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.

Aloe Calming Facial Cleanser
I have sensitive/reactive skin so aside from Aveeno Ultra Calming cream cleanser, I have really not found a facial cleanser that really cleans and removes make-up without leaving behind flushed skin or a burning sensation. Even Clinique's cleanser leaves me a little dry. This creamy aloe cleanser from The Body Shop is wonderful. Even a person with dry, sensitive skin can feel refreshed and clean

Aloe Body Butter
Although this body butter was fragrance-free and user-friendly for those with sensitive skin, I didn't find it special. It was no more effective at moisturizing my skin than some drugstore lotions that are much more reasonably priced.

I've Now Switched
Stopping at The Body Shop for the first time, I was introduced to this oil. I was pleasantly stunned and magically transported back to High School where my first fragrance was Jovan Musk Oil. It drove the young men wild then. I bought it of course.The saleswoman took the wand to my arm and the soft scent lingered on my skin for hours. I'm sensitive to many sprays but an oil is fine. The musk...the amber...the lily, jasmine, and patchouli...Ahhh. I can dot it on my wrists, under my knees, behind my ears...Now. Here's the REAL selling point: In the evening, I swiped the wand back over my wrists and behind the ears, under the knees, and *ahem* on my inner thighs. The response from my husband said that I'll never look for another scent again. Please don't flood the air with your use, now. I wanna be unique.:-) tee hee.

Creamy Subtle Color
This lipstick is so creamy and moisturizing. I love how it's not a harsh color, but instead goes on very sheer and shiny with that fig smell and taste. I have Plum Fizz and Crystal Beige. Beautiful. The color that shows through looks a lot darker than what shows up on your lips. The quality of the product and the classy beauty of the packaging make the price worth it.

Good But Expensive
Ditto those that say this oil is fantastic for the skin and hair but it is way overpriced. I got some good quality 100%organic Argan oil at a local health food store for half the cost.
