Ok I love this BB cream. Now I have never tried another bb cream so I cannot really compare this product to another bb cream so I will review this product by what it claims on the packaging. Price- The retail price is around 17.99. Way too expensive for a drug store product in my opinion but I got it on sale for 13.99 at Walgreens and I was satisfied with that price. Coverage- I was in the market for a bb cream because I wanted something lighter than my regular foundation for the summer that also had an spf. I decided on a bb cream because they claim to do more for your skin then a tinted moisturizer. I applied this on my skin with my fingers which helped it sink in. I found that with a brush it looked a bit blotchy. When applied with my fingertips I was pleasantly suprised by the coverage. It provided more than a tinted moisturizer but less than foundation. I still had to use a bit of concealer under the eyes but other than that the product did a great job evening my botchy red skin. I intended to only wear this during the day but found that it felt so nice that I can wear it to a bigger event or night out by just mixing in a tiny bit of my foundation it looked great and provided even more coverage while still feeling light. This bb cream makes my skin feel so nice and healthy without feeling or looking cakey and I love that about it. It soesn't flake up around acne marks either. Color- I was dissapointed that they only had two colors and wished they made more. I purchased this in the light as I have fair skin. Initially I thought I had made a huge mistake because this product looks so dark straight out of the tube. Once rubbed in though, it seems to melt right in. If you are within a few shades of the color you should be ok because it blends so well, but if you have very very porclean skin I would look elsewhere. In the winter, I stop self tanning and go from fair to glow in the dark white very porclean skin so I may have to only use this in the summer.I'm afraid in the winter this wouldn't match. What it claims- This BB cream claims to illumintate you skin from the first use and improve your skin tone over time. I found this to be somewhat true. The first use does not illumintate you by making you skin brighter unfortunatley but I don't know of any product that does. At the same time though it doesn't have glitter particals or anything in it like some other products that claim to illumintate, so thats good. It does even out your skin tho and makes your skin look hydrated and healthy. I wouldn't say it illuminates but it definatley makes your skin look healthy! As for improving skin overtime, I have been using this product for about a month now and I am not sure if my skin hase improved or not from it. But I do love the way if looks and feels while wearing and I have not broken out from it. Smell- Unfortunatley there is an odor. I like the smell of it, kind of floral, but I can see why it would bother others. Overall I would repurchase, as long as its in the summer!
Cute little package and great adversting but this foundation is terrible. I purchased this when it came out many years ago when the whole mousse foundation craze began. I liked the way it looked when I first applied it but within an hour my face looked disgusting. It clung to my dry patches and old acne marks, and made my skin oily on my forehead. It looked as if the oil was trying to break through the foundation causing it to seperate and cake. This foundation was also reponsible for a massive breakout. Never used it again. This may sound mean but years later I noticed my sister's skin was looking horrible. Her foundation was always cakey, yet it never covered anything up. It didn't match her skin because it oxidized and it just looked gross. Suprise suprise I saw her open up her makeup bag and there was the dreaded mousse foundation. I don't want to offend her as she seems to like this foundation (for some reason) but I don't think she knows any better as she has never tried anything but this foundation. Just skip this foundation, its a bad idea all around. Looks horrible, is cakey and oxidizes, no thanks.
Bought the color azalea from the clearance bin at target. It's such a lovely shade of peachy bright pink but the quality is horrible. Left my lips patcy, dry, and within 30 minutes wore off on some areas of my lip. Wish the quality was better because like I said it's a lovely color.

