Beauty Product Reviews
What's the hype?
This is the first product that I've ever tried out from OPI. I'm not amused. I have healthy, natural nails. Sometimes I use a base coat. I use Seche Vite top coat. I never use just ONE color, or brand, on my nails at a time. OPI's polish is ALWAYS the first to chip. The formula was thin and uneven. I really don't know what all the fuss is about. Maybe it is just my luck? I only have 3 OPI products. I love the colors. But, the quality is not worth the price tag.
Long lasting fragrance
I wanted to buy shampoo and conditioner that would nourish my hair naturally, so I bought this at the drugstore. I followed the directions on the back of the bottle for both. I leave the conditioner in my hair for about 5-8 minutes and it leaves my hair smelling great, and feeling great too. I let my hair air dry. Now that my hair is getting longer, this product could use a bit more volume control. I used to see this on the shelves everywhere, but now its getting scarce. After 2 bottles, I switched to a different product from this brand.
Better than Vaseline.
I'm a loyal customer to this product. I keep one with me at ALL times. One in my purse, one in my car, and one in my pocket, (if I have pockets. =P) After the shower, if I forget to use lotion on my face, sometimes my nose appears ashy. BAM. Then, I bust out with the Aquaphor. I primarily use it for my lips.
Doctors could not determine what caused an allergic reaction so, they suggested that I did not use ANY lip products with chemicals in them (i.e. Chapstick, Softlips, Carmex.) So I tried Vaseline. Then, I discovered Aquaphor. I like this product; the packaging is convenient. Pocket-size. It comes in a box of 2. Unlike Vaseline the product is not messy and greasy. I have used it for minor/major dry spots where lotion was not handy. Works just fine. No stains. Thick texture. Good stuff. Pretty pricey though, ~$7.00 US but, I can't see myself without it. I hope Aquaphor doesn't jack up the price. That would be very unfortunate.
A Must Have!
I cannot, I repeat, I CANNOT wait to purchase (or *cross my fingers*...get this as a gift) this perfume. I love it more than Gucci Flora. I never thought I would say that haha. Strong, intense, or even bold, floral smell. I apply all of my perfumes in the same way...one spray on one wrist. Rub wrists together. Then apply to carotid arteries. I have nothing bad to say about this perfume. I sampled it at the department store and received compliments on it throughout the entire day! I really like how Gucci changed things up with the bottle/packaging. It's gold+flashy. The purse size is also super cute too. (=
These sheets are especially handy when you don't have enough room in your purse (i.e. using a wristlet, or wearing a clutch for a night out.)
I have to carry the entire package with me because once I bust one of these puppies out, I am actually peer pressured to share them haha. No joke. The fellas like to use them too.
I don't have very oily skin, but like I mentioned earlier, they are very useful. I don't have to include any powder or tissues in my purse. I usually don't like Clean & Clear products, but I am very fond of this particular one. I gave this product one less star because I tried the generic CVS brand; they work just as well, for a significantly lesser price. Sorry, Johnson & Johnson.
Love at first whiff~
I originally bought this for my Mom for Mother's Day when it first released. I fell in love with it so much that I put it on my wishlist for my birthday...and Christmas!
I enjoy wearing this perfume at any time of the day. It works really well with my body chemistry. I spray it on one wrist, (at the pulse point.) I rub both wrists together and then use my wrists as an applicator, to use on my carotid arteries.
The smell is not over-powering (to me.) It <i>does</i> of course contain floral notes, which changes after a few hours. Sometimes the fragrance will linger into the next morning. (Yes, even after a shower!) I guess that is why I enjoy this perfume so much. If only Gucci could develop a smell that captures the smell of the last note. If you enjoy any of the other Gucci fragrances what came out in 2010-present, you will most-likely enjoy this one. Don't let the initial application keep you from giving it a chance. It really is a lovely smell!
