My husband was using this, then stopped, so I used it up while I was waiting for my usual Burnout Clean & Clear. That's the only other zinc oxide sunscreen I've used, and I like that one a lot better.

The best thing I can say about this sunscreen is it's decent; it works. It also didn't cause clogging, which I'm prone to.

But it leaves a slight …

So happy to find this great system for storing brushes upside down. You can also just dry wet brushes in it and then fold it up and put it away, but I like keeping them there and having all my brushes in sight and accessible. Found it thanks to an MUA search :)
I have the "Daisy" version, which is for a smaller collection like mine. It holds two large brushes, four medium brushes …

Misc Beauty Tools - The Body Shop - Luxury Facial Flannel

I'm on the fence about this.

Pros:

It's very soft, good for sensitive skin
Wet, it removes all your cleanser and makeup
Wet, it removes eye makeup too if you apply oil first, so that means cutting down on cotton rounds (that's the reason I got it originally)
Leaves face damp - you don't have to towel dry
Good size
Dries quickly …

Lotions/ Creams - Dr. Organic - Manuka Honey Foot & Heel Cream

This is a good product. It provides intense moisture and has good ingredients, including manuka honey 30+. It's inexpensive for something containing organic and bioactive ingredients. It also works well - I've used it not just on feet but hands, legs and elbows. I should note that I have normal body skin, however. I just get dry in those places. I like that it comes in a tube. To be …Read more

Treatments - Burt's Bees - Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

Jul/21/2013

If you want an intense CUTICLE treatment and like lemon scents, this is for you. The main reason I wouldn't buy again is really I like to moisturize my whole hands including my cuticles. Compared to Badger Cuticle Care, this is much waxier. I used Badger on my whole hands but this is just too waxy for that. I can't really fault the product for that because it is supposed to be a cuticle …Read more

Jul/19/2013

Of anything I've used, this is the one product that had the most immediate, visible impact. It is really good at decreasing puffiness and, surprisingly, fine lines. I wasn't expecting that last part, and it may just be that I needed more moisture in the area, but I love it. Over time, as my skin got used to it, it doesn't wow me to the extent it did, but I still feel like it's …Read more

Deodorants - Ban - Invisible Solid Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant

Jul/19/2013

This is what I turn to - in the unscented version - when I need anti-perspirant. I've had to use it this summer in the non-ACed heat and to high-pressure work situations. Sorry to temporarily abandon my beloved Crystal Roll-On, though, and this compares negatively in that, as everyone else has noted, it is not invisible. But it works very well as an anti-perspirant. The active ingredient is …Read more

Fragrances - Dior - J'adore summer fragance

Jul/19/2013

One of my favorite scents. I do prefer EDTs and lighter scents and find it overpowering if they linger a long time. So this was great for me. I looked up the notes: Champaca Flower, Mandarin, Crystallized Orchid; Jasmine, Muguet, Violet; Damascus Plum, Amaranth Wood and Blackberry Musk. I wear it very rarely because I'm avoiding phthalates - I'm on the lookout for a phthalate-free …Read more

Jul/19/2013

I love the scent - one of my top two favorite colognes. I think it was discontinued. That might have something to do with The Body Shop phasing out phthalates and musks from their fragrances. Good for them, and I wouldn't buy it again if it had those things, but I do miss this scent! Along with the Hair & Body Wash (which gets a 0 from goodguide.com - yikes!), this was hubby's …Read more
