This is my go to perfume for everyday, I have others but I always come back to this....It's light, floral, clean, I love this. It makes me feel pretty when I wear it and I ALWAYS have someone ask me what I am wearing and that they love it..... If you like Strong Perfumes and Woodsy scents you won't like this, But if you like light floral notes and just clean scents you should give this a try...A little goes a long way and I can't say enough great things about it, been using it for 8 years now and when I run out I go re-purchase!
Initially this smells great, Kinda like the original Marc Jacobs.....but then you wear it for 30 minutes and it smells so much like old lady perfume, I can't express to you the headache it gave me....A mix between floral and dirt with a little insense mixed in.... I would not repurchase....
Love this Brush, Small and compact comes with lid so it won't bronze up your makeup bag and works as well as some of the Sephora brushes I've tried!!!! Definatley worth the money, Think I paid like $7 for mine and I have had it for almost a year and it's still going. Unlike some other Kabuki brushes I have tried the shed on this one is minimal, I mean they all shed some but this doesn't do it all the time..Will re-purchase a new one for summer for sure...Love it!
This is great for a good glow! I purchased this in Prettied Up which I think is the lightest shade they offer, it's the one with more pinks than bronzes. I hair fair skin, Not the fairest but pretty fair and this was perfect for me, I think the other ones if you have fair skin would be to dark. Apply with Kabuki brush for best results. (reason for four stars)...Maybe it's just this color but it does have allot of shimmer, so I usually just do one to two applications, Unless you want to look like an extra in Twilight....So little goes a long way... It is a little pricey for an Avon/Mark product in my opinion but it does last a long time. I would re-purchase.
Moisturizers -Boots - No7 Lifting and Firming Night Cream

I love this night cream, I use the day cream as well and the combo is perfect. However this is made for Dry or Mature Skin....I have very dry skin and this works great, but if you have normal to oily then I don't think this cream is for you, I hope this is why it's not getting very good reviews, b/c it's a great cream for dry/mature skin!!! I am 31 so I don't consider my skin mature yet.....Let me hold on to it for a little bit longer...lol....So as far as wrinkles and saggy skin I don't have that yet, So I can't attest to if this works for that yet, but for my dry skin I love it and it brightens and softens my skin tremendously....and for $20 bucks you can't beat it...Give it a go if you're the Dry/Mature skin type..
Moisturizers -Boots - No7 Lifting & Firming Day Creme

This is great for dry skin, It would be WAY to heavy in my opinion for oily skin, Maybe normal skin in winter would be ok but may even be to heavy then as well. I have DRY skin ALL YEAR, So this works great for me does work well with the Protect and Perfect Serum and it has a decent SPF so all in all I love this cream. My bottle says Lift and Luminate, not sure if this is the same one but I think it is. My skin is brighter and prettier in my opinion while using this. I have slight breakouts around my time of month and this doesn't make it worse at all. And the price is decent compared to other brands $20 can't beat that. If you have dry or mature skin this would be great for you.
Treatments -Boots - No 7 Protect and Perfect Intense

