Yesterday

I'm very happy with this candle. The listed fragrance notes include apples and pumpkins blended with ginger and clove. And that's just what it smells like. Not too strong on the spices, and not cloyingly sweet. It's going to last a long time, too. I've been burning it all weekend and the jar is still almost full. Will repurchase.

Candles - Bath & Body Works - Pumpkin Pecan Waffles

This is a decent candle, when on sale. The listed fragrance notes are pumpkin-spiced waffles with brown sugar and maple syrup. I didn't detect much pumpkin but did notice a strong buttery note. Very sweet, which is fine with me. But if I was burning this candle in a small room it might be overpowering. It's good for those super-cold days when you want to eat (and smell) comfort food …Read more

I bought the two-wick, tumbler version of this candle on sale for 25% off. Ounce for ounce, it cost less than Bath & Body Works candles, which are what I usually buy. I figured this one was worth a try because of the good price, and because it smelled good in the jar. It smells even better burning - just like mulled cider. The labels says it will last for 75 - 110 hours. I've been …Read more

I would buy this candle again many times over and would eat it if I could. No fake fragrance notes, just apples, caramel, and cinnamon. It really smells like I'm making caramel apples in the kitchen, without the mess. The throw is good and quite sweet. The artwork on the side of the jar is cute, too - a drawing of a caramel apple and some fall leaves.

Mascara - COVERGIRL - Lash Blast Active Mascara

I switched to this mascara after using the CoverGirl Lash Blast Volume Waterproof, and hearing the rave reviews. I was skeptical as this mascara is not waterproof but claims to be sweat-proof, smudge-proof, and clump-proof for up to 24 hours of wear. I have deep-set eyes and oily lids, so any mascara that is not waterproof tends to be a disaster on me. This mascara was not a disaster, nor was it …Read more

I cannot believe how real this candle smells! Blueberry pancakes with maple syrup - just like if I was making them in my kitchen. Very good throw, too. And no fake, plastic fragrance notes. The wax is a royal blue color and looks great in the clear glass container. I plan to buy more of these for my own use and for gifts in fall & winter.

Hair Treatments - Kevin Murphy - Leave-In Repair

Not impressed with this product. I finished the bottle as it was too expensive to waste. I paired it with the Kevin Murphy shampoo and conditioner, and other professional shampoo and conditioner. But it did not help to smooth my hair. Then I checked the ingredient list and noticed that the first ingredient is water, and the second is dimethicone. No wonder. Very disappointing for a high-end salon …Read more

This is a decent deodorant & antiperspirant. I like the sweet vanilla fragrance and that I don't have to wait for the product to dry before getting dressed (but I do have to make sure my armpits are very dry before applying it or it feels sticky for hours). Secret promises that this product will provide odor and wetness protection for 48 hours. I get a day and night of odor protection …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

Really happy with this BHA exfoliant, especially compared to the gel version. This one works just as well as the gel, but it doesn't leave a residue and therefore doesn't make my foundation ball up. It's just like a liquid toner, so I use it right after washing my face and before applying serum and spf. Just finished my first container and am off to order another one.

This eye cream is exactly as advertised. And I'd be thrilled with that except for developing milia. Not the eye cream's fault. Apparently I'm not ready for such a rich eye cream. I used the remainder of the tube for my neck and really liked the results. Will not repurchase any time soon but will keep in mind in a few years when my skin gets drier.
