I got it for free and still feel cheated. What a horrible product. It is absolutely insane that C.O. Bigelow charges $10 for this crap. But I guess they do because they The only good thing about it is a cute container, which must cost 1 penny. The rest is mostly vaseline (petroleum by-product) with a bit of rose oil and let’s not forget - artificial coloring.Save your money. Instead, buy a tub of vaseline, add your favorite food coloring or eo, mix, fill a cute container and enjoy!!! Give $8 to charity.
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF30

I continue buying this lotion because it is the only sunscreen that does not irritate my very-very sensitive eyes. I am using LRP SPF 60 for face, neck and hands and then use this lotion on eye lids and under eyes. As a lotion, it is light and smooth and absorbes quickly into my skin. In spite of the fact that it does NOT provide full UVA/UVB protection - unfortunately no sunscreen sold in USA (legally) does – it is still a very good product. Maybe one day, I will find a product in Europe that does provide full protection and does not irritate sensitive skin … until then, I will keep on buying Eucerin, Extra Protective Moisture Lotion SPF30
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Redness Relief Soothing Night Creme

Not only this creme does nothing to help redness, it actually causes it. My skin is very sensitive, so based on many positive reviews, I decided to buy this cream. What a mistake - there is something in it that irritated my skin and produced many red, patches which also itched badly. Hope rite-aid has a good return policy, otherwise this awful cream is going to a trash bin. Which is too bad, because other products in this eucerin line are quite good and useful
love, love, love this brush. have been using it for ... oh, must be 7 or 8 years. it has a gold handle which i love. much more organic feel then new plastic handles. but i see why trish changed handles - plastic is cheaper, does not require any paint and probably will last longer. though, i do not know how much longer, as this brush looks just like the day i bought it. at the time i got it, #5 and $2b were all the rage. I bought them too, but always reach for #37. it is great for everything - blush, powder, highlights. you name it, the brush does it. never sheds and feels amazing even on my very sensitive skin. if you want a good over all brush -- buy it, even if on e-bay. if i ever need another one - 30 years from now :) - i will sure buy it again.
Makeup Brushes -Trish McEvoy - Foundation Brush #43

trish makes some of the best brushes, but this foundation brush is not one of them. it is too long, too difiicult to use with liquid foundation and yet too easy to have 'skunk' face after using it. bleh this blush came with a very nice set from saks so i had to find another use for it. it is ok with cream or gel blushes. still not great but way better then with foundation. also, i found a foundation brush at the 99 cents store which is as good with blushes as trish's brush and performs better with foundations. if you want a really good foundation brush - buy one from lancome instead.
Finally, found my addiction :) The smell is divine, the texture is sublime. It is everything that a body balm should be. I dislike cinnamon, thankfully cinnamon is in the name only. But the sweetness of oranges ... can’t resist. Bought all I could find in several stores. It is great that bbw is running 50% sale, but i still managed to leave a small fortune there. If you are lucky to find it still, use a very small amount, you skin will thank you. And your nose will too :)
to all the ney-sayers: don't hate angel because it is beautiful. it is not angel's fault that you body chemistry is in conflict :( i've been using this amazing fragrance for many-many years and always get compliments ... from men and women. and no, they are not just saying it to ask for its name, they simply state how wonderful they think the smell is. only then, i sometimes reveal its name. try it, you just might be the lucky one that angel loves.
I found it on sale at the local Vitamin Shoppe. Read the ingredients and liked what I saw. But the best part came when I brought it home and tried it. What a wonderful find - pleasant smell, absorbs fast and leaves my skin 'baby-soft'. Another nice thing about it - the bottle topper which easily dispenses the lotion without leaking oil all over the bottle. Glad to see that you guys like this lotion too.
After reading good reviews, I had high hopes for this product. Thank you Sephora for letting us try before we buy. I could never-ever use this stain again. It smelled bad and was stinging my lips badly. I put my favorite VL lipstick over this and stingin supsided Still it did nothing to make lipstick last any longer and the stain was gone as fast as the lipstick. What a shame :(
I’ve been using this crème for more years than I care to admit. I do have dry, thick, coarse hair. I do use it only when my hair is wet and only around my face, on ends and never on my scalp. I used it when my hair was very short and continue using with much longer hair. It lasts forever because you only need the tiniest amount. It is the only product that keeps my curls … well, curly. Not frizzy, but shiny. Beautiful !!! If I were to change 1 thing - I would change the bottle. Not easy to get the product out when it is half-full. But I keep it upside down on a shelf, behind oil bottles, so that is not such a big deal. As it was said many times - this is a product designed for very dry, thick hair. Yet, amazingly so many with fine, oily, etc hair insist on buying it and then complain bitterly. Ladies, you have the benefit of this forum and other sites – do yourselves a favor, read the reviews before you buy. Chances are you will NOT be disappointed.
Makeup Brushes -Trish McEvoy - Trish McEvoy Brush #11

I love Trish's brushes and think that most of the them are simply the best. Yet this awful brush is the worst among them. It is so stif one must be careful not to damage eyesight. What was Trish thinking when she replaced a wonderful, angled #33 with this disaster? Good news - it seems that Trish listened to all who hated #11. Her latest set for SFA includes a brush still numbered #11 but with softer bristles. Also the old #33 seems to be resurrected under a new number. Great!
