Whose idea was it to put turmeric in this bath bomb? Thanks to that yellow herb, my whole tub turned yellow. So did my towell! Not my idea of a great bath. Did nothing to soften my skin. Bad experience.
Lip Treatments -Blue-Q - Miso Pretty blossoming cherry lip flavour special recipe

cute package but dries out my lips terribly. I don't care how cheap something is, if it ruins my lips, I'm not gonna use it.
Concealers -Sephora - Cooling Cover Stick in Clair 01
amybean 9/11/2005 8:35:00 PM
I have this in green, which I need to cover my forever rosy nose. I like that it sort of dries on my face, unlike Physician's formula, which is smeary and never quite dries. As for the cooling sensation, I can't really feel it on my nose. But like all makeup, it tends to be gone halfway through the day.
I haven't noticed this eye cream being greasy, but I haven't noticed it doing much of anything. And I've been using it faithfully every day for about 6 months now. I bought it instead of the Korres firming eye cream because I couldn't afford the Korres price tag, but I'm thinking about paying the extra cash for eye cream that actually firms.
Like the reviewer before me, I bought the "waterproof" kind in brown... and just like her, it was all over my face no matter what I did to try and keep it on my eyelashes! So sad! Because when I first put it on in the morning, it it beautiful and non-clumpy the way I have never seen mascara be beautiful and non-clumpy. but it's too good to be true. I have also never seen mascara smear so much in my whole life.
Believe it or not, I found my tube of Twinkle on the street in NYC. Maybe other people wouldn't use it... but I don't have too many germ hang-ups, and I was thrilled to make the score. I am a redhead with unpigmented lips, and normally a color like this would make me look like an 80s pop star (as in, NOT good). However, if I apply just a weensy bit over my lovely apricot-colored Sephora stain, it creates the lovliest lips EVER. But it dries out my lips, so only three lippies.
Lip Treatments -The Body Shop - Coconut Lip Butter

Even though I love the coconutty smell of this product, it dries out my lips horribly. I get brittle bits of lip-skin peeling off of my lips if I use it. Bad News!
Wow, as a connosieur of lip stain I am VERY impressed with this product! I bought it in apriciot, and the stain stays on my lips ALL DAY LONG! I also put some on my cheeks so that it matches.
I don't understand the applicator wand, it has all these weird angles on it and makes the stuff impossible to apply. I brought it back to Sephora after using it for 2 days, and exchanged it for Definicils, which, while hardly miraculous, at least has a normal applicator.
After a few days of using this stuff am & pm, my friends commented, "your skin is just glowing!" I haven't noticed a difference, but I will take their word for it. The only drawback is the ugly bottle.
After smelling this on a German friend of mine, I couldn't get it off my mind... had to have it brought to me from Europe! It's a terribly ugly, plain bottle, but the scent is just about perfect.
Although I'm not crazy about the tingle (can all this spiciness really be GOOD for your lips?), this is undoubtedly the longest-lasting lip gloss I've ever used. Your lips stay shiny up to 3 hours!!!! unheard of!!!! I think that the spiciness makes it last longer. Anyway, buttercup is a lovely color, and I like the name.
Skincare - Face -Fresh - Umbrian Clay Face Treatment
amybean 4/4/2005 11:39:00 PM
I am not crazy about this product as a mask or a cleanser... I bought it because I really love Fresh milk lotion that contains umbrian clay, but I couldn't find it (maybe it's discontinued?) Anyway... I figured since Fresh adds umbrian clay to all of their makeup and lotion, why shouldn't I? I mix a little bit of this face mask with my lotion (Oil of Olay) in the palm of my hand, and it makes the lotion perfectly mattifying when I put it on-- a great makeup base that stays matte for a pretty long time. And what a beautiful smooth feel! I think I have stumbled upon my HG makeup base... and it's a whole lot cheaper than Fresh's face lotion (which is $45 an ounce!)
Why is it that only the stinky fragrances stick to my skin? If you want to know what this one smells like, it smells EXACTLY like Kenzo Flower. Same horrendous powdery somethin' or other. I will never go near this bottle again.
The best hair product I have ever used. I put it on my very-processed hair after it is dry, and suddenly it goes from crispy to luxuriously smooth.
