Fragrances - CLEAN - Shower Fresh

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/07/2013

Shower Fresh by Clean was very pleasant, fresh and sweet the first time I applied it. I waited a few days to try it again and to my disappointment I picked up a metallic note and a burnt note which wasn't there the first time. These two notes were also present on my nightgown and quite tenacious. I'm thinking because Clean probably uses lots of aldehydes this is the problem. There will …Read more

Fragrances - Avon - Simply Because

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2013

I think Avon may be discontinuing 'Simply Because'. I purchased it on their website at the clearance price of $4.99 not too long ago. It is, however, a very easy, wearable fruity-floral of an eau de toilette spray with a definite emphasis on the Lychee Fruit (an intense, sweet, almost spicy note). This is a fragrance I can easily wear on summer and early autumn evenings. The bottle is …Read more

Fragrances - CLEAN - Fresh Laundry EDP

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/20/2013

I purchased a clearance-priced Coffret of four CLEAN eau de parfum sprays at 1 oz. each from HSN recently. It was a very nice deal. Amongst the selection is Fresh Laundry, which I had not previously tried. It smells overwhelmingly laundry detergent/fabric softener for my taste. It certainly lingers with strong aldehyde notes and seems quite linear from the top notes to the bottom. If you enjoy …Read more

Gels/ Soaps - KORRES Natural Products - Jasmine Shower Gel

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/02/2013

Korres Jasmine Shower Gel is a powerhouse of a cleanser. Just a small amount on your sponge or facecloth goes a long, long way. And your body is cleaned, but not dried out. This can also be used as a shampoo.

The downside to the product is the rather overwhelming scent of the ultra-sweet, strong jasmine. I found that I grew tired of it as it was cloying. That's why I gave it 4 …

Shampoo - Alterna Haircare - Caviar Anti-Aging Volume Shampoo

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Nov/19/2012

The Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Volume Shampoo does provide body and bounce to my hair. I don't necessarily have to use a conditioner with it.. The scent of the shampoo is very nice and not overwhelming. I've noticed though, that with continued use, my hair doesn't have the body and bounce like the first couple of times I used this shampoo. I can't justify buying another …Read more

Fragrances - Lavanila - Vanilla Blossom

1.0
Created with Sketch.

May/17/2012

I had read some positive reviews on the Vanilla Blossom by Lavanila and thought it might suit my taste. I was so wrong. To my nose this was a cloying, heavy kitchen vanilla scent with a few green & flowery topnotes that didn't do the fragrance any good. I couldn't wait to wash the fragrance off me and to toss my clothes in the hamper at the end of the day! It was that disturbing to …Read more

Fragrances - Marilyn Miglin - Pheromone Musk

Mar/08/2012

I've worn Pheromone Musk Eau de Parfum Spray, on and off, since it first was introduced by Marilyn Miglin on HSN nearly a decade ago.

If you don't like the original Pheromone (which I do not), don't be put off by this fragrance. Though it's called Pheromone Musk, there is not a hint of the original Pheromone in it.

This is an easy-to-wear, non-sweet …

Crème - L'Oreal Paris - True Match Super Blendable Compact Makeup

Feb/01/2012

This is my go-to foundation! I wear C1 most of the year and have C2 on hand for the summer months when I get a little more color. [C1 and C2 are often sold out at my local pharmacies and discount stores, so there are obviously lots of us fair/cool-toned women out there]

The great thing about this line is it's offered in shades of Neutral, Cool and Warm. Lots of choices especially …

Fragrances - TOCCA - Stella EDP

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/22/2011

I have a set of Tocca samplers that I've been working through. Stella is one of them. This is an eau de parfum that reminds me of Elizabeth Arden's Red Door.

And, like Red Door, Stella smells like a 1980s super-sweet power scent. If you love that loud, bold sweetness you'll probably enjoy Stella. I do not however. The predominant notes that just won't quit are …

Fragrances - Unlisted Brand - Unbreakable Bond

Oct/28/2011

I'm appreciative of a really good unisex fragrance. When I watched, earlier this year, the reality series Khloe & Lamar (Khloe Kardashian and husband b-baller Lamar Odom) I found it interesting that the two of them were taking very seriously the concept of creating a unisex fragrance and trying out several variations of notes before selecting what they both liked the most. They also …Read more
