I buy this for my husband... he is a Dove boy only...!! I prefer the scent to the other Dove bars out there but the only way you get exfoliation is if you put the bar directly onto your skin...if you take it into your hands and lather, you don't benefit from the exfoliation....I will use this only in a pinch, but not on my face....although, it does help my husband with his breakouts....
This setup is great for teens just starting out, I think. This is not real skin care for anyone over 18...Mature skin that is less oily does not need the harsh soapy alcohol filled products this line has to offer..I agree with someone else who reviewed and said Clinique has so many other skin care essentials that are great...this, though, is the bottom of the barrel as far as I am concerned...the moisturizer is worthless when you are older ( I am 31 )the toner is much to harsh and the soap, well, I just couldn't see using a bar of soap when there are so many other fantastic, way cheaper cleansers out there...might as well wash your face with a bottle of motor oil....anyway,,,,unless you are just starting a skin care routine and are looking for discipline, try it, for all the ladies out there....go find something else....

Well I just picked this up at CVS...I love the way it feels going on... a nice cooling sensation and it goes on effortlessly which all liners should.. anyway.. I also bought the moody blue one b/c it was buy one get one 50% off.
Funny story: My husband and I wanted to take a romantic soak in our whirlpool tub one night...I realized that I didn't have any bubble bath at home so I ran to my local supermarket, couldn't find any grown up bath stuff so I turned to this in the hurry I was in... came home and my husband was like " only use a small amount..well I took the bottle from him and proceeded to use almost half of it....when we were done , we had suds EVERYWHERE....anyway, after soaking there for a while I realized that my skin was like SILK!!! The scent was heavenly and I was like " And they just make this for babies.. well needless to say, this immediately went into my shower and now I use this almost on a daily basis....the scent is wonderful and the softening effects it left on my skin was great!!! I didn't think there would be that many suds because it was for kids....Surprise, Surprise!!! Try it!
I have Diva so I thought I would give this one a try too...I love the packaging and the brush.. I also love the shimmer and shine....Wear alone or with a nice nude lip liner.... I sometime will swipe it across a matte lipstick for a more " whallop" effect...I try not to kiss my husband though I am not sure if he can really appreciate the glitter and the shimmer... great for evening and the weekends.......I would repurchase.
!!!! LOVE IT !!! See my review for Kiss of Caramel.....EXCELLENT!!!

!!! LOVE IT!!!!!!! Great texture, no smell, not stickey and long wearing w/o being dry..better than most expensive department store brands I have purhased...PLEASE JANE NEVER STOP MAKIING THIS ONE OR KISS OF CAROB.
I first got a small sample of this and after I wore it to bed, my husband compliemented me on how he really liked the scent... I now keep a regular stock of the body wash and lotion at home..I never run out....and the smell is very nice too....
Love this mascara, best one I have tried in a long while. I do agree with someone else who mentioned that it drys up pretty fast in the tube...but still I love the way it accentuates my lashes.. I could even skip the liner and shadow and just wear this....or I could go all out for an evening look...I am sure I am not alone when I say I am not crazy about the $$$ they charge for their mascaras.. I think they could drop the price...maybe to even $15..that would be a nice change...but overrall I will definitely repurchase. I have a black and a brown one, just to change off....

I want to buy another tube of this..it is on it's way to being a staple in my make up bag...love the gleam that is gives off, the scent is not overpowering and most and best of all it is not stickey.. it glides on effortlessly, and never feels sticky or goopy, even coming out of the tube.. the name truly fits this gloss.. wet slicks are ok with me.. I would repurchase this shade again...
The only thing I like about this mascara is the cute packaging...everything else about it is unbelievably horrendous.....How can the mascara gods allow this to continue??? I can name a thousand better ones, even wet and wild and crappy dollar mascaras are better.....save your money!!!
I just got this the other day and tried it for the first time this morning... I love it!! Love the color, the consistency, and there is no fragrance or greasy feel....I might venture out and try new colors...kudos to Loreal for this neat item.

I was looking for a light, nightime, no frills moisturizer..something that would not break me out, not smell and not leave me with an oil slick on my face in the morning...I found it!! This has been great so far...no break outs, no fragrance and best of all there is no greasy oil slick in the morning when I wake up...I will switch back to my Eucerin for the winter months but for now this is working fine. **UPDATE** I still use this only at night...I am not overly impressed but just wanted something to get me through the summer months..maybe next season I will try something else... sure wish my Euercin came in something without an SPF for nighttime.....oh well.
Not bad for an Avon fragrance.. nice and light for the summer and I love that when you spritz it on it doesn't get everyting in it's path wet...it is a nice light mist..perfect for the heat of the summer.. little tip.keep in your fridge.. when you spray it on... it feels wonderfully cool.
