Fragrances -Victoria's Secret - Sexy Little Things perfume

This smells like Ralph Lauren Ralph to me. Maybe one slight difference, and perhaps a little lighter, but still alot like Ralph. Too much like Ralph for me to justify the purchase again, since I do already have Ralph.
Lipstick -Lise Watier - Rouge Gourmand- Snowflake (Holiday LE)
missamerica32 12/12/2007 10:51:00 PM
This is one of my very favorite lipsticks! I love the snowflakes, first of all! It's sooo cute! The color looks sort of strange, but still pretty in the tube, but on it is GORGEOUS! It would easily look good on anyone, I believe. I have two tubes of it now, b/c I wanted to make sure I had a back up when I used up my first tube. :o)
By far the best hairspray EVER! I have thick hair that is quite weighty & unruly most of the time. :o) With this hairspray I am able to do things with my hair I never thought possible! I've tried some of the most highly recommended hairspray's like Bed Head, etc... this one is the BEST! Well worth the price & the bottle is absolutely enormous! Perfect for girls who are trying for side swept bangs & their hair isn't cooperating! I also want to mention that I work outside all day 5 days a week & I can spray my hair back out of my face & it STAYS ALL DAY! I mean in unnatural shapes too! It doesn't budge! I live in the hot humidity of the south too & it's been averaging 90-95 degrees F here lately & the hair stays put! Woo hoo! I can't say that about any other hairspray I've ever tried! This doesn't leave my hair hard or crunchy either! The best stuff EVER! I'll re-buy this forever! This is truly my only HG hair product! I can't say enough good things about this wonderful product!
I highly recommend this product! This is the best intense hydrating treatment I've ever used! It doesn't weigh your hair down, but leaves it soft, silky, & smooth. I really enjoy this stuff, but keep in mind it isn't for daily use. Use it maybe once or twice a week only!
Conditioner -Joico - K-Pak Reconstruct Daily Conditioner
missamerica32 5/24/2007 5:00:00 PM
A fabulous conditioner that doesn't weigh down your hair. I do go through this faster than I do the shampoo though, b/c I need more of this, but still a fantastic product. I would recommend any KPAK product to anyone with dry/damaged hair.
Shampoo -Joico - K-Pak Reconstruct Shampoo for Dry or Damaged Hair
missamerica32 5/24/2007 4:55:00 PM
This shampoo paired with the conditioner is fabulous, but like some other Joico products, you must use it for a week or so to appreciate it. I don't recommend daily washing, just use every other day...you should not wash your hair daily anyway as it is too drying & if your hair is damaged...the overwashing isn't helping you! Anyway, if at first you don't love it, keep using it b/c I promise the results will be great after continuous use. I almost gave up on it, but after about the 5th shampoo or so, I realized it really was doing a fantastic job of moisturizing & helping to make my hair more healthy!
Treatments -Joico - k-pak deep penetrating reconstructor
missamerica32 5/24/2007 4:44:00 PM
Really good stuff! The smell is a sort of banana scent, so I do like that too! This stuff takes a bit of time to be appreciated, in my opinion. I used it about once a week for about 3-4 weeks before I began to realize that this stuff was doing a great job for my hair! So don't give up on it after 1 use! I am out now, but will repurchase soon.
I've searched & searched for a pomade this great & thank goodness I finally found my HG pomade! It's freakin' fantastic! Worth it's weight in gold! I have bangs, & I used a bit of this on them every day nearly for that a piecy yet put together look. It adds great shine & the hold is fabulous as well! Sometimes I rustle it through my hair at the roots to add some volume & then use a bit throughout my hair for some added definition & such. I just love it to death & a little goes a VERY long way! It's just the most fabulous pomade ever! It's not goopy at all...it's like a hard balm consistency, so you just wipe your finger tips over the top & play away! It's alot of fun to use & really helps to bring out my new highlights also! It adds a great shine too! I just can't express how truly pleased I am with this fantastic product! Another winner for Joico! Woo-hoo!
