Not my favorite
You can't argue with the price-- it's a good value. However, I find I have to leave it on my hair way beyond the recommended time to cover my stubborn greys. It also drips *everywhere* when you're applying it, and it seems to fade faster than other products I've tried.

Not my favorite
I have an unscented/unflavored variety, not strawberry. This is too "slickery" for me. It doesn't feel like it's soothing my chapped lips, and it wears off about two minutes after I apply it. There's nothing actively bad about it, it just doesn't perform at the level of my favorite lip balm.

Manicure in a Tin
I have horrible, ragged cuticles-- unless, of course, I remember to use this product daily. It smells nice, and feels good on the hands. In the dead of winter, when my hands are particularly dry (like sand paper), I'll use this all over.

Good, but out of my price range
I love the non-drip nature of the creme formula, and the coverage and color is fine. However, I can't justify the extra cost for this brand when there are much less expensive options that are quite acceptable.

My regular product
This is what I use regularly to cover greys. I'm trying to match my natural color (light brown), not go from black to platinum (or vice versa), so I don't know how this product performs for extreme color changes. I find it gives great, multi-tonal results that last the full advertised 6 weeks, and a little beyond. It's miles ahead of Revlon Color Silk, and not that much pricier.

Not as Good as it Used to Be
They've evidently changed the formula since the first time I bought this, several years ago. The newer formulation seems dryer, and doesn't feel as nice as you apply it. It doesn't dry my lips, however, and I still prefer it to most drugstore brands.

I feel like I tried every mascara under the sun before finally finding this product. They flaked, they ran, they smeared all over my eyelids while I was trying to apply them, AND they smudged my eyeglasses fom the inside. Not this stuff! It goes on easily, and stays put until you take it off. I can even sleep in the stuff, and not wake up with raccoon eyes.

Great Everyday Lotion
This is a terrific lotion for daily head-to-toe use. It feels good going on, absorbs well, and doesn't feel greasy. I also appreciate the fragrance free aspect, as I am moderately scent-sensitive, and allows me to wear another scent if I choose to. In the winter, I usually switch to something more heavy duty, but for spring, summer, and fall, this is my top pick.

Get it for the balm, stay for the color
Normally, I use the regular Burt's Bees lip balm as an undercoat before applying lipstick. In the summer, though, when I'm not using as much makeup, but want a hint of lip color, this does the trick, while giving my lips protection from the sun. Feels terrific on the lips, too-- not too waxy and heavy.

Like the rest of the Bare Minerals line, this works as advertised. I used to try to use "cream" formula concealers from a tube that looked and felt like you were drawing on your face with a crayon... NO MORE! This goes on light and smooth, but provides great coverage. Stays put all day.
