Gets the job done quickly
I usually use hair removal cream or my old school hot wax but I decided to try these because they seemed quicker and less messy. You should always only wax clean, dry skin. You take the strips (they're cut to size) and rub them in your hands to warm up the wax. Then you place a strip on your skin rubbing back and fourth to ensure it grips all of the hair. Then with one hand you hold your skin down as you pull off the strip (against the direction of hair growth). I was pleased with the results. I was a little red after, but the kit includes a soothing oil that you apply after waxing to calm the redness. I was pleased with these strips and thought that they did a great job. Not sure of the regrowth factor yet as I just used them. I used them to wax my chin and upper lip but the kit says you can also use them on your eyebrows and bikini area, although I find them oddly shaped for eyebrows. They were quick and easy and appeared to remove the majority of my facial hair. I will be buying again.

Tried and true
I have tried almost everything available to clear up my acne including lasers, Retin-A, prescription antibiotics, chemical peels, and every OTC product under the sun. This product does shrink large pimples and the painful cystic variety however it does not clear up acne. It contains 10% benzoyl peroxide which is the highest concentration available and it does a good job of clearing skin up quickly. I apply a thin layer at night and sometimes in the day as well if my skin is very broken out (which it usually is). It says on the bottle not to apply this immediately after other acne treatments so I recommend skipping the toner and using a gently cleanser. (I use Dove for sensitive skin) It is very drying so you should also use plenty of moisturizer. I used to use this back in the day too and it wasn't as harsh on my super oily teenage skin. Now it hurts a little bit, kind of dry and tight. It also makes my skin flake so exfoliating is important. It was pretty cheap I think around $5 for a 1oz tube at Walmart. I wish they could keep the strength but make it more moisturizing. If they did I'd probably give it a 10.

Does the job
I have heard a lot of hype about BB creams but most of them are really overpriced. When I saw this for about $11 I was willing to give it a try. First of all it is a beauty balm, similar to a tinted moisturizer so there is not that much coverage. I was pleasantly surprised however that it actually evened out my skin tone and made me look more "awake". It has sunscreen in it which I always a plus and it is thin and blends in fairly well. One downside is the color range is seriously lacking. I have olive toned skin and thankfully the medium/deep color works for me. Another downside is that the product is very thin and leaks out into the cap so I keep the bottle upside down to avoid this. There are some beneficial ingredients in this product and while it claims to absorb oil I still had to do my mid-day blot as usual. Overall for the price it was good and I would probably purchase it again.

Best Soap Ever!
I love, love, love this soap! It left my skin soft and smooth but not squeaky clean or dry. No tight feeling, just soft and smooth. It's actually helping my acne and I've tried everything. I heard good things about this soap but I never thought it would be so great. It cleans off all of my makeup and does a great job. I highly recommend it.

I like this product because it is light and moisturizing without feeling greasy or smelling strong. My bf actually said that he liked the scent and he's super picky so it must smell good. It's quick and easy to spray on although it comes out of the can a little cold, I just sprayed it into my hands and rubbed it in like regular lotion. It moisturized all day and left my skin soft and smooth. It doesn't say that it's unscented or that it has a specific scent and it seems to be pretty natural as far as not having a whole bunch of ingredients in it. I would definitely recommend this product!

I was really surprised
I tried this product because my mom sells Avon and sometimes she gets things for me to try, it helps if she can give an honest recommendation. Avon Clearskin Immediate Response Acne Cleanser is one of the best things I have ever used on my skin! I've tried lots of anti-acne products and this is one of the few that actually made a noticeable difference. I don't have blackheads, but I do get deep painful cystic acne, the pimples that hurt but sometimes can't even be seen. I put it on and leave it for about a minute, then rinse it off. It feels tingly and smells great. My skin is super soft and clean, without feeling dry or stripped of all moisture. I also like this product because it works on back acne as well, so I don't have to fill my shower up with more products. Hopefully my skin doesn't get used to this and stop working because I really like the results. I would consider trying other products in this line, thanks to the impressive results.

I received a full size sample of this eye cream and I was pleased with the overall results. It has a cool metal tip applicator that was especially soothing during these hot summer months. The cream itself left a little bit of residue under my eyes, didn't absorb too well, however; my very fine lines have faded and the little bit of baggage that I had has disappeared as well. I tried wearing it in the daytime, but it totally messed up my eyeshadow, as well as migrated into my eyes, making me tear up and have pretty irritated eyes, so I stuck to using it at night and it seemed to work well for me. It had a light, fresh scent which was pleasant but not overwhelming. I've never tried any of this brands products, but this one left me with an overall good impression of the brand.

I've been a fan of Calgon body sprays since at least middle school. They're cheap, come in a variety of scents and smell great. I love the Brazillian collection and the pineapple-coconut scent, delicious and oh so summery. Obviously they are body sprays and do not last as long as perfume, but I carry one around in my bag and my class always says something smells so good!

I used to love this gloss until I started using their lipstick. The gloss is kinda sticky but comes in lots of fun colors and has a nice shimmery sheen. I have long hair and it would always get stuck to my lips. If you have short hair or have it pulled back you might like it.
