Been using this for over a month and I like it. Seems to be helping with acne a bit. Makes my t-zone more oily though which I don't like. Lovely packaging, decent price (~$15 for 250ml).

Very red toned bronze. Perfect amount of shimmer, great smooth texture. Blends out easily. I just can't get bronzers to work for me and have given up after purchasing so many- but this is a gorgeous product.
I wish this wasn't discontinued. My first 'real perfume' I ever had and I still love it. Very yummy beachy scent, a little floral, hard to describe. Strong and long lasting. Packaging sucks on all bottles I had it would squirt out into a straight line instead of a mist/spritz after awhile.

Smells very coconutty, a bit sweet, very nice light summer scent. $12 for 1 or 3 for $24 so it's a decent price. Not very long lasting though but that's ok.

Used one sample packet and the next morning my whole face was broken out and greasy. :(
Smells like comforter bubble bar. Lathers amazingly well on a salux cloth and only a tiny bit is needed. I don't get why a bunch of people say its wasteful and expensive unless they're just mashing it against their skin of course there would be no lather then. With the salux and a small 1 inch cube or less you get a ton of lather and bubbles. Really feel clean after using. Cheaper on the lush uk site than the us site if you're buying online. Cut it up into little bits then put back in the jar, so you can just take a piece out whenever you plan to use, instead of wrestling with a jar of jelly with wet hands.
Yum. Smells exactly like Snowcake soak. Which smells like sweet almond-y marzipan-y cake. Is a bit greasy but soaks in quickly, my hands are so dry and flakey usually and after using this they are so soft and smooth silky. A little goes a long way. Expensive on the US lush site but on the UK site it's a lot cheaper. Would recommend to anyone who likes sweet scents and wants a very moisturizing heavy hand cream.
Meh. Too slick and goopey. Raspberry smells identical to niveas kiss of berry swirl lipbalm. Caramel has a sickening headache inducing quality to it. Tins are cute but the product is too goopey for a tin. Makes lips look white like the crud that collects in corners of mouth from applying too much balm or gloss. Way better less messy lip balms out there.
(I got the blue one which has a slight menthol smell). This is a really nice lip balm, probably the best I've tried and I have tried tons and tons of lipbalms. Very subtle scent. Not overly greasy and not sticky. After one use I could see a difference and my lips were no longer dry, peeling, or cracked. After using everyday once a day for a week my lips look fuller (no this isn't a plumping lipbalm BUT when your lips are dry and dehydrated they don't look as full as when they're properly moisturized). Will probably buy some of the other scents! Found for around $6.50 on eBay (only available in Asian countries but shipping to US only took about a week so I can't complain).
Is this a highlighter or a concealer or a highlighting concealer? It seemed a bit luminizing to me, but did NOT cover anything. Not worth the price. If you don't have barely any undereye circles and are just looking to brighten the undereye area, this may work for you. But if you have any darkness to conceal at all, it will not work. There is almost zero coverage. Also had to twist it up literally 100 times before any product came out-crappy packaging. I think it was $12 or $13? Way high for a drugstore product.
Brows -Tarte - Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse & Brow Brush

I'm really liking this. Looks great if you like bold brows, but I find its harder to make it look more natural (powder is better for natural look IMO). I got rich brown which is a very dark blackish brown with no reddish hues. Very easy to use with brush included but I sometimes use an Anastasia Beverly Hills brush for finer details since the tarte one can be a bit bulky. Not too smudgy and seems to set well, but if you smeared your hand across it, it would probably transfer a bit. Comes off easily with makeup remover. Decent amount for a decent price.
This smells amazing and unlike any perfumes I've smelled before. I love it. Also love the men's version acqua di gio. But the women's one, even with just one spritz, gives me a horrible pounding headache. I don't know why and I hate that it does because I love the scent.. :( Bought twice and ended up returning after one use each time.
I love lush but I'm becoming more disappointed with the more bubble bars I try from them. I don't know if the type of water I have makes them not work as well or what. I used half of this for one bath and there was just a tiny bit of bubbles that disappeared right away. To me that isn't worth the price tag. I usually don't like rose scents but this one is creamy and nice, so I liked it. But it's just not worth it to me to keep buying these bath products anymore. Once I use up my stash I will only be buying for special occasions.
Smells amazing, exfoliates really well, and is very moisturizing/not at all drying. But after using it once, I awoke the next morning to a horrible breakout, pimples all over my face. :( I wish I didn't because it is a lovely product.
Yet another lush product I bought online without ever smelling before, and not being able to use because of the STRONG smell. It smells like chemical floor cleaner! I thought it'd smell slightly salty, ocean-y and fresh but nope not even close. I don't think I have a very sensitive nose but this gave me an instant headache. I can't imagine how strong it smells IN the shower?! Yuck. Smell in person before buying.
