I absolutely love love love this product. My sister had me try it while she worked for Clinique and I will never wear anything else but this again! I have strawberry blonde hair and use the Soft Brown color, and it blends right in. You can go as light or as dark with this as you want, and it's perfect for filling in. I use a dry, clean mascara brush over my brow after I've used it to make it look more natural and it has fantastic results. Not bad for the price, either. The amount lasts awhile for me too. The coloring of the shades available are perfect with no hidden undertones so you look as natural as possible. I've gotten many compliments on my brows since using this, I highly reccommend it especially if you're fed up with the one you're using now!
Moisturizers -St. Ives - Collagen-Elastin Essential Moisturizer

I had been using this product for about 2 years I'd say! For a moisturizer it's pretty good for the price, and the tub lasts forever (although I'd prefer a pump). It's not overly thick and the smell isn't half bad. I used it on my face at night and after I wash my face each time. It has a mild soothing effect to it and absorbs quickly, and isn't greasy at all. It's great for putting on before makeup too, and won't leave a shiny sheen underneath. However, I'm paying way more attention to my skin care routine these days, and this product has officially been cut out of it. Simply put, there's just better moisturizers out there. Other products have left my skin way more soft and even-toned than this one. I don't believe this is a truly effective moisturizer- maybe on the first level of skin cells, but not much more than that. For the eye area in particular, I would definitely use a specific eye cream rather than this. After trying other more effective products I can say I'm not even sure this moisturizer did ANYTHING at all for my eye area. It just doesn't provide enough hydration. I also want to warn people about using this product with sunblock. I used it with Neutrogena's Age Shield Face Sunblock SPF 70, and had an allergic reaction. It was painful and my skin freaked out where the two products mingled... I rarely have allergic skin reactions so this threw me off a bit. For my eye area, I've switched to Garnier's Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Eye Cream instead of using this product. AMAZING results and knocks this St. Ives moisturizer to the ground. For my face I've switched to Alba Botanica's Sea Lipids Daily Cream. If you're looking for just a basic moisturizer for a good price and aren't too concerned with much more, you can try out this one. I wouldn't recommend it if you really want results, though. Keep looking! =]
