Dried Hair, Not Clean, Bad Smell
I tried this shampoo after reading loads of great reviews and have to say that I was highly disappointed. Out of the bottle, I didn't like the distinctive astringent smell and after putting it in my hair and washing it out I didn't like the way my hair felt...really dry. Nor did this shampoo take care of any flakes. It actually irritated my scalp some more. I dont have a serious flake problem, but if this shampoo could have made it worse then it probably did. Not a fan at all.

Not To Be Underestimated
I love love love love love this product. I have pretty nice skin, but this takes it to the next level. I received a sample of this item in a sephora giveaway bag and decided to use it one night after a facial...all I can say is wow. After one week of use, my skin was brighter, clearer, vibrant...one word: very young! It goes on really light and you think it won't do anything. It also burns on newly waxed or threaded skin which can be a little bit scary, but after using it for weeks after the initial scare I have found it to be amazing. I've never seen a product that works this quickly. I'm not a huge fan of using full skin care lines, but this was so amazing that I had to buy the 3 little wonders set...yes, the sheer transformation cream and the vitamin c collagen booster are also just as amazing. And yes, it got even better by using the whole line. Highly recommended!! I couldn't resist buying the full size bottles even though my mini samples aren't done...I guess those will be used for travel since I'm not parting from this line for a long time!

Wow! Very Impressive...except for application
I've been a dry shampoo addict for years: powders, sprays, invisible versions, white versions, versions for black hair...bumble and bumble, dove, tresemme, ojon, oscar blandi..you name it. This version is really impressive because although it's a white powder, it doesn't show on my black hair after styling AND it even allows the shine of my hair to come through! (not matte, powder head). The only downside to this item is that it is a white powder...so you do have to try to get it out and the application is really messy. Sprays are usually the easiest application but they make your hair sticky, this item really allows your hair to look like it's freshly washed and styled...maybe even better. The smell is also great! highly recommended

Love! Love! Love!
I've always been a fan of dove soap and I have to say this is their best soap yet. I'm big on exfoliation and have always used loofahs and pads of all sorts. Though I will always have my loofah obsession for that real scrub, I have been able to use this soap instead for most days of the week and it really does exfoliate your body leaving it soft, moisturized and smooth. Besides the fact that is does what it says, it also smells absolutely amazing!!! My favorite soap ever.

Unnecessary and Unimpressive
True, that a little of this goes a long way...but as a moisturizer and even that doesn't last too long. The taste is ok...but for the purpose (being a scrub) I dont think this product does it's job. For the price, it's unacceptable. Whatever scrubbing or dry skin removal is pretty uneven. Needless to say, I'm happy I got this as a present and didn't buy it or I would have been disappointed. There are better products out there for this...but if you want something that moisturizes like this then go with Carmex or soft lips...same effect.

From someone that really likes to use their fingers with makeup, if I had to recommend a brush this would be it. The bristles are soft and never fall out. The brush also makes it a cinch to apply foundation very evenly and allows the user to layer nicely if needed. I dont like that the handle is so long, but that's not such a big deal. I do love that they have now added a cap on the brush so you slide it down to use and then cap the brush when done, its removable if you dont like it, but it keeps the brush really clean. This is the only brush that I've used for years. repeat buyer.

I put this on after washing my face and I will say it's refreshing and does moisturize like you think a gel would (don't really get the "cream" part)...but I wouldn't buy this again because it seems to sit on the skin. If you do a mask and then you don't want a super heavy moisturizer, then I think you would use this (that's how I use it) but as an every day moisturizer, I dont think it really fits the bill. About an hour after use, I could rub my face and it was more like i had left remnants of a cucumber gel mask on my face. Maybe put it on and then do not put under make up? Not sure what to use this for...but gets some stars for fresh scent and cool feel.

Dove Wins Again...To No Surprise
What a great deodorant. I've been a SECRET fan forever and I'm a classic powder smell kind of person but I got a mini sample of the cucumber deodorant and WOW. Great lasting power! Great smell! Very refreshing and doesn't really rub off on my clothes (I'm from NY and definitely wear black way too often). I was so impressed with this deodorant and I also found that it moisturized my underarms really well and didn't stick so hard when trying to rub off in the shower (Secret leaves this weird dry feeling sometimes). I was very pleasantly surprised by this deodorant. My only gripe was that, like many deodorants if you leave the cap off it's dries out super easily and won't glide...this one dries out a little quicker. Also, due to the construction of the stick, it sort of fell out a lot quicker which was annoying. But the product is great. Cucumber is a fantastic scent for the summer and I'd stick with the powder invisible solid for winter. Dove steals me away once again!

I can't rave enough about this razor - it's aboslutely perfect. The shave is so smooth that it makes my skin shine after using...it's so close it looks like I dont grow any hair. Therefore, the shave lasts a lot longer and I have black hair, so you can definitely see when it starts growing. I've tried a lot of razors, but this one lasts a long times, gives the best shave and leaves your skin extra smooth. Big vote of yes for this item! I can also say that I have never gotten nicked or cut from this razor...*always use shaving cream.

I had developed some sort of rash on my eyebrows ...dry and flaky which was a bit inflamed and seemed to come out of nowhere. I dont have sensitive skin nor have I ever experienced this, but I was a little hesitant to go to the dermatologist in fear that they would recommend something too strong. I did some research online and saw review after review about this cream and egyptian magic...I got both. I tried this one on the dry spots and they were gone in 2 days. amazing. Now I just use this on elbows, on my face (though I have to powder after so there's no shine), tips of my hair...it's like an all purpose salve that I highly recommend. There is no real scent to it so you can use it in excess or as little as you want ( a little goes a long way). I definitely recommend to anyone as it heals better than even neosporin or anti bacterial creams. EXCELLENT!
