Lotions/ Creams - The Body Shop - Strawberry Body Butter

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2011

I get a boozy/artificial fruit scent from this, and nearly all the other TBS body butters I've used. There's something off about their (TBS) body base, the lotions smell better. That said it moisturized ok, and is heavily scented. It reminds me of a strawberry version of VS Love Spell (fruity booze), not a horrible smell but definitely not for me.

Body Scrubs - The Body Shop - Strawberry Body Polish

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/24/2011

I really enjoy using this product, it doesn't exfoliate *sighs*, but it does smell like strawberry-scented gummi bears. I didn't think I'd like this before sniffing it as I feared it would smell like the body butter (the body butter has a boozy scent), thankfully it does not. The scent is definitely more candy-like than fresh berries, but if you enjoy that (as I do) then you must …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Ped Egg - Pedicure Foot File

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/28/2010

For years my feet have been rough on the bottom with peeling, and my Ped Egg actually corrected these issues. This product removes dead skin like nothing I've ever tried. The list of tried products include exfoliating foot creams, OTC foot peels (Avon), Pumice stones, and foot files (with sandpaper-like exfoliating pads attached).
The only "complaint" is that there is still …

Gels/ Soaps - LUSH - Turkish Delight Smoothie

Sep/21/2010

I LOVE this product, it's one of the few rapeseed soap products that I will use , and happily I might add. I call this product my "lazy girl soap", I smooth it on my wet body, it has very little lather (normally I love lather, but I accept the little to none you get w/this product), and after lightly massaging it into my wet skin, I rinse clean. I repeat this 2x times (call me …Read more

Fragrances - Bath & Body Works - Summer Vanillas - Berry Vanilla Fragrance Mist

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2010

Yesterday I visited a Bath & Body Works outlet in my area, and while looking for Summer Vanillas Apricot body mist I found this one instead. I picked up the tester bottle, spritzed my wrist, sniffed and immediately smelled a mixture of citrus, maybe a little musk, and rubbing alcohol. This scent mellowed in minutes to... Trish McEvoy No.9 perfume, a blackberry vanilla musk blend. This scent …Read more

Hair Treatments - LUSH - Recon Hair Treatment

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2010

I have the kind of hair that soaks up moisture like a sponge, it's very thick, curly, and dry. This product actually left my hair feeling greasy, I'm in shock!
The greasiness went away a couple of shampoos later, but I'm still left with a hint of mint (and it's not a pleasant mint imo), and the positive effects have lasted through multiple shampoos, that is amazing to …

Hair Treatments - LUSH - Jasmine & Henna Fluff Eaze Hair Treatment

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/13/2009

I have the type of hair that snags on a comb or brush when I'm grooming it (unless it's been artificially straightened). It's extremely thick and curly, natural (no chemical treatments), and it is quite prone to frizziness.

The above said, I thought nearly all conditioners were the same, meaning they may make my hair slightly more shiny and manageable, but to hope for …

Lip Gloss - Stila - Jewel Lip Glaze

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2009

I like this gloss, out of a possible 5 I'd give this a good 4 stars. Yes this definitely has pigment, I was a bit alarmed at first at the bright, almost neon pink gloss (this is one of those glosses that you must have a mirror, or you could end up looking clownish). It makes my teeth look whiter (big plus), it shows up on my highly pigmented lips without having to use a ton of product (most …Read more

Lip Gloss - Stila - Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2009

I'm in shock that this doesn't have a better rating, it's such a pretty gloss. It's an awesome universal, shiny/shimmery neutral/nude color. Though I buy more items from Stila than any other makeup company, I'm quite critical of them (the phrases lack of color & overpriced come to mind when I think of Stila), and I know hype when I use it, this isn't. It's …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Soft Coeur Massage Bar (The Honeymooner)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/21/2009

I use this as a body moisturizer, not for an actual massage. That said it's small, cute, moisturizes well, and smells awesome! The scent is reminds me of buttercream, honey, chocolate, and toffee. Believe it or not, it's not sickly sweet. I'm a gourmand lover, but I know sickly sweet when I smell it, and this isn't it. It's just a pleasant dessert shop scent that I'm …Read more
