This is by far the best product I've found. It absorbs very quickly and leaves my nails and cuticles looking well-groomed. I have extremely dry hands and nails, which are getting more so as I age (52). Solar Oil makes them feel moisturized and comfortable. I've had my bottle for over a year, and there's plenty left before I need to re-purchase (you bet I will!).
Skincare - Body -Avon - Moisture Therapy Extra Strength Cream

Love, love, love this product! It feels silky and absorbs quickly into my extremely dry legs better than anything I've used before. It is the only product that works on my daughter's alligator-like elbows. Great for cuticles, too! I like it so much better than Eucerin, and it's way cheaper!
I bought the bronze color, which really brings out the green in my eyes. I find that the pencil tugs a bit and doesn't stay put on my bottom lids very well, even when I first apply powder. However, the color is flattering enough that I am willing to re-apply during the day when necessary. I'd add a point if the pencil were automatic.
I have used this product for years and like it best in the warm, humid months. I need to use a light hand when applying or else it looks heavy and flat. The color never changes, and it absorbs excess oil very well.

I'm not sure if the product has been changed, because the item I bought had no discernible fragrance. I love it: the texture is rich but not heavy, and it really softens without feeling oily. My only lament is that it doesn't seem to be available with an SPF; that would seal the deal for sure!
I just bought this today on a whim and am so far very pleased. The color looks great on my fair skin (I chose the lightest shade, #1), and it really looks flawless. It feels moisturizing, which is fine for me in the winter. I found the pump to dispense a bit too much, so I'll have to adjust my finger pressure! Update one week after purchasing: I'm deducting a lippy because the product doesn't seem to be as long-wearing as I'd hoped. I was able to re-apply without caking, which was a plus.
I have been using the Light Reddish Brown for a few years now. I love the fact that it's not drippy, and the product is well suited to my hair texture. It feels soft and shiny and looks very natural. My only complaint is that the color fades so dang fast, and my temples go gray in a week's time after coloring. I have heard that red colors are the hardest to maintain, and I am also totally (and prematurely) gray! Between coupons and frequent deals at CVS, the price can't be beat.
Cleansers -Olay - Total Effects Anti Aging Anti Blemish Cleanser

I have been using this product for over a year now and absolutely love it. It keeps my pores clear and never dries out my skin. It feels fresh and rinses off easily and completely. I always follow cleansing with a moisturizer, but I don't feel like my face will crack if I don't!
I use Natural Taupe and love the color, staying power, and the spoolie. Unfortunately, the packaging leaves plenty to be desired, partucularly the caps: they crack easily. I also tend to place the caps on the wrong end and wind up whacking off the pencil tip...Overall, I think it's a great product for the money! Update: i just wasted my money on 2 pencils, neither of which would turn to release more product. What a shame; I really liked this!
I was not at all impressed with this product, despite the advertising campaign promises. It neither moisturized nor illuminated my eyes one bit. I actually stopped using the product before it was half gone.

I feel very mixed about this product. I love the feel and texture but am not completely happy with the coverage - I wish that it did a better job of evening out my skin tone. I also wish that Cover Girl would expand its range of colors - most of them are far too pink for me. I'm not sure if I'll purchase this again.

I absolutely love this product! The coverage is truly flawless: it obliterated my redness, uneven tone, and fine lines and looked great throughout the day. I wish that it were less expensive, but a little goes a long way. I highly recommend it for us middle aged gals!
