AZW is my favorite candle company. The candles are soy, they last a long time, and are generously scented. Buying them when she has sales or from the scratch&dent sections makes for an especially good deal. My favorite scents so far: creme brulee, red current, and mantra. :)

The smell good dry, but they didn't smell much at all in the bath. They are pretty and fizzy, and turned the water very very aple pink... I wouldn't buy these again, since you can buy bath fizzes at the drug store that smell better (in the water), and moisturize some. Dissapointing
This is my current favorite lip balm. I use it whenever I want moisturized lips, but not a particular look. I really like the way it tastes and smells. Pricey for lip balm, but not expensive in the grand scheme of things.

This is the best smelling hair product I've ever tried. Too bad it does literally nothing for my hair :( I'm so dissapointed! If my DH hadn't bought this for me on a biz trip, I'd swap it.
This didn't work for me. It isn't very fizzy, isn't at all moisturizing, and didn't smell good. I was expecting a sweet, vanilla or almond smell from reading the ingredients. To me it smelled slightly bitter and of lilacs. I don't like the smell of lilacs. Bah, I'm really dissapointed!

Do not use this product anywhere near your eyes!!! Trust me, it burns. Extremely menthol/minty stick in a golden color. Very dry for a lip product. Ok on cheeks. Painful of used even near the eye area because of the fumes that come off this stuff. I can't believe Sephora doesn't mention the minty smell and reccommends this for your eyes! I'll never repurchase.
I bought this for my Dad for father's day because he loves Kahala Hawaiian shirts, and I had to test it out on DH to make sure it smelled good ;) I love this! Its is my favorite Demeter yet! It is more perfumish and less a novelty than the pick-me-ups. Lava Rock is a warm, very slightly smoky, spicy scent. Its mostly spice with some woody, incensy undertones. Pretty unisex, but leans more to the masculine side. It seems to last much better than other Demeters I've tried as well. Highly reccommended.
Cute packaging, great product, somewhat overpriced. The initial scent is full-on buttery popcorn, which fades after a few minutes to a more true butter frosting scent. The smell lingers on me for hours, basically until I wash my hands again. I like the lotion itself a great deal, very moisturizing but not greasy.

This has the same creamy consistency and moisturizing (for skin, not hair) qualities as the rest of the 3 in 1's. I love peppermint, so I had high hopes for a bright, cheery mint scent. Overall, I'm pleased. I detect little to no chocolate smell, mostly a sharp mint with something smooth and creamy, maybe a hint of coconut. I probably won't repurchase, since I love trying new 3 in 1's - but I would reccommend this to mint lovers :)
Eh. Ok, not super. I like the soft, pretty smell and the peachy pink color of the water. Didn't have flowers or glitter, which is a plus or minus depending on mood. I didn't like how dried out this made my skin! I'll be skipping this in the future in favor of the more moisturizing bombs.
This is a great heavy-duty conditioner. It leaves my dry, firzzy hair soft and silky. It smells weird in the tub and on hair, but when rinsed out you hair will smell of violets. Gorgeous. Pretty expensive at $20/8oz, and the tub packaging isn't ideal - but overall a superior product.
I love the Bon Bomb! It looks small, but is packed with little bits of body butter. It turned my bath a pretty blue-green, and smelled amazing. The smell was lemony when dry, and more like fruit punch or sherbet when dissolved. It provided plenty of punch for my large (6'x3') bathtub. Highly recommended, will buy again despite the ridiculous price.
My Mom gave me this from her free gift. I have the Foxy shade. YLBB, not too sticky, unscented. Does stay like a lipstick, shine lasts, and continues moisturizing too! Maybe not hg, but pretty darn good.
For me and my skin, this is the HG foundation. I have combination acne/rosacea skin that is alternately broken out and flaking off. Other foundations have either broken me out more or brought attention to the dry parts of my face. I wear Complete Me in N1, the lightest color. It has a very subtle sheen that is quite forgiving, and never breaks me out. Best of all, it feels like you aren't wearign anything, even if you layer it on for more coverage. The best.
This is my first Demeter experience. I wasn't sure what to expect, but any expectation I had was blown away by this scent. Its immediate impression is just like a hot, humid night outside with a bonfire. There's notes of earth, grass, and smoke. It lingers as a smoky, green smell. For a quick pick-me-up, this is perfect. It takes you out of your immediate environment.
