Other -Unlisted Brand - Listerine Whitening Strips

I've been using these AM/PM for the past week and I have to say they are SO convenient, I literally don't think twice about them in my mouth.. the problem is getting them in. I know I'm not going to be the only one with problems putting these suckers on. Imagine those breath freshener packs by Listerine.. now imagine that coating your teeth! (texture-wise) They don't have a strong taste, pretty much just peroxide. They're safe to swallow, too. Leaves a bit of a stale taste though they are supposed to freshen your breath-- but I use them after brushing so can't comment completely. The packs are SO easy to open correctly, but getting them out can be complicated. It's easy to figure out which strip is top/bottom as they are versatile based on a cut out on the inner part of the strip. My only difficulty is getting them to stick to my teeth--not my lips/tongue/fingers/gums and I realized the only way this works is when my mouth is really wet (gross. I know.) I noticed the speckling on my teeth which usually suggests they work over time and my teeth were immediately brighter and more the same color to eachother than before. Will update on whiteness as that's essentially the only thing that matters!
Although the scent of crushed dandelions is a bit repelling.. I love the idea of something natural cleansing you and fighting bacteria. The SA at my store recommended that I try the creamy version as opposed to the soap itself as it is "much cheaper." Well, I ended up getting a huge bar of the soap. I actually can not find the creamy version of this anywhere.. anyway, I used it as a mask which is why I'd like to buy the creamy one next time. As for now, I'll tolerate the scent as I really like this soap.
The SA insisted I try this and kept complimenting how great it made my (newly manicured with perfect cuticles at the time) hands look. I gave in as it fit perfectly everywhere I took it. Well, there is an aftersmell that is nauseating to me and I *know* it's not just mine. Plus, the product itself also seperates and is a bit sticky/oily but I tend to overdo it. Will stick with my hand cream and manicures.
I often use this as a spritz. Doesn't do much to clear up my skin but if I were to use TBS's tea tree toner with MAC's Fix+ I'd imagine I'd get this product. I always have one on hand, but mostly use it when my skin is looking too oily and I have no makeup on it-- just to kill the oil. I'm very excited for the smaller size as I'd love to take this around with me.
The SA at my store insisted that this makes a great face scrub.. well, my hands were hurting after trying this in the store so, no thanks! I think it's a decent scrub if one were to maybe dilute it as there are some huge glass-like grains of salt in there.
This stuff is so stinky! I can *sometimes* tolerate it enough to try on as a mask.. but it's not as beneficial to my skin as QHMJM or aspirin so I don't think I'll need to repurchase after my sample is complete!
A good, fun cleanser.. not HG or anything. Prefer mine with chemicals and all :)
So this is a butter meant to be used in the bath.. it's interesting. Does a bit of exfoliating and LOT of moisturizing which I wouldn't want on my backside.. so I use it on my arms and legs. The smell is almost untraceable.
I actually have two very different versions of this.. one is gold with gold glitter and the other is white with green glitter. I have only tried on the white with green glitter and it's pretty and fun to use but it smells a bit like a boyish scent.. can't put my finger on it as it's supposed to be vanilla/lavender. I like it as a moisturizer but it's bugging me that I can't figure out why this reminds me of boys!
Lovely pick me up for my sometimes dry scalp.. I pawned one off to my dad who is *gasp* actually using it. He uses H&S poo and after I explained to him that the dandruff type flakes he is seeing may be dry scalp he agreed to try this. Low and behold I was right and he is using this very sparingly as he loves it! As for me, I can do with or without it but it is a nice treatment for my roots for a change.. only set back is I have to use it 1x a month and right before I use a purifying shampoo because otherwise it would leave me very oily.
Smells like a lemon peel and is not very pretty (a mustard color) but is pretty gender-neutral.. so it works in my bath. I have yet to discover if this is drying me out.
This is the only LUSH bath item that I have *ever* had issues using up. It smells sooo strong (of lavender and LEMON juice-not grape juice) that I try to only use it to put me to sleep or if/when I'm sick. I started using it with a scrubbie on my feet just to use it up but it turned the scrubbie bright pink and not in a good way :( this soap is extremely colored.. like there are spots of fuschia all over my shower after I use it, lol.
Gels/Soaps -LUSH - I should Coco Soap [DISCONTINUED]

Nice, gentle exfoliation and slightly moisturizing. Smells like an actual creamy coconut.. from the store.. as in grocery store. they also use shaven coconut in the soap. Only complaint is that it's a faint scent but I got easily bored of it.
Very cute name and dead on for what HIWTK looks like. Smooth and pretty moisturizing.. smells exactly like B&BW's holiday VBN LOTION; not the scent itself but the lotion which is a lot smoother and sweeter than the actual VBN scent in other products. My sister detected maple.. I don't. I also, for whatever reason, never use the top honeycomb part.. It's always fallen off, too.
Smells like pure lemon peel and something else.. can't quite put my finger on it but it's a tad more exotic than sexy peel. Pretty swirls.. I keep this in my SO's bathroom in hopes that it will scent the bathroom up like rockstar does in mine.. but nothing. It's supposed to clear skin (not blemishes, but "spots") and I can't say it has done anything in that dept.
