Great scent that actually has staying power, great to layer with the shower gel.

I give this 3 lippies for the scent. The cream is OK for moisturizing, but teh pricetag is ridiculous-$36--I think I'll pass & stick with my Ahava hand cream.
Eyeliner -MAC - Powerpoint Eyeliner - Forever Green

have been getting really bored with MAC and their wimsical but unwearable color schemes. Honestlty, this pencil really threw me for a loop. I have stopped using the eye kohl and I alreadu had 3 green eye liners, plus all teh powder stuff...untilk I stumbled upon this. This looks amazing on my olive green eyes it just makes them defined enough without looking too overpowered. The color is complex, a seemingly medium forest green shimmer it flashes brown to me. Very pretty and hard to do justice with my description--you must check this out. Glides on smoothly, and lasting power is pretty good too, although I will have to test it in the hot days of summer.
This is a great smelling lotion. I don't find it to smell bad, it smells like buttercream frosting on me. The lotion is rather this, although I still find it moisturizing. I took off one lippie as the scent fades ratehr quickly.
Great basic gel blush--reminds me a lot of clinique black honey gel blush. The shade is a browned wine color--very versatile for that "I've been playing in the snow" glow. To be picky about the name a bit--I wouldn't recommend this for brides though--the blush is translucent--and I believe in more coverage for wedding day photos. YMMV
This shade is a bright shimmery peach. To me it's a gel-based version of NARS orgasm, without the glitter. Just brightens up my complexion without looking tacky--very lovely.
I highly recommend this set (the sahdes seem pretty universal--but I wonder if they would work on deeper skin tones). All three shades a re great. blushing bride is a great everyday basic. Tipsy is a playful peach. and the highlighter is very subtle. the sizes are great--it takes me forever to use up blush--which rarely happens, so I appreciate that these are portable, but still a good size. Recommend these highly.
Finally--a sheer white n/p form OPI--no pink or beige--just right. this is a great basic shade to add to your nailpolish collection. I highly recommend it.

I am only giving this 2 lippies for the nice scent--really that's it--no other beneficial qualities of this product...it left my curly/wavy hair frizzy, didn't add any moisture, and I even felt that my hair seemed "crunchy"--blah--I cannot recommend this product. Try Fresh hair cream instead.

I didn't really see any benefit from using this product. it just didn't seem to do much. I tried samples of this--but will not be purchasing it.
I tried samples of this cleanser. I didn't like it enough to purcjase. It was a bit much for me--even though my skin is conbo, it's not that oily now that it's late fall. My skin felt a bit tight, and I am not sure that this product removed all my make-up. I may try it again in the summer when my skin is oilier.
I agree with the previous reviewer, the only thing this product has going for it is the nice scent. The shampoo was too drying on my scalp and just made me itch and flake more. I had to toss it.
I recently decided that I needed a clarifying shampoo, and chose this one based on teh reviews. As usual--the MUA did not fail. I'll start with the scent--which is a nice fresh pink grapefruit. The shampoo is gentle enough while still doinf its job. I absolutely love it & it's making my color look better w/out stripping it.
Out of all the boscia products I tried this one is a keeper. It comes in a tube and is a gel like product with beaded granules that do not feel harsh. I didn't experience much foaming, but it was easy to apply and rinse off. It felt gentle as well. The only thing is that I had to follow with a moisturizer as it left my combo skin feeling a bit "tight." This does not detract any from the product IMO. The scent is light and non-intrusive, reminds me of spa products, very light and botanical.
This candle is awesome! Very nice scent throw and concentrated fragrance. It contains:Iris, Sweeet Pea and Violet Leaves. The scent is a nice fresh and imtoxicating floral. This has to be my favorite candle scent right now. Definitely recommend this one.
