Absolutly useless product! Anything cold will depuff eyes...I'd rather use the cold spoon trick or a cold washcloth and spend the money on a good eyecream afterwards. These are pointless!

Yummm!! This smells just like my fave hair care line by Jean Marc Maniatis Spa Relax. It is such a comforting smell and light and airy. Thanks to Kai for the sample :)

I am in LOVE with this palette! The pinks are so amazing and everytime I put some pink on I pull out this palette and viola my whole face matches! lol The lipglosses are much more sheer than they look and everything goes perfectly together. Shadows last for quite awhile and the blush is very pretty! Buy one of these!!!!
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Urban Apothecary Rescue Balm
rosieee 8/18/2005 8:14:00 PM
This product is very similar to Darphins Purifying balm and contains the same types of ingredients. It is fabulous in the winter when skin becomes flaky and dry, this stuff heals it! You just need a tiny bit or your skin feels greasy...it smells fab too! Full of aromatherapy scents and oils...not too bad of a price either and lasts forever!
Yuck! It was harder to rinse this stuff off than it should have been and my face felt horrible afterwards. Tight and dry and didn't feel clean at all...and I have pretty normal skin. I will never use this again, though I do love the cleansing oil and the washing powder. This just wasn't for me.
"A modern floral, a citrus burst, and the warmth and sensuality of hawaiian tuberose." This fragrance smells great but is almost identical to (cheap!!)Coty Sand and Sable, with a tad more citrus. It's a very warm, sexy scent...I put some one before writing this review and I just can't stop smelling my wrist!!
Skincare - Body -Dr. Hauschka - Rosemary arm and leg toner
rosieee 8/16/2005 4:24:00 AM
I do love the smell of this product but have no clue as to what purpose it serves. It is kind of greasy for being a "toner"...here is was it is supposed to do: # Encourages warmth by improving circulation in the limbs. Wards off fatigue and keeps you on your toes. Cramps and muscle stiffness are prevented. # Reduces the appearance of varicose veins and cellulite. # Invigorates and energizes arms and legs before and after exercise. I wonder if long term use would help veins...it is very pricey at $30 for a 3 oz bottle and I can't see any reason to ever buy this again. Plus the packaging is horrible as the product just dribbles out all over.
Its weird because gardenia and jasmine are two scents I don't like on their own but I love this scent! It does smell like the beach and I smell coconut as well. Its very light and warm and yummy. The only drugstore perfume I own and it is dirt cheap.
Styling Products -Frederic Fekkai - Wave Creating Spray

This stuff is useless. You have to spray half the bottle on to be able to "crunch" your hair into waves and by then, it just looks dirty and nasty and feels dry. Get a perm like I did haha I love curly hair and wish I wasn't cursed with it being naturally straight.
Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer
rosieee 8/15/2005 2:58:00 AM
I FINALLY scored a sample of this stuff and wasn't super impressed. It is a nice moisturizer but not worth the price. I like to slather my moisturizer on and cover every inch without having to worry about the horrid cost. The one I use (NV perricone Vit C ester amine complex face lift with DMAE) is still $85 a bottle but its 2oz and lasts forever and sinks right in. If la mer was cheaper, I'd repurchase but overall, I could live without it. I'd still like to try the lighter moisturizer though and see how it is. Maybe when I get older than 22 and actually have a wrinkle or two that needs to be cleared up lol UPDATE*** After using this for a few days I started to break out on my chin and forehead...and I rarely break out, and never all at once. I guess I'm one of the people that can't use this stuff!
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types
rosieee 8/15/2005 2:52:00 AM
I like this moisturizer but will not use it due to the smell!!!! Bleecchhhh! I can smell it on my face for hours even over my makeup. And it's not lavendar, its more like bleach and chemicals and plastic. Yuck. But it does sink in nicely and makes skin look and feel nice.
Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Coconut Hut Hawaiian Icing Whipped Sugar Scrub
rosieee 8/15/2005 2:48:00 AM
Coconut Hut is the BEST etailer I have ever encountered. With others, I place huge orders and get dissapointed with the products and end up swapping everything away. But I don't dare get rid of anything coconut hut! I have this in pink grapefruit which is so tart and juicy smelling it makes your mouth water and I also have it in coconut cream, which is divine as well. They last forever, lather well, and keep your skin baby smooth. Most important of all, there is NO residue left behind. Lena also has the fastest shipping of any etailer and the cutest packaging. I"ve been waiting on an order from the body dessert shop for over 2 months now *rant* lol
I really can't stand the smell of this scent but I can't pick out why or what note it is. It's kind of a plasticy smell...I give it 1 lippie because I like the pretty pink color and the bottle is kind of pretty.
Space boy and pussy cat are pretty much the only two NPs that I wear anymore. I get so many compliments and one boyfriend would tell me everyday how much he loved the color of space boy (sparkling silver lots o glitter...it may be similar to trailer trash). They last forever without chipping but I only use them on my feet. I gave up fingernail polish ages ago because it chips and looks ugly the next day. 10 stars for these!!! I'm so glad HC brought them back as vintage. And how can you not love the cute matching rings?
This is a fabulous scrub! The particles are the consistency of sand but it is not abrasive. It is very thick and creamy and you can only feel the scrubby bits after you rub it on for a few seconds. Great new product!
