Eye Shadow -Clinique - Color Surge Eyeshadow Trio in Come Heather

Great for someone with green eyes, like me. I wish the shades were the same size, or that the deepest purple had a bit more. I find myself using that the most out of the three. Love the look of this trio - the silver case is cute.
This does smell a great deal like potpourri - which can be very warm and soothing during winter. However, at first spray, I was also reminded of the product that the old fashioned barber shop used to use on my father's and brother's hair. Both those things make this a very reminiscent fragrance for me, but not one I would reach for often, if at all.
I bought this for me, since I love earthy scents and had been searching for a well-executed boozy note in a fragrance. When it arrived, I had already sprayed myself with two other samples, but my husband hadn't put anything on. Let me tell you, this stuff is amazing on a man. I kept getting whiffs of it all day, and it smelled very rich. The dirt and leather smells are there, but there is a clean note that is particularly nice as well. It only got better as it dried down. I am not sure that I could wear it, but it is remarkable on him.
I can see how this might be a beautiful scent on someone else. I catch hints of the bright citrusy prettiness, but mostly it smells "feral" (as another reviewer put it) on me as well. Very sharp, and unfriendly.My friend smelled my arm, and immediately said, " cat pee." I made him try it again 2 hours later, and he said, " No more cat pee, but BO." Sigh. I would definitely sample before purchasing, but I bet this is dreamy on someone with the right chemistry. I love grapefruit smells, so I was hoping this would be the perfect one for me. The search continues.
I was hesitant to try this, because I had heard it was similar to Stella. Stella was a sharp nightmare on me. Rosamor is much softer and cleaner than Stella. It has a hint of woodsiness that I like as well. The drydown, while comforting, smells pretty generic, so I would only buy this if it were on sale. I would wear it occasionally though, if I had it.
I really like this tea scent for summer. On application, the tea scent is very strong, but within minutes the mint comes through. And let me tell you, it is a lovely mint. Very crisp and yet sweet. Nice scent for hot weather.
Love this! Works perfectly on my thick curly hair. Just enough hold and definition without being crunchy at all. Tames my frizzies too. Also works really well when combined with Be Curly.

Love this product!The citrusy smell is great and the lotion is very moisturizing. Does take some time to sink in, but I use it at night, so this isn't a big issue for me. Would definitely purchase again.
I bought this for my husband, but of course I tried it on after I gave it to him. He isn't thrilled with it, but I love it on me. Very bright citrus opening (limey to me) which settles down into a soft amazing woodsy scent. Reminds me of walking through a forest in the summer - a warm woods fragrance vs. a cool one. Can be found at TJMaxx and Marshalls for cheap which is also a bonus!

This is a very yummy sweet fragrance - definitely MANGO with a hint of citrus from the bergamot. It reminds me of something from the 80's but I don't know what. ( Maybe hanging out in the mall all day without worries?! LOL!) Very nice summer/spring fragrance. Lasting power isn't amazing, but the bottle is pretty cool! Edited to say that the dry down (after 30 minutes) is VERY plastic-y. If sweet scents tend that way on you, you might want to avoid this one totally.
Licorice and sour milk. These are the only smells I got all day from wearing Simply. After 4 hours of no other notes coming through, I went and scrubbed my arm. Only then could I get a hint of vanilla, but that smelled of plastic. This actually started to make me nauseous the longer I wore it. Disappointing, because I have liked some Clinique fragrances.

Hmm. At first I really loved this stuff: the texture is great, the smell is light but nice. However, after using a whole can I noticed that while I had fewer hairs on my legs growing back, the ones that did grow back felt like barbed wire. I ended up using more razors than normal. I also didn't find it very moisturizing. Going back to skintimates, I guess.

As someone with very thick, wavy-curly, DRY hair, I usually just spend lots of money on deep conditioners, leave-ins, etc. I had never found a shampoo that made any difference in my hair until this one. This is my holy grail of shampoos - when I use this my hair is soft, smooth, and amazing. It is pricey, though, so I have not repurchased yet.

I love this stuff! It makes my hair smell amazing, and I have really noticed a difference in the softness of my hair since using this product.

I tried this one in the winter, and it didn't work for me then. I couldn't handle the floral part - it seemed acidic. However, I just tried this again today and I really love it. The chocolate is warm without being overpowering, and the floral is now very soft and feminine. I received compliments on this one and will be wearing it much more often in warmer weather.
