I guess I didn't really notice that it was 'strongly' scented. But as far as the exfoliation (which is what I purchased it for) I think it's excellent! I had used a TCA peel in the past and needed something to help speed up the exfoliation process. My usual microdermabraision scrub didn't do anything (along with the clarisonic) so I picked this up on a whim..and it worked far better than I could have anticipated! I'm currently 5 months pg, and have used this on my belly as well followed up with shea butter and coocnut oil - exfoliates wonderfully - skin is radiant and smooth. Love it.
My T3 went out....and in a pinch I picked this dryer up. I like it BETTER than the T3....and it was 1/3 the price. I would suggest trying this dryer before spending lots of $.

Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Dream Angels Heavenly

Love this fragrance! Just a beautiful soft, powdery, fresh..not *too* fresh..fragrance. My only gripe is that I can layer and layer and it doesn't seem to last as long as divine. But, maybe that's what make it so appealing...not any heavy lingering fumes.
I just purchased this product recently and am pretty impressed with it so far. The main reason I bought this mascara was because of it's lash conditioning ingredients. A *few* years back Maybelline had a Great Lash mascara ( I hate the original) that contained the same lash conditioning ingredients.... that I loved!!!! Then...it was discontiued. I hope this does as well for my lashes as the other version of Great Lash did. So far, so good.
Bronzers -Bare Escentuals - Faux Tan all-over face color

Love this product!! Beautiful...closest possible thing to a natural tan. No orange at all! I really wish I would have purchased this a long time ago instead of wasting money on trying to find a cheaper "drugstore" bronzer that has no staying power!! The price is not bad at all. It will last for at least 6 months if not more...as does all the bare escentuals products. I've thrown out all my other makeup and only have bare escentuals now for everything! Couldn't be happier with the purchase.
Lip Treatments -Fusion Beauty - LipFusion Lip Plumping Gloss

Love this stuff. Although, I feel I use it too sparingly, because for a gloss, it's a tad spendy. But ~ you won't find anything better. Yes, it definately plumps your lips (for an hour or so..)and it keeps lips in great condition. Does it have long term effects? I doubt it. I am on my second tube, but have not consistently used it twice a day. If a person has to do that, than it's not long term effects, it's just continuous use of the product. When it's gone, I do miss it, and go out and repurchase.
Pure crap. Unless you prefer to spend money on gooey, clumpy, spider looking lashes. My tube went straight back to Sephora.
Oh...this stuff turned my hair fiery orange. Followed the directions exactly, have colored and highlighted my own hair for years without any outcome like this. I have medium brown hair, and my hair has never been difficult to lift color (and previously never had the ugly orange effect as I did with this...yikes!). Definately will not repurchase.
Treatments (Eye) -Neutrogena - Radiance Boost Eye Cream

I agree....the cream seriously does stink. I thought it may have just been a bad tube I had bought until I read these reviews. I threw mine out ~ it didn't seem to have any positive effect. :(
Conditioner -Frederic Fekkai - Glossing Conditioner

I used this conditioner along with the glossing shampoo & creme. I guess I thought just based on the price of this stuff, I was going to end up with shiny and silky hair. It was just average for me. My hair was soft ~ nothing spectacular, and could not hold a style. I have naturally curly hair, and blow dry it straight, etc. Had high expectations for such a little bottle of gold, but have had better results with even drugstore brands.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals in 1.2, fairly light
kkirk 1/20/2005 1:28:00 PM
This is a great foundation. Even though it is a powder, it gives wonderful coverage and looks natural (and it lasts!). I haven't had any problems with application at all, I feel that if you have applied powder with a brush, you can easily do this ~ it's really quite effortless and takes less time than liquid foundation. I haven't had one break out with this product. I do have to use the mineral veil with this, or I am too shiny!
When I first smelled Romance, I had to have it! But...it is a fragrance that has been sitting on my shelf for about two years ~ used maybe 3 or 4 times. Now that it's winter I might spritz some on here and there. Not a bad scent at all, it just seems to be such a heavy 'headache inducing' scent for me. Will not purchase again, since this bottle will last me forever!
