Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure

I bought this new nail polish from Sally Hansen called Complete Salon Manicure. I love doing my nails but don't always have the time to do a base coat, color & top coat. If I'm lucky, I have enough time to do a coat of color & a top coat.

With this polish, it's so easy - You get all 5 Steps of a Salon Manicure in 1 Bottle. With one swipe of the brush, you get a Base Coat, Strengthener, Growth Treatment, Color and Top Coat. It really doesn't get easier than this!

I bought the 'Shell We Dance,' it's a pale pink (my favorite, classic look). I got my bottle at Target for about $6.50, which isn't too bad. I love the color and the wide brush makes applying so easy and smooth. Great product - you should definitely buy it!

Nicole by OPI Nail Lacquer Spring 2009 Collection, Love Your Life

I just bought this amazing nail polish from Opi Nicole. The color is called 'Love Your Life.' It is a very light clear pink that has multi-colored glitter and these adorable little pink hearts!

I haven't seen a polish this cute in a really long time. It looks great alone and you can put it over any color. I wish I was able to find a bigger picture so you could see it better but I couldn't.

The polish is almost clear, although it looks like a really, really light pink to me. The hearts are adorable, there just the perfect little size and color. They don't look cheesy because they're subtle. I absolutely love this polish - I think it's my new favorite.

L'Oreal Go 360 Facial Cleanser with Scrublet

I bought this new Loreal facial cleanser because I love anything that can help with large pores and oily skin. This is an oil free cleanser that you use with the built in scrublet.

This is a deep cleaning cleanser that unclogs pores, removes oil, dirt & makeup. It helps reduce oily areas, dry skin patches and blemishes.

The scrublet is super soft and flexible. It activates the cleanser and creates a great lather. The scrublet helps unclog pores and once you're done, your face looks so much smoother.

I love how my face looks after I use this cleanser. My pores look smaller and my face feels clean. There are 4 types of cleanser to choose from: sensitive, deep cream cleanser, deep facial cleanser & deep exfoliating cleanser (which is what I bought).

You should definitely pick up this cleanser - you can find it almost anywhere for around $5 - $7 (depending on what store you buy it at). I bought mine at Ulta on sale for $4.99!

CHANEL Spring 2010 Makeup Collection

I am so excited about all of the beautiful new spring makeup! I had to let everyone know about this amazing spring makeup collection from Chanel. For Spring, Chanel's collection if focusing on neutrals. I absolutely love neutrals, it's my favorite look for makeup. I also really love Chanel since it is by far some of the best makeup ever. I really haven't seen neutrals this beautiful in quite some time.

Once again, Chanel has made some of the most beautiful makeup and as always, their collections are classic and timeless.

The collection consists of:

Radiant Glow Highlighting Powder
Natural Finish Pressed Powder
Powder Blush
Sheer Illuminating Fluid
Quadra Eye Shadow
Precision Eye Definer
Glossimer (Lipgloss)
Nail Colour
Extreme Shine Nail Lacquer

The radiant glow highlighting powder is a limited edition, so you would definitely not want to miss out on this beautiful makeup. I am going to get as many items from this collection as I can and I hope you can too!

Korres Body Scrub

I bought this body scrub from Korres recently and used it a few times. Korres products usually don't smell too nice but I like the fact that they are natural and good for your skin, so I figured I would give this scrub a shot.

First of all, the smell is not that great. I usually like my beauty products to smell nice so that I enjoy using them. As far as the scrub goes, it's not that exfoliating. I don't know if it's just too weak for me, but it doesn't really feel like it exfoliates much.

After using this body scrub a few times I have to say that I am not happy with it. It doesn't smell good, doesn't exfoliate good and definitely isn't worth $17. It definitely has to go back, I wouldn't recommend buying this product.

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion

I have been using this lotion from Skin MD called shielding lotion which can be used on face, body & hands. This is a natural lightweight lotion which is hypo-allergenic, fragrance free, paraben free and dermatologist tested.
It's supposed to help the skin restore itself and enhance it's protective functions. It's also supposed to help the skin heal itself naturally and regain a youthful appearance. I have been using this lotion on my arms and hands. I have had a problem with bumps on my upper arms for quite some time and have tried tons of lotions but nothing really ever worked for me.

I used this lotion for about 1 1/2 weeks and was quite surprised that my arms have totally cleared up! My arms have not been clear in I don't even know how long - that's how long it's been. This lotion is very lightweight and soaks in quickly- you're not left with any greasiness or residue.

You can buy this amazing lotion at (I'm not sure what stores you might be able to get it at). It's about $18 for a 4oz bottle which is a great deal for this lotion. If you have dry skin or you don't like really heavy lotions, especially with summer coming in a few months, you should definitely try Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion - it's a great product.
