i read all the good reviews of this on makeup alley and had to buy it!i first put it on my hand and i was really dissapointed i was like oh...this is it? but anyway i carried on and drove to work and kept thinking what smells so nice?it was my hand! one you rub this in it smells beautiful so warm and comforting and quite strong too which i like!i definatley would re buy this!
I love this. I use it as a body moisturiser as I would be worried it would be too heavy for my face. First of all it smells lovely, so comforting. It is very thick and a little hard to rub in at first but as it warms up it gets much easier. I put it on at night and wake up with lovely baby soft skin. The best bit is though even though it is thick it doesn't leave a horrible heavy greasy texture on the skin!
Lip Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Figs & Rouge Wild Cherry

oh dear oh dear oh dear. Well Figs & Rouge lip balm products are very good let me say that, they are all organic and contain no petrolium. The geranium and rambling rose are lovely scents. Now the Wild Cherry. I love cherry and I love lip balms so I had to have this. what a mistake that was. It is vile. It does nto smell anything like Cherry. I can't say it isnt a good lip balm, but i physically can not stomach the smell and taste on my lips. so dissapointed in this :(
there is no body lotion that smells as good as this! the whole johnsons baby range is just perfect. this soothes calms and moisturises all while smelling gorgeous
this is a review for the gel oil which has chamomile in it. i find this stuff to be AMAZING. i am a body moisturiser freak...buy hundreds of different products and never stick to any. Now i love baby oil and probably prefer the smell of it to this but i find the oil gel to be longer lasting and you have less chance of breaking your neck in the shower as it doesnt spill out everywhere! i put this on all over while iv just turned off the shower, and my body feels so soft right until i next get a shower. this is so cheap yet in my opinion is nearly perfect for keeping your body soft. i hate feeling greasy thats really the only flaw but i put this stuff on at night so im too busy sleeping to notice!
ok lypsyl cherry lip balm. i wouldnt care if this stuff was rubbish because the smell is amazing! i honestly have never smelt a nicer lip balm! its dirt cheap and available everywhere. in my opinion much better than a lot of lip balms that are much more expensive. the only downside to it i feel is that it goes on a little pasty thick?if that is the best way to describe it? however it still doesnt bother me. i always have a little stick of it with me and while yes i will use other lipbalms this little stick is always around and will always be used when needed!
ah tea tree oil! i actually could not do without this. i have forever had bad skin...well skin that permantly has a couple of spots, so annoying. i have tried everything, expenisve brands, inexpensive brands, miracls gels...nothing ever works. Then i started using tea tree oil.....and it works!! i put a little dab on at night and wake up the next morning with much much clearer skin, everyone comments on that fact. it also doesnt dry out my skin or break my skin out more which is what seems to happen with other spot fighting products. The smell is strong but i love it, it smells like it should be working! the only thing i will ever use on spots from now on
Lip Treatments -Smith's Rosebud Salve - Smith's Rosebud Salve
lauren5millar 2/23/2012 6:22:00 AM
ok i have to review this lip balm. I purchased it after I took an allergic reaction to lanisoh lanolin that i had used on my lips, very sad about that! This salve smells beautiful, however its probably not for everyone. To me it smells like babies rather than roses. I like the smell of babies! it glided on my lips and feels much smoother and moisturising than the likes of vaseline which i find to be heavy and goopy. This is really comforting and my lips agree!
so dissapointed in this, i had read all the amazing reviews and couldn't wait to buy this to use as a lipbalm. I am so confused and do not know what has happened but i used this on my lips for 2 nights before i went to sleep and have woken up witk swollen, cracked, red, burnt lips. terrible. i must be allergic to one of the ingredients thats all i can think of. very dissapointed as it seemed to be some sort of miracle for everyone else. back to searching for my number one lip balm :(
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - 24 Hours Ultra Rich Face Cream
lauren5millar 7/20/2011 9:21:00 AM
amazing moisturiser. i have terribly dry skin and this is the only cream that has actually left my skin soft and taken away the stingy tight feeling after a shower. I also have very sensitive skin and this is so gentle it doesnt break me out. my boyfriend thinks it smells like a baby, which i love its so comforting. for such a rich cream i am amazed it does not leave my skin feeling greasy at all and is even brilliant in the summer and under makeup , i couldnt recommend more
Liquid -Max Factor - Xperience Weightless Foundation
lauren5millar 1/18/2011 10:47:00 AM
ok so far i think i love this foundation, it gives a lovely smooth even coverage and it doesnt slide off your face through the day. it also smells very nice!i like the tube it comes in its nice and flat and fits easily into your makeup bag. i have broke out a little bit and i am worried its this foundation..then again i have also been using new skin care products which i have replaced so i am hoping my face clears up asap and has nothing to do with this foundation because i would like to continue to use this. as for the coverage...i would say its buildable. if you want a natural look then one layer of it would be perfect and if you are going out or prefer a heavier look then you would just add some more. the good thing about this foundation is it doesnt cake and you dont end up looking either like a wax work or a mask!
Gels/Soaps -Philosophy - Pure Grace Foaming Bath & Shower Cream
lauren5millar 1/18/2011 10:23:00 AM
when using this shower cream you feel so clean in the shower!! its so fresh and clean scented i love it, i think its beautiful, amazing grace would be my favourite but this is a close second
Fragrances -Philosophy - Amazing Grace Set- Cologne and Lotion
lauren5millar 1/18/2011 10:22:00 AM
ok i love this, its my favourite of all the Grace products, and i always get comments on how i smell lovely when i wear this, its so girly and just very very nice!
Shampoo -John Frieda - Luxurious volume full splendor
lauren5millar 1/18/2011 10:19:00 AM
hmm bit surprised by the negative comments for this shampoo. i have very thin hair and this is the first volume shampoo i have tried and i think its really good, it does add volume to my hair when i blow dry it that i would never of had before. i wasnt expecting a lot because shampoo is not a miracle worker i didnt think it was going to suddenly give me a head full of thick hair, but i do notice a difference it cleans my hair well makes it shine and smells nice!
ok this concealer is good i find for covering under eye dark circles, but its not really all that brilliant for covering spots unfortunaley, i would keep buying it for under my eyes as its so cheap but i think its just a little thin or watery to be a great concealer..i like the smell though
