While this isn't life changing it certainly does hydrate at a good price point. I use this as my daily since it's so inexpensive and supplement with a pricier weekly mask (bumble & bumble). Great hydrated hair!

Must use the Stencil!
I've read reviews here of ladies not using the stencil- that's a mistake. The reason why Anastasia is renowned for brows and loved by Oprah is because she uses the 'golden ratio' to shape the brows. The Golden Ratio is found all over the human body, art & architecture. The most beautiful faces fit this ratio in abundance. These stencils are the only ones on the market that have that have it. While the other products in this kit are good and may improve the appearance of your brows, the brow SHAPE is essential! The stencils are for different size faces so you need to find the right one and really experiment using it - you won't be sorry. I also read reviews of ladies only using the bigger part and mixing & matching stencils - you are throwing off the ratio. Most brows are no where near the ratio and that's why some might feel the stencils don't fit but keep trying until you find one for you. These plastic ones are a bit awkward but they now sell "Brow Stix that stick on so you dont have to hold it while you brush on the pwder. Go to Sephora and use a tester to find the right shape for you and then buy just that stencil if you dont want to but a whole kit. Ladies, you must get the Golden Ratio for perfect eyebrows.

This is very natural looking and you can make it as dark as you want by layering it on. It isn't drying at all like most stains so it's my absolute favorite. During the day I just wear a few layers and people think it's my natural lip color. Let it set for a half hour before you put anything over it like chapstick or lip gloss. Lasts a long time but you generally need to reapply depending on what you eat/drink. At night I put on a a few extra layer and then a Bobbi Brown gloss over it and it lasts all night!

can't live without it
I use this weekly and generally anytime before I am going out for a special event. It completely removes the dead top layer of your skin leaving baby soft skin you didn't know you can have again! The first time you use it is probably the most miraculous. Using it too often has diminishing returns as your skin will be in good shape for at least a couple of days after use. I even use this on my hands and feet. Expensive yes, but cheaper than getting a peel at a salon or the Dr's office. This is superficial (as in top layer removal) and doesnt go deep under skin so dont stop getting those peels either. This is for maintenance

works well enough
I stopped using the Jan Marini (which also worked well)after it got pulled by the FDA. Revitalash is on the ok list as it uses a different active ingredient to make your lashes grow. Expensive yes but the tube lasts a long time. Minor tears in the beginning but consistent nightly use has kept my lashes longer than they naturally are. I dont use mascara - just a Shu Uemera lash curler and fine metal lash comb and I'm ready to go

works for me
I thought nothing would work for my under eye circles and fine lines. I've tried the more expensive stuff (Murad, La Prairie) but they just moisterize. I got samples of this at CVS and bought the tube after a few weeks. It was a VERY gradual change that takes a while so be consistent with application and be patient. It was after a few weeks that I woke up one day with a brightness and youthfulness around my eyes that definitely wasn't there before. Try getting samples first if you can at CVS or Duane Reade.

This hasto be one of the best anti-oxidants on the market. It is a cocktail of various anti-oxidants so it covers just about everything. A little goes a long way so put a thin layer under sunscreen and then makeup - also recommend their sunscreen! You don't see results overnight because it's what you DON't see that's miraculous - this is a preventative product - not a treatment

Great - only if you have pale skin color
This is probably one of the best physical sunscreens available..if you have white skin. I have dark skin and I look like a clown with this stuff on. I sadly gave it away to my pale friends. I still use it but only on the rare occassions that I'm at the beach so I don't mind if I look like I have chalk on myself. Skinceuticals has a similar sunscreen that goes on white but then becomes transparent. Use this if you can
