this is so amazing!
this has a thick consistency and is a little difficult to blend in, but after a while i forgot i was wearing sunscreen. its just like a lotion. i highly recommend. my skin didnt feel as hot with this product.

i love this eyeshadow! it is SO pigmented and blends very nicely. because it is loose powder, i did experience some fallout, but it was not hard to cleanup. as a liner, it was very intense. with a primer, i did not experience any creasing, fading, or smudging. great quality.

i like this conditioner. it makes my hair smooth in the shower and after i rinse it out i don't get as many flyaways as i do with other conditioners (i notice the small details). it moisturizes my hair and leaves it quite soft. i would recommend this for anyone with dry hair!

good even on noncolor-treated hair
i was hesitant about this product because it had no sulfates but it lathers really nicely and cleaned my scalp really well. i can't say anything for its color retaining properties because my hair is not colored and i just used this as my regular shampoo. personally, i never felt like this shampoo dried out my hair. in fact actually felt like it added moisture to my hair after every wash because of its creamy consistency. i enjoyed the smell too because its refreshing like mint, which is great for a morning shower!

i like this shampoo overall because it is sulfate free and doesn't make my hair feel like straw when i wash it out. the formula is very creamy and thick, which feels moisturizing. the minty juniper in the shampoo makes for a refreshing wash that only feels tingly the first few times you use it (your scalp gets used to it after a while and the tingles go away). i've been using sulfate free shampoos for over a year now and my hair has become stronger and more resilient to split ends. i go longer without split ends. i would recommend this shampoo to anyone who wants to keep their hair moisturized, shiny and healthy or anyone who is trying to rehabilitate damaged hair. and for the price it isn't bad, especially since ULTA and CVS usually have deals like buy one get one half off.

this perfume is really easy to spray. i love the packaging! my friend sprayed this on me and i was pleasingly surprised by the scent. its very seductive like a trademark victorias secret scent. perfect for a night out! and the bottle is super cute so it looks awesome on any dresser!

i have very dry, acne prone skin. for the longest time i was using toner to treat my acne, but that just dried out my skin and my skin would overproduce oil to compensate for the drying effect of toner. i thought that i needed toner to dry out my pimples, but it was backfiring on me. then, i read an article that explained the error of my ways and i realized i needed to start moisturizing my skin instead. i stumbled upon this cleanser at ULTA and i bought it on a whim because of the pretty packaging, the cheap price, and the fact that it was a hydrating cleanser. i ended up buying the yellow bottle, which is the hydrating one. the formula is very creamy and it smells deliciously fruity! it has soothing moisturizing ingredients like pineapple, strawberry, coconut, and acai (maybe that's why it smells so yummy!). you can find the occasional strawberry seed in it, so it won't scratch your skin or be super exfoliating. i noticed a HUGE difference in my skin within a few days of using it. my skin used to always feel squeaky and rubbery after i washed my face, but with this, it just felt...normal! my skin feels clean and hydrated when i use this cleanser. i am simply in love with it! also, my skin has cleared up tremendously. my acne diminished because my skin is hydrated and not super dried out. and for the price, you get SO much product. the packaging is awesome. the pump makes it easy to dispense and gauge how much you need. also, you get 9 fl oz, that's more than most cleansers! i've had it already for 6 months and i'm only about halfway done with the bottle. so, if you're not allergic to the fruits in the ingredients and you have dry skin, this is a definite must have! i don't see myself changing cleansers for a long while.

easy sun protection, OK moisturizer
this lotion is great for easy every day sun protection. as we all know, prevention is key and the sun can cause premature wrinkles. this lotion isn't as thick as a sunscreen, which is perfect for daily application. it's actually somewhat runny, so it doesn't leave your skin oily at all. it's a happy medium between sunscreen and a daily moisturizer. i would recommend this for people with dry skin, like myself, because it isn't irritating. it does what it claims, which is to protect. i like that it has an spf of 30, which is higher than most daily moisturizers. good thing they advertise this as something for protection and not really moisturization because i think this lotion isn't extremely moisturizing. since the formula is thin, it doesn't completely moisturize dry skin. it would probably work better for people with oily skin. i find myself having to apply a second moisturizer with this, which is quite annoying. when i wash my face, i pat dry then i apply this and then my nivea cream and then i start on my foundation. it's a little pricey at almost ten dollars in most stores and i don't think i would repurchase this because it's not that much of a 2 in 1 product. i might as well just wear a sunscreen under my moisturizer! which would be a cheaper option! it's simply....OK....

worst bronzer ever!
this bronzer is seriously lacking. i purchsed it because it was on sale at ulta for cheap and i had a $1 off maybelline fit me products coupon. good thing i paid so little for this because it is not a good quality bronzer! first of all, i am a hispanic somewhat tan female. this bronzer is not pigmented enough to give me a bronze glow or even contour. i chose the darkest shade offered, but it did not show up on my skin. i would have to pile this on to even see some kind of result, which as we all know piling on powder can look cakey and gross! i wouldn't even recommend this for a lighter skinned, white person because i saw a video on youtube of a girl with light skin and she also said that it didn't show up on her skin. this bronzer is seriously a disappointment. i am going to keep using my hoola benefit bronzer and too faced chocolate soleil. please don't waste your money on this! you won't even see it on your face! the packaging is also very flimsy. after a week of using it, the plastic lid cover broke off. after dropping it just one time, the powder cracked and i was left with half the amount of product i paid for. yes, i was clumsy but i have dropped other powders before without having them break. i blame the flimsy packaging for breaking the product! this product is just a total overall fail! it is overpriced. it should be two cents for its lack of quality. i tried to be creative and still salvage this product but i can't even use this as a shimmery eyeshadow because it's so sheer. just awful!

best bath and body works scent
this is the best bath and body works scent of all time! i love its sexy seductive scent. dark kiss has been my favorite scent ever since its release. i think its perfect for day or night. i first tried it out by using the lotion. it's got all the moisturizing and smoothing properties of a lotion but with a stronger than normal scent. i've noticed that the dark kiss lotion has a stronger scent than any other of the bath and body works lotions. i once applied it to my arms and hands and walked into a room and everyone could smell me! my friend from across the room said she could smell me as soon as i walked in. this lotion has the potency of a perfume. i love this stuff! it leaves your skin moisturized and smelling date-ready. i would definitely recommend if you like the some-what runny consistency of a lotion and don't have super dry skin. otherwise, the body butter is more moisturizing and perfect for dry skin. it's also super scented!
