Thanks for the tip on the Cetaphil - the local drugstore carries it so I can easily go check it out at lunch time today

That horse shampoo sounds good too - never would have thought of trying that. Although I do have hand lotion that was originally used to condition horses hooves before they discovered it help peoples hands too.

Yeah...the pet stuff:

"Mane & Tail" horse shampoo and conditioner. It is really great for "virgin" hair...but color treated or permed you may want to use something speicifically for that. You can get it at Big R, Tractor Supply Co., or wherever you can get horse supplies-even some beauty supply houses like Sally Beauty Supply carry it.

The animal stuff that is good for hand cream is called "Bag Balm" or "Udder Balm". It is to condition the udders or cows who are either milk cows, or who are nursing their calves. (Also good for nursing human mothers! ) My Wal-Mart actually carries with in the hand lotion department now.

The stuff I use is called Ecrynal (sp?) but I have used the bag balm before - it is pretty good stuff and reasonably priced.

I used to SWEAR by Oil of Olay products but then my skin started to become "allergic" to it. I now use a L'Oreal cleanser for dry skin, followed by moisturizer.

Aphil - I will have to try the moisturizer in the gloves trick. I have a dishwasher so I don't wash dishes much, but I do hands and knees deep cleaning of my kitchen floors once a month so I can try it then.

The most recent 'find' of mine is green powder. Yeah, I know.....

I had read that green-tiinted concealers and powders could balance a ruddy or reddish complexion. As I had aged, I was getting that old-lady ruddy- ness on the nose and inner cheeks, and sometimes all over. NOT rosacea, just over active capillaries. Looks like I've beem drinking all the time.

So I tried T. Le Clerc's face powder in Tilluel shade. A nice light almost seafoam green. Sounds scary huh? I was alwasy afraid to try this, as I thought I'd look like the Incredible Hulk or Frankenstein.

It was GREAT! Balanced out the red and made my skin look just even and nice. No overly greenish tones even in the direct daylight. I put more on the reddish areas, then buff just a tiny bit all over my face. NO more Bozo the clown cheeks!

I remembered another one that I love. The St. Ives Apricot Scrub. It's supposed to be for your face, but i find it a bit too harsh. However it's great as a body exfoliant.
The other thing I started using is a back brush as an all over scrubber for exfoliating and it acts kind of like a massage. It's very nice and revives my skin.
I also must say I never wear make up and never use any type of cleansers on my face and I never have any problems with breakouts at all. Not for everyone, I know, but it works for me. I do use toner once in a while, but mostly on those little allergy bumps you get on your arms and legs. Works good to clear them up.

If you want to find out the scoop on beauty products, I really recommend you check out the book "Don't Go To The Cosmetics Counter Without Me" by Paula Begoun. After reading that book I have never purchased beauty products the same and no longer waste money on products that don't work. I also use her skin care line and for the first time in my life do not break out every month and my skin looks SO much better. www.paulaschoice.com

OOh my fave subject (apart from food/films/music that is).

I love the baby oil stuff especially the baby oil gel in aloe vera or camomile. They ysed to one for mums to be that had rose and geranium in it but I can't find it now. Also love the Bodyshop butters - always loved Mango but now gone for Papaya, brazil nut and shea.

Re the after shower oil - I remember the Neutrogena one but also used Palmers cocoa butter one whcih gave a lovely shine to the skin.

re the green powder - I used to use a colour corrective cream but would not do so now because I sweat easily and there is nothing worse than your make up running if it exposes green cheeks! Yellow is supposed to work the same way. When I used the cream is showed a greyish cast to my skin. Anyway I am happy with just foundation now but if it works for you....

I too am very impressed with the Olay facial wipes that you wash with.

Another fave is the little tine of vaseline with aloe vera for the lips.

By the way - any bathers with very dry skin might like to put some epsom salts in the bath - gives you a very silky skin. Use it in a bowl when washing your feet to. Your feet will thank you afterwards!

Not impressed with many shampoos but Loreal Elvive (whatever it is called) the serum one in the orange bottle is very good. Even though my hair is usually oily, it gets a bit frizzy on sides and back. Also Silvikrin make a frizz free (Aloe vera) conditioner that is good for curly hair. It is a leave in one and makes curly hair less of a handful (UKers can find it in Superdrug. White bottle with green stopper).

That's it for now!

I love mark products, its a lil sister company of Avon. The packaging is convenient, pocket sized, and so original. I had to sign up to sell it just to buy it bc no one in my area sells it. But I don't sell, I just buy on discount You can oogle it at www.meetmark.com & Avon ladies can sell it.
~Also, I am addicted to Biolage hair products. The gelee & hair milk are the best. My hair is wavy & wild & I love the Neutrogena Triple Moisture deep recovery hair mask. It feels like buttah & my hair is sooo soft.
~Can't forget, Stila lip pots. The pots are so pretty and the shades of color are too. When I first got it, my boyfriend said "Your lips are nuclear!" I said what, he said they are glowing, its not natural. I'll take it as a compliment.

Unfortunately, they don't, and they don't ship their either, but I do. If there's something you'd like to try or order, I can personally ship it to you. I've got tons of samples I don't use bc I don't actively sell.
