Skincare - Body -Little Shop of Beauty - Whipped Body Butter

Got this in Pink Flamingo after reading some raves on the scent. It's a great summer scent--fruity, with some sweet & some tart notes. As for the creme, it's a very luxurious, moisturizing texture. Heavier than the souffle; I think I'd love it most in the winter months.
Can't believe I've had this for so long & not yet reviewed it. This stuff is wonderful. It has a nice mild fragrance & the product itself is light, so it doesn't weigh my hair down at all. I give it 5 lippies--it doesn't claim to detangle, just to preserve & extend the life of hair-color--and it does a great job with that!
Skincare - Body -Little Shop of Beauty - Body Gloss

Another rave for LSOB. The Body Gloss is a spray on oil, which makes for easy application. I got mine with shimmer. In the package, it looks like tiny silver flakes. But once applied, the shimmer is very subtle, (in fact, I really can't tell that it's on my skin). I'm a bit disappointed w/ the scent's staying power. I got this item in Island Mist (a lot like Tropical Temptation, which I think I prefer over Island Mist). But the gloss is very hydrating, and great for making summer skin glow!

The staying power of this is surprisingly long. I wish it scented my hair better, but I find it works best on my body. It's light & refreshing, like your typical body mist. I have it in Tropical Temptation--great scent!
Lotions/ Creams -Little Shop of Beauty - Hula Girl Body Souffle

The Hula Girl Souffle is wonderful! I love, love the texture--light, yet very moisturizing on my dry skin. I have one in Tiare (smells just like the Hawaiian flower) & one in Surf Goddess (so yummy. It's the perfect suntan lotion-y scent I've been looking for. But it has some subtle fruity notes in it, that make it even better). I really want to try these out in some other scents!!
Scrubs -Little Shop of Beauty - Hula Girl Sugar Scrub

I love my sugar scrubs--they're so much gentler than salt ones! So I'm on the hunt for my HG. I got LSOB's scrub in Tranquil Tropics. I'm not a huge fan of the scent (smells really sweet & buttery to me...not exactly tropical), but the scrub itself is nice. The texture has just enough grain to it, and the oils are very soothing & moisturizing (a tad on the greasy side though, but I have dry skin, so I suck all the moisture in pretty quickly). Will definitely buy again since the price is reasonable, and I can get it in any scent I want!
Oh my gosh! *Love* this!! Just bought it recently. The SA had recommended ExhibitA for my skintone (warm CCC/MMM with yellow undertones). And I liked it, but it was too similar to my BE Glee. I decided to go w/ Torrid, and I'm so glad I did! I've heard so many raves for these blushes and now I know why. This color lasts, is well-pigmented, & gives the perfect "flush" to my cheeks! My new HG!!
Skincare - Body -MMU Cosmetics - Pumpkin Pie & Brown Sugar

Mm. This reminds me of Christmas for some reason. A hint of pumpkin, and a lot of spice. Very cinnamon-y. I received this in a swap; it's the sweet body butter--creamy & blends into the skin well. It's the 'strong' intensity, which might be a little overwhelming on warm days. I'm not usually into foody scents, but this is just so yummy!
I read the previous comments, bought this, & loved it! Makes my straight semi-fine hair thicker & gives it wonderful texture. I wish I'd discovered this earlier! The product doesn't weigh down my hair at all. You can apply to wet, damp, and dry hair for different results. And the pump dispenser makes it easy to use.
I love peel-off masks. (They're fun, right?) But this was a poor choice for my skin. I guess the 'hydro' part just made me too oily. I could only use this in the winter. I had only used about 1/3 of this when the butt end of the packaging split open! Eventually, the product dried out and gelled. For the price I paid, I expected a little better than that.
I really like Bumble and Bumble products, and Gloss is no exception. It gives great shine, tames fly-aways, and since you only need a spritz or two a day, lasts forever. I find the best way to avoid grease-ball locks (I have fine, straight hair) is to spray the product on a paddle brush and run the brush over my hair.
I got really excited about trying this shampoo when I read some great reviews in a few magazines. Unfortunately, I wound up disappointed. The shampoo consistency is extremely water-based, making it a little difficult to handle. It gives virtually no lather. My hair stayed "fine and limp" despite the volumizing claims, and it wasn't even that clean! Plus, having a glass shampoo bottle in the shower just isn't very safe.
