Bath Treatments -LUSH - Vanilla Fountain Bath Ballistic

this is my absolute favorite smell from lush. if you also love the smell i suggest the heavanilli massage bar, and vanilla puff powder. i love how the smell is obvious but not overpowering in the bath. makes me soft and the scent lingers on my skin
it's a great soap but it was a bit too masculine for me, so, i gave it to my boyfriend and get to enjoy his nice skin and great smell! he loves it!
I love this soap. It's the one thing I always make sure i'm stocked up on every trip to lush. smells fantastic, looks really cool and lathers nicely. the smell lingers for just long enough, and it makes my skin really nice. i got the solid purfume in the same scent and love pairing them. i can smell honey-toffee goodness all day!
really disappointed with this. bought it kind of spur of the moment, because i liked the idea of a mask/cleanser/exfoliater all in one.. and i guess i should have researched it a bit more! i love the smell, but it dried my skin out wayyy too much. i've been using it as a spot treatment, but don't really notice that it helps my zits at all. wouldn't suggest this product.
I got a big bottle of this for free with an $80 purchase. I used it today for the first time and I like it! The smell is great, i loved the smell of the "star melt" bath melt and this is the same. the smell didn't linger for very long on my skin which was a negative, but it made my shower smell great. it lathered well and a quarter sized dollop on my shower puff was enough for my whole body, with lots left. great packaging with the signature lush font. it also doesn't expire for a long time, so i'm happy i might actually get to use all of it!
this wasn't really a BAD product, it just didn't do anything for my skin. i have pretty normal skin and don't use anything to wash it besides water, but thought it might be time to start using a cleanser. i didn't notice a difference at all in my skin. it expired and got crumbly and smelled weird before i could finish using it. maybe it works well for other people, but for my dry/normal skin it really didn't do anything!
Love it! smells nice and spicy, warm, with cinnamon and citrus. At first i was a little worried because i didn't hear any popping and crackling, then once all the fizzing stopped, i started to hear little crackles! i thought it was so great i even called my boyfriend in to listen hahaha. made me smell great and the bath experience made it really fun and worth the money. i want to stock up on these before the christmas stuff is done!!

I like this, but stick to the small size, the big one always dries up before i can use it all! Nice smell and very moisturizing.

I found this on sale for half price, I liked the packaging and the smell so I thought why not. I usually research products before I buy them and wish I would have waited before buying this. It's thick, greasy, and doesn't do its job. I liked the smell at first, but maybe after I got used to it is when it started smelling stale and chalky. The color is a gross yellowish and I'm pale, so it leaves my skin with a slight tint. My mom isn't picky about her products, and she didn't even like it when I gave her it. bad, bad, bad! (packaging is nice though.. haha)
Styling Products -The Body Shop - Brazil Nut Define and No Frizz Styling Cream

I keep buying this product because I love what it does for my hair, but there's a few things i'd change: -it's a bit heavy. i have to use a very small amount -for the price, it runs out fairy quick -the smell isn't great -packaging is annoying, it's in a squeeze tube so i always feel like im missing out on some product in the corners. however, i use it with the cottonseed curl booster (also by the body shop) and always have perfect curls. i usually run out of this product before the cottonseed stuff, and my curls still look ok without it, so i'm starting to consider if its even worth buying. is great for very frizzy hair though!

LOVE this product! makes my curls bouncy and smooth. i use it everyday now. i buy it and use it with the brazil nut define and no frizz cream from the body shop, and that usually runs out before the cottonseed curl booster.
i like this product, it does its job! way too much product comes out when you use it though. would be nicer with a more controlled opening. i think i would buy it again because it lasts me a long time, as i don't use my brushes a lot. might try shampoo or something and see if i get the same result
smells just like the vanilla fountain bath bomb which is my absolute favorite smell from lush! i use this after the therapy massage bar or buffy and it gets rid of the greasy-ness while keeping my skin soft and smelling great. i wish the smell lasted a bit longer though. but overall a great product. would be cool if they packaged it with a little puff to apply it!
Love it!!! exfoliates and moisturizes all in one. i keep mine in a dish outside of the shower because it can dissolve quickly. it's the last thing i use before getting out of the shower; i move the shower head so i'm not directly under the water stream then scrub away! rinse off and i'm good to go. it is slightly greasy at first, but when you pat dry you just feel smooth and soft. sometimes it leaves little bits on the bottom of my tub, but nothing a quick rinse cant get rid of. it smells a little earthy to me, like the angels on bare skin cleanser also made by lush. i wish it had a sweeter scent cause that's what i prefer, but when finished off with some vanilla puff powder (by lush) i feel soft, and smell great. it is a bit abrasive, but i like it. it makes me feel like all the dead skin is gone! if you have sensitive skin you might think it hurts. overall i love buffy! and if you're careful with it and treat it like an "after shower" product and dont keep it in the bath/shower, it can last a long time! ive used mine 4 times and still have about 70% left
russian red is my signature red lipstick. i get tons of compliments whenever i wear it. i love the matte look, i'm pale with dark hair so my lips really pop with this color. it doesn't last very long but that's to be expected. smells great and doesn't dry out on me.
