My Personal Miracle Worker
I all but gave up on my huge cystic pimples, until I happened to come across this online. This was my "Obi Wan Kenobi", my only hope. I tried this and the (6-week!) cyst had diminished significantly within two days! (Once I combine it with the drying mask, I can make any pimple, no matter how big, completely disappear in 2-3 days.)

It claims to make my brown eyes pop. It doesn't. The copper mascara is barely visible. The black mascara is OK, but doesn't define my lashes very well. The square handle makes it difficult to apply. I see this in the clearance cart soon.

Good Hold Without All the Crunchiness
I have very curly hair, so I just use a small amount of this gel mixed with conditioner. I like that it's more liquid than solid, making it very easy to use. It keeps my curls from frizzing, without any stickiness and very little crunchiness. (It's easy to "scrunch out the crunch".) The best part is that you get a lot of product for the money.

My local Walmart ran out of my favorite CoverGirl mascara, so I thought I'd try out this one. First, the fact that the little ball makes that vacuum *pop* sound when it comes out of the tube means that it makes a mess around the end of the tube. No matter how careful I am, I have to constantly wipe the end with a clean tissue. The formula is "blobby" and forms clumps. The design of the wand is not bad, though I needed to develop some skill in order to separate each lash with the "blobs". It requires time I don't always have in the morning. However, once I finally manage to get the desired "unblobby" effect, it lasts all day without irritation. (It doesn't flake in my case, either.) This will be the first and last time I use this.

My thick, super-curly hair is the kind that breaks combs and brushes. However, I found one of these at a dollar store about 10 years ago. (Sally's has it for $1.69.) I still use it to detangle in the shower. I've tried many wide-toothed combs, but this is the only one that will go through my curls without breaking and without causing me any pain.

Cleans and Clears Skin Without Irritation
It's rare that I give anything 10 stars, but this has helped to save my skin. I suffer from both seborrhea and cystic acne. (Actually, had I read the ingredients carefully, I probably would not have bought it, because glycolic acid can be really irritating on seborrhea.) However, I've been using it for about two months now and (along with Derma-e Problem Skin Cream), not only is the redness and roughness gone, but I haven't gotten a pimple or acne cyst. Even the acne scars are beginning to disappear!

Sticky but Tasty!
For something as glossy as this, it lasts quite a long time. I got the grape because I like the purplish color. Though I'm not a big fan of grape, this one has a pretty good flavor! My only gripe is how sticky it is when you first put it on. I like to use a lip liner (as a filler), then a light coat of powder foundation before I put on the gloss. It reduces the stickiness quite a bit and it lasts even longer. I also think it's a little pricey. All in all, it's not bad stuff.

Smells Like Borax
I give it three stars... 2 for being so moisturizing, and 1 for the scent not lasting very long. This is good because it smells like I've been hanging out at the laundromat all day. I'll stick with Amazing Grace, Thank You!

Dried up like a cheap marker
I really liked the color underneath my lip gloss. However, after about 15 uses I found that it had dried up like a cheap marker pen. It was way too expensive for such little usage.

I've never believed in a "face lift in a bottle" (and still don't). I received a full-sized bottle of this stuff, and must say, it makes for a great primer! I use it before my moisturizer (though I found it's not really necessary). I use concealers, both cream and powder, and found that they don't settle into the fine lines. The skin around my eyes looks smoother... at least for the day...
