The scent is very sweet - almost like a manufactured bubblegum or inexpensive candy. Sorry but I'm horrible at describing scents. Rock Star is not drying but it's not as moisturizing as Honey I Washed the Kids. Imo, Rock Star is a mediocre soap but since I love HIWTK, I will stick with the latter.
I bought this because of postive reviews on this site. I find the scent is rather pleasant - it reminds me of lavender. Anyway, the consistency is not as thick as I expected but it does absorb quickly, which is always a good thing with creams/lotions. However, this cream does not hydrate as well as my Jergens Ultra Healing lotion. Dream Cream does a decent job at moisturizing but it does not hydrate well enough to justify the cost. I continue to buy and try Lush products because I love the ingredients they use, they are hand made and cruelty free. Because of these reasons, I will continue to buy certain Lush products but Dream Cream will not be one that I will repurchase.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado

This is a rich cream unlike the other eye creams I've been using. It does not migrate and it is hydrating, which is exactly what I am looking for. Also, this is a lot less expensive than most eye creams. Unfortunately, this stings my eyes and makes them red. I so wanted to love this cream because I need a moisturizing eye cream that will not irritate my very sensitive eyes. Anyway, I may wait a few months and retry this cream but I would not recommend this cream for people with extremely sensitive eyes. I would definitely ask for a sample before purchasing this.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Prince Matchabelli- Cotton Candy Cologne Spray

I picked this up last year on a whim. Since I love sweet scents, I decided to buy it since it's so inexpensive. This really does smell like cotton candy - very yummy. The only con is that the lasting power is short. This is the only reason I would not repurchase but I do love the scent.
Fragrances -Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb
abrad1967 1/22/2010 3:33:00 AM
This is a beautiful fragrance which I did not expect to like. I am too often disappointed by scents of perfumes because I'm so, so picky and I'm also not much of a collector of perfumes. Anyway, I feel this is a unique scent which is feminine and can be slightly masculine as well. I'm horrible at describing scents. I tend to love sweet smelling scents but Flowerbomb is a wonderful, beautiful and a bit grown up scent. The lasting power is long and it did not give me a headache. This is not a fragrance I would typically purchase but it's unique and beautiful enough to add to my small collection of fragrances.
I absolutely loved this scent when I first smelled it so I had to run out and buy the cologne and lotion. This was many years ago. Yes, this is a sweet scent but I love sweet scents - I'm not much into floral scents. Anyway, whenever I wore this, I received so many compliments. I feel this is still a great scent but I'm the type of person who becomes bored with scents too quickly. However, this is a scent I would repurchase.
Wow, the scent of this cream is something else. The consistency is not thick as you would expect for a foot cream. This does not do a great job at hydrating and the smell is hard to take. The scent is quite pungent and smells like pepper and cinnamon. Even if this did an excellent job at hydrating, I would not repurchase because I dislike the scent.
I initially really liked this scent. It does smell clean - a bit like soap, imo. It is long lasting but I quickly grew bored with this scent. Imo, I don't feel this scent is extraordinary but it's not a bad smelling fragrance.
This does moisturize my dry cuticles. However, it is greasy but it does absorb into my skin in about 20 minutes. The issue I have with this product is the scent. I don't find the scent pleasing and I don't love this product enough to overlook the scent so I will not repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Body Cream - Warm Vanilla Sugar
abrad1967 1/18/2010 4:59:00 AM
I love, love this scent and I used to use this cream almost daily until I discovered Jergens Ultra Healing. The BBW creams/lotions just aren't hydrating enough for my skin. I love the scent and will continue to use the cologne and fragrance mist but will not repurchase the creams/lotions.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Warm Vanilla Sugar Body Lotion
abrad1967 1/18/2010 1:03:00 AM
This scent is my HG, for now anyway. I love this scent and use the fragrance mist regularly but this lotion is not moisturizing. I think this is great for layering scents because it does make the scent last longer to use the shower gel, lotion and fragrance mist but I feel the lotion works so poorly at moisturizing my dry skin that it's not worth repurchasing. However, I think this would work if your skin is not too dry.
The stickiness of these glosses do not bother me. However, I never cared for the brush/pen applicator. I feel the quality of these glosses are mediocre and overpriced. I definitely would not repurchase.
Fragrances -LUSH - Honey I Washed the Kids Solid Perfume
abrad1967 1/17/2010 7:12:00 PM
I love this scent. This solid perfume really does smell like soap. When initially applied, it smells a bit strange - definitely not like the soap. After 10-15 minutes, it smells exactly like HIWTK. The issue I have with this solid perfume is that the staying power is short. On me, the scent lasts approximately 2 hours.
This eyeliner smudges like no other eyeliner I've used. The texture is extremely soft and pigmented but it smudges like crazy. I tried setting this with eyeshadow but it still smudged after 20 minutes. I definitely would not repurchase.
Once again, I have to thank you MUA'ers for this wonderful find. This is not a color I would have bought but it received such high reviews on this site that I decided to try it out and I'm so, so glad I did. It's a gorgeous color and it looks great on my complexion. When I wear this shade, I don't have to wear much makeup at all. I wear a bit of foundation, mascara, concealer and that's it. I wear and love nude colors nearly every day and have been doing so for years now but I'm in love in this dark magenta color. It's gorgeous! It just shows that you never know how a color, especially a lipstick shade, will look on you unless you actually try it on. This is now my HG dark l/s shade. I will repurchase this over and over again! What a great find.
