Night of Olay Firming Cream
    I've been on the lookout for a good moisturizer to use overnight. I'm still battling dryness, and my daily moisturizer just isn't heavy enough. But, with the warmer weather, I don't want to wear something very heavy during the day.

    This is a lovely, light cream that left my skin feeling incredibly smooth and soft. I've not used it enough to be able to tell if there's a difference, but I'm hopeful it'll at least moisturize me some more. The firming isn't something I need yet, but why not get a head start?

Aussie Dual Personality Anti-Frizz Cream and Leave-In Conditioner
    I ran out of my beloved OSIS Magic Serum, which I can only find on-line, and decided to try and find something more readily available (and cheaper would be nice, too) that would work just as well. I've also been looking for a leave-in conditioner, since my curls get very dry, very easily.

    I used this tonight after my shower, and while all the sleeping I've done today (thus, rolling around on the pillow) has allowed for some frizzies, I'm overall pleased with what it's done for my hair. It smells nice, isn't greasy, goes on easily, and doesn't leave my hair feeling unpleasant. One of the selling points for the OSIS product was that it still left my hair touchably-soft while taming the frizz. John Freida tends to leave my hair feeling greasy, which I dislike, and most mousse products give me crunchy curls, which I really dislike.

    So time will tell if this will replace my OSIS, but my initial reaction is that I very much like it

In the near future, I plan to try the Aussie Moist Shampoo, and L'Oreal Colorstay Sheer Lipcolor, which I saw last night and managed to restrain from buying.

MMU fiends....

Anybody here like the scents Pink Baby Doll and Push Up Bra?

I got a free 4oz PBD in a shower gel (State of Shea I think, but it's upstairs and I'm too lazy to look). I then bought a 4oz PUB in Hempisphere because I needed something to complement it, and I HATE them, they're just not my kind of scent....

SO...anyone who wants these for FREE, (I've used them once), just let me know!
