I am so thankful for Makeupalley. It was because of MUA that I decided to try Proactiv five years ago, and when it broke me out, it was because of reading reviews here that I decided to try just the repairing lotion, which cleared my skin up. After about four years I was growing tired of the lotion. The fact that you had to buy the entire system from Proactiv. I had been buying the lotion on …Read more

I love this body mist! I bought this for $2 at Payless (150 ml) and can't believe how much I love it. It is the perfect blend of blackberry and honey. Not too sweet, neither overpowering the other, but both detectable. I have searched for a good berry scent for years and can't believe I found the perfect one at Payless! The honey is beautiful too--this is what I expected, but …Read more

I had to say Yes, I would buy this again (even though I didn't buy it the first time). I am one who loves the scent of vanilla, but have never felt the need to own more than a couple. I've never smelled one that stood out too much from the rest. All very pleasant--some more or less than others--but still, it's just vanilla. THIS vanilla is different. I smell all the notes …Read more

I got this perfume, honestly, not expecting much. I tried Sweet Pea products years ago. Liked the lotion, hated the body mist--it was sickly sweet and nauseating. So I was very pleasantly surprised when I sprayed this on. Much, much nicer than the body mist. Delicately sweet fruity floral that, in my opinion, is much nicer than the majority of fruity florals. I am really loving this. …Read more

I've had my large sample of this fragrance for about 6 years, never bothering to sample it, assuming I wouldn't like it. Just tried it tonight and I really like it. Very pretty jasmine scent, lightly sweetened by a beautiful, but very subtle blood orange note. Perfect for summer and I would definitely buy this. And as for the review below that compares this to D&G Light Blue, I …Read more

This is a lovely creamy, tropical coconut scent. Salty sea air and sweet coconut, accompanied by light gardenia and the most delicious, light vanilla. Tiny bit of banana, but very well blended. Long lasting too. This is one of the few scents that just gets better and better as the day goes on. I couldn't keep my nose away from my skin. Absolutely delicious!

Oddly enough, I get nothing fruity or tropical in this. Soooo disappointed. All I've smelled is a musky, drugstore vanilla. Tenacious stufff too. Still hanging on, ten hours later, even after I tried to scrub it off. My six year old said I smelled really good though.

This product is awful! I found a container of this at T.J. Maxx for about $5 and was taken in by the cute packaging (it reminded me of LUSH). So I bought this unsniffed. The packaging is made to ensure that you can't open it before you buy it, and now I know why. Got to my car and opened my new body butter and whoooa, yuck! Smells like mint flavored Pepto Bismol. Really nasty, but I …Read more
