Very disappointed this is discontinued. I had SIX people yesterday tell me how amazing I smelled. Nothing else really smells like this. It's very dry, but rich. I always feel a bit like a bad ass when I wear this. Another excellent scent BBW discontinued only to replace it with some fruity, cheap scent. What a disappointment!
Gross and boring. I don't get the hype.
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Moisture Therapy Restorative Rescue Balm

This is fantastic. I have terrible eczema on my hands, and while it doesn't fix it, it definitely helps. It is a little sticky, but this does not last long. I have used all different kinds of hand creams, and this is one of the best! (but only for very dry skin)
This is a beautiful, classic scent. I like the old-fashioned quality it has (I tend to like those scents others think are for "old ladies"). This is powdery, but not overtly. A little spicy, but clean. It reminds me a lot of Avon's Soft Musk, which is my absolute favorite. I have never had the chance to experience the scent before Dana bought it, but I think the version out now is very nice. A great everyday scent!
I'm shocked by the bad reviews. I have been trying to get my hair medium auburn for a month now (10 dye jobs including a trip to the salon) and nothing has worked. All the dyes have turned into a muddy brown color after one wash (and I use Wen). I finally used Feria in the brightest red I could find. This made my hair RED. In fact, it was bright pink in some spots. I tried to tone it down by washing with original dawn (this usually works - my hairdresser suggested it). However my hair still looked a little too pink for my taste. I picked up medium reddish brown, in spite of the bad reviews here, because I liked that it only took 10 min and the color looked nice. I am very impressed! My hair is so silky! It was very damaged before from bleaching so I was not expecting these results. Most colors claim that they leave your hair in better condition, but few deliver. This one definitely did. The color was quite a bit darker than the picture, but I expect some fading, so it's ok. I will repurchase, but will choose a lighter color.
Amazing. I am almost speechless. I am compulsive with dying/bleaching my hair and I had thought it was destroyed beyond hope. After using this my hair is silky and soft and doesn't have that sticky feeling it usually has when it is wet. It also dries SO much faster. I recommend this for anyone with damaged hair. Don't even think about it, just go out and buy this stuff. You won't regret it!
This is a basic vanilla fragrance. It's nice, but not worth the price. You can find nicer vanillas for a better price. Plus, the initial blast is very chemically and gives me a headache. I was expecting more from this.
I haven't smelled Youth Dew in a long time so I really cannot compare this to the original, however, I find Amber Nude to be really nice. I like the top and base notes, but I don't care for the middle notes. At first it does have a very distinct cola note, almost like Tabu. After a few minutes it gets a very chemically smell on me, which fortunately doesn't last long. I'm left with a great woody, amber, tobacco type smell that I love. I do get the unlit cigarette that someone else mentioned, but I kind of like it.
This is very musky, but if you like musk scents you will probably like this. It smells just like Very Sexy from Victoria's Secret to me, but with more vanilla. I like it. It is definitely unique. I actually do get the "wet dog" thing someone else mentioned, but I still think it's nice.
This is a very sharp oriental. I'm not good at detecting specific notes, but this is definitely spicy and a little citrusy. It's sexy, but not in a warm "come over here and cuddle up" kind of way. I use to wear it whenever I went out at night, but it has taken a back seat to B&BW Sensual Amber and Black Amethyst. I still really like it, but now I prefer warmer scents. I think this one really is seasonless though, which makes it easy to reach for anytime of the year.
Halo is a very clean, soapy, just-out-of-the-shower scent. I don't get any flowers from this at all and it definitely is not sweet. It's OK. It's what I wear when I don't want to smell to perfumy (which is next to never). The bottle is pretty though. I think it's kind of expensive for a VS scent, however, they don't make it anymore.
This is an ok scent. I smell mostly tuberose, which I like, but burnt myself out on. It's quite light actually. Unoffensive and pretty, but nothing special.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Professional silkworks silk oil

I just had to write a review on this after seeing all the rav reviews for Moroccan oil. This has very similar ingredients including the Argan oil for a fraction of the price. I have never purchased it, but have found the Moroccan oil for around $40. Silk oil is $7.50 for 2 oz. at Walmart. My hair is crazy fried from repeatedly dying it. I put this on after I wash my hair and after drying my hair is silky and shiny. My mom uses it as well and loves it. If you like Moroccan oil, but don't want to plunk down the big bucks for it, check this out. As I said, I have never used the Moroccan oil before, but the ingredients are almost the same - it the silk oil contains the much loved Argan oil.
I don't get all the hype with this fragrance. It's very fruity and bright which is nice, but not terribly unique. It smells very juvenile to me. Doesn't every college girl wear this? Boring. I might like it as an air freshener...but on my skin, no.
This is VERY strong, but lasts a very short time. I'm not impressed. It's kind of woody and spicy, which I usually like, but for some reason, I'm not impressed. It gave me a headache.
