Powder -Estee Lauder - Nutritious Vita-Mineral Loose Powder Makeup SPF 15

This product is part of the mineral makeup craze. A product could have one mineral, and the company claims it is a mineral product. This is wrong. The coverage is okay but as others pointed out, the container is messy (no avoiding this) and it wears off easily (doesn't wear long) and didn't do much for oil control.

I think that this would be more suited for a normal to dry type skin. If you are oily, it will slide off and/or make your skin more oily. I don't get the whole mineral makeup concept, I think it's a scam. A product could have one mineral and then the company claims it is "mineral" makeup. I think it's just a fad. The foundation didn't feel smooth when I tried it on my face.

I love night creams! Guerlain is really expensive, and this is no exception ($136 CDN). It has a nice texture that is not too rich but is still very moisturizing. I love the smell, and I wake up to really relaxed looking, radiant skin. Love!

This is an expensive hand/foot cream, but it works! It doesn't feel greasy but has helped my skin feel more soft.
This is a nice crisp, fresh scent with a bit of spice. It reminds me a bit of Chanel Allure Homme Sport or Dior Homme Sport. Not that original or as good as those mentioned.

This is a really great sexy scent from Lauder. It's harder to find but worth it once you do! It has all the notes I love in a spicy fragrance, oriental, whatever you call it. This is simply sublime! op Notes Ylang Absolute Italian Bergamot Geranium Oil Middle Notes Bulgarian Rose Absolute Cinnamon Ceylon Incense Base Notes Vanilla Bean Sandalwood Amber

I have a friend who is an RN and was raving about this hand cream. Think about it. He's constantly helping patients, washing his hands between each one. It would ruin your hands. He was raving about this hand cream because he says it's the best at lasting through many hand washes, and helping to keep the nails clean and strong, and the hands nice and soft. I decided to try it out. I wasn't expecting much, considering the low price point. However, I love this hand cream! It did help my nails stay healthy and my hands were soft. It's nice to find an inexpensive product that works!
I love this product! It's effective at removing makeup. It's not that much more expensive than say Olay wipes or another mass brand. And the SCENT is heavenly! Love it!
Look...it's another boring perfume by Burberry. So overpriced too! This is just another 'barely there' floral I have come to expect from Burberry, but with no personality whatsoever, or anything to make it unique. Why do they all smell the same???

This is a really great nudey pink that is slightly brown..it looks good on almost anyone. The formula is nice and creamy, somewhat long wearing. The case is truly classy!
Moisturizers -Guerlain - Super Aqua Night Recovery Balm

This is a nice night cream. Expensive, but nice. When you spend as much as you do on Guerlain, it better be good. And it is...but to me not worth it. However, I found it quite moisturizing, repairing, and calming. I'm sure I can find the same benefits (and have) in other night creams more affordable than this.
EXTREMELY SEXY and so good. This one still sells like hot cakes! It's a nice oriental with a slight floral. Most obvious note is vanilla, joined with sandalwood, coconut, and some floral ones I can't pick out. For an EDT it is surprisingly long lasting. This one you can tell by it's smell, and I love it. Very sensual and alluring.
I can't decide if I love this scent so much because it's so hard to find now, or because it is so brilliant. Both I think! It was launched in 2001 but the advertising featured skyscrapers and fighter planes, and with 9/11 it was deemed inappropriate so Dior pulled the ads, and the fragrance tanked. It is very fresh and a great everyday scent. I wish it was easier to find, I think in Europe it is readily available but not the in US/CAN. Top notes are peach, basil, citruses and pear; middle notes are rosemary, spices and cypress; base notes are musk and pear wood.
This is one of my HG colognes. It's an older, mature scent. Not any guy could wear it. It is elegant, spicy, citrusy, all in one. Very refined and one of a kind. It has some of my favorite notes: musk, lemon, vetiver, amber, sandalwood. Classy!
A nice classy men's fragrance. Very fresh and masculine at the same time. Top notes are ginger, bergamot and lemon; middle notes are spices, white pepper, basil and violet leaf; base notes are tonka bean, tahitian vetiver and cedar.
