    Robert Piguet Fracas Perfume

    Fracas - by Robert Piguet

    I'm a bit surprised at some of the negative reviews. Tihs is a timeless fragrance - - for those of you who like jasmine scents. To me, this is an "evening" scent. Very rich. Classy. I often get compliments when I wear this. If you are in a humid place, a small spritz is all you need. The scent lasts for a long time. This has been around for a very long time and no wonder, the fragrance is indeed, beautiful. I agree that the fragrance is quite intoxicating - but does not have the heavy feeling you get - like when you inhale Opium by Yves Saint Laurent or Poison by Christian Dior.

  • The Body Shop Olive Body Scrub

    The Body Shop Olive Body Scrub

    The Body Shop Olive Body Scrub

    As I've said earlier, I'm a member of The Body Shop [you get discouns too]. I have the Shea Butter scrub and I have this Olive Exfoliant Corporal - Body Scrub. I LOVE the Body Shop because most of their products are made in the UK. I always see where the product is made for quality purposes. Olea Europaea Fruit Oil is the 3rd ingredient - - the benefits of olives. The scrub is rough yet gentle enough so that it will not damage your skin [like walnut shells].... Unlike the Shea butter scrub though, you still need to put on body lotion after you shower as it does not contain softening ingredients. Also, if you are allergic to parabens, in this particular product, it does contain methlparaben an dpropylparaben - - but truly it is at the bottom of the list...

  • Arbonne Natural Radiance Mineral Powder Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen

    I got a few of these because my friend is an Arbonne consultant. Okay - their Re9 skincare works and you see the results. BUT THEIR MINERAL POWDER - thumbs down. I used the kabuki brush given to me - I swirled the product on my face. it started itching like crazy!!! I ahd to wash it off and rubbed ice on my face to calm it down. Ugh. So...the next day.... i thought I'd give it another go - maybe I was just having a 'sensitive" day.... this time, my skin itched but ony for a little bit. However, this powder adds a very strange unnatural sheeon on your face. Creepy.... sorry.... I'll return to Jane Iredale or Bare Minerals...

  • Bulgari BVLGARI Rose Essentielle Eau de Parfum Spray

    Ahhhh - I'm on my FOURTH bottle of this glorious stuff. I have many rose perfumes from other makers but this ROCKS. Every time I wear this, people would stop me and say, what are you wearing. It smells soo good. If you love rose perfume, this is the one. To add zing to this, I dab on essential oil of rose on my cleavage, behind my eaers and on the back of my knees. Then I spritz the perfrume on. The body lotion by Bulgari - Rose Essentielle is awesome as well. I layer it with the perfrum. It is a classy perfrum... not to heavy and it lasts. Bulgari is known for making fine jewelry. You should try all of the Bulgari perfrums - I collect them and they are indeed fabulous.

  • Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream

    Elemis Pro Collagen Marine Cream

    Elemis Pro Marine Colalge

    Had a "spa"ntastic time at the Elemis Spa in a pricey hotel in Vegas. Though the facial treatments made my skin smoother, glowing after the facial. i bought this cream along with the little capsules Elemis also sells. Didn't work for me. I used the entire jar [lasts about 2 months if you only use this at night] and I saw no visible results. Very pricey.... I must admit that the cheaper drug store brands show more visible results......

    Fusion Beauty Lift Fusion

    I knew something was up when I bought this on sale I believe at Nordstroms a year ago. No results. The lotion was orange and had little smell which is a plus - but there were no results. Not happy.

  • Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer
    6.0

    Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

    Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer

    I trust most of Neutrogena's skin care products because they work. I got this through Total Beauty and I'm almost halfway through the tube.....I have deep wrinklers between my eyebrows and after 2 weeks of nightly use, the lines appear softer. the scent is light. BUT, becasue this is an OTC product, it is not as strong as the ones available by prescription. so... I started to supllement this with the Rapid Wrinkler Repair Serum AND with the Neutrgena Ageless Intensives Deep Wrinkle Moisture - Night. Maybe a tad too much? But it seems to be working. I don't use the Intensives Deep Wrinkler Moisture every night - just 3x a week. Also, because this contains Retinol, in the morning, users should use a high SPF suncscreen or sunblock.

  • Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    Jergens Natural Glow Revitalizing Daily Moisturizer

    Jergens Natural Glow Body Moisturizer

    This product is a mainstay. Okay - so I do switch from Clarins [they also make FABULOUS self-tanners], Roche-Posay and L"Oreal Sublime, I also go back to this product because there is HARDLY any smell! After a few hours, the color on your skin looks quite natural and does not have that orangey-bronzy fake tan look. It moisturizes well too. EXFOLIATE your body with a scrub or a washcloth first before you apply this product to avoid streaking. This I'm sure will be, ir not already, a classic.

  • The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

    The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

    The Body Shop Shea Body Scrub

    I'm a member of the Body Shop and I got this because it was on sale last spring. GREAT PRODUCT. I like the fact that this compay support Comunity Fair Trade. This product is great if: 1) You have dry skin; 2) Sensitive skin 3) Body needs exfoliation. I also use this when I'm in a hurry - because it's so concentrated that you do not need to put on anymore body lotion after you shower. i paid this with the Body Shop Shower Cream. Rest assured that most of their products are organic and contains no parabens.

  • Arbonne Makeup Primer
    8.0

    Arbonne Makeup Primer

    ARbonne Makeup Primer

    I have this product along with many other high-end "primers." It's very light but during the summer, I find it a bit greasy and so I save this product for fall/winter use. it does plump up the skin; makeup glies smoothly.. However, BEWARD of the other products you palce BEFORE you put on this primer. This does not go well with some moisturizers - it started to cake up and became all gummy on my skin. Best is to use a serum first, then if your skin is dry, moisturizer then this primer.
