    Lush Ro's Argan Body Conditioner

    Unique conditioning product

    One of Lush's newer products, this body conditioner is used like a hair conditioner. You smooth this thick, rose scented cream all over your body, or just where you need it. After letting it sit for a couple minutes, you rinse it off. This leaves your skin feeling so nourished. Water just runs right off your skin! I love using this on my legs after I shave. It is also really nice if you want lasting moisturization but don't want to bother with lotion after shower. You won't need lotion after using this!

  • Dermalogica Precleanse
    8.0

    Dermalogica Precleanse

    Essential cleansing step

    I purchased the Dermalogica precleanse after discovering that my beloved Shu Uemura cleansing oil contained a potentially pore-clogging ingredient. The price per ounce of this is about the same as Shu Uemura, but in my opinion this is better because it doesn't contain ingredients that rate high on the comedogenic scale. The packaging of this is better as well because it doesn't have any leaking like the other does. Since this stuff is expensive, we can't afford for any of the product to go to waste! This has a light scent that I don't particularly like, but isn't offensive either. This is very effective at getting all of my makeup off and leaves my skin feeling quite soft. I follow this with a second cleanse using my Clarisonic and a creamy cleanser on most days. This won't irritate your eyes either. I think this is a great first step for anyone who wears makeup regularly and wants to thoroughly cleanse.

  • Lush Dream Cream
    9.0

    Lush Dream Cream

    Long lasting body moisturizer

    During the hot summer and cold winter months my legs get extremely dry, sensitive and itchy. I was looking for a body lotion that would help soothe my legs and provide long lasting moisture. I found all of this in Lush's Dream Cream. This has a smooth consistency that I love. It sinks into the skin very well, is not greasy and lasts all day. You really don't need much product either. This has a mild scent that does not linger on the skin which is great because it doesn't combat any perfume you may wear. Since using this cream, my legs are less itchy and the bumps have reduced. My boyfriend comments on how soft my legs feel on the days that I use this and he is a harsh critic! I will definitely be repurchasing this when my tub runs out.

  • Murad Clarifying Cleanser
    7.0

    Murad Clarifying Cleanser

    Gentle salicylic acid cleanser

    I started incorporating this cleanser into my skin care regime to help combat blackheads. I got it because of the salicylic acid. This contains one and a half percent of the ingredient. I was surprised at how gentle this is. It doesn't leave my combination skin tight or irritated. I use this with my Clarisonic a couple times a week. I have a more creamy cleanser that I use most days because I don't want to over do it. Even though I don't use this every day, the amount of blackheads on my nose has decreased. The mint feels refreshing but in no way stings the skin. Although this isn't going to give a super rich lather, you can still tell that it is working. Someone with an extreme case of acne may need something stronger, but for many I think this would be a nice and effective cleanser.

  • Befine Gentle Cleanser
    3.0

    Befine Gentle Cleanser

    Difficult to work with

    I was let down by this cleanser. This was just to hard to work with. The consistency is so thin! I felt like I constantly had to shake it to make sure everything was mixed correctly. A lot of the product would fall through my fingers so there was a lot of waste. The cleanser is quite gentle and I thought it was effective at removing my makeup and leaving my skin clean, but there are better cleansers out there that are much easier to work with. Befine has some really nice products, but this just isn't one of them.

  • the Balm timeBalm Concealer

    This was recommended to me by a sales person at Sephora, back when they still carried TheBalm range. I'm bummed that Sephora (at least the two near me) stopped carrying TheBalm! I really like the consistency of this concealer both for under my eyes and for any blemishes. Having fair skin I purchased this in the "light" color. I think this is best when applied with your fingers. I left my concealer at a friends house out of town and immediately bought another because I missed it so much. My only gripe about this is the packaging. The plastic is a bit cheap. Part of mine cracked and although the cap still screws on ok, there is a sharp edge there. It hasn't cracked any more, but if it does I'm afraid that the top won't screw on correctly and the concealer will dry out. That aside, I do really like this versatile concealer.

  • The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost
    2.0

    The Body Shop Vitamin C Skin Boost

    Didn't work well for me

    I purchased the Vitamin C booster to wear under my daytime moisturizer like a serum. I was first put off by the consistency of this. It seems to have a lot of silicone in it and it felt funny on my face. Since it was clear it was also hard to tell where I had put it. My moisturizer and makeup didn't sit well on top of the booster either. I tried to stick with it to get the benefits of the vitamin c but I don't think this product did anything for my skin. I have sun spots and some discolorations, but this did nothing to lighten them. I wasn't expecting miracles, but I did hope for more than I received. While Body Shop products are all reasonably priced, this product was more expensive so I expected more. I would not buy this again and I certainly cannot recommend it.

  • Ahava Purifying Mud Mask
    8.0

    Ahava Purifying Mud Mask

    Quick and effective

    I received a deluxe sample of this through Birchbox and am surprised at how much I like this. There are so many mud and clay masks out there that I am jaded. This was unique in that it didn't make my skin tight while using it and best of all, this mask only only takes TWO MINUTES. This is a great option for when you want to do something nice for your face, but you are tired and just want to crawl in bed as soon as possible. This mask is also really easy to rinse off so you won't be battling like you may with some other clay type masks. My skin was left feeling really soft and my pores appeared tighter, but without that stripped, dry feeling that some masks can give. I'll work my way through my sample and then decide if it's really above and beyond other purifying masks I currently own. This is fairly expensive for a mud mask, but I do think that it is unique enough to look into.

  • Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Gel
    10.0

    Lush Rub Rub Rub Shower Gel

    Lovely shower scrub

    This is one of my absolute favorite Lush products! I use this in the shower before shaving. It smells ah-maaazing, really clean with jasmine and orange blossom. When I use this, my shave is so much smoother and my skin feels nourished. This has oils in it that moisturize your skin, but don't leave a residue at all. I was worried that a scrub may be too harsh and could dry out my skin but the ingredients in this strike the perfect balance. I also like that this is a bright blue color so you can see everywhere you've spread it. I thought I would only use this once a week, but it is so lovely that I use it in practically every shower! Just take a scoop and spread this over the parts of your body that you want exfoliated. It lathers up just a bit and the salt scrub dissolves, rinsing away clean. I have about a third of my tub left and I am already planning my next visit to Lush because I can't be without this now.

  • Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All-In-One Facial Cleanser with Toner

    I use this cleanser on those nights when doing my full regime with the Clarisonic just seems too cumbersome. This really is all you need to remove your makeup (except the eyes...don't rub this on your eyes) and cleanse your skin thoroughly. You massage this into dry skin and then rinse. That's it. And it works! It rinses clean away and leaves you with soft, fresh skin. This doesn't make your skin feel dry or tight after using. I think of this as a no-frills product in the best sense. Its packaging is minimal, it doesn't have a strong scent and the cream/balm doesn't appear to be dyed at all.
