This is a nice matte sunscreen, but it balls up under makeup. I'm keeping it, as it will be good for summer due to its matteness/light feel and with a powder foundation, but it does not work with liquid foundation - makes me look as if I have face dandruff. Yuck.

Shave Products - Kiss My Face - Moisture Shave

I really wanted to like this because KMF doesn't test on animals, and it can be hard to find such a shaving product. I had this in Vanilla Earth. I loved the smell - not too bakery vanilla. Basically, it was like shaving my legs with conditioner or a creamy body wash. Unfortunately, my legs broke out (probably from the myristates). I have really dry non-acne prone legs, so I was …Read more

Bath Treatments - BerrySweet - Fizzy Powders (various scents)

These powders are like unmolded bath bombs. I've found they aren't very fizzy, but are amazing at scenting and softening the bath water. I've tried Strawberry Plumeria and Honeysuckle. In each case, the scents were strong and true. I got about 3 uses from each packet, thus making a highly scented yet economical bath. Highly recommended - plus if you don't care for them …Read more

Amazing, absolutely amazing. This is the nail polish I have been waiting for - this stuff LASTS. I am really hard on my nails. Usually my manicure lasted only 2-3 days (yes, with a good top coat) - this was simply too little time and it was bothersome to redo my nails so often. With Revlon Colorstay my nail polish lasts at least 5 days... and my nails haven't chipped, but grown out. …Read more

I have this in 7-up. It does smell like 7-up; it tingles your nose and has a pleasant lemon smell, although it is a little creamier than real 7-up, IMO. I think Cottage Shoppe can be a little uneven - some things are great and some things are just mediocre. This is one of the great products. I like the shea and coconut butters - very moisturizing and sink in easily. I would prefer to see …Read more

This set is so cute. Two 3.2 oz soaps in a retro tin. I bought this for the tin, but I was pleasantly surprised. The soaps are excellent. Very fragrant, long-lasting, lather well yet non-drying... kind of silky feeling - I think because the soap is at least triple-milled. I have clover and now want all the other scents: violet, jasmine, and spanish leather.

Still haven't found my ultimate self-tanner, although this is a good one. Pluses: great, superb color and doesn't make me break out. Minuses: feels so oily after you put it on - I can hardly stand it, it is so uncomfortable. Takes forever to sink in. I get lizard skin from this - even with tons of moisturizing and exfoliating. I keep buying this because of the amazing, deep, and …Read more

This melt looks like a white cupcake. So cute. It does take a long time to melt, but watching it bob around is kind of fun. I didn't smell any sandalwood - I smelled vanilla cake batter. It is really moisturizing and soothing. Not my favorite, but I'd buy it again (I prefer flowery bath melts/bombs with lots of jasmine).

I received a few samples of this from Sephora. I will definitely buy this! It smells fruity and green, like spring. The staying power was excellent - especially for an EDT. I think it will be perfect in the springtime/warmer months and in the office. This is really nice layered with a pikake lotion, too - adds a little depth.

I originally ordered this in the cold process version, but I got the glycerin M&P version. I just finished it - took about 1.5 weeks. First, other than the substitution, I wasn't too happy about the soap's appearance. It was an opaque blue bar, fine, but with parts of the blue flaking off in big pieces to reveal white. I think I would have put it in the reject pile, LOL, not for …Read more
