One of the few florals I absolutely adore.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lipgloss - Shine City

I love this lipgloss. I've gone through several tubes and hopefully, will be able to find it for a long time to come. Colorless, but gorgeous sheen and sparkle. I like it better than any MAC lipglass.
I really love Stila eyeshadows. Diamond Lily has been one of my HG e/s for some time, but I now have a new love with Shore. Great color. I wear it all the time.
Gels/Soaps -Bath and Body Works - Temptations Simply Divine Cherry Pie

A scrumptious, wearable cherry scent. I love this one...and I rarely love anything from BBW.
I bought this for my dh, but he thought it smelled great but was too sweet. I spritzed it on and voila! We both loved it -- on me! :) Complex and unisex, sweet but not cloying, nice lasting power and very reasonable price point. I'll enjoy this a lot in cooler weather.
This is my favorite cleanser. I've been using it for awhile and my skin has never looked or felt better! Very easy to use, rinses clean, not drying. Excellent product.
Love this scrub! This has been my HG facial scrub for awhile now. It smells fresh and citrusy and works wonders on my skin. A little goes a long way, and scrub gently (the salt can be rough if you are work it in too aggressively)...but you will love the results!
Glorious, sexy, summer fragrance. This reminds me of CSP Vanille Banane...but it has much better staying power, and a more complex background of notes -- vanilla, a tiny hint of coconut and lovely tropical flowers. This is an absolute winner. I'm on my first bottle and I've already stashed a 2nd bottle for summer.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Vanilla Spice Body Butter

Great scent, and I love the body butters at The Body shop. Vanilla Spice is a warm, cozy scent. Perfect for the holidays and cool, crisp nights. My skin just soaks in the butter formula. I stock up on this one to last me through the winter.
Lipstick -Christian Dior - Addict Lipstick in Rose Scenario

I just ran out of my second tube of this lipstick and as I was headed to Sephora.com to buy a 3rd, I realized I should come here and right a review. This is the perfect nude lipstick shade for me. I didn't think I would EVER find a nude lippie that would work, but this has been my h/g. I love it with simple blush and smokey eyes. Personally, I find the tube/packaging completely over the top. I don't mind the price tag, and would far prefer a simple black case...but nevermind. The texture and color are such perfection, I wouldn't care if they put it in a case that lit up when it opened. :)
Candles -Yankee Candles - Willow Breeze Housewarmer

Great scent! I wish this wasn't LE. Very soft floral w/sandalwood notes. Perfect for spring. Great bedroom/bath candle. And the throw is excellent. YC is hit or miss for me, but this is a winner!
I love this creme. It moisturizes my skin beautifully....melts in and absorbs quickly. The scent is heavenly.
I'm often wary of YC candles. Some have great throw, others none. And so many of their scents seem to be reinventions of the same things, leaving you with the feeling, "Didn't I buy this candle before?" I was afraid this would be the case Lemon Lavender. I was very, very pleasantly surprised! This is such a lovely fresh, springtime scent. The throw is medium to strong and I liked it enough to buy the 22oz size. This is a great scent for the kitchen as well as the rest of the home. Definitely give Lemon Lavender a try!
I'm surprised by the number of negative reviews for this fragrance. This isn't one of the sexist or most interesting perfumes in my collection, but it's certainly one I reach for on hot summer days. It's simple and clean and fresh -- light tart lemon w/ just a hint of sweetness. It isn't heavy and very wearable. I've received several compliments while wearing Lemon Sugar. As always, it's an issue of body chemistry, but for me, this is a great summer staple.
Bath Treatments -Carol's Daughter - Bath Salts - Groove
browneyedbecky 3/14/2006 10:28:00 PM
This is a *gorgeous* scent...fruity but not in a baby girl way. This is all "woman" because there is a base of lovely musk. Here are the notes: Groove is a blend of peach, pineapple, musk, sandalwood, and vanilla. It smells nice in the jar, but when it hits the water the fragrance really blooms and lingers on the skin long after you've emerged from your bath. I adore using this scent in same way I love the "Sex Bomb" bath ballistic from Lush. It's summery, luscious and sexy all in one. Another amazing offering from Carol's Daughter.
