I really love this moisturizer. It glides on really smooth and gives my skin a dewy look and glow. Another good thing about it is that it lets makeup application go flawlessly (such as foundation, concealer, etc), cause it provides a smooth base. I believe it made my skin more even toned as well. Will keep on purchasing.

I decided to try this EDP based on positive reviews and because of recommendation of a friend of mine. When I sprayed it on a test paper, the first thing I smelled is definitely roses and roses and roses, and I am not a big fan of flower scents. But when I sprayed it on my wrist...it was a different story. Sure, it was crisp roses at first "sniff" but after a while, the scent became warm, comforting, and somewhat musky, and this is when I fell in love with it. I gave it 4 stars because there is something in my fragrance collection that tops it (Burberry Classic such a beautiful complex scent) and the price is way too hight (over 100USD for 50 ml!!!!), but still a great scent nonetheless. I can see myself using it day or night. Many people said it's a fall/winter scent but I don't believe in that. A great scent is a great scent any season.
OMG!!! So warm yet cool, sweet yet dry, fresh yet comforting and cozy. It is so complex and so interesting. I think I found my new signature fragrance! The dry down reminds me a bit of my Hermes Eau des Merveilles, because of the woodyness, but sweeter and warmer. I don't smell any peach on the dry down, just wonderful woody freshness. Works very well with my body chemistry. What a wonderful fragrance, you can't go wrong with this one! Simply wow!
Amazing! I smell so clean and fresh and I feel so confident when I wear this fragrance! I was sitting next to my friend the other day and she said "it smells like soap here", lol, I said "that's me!!".
Great mascara! Separates, defines and NO clumps! It goes on lightly, so you apply as much or as little as you want, you have total control.
wow, what an unusual fragrance! i am not good at distinguishing particular notes of a fragrance so therefore o will describe this ETD in other ways: fresh, earthy, mysterious, clean, crisp yet warm, has depth, character, sexy. i am not a fan of fruity, flowery, sweet scents, so this one works perfectly for me. so many perfumes on the market, so many clones...but this one is in a class or category of its own! simply unique!
this scent does not work on my body...too heavy, strong and smells grandmaish, lol. I gave it 2 and not 1 because i have tried worse.
What the he'll is that???? Got a sample, and on me it smelled like cigars mixed with sugar!! Oh my, I had to wash it off asap, just could not stand it.
I am a fan of unisex fragnance, I hate anything fruity or floral or sweet. I have been using D&G light blue for the past year and decided I need something new. I must say this is an amazing scent. I have no idea about picking out the particular ingredients of a scent, but I will describe it as such: complex, fresh, greenish, clean. A fragnance for everyday, not overpowering, just subtle and sexy. It has that " fresh out of a shower" quality to it which I crave for in a fragnance. On me, the scent went really feminine, I can not see a man using it. On me, it lost it's initial unisex quality and went toward a softer, warmer, feminine side. I absolutely love it, I keep on snuffing my wrist all day. I did not give it 5/5 because the scent does not really last too long. But I love it! Perfect gift for any lady, just a neutral sexy scent. Packaging is simple yet elegant...hey, it's Cartier afterall!
This is a great product. I have been using it for many years. It works overnight for me to take care of cracks on the sides of the mouth, irritations on my mouth, etc. But I don't use it as a regular lip balm, for that I use Blistex DTC.

An absolute favourite of mine and I went through tons of lip balms over the past 15 years. It leaves your lips moisturized, soft and very kissable!! :)) I am seriously addicted to this product, I always keep in in my purse so I can use in on a go.
This is the only concealer I use and I absolutely love it. I use it around the nose, under the eyes, and on my blemishes. I usually put mineral powder makeup over it, and I am good to go! Last a long time as well....one tube lasted me almost 2 years and I use it DAILY.
Great soap! I actually use it on my face to remove makeup. It never dried my skin out and never made me feel like I am using soap on my face. I can say that I prefer this soap on my face over many expensive face washes out there.

Horrible product!!! Left my hair ORANGE for months, even though the shade on the box was a warm dark blonde!! Never really washed out! I recoloured my hair with a permanent dye. If you are looking for a good semo permanent, Natural Instincts is an excellent option, I loved it.

Great lotion, leaves my skin so soft and "dewy" looking. I apply it EVERYWHERE :) Smells great too! Not sure about reducing my post pregnancy stretchmarks, but this is the lotion I reach for after my shower, and I have plenty of them (lotions, not showers, lol), including some very expensive ones.
