Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Passionfruit Body Butter
bnm5077 1/27/2013 10:58:00 PM
I honestly don't know why there seem to be so many bad reviews on this product! Here's the background story: I got this body butter and the papaya body butter for $5 each and free shipping!!!! Here's the kicker, the post office tracker said my package got returned so I called and the person at The Body Shop said it did so I got a refund, but the package arrived the next day! So I guess I technically didn't pay anything. Anyway, this smells awesome in the tub. It's fresh and sweet and smells like you could eat it! However, when I put it on my skin it only smells for a couple minutes then it goes away. That's okay for me, since I like to layer perfume with it. I would buy it again, but only if it was $5. It's a wonderful moisturizer but i wouldn't pay $20 for it normally because I would like to try other scents first. And I actually probably wouldn't pay $20 for any body moisturizer since I'm HUGE bath and body works fan and they usually have amazing coupons. But this was a great purchase to start trying Body Shop products.
Skincare - Body -The Body Shop - Cocoa Butter Creamy Body Wash

This is the grossest body was I have ever used! It smells like chemicals, diapers, and a little bit of cigarette smoke. It lathers nice, but I just can't get past the smell. The worst part is that it lingered on my skin after my shower. I'm trying to exchange it so hopefully they will let me, or else it will just go to waste. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
I absolutely love this color! It's greenish blue and really unique. The formula is awesome - 2 coats and your done. I add China Glaze Fast Forward top coat and it dries quickly and has awesome shine. The HUGE problem is that when you remove this color, it leaves your fingers stained bad. I tried hard to get all the green tint off my fingers but nothing worked. However, it went away in a day. I would repurchase this, but only after I try all the other colors!
This stuff is awesome! My hair is so damaged from blow drying, straightening everyday, and coloring so I've been desperate for something to make my hair stop breaking and less frizzy. This does the trick! My hair is so soft after I dry it and I've notices much less broken hair and frizzies after straightening. It adds great shine and smells good. I would definitely repurchase! The bottle sucks though, but I can deal with it for the good price and great quality.
This color is so pretty! It's a neon pink orangey color and it's so bright and fun, but oh my god is it hard to put on! It NEVER brushes on evenly, the formula is watery, and it takes like 3 coats to fully cover the nail. I only deal with it because the color is so great. It also chips. Really easily. Even using base coat and top coat it chips the next day. I gave it a 4 ONLY because the color is so awesome, but if I were basing it on formula I would give it a 2 or 3. I wish the brush was a little easier to use, thats why I gave it a 3 for packaging quality. I would repurchase this but only because I like the color.
Top/Base Coats -China Glaze - Fast Forward Top Coat

I bought this recently because my old OPI top coat dried up and got all thick and hard to brush. I bought it because it was fast drying, and that really lived up to my expectations! It dries so quickly! As far as protecting nail polish, it doesn't impress me that much. I painted my nails 2 nights ago and I haven't worked since then (I work in retail so hangers really do damage to nail polish), yet my polish is already wearing off. It's not very noticeable but I feel like I already have to change my polish. It also kind of shrinks over the polish but, again, that's not noticeable unless you are really looking at it. I gave it a 4 overall because I feel like it could protect polish a lot longer but it did dry quickly and makes your nails really really shiny. It's easy to brush on and I paid $4.99 for it so I can't complain about price. I'd probably buy it again just because it was so cheap and I love the shine.
I was so excited to get my first China Glaze! I always got this color at the salon when I had acrylics, so I was really happy to buy my own. I gave it a 2 for price because I had a coupon that made it $5 so it was affordable. This color goes on very matte and dries really quickly. It looks like pink highlighter at first. I used OPI base coat and used 3 coats of the color. I thought it was hideous until I put OPI top coat on and It turned out wonderful! It looks like the color it was at the salon and not a cheap nail polish. It's now really shiny and really neon and bright! I guess because it's neon it turns out matte but nothing a top coat can't fix. I went out and got Flip Flop Fantasy today and I'm really excited to use it.
Conditioner -Bath and Body Works - Moonlight Path Volumizing Conditioner

