I'm just going to flat out say it - what really worked for me about this lipgloss is it did not cause me any irritation or dryness and that's a PLUS for me. To be honest I bought this product out of frustration, due to a recent lip irritation to certain well known over the counter brand lip product. Therefore, I spotted this shiny self claimed organic product... I hesistated then bought it. I was somewhat satisfied because it wasn't too sticky and the fruity scent wasn't too overpowering. Acceptable! However, poor color selections not much to choose from. The colors looks beautiful from the outside, but once you put a layer on the lips the color started fade into a lighter color, like the other reviewer mentioned it's almost white-ish. I also have to agreed to be careful of what color you pick, because it can be way too shimmery to a point the original color kind of fades in to it. Price wise I think it's a bit over priced for a product that have little selections, I think it's because of the over-rated word "Organic".

A good multipurpose powder
Here's another impressive wet n wild product that I've used. This powder goes on smooth without that matte, boldness of an eyeshadow - it's just plain light with a subtle hint of color... very natural. I know this is a body powder, but one day I needed a quick fix to brighten up the eyes, and this powder did the trick. I was very surprised how light it was, and the best of all the shimmer is not intense - that was my eyeshadow of the day!!! It's like magic dust sprinkle a bit here and there you get the natural yet refreshing look. Except the container is a bit boxy... no complains.

I agreed with all reviewers here - this mascara never flakes or smudge and yes... it does clumps a little bit, but in my honest opinion I will use drug store anytime over Lancome's Definicil mascara. It's a very convenient brush because it's thin and bendable other than that it's just an expensive prodcut, that have the same effects like a drug store brand masscara. The reason I bought it was because celebrities raves about it, especially one of my favorite actress Kate Winslet uses it - I'm like it couldn't go wrong. After one used I looked at the mirror and I'm like where's the "woah" effect? brushed on another application...felt like I didn't even have anything on!? I personally have to reapply a few times enable to lengthen to get that full jet black lashes look, but I have to say this mascara is easy to remove, so no rubbing over and over til your eyelashes comes off on my part. I eventually put it aside, and went back to my regular drug store mascara and use Lancome sparingly... when I feel like it.

Got to give a thumbs up to natural
I have to say this lip shimmer didn't really do much for me, due to color selections they offer don't quite match my skin tone; the shades are either too dark or too light or a bit too shimmery? However, I do like the fact that this lip shimmer is "natural" which means suitable for anyone who don't like gunky, perfumy or sticky lipsticks or glosses. So far the only shade I like is Cocoa, it has a nice neutral shimmery color.

Great eye cream... that wasn't for me
This is a good eye cream that I ever purchased; it effectively moisturized and softens lines under eye area. However, I kept getting whitehead once in a while when used consistently daily (I have to go to a facialist to get the whitehead professional extracted). Even though I like cream, I ended up giving it to a friend of mine who also ended up getting a couple of whiteheads on top of eyelids. My conclusion to this situation is probably my friend and I both have combination oily skin type...maybe that causes the break out when moisturized!? It's a bummer for me, but might be a treat for you. I would definitely recommend this product to someone who's looking for a good eye cream. Unfortunately, since the product broke me out I have to give this product a lower or mutual score.

These cleansing cloths are very convenient especially on travel - The Dove's cloths are bit creamy and soapier, it's lathers up in an instant and cleans well. There's one thing I noticed between other cleansing cloths is Dove's seems to be a bit more moisturizing. (So I guess it does live up to it's claim by labeling hydrating on it's box!) However, I do feel a bit wasteful by tossing a huge sheet (that you could probably use a few times) and doesn't quite remove all makeup (such as mascara).

What do I expect from an eye make-up remover is to remove moderate to stubborn mascara or water-proof mascara - and this product did not do the trick for me. As creamy as it is thinking that make-up would come off easily, but it didn't work as well for water-proof mascara and I have to reapplied it a few times and yet to get it all removed. I returned it the next day.

I have to say this is not a bad product with a great deal of $2.99 a bottle. I have curly hair and sometimes I need a certain amount or strength of a gel that can slick parts of my hair, and guess what it did the job "A" OK!! Not only it smells great but it's also alcohol free!! No stiffness no flakes that's another plus right there. I would buy this again.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Body Moisturizer - A pleasant surprised
I found an alternative winner - This dermatologist recommended lotion leaves my skin soft and supple, you'll feel it after one use the lotion soaks right in your skin!! Makes your skin really supple, and ashy rough spots gone in seconds. The ingredients are less complicated (which contain more glycerin and a couple of natural ingredients)than other greasy chemical filled lotions. This lotion is a bit expensive for an over the counter product, but it's worth the buck a little bit goes a long way. To sum it up it's Fast absorbants, non-greasy, and moisturizing. I'll definitely buy it again.

L'Oreal Futur-e Moisturizer
I used the one for normal and oily skin - Mixed feeling. It's a lightweight moisturizer with vitamin e and SPF in it, and the price is affortable. Unfortunately, it didn't work out for me I eventually broke out. My skin started to get a bit sensitive over maybe 2 weeks of use little red patches here and there, then it's starts to get a bit greasy. Not that it's a bad product, it's probably my skin is not reacting well with it's ingredients. In conclusion, I will not buy this product again.
