Skincare - Body -Bath and Body Works - Rice Flower and Shea (all)

Yes! This scent is totally amazing! I have been going to B&BW for a long time, & I haven't been so in love with a scent since Butter Cookie! Butter cookie can be overly sweet tho (especially in the summer), so this is the perfect scent for anytime of year! Like this previous reviewer said it is like a subtle buttery vanilla with something "green"-wheat, grass lightly mixed in. The great thing about it is that everyone finds something to love in this scent. I love the buttery part, others love the sweet part, or the vanilla or the rice flower. I have purchased it in the body cream, body lotion, body splash (regular & purely silk), salt scrub (fantastic), & creamy body wash. My fav is the PS Body Splash, but since I'm already on my second bottle of that (and I've been rationing it) I started using the reg body splashes too, since they're cheaper. I have to smell this AT LEAST once a day if not more!!! (more like a dozen times!) The BEST ever! (Can you tell I like it?)
I got this product on a whim because it was on clearance. I like cream shadows and I usually use Revlon Illuminance even tho it does tend to crease. This is now my HG shadow! I have it in every color it came in, but I prefer the two silvery colors, "Diamonds are Forever" (the best) & "From Russia With Love". If only it came in a bunch of colors, I would be set for life! It's started me on a mad rampage to find something that can compare. It gives wonderful shimmery color, wh. is buildable. It can be applied very sheerly or built up by allowing each layer to dry before adding another. Super easy to apply, finger tip application, great for the inner corner, never ever creases! Easier to use than Maybelline cool effects because its not so watery (its like the consistency of a good eye cream) and it has this pointed tip which dispenses a very precise amount (no waste ever). I wish Revlon would add a version of this to their permanent collection!!!

The absolute best! I am an enthusiast of this scent and since it has been introduced have bought it in the body cream, body lotion, body splash (regular & silk--silk smells better), salt scrub (a must!), creamy body wash & moisture-rich bar soap. I find it very unique as it's not precisely foody, not precisely floral, not precisely green. I don't think it smells like playdoh at all, but I don't really think playdoh smells awful either. I just think it smells really buttery & delicious with a subtle sweetness--like a poundcake fresh from the oven...yum!
Foundations -Sally Hansen - Fast and Flawless Airbrush foundation [DISCONTINUED]

After reading the reviews here, I was absolutely ready for this to completely suck--but it doesn't! It's actually pretty cool. I have it in "No Color". It's sheer coverage, great for summer. If you're not a klutz, just ignore the instructions & spray directly on face (carefully & on open areas like cheeks & chin). 4 or 5 quick squirts, a little blending & you're done! That's the best thing about this stuff-it's really fast. If you spend about 5+ minutes trying to get your foundation out of the bottle & blend, get this, cuz it's real timesaver! It takes a minute or less. The smell everyone's talking about isn't bad, it's kind of herbal minty, a little like noxzema, & it fades so quick, so it doesn't bother me. Got it for free too.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Rice Flower and Shea Body Lotion

Now officially my favorite Bath & body scent ever, even surpassing my beloved butter cookie! this stuff is divine & the lotion is ultra moisturizing--I'm now sure it's way more moisturizing than the other moisture-rich body lotion. Will make your skin feel absolutely silky into the next day. The scent--super creamy, buttery and not too sweet. Never overwhelming, always indulgent. So good, it's sure to be targeted for discontinuation.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - Purely Silk Salt Scrub in Rice Flower and Shea
amiehder 5/8/2003 2:03:00 PM
I love this one too! It is so much softer than the aromatherapy sugar scrubs & this one smells divine! It smells slightly different than the lotion. I can smell the salt and to me the scrub smells like hot buttered popcorn with condensed milk over it, not that I'd eat that, but the aroma is intoxicating. i'm on my 2nd jar. total raves for this product! It leaves you very moisturized as well. The only disadvantage is that if you have cuts on your hands it stings like the dickens, but, duh, it's salt.
So refreshing!!! for me this scent is energy in a bottle--a real pick-me-up! At first, I wasn't into it, but the more you smell this scent, the more you want to smell it! Got a whole bunch at drugstore.com for $7 before they quit carrying it, so I won't repurchase for a while, but it's a definite "do" as far as Demeters go! Plus because of the mint, it has this cool tingly feeling when you spray it on your neck! Doesn't last too long but that's not really a surprise with the PMU's. My SO also likes!!
Misc Beauty Tools -Bath and Body Works - True Blue Spa Gloves
amiehder 4/9/2003 4:36:00 AM
Definitely a must! I also wash my hands about a zillion times a day & 20 minutes with these are the only thing that saves them! Super convienient & you can type while wearing them (as i am now)! Plus half price with coupons!
I love my Bloom Shimmer Stick in glow. It's perfect for highlighting browbones and looks great in the inside corner of the eyes (reflects light). I probably wouldn't pay $30 for it, I got mine on Ebay for $10, but it does last an incredibly long time!!! Great product, it's just like Nars The Multiple except it's true there are only three shades, but Glow's all I need!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Rice Flower and Shea Body Lotion
amiehder 2/18/2003 1:06:00 PM
This is the best scent they currently offer (outside the aromatherapy, which I also like); it's quite light, it smells like cream, butter & vanilla with a slight green note. The smell dissipates within 5 or 10 minutes of putting it on, wh. I actually like. It's sort of like butter cookie, but w/o cinnamon & not nearly as sweet. I picked four full sized bottles, wh. just came out yesterday. It moisturizes well too, I only hope this scent sticks around longer than most. I love its natural scent!
The absolute best! I used to like the Body Shop before BBW hugely expanded their product line. They always have great sales, coupons, and clearance. I usually get the stuff for between 50 & 80% off retail, so I think it's great to get luxurious feeling & smelling skin care for drugstore prices. I love their aromatherapy products, their candles, wallflowers (so much better looking than Glade) and the AB moisturizing hand soap. And of course the greatest scent ever--Butter Cookie! Delish!
This is my new favorite in the aromatherapy line; it was grapefruit peppermint (wh. I still love in the sugar scrub), but I sometimes find it to be overly sweet, like candy. Bergamot coriander is a lovely scent that gets more refreshing and energizing each time you apply it. My hubbie loves it too, says I smell fresh! I use the body oil on my scalp as pre-shampoo treatment--great!
This is my & my hubbie's favorite scent ever. I don't even like floral in general, but this one has nice citrus notes--it just smells clean--like just stepping out of the shower. Very classy. Cool package as well.
Fragrances -Demeter - Sugar Cookie Pick Me Up Spray
amiehder 12/29/2002 6:10:00 AM
I love it--it's the next best thing to B&BW Butter Cookie, especially since they never made a body spray of it. Has a cookie dough scent as well as sweet. My hubbie likes that I smell like a cookie!
Great product (smells divine) and about $5 at marshall's when they got 'em~
