I have dark, coarse hair and my skin seems to haaate razors. I've had a bottle of this stuff kicking around for ages, and after two months of evading the razor, I did a patch test and tried this out. The patch test went a-ok, so I tried it on my legs. It worked REALLY well for long, scraggly hair on my legs. The only things I dislike are:
- It doesn't seem to do as nice of a job on …

Lip Treatments - LUSH - Ultrabalm

Ultrabalm, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!

I use it for:
- Lip balm!
- Ultra-moisturizing dry spots around my nose in the winter. I went from chapped beyond repair to luscious and silky in a few days.
- Chafing in the summertime. LITERALLY reconditions skin so it's not even necessary to use it often.
- Making scents last.
- Moisturizing my …

This is the only hair product I'll ever need again.

As a person of Jewish and Sicilian descent, my hair is a mass of what my partner calls "crunchy curls". My hair was my arch-nemesis for the first two decades of my life.

This product, along with a no-'poo routine, has saved my hair. I can now wear my hair curly and it looks FABULOUS all the time. I …

Moisturizers - LUSH - Vanishing Cream

So far, this is my favorite moisturizer. It's not perfect, though.

The good: Matte-finish, smells ok, mixes with Color Supplement very well.

The bad: Expensive, packaging sucks and product may leak out in transit. I usually love the tubs, but I think this lotion is too gooey to stay put in its home. No sun protection.

I have oily skin, and this stuff …

Tinted Moisturizer - LUSH - Colour Supplement

I have the Light Yellow one.

The good: Goes on very smoothly, sinks into skin nicely, perfect color match for light olive skin, clumsy-proof packaging.

The bad: Can make oily and acne-prone skin break out, doesn't last too long, lack of color selection, especially for those with darker skin-tones.

Because of the aforementioned issue with breaking out, I …

Powder - Prestige - Skin Loving Minerals Gentle Finish Mineral Powder Foundation

I was seeking out a replacement to the NYC mineral foundation I am quickly running out of. Since it's been discontinued (WOE), I had to look elsewhere. Enter Prestige.

Coverage isn't bad, but it's not great either. Looks cakey at first, let it settle for about an hour and it'll even out. It does last all day, even in the heat sans primer. I work a physical job …

AGH!

So, I bought this product after checking some reviews. I clearly did not look close enough.

Color: So far, the color isn't horrible. It's kind of flat, but most box hair color is initially. It seems to have some nice highlights.

Product aftermath: My hair is ANGRY. Oh. My. Lord. I am now sitting here, post-dying, with a half cup of olive oil and a …
