I've been using this fantastic foot cream for years! I have had similar results with salon-brand foot creams but this baby takes the cake. Thick, non-greasy, non-waxy and fragrance free, this lotion soothes my feet and leaves them feeling like a baby's bottom for hours after application. I can literally put this foot cream on and go wear a pair of heels right after and I won't slip and slide while I walk. The pump is also fantastic and works great.This stuff is a miracle worker,and for 6 US dollars you can't go wrong. I
This is a review for LUSH's Full of Grace facial serum bar. I have been using this product almost every couple of days for a year now so I have a good idea of how this product works!! It's a little oval- shaped pink bar that looks like a tiny massage bar. It ran me about $13 US dollars. It contains fantastic ingredients like Chamomile Blue oil, capuacu butter and mushrooms for antioxidants and vitamins. It does contain a slight amount of natural perfume from essential oils. I ordered this online and in a week it arrived at my door. I rubbed the bar over my clean skin and rubbed it in while giving myself a facial massage. My skin felt TRULY moisturized and my skin was glowing. I love the feel of slathering creams on my face because my skin is so dry and tight. It is quite oily because it's made of butters, so if you don't like your face to be super moisturized I wouldn't use a lot of this. The next morning, my face had not one spot on it and my skin was glowing like I was photo-shopped!! It was unreal. My fine lines and aggravated patches on my skin were GONE. This makes for a fantastic eye cream and softens wrinkles like magic. I SERIOUSLY wouldn't know what to do without this amazing life-saving product! I must have it in my arsenal or else my skin is unhappy. I've never looked so fantastic in my life and I owe it to this wonderful little bar. With daily use it can last you up to 3 months.. and for only $13?? What a steal!!! I would gladly pay $30 for one bar for what it does for me- it is a literal MIRACLE WORKER and I never talk any products up!! Never in my entire life have I been so impressed with the quality and performance of a product! Whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin, normal skin, aging skin, young skin, WHATEVER-- give this a chance, and you'll become a believer too. My ultimate holy grail product of all time FOR LIFE.
Skincare - Body -Jason Natural Cosmetics - Vitamin E Oil 5000 IU
kaileylovesmakeup 9/4/2012 3:48:00 PM
This is a review for any pure Vitamin E Oil :) I love this stuff and I have used it for years. I use a drop, rub between my palms and scrunch onto the ends of my hair, then smooth the rest on the hair and the ends of my bangs. I use this in place of lotion when my skin is still wet, I smooth a few drops over myself and then dry off and I'm left with soft, non greasy smooth skin. I've been dealing with a very difficult situation and I've noticed my skin has started to become wrinkled from all of the crying, and my skin has become sore and irritated. I dab vitamin E oil on my face and on my eyes to protect/nourish my skin at night, then follow with moisturizer. I wake up with clear skin that isn't clogged and my wrinkles look a lot better! It also creates a barrier so my tears don't sting my face as much. (Wow, so emotional) but this is a great product.. OH, I also use it on stretch marks and scars too!
AOBS is a great product. On the package it says: "Evens out skin tone, reduces redness and improves the health and appearance of your skin, giving a natural healthy glow." I totally agree. I've been using this alongside Ultrabland for the past week and I love it- it smells lovely like lavender and it doesn't appear to contain actual lavender buds. I like to get a bit more than a pea and massage it like a scrub all over my face. My face is very smooth and feels relaxed after. I accidentally forgot my Ultrabland and Skin Drink one night and my skin didn't feel tight at all and had no dead skin on it in the morning from dryness. I am very impressed with this product and will continue to buy but will trade up for Buche De Noel when the holiday season is in swing. I love this stuff! Thanks LUSH
I got this in a haul along with some other things and have used this once. It's a red shampoo puck with two little bits of cinnamon at the top. It smells very strongly of cinnamon and a little of clove. It has a smooth feel on the surface and is slightly melty but only a little. I used this after getting out of the lake and it definitely cleaned my hair very easily. I got my hands wet and rubbed the bar between my hands and sometimes rubbed it on my head but be careful- the bits of cinnamon will tug on your hair. I expected the fragrance to "explode" in the shower with the heat and humidity but it wasn't very strong at all. I could hardly smell the cinnamon to be honest. It didn't really tingle my scalp too much, but my sensitive scalp is a little itchy. I' think it might be from the fact I already shampooed today, but i'm not going to be caught dead not washing my hair after getting out of a lake. I like this product and hope it helps with my shedding hair!
