Sunscreen -Burt's Bees - Burt's Bees Sunscreen with Hemp Seed Oil Chemical Free

Ugh. What is this crap?? This is by far the worst product I have ever purchased. I think I am allergic to traditional sunscreen chemicals so I was looking for a natural alternative. First off, if you put this sunscreen on the herbs will leave you smelling like grandma all day. Secondly, this product is so white that even after rubbing it in for a long time it'll leave a white streak all over you. I can't believe I paid for this!
I'm personally a huge fan of solid lotion bars and of the smell of lavender, so this massage bar is perfect. It works just as well as the other Lush massage bars. Plus it happens to be one of the cheaper ones!
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Japanese Cherry Blossom-lotion

I like the Japanese Cherry Blossom scent better than the original Cherry Blossom. But does this do anything for your skin? Not really. Plus it contains a lot of chemicals I would prefer not to have on my skin.
The vanilla smell is so addictive!! One of the best smelling lip balms I have ever used. It's not as moisturizing as the bigger Badger lip balms but it still works quite well. Will definitely buy again!
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Orange Essence Facial Cleanser

The orange smell is kind of strong and I'm not sure if this really did anything. My skin didn't feel particularly cleansed after using this product. Disappointed.
Has a nauseating rosemary smell. Reminds me of a stinky daycare for some reason. I use this on the soles of my feet because I can't stand having it so close to my nose! If you want to use Burt's Bees lip balm I suggest sticking to the original peppermint lip balm.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Milk & Honey Body Lotion

Has an amazingly sweet sweet (almost like coconut) and leaves your skin feeling soft.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme
rikasmith 6/26/2010 9:40:00 AM
I like how this hand cream dries really quickly after applying it, but it can leave a powdery feeling on your hands. The almond smell is pretty strong. I like the L'Occitane hand cream series better because it dries just as quickly and doesn't leave a residue.
I like these nose strips! I get kind of grossed out by how much junk these strips pick up, but then I'm proud that all of that is out of my skin now! I need to start a weekly or bi-weekly regimen of using these nose strips.
Treatments -Biore - Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips

I like these nose strips, but I didn't notice a difference between the Ultra Deep cleansing strips and the cheaper regular Biore strips. It feels a little tingly on your nose, but it doesn't work any better.
This toner is awesome! It gets a lot of dirt off and it doesn't dry your skin out. Plus the rosewater smells amazing.
Treatments (Eye) -Burt's Bees - Repair Serum with Attar of Rose

Smells great! You only need a drop or two at a time so it lasts forever. It hydrates your skin well and it shouldn't make your skin oily (unless you use too much like I do).
I don't think this product had any effect on my blemishes. The alcohol dried my eyes out. I had trouble getting the liquid out of the tube too. Overall a disappointment.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Peppermint Foot Lotion

This smells great and the tingly feeling feels great on your feet. I think it's a little thick and leaves a film on your feet, but otherwise I think it's a pretty good foot cream.
Treatments -Aveda - Smooth Infusion Style-Prep Smoother

This product works quite well for anti-frizz and as a heat protectant. The downside for this product is the cost. I feel like you could find a comparable hair serum at half the cost.
