I have the Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth in Wild Rose. There is also a Nature Fresh Scent and a Clinical Protection formula. Prices range from $3.89-$4.88 for the Ultimate and $7.99-$9.99 for the Clinical Protection. You can get it at any drug/super store.
This deodorant claims to help minimize the look and feel of underarm hair over time. It also has 24-hour wetness protection and says it does not leave white marks on clothing.
I used this product for over a month so I could really test it out for you all. The first week or so I did not see much of a difference in the hair. I was still shaving every other day or everyday. It did have awesome wetness protection and it lasted all day. I saw a few white marks but that was only when I wasn't really paying attention when putting my shirt on.
I normally don't like a stick (solid) deodorant. I have always used a gel or a cream deodorant. But I love this one! It went on so nicely and did not dry out my underarms like the gel. Mine tend to get pretty dry and itchy from shaving and being itchy under your arms is not cute! The Dove was totally moisturizing and I had no flaky skin!
So after using it after about 3 weeks I start noticing that it felt like I didn't need to shave. The hair was softer and not all prickly. It even seemed lighter, and believe me, I have some dark thick hair!
I have been shaving about every 2-3 days now. And I could even wait longer because people can't even see it since it got lighter. 2-3 days is much better than everyday! Shaving that much just dries out your skin and is a pain!
I definitely recommend Dove Visibly Smooth!

I also was thinking of starting like a sidebar on my page to refer other bloggers with links to their blogs. It could be an exchange for links to be on each others pages. What do you think?

Over the past few weeks I painted my nails and toes different colors instead of the usual matching them. You can mix and match your nails from your toes, as long as the colors compliment. Red is really the only color that does not look good with others on nails and toes. The key is to keep the shades the same- bright colors together and pale colors together. Here are some examples that I put together:
