Sticky, heavy, does not moisturize or stay on long. Disappointing.

Rosebud Salve is a must have for me. I use it on my hands, elbows and lips. Smells wonderful, works great.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
makeupreview 4/3/2006 6:16:00 PM
This is the best cleanser I have ever used and I feel so fortunate to have found it. I have dry sensitive skin and it's very difficult for me to find a product that does not leave my skin feeling tight and uncomfortable. Purity is the answer! Even if I have to wash my face several times in a day, it never feels stripped, yet this product really gets skin clean. I have tried countless drug & department store brands of cleansers and this is by far the best one yet. I have been using Purity exclusively for over a year. This product also rinses exceptionally well. Highly recommended.
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Amazing Grace Bath, Shampoo & Shower Gel

Smells Amazing but does not do my hair any favors. It does not seem to lather well and oddly enough, doesn't rinse well either. I did use a sample bottle so maybe I got a bad batch. I really wanted to like this product because of the heavenly scent, but it just doesn't work for me.
Heavy, greasy and smells bad. It does soften, but that's a lot to get past for soft skin. I much prefer Smith's Rosebud Salve for hand softening.
Skincare - Face -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar Eye & Lip Cream

Love, love, love this stuff. I have extremely dry skin and this product really helps perk up my eye area. It takes 10 years off, easy. I use this everyday in combination with Hope in a Jar Moisturizer.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I was very surprised to find such mixed reviews for Hope in a Jar. I love this stuff. A little goes a long way so a jar will last a good 3 to 4 months. I have very dry skin and I love how my face seems to "drink" this moisturizer. It absorbs quickly and does not leave my skin oily or greasy. I also like the packaging, the jar allows every little bit to be scraped out before opening a new one.
I really like Aveda's Rosemary Mint Shampoo. Invigorating scent, cleans well without stripping. This has been my everyday shampoo now for months. Once a week or so I'll use Biolage Hydrating Shampoo as an alternate, but the Aveda works much better for my fine hair for everyday.
This product is ingenious. Absolutely love it! I do wish that it was offered in a narrower stick and the sharpener that comes with it isn't that reliable. However this product definitely does what it claims to do.
LOVE the Venom Glosses, especially the neutral beige. Shiny, delicious and long-lasting.
Lip gloss without the gloss. I have Nectar, it is velvety smooth and has a nice color, but almost no shine. Also the compact is very shallow and does not have an applicator. . .must use fingers or bring along a brush. Edit: when I first received this gloss I was disappointed in it's lack of gloss. However after using it for a while I have found it's the perfect understated color for little or no makeup days. This gloss is extremely nourishing to my lips, they have never been softer or looked as healthy. Even with packaging issues, I would repurchase.
Way too common of a scent...instantly recognizable, like Pine Sol or something that everyone just instantly knows. I'll be glad when this scent loses it's popularity.
One of the most delicious, intoxicating scents I have ever had the pleasure to be exposed to. Do not overdo this scent, it is very strong. In fact, there are days when I simply use the shower gel and just a bit of the lotion. I love this scent!
