I'm a fan of powder foundations in general and I've used a fair few over the years -- Body Shop, Lancome, Cargo, Clinique -- but I'm back to the Body Shop one now, which is the one I first started with. I had been using one of the Clinique ones recently, but it seemed like it was emphasizing my pores and generally not controling the shine very well. The Body Shop one does a much better job and lasts all day. I'm so glad the stores here didn't have my color in the Clinique version. That's why I went back to the Body Shop.
And I have ridiculously pale, cadaverous-looking skin, so trying to find a foundation to match is always a real treat.

And being ridiculously pale I need to get the lightest shade, usually an ivory which often makes my skin look unnatural and geisha-esque.. I've been using Sally Hansen Skin Brightener for the past few years and I love it because it adds just a touch of sheen to my skin for that subtle healthy glow and miraculously I've just found a pink blush that actually stays on my skin - it's Maybelline Expert Wear.
I love lavender but sometimes it can be strong and sort of old lady smelling so I'd have to give this bar a sniff in order to know if it was the good lavender. I like rose a little but that can be dodgy as well. I think Business Time would be more sensual if it smelled of things not quite so stinky. Too bad they couldn't bottle that musky Bret smell or whatever Jemaine smells like that Margaret Cho said was nice.Nancy Hillner wrote:SW, that is truly eerie!!!
That massage bar intrigues me, what with the shea and cocoa butter, but the scent combo sounds weird. Rose, lavender, etc might be okay if they're very subtle, but if as you say Lush is heavy-handed with the smellies, it'd be over the top stinky. I don't think I'll be trying it, even though it was named for the guys.
