I got this and the Night Cream from a friend whose skin didn't agree with the them. When I first started using them, I broke out pretty badly. I'm not sure if that had something to do with the fact that I was using a lot of other products at the same time or what. But now, my skin is ten times smoother and the acne scars are starting to fade. I'm very impressed!
I stopped using this awhile back because it was making my lipglosses smell funky (I'm a stickler for having lip balm underneath my lipgloss - it makes things smoother!). But when I moved to Germany and had to adjust to the new climate, my other lip balms weren't cutting it. On a whim, I got this at the BX. I mean.. it's 99 cents! Now, I can't live without it!! I'm on the hunt for cherry and strawberry. Pfft. Good luck finding that at the BX. >:\
I'm still working with this product to clear up my skin. I went off hormonal birth control in July and it's wreaking havoc on my skin. I guess my body is still getting used to it. But this cleanser works very well at getting rid of all the crap! My T-zone is REALLY smooth (it's my "U-zone" that is having all the issues).. smoother that it's been in years! You really can't use this as a cleanser, though. The AHA/BHA doesn't have time to work if you do. So I smear it on as soon as I get in the shower, wash my hair, wash my body, and THEN wash this off my face. Plus, instead of just rinsing it off, I wet my fingers a big and massage it all over my face for the scrubbing benefit. Great product!
I've been using the same bottle of this since I was in the 6th grade (1999), lol. I'm not a big fan of the new packaging, but whatever. It's not the packaging that counts.. it's the product! I just love this fragrance. I can't point out what it is that I love so much about it. I think it's the nostalgia mostly. I also found out that it has a freesia note and I *love* freesia!! That's probably why, lol.
I'd buy it again, but I really wish they'd change the packaging. The tin is cute, but it's so damn hard to get open sometimes! Great product, though. Very moisturizing. I use it on my lips and cuticles mostly.

YUMMY!! When I first started working at BBW, we burned this oil in the store. Most times, I can't stand the smell of the oils because we burn SO MUCH at one time and the associates are usually placed right next to the burner, lol. But not this one!! It's such a wonderful fruity smell. It's all I can do not to snort it through a rolled up $$ bill! LOL!

I called all over town to find this!! I was a little late to the game because this is being gradually phased out. I should've gotten some of the Ultimate Silk body lotion when it was on sale at work!! This scent is so creamy and comforting and will definitely be a staple in the colder months!
I have acrylic nails, so my nailpolish collection is quite small. I only have a few staples. I picked this one on a whim because I thought it looked like MAC's L'il Sizzler lipgelee, LOL! Turns out.. this shade is PERFECT for the summer! I absolutely fell in love with it, and immediately went to Ulta and picked up a bottle.
Perfect fall/winter shade! I go back to this color time and time again when I get my acrylics done. It's absolutely perfect for fair skintones!

Soo refreshing! It's bright enough to wear during the summer, but also a great autumn scent as well. YUMMY!!

Why does BBW insist on getting rid of all of my favorite fragrances? This has been one of my favorites since I started buying BBW products 11 years ago. I'm 21 now...you do the math! Wild Honeysuckle has NOTHING on this fragrance.

LOVE this stuff! I'm always looking for something to make my lips softer (I think my lips are my best feature...so I gotta keep 'em lookin' good!). It's tasty too, lol.

I got a sample of this for free because I work at B&BW, but I'd totally purchase it!! It puts the perfect finishing touch on my hair after straightening it. ***EDIT*** I still like this, but I started using it as an after blow dry/before flat iron cream, and there was a learning curve. Too much left my hair greasy and flat. But a small pea-sized amount before flat ironing is absolutely perfect!
I got a couple of these over the years in swaps, but I would *never* actually purchase it. It's ridiculously expensive for what it does, and how much you get. I love the product itself, and if it came in a bigger tube or was MUCH cheaper, I'd buy it. But no dice until then!
I love this fragrance.. always have! It's such a fun, light scent and GREAT for summer!