LOVE LOVE LOVE....Not sure why this is getting such negative reviews, But I love this and all of the Boots No 7 products...This is great, I use it day and night, At night I use prior to my Boots No 7 Lift and Luminate Night Cream and in the day I use over my Boots No 7 Day cream b/c It works GREAT as a makeup primer. Has brightened my skin, shrinked my pores and they were the size of Mount Rushmore....And just all over made my skin smooth and soft...I am in my early thirties and trying to do my best to prevent wrinkles, I don't have any at this point so I can't attest for the anti-aging aspect of this serum now, But I bet in years to come I will be glad I used this and all Boots No 7 products!! The price compared to drugstore is a little much but compared to department store it's great and works better than any of them ever have for me any way....It's usually around $24 at Target and it last me about two months with day and night use. Try it!
A+++++++++. I have hormonal acne, only break out around that time of month if you know what I mean and I was using Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash, which works great if you don't have dry skin but for me and my dry skin just not so much so I was looking for something to help with the breakouts and not dry me out. After reading several reviews I decided to try this, And the price was amazing as well. I think I paid $7 at Drugstore.com, Anyways, I've been using it for almost a month along with my Boots No 7 Day and Night Cream and I LOVE IT...It has cleared up my blackheads, helped with clearing up my acne (I still break out but it's hormonal so not the cleanser's fault) and best of all DOES NOT LEAVE ME FEELING DRY AND TIGHT!!!!! Leaves me looking like I just had a facial....I will never use another face wash again, And it's super cheap!!!!!!!
The stuff was OK, I do have hormonal acne and it didn't cause that to flare up or break me out, So this definatley did not cause breakouts. However I was looking for a little more than what this cream gave me.....I have dry combo skin, in the winter my skin is very dry so to me this did not help that at all... I also didn't notice any brightening at all and my pores did not shrink. I think for someone in their early twenties with good skin this product would be great.... but if you're looking for something where you are going to see results this is not going to work out for you....Dry skin will not benefit from this at all....That bieng said what works for some doesn't work for all......
Didn't love or hate this product......It's decent, I have thick curly/wavy hair, this product didn't in my opinion make a huge difference in my hair and I used it for months, I think Suave Morrocan Infusion does a better job and it's way cheaper...(See My Reviews)...So would I re-purchase?? NO...... But it's not terrible, And what works for some may not work for others.......But if I am going to spend this much money on a product line I want miracles....The Oil is amazing but the rest not so much......
I didn't care for the shampoo and conditioner in this line but I did love this oil, It's very dry so once you put it in your hair it doesn't leave that greasy feeling behind on your hair or your hands. It smells great and does it's job. Good for curly, wavy or thick hair to just wash throw some in and let air dry, helps make curls more defined without the frizz. Also great as a heat shield prior to blow drying and flat or curling iron. I can't say enough good things about this product, However the price of this is a little more that what I want to pay at this time in my life (reason for 4 stars) So I use the Suave Morrocan Infusion oil and it works almost as good. But if you don't mind the price I would purchase this over any and I mean any Argan Oil out there, Works Great!!!
I thought this shampoo was just OK, I didn't think it was terrible and I didn't think it was great either, I tried this out on the suggestion from my stylist, I used the Shampoo, Conditioner and Oil. This shampoo lathers pretty well for a sulfate free so that was good, My hair looked decent it did help a little with my frizz and dryness but not enough for me to spend the money on it everytime I run out, I use the Suave Morrocan Infusion which is way cheaper and works way better in my opinion. Won't repurchase.
Styling Products -Suave - Suave Professionals Volumizing Mousse

I love this Mousse, However I have thick curly/wavy hair and the reason I love this over their version for curly hair is b/c this doesn't make me look CRUNCHY which I hate. I could see where if you had thin hair you wouldn't like it as it would be to heavy, But for thick curly/wavy hair this works great.....Holds my curls/wave without the crunch and smells great! It's my go to for over three years now.
LOVE LOVE......Use the whole line (Shampoo, Conditioner, Oil and Mask) This oil is great and a little goes a long way, I have not tried the Morrocanoil line so not sure about the comparision, But I have used Redken All Soft w/Argan Oil and to me this does the same thing for less money. I have thick curly/wavy hair that tends to frizz, Now I wash, Use my It's a 10 leave in along with the oil and me hair is perfect all day.A++++++++.....Will re-purchase!
I LOVE THIS LINE! I have never tried the Morrocanoil line so I can't speak if this works as good as that but I have used the Redken All Soft w/Argan Oil and to me this is way better. I am trying to stay on a budget and get away from ONLY using high end brands, B/C let's face it sometimes you do what you have to do. I was skeptical of this at first, But Honestly I like most of the Suave Pro line and this is no exception. I use the whole line, And I have used both the Color Care and Shine Shampoo/Conditioner (They work the same in my opinion), also use the shine mask and the oil and it's great as well. I have thick curly/wavy hair with frizz and this helps a ton, I now wash, put a little It's A 10 leave in along with the Sauve Argan Oil and go and my curls are more defined and NO Frizz...So give this a try you won' be sorry and you can get the whole line for about $12-15 bucks. So if you hate it then you're not out much money.....
