I've been searching for a replacement for Ralph Lauren Blue. This isn't really a dupe, but there are some qualities that they share. The scent is creamy but fresh. It's the first and only perfume I tried and bought on the spot at an airport duty-free in Greece. Love at first sniff ;)

I had been pretty happy with my simplistic routine of wash + Clinique moisturizing gel, but lately my oily skin has been craving more moisture. I bought this on a friend's recommendation and hated it right away. Too sticky! Yuck. I almost gifted it to my friend but he urged me to stick with it and use a veeeeery small amount. Now I'm super glad I stuck with it. Once I got over the …Read more

I bought a travel size one of the green tea and cucumber scent. I'm not a heavy sweater so I can't speak of how effective it is as an antiperspirant. I am a big fan of the scent, but my main use for it is a a blister-block: I keep it in my purse to rub it on any red, tender spots on my feet. Out all night in patent leather stilettos? Not a problem!!! Except the lid comes off very …Read more

I bought this to get some color on my legs before Sweden finally enters shorts season. This lotion smells amazing! Papaya or something very summer-y and tropical. It applies smoothly and is not greasy at all. The color it gives is very natural and my friends were so jealous, they thought I got tan on my trip to Barcelona, when in reality, it rained half the time I was there ;) I do apply with a …Read more

I'm on my 3rd tube of these. It's very moisturizing, even in Swedish winter. Love the scent and the creamy texture, especially that subtle sheen it leaves on my lips. Doesn't require a lot of re-applying. But lately it's been like -15 C out and I get the feeling that this freezes over on my lips? It kinda hardens...But it melts with body heat, so I just have to apply it and …Read more

I'm recently recovering from a major allergic reaction. I was trying out the Dan Kern's Clear Skin Regimen, but turns out I'm allergic in a big way. After a couple of nights' application, my face broke out in rashes, spreading to my lips, eyes, and neck where I didn't even apply benzoyl peroxide. It was itchy and burning and painful. My eyes were so swollen and puffy I …Read more

This is a fragrance that I try everytime I pass by a Perfume store because it's so great and so friggin expensive....A previous reviewer said that she didn't like that this reminds her of a masculine scent, but that's exactly what I love about this and my current staple Ralph Lauren Blue. I like androgenous scents that aren't too fruity or feminine. I love the bottle …Read more

This is the only fragrance I've stuck with through a bottle, and I like to think of it as my signature scent. I like that it's not too sweet nor heavy, but it's still a little bit sexy in a kind of androgenous way. I particularly like that it's not too feminine and soft. I wear it almost everyday and people often comment on the scent. Personally prefer the smaller bottles …Read more
