Love this fragrance!! It has very similar notes to flowerbomb but is unique in itself. Doesn't have great sillage or lasting power, I find I have to reapply after 4 hours. The bottle is very pretty but the shape make's it difficult to spray. I think anyone who loves flowerbomb would like this and it's slightly less expensive than flowerbomb.

This starts out with a burst of citrus and then you get the orginial flowerbomb background. Unfortnately the citrus fades very quickly and you're left with a very weak flowerbomb scent. Compared to original Flowerbomb this one is very weak and you would have to reapply every 2 hours to keep the scent going. I would not repurchase because of the staying power...but if they we're to reformulate it to have more citrus and sillage than I would.
This was one of the first things I bought at lush thinking I would use it on my kids. I put it away to let it dry out(was told this helps it last longer) and yesterday I was digging in my bathroom closet and found it. So I thought I would use it myself and try it out. It smells lovely, doesn't lather much and dried my skin out horribly!!!!Maybe I'm just spoiled with my usual phil shower gels but this was awful!! Wish they would revamp this product, keep the smell and add moisturizers. I definately won't be using this on my kids or repurshasing!
I love this scent! I could easily see this being one of my HG fragrances ( I have many!) but the staying power is zilch! I put it on and within an hour I can barely smell it and after two it's completely gone! I said I would buy again only if they came out with a stronger formula or more items to layer with. Very disappointed with this cuz it smells so good!!!!

Today is the first day of using this makeup, so I may have to add a update later. So far so good, it didn't make my skin itch like many other mineral foundations and I was able to get a really good skin color match with natural2. When I read the description of the product and reminded me of smashbox's halo, but a lot less expensive. Still expensive for my wallet but I have a hard time finding products that don't irritate my skin. My only dislikes so far is the scent and the brush it came with. The scent did go away after a couple of hours and I will try a kabuku brush next time I use it. I answered yes to repurchase but only time will tell.
Lotions/ Creams -LUSH - Soft Coeur Massage Bar (The Honeymooner)

I LOVE this massage bar! First of all I'll say I don't use it as intended. I just swipe it across my skin as a moisturizer. I love to use it at night before I go to bed to let the butter's sink into my skin as I sleep. The smell is awesome! My husband always comments on how good I smell when I use this. I wish it was larger and had better packaging but other than that I will repurchase over and over!
I am somewhat disappointed with this bar. It did lather nicely and I love the idea of no packaging but left my hair average looking. Plus the smell to me is very good. I am angry at myself for not just getting the karma bar which smells wonderful. I only bought this one because I have short hair and I don't like to use seperate shampoo/conditioner becuz it tends to weigh my hair down. I think next time I would buy the retro 2 in 1 or the karma bar. Other than those issues it's a great idea!

I just smelled this yesterday and I am in love! It's a refreshing sweet smell. I sampled this and the shimmer one and found this one to be more comforting. The shimmer says to have apricot instead of vanilla. My only problem is the price and size, if it had been a smaller bottle and $15 cheaper I would have purchased one. My Mom also loved it and bought one, so I may have to pop over to her house and borrow occasionally.
I LOVE this color!It's such a pretty blue/green tinted gray with some shimmer. Great for something different but not so drastic as regular gray. Was good with two coats and it's seems to be wearing well. The only thing I would change is the brush, I prefer the ones on the speed dry formula.
First off I have to say I have extremely sensitive skin and got this as a sample with another lush purchase. The SA warned me not to use it on my face, but to use it on my elbows, feet etc. It's been sitting on my bathroom counter for weeks now and tonight I thought I'm going to just put a little bit on a zit and see what happens. It was great! So I started putting this gently on my entire face and rinsed it off. My face felt wonderful and no irritation! My skin felt smooth and refreshed, I even talked my DH into letting me try it on his face! He said he actually liked it too! I definately will be purchasing this one!
Overall this is a good product, I have VERY sensitive skin and wanted a toner to clean my face with. This is non-drying and has a pleasant scent and it didn't cause any new redness or burning. But I HATE the spray bottle packaging! When you try to pump the product onto a cotton ball it leaks out everywhere! I've been just taking the pump out and dipping my cotton ball.

I love this bar!Great scent and not overly greasy. It's a nice pick me up at the end of the day or right after stepping out of the shower. As with the other massage bars I wish they would get a better package.
I love this scent!It's spicy sweet and perfect on my DH! I think I probably love it more than he does! I guess it evokes memories beside just smelling good so that may be why I like it so much. I just bought him a small trial bottle and had wished I'd gotten the full size!
Lotions/ Creams -Gold Bond - Ultimate-Healing Foot Cream

I'm on my second tube of this stuff! It's a great product! After I finished my first tube I tried using Olay foot cream and it sucked! That made my feet dry and ruff again, it undid all the great things the gold bond had fixed. Pretty good price, $5 at wal-mart plus I had a $1 coupon. I just apply after my shower and I've got smooth soft feet!
Yummy! This is a great scent! It smells just like the candy tastes! Only bad thing is you have to purchase with two other 3 in 1's and it's only a 6 oz. size. Hopefully this will come out soon in a larger size.
