This is a nice warm vanilla and spicy floral scent. It has orange blossom, vanilla, anise seed, some amber and sandalwood. Not a bad scent, but doens't last long. To me it smells EXACTLY like Jean Paul Gautier "classique" perfume. The pink bottle in the shape of a bustier. This is not a bad scent, but for the lasting power, price and longevity, you should buy "Le Classique" by Jean Paul instead.
Nasty, coffee, cinnamon and chocolate, only buy if you want to smell like a Cinnabon
Treatments -The Body Shop - Moisture White Brightening Serum

this product was "ok" I mean it does brighten intially but then later on in the day I would get sweaty, oily and by the evening I wouldn't notice too much "brightness" in my skin AND I USE AN SPF 50 on my face. Its ok, but I dont think it does anything drastic for whitening. Its not bad, but I think the skin boost is better because its more potent in vitamin C which will brighten and make you look more radiant.

It was kind of useless, and overdrying, dont buy this toner. its not worth it. You are better off goin to the drug store. I think it was a cop out so they could make more money by making it a "3 step program" like most other brands use: cleanser, toner and serum

Shave Products -Nivea - Sensitive Gel Shaving Cream

This is the best shaving cream around and I have used them all, goes on easy and smooth, doesnt clog the razor, smells fresh and is a fraction of more expensive creams
Im sorry but this cream sucks. Its incredibly thick and creamy..reminds of noxseema , remember that stuff in the eighties?? It doesnt foam and it clogs the razor like mad. I read insytle or some hing that nivae shave cream was the clear winner in shave cream and for 3 bucks nivae sensitive skin shaving cream is the best. My friends said I would love Kiehls but its horrible, Its like trying to shave your legs with frosting from a cake

I know that its not for brightening, but it evened out my skin tone and made me feel moisturized and not too greasy, check it out
Cleansers -Jo Malone - Eucalyptus & Mint Frothing Cleansing Cream

I have combo to oily skin and this is great, I looooooove the scent and it left me feeling squeaky clean! Some may find it to be drying and I did feel a **LITTLE TIGHT*** and dry around my cheeks after I use it but not TOO DRY. Its just right. I love this scent and after I wash it I can put on my daily moisturizer. Its worth every penny. It costs 35 bucks and you only need a nickel size amount so its lasted me over 5 months. I highly recommend this!

Nasty, This smells like walking into and Indian or Pakistani spice shop or an Indian temple, it smells like incense and cigarette smoke. I like many bonds but not this one!
I have tried many shave creams: jack black beard lube, kiehls, aramis lab series adn this takes the cake as the BEST! it starts off thick and dense, but once you put it on your skin and add some water it lathers up an avalanche of foam. Slides easily, UNLIKE KIEHLS IT WONT CLOG THE RAZOR, Rinses out of the blade easily. Highly recommended
If you like a great womans scent, look no further. Reminds of Creeds Spring flowers. a Beautiful scent
This is a dead ringer for Paco Rabanne for men ,Not a bad scent, but PR is just as good? and the gal at store said everyone says it smells like PR. Think about it, ask yourself : Why should I buy this one?
This is a dead ringer for Bulgari pour Femme. This smells nice and lovely, especially for a woman in the 35 + age group. However, Bulgari femme is cheaper, more floral and for the money I think its better. Everyone asked me if I was wearing Bulgari Pour Femme. If they can't tell the difference, why should you?
