I love this scent! This is a milky, buttery vanilla with a faint honey note to it, just lovely. I don't like it quite as much as warm vanilla sugar, but close. F.Y.I., it smells nothing like real, unprosessed shea butter, thank goodness! For those of you that might have smelled natural shea that has not been prosessed and been alarmed that bbw has lost there mind and produced a scent that actually smells like shea butter! lol!
This is a great mascara! It thickened and lengthened my lashes somewhat and left them soft, though it didn't seperate define or "feather" my lashes as much as I like, the almay insider mascara is better for that, but this is still a fantastic mascara. I have the black and I agree with a previous reviewer, it is the richest, darkest, juicest most gorgeous black I've ever seen, that's definitly my favorite thing about this mascara, the color is just stunning. Also, I really like the silver and white packaging, it's so modern and chic, I just love it.
Lip Gloss -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lipgloss in First Blush [DISCONTINUED]
zoegirl1987 3/6/2003 10:43:00 PM
I love the moistureshine glosses to death, best lipglosses known to woman, I just adore them! It's a really nice fresh, bright color. On me it's very YLBB and totally brightens up my face.
Gorgeous color, quite pigmented for a colourjuice, and like all colourjuices it lasts and lasts, just an fantabulous lipgloss!!! So sad that it's limited edition. EDIT to say that I've found a similiar color, Revlon Super Lustrous in Nude Lustre. Not identical but similiar and gives a very similiar effect on the lips, or on my lips anyway.
Ugh, I bought this expecting a sheer pink and yummy flavor what I got was opaque pale pink lips(at least they were shiny, I'll give it that) and a totally rancid vanilla smell, I ADORE vanilla but this vanilla is just NASTY.
THIS IS MY HOLY GRAIL MASCARA!!! It is the best! It thickens and lengthens slightly, seperates perfectly, doesn't smudge and even holds a curl on my stubborn very difficult to curl lashes, all while leaving my lashes soft.
I adore this lipgloss! I have a dozen so far and I love them all! Beautiful glossy shine, great rasberry candy scent, long lasting and pretty colors. I like the packaging a lot too, it does require the use of a lip brush or your finger to apply but that doesn't bother me too much. My only complaint is some of these need more pigment but other the that I just love these lipglosses and think that they are must buys!
Fairly good price for a nice amount of product(8oz), leaves my curls shiny and soft with a light hold, this is my favorite styling cream, two thumbs up! Very nice scent.
Moisturizers -Almay - Milk Plus Moisture Lotion SPF 15

I adore this moisturizer, It is my holy grail! Leaves skin luminous, soft, just gorgeous! Just remember, this moisturizer is for "normal to oily", not "oily" skin, it will probably be to greasy on Oily" skin types.Plus the bottle is way cute and it's got spf and is fragrance free. Almay is a great comp[any and their line of "milk" skincare is superb. Just a note, unscented means they put a "masking frangrance" to mask the fragrance caused by the ingrediants in the product, fragrance free has no fragrance of any kind so yea, this smells faintly but thats just the scent of the ingrediants in the product.
Gels/Soaps -St. Ives - Vanilla & Vitamin E Moisturizing Body Wash

This is a truly great body wash. Smells fantastic, great moisturization, easy to find, good sized bottle and super cheap, I paid around $4 for 16oz. of this stuff, I've had my first bottle for over 4 months now and I still have at least one months worth left of product in it, this is the best body wash!
Styling Products -L'Oreal - Curl Vive Curl-shaping spray gel

First the merits of this product: It smells good, has a nice strong hold and isn't real sticky. Now for the gripes: It's way to stiff, gave me the total "plastered down wet look" , not my thing. Also you have to use soooo much product to get it to do anything. Won't purchase this product again but I'll finish the bottle I have.
Oh! I just adore this lipsmacker! The yummiest vanilla scent with a creamy, moisturizing texture(less waxy then most other smackers, I think) a a clear, subtle shine. This is great alone as well as under lipsticks and glosses, to make them go on smoother. All in all one of the best lipsmackers ever, I think.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Vanilla Bean lotion
zoegirl1987 1/10/2003 11:48:00 PM
Yummy yummy vanila scent, not as complex as the warm vanilla sugar(which has sandalwood and coconut tones as well as vanilla), just a nice, basic vanilla, not to sweet either, just perfect, I just wish it hadn't been discontinued. I love WVS but I wish I could still get vanilla bean cuz it's good for certain times/moods/occasions when I'm not in the mood for WVS. And I heard on here vanilla bean noel is similar to vanilla bean, it doesn't come CLOSE. :(
Treatments -L'Oreal - Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture Hair Treatment
zoegirl1987 1/6/2003 2:27:00 AM
After using this I have cashmere hair! I love it! My hair is SOOOO soft! I slather it on, put on a shower cap, wait about an hour, rinse, and have the most silky soft curls, I love it! I don't see isopropyl alcohol listed on the back of the conditioner, perhaps they removed it from the formulation?
I LOVE this cleanser! The cleanser contained inside these clothes is absolutly amazing! I use these at night and cetaphil in the morning and my skin looks wonderful, when I stop using these my skin will not look half so great! To make it more ecanomical I buy the 3 pack at costco for $12(2 refills and 1 tub filled with clothes-90 clothes in all.) and cut each cloth in half, the $12 dollar package lasts 6 months, so really, it isn't a bad deal at all!
