This did smell somewhat true, I did like it even though I don't think I would purchase it again. The chocolate seemed more like an underscent to me, with the top note being the orange. Overall, it smelled good, but there are other chocolate scents which I prefer.
Lotions/ Creams -Scentual Pleasures - Pink Lemonade

I didn't enjoy this scent, hate to break the 100% on this one. The scent doesn't remind me of pink lemonade, I can't quite place it, but it smells very industrial, not clean, sweet or lemony as I had hoped.
Shampoo -Scentual Pleasures - Reconstructive Shampoo

Overall, I liked this shampoo, but not the scent. I purchased this in pink lemondade. The scent doesn't remind me of pink lemonade, I can't quite place it, but it smells very industrial, not clean, sweet or lemony as I had hoped. It's very strongly scented, I can still smell it even after using a dozen other products this morning. Which would be a good thing if I liked the scent. The texture is good though, and I like how it makes my hair feel. I don't think I would reorder it though.

I love this mascara. I have long curly lashes, so I just brush a bit of this stuff on for color and I am set. It's not an everyday mascara for me though cause it almost makes me look like I have falsies on.
Gels/Soaps -Amber's Daisy - Key west jojoba body wash

I like this body wash, it makes me think of washing with some lemon lime kool aid! Lathers well, rinses off cleanly. I probably won't repurchase as I prefer my bath products to be strongly scented and very thick, and this one wasn't. But the scent that was there is nice and tangy and a bit sweet.
Gels/Soaps -Amber's Daisy - Honey bee jojoba body wash

I was very disappointed with this product. I'm looking for a wash to replace Lush's Never 2 busy to be beautiful bath gel and hoped this may be it. No way, this is a bit too thin for me, and the scent is almost so faint as to be undetectable. I will use this up but won't repurchase.
This shampoo's scent really disappointed me. I was expecting a dreamsicle scent obviously, something that was a creamy blend of vanilla and orange. This was not that. I am not sure how to describe it, if it was more heavily scented I might be able to make an attempt at it. I would not repurchase. I awarded 3 lippies because it did get my hair clean and didn't make it dry. However, it didn't perform better than drugstore shampoos, and didn't smell better either, so why wait 1 month for delivery for it?
Lotions/ Creams -Brown Bag Bath & Beauty - Cocoa-Licious lotion
natalielane 10/16/2003 3:08:00 PM
I received a generous sample of this in a swap with my fav mua'er. It was in the almond honey scent, and it went very well with the cocoa butter scent, great marriage. It seems very rich, I am keeping it at work to use as a hand cream on days that my lighter work lotion isn't enough. I would purchase this for myself for sure.
This is one of the top 3 Lush shower gels for me, well 4 I guess, my other faves are Never B too busy, Tramp and Narcotik. I love this gel for after working out, I keep it in my gym bag. It's true that it doesn't lather up a whole lot unless you use a puff, which makes it perfect for quick rinse off at the gym. It tingles on the skin a bit so be careful how much you use for "sensitive" areas. I can usually smell it on my skin for hours afterwards, and as mentioned, the minty smells turns quite herbal and relaxing.
This is a fantastic product for my skin. I love the tingle, the tightening, the greenness and the smell. I am not a stickler for how long I put it on, it just depends on what I am doing at the time. I use this about 3-4 times per week and there is no where I can repurchase here, but generous Mua'ers keep doing CP's for me. This product is now a staple in my skincare regimen. Skin type- very oily, prone to breakouts, mature.
This is a strongly scented product but I love it! It smells like you could eat it, delicious!
Lotions/ Creams -Sephora - Girl Body Lotion-Chocolate mint
natalielane 9/9/2003 8:20:00 PM
This was only $8. I was not expecting to really like it much. I don't use body lotions or creams everyday even though I should I hate feeling goopy. Just learning now to tolerate having hand cream on so my cuticles don't bleed all winter. This lotion is very light, and it smooths over the skin quickly and easily. It has quite a strong scent of chocolate mint, more minty than chocolately, and I love it. It soaks right in and doesn't leave me feeling greasy. If you like heavier body balms then this might not be the product for you.
Fragrances -Comptoir Sud Pacifique - Vanille Banane
natalielane 9/9/2003 8:16:00 PM
I purchased 2 sample vials of this for $7 from a Mua'er. It's very nice, esp the top note of banana. After a while the vanilla takes over and no banana remains. It doesn't last long and fades quickly overall. I like things mildly scented, so I would purchase this. But for how often I use fragrance, it probably would be worth it for me to just purchase samples.
I bought this in the powder puff $25, and a bunch of bath tablets $1 each. It's mild and smells good enough to eat. I would like to get the body balm as well.
