Like the formula, hate the brush
Price wise, the product is fine. I even like the formula, but I cannot stand this brush. Its too big in all the wrong places. The bristles are not extended long enough to catch my inner lashes and therefore creates a globby mess. I was afraid that I would stab myself in the eye with it. I will not purchase this again, primarily because I don't like the brush.

I gave it one star because it really smells like lemon & sage, which is great and relaxing. And and another star for price-to-amount ratio. But that's it. The product is water based, so it dries quickly and leaves a watery, sticky, not-so-good feeling on your hands afterwards. I had to run and wash my hands after I used it. About 10 mintues after application, or maybe less, its completely dried up and your left wondering if you even applied anything to your feet in the first place. It does NOT help restore moisture like it claims.

I'm a little scared....
Beacause I think this is actually improving my skin. I have to be honest, I hate the price, but I've noticed that ever since I started using this that my skin has started to look and feel better. Its been a slow process but its noticiable. Its softer in the morning, my makeup actually looks better throughout the day, and I'm starting to think I might have to get addicted to Estee Lauder products.

didn't work for me
I used this on a scar that was left on my arm from a Smallpox shot. It did absolutely nothing but peel off. I didn't get rid of the scar, it didn't even make it less noticable, at all. A complete waste of money.

A new favorite
I love this product. I normally use the original cold cream to remove makeup and still leave my skin feeling soft and I now I love this one. I love the cucumber scent- it is not overpowering. Another thing I like about this one is that it's not as heavy as the cold cream. With the cold cream I have to wash it off twice, with this cleanser I only need to do it once and my skin it still feeling soft afterwards. I have oily skin so I rub this in with my makeup still on, wash off with soap and then follow up with the Ponds Classic dry skin cream -- it leaves my skin moisturized so that I'm not overproducing oil and breaking out. Its not irritating and very affordable. I'm just beat myself up when I think about all the money I spent in Sephora on cleansers that dried my skin out and made my breakouts worse. I don't think I'll use anything else.

I love the brush
After having to toss out a hardly used bottle of Great Lash, a friend recommended I give this one a try. I love the brush. Its pretty big, which I thought would be an issue because my lashes are a little scarce. The brush pulled them up and out and was even able to grab some of the smaller ones on the innner corner- which equals extra bonus points in my book. It separated my lashed without clumping. I think It will work well with false lashes also, so I can't wait to give that a try. I'm overal happy with this purchase.

Gave it a second chance...regretted it
This is my second time trying Great Lash and I am still disappointed. I figured that I should give it another try--I initially used it a few years ago, when I first started hearing all the hype. The only positive thing I have to say about it is that its cheap / affordable. It does nothing for my lashes, they look pretty much the same way they do using clear mascara or none at all. I've been wearing makeup for a while now, and there are others that I've used that would have my lashes looking Amazing...so I'm pretty sure its not just me... Anyway, I give up. I won't purchase this or any other of the Great Lash brand anymore.

Interesting idea, but not for me
I like the idea of being able to spray on my moisturizer when stepping out of the shower and I am a greatful for being given an opportunity to test it but I don't think I would purchase this for myself. The Pros: I like the design of the bottle, it fits very easily into your hand so that its easy to use. It smells very pleasant, a nice light hint of shea butter. And the bottle doesn't lie, its not greasy at all. Here are the Cons: when you spray it, it's very inconsistent. It doesn't seem to come out of the bottle evenly (but that's okay becuase you have to rub it in anyway) and its extremely COLD (lol). I have a hard time using it with my non-dominant hand and getting it on my back. It just seems easier to use regular lotion. It doesn't seem to last as long as regular lotion either maybe because its a) just a moisturizer and b) not has dense and heavy as regular lotion. I can see myself using it in the summer when I'm in a rush and don't want to look super greasy or shiny, but not right now where I have to dress in layers.

I used this product on dry hair after washing with the corresponding shampoo and conditioner. It felt greasy on my hands but it was not greasy in my hair. It didn't necessarily offer much shine, but my hair is light and soft. It wasn't heavy on my hair at all, not like some other creams that I've used. I like it better than other products (ie. cheaper products) I've used because of the end results. Its been about 3 days and my his just as soft as it was when I first used it. I think the trio is worth the price.

I WISH that I came here and read the reviews before I purchased this. It only works for about 1 day. It goes on very thick and then in about 2 days your color starts to come off. I just recently used it and on some of my nails here are bubbles and on a few of the others, they look cracked, as if the color is going to come off all at once. I'll make sure to read the reviews before I purchase the next one.
