I had high hopes for this product, but I'm not a huge fan.The biggest problem is how messy the applicator is. The product always accumulates in a thick glob on one side of the brush and gets smeared around the mouth of the tube. A tighter opening that squeegees excess product off the brush would solve this. It's hard to apply symmetrically to both brows because of how unevenly the …Read more

I get a sick thrill out of using these things. The dead skin rolls off like lint and leaves the softest skin imaginable behind. I have to clean my tub every time after. They remove more dead skin than the Salux cloth, but they're not a replacement for the salux. The salux cloth is supposed to be used with soap to get you clean. This mitt must be used without soap on clean skin that has been …Read more

My now former stylist recently destroyed my hair in a failed attempt at a caramel ombre style. It is stripey orange and totally fried from my temples down. I can't get a comb through it, even after a 2-step protein and moisture deep treatment, co-washing and coconut oiling. I grabbed this randomly out of desperation on a Walgreens run that was just supposed to be for toilet paper and advil …Read more

I have thick, wavy hair that's been frizzing really badly in the humidity this summer. My typical routine for humid days is layering moroccan oil under HE totally twisted gel on damp hair and air drying. It only kind of works and does nothing second day. Moreover, the silicone+gel combo makes my waves a little stringy. I tried this stuff out to see if it would work better. First, I put a lot …Read more

Many of the issues I have with this line have been discussed more in depth by previous reviewers, but let me state them anyway as further information to prospective buyers.

First of all the shipping time is very long. It took eight weeks for an order of 5 samples ("imps") to get to me. I don't have a problem with this inherently and I'm not spoiled enough to expect …

Oh how I love this thing! I have gone through two over the last 6 years, and that only because I worked my last one harder than most people would (see below). It's amazing for my skin in the winter. The flaking and scaliness is way improved. And it feels soooo good to scrub with it. I don't find the texture to be too rough. If you work quickly in circles, it's actually very gentle …Read more

I use this on my face and body in the winter. I have very dry, moderately sensitive skin and this does a great job keeping my skin my drying out. It's cheap ($11 for a tub at costco), abundant and unscented--although one of my cats who is very sensitive to perfumes recoils when she smells it on me, so there's something in there. Applied judiciously to the face (I pat on a tiny dab on …Read more

This is so refined and beautiful. It stays close to the skin and smells a little mysterious without being heavy. It's a perfect fragrance to live in, I never feel like it's wearing me. There's a lot of violet at the beginning but it never gets too powdery--it's balanced by some green notes. The drydown, which happens slowly over the course of the day, is beautiful. A vanillic …Read more

Fragrances - The Body Shop - Scents Of The World ~ Indian Night Jasmine

Very sweet. The sweetness completely overwhelms the jasmine, which smells too synthetic anyway. The overall effect is artificial and cloying, like a bad celebrity fragrance. I'm getting a lot of baby powdery white musk under it? Despite its grown-up name this smells like something a teenager might wear. Their Moringa fragrance has a lot more jasmine in it and it smells miles better.

I tried this on a tester strip and fell in love. It was a blast of rude jasmine with some hairspray and grape around the edges. It really smelled like something from space. I tried it on my skin and it was like a completely different perfume. The jasmine lost its sluttiness and grew up into something drier and more austere and all this amber/vanilla warmth emerged out of nowhere to dominate the …Read more
