Fragrances - TokyoMilk - Dark Collection Tainted Love

TokyoMilk Dark Tainted Love No 62 is an awesome, beautiful scent! Not at all for young people only as I'm 61 and absolutely love this scent! I received a small sample scent with an order from Sephora and had to buy the full size which is a great value at $42.00 for 1.6 oz. It does not last as long as some of the classics that I own but for the price, I certainly don't mind spraying more …Read more

Fragrances - TOM FORD - Soleil Blanc Eau de Parfum

Aug/12/2016

I think Lady Punk has Soliel Blanc mixed up with Orchid Soliel. Orchid Soliel is definitely strong, loud and in your face. I had to wash it off, it just was not for me & I do love beachy type scents. But Soliel Blanc is a very soft beautiful scent, one that I would buy but I'm waiting for a Sephora sale as this one is very pricey at $225 for the small size. Orchid Soliel is cheap …Read more

Fragrances - Jo Malone - Mimosa & Cardamom Cologne

Dec/28/2015

8/16/16-I am editing my review: I recently sampled Cardamom & Mimosa again after I'd initially sampled it when it first came out. I think Jo Malone must have tweeked this scent after it was first launched based on the feedback she'd received. Now the scent does smell a lot stronger than it did when I first sampled it. In fact, it smelled so good, I went back and bought a small …Read more

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Skin Perfecting 8% AHA (Glycolic Acid) Gel Exfoliator

4.0

Aug/03/2015

I did write a negative overall review for Paula's Choice products because almost every moisturizer has silicones in them and many of the serums do. My skin cannot tolerate silicones, I get raised red bumps when I use anything with silicones. So I wish she offered more products that did not use sillicones in them. I also feel that her products have gotten more pricey and many of them …Read more

Skincare - Face - Paula's Choice - All Skincare

Mar/02/2015

Anyone that has issues with dimethicone or silicones should stay away from Paula's Choice products as every one of them has it in the ingredients list. My skin cannot tolerate these ingredients at all and I am very disappointed that someone with Paula's stature wouldn't at least carry some dimethicone/silicone free products for those of us that can't tolerate them. These …Read more

I disagree with CordulaM (who is an SA at Ulta and as of now it looks like her review has been deleted) and agree with Shannon804. I recently returned an item I bought online and received such a hassle from the SA and had the same experience as Shannon. I took what I thought was the sales receipt which was in the box when it was delivered and the SA said, it was the packing slip, not the receipt …Read more

Feb/06/2015

I have very ragged, torn, thick cuticles and very dry hands and have used A LOT of different brands of hand cream including La Mer, La Prairie, Rich Girl, Dauphin, Korres , etc etc looking for the HG hand cream that alleviates my problems as sometimes my cuticles crack, bleed & are painful. I received a sampler set with an order from Caudalie that had this hand cream in it. I've now been …Read more

Moisturizers - Caudalie - Huile Divine

Feb/03/2015

I disagree with Kicking's review below. IMHO the scent of this oil is wonderful. It is very fresh but also warm. I first sampled the perfume at Sephora and could not stop sniffing my arm, it was so gorgeous! It is very different from anything I currently own which leans more towards classics like Chanel #22 & #5 Eau Premiere, Carvin Le Perfume, Guerlain Shalimar Ode a la Vanille, Dolce …Read more

Candles - Caudalie - Divine Candle

Jan/21/2015

This candle is the most DIVINE scent! Yes, a play on the fragrance's name but I just love it! I first sampled the perfume at Sephora. I kept smelling my wrist all day and just knew I had to have it. The scent is very unique and fresh. I ordered a perfume & body oil set on Caudalie's website and noticed they also offered a candle. So I ordered the larger body oil and the candle in my …Read more

Fragrances - CHANEL - No. 22

Dec/31/2014

Beautiful! I bought samples of all of the Les Exclusifs and this one is the one that stood out to me as being the most gorgeous scent of them all. I've received several compliments on the scent. The bottle is pricey and huge! I don't know if I'll ever use the whole thing, it's so large! I wish Chanel would make it in smaller bottles and drop the price. They offer a travel size …Read more
