Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Oregon Beauty - Nourishing Cream

Just a tiny dab of this moisturizer goes an incredibly long way. Oregon Beauty has made a very nice moisturizer with a fine natural scent. It isn't overwhelming and the coverage is pretty amazing. I just bought this for the first time and I have a feeling this bottle will last me a while. Great morning and night.
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Oregon Beauty - Hydrating Lotion

The Oregon Beauty Hydrating Lotion is nice. It has a very mild and natural scent (much lighter than Pangea, which I like). I can use it in the morning and night, and my skin feels great before moisturizing. I also use it during the day, especially when it is dry out.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Oregon Beauty - Cleansing Milk

Oregon Beauty has a nice, mild cleansing milk. Like Pangea and even Dr. H, I wouldn't use this as a make-up remover, but more as a mild morning skin cleanser to start the day.
I don't know how many bars of this soap I have bought over the years. The scent is actually milder than a lot of Body Shop soaps. But I love it's citrusy goodness. Soaps this cheap shouldn't be this good.
I try to mix it up between soaps and shower gels, and the Satsuma Soap and Shower Gel is high on my list. As a soap, it isn't life-changing, but I usually have it in my guest shower, and friends seem to like it.
Shampoo -The Body Shop - Manuka Scalp Care Shampoo

I would like to buy this product again! I don't think it is available anymore. That is one of my frustrations with The Body Shop... sometimes my favorite items disappear without notice :(
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Vanilla Body Lotion

I don't always use body creams, but when it is dry in the winter I like to on my elbows and legs. I like inexpensive body creams, as you just use so much more. That's why I normally like Body Shop creams. However the smell of this cream was vanilla and... something I can't quite place. I like vanilla, but didn't like this. The cream worked so-so, it was better than nothing, but I think The Body Shop has better creams for the same price.
Shampoo -The Body Shop - Banana Nourishing Shampoo

I actually don't know if I would buy this again or not. The banana scent is a little overwhelming, but I like bananas, so that isn't so awful. However, after a few days I feel like using something else. I guess you could call it a nice "weekend shampoo" that is light but effective.
Shampoo -The Body Shop - Nettle Oil Balance Shampoo

I wanted to like this shampoo, but it was just kind of "there" to me. It doesn't have much of a scent, and my scalp didn't feel anything. It wasn't bad, but felt like using Johnson's Baby Shampoo, compared to most of the other Body Shop shampoos I really like.
Shampoo -The Body Shop - Ginger Shampoo Normal/Dry hair and Loose Dandruff
rnancy 12/7/2011 10:46:00 PM
Every so often The Body Shop discontinues this line, but with strategic sale buying I have not depleted my Ginger Shampoo supply in several years. I used to have light dandruff (or flaky scalp) and tried other, harsher dandruff shampoos. Nothing seemed to work (except to give me stinky hair). This shampoo has worked for me for years. Now I use it every other day or so... and that is good enough. I will buy again and again.
Treatments (Eye) -Dr. Hauschka - Eye Contour Day Cream
rnancy 12/7/2011 10:42:00 PM
I am skeptical of eye creams... I am not sure if you really need them. I tried a sample of this one and although it felt nice, I didn't really see any differences. When I saw the price per ounce I thought.... nope, sorry.
This is a nice toner... I tried in a sample kit, and would like to try the full size spray version. It is a little spendy, but when I need another toner Dr. H is high on the list.
I am skeptical of facial masks in terms of results, but I like Dr. H, so I decided to give this one a shot. I like this mask better than most, but I am still skeptical. It feels really nice (and I suppose that is part of the point) but afterward didn't notice much difference. I would probably buy it again when I am feeling a mask mode again.
I like this cleanser a lot. However, it is not a makeup remover. It is a nice pick-me-up skin refresher in the morning. It is mild, but not TOO mild. It is perfect as a morning facial cleanser.
I love Dr. H, so I may be slanted, but this is one of my favorite moisturizers. Dr. H isn't cheap, but it feels almost like something a real doctor should subscribe. This cream smells nice (I don't like overpowering rose smells). I have bought before and will buy again.
