Very nice perfume that disappears in about five minutes on me. It really is a very subtle, polished, clean smelling perfume with no floral/spicy/musky notes of a typical perfume. But it is so subtle that it fades into nothingness very fast on me even if it pack it on. This was a generous sample and I wont be purchasing the full size.

I have this in the shade candy shimmer and it makes my lips look fantastic.

Unfortunately, I am sensitive to some ingredient. I wore it for about 2 hours and my lips were tingling, stinging, the skin around my mouth was itching.

But for those without sensitive skin, this makes lips look a natural pink, plump, healthy and sort of glow. Its worth the price if you are not …

Fantastic lip gloss. Sort of a BB cream for lips. Makes lips soft, smooths out lip lines, gives a pretty shine and a little color. It has 2% peppermint oil in it so its supposed to freshen breath although I dont see how. I would suggest applying it about 10 minutes before going out because the shine settles down a bit and looks more subtle and nicer. Lasting power is not great but I have not …Read more

The pros - This powder is gorgeous and an instant brightener for the face. It does not look cakey or ashy even if applied liberally with the puff. And the color somehow adjusts and just makes the face glow. It smells gorgeous, packaging is good (its a loose powder, it is going to be messy). It does not dry out my very dry skin.

The only con - I have super sensitive skin and I just …

Absolutely great body lotion. In general, I love Nivea products and this one is no different. My skin was looking dry and awful in the winter. I have been using this with and an Olay body wash. The improvement is noticable, my skin is smooth. It absorbs fast, is non greasy. The pump is really convenient and non messy. The only thing I wish is the smell was a little nicer, more floral or non …Read more

This is a cute,pretty product to have. It tastes good, doesnt dry out my lips. But it doesnt make my lips as smooth as a boring homemade 'sugar + olive oil' scrub does, which is basically the purpose of a scrub. The sugar does cooagulate, it is messy. I dont see myself repurchasing it, I wont need to for a long time anyways.

My dry, sensitive skin could not tolerate this toner. In general I dont use a toner, but I figured this was a unique toner with all its ingredients. Unfortunately, it irritated my skin and bumps appeared almost immediately when I tested it.
Texture wise, its milky, thinnish and absorbs easily,
I like the fact that she gives out samples, and explains each ingredient.
So three …

Absolutely gorgeous scent that lingers for some time. Great lather and great moisturizing, and never too drying or too oily. The touch of happiness scent is stronger if you prefer that, this one is slightly more subtle but this entire line is a winner.
