I spotted this dirt cheap in TJMaxx and decided to spritz some on my wrist. It wasn't bad, but I thought it was kind of sharp and I didn't like it. An hour or so later while I was still out shopping, I kept catching a whiff of something that smelled awesome--it was fresh, green and fruity. I sniffed my wrist, and lo, it was the Essence Exciting. It turned out to be a very nice fragrance after all. Would definitely purchase. Here are the notes, listed at scentiments.com, where it's also dirt cheap: Grapefruit, touches of peach, lily of the valley, freesia, star jasmine and grapefruit tree.
The quality of this polish is excellent for the price. I usually use Nicole, Essie and OPI, and this polish easily competes with any of those as far as color selection and length of wear. The fact that it's about $3 less than those hig-end polishes makes it a real gem.
This is one of my favorite fragrances of all time.
I bought this unsniffed, based on the notes and the price (it was like, $10). Ugh--what a waste of $10. There's a note in it that doesn't agree with me. I thought about just keeping it since it was so cheap and the bottle is cute, but I just don't like it. I'm sending it back today!
I love this! I have curly hair and this makes it so soft and manageable. I also like the smell.
Lip Gloss -Almay - Whipped Gloss - Nude Reflection

Love this shade! It's the perfect MLBB gloss for me. Sonia Kashuk lip gloss in Flirt was my HG nude gloss, but it has now been dethroned.
Looove the color--it's a goldish pink nude and it's very flattering on me. However, the smell is disgusting. I know this is *extremely* gross, but it smells a glue trap for bugs. *Gag!*
I have three of these--Ballerina, Clearly Pink and Stop Whineing. Stop Whineing is the only one that doesn't really look that great on me (I'm CCC). The gloss separates (gross, I know), so you have to massage the tube to get it to blend. I don't care for the taste, but the texture isn't bad. I got these on sale for $1 each at CVS. Good thing, because I'd never buy these at full price.
First, I'm all about the aqueous, sporty, woodsy, citrusy fragrances. However. This is one of the few "mature" smelling fragrances I really like. Smells sexy and sophisticated on me, and I always get compliments when I wear it.
I tried this recently, fully expecting to like it because of the notes, but I think the jasmine is killing it for me. Disappointed.
Aaaah! This smells soo sexy. I'd definitely buy this for my BF.
This smells really, really good. An old ex-boyfriend of mine used to wear it. This fragrance was the best thing about him, really.
This stuff rocks.
Fragrances -Bath and Body Works - Aromatherapy Bergamot and Coriander

Most of the other BBW aromatheraphy products smell like weeds to me, but this I LOVE. It's a very relaxing fragrance, IMO. After I used up the shower gel, I bought the body spray and the lotion, which I still have. My only complaint is the bottles. That amber color on them is totally fake and peels off if it gets wet.
Awesome shade. I'm a CCC and with a little gloss, this liner gives me a sleek, nude, modely looking mouth. This shade rocks with smoky eyes.
