Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Profumum Fiori d'Ambra
Labello 9/15/2012 6:01:00 PM
As far as description goes I totally agree with the review below, but moreover this perfume is simply magical and addictive, at least to me! I was looking for the perfect amber and tested sooo many! All of them were too powdery, too heavy or too incensy. This is perfect. Just what I was looking for: a warm sultry amber that lasts but is not cloying and overpowering. I suspect that I might have found my signature scent! Finally!
This is amazing! I went to smell this in a dept store a few weeks ago and the salesman sprayed me heavily with this. I was completely overwhelmed by the scent, but at the same time it lingered on my jacket for days and two people asked me the next day what smelled so good. It has haunted me ever since and i caved in and bought it yesterday. This smell is intoxicating. Like someone described in their review below it is like a dangerous toxic man you cant get away from and cant stop thinking about. This is how this fragrance is. To me it is fresh and citrusy and also deep and ambery at the same time. On me this lasts and lasts .... I think this might become my signature fragrance. I agree with some reviewers below that it might not be appropriate for the workplace, but used lightly i think its ok, unless you work in a very corporate and conservative office. simply divine and unusual.
This is a beautiful fragrance. Quite unusual too. I am generally not a huge fan of florals, but i fell in love with this scent. It really smells like fresh lilacs. When the initial flowery fresh note kind of wear off, it turns into a clean scent. Very pleasant and feminine. I can smell the cucumber in the dry down. Unfortunately it does not last long on my skin, but i noticed it lasts very long on clothes so i spray it on and then get dressed straight away so the clothes soak up a bit of it.
Treatments (Eye) -Clinique - All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage

I have to say I was sceptical to try this after I tried the Garnier roll on which is totally useless and awful. This however is totally different-amazing! When I wake up in the morning and my eyes are puffy the cold tip of the applicator is very refreshing. The actual product sinks in quickly and leaves the under eye area fresh looking and moisturised and ready for concealer. I have been using this for like 3 weeks now and I am really happy how the area under my eyes looks. I have to say I see less fine lines and overall look fresher. The tube seems small, but I have been using this day AND night everyday for 3 weeks and I didn't even use 1/4 of it so I think it will last a while. Will definitely repurchase after this runs out.
Eye Makeup Remover -Estee Lauder - Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

I really love this. Again not sure where the negative comments are coming from ... I used this for a long time and then due to the high price of this i switched to the Boots Simple make up remover. I used it for a while but this one you really have to rub and still doesnt remove every trace of makeup. I just had to rebuy it again b/c it really is the best i have tried. It is not oily, doesnt irritate the skin and removes every trace of makeup. The price is high for this sort of product but i dont think i can live without it so gotta splurge!
This is fantastic. I bought this because I was looking for a coral red lipstick and I found La Ravissante from this range. It is a beautiful colour which really looks good on my skintone and with my coloring. It is quite matte so looks very modern and cool. The packaging in divine! So sleek and shiny and modern. Absolutely beautiful. Will defninitely rebuy this if I ever run out ... which doesn't seem to be happening in the near future because the bullet is quite big. Highly recommended although not the cheapest ...
I really like this. It is a bit masculine, but strangely I am drawn to more masculine woody scents recently. When first sprayed on it is quite fresh and citrusy, but when it settles it is really lovely. To me it smells like a baby shamppo my mom used on me when I was a child. Maybe that is why I am drawn to it and like it so much? It really smells fresh and clean, but at the same time woody and mossy. To be honest it is quite unique. I like to layer this with L'Artisan's L'eau Ambre. It adds a bit more amber and makes it more sweet. Overall a very interesting scent. I love it, but would love it on a man as well.
I first smelled this when I was given a sample of it at the L'Artisan shop. I was a bit surprised at first. It was a very unusual scent. Nothing like I sniffed before. It grew on me and I used a whole sample and really liked it. Recently I had a look at the online L'Artisan boutique and remembering the sample I bought the 50 ml bottle for 25£ on sale, so a very good deal. I really like it. Today is quite a warm day and I thought for summer this might be too powdery and cloying, but it's not. It is lovely and soft. A mix of soft rose and violet. I think it will work even better in winter when the rose gets warmed up under winter clothes :) ! Love this fragrance, even though I think it is a 'love it or hate' it scent. I love unusual things so it is for me! some of my faves include: L'Artisan La Chasse aux Papillons, Ananas Fizz, Mimosa pour Moi, Hermes Jardin Mediterranee, Byredo Bal d'Afrique
Tinted Moisturizer -La Mer - tinted moisturizer in light
Labello 11/23/2010 9:55:00 AM
This is pretty expensive (50£), but I have to say it is the best tinted moisturiser ever. The texture is great, the coverage just right and it makes the skin look really dewy and fresh. It also has SPF18 so that's a plus. Also it lasted me almost a year! I would never expect it to last that long, but a little bit of this goes quite a long way. I will definitely be buying this again!
I think that this may be the perfect lip gloss. Not too sticky but not runny either. Nice packaging, very nice smell. The price is a bit steep at 16£. I have it in Julpe which is a translucent light pink. Just a nice fresh neutral color for every day. It is overall a great product and I am wanting to try it in other colours.
Daily Microfoliant was too harsh for my dry sensitive skin. This is perfect. In general, I don't think the grainy physical scrubs work for my sensitive skin. They just irritate it more. I was worried that this might be too strong, but it isn't. I use it once a week. I apply a thin layer of it to dry skin and let it sit for 10 -15 minutes. Then I wash it of with warm water and moisturise after with Dermalogica's Power Rich. These two combined with Dermalogica's Ultracalming cleanser have improved my skin greatly. I have no more dryness and the sun damage after the past summer and the pigmented spots have faded. My skin looks healthy and glowing and is brightter. I am a total Dermalogica convert.
Eye Makeup Remover -Paula's Choice - Gentle Touch Makeup Remover
Labello 12/20/2006 5:41:00 AM
After using this for like two months I am having an allergic reaction to this. This has felt and left my skin oily all along, but I had no bigger problems. Now I have dry, peeling lids and a small cyst on my lower lash line. I never had anything like this from any cosmetics. I think Clinique's eye make up remover is much better and I am going to stick to that. I don't know how people rave about this so much! I will never repurchase.
Sunscreen -Clarins - UV PLUS Protective Day Screen SPF 40
Labello 11/7/2006 7:41:00 AM
The bottle is very tiny indeed and I am anxious to find out how long it will last me. I have dry/sensitive skin and use this on top of Dermalogica's Power Rich. It is quite liquidy but due to that it spreads very easily, dries fast and leaves a nice matte finish. It has a very faint fragrance, but only detectable right after you apply it. Doesn't leave a white cast (even though I have olive skin).
Cleansers -Dermalogica - Essential Cleansing Solution
Labello 11/7/2006 7:37:00 AM
This cleanser is heaven sent. Together with Demalogica's Power Rich it has improved my skin greatly. My skin is dry/sensitive and until now I have been using PC's Skin Recovery cleanser and I thought it was gentle. But not compared to this. PC's still used to sting a little especially on the cheek area by my nose, where I usually have dry patches (specially in winter). If it keeps working so well, I will definitely repurchase.
I received a sample of it with my order and instantly feel in love. Even though it is extremely expensive (80£ for 50ml, it comes in 5 small tubes and each one is 10ml), I had to purchase it. I have very dry, sensitive skin and nothing was working for the peeling and dryness recently. This moisturizes and evens out the skintone. It really is fantastic. It has a slight silicony feel, but for my dry skin it is good. Overall, I love the product, but not the price, but if it continues working so well I will probably repurchase.
