Works with Mineral Makeup!
I must admit, I have been cynical about primers in general since I switched to mineral foundation. Most seem to create a surface so smooth, the powder has nothing to adhere to. Not this one! It does indeed create a super-smooth surface, but not so much that powder makeup doesn't stick. While it did create flawless skin, I didn't notice more staying power due to the primer (hence the rating of 7).

The Best Out There!
As far as i'm concerned, this razor is the best out there. I've tried other brands out of sheer curiosity, and after one use headed straight back to Venus. This gets legs soooo smooth and best of all, it lasts. The stubble doesn't come back on my legs for at least a day or two. NO other razor does that. Another thing...the blades last forever! Can't remember the last time I changed mine and it's still sharp as ever. Seriously, now! Get one!

This gloss is true to it's name: Lustrous. It is a little thick, but not sticky. It glides on easily and has a lipsticky shimmer that is difficult to find in a gloss. It's glamour in a tube.

Not Easy to Apply
I was so excited to find a lip stain at the drug store...and well, i've had this for over a year, and used it maybe 4 times total. The problem? It's a complete pain to apply. If you use the rollerball applicator you are guaranteed bright red/pink lips with bleedy color outside of your lipline. I've handled this issue by applying with my finger. It works okay, but I still end up with extremely bright lips (nothing like the color on the package) and stained pink fingers. I wouldn't recommend this...

This is a bar of soap with "massaging" nobs. Yes, it works fine the first two or three times around (it's nothing special), but as you can imagine the nobs wear down after a few times in the shower...the product is not really functional for that reason alone--definitely don't buy it for the massaging aspect. Otherwise, it smells good and is moisturizing. I would still prefer to use an Olay shower gel over this product.

Great for Oily Skin
This product works great when used only a few times a week. Otherwise, it will dry out even the most oily of skin. It isn't a necessity, but I do like to use it when I see a breakout on the horizon. The tingly sensation is refreshing and seems to help dry up those pimples. Definitely nice to have on hand.

No Burn Here!
There are quite a few positives to this sunscreen. First of all, you avoid the horrible smell that accompanies most sunscreen. Aveeno Continuous Protections hardly smells at all. Secondly, I didn't burn. Not a single a bit. I used it on my face, but put a lighter Coppertone sunscreen on my arms and shoulders. Sure enough: Coppertone=Burn. Aveeno=Burn Free. My only complaint, I wish this absorbed just a little faster. Even though it's oil free it still has a slightly sticky, greasy consistency. Still no breakouts! Overall a great buy.

In theory, this product is genius. In actuality, it doesn't quite make the cut. The pros: It smells amazing. It actually did a wonderful job of cleansing my hair (without the use of shampoo). And I have crazy oily hair. The cons: I have long, thick, tangly hair. The product didn't condition enough for me to use it alone. Also, though it did clean, it really didn't lather. For this reason, I had to use a lot of product. Still, I like the fact that it doesn't dry my hair like shampoo sometimes can.

I'm a fan!
Love this shampoo. That's all there is to it. It lathers fabulously well and truly cleans my hair. After using it three times my hair was soft, shiny and completely detangled (which is rare for me!). It also feels less dry and i've noticed less breakage. Wella really does stand behind it's "salon" image. It did wonders on my hair.

Not too shabby!
I have a bit of a bias regarding salon hair products (mainly that they're overpriced) but Wella pleasantly surprised me. My previous shampoo left my hair tangly and dry. After using Wella three times, I noticed shiny perfectly detangled hair! Awesome! My one wish is that the conditioner was a little thicker. I feel like I have to use a quarter of the bottle to really cover my entire head.
