Ideal for Travel
The shave gel bars on this razor actually work as well as usual shave gel. These are great for travel because they are inexpensive and don't require packing separate shave gel. Since you can't see the gel on your skin, you have to pay attention to where you're shaving, or you will likely miss some patches. Hardly an insurmountable burden. These get dull quickly, so I would not replace my usual razor and shave cream for these.

Waste of money
This concealer has good qualities. The lightest shade matches my very fair skin. It is also creamy and blends easily. But that's where it ends. It tends to crease (although admittedly not terribly). My real problem is the lack of pigmentation. I have minimal shadows under my eyes that don't require much, but this can't even manage to cover them. If I'm paying this much money for concealer, I expect results. There are countless drugstore concealers with better pigmentation. Absolutely will not repurchase.

Worth the price!
Despite hearing such amazing reviews, I was reluctant to buy this because of the price. I finally caved about 2 years ago and have been using it ever since. I have long, thick hair and still only use a tiny amount (a little bigger than a pea) on wet hair before blow drying. Right after I switched to this, my mother actually commented that my hair was looking "glossier." Sold. I also like that it doesn't have much smell so it doesn't compete with shampoo or perfume.

Some improvement in overall tone
In the interest of full disclosure, I received this product to test and I am only in my mid-20s with few signs of aging. The only aging I have noticed is around my mouth and I don't think that two months of nightly use of this product has made a difference for the few lines I have there. That being said, I have noticed a bit of improvement for my skin overall. The tone seems more even and my pores are smaller. Additionally, I have sensitive skin but had no reaction to this product other than some mild dryness that dissipated within days (although I kept using this nightly, so it seems my skin just needed to adjust). If you're hoping for real anti-aging benefits, you probably need to look elsewhere.

What I liked most about this product is the smell. It's light and sweet and reminds me of cake batter. Does it reduce shaving? Absolutely not. And while it is a thick and decently moisturizing shave gel, it is no better than the honey mango shave cream I buy at Trader Joe's for much less. Will not repurchase.

Not for combination skin
I bought this because it had a shade light enough for my very fair skin. I like the look this gives in that skin appears more even without looking make up at all. Great for everyday. It is also unscented. Unfortunately, this was not meant for my skin. In spite of powder and setting spray, my nose and the area between my eyebrows gets noticeably greasy while using this. Also, after trying to reintroduce it into my routine multiple times, there is no denying that this makes me break out. I would recommend it for dryer skin that is not sensitive.

What a steal
An amazing kit! I have medium blonde hair with slightly darker eyebrows and use the "Ash" kit. It is perfect. I occasionally use it all over my brows, but generally I just use this to fill in some sparser areas. It works great in either capacity. Even though it is tiny, I've been really happy with the brush that came with this. It has an angled brush on one end for the wax and a fluffier brush on the other for the powder. It takes me almost no time to do my brows and they always look worlds better. Stays put absolutely all day.

Nothing special; not for oily skin
This cleanser is adequate but nothing miraculous...or even fabulous. It has a little grit that provides some light exfoliation. I can't say the smell bothers me as I barely notice it. This does not foam up significantly, so I'm a bit disappointed by the false advertising (doesn't even foam with my Clarisonic). While this is a fine cleanser, I would not recommend it for oily skin. My skin doesn't feel clean enough after using this and feels greasy by the end of the day or even the next morning. It does remove makeup fairly well (even eye makeup).

My hair is thirsty
Ok, this doesn't promise to be a particularly hydrating conditioner, but shouldn't any conditioner provide some moisture? I don't abuse my hair (no sulfates, rarely use heat), but it was still left dry while using this. This did not damage my hair but it certainly did nothing to improve it. Sadly, it did nothing for volume either. I'm glad this is pretty inexpensive, but I'm reluctant to throw out such a large amount of product, so this is living out its last days as a shaving cream. Incidentally, it's not half bad at its new assignment.

This is an incredible lotion for the price. The bottle is enormous and lasts a long time. This has a fairly sweet but inoffensive smell. Most importantly, it moisturizes very well. I think it is soothing as the name promises. I don't have particularly sensitive skin, but I have no irritation after shaving from this. Certainly recommend.
