Misc Beauty Tools -Unlisted Brand - Salux Nylon Japanese Bath Towel

Even though I only used this 3-4 times a week it was just too much for my skin. While it did prevent ingrown hairs on the back of my legs, I believe it also caused me to get small red dots on my arms. The dots look like tiny broken blood vessels. Now, I did use a light touch with this cloth, I wasn't aggressive in scrubbing my skin or anything. I do think that this is an o.k. product, it's just not right for my skin.
Great lip balm. It has a bunch of wonderful ingredients like Q-10, vitamins, hyaluronic spheres and collagen. It has a wonderful fruity smell and makes my lips healthier.
This is an o.k. floral scent. It is a little to heavy for me though. When I first spray it I get a strong hit of peony, rose and lily. I don't get much fruit or musk from this scent at all. Even on the dry down it's still a very heavy floral. I like my scents to be more complex. With this one I feel like I have been beaten about the face with a flower shop. If you love florals this might be a good scent for you.

Wonderful body wash! It smells so yummy, like vanilla mixed with honey. It foams up very nicely when I use my shower poof. My skin is dry and sensitive and this leaves it soft, hydrated and happy. A def. repurchase.

While this does smell amazing, it left my skin very dry. It also gave me red itchy patches on my legs and shoulders.
This smells like summer in a bottle. When I first spray I get the scent of bright summertime fruit, then some light florals and upon dry down a sexy your-skin-but-better type of scent. Usually Philosophy scents have terrible staying power on me, but I can still smell this on my wrist some 5 hours after first spraying. I will repurchase.
Love this polish! I finally got my hands on a bottle after many trips to Ulta (it was always sold out). It's a wonderful light pink with glitter in it. The color is great on it's own, but equally as nice over another color or with OPI Shatter. When I am just using this color alone I apply at least two coats. Like the other reviewers noted this color can be a pain to remove, but it's worth it.
Shampoo -Silk Naturals - Coconut Argan Cleansing Conditioner

I really wanted to like this product. It left my hair limp and dry. I tried using less product, using more product, leaving it on for a longer period of time, then leaving it on a shorter period of time. I tried almost everything but it seems this product is just not for me. It does smell wonderful, tropical and fruity without being cloying. I even tried using it as a "regular" condioner and it still left my hair limp.
Lip Treatments -Silk Naturals - Brown Sugar & Vanilla Lip Scrub

This is perfect for scrubbing away all the dry, flakey skin on my lips. It comes in a pot with the cutest little scoop. You just scoop some out, apply to your lips then rub them together for a few seconds and then tissue off the remainder. You only need a little bit each time, so the pot last quite a while. After you finish scrubbing you apply lip balm and you have a super soft pucker.
Lotions/ Creams -Booths - Egyptian Argan Oil Body Butter

Wonderful body butter! This has a texture that is similar to thick frosting, but don't let that scare you. It speads easily and melts into the skin leaving your skin soooo soft. It's chock full of great ingredients like shea butter, argan oil and cocoa butter. My skin feels like velvet after I use this. I also love the scent, it's clean, fresh and a little sexy. I would love if they made a matching perfume. I would most def. repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Booths - 4-in-1 Multi-Action Body Lotion Vanilla Butter
pawnshop_rose 3/27/2011 8:16:00 PM
Love, Love, Love this lotion!!! First of all it smells fantastic. It smells almost like a more grown up version of Pink Sugar. Now, I hate the smell of Pink Sugar perfume, but I love the scent of this. Go figure. It keeps my skin glowy and moisturized. Also you get a great big bottle of the stuff for around $10 at Ulta. A def. repurchase.
When I first spray this on me I get a strong hit of the iced cherry note. Then it melows into a lovely light floral and upon drydown I get a musky vanilla. I like how the scent takes time to develop on your skin. I love the iced cherry note, it's very different and not too sweet. I will repurchase.
This lotion did not seem to moisturize my dry skin at all. It left behind a tacky residue and it seemed to dry out my skin in the long run. It also has a strong fake fruit note to it that is just gross smelling. I will not puchase again!
*EDIT* 04/16/11----- I am bumping this down to 1 lippie. With continued use this gave me a rash and some serious dry patches. ---I have this in the Renewing formula and I really like it. It softens my dry sensitive skin without breaking me out. My skin is brighter and the texture seems more refined. I love the scent, it's soft and clean.
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Dragon's Egg Bath Ballistic
pawnshop_rose 3/16/2011 8:23:00 AM
I bought this after seeing a video about it on the Lush site. When I first dropped it in the bath it started producing this lovely white, milky froth. It took a little while for the magic to happen. The ballistic started to turn in the water and multi-colored confetti started to come out as well as ribbons of orange followed by gold glitter. Now this ballistic turned the bath water the most gorgeous iridescent orange color, it looked almost luminescent. The Lush site says it smells like orange sherbet, but the one I received smelled more like bergamot and lemon. The glitter does stick to you once you exit the bath but it's nothing a qiuck rinse off can't take care of.