I've searched & searched for a good hairspray that actually worked & my BFF recommended this one to me as her HG. So...I gave it a try & I would have to agree that it is the best I've tried so far! I will more than likely try some other brand when I run out of this, just out of curiosity. The can is lasting me forever though! It doesn't leave my hair super crunchy, so that's a major plus & it does hold well unlike other sprays I've tried. I'm just not completely thrilled with the hold to be honest. I do need a little bit more hold for my super thick & heavy hair, but this isn't by any means bad. It's pricey, but worth it. UPDATE: I've discovered the best & it's Kenra Volumizing Spray! Thanks to reviews on THIS hairspray I saw others here saying this was second best to Kenra...I'll have to agree! However Kenra is FAR superior to this! So, if you're thinking of buying this...pass on it & get a bottle of Kenra volumizing spray instead! ;o) You'll be so happy you did!
So far this is my fave toothpaste. Not the best for sensitivity, but not bad either. I do like the taste f the mint flavor & my teeth really feel clean afterward. I prefer this over all the other toothpaste out there.
I am shocked at all the bad reviews! I LOVE this! It's not a typical Chanel scent, I agree. I am not normally a fan of Chanel scents. They all seem to old ladyish for me, but this one is so different! It's a clean white floral with a sweet citrus note to it & slightly powdery dry down. It is long lasting, and it does go on strong, but the dry down is fabulous. I love how this scent evolves as it is on. It sprays on lovely, gets more lovely after a few minutes, then after about 1 hour is a new lovely scent, then after about 4-5 hours is a yet another new lovely scent. I just love it & it's on my wishlist for sure! It suits me well.
I prefer the original Instant Vacation to this one. It does dry down to being very similar to the original, but the gardenia in it was too overpowering for my taste. Seems like something that would be more suited for a different age group. I don't know what I was expecting from this, but I just didn't expect the gardenia to be so overpowering. I expected it to be a bit more subtle & compliment the original better...well, I will give this a few more tries...maybe it will grow on me, if so I'll change my review. :o)
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Coconut Hut - Surf Beach Baby Perfume
missamerica32 5/11/2007 12:18:00 PM
All I can say is at first spray I though, blech...but let this dry down. It's a bit overwhelming at first, but in a short time the dry down will emerge & this is yet another fantastic winner for The Coconut Hut! When I sniff it, I can literally picture the ocean. As with all of Lena's ocean & sea type scents, it's all of the good scents of the ocean & none of the bad, obviously! :o) This one almost has a powdery note to it. It's very fresh and clean & a little fruity, but not overpowering. I'm just thrilled with my purchase! I'll repurchase this for sure!
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Coconut Hut - Emerald Sea Beach Baby Perfume
missamerica32 5/11/2007 12:13:00 PM
This one is great! I was a little thrown off by the description, but I took the plunge anyway & gave it a try! I wanted fresh ocean type scents & this one is a good one. I don't really smell much ocean in it, but it's definately fresh! I actually bought this thinking it may be a winner for my DH, b/c it was listed in the unisex scents...I do not think my DH would wear this. It's too feminine for any man, IMO. The dry down has alot of fresh floral in it. It's just a really nice fresh floral. It reminds me of something, but I can't quite put my finger on it. I would repurchase if I ever ran out.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Coconut Hut - Blue Lagoon Beach Baby Perfume
missamerica32 5/11/2007 12:07:00 PM
Oh this is perfect! If you are in search of a scent that smells like the ocean, this is is! I smell the salty air & the sweetness of the lovely fruits growing nearby! I cannot stop smelling my arm! I am SOOOO glad I took a plunge & scooped this amazing fragrance up! I won't regret it! I would repurchase this in a heartbeat! It's so clean & fresh! Just my style! I'm in love with this scent! Way to go Lena! Yet another stunning winner from Coconut Hut!
