I used to use this mask all the time when I was a young teenager and I remember loving it then. I got older and sort of banished it, thinking it was "juvenile" since it was a very cheap drug store find. I moved on to neem masks, warming clay masks, collagen and Co Q-10 masks... with price tags upwards of $30... I bought this again yesterday for the first time in probably 8 years and it is more fantastic than ever and after two applications, benefited my skin more than any other pricey mask I've tried. I should just stick with what works, eh? Under $3 and terrific.
I got this as a gift and it took me two months before I actually used it. The smell is nice, but VERY VERY strong. I have to leave the room that I apply it in because its so overwhelming. After it dries the scent lingers FOREVER. I don't think I'd buy it again, just because the overpowering scent had lead to to mix it with unscented Jergens... so that one bottle is going to last me a while...
Low tingle factor, good color, but it feels like rubbing Vaseline on your skin! Blech, I don't want to even think about how clogged my pores got. Breakout to ensue, I'm sure...
WOO! I got 2 of these on sale at an outlet mall while visiting New Orleans. $3 for both! Pigment is excellent, its smooth, it lasts and goes an extremely long way. Also good for wet application and to mix into other powdered shadows. I just wish I would have bought a few more colors.

This is good as a leave in conditioner in WET hair. On dry hair it becomes greasy and sticky. A little goes a long way. Its done a good job of keeping my hair protected and moisturized, so its a daily product. Been looking for something else, though.

I picked this up at Walmart the other day based on smell alone. I use it along with my leave in conditioner and it gives INCREDIBLE shine and softness. I've also come to rubbing a bit on my legs and shoulders, as it gives a very sexy sheen and leaves your skin very soft. The smell is DELICIOUS.
I tan in tanning beds but I use gradual self tanner lotions in between my visits to keep my color revved up. After reading the reviews for this product I decided to pick it up at Walmart today. It was under $4. I just used it about 10 minutes ago... and although it smells okay in the bottle, it started STINKING on my skin. And it feels really sticky right now. I don't know if it will dry, but so far, I don't like it at all and I'm thinking of returning it to walmart adn reclaiming my $3.88.
Just got a starter kit yesterday.... I'm in love. The brushes suck a little, but I'm totally in love. this makeup makes me look like I was born with delicious, flawless skin.
Lame bottle, lame name, AMAZING SCENT AND LASTING POWER. Love it love it love it.
Lotions/ Creams -California Tan - X Power - With Bronzers

I work at a tanning salon so I've used a plethora of lotions. This has strong DHA bronzers which will give you instant color but streak easily and look odd on lighter complected people. The consistency is thin and a bit oily, the smell is not impressive.
I was in my University library killing time with a magazine about two years ago when I ran across a Euphoria sample. Smelled it, and literally a chill ran down my spine. I just KNEW. I went and bought it the next day. Love it. So versatile. Floral enough with hints of marshmallow so its soft, but with sultry musk undertones. My boyfriend can't keep his hands off me when I wear it and people ask me ALL the time what it is. Several people have gone out and bought it with my recommendatoin. Only complaint? The bottle is shaped awkwardly. Its a bit hard to spray.
My boyfriend loves this scent, which I find a bit odd because he discriminates against fragrances so much, especially those that are citrusy. I find it to be unisex. I have no probably wearing it during the day, but for the evening, especially on a man, it is not nearly musky enough.
I initially smelled this as a sample in the avon catalog and was apprehensive about it. I liked it, but wasn't 100% sure because it smelled sort of young. Got it yesterday. The bottle is very cheap looking and at first it is very overwhelming (which freaked me out) but after a few minutes softened up a great deal. I used it about 8 hours ago and it is still lingering... its turned into a very soft, sweetly-sexy scent. Not too flowery, and just sugary enough to be comfortable. Not my favorite fragrance ever, but I'll definitely use it. But I did get jipped. I didn't get my GWP but I don't feel like hassling avon about a cheap plastic necklace anyway.
