Love the Body Shop creams!! The shea has a very nice warm smell. Is not oily or too drying. I got 3 of them but gave the others as gifts. Their lip balms are great too! Wish there was a Body Shop closer!!
I bought this years ago at TJMaxx and fell in love!! It is a great pick me up in the morning. The smell is a sweet honey. It is hard to find now other than HSN.
I have used the cocoa, lavender and aloe. Like them all about the same. It leaves your skin silky all day. I use it at night because I think it is too oily for day. I like it on my thighs when I wear a skirt so they don't chaf. I use it on my feet almost every night. I never have dry, itchy skin with this and doesn't make my skin oiler in the summer (I live in Georgia). My only complaint is that the bottles don't stay shut all the time and I have ended up with oil on my wooden dresser. One bottle does last a long time and the price is good.

I got this from Sally's after a "licensed stylist" literally fried my hair. She did not talk to me before hand and put orange/copper in my hair. I was ticked so she bleached it 4 times to get it out and still did not get it all out. My hair was like thread!!! I have been using it for about a month and along with Ojon leave-in treatment my hair is getting much better. I guess because this does not have sulfate in it, it does not lather much but other than that I love it!!

Been using this for severall months and love it. Really makes your skin matte. I think it is better than Smashbox and definitely more affordable!

Got this a few weeks ago at Big Lots for under $10 and love it! I have been doing peels from MUAC for the past few months but my skin is definitely evening out and I noticed this more after I started using this. Just got the pore cleanser and multi-layer cell treatment so reviews to follow in a few weeks with those.

I also read about this in Allure. Got this a few days ago and love it!! Guys and girls both love it which is unusual. I got it 75% off at VS in one of their bin sales. I spray it on several times a day since it doesn't last very long but it is not a perfume so I did not expect it to. I will do an update in a few weeks but so far so great!
Did not like the Pro Active product line because I did not have severe acne so I did not see a big difference in my skin. However, I use the mask on pimples and leave it on over night like the TV commercials say. Did not see a difference when used as a mask but did when used as a pimple treatment. I have also used the pimple treatment in the tube but this seems to work much quicker!!
I bought a small size of this for a few dollars. I usually wear Estee Lauder Spellbound but this is another very good one. Kinda musky.

15% review: Burned a little until I put baking soda on to neutralize it. I did 3 of them about 12 days apart. Helped with my deep acne scars and made my skin smoother. Skin stayed red for 3 days and then I peeled like a sun burn. Skin felt very tight for a few days before peeling. Waited 14 days between 2nd and 3rd peel. 1st peel: 5 mins 2nd peel: 5 mins plus 2 min overlay 3rd peel: 5 mins plus 2 2 min overlays (9 mins total). Waited 24 days before doing 30% peel. 30% review: Diluted it with water alittle. Burned just the same as the 15%. Skin was very dark and the peeled off skin looked just like a potato skin. Alot better improvement on scars. Did another peel yesterday even more diluting it with water. Results of this one to come next week. I suggest getting the sample bottle because using a q-tip you can get at least 5 peels out of them. UPDATE: I did another 30% but added water to it 3 weeks ago. My skin is definitely smoother and it is noticable!! My skin didn't get potato color this time. Next time I am gonna try not adding water. I usually do not peel for for a few days and it last about 3 days. UPDATE: Did another 30% and did not add water this time. Burned just the same and didn't white fluff as much. Instead of brown patches this time I had burgendy patches and people thought I got hit. Didn't peel until day 4. Sun spots and pitted acne scars are definitely better!!

I got this after the sales asst. at Ulta recommended it to me and another customer. I have tan/olive skin and I got the medium shade which is a little lighter than my coloring. It does not sink into my acne scars which would be nice to cover them better. It does cover my sun damage potato skin coloring skin (sorry but that is what it reminds me of). It does not make my skin any oilier or drier. A little goes a long way with this so it is a very good value!!
I have been using this for a few weeks after ofcourse reading the reviews on here and I have to say I like it better than the Maybelline Falsies. It does not clump but is thick. I have to wipe the wand sometimes because it does come out thick but not on the lashes. Washes off great with Cetaphil cleanser that I also love.

I have been using this cleanser for about a week after watching Youtube (can't really tell peoples skin on here). I haven't been breaking out at all and my skin doesn't feel dryer at all. This is a god send for make up remover though!!! Love it!! I would buy it for that alone if I had to but it does work good as a cleanser. I also use St Ives Apricot Scrub and have been doing TCA chemical peels. UPDATE: Been using for a few weeks and still love it! Does not make me get little bumps on my forehead like most do. The best eye makeup remover!! Have not broken out at all. Does not make me oilier or drier. UPDATE 3-13-13: I use this mainly after I get a chemical peel since it is so gentle. I use it occassionally to take off my eye make up if I am out of Neutrogena wipes. I mainly use Neutrogena Grapefruit scrub daily.
Like the others the smell was my number one complaint. The second was it had a marshmellow consistency. Very thick. Third, after I washed it off my skin still felt like it had something on it. It did feel dry but only for the night and by morning my normal skin was back.
I got this off of Ebay in a pack with foundation, body scrub and body lotion. I have used many face bronzers and this is the best!! No matter how much you pile on it does not look orange or red. It is a perfect copper color. The little sample size has lasted awhile and I use it everyday.
