These are fantastic! I've been using these for years. They moisturize better than anything I've ever used. I carry one with me at all times. They are especially needed when I am riding on the back of a motorcycle. The wind does a real number on my lips! It's hard to choose a favorite flavor. Right now I am using soda ones in a tin that I got at Target. I will be buying these for years as long as they are still making them.
I love this! I also get many compliments when I wear it. I don't understand the bad reviews for this. To me, it smells a bit spicy, not sweet. I guess it just doesn't smell right on some people.

I bought this gel to replace my St. Ives Eye & Face Stress Gel. That was my HG gel, but I'm running out and the product has been discontinued, aww.....Anyway, the Vaseline gel is an ok substitute. I tried it under my eyes and instantly felt a cooling sensation - then it was burning! There was no red under my eye and the burning stopped. Wow, my skin is smooth now! I like the smell too-very summery. This bottle should last me a long time. I'll probably buy it again when I run out.

I purchased this from a rec on the board. I was hoping for a nice, poppy color. Either my skin is too pale or this lipstick was too red. I felt like I should be walking in the streets at night. Way too bright for me. Sorry, I will not be buying this again. Still on the hunt for a nice poppy color that's not too bold...

Although this product smells nice, it doesn't show up on my light skin. I was hoping it would. I have been looking for a nice peach blush for years. I do use it as an all over powder for the oil on my skin. I don't think I'll buy it again.
I've been looking for a peachy blush for years. I used to use an Avon one, but it was discontinued. This one is great, no shimmer and it lasts on my pale skin. Not cheap, but it works and looks fine on me. I will purchase this again.
I've been using this product for years. I can't find around here anymore so I have to order it online. The price is reasonable. I use it dry and it does a nice job of matting my face. I hope the company continues to make it.
Of all The Body Shop butters, this is my favorite for dry skin. It absorbs quickly and lasts all day. I personally think it's expensive and the smell a bit strong, but it works on my dry skin. I'd buy it again if it went on sale.

I've also bought these so many times I've lost count. These are great for taking off makeup when I need to do it quickly. I keep mine in the original plastic case, so they don't dry out. I've tried others, but these work the best and my face feels clean. These feel great after I cut the grass as well...lol....
This used to be my HG perfume in the 90's. I do remember sneezing a lot when I wore it. I always got compliments on it though... I tried it again recently and I sneezed again and thought of how strong the perfume really is. I guess I just can't wear it anymore.
I really like this. It's not like the glitter nail polishes of the 80's that I'm used to. The glitter is more fine. Granted, I used 4 coats to get the look I wanted! My bf even complimented me on it and I didn't expect that. He said it looked like I was in 8th grade, but it looks good on me... I like it better than the CG Wireless. Reminds me of Kirk's Folly products.

I saw an ad for this in a magazine I was browsing so when I saw I thought I'd give it a try. I've been using the same deo for over 20 years. The packaging is great because it stands out on the shelf so the product is easy to find. Great price too. Smells nice as well. Kept me dry all day. I will buy this again!
I've tried all kinds of heel things. I'd rather use my 'Pretty Feet & Hands' lotion than this. With that, my skin rubs right off. This, it doesn't. I will not buy this again.
I have quite a few of Badger products. This one is probably the one I use the most. In the winter I use it under my nose when I sleep. I have allergies and this helps let me breathe when I sleep. It smells minty-earthy and yes it's greasy, but it's supposed to be. I love the graphic on the tin too. This stuff really works!

I don't really like the smell of this. I can't even describe the smell. Rancid, old baby powder maybe? But even so, I really like how this moisturized my hands. I used this religiously after I had surgery on my left hand. I had some serious dry skin after that and this body butter was the only lotion that took care of that. I just don't like the strong smell, but if I do run out of it, I'd buy it again.
