While some soaps draw you to them with their appearance (Miranda) or reputation (HIWTK), Sexy Peel has already mugged your nasal cavity and hypnotized you with his bad-boy citrus punch in the face. Orange! Lemon! Grapefruit! Lime! This is like a California sorbet of a soap, clean and fruity scent. Absolutely divine. The peels are rather small, so exfoliation is not so rough in this affair, instead leaving your skin glowing clean. When around he will not irritate even those of you more sensitive, but always welcomes a new clean smile to your face. However, after taking this bad boy of soaps home and get all cozy, you realize that he is a skintight fella-no really. If you have normal-dry skin, prepare to rinse the astringency off and have him leave you with skin literally squeaking after taking all of you natural oil. Also, when he is away his scent will not linger for your fond memories of sunshine orchards. Having raped you of any oil for the scent to stay in this makes sense. As time wear on he will become less reliant, melting easily at the last minute when you need him. In the end, the shelf life of your relationship with him will not last more than two years, in which he will turn into a true stinker. The bottom line? If you got oily skin are the kind of Lushie who enjoys clarifying skin and long walks in the summer sun, have I got a match for you! If not, be weary of what your mother always told you, and beware the infamous bad boy!
Give me "G" give me an "I" give me a "LITTER"! Then add excessive exclamatory punctuation!!! Goodness gracious, this is not for the faint of heart. Tinker Bells who dislike anything subtle as for shimmer, rejoice! While this will give you an illustrious aura in evening, you may look like a vampire who's name shall not be spoken in daylight. Shimmy shimmy is a WONDERFUL product for going out and accessorizing your skin without stabbing it with jewelry and needling in a design, but just as eye-catching. The glitter is extremely fine, but catches light well to give you a very powerful rose-gold glow without the texture of Lustre, which I find a little prone to migration. The smell is accurate as vanilla and ylang ylang, but I find the clary-sage to fade in time. Timeless and feminine aroma I will catch lingering throughout the night. For those of you dolls (and hey, maybe even guys, glitter and I do not discriminate) that have dry or sensitive skin like yours truly, you may find that with time Shimmy Shimmy will dry and be a little more abrasive, leaving a sticky residue. To fight this as it usually takes me a while to go through an entire bar, I put on a light moisturizer before hand (layer this with any bannana scents, and it smells DIVINE.) You can control your application of this as it is in a bar, but trust me that a little goes a Swedish mile, so you get great value for your money. Caution your storage, this glitter will take over like tribbles!
This was quite a pleasant floral surprise to someone usually in dislike of floral. This can probably be attributed to the fact that the marigold scent is not exactly marigold. I know the times claimed vanilla as the addition, but I detect a very strong musk. Some of my other LUSH products unfortunately absorbed the strong scent when stored together with Tiny Hands, so I now keep my solid lotion in my drawers to make all my clothes smell yummy. If you keep this little beauty away from heat, it will last well worth your money. Tiny hands is a great product for those of you in cooler climates with a tendency to get dry/Scylla-like skin. You have to be careful on storage-you may just discover a hot mess in your car. At first application the scent is very heady and possibly offputting for you sensitive guys and dolls, but after melting into skin the greasy oils are textured out with the lovely talc and you get smooth and beautifully moisturized-not greasy-hands. Oily skinned girls do not despair, the talc is great for any overactive apocrine glands without clogging suffocated pores on your legs.

The bottom line before the rant? You get what you pay for, and makeup gurus and newbies alike, this is a dirt cheap concealer: and boy can you tell. I have extremely fair and dry skin, and you can see blue plexuses of veins under my skin, especially by my tear ducts. But, somehow under my eyes it manages to cake up something terribly obvious from even afar and still offers no coverage in any sense of the the word. A warning to ladies who love "long lasting" products: these tend to dry out your skin and age it in time. You are far better off with three hour touch-ups then a 24 hour concealer that wreaks havoc to drying out skin. It has no redeeming qualities as an under-eye concealer, but to cover slight redness in-between my brows it was the closest shade in three drugstores I could find ("ivory"), it scrapes by two stars. Still, it has to be heavily blended and the area underneath moisturized well first, I would recommend using a concealer brush (I adore most all things Bobbi Brown) to apply this, as the applicator is highly unsanitary in it's potential to carry conjunctivitis.
