All of Aftelier's fragrances are interesting but some are more accessible to a broader range of tastes than others. This one would likely appeal both to those who like sweeter simpler scents and those who like something more sophisticated.

I don't sense the individual components at all but instead something that reminds me a little of green tea, a little of jasmine but …

There is soap in it. That's this -- organic potassium cocoate (saponified coconut oil).

I got a small sample and loved it! Might be drying for some. Smells (and tastes -- got some on my lip!:)) wonderful. Good cleansing and effect on skin. So expensive I'm not sure if I'd order it, as I'm not sure how it will be longterm.

Here are complete …

Good product and great price -- especially the samples!!

For $1.25-1.49 you get containers so full the powder explodes out if you're not careful. I tried the Lightly Neutral, which was a little too dark and orangey for me, so am going back to try Fairly Neutral and Sand. (First is lighter and other is warmer/yellower.) The powder foundation seems as good as any I've …

Great, small independent company which makes clean, simple, Vegan products! They started on Etsy, and really deserve to be better known.

It can be annoying when buying products online to not know exactly how the color, not to mention the quality, is going to be. But some of the small online businesses are so good, responsible and generous that they make it not only easy, it's …

I use the shampoo and conditioner together and it makes my hair shiny, and it looks and feels healthy. If you are one of those people who have a hard time finding a shampoo that works for you -- sensitive scalp, or damage, this is a great hair treatment -- that you can use every day, and inexpensive compared to salon brands, which don't work for me. It's gentle on hair because no SLS …Read more

I posted the ingredients up above (which I got from Amazon) and it's not exactly ALL natural:/ It looks like it has plenty of chemicals to break you out, though you'd have to look them up, or find out for yourself whether these do.

Even if a product were all natural, you could get breakouts from it. A lot of people apparently get breakouts from coconut oil, for instance. …

LOVE this! From looking at the reviews, this one's all over the place in the ratings, kind of a love/hate thing, and I think it's because it's so different.

First, there's the scent -- which I love -- but you should smell it first and make sure you do, too! Next, when you try it on, you'll see it's called translucent for a reason. It's not like …

You can find an almost exact dupe in revlon colorstay 626 Canyon (very slightly warmer but a LOT cheaper and longer lasting.)

This is an ok lipstick. Lasts as long as most, nice color, slightly grainy texture. The packaging is really pretty but not worth the price -- around $30.

Edited: I had to up it to 4 lippies because I wear it so much! It really is a great color. I …

Love this! It is great for the eyeliner-impaired:) I could never use anything except soft, smudgy crayon liners because that was the look i was going to get no matter how I tried -- smudgy. This is like using a felt pen, so you use the same skills and can get the finest lines -- all the way into the corner if you want. It is buildable so a heavier line is doable but that isn't the look …Read more
