Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Exotic Embrace Fragrant Body Splash

The scent itself is hard to describe. It's a fruity floral with a slight aquatic note. But at the very base of this scent is femininity. This is what I wear when I want to evoke pure girlieness. It's lovely.
I love all Demeter's packaging, so there's one lipstick. As for the actual scent: it's a clean, fresh... well, watery scent. There is something else there that I can't place but like. Maybe it's the holiness ;) Anyhow, everyone who's smelled this has loved it, while I find it nice but not something I'll repurchase.
This has a nice, spicy scent (maybe a bit of clove?) that doesn't stick to your hair, so you can just enjoy it in the shower and forget about it =) I have very oily hair, and this stuff is great. It does just what it says: leaves my hair soft (I can feel a noticeable difference even when I'm rinsing it out!), shiny, and swingy. And my hair doesn't grease up as soon as it does when using other shampoos. Also, conditioning isn't necessary everyday with this shampoo, as it's so softening. Thumbs up!
Very interesting, sophisticated scent. I wear this when I want to feel sultry and classic. The floral and spice hits a perfect blend, in my opinion. Lasting power also is good, at least on me!
This is a good lipbalm - leaves a nice shine, moisturizes, basically, it does its job. I'd prefer it sink into the lips a little bit more, but at $3 a pop, especially with some of those proceeds going to good causes, I'm not complaining. I have this in Naked which is a nice, earthy, nonoverpowering scent.

I received a sample of this in a swap, and within a week I purchased a larger decant via eBay. It's just pure mmmmmmmm. I'm constantly sniffing my wrists when I wear this scent, it's a lovely, complicated, fruity-musky-spicy scent. Lasting power like whoa, as well.
Toners -Jane - Good Skin Auto Matte Mattifying Toner [DISCONTINUED]

I so miss this product. It smelled heavenly, like a juicy pear, and was the first toner *ever* to actually positively impact my skin - when I added it to my skincare regime my face cleared up by leaps and bounds. Bring it back, Jane!!

Smells heavenly, moisturizes wonderfully (and my feet are DRY), and it's affordable. Yay.
Well, it's affordable. But why would you want to afford such an abrasive, useless product in the first place? Seriously. I have skin that tends to benefit from scrubs (Burt's Bees and Benefit are the winners) but this stuff actually negatively impacted my skin & made me break out and look irritated. Ugh.
Scrubs -BeneFit Cosmetics - Honey Snap Out of It Face Scrub

It's on the expensive end, but after receiving a half-full jar in a swap, I'm going to be stopping by the BeneFit counter for more when it runs out. I *love* the honey scent, and my face looks glowingly lovely after I use it. I have the same one or two breakouts I always have, but I've come to accept that as just a fact of my life =P This is as good as it gets!
I got a sample of this from a kind swapper - I love the scent, it really does smell like pumpkin pie. I haven't tried it as body wash yet, but I washed my hair with it and only it last night: it cleaned & conditioned and left my hair looking at little more shiny than usual. Thumbs up.
Lip Gloss -Wet 'n' Wild - Megaflavors Gourmet Lip Gloss in Plum Dream

I love love love this scent. I've never heard of a plum-scented gloss before, but I'm glad I found this one! Nice sweet scent. I love the texture of the Gourmet Glosses, I love their packaging, and I love the translucent purple of this and the gorgeous shimmer. LOVE it.
I'd tried Angel Innocent and felt it was only so-so... today at Nordie's, I found the tester of Angel and gave it a go. I must be one of the lucky ones that has the right body chemistry, because it smelled fabulous on me. I asked most of my friends what they thought, and they all agreed I smelled lovely - even a perfect stranger told me I smelled good in it. Unsure if I'll purchase, though, as it's such a common scent.
This makes me want to cry. Grainy and smells like a roomfull of unwashed nastiness. Not fun.
You people are crazy. This DOES smell like honey, and yes, ylang-ylang... but I feel ylang-ylang has a gorgeous scent, so I'm not complaining. Anyhow, this stuff smells lovely, and does its soapy job. Yay.
