Good, Basic Eye Cream
This eye cream is probably best for those in their 20's or early 30's, with no real concerns ie. wrinkles, crow's feet, etc. This is a good, basic moisturizer with antioxidients, but I don't see it performing miracles. I liked it a lot - it moisturized the area and even felt a little firmer/tighter. My eyes look great! This product claims to lessen fine lines, and I agree that it probably would as initial fine lines can be caused by dryness, and this product would certainly resolve that issue. I am 31 and am sure I will be looking for a stronger/anti-aging product in the next few years, but in the meantime, this one is a keeper.

I purchased a trial size of the Biolage Colortherapie Color Care Conditioner - thank goodness it was only trial size. The conditioner was thin and runny. I left it on for the 1-3 minutes, and it did absolutely nothing. My hair was tangled. I had to use a spray detangler to avoid pulling out clumps of hair. I bought this at Ulta and I am not sure if I got a bad bottle or what, but I am returning it! Ick, The only good thing about it was the signature Biolage smell.

Sort of Impressed
I was so thrilled when I found this polish! It was in my budget (.93 at my local Walmart) and was the perfect color I was looking for! It was a deep, dark plum; almost black. The brush is very nice and holds just the right amount of polish. The nail polish itself is nice and easy to work with. I applied the standard two coats (after a base coat of Revlon polish that I already had) and the color was so beautiful. It was shiny and had great coverage. I then applied two coats of top coat. However, by the third day, I had some "feathering" at the tips of my nails, and by day four, some actual chips that had to be repaired. The problem is 1. they shouldn't advertise this as long wearing and 2., dark polish is difficult enough to apply and clean up the nails and nail beds from any errors, that I sure wouldn't want to have to apply this color twice a week. I was really hoping it would last at least one week, but it hasn't. I even applied extra top coats after it started feathering. Maybe next time I will apply a top coat every day. I would still use it and buy more in additional colors, but wish it would last longer.

Am I reviewing the same product?
I am definately a beauty on a budget! But I was not too impressed with this product. I tried the Mandarin scented wash and it was sort of globby - each time I use it, I squeeze just a little, and a whole bunch comes out. It is sort of like a stiff, clumpy gel. It does leave my skin a little on the drier side, but that really isn't even my main complaint. I didn't like the consistency (it ends up making me go through the product too much) or the amount of lather. By the time I am 3/4 done in the shower, the lather is gone and I have to add even more. The smell is okay; I can smell it on me after the shower. The price is okay - I paid $1.97, but another reviewer said $1. I'd like to know where she purchased it, because for a $1 it is completely worth it, but for $2, I can pay just a dollar more and get a better quality product. My all time favorite body wash is by Olay, I think it is called Winter Dry Skin, or something like that, but it is almost $7, but is at least twice as much product, and considerably better quality.

Great product! And an even better bargain...
LOVE this product. Before this, I was using Got 2 B's Mousse (After Party I think). Tresemme is SO much better! It has a nice, clean smell and is not nearly as sticky as the other mousse. The other mousse left my hair in a rats nest no matter how little I used, plus it smelled bad. This one, I just use 2 large poufs and I get great volume; doesn't even matter what brush I use or whether I use velcro rollers or not. I have very thick, long hair and this worked just great for me.

AKA No-clump mascara, but nothing else...
Not a super original mascara. It is basically a mascara brush in a tube. It takes some adjusting. It is great with clumps - but it is hardly because of the formula. After all, it is a mascara COMB to begin with. I would expect not to have clumps. However, the lengthening properties are disappointing. Most mascara formulations are mostly the same, give or take, but it is the brush/wand and the technique of the user that makes the most difference. I was not impressed with this product. I applied two coats and my lashes were very natural looking, but not very extended. It didn't really do anything much at all.

After reading the reviews, I thought for sure this would be a great drugstore mascare. Not even close... It didn't lengthen my lashes by much at all, nor did it make them more voluminous. It did, however, flake under my eyes. It was too "natural" looking for me and did not bring out my eyes.

I had a coupon and thought I would try it. There are no lengthening properties in this mascara and the wand is a little weird - takes some getting used to. There are better mascaras out there - department store and non-department store brands.

Not enough moisture or smell...
This product is just okay.... It feels moisturizing when using, but afterwards my skin felt a little tight. I love the Cherry Almond smell, but it isn't enough. When my boyfriend used it, he didn't even know there was a smell to it. You really have to intentionally breathe DEEP to even catch a whiff. In my area, it is hard to find, which is a negative.

Keeps oil at bay and feels nice. It has some color to it, and I am not sure why. It's almost like a tinted moisturizer with more tint than actual moisture. It works well, and I do like the little bit of coverage it offers. If I put too much on, though, it seems masky so I have to watch that.
