Fragrance - L'Occitane - Lavender

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/31/2010

I love L'Occitane's Lavender Harvest line, especially at bedtime. It's so relaxing and lovely. I use the foaming bath, soap and foot cream at night. I bought this fragrance thinking it would be the same heavenly scent as the others. Unfortunately, it is not. To me it has a raw, cheap incense smell to it. Not pleasant at all. It also fades quickly. If I can return it, I will. Very …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Unlisted Brand - Zeno

4.0

May/26/2009

I got the mini at Walmart yesterday on sale for only $20! I decided, why not! Tried it on a big pimple and some smaller ones. It left temporary red marks, which I expected, but nothing that didn't go away quickly. It didn't hurt badly. Got hot, but didn't burn. It's a bit tricky to use. I probably wasted a few zaps on practice tries. I'm use to it now, though, and …Read more

Bath Treatments - Fresh - Milk Line Bath Foam

5.0
Created with Sketch.

May/08/2009

I use this in Nectarine. It is a wonderful scent! Soft, not overwhelming of cloying, fresh, and the nectarine scent is a blend -- maybe with a touch of a floral, I don't know-- that gives it the most beautiful scent that's hard to describe. Definitely not too fruity or too floral. Not sweet, but not pungent. Very feminine and comforting. Great for spring and summer. I've actually …Read more

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation

Oct/21/2008

Oh my, MAC seems to have the worst foundations on the planet! Wow. I've never had luck with them, but got talked into trying this one (It's totally different! Really! right...). It does everything foundation is not suppose to do, no matter how I apply it. Streaks, doesn't cover, can't build coverage, looks odd after it sets. Then it wears horribly -- settles in every little …Read more

Lip Liners - RIMMEL - Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner - Eastend Snob

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Oct/01/2008

Wow, thanks to the MUAer who recommended this to me! I've spent tons of time and money trying to find a natural lip pencil--natural for me. Most "natural" lippies are way too beige/brown or peach/orange or Barbie pink on me. This one actually IS my natural lip color. It's a muted shell pink. Not too brown, orange or blue. Matches my skin tone better than any other I've …Read more

Fragrances - Hermès - 24, Faubourg Eau Delicate

Jul/31/2008

Must be a testament to the personal chemistry of fragrance. I had very high expectations for this one, so I ordered it before testing. It just sounded perfect. So, I spritz, wait for the drydown, and...lily, lily, LILY! That is all I smell. No complex or delicate infusion of scents. I don't even know if lily is an official note, but that's all I smell. Straight out strong and …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Fresh - Nectarine Milk Body Lotion

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/24/2008

i love this fragrance -- so wish Fresh would come out with an EDP version of this! Smells like nectarine, but not cloying, plus a clean scent I can't identify. It's lovely! I'd wear this all the time if it were an EDP. Lotion is light -- average. I think the Milk line is overpriced for the quality and the amount of product you get, but I'll continue to buy it because I'm …Read more

Bath Treatments - Laura Mercier - Creme Brulee Honey Bath

Oct/10/2007

Major disappointment. Thought this would be a relaxing stress reliever, so I splurged. Im really sorry I did. Smells nice in the jar, but the scent goes away the minute it goes in the bath! Some bubbles, but nothing lavish. Didn't sense that it did anything for my skin or make my bath water silky, nothing like that. For this price??? Grrrr! Which was the whole point of splurging on this, to …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - Philosophy - Lemonade 3 in 1

5.0

Aug/02/2007

Love this - It's so refreshing in summer! Not too sweet, not Lemon Pledgey, just a true tart lemonade scent. I use 3-in-1's as a bath soap only, so can't say how it works as a shampoo or bubble bath (but the Lemonade Bubble Bath is WONDERFUL). I love using this along with the scrub, bubble bath and body butter. HG time!

Body Scrubs - Philosophy - Lemonade Salt Scrub

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/02/2007

I almost didn't get this because I didn't like the consistency of Amazing Grace scrub at all. This is MUCH better, IMO. It's moisturizing, but not oily, and is a wonderful exfoliant. The scent is tart lemon, almost like lemon zest, which I love. Not Lemon Pledgey, not like lemon candy. Not like Lemon Sugar -- don't expect that. Like real lemonade that's not overly sweet. …Read more
