Nice moisturizer. It absorbed to my skin quickly without greasiness, and leave a slight shimmer. I prefer the smell after a while I applied it on the body, rather than sniffing it direcly on the bottle. The formula is just right, not too thick and not too watery. I knock one lippie on the rating just because I found the smell is not lingering as strong as I would think it would be. But I don't mind at all to repurchase this product in the future.
A great lotion. I especially love the scent. Smells so refreshing while still in the bottle, and linger nicely after applied on the skin. Leave skin well moisturized. A definite repurchase.

My favorite 'foody' scent from BB&W. I can't get enough of Vanilla Bean Noel :) Too bad it is only around for the Holiday. Luckily, I had already got my self enough suppies till the end of year! :D

What a lovely soap! Yes, it is pricey, but I found it last quite long. The soap lather very very well, the smell is sweet but not overpowering, and not drying my skin. This LM Creme Brulee and Lush Honey I wash the kid soap had currently become my fave soaps of the year :)
Moisturizers -Shiseido - White Lucent Protective Moistuizer SPF 16

I just switched from Shiseido UV White line to White Lucent line. I had been using this line for almost a week and so far I like it better than the UV White line. From the price stand point, this moisturizer is pricier than the protective moisturizer in UV White line. The moisturizer had a slight tint of color, which is good that I can use it as a powder base on the day I don't want to use a foundation. It also contains Vitamin C that is supposedly good for the skin. It moisturized and sink to my skin well. The other benefit is to reduce spot & surpress melanin production in the long run. Although I can't tell the whitening effect right away, I certainly hope it will do the job as advertised.
Strawberry has a good pigment color, unlike the other Stila lipglaze that I had tried before. I like the taste and the texture is just right to my lip. The price factor is not favorable. But recently the price has been dropped ($16 for the smaller size) & released a bigger size for $20. So, not bad at all!
Not my favorite soap from Lush. Although the soap lather nicely, and the scent is okay (smells light citrus/orange). I'm not sure that I will repurchase.
Gels/Soaps -LUSH - I should Coco Soap [DISCONTINUED]

Ok...I only gave 1 lippie for this soap. While it was interesting to find the coconut bits in the soap, I felt the soap contains too much bits. I found that the soap is difficult to lather and the coconuts were harsh on my skin. I wish the coconuts bits could also melt or dissapear easily, because I hate that I had to clean my shower every time I use this soap because of the coconut residue.
Butterball is my first Lush Bath bomb. It turns the water to light yellow & scented the water to a nice and sweet smell. I like it! Additionally, I found that the day after, the smell still lingered in my tub.
The scents is slowly growing in me. I ordered from lush site after reading of the review here. When I first receive it, I'm a bit dissapointed -- it is totally different than what I had in mind :) But after using it for couple of times, I began liking the scents & found that the scents lingered for quite a long time on me.

Got this at my local TJMaxx and glad I bought it at cheaper price. Looks like real honey in the bottle. I used it first time for my bath. Lots of bubble and I'm quite satisfied with it.

Tom Kitten line are my fave products from Crabtree & Evelyn. I heard that the original Tom Kitten series was being discontinued & reformulated. I wish the quality stays the same
Smell very sweet, like strawberry bubblegum. The smell itself is strong, and scented my bathroom nicely. Lather very well, but I found that the soap dissolve pretty quick. I still like this one, but definitely not my favorite soap from LUSH.

If only it's not that expensive, I would buy again & again in a heartbeat :) Smell so yummy. Do a good job in moisturizing my body without the greasiness.
Love this product. I use it as a bath oil or as a body moisturizer. Nice conforting smell, and I would buy again after I finish the bottle.
