Glossy, Shimmer, and Fabulous
I honestly love this lip gloss and own several. I think the fig smell and taste might be part of it. But with the gloss, you don't HAVE to put on color if you don't mind just a hint of color. I own Praline, Sugarcane, and Honey Glaze. The Honey Glaze can go over any color lipstick as it has very little nude color and Praline is a cool peachy gloss, terrific on its own. It costs more than a drugstore brand, just slightly, but I think it is worth it.

REN Hydra-Calm Day Cream
Since I react negatively to sunscreen in face cream like many people with sensitive skin, I was excited to get this sample of REN's spf-free cream. It's pretty thick so if you have oily skin, it may be somewhat heavy for you. Since I turned forty my skin went from normal to dry so it doesn't feel too heavy to me; in fact, because of the thick consistency, this sample has already provided three uses. Maybe the high price is really not that high after all in the long run. But I did take a star off because the price is a hefty chunk of change at the initial purchase.

Go For It!
Although somewhat pricey, this toner is awesome! It's cool, refreshing, and nonirritating. It feels luxurious when used with a cotton ball because it feels like liquid silk. It feels creamy and moisturizing, and it removed all remaining make up and grime left after cleansing my face. If you have the money to spend on this toner, go for it!

Skin Like Velvet
Oh my gosh! I got a sample of this cream cleanser from Sephora and am thrilled with the results. I just dipped my finger in the sample jar and washed my face in warm water. The cream's chamomile, willow herb, and jojoba must be soothing for reactive skin because it didn't irritate at all and I'm somewhat timid about trying new things on my face because I usually DO react to everything. After drying my face too, I noticed my skin was like velvet So smooth. So soft. The only down side was the price. But...With the amount I used to wash my face one time, the sample will probably last all week. The 26 dollar bottle would last for months. Great find!

A Real Boost
I agree with another reviewer who said aside from the unpleasant smell, this product is great! It initially smells like the grease my dad used in his hair when I grew up in the 70's but the scent dissipates fast. When I mist this over my freshly-washed air-dried hair, my natural curl just springs to life. Like a leave-in conditioner, it moisturizes and softens my curls. No frizz!

Feels,Tastes, Smells & Looks great!
I tried the "Dolly" at Sephora and I actually bought "Dolly" and "Gabby." The Coffee/Chocolate Mint flavor makes you feel like you have just consumed a luscious treat. The feel is moisturizing, smooth, and cool. The look is glossy and natural. "Dolly" probably looks great on anyone and is a natural color. "Gabby" is a darker plummy brown color - looks great on me! ~ 4/14/11 Being a lipgloss addict,I have tried and purchased many glosses. This gloss is the only one I repeatedly purchase. It'sis sheer so it changes the color of whatever you're already wearing, like a lipstick shade or a neutral Chapstick. It's moisturizing, tingly cool, and not sticky. I have BETTY, GABBY, and VANESSA.On a brunette with fair skin, all of these colors look fabulous.

Beachy? Jennifer Aniston's perfume doesn't smell like any beach I've ever been on. Not unless we're talking about a particular beach that has Gardenia petals strewn all over the sand. Of course every scent smells different when warmed by someone's skin. I've just never been impressed by celebrity fragrances.

Tresemme Flawless Curls shampoo needs to be paired with conditioner. Otherwise, it is quite drying and in no way helpful for soft waves or curls. It left my soft, thick waves like dried straw even though I don't wash my hair daily - maybe a few times a week. It cleaned my hair, was cheap, and it smelled nice but I wouldn't recommend it for "flawless curls" because it would need a lot more moisture for that. I had to add a few pumps of Aveda's Smooth Infusion or a couple pumps of Argan oil so my hair didn't look like a steel-wool pad.

Get a Better Product
This Pantene detangler for curly hair smelled like hairspray. Although it t detangled my dry wavy hair like it said it would, it left it greasy and smelling of hair spray. It's probably perfect for coarse, kinky African-American hair.I won't get it again.
