Gels/ Soaps - Dial - Yogurt Vanilla Honey Nourishing Body Wash

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/20/2013

This smells wonderful, a sweet and warm foody vanilla (like BBW Warm Vanilla Sugar) with a yogurty tang. It smells just about good enough to eat, really. It lathers well, cleanses well, and yet doesn't strip. The texture is pretty thin, so I have to be slightly careful when squeezing it out, but nothing problematic. My only gripe is with the price - ~US$4 for a 0.7-oz. bottle at Walmart …Read more

Fragrances - J. Lo - Still

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

A few weeks ago, I was sitting in a Tex-Mex restaurant when the most heavenly scent of tea drifted past my nose. I spent the entire meal trying to figure out where it was coming from, until I finally pinpointed a passing waitress as the source of the divine fragrance. She told me she was wearing J.Lo Still. I ran, did not walk, home to order a bottle. Unfortunately (as I expected would probably …Read more

Cleansers - Neutrogena - Deep Clean Facial Cleanser

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

Since my HG cleanser (Neutrogena Rapid Clear Oil-Control Foaming) is rarely to be found anymore, I'm always looking for a good alternative. This does the job...it cleanses without drying out my face too much as long as I use lukewarm water. They've toned the scent way down since I was in high school, so using it no longer reminds me of being an awkward teenager. I just...really …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Tree Hut - Coconut Lime Shea Butter

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

My favorite body moisturizer, particularly for the price (~US$2 @ Walmart). It's a nice blend between suntan oil coconut and not-too-astringent lime - not a foody scent, but a very beachy, tropical one. The texture is quite pliant, not hard to scoop out of the pot like some body butters, but it's definitely a body butter and not just a thick lotion. It's very moisturizing, although …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - AmLactin - Alpha-Hydroxy Therapy Moisturizing Body Lotion

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/09/2013

I've been using the AmLactin body cream as a hand cream for a while, but decided to try the lotion because the cream is so heavy and leaves a definite residue on my hands. I'll be going back to the cream - the lotion isn't as moisturizing and softening, and I find I need to use it 3+ times per day to get any results (in fact, if I don't, it just looks like my skin is super-dry …Read more

Polishes - Color Club - Over the Moon

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2013

Over the Moon is a beautiful warm-toned sky/ocean blue with a powerful linear holographic effect (even in dim lighting) that isn't dulled by t/c. It reminds me of Hawai'i, namely a rainbow over the crystal-clear Pacific Ocean - I love the heck out of this polish, and despite some formula/application issues, it's easily in my top 5 must-have for life polishes. Said issues are that …Read more

Lipstick - REVLON - Colorburst Lip Butter - Creme Brulee

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/20/2013

On my dark pink pigmented lips, this is a light neutral nude creme with a slight lightening/lip-blanking-out effect - not concealer lips by any means, but it does tone down my natural lipcolor. I find that it can be a bit streaky if not applied sparingly (or some days it just seems determined to streak regardless). I find this shade and Cotton Candy to be as moisturizing as a regular balm, unlike …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Ninja Polish Glamorous

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/14/2013

This is supposed to be a dupe of the coveted OPI DS Glamour. I don't own DS Glamour, and have never seen it in person, but I can tell you that Glamorous looks nothing like any of the *pics* of DS Glamour I've seen. While the OPI is a deep ocean blue, the Ninja is a deep blurple (blue-purple) - it's like a very purple indigo, far from true blue. It does have a very strong linear …Read more

Polishes - Deborah Lippmann - Lady Sings the Blues

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/06/2013

I'm amazed that there are no reviews for this sublime polish. It's a jelly glitter ("jelly sandwich," if you prefer) with small round sapphire blue glitter and fairly sparse silver microglitter in a sheer black base. It needs to be applied over black polish - my pic shows 2 thick coats of LStB over one of black. The bokeh effect of the blue glitter in the black base is …Read more

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Darling Diva Ringer

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2013

First off, I feel obligated to state that Ringer is supposedly a dupe of Clarins 230. I've never seen Clarins 230, but I can tell you all about Ringer: It's a multichrome that shows red, green, purple, and blue all at once in the bottle in dim artificial light, but looks cotton candy pink/light fuchsia/blue-violet in bright sunlight. It's a sheer shimmer polish that would probably …Read more
