I love the colors in this palette. Very warm and natural. The blush is so natural it does not look like you are wearing makeup exactly, same with the lighter (light taupe) eyeshadows. My only complaint is that after about 8 months, the "CD lid" snapped off (gimmicky packaging), so now it's kind of a mess to deal with. No biggie.
This is a great little hair mask. My hair is very shiny and light-feeling. A nice complement to their shampoo (I used the dry hair shampoo and followed up with the mask). Watch your weekly circulars for $1 off coupons - I picked mine up for $1.99 net.
I did not care for this (above-average priced) anti-perspirant. It smells lovely and feels nice going on, but it did not stop wetness! I have no similar issue with Lady speed stick or teen speed stick or whatever so I discarded it and definitely would NOT repurchase.
OK, the packaging stinks and the price is a lil high. But this gives you the prettiest look, it really works like they say! I subbed this for regular powder after my makeup and have been very happy with the results. It makes me look ... healthier. Sometimes esp in the mornings I can look just deadly. LOL
This is a good product. As another reviewer stated, I guess it does similar things as any other white or light pink pencil would do, but there is NO PULLING with this one, it glides gently over the skin. I also use it as a highlighter on other parts of the face as well. Very nice.

I liked this. It made my hair piecey and emphasized the wave into a ringlet-type of thing. It was also very cheap since I bought it on sale and with a coupon, and the packaging is both cute and easy to handle. Would repurchase. Smells good too. EDITED 3-9-05 - Still love this. Also recommend the Extra Strong as opposed to the regular - at first I didn't even realize there were two versions and the Extra is far superior imo.
This is interesting stuff. It could gross a lot of people out but as long as you don't mind a lil mess it's OK. You put some of this solid in your hand and wet it with water to make it mask-texture, then rub all over your face, then rinse. It makes my skin feel great and it seems clear (been a week). And another thing - it's really more of a mini-mask or treatment than a cleanser, I think Lush should not market it as a cleanser although they do. I would not use this to take off my makeup - I do that with another cleanser. IT leaves a coating on your face, which is cool, but not until you are sure it's free of makeup.
I love this! It claims to be chocolate-scented, I found it to be reminiscent of warm brown sugar-type scents. Lovely warm smell. Of course, the bubbling action is unparalleled since it is a LUSH bubble bar. I used barely a third and the tub was overflowing. Even at that rate, the cost is still about $1-2 per bath but well worth it for a bath fiend like me. Would repurchase. Supposedly it's limited edition though.
Oh goodness. I received a sample of this during my last visit to a store. I didn't particularly care for it. First off, it releases a dark color upon use, which washes down the drain but still. It creeped me out a little. I'm not sure what the scent is supposed to be for this but I found it to be warm, almost berry-ish (I think there's some grape in the soap) and I didn't really care for it. Not terrible, but not good imo.
Lush claims this soap smells "of bananas." I find it to be very pleasant smelling but I'm not so sure about the banana part. However, it does smell similar to King of Skin which also has banana in it. It's nice smelling and I like the way my hands felt after I used it. Thumbs up.

The scent of this did not work with my skin. I found this to be a bit cloying and heavy/powdery.

This stuff smells almost identical to the DKNY perfume for women (the one in the white frosted glass tall bottle) - it is really a great deal. It foams up nicely in the bath too. I would describe the scent as a greeny grapefruit citrus smell. I should also note that I picked this up for less than 50 cents at Shoprite (sale plus coupon). :)
The scent of this is fantastic - lavender with some kind of kick. I found the scent kind of incongruous to the color though - it's flourescent. Love the scent, love the bubbles, got three to four uses per bar. Still kind of expensive for me though which is why it gets the less than perfect rating. Very relaxing and perfect for before bed.
Double bubble is great - it's the scent of Fairy Jasmine bath bomb. It has some glitter in it but it didn't stick, it seemed that the bar was rolled in it rather than it being all throughout. Whatever, I don't care about the glitter. Nice bubbles, great scent, I love it. I got three uses out of one bar but it is still expensive - about $1.50-1.75 USD per bath. UPDATED: just repurchased two more of these, love them. THe jasmine scent is heavenly and I love the sparkles.
I received a sample of this from Sephora. The first time I smelled it I wasn't a fan at all. I put it on and it is wonderful. Sweet vanilla / cotton candy, long lasting. Changes over time to resemble more of a warm vanilla with a lot of the super-sweet notes dropping out. My fiance loves this one too. It is a very feminine, "girly" fragrance. EDITED TO ADD - I should have mentioned that I do not normally wear foody scents and I still love this.
