This is GREAT stuff, but please remember - it only removes fresh self tanners from your skin. It won't take off a developed tan. Anyway, I love this - no more gloves! Works better than soap and water, too - I haven't had orange palms once while using it. I took off one lippie, though, because the pump can be somewhat strange & it gets clogged easily. I've still repurchased it three or four times, though!

Great stuff!! Such a dark color, I love all SUN Labs products! By the way - this stuff is way less expensive at StrictlySunless.com - $23 for the 8 oz bottle - and they have little sample packages you can buy to try it out!
Conditioner -Neutrogena - Triple Moisture daily deep conditioner

Probably one of the best drugstore lines for very dry hair. Smells great, too!
Wow - I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet. Holy Grail material - I've gone through about four bottles. Virtually impossible to streak, even though the lotion is thick (it looks exactly like chocolate pudding). Rose scented, too!
Halo never fails to give me a headache. It's truly the most noxious perfume that I have ever encountered. I worked at VS for a loooong time, and when the Dream Angels scents were introduced there were far fewer perfumes than now. Anyway, customers would get so spray happy with the Halo.... Ugh - instant headache. Even the other SA's who defended Halo at first found it nauseating after a few months.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Rapture EDT or EDP

Ugh. Very mature, heady scent that I personally hate, but it has great staying power. Very strong.
I love this!!! I really like the lemon scent - not overpowering but very fresh. The sand is so much fun and evenly exfoliates.
I love this. Of course, the packaging sucks, and it's impossible to close, but I love it anyway. It smells like my favorites Rock Star and Creamy Candy bath. Since I'm not a huge dusting powder girl, I use it in my sheets, hair, etc. The scent holds longer in my hair and sheets than it does on my body anyway. All around great, long lasting product.
GREAT scrub. I got my BF to use it (and a couple other LUSH products) simply because of the black packaging. Oh, that and the alcohol in it. Anyway, this is a very nice salt scrub. It tingles and exfoliates very well. I use it 2x a week before self tanning. Great stuff!
My favorite Lush soap. Makes the entire bathroom smell yummy, and it's such a cute color!!! It's love.
LOVE this and it's SO CHEAP!!! I love sugar scrubs because they exfoliate well and aren't messy or oily. I've used a very expensive sugar scrub for years now, and although this is a little more diluted than my favorite, it's such a bargin!!! Definitely try it - works great, cute hot pink squeeze tube, and so inexpensive!
Conditioner -Pantene - Full & Healthy Lightweight Conditioning Foam Leave In

This stuff is bad, bad, bad. I got a promotional basket from Procter and Gamble, and this was included in it. It's a leave in foam conditioner that claims to repair styling damage. I found the foam hard to distribute in my hair. While it was air drying, my hair felt sticky and crunchy - like I used way too much gel. When I tried to comb my almost dried hair later, it was impossibly tangly. I find this product very drying, there's too much alcohol in it to be moisturizing in any way. Stay far far away from this stuff.
I had a very mild sunburn on my shoulders, and used this to treat it instead of aloe vera. It's cooling, and it makes your skin very soft and a little less tender. I'm not sure if actually helped my skin heal faster, but it's definitely less sticky and drying than the regular Walgreen's brand aloe vera gel I normally use.
This product's long name is Instant Chocolate Mousse. It has the same rose-y scent as the FB lotion, and the similar dark brown/greenish/gray color guide (which is probably what washed off the previous reviewer). It provides very natural brownish color, but it's not exactly dark. It also fades very quickly - ie: 2 days. The mousse is probably best for lighter complexions, but it is easy to use and smells good, with no fake orange tinge.

MY HG TANNING FOAM. Provides great dark brown color that lasts a long time. Dries quickly, and it's so easy to rub in. I've never streaked with this, never looked orange, and it fades very naturally - no lizard skin. Love love love it.
