This has been an HG product of mine for years and I'm actually devastated it was discontinued. People that have complained it doesn't work did not use the correct application to fill in and disguise large pores. Using a concealer brush (this is important for precision) to tap into pores, allow it to sit for a minute, and then gently pat it in to blend, this product works miracles. Just …Read more

Having spent 4 months in London on a study-abroad program, I can say that this fragrance truly reminds me of my time spent in England. Call it great marketing, packaging, whatever, but this wonderful scent is truly reminescent of my walks in Hyde Park and shopping at Harrod's. The scent is smoky, warm and unexplicably calming. It reminds me of sitting in a pub in London with a glass of …Read more

One of the only perfumes I've ever worn that actually made me sick to my stomach. I was initially attracted to this unique scent, but with longer wear, it's like inhaling a cheap bar of soap or detergent all day. What a disappointment.

As a huge fan of CK One, I thought I would love this. I even made the purchase without trying out the fragrance first. Huge mistake! The bottle is beautiful, but the scent is reminiscent of chemicals and a bad lime/lemon scent (not fresh, like I expected). Since I own a ton of fragrances and am generally easy to please when it comes to scents, I was really surprised at how disappointed I was …Read more

Bloom Lip Gloss in Baby Cake is one of my favorite glosses. It's not too thick, not too shiny, smells nice, and is long lasting. It's a beautiful pink color that looks great with my ultra pale skin. I've gotten several compliments on it. Best of all, it doesn't dry out my lips, which are prone to chapping. I would also describe this product as a quick fix. If I'm …Read more

This is an excellent lip exfoliator. I just wish I could find a holy grail moisturizer to use after the exfoliation--because you definitely need one. It removes dry skin you didn't even know you had! It's slightly abrasive for severely dry/cracked lips (the kind you get from Accutane), but a great choice for periodic exfoliation for mildly dry lips. My only real complaint about this …Read more

Feb/28/2003

This was an incredible disappointment. I called Saks New York to order this after all the rave reviews. My hopes were high that I would finally have discovered my holy grail foundation. The color (#2) matched extremely well with my very pale skin. It also blended fairly evenly. However, it did nothing to control my ultra oily skin. It also somehow managed to emphasize some flaking/dryness …Read more

Hard to believe, but this foundation has beaten out every other brand I've tried...even the highly touted Giorgio Armani Silk Foundation. I have extremely oily, acne-prone skin. I usually use blotters throughout the day (the first as soon as an hour or so after initial foundation application...really oily), but only need to blot around twice a day with this product. It controls oil and …Read more

An outstanding conditioner for my thick, chemically-treated, long hair. Doesn't weigh it down or leave a "coated" feeling that many other products will do. Leaves you with incredible softness and manageability. Oh, and the smell doesn't bother me at all...It certainly doesn't linger once you wash it out, so for something this effective, I can do without the floral or …Read more

Couldn't get this to work at all on my lips (doesn't go on evenly and is very drying). It does provide a fairly lasting flush color on the cheeks, but it emphasizes every last scar and imperfection. For acne-prone or otherwise less then perfect skin, look elsewhere.
