I got the purple one that comes in a pump after my friend raved about it. I have used creams (mainly Veet) and this one does not come off in the shower even with the sponge. I gave it a 4 for package because the pump did not get clogged like most do. The sponge got moldy even though I thought it was dry. I used the spray hose/massager for my shower and it still did not come off. I used the fluffy sponges that everyone seems to have and it came off some but not totally. The last time I used it I used the stick that comes with Veet and it did come off. It gets a 2 because it does not come off like it claims but it does take the hair off if you use the stick.
I have been using this for about 10 years. My manicurist put it on to keep from getting knicks while my nails are wet. It is alittle pricey so when I get low I add olive or emu oil to it.
The MN sales assc suggested I get this with the cleanser and it does make a big difference. It was pretty cheap and is very good quality.
I have had mine for a few months and love it! I think the color is bare study and it is a light beige. It does take a few mins to dry so I put mine on before I get dressed and by the time it is dry I am ready for my darker shadow on the corner of my eyes. This definitely does brighten up my eyes. It is alot like the Rimmel one I got in Spain.
Eye Makeup Remover -Maybelline - Expert Eyes 100% Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
debbrumb 2/20/2011 8:51:00 PM
I have tried several liquid removers (Lancome Bi, Clinique, Neutrogena, Maybeline non-oily free, Estee Lauder, Mary Kay) and I have to say this is the best. I have tried the Maybeline non-oily one and didn't like it as well with my contacts. This removes any mascara I have used including water proof by other brands.
I bought a small size of this because i didn't want to invest in a full size just yet. I liked the smell and texture but it didn't detangle my hair. I had a hard time running my fingers thru my hair yet alone a comb. Combined with the shampoo I did notice my ends look alot better!!
Cleansers -Neutrogena - All-In-One Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes

I bought these wipes after reading the reviews and watching Youtube videos. They even got off my Maybelline waterproof mascara that even the Maybelline removed and baby shampoo can't. I only use them to remove make up and not to actually clean my skin.
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara
debbrumb 9/7/2010 9:34:00 PM
I bought this product a few days ago and love it but it is hard to get off with the non-oily eye make up remover or baby shampoo. I used the Neutrogena wipes and it came right off though. This mascara is thick and I only need 2 coats even for evening. Most newer mascaras have a brush that does not coat my lashes but this one does.
I had small white pimples on my forehead and after doing some investigating I learned to stay away from cleansers with lanolin or sulfate (can;t remember which one at the moment) so I bought this since it didn't have either. After a few days most of them have cleared up and my face hasn't broken out any worst. The only bad thing is the smell. I keep mine on the bathtub railing since it says to keep away from direct water so I don't have to smell it except when it gets on my face. I use a Merle Norman face brush to clean that I love also!!
I looked for scrubs at Walmart and only found 2 or 3 body scrubs. I like the foot scrubs because the grains are smaller and seem to "scrub" more. I wish they made a body one of this consistency or at least a bigger tube. It was pretty cheap and smells great.
Cleansers -Merle Norman - Luxiva Clear Complexion Gel Cleanser
debbrumb 8/15/2010 4:53:00 PM
I read the other reviews and bought this cleanser. I have been using the blue cleanser for awhile and I don't have any bumps on my forehead but when I started using this one they came back. It did clear up my pimples on my chin though but that was about all. UPDATE: After looking on the net I found out I have been getting small white and red bumps on my forehead from sodium lural sulphate (sp) and lanolin. This product has the sodium one which the blue cleanser by MN I was using did not so I switched back to the blue one.

Love love love this!! My hair is coarse, frizzy, long and color treated. I spray this on wet and it never makes my hair frizzy. I live in Georgia where it is usually 100% humidity.
Treatments -L'Oreal - Dermo-Expertise ReFinish Micro-Dermabrasion
debbrumb 7/21/2010 4:33:00 PM
I bought this product when I deployed to Spain...yes I know such a rough Air Force life...in 2003 and loved it. I hadn't thought about dermabrasion again until recently and not the product is off the market. I got another set a few months ago off of EBay and once again love it! I have deep pitted acne scars on my cheeks and smaller ones on my forehead and chin. The tiny scars on my upper cheeks are gone. I use it every 2 or 3 days, mask my face with a clay mask twice a week and try to steam my face once a week or more.
Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Ultra Powder Foundation
debbrumb 11/28/2009 5:05:00 PM
I got this foundation after a free facial. It does cover like a foundation but is really a powder. I have Ultra Sand and I am pretty tan. The only thing I don't like is how big it is. The compact does have an air vent for the sponge so it doesn't get nasty. I use it like a foundation and don't use anything under it. Does anyone know if you can wet the sponge and use it for more coverage?
Lipstick -New York Color - Smooch Proof Long Wearing Lip Color
debbrumb 11/28/2009 5:01:00 PM
I have this in 480 which is almost my face color match so it is very light but not pink. It is tan sorta. It stays on about 6 hours and doesn't feather if you let it dry before putting the gloss on. Revlon Ultimate gloss is my favorite but this is a close second!
