Lotions/ Creams -DHC - Acerola Body Gel Moisturizer

After epillating, I tend to get ingrowns, so I do not use regular lotion. I tried this gel instead and it is soooo much better. Weightless moisture for the warm months as well, and does not leave you sticky.
I have the blueberry 4 wick pan candle and it has amazing throw...and is very cute as well. You cannot use the pan for food, thought I may reuse it was a tart burner. I was considering other scents from this line, though it sounds as though it might be hit or miss. I simply adore this blueberry one, though, and plan to buy it again.

It is sooo hot out, and though I dislike the sticky feel of oils, this smells so nice, I am giving it a pass. Love that it has an SPF. Most sunscreens smell too strongly to me to wear to the grocery store or anywhere else but the beach, so this works fine for me.
The formula is a bit thin, but 3 coats results in a creamy pool aqua suitable for warmer and olive skin tones. I appreciate this color because I can not wear the pastels most people seem to look cute in, even with a tan. A nice way to start pedicure season in spring! Looks nice on my hands too!
Pricy. Smells great. Absorbs oil without drying. Evens out redness. Despite the cost, i''d definitely buy again; it made enough difference for me to actually get in the habit of using a mask once a week. I doled out portions and froze them for future use. Some of the lush items are a miss, but this is a definite hit for me. I will go thru extra trouble if something actually works for me.

I have used this daily since I bought it and have hit pan. I am a light medium olive and yes this is perfect. I'd love a cuter package, but it is still functional without a mirror. I still wish I bought all of this when I had the chance. Flattering, blends well, wears well for a powder on me because usually they fade super fast on me. The blush del ice scent is super yummy but not overwhelming. I have another shade of this, the Owl's night, which is a pinker tone, which I may use in summer. I miss these already!
I bought a votive to test the scent, because chocolate scents often smell fake. This is pretty good so I may go buy the bigger size before Easter! It does smell like brownies!
For scent I am giving this a 5. cherry and Swedish fish, like others said. Lingers on my skin in a good way, but I do not appear to be allergic. it has not dried out my skin but I could see how people might have issue. Rinsed clean and my tub is not pink yet.
If you love roses but want it to smell natural and not overwhelming, this is the ticket.
I think this has a nice fresh clean scent, a natural apple, not fake, but pretty mild. I require more moisturizing in my soaps but I still like this and it is nice if you want a good basic soap and like the scent. I have not had a dud with any of their soaps really.

This is unusual for me, and unusual in general. My DH likes this a lot and sees the dry down as powdery. I do not get vanilla or the chocolate, but this amounts to green insence on me. In a good way. Not smoky or wet or herbal....Very dry and clean with a smudge of darkness.
Agree with previous reviewer that this smells of Coppertone. Not as sharp tho. Nice on my hands when I want to switch up from my usual vanillas. I do not tend to wear this out, because itis not "me" but I wear it at home when I want to clear my head, sort of as aromatherapy.
I loved the color and the big brush. I'd buy again but I am not sure it's around anymore. Bad gal blue by the way...never tried the black
I used this up, which I rarely do. Love the scent and irritation was minimal. For Something with sunscreen this did not seem to make me breakout.

I have a decade old maxi liner that is better than this. I love the color, but unless you are the sort to buy something and then wear it ceaselessly this will probably dry out very fast and you will have to sharpen it with every use. Heating it does not help. meh.
