Lip Treatments -Christian Dior - Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm

Purchased this, but then came to my senses and said what am I wasting my money on?? It's a lip balm! Had to take it back. It's a nice product, but not worth the price - no lip balms are IMHO. I am giving this 1 lippie because of the outrageous cost.

I really like this product. The smell is a bit overpowering at first, but I just spray my hair then leave the room for a few minutes until it clears. It really keeps my hair looking fresh and seems to give it some volume as well. Glad I didn't get a defective can, i've been using mine probably twice a week for over a month and it's still going strong. And you can't beat the price! I am giving it a 3 for packaging quality, because of all the issues I've read about.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - EXTRA VIRGIN Coconut Oil (All brands)

Love Nutiva coconut oil. Yes, it is a great eye makeup remover, and does a wonderful job conditioning my skin and hair, but the BEST thing for me is it gets rid of those nasty red KP bumps I have always had on the back of my arms. I mean literally, within 3 days of using this on my KP it is all almost gone. I went back to Amazon and got this on their auto-ship program, I am never going to be without this again!!

LOVE this lotion. I use the pomegranite scented version and I think it smells great, but the smell does dissipate, so does not interfere with perfume or body sprays. This is a nice thick lotion, but goes on smoothly, no tacky oily or greasy feel left behind; it sinks in quickly and totally moisturizes my skin. I get this on Amazon dot com for about $10 for the 17 oz. bottle. Can you say HG?? This is IT.
I was excited to try this product, but it is full if silicones. It worked initially, but after a month or so, my hair got really dry and did not respond to the product anymore. I think a lot of it was the buildup left in my hair. I have ordered some pure argan oil and trashed the moroccanoil.
LOVE this. It is strong, but a nice complex white floral that lasts. Someone described it as 'creamy' and I think that's a great word for it. A sophisticated scent, especially for BBW. I'm going to be loving this one all winter.
Oh my. I so wanted to like this. But.... seriously. It smells like a cross between wet dog hair and old cigar smoke. NOT for me.

I love this scent! I cannot stand anything with the scent of vanilla, and BBW seems to want to put vanilla in everything nowadays... UGH. This is fresh, crisp, apple-y and just wonderful. Wearing it every day and don't know when I'll stop.
This is my HG foundation. I'm in my 40's and have some fine lines. It does not accentuate the lines, which was my biggest worry. Make sure you use a good moisturizer and let it soak in/dry before applying the minerals. This helps me a lot. I cannot use the warmth; it's too orange on me. I use the Glee, which is not orange; more of a pinky/cool toned shade. Less is more with the these colors. If you have trouble with the minerals, try using less. Especially if you look shiney, or if it is accentuating your pores. If you don't get enough coverage, use a tiny brush, and use it on the areas where you need more coverage, or try the bisque, or just use a bit more product when doing the whole face. It takes awhile to get it right; it's not something to try 3 times and give up on. It's different from a liquid foundation, so there is a learning curve, which is well worth it. One of the best tips I've gotten is to start at the outside edges of my face and work inward. Since doing that I don't have any shiney-ness. I like that it is all natural; no oil; nothing to break you out.
I love this scent; citrusy, with a nice amount of sage. True to scent on drydown, and long lasting as well.
I love almond, and I love this scent. Strong, but not overpowering, true to scent, and long lasting after drydown. Wonderful.

Great true cranberry; in her fabulous body butter. Long lasting, true to scent dry down.
A zippy mulberry; mulberry scent with a nice added 'extra'. Really 'kicks it up a notch'. LOVE this scent. Berrys with a twist.
I love Theresa's butters. The texture is incredible; thick but creamy and rich. They sink in beautifully and you will be moisturized for hours. Do not miss trying one of her butters!

Cannot agree with the majority here; this scent is WAY to strong; it's overpowering to the point where I felt physically sick after about an hour of wearing it. I felt like a walking bottle of pancake syrup, and it wasn't pleasant. If you like STRONG sniffs you may like this, but be forwarned. You will smell like Aunt Jemimah.
