This has to be my favorite fragrance. It's soft and sexy, sweet and seductive! I get compliments when I wear it, and I love that it is so soft. I layer the fragrance with the body lotion which definitely keeps the scent longer. Sometimes I just use the lotion since it lasts longer and the spray is pretty expensive. I took off one lipstick because of the staying powder for the fragrance spray. I will definitely repurchase unless I find a duplicate that matches exactly (www.sudsandlight.com has one but I haven't tried it yet).
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)
Dawn71675 1/9/2005 3:22:00 PM
I adore this stuff. I love the LOOK of the packaging, but the functionality of it just doesn't make much sense. You can't tell how much you've used, how much you have left...and the wand just doesn't seem to reach to the very bottom. Despite the packaging flaw, I adore this stuff. It is the only (and I mean ONLY) primer that keeps my eyeshadow crease-proof from 6am-5pm...and longer. I've worn it with MAC e/s, Stila eye pots, Stila e/s, UD e/s...pretty much any eyeshadow seems to adhere to the primer. Love it. Will repurchase again and again. :) Update: It is now October 2007 and I still use the Primer Potion every day. I don't know what I'd do without it. This is honestly one product that I hope to never be without. I always need a tube on back up! I hope UD never stops making this!!!!
Fragrances -Suds and Light - Blackberry Musk Roll-On
Dawn71675 5/23/2004 1:14:00 PM
This is one of my absolute favorite scents and the roll-on is excellent. The scent lasts a long time and I apply it on pulse points for best results. Great clear glass roll-on jar that is small enough to take anywhere. This is such a great product, the price is outstanding (I believe they are less than $6!), and the quality can't be beat. I also have the roll on in Pink Sugar and love it just as much!

Fragrances -Suds and Light - Blackberry Musk Body Mist
Dawn71675 5/23/2004 1:09:00 PM
Perfect mixture of blackberries, vanilla, and musk. Definitely stronger blackberry, but this makes it just a tad sweeter which I love. The musk and faint vanilla really round it out. I have smelled Trish #9 and this is very similar. The spray is a great way to have a light scent, but doesn't last a long time. I suggest layering it with the lotion and roll-on if you want a stronger scent. The spray bottle doesn't leak, the price is excellent, and Michelle's quality is outstanding!
Fragrances -Suds and Light - Body Mist in Pink Sugar
Dawn71675 5/23/2004 1:07:00 PM
I LOVE the Suds and Light dupe of Pink Sugar. I think I have it in nearly every product (lotion, spray, roll-on, scrub, soap, etc). The spray is very refreshing and scents my skin/hair/clothes with a light veil of fragrance. It's not super-strong or overpowering, but is great to layer with other items. I also use it on days where I'm in a rush and just want a light scent. Packaging is great (I like the short, fat bottles), the price is outstanding, and of course, the quality is excellent.
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Featherlite Souffle
Dawn71675 5/23/2004 1:03:00 PM
I really like the texture and consistency of this lotion. It is not an airy kind of texture; it's more like freshly made whipped cream that you make yourself. Creamy, light, and yummy! I have this in Pink Sugar and it smells great. Applies well, sinks in fast, and there is no greasy residue. The only reason I didn't give it 5 lipsticks is because of the packaging. I hate jar lotions because I hate dipping my fingers into them. Bottled lotions are just more convenient and easier to tote around. The quality of Michelle's lotions are amazing and I am a hugs Suds and Light fan!
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Shea Deluxe Lotion
Dawn71675 5/23/2004 12:59:00 PM
This is probably my favorite Suds and Light lotion formula. I like the Feather Lite Souffle as well, but the Shea Deluxe holds the scent for me so much better. It has a medium thick consistency, spreads well, and absorbs so fast on me. No greasy residue, no slick feeling...it's wonderful. I have this in lots of different scents and Pink Sugar is my favorite. I can JUST wear the Pink Sugar Shea Deluxe lotion and people will comment on it all day. (good things!) For less than $8 for an 8 oz bottle, you can't go wrong!
Scrubs -Suds and Light - Cotton Candy Shea Brown Sugar Scrub
Dawn71675 4/26/2004 8:25:00 AM
Probably the most amazing scrub I've used. The granules are perfect-enough to exfoliate and scrub, but not harsh at all like some other scrubs I've tried. At first, the brown sugar scent overpowered the Cotton Candy fragrance, but that was just from smelling it in the tub. Once I used it in the shower, the Cotton Candy scent came out and smelled SO great...I can't wait to get more products in this scent. My skin was left feeling silky but not greasy and scented nicely. I will definitely repurchase this scrub in other scents! :) My only complaint was that it leaked a little in transit-Michelle tried EVERYTHING to avoid it (sealing the lid with tape, putting it in its own bag)-so it's not big deal.
Chocolate Chip Cookie is my new favorite Yankee Candle scent. I always purchase the tarts first to test out the fragrance, and this is a winner. It fills our house with a smell of freshly baked cookies....complete with the burnt edges. It is so unique and so accurate-my husband came into the kitchen and asked what I had baked :) I just bought a bunch of the tarts to have a supply in case they discontinue it. I really hope they don't because it is a very comforting, warm scent.
Second bottle of this and I love it. My hair gets really snarly when it is wet, but I spray some of this all over, let it sit for a minute or two and then comb through. It never weighs my hair down and smells nice. Fairly inexpensive (about $8 at Trade Secret) and worth every penny to me. My hair is really fine and thin, and this helps a lot!
I really like the Scalp Therapy (I use the Protectives). I use it on the top 1/4th of my hair and then use a few different products on the rest. The Scalp Therapy really wakes you up in the morning with the minty scent and tingle on your head. I really like it but it is a bit pricey. Trade Secret sometimes has bonus bottles for about $20 for 2x the product of the regular size for the same price. I don't know if I've really noticed any results in using it (I've been using it for a few months) but perhaps my hair is just stubborn! I will definitely repurchase. It does not weigh down my fine hair at all.
This is a great product to help keep your eyeshadow from creasing. If you have super-oily lids like me, this will not solve the problem, but it definitely helps. I swipe a bit on with the applicator and then use a large eyeshadow brush to blend it until it's dried. This way, no finger oils are getting mixed in with it. It lasts at least 5 hours for me, but I still have creased eyeshadow by the end of the work day. It would probably work awesome for those in not-so-humid areas (I'm in South Texas). I've tried Benefit FYEye!, Clinique Touch Base, MAC Paints...and this does work the best.
Lotions/ Creams -Suds and Light - Goats milk & honey lotion - blackberry musk
Dawn71675 3/30/2004 2:40:00 PM
This is one of my absolute favorite Blackberry Musk scents. It is a bit sweeter than AZW to my nose which is very refreshing, but the musk definitely balances it out. A very soft, sweet, sexy scent that lasts a long time. The Goats Milk and Honey lotion makes my hands very soft and smooth. I keep this (and the spray) at work and everyone always asks me what smells so good :)
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Nature's Therapy Mega Moisture Nurturing Creme
Dawn71675 3/20/2004 11:32:00 AM
I love, love, love this conditioner! It smells great and makes my super-dry, color treated hair feel like silk. I only use it on the bottom 3/4 of my hair since it is pretty heavy and my hair is very fine. I use it about 4x a week and alternate with Nioxin Structure and Strength and the Sally's version of Joico KPak. I'm on my second tub of it and will definitely continue to buy it. My only complaint is that I wish they would put it in a squeeze bottle.
