Beauty Product Reviews

Compact, travel friendly, and smells great!

I got this bar about 5 months ago durning the holidays. I was soooo skeptical at first, but loved it after trying it once. I used up the whole bar in about 5 months [side note: I try to wash my hair every other day] and the cost is only $10.95. I would say that is rather inexpensive compared to some shampoos I have purchased in the past. Also, these are soooooo travel friendly. When I fly, I never check-in my bag. So I love how this is a solid shampoo! It won't spill in my bag and I have more room for makeup/beauty stuff in my "liquids" baggie. =]

[How to use] Just run the shampoo bar across your damp hair. The LUSH website says about 3 passes, but I usually run it across my hair about 6 times. I guess it's because I have longer hair? Or maybe I just want a really good lather. By the way, this little bar creates such a good lather...surprisingly! =]

[Features - as stated on the LUSH website] No more knots - Fantastic at detangling wavy, curly hair. Lavendin - Contains lavendin that is soothing, calming, and works to calm the emotions. Flake bar - Essential oils keep dandruff at bay.

[My hair type] I have super oily hair with dry annoying [and opposite] does that sound?!?!?!

[Would I repurchase?] YES! I currently picked up 2 other solid shampoos from LUSH to test, but this one is definitely a keeper.

A good base for this price point...

I think everyone has the Milk JEP in their collection. It is a creamy jumbo pencil that I use as a color base. I always have to use an eyelid primer or it will crease. I apply a thin even layer on the lids and it helps make eyeshadow look more vibrant. They come in a ton of colors, but Milk has to be the most popular.

Best drugstore foundation for oily skin...hands down...

I have reallyyyyyy oily skin and this foundation does wonders for me. I even prefer it to many high end foundations. It photographs well doesn't feel too heavy.
