Lips - The Body Shop - Lip & Cheek Stain

I. Love. This. Product.

I am of southasian descent so my skin is olive-medium with some yellow undertones. I use this on my lips and it looks sooo great. It provides a nice rosy hue and when topped with clear chapstick and kept on for a few minutes it looks extremely natural. I have tried to use it on my cheeks but have not been as successful with it because it doesn't look too …

I had hormonal acne that started around 21 years of age (never had bad acne as a teenager) and it has resolved/remained under control at age 24 now. After spending at least a couple thousand dollars on treatments I was able to combat it with birth control (yaz) and really good facials/chemical peels. At this stage in life my skin is uneven in tone but smooth and without active pimples. …Read more

My journey with BareMinerals has been a long one. My need for make up started a couple years ago when my body decided to attack itself and I started breaking out like crazy. Leaving me with delightful blemishes. Anyway, I just felt more comfortable with a product on my face to even out my tone, but not too caked up to where it was "obvious" I was wearing make up. This does the trick. It …Read more

HATE. I used this product a few years ago when I was 19-20 as a possible cure for my out-of-nowhere-acne-attack. Let's just say it's a big sham. It make my break outs worst...and introduced me to another monster: cystic acne. I applied the formula religiously, the cleanser, the toner, the moisturizer. But the cheap bottles, and their hideous smell were for nothing. Not to mention …Read more

Ok ok, I know the product has RAVE reviews. But for some reason, it just didn't do it for me. Maybe because I like the look of thick, full lashes...or because I accidentally bought the wrong color (Brownish Black)...I don't know. I have naturally long but thin lashes. I was hoping this would be a product that I could apply on days where I felt like I wanted brighter eyes, but not going …Read more

I've gone through about a BAJILLION chapsticks in my life. From lipsmackers to soft lips to ChapStick to BurtsBees and this is by far the best! Now you're probably wondering...how good can a chapstick really be? Well, realistically it does it's job. My lips get dry frequently and upon applying this (a few times a day) they soften up immediately..and get this...they stay soft! What …Read more

I use this with my Clarisonic Pro daily in the shower and once before I sleep. Love it. My dermatologist prescribed it to me a long time ago when I was on differin and antibiotics. I've come a long way from then (thank god) and now have a clear face to show for it. This is the perfect gentle cleanser for a light skin care regimen. Don't expect it to get extremely sudsy, or to have a …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Handy gurugu

Apr/25/2011

My hands aren't extremely dry, but I prefer for them to be extremely soft. I'm always on a hunt for a great hand mositurizer but I haven't really found my HG. The girl at the counter raved about how health professionals preferred this one because it's great even after multiple hand washes. Umm, no. It's just a light-weight moisturizer that's perfect for a little …Read more

So I have really thin, frail, and dry hair. I'm always looking for HG-esque products to help me bring my hair to life. This product definitely smells great...my husband always notices on the days I put it on. Also, a little bit definitely goes a long way, especially for thin hair. But I haven't seen any sort of difference (even minute) in my hair. It may make it soft and workable for a …Read more
