Lipstick -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Soothing Lipsheers [DISCONTINUED]

These really are like a lipstick, lipgloss, and lip balm combined into one. I have this in Sparkling Nude, and it's not like most nudes - it's kind of coral, but still light enough to make it a nude. It's beautiful. This little baby is moisturizing like a lip balm, provides color like a lipstick, and is shiny like a lipgloss. It also has SPF 20, which is an absolute must! My only complaint, the stick is so small :(

I thought this was ok. Not worth $300 and I could only use a few select products (the serum, the eye cream, and the night cream). I recently switched all my products over to Olay. My skin glows and Olay is much cheaper.
When I first tried this, I thought of Love Spell. I really think they smell nearly identical, this one without the sharpness of Love Spell. I happen to like Love Spell, so I like this too. UPDATE: I compared Love Spell and Pure Seduction side by side and couldn't really tell a difference. I love them both but can't figure out why they made a different colored duplicate of Love Spell.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Vanilla Lace Silkening Body Splash

This smells good enough to eat. It's a true vanilla, not cakey, not creamy, just vanilla. It's divine.
Wow, I'm finding that the MUA reviews on the VS scents aren't always what I agree with. Yes, I do agree that this smells like jello with whipped cream, but I really like it. It's also kind of similar to Love Spell, aren't they all though? This one has a perfect combination of red berries and sugar blossoms. It's really, really yummy. This one is by far one of my favorite VS scents. I cannot believe the low reviews!
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Blossoming Romance body splash

It's very strange...because I apparently have a hard time detecting scent in the VS stores. ;-) I tested this in the store, and thought "Oh my gosh, this is divine, my new favorite!" I also tested Pure Seduction and thought "Wow, there's no way I could ever wear that!" I ended up with both because it was a 5 for $20 sale. I got both of them home and found that Blossoming Romance was not going to be my favorite, afterall. I find it smelling too much like baby powder. Don't get me wrong, I still like it and find it wearable, but I'm not in love with it like I thought it was going to be.
I really love this scent. Unlike quite a few of the other VS scents, this isn't SO fruity, and I think it makes it more of a mature scent. It's floral with slight hints of fruitiness. It's very fresh and feminine.

I love this stuff. It smells WONDERFUL! The bottle is so pretty, and you get a lot of product for the price. I don't think, though, that I really believe with the conditioning claim. I mean how much skin could you really condition with just a few sprays? BUT I do think the fact that it contains oil helps with the staying power. Also, I don't know if I received a faulty bottle, but it's leaky.
I really didn't think I would, but I love Love Spell. It's a very unique scent, even though VS has made a lot of their scents similarly. Guys love it. Today was the first day I wore Love Spell in a very long time and my guy was behaving differently! (Must really be a Love Spell!)
I got 6 of these for a little over $20 at VS. There isn't anything particularly special about this one. The majority of VS scents are fruity/floral and this one fits right in, with this being more on the fruity side. I like it. UPDATE: Wanted to bump this up a lippie, as I like it way more than I originally did. It IS sweet, but it's not sickening because it's more tart. Can use and not get a headache by the end of the day. Will definately repurchase!
I really like this. It's one of the few VS scents that's sweet but not too fruity. It just smells really feminine and pretty. The lasting power isn't the greatest but I really don't mind re-applying. The $9 price tag on this isn't too bad, but I got 6 for a little over $20 at my local VS, which is VERY reasonable!
Wow. I'm impressed with this. I've had chapped lips for almost a week now and have tried everything - treatments from Sephora, treatments from the drugstore. This has been the only thing that's put a dent in it. Very soothing. Will definately keeps this in mind the next time I have a bad case of chapped lips.

Wonderful scrub. A step up from St. Ive's Apricot Scrub, which is what I was using before. Leaves my skin baby soft, smooth and glowy. Definate repurchase!
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Daily Regenerating Serum

I had tried the Total Effects serum when it came in the mail as a sample. I didn't really care for the super-strong fragrance. Recently, I was in need of a serum. I stood at Target staring at Total Effects and Regenerist serums, trying to decide which one to buy. I had never tried Regenerist, but I knew Total Effects was good but had a strong fragrance. I decided to go with Regenerist because the ingredients are close to the same and the Regenerist serum came with a free sample night cream. Am I glad I went with Regenerist! The fragrance is wonderful and I LOVE the effects of the serum!
Treatments -Olay - Regenerist Continuous Night Recovery Moisturizing Treatment

I'm in love with Olay. I have a bunch of there products and rotate because I love them all. This particular one, is a thick, rich, creamy night cream. It's lavender in color and it feels divine going on. It hydrates and keeps my skin looking glowy. I could do without the strong fragrance, but it's not a bad fragrance, so I'm willing to see past it.
