  • Stella McCartney Stella

    This has a modern citrusy rose scent. It lasts all day and stays true. I love it when I first put it on, but as it develops, the citrus fades a bit on me and I am left with a mature slightly sweet rosy fragrance (it does not do that on everyone--I like it better on some of my friends). I am not a perfume person. This is not my favorite, but I did buy it and use it. If you like roses you will absolutely love this.

  • Estee Lauder Beautiful Sheer Eau de Parfum Spray
    8.0

    Estee Lauder Beautiful Sheer Eau de Parfum Spray

    pretty floral, the fragrance of 1000 flowers

    I do not care for many perfumes. If I wanted a floral perfume, this is the one I would choose. It is accurately described as the fragrance of 1000 flowers. It is reasonably priced and lasts all day. I like the sheer version because it is lighter than the original, and I do not like when my fragrance enters a room before me. I like it when someone close to me is drawn closer when they notice my fragrance. This is light enough to wear anywear and does not bother my allergies. The downside is that a lot of women wear "Beautiful". It is not unique.

  • CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

    CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser

    Perfect for sensitive skin

    This is an excellent cleanser for dry, sensitive skin. It cleans and rinses thoroughly and is fragrance-free (no noticable scent either). It makes the skin feel clean but not tight. It is reasonably priced. It could contain some antioxidants and do a better job at removing makeup, but again a great choice for sensitive, irritated, or allergy prone skin.

  • Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Cream
    4.0

    Clinique Aromatics Elixir Body Cream

    Great cream, did not care for the sharp smell

    This is difficult for me to rate. The body cream is rich, luxurious, and very moisturizing. The fragrance is long lasting. Unfortunately I really do not like the scent at all. It is a very pungeunt, herbal, piney, lavendar fragrance. It is a strong scent, so I would recommend trying it on and letting and waiting several hours for the fragrance to settle before you decide to buy it.

  • Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia Eau de Parfum Spray
    7.0

    Estee Lauder Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia Eau de Parfum Spray

    Heavy, lasting pure scent of gardenia and tuberose

    I got this as a sample and to be honest have terrible allergies and do not like many perfumes. This one did not bother my particular allergies and overall was pleasant. It had a heavy pure scent of tuberose and gardenia. It was lovely, but a little too mature and to strong for my preference. I planned to continue to use the sample from time to time, but my daughter did not like it at all on me. This is a quality perfume--it lasted all day. It is worth the money if you are into florals.

  • H2O+ Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment

    Initially this felt like a cool refreshing light moisturizing gel. It was hydrating in my dry areas and did not cause acne in my t-zone. It is highly fragranced (it smells refreshing) and contains lavender which I believe made it irritate my skin. If it did not irritate my skin and come in a jar which is unsanitary, I would like it a lot.

  • H2O+ Sea Salt Body Wash
    5.0

    H2O+ Sea Salt Body Wash

    Invigorating, great fragrance, not for sensitive skin.

    This has a great refreshing fragrance and is tingly and invigorating, but whatever ingredients do this also irritate my skin so I cannot use it often on my sensitive skin and would probably not use is regularly on any skin. It is nice once in awhile. It is not expensive, but not cheap either for really an average body wash with a great fragrance and some issues.

  • H2O+ Hydrating Body Gloss

    I tried this looking for a replacement for Paula's Choice dry oil spray which was amazing and outstanding, but sadly discontinued (it was more moisturizing, absorbed quickly, sprayed even upsidedown, and was fragrance free, but had a beautiful slight natural vanilla essence as it was addes for skin benefits). This product absorbs well and does not stain clothes. It did not cause acne, but does irritate my sensitive skin on occasion. It is freshly fragranced, candula I think--I like it, but definately try it before buying becaue everyones nose it different. The sprayer is awkward because you have to hold it upright to spray your legs. It did not moisturize as well as Paula's Choice--I need to use moisurizer on top of it. I would only buy it again for the fragrance.

  • Clinique Superdefense Triple Action Moisturizer SPF 25
    6.0

    Clinique Superdefense Triple Action Moisturizer SPF 25

    Good product, inappropriate container

    This would hands down be my favorite product if it were not for the container. It compromises the great antioxidants and other beneficial ingredients due to the jar packaging. Jars also are condusive to bacteria growth (yuck!) and it is messy and gets under my long nails. I do use and welcome it when I get small samples in a bonus pack because it gets used up before the container becomes an issue. I used the dry/comb formula. It was not greasy, absorbed quickly, felt amazingly rich, did not irritate my very sensitive skin, is fragrance free, did not cause acne or look oily on my t-zone, moisturized my dry skin well, even in the winter. I like the high spf, although I put on regular sunscreen (a lot) under all of my makeup-you need more than most people generally apply with their makeup or moisturizers. This would my definite first choice for an antioxidant rich moisturizer for daytime use if not for the jar issue--I would have given it an 11.

  • Clinique Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer
    10.0

    Clinique Continuous Rescue Antioxidant Moisturizer

    My moisturizer of choice for sensitive combo skin!

    I love the rich smooth texture of this moisturizer. It is fragrance free and does not irritate even hypersensitive skin (mine). It absorbs well, comes in an tube that keeps it airtight as to not compromise the high concentration of top quality antioxidants in this moisturizer. It is also much more sanitary and less messy for those of us with long nails. The dry combination formula kept my dry cheeks moisturized this winter, yet did not make my oily areas greasy or break out. The price is reasonable. This is my moisturizer of choice! It is very hard to find a quality product that works for combo skin that is also suitable for highly sensitive skin (most sensitive skin products are for very dry skin and cause acne for me & sometimes even irriate my skin).
