This is the best body scrub I've ever used. It smells great and it does a fantastic job of exfoliating without being too abrasive. I don't like the glass packaging given it's something you bring in the shower with you. I recommend decanting it into something less breakable. Love it!

I love this stuff! I use it all the time and it makes my skin super smooth and supple and the effect lasts a couple of days. I'm not so sure about all the crazy marketing claims that Borghese is making about it but it definitely improves the condition of my skin.
I've gotten this as one of the elements in a Borghese kit which brings the price of it down significantly and that's the only way I'd purchase this product. It's a very emollient moisturizer and it smells great. It might be too heavy for a lot of people's skin. I don't like the jar packaging and please don't believe any of the nonsense that Borghese marketing tries to put out on this product. I'd recommend it but please don't pay full price ($46.50 for 7oz) for it-- it's definitely not worth it.
I've used this cleanser off and on for years. I don't find it too drying but some skin types might. It works well and smells great. I'm not giving it a higher rating because at the end of the day there isn't anything special about it other than the fragrance and that's probably bad for your skin.
I love this polish. It's like car paint on my toes in the nicest possible way. I love love love how Butter London is bring such a standout product t a $14 price point. Take that, Chanel! There's a pile of butter polished I want to get. So many of them are so amazing. You can't go wrong. Srsly.
I really, really like this polish. It's a cool toned nude with tons of microglitter that looks fantastic in the the sunlight. On me, it's a little cadaverous yet i still love it. I bet on cooler toned people it will not have that problem. If you're cooler toned I can't recommend this polish strongly enough. If you're warmer toned you should give it a try. It's only $14-- not enough to lose yourself over but you've got so much to gain.
This is a decent eye cream. It's fairly light, not too greasy and absorbs quickly. I got a deluxe sample as a gwp and have been using it for a couple of weeks. If you buy in to all the promises that Lancome is making about it you're bound to be very disappointed and I certainly think that the product you're getting justifies the price that they are charging. Also, I prefer products that come in tubes as opposed to tubs. When I used it after using retin-a the night before I got a little stinging presumably from an active ingredient in it. Be warned if you have very sensitive skin.

Do. Not. Want. I don't understand how this product is getting any good reviews at all. It's very, very thick and leaves a visible whiteness on the skin upon application. That's from the titanium dioxide in the sunscreen and I expected it but the whiteness never seems to sink in like some other sunscreens I've used (mac prep and prime). If used on the eyelid this creases like crazy leaving you look like a reverse Edie Sedgwick. If used under the eye the results are even worse. Towards the end of the day I noticed that the sunscreen particles had migrated towards fine lines under my eyes leaving the skin looking crepey and old. I threw this product away.
This is an emollient hand cream with a pretty fruit fragrance that works very well. It leaves a slightly shiny finish on the hands that is very flattering. I like this a lot.
This is a nice lip balm with a fruity fragrance that comes in a very princessy tub. I have this in clear. It's more waxy than greasy and it works well. I like this a lot and would repurchase.
This is a very emollient/slightly greasy lip balm that comes in a pretty tin. It has a very strong rose fragrance. It works well on dry lips and I like it a lot.
I really like this product. It's a pretty standard cuticle oil gel that smells great and comes in a very princessy looking squeeze tube. I like cuticle oils that come with a brush better because they're easier to control. If this product did I would gladly repurchase. Still, I'll probably buy this again.
I really want to like this product but I just don't. It's got zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as part of the sunscreen in it and a very high spf. Which is good. But I find that it's too emollient for my oily skin and the physical sunscreen elements leave a whitish cast on my very tan skin that never soaks in and looks metallic. It's tinted to tone down the whiteness and that tint comes off on clothes. I think on people who have paler and drier skin than me might really like it. I'm using up my tube of it but won't repurchase.
Mascara -Borghese - Superiore State-Of-The-Art Mascara

I have this in Bronzo and I have mixed feelings about it. It has a very subtle color and although I like that I think the formula is kind of clumpy and thick and negates the subtle, natural effect that the color is supposed to provide. It's yucky 90's mascara and they should reformulate it.
I got this as part of a GWP from beauty.com I don't like it at all. It has poor pigmentation, it's very, very hard, and it tugs like crazy. Who's using this awful crap?? No likey!
