We'll see...

Remember that post I wrote about Beauty.com's sale that they were having? Well lo and behold, my order came in less than 3 business days. I had never ordered from them before, but I sure as HELL will be ordering from them again.

Here's what I got:

On the Left: Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm with Natural Mint & Shea Butter
Hi, my name is Linda...and I'm a lip balm addict. *breaks down and weeps* I blame it on being little and wanting SO badly to wear makeup, but only being allowed to laboriously apply Cherry Chap Stick. I ALWAYS have lip balm on me. After reading a few reviews, I decided to give this Jack Black balm a shot. My first impression of it is that it is THICK. You really feel it go onto AND sink into your lips. We'll see how long before I have to reapply, but right now, I'm liking it.

In the Middle: Bliss Fat Girl Slim Firming Cream
Bliss describes this product as so:
"This advanced-technology adipose antagonist (which, in layman's terms, means it visibly diminishes those dastardly dimples) features QuSome-encapsulated caffeine molecules for quick and targeted delivery of the skin-slimming stuff of choice of supermodels, spokespeople and other celebs.

clinical studies show:*
87% saw a firming effect
85% felt a slimming effect
73% noticed a reduction in the appearance of cellulite

*Results reported from an independent clinical study conducted over a 28 day period."

Now, before anyone gets their haunches up, no, I don't think that I'm hugely fat or something. HOWEVER...I ain't gonna lie...there's a pinch of somethin'-somethin' back there that isn't what it used to be. I read a bunch of reviews on this product and there are so many that seem to give this a favorable review. I'm going to start using it tonight and see where I go from there. Expect a full review...though WITHOUT pictures. I figure that the worst case scenario is that I'll have the most buttery-soft thighs in all the land.

On the Right: John Masters Organics Lavender Rosemary Shampoo
I wish I didn't like this shampoo. I wish I could just be content buying the same White Rain or Suave 99¢ stuff I bought in high school. When I went to a new salon and they used this, I was SOLD. You guys, this smell is pure heaven. I hate the price, but I can't live without this smell in my life.

So now that I got these three items, I have to ask....
1) What is your favorite lip balm?
2) Have you ever used any kind of moisturizer similar to the Bliss one I bought? Did it work for you?
3) What's your favorite over-priced, guilty indulgence - be it for beauty or otherwise?

Duuuuuude! I LOVE Jack Black Lip Balm. The Mint & Shea Butter is great, but I think my favorite is the Grapefruit & Ginger, It feels fantastic and for me it actually works!

So far, I'm REALLY digging it, especially to slather on right before I go to sleep.

OMG, I'm going to have to try the Grapefruit one - I'm a sucker for citrus-smelling balms. Thank you!
