I LOVE this fragrance!! the only complaint I have is that I wish it would last a bit longer. I would probably say it lasts for about 4 hours, but i do only have the roll on oil. So maybe that has something to do with it. But, this fragrance is sweet, elegant and sexy all rolled into one. I feel like I am on a beach whenever I where it.
I hate this fragrance!! and I like sweet smelling perfumes. I love Hanae Mori Butterfly, Dolce and Gabana the one and Il Profumo Vanille Bourbon. I even like Ed Hardy! This smells like old cigars that were put out in a ashtray full of cherry cough syrup...YUCK!! A total scrubber!!

I love this stuff! I own the absolu version. It has great longevity. I put it on in the morning and I can still smell it the next day. Oh... My husband loves the way it smells on me! I have tried a lot of vanilla's and they almost all turn into that plastic smell on me. I love this one its still simple amd sweet, but not too simple. It's a floral vanilla. Love it!
Fragrances -La Maison de la Vanille - Vanille Noire du Mexique

This is the only la maison vanille that I like, and at first I did not love it. All the others were a little old smelling and kind of like rotten fruit with florals. I ordered the sampler. I kept on trying different ones trying to see if I would like them because they are so raved about..and I love vanilla. After trying all of them over and over again I kept on coming back to Vanille Noire du Mexique. I am not a huge fan of the opening notes but the complete dry down is amazing!!! Its warm and inviting with just a touch of a powdery note so it is not too sweet. I love it! YUMMM! I do think this is more of a fall to winter fragrance because of how warm it is.
This is weird on me. I'm kind of on the fence. I don't dislike it. But, I don't really like it either. I can smell the coconut and some of the florals but not much else..Hmmm. I really want to love this.
Fragrances -I Profumi di Firenze - Vaniglia del Madagascar

This is a very clean vanilla. Like a vanilla mixed with soap or cleaner. I don't really know what I think of it yet. I love rich warm orchid vanillas and this is not that. Well, I am still on the search for the perfect vanilla. Any suggestions just let me now.
I hate this fragrance!! I agree it smells like moldy pumpkin. YUCK!!!!
Ok. So I have never been able to wear Gardenia. It always turns too thick or something. But, I love the smell of a it on other people and in the bottle. This is the first Gardenia scent that I have been able to wear and I love it. It is just amazing. I think it is great for any age! And for some reason it brings me to Maui. Its a keeper.
I really wanted to like this. I LOVE vanilla!! But this is way too powdery for me. Maybe it is just my chemistry. Oh well.. I am still on the search for the perfect vanilla fragrance. Any ideas just let me know.
Ok.. So I have been using AVST1 for a good few months now and my skin have not looked so good since I was a teenager. I love this skin cream. I have very very sensitive skin. I have actually been diagnosed with a weird form of contact dermatitis. Everything bugs my skin. Anyway, I had been having issues with blemishes and uneven skin tone. I also have very dry skin. I do live in Nevada. This moisturizer did the trick. My skin is smooth and supple again. I love it!!
I love this gel eye serum. It is vitamin A based and works very well to keep my eyes looking awake and not puffy. It also does not cause milia in the eye area. Love it!! I think the price point it good too.

I love this stuff. This is a great product. I is a great primer no matter what foundation I wear that day. I also love that Vapour is natural and organic. Can't get much better than that.

I actually really like this. It is not a full coverage makeup, but if I take care of my skin this looks beautiful on. It just even things out and makes me look naturally beautiful.
I am kind of on the fence about this product. I find that it was working great for the first few months. I did go through what is called the healing crisis and then healed from that and everything looked great. Even skin tone, no blemishes and then about three months after using it consistently. I broke out everywhere and my skin hurt. Like really hurt, it was like my skin was too tight for my face. Weird huh! So I don't know, try it and see what you think. I know that I have weird and sensitive skin to just about everything.
Treatments (Eye) -Nude Skincare - Advanced Eye Complex

I love love love this eye cream. I think that this is the one and only eye treatment that has actually done something for me. It is really expensive, but if you buy three of the small $18 kit from Sephora it equals the same amount as the full size and it is greatly less. You also get several other goodies. I have fallen in love with the whole nude line. I originally loved the oil cleanser and when I emailed the company and asked for some samples of the other products they were happy to oblige me. I used to have big dry patches and acne on my face and I did not know what to do about them. They are now totally gone and my skin is very even. I use the whole line, but I think that this is one of my favorites. I can totally tell when I have not been using it for a while. Try it.. you will love it.
