better than others I've tried!
First off, these tend to smell sooo nice. Not the usual "Smell me I'm wearing deodorant" scents! It goes on super smooth and feels soft, not chalky. It does a good job in preventing perspiration and keeping you dry. Only thing is, it doesn't stay completely clear - it will rub off on clothes.

sweet and sticky
This stuff smells really nice, goes on smooth and a little bit sheer, but it is very sticky. It's worse as time goes on and it's that dry-sticky feeling. However, it lasts a long time. Great if you find colors that you love!

can't unclog anything
I will give Biore credit for putting in a ton of scrubbing beads.. but they aren't powerful at ALL. They're too smooth, maybe this is more for sensitive skin, but in terms of getting deep down or exfoliating, it just isn't going to happen. The scrub is the right thickness, and the menthol/minty feeling reminds me of Neutrogena, but afterwards, my skin just doesn't feel smooth enough. You can get other, better products for half this price.

I wanted something that was cooling in the shower, and what better way to feel all over tingle than a scrub? I got this product as a gift and decided it was the perfect time to use it. The consistency is interesting - it's almost a paste of salt, not like other scrubs that have the separated oil and sugar/salt. I like how you can really just scoop a dab out, but that dab doesn't go very far. I had to scoop for ever part of my body - arms, legs, etc etc. The salt grains didn't dissolve quickly, which I found nice as I wanted to actually scrub. To my dismay, there was NO warming or cooling sensation :( I found it rinsed off very easily, and didn't leave a greasy tub. After getting out of the shower and toweling off, the scrub did was a scrub does - it exfoliated well. But, a lack of oils left my skin "normal" and not moisturized. I suppose the scrub doesn't claim that, but if I'm instructed to use it in place of my cleanser, I would almost expect some sort of moisturizing quality. I was shocked to find out this rub cost $24. Yes, it's a large tub. But I'd never buy it.

You can eliminate so many creams in your medicine chest because this one can replace them all. Rashes, bumps, dryness, etc can all be healed by this amazing ointment. Yes, it definitely stays on the skin, but the fact that it works so well will overshadow it. Just get it!

I never tried bronzer, and I'm glad that someone showed me how to use this product! I was so surprised at how well this product worked and made me looked freshly tanned and healthy. My only gripes: The shimmer gets all over, it's PRICEY for something you use once in a while, and it's limited edition.

good and bads...
I have a very hard time finding a color that I like one me. Then I stumbled upon Tiramisu. Let me tell you.. don't judge a book by its color! It looks so girly pink ,but it goes on sooo nicely and really compliments (me, anyway). It has a very smooth application though I have to put on a few layers for the color to really show, it's nice and shiny.. but.. I think the product actually smells like old makeup, and it definitely doesn't last more than 2 hours.

I've used a lot of toners, and it's hard to find one that isn't harsh, or doesn't do anything at all. This toner is a good balance. It's got a great, light scent a bit like tea. It sinks into skin quickly, and leaves it feeling smooth, toned, and cool. It lacks a bit on the moisturizing side, but that's what the lotions afterwards are for. Btw, I have combination skin.

works for me... sometimes...
Out of everything I've tried, this product works the best for me. It goes on silky smooth, and the "Fresh" scent is great. However, it also DOES leave white marks on clothing (not necessarily in the underarm area, but parts on the shirt when you take clothes off). Also, on my worst days it doesn't seem to hold up. I really wished they made a roll on.

did not go well with me!
I had a few pimples that came out from being stressed lately. I wanted something that worked fast, and I saw that Clinique had this product so I picked it up. It contains 5% benzoyl peroxide so I thought it would work fabulously. I spot treated, not slapped it all over my face. Thanks goodness! I woke up the next morning, pimple still there and unreduced, and not only that, the entire area that I got the gel on completely dried out. My skin literally felt like a dish scrubber, totally disgusting. I had to really apply the lotion for it to smooth out in 2 days. I tried the product again just in case.. and it happened again. I had to exchange it.
