Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Fresh Scents By Terri - Zoe (oil)
GabbieC 8/16/2005 8:37:00 AM
I am a fan of light, white musks and this is in a similar category. Soft, very slightly powdery clean musk scent. I have the spray and the lotion and with both the scent stays for quite some time. I also have to say the customer service is great. When I first received the lotion it didn't have much of a smell, after an email to the company, I received two vials of the oil version of Zoe to mix in the lotion and now it is just right. A nice, light everyday scent.
Deodorants -Fresh - Roll-on Sugar, Deodorant and Antiperspirant
GabbieC 6/27/2005 12:14:00 PM
After reading all of the great reviews I was hopeful to finally find a great anti-perspirant as I unfortunately do sweat and not prespire. I had been using Lady Mitchum with success, but I am always on the lookout for something that will be better. So, I bit the bullet and paid the $16 for this from beauty.com. I have used it for a week now and I have to say it smells great and keeps odor at bay but it fails me in the anti-perspirant realm. Perhaps I'll break it out again in the winter and see how it goes but it just isn't strong enough for me in the summer months.
I'm not a citrus lover but this really has a nice, orangy smell. The cleanser does leave a nice clean feeling on the skin, doesn't dry me out and leaves a faint smell on my skin. However, it left a nice small in the bathroom for hours after.
This is an o.k. scrub. I like the fact that the granules are a good size to get a nice scrub going and that it lathers. The scent to me is like hazelnut. It's an average scrub and I got it at TJ Maxx for $5.99. I would not have paid the retail $25 for it.
Treatments -Kiehls - Imperiale Moisturizing Cuticle Creme [DISCONTINUED]

During the winter months my cuticles get dry and crack and bleed. This thick cream is great. Like others have said, you only need a small dot on each nail. It keeps the cuticles and nails moisturized and looking healthy. I like this much better than Burt's Bees Lemon Cuticle Cream since it isn't as greasy as the Burt's.
A dual ended lip gloss. Once side is a frosty bronze color and the other side is a frosty light pink. They have a minty flavor and the packaging is great. I just didn't think they would be so frosty. I find that I need to wear them together to get a good, wearable color.
I saw this and thought that it may be a tad bright, but on it is a lovely pinky/orange color. It just brightens up your face. This has some fine glitter in it but you can't really feel it on your lips and it has fairly decent staying power. Great for the summer.
Hair -Alberto Vo5 - Fresh Vanilla Bean Shampoo & Conditioner
GabbieC 5/20/2004 3:03:00 PM
I have shoulder lenght color treated hair and these actually don't dry out my hair and it is still easy to comb thru after the shower. The best part is that the fresh, slightly floral vanilla scent lasts the whole day.
I purchased both the shampoo and conditioner since it says it keeps color 78% longer. I have only been using it two weeks so I can't yet vouch for the color-keeping properties. It has a nice floral/fruity smell, not overpowering and it has a low later. So far it seems good but I'm not overwhelmed with it. UPDATE; This and the conditioner really dried out my hair and I've stopped using it
Lotions/ Creams -Amber's Daisy - Buttercream Shea and Aloe Body Cream

Although I love the formulation, the buttercream scent has a cherry cough syrup smell that ruins it.
Lotions/ Creams -Bliss Labs - Vanilla + bergamot body butter
GabbieC 4/6/2004 4:31:00 PM
I just bought this today and I cannot stop putting this on my hands. The smell is a delicious vanilla smell (not foody) with a bit of amber and bergamot. It recommends using this right after the shower(I'll update on that later) but on my hands this is really moisturizing and not greasy. I am sniffing my hands as I write this.
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15 - Naked Pink
GabbieC 4/6/2004 4:28:00 PM
I was never one for the nude lip look because I have very pigmented lips and I dislike the brown lip syndrome. This has just the right combo of pink with a touch of nude color to give a nice, natural look without being obvious. It also gives a nice shine to the lips as well. I lost my first one and even bought another I like it so much.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
GabbieC 2/11/2004 9:57:00 AM
This is a great eye cream. I have tried many others but this is the only one I have used that does not cause milia. It is very hydrating and does appear to keep the wrinkles at bay. Use a small amount and rub between your fingers to emulsify before applying to the under eye area.
Lotions/ Creams -Thierry Mugler - Angel- Voile Celeste Celestial Body Lotion
GabbieC 12/5/2003 10:17:00 AM
I love Angel but sometimes the perfume is a bit much. This medium weight moisturizer leave enough scent on this skin without overwhelming you. It lasts a few hours on my skin. A good alternative if you like the smell but don't want to purchase the perfume.
Again, looks like a neon pink in the tube but on my pigmented lips this gives a nice light pink shine and makes my lips look fuller. Good for a neutral lip when doing a smokey eye.
