mark shimmer Glossblossom Ripening Lip Tint
f you are looking for an inexpensive lip gloss that adds a touch of color plus a little something extra, this is the one for you! The texture of this gloss is a slightly thin liquid gel that is not sticky. I immediately felt my lips soften while the gloss itself was so light it felt like it had completely absorbed within seconds. The ripening lip tint happened within a few minutes. It was a very pretty natural pink that just deepened my natural lip color, but with the added shimmer. In addition, my lips were perfectly moisturized and never felt dry or chapped while I wore it. I loved the subtle tint effect that didn't become overwhelmingly bright pink/urple, but still made me feel like I wasn't completely bare. The shimmer was really, really pretty. It was not over the top in any way but just added that special touch to my perfectly pink shade. It also had a very pleasant light berry fragrance/flavor. The staying power was also very good, with my pink shade lasting several hours before I needed a touch up. I also loved using it just before bed so that I woke up with that little extra bit of color on my lips (which I'm not sure if my husband actually noticed! :) This is a special lip product that I don't plan on being without now!

Caress Evenly Gorgeous Body wash manages to take a scent concept that has been done before in many body care products - the brown sugar/vanilla combo - (although the second scent is listed by Caress as Karite Shea Butter) - and manages to not only make it unbelievably decadent, but combines it with a super moisturizing formula that anyone (even if you're not looking for a drugstore bargain) will love! With the "whoosh" of these two notes hitting my nose as I opened the cap, I knew that this was going to be a very nice experience, and a very different drugstore body wash. The scent was soft, sugary, but not cloying or containing a fake plastic-y sugar element I've experienced in many inexpensive body care products. The scent is prominent - I certainly smelled it lingering for a while after my shower, but it was so lovely I didn't mind at all. The texture of the body wash is a fairly thick cream/gel blend. The exfoliating grains, which are sugar based, are very tiny. The exfoliation is very nice and will be appropriate for those of you with more sensitive skin as well. (If you want/need a more intense scrub just combine with scrubbing gloves or a more abrasive scrubbing cloth). My skin was very clean, soft and even better, very moisturized after rinsing the scrub off. I found that I didn't need much additional body lotion afterwards at all, and my skin stayed soft and smooth all day. The packaging is a like it or hate it affair I admit (the dress on the front is really not necessary in my opinion), but unless you are a real packaging snob, this shouldn't matter very much. You will have to like warm, sweet scents to use this product, but if you do, this is really one of the best and delivers an experience equal to many products which are much more expensive. Another plus - this bottle is HUGE and should last a few months if used about 2x week. This is a drugstore gem that you don't want to miss out on!

If you are a real scrub junkie like I am, then you know that you can certainly be wowed by a luxurious scrub from a high end brand. However, when I can also be wowed by a drugstore gem like this one from St. Ives, it really puts a smile on my face. The texture of this scrub is so different from what I usually experience with drugstore scrubs. It's not a creamy, grainy scrub. Instead it's a very thick (almost solid) creamy-white base with the exfoliating grains weaved within it. It reminded me a little of taking packed sand and adding water to make sculptures. I scooped a handful and began scrubbing my tough areas and it didn't melt immediately (you can add more/less water depending on how grainy you want the scrub). It retained some of it's solid nature throughout most of my shower. (This means it didn't end up all over the shower floor!). After rinsing I had soft, glowing skin with no residue or greasy feeling. After using 3x week for a few weeks, my skin looked much better and it took less and less product to keep up the results. Other nice features: It smelled wonderful, a light oceanic/green smell and because it was so concentrated, it lasted a long time. My skin is not super dry, but this definitely gave me a nice layer of moisture and didn't dry it out or make it raw while I was scrubbing. This should be in your shower caddy ASAP!
