Oil-free..that doesn't mean much, within two days I had the hugest zits I've had in a long time..We're talking flashback to High School here. I couldn't even go out. Oily Skin gals, take care because there's something in here that clogs pores. I gave it to my mom, who has really dry skin and it works for well her.
I got this pretty cheaply off Ebay..in chai latte. I love the smell/taste! It's not my favorite color, a little too taupish on me ( wish it were a tad darker and pinker). But I'll keep it just for the novelty. I don't think I'll buy it again because the color selection isn't that great.
Treatments (Eye) -Avon - ANEW PERFECT Eye Care Cream
catrpillrgirl 4/14/2003 1:34:00 PM
I've used two tubes of this because my sister gave me some. It's definitely decent, but it does sting my eyes. It's okay if I'm real careful with the application, but if it gets below onto my cheekbone, my skin gets irritated and breaks out there. The tube lasts forever, but would last even longer if too much didn't squirt out every time. I have yet to find a HG eye cream, though:(
Skincare - Body -Garden Botanika - Almond Creme bodycare products
catrpillrgirl 4/14/2003 11:52:00 AM
I love this stuff, it's a perfect almond scent..which I adore. Straight up almond, and not foody.It's rare since most almond scents have cherry also. I don't even know how old this is because it's not the new bottle. Yet,it still feels fresh and I use it all the time.I do hate their new packaging! I guess they're trying to look more "sophisticated" but I liked it better when they were more fun and Bodyshop-like. I hope I can find a replacement for this because I hate that the stores are gone, and I went on their website and really hate how they changed their image into a corporate, boring one.
I got Mocha, which is very nice..a pinky brown or brownish pink, i can't decide. The texture is great, creamy and matte..doesn't wear forever, but then again, nothing does. It does wear a decent length of time. Unfortunately I don't like any of the other colors, too light, or frosted.
I give it points for originality, after all it was at the forefront of the whole citrus scent craze. I liked it at first, but the citrus is too overpowering..and everyone knows when someone's wearing Happy,it's that distinctive..I know whenever I pass someone who's wearing it. So, yes..it is strong enough for other's to smell it, but to me it kind of rob's a woman of mystery..It's nicer if people wonder what you're wearing. ( Well,I do wear VS Endless Love, and you can detect that from a mile away, too ;))
I got this in a swap and it even seemed a lot more full than she said it was :D...so far, this is the nicest vanilla I've ever smelled! And it does last awhile, some TBS scents don't. It wasn't incredibly foody to me-that sometimes puts me off. It's just a wonderful and warm smell. I want the home oil, too!
Shave Products -Alba Botanica - Bengal Spice Cream Shave

I said I would buy it because I'd buy the other scents. I'd really like to know if I'm missing something because no matter what store I've seen this in..I cannot detect a scent..and I sniff it everytime. It just smells like sunscreen or something. I've sniffed it about four different times, at four different places. Does this have a distinctive scent?
Hair Styling Tools -CCB-Paris - Maniatis clip rollers
catrpillrgirl 4/1/2003 4:02:00 PM
these rollers are great, very cute and also functionable! I had to get two packs, and they just roll my whole head of hair-perfect! You get two different sizes. They're easy to clip, and long enough so that the ends of your hair don't stick out like with some others.(My hair is to my collarbone, I don't know about very long hair.) I got these discounted with one of CCB's never ending promotions, which was a bonus :)
This doesn't do anything for oily scalp/dandruff, but it makes the rest of my hair ( not my oily scalp)very soft and nice. It's nicer than Pantene's dandruff shampoo, which doesn't do much either.I would recommend the fructis line for anyone with normal,dry, or just slightly oily hair. I've yet to find a dandruff shampoo that really works, but maybe that's just me..
What I have is the cologne.My husband bought me this for Christmas three years ago, and it's just as strong as ever..the scent hasn't changed a bit. This is very concentrated so a few squirts is all that's needed, thus it lasts forever. I have put this on in the a.m., gone to bed and still had it on the next afternoon with only minimal fading. It seems that VS fragrances lasts the longest time. It smells great, but it may be a bit sweet for some people. I don't know the notes, but to me it is a sweet, wet, fruity smell. I said I'd buy it again, but I don't think I'll run out anytime soon, and I also have Jeweled citrus, which I like even more. I love the VS Garden collections!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Marina Marinof C'est Rien Que Du Bonheur EDP
catrpillrgirl 3/24/2003 2:39:00 AM
If you like to smell like a strawberry, this is for you. The strawberry and raspberry smells overpower any others. It's like when you were a kid eating red candies, like Jolly Ranchers. I'm not overly fond of berries myself, gets too sweet, fast. But if you like berries..that is..a lot,try this-but don't pay full price, get it as a promo.On the plus side this is one gorgeous red bottle, I almost want to keep it just for the bottle. The nesting doll idea is cute, too.
Lotions/ Creams -The Healing Garden - zzztherapy lotion with chamomile
catrpillrgirl 3/21/2003 8:15:00 PM
I don't think this has anything to do with sleep, but it is a nice scent...I can smell the orange and vanilla, it smells kind of like a creamscicle-reminds me of being a kid! The scent is strong, though so it might mix with your perfume. I'd get tired of the scent if I wore it everyday, it's so sweet. My hands do feel soft for a while after I put it on. I still haven't find my miracle lotion, but at this price it's a bargain, especially the travel size-which has lasted forever! Nice to keep in the car..One other thing about THG, it doesn't smell chemically like Calgon.
..and they do nothing at all for your lashes..
I do love this, as well as it's creator, Isabella. I was intrigued when I heard that she was going to use basil predominantly in her perfume. It's a very clean scent. I don't use it everyday because the scent itself is sometimes a bit strong on my skin. (One of those I-can-smell-it-on-me-at-all- times scent.) Definitely one of my faves, a keeper.