This product is great! I use this after AOBS because my skin is starting to react to Skin Drink. The product comes in two sizes; I got the smallest. For how little you need the smallest size will probably last someone quite a while. I love the smell of this product, a little like honey and beeswax but oh so faintly and naturally. I used Ultrabland on my moist face after cleansing my makeup off and the product was thick but spread easily with the water. It felt coating, a little like a creamy petrolatum but more pleasant and natural! I love the smell of it on my face, it's very gentle. After wiping off with damp cotton wool my face is baby smooth and feels like a dream with no itchiness or irritation. This product reminds me of an ultra natural Pond's cream with no artificial crud. It's absolutely fantastic, I definitely recommend this products even for oily skin. While I have dry skin a friend of mine is going to try the Ultrabland with me because with oily skin you combat it with oil. The reason skin produces excess is because we use drying artificial and harsh ingredients on our skin. I think this would really help anyone with inflamed skin! Buying more tomorrow even and I have only used this once
I love this product and I haven't actually bought it yet but I'm thinking about it. I tried my friend's bubblegum scrub and I absolutely loved it- it smells and tastes SO good! It is perfect for use before using lipstick. If anyone is contemplating getting it you should because this is different from your ordinary sugar lip scrub. I've only used plain sugar and honey to use on my lips but this REALLY is different- seriously! There is such a difference in the way my lips feel after using this compared to the sugar and honey scrub I used to make. I know it seems expensive for the price but you only need a tiny bit (think size of a pea) and it really is quite incredible! I can't believe the difference in my lips.. you should go out and buy it. I think I will too. (:
Shampoo -L'Oreal - EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner
kaileylovesmakeup 8/1/2012 1:18:00 PM
I love this product! I have a very sensitive and dry scalp and very dry coarse hair that can't handle harsh sulfates. I don't use any products that contain silicone anymore (I use LUSH's R&B instead) and this is perfect seeing as I recently colored my hair. I have quite long hair that needs only 6 more inches of growth to touch my tailbone. I only use this product on my scalp and I use a water rinse and then a squirt of conditioner for the ends and then my R&B after. I'm a little surprised at the person who said they need 20 pumps of this stuff to feel clean. I guess everyone has different hair needs but I'd be damned to spend 8 bucks on a bottle of this and use 20 pumps! This stuff is great but the smell was a little bit hard to handle at first because it's very strong. To me it smells like Bath and Body Work's Twilight Woods and I LOVE it! I definitely love this stuff and will most likely buy this for a very long time but I want to try their nourishing shampoo for a deeper cleaning (like if I swim in the lake and get sort of mucky) I love this!
Bronzed Brown (or Brazilian Brown) looks like a rich golden medium brown on the package. I had naturally dark brown hair with golden tints to it before I dyed my hair with this hair color. On the back of the package it states that it's hi-lift and even the darkest brown hair (which my hair was not) would be lifted to that gorgeous golden shade. I wanted to have medium golden brown hair and ended up with a fake almost whorish burgundy color. My boyfriend followed the instructions exactly and did an excellent job of doing it but the color is just horrendous- and my boyfriend is a pastry chef and is talented with tedious tasks so I know it wasn't because of him. I don't know if someone switched out the dye as a joke or what, but the color is just not what I expected. Now I look like a whore with purple hair. Great.
