I just got this beautiful fragrance yesterday and I can already tell it will be one of my favorites! I was a little worried at first, because when I initially sprayed it, I got a blast of crisp, green grass. I'm not a fan of "green" scents and grass was certainly not what I was looking for. After a few minutes though, the green faded and a lovely honeysuckle emerged. A little while later, a bit of a sweet tea note joined the honeysuckle with just a hint of the initial green to keep it from getting too sweet. The final drydown is a lovely, soft honeysuckle tea scent. Very fresh and just gorgeous!
I think of Spring Flower when I think of a fragrance that would be thought of as "pretty." I do feel pretty when I wear this. It is very flowery when first applied, but as it dries down, the sweet fruitiness emerges. It's a sharper floral than others I wear and very reminiscent of spring. The bottle is a very girly bright pink with a ribbon.

This is a lovely white floral fragrance. I can't pick out any of the individual notes, but the composition is very feminine with a touch of elegance. Usually I don't like white florals, but this one is so beautiful and not too heady a scent. It's very strong though, one little dab transferred between my wrists and my neck is enough to last me all day.

Beautiful bottle! Such a pretty blue with a little quirky vine-like pattern around the edges. Lovely fragrance, it's mostly honeysuckle with a tea-like note and a touch of verbena to brighten. It lasts all day on me, too. One of my favorites!
This is my HG fragrance! It's such a lovely, feminine, sweet floral. The most prominent notes on me are sweet pea and apricot with a touch of lily of the valley. Very spring-like. I will definitely repurchase again and again!
This is my current HG conditioner. It moisturizes my dry hair without weighing it down. It has a nice light coconut scent. Wonderful product!

I love this finishing cream! It is lightweight, leaves my hair shiny and smooth, and smells great! What more can I ask for? I just purchased my second bottle.
Foundations -Aromaleigh - Glissade mineral foundation powder [DISCONTINUED]

I love this new formula! I was using the original PP and PC (I blended it 50/50) among other mineral lines and I love the texture and finish of Glissade. It goes on very smoothly, has excellent coverage, and does not break me out at all. Glissade has become one of my new staples. *update* I've found other mineral lines with even better texture and finish (Pure Luxe is my HG, followed by ASC and BFM), so Glissade has been bumped down the list a bit.
Treatments -Aromaleigh - Microdermabrasion Creme [DISCONTINUED]

I use this creme with my fingers (I don't have the tool). This creme is fantastic for buffing away all the dead skin cells and revealing the softness beneath. I usually cleanse first, then without rinsing, apply a small amount of the microdermabrasion creme and very lightly massage my skin in small circles (the cleanser helps to buffer the skin a bit). Rinse and voila! Soft, smooth skin! I highly recommend this product.
Great scrub, I love the blend of textures and the amount of oil is great! This scent smells like straight coconut to me. I was actually hoping for a sweeter, more tropical coconut, maybe with a hint of vanilla or something, but even on it's own, it's very nice. I would repurchase.
This is a great etailer conditioner! I've tried many, but they were either not nearly moisturizing enough (I have dry, color-treated hair) or left a coating on my hair. This conditioner is lightweight, so it does not leave a residue on your hair, yet it still effectively conditions and detangles. Don't be fooled, it feels like it disappears into your hair when you apply it, but it's working. My hair was soft, shiny and bouncy afterward! And my hair smelled great (I have it in Mango Tea). Not my HG conditioner, but very nice!
Nice, no frills, gentle shampoo. It leaves my hair feeling clean, but not stripped at all, and I was told that it is safe for color-treated hair. I have this in my beloved Mango Tea scent.
Scrubs -Blue Funk - Takes Two to Eat a Mango Sugar Scrub

I am in LOVE with this scent! It's a wonderfully fresh mango scent with a black tea background. The tea keeps the mango from being too sweet and adds a bit of sophistication. It's a really really wonderful scent! The scrub itself is great, it has both large and small sugar granules for a nice scrubby, but not scratchy effect. It's an oilier scrub, but it doesn't leave me feeling slimy, just extremely soft and moisturized. I usually don't need lotion or cream afterwards. I highly recommend this scrub!

Blue Funk's bath bombs are great! So moisturizing and they really fizz in the tub! I like the orange creamsicle scent, but I could barely smell mine. I wish the scent was stronger. Other than that, it's fabulous!
This is a great lightweight lotion, perfect for summer! Even though it is light, it still moisturizes well and is not greasy in the least. I have this in a custom scent of Grapefruit Orange, smells wonderful!
