Why spend more?
I'm always extremely impressed by Suave products. I'm a graduate student and don't make a lot (any) money. I've gone from buying expensive professional and boutique brands to buying Suave. Even after I land my dream job, I'll probably never go back to spending $10+ on body wash again. This has been by far some of my favorite body wash I've bought. I bought the vanilla lavender and I love it! I look forward to taking showers. I bought the stuff on sale for $1.50 and I love it. It never dries my skin out and the scent is soft and enjoyable.

Not a bad scent, but no lasting power
I had to read the card several times. It says it is a Eau de Parfum, but I have had Eau de Toilettes last longer. The scent isn't bad. They have it right, it is a very feminine, girly scent. However, I agree with some reviewers who compare it to an "old lady" smell. It does smell like a very classic perfume. For me it left some things to be desired. I usually wear Juicy Couture, Lacostte Inspiration, or Vera Wang Princess. It didn't seem to stay with me like those scents do. I understand that a quality perfume is supposed to fade throughout the day and change, but midday the scent isn't even recognizable. I've also received zero compliments on it. I will almost always get a compliment from someone who is sitting next to me. Save your money and try something else.

Overall, I feel like this is a phenomenal mascara for the price. Unfortunately I think this mascara's greatest strength is also its greatest weakness. The actual formula is what I've come to expect from L'oreal, it wears great. Despite crying once while wearing this mascara, it never smeared or smudged, but came off easily. However, as I mentioned, this mascara's innovative wand is not only its strength, but also its weakness. What's bad: No matter what I did, mascara seemed to cake behind the medieval mace looking brush. If I didn't wipe it off before applying my mascara, I'd end up with horrible stuck together lashes with too much mascara on them. I hated having to waste that much mascara. What's good: The brush really is awesome. It reached lashes I didn't even know I had. As long as I wiped the base of the wand off, I had no smears or smudges from applying the mascara. If it was possible, I'd give L'oreal a 10 for overall concept, but a 5 for its actual execution.

This is a lotion I like for the summer. In the winter, when my skin is extra dry and cracked, I prefer something more creamy. However, if you want something light and that absorbs quickly, this is a great lotion. It is also a great buy for the price!

Between this, the mascara in a fancy tube, and the tube that looks like a barbell...I'm convinced that Physicians Formula makes THE worst mascaras around. I bought this thinking that the tube might make it easier to get the product off the sides. As usual for PF, innovative packaging can't make up for a crappy product.

Like a previous reviewer, I also think this is the best liquid liner. I actually like the slightly stiff brush. I think it makes it easier to apply than some of the other softer brushes. I also love the subtle sheen to the liner. Its very beautiful and dramatic. I think this is a great liquid eyeliner for people who are new to liquid eyeliner.

I bought this before I made the switch over to more expensive make up. I have barely used any of it...for two reasons. The dark patches are really dark. I prefer my blush to be much lighter. Even when I swirl my blush brush around, its almost too dark when I put it on. The good news is, it would probably last me longer. I'm sure it would work really well and look very natural on women with darker skin than me (I'm copy paper white).

My favorite "drug store" set
If I'm not using eyeshadow from Clinque or Lancome, this is by far my favorite stuff. It lasts all day and the colors are beautiful. I've used the same colors since I was a freshman in college and they still look great and work wonderful for me. I love using the colors wet because they are almost foolproof to apply and are so much more vibrant. However, applying them dry allows for a soft effect.

I've been using this stuff on and off since I was in college. It was always great because it was cheap, came in great scents, and lasted for a long time. Its not the best conditioner, but its not the worst. It gives basic moisture. It is probably best if you have no major hair concerns (such as colored hair, processed hair, dry hair, curly/wavy hair). If you have normal hair that isn't dry, then this is probably the perfect light weight and light on the wallet product.

I was shocked
I normally don't buy Cover Girl products, but I wanted a mascara to help define my lashes instead of make them bigger. I found that this mascara does a perfect job. I have some mild complains about the formula, it does start to flake on Saturday nights when I'm dancing and irritate my eyes, however I still haven't found a mascara that is 100% perfect. I also like the packaging. The tube is substantial and easy to hold onto.
