Masks -Burt's Bees - Green Goddess Herbal Spa Clay Mask [DISCONTINUED]
pdlsprite 4/2/2003 9:26:00 PM
It was very pleasant going on, and felt good, but I can't say that it did anything for my skin.
What else can i say but smells great, lathers well, and leaves me squeaky clean. Boyfriend likes it too, and actually asked when I was going to get some more *gasp*
I used this as a shampoo a few times, and it was ok. But I'm giving this four lippies because it smells so wonderful, and works as an excellant bar soap. I can't wait to repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Carrot Nutritive Body Lotion
pdlsprite 4/2/2003 9:23:00 PM
Didn't smell good, didn't sink in very well, and wasn't moisterizing at all. Also, very waxy. I won't repurchase.
This product smells wonderful, like a spicey orange baked product. It's a little grainey going on, but really does exfoliate and leaves your face soft and fragrant. This product is really great paired with the orange cleanser, and I use both while in the shower. I would repurchase this. The only drawback is, I'd love to see this in a tube, not a jar.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

I already have a fantastic face wash, but I tried this out, and really liked it. The smell is great, and it goes on like DHC's deep oil cleanser. Goes on oily, washes off without a redidue. I reccomend this product to people with normal to dry complexions.
Moisturizers -Burt's Bees - Carrot Nutritive Day Creme
pdlsprite 4/2/2003 9:15:00 PM
This was a very waxy cream! The smell was not pleasant at all, and it really didn't do anything for my face, even moisterize it. It's very hard to evenly spread liquid foundation over this creme. All around yuck.
This just isn't a very good hand salve. It doesn't moisterize my hands, actually gives them an unpleasant greasy feel. The smell is too medicinal. If you're looking for an inexpensive drug store hand salve, I'd suggest Corn Huskers lotion.
Treatments -Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

This isn't a bad cuticle cream. The smell is grrreat, and it does seem to moisterize. But, it doesn't come close to my Body Shop Vitamin E Cuticle Stick, so I won't repurchase. Also, the tub is a little messy, I'd prefer this in a stick.
Eye Shadow -Hard Candy - eyeshadow quartet "hypnotic"
pdlsprite 3/31/2003 11:56:00 PM
This is a very cute compact quartet, with eyeshadows in peach, silver, purple, and dark purplish black. It took me a while to get the hang of applying these together, but once I did, it gave me a very nice smokey night out look. But I don't really use the darkest color for anything more than a faint line above my eyeliner, and the purplish e/s really isn't my style, so I don't think I'll repurchase. I can get the same smokey look from my other eyeshadows in mauve, brown, and dark brown.
I recieved this as a swap extra, and I love it! The smell is a very pleasant orange, like a vitaminC tablet(the b/f actually commented on the smell, and that almost never happens)! I have combo skin, a bit dry during the night, oily t-zones during the day, and this light moisterizing, non greasy formula has worked perfectly on me. I use it at night, and during the day, and my skin actually feels healthier. I have this in a tester, and can't wait to buy the full size.
This is a fantastic product for dandruff! Mine, and my b/f's hair is shiny, full, and healthy. This was bought for my b/f, who has bad dandruff, but I also use it once a week to keep my scalp healthy. The addition of tea tree oil makes my scalp tingle, and feels great. It's pretty expensive, but you only use a tiny bit, so a little goes a long way. I will repurchase, and I'm now going to try the rest of B&B's hair products.
Gels/Soaps -Origins - A Perfect World - Creamy Body Cleanser
pdlsprite 3/22/2003 1:10:00 PM
This was the first "creamy" body cleanser I've tried, and I was very impressed! A little goes a long way, with plenty of rich lather. My skin didn't dry out, either. The smell is very nice, a light white tea scent. I would only ask that the scent be a little stronger, and last a little longer. I'll just go buy the lotion to go with it. This is a repurchase.
I'm only giving this four lippies because while great for my glosses and sheers, this is not so hot for my regular lipsticks. It's a little too creamy, and doesn't stay put as long. But I will repurchase for my BE baby gloss, and for my lancome juicy tube in cerise.
Treatments -The Body Shop - Vitamin E Cuticle Stick
pdlsprite 3/15/2003 4:29:00 AM
This is a fantastic cuticle moisterizer! I bought this for my b/f, who has horrible cuticles (you know how guys are), and saw an improvement in the look and feel immediately. So much, that I've started using it right after I get out of the shower every day. The smell is very pleasant, a light rosewater scent. I will repurchase.
