I'm on a lotion kick right now because of winter and washing my hands so much at work. This body butter is amazing! Nice and thick. It does take a minute or two to absorb completely in to my skin but the result is worth it. Smells really good, too. Sort of a clean, fresh, musky smell that lasts a few hours. Can't wait to try more from this line.
I have dry, cracked knuckles from washing my hands so much at work. I tried quite a few lotions and this was the only one that helped. It's thick and rubs right into my skin. It has a very light sweet vanilla-y scent. I also like that it has a flip-top lid. I'm so glad a friend gave this to me because I may never have tried it on my own. They also sell little tins of this and they're great for travel but a little messy to use.
Expensive but worth it! Perfect after meal tea or when you're sick or just cuddling up under a blanket. I like it hot or cold and it's sweet and refreshing. The mint isn't too overpowering and I don't even need to add sugar.
This tastes exactly like the Aveda Comforting Tea, just stronger. I use it as a breath freshener and I also add it to bottled water to make it less boring.
This is my favorite Demeter fragrance. It's sweet and a little bit green. Hard to describe. I only wish it lasted longer!
Lips -Yves Saint Laurent - Volupte Sheer Candy Glossy Balm

I had seen these advertised in magazines but I thought $30 was a bit too much for a lip balm. Then I got some GC's to Sephora and figured I would splurge. I got #5 Mouthwatering Berry. The balm is very soft and smooth and smells really good. It lasts a decent amount of time for a balm and you can use the lid as mirror! Would have been 5 stars if it were less expensive.
I, too, love this balm! It makes me very happy to see there is a brush in the lid. No mess! It smells like watermelon candy but the fragrance is very light and slowly disappears as you wear it. The consistency is sort of thick but it's not sticky at all and it's very sheer. It lasted about 2 hours before I had to reapply. $8 is a bit more than I want to pay for lip balm but since it's LE, I figured I would splurge for the pink one and I'm glad I did. The only thing I would add is a mirror in the lid.
I'm not usually a fan of fruity scents but I like this one! It smells like creamy strawberries. One spray lasts all day. I would say it's aimed toward the under-25 crowd but I'm in my 30's and get compliments on it all the time. Very fresh and fruity, non-offensive scent. Perfect for hot humid summers.
I used the oil in my hair for the first time last night. I cannot believe the difference already! My hair is long and straight and gets tangled easily. The ends also seem to get dry even though I don't use anything to style my hair. My hair feels like it does when I get it washed and cut at a salon. Smooth and shiny! The oil smells really good. Sort of a tropical/creamy scent but not really coconutty which is good because I usually don't like coconut. The bottle is glass with a screw-on lid. I wish it were plastic and more travel friendly but I will definitely be buying this again. Retail price differs but I got mine at a local salon in a little travel kit with mini shampoo, conditioner, styling creme and an extra teeny travel size oil for $40.
