Other - JASÖN - Sea Fresh Plus Toothpaste with Fluoride

5.0

Dec/14/2011

I've been using this toothpaste for a couple of years now. A tube lasts me a long time because I usually don't use very much toothpaste. I usually start with just a little toothpaste and no water, because I think a drier texture helps abrade the plaque better. This toothpaste is pretty chalky and conducive to this method. The taste is one of pure, natural, simple peppermint. Leaves my …Read more

Hair Treatments - Moroccanoil - Moroccan Oil Treatment

Dec/14/2011

Yet another product I discovered because my mom bought it after being talked into it by whoever was selling it... unlike the others though, this one she actually uses, and now so do I. I only use it once in a while though, because while I love love love the smell, I find it weirdly greasy and almost artificially shiny looking. I have wavy/curly hair, and I think when light hits the parts of my …Read more

Cleansers - VICHY - Purete Thermale Demaquillant Integral One Step Cleanser 3in1

5.0

Dec/14/2011

I've been using this for a few years now. I have combination skin, oily T-zone, etc. One would think that putting a relatively "greasy" cleanser on relatively oily skin would be counterproductive... but I learned that what's really counterproductive is stripping your skin of its natural oils, only to shock them into overproducing them to compensate. I found that after a month …Read more

Conditioner - LUSH - R&B Revive & Balance Hair Moisturizer

4.0

Dec/14/2011

I'm on my third tub of this. Yes, it's pretty moisturizing and is easy to overapply. Yes, it's sort of expensive. But it smells so amazing, it's worth it for me. And the "greasiness" isn't really a problem because I only use it every few weeks, and only on my ends, and have gotten really good about not putting too much on. I use it after conditioning my ends …Read more

I'm on my second bottle of this in about a year. I love the smell, not too perfume-y, but definitely distinctively rosy and very fresh. Like another reviewer said, I don't notice the smell for long but I know other people do because they always say I smell good when I'm wearing it. I use it a LOT in the summer as a cool off throughout the day if it's really hot out. It's …Read more

Lip Treatments - LUSH - Honey Trap Lip Balm

5.0

Dec/14/2011

While I'm sort of shocked to read that so many people hate the smell of this, I can't really blame them because I definitely didn't like it when I first smelled it. I only bought it because my friend who worked at LUSH told me I had to get it because it smelled way better out of the store (.... it's this weird phenomenon with LUSH stuff for me...). And indeed, I thought so …Read more

Lip Treatments - Alaffia - Cocoa & Shea Butter Lip Balm

Dec/14/2011

YUM, the flavor of this lip balm is buttery, chocolatey, and sweet... and the texture is silky but sturdy. It can harden into crystals in colder weather, but it still goes on nicely once it gets warmed by my lips. Definitely my go-to everyday lip balm, along with Nanak's Lip Smoothee (which is a little more oily/melty/shiny). I love supporting this company, both for their politics and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Sympathy for the Skin Body Lotion

Dec/14/2011

I've bought this lotion three times now, I think. I use it pretty regularly. Smells GREAT, scent doesn't linger long NOTICEABLY but I have this suspicion that it actually is making me and my clothes smell really good all the time, but it's a subtle smell that my olfactory receptors have acclimated to?! (;-/).

When I first smelled it in the store, I thought it smelled …

Conditioner - LUSH - Solid Conditioner - Jungle

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/14/2011

This conditioner is usually the only thing I use on my hair. I wash it about every four days, which does not involve shampoo and consists of scrubbing/massaging my scalp and roots really well with my fingertips under hot water, then applying conditioner to the ends. Leave in while I do other stuff in the shower, then rinse out only about halfway. Sometimes I repeat with R&B (the jasmine-y …Read more

Deodorants - CLARINS - Gentle Care Roll-On Deodorant

Dec/13/2011

My mom had some of this in her bathroom that she never used. I'd forgotten my deodorant when I was visiting her, so I tried this out (not expecting to be impressed). I loved the smell so much that I snuck it home with me ;-).

Although I'm pretty active, I don't shower very often because I don't smell bad. I usually only apply deodorant ONCE, right after getting out …
