Best Spackle Money Can Buy! I love this stuff. I don't find it breaks me out and as long as I don't keep powdering all day long, it doesn't cake up on me either. You do have to put it on fast, which I find works best buy putting a bit on my finger tips, rubbing together on both hands and applying to my whole face like I would a moisturizer, being sure to blend it into my neck. I wear Buff and am pleased with the shade and the coverage. With this foundation my "freshen-up friends" are those little blue Clean & Clear Oil Blotting Sheets as they absorb the minimal shine/oil that hits mid-day no matter WHAT foundation I use, without adding any powdery cake. I get compliments on my "peaches and cream" complexion all the time which makes me giggle because I have rosacea on my cheeks and broken capillaries on my nose and apples of my cheeks and this foundation covers wonderfully. Those having issues with this I'm thinking the problem is in method of application or overkill on the powdering. This is my go-to makeup product, you know, the one you'd take on a desert island if you were stranded? Yeah, this is it.
I'm suprised at the low reviews this product has received. I've always had excellent results and often used it to "freshen" up my tone in between doing my roots. I think the trick is to be sure you're hair is lightened to a light enough shade...I've had great results and am sad that it's discontinued.
Such a happy fragrance! This smell has so many memories for me. It's funny because it's instantly recognizable too. Whenever I wear it someone says, "OMGosh, someone is wearing Sunflowers..." long after I can't even smell it anymore. I get positive responses when I wear it so it must jive with my chemistry. So sunshiney!

This is a HG fragrance for me. My husband LOVES any gourmand scent and this fragrance smells of a coconut sprinkled vanilla cupcake. He loves it. I do too for that matter. And at this price, it's a steal...it's by far my favorite coconut fragrance. It doesn't have any of the "play-doh" smell with my chemistry. Overall, it's a beautiful warm fragrance and I love it.
Love this smell. Perfect winter scent and whenever I wear it, I can close my eyes and be sitting on a comfy overstuffed chair, in my favorite sweater, with a big soft cuddly blanket, sipping warm tea and staring out the window into woods while it's softly raining...Yes, it's that powerful a fragrance for me. I love it. My hubby always says I smell good when I wear it too. A must have.
I love Dark Kiss - when I smell it, I smell earth and berries, like going berry picking just after a heavy rainfall or after someone has been digging up weeds in the garden surrounding their blackberry bush. It's such a delicious smell. I will be heading back to purchase the line!

My husband rarely comments on my perfumes other than to say, "Yeah, it smells pretty good" or "It's not bad" and then it's because I've asked him what he thought, not because he felt like offering an opinion. Well, I tried this on and when I got home he said, "Whatever you're wearing, that one smells good." So of course, we hopped in the car, drove over to BBW and I bought the entire line. I scored too because I'd taken one of those receipt surveys that get you $10 off a purchase of $30, it was during a B2G1F/B3G2F sale AND if you bought the EDT, you got a Body Lotion free. So for under $40 I got the EDT, the Body Lotion, the Hand Cream and the Shower Gel. I just wish they'd make this in the Shea Cashmere Hand Cream. The fact that they haven't expanded the line makes me worry that they will retire it. I hope not because this fragrance is AMAZING! It's such a warm, smooth scent and everyone I know LOVES it. When I got out of the shower after we'd gotten home after buying it, my husband said, "What did you spray back in the bedroom?" and I said, "My new stuff..." and he said, "Wow, that stuff DOES smell freakin' GOOD!" I'm sold.

I have found my newest HG scent! I bought it in the Shea Cashmere hand cream, the EDT, the mist, the Triple Moisture Cream and Triple Moisture Shower Cream as well as the Hand Gel Sanitizer and Moisturizing Hand Soap. So yeah, you could say I like this smell! LOL! Anyhow, I've gotten several compliments on it so far and my hubby likes it, which are all good things. The best part? I sprayed it on myself at 6:30am and here at noon I can still smell it like I just sprayed it on. For BBW, that's good! Now as far as the scent itself goes, it's got a powdery undertone, which I like as it makes it soft, but there's this crisp linen current to it that I just love. Do I smell like dryer sheets? A bit. Do I like it? Yes. I am the type to air dry my clothes after adding the Fabric Softener to the rinse cycle so the smell is more potent. I LOVE that smell. After all, cleanliness is next to godliness!
I adore this fragrance. After I bought it, I sprayed myself generously the following morning after getting out of the shower and by the time I got ready and left the house I could no longer smell it. "Oh well, at least it was cheap," I thought. Then ALL DAY LONG, people kept asking, "Ooh you smell nice! What are you wearing?" This kept happening long into the evening, so even though I personally can only smell it for about 15-30 minutes, everyone else can smell it still. Lesson to be learned: Go easy, if you keep spraying because you can't smell it, it may end up eating holes in someone elses nose!
I love, love, love this perfume. It smells so pretty. I get compliments constantly when wearing it. It makes me feel like a southern belle when I wear it. It is fairly strong so not for the faint of heart but for those who like leaving a signature scent in their wake, it's amazing. And it's super cheap!
I miss this one...it smelled just like Grape Bubblicious....sigh.
I think Love Spell smells like Sweetarts...my ex boyfriend LOVE this one as well as Sweet Temptation so consequently I don't wear them anymore due to bad mental associations, but as a fragrance I liked them.
I love this foundation! I was able to get it for a song at my CVS because they're clearancing out their line and had it all marked 75% off...good that I got it on sale but bad because now that I'm inlove with this I won't be able to find it in a year! I bought extra but what happens when that runs out? I hope it's just CVS that's doing this and not that Sally Hansen has stopped production of this fabulous line!
