Review: Bliss fatgirl products

Hi my name is Jacqueline and I am a beauty junkie.
Hi Jacqueline.

Well ladies, in my time as a beauty and product junkie (almost 3 years) I have always stared at but never purchased any products from the Bill 'FatGirl' line.

I recently purchased the Bliss FatGirlSlim Treatment Kit ($38) it contains 2oz FatGirlScrub, 2oz FatGirlSlim, 2oz FatGirlSleep, and a Slimulator.

I have been using these items for about three weeks, and loving every one of the items. They're good for a quick and easy fix to cellulite, but will not permanently remove your cottage cheese. The line leaves your skin feeling taut, tingly, and leaves behind a light bubblegum/eucalyptus mint scent.

In your morning showers, use FatGirlScrub all over your trouble spots on your stomach, legs, and backside, and gently rub into your skin with the Slimulator. After the shower, apply a thin layer of FatGirlSlim all over the desired areas, and apply another thin layer of FatGirlSleep before bed.

Overall, this is a fun line that gives you some results, but don't expect anything too crazy right away.

Review: October 2011 Birchbox

This month's box includes:
Befine Lip serum- A lip-healing wonder: Befine's vitamin-rich Lip Serum heals and smoothes cracked or dry lips.

blinc mascara- This tubing mascara won't smear, smudge, or run -- plus it gives lashes a sassy, extra glossy look.

Pangea Organics Japanese Matcha Tea Facial Mask- This natural, antioxidant-packed mask does it all: purifies, exfoliates, balances, and hydrates. Use it once a week for skin so smooth you won't even need makeup.

Orofluido Beauty Elixir- We don't know what we love more -- this hair treatment's trio of nourishing essential oils (argan, linseed, cyperus) or its intoxicating vanilla amber scent.

Birchbox Treat: Tea Forte Minteas- Our new obsession, these tasty mints are infused with energizing yerba mate and rich cocoa.

Check out Birchbox:

Quote du Jour: Julia Roberts as Vivian Ward

Julia Roberts as Vivian Ward in the movie Pretty Woman.

Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now.

I appreciate this whole seduction thing you've got going on here, but let me give you a tip: I'm a sure thing.

When I was a little girl, my mama used to lock me in the attic when I was bad, which was pretty often. And I would- I would pretend I was a princess... trapped in a tower by a wicked queen. And then suddenly this knight... on a white horse with these colors flying would come charging up and draw his sword. And I would wave. And he would climb up the tower and rescue me. But never in all the time... that I had this dream did the knight say to me, "Come on, baby, I'll put you up in a great condo."
