May Bye Bye Loves: Makeup and Fragrance

Bare Minerals - Blemish Therapy - .03 oz. $18
I LOVE this product!  It is now in new (smaller) packaging at a lower price, listed above.  It comes with a mini concealer brush which is helpful so you are not using your other face brushes on your blemish.  I experience occasional breakouts and while this is not a miracle overnight fix, it does help to make your blemishes go away quickly.  Most importantly, it does it gently! Most products I have tried for breakouts are so harsh and leave dry patches where the blemish was afterwards. This heals the problem area and conceals it at the same time.  When I get a breakout I just use this and nothing else; it conceals every bit of redness. I love, love, love it and will always repurchase it.  In fact, I already have :)

Rite Aid Renewal - Gentle Makeup Removing Cleansing Towelettes - 10 pack Rite Aid
I bought this 10 pack for a trip I went on last month and I really enjoyed them!  The towelettes are thick and textured. One towelette removes all of my makeup and it doesn't leave a tacky residue behind.  I have other makeup removing wipes that I am trying now, but I have a feeling that I will pick these up again.

Philosophy - Falling in Love Perfumed Body Spritz - 8 fl. oz. $25
I love all of Philosophy's fragrances, but Falling in Love is my all time favorite!  It was the first fragrance I ever tried by Philosophy (almost 10 years ago) and I instantly fell in love.  I would have to say that it is my favorite fragrance, period! I have gone through quite a few bottles of the Spray Fragrance over the years and I continue to repurchase it.  It is sweet, but fresh smelling at the same time.  If you have not tried it, you must!  This is the first Body Spritz that I have tried and it smells just like the Spray Fragrance, it just doesn't last as long.  I usually keep this one in my car or purse to reapply throughout the day.  It is great for travel because it is in a plastic bottle.  The only thing I didn't like was that I couldn't use it all.  There still is a bit left in the bottom that I can't spray out. I will definitely be repurchasing this one, though :)

Bath and Body Works - Dancing Waters Body Splash - 8 fl. oz. $12.00
I really loved this fragrance! So fresh and clean with a hint of citrus. A perfect everyday scent.  I also liked using it throughout the day because this scent did not compete or clash with any other fragrance I was wearing. The hand soaps are still available online, but it looks like the Dancing Waters body care has been discontinued. I would definitely repurchase.  Maybe I will find it during their semi-annual sale next month.

CVS - Strengthening Nail Polish Remover - 10 fl oz CVS
This was fine.  Not amazing, not awful... its polish remover.  Does anyone "love" their polish remover? I would repurchase, but there isn't a CVS within my typical travels these days, so now I am trying one from Rite Aid.

Have you tried any of these products? What do you think of them?
