Fragrances - Van Cleef & Arpels - Gardenia Petale Eau de Parfum

This does not smell like the gardenia flower nor is it a close (or good) rendition of the scent.
The top green/bergamont/citrusy notes are alright.
There is a beautiful jasmine that flows throughout the entire composition but is drowning in the heavy and nauseating chemically musky/floral base.
Try Chanel Gardenia.

I stopped buying lip products containing polybutene (and some other stuff) after i realized that's plastic... and I don't want to be eating plastic... of any form.
I try to only buy personal care products made from stuff that sounds like it came off a tree or out of the ground.
Lip products for me, must be made from natural ingredients cause i'm eating it in, whether i …

I LOVE these products because they don't contain any silicones, plastics, and fillers. I have combo skin that tends to breakout from too much silicone-packed products.
This concealer is def not high coverage if u're looking for stage thick makeup. But it melts into my skin like a buttery dream and gives the most beautiful dewy glow!
It's also a plus that the SPF are the …

This is my FAVORITE liquid foundation PERIOD! You know that perfectly dewy, fresh, and glowy skin you see in magazines? This foundation makes my skin look like that!

I always thought it was because of photoshop, but you can come pretty close with a foundation that works for you. And this really does blend into the skin like a dream as the other reviewers have suggested …

I LOVE sugar and salt scrubs, but I HATE this product! As with all the other complaints, this product leaves behind the most nasty grime! I wouldn't even call the leftover grime 'oily' because oil can be dissolve off with cleanser or soap. But no matter what cleanser or soap I used to wash this stuff off, it wouldn't come off!!! I had to literally scrap this layer of grime off …Read more

This cleanser does not live up to the advertisements. The smell is medicinal/herbal, but I don't mind. Cleansing wise, I feel that it's not cleansing well (nonetheless remove makeup), it's rather watery/diluted, and in general, is not an over-performer in the cleanser department for me. The price was not bad and I actually really liked the squeezable bottle as well, but that's …Read more

Wonderful brow powder!!! I LOVE IT!
This powder is perfectly pigmented to make my brows look natural. It comes with a waxy pomade too but I don't use that part. The tiny brush is pretty handy too. Though the tweezer that came with the compact was terrible so i threw it away. It's not cheap, but this little compact will last you yeeears!

This did nothing it claims to do. Mediocre product at best. Though it has a nice gel consistency, and it does sort of feel re-freshening for a few minutes right after i put it on, but hey, water-based product feel like that anyways. So overall, this product was utterly useless.
I prefer products that deliver effective and noticeable results. For an eye treatment that actually REVIVES, try …

LOVE this blush!! The perfect blend of 3 colors in a beautiful compact. The coordinating colors is especially useful for ppl like me who aren't very creative with colors and such.
Anyways Posh comes with 2 matte blushes(pinky/peach and coral/pink/peach?) and a shimmery/pearly light pink. These colors really brighten up my face and it makes me happy just by looking at these colors!! And …

LOVE Juice Beauty products, especially these serums! I love the organic blend of plant extracts and that REAL fruit smell. I've used a few hydroxy acid products over the years, and this is probably one of the best I've tried... effective yet gentle, well comparatively. Personally I love acidic products, however if u have sensitive skin it may not be for you. The price ain't cheap …Read more
