I really like this balm. It gives my lips a really nice subtle sheen. The only downside of DCT is the pot-I really wish it came in a tube or a stick.

I like the way this cleanser felt and I like the packing but I broke out after about one week of use. I threw away the nearly full bottle.
I thought that all 2% hydroquinone based fade products were all the same but Black Opal's Essential Fade complex has proved me wrong. I have been using this gel-like product for a little over 2 weeks and I am already noticing some lightening of my dark spots. I was a little hesistant about buying the fade complex because the ingredients lists some type of citrus blend-which made me think about those orange and lemony products that have broken my face out. Fortunately, I've had no breakouts with BOFC. This is a winner.
Toners -Dove - Essential Nutrients Clarifying Toner

I really like this toner. My skin looks and feels smoother after using it. Plus it is very gentle and does not sting like many "clarifying" products. I've been using it for about a month and I have not experienced any irritation. This is an overall great buy.
I thought this was a pretty decent mascara. I do not love it but I don't hate it. I did notice the little fibers on the wand and I like the fact that the fibers are in the same container as the mascara(it's less time consuming than those 2n1's). I have experimented with this mascara 2Xs and I did manage to get a semi-false eyelash look but it did not look very natural(hence the word false).
Cleansers -Dove - Essential Nutrients Cleansing Pillows

First of all these things are too small. Secondly,they lathered too much-I can never get all of the cleanser rinsed out of the pillow. Lastly, these pillows left my combo skin feeling very dry and tight. I will give Dove an A for effort and innovation but this product as a whole fails. I will not buy again.
