Okay...there, I think I really am done now.
...and after hearing your baking soda beauty tip last year, I, my deah, have been doing the same it also feels soooooo good on the skin! Also, I love it as a hair clarifier - makes my highlights brighter -

One more thing I remembered - at the beauty supply I picked up a pair of exfoliating gloves and use them pretty much every day.

Oh, and don't forget Mudd Mask (cheapo and excellente).

No wonder I can't get away with a carry on - I'm carrying allathis beauty-type stuff!

I love BS !
My hair dresser always tells me to wash/use that on my hair the day before I go get highlights/color. She said it removes all the product build up !!!

BS??? Kelly you never told me about this............hhhmm I'll have to give it a try. Funny ya'll talk about the BS for your hair. I managed a highend salon for a couple of years and I never heard this one. Ya learn something new everyday. I got highlights once and no one even noticed I guess my hair is to light.

Oh I forgot my most important product:

Paul Mitchell medium Hold Style Super sculpt, for those fly away days.

Also I give myself pedi's and I use Bath and Body works True Blue Spa line...I love the Shea Butter foot cream and smoothing foot scrub.

Also for lotion I use dove Summer glow. I love Dove products, use them for my shampoo and conditioner

Question

Since a lot of women have said they use Regenerist, I have a question about the serum. What exactly is it supposed to do and does it actually do it? I have sun damage on my face but mostly I have marks from years of acne. Would it help with this kind of stuff? I am using their daytime moisturizers and the night cream right now but hesitated when it came to the serum.

Oh and no girlie girl here...eye liner and mascara - that's about it for me. Although, after reading this thread I may become a girlie girl

This is so much fun!
My name is Louise and I am a beauty product Ho.

I will try almost anything once from high end to drug store products.


Lip balm, Chap Stick & Lobello by Nivea. I have tubes all over the house!
St.Yves Collagen Elasting Advanced Therapy Lotion. I use on for my hands mostly (like 10 times a day!) but it is a great every day all over moiturizer. I think I would die if I couldn't have these two items! I can't stand to have dry lips or hands!

Vitabath Spring Green bath & shower gel. Have been using this for years!! I get a 32 oz. bottle for Christmas every year. (hey, Carole )

Neutrogena Light Sesame Body oil. Love it! (hey again, Carole )

Dove Deep Moisture Body Wash. I am addicted to the smell!

Cleansing Towelettes, I have found the Walmart brand Equate to be the best ones and I have tried numerous brands. And I do wash my face with Dove soap (my mouth too sometimes )

Johnson's ph 5.5 Facial Care Moisturizer has been my favorite but I can't get it anywhere anymore. So now I will give the Oil of Olay line a try, got the Serum already.

Estee Lauder's Maximum Cover to conceal broken capillaries on my cheeks. I cannot live without this!!!Jodeci you might want to give it a try. It says on the tube that it conceals acne scars, birthmark, sun spots and variscose veins. This is good stuff!

My favorite liquid foundation is Max Factor Whipped Creme formula although I have a couple different ones that I also use. Sharon Stone uses it too!

Mascara - I always go back to Maybelline Full & Soft. It does exactly what it says and there is no clumping, smearing and smudging. For a full out effect I will use the XXL Volume + Lenght one. Lancome is a favorite too. I bought Mac's Zoom, it has a nice initial effect but it flakes like crazy.

Mac eyeshadows or Revlon if I get dolled up to go out. Love my Mac cosmetic brushes too!

Blush - I'me liking the Rimmel alot lately

Lipsticks - my favorite brands are Estee Lauder and Lise Watier for staying power. I recently bought Revlon's Super Lustrous "Wine with Everything", it is a really nice red. Of course I use a lipliner to prevent my lipstick from bleeding up to my nostrils.

OPI nail polish - my favorite color is I'm Not Really The Waitress!

Lipgloss - Christion Dior's Clear. It tastes so nice. But I have bought a few Cover Girls Wet Slicks and I love them alot. I dont like gloss that feels sticky and these are great for that.

I never go out without earrings, I would feel naked if I did. And then I top it off with a dab of perfume, another one of my addictions. You should see my collection - thank gawd for Duty Free shopping.

Using it as an exfoliator on the bod/face. It makes your skin soooo smooth

Everyday or just a couple times a week? What about in the hair?

Another product in common... it's on my nails and tooties right now.

I forgot about fragrance - I've been wearing Clinique Wrappings and Happy layered for years and years, so long that it's probably permanently embedded in my pores.

I'll alternate occasionally with Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue. (and ditto on the Duty Free)

Becky - I take a paper cup with about 1/4 cup, mix with hot water and rinse through my hair as a clarifier.
