Lotions/ Creams - Burt's Bees - Thoroughly Therapeutic Foot Creme, Honey and Bilberry

This stuff has a bizarre texture: it can clump and get stuck in the tube opening, which is why I took points off for packaging, but at the same time goes on incredibly wet once you start to rub it in. It absorbs fairly quickly, but leaves a sticky feel for a few minutes -- this is definitely an overnight cream.

If you can get past the odd texture and enjoy the intensely sweet honey …

Jul/28/2012

I wanted to love this product: it's paraben-free with a decent SPF and marketed for sensitive skin, and it's cruelty free. However, I actually really hate it.<br>
First, the scent! I'm not sure how anyone with truly sensitive skin could get away with wearing this, as it's very heavily fragranced. It smells like a cucumber-floral and it takes a while for the scent to …

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Fusion

Jul/29/2010

I received a sample of the product as a BzzAgent, and found it to be a generally good, solid mascara. The color I tried was the darkest black shade and is a very deep, dark true black.<br><br>I preferrred this product to the original Lash Blast by a small margin only because it seemed less prone to clumping. I am still not a fan of the huge brush, and the formula is not as glossy as I …Read more

I tried this product in the 'Citrus Flare' shade.<br><br>
I liked the look of these when I saw them in the store, and hoped they'd be decent because they do have some interesting color pairings. Unfortunately, the actual product is just too greasy/smeary to work as intended. It never really dries or sets, and it doesn't blend well - any attempt to blend just …

Lip Gloss - COVERGIRL - Shine Blast - 815

May/06/2010

I tried this gloss in the shade 'Fire'. In the tube it looks like a slightly muted orange shimmer, but it goes on very sheerly. I got a slight orange tint to my lips, but nothing dramatic. It's not the most pigmented of glosses.<br>
The gloss was very smooth and non-sticky, though I found that this made it not last as long on the lips as a stickier gloss. It smells …

Lip Treatments - NIVEA - A Kiss of Relief- SOS Lip Care

Jul/18/2009

Wow, I guess I'm one of the few to like this product!<br>

It does feel like lotion on my lips, a bit, but I found it to moisturize pretty well and it doesn't sting like Carmex or any of those medicated balms. It cleared up some cracked dry skin on my lips pretty quickly. It tastes/smells a little weird, like Nivea cream, but it's not bad once it soaks in. I like it …

Lip Treatments - Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

5.0

Jul/14/2009

I love this lip balm. It's one of my absolute favorites -- I like it even better than the original Burt's Bees for moisturizing. The original mint-scented Burt's Bees is thicker and dryer, and makes a better base for lipstick, but I really felt like the Pomegranate one kept my lips softer and added a nice sheen.

I also really enjoy the smell …

Scrubs - St. Ives - Elements Microdermabrasion

May/12/2009

This is a really nice, effective drugstore scrub that isn't too harsh. It's always been kind to my sensitive skin when used once a week in the shower, but isn't like other gentle scrubs that basically don't do anything because the beads are too large and round. The grit in this is very fine, but not too rough - it's almost the same texture as a baking soda scrub. I …Read more

Lip Gloss - RIMMEL - Vinyl Lip - Snog [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/28/2005

I know everyone loves this, but I have to give it a mediocre review. The quality of the gloss is average, not bad, not the best ever. It smells vaguely fruity but not in a bad way like Wet N Wild glosses or some of the bad Juicy Tube scents. It would be a perfectly lovely gloss if not for one thing:<br>

It's practically clear on me.<br>

I guess I must …

Lip Treatments - Neutrogena - Lip nutrition - passionfruit boosting balm [DISCONTINUED]

Feb/26/2005

This is a decent alternative to Philosophy's Kiss Me red-tinted balm. It gives the same hint of pinkish-red sheer gloss, without the awful Philosophy fake citrus smell.<br>
This is supposed to smell like Passion Fruit, and I detect a hint of it, but it's not overwhelming like, say, the Body Shop's passion fruit lip butter.
It has no taste …
