Oh I wanted to love this. I had seen it mentioned in a Sephora booklet and it looked like such a neat product. I found this did almost nothing. I have fair skin and usually things are easily noticeable on me. This looked like all I had done was put a sheer highlighter on. I also did not like the application. It felt kind of funny and sank into my skin weird. This had a scent at least to me and I liked it. It was girly and not overpowering. I wish I this would give more color.
This is my first Butter London polish. It is beautiful in the bottle. It is beautiful on my nail for the most part. Except that it was really streaky. I tried applying it differently and it still went on streaky. Every time I applied it it looked like a big mess. So although a lovely color this is just not possible to wear and look classy. I also hated the brush. The handle of the brush is a little funny and I felt I could not get a good grip on it.

I got a sample of this and the matching shampoo. I was beyond estatic being I had seen these mentioned in a magazine and was excited to give them a try. These two products were horrible. So icky. Left my hair feeling icky and the smell was horrible almost spoiled. Would not try again.

I got a sample of this and the matching conditioner. I had been so excited to try this after seeing it mentioned in a magazine. Ick ick ick. This stuff was so horrible. I do like it was sulfate free, but it felt like it did not really clean my hair and the scent was icky. Would not use. Ever.
Scrubs -Unlisted Brand - Premier Mineral Dead Sea Salt Scrub
angellove1705 6/8/2012 7:11:00 PM
I got sucked into buying this at the kiosk in the mall. I hate how pushy they are and that is a big downside. I did buy the nail kit first, then tried this. I loved how much gunk it got off my hands. I have found this is great for my body and I do not need too much because of the oil in it. The oil and salt combo is perfect. Sometimes there is not enough of one and this is a great blend of both. I do not like the scent I got though. I had the plain in just the clear jar. This is a salt scrub so you have to be careful of cuts. Love this, hate the price and for that I knocked one star off.
Conditioner -Dove - Daily Treatment Conditioner, Intensive Repair
angellove1705 6/8/2012 7:01:00 PM
First off I am undecided if I would try this one again. I liked that it did leave my hair soft, but I hated that I usually felt like my hair was greasy and weighed down. I have some issues with oily roots so I have to be careful. I even tried applying this lower on my hair and I still have issues. So that is a downside for me. The scent is alright, nothing really special. I think if I was not having issues with oily hair then this would be a good option.
I got a sample of this and ick ick ick. This is such a horrible product. I found not a single great thing about this. The scent is horrible and is hard to describe. Just an icky plastic smell. The shampoo itself does not really clean. It felt like it put a ton of oil on my hair that left it hard to comb and greasy from the get go. Would not recommend to anyone.
Toners -Origins - A Perfect World Liquid Moisture with White Tea

I got a sample of this and am in love. I am surprised this is labeled as a toner. For my slightly oily skin I was able to apply this and go straight to my makeup. I found if I used this I did not need to use a separate moisturizer. The scent is ok if you like that herbal type scent. It wears off quickly that I never really noticed it unless I smelled it. This 0.24 oz sample lasted quite a while. I think this is a great product and would love to get some more.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Pink Chiffon Body Lotion
angellove1705 5/26/2012 11:22:00 PM
This scent is ok. I have to agree with another reviewer that this is a little bit too candy sweet scented. The packaging and name are very sweet although I think with the name I would think this would be more of a classic scent. This like all BBW lotions is great at moisturizing. The bottle is also great. It drains all of the lotion to the lid when turned upside down and is to cut open to scoop out leftovers. Ok scent, but not something I could handle using every single day.
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Peach Citrus
angellove1705 5/17/2012 2:24:00 PM
I did not know what to think of this scent combination, but I ended up loving it. It was so perfect and I found I loved using this. I find that all Bath and Body Works lotions are really moisturizing and last a while. The other bonus is that the bottle helps all of the lotion drip down into the lid and then it is easy to cut it open to use the rest. Defintely would recommend.
I got a deluxe sample of this and tried it two different ways. I tried it by wetting my face and rubbing some in circles. And I also tried it by rubbing some water in my hand with it and applying it to my face that way. I found one way exfoliated a little more versus the other way. I liked this although I think it worked better as a daily cleanser and really should not be considered a typical exfoliater. I would defintely purchase this to use again.
I got a sample of this. It is not my correct color so I did mix it with another foundation to make it work. I do not know if that changed it too much for me to give a complete review of it or not. I do like this foundation though. I think for the price it gives good, even coverage that lasts. I would like to try this again in my correct shade and see if my review changes any.
I got a sample of this and was beyond excited as this is touted as a multi use product. I agree with another reveiwer that I think that really can only be said depending on the shade. This shade is very dark and would not work except on the cheeks and maybe the lips for my fair complexion. This smoothed on well and a little went a long way. I think that this shade is best suited for those with darker skin tones as this looked a little clownish on my fair skin.
I received a sample of this and really thought I would love it. The outside packing for just a sample was beautiful and used a flower to close it. I was really disappointed though when I smelled so horrible. To me this is something my Grandma might wear and not modern enough for a younger, 20 something to wear.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Episencial Soothing Cream
angellove1705 5/17/2012 12:15:00 PM
I got a sample of this and seeing it was for bothered skin I was hoping this would be a good fit for me. It wasn't. This stuff is not good at least for me. It is a thick cream that made my skin so greasy and icky. The scent was icky and I thought that even though they go for the natural stuff they could have used something to scent it. The one thing I like is that this is as stated on the packaging "timeless, for all ages 0-150."
