Me Likee (and one NO likee) plus Bliss, Spa Look and Ulta discount codes

Bliss Lemon & Sage Body Butter and Soapy Suds- Gurgle..... oh sorry, that was the sound of me drooling. I cannot get enough of this scent! A zingy citrus balanced by a very subtle earthiness. Bliss indeed! The Soapy Suds leave your skin feeling extremely clean but not at all dried out. It feels quite nourishing, actually. I had someone tell me that if you have the body attachment for a Clarisonic and use this that afterwards your skin feels like satin.

The body butter is downright decadent in it's richness, easy to see why this is the signature lotion of Bliss's world famous spas. It softens even the roughest of skin without feeling greasy and it absorbs quickly leaving you baby butt soft.

Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream 0.5oz Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream 0.5oz
Premier Cru Eye Cream is the ultimate anti-aging eye treatment for immediate and long-lasting visible results. Inspired by the original anti-aging powerhouse, Premier Cru Face Cream, this new, highly active formula targets the delicate eye area to revitalize and renew skin for transformational results. This eye cream provides patented active anti-aging ingredients from the vine and effective science to combat skin aging.

Caudalie Premier Cru The Eye Cream- it's nice to know that it's so easy to pretend for a few minutes that I'm rich. I'll never join The Junior League or eat at The Palm, but I can pat this heavenly nectar around my eyes and know that though I may be po', I can use those rich beeotches eye cream. (I just realized how funny it is that I'm being somewhat vulgar in my review of a $95 eye cream.) I've raved about this brand before, and while pricey, their products are WORTH IT. Whe you think about it, with eye cream a little goes a long way. This one is really rich, so I tend to either only use it at night or if it's a day I don't plan on using eye makeup. It has light reflecting properties that brighten the eye area and reduce the appearance of dark circles while the cream works long term benefits that plump up the eye area, reducing the cause of dark circles. It fills out fine lines and when I'm being all sinusy and allergy ridden, it's very soothing.
The official explanation is :

How it Works

This rich formula has a laundry list of actives, all of which play a unique role. Grapevine Resveratrol, which is recognized by Harvard University as the best anti-aging molecule, extends cellular life-span by 160% and activates collegian production to smooth wrinkles. Grape-seed Polyphenols, the most powerful antioxidant in the plant kingdom blocks 100% of free radicals helps maintain natural hyaluronic acid. Vinolevure, Caudalie's proprietary molecule, holds more than 100 times its volume in water, which is how it keeps skin plump and supple. Grape-seed oil nourishes along with Omega-6 fatty acids and vitamin E while tetrapeptides and caffeine spur microcirculation to decrease puffiness and minimize dark circles. Perhaps most noticeably, light-diffusing particles make the under eye area appear instantly brighter.

Fan Di Fendi Eau de Parfum- Notes: tangerine, peppercorns (pink), pear, blackcurrant accord, jasmine, rose, tuberose, leather, patchouli.
WOW!!!!! Manages to be sophisticated yet sexy and dark without being heavy. There was never a "hmmm, what do I think of this?", it was an immediate "holy smokes, this is awesome!" A spicy and mature scent (not old lady mature, but adult mature). Great staying power without hitting people over the head. I wore one of my husband's shirts on the same day I used this perfume one day and he said he just wanted to carry the shirt around in his pocket and sniff it all day :-) I'm wearing it today and a co-worker stopped me in the hall to compliment the scent. She was positively gushing over it so I offered to write the name down for her. Her response? "GOD no! If I wore that my husband would want to have sex with me!" HAHAHAHAHAHA!

CLEAN - Warm Cotton
No Likee -Clean Warm Cotton
Well, I guess saying I don't like it is a bit of an oversimplification. It's not that I DISLIKE it, it's just that it smells EXACTLY like walking into a laundromat. I do like quite a few unconventional fragrances, but I also don't wanna smell like the Spin N Fold either. It's just a weird thing to smell all day. One instance where it IS wonderful. If you reek. It's like Febreze for people. I had a shirt that got left in the drier damp too long and I didn't realize it until I'd already left the house and was at work. I had some of this in my purse and I went from smelling musty to smelling like, well, a laundromat. But frankly, Febreze is a lot cheaper. It's Febreze for people who are too snooty to buy canned clothing fresheners!
