changing my review of this a bit: i received this as a sample with a beautyhabit.com order, and although i liked it at first, i'm not so wild about it now. i generally like coconut and gardenia scents, but this one comes off as too plain and flat. it would be great as an air freshner, but not as an edt.

recently ordered this from beautyhabit.com. absolutely love the tin it comes in, the subtle rose scent, and the way it keeps my lips feeling soft. one of the best lip balms i've ever tried.
Treatments -Sally Hansen - Problem Cuticle Remover

this was an impulse purchase at walgreens, and i'm glad that i bought it. this stuff really works! i left the gel on my cuticles for about 5 minutes, used an orange stick to push back my cuticles, soaked my hands in warm, soapy water for a minute or two, and my nails look great. a must-have for any at home manicure routine.
Eye Shadow -Urban Decay - Polyester Bride eyeshadow

a good highlighter, but not much else. i don't really have many uses for a white shadow, so i would not purchase this again.
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Feria Color Moisturizing Treatment.

love this stuff! although i do not like feria brand hair color (very difficult to wash out, dries out my hair more than other brands), i do love this conditioner and have been using it on and off for a couple of years. for the price, you can't beat feria conditioner - it works as a great deep moisturizing treatment and doesn't weigh down my hair. available at sally beauty supply stores.
i really had high hopes for this bath bomb after trying (and loving) the butterball bomb, but this just didn't work for me. i found the patchouli smell to be overpowering (i smelled like a big stick of incense after bathing in this - not a good thing), and it left a messy ring around my tub. i will continue to try new lush bath bombs, but would not repurchase this one again.
this is a must-try for anyone who is as addicted to baths as i am! lush bath bombs are simply the best. the cocoa butter in the butterball bath bombs made my skin feel softer than it has ever felt from a bath product -- after using this in the bath, i sometimes apply palmer's cocoa butter lotion for super soft skin. lush bath bombs are truly an affordable luxury that i will repurchase over and over.
i found that this shampoo was too harsh and dried out my hair. imo, terax latte is a much better clarifying shampoo and never dries out my dyed hair.
an incredibly soft brush that applies powder blush very smoothly and evenly. i have been using this for about a week and have not detected any shedding. so far i have been very happy with the two urban decay brushes that i have, the lip brush and the blush brush.
i much prefer opi's nail polishes over mac's. opi has a much larger variety of shades to choose from (sorry mac, but i don't think that bright orange nails would really fly at my office), lasts longer, and is much cheaper.
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

hmm...i wanted to like this, but it just doesn't work as well for me as my beloved oil of olay daily facials. i liked the pump dispenser, but there was nothing extraordinary about this product, and it made my combo skin feel a bit dry & tight after a week of using it. i guess this is what i get for cheating on my oil of olay daily facials ;)
Eyes -BeneFit Cosmetics - She Laq ] [DISCONTINUED]

i thought this was ok for sealing eyeliner and mascara, but did not work at all for keeping my lipstick in place. since i almost never wear eyeliner and rarely wear mascara, i wouldn't repurchase this product again. i might recommend it for someone who wears both and wants to use a little something extra to keep their eye makeup in place throughout the day.
i blow dry my hair every day, and dye it every 4 to 6 weeks, so i am always willing to spend $$ on hair products that work. this is definitely one of them. just a tiny amount of this product gave my hair an amazing amount of shine. i would recommend it to anyone who frequently blow dries their hair. like other terax products, the smell doesn't do that much for me, but it fades quickly and i'm willing to put up with it if i can have fabulous hair :)
although i am not a big fan of the smell of this conditioner, i will continue to use it because it really works. i love using this in conjunction with the latte shampoo. leaves my hair shiny and soft.
this is a great, mild shampoo that has done wonders for my fine/color treated hair. i have been using this in conjunction with terax crema conditioner, and it leaves my hair feeling incredibly soft and shiny. great stuff.
