Lotions/ Creams -Queen Helene - Cocoa Butter Creme

Granted, this product is a bit greasy, and I would not use it on my body. On the other hand, it makes a fabulous foot cream. Slather this buttery formula on and slip into a pair of socks, and your feet will be wonderfully soft in the morning. If you are looking for a chocolatey scent, Palmer's is better and more true, but this has a nice beachy-coconut smell that I like as well.
I got this free with a Sephora order back in December. I would describe Pumpkin Pie as strictly average. It performed average as a body wash, no dryness, but no moisturization either. I have relatively short hair, and it was a decent shampoo for me, so the 4 oz bottle was used up that way. As for the scent, the only real note I detected was cloves, which wasn't bad, but I guess I was expecting something a lot more heavenly and warm. Still, I wouldn't buy this in the full size. I have found drugstore bodywashes that perform much better for a fifth of the price.

Love the color, but like the other reviewer, the scent was enough to put me off this and never buy it again.

Very wonderful quality shampoo that does not strip my hair and cleans wonderfully. My fine hair likes it. Thumbs up!
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Calming Comfort Baby Lotion

Overall, this is a wonderful moisturizing lotion that lasts all day. The scent it not offensive and very light, but the scent is anything but vanilla lavender to me. It is more of a sweet, powdery smell.
Lotions/ Creams -Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Lotion

This is probably the most basic lotion on the shelf today. I have walked by it many times without a second glance. That said, it is one of the most wonderful lotions that I have ever used. I love that it is nongreasy, and the fact that it is fragrance free is a huge plus for me. I feel that it really does moisturize my skin for 24 hours, and it is the best for winter-dry skin. It is a bit pricier than other drugstore lotions, but very worth it. Proof that good things can come in plain packages.
The first thing that I noticed was the minty tingle, which may be nice for some, but I am not a huge fan of. It does moisturize my lips for awhile, but it dissipates pretty quickly. And, it is not greasy. Still, I don't think I will repurchase.
I basically can't say anything that hasn't been said already. A huge waste of money, burning legs, and a major headache from the "refreshing citrus fragrance". If you see this, run the other way.
I got this in ballerina. Looked great in the package but it turned out to be a big disappointment to me. The cherry flavor was terrible, and the grit of the glitter was too much. The color was alright, but I think it would flatter someone with a cooler complexion more.
This product is definitely too sticky/heavy for the warmer months, and the scent was getting a bit much for me, it is very intense. It also seemed to peel off of my skin, rather than moisturize. I tried one other formula (shea), with the same results. Wouldn't buy again.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

A sample of this was my first venture into this line, and I don't want to continue. A shame too, since this is probably the best cream that I have ever put on my face. I have never seen such instant results with anything before, my face was instantly brighter. But the horrible smell was enough to turn me away from it for good. This smells like rotting perm solution, and it stays around until you wash it off. So absolutely vile, it literally made me feel sick. I just could not take it, no matter what the results were. I'm glad I didn't purchase it.
