I don't understand WHY this works on my acne-prone skin but it DOES! I started out with Clinique using the acne cleanser, it was WAY too drying. Then I switched to the System 3 cleanser, and this was still far too drying, so I switched to the formula for dry skin. Still bad. I decided to try this on a whim, and ordered a small sample size of eBay. I was hooked. After a week all of my huge zits were GONE. I used to have cystic acne, and this combined with my Clarisonic have completely cleared it up. I also attribute my BC as well, but these two have really regulated my skin. I LOVE IT! I don't even care that its 20 bucks, if it works, I will continue to spend it. The only complaint I have is that I wish it was in a pump form, but that's just me being picky.
I LOVE my clarisonic mia. I literally was on the fence about it for a year, both because of price and my skin type. I have very acne prone skin, I was on accutane at one point and just recently had been going through a huge, horrible change in my skin. It came to the point some nights I had to slap neosporin and bandages on my zits to help with redness. Literally, the next day after using this I FELT a difference. Within two weeks all of my zits were gone, and now I rarely get anything. I have a small zit on my chin, but it is no bigger than a pea, and not red! I notice no irritation with this product, it's simply amazing. It takes off my makeup like nothing else and feels like a dream. Definetly happy I made the investment! I also recommend buying this product from the skinstore.com. I bought it when they had a 20% code going on, as well as when ebates.com had a %12 percent cash back. I essentially paid only 100 dollars for the mia. AMAZING!!

Love it. Has zero staying power though. I only have the rollerball, picked it up on a whim during last years semi-annual sale. Think I'm gonna pick it up in full size this year though!
Its very creamy, and goes on so smooth ... but it just doesnt stay on. I have to set it with a black eyeshadow, and it will stay but thats the only downfall.
Bath Treatments -LUSH - Bathos Bubble Bar ] [DISCONTINUED]

The most bubbles I've ever gotten from a LUSH bubble bar are from this bad boy here. It was such a relaxing bath, and the smell from this bar is to DIE for. Love it! Wish it was bigger though, I can usually only get two baths out of it.
Got this on recommendation of my MA at mac. First off, the color was so off. NC shades in this range are SO YELLOW. Ugh. Second, although it was supposed to be good for dry skin, it actually accentuated my dry patches and flaked up so bad. It didnt blend AT ALL and made my skin break out into little bumps around my chin. I took it back and got the mineralized satinfinish, which is going MUCH better for me. Only positive is it actually did feel good on, it just didnt LOOK good on lol.
Makes lots of bubbles, but i honestly cant smell it in the bath. Maybe because I pair it with the wrong bath bomb? I dunno ... I still enjoy the bubbles, and its got to be the best bang for your buck, you can break this into so many pieces.
LOVE IT. I actually bought this on a whim when I went to ULTA today. I looked at my skin in the mirror and noticed my acne was pretty red. With permission from a worker there, I took a cotton swap and put some on one of my big ol zits. Literally minutes after, it went down from a fire engine red flare up to a nice pink shade. It was unreal, and it also made my skin feel a lot cooler and less irritated.
I was expecting this to be kind of a very dark purple on the nails, but it just looks kinda black. However, I DO love it. It's a softer way to have blackish dark nails, and I actually do like how it looks on. It took me 3 coats to get it to the true shade, which is the first time ive had to do that with an OPI nailpolish.
I LOVE this stuff. I got it three days ago, and literally ... it has already changed my skin. I used to use the Proactiv Sulfur mask, and that worked pretty well. But what that didnt do was soothe my irritated skin. My huge pimples have already diminished, and some are completely gone! It also makes me face feel really nice and fresh. When it dries, you can't even tell its on your face so it is very comfortable to use before sleep.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

Love em. I wish they were a bit bigger though, (what can I say, I get pretty oily ...ewwww) But yeah. I do enjoy that you can see all the oil you are lifting off, it lets me know its doing its job!
LOVE IT. This is my new HG shower gel for the morning. I was looking for a nice "wake you up" scent from LUSH, and for a while Whoosh was doing that. I still love Whoosh, but I normally put a chunk of it in my loofah before the shower, and honestly I would just forget sometimes. Slammer is amazing, it smells of lemon, lime and grapefruit, and to me it smells like a southern comfort and lime drink. It's awesome, and it lathers like a dream. Seriously, of all the LUSH shower gels and jellies I have tried it lathered the most and it left my skin SO smooth which I wasnt expecting since it had such citrusy scents. I wish this was in the stores, but I will definetly be making online orders specifically for this bad boy from now on.
I LOVE this stuff :) I normally would never spend so much on a scrub, but I will from now on! I have to admit, the price is pretty steep, but it works. The scent is so amazing, I love how it smells like a margarita and how citrusy it is. The consistency is great, I love the creamyness of the scrub. If this were in a tube container I would have given it a 5 for packaging, but YES I know LUSH is all for being environmentally friendly, so I will give them that. It would just be a lot easier to use in the shower for me personally if it were to come in a tube. Use this with AOBS on occasion, its FABULOUS! :D
oh my GOD I love this stuff!!!! I got this as a sample, and will most definetly get this in full size. Its just enough exfoliation for me, and doesnt scrape off my face! It leaves my face moisturized but clean feeling after I am done. My only gripe is it is SUPER messy, but I use it in the shower so it isn't a problem. I definetly recommend this!
Whoa. After hearing all the "rave" over this scent, i decided I needed to know what it was all about. When I recieved my LUSH package, I had this, wiccy and a few other scents in the box. I thought the overpowering scent was the Wiccy. I was wrong. As soon as I took a shower with The Olive Branch, I felt as if I had inhaled puffs of smoke, and my stomach felt queasy. I dont normally say such negative things about a scent, but wow this stuff seriously smelled like a campfire at the bottom of my shower! I would not repurchase this, but I still love Lush products .... this scent was just not for me.
