I think so far I'm the only girl here who wears this herself? I know it's technically a scent for men, but I adore this and it's lovely on my skin. Slightly masculine, but not too much in my opinion and totally unique. I was sick of the fact that so many scents these days all smell so similar and uninspired. This is a fantastic classic and one I can see myslef wearing for years to come.
I was really hoping this would work - I like the whole natural/herbal thing it has going on, but it was useless. It had no effect at all for me I'm afraid. I won't be buying again!
Fragrances -Lolita Lempicka - Lolita Lempicka Eau de Toilette

I love this stuff. Smells to me very much like a winter fragrance. It's a little like Angel (by Thierry Mugler is it?) in it's vanilla/chocolate-y notes, but in my opinion doesn't have that sickly note that Angel does. The bottle's great (though a pain when travelling as it has no lid, so I ended up decanting some into a smaller travel spray). It's one i've been complimented on too. Great!
I'm surprised this has such mixed reviews - I love it. I wear it more in summer months, as it's light and 'green-smelling' and fresh. It's also the only perfume that I've had at least 2 guys go crazy for...which surprised me a bit as it smells so wholesome. But still - I'm not complaining!

Like other people have said I find that this does seem to dry my lips out more (after the initial gloss has worn away) rather than nourish and soften them. It does look beautiful, and the smell is not un-pleasant (I can't quite put my finger on what it reminds me off...) Also, surprisingly it does seem to stop spots in their track if you dab a little bit on over night. So not bad, but I probably won't buy it again for my lips certainly.. maybe it's time to investigate the cult-like Khiels...
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

This is officially 'the best handcream ever' -take it from me! The packaging isn't hugely attractive, but don't let that put you off. It's cheap and a little goes a very long way, and within a few applications your hands will be completely transformed. It's quite greasy and takes a fair bit of rubbing in to be absorbed, but it's definitely worthwhile, and your hands will be incredibly soft and smooth once you've been using this a short while. I won't use anything else ever again.
Unlike some other people here, I thought the smell was gorgeous. But, that's about the best thing about it. It just didn't seem heavy-duty enough to really moisturise my hands - especially for during winter months. I'll be sticking to my Neutrogena Norwegian Formula I'm afraid.
