I've been using this product on my tresses for about 5 months now and have grown to love it. My hair is fine in texture but I have tons of it. This product does not weigh my hair down like almost all other similar products. I apply it to towel dried hair then blow dry and sometimes run a pea size amount through it again for smoothing. My hair is left soft, shiny and voluminous. The scent is great as well!
This is a great product for removing any leftover self tanning product. The granuals are fine yet just enough to slough off the dead skin and uneven spots of a tan. I use this prior to using the St. Tropez self tanning mousse. The scent is great and it's not drying to my skin.

This product by far gives me the most realistic yet deep tan out of all I've tried. I'll take it over Clarins or tanning beds any day. The mousse is very light weight and completely easy to spread and rub in. I never streak. People are shocked when I tell them my tan is not real but from a self tanning product. The smell is pleasant too. I'm a fan for life.

I had forgotten how much I love the Phyto line. This particular product has been great for my highlighted hair. It restores moisture yet doesn't weigh it down. The scent is very pleasant too and that's always a bonus in my book!
I was at the International Beauty Show a couple months back and couldn't resist the offer to buy this product for only $50 (usually retails for around $150). We sell them in my salon so I wanted to test it out and be able to tell my clients about this product. It's been about 2 months now and I'm not sure if I see a difference or not. To be fair, I already have very long lashes; however, I've noticed they aren't quite as long as they used to be and they seem to break easier than once before. I will continue to use this product. I have used it on my eyebrows and have definitely seen new growth in my once over plucked areas.

This mask has quickly become a favorite. It's very gentle, all natural, smells great and leaves my skin super soft and hydrated. I'm very pleased. With the price it sells for, you can't go wrong.
Mario Badescu is one of my favorite lines because of his high quality and reasonable pricing. His products deliver results. The Honey Moisturizer is just right for my skin and works great under makeup. The smell is pleasant.

The texture is lightweight but gives good hydration. The scent is soft and pleasant. I recommend it for normal to dry/dehydrated skin.

I used this when I was in my early 20's and really liked it. Now I need something that does a little bit more for fine lines, etc. A good product to moisturize lightly and sit under makeup.

I first discovered this product while applying it to my nephew's dry skin on his fuzzy little baby head. I thought it looked like it could work on my lips so I tried it out and voila! A great product for lips (especially as a night treatment). Good for cuticles and severely rough patches of skin. Can be greasy so I don't recommend for large areas.
This reminded me far too much of Issey Miyake. Not a bad thing but someone is the copy cat in this duo. Light, refreshing but the scent doesn't last long.
Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Rapture EDT or EDP

Perhaps it stems from my years of managing Victoria's Secret but this fragrance reeks of "cheapness" to me. It smells like a scent you could buy at a drugstore. The packaging is tacky, the smell is cheap and overpowering and really I've nothing good to say about this so I'll end now.
I love the way this smells. Very light and feminine. Not a scent I would wear too often but enjoy the scent.
Fragrances -Trish McEvoy - Blackberry and Vanilla Musk #9 EDP

Warm, feminine and sensual.
Not my typical fragrance but very pleasant. Casual, summery, everything the title would conjure up.
