Love it for my brows
Recently, I have made it a habit to groom my brows while they grow out. This consists of filling in brows with both eyebrow pencils and eye shadow. In order to keep my brows to remain bold and in place, I like to use this product to tame my brows. I find that with this product, it makes my brows feel a little stiff, but for the staying power it gives my eyebrows, I love it. I always buy a few of these whenever I'm at Target or ordering from the website. These only cost $1, which is another perk that will continue to enable my purchase of this.
I use this moisturizer on my hair every single night and I seal it with an organic carrier oil (i.e. coconut oil). For my hair, I find that it keeps my hair feeling very soft and manageable. It has helped my hair grow and has kept it from snapping off from brittleness. I like this product smells and how it doesn't weigh my hair down. I will say this moisturizer is a little heavier than my Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship moisturizer, but it's good for when my hair feels extra dry and brittle. All I need is a little and it's set for the night. This product does have petroleum in it, but it's closer to the end of the ingredient list. All hair is different so what may not work for some, can work wonders for others. So far, it's working a wonder on my hair. Try it out for yourself. You'll know how you feel about the product after a week or so of using it.
I use this shampoo whenever my hair feels extra dirty or when I feel like I have product build up. No only is this a clarifying shampoo, but it is also a neutralizing shampoo for when you relax your hair. Compared to the Organic Root Stimulator Uplifting Shampoo, this doesn't clean AS deep for me, but I like how it makes my hair feel regardless. As you can tell by the name (as well as the reviewer below me have stated) it is a moisturizing shampoo; you can think of it as a polar opposite of the ORS Uplifting Shampoo, which seems more like a protein on my hair. The smell is pleasant, the lather of the shampoo is really nice, and it leaves your hair feeling soft. I would use this sometimes with the Replenshing Conditioner (as suggested on the bottle), but it can be used with whatever conditioner works best on your hair and/or whatever conditioner gives you what your hair needs on that day. This is a staple in my hair journey and I will continue to purchase it whenever I run out.
My Favorite Conditioner!
This is a staple project in my hair journey regimen. I love the smell and how it makes my hair feel after I wash it out. I'm able to use this conditioner every week if I wanted to, and I leave it on for maybe 2-3 hours max. With this conditioner, you can sit under a hooded dryer or a steamer for 10-15 minutes, or you can just leave it on your hair under a plastic cap for 45-1 hour. I like to mix in any organic carrier oils I have to make the conditioner even more rich and moisturizing for my hair. I recommend this for anyone, especially anyone who has relaxed/chemically treated hair because of how moisturized it makes your hair feel. I will continue to use this until they stop making it, which I hope they never do!
I have a serious love/hate relationship with this mascara. While on vacation, I needed to replace my mascara badly. I've been wanting to try the Falsies mascara after seeing videos on it on Youtube and reading about it here on Beautylish. So, while in Walmart, I bought it and tried it out the next day. Needless to say I LOVED it the first time I used it. It made my lashes look wonderful and there wasn't a clump in sight.
Fast forward to a few days afterwards. I was still on my trip and I wanted to wear mascara again since I wasn't doing anything crazy with my eye makeup. I pulled out my new favorite mascara and popped it on my lashes...can we just say clump central. I HATED the way my lashes looked that time and the only way to remedy this was to use my lash comb to remove some of the clumps. My lashes didn't look as good as the first day and I was disappointed.
Since then I've been wearing it a little bit more and the results are still the same. Some days my lashes look good, other days, not so much. I've taken to wiping off some of the product from the brush as I feel like it tends to pick up a little too much, and apply one coat. This seems to work out for now. Would I repurchase this mascara. Maybe. It does give that false lash effect without the hassle of lash glue and the lot. It also doesn't flake off like the Cover Girl Lash Blast mascara tends to. Would I recommend this? Once again, maybe. It's a good mascara, despite the fact that I've experienced some hit and miss times with it. I would tell others to try it out for themselves and form their opinion on it before tossing it or keeping it.
My Go To Lip Scrub
I like these lip scrubs. I have the Sweet Lips one and whenever I use it, it makes my lips feel really nice and less chapped. In my opinion, this is a good product to have year round, but especially during the wintertime when the harsh winds and cold can really dry out your lips and cause them to chap. I will definitely be repurchasing this whenever I run out of it to keep on stock for the cold winters or whenever my lips need a little TLC. Not only do the lip scrubs taste delicious (since they are mainly sugar), but they are in a practical jar and do not take up a lot of space. I would recommend using this with a small spatula though because if you use your wet fingers, it will clump up and be a little harder to use. All in all, it is a great product, and it is on my list of favorites from Lush.
Can't Stop Applying
I love this lip balm so much! I finally broke down and got after seeing a friend of mine use it on vacation. I purchased mine from Walmart.com and I chose the Lemon Drop to be the first one I tried. Needless to say that this lip balm will be a staple in my makeup bag for the winter. It makes my lips feel nice and soft and it has a pleasant smell. The only problem that I have with this is that it can make my lips feel drier as it's wearing off, but I find that if I apply it right after I exfoliate my lips, it works like a dream. If you haven't tried this round sphere of goodness, than you should.
These polishes are hit or miss for me. I have a few that are opaque, that go on like a dream, but I have used others that streak badly even with a base coat. I remember I did a manicure on my sister's nails for a wedding we were both going to and I used the color Beige Blast. Even with two coats, this polish was very streaky and did not look good. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to continue to layer on the polish because we had to leave to get ready for the wedding, but I have a feeling that if we continued adding coats, it still would look streaky. I don't know. Like I said, I believe these polishes are hit and miss. Still good though if you want to do a quick manicure.
