Fragrances - CHANEL - No 5 Eau Premiere

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/23/2014

Up until recently I've always had this strange love/hate relationship with Chanel No. 5. On me, most of my life it always smelled just wee bit like, well, melted plastic. I guess as I've gotten older and my body chemistry has changed its smell quite so bad, actually a bit like lemon custard on its way to dry down, although they say technically call it a floral fragrance. .. so when I …Read more

Styling Products - Paul Mitchell - Thicken Up Styling Liquid

Jun/04/2013

I like this stuff a lot. Thing is though I like to use it when I just let my hair air dry. When I use the blow dryer and brush... static and fly away's like nobody's business. I don't know why. My hair is very fine and thin. It does give it body and shine and smells really nice, but I just can't use a brush on it during drying or afterwards. Weird. A little goes a long way …Read more

Fragrances - Victoria's Secret - Breathless

Feb/09/2013

Seen this fragrance on here among other sites and with so many fabulous reviews and found this pretty cheap on eBay I thought I'd throw caution along with a few $$ to the wind. It's OK. It doesn't last very long unless you spray it on clothing. It's like a watered down version of the original JLo Glow. Glow was a fragrance staple of mine when it first came out, which at that …Read more

Fragrances - Aquolina - Pink Sugar Eau de Toilette

Jan/27/2013

Lots of people seem to feel this is kind of a little girl-ish perfume. Maybe it is. All I know is I like it. And I am not by any means a fan of sweety sweet foody scents, this being one of the very rare exceptions. As soon as I tried it on the very first time it was just so warm and inviting. It reminded me of the summertime, and carnivals, and so I wear it in the winter to get me excited for the …Read more

Fragrances - ORIGINS - Ginger Essence

Jan/25/2013

Ok on my ongoing quest for a new signature scent these past several months I came across a perfume personality test. Corny I know. This perfume was the first one listed. I've never heard of it before. So while out I dropped by the cosmetic counter and had the girl spritzed my wrists. Ummm... Whoa! Immediately I was brought to memories of my dentist's office! Antiseptic. What a let down …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Trader Joe's - Coconut Body Butter

Jan/20/2013

This is a great body butter as far as I'm concerned. Very moisturizing. You really can't beat it for the price. The smell is a little strong. A little too strong for me to smell natural. That had worried me a little as I didn't want it to clash with any of my perfumes, however surprisingly, I found the scent to nearly disappear in about 15/20 minutes after application, leaving …Read more

Fragrances - Burberry - Brit

Years ago I tried Brit and was put off so badly I never tired any other Burberry fragrance for years. It smelled just like Barbarsol Lime Shaving Cream. Ack! So after reading reviews here I thought I'd give it another try. To my surprise everything has changed. Maybe its my hormones. Who knows but I found the Burberry's very welcoming. I've decided hands down Burberry Sheer will be …Read more

I almost picked this up on a whim at t.j. maxx because of the price. Did a quick search of reviews and it seemed it wouldn't be a complete loss if even it wasn't a favorite, but then some higher power stopped me. I went to Macys to test drive it first and than goodness I did. My grandmother's cedar closet in the attic. That's it. That's all it smelled like with my …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - No Brand (DIY or homemade) - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (All brands)

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jan/18/2013

I so wanted to jump on the coconut oil bandwagon. As the last reviewer had stated I'm under impressed. My hair, though it didn't dry it out just left it just kind of dull. As a body moisturizer, I see no difference. Odd because my hair and skin is primarily oily to begin with. I do like it so far on my face and have used to remove make up. Someone said it taste great on toast and it …Read more

Jan/15/2013

I love love love this perfume SO MUCH but alas the staying power is so terribly weak I can never really bring myself to justify the price of it. Every now and again I am able to win it at a semi affordable price on eBay. I've even tried layering it.... :/ just doesn't last long enough for the high price tag. I'll purchase again just because I love scent but to keep it around …Read more
