Got this in the butter and love it! Very true grapefruit scent with a nice,soft vanilla note. The butter is very thick and moisturizing and the scent lasts forever.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Cranberry Body Butter
kmarie 11/22/2003 5:27:00 PM
LOVE this butter! The scent is wonderful,very true cranberry scent to my sniffer and stays the same scent on me as in the tub. This seems to be more moisturizing than the other butters so I put it on before I put on my flannel p.j's and in the morning my skin feels great and the scent lasts and lasts. Will be buying more for sure.
Lotions/ Creams -A Zaftig Woman - Mayan Gold Shea Cream
kmarie 11/22/2003 4:26:00 PM
This scent just wasn't for me. It's very true to the scent description of patchouli,citrus and floral. The shea cream itself is wonderful,very moisturizing and absorbs well. I'm sure if you enjoy warm,exotic scents you'll like this alot.
My Grandmother used to make homemade cinnamon applesauce every year and this is it! Just like all other LOL tarts this scent has great throw and is very long lasting.
OMG! Fabulous,true scent! Mostly caramel but the tart apple also comes through. I was melting one last Sunday morning and the smell woke my son up,he came downstairs to see what I was cooking! Disappointing for him but a great review for the strength and "trueness" of LOL tarts :)
Lotions/ Creams -Laughing Out Loud - Tomato Leaf Lotion
kmarie 11/7/2003 2:19:00 PM
This is the truest tomato leaf scent ever! You would swear you had just picked a leaf off the plant and crushed it in your hand. The lotion itself is very light,absorbs quickly,and the scent has great staying power. It's not rich enough,for me,for cold weather but is a summer staple. The tarts in this scent are also excellent.
This a great strong mixed spice scent but not in a foody way. Perfect for fall/winter. I easily go through 3 tealights per tart without any loss of scent strength or throw. My husband and son like this one alot which is unusual!
Cleansers -L'Oreal - Ideal Balance Foaming Gel Cleanser

I've been loyal and satisfied with Lancome's gel clarte for about a year but got tired of running to the mall or trying to swap for the GWPs every time I was getting low. I saw this last time I was at the drugstore and figured at $6.99 even if it didn't work I wasn't out that much. Well,this works just as well as the gel clarte at a fraction of the price! I didn't notice the slightest bit of difference in my skin and the packaging is sooo much better,no more leaks. If you're looking to try a new cleanser I highly recommend you try this.
Lip Treatments -Paula's Choice - Exfoliating Treatment

Love this stuff! After a bad experience with Perricone lip plumper this got my poor,dried out lips back into great shape after just a couple of uses. The tub packaging is great-no spills or mess-and you only need to apply such a tiny amount I bet this will last forever! I will,eventually,be buying again.
O.K.,the tube is the pits! I lost alot of product the first time I used it. The treatment itself is great! I'm in my mid 40's(gasp!)and I have noticed a definite improvement in my entire lip area. Better color,plumper,and the fine lines have really decreased. 10/30/03 I have to edit. This really does all the things I originally posted but over time this really,really dried out my lips. Will not be buying again.
Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion
kmarie 10/21/2003 12:26:00 PM
I just bought the cocoa butter cream in a big 15 oz. tub. It is wonderful! Extremely moisturizing,absorbs fairly quickly considering the consistency is more of a butter,great coconut scent. I will be buying this again.
This is my favorite fall scent. Very warm and spicey. Strong,long lasting,great throw.
I have thick, curly hair and I really like this product. I rake it through my dry hair with my fingers on non shampoo days and it really helps define the curls and adds softness,shine,and a great scent. It is pricey but you only need to use a very small amount so one bottle lasts forever.
This is the only foundation I will ever use! Shade selection is an exact match,goes on smoothly,covers just enough,mattifies beautifully,controls oil. This foundation,along with the gel clarte cleanser,has made a big difference in my complexion. Love it!
Styling Products -Redken - In the Loop Curl Booster
kmarie 9/3/2003 5:29:00 PM
I'm thick,dry and curly and I mainly use this on very humid days as it weighs my hair down just enough. It doesn't have a strong odor and is a nice consistency. I will buy this again.
