I have used the gardenia, honeysuckle, and apricot rose. So far the apricot rose is my favorite fragrance, but I love them all. This is gentle, moisturizing, and smells heavenly in a soft, natural way. It doesn't leave any fragrance behind, at least on me. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. It is the only body wash that makes my skin noticably softer, yet it cleanses well too.
I got this for free because someone else got it and disliked it. It is a strong smell that lingers all day. It's not something I would use everyday, but when I am in an indulgent mood, it really delivers. I find that it is more concentrated than other body washes, so I use less of it. I use it on handwashables and it really imparts its fragrance to them. I don't typically like honey scented products but I love jasmine, and this smells pretty good. After reading other reviews I have to admit, I'm a little afraid that I smell like moth balls, at least to other people!
In general I love orange, peach, or coral lipstick and blush. It usually flatters my skintone. This particular formula just does not work for me. It is too gloppy and opaque, almost like it has white pigment under the orange-ness. I had the same problem with impassioned, which is also an amplified formula, so maybe its just not for me. So Chaud is also a super orange mac lipstick, but it looks great on me. I would recommend that one over Morange, unless you don't like the matte formula.
Lip Gloss -Clinique - Color Surge Impossibly Glossy in Azalea

this in one of the few glosses i can see myself using up. it is a sheer hot pink with a touch of shimmer. i really hate glosses that are tacky and perfumed. this is neither. the lasting power is not great, but i prefer to reapply rather than use a gunky, thick gloss. when it does wear off, it wears off evenly and does not bleed. it looks great alone to add some color to my lips, or over the top of lipstick to brighten it up a bit. it is really beautiful applied over a deep red that has been lightly blotted on. for reference, i have fair, olive skin, dark hair and hazel eyes.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Face Lotion with SPF 15

It's hard to tell people are using the same product by reading the widely varied reviews. I guess it just depends on the individual's skin, and so far this is working great for me. I have combination skin. In the winter it is tight and flaky, but still developes an oily layer on the surface. I have large pores and break out on occasion. I have only been using this for about one week, but I have already noticed a difference. My skin is less tight and flaky feeling. I use this lotion morning and night. I don't feel any tingling and have not noticed any irritation. My skin actually seems less irratated than before I used it. There is a perfumey smell that thankfully dissipates after about ten minutes. It has fully soaked in after five minutes of application. The lotions I have tried in the past are either too light and do nothing for me, or too heavy and tend to leave my skin feeling greasy. This was perfectly balanced, it left my skin feeling normal! I will certainly continue to use this product.
