Smells like the kind of perfume old ladies wear. As soon as I took a whiff I was overpowered by a lavender/mothball smell. That smell lingers for hours and it gave me a headache. I may dislike the product based completely on my aversion to the smell. It didn't seem to make my hair very shiny either.
Shampoo -Aqua Glycolic - Shampoo and Body Cleanser

My daily shower gel - over time it's greatly improved the KP on my arms. It's also reduced the freckles on my chest and shoulders. I do need to use a moisturizer with this and I'm not wild about the scent of the shower gel, but it's made my skin look very refined and feel very, very soft.
Cleans up the eye area well enough, but it leaves an oily film which gets in my eyes.
Very soft, but they do shed if you wash them. I'd prefer it if they were a bit more durable, but while they last they are a lovely product to use.
Eyeliner -Bobbi Brown - Violet Ink Long-Wear Gel Liner

Great product that's easy to apply if you have the right eyeliner brush. Nice staying power. Always cap it very tightly or it will dry out. You can dip your brush in saline solution to add a bit of fluidity if it dries in the pot.
Great product and you can get a very fine line. However, the Loreal version is just as good at a third of the price.

Dirt cheap and absolutely fabulous. Not oily at all.
Very good coverage, but it can be a bit thick on the skin. Not my favorite, but I always have a pot of this around for times when my undereye circles are especially dark.

My nightly foot cream. Very nice product with a yummy smell.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Moisturinse in shower body lotion-extra dry skin

Works okay, but it seems a bit wasteful to wash off so much moisturizer. An easy to use product - especially if your a person who tends to forget to moisturize.
The stench makes this product unusable. I first I thought the product had gone rancid, because it smelled so strange.
Love it. Love-love-love it. Leaves my hair clean but not stripped. It's my regular shampoo and I wouldn't be without it.

It's okay. Not bad, not great, just okay.
Treatments -Caudalie - Vinoperfect Complexion Correcting Radiance Serum

Nice product which feels wonderful on the skin. Great under sunscreen. I think it's overpriced, but it does deliver results.
Styling Products -Aveda - Brilliant Spray-On Shine

You can get similar products at target for a fraction of the price. Nice packaging and a pleasant smell, but I won't purchase it again. It does a decent job, but so do lots of other similar products.
