I can't really understand all the hype about this product. To me, it is an average hand cream that has a strong smell. It sinks well into the skin, yes, but my hands aren't soft enough after I use it. I can easily find other products that work better for the same price (Caudalie hand cream, for example).

I love this product! The color choice is great for my pale skin, it is moisturizing and it stays put on the lips for a long time. For the price, you can't beat this if you want a natural product. Wonderful find!

Ah! That smell! A unique mix of sweet vanilla and Christmas-type spices that is unique, lovely, yummy, addictive. I've first smelled the Vanilla Spice shower gel after reading positive reviews on the B&B board. My expectations were high and I was a bit afraid that the product will let me down. It was not the case! I bought the shower gel for its smell, but I fast dicovered that its …Read more

When I bought a large sample of Daphin's Eau de beauté aromatique Hydro-Relax (a wonderful, relaxing, floral fragrance), I received a lot of samples, including a "deluxe" sample of this hand cream. I've used it for a week now, and I've very pleased with it. It has a nice, slightly sweet smell, sinks in really fast and, best of all, you only need a little to cover both …Read more

Bath Treatments - CLARINS - Bain aux Plantes Relax (Relax Bath)

For a shower gel or a foam bath, this is an expensive product, but for its unique, incredible smell, it is worth every cents, in my humble opinion. I use this product as a shower gel, in the evening, when I want to calm down. The hard-to-describe, herbal scent, really has a relaxing effect on me. Placebo effect? I don't know, but it works...

Toners - CLARINS - Toning Lotion (Alcohol Free) All

Let me begin by saying that I love toners. I use them at least twice a day, after cleansing my face, to remove makeup residues and freshen up. This one by Clarins is one of my favorite : it doesn't have any alcohol, has never burned my skin and smells really nice. I don't know if the plants extracts are any good for the skin, but they don't irritate mine. A keeper!

Toners - CLINIQUE - Clarifying Lotion #3

Terrible product IMO. This toner, highly recommended by my Clinique saleswoman, burned my oily skin everyday for the 2 months I used it. Finally, even though I hate throwing things away , I just poured down the last drops of the toner down the drain. Please stay away from the Clinique toners, except the mild one, if your skin is sensible.

Lip Gloss - CLINIQUE - Long Last Glosswear - Mystic

Come Clinique GWP time, I'm always happy to test some new lip products that I may not have bought otherwise. This gloss is one of them. In the clear tube, it looks quite dark, but once on the lips, the colour is very sheer, with tiny shimmers that give a subtle glow. The result is OK, but nothing spectacular or different from others for the price you pay.

Mar/09/2004

I've looked for the perfect foundation for quite a long time. I have oily skin with redness on the cheeks and occasionnal breakouts. I bought Virtual Skin about 6 months ago and used it many times a week since. I love Prescriptives color choices, which match a lot of skin tones. Virtual Skin provides a sheer-to-medium coverage that is quite natural. I wish it would blend better …Read more

Deodorants - Tom's of Maine - Natural Deodorant

As a rule, I buy beauty products that are not tested on animals and are not made with animal by-products. Tom's of Maine line fits that description perfectly. I've bought this brand deos for years, even though they are not the most effective around, in my opinion. They are perfect for days when you study or work at the office and do not have to run around. My favorite, so far, is …Read more
