Wow..I heard about this and thought I would give it a try...it has been weeks and the amount of pink dye coming out is alarming...I don't know why it is pink to begin with..I enjoy organic products for the most part, this seems pretty toxic to use on my skin
Wow??!!!! Are we reviewing the same product...too much pigment?? This has ZERO pigment, it is as sheet as the powder....just a shimmer streak, that is it..I had to check and make sure I had actually picked up the blush...while I love the powder, this is a joke for a blush, going back asap..
I am an Angel girl head to toe, covered in a fine mist, simply the best scent on Earth..pun intended. I have to try all the TM fragrances, I am also impressed with Alien and Angel Rose...I received a generous sample of Womanity...spritzed and waited...an hour later it was love...I think that one really has to wait until all the notes have settled and see how the scent evolves...at first sniff it reminded me of many former perfumes, but now that it has settled, I can't think of one, it is unique, warm and salty. It won't replace my beloved Angel, but it will be in the rotation and I will purchase a full size..the man is a genius.
Candles -Archipelago Botanicals - All Candle Scents
CelestialBlue 5/18/2010 3:08:00 PM
These are the best candles in the world, bar none. They are beautifully presented in an adorable box, the glass holder and decorative ribbon are classic and the THROW!!!! Every room in my home smells rich and warm for hours...I've tried them all I think, the Fig is by far my favorite. A rich, deep earthy smell that makes you happy just to be in your home. You will love them!
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil
CelestialBlue 3/28/2010 11:21:00 AM
Well I'm late to the party, I thought this was a really new product and look at all the reviews already!!! I love Burt's Bees and Pomegranates, so this is a perfect combo...I've never really like the gritty peppermint of some of the other balms, so first off, the texture is perfect....smooth and slick without being too oily...I love that it gives a very subtle red gleam to you lips, perfect for the morning dog walk, you don't look all chapped and pale. ..yes, it is very subtle, but then you don't need a mirror to put it on, works for me....and I LOVE the scent, an addictive sweet fruity smell, is it like a pomegrante? That is hard to say as I don't know what I would describe their smell as...but suffice it to say it smells great and I love putting it on..my lips feel very moisturized..great product
I love matte lipsticks and wanted to pick one of these up for while. In today's Sunday paper they have a $3.00 off coupon at Walgreens, off I went. It's so cold only chocolate and a new lippie could get me out of the house..First the good news, the formula is divine. Creamy enough to wear without a lip balm underneath. I'm older, so I don't like to see dried out lines in my lips if the lipstick is too matte...I can see the lines on my lips, but it doesn't look all cakey and hard. The tube is beautiful and I love the see through top. The bad news is that I would by no means consider this shade "fig"..fig implies a bit plummy and this is a straight up browned red. The shade looks great on me, but not at all what I expected, I was thinking more like BB Raisin, to me that is a Fig shade...very happy otherwise...
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Whole Foods Holiday Trio Lip Balm

I buy these every year, the scents vary each year. For 2010 they are Wintermint, Vanilla and Ginger Lemon...They are all natural, not too goopy, but very moisturizing...They still have alot on the shelves and last year they sold out quickly, maybe the scents aren't as big a draw this year...I keep one in every pocket...Excellent product and great price, 3.99
Gels/Soaps -St. Ives - Oatmeal and Shea Butter Body Wash
CelestialBlue 11/20/2008 8:44:00 PM
http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_sodium_lauryl_sulfate_used_for Doesn't seem very gentle to me...hated it. SLS, pure poison for the skin
I';ve been using this and other Badger products for years. I put this on my temples and a bit above my lip before sleep. I wish there was more of a lavender scent, but it helps me sleep nonetheless. I put a dab on top of my dog's head during thunderstorms and when I'm away, it calms him too..
Polishes -Maybelline - Express Finish - Speedy Hot Tamale
CelestialBlue 7/4/2008 7:13:00 PM
As the former reviewer mentioned, I went looking for the discontinued "Juicy Tomato", my HG of summer toes...Sadly that shade and formula no longer exist. I saw one last bottle left of Hot Tamale and picked it up as it seemed similiar in shade. The formula goes on smooth with it's own natural shine even before the top coat. This shade is not exactly Juicy Tomato, but close enough. This one is just a bit redder. I am impressed with this formula and I will be picking up a few more.
My local Walgreens is selling this for $9.99 with a 100% send in rebate in the coupon savings book. I need a new razor, so why not?? I am very happy with the results so far. I don't know if it is the five blades or the design of the head, but the razor has a nice flexibility and just skims down the skin. Seems very smooth, no compaints so far, comes with one extra blade replacement.
I have been wearing this perfume scent for years and finally got around to getting the body lotion. I am very impressed. Exactly like the bottled scent, creamy and long lasting. I will probably wear just the lotion in the summer, but right now I am layering both. I cannot tell you how many people stand next to me and then ask me what I'm wearing. I work closely with the public in the healing arts and I consider the warm vanilla, bergomet and lavender aromatherapy for them as well as myself. Great product, now they need to make a soap, I know they have a shower gel.
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Winter Retreat Vanilla Indulgence Beauty Bar
CelestialBlue 2/2/2008 10:07:00 AM
This soap was given to me by a friend who bought out the lot at Target. I love vanilla and was excited to try it...The scent is lovely but the ingredients listed are too numerous to name. I don't want to wash my body with that mess of chemicals, I'll stick to my Tom's of Maine. Olay rates pretty high at EWG for toxic ingredients, but then most drugstore items do...
Cleansers -Olay - Oil of Olay moisture balancing foaming face wash
CelestialBlue 2/2/2008 9:46:00 AM
I was given this by a friend, I usually use a very gentle olive oil soap to wash my face. I tried it once, it felt greasy and sticky, really wouldn't rinse. THEN I read the ingredients, looks like the makings of a chemistry experiment. Why wash my face with all those chemicals when I can use pure soaps?? I really can't believe any company has to put so much crap into a cleanser, money-saving I guess..Awful. Just get some glycerin or olive oil soap and your skin will thank you imho. http://www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/product.php?prod_id=5808
Bath Treatments -Queen Helene - Lavender Batherapy - Natural Mineral Bath
CelestialBlue 1/20/2008 1:31:00 PM
I have used this product, both powder and liquid for years. It is amazing on sore muscles and smells divine. It turns the bath a milky color and feels very soothing. It is not harsh like some salts, I have extremely dry skin and my skin still feels great after using no doubt due to the glycerine. I stock up when they are BOGOF at Walgreens/CVS. A one pound bottle runs around $5.49. I put a handful in really hot water, soak for half an an hour, put on snuggly pj's and go to bed and when I wake up all my back pain is gone...
