Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - endless love body spray

I am so suprised of all the negative reviews on here! I can see how this reminds others of a shampoo; It also somewhat reminds me of BBW "Winter Candy Apple" scented perfume but a little more floral. I find this scent to overall be very fresh and clean but at the same time not overwhelming. This is a perfume I can wear to work everyday and not have to worry about it offending anyone, I just wish that it had more staying power and siliage. This is one of my favorite scents!
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

I wanted to like this cleanser so bad because i'm such a Philosophy fan however this cleanser did nothing for me. It failed to take off all my makeup even though I don't consider myself a heavy makeup wearer. It did not give my face that "clean" feeling that other cleansers do, it felt like I was washing my face with something that was going to leave it feeling oily and worse off than before. I ended up giving this cleanser away unfortunatly.
Like other's have mentioned; this product uses science, not magic. For significant results to been seen time needs to pass. At first I was unsure if this was really working, but after a couple weeks I started to see improvements. Now, I do not want to be without this product! It has actually helped with my acne, skin texture and skin tone; I'm almost comfortable enough to not wear makeup during the day because It has helped so much. Will definitely keep repurchasing despite the price since I would be spending the money regardless in order to find products that work.
Fragrances -Viktor & Rolf - Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb

This is not usually the type of perfume I wear; I normally go for the classic/clean perfumes...however it caught my attention at Sephora for some reason. I was hesitant about shelling out the money for such an expensive perfume since these types of perfumes tend to give me headaches, but I took a chance on this one. So far it hasn't given me any headaches and although it may smell strong at first but it isn't overpowering at all. It almost reminds me of Vera Wang's "Princess" for some reason but better.... it is subtley sweet yet fresh at the same time and it has a beautiful dry down. This works well with my body chemistry and has great staying power.
I can definitely see why some people are turned off by the smell of the lip gloss, but to me it accurately smells of honey so maybe some just do not like the strong smell of honey in general? I love the the liner and lipstick duo (which has a great vanilla smell) and for me this lip set allows me to achieve a long lasting and flawless nude lip! Since its release I have tried other nude lip colors but I continue to go back to this.
Like many I first noticed this fragrance at the Mac counter and it caught my attention but I waited a few days before actually deciding to buy it. It does have that fresh and clean smell to it, however it smells similar to the Nautica cologne that my boyfriend wears so to me this perfume seems somewhat masculine. I only purchased this a few days ago so I will update my review if my feelings about this one change!
This is a scent that I always come back to, and it's the only Ralph Lauren scent that I actually like. This prefume does have a lot of notes, and i'm not sure what it is I think i'm smelling, but it works for me. It's a warm and cozy scent that I wear the most in the winter time. For me, this perfume lasts all day on me but it isn't too overpowering as long as I don't spray too much on. Other's commented that they have been unable to find this in stores, but I've recently seen it in my local Ulta Store.
BB Cream -Estee Lauder - Daywear BB Anti-Oxidant Beauty Benefit Creme SPF 35
Shelbs7455 9/29/2012 10:03:00 AM
This is the first BB cream I have ever used, so I have nothing to compare this too. I've read countless reviews about other BB creams leaving your skin oily, so after doing some research I decided to go with this one. In the morning I wash my face with clinique's 3-step acne system, then I put this BB cream on after and apply some of my bare minerals foundation over it. This BB cream didn't make my face look/feel oily at all, and I think it actually controlled some of the excess surface oil on my face throughout the day. What I liked most about this was how moisturized my face felt all day. I didn't think this cream was too heavy, and my makeup still went on fine after putting this on. The only reason why I did not give this a 5 for an overall rating was because it has a slightly strong sunscreen smell to it, while it claims to have a cucumber scent- which you can somewhat smell, I think it has more of sunscreen scent.
Treatments -Estee Lauder - Idealist Even Skintone Illuminator

I bought this product because I was concerned with the fact that I had uneven skintone, a couple of very noticable acne scars and because of my large pores. I have combination skin, but I often get random breakouts on my face as well. I started using this product about a year and a half ago and it has been the best thing i've ever done for my face. Prior to using this, I tried the Clinique, Philosophy and Lancome products to even my skintone, but none of them worked like this. After about a week of using this, my skin was much softer and felt more moisturized. After a little over a month, I stopped breaking out and my large acne mark on my cheek faded a great deal. I've also noticed my pores getting smaller and my skinntone is much more even. While it is costly, it has been the only thing that has worked for me, and only a small amount of it is needed. Over a year later, it is as though I have a new set of skin on my face!
