I picked up the Revlon matte thingy in sultry too since I love their balm stains but then I heard it was drying & I have a hard enough time keeping my lips moisturized as is. So I was thinking about returning it. :( When you get a chance to try them out you should let us know what you think? :D
Will do! I tried them on but I didn’t leave them for more than a few minutes. My initial impression was that they seem the same as the Kissable line, which is kind of moisturizing but not very.
In case you don’t exfoliate your lips already, I also definitely recommend that! You can use a sugar scrub or just a toothbrush (I tend to do it when I brush my teeth in the morning). I follow that up with a balm and I let that sink in while I get ready. I do my lips last and before I apply whatever I’m going to wear that day I blot off the excess balm if there’s any left. I get much better results that way!
This smelled wonderful and relaxing while it was fizzing, but the scent completely faded away after that. The lavender bits floating around also turned out to be super annoying, they just wanted to stick to me! This bomb was not particularly softening, and didn’t get me ready for bed. Would not purchase again.
Avobath bath bomb - $6.35
I’m indifferent on the lemongrass smell of this one. It’s not bad by any means, but it doesn’t rival my favorites. However, it turned the water a lovely shade of green, and was super moisturizing and soft. I’d like to try this one with a Sunny Side bubble bar. I repeat: so luxurious and soft! Would buy again.
It’s Raining Men shower gel - $9.95-28.95
I’ve been hesitant to try many of LUSH’s bottled products because they smell so strong and sickly in their concentrated form, however last time I went the sales associate talked me into a sample of this shower gel. I loved it! It smells like sweet caramel goodness, and lathers up very nice and soft. LUSH’s shower gels are on the pricey side, and I’ve been on a soap kick lately, so I may or may not purchase a full size.
"Cinders - said to invoke the feeling of being by a glowing fireside. It is made with cinnamon leaf and orange oil and features popping candy to emulate the sound of an open crackling fire. This product seeks to relax, lift the spirits and is vegan."
LUSH YOU HAVE MADE ME MORE EXCITED FOR CHRISTMAS THAN WHEN THE CO-OP STARTED SELLING MINCE PIES
Don’t worry! Ponche is definitely back.
WTF!? Ponche is back, but not Twilight?
*grumble grumble grumble*
BTW, I want everything except Ponce. Those Christmas Penguins are adoooorable!
Normally I’m not a big fan of flowery scents, but this is so light and not overly flowery…just faintly so. I think the description for this bomb recently changed, because I was under the impression it was cherry blossom inspired, but looking at the website now it says mimosa. Ah well, this bomb is on the boring side, it turned the water sort of a misty white. It is a relaxing and uplifting sort of scent though…I may or may not purchase again.
Sex Bomb Bath Bomb - $6.65
Another flowery one. I couldn’t quite make up my mind on the scent here. It’s certainly not one of my favorites, but it’s not bad. It lingered, which I liked, but my boyfriend said it smelled a little too perfumey. As far as actual bath experience though, this bomb is awesome. It turned the water bright pink, and the little petals floating around made for a very luxurious feeling bath. In the future I would add a bath melt to the mix, because I didn’t find this bomb to be very moisturizing.
No Drought Dry Shampoo - $6.95-13.95
As far as powder dry shampoos go, this is my favorite out of the 3 I’ve tried. As far as all dry shampoos go (I’ve tried probably 7 or 8), this is in my top 3. It smells like limes, and it works very well. My only issue is that loose powders like this are so messy and difficult to work with. If for some reason I wasn’t able to get my usual Not Your Mother’s Dry Shampoo, I would buy No Drought instead.
That’s all for now! I have a few bombs left from my last haul that I haven’t tried out yet, so look for those soon. I’m also really looking forward to some holiday haulage!
Hey there! My last asked made me realize I haven’t really posted about my hair status since my last cut/color. A few months back I decided to change careers and go back to school full time (out of engineering and into education). The new student teaching gig requires that I be boring, so fun colors are sadly going to be MIA for a while. I really like the ombre/layers I’ve got going on now, so I’m hoping to stick with that for a while, and keep growing!
My goal is to eventually donate my hair again, and in order to do that it can be dyed but not bleached, so I’ll have to grow the ombre out…which should be easy since the top half is my natural color and it’s all blended and what not.
I’ve also decided to grow out the undercut. I just don’t keep up with it enough, and it hardly ever looks neat. It’s never going to catch up with the rest of my hair, but hopefully I’ll be able to tuck it into my pony tail before too long.
Do you work for a fashion house critiquing products. If not you should. A guy but still found all your comments cool and informative. Fun reading about your struggle with your hair. My wife is always trying to grow her hair and I'm always like cut it !! It's easy lol
Haha I don’t, but thank you! True, short hair is a lot easier. But there are more options with long hair, plus I enjoyed growing my hair out and donating it.
It’s been a while since I posted some of these! These products are all limited edition/several months old(at least), but hey, may as well!
Angel’s Delight Soap
I got a hunk of this at the Boxing Day sale, and it smells nice and fruity! The scent lingers on the skin a little bit, which I like. It lathers nicely and doesn’t melt took quickly, although it is a teensy bit slimy. Overall, I probably would purchase this again.
The Carrot Reusable Bubble Bar
The grass at the top of this fell out the first time I used it, but I tend to hold these under the running water when I fill the tub so it wasn’t a huge inconvenience. The smell is fruity/citrusy, but not too strong and doesn’t really linger. I got probably 5 or 6 uses out of it, which is a good deal. I probably wouldn’t purchase again however, I prefer stronger smells!
Fluffy Egg Bath Bomb
I love candy scents! I wish it were stronger though. It turned the water a light shade of pink. Probably wouldn’t purchase again however, scent didn’t linger long enough for me!
