Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Tsi - La Organics

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/03/2011

The Tsi La organic fragrances are a wonderful concept, however I felt it was not perfectly executed and still requires some tweaking. I tried a variety of scents from this reputable line, including: Misaki, Ilang Ilang, Kizes, and Kesu.


Misaki smells of, lavender, tea, bergamot, mint, vanilla, and neroli. The scent was surprisingly refreshing, very cool, and suitable for the …

Skincare - Body - LUSH - Mange Too massage bar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2011

Mange Too is a unique massage bar to the Lush collection as it is the only edible massage bar.


PROS: (1) amazing aroma, it smells like white chocolate, honey, shea butter, and mint- not to mention the balance is delicate and not cloying. (2) This scent is identical to honey trap lip balm. (3) A little goes a long way- it leaves the skin soft, and acts well as a solid massage …

Skincare - Body - LUSH - Strawberry Feels Forever massage bar

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/28/2011

This product is really cute and satisfies the little girl in me. The scent smells like strawberries and cream- but to be more precise, it reminds me of Breyer’s Strawberry ice cream. It smells identical to Yummy Yummy Yummy shower gel (which has been discontinued). As a massage bar, it is one of the better formulas. Not only is it effective to use as a solid body oil for giving yourself (or …Read more

Fragrances - Hugo Boss - Boss Orange by Hugo Boss

3.0

Apr/14/2011

This fragrance is not bad, but not my favorite. I would not mind smelling it on others, but I don’t plan to make it my own either. This perfume has top notes of sweet apple, heart notes of white flowers and orange blossoms, plus a base of creamy vanilla, sandalwood, and olivewood.


PROS: (1) the opening of the fragrance is marvelous. A perfect blend of the notes described- …

Skincare - Body - LUSH - Shimmy Shimmy Massage Bar

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2011

I am starting to wonder if these are not made equally. The photo suggests a subtle glimmer, but the ones sold at my location are sparkly, not shimmery. They have a lot of chunky glitter in them, which is strange because I feel like it takes away from the affect I am going for. I wanted my skin to look dewy, but the one I have makes it look glittery from the chunky bits. Which is a shame since …Read more

Fragrances - Donna Karan - Cashmere Mist Eau de Parfum

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/13/2011

Cashmere Mist is so perfectly named. I really do think of cozy sweaters, fireplaces and snuggles. I have tried both the Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum- and to tell you the truth I am surprised they are not reviewed separately since they seem so different on the skin. So I will review the fragrance in two parts. However, first you should know the fragrance notes. Cashmere Mist has a fresh …Read more

Fragrances - LUSH - Gorilla Perfume - Lust

2.0

Apr/04/2011

I can’t say I adore this scent in the least. I tried it on several occasions and still can’t get myself to like it. The nose behind this scent is, Mark: “I think what you're good at is what you like to do. I do believe that I'm good at jasmine. I wanted to do a really, really sexy, dirty, lustful fragrance and that's what I've done.” I have to give credit to the creator, he …Read more

Fragrances - Pacifica - Tibetan Mountain Temple Perfume

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/03/2011

I bought the entire Tibetan Mountain Temple line (both solid and liquid perfume, plus candle). I really am in love with this beautiful creation. Admittedly, I was disappointed with the candle. However, I am pleased to confirm both perfumes hold strong for me.


I truly enjoy the combination of vetiver root, patchouli, ginger, and orange rinds, because it creates a very warm …

Candles - Pacifica - Tibetan Mountain Temple

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2011

I can’t help but wonder if I got a dud candle. I bought the medium size for $22CAD. I already own the Solid perfume as well as the spray on version. I absolutely adore the scent of Tibetan Mountain Temple. I find the combination of vetiver root, patchouli, ginger, and orange rinds to be exotic and soothing. I decided to buy the candle version to ‘complete my collection’ so I could not only …Read more

Body Scrubs - Dermalogica - The ultimate buffing cloth

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/30/2011

This product lives up to the name ‘Ultimate Body Buffer.’ It’s a blue long rectangular cloth made of nylon fibers ideal for exfoliating your body. I have used traditional loofahs, and I have used the Renaissance Glove (similar product, but not as user friendly or hygienic as this cloth).


PROS: (1) Leaves skin buffed and smooth- my legs look so smooth they are shiny! My whole …
