Don't think you're missing out, down there. The quality of their clothing has seriously depreciated here in the last couple years. I still buy all my lingerie there, due to a lack of stores in my area and since Frederick of Hollywood's quality is cheap as dirt, not to mention tAcKy.
The scent is wonderful at first, but don't go overboard. After a while, the sweetness is somewhat headache inducing. The guys seem to love it though, but then again, what guys doesn't like the scent of candy on a lady's skin? Now what lady likes to smell like her daughter's tootie-fruitie body mist? It's novelty, but gets old quickly.
It's the ultimate fragrance for people that like coconut, vanilla, tan oil, tropical scents. I spray fragrance in my hair, because it seems to absorb the scent the best and make it last, so this perfume last a while and doesn't die down. It is certainly a summer scent and a bottle should last you a couple years if you only use it during the summer time. It warms you up and makes you feel like your on the beach. Just plain delicious.
I have straight hair and I use gel to curl it with a diffuser. This product did not volumize but left my hair a wavy limp look. It did nothing but put gunk in my hair and harden it. A zillion flyaways also. Waste of money for this type of style. Never buying again. On the other hand, if you liked the scrunched look and are looking for a gel, John Frieda's Frizz-Eaze Corrective Styling Gel is the best I can find, but a little pricey for the amount.

I have long hair that falls to the small of my back, so it's not suprising to say my ends need a lot of attention. I use this conitioner on the length of my hair and really coat the tips with it, avoiding my scalp because I tend to be oily there. It leaves my hair ultra sleek and smooth with a shine that lands me compliments up the kazoo. The best part? It never, never weights down my hair like other hair products, and with this much hair, I can't afford heavyness. Thought about taking off a lippie because of the smell, but my boyfriend loves it; it's this grape smell you would think to find in a child's conditioner, BUT I never have to battle with tangles which is so pleasent with lengthy hair. This product is definitely on my HG list.
My HG in acne target treatments! I've been using this for a little over a year. I'd definitely not recommend this for anyone with sensative skin, but for the oily girls like me, this is a easy, inexpensive treatment. I'm the kind of girl that'll wake up with what feels practically like a thin layer of oil on my face's T-zone. I even use this as prevention, applying a thin layer at night, and I can't think of a time I've woken up with a new pimple when doing so. It barely has a fragrance, despite what another review said and it's easy to find. <3 this product.
My feet must be mutant or something, because this product had about the same affect on my feet as plain ol' lotion would have. I exfoliated before hand also. My feet aren't excessively calloused or dry, but once it dried, my feet felt exactly like it did before. The smell is a little too fruity, but some people like that. I on the other hand like more mint; it's just so fresh feeling and not so candy-sweet. Eh, I guess the scent is a personal opinion kind of thing, but the reason for the two lippies is because it seemed to do the job of any lotion. Results: less that thrilling.
I absolutely adore this product. Adore. It's shrine worthy. The funny thing? It never touches my face. I have a pretty oil face and don't need much moisture in that area, so I use cleansers geared toward taming my oily skin type. Instead, I use after I soap in the shower. I put a thin layer on my body and let stand for a minute or so, while I do other things in the shower such as facial cleansing (not with Cetaphil). Why do I do this? Because I get compliments daily from people about how baby-soft my skin is, that's why! It helps maintain moisture in your skin, which seriously comes in handy during the summer when just stepping outside in the sun can rob your body of moisture. The week I switched my regimine to one with cetaphil my boyfriend commented on how soft my skin had become. Talk about a sweet reward. Even better, my boss was talking to me and placed her hand on my arm as a gesture and stopped mid-statement to exclaim, "My god, you're skin is soft!" Yeah, you should have seen the grin on my face while I was walking away. For the amount you get, it's not so much of a bad price, but I use it on my whole body compared to just a little patch of skin refered to as a face. Still, a little goes a looong way. It sells in stores around here for about $9. Here's a hint, if you're military, go to your AFEES or whatever might serve you, and they should have a off-brand version of it right next to the Cetaphil. I can't tell the slightest difference. Best part? it's only about $4!! So if your looking for softer skin, this stuff is amazing. A-flippin'-mazing!
The package is an eye catcher, but don't let that fool you into immediatly buying the product. It's either everything you expect or a total bummer.If you're looking for a plumper that hydrates, fills in the lines of your lips (plumps), adds a natural flush, and has a, what I think, cooling sensation, that's exactly what this product delivers. It's thicker than most plumpers, such as DuWop, which I personally enjoy, but doesn't feel too sticky. The tingle kicks in only a couple seconds after application and last for about a minute or so before the numbing sets in. I'd say it lasted me about 30 minutes before the tingle and flush left my lips, BUT my lips were still moisturized and the lines weren't anywhere to be found. This might be especially nice for someone in their 40's to fill in the creases in their pouts that time has etched, or anyone with lines. You get a lot more for your money, compared to other plumpers, which is a plus, and also, the package is like Lancome's Juicy Tubes, making for easy and non-messy application. If you're looking for a dramatic Angelina look, save your money. Seriously, 'cause there isn't a plumper on the market that'll give you that, and you'll need that cash for collagen injections. I'd recommend using a tester at your local Vickie's before diving into your wallet.
