Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Overall this product is just okay. Sometimes I get flakes on my oily/combo skin and this does not help. I feel like sometimes it actually makes it worse. Recently, I tried another product which works much better. It is a little pricer, but a little goes a long way. This lotion is nice to put on your nice to smooth your skin, but I wouldn't repurchase.
I bought two of these in the darker red colors because I figured they would not be very pigmented. They add the perfect amount of color to my lips and moisturize too. For reference I also have the Revlon Lip Butter's, but while those are more pigmented I felt like they dried out my lips. I would purchase these again.
I'm not usually a fan of VS fragrances. For some reason most of them seem to be sickly sweet or musky and overpowering. This is perfect! I get so many compliments about how fresh and clean smelling this smells! Working in fairly close office environment, I have to be careful what perfumes I use as not to offend anyone. Sheer Love is not offensive, but clean and refreshing.
In a magazine I got a whiff of a sample of this perfume and immediately loved it. Normally, I'm not a fan of floral perfumes but this one is very soft and not overpowering. This is perfect for spring and summer. Compared to the original (which I don't care for) this is very feminine. As a side note, I sometimes will get headaches from different perfumes and this one doesn't pull any triggers. The only downside is the price tag. Other than that I'm loving it so far! :-)
The colorful packaging sucked me in...and I REALLY did want to love this mascara, but unfortunately it didn't work out. Like other reviewers have said it clumped pretty badly and gave a spider lash effect. Maybe next time, Maybelline.
So far I'm loving this palette! The only shadow I'm not thrilled with is Nude Beach....I would compare this to Sidecar from UD Naked Palette. Nude Beach is just big chunks of glitter, not good if you wear contacts! Of course it has to be one of the bigger colors too :-( Besides that I love this palette!
I got this when I purchased a Stila set from a wholesale club and I have to say I am not impressed. The formula didn't do much for my lashes and it flaked horribly. I wear contacts, so I have to be careful about which mascara I use and this one flaked and would stick to my lenses....ugh. Into the trash this goes!
Like other reviewers have posted this can cause little cysts in your underarm area. Initially I thought this worked really well, but after a few days of using this I noticed little sore bumps in my armpit. I've used other Dove deodorants and never had this problem before. Wouldn't recommend using.
Conditioner -Organix - Moroccan Argan Oil Renewing Treatment

I've tried other Argan Oil treatments, but sometimes they can make my hair too oily. This works nicely. Just scoop from product out of the pot and put it on wet hair and wait a few minutes then rinse. My hair wasn't overly oily and it did seem much smoother at the tips. I think I will use this in place of regular conditioner. *For reference my hair is fine, oily at the roots and color treated.*
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash pink grapefruit foaming scrub

Since I was a teenager I've suffered with acne problems. I used to go to the dermatologist and that cleared it up but as I got older that wasn't necessary. Now that I am 25 I still notice that I get some pimples and usually I would have no problem with a strong facial cleanser. This one made my face actually dry in some areas and I believe brought on breakouts since it was so stripping. Maybe if you have a different skin type this would work well for you.
I think I'm the minority on this one, but Pure Grace really didn't do much for me. When I tried it out it smelled like I had over saturated myself in laundry detergent. Don't get me wrong I love fresh and clean scents, but this wasn't for me. Maybe it is the way it responded with my body chemistry since everyone is different.
I really wanted to love Tuca Tuca. After getting my LUSH times I went and purchased a massage bar. Initially, I thought it kind of smelled like a funeral home...BUT it is tolerable after it settles. This isn't my favorite LUSH scent, but I'll use it as a moisturizer after shaving.
If you are a KP sufferer like myself, you must try Buffy. This is the only product to truly help. Buffy will exfoliate and moisturize at the same time, it is fabulous! I step out of the water and rub the bar on wet skin instead of wetting the entire Buffy bar and I have gotten a lot of use out of it. Be careful because if it does get wet it can melt very quickly.
Skincare - Body -LUSH - King of Skin Body Conditioner

Wonderful moisturizer! This is perfect to use right after shaving and in the harsh winter months. I use this in the shower and the moisturizing effects last all day, no need to apply anything else. The price is definitely worth it! One great thing about LUSH products is they are great for sensitive skin and KoS is no exception.
I have been searching for this type of scent for a very long time and I am so happy to have found it! The best way to describe it is a clean floral scent. It also smells much better on than on a tester strip. I did not get an "old lady" vibe off this perfume...I think of more rosy scents. Give Inner Grace a try...you will love it!
