Tiny Hands Hand Lotion

I'm surprised at how much I like this product.  I'm sorry, but wrapping my mind around a solid hand lotion is just as hard as wrapping my mind around solid perfume.  I have a hard time believing that it is working as well.  However, this proved me wrong.  A tiny rub in your hands and a deep massage into your hands, leaves them nicely moisturized.  Thank you to the Aragan oil in this bar.  It isn't too oily if you treat it carefully.  Too much will leave you a little heavy.  The scent is very zesty for a vanilla scent and grows on you!  I have times where I crave the scent. 

It is a little finicky in the usage department.  It's not possible to tote this around in your purse as easily as a tube of Jerkins.  It is nice to use before bed though.  Keep it in your nightstand and apply nightly for hands softer than your mommas!

Ambrosia Shaving Cream

Yummerz.  I love this stuff.  When I was given the sample, the SA told me that she could dry-shave her legs with it.  Thinking about that made me get razor burn.  However, I "swatched" an area of my leg and bravely razored away my prickles and was pleasantly shocked and IN LOVE.  Not a bump or trace of the dreaded burn.  I do have to say though, that a little goes a long way but it sure doesn't feel like its covering my legs with any type of protection.  It's a real mind game. 

I gave this to Brian to try (if you haven't read/seen, he's my finace), and he didn't care for it on his face.  He said it "did nothing" for him.  I'm not quite sure what that means, but I'm sure in man-talk that means it isn't what he's used to therefore, is no good.  Hey, I'm the same way on a lot of things! 

Try it out!  If I can dry-shave my 50% Italian leg hair (lol!) and not get razor burn, it must be amazing!

HATE HATE HATE THIS BOMB!  What the heck?!?  It's just a glorified ball of salt.  Boooooooo.

Seriously though, it fizzes out into salt pebbles that sit in the bottom of the tub scratching holes into your legs.  There are also little pieces of doodoo that float with it.  This bomb is so plunks straight to the bottom of the tub like a dead bath bomb.  waa waa waaaaaaa.......

The scent is bleh too, like a dying Christmas tree.  A painful Christmas tree that burns every knick, scratch and scrape on your body.

Two huge thumbs down on this one. 

Check it out warned though.....epsom salt is cheaper and better lol:

Running to the Embassy Body Butter

This is LUSH's version of a pumice stone.  It's body butter meant for your feet.  It is supposed to de-yuckify and moisturize your cracked and nasty footsies.  It has spearmint and peppermint in it to cool your tired feet.  Combined with ground pumice, it is sure to provide your feet with a refreshing blast of minty softness.

The mint is cooling and refreshing in the shower while you scrub around your heels and all around your feet.  Also, it isn't too rough so it won't hurt!  It does a phenominal job of moisturizing and healing cracks.  The only con I have for this product is, it didn't last nearly as long as a bar this expensive should.  I maybe got 10 uses out of it.  A normal pumice stone is much more cost-effective.

Sunny Side Bubble Bar

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this bubble bar.  It was only my second dance with that type of product and I was romanced into a lifetime love affair with this sparkly ball of yummy.

I didn't look up this product before I used it.  To be honest, I wasn't too sold on the scent outside of the bath.  I think it might have scared me into thinking it was a watered-down Karma *insert horror music here*.  I was proven wrong though the moment I began to crumble 1/2 of this bar into my water.  The scent was intoxicating.  It was citrus-y and bright.  This bar made bubbles that outlasted the heat of my water!  With most other bubble products, including the Dorothy bubble bar, the bubbles popped out and left me *gasp* naked!  The water was a luminescent, swirly gold dream world and left my skin dusted with glitter after my bath.  My skin was softened and scented like a citrus garden. 

The great thing about this product, is that 1/2 of the bar was more than enough to give me an over-the-top bath experience.  I decided to cut the remaining 1/2 into two chunks which I'm positive will be great baths.  Such a great deal!

So yourself a favor, meet the love of your life on LUSH's site:

Post Weirdness

If you've noticed, some of my older reveiws are popping up under my newer posts.  I have no clue how this is happening or why.  If you've seen the post before, just disregard :)

Sorry for the confusion!


Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask

I'm a smurf.  Well, I was a smurf after using this face mask.  My finance and I slathered this clay-like mud all over our mugs and let it set for about 10 minutes.  We both washed our faces off and after a while noticed that something was off.  We were both pale, vampire-faced smurfs!  We both washed our faces 3 times and acheived no success with removing the blue tint.  It wasn't until the next day, and a couple more washes that we were finally restored to our normal, peach skined selfs. 

This mask did NOTHING for me.  My skin was dull, lifeless and utterly blah.  I would not buy this product again, and if it was given to me, I'd have to give it away to someone else. 

It was very different from Oatifix.  It was more like a clay/mud that dried into flakes (which fell off annoying).  The scent was nice, but the product was blah.

Oatifix Face Mask

This sweet honey scented face mask would bring mummies back to life.  It drenches your skin in moisture leaving it glowy and youthful.  Keeping it in the fridge provides a cool blast of refreshing WOW upon application.  A short 5-10 minutes later just wash it off with warm water and pat your skin dry.

My skin is very sensitive.  It breaks out if I cleanse it with harsh products.  It also breaks out if I over-moisturize.  So, you can imagine my hesitation at trying this product.  I was schooled by this concoction of oats, bananas and honey.  Three uses later, my skin has yet to see a breakout and glows from being quenched. 

This is a great mask for wintertime dryness.  I can't see those of you with oily skin needing this in the summer months.  If you have always-dry skin this could be a staple for you!

Unfortunately, Lush doesn't list their Fresh Face Masks on their website.  You can find them however, in the Lush Times paper. 
Here is a link to the Lush US website where you can find all kinds of goodies:
