On me this is a rosey, musky, crisp raspberry. The raspberry is very pronounced but sophisticated for a fruity scent.
This disappears on me almost immediately. Lovely could have been a HG but as soon as this dries it's gone.
Super potent spicey woody vanilla. This was my HG but lately I'm finding it a bit much. It's way too powerful sometimes, even if I only have a few drops of mist on it's all I can smell for hours. It's warm and comforting but lately I've been reaching for Burberry Brit Red when I'm in that kind of mood. It's been a staple for 7 years so I know I'll come back to it.
Excellent mask for all skin types, I leave it on as long as possible while in the shower (it's very messy). It's helping with flakiness from using retinoids and my overall skin texture is improved. I'm finding a little moisturizer goes a lot further now, I usually have to really slather it on but not anymore since using the honey. So far I've only used it straght out of the jar and have been very happy.
I have a like/hate relationship with this one. First applied I find it intollerably strong so I spritz in the air and quickly pass one wrist through the mist. That's more than enough, this is powerful stuff!! It lasts all day and even the next morning I can still smell it. Great fragrance for Spring but very heavy. It's the only pure floral I've liked enough to buy but I won't repurchase simply because I don't think I'll ever run out of it! A tiny bit goes a long way.
Never in my life did I think I would wash my face with oil but I think this is my new HG cleanser. I use retinoids so my skin is sensitive in some areas and this cleanser doesn't irritate it at all. I have not had a break out, it removes WP mascara well (although I have to cleanse twice to get it all off), it is soothing to my dry areas AND gets rid of the oil on my T zone. I only wish it wasn't so expensive in Europe.
I only tried this on in the store so I haven't actually bought a bottle. I had actually gone shopping with the sole purpose of buying Glow as I thought it would be a nice and casual daytime fragrance. Well on me it's a very strong and MUSTY, dirty jasmine. It really does smell like dirt and mold on me, I'm not exaggerating! I took a whif of it and something, mostly the yucky jasmine, got stuck in the back of my throat and I could taste it for most of the day. I had such high hopes for this, too. =( And Jlo is out of her mind to ask so much money for something so dirty and cheap smelling.
This is not a moisturizer, I don't know how they can possibly say it is. I applied my usual moisturzer first, waited for it to sink in, then applied this TM. Well what a disaster. This TM is extremely thick and doesn't spread nicely, it's very patchy/streaky. The more I tried to blend it the worse it got because it would just ball up and fall off my face. So I washed my face and started over, this time skipping my usual moisturizer, thinking maybe I had too much product on my face and that's why it was balling up. Of course this just made the TM dryer and streakier and revealed dry patches I wasn't even aware of! This gave me big orange streaks and dry skin, even on my oily Tzone.
I only have a sample of this but I'm going to get a bottle of it today. Yay! The amber is very pronounced on me but I don't smell like I walked out of a headshop, it's fresh and lovely. The staying power is good, much better than what I experienced with Brit Red.
HG frag. I gave it a horrible review a few weeks ago but decided to edit. I love this despite it having no staying power what so ever. I got the gift pack that includes the lotion, layering helps with that. I still need to spritz throughout the day, though. I smell a warm spicey rose. I love that the rose peeks out, it's not overwhelming but definitely there. Rose scents are usually too much for me but the vanilla and gingerbread softens it.

I went to the store looking for Full n Soft but apparently it isn't sold in Holland! Hmph. This one is not too impressive, I love a natural look but this is so natural it is almost undectable. So I applied another coat and had to fight some pretty fierce clumps. I'll use it for now but I won't repurchase.
Very drying and cakey and very draggy when applied. I don't know how they can claim this is a lip treatment when I had to apply vaseline over top of it to get some moisture in my lips! The colour is too deep, I do like the colours but it looks like I have a heavy lipstick on and not a tinted balm like I was expecting. I was looking for a moisturizing flush of colour and didn't get it with this. They're dirt cheap and still not worth that.
I bought a shampoo and a conditioner and loved how it totally smoothed down my fuzzies so when I ran out I bought another set. I don't know, for some reason this time I don't like the results. My hair is always heavy and greasy feeling now and I absolutely have to wash my hair everyday and that's something I try not to do. This is too much for me to use exclusively, I'll try a clarifying treatment and see if alternating that with the sleek and shine works better. I will buy it again.
Made no difference what so ever. If anything I think it dried my scalp even more.

Oh oh oh this is bad stuff. I haven't had a pimple in about 3 years but I have stubborn blackheads I'm trying to get rid of. This horrible cream totally broke me out! NEVER in my life have I ever had a pimple on my cheek but I've got two full on whiteheads on the left one now, not to mention how bad my forehead looks! I need to do some serious damage control after using this, help!!!
