Not Orange, but Stinky
I've used several self tanners before like Neutrogena and L'Oreal. I would say Jergens is pretty good as far as not making you look like an oompa loompa. The tan is very gradual, almost too gradual. It works well as a lotion, but my main problem with it is that it stinks! The fact that it tans you gradually would be ok if I'd actually want to use it daily as a lotion, but the fact is that I don't really care to smell so I try and use it at night instead.

Provides Great Moisture w/Fast Absobancy
I love this lotion. While I haven't used it as an all-over lotion yet (I just use it for my hands), I must say I am very impressed. The smell is very mild, it moisturizes great, absorbs quickly and leaves skin feeling silky smooth, soft and non-greasy. What more could you ask for in a lotion?

Awesome. Perfect Coverage + SPF!
I really love this stuff. The coverage is just enough. It evens out your skin tone, but doesn't go on cakey. I have very oily skin and for the past couple years have been experiencing adult acne (I'm' 26) so using moisturizers is hard for me. I have to be very careful about what I put on my face because I'll break out. It doesn't make me break out or make my skin super oily, plus it has SPF and helps with anti-aging so how can you go wrong? I had heard great things about this and so I figured I'd give it a try and I'm impressed. Plus it lasts forever! You can easily get 6 months of daily usage from this.

Iâ€™m 26 and have very oily skin. Many of my friends claim to have oily skin, but theirs is no comparison! As a result I had constant blackheads and huge congestion, especially around my chin area. I have tried everything for my acne â€“ Proactive, Neutrogena, Biore, Clean and Clear, etc. I went to see a dermatologist and tried Differin and even Retinol (A) at two different percentages. I also went and got a facial in hopes of that helping. I purchased the nearly $200 Clarisonic brush thinking that would maybe help to deep clean. Iâ€™ve done the whole three step routine (cleanse, tone, and moisturize), not skipping a morning or night. I was about to give up and go on birth control, which I didnâ€™t want to do after having a bad experience on it many years ago. Then I found Philosophy. I read that especially for people w/oily skin by using too many drying cleansers it actually causes your skin to produce more oil, which in turns causes blackheads and congestion. Iâ€™d always heard to use oil free face washes with either salicylic acid or benzoil. Anyway, apparently if you use a face wash with natural oils it can actually help to attract the oils on your face and cleanse it better. Makes sense with the whole oil and water repelling each other thing. So now I use Philosophy face wash (in combination with my Clarisonic brush a couple times a week), follow it with Neutrogena makeup remover (oil free) as a kind of toner to remove any excess makeup, and then moisturize with an oil free Neutrogena moisturizer. Iâ€™ve been at this for over a month and have noticed significant results. I also use Biore blackhead clearing scrub a couple times a week for exfoliation. I hope this helps people because it took my forever to figure out this solution, not to mention lots of money wasted on products that simply did not work! PS - If you order directly from Philosophyâ€™s website and sign up to be a member, they send you a coupon for a free 4 oz. bottle of the cleanser!

Caused Allergic Reaction
A couple of years ago I purchased this serum to treat under eye circles, fine lines, etc. I purchased it because I had heard of the positive reviews. Overall I used it for about a week and the only thing I noticed was the fact that I had some sort of allergic reaction to it. My eyes became all red and swelled up. At first I had no idea what it could be from, but then it dawned on me. As soon as I discontinued use of the serum, the problem went away. Anyway, I just thought I would let others know. I DO NOT have sensitive skin and the only thing I have mild allergies to is certain brands of Pinot Grigio wine, lol. My belief is that it was the rose as that is one of the main ingredients.

Iâ€™ve been using this for two months now. I purchased it based on the positive reviews on here and because of the low price point. I wash, dry and flat iron my hair almost daily so I need a protectant. I also have fine hair that becomes fairly oily by the end of the day so I didnâ€™t want something that would weigh it down, make it oily, or leave by any sort of residue, which happens with some products. This product didnâ€™t do any of that, but I donâ€™t really feel like my hair is any more shiny, soft or even dare I say healthy after using it. Plus, and I know this is subjective, but Iâ€™m really not all that into the smell. It could be a lot better!

Maybe it's me, but when my 6 year old Revlon straightener died I went online and did some research and determined I'd purchase the Conair 2" straightener. Bad idea. I paid almost $50 for it at Ulta and after using it for 5 days, each day increasing the temperature level, I decided I was done with it and returned it. It's a bit heavier than most straighteners and it's harder to use in the sweeping or almost brushing motion I like to use because it snags. Also, it doesn't hold. Granted it's summer and very humid in WI, but isn't that what straighteners are for? Mid-day my hair would be slightly wavy and not stick straight as I was used to from my old Revlon straightener. As far as features go however, they are great. Only thing that would be better is more temperature options.

I love these. Sometimes I even take them when I travel because when I don't, I end up wishing I had! You can purchase them for less money at your local drug store with the other nail tools.

I Don't Get It
After reading so many posative reviews on this stuff I went and purchased some for myself. After using the entire bottle now, I have to say...I don't really get what all the fuss is about. I have straight, fine hair and used it after shampooing in the shower. I always rinsed it out after leaving it in my hair for a couple minutes. Maybe I shouldn't have rinsed it out? I just figured it would weigh my hair down too much. I was fine as far as conditioners go, but definitely not a miracle. I prefer Biolage. Also, the smell isn't great.

Insurance for Hair
I've gone through about two bottles of this stuff. I love the smell and it is very light-weight. You can really spray several sprays and then style as normal and really not tell it's in there other than the smell. It's not like it makes my hair more smooth or straight instantly, it's just I use it for protection against heat styling. It's more like hair insurance. I'd say it's a pretty good value for the money because it lasts quite a long time.
