  • Tova Signature Eau de Parfum Spray

    I so wanted and expected to love this. It has all of my favorite notes - lavender, sandalwood, bergamot... Unfortunately, one must buy it unsniffed from QVC. Many people seem to love this, but to me and on me it smelled just like the mosquito repellent I was using. I wasn't the only one who thought so - after I applied it in hopes that it would dry down to something I would like, my son came into the room and said "Mom, why are you wearing the bug spray? Do I have soccer tonight?" Maybe I just have really good quality bug spray...but sadly, this scent does not work for me.

    Eau de cologne, Bois des Iles

    Love, love, love these scents. Eau de Cologne is bright, fresh, feminine without being flowery. The neroli is uplifting - this is a great scent for tough days, job interviews, or stressful circumstances. The lasting power is not great - my only quibble with this scent - but it's easy to carry a small vial and re-apply. You'll WANT to spritz this often anyway! The Bois des Iles is a delightful, sandalwood-based scent that DOES last. It's a lovely scent for fall and winter. Neither scent is likely to trigger the scent-phobic among us either (my fragrance hating SO likes both!)

    Lancome Absolue Premium Bx Cream

    Great for dry winter skin

    I love this product in both the cream and oil free lotion. It sinks right in and doesn't feel heavy or greasy - yet my skin stays soft and fresh all day. It has really helped my winter-dry skin - it's expensive, but worth it for me.

    Save your money

    Generally, I like Dior products, but this cleanser was a disappointment. It does not do a good job of removing make-up and it leaves a greasy, filmy residue on my face no matter how much I rinse. Not only does it do a poor job of removing eye makeup, but it's also irritating to my eyes! I tried using it in the morning, when I prefer a mild cleanser, but every time I use it, I have the urge to wash my face afterwards - not the sensation you want from a cleanser. I bought it a few months ago, have used about a quarter of it, and will probably toss it soon. An expensive waste!

    The best you can buy

    As the owner of long but very fair eyelashes, I use mascara every day - and this one is the best. It never clumps, even after a couple of months of use. The black is a soft black, and both shades provide a natural-but-better look with a light application. However, you can also apply several coats for a more elaborate, evening look. I love the way this mascara defines individual lashes - for me, it's worth the money.

  • L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion

    L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion

    Pricy, but worth the indulgance

    You can find cheaper, effective body lotions, but I love this product. It has a truly pleasant, clean, relaxing scent, which makes it perfect for after an evening bath or shower. However, one of my favorite uses for this product is as a daytime lotion - it's a great base for almost any scent, especially warm, vanilliac, or oriental ones. It truly does wonders for dry skin, while not being so heavy that you feel greasy all day. With winter coming on, I'll be using it more and more. The soaps in this line are also delightful.
