Lip Treatments - The Body Shop - Lip Butter

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/08/2013

I bought this because I live in a very dry climate and the winter is harsh on my lips. I also love lemon scented and flavored things, so I bought the sweet lemon lip butter. I do like the scent. However, this isn't moisturizing enough for my lips, and it doesn't seem to last long. I am constantly reapplying it.

I am also not a huge fan of the packaging: I tend to prefer …

Dec/04/2012

I am generally a fan of lemon scented products, and I love the look of the packaging, so I was really excited to try this lip balm. Things I like about this lip balm: the packaging makes it easy to find in my purse or bag; it has SPF; the lemon scent is really nice. Things I am not crazy about: it's waxy, and I don't feel like it moisturizes my lips at all.

Overall, I …

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Extra Gentle Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/20/2010

I usually have normal to slightly oily skin, but this fall and winter my skin has been slightly dry and fairly sensitive. I switched to this cleanser from Neutrogena's Fresh Foaming Face wash, which was too harsh for my now-dry skin. The Extra Gentle Cleanser is perfect for me. My skin doesn't feel dry or tight after I wash it, just clean. This cleanser also doesn't irritate my …Read more

Shampoo - Desert Essence - Italian Red Grape Shampoo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/14/2010

I bought this shampoo specifically because it's SLS-free. As others have mentioned, it does have a noticeable grape smell. To me, it smells like the grape Icee-Freeze pops I used to have as a kid. I should mention that I have slightly oily hair, but I shampoo and condition every day. When I used this shampoo, I did use it daily. This shampoo is gentle and cleans well, but it leaves my hair …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - J. R. Watkins - Lemon Cream Hand & Body Lotion

4.0

May/13/2010

I'm trying to find the perfect lemon scent for me. Generally, all lemon scents either morph into a cleaning product smell on me or they disappear completely. This lotion is the exception. I think it's because it's more of a vanilla-lemon scent instead of straight lemon. In fact, it smells like the lemon creme-filled cookies my parents used to buy. It's very sweet. The scent …Read more

Fragrances - Marc Jacobs - Lemon

May/13/2010

On me, this is more of a soft musky floral than lemon scent. I get lemon on the initial spray, but it quickly disappears. I find this to be a really soft, light scent. It's perfect for warmer weather. It doesn't have tremendous staying power, but I wasn't expecting it.

I bought this at T.J. Maxx for $19.99, and it's a great amount of product for that price. The …

May/13/2010

I am trying to find the perfect lemon scent. I am a huge fan of citrus scents in general, and lemon in particular. Unfortunately, my chemistry is really picky with lemon scents. They either turn into a chemical cleaning product smell on me, or they disappear completely.

I wanted to love this edt, and I was hoping it would work because of all the great reviews it gets. Unfortunately …

Lotions/ Creams - Avalon Organics - Hand and Body Lotion -Lemon

May/13/2010

I should start by saying that I am looking for a good lemon scented lotion. Most lemon scents smell like cleaning products on me, and this one is no exception.

That said, I do like the lotion formula--it's moisturizing without being greasy. I also like the pump packaging. I'd buy the lotion in other scents, just not this one.

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Lunableu 25% Shea Body Whip - various scents

5.0

May/13/2010

I think this is a great, moisturizing body butter. Generally, my skin is normal to slightly oily, but in the winter, it gets dry. This body butter moisturizes my skin very well. It's thick, I don't need to use a lot, and it sinks in fairly quickly. I usually get it in unscented, so I can't comment about how well it holds scent.

May/05/2010

I have normal to slightly dry skin in the spring and fall, and that's when I use this lotion. I don't need much moisture then, and this lotion is perfect--it's light and moisturizing without being greasy. It sinks in fairly quickly.

I do like the pump packaging, but I wish there was a pump that would allow you to use all the lotion in a container. That said, I would …