This is a fresh scent for everyday! It lasts all day but is light enough to not offend anyone! I wore this for the first time last week and in the same day I got 3 compliments and asked what perfume I was wearing. This makes me feel light and happy :)

There is something amazing about this scent and I am not sure how to put my finger on it. After smelling this for the first time I had to look up the notes, but realized the notes listed I didn't smell at all. It doesn't change the way I feel about this perfume though. I absolutley adore it. It smells very clean and refreshing but at the same time makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. If I were to decribe this scent in any way it smeels like if you were in warm clean just out of the dryer sheets in a room full of green plants. That's the only way I can describe this. The scent is also very ADDICTING! One spray and I find myself smelling my clothes over and over again. Something about it makes me happy and lifts my mood! If I didn't know any better I would assume there were phermones in this, it makes me that happy. but alas, there are none. If I were to smell this one someone I may not even know they were wearing a perfume and may just think their clothes smell nice becuase it isn't a very perfumey smell, if that makes any sense. I gave the packaging a 3 because while cute, I got the mini bottle which didn't have a sprayer. I had to go out and buy a cheap sprayer from sally's becuase I hate to just dab perfume on. Other than that though I'd say next time you are in sephora or ulta try this one out. Garden of good and eva is like nothing you have ever smelled before!
I got this as a mini set along with the eva, gina , and lee lee scents. Ring my Bella was the only one I disliked. There is something very offensive about it. I love florals but this smells off. There is a sharpness when sprayed and smells to me, like a sour grape blow pop. I will probably never wear it out. Luckily for me though, the other three scents were amazing!
I love this as a summery scent. Usually I have an issue with victorias secret perfumes lasting on me but not this one! Lasts all day! it is a clean fruity floral and I just absolutley adore it. After hating the very sexy original I saw this one day browsing victorias secret at my mall and found it was on super clearance because it was limited edition and they were getting rid of it. I paid around $11 for the full sized perfume! This scent is just so fresh and clean I love it!
I received this as a gift from my mother in law and to be be honest I don't care for the scent. I usually am drawn to fresh fruity florals or light clean scents so this was a no go for me. The smell is intense to say the least. Very peppery and musky, an almost masculine scent. I have worn it on several occasions anyway though and didn't feel sexy wearing it. I felt like it was kind of an offensive scent only to be worn at night. I recently did find a bottle of "Very Sexy NOW" and love it! It's a completley different scent. If you didn't like the smell of very sexy, try very sexy now. On a side note my husband loves the smell of very sexy. Maybe thats why I keep it around.
I love this scent! Wore it on my honeymoon! Loads of compliments!
Ugh. the most overused overrated mens smell out there. It just smells so ordinary. I was having a conversation with the fragrance counter sales clerk at macy's and he agreed. It's what they recommened because it's a "safe and oriniary scent." So many men wear it! He also said to him it smelled like 3am in a downtown gay bar bathroom. LOL. Ladies buy your man something else!
Awesome scent. i believe the most similar perfume to JC is Sexy Little Things Nior Tease by Victorias Secret. I wont purchase this one becuase Victorias secret is cheaper :)
This is just amazing. by far one of my favortie scents.Iit's unique, It's fresh, and makes me happy whenever i wear it! Somehow there is no way to over do it on this perfume. I love it!
Love the bottle! I wore this several years ago and it was one of my first "grown up perfumes." However now smelling it again I find it is a pretty childish scent. Its not as bad as some sugary body sprays but it is a pretty sweet smell and not overly unpleasant. I guess my nose just changed the last couple of years. If you are a fan of sweet smells you will probably love this. I just wish to God they would bring back the vera wang rock princess. Now that stuff was the SHIZ!

I would never buy this for myself. I remember when I was a teenager i wore this becuase my grandma gave me the lotion and spray as a christmas gift. I seemed to like it ok then but now whenever I smell it it smells different. Maybe they changed the formula years ago?? I smell the vanilla alright but it's not a vanilla frosting or cookie scent. It kinda smells like it you mixed vanilla extract with play dough. Not a sophesticated scent but it's not the worst thing I have ever smelled. I think its an ok scent for a highschool or middle school girl.
I had to try this scent and I must say I am disappointed. It comes off as a warm scent, one for the fall or winter and also strikes me as a fruity floral. I am usually a fan of fruity florals especially if it is darker and more sultry but this was just not a good scent. It is quite a strong overpowering scent that gave me a headache immeaditly after spraying. There is nothing light about this at all. The fruit smell was thick, artificial and overpowering (think grape cough syrup) and the floral was too faint. It does last a long time though, although I didn't want it too. If this was lighter with less artificial smell it may be ok.
