Not Bad but Not Enough Hold for Curls
This definitely eliminated frizz and wasn't sticky or drying (or crunchy) but I needed extra hold to pump up my curls. I now use my mousse for curly hair first with a little of this afterwards when I go curly. It did work great when I straightened my hair. It didn't weigh it down and it kept the frizz away.

Made Hair VERY Dry & Sticky
My hair is very long, curly and it's in pretty good condition as I never heat style. I had read that hairstylists recommend styling creams/lotions for curly hair in the summer months and I thought I would try this product. Right from the begining I was highly disappointed. The texture is very watery for a milky lotion, felt sticky going on and ended up making my hair VERY dry. When I read the ingredients, to my surprise, I noticed the product contains alcohol. Since its always recommended if you ahve curly hair to not use products containg alcohol, this surprised me. Needless to say, I returned it and its made me leary of using anything else from Tresemme.

Really Nice Gloss, Really Great Price
I tried this gloss after reading some of the reviews on this site. I agree that this gloss has great shades, great moisture and texture/scent. And the price doesn't hurt either! I really like the "Moonlit Mauve" and "Bronze Berry" Shades. They are much more sheer on then they appear in the tube. The brush took some getting used to since its pretty small but it gives the perfect amount of color and a lot of control for application.

I have very fair, very sensitive skin. I seem to always have some color in my cheeks already so blush has always been my "issue" area and cream blushes were never an option. I decided to try this since Carmindy was the creater and her make up philosophy matches mine. Great choice on my part! I bought Beaming (due to the recommendations on this site) and Rosy, which is a much deeper reddish-brown shade. Neither have irritated my skin and Beaming is perfect for day and I use Rosy for night (very sexy flush with this one! LOL). And the price?! Can't beat it!!

Really Good for Fine, Wavy/Curly Hair
This mousse was a pleasant surprise for me! My hair is fine but I have a lot of it and its a wavy to curly texture. I find that gels are too heavy for my hair and weigh it down but mousses usually make it stiff and "crunchy", which I hate. This was perfect for my hair type! It held well, defined my curls and cut down on the frizz without being heavy, sticky or crunchy. I tried combining it with the spray gel from the same line with less than desireable results- this combijnation did prove too heavy and my hair was more "crunchy" then with the mousse alone so I am sticking with just the one product.

Excellent Product If You Can Afford it!
This is, if not the best, then one of the best tinted moisturizers out there. HOWEVER- the price is outrageous!!! I can only give it 3 stars due to over price of product and the fact that the packaging, once you get down to squeezing the last bits out of the tube, actually split on me and I ended up with the product squirting down my shirt front. If the product wasn't so expensive I wouldn't have worried about squeezing out the last of it but who can afford this regulrarly in this economy?!!!

LOVE These LipSheers!!!
I just love these lipsheers! This is the perfect lip product, I swear. The sheer color and shine of a gloss, the moisture and sunscreen of a balm and the ease of application of a lipstick. Plus the minty flavor/scent keeps your breath fresh. Also, since red lipstick is so big this fall anyone who is a bit scared of red should try the Ruby Bliss- its a perfect brownish-red that should look good on all skin tones and its sheer enough not to require a lip liner and not scare anyone not used to wearing red.

Sensitive Skins Beware!
I really, really wanted to like this product as Neutrogena makes some of my fav products and they're reasonably priced. However, when first applying this product I noticed 2 things immediately that I did NOT like- 1) the brush isn't soft enough and 2) the coverage was even a little too sheer for me and I like a more sheer coverage. However what really did in this product for me was the irritation break out I had start up after wearing the product for about half an hour. My skin began to itch and then swelled into small red bumbs that continued to itch for several days even though I washed off the product as soon as I noticed the irritation. I have since found out that the product contains bismuth oxychloride which can cause irritation and/or acne breakouts. I would not recommend this product if your skin is even the slightest bit sensitive!

Loved It But Not Worth The Price!
Seriously, the price for this product is just outrageous. I kept seeing all the great reviews and had received a gift card and that was the ONLY way I was justifying getting this product. Yes, it smells great and felt wonderful but there is no way on Earth I would EVER buy this myself, especially not in this economy. Benefit is known for their great products but also for their high price tags.

Not Impressed...Px Makes Better For the Money
This is a good, basic eye cream for someone who is young and has no issues with puffiness or circles and has not yet developed any signs of aging. Honestly, this product does not produce any better results than any basic, mass market brand eye product that will be less than half the price of this product. If you DO have eye area issues, specifically puffiness and dark circles, than Px has a better eye cream: the Vibrant-C.
