I love this stuff. It spreads so easily, and it really works. It gives your lips a tingly feeling, and it has this smell that I really like. I use it in addition to regular stick chapstick though.

I bought this stuff about three years ago, and never repurchased. The smell is very chemically and strange. I couldn't use it under my arms because it made them bleed and burn like crazy. It starts to sting after a while. You have to use your hands to spread the stuff. So icky. Use Nair Pretty instead!
I just bought this today. I'm a PPP and i bought the one for fair skin (I wanted to buy medium, but all they had was medium-dark skin tones). I applied it easily a few hours ago. This truly is a gradual self tanner - i don't see a difference yet lol, which is allright because I just want to look natural. Anyway, it doesn't smell funny, but after a while there is this funky smell. It doesn't smell like chemical to me, just strange. But you can only smell it, like another reviewer said, if you put it right up to your skin. I used this on my face as well...hopefully it doesn't break me out! I'll be updating in about a week for sure =) Oh, and it feels just like applying a nice lotion to your body. Feels really good actually.
oily, acne prone skin - ugh. I tried this for the first time about two weeks ago. I used it two days in a row. The first day, nothing happened - my face cleared up a bit I guess. But after the second day, I broke out on my cheeks! I've never, ever ever broken out there before. Maybe that's purging? I'm not sure, I don't really know what that whole concept is. All I know is the pimples are STILL on my cheek, as well as some weird red bumps around my chin, and I'm totally pissed. **UPDATE 7/08** I'm still feeling the repercussions of trying this mask. My cheeks, which were SO clear before, are still messed up. My forehead also has a lot more millia then before. It's been a year! I regret using this product so much. It's ruined my skin.

This was okay. I was actually expecting a glow, sadly, and didn't get one. If I had known that I wouldn't have atleast gotten out of the shower sparkly, I would have purchased another Cashmere Luxury bottle because I think it smells much better. I really don't notice a nice smell in this bottle at all. It doesn't smell bad, just more like a soap. I won't be buying this again, as I can get the results from a cheaper or atleast better smelling bodywash. Btw, I bought it at Longs Drugs. Original price is around $6.

Omigosh, this stuff smells SO good. I don't know if it makes my skin any softer...but it smells delicious enough that I don't care. I got it on sale...2 for 7 at longs. If it wasn't on sale, I don't think I'd buy it (atleast not at a drugstore).
I love this! It's such a gorgeous mix of colors. I apply with a brush rather than a spongy applicator so you can still distinguish the separate blue and purple colors. Ahhh, so gorgeous.
First of all, make sure you pick a color thats advisable for your hair color! I read the person with blonde-hair-who-tried-to-dye-their-hair-brown's review, and you're right, it turned out a weird color because the brown's not recommended for blond hair (their are only two color, I think recommended for blond hair, depending on your shade of blond). I didn't follow the box's advice either. I have medium -dark brown hair, and I used the cool blonde color. I knew it wouldn't dye my hair, but I tried it anyway. There wasn't much of a change, but some of my hair did get a sort of cool, bronzy color. I actually liked the effect, even though it wasn' too noticable. I think I'm going to try the actual Copper color later. People should note that it's recommended to 'pulse' your hair with color, not to really to dye it like you would with permanent color. Overall, I liked this product a lot. It didn't smell nasty, and it was so easy to apply and didn't stain anything.

I bought this product on sale...and then I realized that it's expiration date was in 2004...maybe that accounts for its funny smell? I spent 8 bucks on it, and I couldn't return it, so I decided to try and use it anyway. It actually was effective in clearing my acne, but it sometimes left my oily skin dry. I'd buy this product again if it was on sale...but I'd have to continuously use it before considering paying full price for it.

What I hate about this product is its inconsistency. Sometimes it reduces pimples, sometimes it makes them darker and grosser... I find that it usually works better if you apply it with a Q-tip, and after using cleanser. But still, my results were always inconsistent. I did like the smell though.
I LOVE this lipgloss. It's not too sticky for me, and it's so shinyy, I love it! It's not bright pink like it looks, but I suppose it has a pinkish touch about it. I got it at an outlet for $5...but when it runs out, I may be willing to pay 17.50. It smells delicious too!
I sweat A LOT, not matter how hot or cold it is. And, like someone below me, one arm sweats a hell of a lot more than the other In fact, I don't even apply certain dri to one of my arm pits because it really doesn't need it. This product does work, and I only need to apply it about once every three days. I apply it before bed time, and in the morning I apply a nice smelling deodorant (like Secret Scents). What I don't like about this product is that it's a roller deodorany. I understand its necessary for the product to work, but none the less the liquid is bothersome. Also, make sure that you armpits smell good before applying, or else the ball will start smelling icky...I tried washing it, but I think I made matters worse and ended up buying a new one! It's more expensive than other deodorants, but it's well worth it.
