Moisturizers - NUXE - Creme Fraiche de Beaute (for normal skin)

Jun/23/2015

First off, the ingredient list provided here is for the original version of this product. It has been reformulated, and, although it still contains a lot of the original ingredients, it is now paraben-free. The scent is still a rather strong orange blossom fragrance as well. I have used a travel tube of this and just started on a jar. So far, I like it much better than the original formula (which …Read more

Candles - Unlisted Brand - Illume - Pineapple Cilantro Candle

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/12/2014

I love Illume Pineapple Cilantro candles! They smell like fresh pineapple -- plain and simple. Don't let the other notes listed confuse you. These are the only pineapple candles on the market that don't have a weird undertone that triggers migraines for me. The same scent by Yankee Candle smells more like a tropical blend so if that's what you're looking for stick with YC …Read more

Fragrances - Antonia's Flowers - Sogni Del Mare

5.0

Aug/23/2014

I'm a huge fan of Antonia's Flowers! All of their scents are lovely and unique. Sogni del Mare is no exception. This line of fragrances have an odd habit of smelling one way when you spray them on and totally different a few minutes later -- but in a wonderful way. Sogni del Mare smells like celery when I spray it on. Five to ten minutes later it softens into a beautiful, almost …Read more

Moisturizers - 100% Pure - Coffee Cherry Caffeine Face Cream

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/09/2010

I have insanely sensitive, acne/irritation prone, dry skin. I've struggled with it for over a decade. In the process, I've tried everything from Avon to La Mer to prescriptions and beyond. I've found only one other cream that worked for me (Jo Malone Ginseng Day Moisturiser), but it is highly fragranced and that that bothered me sometimes, so I decided to try 100% Pure. I'm so …Read more

Moisturizers - Jo Malone - Ginseng Day Moisturising Cream

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/28/2010

Let me start by saying that I have EXTREMELY sensitive, combination/dry skin. If I use anything to light, I dry out. If I use anything to heavy, I break out. And nearly everything causes a reaction of some kind. I have tried everything from Avon to La Mer to dermatologists' brands and recommendations and beyond. This is the best moisturizer I have found in over 15 years of searching for an …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Honeysuckle and Jasmine

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2010

Honeysuckle and Jasmine is an uncomplicated, fresh, floral scent. Very innocent smelling yet sophisticated at the same time. I think it would be perfect for any age range. The first time I smelled it I remember thinking it would be a beautiful choice for a young girl's first perfume (instead of all of this tutti fruitti crap geared towards them). I appreciate the simplicity of Honeysuckle …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Verbenas de Provence

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2010

Verbenas of Provence is a fabulous citrus scent! It is one of the few citrus fragrances that has any complexity to it at all, but the overall impression is still very simple and subtle. It starts out lemony, but as it dries down it becomes very soft and clean with notes you can't really put your finger on. It is a light scent, but, on me, has much more staying power than …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - French Lime Blossom

4.0
Created with Sketch.

May/10/2010

French Lime Blossom is a scent that I didn't like at first. I don't like linden blossom and that is one of the notes. However, once that wears off a little, I love it! It smells clean, and is very long lasting which is not usually the case with Jo Malone scents, or, at least, not the ones I like. Thankfully, it doesn't smell powdery on my skin at all. It has a good bit of lily of …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Nutmeg and Ginger

4.0

May/10/2010

I really like Nutmeg and Ginger. It is one of my favorite Jo Malone scents, in fact. Another reviewer said that it smells like Origins Ginger Essence. I disagree, and I have them both. I much prefer the Nutmeg and Ginger. It has a warmer quality, and, on me, dries down to a lovely skin scent (the Origins is more citrusy). I get lots of compliments on it -- from people of all ages. It can have a …Read more

Fragrances - Robert Piguet Parfums - Fracas

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/01/2010

I love Fracas! To be a classic scent, it smells very modern to me. I can't see anyone ever referring to this as an "old lady scent." It's said to have been one of Marilyn Monroe's favorites (along with Chanel No. 5, of course). It's fabulous! Bold but girly. In fact, I'd have to say it's one of the most feminine fragrances I own, and I'm a perfume …Read more
