Deodorants -The Body Shop - DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant
Laurelwood 12/19/2011 11:22:00 PM
The scent is fantastic, the idea is absolutely wonderful and the packaging is great (recyclable for the roll-ons). I really wanted to like this product and have it work for me, but unfortunately I have to say that it was quite ineffective.
I thought this would be a very deep conditioning product, but sadly I was disappointed to learn that it basically feels like slathering petroleum jelly on your body. Not the most comforting feeling mind you... However I must note that the smell is fantastic and the packaging is pretty cute!
This is a very basic, generic moisturizer. It does the job well and doesn't leave a greasy after feel. I really like the clean scent of the product and the fact that its made with natural moisturizers. However, I don't know if the collagen is actually working...
Lip Gloss -Bath and Body Works - Liplicious in Deep Aqua
Laurelwood 12/19/2011 11:16:00 PM
A very sweet, sheer gloss. The consistency is absolutely fabulous and the scent and taste are wonderful. It doesn't smell like the true "Deep Aqua" but I feel that if it did it wouldn't really work too well as a lip product.
I'm pretty sure this is my favourite fragrance from Bath & Body Works. Although it's discontinued, outlet stores continue to sell it until supplies run out. The scent is very fresh, aquatic and floral. I feel that the shower gel has the best "scent" out of the whole line, as it has more of an emphasis on the melon and aquatic notes rather than the floral and white musk. Definitely worth trying!
This product is great if you have dark circles under the eyes, droopy eyes or a general tired-look to your face. This product really helped even out the tone of my eyelids and bring focus to my eyes. This is a product that you shouldn't really go overboard with, a touch of it will go a long way, and the stick will last you a very long time.
I have mild acne, but my skin is fairly dry. I find that Dove Sensitive Skin Beauty Bar is probably the best cleanser for my face. I never would have considered using a bar as a facial cleanser, until I read some of these reviews. I'll continue using it with the Sensitive Skin Moisturizer, which is also fabulous for my dry skin!
Gels/Soaps -Dove - Go Fresh Beauty Bar - Energize Grapefruit and Lemongrass

I absolutely love this beauty bar! The scent is very strong and energizing, just like the packaging says. I can't get enough of the Grapefruit and Lemongrass scent, so I went ahead and bought the deodorant and body spray as well. If you're a fan of citrus scents - this is for you!
I bought this product more for the scent than it's moisturizing properties. The packaging is cute and sanitary for a body butter. I'm not sure what the product normally retails for, but I picked it up at Winners for $6 CAD. I like the fact that it doesn't contain parabens or other harmful chemicals/preservatives. I did notice that it does get a little greasy on the hands, and takes a while to absorb - so I prefer to use it on drier areas such as legs, elbows, knees and feet. Overall, I find that it's a good product with a great scent and definitely exceeded the value of which I paid.
Skincare - Body -Palmers - Cocoa Butter Formula with vitamin E-Swivel Stick
Laurelwood 3/6/2011 12:32:00 AM
This is a product that those who have tried, keep returning to! A creamy, smooth texture that easily glides on, but isn't waxy or sticky. Has a lovely sweet (but not overpowering!) scent, cute packaging.
What a great deodorant! Works very well, and has a lovely, light fresh scent that doesn't smell overpowering or like a deodorant at all. My only concern is that it contains aluminum, because I was under the impression that the product was organic or natural (based on the packaging; lovely green leaves). All in all, the product lasted all day (during work) and I didn't have to reapply (as I usually do with conventional deodorants)
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash

This shower cream is good at moisturizing the skin and cleansing it, but I was under the impression that it would smell like cocoa butter or chocolate, which it definitely does not. It smells more like a diaper cream. I much prefer the scent and formula of the shea shower cream by TBS.
Lotions/ Creams -Crabtree & Evelyn - Rosewater Hand Therapy
Laurelwood 3/2/2011 10:18:00 PM
What a great product! The smell is reminiscent of back home, Poland. I love the cute packaging and the fact that this little 25g tube lasts so long! The cream is not greasy and absorbs very fast, yet is incredibly moisturizing! 5/5 for sure!
