Like the feel and the smell
I really like the subtle smell of this product. For a cream, I was surprised that it didn't feel heavy going on. Soaks right in. No adverse reactions. It would take extended use to determine the true tightening effect, but so far I like it and I'm going to keep using it.

Evens out and primes
I got this as a sample and so far, I love it! I normally use Urban Decay's eye primer, which seems to keep most eye shadows from creeping. This product works just as well but it has the added benefit of evening out skin tone as well. After using this, I feel like I'm starting with a fresher canvas and the shadow colors show more.

I don't really have visible pores but received a sample of this to try. Very silky but unlike other primers, it doesn't seem to sit on top of the skin. It blends in and leaves a smooth finish. Feels like nothing on. Makeup applies well over it. No scent. Another great product from Benefit. No surprise there.

This product claims to add 1,944% more volume. If you're not careful, you can very quickly move into the fake lash look. This really adds volume, length and curl. I put on two coats because the first coat seems to lengthen and define and the second coat really added volume. My lashes are standing up closer to my lids. There are two reasons I didn't give this a 10. One is because I would love this effect with one coat instead of two but I'm really impressed with the look I'm able to achieve with this. The other reason is the price. $23 for one mascara is way above the drug store price range and some of those are really impressive too. Not sure I would pay this much for something that is only marginally better.

Wow! I'm impressed.
I have sensitive eyes so a lot of the eye makeup removers on the market irritate me. The removers that are oily and have the two separate layers that you have to shake together each time tend to be too thin and actually get into my eyes. This product is very different. It's more like a thin gel and it doesn't have two layers that separate. You feel a little cooling sensation and then the makeup just wipes right off. No stinging at all! I got this as a gift with purchase from Ulta and I'm definitely going to purchase it. I'm surprised the average review here isn't higher. Can't think of one thing I would change about this product.

I saw a friend using this and was at first intrigued by the shape of the package. I bought one and found that it's SO much easier to find in my purse when I'm digging around. My other lip products are shaped like everything else (pens, mascara, etc.). I love the texture. It's not waxy. It's not sticky. It's just hydrating and smooth. Once you have it on, it doesn't feel like anything. The scents/flavors are very mild. I smell it a little when I first put it on but it fades very quickly. I even used this when I was in the hospital having my son. For any of you who have ever been through labor, you know how dry your lips get. And then hospital air for the two days following does more damage. This product kept my lips perfectly hydrated. I kept it right by my bed. So glad I discovered this! Also, after I bought three of these separately, I discovered they carry them at Costco!!

This spray is refreshing. I'm not sure how moisturizing it actually is, but it feels great in the summer time as a refresher. I kept this on my desk at work and sprayed it throughout the day, especially in the afternoon when I needed a little wake up. No smell. Bottle lasts quite a while.

Adds dirty feeling volume
This does work to add volume to my fine hair. However, it's one of those volumizers that works by making your hair feel 'dirty'. It does duplicate that 'been at the beach all day' feeling in your hair so if that's what you're looking for, this is it! Has a pretty strong scent, nothing bad, but a bit musky.

I received this as a gift in the Beach Box by Lush. I have never before used a solid shampoo. I didn't know what to expect but I was surprised by how well it lathers. I just rub this on my hair, then lather away. It leaves hair feeling very clean. I can't use moisturizing products because they usually leave my hair greasy. No issues with this one! If anything, I have to use a little more conditioner than normal so my hair isn't tangled. Fun find.

Can't do without this one
After years away from Clinique, I recently returned. I love this product. No matter what type of cleanser I use (even with the Clarisonic brush) I always see a little bit of brown on the cotton square with this product. Glad to get rid of the dead skin cells that were causing so many problems before. Feels cool & wonderful! Have had many fewer breakouts since coming back to Clinique. Every time I went off birth control pills before, my skin would break out. Now, after my first baby, I'm not on pills and my skin is staying clear and radiant. Even when I don't have time to wash my face in the morning, I do a freshen up with this lotion and feel refreshed and clean.
