As close to a cream as you're gonna get
My skin is dry like the Sahara, so this gel had a lot of work to do if it was going to act as moisturizing as a traditional cream. I found that it glides on very easily, absorbs like a dream, but doesn't hydrate as well as a traditional cream. I do love it for night time moisture because it doesn't feel heavy on the skin and on the HUGE plus side, it was very easy on my skin as I am very breakout prone as well. The scent is nice, which is another plus. I will continue to get this product because I feel it does have a place in my very tedious regime of getting myself together, and the price is so very nice.

This is a great, pretty much invisible solid, that smells clean and does it's job all day, and my skin feels more moisturized or this is just really gentle. I am a HUGE dove deodorant fan now.

Worth every penny!!!
This body wash is so luxurious, it wraps your skin in moisture and a heavenly scent, rinses clean, and leaves your skin hydrated out of the shower. I have dry skin so I have to apply moisturizer regardless but I can blow dry my hair 1st without getting my hands greasy, making it impossible to get a good grip on my T3 Featherweight. I wish the bottle opened easier, which would be my only complaint, but a minor one at that.

I seem to be alone in the ratings pool, but for me this shampoo is a worst nightmare. I can first state that I saw no smoothing effects from the shampoo, which was used in conjunction with the conditioner. What my issue is aside from that, is that I experienced a lot of hair loss when I was using this product. After a while, I brought it up at work, and the 3 female workers around me, were all using Pantene, and all complained that they were experiencing hair loss as well. While it could be a coincidence, I immediately stopped using this and switched to Nioxin. I've never had the problem again, so it looks like a solid case of a bad reaction with this product.

Fun & Flirty
This scent is delicious with sweet and fruity notes, and has a softer muted musk that mixes to make it smell almost like fresh baked pie. I find it almost intoxicating and find myself sniffing my jacket sleeves when I forget to put it on. My husband is a big fan as well and that only adds to my love for this scent.

This is a conditioning product, period.
My first use of this product, I used it alone on my damp hair and I let it air dry. I loved the texture of the product before applying it - very much like whipped cream, and the scent is another nice bonus. After my hair air dried, it looked like it normally does - a lion's mane (I have coarse hair that is about 50% gray), so it wasn't a miracle product. I flat iron my hair after air drying and when I did, my hair was extra shiny and I felt it had a little more body than normal, but best of all, my ends still felt great. I used this product a couple times since the first time, and tried to change up the scenario by mixing it with my go-to products for styling my hair - and it performed even better. I really like the product and I will probably purchase when my can runs out.

This product does what it says, which is somewhat rare in the beauty industry. I used this product alone on my damp hair and let it air dry - and I have full volume coarse hair - and the result looked like something in a W magazine spread - cool but not something one could really wear. I then flat ironed my hair and the fibers really did hold some sections together and made my sleek look a little more piece-y and my style really stayed as well. I think lots of styles can benefit from this product, you just have to play with it a little, which is the fun part.

Give it time to 'set' and you'll be pleased
I admit, I am not a fan of rose scents to begin with. I find that scent to elude to an older woman, just as many previous reviewers have pointed out. I'm 30, and when I first sprayed the scent on, I thought I was too young for the scent, but that I would wear it until it was gone to get a full sense of what others may think. I liked that after the first whiff, it faded into the woodsy spectrum and the rose scent was much softer. After wearing it, my husband noticed and offered the standard 'you smell nice'. I had a few classmates comment that they noticed the smell and thought it was nice and not too perfume-y. Overall I like the scent, but I have to say that I would not purchase the scent, as it does not match me and my personality. I would also not recommend this for anyone in their early 20's, but for the late 20's and up, I think this is a nice day fragrance.

Great concept, poor execution
I attest to the many previous reviewers difficulty with the applicator. The sphere almost always has too much mascara on the bristles, so I would need to blot the excess before application. The first few times I did not wipe away the excess and I would end up having to try to separate my clumped lashes with my eyebrow grooming tool. The formula also dries really fast so that would make separating clumped lashes more difficult. I got the hang of it after several uses, but for me, I want a better formula and applicator for my money. The one plus is that if you do blot the excess mascara from the applicator, and you get the application process down, you have a really nice 'day' look, with separated lashes.
