When I first smelled this perfume, I immediately thought it smelled familiar, but I couldn't figure out what it was that it smelled like! But then after I thought about it long and hard I realized it smells almost exactly like Forever Sunshine from Bath and Body Works! Well, to me anyway. I liked it because Forever Sunshine is one of my favorite scents and since it smells similar, I immediately liked it. To me, it smells like a mixture of vanilla and citrus. Kind of a common perfume smell though, in my opinion. Nothing too unique about it. And it's pretty strong. I feel like after a while it also starts to smell sickeningly sweet, so I only spray a little at a time. I've never smelled Someday so I can't compare them, but this one is a keeper. Not something I could wear everyday though, but once in a while.
I like this mascara because it does give a lot of volume and makes my eyelashes look a lot longer than they actually are, but it does seem to clump for me. And it seems to go on fairly thick. But it's pretty waterproof and does the job. So I would suggest it.
So first of all, this product came in a set of the cleanser, toner pads, lotion and this scrub. I bought it because a dermatologist recommended it and said it would help to cure my acne. Well, it did. Kind of. I still have acne so am I little disappointed that I spent $150 on this, which didn't give me the results I wanted. For that much money, I want it to work. Anyway, I did want to mention that this exfoliating scrub was the best scrub I've ever used and would probably go back just to buy it. But it is really expensive on it's own. After the first use, my skin literally felt sooooo soft and it felt like it was really clean. It really gets into your pores because the granules are even finer than sand. It smells pretty good too, like something from the sea. I only used it twice a week since it would probably make my skin peel had I used it more. Plus it only says to use it twice a week. It kind of made my skin red afterwards, but that was probably because I scrubbed really hard in the hopes that it would scrape off my acne or something. The ONLY complaint I have with this product is that it costs a lot and runs out too fast. But all in all I would highly suggest this if you're looking for a nice face scrub!
I LOVE this product line! I'm also surprised that there are negative comments because to me this is one of the best hair products I've tried so far. After using the moisture repair shampoo and conditioner I use some of the oil while my hair is still wet and it literally makes my hair feel like silk. Plus I love the smell. The only downside is that the shampoo doesn't lather that well (like someone else said) which I don't like because I feel like I have to use a lot. Also, it's super expensive and you don't really get all that much. But other than that I would highly suggest it if you love the feeling of your hair when you leave the salon because with this, you can get that.

I have very sweaty palms, and this stuff is really good for controlling it. I put it all over my palms at night (not every day, just when I feel like they're really sweaty) and then wash it off in the morning. But I have to warn you, they will completely dry out your hands (or wherever you put it) to where they're almost cracking. Then you'll feel like you need to moisturize (which kind of defeats the purpose). But once you wash it off, there is almost no sweat. I can go for a few days without sweaty palms after that. So it works really well, but don't put it on everyday because that would be overkill. And also, if you have any cuts, it will burn them.

I love love love love this scent! It's my favorite one at BBW! It smells like cookies. I like the smell of vanilla so pretty much anything with vanilla in it, I like. It's a warm, cozy scent that I guess would be considered a "winter scent" but I don't really go by that and just use it all year round. I have the shower gel, lotion and body spray. It's not too strong either, so you could layer them without it being overwhelming.

I didn't like this one at all on me. I just got a couple of the trial sizes when this first came out and it smelled nice in the bottle but when I put it on it was way too strong and I couldn't stand it so I tried to wash it off. First you smell the coconut, which is nice, but then it starts to smell almost floral and I don't like floral scents so this was not for me.
I LOVE THIS, IT SMELLS AMAZING! It smells so good you could eat it! It smells like vanilla butter cream, just like sweet vanilla icing and it almost has that texture too. It does smell pretty sweet though, so if you don't like that it probably wouldn't be good for you. And a couple times it made my skin itchy, but that's because I have sensitive skin. I still use it anyway.
This is the best makeup remover! I've tried a lot of other ones and NONE of them have worked as good as this one. This ones thicker than most so it's really like a moisturizing cream which works really well to get off waterproof mascara and such. And it's cheap. I just bought 6 more bottles of it to stay stocked up!
This so far has been one of my favorite eyeliners, maybe because it was my first eyeliner or something, I don't know. But it works really well and the colors are nice. I had the midnight blue I think it was and it looked really nice. Also, it is really waterproof, I even had a hard time getting it off with eye makeup remover. It's also one of those self sharpening ones so that was nice.
