I like Savage Bronze better, but this is worth trying I suppose. I like the instant look of a tan that I get from Savage Bronze...I'm so pale that I need that type of color. Also, the Jergens product made my legs orangy where Savage Bronze does not. The good thing about the Jergens one is that you can use it on your hands and you won't get "self-tanner" hands.
I LOVE this soap. Love the color and the creamyness of it. Makes my bathroom smell like a LUSH store! It didn't last very long, but other than that, it is wonderful if you like sweet scents.
Gels/Soaps -LUSH - 'B’ Never Too Busy To Be Beautiful Shower Gel
TrishaLynn 4/11/2005 11:52:00 AM
If you like pure honey scents, this is for you. It even looks like honey when you pour it out of the bottle. Nice shower gel, and even works nice as a bubble bath. Contains lots of honey, which is soothing for the skin. I even used this as a face wash, and it worked well.
Smells divine, nice texture (if you mix it up first with the big grains and small grains), but it is way to harsh for my skin. My skin turns bright red and stings after I use this on my face. Caused me to break out I think. Ok as a foot/elbow scrub though. I would by it again just for the scent. The plastic container is a bit annoying as it doesn't always close right.
Fragrances -Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab - Dana O'Shee

Nice fragrance, but a little to "almondy" for me. Received an Imp and will use that when I am in the mood for this fragrance. Otherwise, would not repurchase.
I received this in my first round of Imps. It is exactly what I imagined Alice would smell like, bergamont tea, milk, honey, and spicy flowers. Very unique scent, but I wouldn't repurchase in a full size. I love the March Hare scent from this collection, it is yummy, full of Apricots...so if you like foody scents, check that one out!

Bleh! Got this as an IMP with one of my orders. Disgusting and very long lasting, which wasn't a good thing for this fragrance. I hated the smell of this the whole time I was wearing it and couldn't wait to gleen my body of it.
This reminds me of Halloween...although I wear it year round. It's a sweet pumpkin, spicy and delicious oil that dries down on me wonderfully. I feel almost edible wearing it...it makes my mouth water sometimes it's so yummy! If you like foody scents, this is a must try!
Cleansers -Olay - Age Defying Daily Renewal Cleanser
TrishaLynn 2/15/2005 11:02:00 AM
I really like this cleanser. I'm on my second bottle of it. It leaves my skin very soft and not tight feeling. I think the scent is a bit cloying, but I like the texture and the slight exfoliating granules that are very gentle. I recently went to England and didn't pack the bottle since it's in a pump, but I found a squeeze tube of this at Boot's Pharmacy, and I hope we get this packaging in the US soon as I like it much better than the pump bottle. Overall, great cleanser and very cheap! I use this once a day and the Total Effects Cleansing Clothes at night because they do a better job at removing my black eyeliner and mascara. I wrote a separate review for the clothes as well.
Liquid -Maybelline - Smooth Results foundation [DISCONTINUED]
TrishaLynn 2/15/2005 10:50:00 AM
I like the coverage and dewy finish of this foundation, although it may not be for someone with very oily skin. I am on Accutane now, so my skin can tolerate it, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to use this when I'm off. I find that Buff matches my skin nicely when I've had a session of self tanner. I am very pale normally, so this adds a good bit of color to my face. It is a thick creamy foundation, which provides good coverage of past scars. I find that applying this with a wedge makeup sponge gives me the best finish. I set it with loose powder and I almost have flawless skin (almost!). Will continue to reuse if it doesn't cause breakouts. Have been using it for a week with no problems. Does make skin smoother and more healthly looking. SPF of 18 is an added plus. I fear that this might be discontinued since I see it on 50% off at the drugstore, and Maybelline has just come out with Age Rewind foundation, which I tried and returned cause it was mediocre. I will be stocking up on Buff in case it gets taken off the shelves!!!
I'm on my second box of these...I just buy the refills and keep the original black box that they came with. I use these once a day and use the Olay Skin Renewing Cleanser in the morning and these at night. They foam up really well and do a nice job exfoliating without having harsh scrub particals that facial scrubs do. I really like these and I thought they might cause me to breakout, but nothing so far. Will continue to use.
Lip Gloss -Cover Girl - WetSlicks Lip Gloss - Patently Pink
TrishaLynn 12/10/2004 3:58:00 PM
Love this shade. I bought this and the Shimmer Shell one. I like this because it has a bit more pigment in it. It looks great over a neutral lip liner. I like the mild flavor...not too overpowering.

I love this gloss...a nice everyday color and it doensn't have an overpowering flavor like Jane lip gloss does. I got this and a pinker shade as well, and I'm very happy with them.
Moisturizers -Dove - Sensitive Essentials Night Cream
TrishaLynn 12/1/2004 12:17:00 PM
Another great find from MUA! I would have never thought to try this cream, but I am so glad I did. I've been using this for about 2 weeks in conjunction with the Dove Soap for Sensitive skin and I am very happy with the results. The night creme is soothing to my skin and sinks right in after application. It has a slight, kind of nutty? scent to it even though it says it's frag free. But I actually like the slight scent. The cream is white, a little thick, but doesn't clog pores and does just what it's supposed to do: moisturize! I've actually been using this both DAY & NIGHT, not just at night. I use less of it during the day under my make up. I am allergic to sunscreens, so I actually use this during the day too. I think it creates a protective shield on my skin to protect it from irritants. Definitely makes my skin feel and look for healthy. My cheeks feel so soft after using this! Highly recommended for sensitive skin! My skin is combo prone to breakouts from product sensitivity, so don't be afraid to try this if you have skin like mine.
Didn't do anything to help with pimples. I don't think that any of the Murad products for acne prone skin are worth a dime.
