Narciso Rodriguez always makes beautiful scents, and the bottles are to die for. I love how they are painted from the inside. This is similar to the Narciso EDP, except instead of gardenia it has peony and rose. There is a lovely musk in the heart, and vetiver and cedar in the base. It is a skin scent, somewhat powdery. A man could wear this if he wanted, it's got a unisex quality to it …Read more

This is an okay micellar water from Avene, but I do not like the fragrance in this product. Otherwise it's fairly gentle, but I am not very happy about the amount of fragrance in this product.

I love this moisturizer! It has a lot of pluses for me. First of all, it comes in a pump. This is my preference as I use less product, and it keeps the formula stable. When you open a jar, every time you are exposing the product to air and it degrades or loses it's potency after time. I have oily skin, and this makes my skin feel clean and matte, which is really important. Most times when I …Read more

This is a great mask! I couldn't believe how smooth and soft my skin felt after using this. I use it a couple times a week, my skin is generally oily, but this feels like a nice bandage. When I awoke the next morning, my skin felt great, and it looked radiant! I wasn't expecting huge changes, but it really felt nourished and protected. This is for any skin type, and it's a great …Read more

Initially when I heard Chanel was finally releasing a new pillar fragrance, I was excited. At first I found it to be fairly linear and pretty. Now that I have had time to spend with the fragrance, I really just find it to be kind of dull and boring. I'm not sure what I was hoping for, but this is a fairly basic floral scent. If you like floral scents, you may love this. For me, it …Read more

Cleansers - La Roche-Posay - Effaclar Deep Cleansing Foaming Cream

This is a great cleanser from La Roche-Posay for oily/acne prone skin. I can see why this would be drying for some, but if your skin is very oily, this should do the trick. It's a nice foaming cream cleanser that you only need a small amount of to use. I find a tube of this will last me almost 6 months! If your skin isn't too oily, you could use the Effaclar gel cleanser instead. I love …Read more

To me this is a really green fragrance, but musky at the same time. I love it for summer. It's refreshing and interesting. The fragrance features floral notes, ylang-ylang, patchouli, pink pepper, ginger, vetiver, benzoin and incense.

This is one of my favorite fragrances ever for men. Vetiver is so sexy and Tom Ford does it well. This is so modern and sophisticated. It makes me feel dressed up, like I'm wearing a suit, but it is good for casual wear too.

Cafe Rose has very straight forward, pleasant and intense rose scent in the top and middle notes and the rose becomes more subtle with a hint of sandalwood in the dry down. Top notes are saffron, black pepper and may rose; middle notes are turkish rose, bulgarian rose and coffee; base notes are incense, amber, sandalwood and patchouli.

First spray I smell what smells like fresh cut daffodils pollen and all. The green notes give it what it needs to smell real and I don't get much bitter orange blossom...some angelica.
Definitely an amber base, it sweetens the entire thing from start to finish and makes it better.
Top notes are cyclamen, mimose, angelica, violet leaf and bitter orange blossom; middle note is …
