I really like this. Gives medium-full coverage and didn't oxidize horribly. I did notice it dries ever-so-slightly darker towards the end of day, but never looks orange on me. Shade ranges were good. There were more yellow tones than pink at my store so it was easy to find a reasonably close match. I have oily skin, but I like the formula of this much better for me even though it's …Read more

This soap was very drying on my skin! I got given a chunk from my friend (as part of a gift) and feel bad that she wasted her money because it doesn't work too well for me. It has the worst lather, but a nice sweet fruity scent that's quite comforting. I've used it up as a hand soap.

This is a great exfoliating soap. The only downside is that some of the chunkier bits of oatmeal can feel a little too scratchy against my skin. It lathers quite well into a milky texture and consistency and is fairly moisturizing on my skin. I don't like how quickly the oats melt off, but they have been grounded down into smaller chunks so they won't block your shower drain. It …Read more

"Rock Star" is one of those soaps where you either love or hate. It is a very sweet scent and can be a little too strong especially since the scent lingers in the shower afterwards. It does not smell like bubblegum! It has a vanilla, sugary scent and is very girly. "Rock Star" doesn't lather very well, but it doesn't dry out my skin which is a plus. Melts rather …Read more

This is a review for the solid perfume in the black tube packaging. I generally like citrus scented fragrances, but this is an odd combination to me. It starts off smelling sweet, then turns into a woodsy earthy scent. It smells rather weird and doesn't work with my skin chemistry. A good thing about solid perfumes is that they last a bit longer on the skin.

I found this a little drying on my skin. At first, it smelt too minty and reminded me instantly of toothpaste. Although it has a fairly strong mint scent, there's also a fruity/spicy smell that comes through when using this. The spicy scent is more like cloves or cinnamon. It smells more masculine in my opinion and is one that will definitely awaken your senses in the morning.

The scent is enough to put me off!! It smells horrible and not like honey at all. It isn't as moisturizing compared to the other lipbalms they make. It feels a little waxy and I find it better to use as a base under drying lipsticks. I like Nivea lip products in general, but I think I'll skip on repurchasing this.

I really like this. Purchased it in Pink Guava and it smells amazing! The colour is sheer (a light watermelon pink with shimmer) and applies like a gloss on my lips. It is fairly moisturizing and the shimmer isn't very dominant. I've been reaching for this a fair bit and might just go out and repurchase another scent!

I only brought this the other day and have already used a fair bit. I absolutely adore this scent! It's sweet, zesty and very refreshing on the skin. Formula is pretty typical to their other body butters, but this one is slightly less thick. It only becomes greasy if you apply too much. The only reason why I won't repurchase is because I want to try out other scents.

My LUSH store ran out of the Mint Julips one (which I was going to repurchase) so I decided on the bubblegum scent instead. The scent is a bit too sweet/artificial for my liking. It tastes nice and the lip scrub does a good job in exfoliating. My last jar lasted about 3 months before I had to repurchase, so even though it's a bit pricey for what essentially is a tiny jar of sugar, I …Read more