While this may only be the second day of using this product I can already say I've had much better luck with Skin Drink than Celestial. Celestial for some reason broke me out and made my skin inflamed but Skin Drink soothes my skin and actually sinks in deep into the skin. There isn't a feeling much nicer than your skin feeling AND actually being plump, smooth and moisturized. My skin drinks this stuff up! I feel beautiful and the light wrinkles I have seem to be smoothed down a little. There is no irritation (surprisingly because Celestial is meant for sensitive skins) and my skin looks radiant and....clear??? YES! Not only has Skin Drink replenished my long lost moisture Celestial couldn't do, but it also cleared up my topical dermatitis on my face that Celestial caused!! I wonder why that is, considering Skin Drink lists Perfume at the bottom of the list and Celestial is without perfume, which I am allergic to. Whatever is going on, all I can say is it's MAGIC! This performs as well as Hope in a jar for Dry Skin to me and is half the price. I think I will be sticking with Skin Drink for quite some time!!! Lovely product! And it really isn't as greasy as some others may say. I would also recommend waiting 5-10 minutes to apply makeup after this as it is rich but it all depends on how dry your skin is, you be the judge. However I declare this amazing!! Also I love Skin Drink because it doesn't contain Lavender like Imperialis does. Lavender is cytotoxic (it kills skin cells) so scrubbing my face and applying something cytotoxic seems like the worst idea ever!! I am happy with my Skin Drink. Some other MUA users say Skin Drink smells like seseme, soy sauce and other things. I would definitely agree about the seseme scent as Seseme oil is the second ingredient but I smell no soy sauce. I personally don't mind the smell (I love Tahini, seseme paste) so it's fine with me. The black pot is so-so as it isn't the most hygenic. I wish all lush moisturizers came in the tester pumps they carry in stores! This doesn't affect how I feel about the performance of the product, as a lot of people judge Lush's products for the packaging and not even how the products work!!
As a sufferer of very sensitive skin I figured that this moisturizer would do the job after I ran out of Philosophy's Hope in a Jar. I was wrong! The morning after I used it I noticed that I had tiny little red bumps all over my skin. My skin was a little itchy and tender but I figured that my skin would get used to it after a couple of days. I wanted this moisturizer to work out so badly but I'm nearly at the end of the pot and my skin still hasn't gotten any better and I'm considering taking it back. I want to use another moisturizer of theirs but they all have fragrance except Celestial and that really irritated me. I love the natural ingredients in their products compared to drugstore products with random chemicals I have difficulty pronouncing. I only wish this worked as well as the chemically crap!!
I was so excited to try this product but I was really disappointed. I have bra-strap length thick and wavy hair. I used 1/4th of the pot and it made my hair shiny, but actually more dry and frizzy than without. I had to use R&B to smooth it down. It felt healthier but looked like crap. I don't know if I would buy this again...
Conditioner -Matrix - Biolage Smooththerapie Deep Smoothing Conditioner
kaileylovesmakeup 3/2/2012 11:02:00 PM
This was a great conditioner! I loved the results this gave me. At the time I had thick shoulder-length hair that was really dry and always has been. The price was okay, ($16 for an 8 oz bottle) and the smell was nice. I didn't have the matching shampoo at the time, but this conditioner is one of my very favorites close to my heart out of the 30 or so I've tried. I absolutely LOVE the feeling it gave my hair. Even while quite thin, it moisturized so well and left my hair virtually frizz-free, luscious and hydrated to the max without being greasy, but perfectly glossy like hair in a commercial for products. I love this one so much
I didn't like this soap when I first got it, it was too sickeningly sweet to me. I thought it was a much more subtle sweet scent. After using it in the shower I fell in love. It's like a vanilla bubblegum cherry white fudge strawberry soda smell. Sorry for the long description but I smell all those scents in this soap, really! Since it's a creamy soap, it's frothy and more moisturizing than say, Bohemian soap. It also melts rather quickly because it's such a creamy soap which is a shame. The smell doesn't last on me after my shower which is a total disappointment seeing as a lot of other people complained of it lasting too long! Maybe I got a weak batch? Either way, I will buy this until it is no longer sold. I love you Rock Star!
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar for Dry, Sensitive Skin
kaileylovesmakeup 1/24/2012 12:45:00 AM
I bought a perfume on Sephora online and got Hope in a Jar for normal skin as a sample. The lavender smell was strong but I really like it because I love herbal scents. I loved the way my skin felt so soft and supple and appeared to glow. I noticed though that it wasn't rich enough. So my boyfriend went to Sephora and got me THIS moisturizer and I love it. It had more moisture in it than the other version of this for normal skin. It made my skin so soft and silky and I loved it. It was like my skin drank it up! However after 5 months of using this, it doesn't really seem to be as affective as I still need more moisture. I'm thinking about using Lush's Celestial or Skin Drink after this runs out.
