes your skin look younger and softer. $42 for .98 oz. on

DHC – Deep Cleansing Oil

At first, I was skeptical – using something thats made of virgin olive oil to wash my face? but ofcourse, I will try anything and this stuff really takes every molecule of your makeup off and leaves your skin soft at the same time. Another thing I like about the company (which a lot of people haven’t even heard of ) is that when you buy, they send you plenty of samples.. then every few weeks they will send you a catalogue with even more samples inside, And you KNOW i love free samples.

$24 for 6.7 oz

Caress Exotic Oil Infusions – Morrocan

This is a very rich and lathery, sweet yet subtly spicy body wash that leaves your skin nice and soft. The name fits it, very exotic and unique smelling. You can still smell it after you wash. I still needed a moisturizer after I washed, but the only thing that was really rich enough that you didnt have to put on lotion after using, is sugar/oil scrubs. And those leave so much residue on your shower floor that I use them only on special occasions. This is a perfect everyday body wash – makes you feel very sexy. about $5 at

Anew Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector

Ive used so many creams, and as far as anti-wrinkle, this is one of my favorites. I started using it during my avon selling days a few years ago, and even at 30, i dont have any wrinkles yet. Who knows if it has anything to do with this cream, but it really makes your face feel soft and much smoother after i used it. The cream is very soft feeling, and its this hue of pink and has an interesting consistency. After I wash my face and put this on, my skin looks more even. I think most people really notice how it makes their skin feel relatively quickly.. I noticed a difference in the texture of my skin after a week. Just wish it would do something for acne too. 32.00 at – shop with my favorite avon rep (my former recruit!)

Orly Bonder – Makes nailpolish stick

I dont do my nails very often -I’m too lazy, but when I do, I want it to last more than 2-3 days. So I tried bonder, and it works very well.. Its like painting a layer of sticky coating on your nails that you can paint your regular nailpolish on top of. Most basecoats I’ve tried seem exactly like a clear topcoat – this was different, after I painted this on and it dried, I touched the top of my nail and it was sticky. When I painted on the polish, it went on really easily and didnt go all thin in certain areas and thick in others.. very even. Worth the 4.00 at most drug stores.

My favorite lipglosses

Todays list of good stuff.. Lipgloss Etc..

1. C.O. Bigelow Soda Flavored Lip Glosses – Cherry and Straberry Vanilla Shake are my favorites – probably the sweetest tasting lip glosses ive tried.
2. Burts Bees – Beeswax Lip Balm – By far the best unisex lip balm.. slightly minty and not greasy at all.. lasts long enough

3. Ganache For Lips – Made with Scharffen Berger Chocolate – very tasty – although not as great feeling on the lips.. somewhat grainy.. since I love chocolate, this one is high on my list
