Rose Absolue by Annick Goutal
Rose Absolute is a fragrance presented in 1984, made in a floral rhythm from six kinds of rose. Seductive bouquet dazes with scents of rose de Mai, Turkish rose, Bulgarian rose, Damask rose, Egyptian and Moroccan as well. Intensive and powdery, it evokes memories of the walks along the rose gardens. It is available as 50 and 100 ml edp. The new, pink ribbon edition was launched in 2008, contributing donations for the American breast cancer foundation. It is identical to the 1984 edition, available as 50 ml edt. 30 % of the price goes to the foundation. (Source: fragrantica.com)

This is some kind of Rose bomb. You don't need much to smell lovely all day long. It's not a very light rose scent, probably because of the mixture of he various types of roses you get a balanced elegant scent that lasts long. It's ideal for both summer and winter. I got the 100ml version.

Nail polish remover - Kruidvat
The nail polish remover does its job very well but there are downsides: the smell is not nice at all. In fact, it's awful. And the system with the pump (you have to place your cotton wool on the top of the bottle and pump) is not ideal at all. It can be quite messy...or that might be cause I'm too clumsy but I prefer a normal bottle.
But mainly the smell is the reason why I won't buy this again.

Daily Microfoliant by Dermalogica
Was part of the Deauty Box 2 months ago or so. You have to make your hands wet, pour some of the powder in your hands, make it cream and then rub it to your face.
It's gentle, ideal for everyday use and it does make your skin very soft and pleasant. Very happy with this one. Sadly, they sell in China so...won't buy it.
