cheap and works
for the price I expected a lot worse, so maybe that's why this product did not disappoint for me. I needed a sheer moisturizer for my very high spf lotion to balance out the pasty white I get after apply said spf lotion. While it's not the best moisturizer on the market, I love the sheer hint of color it gives and how natural it looks. And that's all I asked for.

I love olay
before olay I only used high end brands that I thought would do the job, because you get what you pay for right??! well not in the case of this toner. I freakin love it. I have combination skin that gets really dry in the winter and really oily in the summer. my skin is finicky and I've lived with clogged pores my whole life. This toner for a measly 5 dollars has cleared a significant amount of dirt clogged in my pores. I've only been using it for about a month and have gone through 75% of the bottle but I am hooked. I have never seen such a dramatic reduction in pore size and blackheads with lasting results. It really helped reduce the amount of oil my face produces during the day and let me tell you, with the combination of moisturizer, sunscreen, and a tinted moisturizer my face got really oily at the end of the day before this toner came along. I'm glad I jumped the gun and purchased this product on impulse. I'll never look back again.

saved my lips.
this winter has been very harsh on my skin and I was thankful that at least my lips were saved this season. I should have known, January winds would do the bidding to complete my winter skin woes. I had the craziest case of itchy, burning lips and tried every single lip balm I had on hand to fight it. When I was younger my mom bought this stuff by the dozen for me because I'd have severe cracked and itchy lips that I would lick constantly that would cause a ring of red around my lips that were sore and painful. I haven't had a case of those crazy lips in so long I thought it was just a childhood skin problem. Well this winter it came again with an angry vengeance, I asked my bf to grab me a tub while on his cvs run. When I opened it up, it smelled just like my childhood winters. very nostalgic and comforting. It burned really bad the first night I put it on, but it cured my lips and I'm so grateful for this little miracle worker.

I love this brand. so affordable and yet the colors and formula is crazy amazing! I bought the base coat two weeks ago and i cannot believe how long it extended the life of my manicure. I really like how it dries to a semi matte finish and evens out my nail bed for a smooth application of polish. I'm definitely picking up the top coat next time.

One time fluke?
A couple of months ago I received this product for free. I used it twice a day for about a month and did not notice any remarkable difference in lightning my acne scars or brightening my skin. I really like the smell of the product but the shimmers in the formula was a little off putting, especially since I don't wear foundation and my face looked too sparkly vs. the natural glow I was going for. So I stopped using it for awhile, I spotted it last night in the medicine cabinet and thought to put a little on before I hopped into bed. Woke up this morning with two tiny pimples on my chin and a huge painful zit near my bottom lip. horribly painful! so much in fact, that I had to write this review. For the price tag it just isn't worth it, there's better stuff on the market for much, much less. two stars because it smelled nice and I really do love estee lauder.

wishing it lasted longer
don't get me wrong I love these candles, there are a varieties of scents and I can't get enough of the holiday ones. They definitely make a room more inviting and fills it with a wonderful fragrance. The only downside is the rate at which they burn. I have a habit of burning candles for an EXTENDED period of time so I'm constantly on the lookout for slower burning candles. These candles smell great but for the price it just isn't work it. Especially when I can go into Target and find candles at a better price that'll burn twice as long.

I've seen this product on so many blogs and decided to buy the honeydew one while at walgreens. I have never looked back! this is the best lip balm I've purchased, by far. it's moisturizing and has great staying power. the aesthetics of this product is so appealing and different from everything else on the market that you would think that it probably wouldn't hold up to other lip products; but you'll be presently surprised I promise. I recently bought sweet mint for myself and my boyfriend, because he finds it just as intriguing as I do.

love this stuff
I was browsing walgreens before work, and spotted these on the shelf above the sinful nail polish display. There was only one black left, so I just had to purchase it. I did have high hopes for this liner as it received so many good reviews from blogs I love. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed, I am in love with this eyeliner. It goes on with out having to apply much pressure, and it stays put through the day. I am definitely gonna purchase as many of these as i can when they restock!

A little tip
This eye cream is by far the best I have used. And i've only used it for about a week. So I'll be sure to update in a month. The results I see right now however are astonishing, I have great big bags under my eyes and dark circles from staying up late what with work and school. But this has definitely improved my eyes making them brighter and less puffy. I have even gotten a few compliments from friends and family wanting to know why my skin looks so great. Now for a tip, the first time I used this eye cream I put a lot on, and went about my day in about 5 min the product started to seep into my eyes and man did it burn. So I've learned just two tiny dabs goes a long way. trust me. you don't need a lot to see results. and thats what i love about it.

I don't go to bed without putting this on
I'm one of those lazy skin care people. I'll wash my face regularly but skip a day when I just don't feel like it. Well since getting this night cream I've been taking care of my skin nightly for about a week and a half. This stuff is so lightweight! And after only a week of usage I can see that it's working it's magic. Not to mention the price is so affordable. I don't normally use avon but the anew line is just blowing me away. The only downside is the overwhelmingly perfume scent of the products. hope they handle that soon.
