Lotions/ Creams -The Body Bakery - Sugar Cookie Whipped Cream
CinnamonKitty 5/22/2004 10:45:00 PM
I had this in a sample, and I'm very glad I hadn't purchased the full size! From the beginning there is a strange note. Not quite plastic, but something that just makes it "off." The scent keeps the off note through application and then dries down to a cookie scent, but very light, and doesn't last long at all. The cream is light and a bit greasy which is tolerable in a scent I enjoy, but not this. What a shame, I had heard good things. Oh well, it's too expensive anyway!
Candles -Bath and Body Works - Green Clover & Aloe candle
CinnamonKitty 5/21/2004 12:26:00 PM
This is one of my favorite BBW scents, and the candle is a great addition to the set! It does smell when it burns which is wonderful, and the scent is very refreshing. It is a green springy scent which is identical to the body products. It scents my whole room and lasts a long time even after I blow it out. Definitely another BBW winner. Too bad this scent is discontinued...
Lotions/ Creams -Earthen Treasures - Body Parfait in Cherry Vanilla
CinnamonKitty 5/19/2004 12:03:00 PM
I'm a bit sad beccause I really had high hopes for this product. Don't get me wrong, the product itself is awesome! It's a cream layered with aloe gel, so it's cooling and moisturizing, would be perfect for after sun exposure. It also sinks in real quickly. However, the scent is just not good. It's unfortunate because in the container it smells delicious, like cherry cupcake frosting, but on the drydown I get nothing but burnt plastic. If I found a good scent this product would be a winner, but ugh. Not this one.
Fragrances -Parfums de Coeur - Juice Bar Cotton Candy fragrance
CinnamonKitty 5/17/2004 12:20:00 AM
I was lucky enough to find this at rite-aid, so I snatched it up! It smells so true and perfect! Just a sweet fun scent. I love it. It's cheap too. My only complaint is it doesn't last that long. I had to keep misting throughout the day...oh well. Still a keeper for the cotton candy lover!
Shampoo -Back to Basics - Wildberry Volumizing Shampoo & Cond.
CinnamonKitty 5/14/2004 7:05:00 PM
I got this set for easter and adore it. I've used back to basics before but had always used the raspberry almond. This is just as delicious. It is a true fruity scent, not plasticy or fake. It makes my hair soft and silky with lots of volume, without weighing it down. I would definitely buy this again, but I want to try all of B2B's scents!
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Cucumber Melon body lotion
CinnamonKitty 5/14/2004 3:14:00 PM
As always this has the amazing avon consistancy. Creamy, not greasy and leaves my skin sooooo soft! This scent is like the one from B&BW but is much fresher. Very fruity and refreshing. However, of all the avon lotions I've tried this has the least staying power. Vanilla and sweet pea last for days, this one maybe hours. It is still a great summer lotion that I would probably repurchase...
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Shea Deluxe Lotion
CinnamonKitty 5/14/2004 12:18:00 AM
Wow, I had the exact different reaction than the previous reviewer. For me, this was a thick creamy lotion that sunk in well. It is thick so it took some rubbing, but it didn't leave me greasy at all! My skin was so soft with this, and it holds scent fairly well. I have yet to really try the souffles however!
I bought this in the clear vanilla flavor, and it is much better than I expected. The packaging is a little iffy, you get a lot of product with one click, and it is bulky but the product itself is nice. It is just a clear gloss, but it is not sticky at all. It has a basic vanilla flavor (not cake battery) and lasts a long time without being tacky. I will definitely buy this again and may try the color ones next time!
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Fashion - Cherry Vanilla Bean
CinnamonKitty 5/12/2004 10:00:00 AM
I really wanted to try the lip fashions because the flavors sounded so yummy. And I'm sure they would be if you could get any product out! I have tried rolling this over and over, even on my hand and nothing. It smells good, but I've never actually gotten any gloss out. Thanks but I'll stick to glosses that actually work.
I have sample of this, and I used it on my hands and feet before going to bed, and I think I've found my HG nighttime moisturizer. The scent is an amazing cocoa/marshmallow that sort of reminded me of a candy bar. And the texture is very buttery and greasy so I would only use it at night but this morning my hands and feet were soooo soft! I would definitely buy the full size of this, it is worth the price!!!
Skincare - Body -MMU Cosmetics - Strawberry White Cake
CinnamonKitty 5/10/2004 12:34:00 AM
I'm not sure what formula I had this in because it was a sample, but the scent was very nice. A sweet creamy strawberry, but I got no cake scent at all. It also faded after like an hour. I love the scent but will try to find a version that is longer lasting (S&L?)
Cleansers -Olay - Hydrating Daily Facials for Normal to Dry Skin
CinnamonKitty 5/9/2004 11:37:00 PM
I received just a single sample one of these, and I am definitely going to buy a full box. They lather well, rinse clean, and leave my face feeling very clean and soft! I have pretty dry skin and will use a moisturizer after, and probably wouldn't use everyday, but these are a definite treat!
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Shea deluxe lotion -- Pink Flamingo
CinnamonKitty 5/8/2004 12:53:00 PM
This is a wonderful scent! Smelling it in the bottle, I wasn't totally sure, but once it is on, it's lovely. When you apply it, it smells exactly like lifesavers, but when it dries down, the candy smell goes away and you are left with a lovely fruity scent with a hint of vanilla. Delish! Also, as always this lotion formula is thick and moisturizing but sinks right in! Another S&L winner.
Eye Shadow -Avon - Luminous Liquid Eye Color - Vanilla Pearl
CinnamonKitty 5/7/2004 4:08:00 PM
I adore this! It is my perfect summer shadow. To make it last I layer Jane eye zing in coolest coral over it. The color is just a sheer creamy shimmer. Almost looks like lipgloss for your eyes! I just love the subtle shiny gleam. Will definitely get more of these when they're on sale.
Skincare - Body -The Body Bakery - cheesecake whipped cream
CinnamonKitty 5/4/2004 8:37:00 AM
I got a sample of this, and wow, does it smell good! I get mostly the crust, but there is definitely true cheesecake! The cream itseld is a bit greasy, leaves skin with a sheen for a bit, but does sink in and is moisturizing. It is a little pricier than most e-tailers, but so far I'm ttoally lovin the body bakery!
