libbykins from TotalBeauty.com: "This was an impulse buy that definitely left me with buyer's regret! A little shimmer, average moisturizer, decent smell, the promise of firming and pheromones. At $34, I won't be buying this again."
hamolia from TotalBeauty.com: "Just a regular body cream, not worth the big price. It does give a slight impression of firming ... and it also has a fruity, delicious smell but that is about it. The firming sensation is only when freshly applied, it doesn't last."
