OH WOW - check this out! I was doing my online banking thingy today to figure out what kind of spendage I have and I saw this charge against my account that I could not figure out, so I call the bank. They tell me the charge is from Bare Minerals BUT I am not supposed to get but 2 shipments per year and I just got one 2 months ago! So I call Bare Minerals and ask them what's going on. Appearently, my shipping info never downloaded correctly in their system and they were still doing the every 60 days thing with my account. So I told them I didn't need the stuff cause I already have too much and that I had submitted the correct shipping info months ago! They were REALLY REALLY cool about it and said they will refund my money in 5 to 7 days AND they want me to keep the new shipment (for FREE) when it gets here instead of sending it back to them like I was going to do. They got my shipment dates straight so I won't get another now until November.
Soooooo, I get 2 foundations and a mineral veil for free!!!!!!
Ok, so here's the part where I get really cool..... DOES ANYONE WANT THIS SHIPMENT WHEN I GET IT? I WILL MAIL IT TO YOU AND YOU CAN TRY IT OUT FOR FREE IF YOU WANT. I use the light / fairly light foundations and I can't really remember if I signed up for 2 foundations of the same shade or not, but whatever they are they WILL BE light / fair shades! And a Mineral Veil. That is what my usual shipment is. Depending on WHERE you are, it may take me a minute to get enough $$$$ together for shipping but probably no more than a week, if you can be patient. I mean hey, it's FREE right? Ok, so this is gonna be first come first serve and I'm still waiting on the package myself, but they say it's on the way already. To be fair, I'll go with the first email request I receive. Here is the addy: star_flower74@yahoo.com and I'll be happy to unload this stuff on someone as soon as it gets here, barring any postal service disasters or lost shipment. I'll let you know when (if?) I get it.

dude, i wish i could be in on the bare minerals love, but to me it was like dusting some dirt on my face. it looked wierd and it made me break out. :/
but luckily that lead me to be best product ever which is Lorac oil-free liquid foundation. it blends perfectly and doesn't cause massive breakouts.

jungalista - from what I've gathered. Mineral Veil is something that goes on after the foundation to kind of lock in and finish off the "look"...... I think it serves other purposes too, but when I read about it, that's what I understood of it. How much is it exactly? I can not find it in my catalog anywhere.....

Someone please tell me what the BM mineral veil is and why it's so expensive. Is it really worth it?

I gave up makeup for over 10 years before I discovered Bare Minerals. Now that's all I'll wear on my face.

Count me among the Bare Minerals fans. I originally tried it when I was going through one of my "cosmetics are killing me" phases. (Usually followed by a "to hell with it, I'll leave a beautiful corpse whose lips are lacquered with a thick coat of Viva Glam," after being seduced by the Mac counter.)

Less is definitely more, though. It can look a little too opaque. And it works best over totally bare skin.

I really doubted those Crest White Strips, but I decided to try them last summer and they worked amazingly well. Two days after I started using them a friend who didn't know I was whitening made a comment on how white my teeth were. I used them last August and they're still white as they were when I started.

I just used the two week strips because they were cheaper.

Can anyone recommend an over-the-counter tooth whitener? My coffee habit is making my smile yucky. (just give up coffee you say? curses!)

Mirabella, strangely enough, it has an overall woodsy smell, like pine or cedar without being disinfectant-y. You can detect the individual grapefruit and rosemary notes underneath. But yeah, I thought "forests of Heaven" was very nice and rather poetic (he tends to talk that way)!

He said "the forests of Heaven"?!?! Wow. I am very intrigued to smell this now.Also, pamplemousse sounds like a Dr. Seuss thing.

About the detergent, I think it would be fine for sensitive skin. I have pretty sen. skin myself and I also washed some of my daughter's clothes in it (she is only 8 mths. old) and we are both itch-free.

Much love for Rescue Beauty Lounge's Rosemary Pamplemousse Body Cream. Pricey, but moisturizes nicely, has a VERY subtle sparkle (visible only in bright sunlight), and smells DIVINE. The guy at the convenience store said I smelled "like the forests of Heaven". I am impressed.

lurvpaint - I am just using it by hand. Attached to the sander might be a bit much, ha ha ha!! I just started using it because the Mr. had them on hand at his shop and it made sense after thinking about it. I was actually going to go buy a pumice stone (?) but I remembered the last time I tried one it just wasn't enough, you know? Since I have also been a metal worker, as the Mr. is now, I remembered the cool little sanding/ deburring disks, and that's all she wrote! My heels are sooooo nice and pink and soft. You would not believe all the dead skin dust I create when I get to sanding! And since I am doing it by hand, I don't have to worry about getting a sanding burn or anything. I sand a little, brush off, sand a little more and work my way around my heel. I am really very happy with the results and the disks last for a long time (all you do to clean is pat them off on a cloth, I use the side of my leg, to knock the skin dust off) and are not very expensive if you're buying them. I use 80 grit.

voodoo princess - that sander disk you're not attaching it to a sander are you? you're just sanding your foot by hand? (hee hee how strange it feels to ask that question) I too have those cranky heels that need lots of attention once take my feet out of socks.

mirabella - how do you think that deterg. would do for sensitive skin? I want to try it but usually, for me, the better smelling the product(soap and detergent), the more it bothers my skin..... I just don't want to be smellin' good AND itchy, you know?

Gain Apple Mango Tango laundry detergent is sooooo good!!! Not really a "product" I guess, but definitely rave-worthy. It is making the whole house smell good.
