Lancome Crescendo Peel Review

I hate to give another negative review, but I am not in the business of giving good product reviews simply because I received it for free. Earlier this year, I was given a full size sample of the new Lancome Crescendo Peel courtesy of Influenster and Lancome. I was excited to try it, because hey, I'm reaching my forties, so anti-aging skincare is important to me.

Editor's Picks: Gift-Worthy Fragrances


A fragrance is such a great gift for a special someone. It's substantial but not too expensive, depending on which kind. And the good ones come in such pretty bottles. My personal favorite are the Victoria's Secret perfumes. Scents like   Sexy Little Things Noir by Victoria's Secret come in such beautiful packaging, though I'm partial to the scent of VS Pink and VS Sheer Love.

Perfumes can be such a sentimental gift. With scents like In Love and At Last, Lollia makes for a very sweet gift. I love the floral prints and unique packaging for their other items like bath soap and lotion.

Jo Malone Cologne Collection Set of Five Travel Size in Box

Back when I cleaned houses for a living (yes, I was a maid), I had a few wealthy clients, and these luxurious women all had one thing in common when it came to their bathrooms - they each had a gleaming silver vanity tray covered with several expensive bottles of perfume. And the one brand that each of them seemed to always have on hand was Jo Malone. So, while I have no idea what any of the Jo Malone London perfumes smell like, it is something I've wanted, something I associate with luxury.

These rollerball perfumes have been a favorite of mine because they're more affordable, but also because they're perfect for travel. Whether it's for a weekend away, or simply for day to evening, I always keep one of these in my purse. So many perfumes are now available in this functional mini size.

Tocca is another perfume brand I associate with luxury. I see it every time I'm in a girly high-end boutique; it always catches my eye. Like most luxury fragrances, it comes in a variety of scents that combine florals, musk, and fruity elements. What are some of your favorite scents?

  2. Such a lovely post, Krisztina! I've never tried any of these scents before, that Tocca fragrance sounds and looks great! I personally love nearly all of Marc Jacobs' perfumes, my two ultimate favorites from his collection are DOT and Lola. I also love Dior's J'Adore as well as Gucci's Guilty and Flora. I guess I have a lot of favorites, haha! Thanks for sharing and I hope you're having a great day so far!

  4. I've used the same fragrance since college. I found one I loved so much, that when I heard Estee Lauder was going to discontinue it, I bought every bottle the store had in stock that day. They lasted me a few years.

    Happily, they've brought it back.
