My go-to winter ointment
Every year when winter comes around, I feel the change in the season not by the temperature or whether it's sunny or not. No, I feel it in my lips. It could be 93 degrees outside (as it was today in "beautiful" Southern California this first week of October) but if my lips hurt, winter is approaching. They become these dry, flaky, painful things on my face. I must own at least 15 lip balms, chapsticks, etc. and nothing, I repeat NOTHING does the trick like this stuff does. It's my holy grail of ointments. Yes, it comes on white, yes, it smells medicated, but do yourself a favor and spend the $3 and deal with the white lips because that's so much better than the physical pain of having dry lips.

I actually feel like I'm being too generous giving it 6 stars, but it's not an awful product so I'll keep it where it's at. There was nothing special about this product. It didn't neutralize my shine at all. With or without makeup, after about an hour my forehead was gross and greasy. This product didn't do anything for my skin in terms of hydrating either. It didn't dry out my skin, but it also didn't do anything any drugstore moisturizer wouldn't do either. My pores are the same, my skin is still oily... I'm just grateful I only spent $7.99 on this product at Marshalls. Le sigh, I have yet to find a product that will actually neutralize my shine. I'm almost done with this moisturizer so the search for a new one has officially begun.

Works for heat rash
This summer was the worst summer for my pits. I think it might be because I stopped waxing due to $$ problems and started shaving. Not totally sure, but either way any time I would sweat my armpits would itch and itch and itch! It was the most painful and uncomfortable thing I've ever experienced in that area. So I stopped shaving. Well the itch was still there except now the hairs were poking me. Great. A girlfriend of mine recommended this deodorant so I bought it one day and let me say, it helped tremendously. The itch is virtually gone. I tried switching back to my old deodorant and it came back. So I'm hoping this is just a summer thing because I cannot afford to pay $10 for basically one and a half ounces of product. Because of how expensive it is I have to use it sparingly. I wanted to give it 10 stars but the price is just way too steep if you ask me.

Don't like it
I've been using this product for a few weeks now and my face is breaking out like crazy. I'm not sure if it's because I'm trying to skin care stuff or what... The odor absolutely burns my eyes to the point where I'm tearing up. It also has alcohol in it and I'm not sure how comfortable I am using a product that contains alcohol. My pores also look the same. Isn't it supposed to clear out and close your pores? The only reason I gave it a few stars is because if my face is very oily and I want a quick fix I just dab this all over and I'm dry as a bone. Good for on-the-go I guess, but I will not be purchasing again.

This product is all around pretty bad. The brush it comes with is awful, it needs to be a bit more firm and maybe not so long. The formula is also bad. It kind of felt like I was putting on liquid eyeliner. I've used Revlon, L'Oriel, and Almay liquid eyeliners and this product seemed similar to the Revlon one. It doesn't even go on dark so you have to put on a couple layers. I don't like it and I won't buy it again. Definitely not a recommended product...

Really like it
I'm gonna start out with saying this product is only $1. I wasn't expecting much and bought it without reading reviews (like I usually do) and let me say I am pleased. This isn't a miracle worker and it won't make your zits disappear overnight, but I really, REALLY feel like it speeds up the process! I'll break out and instead of taking the usual week for my zits to go away, this stuff makes them go away in like 3 days. That's big! I apply twice a day on any pimples and usually by the next morning I see a noticeable difference. I definitely recommend and most definitely will be purchasing again. I just hope e-l-f doesn't change the formula!

It's not the best mascara I've used, but it is okay. I use it for those days that I want a natural look or I'm bumming it but don't want to look like a total ogre. It doesn't really make my lashes fuller, but it does make them look a little more naturally enhanced. Like I said, no WOW factor here, just an easy look. Not sure if I'll purchase again, I think I like CoverGirl's mascara's a bit more.

I really wish I had read reviews before buying this product. It made me hair really course and so tangly! I don't like using conditioner every time I wash my hair, but this stuff tangles my hair up to the roots!! I couldn't believe the pain I had to go through combing it out. And it doesn't do anything for frizz. Will not be purchasing again.

I bought the Berry lip butter and I absolutely love it! I wear it before I go to bed and it stays on through the night and I feel my lips more hydrated. The lip butter itself has no tint to itself, but I feel like it enhances the natural pink in my lips and makes them look more kissable =) Plus the fact that it's organic makes it even better. I will continue to buy this product.

I can't decide whether I like this product or not, which is why I gave it a 5. It does give me a nice tint color, especially on the days where I'm looking pale from lack of sleep, stress etc. but it also feels a bit greasy. When I put it on it takes a while to dry and it feels a bit oily. Also, if I sweat or my eyes water, the stuff will get into my eyes somehow and it really burns. And the price is a bit high. The only reason I gave it a 5 with all those cons is because it does give me a nice color, which is what I was looking for and has a high SPF, which is really important to me. Don't know if I will purchase again.
