I'm loving this on my nails right now. The bright, candy apple red goes great with my pale skin. This is similar to my all time favorite OPI Dutch Tulips! Love :)
I wanted to try a more affordable alternative to my Bare Minerals obsession. So, I tried an Everyday Minerals blush in Time Share. The color is beautiful, but the formula is not so great. It contains mica which has made me face dry, raw, and irritated. I wish I could use this. Sticking with BM is my only hope :/
I used this product for years. But, it was extremely drying and a little irritating. It did help dry out my pimples though. All in all, it did its job. But, ever since I came across Lush's Greased Lightning, I never went back to it. Lush's GL is a lot more gentle then the oxy, which was a huge PRO for me. I wouldn't go back to this is if didn't have to. Would be a better product for oilier skin.
I love the purple/bluish sheen that this nail polish gives, but is a little too sheer for me to wear alone. Usually I pair it with a hot pink. Today I bought Wet n Wild's strengthening polish in "True Love". Its a very barbie baby pink. The combo is stunning! I love it!

i have hormonal acne. my skin is mostly clear if I'm strict on my skincare system. I have also had encounters with eczema on the sides of my nose. the exposed cleanser does not dry me out. and i have extremely dry, sensitive skin. the moisture complex, though, is moisturizing but doesnt meet the needs of my dehydrated skin. but im sure it would be beneficial for oilier skin. I have to say that the Derm X cloth did wonders for me. its helped maintain blackheads, and flakey skin. my skin was baby soft after i used it. but people...dont pay 10 for a washcloth. i bought the same microfiber cloth at the dollar tree for $1! and it works 100% the same.i love this kit. and i wouldnt live without it. TRY IT!

I just recently developed red, splotchy, and slighty ichty bumps on each sides of my nose. I researched for days trying to figure out what they were. I finally determined that I had excema on my face. I have combination skin- oily on the tzone and extremely dry everywhere else--and plus my skin is very sensitive. Id been using a cortisone cream to cleared it up. My facial excema came back and then I found out that cortisone creams cause skin thinning. The last straw was trying EVOO and vaseline. IT WORKED WONDERS! I put both on everynight and I haven't had a problem with recurring excema for weeks now!

I really enjoy this product. Covers my circles very well. Does a decent job at covering my spots too. I usually set this with Bare Minerals using my concealer brush and that makes a more full coverage and sets it so it lasts all day. All in all, good product.
Works just as well, if not BETTER than my $16 Sephora mascara. Great mascara for the price!
This was the first bath bomb that I purchased at LUSH and I LOVE IT! This left my water moisturizing and with a vanilla scent. I will definitely repurchase :)

Could my UPS man come any sooner so I could have more of this? Its great! Smell is fresh and earthy, which is not something I would normally buy for myself but I have grown to love it. Moisturizing benefits are out of this world. And for the people who complain that its "greasy"...what body butter or body oil have you used that hasn't been slightly greasy? Pat it dry and your good to go with soft supple skin. No more dry elbows for this lady :) p.s.- If I could select "hell YES" on the question: Would you buy this again?... I WOULD.
Sexy Peel is my favorite. Lemony goodness! :)
I'm new to LUSH. I had heard mixed reviews on this cleanser but was really anxious to see for myself. I bought some items online and get this as my sample. I was highly disappointed. The smell is morbid. It really did nothing for my dry skin. It made my face feel tight as well. Not for me guys. But maybe I'll give it a whirl in the future and have better results.
The paper that LUSH products are wrapped in SMELLS TERRIBLE! It ruins the scent of everything in the store to me! I did purchase Sexy Peel and Angel's Delight that I thought smelled halfway decent at the time. When I got home, I cut a slice to shower with, and WOW what a change! The soaps actually smell like something that hasn't died! Maybe its me, but their packaging is disgusting. Maybe its recycled? Probably, but the scent is gross. Does anyone else agree? Anyways, now I really enjoy my LUSH soaps! Try, but beware of the icky smelling packaging!
Eyeliner -Jane - Be Pure Mineral Gel Eyeliner-Dark Brown 01

I got this gel eyeliner at Walgreens for $3. The price was awesome! So cheap! The product quality was impressive too. I own in Dark Brown, which is nice. Sometimes brown can be too light, but this color is on the darker side, almost looking black. Only con: it dries quickly, and its a pain to remove if you mess up! Darn my shaky hands! Other than that, I LOVE IT!
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Sensitive Skin Deep Action Cream Cleanser
rachelb140 4/21/2009 11:57:00 AM
I love this cleanser! Before, I used clean n clear in gel form for sensitive skin (its light yellow in the bottle) and fell in love with that. When I ran out, I decided to try something different. Though I loved the gel cleanser and it cleansed away my make up very well, I didn't get a "clean" feeling afterward though it did clean my face. So, I picked the Deep Action Cream Cleanser up in Sensitive Skin and I lOVE it! My skin gets extremely dry, whether it be summer or winter. The moisturizers in this cleanser keep my face from drying out and getting oily, and the tingly sensation that I get after is so refreshing!The texture of my skin has improved as well! This product is amazing! Its an essential to my skin!
