I had their Peppermint and Plum. It had light purple color, and I remember it was very creamy, and their pumice granules were fine. The scent was sweet, but when I rinsed the scrub off, I could feel a slight tingling sensation. Since it is not very rough, this is good for someone who never used foot scrub before. I have quite thick & dry skin, so I can use a stronger scrub. Regardless, Freeman's foot scrub is inexpensive, but still make my feet feel polished gently. Don't forget to use lotion afterward.

I was scared of the five blades at first, but it turned out to be great. But I honestly cannot say which one (Venus Embrace or Venus Breeze) I like more. Both shavers have the similar price range. While Embrace may give a bit closer and smooth shave, but Breeze's built-in shave gel bars are incredibly convenient. Oh, BTW, Embrace's shower pod to hold the razor in the shower is handy too. If you need a quick shave, then Venus Spa Breeze may be a better choice. But if you have a time and a can of shave gel, try Embrace. Refill cartridges are a bit pricey.

Need base and top coat?
One color I picked (Pink Freeze) was not exactly I expected from a store display. I thought it would be a bit darker pink. I had to apply 3 coats to make it a nice solid and even color. To be fair, another color "Autumn Berry" was warm, sexy and rich. BTW, this is supposed to provide "10 days of lasting color and shine", but obviously this statement is so exaggerated. There is no way this nail color lasts longer than three days. Oh wait, it says that I have to use base and top coat...no wonder these chipped easily.

I choose a tinted lip balm over this one
It comes in a dual-ended stick, and I picked up the shade, Forbidden. It looks brown and plum color outside, but when I apply, it looks a bit more reddish on my lips, which I actually don't mind. I don't like the lip stain applicator. It does not go on smoothly and evenly. I end up using my finger tip. Also, the color does not stay for a long time. When I eat or drink, it disappear even faster. I thought a balm on the end of the stick would make the color stay longer or something, but it does not do anything special. Completely meaningless. The only thing I like about this lip stain is the pretty color. But overall, I rather use a good tinted lip balm.

No miracle scar cure
I was so clumsy that I knocked down a mug filled with boiling water about a year ago. My stomach area got burned, and some of the skin peeled off after I used ice cubes.....anyway, I used a tube of ointment, and after my skin was healed I started using Mederma. Yeah, I agree, Mederma is expensive. I got the biggest tube available, and it was more than $25. I patiently used Merderma continuously. The colorless gel is not very thick, but a bit gooey, and has a weird scent, not really like aloe though. My skin feels soothing after apply Mederma, but that's not why I bought this. The brown area seemed to fade away a bit over months, but I can still see them to this day. I cannot honestly say that it was because of Mederma. It may be that the time is the key factor to fade the burned spots. I did not buy the third tube because there was no improvement at the end of the second tube.

Quick result but fade away quick too
I noticed a difference after one application. One “Half Body Application” towelette was enough to do my arms, legs (only below my knees) and face. While my arms and legs looked natural, my hands looked somewhat dirty and orangey, and it did not give enough color for my face. But maybe it was my fault because I used it on my face last, or I may have to use another one and more often. It has the fragrance but definitely not as strong as many other self tanning products that I’ve tried. Dried quickly. Easy packing for travel. No mess. This self tanner is nice for a fast tan, but I think this product is pricey for short-term results.

Maybe not for my long hair?
At first I thought that the scent was too strong, but fortunately it disappeared a few minutes later. My hair looked a bit fuller shortly after I applied and styled. But within 2 hours or so, my hair looked flat, and I did not notice a significant difference anymore. Maybe it is because I have long hair? It did not give me the body that I wanted. When I used a bit more, I felt that my hair became somewhat sticky, and I had an urge to wash my hair at the end of the day.

Buttery and smooth
I used it after showering. When I put this on, it seems a bit greasy at first. It feels really buttery. Well, of course, this is body butter, thus, it does not bother me much. A little bit goes a long way. I think that their formula takes a longer time for the skin to absorb (than my favorite lotion). However, it holds its fragrance longer, and more importantly it seems to keep my skin moisturized longer. Speaking of fragrance, like many other reviewers say, it has a nice scent - sweet and fruity. It is quite strong. I would like this more if the scent was a bit lighter.

Less alcohol smell
The Fresh Lemon scent is very refreshing. I am glad that the scent does not linger on my hands. Just like other instant antibacterial hand gels, this one dries fast and is easy to use, and the 1 oz bottle is small enough for carrying in my purse. However, I don't particularly see a benefit of moisture beads. I noticed that they have an unscented, but I am looking forward to trying a few other fragrances.

It did not work for me
I used about 5 weeks, but I did not see any result. I contacted Jergens, and they told me not to use any other toner/lotion/alcohol contained products before AND after applying it. I need to use some products to take care of my acnes. I guess this is good for those who do not use any other products.
