UUUUUUUUUUUGHHHH!!! Stanky! I hate this perfume. It gives me a headache andmakes me sneeze. And this green note everyone is talking about dries down like a cross between BO and soured milk for me. Definately not going to repurchase.
You know what? For a cheap drugstore mascara, thisis not bad at all. I'm a high-end makeup girl but grabed this on my last trip to London because I was desperate to buy everything in Boots. (Ilivein Austria and theirs not much to buy at the drugstore. I miss my Walgreens). IF I apply this carefully, I get tons of volume and I like the way it sepearates my lashes (sort of like Featherlash). It doesn't really lengthen taht much on me and no curl but really it's not bad!
Ok, I admit it, I'm a product whore. I've always wanted to try Keratase but thought "Could any shampoo be worth 20 dollars a bottle? It has to be hype". It didn't help when I read Paula's review of this shampoo in which she declared it a basic shampoo and the down market L'oreal product you get at the drugstore was just as good. But curiosity got the better of me and I purchased this volume shampoo along with the matching conditioner. I have long, oily at the top dry at the ends, babyfine hair. In the wnter, fly-away static hair is a big problem. Not anymore. Seriously, this is the best shampoo and conditioner I've ever used. My hair is shiney and bouncy and stays that way all day. In fact, it seems to get better as the day wears on! Not only that, but my hair always feels soft and looks like I got it done at the salon. Time after time. If you have fine hair, please try this. It really is worth the money.
I really like this scrub. I've been using it as my daily cleanser day and night in conbination with Paula's choice BHA 2% soultuion and the AHA 8%. Some people have commented on the scrubbing beads. People you don't want a grainy gritty scrub with beads like walnut shells for your face. It will make microtears in your skin! I get major exfoliation from the Paula's pruduct so I need something to get the dead cells off and this scrub does the trick for me. It's gentle, it smells good. I also have very oily cystic acne prone skin and this hasn't caused a break out with me-always a bonus!

I use the 2% BHA solution in the day under my makeup but at night I use the 8% AHA. These two products have caused an about face (no pun intended) in my skin! I have extremely oily cystic acne prone skin. I've been using these products for two month and only got one cyst on my chin around "that time of themonth" THe difference was it didn't stay under my skin and fester for 3 weeks like usual. This time it just popped up and went away in a day or two-no popping needed. The 8% AHA does sting a little. My skin is sensitive but I do well with these products. Just be careful not to overdo it. The AHA will get rid of red marks left by old acne faster, it will soften and even out your skin tone, and if you have fine lines (like I do), this product will diffently help you. THese two products are my holy grail in skin care. I find that people who like BP(Benzoyl Peroxide) and tolerate it well, usually have trouble with BHAs and AHAs. I am a person who can't use BP at all and BHAs and AHAs really do the trick. However, I have never found another brand that works like Paula's. Thanks!! It's made a big difference in the quality of my life.
I too bought this based on all wonderful reviews and I am a sucker for good reviews. I have dark brown eyes and brown hair and this just didn't work for me at all. I think it's just because I also have dark underexe circles and this color just seem to accentuate it. I also found it very hard to blend. I'm glad it's so pretty on everyone else though.

I bought the 2% Soloution. I had been using CP Exfol and it was good but holy cow! this product is absouluty amazing. I have extremely problem skin that is oilier than a grease slick and horrible cysts on my chin and some times between by eyes. People, I saw a difference in ONE application of this. It cut down the oil and made my skin feel so soft. I haven't had a cyst since using this. Definately a HG product for me.
I bought this after reading all the raves on MA. And why not? It's so cheap and it it looks FANTASTIC. I only usually wear high-end makeup but I'm telling you this is same quality as NARS at a fraction of the price. Like the others said- a little goes along way. EDIT 1/28/2004. Now that I have seen Orgasm and played around with it, I don't think the Jane product is like it at all. To me, Blushing glow has more of a peachy/orangy quality and the Orgasm has more pink to it. Plus Orgasm has shimmer and theres not much in the Blushing Glow at all. Definately a good addition to anyones make up bag but it's NOT orgasm.
I really love this shampoo. I have baby fine hair and this leaves my hair shiny and nice. I'm not crazy about the smell. it reminds me of a fruity wine cooler but I still like how it makes my hair look. I use this in conjunction with KMS Amp volume and i get wonderful results! Plus the bottle is big and it has lasted me a long time now.
