Celebrity Favorite Scents...

A signature scent...almost everyone has one. You know what I'm talking about you smell a certain fragrance and you instantly think of someone whether it be your mom, a best freind or a guy.  For example anytime I smell CoCo Channel I instantly think of my BFF :) Well celebrities have signature scents too...and I'm not just talking about their own lines of fragrance I'm talking about their everyday go to scent when they want to feel sexy.

Sure some may be their own line of perfume like Kimora Lee Simmons, she loves her own Baby Phat Seductive Goddess, she says " For the holidays, I like having a fragrance that has a little weight to it, and this one has a bite- it's a very exotic and spicy scent, and my very own creation."

Victoria Secret supermodel Marisa Miller loves Victoria's Secret Love Rocks Eau de Parfum, Marrisa says "It's the perfect holiday fragrance because it has a rocker edge with a fruity floral scent to it, which makes it feel sexy and feminine to me."

Gossip Girl's Jessica Szohr claims Stella McCartney's StellaNude fragrance as her favorite. She said "It's one of my absolute favorites that I wear all the time. Please always tell me how good I smell when I have it on."

Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser Review

As much as I hate to admit it I have really been struggling with my skin lately. I have oily/combination skin and just haven't been able to control breakouts ...and I'm 27 years old!! (well 28 next week..but who's counting) I have tried alot of different face washes lately, Cetafil...worked pretty good but once colder weather hit it was a little drying on my skin and didn't help fight the breakouts as well as in the summer with combination of the summer sun, then I tried Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash...which really dried out my skin leaving it looking dull and still not preventing breakouts. So after all that nothing has really given me the results I was looking for...results similar to when I was using Proactiv. The only reason I haven't gone back to Proactiv is the cost I want a great cleanser at a low I really asking for too much?

Well Biore doesn't think so! I was on a mission to find the perfect face wash so I did some research on which were the top ranked. I kept coming across Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser so I finally decided to try it out. WOW am I glad I did!! Not only did it clear up a mild breakout I had within days it prevents them from coming back!! My face hasn't broken out since I started using it on November 30th! That even includes that "special time of the month" when I am always prone to breakouts and I understand why they call it "Ice" Cleanser it's because of the cool fresh feeling after washing your face so it's great wake up in the morning especially for me because I am NOT a morning person. I would definitely recommend this cleanser to anyone like me who is struggling with their skin!

Biore Blemish Fighting Ice Cleanser has won the ALLURE Beauty Award for Best Face Wash 2008 & 2009! The bottle also claims to work 68% better than ProActiv.

Here is what Biore has to say about their product...

Key to Keeping Skin Healthy and Hydrated...

" Everyone remembers to moisturize morning and night, but the key to maintaining healthy hydrated skin is what happens in between. Keep to-go-sized body lotions at work and in your purse so you can apply lotion throughout the day. At home, keep lotion in your nightstand drawer where it'll be handy for moisturizing elbows and heels before sleep."
