Mmm Glogg. :) The smell is a nice warm and spicy kind of scent. It almost reminds me of a mixture of Cola and Dr. Pepper. Perfect to use in the winter time as it makes you feel very cozy afterwards. The only con I can think of is that the formula is a bit watery. However, it still lathers up quite well when you squirt it on a loofah.
Definitely will not be buying this product again. I thought I'd give it a try seeing how cheap it was, but in the end you get what you paid for. First, I could not get over how strong the product was scented. It has a very intense pineapple smell once you spray it. I'd suggest you use this in a well ventilated area, or get a headache like me. Second, I only got 2 uses out of this product before it broke down on me. By "broke down" I mean the product would only spray air when I pressed the nozzle. When I held the can, it felt completely empty! Like many others who reviewed this product, you don't get a lot of uses out of this. Don't waste your money!
The perfect product to get if you feel like pampering yourself after a long day. This bath bomb has a simple white color, nothing too flashy like some of Lush's other bath bombs. Once you drop it in the tub, it starts fizzing and releasing the sweet smelling goodness all through out the water. There's little flecks of cocoa butter that float around the surface, so you can massage it into your skin. This bath bomb has an amazing vanilla scent that leaves your skin subtly scented afterwards. It's very moisturizing, but the only downside is the greasy residue left in your bathtub.
I decided to get this eyeshadow because it was on sale at Sephora for $10. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have gotten it. While the shades are very pretty in the packaging, it isn't very pigmented. Both the yellow citron and light green came out pretty sheer, even with primer. If you are a person who likes a more sheer and subtle color, you might like this. On days where I want a natural sheen and subtle shimmer on my lids, I'll use this. On occasions, I have used the lighter citron color as a face highlighter, which works wonderfully.
I have to admit, what drew me into this scent was the fact that it strongly reminded me of Yakult. For those of you unfamiliar, Yakult is a Japanese probiotic milky-yogurt drink. Having grown up drinking this, I was very nostalgic and surprised when I realized how much this perfume smelled like the drink to me. It has a mildly sweet and tangy floral scent that brings up a smile every time I wear it. . Not everyone may agree with me, but that's my personal reason for enjoying this product.
One of my current favorite perfume to use! The scent itself is quite heavenly. It has a nice light fruity and sweet scent, though not too overpowering. After I spray this in the morning, I usually find myself sniffing this fragrance several times a day on myself. No shame! It makes me smile whenever I get a whiff of this lovely scent. Plus, the packaging is adorable, so win-win. :)

After I ran out of my favorite Lorac Front of the Line liquid liner, I wanted to find a liquid liner that was similar to its fine brush tip applicator without the cost. A few people recommended me Physician's Formula, and they sure weren't wrong! This is a good dupe for Lorac's eyeliner. The packaging is similar in its sleek, metallic, and pen-like form. I find the brush tip applicator gives me very exact precision when applying the liner. The pigmentation is quite good and doesn't smudge on my lids (I have very oil lids so this made me VERY happy). PLUS it came with the rebate sticker, so I basically got this liner for free! Even better! Target usually sells it for around $10, so next time I run out I will definitely go back for more.

One of my favorite liquid liners. The packaging itself is very small and sleek, metallic in color (very chic!), and pen-like. I like how the cap of the liner is very secure, so the brush tip is kept airtight and won't dry out. The pigment of the liner was very good and applied easily to my lids. The thin brush tip allows precision in application, from very thin and natural to thick and dramatic lines. To prevent too much of the ink flowing to the tip and getting a messy application, I usually store the liner with the tip facing upwards. Definitely recommend!

I have mixed feelings about this liner. The 1st time I bought this, it worked pretty well for me. The packaging is small, sleek, and portable. The felt tip liner is also handy for those who have little experience using liquid liners. When you take out the brush, it absorbs the liquid liner from the bottom portion of the packaging, and then transfers it to your eyes. My problem occurred when I repurchased this liner after my 1st one dried out. This time, the product lacked pigmentation and I had to keep retracing the liner on my eyelid to get the right color. The color was a murky gray with black spots. It also dried out fast, so I had to keep re-dipping my brush. Maybe I just got a defective one, but I won't be repurchasing it.
This is my absolute HG body moisturizer hands down. The consistency of this lotion is incredibly smooth and absorbs quickly into my skin, leaving no greasy residue. The skin is left absolutely silky smooth, unlike any other moisturizer I have used. Though it is a bit expensive, the quality of the product is very luxurious and worth every cent. I have eczema, so my skin gets very irritated if I don't keep it moisturized. This product seriously keeps me smooth all day until my next shower. Definitely recommend and will repurchase!

I received a trial size version of this product from a gift pack. Like some of the reviews on here, I found the consistency to be really waxy, sticky, and tacky. It felt like I was spreading wax all over my hands and would just sit on top of my skin. It didn't absorb very well for me. As for the scent, I found it to be an unpleasant almond plastic smell. Since I don't want to waste the product, I mainly use it on my cuticles before I sleep.
