Definitely Buying Again!
I got "A-ha! Moment", "I Need Space", "Mermaid to Order", "Leaf Him at the Altar", "Metro Chic" and from the Limited Edition Havana Nights collection I got "Caribbean Cocktail". All are amazing colors! I don't like "I Need Space" too much but it works well for a do it yourself french manicure if you use one thin single coat. Lightens and brightens up your nail a bit. "A-ha! Moment" is the best! I've tried to buy cheap whites but for some reason wih white nail polish it seems like you have to get the expensive stuff. It works thankfully! "Caribbean Cocktail" has to be my favorite color though. I'll be buying more of it! Metro Chic is super shiny! Leaf Him at the Altar is okay but I feel like it could be smoother looking. Mermaid to Order is fun and makes me think of pool parties, summer, and beaches! Great for summer! Great shine, dries fast and beautiful colors!

I love this hairspray! It's my go to spray. I use this on my curly hair when it's wet and it's starting to dry after being gelled. The maximum hold makes it good for curly hair and tightening your curls. I spray this over my hair before going out especially on humid days. You don't need a lot or your hair will feel stiff. The smell lasts a long time too! If I put my curly tresses up in a messy bun, when I let them down I can smell the lilly and bamboo scent around me in my hair! So good! I have been using this spray for over a year! The packaging is cute too! I'm a sucker for pretty graphics but this product is amazing!

As good as my Avalon Organics Lotion!
I'm a person of color and have a hard time finding a lotion that actually works. I hate applyting a lotion to my skin and 15 minutes later my skin looking ashy again. I want a lotion that does what it's supposed to do and moisturizes. So I usually use the pricey Avalon Organics lotion in Lavender scent but my sister turned me onto to this. She uses the body wash and lotion in the Papaya scent and I was just in love with the way it smelled! It's great because I like the scent more than the Lavender Avalon Organics lotion and it's cheaper! This lotion works amazingly well and keeps me moisturized all day long!

Acne Free! Original Acne Free kit
This kit works well. I don't have bad acne, maybe just 3 zits at a time and usually miniscule. But once in a while I get a break out. On about the 4th day of using it I saw some results. My skin was softer, a bit clearer and just prettier overall. It wasn't too harsh on my skin or anything, some tingling but no BURNING. Some redness but it went away fast. What's even better is I put some of the lotion on and when I was talking to my friend a few minutes later they said something smelled good. Now, I think the lotion smells kinda funny and like chemicals but the products do have a kind of sweet smell to them. So she said I smelled like vanilla. lol Also, ya know how the lotion feels like its an exfoliator, you have to shake it. It like separates or something and gets kinda weird if you don't use it for a while or shake it before use. A little graininess in the lotion doesn't bother me though. Whatever it is, it isn't visible. And the cleanser doesn't get soapy and sudzey like most so I use it like twice when I do. But you don't need a lot. It does work, and I am satisfied. I like having a lil matching set of Acne products that do help clear my skin and smell good! ^_^ All I can say is the lotion should be changed and the cleanser soapier. The toner is amazing! The products do work though, at least for me.

Not A Fan.
This has to be Clean & Clear's worst moisturizer, well for my skin anyways. I think it would work better for someone with seriously oily skin and severe acne(my sister perhaps) who's skin really doesn't need lotion per say but is interested in some anyways. This lotion doesn't have a pretty smell at all. It also doesn't really moisturize. I'm going to test this on my sister for about a whole week applying it maybe in the morning and midday and see if it helps her skin any. I'm sure it's not a crappy product but it just really doesn't work for my skin. My skin I'd say wasn't dry bu tisn't shiny either. It's kinda perfect, I get the occassional zit in the summer time though. So for combination skin types or people with dry skin, do not buy this. This is more like a serious acne treatment, you can just tell from the smell even. It's not an overpowering gross scent, but it's not good either. UPDATE: It works great on my shoulders and back and chest and great on my sister's face!

I Got COMPLIMENTS!
So, I got complimented on how I smelled and how my skin shimmered when I used this lotion! YAY! It moisturizes great too. ^_^ I got it in the Vanilla scent. Not my staple lotion but I want to get some more soon!

Compared to Herbal Essence, this gel is lame. It claims to have the strongest hold out of all the Pantene gels (hold level 4 maximim hold) but it doesn't have nearly anywhere near the same amount of hold Herbal Essence's Set Me Up Maximum Hold Gel does. I won't be buying this again.

Okay, this didn't exfoliate and as far as radiant, I don't think it moisturizes enough to leave your skin radiant. I won't be buying this product again. It doesn't even have a memorable scent.

Works Great On Any Hair That Is Thick
I don't use a microwave for health reasons and was unsure if I would be able to heat this up since I don't have a microwave. Well I heated it up on the stove in a pot with some water in it and set the container in there and it heated up fine. The little spatula worked well too, took me a little while to figure it out, but basically if the spatula says ready still while your stirring it then it's fine. The word's dissappearing mean it's too hot. So that was good. I used it on my forehead and around my hairline and it worked very well! It doesn't get finer hairs as well but I think it probobly could, just a matter of wich direction you spread the wax and pull from. I used it on my pubic hair, ofcoure that was extemely painful, but it pulled the hairs out and I never had to rewax a spot I pulled from, it got all hairs. ^_^ I wouldn't suggest this for hair above the lips(moustache lol) but it got all my other facial hair and my pubic hair. I think your hair above you lips would have to be thick or on the kinda loong side for it to grab. It probobly could, I think when I used it my hair there was a tad too short for it to pull. I like it though and I think I will try it again.

First Heat Protectant spray I've used.
Okay, so I sprayed this in my hair after I got out of the shower while my hair was wet. I used a ton of the stuff in my hair and combed it all throughout and let it dry in my hair, then I flat ironed it the next morning when it was dry. I don't know if it protected my hair, I assume it did but I'm not sure. I think it might have made flat ironing my hair faster and easier, not sure how, but it seemed like it straightened easier, which is good. I tried this again and this time just sprayed it in my hair while it was dry right before and during flat ironing and I don't think it worked as well. So yeah, with this I suggest you plan flat ironing your hair ahead of time and spray this liberally in your hair while it's wet to let it soak in and spread over all strands of hair. Especially if you have curly hair like me, ahead of time would be best, girls with straight hair could probobly apply it while curling or flat ironing.
