I think I may have finally found my HG foundation. I have been using Laura Mercier's oil-free tinted moisturizer, but it is a little heavier than I'd like, especially for summer. Also, I've noticed that it tends to ball up a little and I have to brush off the little flaky pieces that end up at the edge of my face. Then I tried this product, I use the "Sheer Latte" …Read more

Mar/20/2007

I haven't written a review in a long time but I had to share the word about this product from L'Occitane. It is a very simple mask. Goes on as a thick, clear gel. I have combination skin and left it on for 5-10 minutes. Used it every other day for a week and noticed my skin looking fresher, smoother, and clearer even after just a week of use. I found it to be gentle enough to use …Read more

Wow, I'm surprised by all the bad reviews this fragrance is getting. I guess I'm in the minority because I love this one! I sniffed all the Gourmande fragrances and this one was my favorite. Tried it on and by the time I got home, realized that this was going on my wish-list.

I agree that it is pricey for not being eau de parfum, but it is still pretty long-lasting on me. …

Lotions/ Creams - Bath & Body Works - Bath and Body Works Pure Simplicity salt toning body balm

I actually had to take a shower after applying this stuff and wearing for an hour. My husband asked what I was wearing, and was it a "mask" that I would be washing off! The texture is nice, but the fragrance is overwhelming and way stinky. I smell a powdery cucumber fragrance and it gave a headache! I think I paid $10 for this jar, but it got tossed in the trash this morning.

I love corals for the summer and this one is fabulous! It is very close to "Year of the Dragon" from OPI's Japanese collection, a shade that is discontinued, and so hard to find. (Ebay sells for around $20/bottle!)

The color goes perfectly with tan/olive skin, and it goes with most of the colors I wear during the summer. In fact, the only color I wouldn't wear …

Living in Colorado for the last six years, I am always on the lookout for a good moisturizer with SPF protection. I received a sample of this, and ended up purchasing the full sized version after trying the sample out.

I agree with previous reviews - that it does leave an oily/shiny residue, but I find that when I pair it with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer, the shinyness …

This is a bright coral pink/red from the Far East collection. Like a cross between Confucious says Coral and Far East Pink. Looks excellent on my olive tan toes, it looks more pink than orange.

This is truly only for people who like Real ginger. Ingredients are Canola Oil, Beeswax, Lecithin, Fresh Ginger, Coconut OIl, Mango Oil, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Propolis, L-Lysine and Royal Jelly. Love the color of the tube and the unique fragrance. Taste is mild, actually doesn't taste like much to me. Mango is hard to detect as the ginger overpowers it, but it does impart a bit of …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Le Couvent des Minimes - Repairing Hand Cream - Honey and Shea

I really like this product. I am pretty loyal to L'Occitane's Shea Butter hand cream, but decided to give this stuff a try. It is packaged very similar to L'Occitane, with a metallic plastic tube (unlike L'Occitane's metal tube). The consistency is almost exactly like L'Occitane's but the fragrance is a light honey - just the right amount of sweetness for me. …Read more

I just got this as part of a 3-piece set, the day after V-day, for 50% off. Paid $18 for fullsize lotion, body-wash and a half-size (4 oz) scrub. Am LOVING it - the cocoa fragrance is subtle. Smells delicious out of the bottle, dries down to a fresh and subtle boy-scent. My only peeve with the lotion is that the pump only squirts out a small amount at time. Packaging is cute, and I will …Read more
