In my pursuit of a daytime HG fragrance I have come across Brit. Upon initial spritz the lime and pear come across as very refreshing but perhaps a little strong, the drydown is a lovely sugary vanilla. It makes me feel fresh and sweet, I like it but it is a bit strong for me : (

Not crazy about this stuff and I did use it with 3 step like the emphatic (caps maniac) below suggests. It simply is not for me, I do have a friend who swears by it though. It moisturizes effectively but it causes break-outs in my combo skin ahem, even with the battery acid toner. . .oops sorry 'clarifying lotion.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Body Butter - Brazil Nut

I love this stuff, it is a great moisturizer and smells wonderful. Best for winter when skin is dry because it does such a great job replenishing moisture to skin, I also put it on my lips when they are dry.
This does not make me 'happy', it makes me want to run away from myself screaming. Not a fan of florals though so that could be what bugs me.
I like this, I got it in Stawberry glaze and it quite literally feels like that stuff you put on Stawberry tarts. This may be good for some but not for others. Very moisturizing and not too goopy! UPDATE> I have the tube version of this. I bought the one in plum because I loved the Strawberry one so much and though I still like the gloss itself this one smells like....poo, really...poo. Yucky!

Good for the occassional spot but not for ladies who suffer from regular full-on breakouts. IMHO. I like it seems to work quickly for me!
I like this, it is a VERY strong tx though. Good for those of us with Huge pores!
I like it, but I have to use a VERY light hand. It lasts for ages too which is nice. I wonder what it would be like blended with a more spicy, vanilla-y (heehee) frag.?
I really wanted this to work. . .MUA below says it perfectly "like spackle". Not what I was expecting. It may be good for some though.
No! No! No! This stuff does nothing but dry out lips and clean out bank account.
Lip Treatments -Clinique - Superbalm Raspberry Tint

I do not usually wear high gloss, my hair sticks to it etc. but this one was GREAT! So great, in fact, that someone took it from my work station (insert poignant violin music here), That sucks but will purchase again.
I am a skincare junkie who is looking for my HG, I think this may be it. Wonderful, soft skin, no breakouts, decrease in fine lines, no build up and can also use as day moisturizer. Love this product, Correxion (it has a funky spelling) is great too, the one in the gold tube.
Used this as per Mua rec. and WOW. I put it on my T-zone because of my parking- garage sized pores and as time wore on there was this Crazy throbbing sensation where I applied it. Like Whoomp, WHoomp a pulse in my blackheads Arg, scary but worth it! Took it off and I had NO PORES, don't care if it's just because my skin is swollen, this stuff is the s*%t!

WOW! Thanks ladies, I got this pencil and it is perfect! I now have perfectly natural pinkish, sexy lips! You might want to put a moisturizing cream first it is a tiny bit drying.
Love this fragrance for Men. Yummy, sexy. . . Edible.
