I absolutely adore this mascara! I am so sad that it's quite difficult to find in the states, even on the internet. The brush is PERFECT for making your lashes extra long and it NEVER, ever clumps... which is why I love it so much. The packaging is very charming and the box even comes with a little blue bow. I really miss this mascara more than any I've ever used before! If you have access to it and want to have super long lashes with absolutely no clumps, this is a great mascara for you to try! One thing this mascara does not do is thicken lashes, so if you don't have naturally thick lashes, this might not be the best mascara for you.
I believe I'm on my 4th tube of ZoomBlack and have been pretty happy with this mascara. I've found that if you don't replace it promptly every month, or so, it gets pretty gloppy and clumpy. I like how it extends my lashes and there is minimal clumping. I'm pretty picky with mascara and have quite high expectations, so the fact that I've bought this product four times says something. I would recommend this mascara to picky mascara wearers.

This is the most wonderful foot lotion I have ever used... and I have used SEVERAL, including ones that contain shea butter, etc. When I put this lotion on my feet, they soften up INSTANTLY and stay that way until I put the lotion on again! I have never had results like that from any lotion, whether it was made for the feet or not. I have used foot lotions from: L'Occitane, Ahava, Borghese, BBW, Burt's Bees, TBS, and the list goes on. If you are looking for a lotion to soften your feet, this is it!

This scent is a DEAD RINGER for Philosophy's Cinnamon Buns 3-in-1, which is EXACTLY what I wanted! If you have the Cinnamon Buns 3-in-1 you know how it has that cakey/buttery undertone? Most Cinnabun fragrances don't have that... at least all of the one's I've sniffed. This one has that... it is a perfect match! VERY yummy fragrance! I don't think you can beat MMU's scents... they are so true and last so long! I highly recommend this scent, in case you haven't noticed ;) Especially if you're looking for a scented lotion to match your Philosophy Cinnamon Buns ;)

I really like this product... especially with the muslin cloth that Liz Earle is famous for! The Brightening Treatment tingles when I put it on my skin and when I take it off my skin feels fresher. It is VERY gentle and I love the texture! I have already repurchased this item ;)
This stuff is sooo awesome! I use it on my legs before I shave and it leaves them feeling incredibly soft and smooth! Also, it's very soothing and calming on the skin... not scratchy or harsh! Really a neat product to have on hand :)

This is an amazing lotion... it has a wonderful, fresh smell :) Plus, it does a great job of moisturizing the skin without leaving it feel greasy! Besides that, it's so natural and great for sensitive skin like mine :)

This lotion is so wonderful! It is very moisturizing and my skin just drinks it up! Also, it has no scent what-so-ever which makes it great for layering or when wearing other fragrances! I love it and I think you will too :)

YUMMY! This product is soo amazing! It is just the most amazing smell... almost impossible to describe! It's a very fresh and light scent that seems to smell different every time I put it on ;) It's like a mood matcher lotion LOL! Oh, and the texture of this lotion is just to die for... it's really like conditioner! LOL.. no wonder they call it conditioner for the body! It's an awesome product! Even if your afraid of fragrances (like I am since I'm allergic to EVERYTHING) I would encourage you to try this stuff... it's sooo awesome!

Oh my goodness... I wish I had known about this product all of my life... it is sooo fabulous! I love the texture, the smell, and the way it moisturizes. The coffee smell is very light and yummy! I love it... in fact, I just purchased 3 more because I know I won't be able to live without it... MUST NOT RUN OUT! Huge must have for all dry lips :)
This is one of the few fragrances that I like and can handle! It's a very soft, clean scent... not too overpowering or alchohol smelling (like some perfumes). I really like this and am glad I got to try it!

ICK! This product gives me the biggest migrain of my life! I cannot stand this smell! Sorry for anyone who loves it, but it's just not good for me! YUCK!
I've just about had it with Tweezerman tweezers! I've bought about 7 of them and they keep getting too dull, or something, to grab the hair... then I go and buy a new one and the same thing happens all over again! I wanted to like them, but I've given up! This will be my last Tweezerman purchase, for sure! I'm sick of paying big bucks for a tweezer that I keep needing to replace!
I really like the smell of the Fig Leaf and Cassis... in fact, it is one of my favorites! I can't handle most fragrances, but this one is light enough that I can enjoy it without getting an instant headache (which is the case with most fragrances for me). It's a very earthy type scent... very yummy and soft!
