How can something so cheap be so great?! I buy these polishes at Ulta for .99 cents. The bottles are teeny but for trendy colors you don't need more than that (I find large bottles of nail polish very wasteful). The polish goes on evenly, looks fantastic, dries quickly. You can't ask for more than that in a nail polish : )
I have been paying $200+ to get my hair dyed/highlighted light blonde professionally for 15 years, every 4-6 weeks. It's become too costly to keep up so yesterday, on a whim, I tried this as opposed to making my next hair appointment. I LOVE IT! It was easy to use, nourishing for my hair and created the exact blonde that I wanted. I used 10b, the second to lightest blonde color. I decided to go up a shade or so and I'm obsessed with how light my hair is, I can't stop looking in the mirror. I will definitely be adding this to my hair arsenal. Salon go-ers: don't fear at home color like I did, this stuff is the business!
i use this as body scrub only and while i love this product, i had a hard time with it at first. as with most lush products, the packaging leaves something to be desired(read: terrible). when my little barrel of ocean salt arrived, it was sealed shut. the salt had gunked up into the tops' ridges and practically glued it shut. after several days without luck, i finally drilled some holes in the top so i could shake it out and use it. once half gone, the top finally came off and i used it more freely. this brought up another annoying point: the mix separates right away. a huge amount of salt on the bottom and the blue soap on top. so you have to constantly shake it like crazy or stir it with your hands. turns out that drilling holes in the top made the product better for me. i used less, didn't have to mix it by hand and shaking it out seemed to give me a perfect mix of salt and soap. and it smells so GOOD! it can be drying though so watch for that. for me dry = clean but tight, feeling like i wanted lotion as soon as i was dry.
this is a great product with a terrible execution. right off you should know: it will fall apart upon opening if it has not already done so during shipping/transit from the store. it will be a dry, crumbly, hard to clean up mess so make sure you're near a tub or garbage when opening. luckily, it smells yummy and is a fun product to use once you get to using what ever you have been able to salvage off the floor (half kidding!). when i buy the mud now, i know that i'm either gonna use the brick in one shot or be prepared to have tupper-wear near by to store it. buy multiple mud bricks as well since a little will NOT go a long way. i usually save it for a tub soak after a shower when my skin is not sopping wet but damp. this really isn't meant for a quick shower. happily, it feels lovely and is very mud/spa like once you figure out how to use it.
i have been trying to love this product for a while and i'm giving up. positive points first: i LOVE the smell. i don't know what it is but something about the smell is straight out of my childhood in the best way. the color is charming too since i am a sucker for barbie pinks. cons: maybe i just don't understand the point of lip scrub. i found it clumsy to rub loose sand-type crystals on my lips and then wipe it off (i REFUSE to "eat" any type of beauty product even if it's marketed as edible and gagged when it ended up in my mouth). following it with balm only weirded me out further since some crystals were still on my lips but not at all mixing with the balm. i ended up wiping the balm off my lips and starting over without the crystals. my lips still felt the same as before the scrub. is there something i'm missing with this??
i bought this cause i saw it in a magazine and liked the packaging. i once took a chance on maybelline's falsies mascara for those reasons and was happy so i figured 'why not'. sadly, i did not have the same results with the balm as i did with falsies. this stuff isn't special or great at all. it smells fine (basically like any plain lip balm with a tiny hint of what i think is orange/citrus?) for regular balm but i did not see any noticeable change in my lips. lightly chapped areas remained just that and it didn't seem to do anything except sit on my lips. maybe this is fine for other makeup uses but for plain balm i'll be switching back to my smith's rosebud once this tube is done.

i love this product!! my colorist refused to take my color the 3 or 4 shades lighter that i desired so after a recent appointment i took matters into my own hands. i use the spray VERY liberally and finally have the platinum glow that i wanted after just one bottle. now my colorist is forced to work her way up to that stage each time i go in as opposed to me fighting her about what shade i "should" be. if you have a light color treatment/blonde base, you will see a big change in your color. be careful though. if you're not committed to all over color or are concerned about highlights, this might not be for you. side note: my hair is naturally oil-prone and i find that this spray can be quite drying. once or twice, i've sprayed a little too much and noticed that my hair felt stiff. now that i have a balance, this product is essential for me and takes out a lot of my oil.
