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!

Yes, this has always been that classic perfume that everyone loves..light, airy, slightly musky..it's definitely got a distinct smell that seems to be universally flattering. I say get a sample of this and try it. If you already wear it and love it, but want something just a little bit different...then I say try Burberry Body. It holds the elements of cashmere mist that we all love but gives it a modern day boost....

Fell in Love, After 3 Weeks Fell Out...
UPDATE: After three weeks of use I'm pretty upset to say that though my face did look better at first, I got these weird dry spots around my eyebrows that became inflamed after using this consistently. I NEVER get any type of breakouts or dry skin, nor is my skin sensitive. This burned my face in a weird way and made it inflamed. I was 100% in love with this product and couldn't rave enough about how great my skin looked and now I have these really noticeable spots. I had to update my review. I guess try it but be careful. I also recommend dotting this around the face instead of rubbing it on like a lotion. (originally rated this a 9).

Use Forever Love Forever
This is the most effect way to cleanse your pores. I've been using this product for years and it does such a great job that it should be a basic staple in every beauty closet. I don't have enough good words for it so I'll just say highly recommended. Period.

Good and Bad, but More Good
I'm not going to say that this is perfect mask, but I will say that it actually does illuminate the skin and leaves a lasting effect of overall smoothness/glowing. So I would call it effective. BUT, it's not that easy to use. First off..if you put too much on, it will NEVER dry and eventually you will have to wash it off which makes it not so effective. Also, if you put too little on then it will sort of break apart when you try to peel it off and you may have to rub it off, which will also make it less effective. So, be careful about putting on an even, thin layer under which you cannot see your skin but also doesn't feel heavy. Also, if you get it on your eyebrows, hair around forhead, etc...it will pull it out and can be very painful so follow the directions and put it around your mouth/eye area as instructed. At the end of the day, when used correctly over time it will really help your skin...it's just REALLY specific in directions. If you have the patience then I say you must use it. Also a tip, I use a biore nose mask (I love it too much to let go) and put this mask around the rest of my face...I feel the mask doesn't clean the pores on my nose better than the strip but is great for the rest of my face. I can see how this product would irritate sensitive skin. As much as my review looks negative because of the effort put into this mask, I still swear by the lasting results.

Love the Scent...Good Thing Because It's Strong/Clingy
This is a surprisingly delicious and somewhat fresh and girlish scent...kind of reminiscent of whatever the air smelled like when you had your first high school crush. Its warm and inviting...and this is a lot coming from me because I really didn't like the first scent (purple bottle). But this is absolutely amazing. The only problem that I have is that this is extremely strong and clingy. I kind of wish it's spritzed out a little less...but still went all over. It's very clingy and lasts forever, which is sort of good for me. That's the only con and for some that isn't really a con.

Pretty Good Cleanser, A Basic
This isn't my go to cleanser because I am currently in love with oil cleansers (think DHC and Origins), but this is a great basic for those days when your skin feels a little sensitive and you want a little suds on your face without drying your skin out. I've had the small bottle on hand for over ten years and it's just as gentle as the oils. It does remove makeup fairly well...not the best, but pretty well..but overall,it's a good morning cleanser for anyone. I would say try it....its a little bit addictive.

I received this as a free sample with something else I had ordered...opened it right away and loved it upon application. It was moisturizing, felt good and smelled pretty good for something natural. But then i wore it for a while and it seemed to leave a weird residue on my lips and after my lips went dry it sort of caked up on my lips. Not a great feeling. It was promising upon application and then it just became something not so great. Wear with no intention to wear for a long period of time, meaning don't wear this.
