Fragrances -L'Occitane - eau de miel (honey gentle water) [DISCONTINUED]

This is indeed lovely. It's sweet without being cloying and it really puts me in a good mood :) It reminds me of childhood...of candies and fresh air. I can't wait to grow my hair long again just so that I can spritz this and smell the sweet honied scent all day long! It makes me feel like I've stepped into the pages of Enid Blyton's works
Lotions/ Creams -Bath and Body Works - Sweet Pea body Lotion

Thanks to a very sweet swapper, I got to try this sweet smelling lotion. I think it's the exclusivity of B&BW in SG that is making me think this smells really good. It's a very girly smell. I like!
It isn't great and definitely not a HG but it does give me pretty pale-red flushed cheeks and lips. I was afraid it'd turn fuschia on me but it didn't :) It'll be great for casual days - just this and mascara and I'm ready to go. UPDATE: Now that i'm tanned, Benetint really gives me a just-been-at-the-pool-sunning flush! No one was able to tell i had cheek colour on. It's that super duper natural! My staple everyday blush for now since it goes with any m/u look of the day
Treatments (Eye) -Phytomer - Vie Age Concept Multi-Active Anti-ageing Eye Cream

This costs a whopping SGD218 iirc for a 15ml jar. I usually do not like conventional jar packaging - it comes with a spatula - but then again seeing that I paid so much for this cream, it's good to know I'll be scraping up every last bit of it! This cream gave me instantaneous radiance and flattened my eye bags almost immediately! Okay maybe not all of the bags but it definitely cut them down by half. My entire eye area looked brighter and lifted! Amazing. I shelled out the money on the spot! I would buy this again anytime!

I only got a sample of this precious and expensive day cream but I assume that just like it's eye cream, the packaging is a conventional jar. This is even more expensive than CDLM! However just like the eye cream, it imparts an immediate radiance and glow to my skin. I do see some lightening of those "natural" lines on my neck and so far no breakouts. So far I guess this cream is effective ie. it hydrates and imparts radiance but for the price - SGD488 - it isn't that impressive. Maybe I should give this cream another chance but since the sample's so small, I can only give my verdict based on a week's usage.
I was looking for a nice subtle and slightly smoky lilac-purple-burgandy eye look and this trio is just it! LB Cool palette was too cool and pastel for me so I'm glad I swapped for this! I get a subtle smoky purple eye look that has surprising depth despite it's so-so appearance when I first laid eyes on it.
Gels/Soaps -L'Occitane - Honey Harvest Hexagonal Soap

Great soft smelling soap that is genuinely honied. Leaves the skin soft and clean. The smell's really wonderful, sweet without being cloying. If you are a honey fan, you'd love this.
I loved this when it first came out. It was the fresh clean green scent I was looking for that didn't just smell citrussy. However like most perfumes I used to love, I get so sick of it after a bottle or two and usually tend not to use it again for a few years. I can see myself re-using this again but not now
I love the cute little tin! After so many raves and reading about it so much online, I decided to get one. Balm goes on light and minty but it's no big deal
This is one lipglass that seemed to work on all the faces I worked with. It is a beautiful shade of pinky-lilac and it is great with cool pink blush.
The little fluffy pink brush picks up just enough of the product for a light dusting all over although I prefer to use it as a blush even though it's so subtle it doesn't even look like I've got blusher on! Great stuff on its own, all over my face or over another blush
Horrible stinkbomb. I hate this to the core. Not only does it assault my olfactory nerves, it gets on my nerves..it just smells horrible! Unsophisticated, un-appealing, unbearable... Even the packaging irks me. Gives me a pounding headache too
I found the perfume only so-so but I loved the scent of Chance body lotion! Odd. It smells wonderful and leaves my skin nice and soft and smelling unlike Chance! Very odd. It is a little runny but it's perfect in this hot humid weather.
Great quality and just one candle can scent my entire apartment (it's a small apartment though!) I love the fact that it doesn't smoke while burning and I just pop the lid over the tin when I'm done with it - so there's not "after-smoke" either
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - Lavender Body Lotion

The packaging of the product looked great, a nice classy looking aluminium bottle and cap. Unscrew the cap and you'd wonder if the people in L'Occitane are a screw loose. The body milk itself is runny and it would have been good if there was some sort of stopper or smaller opening at the top of the bottle - it is quite hard to control the amount of body milk being poured out (one lipstick struck off for this oversight) However the body milk itself is wonderful. It moisturizes my body very well and SMELLS absolutely wonderful. It is moisturizing but feels light as air (this is very important in humid weather)! Best of all I can still feel how soft and smooth my skin is the next day!
