Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Lollia - Dream

Oprah, what were you thinking?! Oprah listed this as one of her "favorite things" in 2018 and it honestly just smells like baby powder. I'm so disappointed, too, because honeysuckle is one of my FAVORITE scents and I loved the idea of it being paired with white tea. There was so much good in the concept Lollia had here, but the result is horrible. Their bottles are definitely very …Read more

The bottle is very pretty (I got the mini size from the Lollia site directly).

The scent is OVERPOWERINGLY floral, like every old lady you sat near at church. There's no citrus or green in it (which are notes from Lollia). When I sniff it, I can taste it, yuck. I was hoping this would be a fun, light summer scent but it's just obnoxiously strong and monotone.

I have still not found a better clarifying shampoo for price than this. I combine with #2 for cleaning before applying henna and for post-swimming, and always follow with deep conditioner. I wish there was an all-natural alternative but as far as I can tell, this is the best one your money can buy if you aren't swimming in money!

I have still not found a better clarifying shampoo for price than this. I combine with #3 for cleaning before applying henna and for post-swimming, and always follow with deep conditioner.

It was years ago I saw this reviewed on Maskcara and I still use it. I must have bought at least 7 by now, they last me about 6-8 months of daily use. Most days, this is the only concealer I use (I don't have AMAZING skin, I'm just lazy!!). It is not full-coverage. It will not cover a breakout so I keep a cream concealer on hand for that. But I have very dark eye circles and apply this …Read more

Moisturizers - Andalou Naturals - Daily Defense with SPF 18 Facial Lotion

I bought this as a winter alternative to the SPF 30 BB Cream. I prefer the BB (tinted), which is a little too much color for my pale winter skin. This is fine- it's a great daytime moisturizer, just the right consistency and totally does the trick. Absorbs well, makeup goes over it easily. It's a low maintenance pal to have around. I just prefer the BB Cream- it's more moisturizing …Read more

I've used the LUSH hennas and the Rainbow Lab hennas for about 3 years now- I recommend them both. I will say that years ago I used henna for the first time and it turned my hair into straw- it was a terrible experience. I learned later that you can NOT MIX henna with any chemical processing. I'd had my hair chemically straightened about 3 months before I tried the henna and wound up …Read more
