I can't believe people are comparing this, my favourite fragrance, to Light Blue! That stuff smells like cat pee compared to this beauty. I always feel great in my skin when I have this on. The staying power isn't that great, but at least you'll know you won't sufficate anyone even right after spraying. My BF loves this one, and I have to admit, my raving review might be more than just a little affected by fond memories of wearing this when we started going out. But still, it's a light yet deep, somehow a very uplifting scent, great one all year round.

I can't help wondering if there's something wrong with my nose, but to me, this smells very similar to kate moss's kate. "Kate" is somewhat lighter, this one is maybe a little more stylish. Too expensive for such a generic scent.

Can't believe I haven't reviewed this earlier. I can't explain why, but this seems to work wonders for the skin around my eyes. Everytime I run out of this and use something else for a few days, I notice the difference. The skin seems to be less hydrated because some temporary lines appear. They fade after continuing the use of this gel. There probably could be a better/cheaper option for this one, but it's really hard to find an eye gel that actually is a gel instead of a runny emulsion.
I'm not actually sure whether I'd really purchase this again, because this is probably not gonna beat my long time favourite, Lumene cleansing gel. This cleanses well, although I don't wear heavy makeup. It's leaves a hardly noticeable film on the skin, haven't decided yet if it bothers me or not. Is a little drying now in the winter so I'm guessing I'll save this for summer, when the oiliness of my t-area knows no limits. Will probably work quite well then.
Lovely soft, rosy and dark scent without being overwhelming. I'm extremely sensitive to "heavy" scents. This probably can't be categorized as one, but it sure is a lot darker and deeper than the scents I usually wear. Not probably very unusual but for me this was a pleasent surprise as I haven't used scents launched by celebs before, and have sort of stigmatized them to be automatically cheap.
This one was a surprise. I think it's actually very different from the original Green Tea. Summery is indeed the best word to describe it. There is more fruit and some sweetness in the scent compared to the original, still remaining the same freshness. Not perhaps very original but not sickeningly sweet either. Would purchase this in a heartbeat over Escada's summer fragrances(which are IMHO copies of each other year after year).
A lovely pure, simple and fresh fragrance. It's not highly unique, but there's just something so different about it. It's sort of a watery scent with a twist. I use this one when I need a happy, light and not one of the most noticeable scents.
Got a bad headache after sampling this one. I'm guessing just too sweet to my liking, at least on my skin.
I took one lippie of for the unpleasent fact, that I live in a country where you never know about the weather, that's why I need a waterproof mascara, and this one just isn't like that. But this one has other great qualities. It's absolutely clump free, natural looking and eyes enhancing! But the best thing this has is the brush!! I love it! It's very dense, and I get my lashes in order with it. After using a tube of this mascara, I throw it away- except for the brush. I wash it, and then I'll be able to apply any mascara I want nicely, without clumps. I quess this won't work with thicker mascaras or if it doesn't fit the tube but for example with Kanebo 38, my fave, this works well. And when I wash the brush exact right after use, mascara comes of easily and it's left nice and clean for the next use.

Being a bit more expensive than the "original" version, I was suspicious to try this one out. Might I just add that for a product this good, I'd be willing to pay more, so the main reason for my doubts was the different texture. Well, anyways..I was intiminated to try this because of the fibres it has. I had had bad experiences with fibre-mascaras before, and was scared this might be as awfull. I have quite dense lashes, and if you combine them with a bad brush and too dry mascara with fibres in it, well, let's just say that lashes aren't going to be looking at all natural or beautiful. This one hasn't have those problems. The brush is ok, not great but does the job. The best brush I've seen is in Cliniques naturally glossy mascara, really dense and nice size. But I guess that would be too dense for this sort of mascara. Mascara itself isn't dry, it's actually quite moist in the beginning of the tube, just like the original one. Eventhough I've been going on and on about the "dangers of fibres", I consider this one is safe. It's not thick or clumpy, just easy-to-apply. Comes of as easily as the original, maybe not at well-lasting, but almost. Makes my lashes a bit longer than the non-separating and lenghtening but there's not a huge difference. I might stick with the original as it's easier to find on sale but I'm sure I'll repurchase this one too.
Great stuff! Can be used around the year even in the cold North, and it's washing power can be regulated by the temperature of the water you use to wash it off. With warm water it soaks away more oil, and with lukewarm it's more gentle. In my teens, I used this with great success to fight acne. It was just the right strenght without being too strong. Nowadays I wash especially my chest and my shoulders with this, as my face has turned drier, but those areas still get a little oily, this mends them nicely. The smell of this stuff is quite med-like, but it gives a feeling that I'm using something that's both safe and effective. This liquid is definetely a staple product with the finnish healthcare professionals and their families- some workplaces, like hospitals have the possibility to order some pharmacy products with a prize slightly lower than retail, and this is THE product practically every nurse and doctor orders for themselves and their families =) Germans really know their stuff making producs like these.
This is the most moisturizing shower lotion I've used. Very good for my dry and upset winter-skin. Skin feels hydrated and calm after shower. I like the fact that eventhough this is so gentle and has some oil in it, it allows skin to breathe as it doesn't leave a oily residue on the skin. I'm left with just a clean, moistened skin and when I apply body lotion straight away, the feeling stays with me 'till the next shower. Sheer heaven!
This is such a great product to have in your handbag/backpack for emergencies. I usually don't like sprays but this one comes in such a handy bottle I can't help using it sometimes. Keeps me dry pretty well, but probably not enough if I we're to use it on it's own. Nice smell, just have to watch out how it goes with the current perfume, if wearing one.

This was a very basic deodorant. Didn't perform miracles but kept me quite dry and odourless. I liked the big ball. It didn't take too much time to dry so that I could get dressed. The only con was that I happened to pick the wrong bottle with a very powdery scent which I didn't like. I'll probably be repurchasing, but definetely in another scent.
This has same no-good qualities as the cream itself; unbelievable prize, awfull smell and no healing/caring power what so ever. Don't waste your money.
