The name of this product is very misleading. It is not a scrub, but a cleanser. It clearly states this on the back of the bottle. And using it as such gave me the most pretty, glowing skin. It was just enough of a scrub to exfoliate, but it didn't rub my skin raw. And I loved the smell! I must have used another product once that had the same scent because it reminds me of spring. If this wasn't long discontinued, I would buy it again.
Styling Products -Garnier - Fructis Style Sky-Hi Volume Mousse

Crap, crap, crap! I really wanted to like this. But it gave me no noticable volume. If anything it weighed my hair down. I tried it with air-drying my hair to give me some nice waves, and my hair looked awful. The only thing I liked about this was that great Fructis scent. But I can buy better DS mousses that smell just as good.

This definitely weren't the worst wipes I've ever used. I used these every day, twice a day for 3 weeks. I felt they did a decent job at getting my MU off, but I still needed a separate remover for my eye MU. But what I actually liked about these wipes is that they didn't break me out. actually my skin looked pretty good while using them. If I needed wipes again, I would buy these again.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Jojoelle Body Butter in Pink Bombshell

This was a pretty basic body butter. Sure, it moisturized. but it was also quite greasy. I liked the scent though. Pink Bombshell was a soft floral that wasn't at all cloying. I would buy another product in this scent, but I wouldn't get the butter again.

I was pleasantly surprised by this eye cream. I'm 33 and I'm just starting to see some fine lines around my eyes. When I used this my lines were not nearly as noticeable. This didn't do a thing for puffiness or dark circles, so if you're looking for a product to help with that, look elsewhere. But if you're like me and needing some early prevention for fine lines and wrinkles, look no further than your local drugstore and this little gem.
i was extremely wary before I tried this because I hated the Extra Body conditioner. I was pleasantly surprised. I came to love this shampoo. It gave my hair just a bit of bounce and noticeable body. It didn't ever weigh it down. It smelled fresh and clean. And here's the kicker - it even managed to cut through and the dirt, grime and sweat that my hair goes went through on a daily basis while I was using this. Sold!
This is my HG of powders! I stopped buying the loose version because I use it up so fast. I can go through a pot of this in a month. So I'm now I'm using the compact version and like it just as much, if not better. I work for BE and this is so far the only product I can't live without.
This isn't the worst cleanser I've ever used, but it's far from the best. This dried out my skin a bit, and I was constantly breaking out while using this. Nothing major, but enough to be annoying. At this price, I just guess I expected something a bit better than this. Won't be repurchasing.
My mom gave this to me after it didn't work for her in clearing her blackheads. I'm not quite sure what this product IS good for, because clearing blackheads or scrubbing isn't either of them. The salicylic acid in this doesn't sit on the skin long enough for it to clear up blackheads or zits. And the cream base is too dense and the scrubby particles are too far apart to make this a decent scrub. I used it up, but I'm glad to say I've found a better scrub in a bottle of L'Oreal's Turning Point scrub.
I'm not sure if you can buy a full-size of this or not. I got mine at a hotel. (I can't remember which one.) But it's actually a pretty decent conditioner. Is it the best I've ever used? Not even close. But that doesn't mean it's not good. My hair is fine, but there's a lot of it. This made it soft and manageable. It also smelled really good; just very light and clean. I would definitely buy a full-size if I could find it.

I just tried a sample of this, but my skin loved it! After just one day of usage, my skin looked brighter. And it felt like silk going on! I may have to break down and buy a full-size.
Treatments -Bare Escentuals - Active Cell Renewal Night Serum
Jubilee 9/13/2012 4:03:00 PM
I wanted to like this. Really I did. But after putting this on my skin every night for 2 weeks I saw zero improvement in my skin. Zip. If anything my skin was worse. I started breaking out near the end of the two weeks. I never really felt like it soaked into my skin either. It felt like it just sat on top of my skin and made it sticky. at this price, I just won't be trying this again.
Bath Treatments -Origins - Spring Fever Bath Effervescence

If only Spring Fever smelled as nice on me as it did in this product! This made my baths so nice. It made my skin soft. And it would make my bathroom smell heavenly! I can't really attest to it's fizziness. You're supposed to put this in still water, not running. But I have a leaky faucet that constantly runs, so I think that stopped the fizzies. but I would still use it if I could get it again for the smell alone.
I received a sample of this in my last order from Naturopathica. I'm surprised there are no reviews for it yet, because it's an awesome product. I applied it 3 nights in a row after cleansing. By the third day I was having makeover done at work and when I had my makeup off, one of my co-workers commented that my skin was so bright and clear. Sold!
This product is discontinued and extremely hard to find.It always went quickly and for very high prices everytime I was it on ebay. I thought that would mean since it was so difficult to find that it would be a really good product. Not so. This stuff did NOTHING. It didn't moisturize. It didn't depuff. It didn't make dark circles less noticeable. It didn't even diminish fine lines. Nothing. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why it's discontinued.
