Deodorants -The Body Shop - DeoDry Dry-Effect Deodorant
luckygreenclover25 4/16/2012 7:46:00 PM
This deodorant works fine for me, but my biggest complaint is that it stings when I put it on. I have the pink one which smells like lemon with a hint of floral.
Pleasantly surprised by this mascara! It feels very nourishing to my lashes and doesn't make them fall out like some mascaras can. Good length and volume but it takes a while to dry (I learned this the hard way- lol). Best part is that it is easy to remove. Kind of pricey though.
Perfect product! The first time I used it, I thought it didn't make any difference. But after 3 days, I was dark and it looked amazing! I was very pale to start with, but this looked completely natural, not orange at all. There was no streaking and the smell was minimal. Highly recommend.
Love this nail polish! It's a sheer, pearlescent peach shade. Very subtle but very flattering. It elongates my short nails and complements my skintone. The brush is nice and wide which makes application easy. For $2 you really cannot beat this!!
This is one of the best mascaras I've ever tried! The volume and length I get from it is unbelievable. It feels very creamy and doesn't get crunchy or flaky. Sometimes you have to comb your lashes after applying to separate them a bit, but other than that it's perfect.
I thought this would be a nice subtle gold for fall that would almost function as a neutral. Well, let me just say that there is nothing subtle about this colour! It finishes to an almost mirror finish - very shiny and flashy. It's not a bad colour, it's just a bit extreme for my taste. It's a cool gold, which almost appears silver under certain lighting. That said, the formula was extremely easy to work with and only one coat was needed. This is my first Revlon polish and I was very impressed with its performance.
I love this fragrance. It's sweet and vanilla-y and girly, but not obnoxiously so. I only wish the staying power were a bit better. It seems to disappear after an hour or two.
Gels/Soaps -The Body Shop - Green Apple Shower Gel

The scent of this body wash smells like real green apples. It's not too overpowering like some fake apple scents. I have the fuzzy peach one too and I like that scent even more. However, I won't be repurchasing any body washes from The Body Shop because I have found that they dry my skin out too much. They might be ok for you if you tend to have oilier skin.
I never have much luck with natural shampoos and conditioners, but this one was actually nice. However, I tried the Chinook Hydrating Shampoo (not the Crystal Falls). I have dry hair and this left my hair clean and soft. The scent is really nice. It smells like fresh cut grass and flowers - it's very invigorating. The only downside was that the consistency was a little too runny. I haven't tried their conditioners yet, so I can't say anything about those.
The value of this lip balm is amazing. I only paid $1 for it at Dollarama. The ingredients are all natural. And I love that it has the shape of a lipstick. It leaves my lips soft and glossy. I'm not a huge fan of the lemon verbana flavour but I will definitely repurchase in other scents/flavours.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiss My Face - Eye Witness Eye Cream

If your eye area tends to get dry, this product will not work for you. The consistency is too thin and it is not really hydrating at all. I also don't like the strong pine scent. The ingredients are great though, so I'm sure it has some benefits.
Mascara -Physicians Formula - Organic Wear 100% Natural Origin Mascara
luckygreenclover25 7/13/2011 8:52:00 PM
Of all the natural/organic mascaras I've ever tried, this one is by far the best. It gives results comparable to a traditional mascara, although I would say it is more lengthening than thickening. The brush is very good at separating lashes. It stays on all day without flaking, but it is not waterproof at all. It will sting if you get wet and it gets in your eyes. Like all of Physicians Formula's organic products, it has a weird smell, but here it is less overpowering than with the other products in this line.
Fragrances -Parfums de Coeur - Sugar Apple Fantasy Body Spray
luckygreenclover25 6/10/2011 12:23:00 PM
I wasn't sure if I would like this body spray, but I was pleasantly surprised. The apple scent is very apparent, but the crisp apple is deepened by the vanilla sugar. It smells exactly how you would expect based on its name. I always get a compliment when wearing this. I think it's appropriate for day or evening wear. Best of all, it is very inexpensive. It only lasts a few hours though, so you will need to reapply.
Lip Gloss -Unlisted Brand - Lip Smacker Pink Guava 100% Natural
luckygreenclover25 6/10/2011 12:17:00 PM
I like that the ingredients are natural, however, the taste/smell of this lipbalm is not very nice. The balm itself has a gritty texture for some reason and it is very oily. I have the vanilla one as well. That one has the same texture, but the flavour is a little better.
Skincare - Body -Vaseline - Intensive Care Extra Strength Body Lotion
luckygreenclover25 5/13/2011 4:42:00 PM
I don't know if I would call this lotion "extra strength". It's actually lighter than most lotions I have. But it's great when you're in a hurry and want something that will absorb quickly. It keeps your skin soft without being greasy or oily. It's also great for sensitive skin, especially if you get the unfragranced version. Unfortunately it does contain parabens.
