The winning blushes

From Drugstores:

From Department Stores:

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion ($23 for 4.2 oz.)

The winning body products

From Drugstores:

St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($3)

* New winner!

Just how good is it? “If I were stuck on a deserted island, this is the one beauty product I’d want!†Voters also praise the smell— “a combination of apricots and a fragrant flower gardenâ€â€”and the fact that it “exfoliates gently†and makes skin “much softer.â€

From Department/Specialty stores:

Bath & Body Works Signature Collection Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion ($10)

* Second-time winner!

Has a “scrumptious†smell and serious “lasting power—I apply it in the morning, and the scent is still there late in the afternoon.†Reminds one woman of “baking cookies when I was a kid.â€

I use a lot of these products! lol.

I have to give a big "YUCK!!!!!!" to Maybelline Great Lash and VS "Heavenly", though.

The Great Lash is so watery, I can't imagine how it would do any good for anyone. And "Heavenly" makes me GAG! Totally nasty imo. lol.

Great Lash is just nasty. And Britney's perfume smells like something a little girl would wear (perfect for her and what seems to be her maturity level).

Great body lotion choices tho, and I love St. Ives masques and scrubs.

I love the St Ives apricot scrub better than any of the high end exfoliators I've used. Why spend more if you don't have to?..........did I just say that.

it! Are you serious? lol. It's so watery that it doesn't lengthen or thicken and it just smears all over my cheeks and lids! lol. So, no, I don't like Great Lash.

Well, Glamour swears it's based on reader choices. I know Great Lash is pretty well liked among a few ladies here, and it did make the list on last year's Best of MuT Awards.
