This is a great lotion, especially for winter. It is hydrating, fast absorbing, and not greasy at all. It is fragrance free, which is great because fragrance usually irritates my sensitive skin or bothers my allergies, plus the boys in the house won't mind using it, too. It is very inexpensive so you will not be stingy and happily apply it liberally and often. I will put my sample in my purse, one in my desks, and by all of the sinks at my house. It does have a naturally slight medicinal smell, but it is not too noticeable and disappears quickly.

New evertday favorite
My favorite part about this deodorant is the very light, delicate fragrance. It has the minimal, clean smell of bar soap. It is moisturizing, protects me from odor and perspiration during normal activities. I did not irritate my skin personally--I am usually very sensitive, but everyone reacts differently and do different ingredients. It did ball up a bit, but is my new everyday favorite.

This is great as a primer to smooth, calm, and even out red skin tone. I used it under foundation that was too sheer and did not even out my skin. I love the fact it has spf15. It is not fragranced and excellent on sensitive skin. I love the tube packaging to keep the product sanitary and potent. I did not give it ten stars because I find Clinique's foundations (Even Better) are excellent and address my redness so I do not really need this.

This cream is fine for sensitive skin. It did not cause acne on my dry/combo skin. It is very rich, moisturizing, and creamy. It is expensive and I feel the jar compromises the integrity of the beneficial ingredients and makes it a breeding ground for bacteria--yuck! It is also messy for those of us with longer nails. It is fine as a moisturizer but I noticed no firming or lifting as it claims, and think you could find a better product for the price.

I got a sample of this with an order. I love the graphics on the tube! The gloss applies with a brush and dispenses with a click top (think clicker on a pen). It applies well, but is a bit sticky. The color was not very pigmented, which may be good because it did not apply evenly. It has a minty smell and taste which may mask your breath a bit, but eventually irritates my lips. I like the regular Tarte gloss formula with the doe foot applicator much better. Especially for the price, it was a big disappointment, considering they already developed good glosses. Why put out an inferior product?

I have been a big fan of Clinque makeup forever and have just now tried this cult favorite! It is a gel lip gloss in stick form. I like the slim profile--easier to apply without coloring outside of the lines when I'm in a hurry. It is pigmented enough to show a pop of color, but sheer enough to flatter pretty much everyone because your natural lip color blends with the shade. Clinique's Butter Shine lipsticks are also glosses in stick form, but more buttery, shinier, more moisturizing, and have a larger shade selection. These also layer well over lipsticks if you want to modify the color. It is reasonably priced, especially if you can score a gift with purchase or samples at their website. I tried the famous Black Honey which looks like a scary dark, almost black red in the tube, reads as a dusty strawberry with hint of purple on my lips a shade (think raspberry) deeper than my natural lip on my med./light warm skin tone. I think that is what the draw is. It is not long wearing, but lasts like a quality lip gloss might. I prefer the Butter Shine applied with a brush, myself, but on the other hand was not disappointed and will use it. It is fragrance and flavor free as well, which I love.

Pretty light Citrusy floral
This is a really pretty light, bright, clean, sparkling, citrusy floral. It is one of those scents that subtly lingers if you get close enough and just smells good, not overpowering or perfumy. It lasts and would be suitable for anyone/ any occasion.

I tried a sample of this. This is a really basic moisturizer that feels very greasy on the skin and does not absorb. It is definitely a nightime moisturizer as it states. It felt like I slathered Vaseline on my face and neck (and looked like it, too). I have combination skin and broke out with acne the next morning. You may want to consider it if you do not have acne prone skin or have extremely dry skin ORI would think it would be really excellent for protecting your face from wind burn if you ski, bike, or run in very cold weather. I cannot get past the gross feeling like I greased my face with lard. Sorry, but it felt really yucky.

I got a full size sample and tried this product for over a month. It is very comparable to Estee Lauder's Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator, but less expensive. It is very emollient and a quality moisturizer. I already use high qualtiy moisturizers and notice no difference in my skin. I love the cooling tip, especially to massage the sinus cavity area below my eyes. The cream is very heavy and greasy. It does not completely aborb and gunks up powder eye shadow, but works with cream eye shadows. The big turn off for me is that it inevitaby would "melt" into my eyes eventually cause stinging and tears, destroying my makeup and causing me to continue to use this only at bedtime. For this reason and the fact it does contain ingredients that can irritate the skin, I would, personally not buy this one. No cream can do anything for dark circles or firming of the skin-that is just hype. It does, however moisturize well. If you are a fan of the Lauder version, you may want to give this less expensive option a try.

Good brush, design flaw
ThesE are soft quality brushes with just the right firmness. They are inexpensive. The problem is that once you lake the caps off that keep the brush clean, it is very difficult to put the cap back on the concealer brush without ruining it. It is impossible to get the powder brush side capped again because it fluffs out and you there is no way to compress it ans get it stuffed back inside the cap. I use it at home with the foundation side capped to avoid ruining the bristles. I am disappointed I cannot re-cap it and use it for travel as I intended
