Products I Lurve

I have decided to devote a day each week or bi weekly to products I lurve. Don't set your calendar on it though.
WTH Wednesday is about the only this I do religiously.

Aveeno Positively Smooth Shower Shave Cream

This 2-N-! body was/shaving cream claims to help you shave less. The wash conditions your skin and softens the hair giving a longer "just shaved" feeling.
Tell you what, IT WORKS!!
I am like King Kong. Dark hair, Slavic get the picture.
So I literally have to shave everyday to look smooth and pretty and not like a hairy cactus.
I also have the absolute most driest skin. My legs look like road maps.
I have been using this for about 2 weeks and it's amazing.

I can actually wait to shave every 3rd day now and my skin looks amazing. Working on the underarms too. wOOT! This version is NOT found in most stores. This can be found on Amazon for $13.99 a bottle.
I purchased every bottle at my local Big Lots for $2.50@. Cha-CHING!!

Le Mer Creme de La Mer

La Mer was developed 40 years ago by Dr. Max Huber.
Renowned for its healing energies, this potent, nutrient-rich ferment helps soothe, nourish and renew the skin, encouraging it to focus on its natural reparative abilities.

I have been using for over 10 years. I have never found another cream that does what this cream does. It leaves my skin dewy soft and I have been told I look years younger then my true age. Amazing for acne,sun, and discoloration spots. 
La Mer has 3 different collections:
The Moisture Collection
The Body Collection
The Face Treatment

At the hefty price of $130 to $230 (1ozs-2ozs) it is expensive. But well worth it. 
One area of note. The cream is thick. So use sparingly. Sometimes you can score some FAB deals on this on Ebay

My friend Pamela raved about this product so I had her share her thoughts with us.

Clinique's High Shine-to-Go Glosswear Set.

I am a very happy girl with my purchase! 

The spectrum of colors in this set are very diverse, and they go on very sheer. You do have the ability to layer to get a little more pigment if you desire. They are very small .03 oz tubes that are easy to put in a pocket and carry around with you.  I had originally intended to give some of these colors away to friends, but I've become greedy and want them all. Since the colors are so sheer, they look good on just about anyone no matter your coloring.

The consistency of lip gloss by its very nature can be tricky. It can be gooey and sticky sometimes in order to come up with that glassy shine we crave. Up until now my two favorites were Stila's Lip Glaze and M.A.C. lipglass. After trying these samples of the Clinique High Shine-to-Go Glosswear Set, I have a new favorite lip gloss! The glosses give a very smooth shine with a hint of color that is perfect for the summer. They are on the slightly sticky side, but less than a lot of popular brands out there in the same price range. When the time comes, it will be hard to pick which color I'll want when the time comes to buy a full-size tube. 

This product can be found at Sephora. At $25 for 12 assorted colors, you just can't go wrong! 

Thanks Pam!! Pamela "SpazP" can be found Twitter and Goodreads. Look her up. She is fuuuuuuuunnny!

Check back next week for more products I lurve.

I've found that most Aveeno products are pretty decent. Their lotions are great as well.

Thanks for the reviews!

Candice-Your right. Aveeno is great. I use their oatmeal based products on kidlet for her eczema and it works like a charm.
