Irritating, but works
This product does a great job of clearing up my acne and blackheads but it does tend to burn, irritate and dry out my skin. It's not so bad on my more oily nose, but it really dries out the area around my mouth where I tend to get pimples. But then, my skin is sensitive and every acne medication I ever tried has burned and irritated my skin. So, I only put it on problem areas and wear it overnight only when I need it. I've found that if you don't wash it off your fingers after use it'll make the skin on your fingertips peel. It also has a chemical smell that I don't like. This astringent works but it's definitely not for prolonged or everyday use. I love/hate this product because it irritates me but it gets rid of my acne/blackheads. I do recommend this product but it must be used sparingly and be aware of the side effects.

My family always used Dove beauty bars when I was growing up, and I continue to use it now. It's very gentle, lathers well, cleans, and doesn't dry your skin out. We used to use the pink bars, but now use the white ones. I prefer the white bars over the pink ones, but the only difference between the two is the color. I recommend the Dove beaty bar to anyone who has dry sensitive skin or likes moisturizing soaps.

like the lipstick, but not long lasting
I like this line of lipstick and it has a good color selection. The packaging is cute too. I like the texture and I like the scent - both texture and scent of a lipstick can be either a big turn off or turn on for me. They do not dry out my lips or anything. The colors look good, but it isn't very long wearing and it comes off too easily so you have to reapply all the time. I bought a handful of them last summer for about $3 each during a big sale at VS and I like VIP the most. I wouldnt buy them at full price because it doesnt last very long at all on my lips, which is really too bad.

I bought this because my eyelids are really oily and my eyeshadow always creases regardless of the brand or quality of shadow I use. I was skeptical at first,but I got it anyway because of the rave reviews, and you know what? It works! Its pretty expensive at $17 for a little tube, but you only need a little bit for shadow insurance to work. Its a good investment if you have oily eyelids and I consider it one of my essential msut have beauty products. I would definitely buy it again.

All of the colors are so beautiful! I have 3 now: earthly riches, green mix, and bought the pink split today and I oohed and ahhed over the gorgeous colors along with total strangers at the store. I'll probably break down and get odd couple or sea and sky one day (I want all of them!!!), too. I love how the color catches the light and has sort of a luminous pearlized quality to it. Pink split is a pink with a gold pearlescence with bronze/blueish/dark plum marbling. Green mix is a spring green/yellowish pearl with a gold/blackish/sea green marlbing. Earthly riches has a dark purple with gunmetal-ish marbling. I want them all!

Helps smooth out split ends
The leave in protector really does make my split ends smoother and softer to the touch. My ends are quite rough and split due to damage and lack of trimming and this stuff really smooths and softens them.

I have all three long term relationship products. I attribute the shine and manageablity of my hair to the conditioner in particular. It also makes my hair feel very silky. It also has a nice silky/satiny texture that's different from other conditioners I've used, plus a nice, but not overpowering scent.

I've been using this shampoo along with the conditioner and split end protector recently. I'm a fan of all herbal essences products beacause I just love the scents. It leaves my hair reasonably shiny and when I first used this line, my hair was noticeably easier to brush and less tangly. I did notice that it isn't as sudsy as I'd like it to be, but it may be due to the hard water in my region.

I got this along with the UD blush brush and like the blush brush this is soooo soft. It such a pleasure to use it. I use this for bronzer mostly and it applies it evenly. Very pleased with my purchase.

Cool and Refreshing On My Lips
I like mentha lip shine mainly for the cooling effect it has on my lips and the peppermint scent. I've been using it alot for several weeks and I'm starting to appreciate it more since I've come down with a nasty cold. the shine doesnt last so long, and I consider the consistency to be a little sticky, but I love the cooling sensation from the peppermint oil on my lips and the fresh scent and taste- both very soothing and refreshing.
