I finally found an over the counter acne product that actually works for me! It's so funny...when I use this as a mask, it always reminds me of the movie Dead Presidents. If you've seen it, you know exactly what I mean. Anyway, great product.
I can smell the vanilla in this a little more than I'd like to, but I still like this fragrance. Warm, sensual and cheap--not a bad combination. Makes me think of crisp fall days and cute sweaters.

Despite the bad reviews, I think this is a fairly decent mascara. This thickened my lashes right up and gave them a very black, wet, shiny look. Sweet. It is a bit clumpy (I have yet to find a clump-free one)and smudges a little under my eyes. Still, I'd buy it again because of the price and the effect.

Ummm! If you're a fan of fresh, clean, sporty fragrances, you'll definitely like this. Not very unique, though, because it vaguely reminds me of RL Polo Sport Woman and another fragrance I can't quite put my finger on. Still, it's a great everyday scent.
I found this at TJ Maxx for like, 6 bucks. What a steal! This smells plain delicious and it never fails to put me in a good mood when I use it. My only complaint is that it has no staying power. But since it was so cheap, I don't mind reapplying it throughout the day.
After months of lemming, I bought this unsniffed and found it to be disappointingly average. Nice and clean, but I didn't love it. The lasting power is also lacking.
I have the waterproof kind in Very Black. This stuff is amazing--I'm talking lush, black lashes all day long that don't smudge. Two words: holy grail.
Very calming, breezy, unique and fresh. It really does make me imagine sitting in lotus position on a beautiful white beach, taking deep, cleansing breaths. *Sniff* Aaaahhhhhhh!
Since I am presently looking for spring / summer fragrances to add to my repertoire, I read the reviews on this and decided to buy this unsniffed. It's very pleasant, but I'm not blown away. All I can smell is the orchid (one of the few florals I like). Smells sophisticated, but not "old."
This is a sexy, seductive scent--it smells like it should be worn with lingerie and a pair of those furry heels. Yowza.
Since this was getting such great reviews, I had to smell it for myself. I was thinking, surely it can't be THAT great. One sniff and I was in *love.* Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I checked out the price. I was like, "oh yeah, I'm not leaving this store without this!" I really don't care if everybody and their mom wears it--I will happily join the crowd in this case.

After reading so many wonderful reviews, I was totally prepared to love this. Well, not quite. The initial root beer smell was extremely yummy, but it lasted all of five minutes. After the drydown, only the boring, flat CSP vanilla scent remained. Meh.
