i use baby wipes to take off my make up. i use the one with aloe in it. not sure if it's good or bad, but i tell myself it's good. lol. they're much cheaper than buying real makeup wipes from like mac or somewhere. and you get more of them.

i like the st. ives acne/blackhead scrub. it feels nice, like it's getting off all the bad stuff and dry skin.

the queen helene(?) mint julep mask feels nice too.

great tips everyone!
thank you and keep them coming!

hey - neat one about grinding green tea & sugar for a scrub
i'm gonna try the J&J baby wipes too.
btw: those of you who remove eyemakeup with oil - don't your eyes get all puffy?

I recently tried Sally Hansen Fast and Flawless Airbrush Makeup in No Color and I was quite impressed. Instead of spraying it in my hand and applying with my hand like the directions state (how is it airbrush if you do it like that?) i sprayed it directly on my face, eyes closed of course, and then used a foundation brush to even it out. You can use it as a foundation or a foundation primer but I find I only need to use translucent loose powder over it and I'm done. And my skin really looks flawless or airbrushed. I def. recommend.

I second Jane eyeshadows! They are pretty densely pigmently -- and sooo cheap!

Milani is my new favorite drugstore brand. The eyeshadows are pretty good, although the color selection is not so good. Their blushes, however, are awesome! I have about 5 of them-- less than 4 bucks a pop, too.

FRUIT of the EARTH Cocoa Butter.


Simply amazing results with my skin and only about $2.50 for a big bottle of it.

My skin was breaking out (whiteheads, dry skin splotches) and was extremely dry, but after a few days using this, my face is super soft, no whiteheads... wow, such a great product! I have yet to try their other products though.

I totally agree. I have the Milani blush in Luminous and it's fantastic.
