May Bye Bye Loves: Makeup and Fragrance
Bare Minerals - Blemish Therapy - .03 oz. $18 bareescentuals.com
I LOVE this product! It is now in new (smaller) packaging at a lower price, listed above. It comes with a mini concealer brush which is helpful so you are not using your other face brushes on your blemish. I experience occasional breakouts and while this is not a miracle overnight fix, it does help to make your blemishes go away quickly. Most importantly, it does it gently! Most products I have tried for breakouts are so harsh and leave dry patches where the blemish was afterwards. This heals the problem area and conceals it at the same time. When I get a breakout I just use this and nothing else; it conceals every bit of redness. I love, love, love it and will always repurchase it. In fact, I already have :)
Rite Aid Renewal - Gentle Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes - 10 pack Rite Aid
I bought this 10 pack for a trip I went on last month and I really enjoyed them! The towelettes are thick and textured. One towelette removes all of my makeup and it doesn't leave a tacky residue behind. I have other makeup removing wipes that I am trying now, but I have a feeling that I will pick these up again.
Philosophy - Falling in Love Perfumed Body Spritz - 8 fl. oz. $25 qvc.com
I love all of Philosophy's fragrances, but Falling in Love is my all time favorite! It was the first fragrance I ever tried by Philosophy (almost 10 years ago) and I instantly fell in love. I would have to say that it is my favorite fragrance, period! I have gone through quite a few bottles of the Spray Fragrance over the years and I continue to repurchase it. It is sweet, but fresh smelling at the same time. If you have not tried it, you must! This is the first Body Spritz that I have tried and it smells just like the Spray Fragrance, it just doesn't last as long. I usually keep this one in my car or purse to reapply throughout the day. It is great for travel because it is in a plastic bottle. The only thing I didn't like was that I couldn't use it all. There still is a bit left in the bottom that I can't spray out. I will definitely be repurchasing this one, though :)
Bath and Body Works - Dancing Waters Body Splash - 8 fl. oz. $12.00 bathandbodyworks.com
I really loved this fragrance! So fresh and clean with a hint of citrus. A perfect everyday scent. I also liked using it throughout the day because this scent did not compete or clash with any other fragrance I was wearing. The hand soaps are still available online, but it looks like the Dancing Waters body care has been discontinued. I would definitely repurchase. Maybe I will find it during their semi-annual sale next month.
CVS - Strengthening Nail Polish Remover - 10 fl oz CVS
This was fine. Not amazing, not awful... its polish remover. Does anyone "love" their polish remover? I would repurchase, but there isn't a CVS within my typical travels these days, so now I am trying one from Rite Aid.
Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?
