I really like this. Gives medium-full coverage and didn't oxidize horribly. I did notice it dries ever-so-slightly darker towards the end of day, but never looks orange on me. Shade ranges were good. There were more yellow tones than pink at my store so it was easy to find a reasonably close match. I have oily skin, but I like the formula of this much better for me even though it's suited for drier skin types. The Dream Matte Mousse foundation which is suited for oily skin types was absolutely horrible for me. This has a cream to powder-like finish. It blends easily and I use this often on it's own with no concealer and a setting powder. Not the best at controlling oil, but with a primer, it helps.
This soap was very drying on my skin! I got given a chunk from my friend (as part of a gift) and feel bad that she wasted her money because it doesn't work too well for me. It has the worst lather, but a nice sweet fruity scent that's quite comforting. I've used it up as a hand soap.
This is a great exfoliating soap. The only downside is that some of the chunkier bits of oatmeal can feel a little too scratchy against my skin. It lathers quite well into a milky texture and consistency and is fairly moisturizing on my skin. I don't like how quickly the oats melt off, but they have been grounded down into smaller chunks so they won't block your shower drain. It doesn't smell like porridge and isn't the best smelling Lush product either. In my opinion, it's more like a nutty scent (almonds?) with a slight warm vanilla smell.
"Rock Star" is one of those soaps where you either love or hate. It is a very sweet scent and can be a little too strong especially since the scent lingers in the shower afterwards. It does not smell like bubblegum! It has a vanilla, sugary scent and is very girly. "Rock Star" doesn't lather very well, but it doesn't dry out my skin which is a plus. Melts rather quickly so I cut it into small chunks.
This is a review for the solid perfume in the black tube packaging. I generally like citrus scented fragrances, but this is an odd combination to me. It starts off smelling sweet, then turns into a woodsy earthy scent. It smells rather weird and doesn't work with my skin chemistry. A good thing about solid perfumes is that they last a bit longer on the skin.
I found this a little drying on my skin. At first, it smelt too minty and reminded me instantly of toothpaste. Although it has a fairly strong mint scent, there's also a fruity/spicy smell that comes through when using this. The spicy scent is more like cloves or cinnamon. It smells more masculine in my opinion and is one that will definitely awaken your senses in the morning.
The scent is enough to put me off!! It smells horrible and not like honey at all. It isn't as moisturizing compared to the other lipbalms they make. It feels a little waxy and I find it better to use as a base under drying lipsticks. I like Nivea lip products in general, but I think I'll skip on repurchasing this.
I really like this. Purchased it in Pink Guava and it smells amazing! The colour is sheer (a light watermelon pink with shimmer) and applies like a gloss on my lips. It is fairly moisturizing and the shimmer isn't very dominant. I've been reaching for this a fair bit and might just go out and repurchase another scent!

I only brought this the other day and have already used a fair bit. I absolutely adore this scent! It's sweet, zesty and very refreshing on the skin. Formula is pretty typical to their other body butters, but this one is slightly less thick. It only becomes greasy if you apply too much. The only reason why I won't repurchase is because I want to try out other scents.
My LUSH store ran out of the Mint Julips one (which I was going to repurchase) so I decided on the bubblegum scent instead. The scent is a bit too sweet/artificial for my liking. It tastes nice and the lip scrub does a good job in exfoliating. My last jar lasted about 3 months before I had to repurchase, so even though it's a bit pricey for what essentially is a tiny jar of sugar, I won't repurchase this particular one and stick to the Mint Julips which gives a cooling effect on the lips when used.
I've repurchased this a couple of times. It's a yummy vanilla scent. Lathers well, rinses off easily and not irritating on my skin. Only need a small amount and one bottle lasts for quite sometime. Will keep on repurchasing.
This mascara didn't do much for me. It darkened my lashes and provided a tiny bit of length. I tried to layer this but the formula dries quickly and becomes hard to layer without achieving clumps. For reference, my lashes are naturally short, thin and a little sparse. I liked that it could hold a curl and was smudge resistant. However, it flakes so that was a shame. Overall, haven't been too impressed with L'Oreal mascaras in general.
This has become one of my favourite lotions. I'm on my second bottle and it softens my dry skin very nicely. It's cheap and effective, absorbs quickly, not sticky and has a nice light scent. What more could you ask for? Everyone should have a bottle of this in their bathroom cabinets!
This is such a nice fresh citrus scent! It wakes me up in the morning and the scent lingers throughout my bathroom afterwards. I'm not so fond of the citrus peel in the soap. It tends to break off easily and I have to sweep the bits aside to prevent it from blocking my drain. This left my skin feeling a bit drier afterwards - just a little tight and "slippery" but nothing moisturizer can't fix.

This foundation oxidizes like crazy! I brought the lightest shade they had at the store and glad I did because it dried a shade darker on me. Gives medium coverage that's not very build-able. Need to work fast because it dries quickly. Don't recommend. Selection is very odd too. They have mostly pink toned shades which makes it hard if you have yellow tones.
