I am on my second bottle. I like the original also but it is too oily for me especially during the summer. I have problems with backacne so I try to stay away from products that is too heavy that may clog my pores. I like the way this feels and it gives my skin a slight sheen. Plus it is fragrance free so I can wear my regular perfume. Thumbs up.
I love the packaging of this perfume sheer pink glass. I was immediately drawn to the bottle so cute and pretty. I like the scent it is light and fresh great for the summer. However the scent is gone as soon as you put it on, very disappointing in that respect.

I was in Paris a few months ago and got a sniff of this. The fragrance stayed with me the whole day every, I told myself I would buy it when I come back to US, because it was more expensive in euro. I came back and got this in the toilette version. I'm not sure what version I tried in Paris cause that one last a long time. The toilette version I love but it fade so fast like I had nothing on. I would be very happy if it last a longer time.

I brought this on SaSa online. I have perm colored hair with dry ends. I used this in large amounts because my hair felt dry eventhough I put on alot. This will be good for someone who has slightly dry hair and not too damaged. It is not oily, but I feel it leaves a waxy coating behind. Unfortunely it didn't fix my dry, frizzy and tangled hair.
I bought small samples of these on ebay. Boy do I love it! I have thick perm colored hair with very dry ends. My hair was so frizzy and dry I could barely run my hair through it. After this shampoo my hair is regaining shine and softness with every wash. It is a bit heavy so I alternate with my other shampoo. Definitely worth a try if you have dry damaged hair.
I don't know why this didn't work for my hair unlike for most people. I have naturally straight asian hair, but ever since I permed and colored it it's looks like hay these days. I cut off most of my perm but there was still a bit left over frizz, so I try to blow it out straight. I follow the instructions to the very last detail. I tried so many different amount and combinations of styling products, but it didn't work for me. I don't like the way my hair feels and look. It felt rough and dull. So unfortunate.
Over the winter my face was getting kind of dry, I usually used Olos Natura hydrating gel mask which is difficult to find it in the US. I have combination skin:oily on the t zone. For some reason this mask actually made my skin drier and blotchy. Thank goodness I brought it on ebay at discount. Follow up: after some trial and error I discover this is best used at night before bed. Your face would be glowing the next day. Now I change my rating to 4
My hair is dry because of coloring and perming. But, my roots are oily. This shampoo really solve the problem. After washing my hair feels smooth and silky.

I have used many self tanning product this is the best and the price is reasonable. The fragrance is nice compare to other self tanner eg. jergen, victoria's secret. I have fair skin with yellow undertones and this self tanner gave me a nice sun kissed glow. I'm on my second tube right now. The consistency feels great not too oily or dry highly recommended.
Loose Powders -Laura Mercier - translucent loose powder

This is a really fine powder. It works great for setting makeup for everything eg foundation, lipstick, eye shadow. It's so natural looking without that white powder look even if you put on alot. I wear it sometimes with moisturizer just to keep away the shine. It works very well with the tinted moisturizer also. The tinted moisturizer makes my face a bit oily cause I have combo skin this powder makes it perfect.
I'm so glad I read this review. It's the best acne fighting solution out there. I don't think anything works as great as this. I use it over night on my new pimple and the next day it's gone. You would have to mix it with a clay mask for the powder to stay on your face otherwise it would just flake off.
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure

I love this product. I use it as a makeup remover and skin moisturizer. It's odorless and non greasy. So it doesn't clash with my perfume. I have eczema during the winter and this product works. I have not gotten eczema this winter since I started using this. It's a bit pricey $14 for a small little bottle, but I found it at www.vitacost.com for $7 Can't beat that right!
Conditioner -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Nourishing Conditioner

This is such a nice conditioner. I recently permed my hair so I have very dry hair the ends tend to be frizzy. This immediate smooths my hair. This can be used as a leave in conditioner also. It is not greasy or flaky as a leave in as a matter of fact it gives my hair a bit of a sheen. Very nice product the scents is wonderful. I even made a spray with it to moisten my hair. I use water and mix a small amount of the conditioner and spray it on my hair when I need some moisture.
Shampoo -Victoria's Secret - So Sexy Nourishing Shampoo
Pierra007 3/31/2007 11:14:00 PM
I love this shampoo. It lathers so nice and leaves my hair clean but not dry or tangled. I smells great too. I recently permed my hair and this shampoo works wonders for me. It leaves my hair soft and smooth. It's a bit pricey if you purchase it alone, so it's best to buy it when they have 3 for $21 special.
I am almost done with my first bottle. I love it the first time I smell it in Saks. It's light and fresh. It kind of remind me of apples. People at my job loves it. Its staying power is pretty good too.
