This lipgloss is decidedly thick, a little too thick and sticky for my taste; it feels as if you have a thick film over your lips. The colors are really flattering and the packaging is smart and mimics some of the high-end brands on the market, but the texture and medicinal smell lose points for me.

Okay, here's the truth
This is good stuff. I finally broke down and tried it after hearing and reading all the glowing reviews, and I have to say I wasn't disappointed. The cream softened my fine, frizzy hair and made it super shiny (my highlights looked fantastic, too). You only need a small amount (I separate my hair into three sections and use a pea-size on each section before blowdrying)to get great results so this offsets the price a bit. It sorta makes your hair look like "2nd day hair" from the get-go, but it doesn't get greasy too quickly either; your blow-out will last awhile. The cream makes your hair irresistably soft but it doesn't really make your hair appear much healthier and I noticed a ton of static while using it (yikes). Overall I would definitely purchase this product again as the softness, color enhancement, and shine are very addictive. This beats all others I've tried, but it's not perfect.

Neither here nor there...
Yeah, I don't get it. Not any better than any other serum I've tried. Makes my hair shiny. I think. And soft. I think. Just really unimpressed with this product especially reading all the rave reviews about it.

I'm actually pretty shocked. I hesitate to say "wowed" but I'm definitely pleasantly surprised by this mascara. Before I tried it it seemed gimmicky to me. I can appreciate that it is all natural and the tube and cap shaped like a leaf are kind of cute but (unfortunately) like most organic products what you get in "natural" and "eco-friendly" you give up in performance and formula. Not entirely so with this mascara. It goes on smoothly and relatively un-clumpy. It's not as dark or pigmented as it could be but this is likely due to the natural pigments instead of synthetic dyes. I don't have sensitive eyes so I can't attest for the difference as far as that goes between this and other mascaras but it did somehow *feel* healthier. Maybe it was the "green halo" effect of knowing that it was natural, but my lashes didn't feel as abused and taking it off seemed easier (though it can be a bit gummy when removing it). I have to disclose that I got this mascara for free from someone who designs the packaging over at Physicians Formula and I'm not sure I'd actually spend my hard-earned cash on it but I am happy I got to try it and will continue to use it until it's finished. Overall, if you're interested in or absolutely require a natural product this one is a great alternative that defines and darkens without the sixteen-letter ingredients.

I have pretty much resigned myself to never finding the perfect body lotion. I thought this might be the one since I love the Cream Oil body wash so much but alas, it was not. It is good, I like the scent, it hydrates well but it is still too greasy for me and doesn't sink in well. I don't like the "lotion-y" feeling on my skin after I apply it. I am still searching...

Makes me HAPPY, keeps my dry skin soft
I really, really love this body wash. I have used Dove Body Wash since it came out and the new nutrium line is really great. When the Go Fresh line came out I immediately fell in love with the scents but was disappointed that they weren't as moisturizing as the Cream Oil or Deep Moisture types. Then my dreams came true when not only did they make the Go Fresh body washes with nutrium moisture but issued a new scent, Pomegranate and Lemon Verbena. IN LOVE with this. The smell, no kidding, literally lifts my mood and it is the same wonderful, moisture-rich Dove formula that is a shower staple. Absolutely love and the price is just right.

I actually tried this concealer about a year ago; I had to filch some concealer from my Mom because I ran out of my own. Since I am in my early twenties I never really thought about purchasing any concealer that addressed fine lines or anything but after trying this I've changed my tune; at any age concealer can settle into any lines you may have under the eyes and age you. This concealer moisturizes and brightens the eye area, reducing the appearance of dark circles and never settles into those lines or creases. It's a great drugstore concealer and a steal to boot. Thanks, Mom!

Love these liners!
I have loved the 24/7 liners for a while now; it all started with a sample of Zero. These glide on so smooth, but once they're on DO. NOT. BUDGE. You can smudge them into your lash line even smudge them all over your lid and they are color-true and last. This set is a really good value if you like these liners because most of the shades are super wearable for everyday and there are a couple fun ones for evening (which can still be wearable for day depending on how you use them). These liners are normally $18 each so this set is an amazing value.

I am a sucker for little frivolous beauty items that make me reminisce about my younger days, it's true. I love bright nail polish and don't think I'll ever get over lipsmackers. When I saw this nail polish at the store I HAD to have it. It looked different from typical glitters; much more opaque and more like a "carpet" of shimmer rather than pieces of glitter. I picked up the "spectrum" shade (I think it's the one pictured) and gave it two coats. PERFECTION. Smooth, beyond shimmery perfect, fun color. I painted it on three days ago and this stuff is tenacious (the glitter probably has a lot to do with it), let me tell you. I picked up the "DVD" shade yesterday and can't wait to try that one out as well. So fun and a great price; the quality is really good.

Good idea, but doesn't deliver
This is supposed to be more concentrated with higher pigmentation. I think the "drugstore" started to catch on to why their shadows usually pale in comparison to more "luxury" brands and tried to improve upon this and still offer their products at an attractive price point. Good in theory, bad on delivery. I don't find these shadows to have much more of a higher payoff than any other regular L'Oreal shadow or other drugstore brand. Plus the awkward color pairings ensure that you'll have to buy at least two kits to find two complementary shades you can wear everyday and not just to a costume party. And after all that it tends to add up ($14-18) and still is nowhere near an Urban Decay or Lorac shadow. To get quality you have to pay for it especially in eyeshadows.
