Lip Treatments -Christian Dior - Addict Lip Glow Color Reviver Balm
lotionaddict 5/17/2012 11:13:00 PM
Wow. Great natural lip color. Light pink, very natural, like you were just born with great lip color. Lip glow did not make my lips feel like they were sticky or glued together or dry out my lips. I noticed that even when the initial shine had worn off, the lip color remained, giving my lips a natural stained look. The scent is nice, sort of a sweet vanilla mint but not tingly at all like carmex is. Beautiful packaging, but at $30 (ouch!) I think that I will be using this one sparingly. I think that this product would be great for most skin tones. Just enhances your own lip color to literally glow.
I've been using Cetaphil moisturizing cream for about 15 years now and I couldn't be happier! Over the years I've tried other creams but I always return to my beloved Cetaphil. As one who suffers from eczema I can honestly say that I don't think that there is a better moisturizer on the market. I love the fact that it doesn't contain any fragrance and I can use this on my face as well. The cream is very thick, rich, and a little goes a long way. I'm not crazy about the tub (it seems a little unsanitary) but that's a small price to pay for hydrated skin.
Scrubs -Alba Botanica - Hawaiian Sea Salt Body Scrub
lotionaddict 6/28/2011 9:46:00 PM
I hate to give an Alba product a bad review but this scrub shredded my skin. I tried using gentle circles like other reviewers suggested but the salt crystals are too large and jagged IMHO. When I opened the container and removed the safety seal it was so full that I had a hard time mixing up the scrub without spilling oil everywhere. The citrus smell is nice enough but it's too oily and abrasive. My skin felt raw after I got out of the shower :( . Will not purchase again.
Yuck! This foundation smells awful and left my face with orange streaks. I chose the lightest shade and it made my face turn orange after a few hours. No offense to the older ladies out there, but this smells just like old lady perfume. I like the idea of an airbrush finish, but I don't like the fact that it sounds like I'm shaking a can of spray paint. I will not be purchasing again.
Conditioner -Giovanni - Nutrafix hair reconstructor

Giovanni how I love thee! I have medium fine, wavy, dry hair and nutrafix reconstructor has been the answer to my prayers. I get such amazing slip and smoothness without the silicones that are added to other conditioners. The best part is that Giovanni is organic! I work at a health food store and I can't believe that I ignored this product for so long. I'll definitely be repurchasing from now on!
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Hask Henna n' Placenta Conditioning Treatment

Sorry to ruin all the great ratings but this stuff is awful. I used it just as directed on the package and it made my hair feel dry and straw like. My hair is somewhat wavy and it was not damaged before I used this product. Now I feel a strange build up on my hair and it looks and feels like crap. I will not be repurchasing.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Milk & Honey Body Lotion
lotionaddict 9/27/2006 4:32:00 AM
I'm in love! First of all, this lotion doesn't smell like milk or honey to me, but I could care less. Honestly it smells more like coconut and mint...cool and coconutty. It is sort of runny but a little goes a long way. I think that the scent strength is perfect, after all I hate it when a lotion loses its scent after only 10 minutes. The bottle/packaging could be better and I wish it was a bit cheaper. $9 bucks is a bit steep for my pitful pocketbook.
I love the thick consistency the way it tightens and smoothes my skin. My face and pores look soo much better when I use QH mint julep masque. It does help soothe and dry out zits somewhat. My results were not as dramatic as others who had tried MJM on their blemishes ( or maybe my skin is just stubborn!). Don't leave this stuff on too long or it will really dry out your skin. It did sting at first, but now I'm used to it. I haven't found anything else on the market that works as well as QH MJM. Plus I love walking around with a towel on my head and a bright green face. ;-)
Mmmm. This stuff is yummy. I always have a tube of this in my purse. It smells like cherry vanilla. Not exactly like Dr. Pepper, but pretty close. Plus it gives my lips a lovely light red tint and is very moisturizing. At $1.50 per tube, there's no way anyone could pass this up. This one's a keeper ladies.
Skincare - Body -Pure and Basic - Wild Banana & Vanilla Hand & Body Lotion
lotionaddict 11/12/2004 9:15:00 PM
One of my all time favorite lotions. Goes on silky smooth feel soooo good, and smells even better. Not exactly vanilla banana more like light vanilla or even a bubble gum scent. I was pleasantly surprised. Lotion is one of my big beauty weaknesses and this lotion will remain on my continue to buy list as long a Pure and Basic makes it. My only complaint is that I paid 6.99 for 12 ounces. What can I say...I'm kind of a cheapskate ;).
I really wish this had worked better for me. It's good as a detangler, but left my head dry and itchy, also made my hair dry.
Cleansers -St. Ives - Clear Pore Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]
lotionaddict 5/15/2004 9:38:00 PM
I'm really loving this stuff. So far my skin looks and feels so much better. I didn't like the mediciney smell at first, but now I've grown to really like it. My skin isn't perfect, but over the past 3 months it has made a vast improvement. Love St. Ives, and it's sooo afordable. The only thing that I don't like about it is that I can't pump it out quickly, the pump comes back up slooowly. A flip top lid would be better, other than that, I'm happy!
This stuff is wonderful! It does smell strong straight from the bottle, don't let that deter you though. I use two capfuls in the bath and...wow! I use origins float away to do just that...float away. It has a lovely herbally calming fragrance without bein
