This was just too wet and goopy to work with. It did not dry and left me with racoon eyes. I would not recommend this one.
I was thrilled to finally try this out. After using the entire bottle, I don't think that I will repurchase though. I was just not blown away by the moisturizing properties of this lotion. I need something more. The good thing was though, that it absorbed quickly.
Like some other reviewers here, I had the worst stinging sensation when I put this mask on. I rinsed it off immediately. I guess my skin is just too sensitive for this.
These are wonderful. I currently own the strawberry flavor, and absolutely love the smell of it. The texture is not too sticky, and it has wonderful staying power. One of the best moisturizing lipbalms out there for a dirt cheap price.
I grew up with Labello, but this is not one of my favorite formulations. I think it works best for keeping healthy lips in good condition, but it is not for seriously chapped lips. This one is a pink colored stick with a sweet smell to it. On my pigmented lips, the color did not show up, unless I literally put five coats on, which I don't recommend you do. Overall, this is a good lipbalm, but not the one to use if you have very dry lips.
These were cloying, and overall, some of the worst lipbalms I've tried. They just seemed to literally flake on my lips, there was no slip at all. After discovering that they just sat there and gave my lips a horrible purple cast, these went into the trash can (and I usually never throw cosmetics away). Good thing they were cheap.

Love the effects that this lotion gives (smoothing out rought patches, evening out skin tone), but I do not like the smell of this (very much like glue). If it had no smell, it would be perfect.

This is one of the most moisturizing body washes I have tried in a long time. The smell is a light vanilla-chocolate scent, not overpowering at all. After showering, my skin is soft and smooth, and really clean. I will definitely buy this again.
Pretty good in terms of moisturizing qualities, but the smell was nothing like lavender. For a real lavender smell, I love Avalon Organic Botanicals Lavender products. I thought this was really artificial. It's the reason that I won't buy it again.
Like one reviewer, this made my eyelids burn really badly. Whether it was an allergic reaction I don't know, but I prefer powder shadows over this. This was difficult to apply also, and very easy to overdo (I used the color Cool Beans).

This was a bit too drying for my facial skin. I used it up as a shower gel, and it worked really well for that.
This, along with the Cetaphil Moisturizing cream, cleared my skin up remarkably. I still cannot believe it. My skin has not looked this good in over 10 years. I am hooked on Cetaphil! Edit: I don't use this as much, as my skin does not respond to it anymore. I still think it is a good basic product though.
This cream saved my sensitive skin. My face was a blotchy, dry, acne-prone mess, I thought nothing would clear it up. Two weeks ago, I dropped everything and got the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser and a tube of this cream. My face has done a complete turnaround using these. This cream is so rich, yet nongreasy. It only takes a small amount to make my skin feel like silk. It moisturized, took care of the itching and the redness, and just made my skin feel so much better. Best of all, there are no new breakouts! After being disappointed with so many products, I have finally found my HG face moisturizer. I will never be without this again.

I'm not usually a fan of foody scents, but for this gloss, I make an exception. The smell is like a vanilla cake, and this gloss does not budge on me once I apply it. And the shine factor is wonderful too, the best I have found so far in a clear drugstore gloss. Really like this.
I really like the applicator that these came in, but I was not blown away by these for some reason. Raspberry smash was a bit too sticky for my taste, and I did not really care for the color either. It was almost clear on my lips. I think these are overpriced for a drugstore gloss.
