I am utterly thrilled that this product exists! I originally used Organix Coconut conditioner a few months ago but it was useless on my highlighted highlighted hair so i gave it away. Today i was in RiteAid and was looking around for a product that smelled just like the conditioner and low and behold i almost fell over when i saw that this exists! The smell is DIVINE!! Its like sweet honeyed coconut with some toasted almonds thrown in and a touch of vanilla. OMG! If i were making a dessert, this is what i'd like to make. Very moisturizing also. Only downside is that the top leaks ever so slightly. If you're looking for coconut scent, this is it!
In the bottle it smells absolutely divine! And i was about to buy it, but thought i'd walk around a little first and see how it works in my wrist. However, within an hour the scent was gone! I had liberally sprayed my wrists and ran some errands before shoving my wrist under my colleagues nose, and he said he smelled barely anything (and this is the guy whose sense of smell is really good and who we have smell the milk to see if its bad!) So, divine in the bottle, shortlasting on the body.

Firstly, I'm not a teenager, nor a Britney Spears fan. I also didn't think in a million years i would be wearing a perfume with Britney Spears name on it! I admit it, i was a bit of a snob! But the perfume itself is divine! Its sweet, flowery and just beautiful. I usually use more citrus fragrances such as Aqua di Goia, D&G Light Blue etc, but recently wanted something different. If you want pretty, feminine, sweet, and kinda like candy, this is it!
I've used these for year and have had family ship them from England but am so glad that they're available in the US - Really get your face clean - don't sting eyes - don't dry out skin - the adhesive opening stays shut!! (other ones i've used have dried out coz they won't stay shut - thick - large enough to get off whole face of makeup I love these so much i have multiple packs; one for my apt, one for the bf, one for travel etc.

Love this product! Got in in Mellow Melon and its just the prettiest color every! It goes on smooth and buttery, is very moisturizing and the color has a really strong pigment so you can really see it on your skin. Its like a medium light baby doll pink with a moisturized looking glow, but no gloss. So neither shine nor dull. It was only $3 i think - how can you go wrong!
This is the prettiest shadow ever! Its super silky with a lovely gold pink color. Its super soft and you get a huge color payoff with an intense even color. It blends exeptionally well so youbdont get lines. For daytime i apply to eyelids especially to lashline, add a thin line of dark brown liquid liner, curl the lashes and add black mascara. I buffed it out with a fluffy brush. So prrtty, natural and daytime appropriate.
First i would like to point out that i am in my late thirties, blonde hair, blue eyed with a fair (but not necessarily alabaster skin) - i'd say Kate Hudson/Gweneth Paltrow. So, at the Mac counter, this eyeshadow looked divine!! On my finger there was a high pigmented, wonderously silky frosted pale pink with a hint of champagne - lovely. However, when i got it home and tried in on my bar lid, it barely shows. You don't see any of the pink, but rather a faint pale champagne sheen that looks slightly like shine but is devoid of pigment. No matter how much product i used, i couldn't get any color whatsoever plus is kind of make my eyelids look unsmooth and scaley. Keep in mind that its winter so i'm pale, so it might look better for me in summer and would definately show up on a darker complexion. For reference, I absolutely ADORE Jest and Phloof which show up beautifully on my eye lids, but Naked Lunch is invisible on my skin. Will not buy again. Will try again in summer but will likely give it away.
