I saw the results fast!
I was worried my extra sensitive skin would be angered by this product, but it wasn't. I noticed in less than a week smoother skin with much more elasticity and "oomph". It can tingle a bit when you first put it on but it's not a burn. It also doesn't dry out my skin, which I like. I wasn't much of a believer of anti-aging products but this is one I do use because it works!

Tried others... by far the best.
I have super sensitive skin--flipping between dry and oily--and have tried other cleansers but this one is by far the best. I have used ones that were more expensive and ones that were cheaper, but this one does exactly what I want it to do. It doesn't make my skin burn, and always makes my face feel soft after I use it. I like the fact that the "scrubbies" are made of brown sugar and actually melt so you can't over-irritate!! It has a nice scent, and is gentle enough to use every day. I wish it was available at more locations locally for me, but at least I can find it online if I have to. BeFine products are great to begin with, but this cleanser tops them all!

My Go-To Cleanser!
I have super sensitive skin, and this is one cleanser that gives me everything I am looking for when it comes to keeping my face fresh. I like that it is foaming, easy to work with. It is very gentle on my skin, doesn't burn my eyes, and does a great job removing all of my makeup. I notice in the winter it can be just a little drying, but nothing that would deter me from using it. One bottle lasts a long time as well, even with using it twice a day. Love it!

I tried samples of this product for two weeks to see if I could use it. (I have very sensitive skin) My first thought about the product was that it burns. But honestly, it only lasts a second or two, and the more you use it, the less your skin reacts. I used it only once when two people noticed the next day that my skin looked brighter and my pores looked smaller. As "chemically" it seems, my very sensitive skin didn't get red or react terribly. I use it twice a week, and I make sure I use a mild cleanser first and follow with a mild moisturizer afterwards (I do not use any strong anti-aging products the night I use the peel). I'm very happy with this product. If it wasn't for that little bit of initial burning sensation, it would have gotten 10 stars.

Neat little gloss!
First off--don't confuse the GBG Luxe gloss with the regular GBG gloss. Luxe is much thicker with way more shine and sparkle. It also has a little brush for an applicator whereas the regular GBG has the little doe-foot sponge applicator. Great little size and can be "hooked" with another color or product to carry easily in your purse. The minty smell/taste is just enough to keep it sweet. It does go on a bit thick, but isn't too sticky and has awesome moisturizing properties. Its stay power was only medium for me. I ordered Lotus which is a nice light coral shade, Cocoa which is a deep brown/bronze and Orchid witch is a raging fuchsia. I had to return the orchid--too bright for me. But overall I liked it enough to buy a few more.

A great every day mascara
I really like this mascara. It gives my eyes a nice look for daily casual wear. It doesn't have any type of chemical smell to it and doesn't irritate my eyes (contacts) at all. It lasts all day without smudging. It is also rainproof and cry-proof! It's very easy to take off at night... I can use makeup remover or just my regular cleanser. The brush is the perfect size and makes it easy to get at the corner lashes as well as the bottom ones. And the price is always great!! My only negatives are that the package seems to run out kind of fast (I went through one in about a month) and it could be a bit more thickening. But for everyday wear and the price, it's awesome!!

Great color with no stickies!
I used to be a lipgloss snob, but Avon's Glazewear has all the features that I absolutely love. The formula is very moisturizing and long lasting without the stickiness that gets my hair glued to my lips. They have three different "styles" for the look I want--sparkle for a bit of glitz, intense for a heavier color and shine for a high gloss with a hint of color. The color choices are pretty good...warm, cool and neutral colors for everyone to enjoy. What I really like about these glosses is they have NO scent or flavor. No fake cake tastes or nasty chemical smells. Oh, and can we not forget about the killer price? My two favorites right now are Apple-Cinnamon sparkle and Intense Plum. Definitely a must-have item for your purse and makeup drawer!

Great lashes for less money!
When I first bought this mascara, I gave it to my daughter because I didn't like the brush/wand. I bought several other brands of mascara but I couldn't get the all-day wear I was looking for. For the heck of it, I grabbed the LashBlast mascara that I gave my daughter and tried it. Although the brush was a little difficult to master at first, the mascara had all day stay power without any smudging or flaking. Definitely waterproof, rainproof, sweatproof, you name it! It needs a good waterproof eye makeup remover to get it off, but that's a sign of a solid mascara. The brush still is a little bulky, but it doesn't take too long to master. Definitely worth it!!

Decent drugstore mascara!
I tend to use a high-end mascara most of the time, but I had read so many things about this one in magazines and on TV that I decided to give it a try. I bought the waterproof formula because I tend to have oily skin and didn't want raccoon eyes before lunchtime. The stay power is great. Absolutely no smudging right up until bedtime. The mascara makes your lashes really thick (maybe a bit too thick) and pretty long as well. My major complaints is that the packaging is SO darn bulky, it takes up too much space in a purse or even a makeup drawer. The brush is also to really for me--it's hard to get to the corner lashes without making a mess (it's bulky too). And it take a lot of work to get it completely off at night but I guess that means it has stay power. If the packaging was smaller, I might buy it again, but now I'm not sure...

Does the job...
My daughter came down with a nasty case of sore, cracked lips this week. I've heard great things about Burt's Bees balms so I decided to pick one up. She's not a mint fan nor a "tingly" fan, so I grabbed the honey one. I tried it first and was okay with it. It seemed a bit thick and thought it would tug at my lips, but it actually went on pretty smooth. The scent was okay for me. I can see how it wouldn't be for everyone, but I kind of liked it. My daughter, on the other hand, thought it was nasty. But she used it anyways. She was glad she did. Now she's okay with the smell and found that it was very healing for her lips. They were smooth and no longer cracked in less than two days. It's great just before bed. I would say this scent is hit or miss for most, but for what it does, it was a home run.