This conditioner is just as amazing as the shampoo. Smells awesome, works awesome. I have long thick hair so I have to use a lot of conditioner to get a comb through it (and the shampoo makes my hair feel knotty) but that's okay since they are usually always on sale and more product means more scent!
Shampoo -Bath and Body Works - Moonlight Path Volumizing Shampoo
bnm5077 5/30/2012 5:31:00 PM
I absolutely love this shampoo! It smells so good I can't even explain! I find myself lathering this shampoo in my hair for SO LONG in the shower because it smells so good! I got these as part of buy 3 get 3 free so it was a good deal. I have thick hair so I wasn't sure about the "volumizing" part but it doesn't make it frizzy or huge. It also leaves a wonderful scent, which my boyfriend compliments every day! I've even smelled it in his hair after he showers at my apartment lol. The only problem is that it makes my hair dye fade which would be expected since it's not a color shampoo. Once I get my hair touched up again I will alternate color shampoo with this shampoo as a special treat.
I give this a 4 because the scent is really good but it was one of those scents that I just wanted to finish but instead it burned FOREVER! I gave it a 3 for price because I got a pack of 2 medium jars of Pink Sands and Sun and Sand in Christmas packaging for $15!!!!!! $15 for two medium jars is awesome since yankee tends to charge an arm and a leg for a candle. I probably wouldn't buy it again because there are a lot of scents I like better but it did smell nice, just took too long to get rid of. If only the scents I absolutely love would seem to take that long too!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Moonlight Path Body Lotion

I'm on the fence with the lotion version of Moonlight Path. Sometimes it comes off flowery and overpowering (those are the times I like it but am not crazy about it) and other times it comes off soapy and fresh. Those times I love it! I like to wear it after I shower after a workout or being outside in the heat all day. It makes me feel really clean and fresh and is a relaxing scent. I prefer to use this at night because my sisters and boyfriend hate this scent so I usually don't wear it in public. I probably would buy it again with one of those spend $10 get a signature product free coupon (this being the free coupon). It's worth a try if you want something flowery and clean smelling. But I would recommend to get a travel size first since so many people don't like it.
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - Moonlight Path Shower Gel
bnm5077 4/11/2012 4:59:00 PM
I love using this in the shower after I work out or have been outside in hot weather all day. It is such a clean scent and smells up the whole bathroom and it really makes me feel totally clean and fresh. I can smell it on my skin long after the shower and it is also so relaxing. I love using it at night too because it's so relaxing.
I used to use It cosmetics brow power. I would get 2 for $34 and I got so sick of spending that kind of money. I decided to try this and I'm glad I did! My eyebrows stop at the arch so the super tiny point makes it so easy to fill in the rest. The small tip allows you to use as much or as little as you want. The formula is pretty creamy so it smudges kinda easily but I'm not really touching my eyebrows ever. Even if it smudges it's easy to go back over the line once or twice to make it darker. Overall, it's a good product for a good price. It makes my eyebrows look natural since there is a spool at the end and the color is perfect.
The smell of this is strong, but so good! Not normal Bath and Body Works little girl scent. However, too much of this can be bad. I loved the shower gel because even after I got out of the shower I could smell it for literally a few hours. I would sometimes layer it with the Dark Kiss triple moisture body cream but I would sometimes get a headache from it being so strong. I recommend using the shower gel then putting the cream on your legs (my legs get so much drier than anywhere else!), that way their covered by pants if its winter or fall. Overall, the smell is dark and sexy just don't overdo it to save yourself and anyone around you from a migraine.
LOVE THIS! When it first came out I smelled it and hated it, then one day I decided to smell it again and loved it! So weird. Anyway, I got the shower cream with one of this "buy $10 and get a free item" coupon. I probably wouldn't have spent the money on it but the coupon was awesome so I figured why not get it. Soon I went back with another one of those coupons and got the lotion. It's perfect because it's just strong enough and lasts long and it doesn't smell like a ten year old (no offense to the ten year olds!). If they didn't always come out with new scents to try and stop selling the old ones, I would stick with this one.
