    Lush Soap

    Need to be cured.

    These go quick if you don't let them sit for about two weeks. these are not cured like other soaps thats why they disintegrate so quickly. If you let them sit for two weeks, take them out of the shower each time, then they do last fairly long. Still its a lot of work for a soap! I have tried a lot of the scents. My favs. were Alkmaar which I don't really dig the floral scents but even this one was irresistible to me, Ice Blue which is pepperminty and sexy peel which is lemony but it has way too much stuff in it. I hated rock star I thought is smelled too sugary and fake. Over all these are more pretty and less useful then I anticipated. That being said I still buy Lush soaps, god I am a sucker for marketing!

  • Lush Body Butters

    Buffy is the only one of these I have tried. I loved it so so so much, that is until I used it all in three baths! I didn't leave it in the shower; I took it out and let it dry. Still when used all over, it melted so quick that I cannot recommend this, it is pretty small. It smells so good and scented up by whole apt., and its supper effective as an exfoliater and skin smoother. If you can afford to flush 11+ on 2-4 baths then this is a great product.

    Lush Lip Balms

    cute tin

    I went down to my local Lush store and found these. I ended up buying the apple pie smelling one. I really wanted to love it. The feel was okay, but the scent gave me a headache after a while. I was supper sad, these sound so good. Plus something in it angered my lips pretty bad, that was not fun. But It could have been just a weird reaction that I got not something normal. Who knows?

    Lush Massage Bars

    smell good

    I have tired almost all of these...I don’t remember the names. The one in this picture was by far my fav. It smelled exactly like fruit loops. It does go quick, And should not be left out in the summer, as I sadly learned. It is not an effected lotion its more like a body oil. The scent sadly fades quickly and youre left with an oily sheen on your skin. This is perfect for the summer when you don't need a lot of moisture and it makes your legs look good. I am split on if I would buy any of these again. They just seemed so impractical, mess and small compared to the price. But on the other hand I loved the smell and the feel it left behind and if your get the tin with it, its a funky, cute product to have.

  • Caswell-Massey Almond Talc

    Caswell-Massey Almond Talc

    went in the trash

    I have smelled other almond stuff from this line and liked the scent. This was horrible! It was so cloying I had to jump in the shower to rinse it off. I love sweet smelling stuff...Pink Sugar is one of my favorers. This did not work at all. I hated this; it smells like old people and rancid sugar. I had my husband smell it too and he said it did remind him of people in a retirement home. I don’t know how to explain the smell its just bad.

    Cake Beauty Cake Kiss Cream

    Wow that smells good

    I have this in both scents; I much prefer the caramel one to the berry one. But both smell divine. I think they work pretty well too as a lip gloss. They have a smooth, silky feel on your lips. I didn't think that it stayed on too well. But you get a fair about for about ten dollars. They absolutely add zero color. They look like they would give some color, but they are pretty much clear.

  • Cake Beauty Satin Sugar All Purpose Treatment Balm

    The consistency of this is something like wet powdered sugar. It’s very odd. It smells like lemon, sugar and vanilla. It is really thick so you only need a little bit. You scrap a piece off, roll it in your hands till it melts. It works nicely as a moisturizer. I love it because I can keep it in my purse and never have to worry about the cap coming off and lotion getting all over everything. I don't think I would buy this again for the price I paid for it, but I doubt I need to, its a big jar and so far I have had it a year and have not used much.

  • Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner

    Clinique Brush-On Cream Liner

    works pretty well

    . This eyeliner works really well if you choose to use a better brush. The brush it comes with is pretty hard to work with and will make putting this on way too much effort. The cream itself is really nice, its thick and dries to and unmovable line. The only draw back is it does take sometime for it to dry. I tried this in black and brown and I liked the brown so much better. The black can apply a little uneven and go on sheer in spots. The brown was much more consistent. Its right up there with Stilas and I think it surpasses MAC.

  • Clinique Mild Clarifying Lotion

    I had really bad blackheads and I researched for days how to get rid of them. All the people said the same thing you need BHA. I found this product and was so sure it would work. Nope, I later found out that it cannot effectively exfoliate because it has a too high PH. I did however find some products that are in the right PH to exfoliate and one of them was Paulas Choice. It worked well enough on me, but my husband used it and his skin went crazy, then I discovered that salicylic acid is derived from aspirin. My husband is very allergic to aspirin, so if you are too use an AHA instead. It cant exfoliate inside the pore like BHA but it does exfoliate the outer surface of your skin, it tends to work better on wrinkles then pimples, but since making my husband use it I have seen a huge difference in his skin. Alpha Hydrox 10 percent glycolic in the oil free clear gel works the best. Lastly make sure you use sunscreen if you use and BHA or AHA, you will burn easier and your skin gets sun damage, like melanoma spots, dark spots so much easier.

  • Burt's Bees Almond Milk Beeswax Hand Creme

    This stuff is as thick as it gets. It is far more a peanut butter consistency then any lotion I have tried. The almond one smells wonderful, but sadly the scent fades really quickly. Its a bit hard to work with if you plan to use your hands after putting this on. It does sink in mostly but there is a waxy film left behind that does not go away. I use this right before bed and pray there is not a fire in my house during the night, there would be no way for me to turn a door knob with this stuff on. It does work as a lotion, better then most, not as good as some. The appeal is the ease of availability so there for its worth it. Mostly.
