I was scared they had discontinued this product. I got a couple tubes on clearance from Kohls a few months ago and it had disappeared off the website but as of today it's back!
It's great sun protection and an excellent moisturizer and cheap to boot. Unless you have super oily skin, try it...you'll love it.

Before purchasing I thoroughly researched the differences between shade #1 and #2 and am very glad I chose #2.
First of all, shade #1 was the first one YSL put out so it was sort of a generic color in the sense that it was supposed to appeal to a wide range of skin tones hence the color "Luminous Radiance". It is quite pink. I am very pale and am very thankful to the other MUA …

Well I have to say I like the product but, like so many other reviewers, find the gimmicky brush applicator to be a pain...so I just removed it.
***Please note the brush top piece actually pops off...you do *not* have to actually cut off the brush bristles as some reviewers have...just pull a bit hard and wallah...the brush piece will come off the bottle.
In terms of the actual …

I was left unimpressed. It smells an awful lot like Subtil by Salvatore Ferragamo in the red bottle and box for clarity's sake. Lots of candied cherry blossom that kind of goes nowhere...

I have this in the eau de parfum spray and it packs a punch...very sexy...though I've worn it to work a couple just b/c I can. ;) Smells like a old-fashioned bombshell fragrance w/ powdery rose and tobacco which gives it the oomph in my opinion...very distinct...but not an old lady perfume.

This one melts on my skin beautifully...gardenia and tuberose with a certain creaminess as described by other reviewers and maybe a hint of coconut...I get compliments consistently when I wear it. If you dislike gardenia and/or tuberose however this will probably not become your favorite as previous reviewers have found.

Very well done fragrance...one of the best of Bond. Smells like cherry blossoms over wood to me...nicely blended. It doesn't compel me to own a full bottle but I can see how it is loved.

Somewhat forgettable sadly and don't blink or you might miss it as the staying power is poor. A definite aquatic note with sort of a Calvin Klein Escape thing going on...although that fragrance, if memory serves correct, lasted and lasted...spray this and inhale fast b/c then it's gone with the wind... ;)

A beautiful rose fragrance. I've seen it listed as unisex but it's quite sweet/floral to me so not sure how many males would go for it. This is one of Bonds best fragrances and does well layered w/ their others such as Bryant Park too.

Bryant Park is lovely...one of the best Bonds I think. I'm not terribly good at describing fragrances but I know there is patchouli and raspberry maybe. The scent wears well throughout the day and has a good base notes finish too.
