I bought this fragrance without sampling it first, and I regret it... I can see why so many people like it, it's just not my fragrance... Upon the initial application I could smell a burst of orange which quickly developed into smokey incensey scent with a bit of floral sweetness. It reminded me of Lush's Icon perfume alot, on me they both smell almost identical, like church. I'm not sure I like smelling like that.
Ocean Salt Scrub from LUSH is a must-have for me. I have combination skin with oily T zone, clogged pores and occasional breakouts. I use this scrub twice a week and love it! First of all, please remember to stir your scrub before using it - the blue layer on top of the newly opened pot is very harsh and you MUST mix it with the white cream that lays beneath. Second, if you feel that the salt is too rough on your skin, work it in your hands with a bit of water to break down the salt crystals. Also consider applying some kind of oil on your face prior to scrubbing with Ocean Salt - oil based cleanser like Ultra Bland, Babyface or Sweet Japanese Girl from LUSH work great! My face has never felt clearer, softer and more glowing EVER!
I've been using this instead of my regular night cream for about a week now, and this product does wonders for my skin! I know, it's supposed to be used as a part of the a.m. regimen but I just love to treat my skin at night time. It does a great job controlling my acne which is surprising because of all the cones it contains. I wake up with smooth, eventoned skin and probably will continue purchasing this stuff despite the fact it's pricey.

This smells bad. Too heavy and not rosy-jasminey at all. Make a long story short - you get what you paid for. Great disappointment.
Moisture in a bottle! I ditched my everyday body lotion because I don't need one anymore! This body wash is amazing. It lathers up nicely and nourishes the skin so it feels smooth and well moisturized post shower. I even use it for my hair sometimes... Hey, how wrong can you go with a product that has water and soy/sunflower oil listed as top ingredients? It's super conditioning. I love it.

This broke me out in a heartbeat. I can understand why - it's way too greasy! That said, Neutrogena Glow Sheers goes straight to the trash can. Sad but true...
Not a good stuff. Shampoo was way too harsh (the opposite of MILD) and the treatment wasn't conditioning at all. I don't even think the duo is suitable for human hair... Unless you're a real fan of straw-like hair which I doubt.
It's hard to believe but I see results after just one application! I woke up with LONGER lashes! And my mascara went on so much smoother this morning. And it didn't disturb my eyes in any way - I was worried at first because my eyes are sensitive. I'll continue using it and see what happens :) For now - 2 thumbs up. PS. I got it from whatshebuys.com for $14.50 and shipping was free. The best deal I've found so far.
I'm gonna be a rebel here and say that I like this stuff! It works great by itself - without makeup. I tried it with liquid foundation and did notice some mattifying properties but they didn't last long so blotting papers had to kick in. But when I put it on clean face, dab on some concealer when needed and dust it with mineral powder - this stuff rocks! It kept my face fresh and clean for hours and hours. You don't have to put tons of it, just a tiny bit, and I actually rubbed it all over (no patting). It has some dry startchy feel to it but I like it. It evened out my skintone and made my enlarged pores smaller. As for being shine-free the whole day, it didn't happen, I still had to use blotting papers but I don't mind because overall this cream made my skin look beautiful :)
I always look forward to trying new DHC products. I received this one with my recent Deep Cleansing Oil order and my oh my, is it fun to use!! I only used it twice so far and my skin is so smooth and clean! And it's much brighter too. Last night I used it after taking my makeup off with the Oil and today in the morning I used it by itself. It could be too drying for those with dry/sensitive skin, I would give it a try with cleansing oil though. Get a sample of this first if you're not sure - it won't cost you a thing!
That's pure sex in the bottle! I get compliments from men all the time when I wear this. I suspect there's some aphrodiziac properties to this perfume ;) Seriously, I have a hard time describing this scent. It's a floral but just that. It's very unique and sophisticated. I wouldn't recommend it to girls under 18. It's not girly, it has a mature note to it.
I got this as a sample with my DHC Deep Cleansing oil order. I really like it so far. My face felt squeaky clean after using this scrub. It might be too harsh for dry/sensitive skin though. But for my oily skin I'll be a nice treat and I'll consider purchasing a full-size tube.
This stuff works like magic! Got rid of my waterproof mascara in a heartbeat. Just now I realized that my usual foaming cleanser didn't do that great of a job removing makeup... I was a bit sceptical about trying an oil-type cleanser as my skin is kinda oily itself. Amazingly enough, this oil rinsed very well without leaving any residue. I only give 4 lippies because of the price - it could be cheaper :)
not scruby enough! I know, I know, it's supposed to be for sensitive skin but is it really??? My skin is hardly sensitive but I got redness all over my face after using this stuff. I clearly felt that there were some irritants in this scrub. St. Ives Original invigorating apricot scrub is much better yet not perfect so the search continues.
Not a bad lip gloss at all. For the money that is. The color is lovely - bright coral pink, very shimmery. It goes on very sheer though which makes it good for a day wear. It tastes like fruit punch! I think if I didn't lick my lips occasionally (they taste so yummy!), the staying power would be pretty good. I applied it in the morning, had breakfast and 4 hours later I can still feel some gloss left on my lips. It makes my pout feel soft and smooth, it's very moisturizing. The only downside is that I find it pretty hard to squeeze the gloss out of the tube. The consistency is rather thick, reminds me Maybelline Shiny-licious. I will definetely try more shades. UPDATE. Today I had to toss it... I couldn't get the gloss out of the tube - too thick :(
