This body splash definitely smells like "sugar candy" (vanilla and cotton candy) so for that it gets 3 lippies for not misleading consumers :). Kind of a childish fragrance, I'll admit. However, it was a gift. I also have the body wash. Both items are nice but not great. I, personally, will not repurchase BUT if you are a lover of sweet, foody smells give this a try!
My HG scrub! Gorgeous lemon scent (yes, very similar to Fresh's brown sugar body scrub but not as pricey!!) This has medium size granules that allow for a nice sloughing that doesn't feel like its taking your skin off (like sooo many other scrubs!) The smell is great but does not linger. The moisture left behind is soft and light-- not greasy or waxy! The price is a non-issue for the product! I love it!!!
I got this product for $2.00 and by the time I got the product home, it had leaked oil all over my bag. Hence the 1/5 rating for packaging!! Then it was time to test the product itself. Greasy was my first impression. Then I noticed the granules were large and more like shards! It seemed to mask its lack of exfoliating power with an inch of oily residue (yuck!) The smell was nice but this product just didn't deliver. I spent the next 10 minutes washing my body with a detergent-like soap that could cut through the grease!! I soon realized it was no mystery why the store I just purchased it at practically gave it away!! A MUCH more effective scrub is C.0. Bigelow Lemon Sugar Scrub! Try that one instead!!

Great scent, but the body splash lasts about 30 minutes (maybe!) I find myself using this on my bedsheets after washing :), for a quick refresh after a shower, and that's about it. Definitely not for a night on the town or if you are looking for a perfume. This is a nice smell, but not long lasting AT ALL.

I took Sexy Intrigue for a test-drive yesterday during my 1 hour and 30 min workout. . . I am a hardcore gym junkie and this is AMAZING!! I can't tell you how my gym buddy went on and on about how great I smelled!! Even my boyfriend said, "Wow you are so sweaty and you smell so fresh still!" Sexy intrigue is aptly named ;)!! Degree has ALWAYS been my HG but now I will always reach for this particular scent! Awesome staying power and sweat and odor protection!!
7 years ago this perfume was considered high-end. Now you can find a bottle for $16.99 at any Marshalls, Ross or TJ Maxx. HOWEVER, do not be deceived!!! Amor Amor may not cost an arm and a leg but it smells like a MILLION bucks! I describe this scent as a warm feminine smell (vanilla, musk) that is cut with a distinct soapy smell (seen in many men's fragrances). I favor warm, sultry scents but they are not always appropriate for daywear -- Amor Amor is the perfect compromise! Fresh enough for day, sexy enough for a hot date! Best of both worlds!!!!
Nice smell but kind of heavy despite the fact it leaves a soft feel to the hair. Seems to help smooth, but possibly only because the product is so heavy. I prefer a lighter leave-in, but this will do in a pinch.
Fuschia/red with blue undertones! AMAZING color! Like rubies for your lips ;)
Loooooooooooove this! Gorgeous!! Perfect frost hot pink!
The color is to-die-for, but the smell is a major turn-off :(!!!! Very plastic scent. Texture is thick and creamy, stays well.
ewwwwwwwwww! So gritty. Feels like a mouthful of sand! Absolutely gross!
