This product is nothing short of amazing. I have a sample and will most likely repurchase unless I find something cheaper. The price is steep but as another reviewer mentioned it will last a LONG time - I have a tiny sample bottle and it has lasted a couple months. You only need a tiny amount and you will KNOW it is working because yes it burns but in that oh so good burn so you know that it's working way!! :D

Beautiful smell! I agree with the other reviewer, it smells exactly like its name, so accurate! I have a weird thing about perfume, very hard for me to find one that doesn't give me a migraine. Tried the sample today and it didn't bother me at all, it is strong smelling but not overpowering, definitely makes you feel more like a woman. Some of their perfumes smell really cheap and whore-ish to me, but this one is very nice. I only have a sample bottle but I do think it's going on my Christmas list. :D Good job VS!!
Great product and very inexpensive. Good for blush.
Beatiful! I Love this slightly irridescent beigish-pink color - very natural. You will go through it quick but for a dollar can't be beat! About 40 clicks makes it start pumping but I love the applicator and the application. Great find!

E.L.F. Products IMO have been hit or miss. I don't like the Liquid Lipstick or the Minty 2 side plumper (both are cheap - well DUH I know the other stuff is too, lol but with these they smell bad and don't work well for me) but the glosses especially this one are surprisingly high quality for the price you pay! It shows you that not everything follows the idea of getting what you pay for because you definitely have a lot of nice things to chose from with E.L.F. that are on par with much higher costing brands. This one is a hit for me, love it! Smooth, glossy but not sticky and great over another color!
OMG - $1.00! GREAT BRUSH! $1.00!!! Need I say more? A steal. I paid $30.00 for a brush of the same quality. You won't be sorry.

Holy COW Batman! This stuff is in-cred-ible! Can't say enough, you can use it for EVERYTHING even on your face. The smell is great, the price is the BEST, it has amazing ingredients (comparable to very high-end products) - SERIOUSLY go out and buy a few bottles of this today you will not be sorry - I bought mine at Sally's and they were having a 2 for 1 sale I think it came out to be like $2.00. You CANNOT GO WRONG!!! I should mention I got the Olive Oil one.

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! Been using it day and night and definitely see improvements in the overall plumpness and youth of skin. I have the Perricone Promise book but have never bought into his recommendations due to the price of his products, however this is the "secret" moisturizer he recommends (the DMAE) but at a fraction of the cost of his (like $95.00 or something crazy) this stuff is only 17.00 at a health food store. Highly recommended, just remember it will take a few weeks using it to see results!
Wonderful WONDERFUL product that is now my HG night-time moisturizer. Read about a million outstanding reviews on this (on another site actually) and went out frantically to find it. For some reason it is never with the other moisturizers so it may be hard to find, at Walmart I found it over by the Revlon make-up area kind of tucked away below the makeup - stupid if you ask me! From the other reviews I read there are women that have used this for years that look dramatically younger than their real age. That was enough to interest me and I have to say it is the only thing I have found that keeps my skin moist and hydrated in the harsh Colorado climate. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Thanks REVLON for such a great product!!

Best product I have ever used on my hair - turns afro-frizz into silky smoothness - I have thick course stiff hair usually but when I use this it really keep it in great shape. I have tried almost everything out there for hair and this tops them all.

This product is great! I read about it on here and bought it a while ago but didn't really use it - I am getting married in 3 weeks and my skin has been looking dull and discolored lately (from stress and lack of sleep) - took this back out and started using it and I have that pink glow and my skin feels softer than EVER! Amazing product! Highly recommed it! :-) Thanks MUA for another great recommendation!!

This is one of my favorite products! Everytime I use it it leaves my skin soft and pink (healthy) - does not make me break out and I have combo skin. The perfect pick me up before going out is using this, it will leave you tingly and refreshed! AAA+++ :-D Thank you to MUAers, that's how I found this in the first place! Love Jason's products.

I bought this after reading the reviews on here and actually do like it although I think it broke me out the first few times using it (I can't stop at one product so after throwing everything but the kitchen sink on my face it becomes hard to differentiate which was the culprit) but I do like it and will pull it out again thanks to re-reading these reviews. I'll update if I can use it with any consistancy... I do think it's a good product but whether or not it's responsible for the breakouts is the question. Other than that my skin feels very good after using it.
It's cheap. It's smelly. But it works. 6 bucks or so for a tin of it and yes, it makes me think of barnyard animals too everytime I put it on (I laughed at the other user who said this) but even vasoline doesn't work as well IMO to fight super dry skin. If you really really can't handle the smell, my recommendation is to mix it with something that has a strong smell of its own like cocoa butter lotion, then heat it up in the microwave for a few minutes and mix it. I do that with Jergen's Ultra healing lotion, palmer's cocoa butter formula, vitamin E oil, coconut oil & the smell is a whole new gross smell (but not the medicinal smell of bag balm so may be better for those who can't take it) and I have to say nothing tops that combination of lotions/oils - But if I don't have time to make that concoction I'll just use bag balm. It works very well for elbows, feet, lips, dry skin anywhere -- my ex had very bad excema on his hands and would bleed so bad he'd form a hole in his hand but if he used this stuff it would keep him from getting real bad and that's where I learned about this stuff from.

Okay, the little blue balls kind of freaked me out. (In my experience that is never usually a good thing - haha) But I have to say I'm surprised by all the negative reviews. My hair does not condition well with just any product so whenever I find something that works I'm surprised, especially something cheap like this is. I guess I'm the only one who LOVES the smell - yeah cherry is probably accurate and it makes your hair very soft. I'm only giving it 4 because there are better conditioning masks out there (there is a pack from Target I can't remember the name, I will try to find it, but it's hands down THE BEST one I've ever used) but this one is fun and funky with the little blueberry balls, they are a little weird and hard to get used to but I haven't noticed any tub staining to speak of like some others have mentioned. Also how can you go wrong buying the little sampler of it, if you don't like it you've wasted 2 bucks max, right??
