I love this product. It smells great and it is very moisturizing without being heavy or greasy.
I got a tin of this in my Baby Bee starter kit. It is very pepperminty. I like the overall texture though, it is very smooth and moisturizing. I love Burt's Bees, but this product is a bit too strong for me.
I really like this. I have it in no. 2 which I bought for an everday color. I must have close to 50 lipsticks at home, and none of them were doing it for me. I want a plum color, that I can wear everday. I looked all over Ulta and found this. I was put off by the sparkles, but they really blend well into the color. The packaging is very cute. The lipcolor has about average-better than average staying power. Like I said, this is my everyday lipcolor, and my lips are already pigmented. The only thing I don't like is that is is a bit too matte,I just wear the Reflect gloss stick on top, perfect. I will definetely look at other colors.
Gels/Soaps -VitaBath - Moisturizing Gelee Bar Soap - Citrus Twist

I really liked the gelee and the dry mist oil spray. I did not like the soap. I felt that it was really drying, and even my husband agrees with me! The scent is very nice, but this soap is very dry. May work well for someone with oily skin?
This is too greasy for normal wear. This may work well to apply right before bedtime, but I had this at my desk at work and left greasy residue over everything!
Misc Beauty Tools -Japonesque - Mini Heated Eyelash Curler

I haven't tried it with mascara. It really didn't work better than the crimp style for me, and it goes through batteries so fast! I'll try it with mascara, maybe I'll be able to edit my review. Rigght now, I'm sticking with my crimp curler.
I really like this product. I don't have sensitive skin, so the fragrance doesn't bother me. I have this in Suntan, and it is a very nice, sheer powder. I don't use a foundation, just my sunblock, a concealer and this on top. I have many different powders, bit I keep reaching for this one.
I have this in the plum color. The SA was wearing this on black, and it was very intense. I decided on the plum, because I have short, sparse lashes and I was hoping this would plump them up without beign too overpowering. It works very well. The color is very subtle, and not harsh like black. It looks very natural. It does has a tendency to clump, so I use a comb. I was overall pleased with this product.
I really liked this. I used it as a body wash and I found it very moisturizing. It foams very well, and the smell is heaven. Very pumpkin pie, and it doesn't stay with you after you leave the showed which is nice. I was very pleased with this purchase and I think it is worth the price, after all, the bottle is huge.
I also got this a a GWP. I really like this color, and I have dark hair and eyes, medium skin. It is a very nice subtle shade with a touch of shimmer.
Great value! I have been using this for maybe 2 years, every night and I think I am on my 4th tube. This removes everything I need it too. I don't use waterproof mascara,a nd I do have to tissue off lipgloss/lipstick before using, but this works very well. If I have really heavy make-up on (A full base), I need to follow up with the cleansing bar, but this works to remove my everyday makeup. I think this is a good product with great value.
I really lke the Clinique 3-step system. I had some problems with my skin, and the consultant recommended startying the system, that was about 2 years ago and i haven't looked back. I have combination skins, and I think this bar does a really good job of cleansing. I think it is very mild, I have never had any redness or irritation.
Moisturizers -Clinique - City block Sheer SPF 15 [DISCONTINUED]

I really like this! I only need a sheer color in the summer after I get a bit tan, and I find using this under powder really does the trick. I use the regular city block in the winter. I don't have any problems with breakouts using this, and i have been using city block for probably 5 years now. I have the medium/dark color, and I have a medium skin tone, I find that it blends well, ans provides a good base for my powder.
I love this stuff! It gives you baby smooth feet, and it smells heavenly. It can be a bit sticky if you apply too much, a little goes a long way. I don't like the metal tube, it starts off nice, but as you use it, it gets wrinkly, and sometimes the product leaks out if it cracks, bit other than that, I really love this and I'll be using it as long as they make it! UPDATE: I just purchased a new tube, and they are now made out of plastic. SO I changed the packaging quality rating to a 5. I really love this stuff, I no longer have dry, cracked heels. Real sandal feet. Please, a little goes a long way!
I really like this. It gives a nice glow, either on it's own or mixed in with foundation. I don't wear foundation, I wear Clinique City block with sheer tint and this makes it look even better. This is a definite if you want a nice, rosy, subtle glow. And you can put a bit extra on any areas you need it (under eyes, lips, etc)
