I adore 100 percent products, but this smelled gross. I mean I was able to tolerate it, but didn't like it! Smelled like expired sugar almonds or something.
Treatments -Biore - Ultra Deep Cleansing pore strips

Am I the only person these strips don't work for? I promise I have a boatload of tiny blackheads all over my nose, but for some reason these strips do nada. I've seen pictures online though were people's strips had tons of pus, maybe it's because they have bigger pores?
Worst candle I have ever had the misfortune of smelling. My god, it's bad. I purchased this on eBay and as soon as it arrived I was about to puke. My mom discovered it and decided to light it (a few days later). I walked down the stairs and asked what is that stench?? It was this candle! Horribleeeeeee

Powersmile is an amazing toothpaste! Cleans teeth really well and has a minty bite to it! Will buy again! Best part; unlike the majority of toothpastes on the market this brand does NOT test on animals!!
I'm not really a bar soap type person, but my parents love this! The bar is large sized and lasts a long while. Unlike the majority of soaps at the supermarket it's not tested on animals and does not contain petrochemicals!
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 100% Pure Shea Butter

Wonderful Product! Expensive, but totally worth every penny! You know it's fair trade because they tell you just where it's derived from and it's also organic! This is the hands down best Shea butter you can buy! A cheaper alternative is Now shea butter, that is also fair trade-but sadly, not organic. Two things the tin gets kinda creepy after a while (but I think it's recycled and that's why they use it, and secondly it's so natural that it can get very hard. You do need to warm it in your hands sometimes.

This feels SO amazing on my sensitive skin! Wow! It provides heavy coverage but is light (if that makes sense?). Does not really have a smell-sadly contains petrochemicals :(

Wonderful, fair trade Shea butter for a great price! You can usually get this on sale for 5.99! Great for dry skin and winter time;)
Very nice candle, really smells like the fragrance. It seems like after a few mins though you get used to the scent. It was around $70 with shipping and handling factored in, and I don't really love it enough to buy another one. It comes in a classy square glass container with a heavy silver lid. Great for a girly bedroom, the soft flower smell blends well with the powdery watermelon. I'm not sure if the wax is soy, I think it might be paraffin like Yankee candles are, and that for me was the biggest disappointment. I like a really high quality wax when I'm paying that much.

Very nice little set, this is perfect to find out which products you'll like. I do think using milk in body products is gross though:/

Not sure if it really helped my cut, but was very soothing for skin. Light green colored but blends in well, would buy again!
Shampoo -Burt's Bees - Burts Bees Baby Bee No Tear Shampoo and Wash

Much better then J&j's anything (as they use petrochemicals and test on animals). This is no tears and natural so it's great for babies! Clean smelling as well!
Skincare - Face -Burt's Bees - Mask with French Green Clay
yorkiemomma 2/19/2012 5:02:00 PM
I actually really liked this. Didn't do much for my pores but made my skin feel refreshed. The mask is a light green color when you put it on, but gets darker green as it's done drying.
Lotions/ Creams -Badger - yoga and meditation balm
yorkiemomma 2/19/2012 4:59:00 PM
Very nice yoga balm. Has a light lavender scent-got it on sale at American apparel. Not sure if I would buy it again though.
