Candles - Bath & Body Works - Blueberry Pie

4.0
Created with Sketch.

3 months ago

Released as a 3-wick candle, Blueberry Pie is a delicious sweet treat with fresh blueberry notes, bakery crust and sweet sugar. Pretty realistic and edible, with a nice balance of crust and berry. Bakery + fruit fans who found Berry Waffle Cone heavy or cloying will like this one, but there is one …. small... catch. Lack of throw. Blueberry Pie is a soft-hitter with a 5/6 throw. I think this …Read more

5.0

4 months ago

Label scent description: Sweet Summer Berries, Golden Waffle Cone, Creamy Vanilla with Essential Oils.
Cold sniff interpretation: Bread crust, butter, warm berry compote, creamy vanilla, mild spice.
Burn aroma: Bread crust, warm berry compote, mild spice, minimal vanilla, no cream.

I don't know why BBW named it BWC because during the burn there is no fresh berry note …

Candles - Unlisted Brand - SONOMA Goods For Life Crackling Cedarwood (Wax Melts)

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/07/2018

SONOMA Goods For Life is a candle and melts line exclusive to Kohls and it's absolutely worth checking out if you love fall candles. Quality-wise, Sonoma is on par with Bath and Body Works, but for less money, and their fall lineup is knocking it out of the park! The line has some brilliant apple/spice/pumpkin/vanilla candles that I'm betting would win multiple blind sniff tests …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Sonoma (Kohl's) Fall In Love

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/18/2018

Kohl's sells a candle and melt line called Sonoma (Good For Life) that is relatively unknown, but treasures are to be had! Don't let the off-brand image discourage you. Fall In Love is Sonoma's response to Bath and Body Works' Autumn candle, with crisp notes of tart apple, pear, and cedar. This leans more fresh and less sweet than Autumn, with a more prominent wood note. …Read more

Hair - Maui Moisture - Curl Quench + Coconut Oil Curl Smoothie

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/19/2018

This seems to be a very nurturing styling custard. I'm growing an extreme pixie cut out and have been using the Curl Smoothie (along with the Curl Milk) to cultivate my new waves (I'm 2C) as they grow in and I'm impressed at how soft my curls are, yet also defined. My curls are thick, loose and whirly but very strong, and also difficult to weigh down. My hair feels so touchable! …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Murad - Environmental Shield Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/23/2018

I'm a former Obagi Clear Rx customer and this lightening serum is one I would highly recommend because the results are remarkably similar. Four weeks ago I added this to my nightly regimen and it has done more to even out my skin tone than Obagi Clear, and it also brightens my skin because it's a glycolic acid treatment. As a result, my skin tone is *clearly* more even and has …Read more

Sunscreen - Unlisted Brand - Biossance Squalane + Mineral SPF 45

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/20/2018

What the website claims:
"A clean, lightweight and non-greasy daily mineral facial sunscreen that protects skin from UVA/ UVB and infrared rays, while defending against environmental stressors. Plus, it makes the perfect primer for easy makeup application."

My experience:
My skin is normal/dry and I'm looking for new options for my daily wear sunscreen and …

Eye Primer - MILANI - Eyeshadow Primer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/02/2017

Eyeshadow lasts forever with this stuff! I find this works as well as the high-end formulas and it has a light beige tint that blends in seamlessly with my skin tone without obvious edges. Not that it has a lot of coverage, it doesn't, but the skin tone tint lets it disappear into my skin. My lids are normal, not dry or oily, so many primers work well for me. This one stands out because …Read more

Cleansers - The Body Shop - Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/26/2016

Update 12/21/16: I'm bumping the rating to full marks because this makeup remover and cleanser has been wonderful during the past month. I notice this doesn't dry my skin out like my former favorite, Clinique's Take the Day Off Balm. If I use this exclusively and not follow up with my favorite gentle face wash, my skin doesn't flake or dry out during the day. (My favorite …Read more

Lip Treatments - GUERLAIN - Kisskiss Roselip

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/25/2016

This treatment hydrates and has a lovely tint, but it doesn't protect my lips and it certainly doesn't last. In the winter I prefer rich balms to keep my lips from drying out and usually I dab on some lipstick overtop for color. I hoped the Kisskiss Roselip would do 'double-duty' with sheer color and balminess, but it failed because my lips absorb all the stuff that's …Read more
