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! 

Check it out!

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.
