Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15
TeHNyboR 4/12/2013 2:45:00 AM
I got a sample size of this as a birthday present from Sephora along with Sugar Rose, and I wasn't pleased with either. I had a bad reaction to the rose scent, and this one was alright. Very moisturizing and pretty much doubled as a gloss, but the packaging was abysmal. I could barely twist up the stick or the product would break! And chapstick isn't as glossy but it's sure as heck a lot cheaper! Glad I got this as a gift...I would never pay full price for this.
This stuff smelled great and did a good job cleaning my hair. It left no residue behind, moisturized well, and the smell wasn't overly strong. However, for the price, you really don't get a lot of product, so I see this as kind of a rip off. I've used cheaper shampoos that have done just as good (if not better) a job than this stuff, so I unfortunately won't be repurchasing.
This stuff was pretty good! It was highly pigmented, lasted all day but came off easily with makeup remover, and the pen tip made it easy to do winged liner with. However, I found this dries out very quickly, which put me off after having to throw it away a few weeks after I got it. Because of that, I won't be buying this product again.
Cleansers -Noxzema - Triple Clean Anti-Bacterial Cleanser

I really liked this cleanser! My sister gave this to me because it didn't work for her, but it worked great for me! I use cream cleaners now since my skin's getting drier as I get older, and I really like this one. It cleans my face and takes off my makeup no problem. I use it with my Olay face brush in the shower and it lathers great and makes me feel squeaky clean, but not like my skin's been stripped of oils or anything. Will definitely buy again!
While this conditioner smelled beautiful, I found that it wasn't moisturizing enough for my coarse and thick hair. I found that I needed a ridiculous amount in order to thoroughly coat my hair (yes my hair's long, but when I used the same amount as I did with any other conditioner, it wasn't enough) and it really wasn't that moisturizing. I've used better conditioners that did a better job and I won't be repurchasing this.
LOVE this soap! I really love how Lush makes sweet scents that don't make me want to vomit. This is a very sweet smelling product, but to me there's a hint of spice and floral. It lathers great and unlike other reviewers, I haven't experienced any drying effects. Gets me all squeaky clean too and the scent isn't overpowering so it doesn't clash with my perfume! Would definitely buy again!
I've been a devoted Tresemme user for years, but even all the styling products in the world wouldn't help de-frizz my naturally wavy hair. Enter this stuff. It didn't get rid of all the frizz, but it got rid of enough where I was able to tame it! Smells great too and cleans my hair like a dream. And you get a LOT for the price! Would definitely buy again!
This is probably one of my favorite bar soaps. The smell is very light and slightly floral, and isn't overpowering or strong. I can barely smell it on my skin after a shower, which is nice because I don't like soaps or lotions clashing with my perfume. But what I loved about this bar is that it lathers like a freaking dream! I get a very rich, creamy lather when I use this, and it's very moisturizing as well. Definitely buying this again!
I picked this and 3 other body butters up for a steal at Sephora during the end of the holidays. This was the first one I used, and I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. The smell's very light and refreshing and the lotion itself goes on very thick and creamy, but it takes too long to absorb and when it finally does absorb, my skin feels drier for some reason. I haven't been impressed by Korres products in the past, and this unfortunately hasn't swayed my opinion. Glad I got this for a steal, because I won't be buying this again.
Such a gorgeous scent! I'm usually into more floral and fruity smells, but this stuff won me over at first whiff. It smells very soapy and clean, and it's an extremely light fragrance that doesn't leave people gagging as you walk by. My only gripe is that it wears off after a few hours, but I still love it! Definitely buying again once my bottle runs out!
Lip Treatments -eos - Lip Balm Sphere - Lemon Drop SPF 15

This was an okay lip balm. I love the Sweet Mint flavor, and I thought I'd give Lemon Drop a chance. While it is a pretty good lip balm, I find it's not as moisturizing as the others and that it seemingly dries out if you don't use it enough. Smells and tastes good though, but I don't think I'll repurchase.
I first discovered Northern Lights when my mom came home from work with a small sample slice of it for me. I was immediately taken with its bright neon colors and citrusy-pine smell. However, I've had bad experiences with bar soaps. They don't lather all that well for me and they always leave my skin without any slip and feeling slightly dry. Enter this stuff, and my opinion has been forever changed. I rub this into my loofah in the shower and I get a great, light and citrusy smelling lather. It does feel only a tad dry on my skin, but I think that's to be expected of any bar soap. It left an extremely subtle scent on my skin so it didn't clash with any body lotion or perfume, and it takes a veeeeeery long time to melt, so it'll last a long time. I liked it so much that I bought a full sized bar!
I'm fairly new to Lush things, but I loooooooove this massage bar!! A Lush store just opened in my town, and this was the only massage bar that I really loved. The smell was downright heavenly, which surprised me since some of the notes smell chocolatey (any beauty product that usually has a chocolate scent just makes me nauseous). This is a bit greasy, so I rub it on before I go to bed, and when I wake up, my skin's super soft! My scent-sensitive roommate says this is too strong for her, so I wouldn't recommend it to people with sensitive noses or scent related allergies, but the scent really tones itself down the morning after I've applied it. Overall, a fantastic product! Would buy again and again and again!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Velvet Tuberose Body Lotion
TeHNyboR 1/2/2013 1:57:00 AM
As a total and complete BBW fanatic, it's hard for me to find a scent that I've never used. Enter Velvet Tuberose. I received a bottle of this lotion in a swap and was taken with the scent at first whiff. It's very much a winter scent...it has a musky and deep smell, but an underlying fruity scent as well. It didn't clash with any perfume or body spray I chose to wore, and I received many compliments from family and friends. As far as I know, this fragrance is discontinued, but if they ever bring it back, I'm definitely stocking up!
While this is a great, thick moisturizing cream, the smell is just disgusting. I love the smell of jasmine, but this smelled like sour rotten apples with just the faintest hint of jasmine. Gave it to my mom who loved the scent. Definitely won't buy again.
