Okay, my first issue with this product is the packaging. The gloves were awkward, and the bottle was... Awkward. I ended up aborting the whole operation and pouring it into a jug to use a tint brush. Secondly... It was thick. Uber thick. Which, I should have expected, but it felt like paint and it was difficult to spread through my hair. The smell... Was fantastic! Loved it.. The colour... Was a light brown of some sort, and it was beautiful, my hair was healthy looking and shiny... But it completely vanished in under a month. I think I'll have to experiment a little more with it.

The smell is so awkward.... I like the body shop's body butters, however the coconut smell is just... Dissapointing. Coconutty... Yet sickly. Would not buy again.

Ouuuch! This stuff burned my skin when I first put it on. Overtime I found it to be very moisturizing, so I endured the sting and kept using it. About a week in my skin began to feel tight, like I hadn't moisturized at all. (To the touch it was soft and smooth, but my face felt stretched and abused.) Will never buy again. Awful experience.
Very thick. I like this cream for after the shower, or when my face has been recently scrubbed. It does its job: it moisturizes, but I hate the smell! It's stingy, and kind of reminds me of baby powder. It's a nice cream for my dry skin, but I just don't think I can get over that smell.

My go-to lotion. I don't know why everyone complains about the smell, I love it! It's kind of funny at first but after 20 or so minutes its a rich, earthy smell. Smells pretty and natural. The shimmer is nice. With most shimmer lotion I get a nasty itch, but not this one. I feel nice and hydrated all day long.
All in all, not the greatest foundation. I find it to be really thin, almost watery. Wears off really fast, and I found especially around the eyes after a few hours my skin looked dull and kind of drab. On another note, I absolutely hate glass, pumpless bottles. So inconvient! Will not buy again.
I love this brush. :) I use it for foundation, bronzed and face powder. I find it transitions really nice between the three, and it doesn't turn solid with foundation, like a lot if brushes made for foundation tend to.
