Love It, Loathe It: Friends Edition

Since I quite enjoy reading everyone’s posts about their monthly favorites I thought it would be fun to do something that would allow me to feature the likes and dislikes of some of my favorite people.  So that is exactly where the idea for the “Love It, Loathe It: Friends Edition” came from.  I plan to make this a regular feature on my site so keep an eye out for more posts like this one and please comment below to let me know what you think.

To kick things off, we’re going to begin with the lovely Carolina who was kind enough to be the first to take part.  Not only is she family and a fellow lip balm connoisseur, but she is a wife and full-time mommy on the go living in a big bustling city.  Without any further adieu, here are her answers to my questionnaire and accompanying picture.

Skin care product:

Love it:  Neutrogena Oil Free Moisture for combination skin – Best

face moisturizer ever (for me at least)!  Nice balance of hydration without

being oily or greasy.

Loathe it:  Burt’s Bees – Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub

smells really weird and when you’re done using it your face still feels


Bath or shower product:

Love it:  A loofah – I love loofahs, seriously they make you feel SO

clean.  Also, Moonlight Path Body Wash by Bath & Body Works or Yardley Oatmeal

& Almond Bar Soap, both smell wonderful, although my husband says the latter

smells like old lady.

Loathe it:  Dove products – They dry out my skin.  Soap, body wash

you name it.

Hair product or tool:

Love it:  BioSilk Silk Therapy – It makes your hair sleek and soft,

it smells great plus a small bottle lasts forever.  You only need a pea

size and that’s for long hair!

Loathe it:  Pillow Curlers (I think they’re by ConAir) – I’m a lazy hair

person so I gave these a try, they just made me look like I forgot to brush

my hair.


Love It:  Clinique quick eyes cream shadow in 01 sparkling nude –

I can get away with putting just this and some gloss on.  It is my grab and

throw on and run out the door eyeshadow.  The applicator is great too.

Loathe It:  Colored Mascara – I don’t get it.


Love it:  Currently I’m addicted to Palmer’s Dark Chocolate &

Peppermint gloss.  It gives the glossy shine without the stick and it gives

great hydration which is wonderful for a chap stick fanatic!

Loathe it:  Anything  from SoftLips – At first I loved them mainly

because of smell/taste but then it was like my lips built a barrier to them

and they made my lips feel like helmets.


Love it:  Clinique Almost Makeup in 02 light – It’s the only foundation

I get along with, it is super light and you don’t feel it.   Pretty much a

foolproof foundation once you pick your color.   I use a Clinique brush

applicator to apply it evenly.

Loathe it:  Sponge applicator – They make me feel like I’m

caking stuff on my face.


Love it:  Sinful Colors Professional in 944 Innocent – It’s the

best bright green nail polish.  I had it on my toes all summer.

Loathe it:  Super long fake nails – They look so unnatural!


Love it:  Ops! – It’s a Brazilian perfume I’ve loved since I think

junior hight school.  It has a really nice subtle scent, can’t get sick of

wearing it!

Loathe it:  I don’t like smelling like food.  Food scented

body sprays weird me out.


Love it:  Motherhood Maternity Jeans Skirt – I love my dark jean

skirt that fits me while I’m pregnant and after.

Loathe it:  Halter Top Dresses.


Love it:  Light Pashminas – They go with everything and keep you

warm when needed.

Loathe it:  Gladiator Sandals – I don’t understand Roman shoes for


Book, magazine, movie, tv show or game:

Love it:  Pride & Prejudice – the book by Jane Austin & the newest


Loathe it:  Family Guy – that little baby makes me angry.


Love it:  All Angels – I don’t think I’ve heard anything of theirs

that I don’t like.

Loathe it:  Screaming music – I know there is a genre title but

seriously they just scream you can’t hear the lyrics or enjoy the music

because they’re screaming!


Love it:  My iPhone – I’m addicted to being able to check

everything always.

    I love love LOVE that green nail polish! So chic =) Please check out my beauty blog as well ^__^

  3. I loathe Dove products too! I’m a fan of The Body Shop scrubby gloves over loofahs. If you really want a good clean, they are the be all and end all in exfoliation. 🙂
