gillette fusion proglide shaving razorGIllette’s tagline has been “the best a man can get” for years, but I’ve caught on to their game. This woman is stepping up and demanding the best. After a girlfriend’s husband raved about how great his Gillette Fusion ProGlide Shaving Razor was, I had to try one out for myself. I’ll admit it, I missed some of the girly nuances of the packages of women’s razors. But when I held the Fusion ProGlide Razor in my hand it felt good. It was hard and solid, not like my plastic Venus Razor and it moved effortlessly against my legs and took all that unwanted hair with it. I did notice one thing immediately, this baby will nick you if you’re not careful. Thanks to moisturizing cushions and all those other grand ideas in women’s razors I had gotten spoiled with the no-nick factor. But that nick was worth it, my legs were smooooooooth! I may never go back to a girly razor again, I am woman hear me roar!

You can get a Gillette Fusion ProGlide Shaving Razor for $10.99 at ulta.com.
up-and-up-eye-makeup-remover.jpgI may not wear a lot of makeup (about the only thing I put on regularly is eye makeup) but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a proper way of removing it. Every night before bed I put some up & up eye makeup remover (AKA Target brand) on a cotton round and swipe it across my eyes several times to get all the makeup and mascara off. The formula is perfect for removing stubborn eye makeup and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. And best of all because it’s Target brand, it won’t set you back a fortune.

You can find up & up eye makeup remover for $4.54 at Target.com.
maybelline-great-lash-lots-of-lashes.jpgI’ve used the same mascara (Cover Girl Lash Blast Lengthening Mascara) for a couple years. And every time I try a new formula, I’m reminded why I shouldn’t stray. But if you follow beauty at all, then you know that Maybelline’s Great Lash Mascara is a top rated formula, even amongst its pricier competition. But it was the latest Great Lash Formula, named Lots of Lashes, that caught my attention and made me purchase a tube. With a tiny brush head and the perfect little “grabber” bristles, it coats lashes in great color and makes my eyes pop beautifully!   I don’t think I’ll be going back to old faithful anytime soon.

jennifer-garner-11072011.jpgA beautiful and expecting Jennifer Garner attended an AFI premiere of her new movie ‘Butter’  this past week. But it wasn’t her drapey dress, strappy sandals, or barely there makeup that caught my eye — it was her nail polish. With her hand perfectly poised on her hip I saw flashes of gun metal grey with a bit of sparkle and became entranced. 

I don’t know exactly which products she used to achieve this great color, but my nail color know-how tells me that this can certainly be copied at home. First you’ll need a great grey base polish, try OPI’s French Quarter for Your Thoughts or my personal fave, Essie’s Chinchilly. Next you need a sparkly top coat with a silver sheen to it, SEPHORA by OPI Flurry Up Top Coat or Sally Hansen’s Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear in In the Spotlight will work nicely. Start with a good coat or two of the grey base and then apply the sparkle. Try this trick with any of your fave fall colors and watch them sparkle on through the holiday season!
shower-gels-under-25.jpgI’m a self-professed shower gel junky, my linen closet has been known to overflow with them as I covet every scent I can get my hands on in every formula imaginable. But I will admit that while I’m a sucker for their frothy goodness, I have a select few that are near and dear to my heart!

First up is Philosophy Sugar Sprinkles Funnel Cake Shampoo, Shower Gel & Bubble Bath. The smell of this shower gel is simply heaven-sent yummy, but it’s the formula that I love the most. Many of Philosophy’s bath products pack a tri-power punch, and while I don’t use them as shampoo often, it’s saved me a time or two (think post workout lifesaver).
$16 at Sephora.com.

Next is a drugstore wonder that is actually my current go to. Caress Silkening Body Wash Tahitian Renewal won’t set you back more than $5 and smells divine. Best of all it has these exfoliating beads in it that leave my skin feeling exfoliated and fresh.

I’ve previously discussed my desire to smell like a baked good at all times — Cake Beauty Desserted Island Supremely Rich Bath & Shower Froth aims to keep me on this mission. It smells like a coconuty-vanilla concoction and is extra thick and luxurious. Between the smell and the feel of my skin I find myself intoxicated.

Many of us suffer from acne on our bodies, and yet very few companies do anything to address this problem. I’m psyched to say that Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Body Wash Pink Grapefruit  is gentle enough to use even on sensitive skin. It is great even if you’re not experiencing a breakout and the pink grapefruit scent is light and refreshing.
$5.79 at Target.com.

Last, but certainly not least, is Soap & Glory Clean On Me Creamy Clarifying Shower Gel. This great shower gel also has a citrusy scent that almost smells sparkling, but it’s the super cleaning power that I love. It will help your skin get, and stay clean, something every girl wants in a shower gel.
