This product has a nice warm smell to it. It is probably the vanilla and sandalwood. It is not overpowering. I think it would be nice to wear out and not worry about knocking anyone out with my perfume. My husband also likes it as well. I think this is one that I will keep on my list of "must have" on hand.
This shower gel is a pretty deep blue color. It is minty, more of a peppermint sort of mint. It also has a herbal undertone which is the smell it dries down to after the shower. The scent does not stay for long. I do not really find the gel to be that tingly. For a super "brrr" tingly mint, I would recommend the following products by Bliss - "Shock Therapy" Body wash or for a scrub, "Super Minty Soap 'n Scrub". This shower gel would also be a good choice as a unisex shower gel.
I bought this concealer in medium, and it is almost a perfect match for my skintone. I have had good luck with this in covering up blemishes, dark circles, and as cover-up on my nose. I would purchase this again, as it does have good staying power. It also blends well, and I haven't had it cake up on me. The consistency is also nice and smooth.
This moisturizer evens out my skin tone really well (MMM). I find I must finish this with a powder or otherwise I end up with an oily mess on my forehead area by midday. I like this as it provides light coverage, and you get quite a bit for the price. I don't mind the fragrance either.
The smell of this product is menthol-like. It is also a bland pea green color. I like the concept of the clay based cleanser. It is soothing to the skin, and foams up rather well. I like to use it occasionally also as a shampoo, it rinses out well. I think it may be nice to use in the summer time, and after a workout. I will use up what I have, but I am not sure if I would purchase this again.

I won this product in a drawing at my local BeneFit counter. I was contemplating purchasing it. I think the price is a little steep. The packaging is a nice very pink tin. I like the shimmer and scent this product leaves on your skin. It isn't really moisturizing, although I am not sure that moisturizing is a goal of this product. It is a nice "pampering" treat for yourself though! The only thing is, the applicator and the consistency reminds me of car wax. Hmmmm.
I like the smell of this cream. It is also a pretty pink color! I do like BeneFit's packaging. This isn't the most moisturizing cream that I have used, but it leaves a nice scent.
At first I thought I really liked this product. When I put it on in the morning, it looked pretty natural. After a few hours a work and checking in the ladies' room mirror, I found that there was some unnatural, yellow creasing going on on my eyelids. So, now I am not too sure about using it.
This does a nice job of giving a "natural" glow. I am a MMM and although it doesn't really stand out, it gives a nice finish. The brush that comes with it is ok. I am not crazy about the cardboard packaging, but the powder does have a nice smell.
I love this scrub! It has the best of all worlds; great color, a pretty aqua, a nice fresh light smell (sort of citrus-y) nice consistency for a scrub and lathers up nicely. As with my other Philosophy bath products, I must use another container as the original 16 oz bottle is sort of unwieldy in the shower.

The smell is great. It is nice and clean, not too strong. It lathers up really well and does double duty as a shampoo. The bottle is not great for the shower, so I am frequently putting my shower gels in a different, more shower friendly container.
