I really love this stuff, it smells good and makes my skin super soft, and the price is great. I don't know that it's actually doing major things for my skin, but I still really like it, and I'll repurchase when I run out.
I bought this mask with every intention of trying it, and then probably returning it, unless it wowed me. It didn't wow me, but I can't seem to let go of it. It made my skin softer and I noticed a glow and vibrancy that wasn't there before. However, they were subtle changes, and not something I would pay 16 dollars for. But the combo of that, the smell, and the feel just made it impossible to give up.
I really liked this product, but I've found something else I like better (Alterna Hemp Seed Texturizing Glaze), so I won't be repurchasing. There wasn't enough separation, but other than that, I had no complaints.

Great curl formation with this and great separation. If you use too much, it'll get slightly crunchy, but much less so than anything else I've tried. Overall, probably the best curly hair product I've used.
Smells good, holds well, not too much crunch, but flakes everywhere!
The colors are beautiful, the staying power is very good. My only complaint is that it gets all over everything, so I only really wear it if I'm not going to be eating, drinking, etc.
I add this to my bath for super soft skin, and I also use it as a moisturizer after showers. It smells wonderful and the scent actually lasts. I'm not a huge fan of fruity scents, but this particular fragrance just really appeals to me. As a moisturizer, it's not the best I've ever used, but it's not bad either. But in the bath, it's absolutely amazing.

I love this stuff. It makes me so happy. My skin looks all glowy when I use it. I have combo skin, and this has really helped my breakouts and kept my drier patches hydrated. I use it every night. It's kind of messy to apply, I wish there were some better way to do it, but I doubt it. I don't think I'll ever buy another night cream/moisturizer as long as I have this stuff.

I'm not really sure if this has done anything for my breakouts. I think it helps but it's not a miracle worker. But for my nostril piercing, it was a godsend. It got infected and this was the only thing that helped. Overall, it's a good thing to have around.
I was disappointed in this soap. On one hand, I love the smell of the milk soaps. I wish I could find a fragrance like them. But the smell doesn't last, and the soap itself kind of sucks. It's not that it's done anything bad, it just seems that it has no special qualities, it seems like a basic soap that doesn't really do much for my skin. But it does last an abnormal amount of time, which could be good or bad, depending on how you look at it.

I like this moisturizer very much, it's perfect for the drier winter months. I have combo skin and I haven't had any problems with this breaking me out. I use it only in the mornings, and I like that it has an SPF of 18. My only problem with this is that it tends to leave my face a bit shiny (hence 4 lipsticks).

I really like this cleanser, it doesn't break me out and it doesn't leave my skin feeling tight. It smells very strongly of lavender, so if you don't like lavender, stay away. I always feel refreshed when I use it. One full pump is way too much (this stuff foams up like crazy), even half a pump seems like too much, so I can see this lasting forever. I will almost definitely repurchase when I run out.
This is what I expected Nars Orgasm to look like. It gives me a glowy flushed look. I actually like the smell of it.
Fantastic product!!! One side is a wax and the other a powder and it comes with a little brush. The brush isn't great, but it's not that bad. This is one of my holy grail items, I'm so glad I got this. My only complaint is the packaging, it's a little plastic flip top and it's really flimsy and falls open sometimes.
This polish is thick and hard to work with. By now, there are plenty of other options for great colors so save your money and don't buy these.
