Wow, don't know what I've been waiting for on the Bare Minerals- hear so many raves about it.

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.

Bliss Plum Body Butter is a reason to get up in the morning--and the Soap in a Jar that goes with it is a reason to shower! YUM!

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.

bgirl, I use bare minerals too...it's awesome isn't it? It's not expensive and it works as well as the infomercial says. My first shipment lasted me like 8 months or something. It covered all of my skin problems that I had, and since I started using just that on my face, I don't have any acne for the first time in almost 2 years.

The Fresh soaps are sooooo expensive (11 bucks a pop), but sooooo good: lots of lather and the wonderful scent lasts through the life of the bar (the fig/apricot in particular smells like Heaven). I also like their lip-plumping Gloss Absolute in Dahlia (again, outrageously expensive at 24 bucks). Never tried the mascara, tho.

Anyone know anything about "fresh" products? I see them everywhere but have never tried. I've heard especially good things about their mascara.

I have been using this GREAT "product" that has made my heels (feet) sooooo soft and pink and pretty!!!! I am just thrilled as I have always been one to go barefoot or wear minimal shoe-age and my feet have SUFFERED!!! I believe this may also rank as one of the strangest foot softening "products" but I LOVE it. It's an
80 GRIT SANDING DISK !!!! from the MR.'s work place. Usually used as attachment for electric metal sander / grinder but I thought it would be perfect to smooth down my heels and OH MY does it ever!!!! I am soooo happy now that I have pretty feet and can wear nice, summer shoes and not be ashamed of my ICKY heels. Of couse the MR. thinks I am completely NUTS and says it's embarrassing (?) but I'm happy with the results so he can be as embarrassed as he wants, as long as he keeps bringing home the sanding disks for me!!!!! WOOHOO for pretty feet!
