I love, love, love this product. Probably my favorite gloss ever. Sleek, shiny sexy lips that have the right amount of color without the tackiness. Definite summer must-have!!!! I'm out but I definitely need to re-purchase. I might have to check out the other brand that someone else mentioned.
Conditioner -Paul Mitchell - Lavender Mint Moisturizing Conditioner

Great daily conditioner and it isn't heavy so it won't make your hair dull. Lavender Mint smells great too (but I love lavender). To me, it's worth the $.
Shampoo -Paul Mitchell - Lavender Mint Moisturizing Shampoo

I love this product! The Mint slightly tingles (not as much as the Original Tea Tree formula) and the Lavender is relaxing. It's gentle on my Blood Red Special FX highlights and leaves my hair soft.
This was the first lip gelee that I purchased from MAC and THIS is how a lip gloss should look AND feel! Makes your lips look lusciously moisturized and kissable but not goopy and sticky. I'll definitely be buying more!
I love the color, but the consistency - not so much. I have long hair and if I'm wearing this outside on a windy day, watch out! I would buy this again, but I'd be hesitant.
Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

It's pricey. The packaging sucks, especially if you have long nails like I do. But I'd buy this again. Why? Because my 32 year old skin starting flaking out on me this winter. My skin is typically oily in the T-zone, but I developed acne on my chin along with dry patches here and there. It wouldn't go away and I happened to find a Philosophy gift set of skin care items I had received as a gift maybe 2 years ago. It was all sealed and I thought "what have I got to lose?" So I started using the products. The cleanser, the scrub, the hope in a jar. And I have to say that the moisturizer was the first thing I used even before whatever else was in the box and Hope In A Jar made my skin happy all Michigan winter long. For me, this product works and I'm might give the SPF version a shot next, but the price is a little steep just to 'try' it. Usually the SPF formulas make me break out or leaves this tacky film on my skin.
I can honestly say, I love chicken poop. I really do. A smear of chicken poop on my lips always makes my day and it gives a subtle sheen. While some mentioned they didn't care for the smell, I love it. But then again, I love the scent of lavender. Typical lip balm packaging and it's inexpensive. The last time I purchased a tube of chicken poop must have been 2 years ago at Walgreens or something. I am sad to say that I haven't seen it around since. :( How sad.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

My review for the original formula is pretty much the same. Anyone can use it. It's not tacky, not greasy. I like the flavor and I honestly wasn't sure what to expect with the color but even though it's lightly tinted, it doesn't show up. Good if that's what you want, bad if you wanted a touch of color. Overall, I would buy this again and it's just a good tube to keep in your purse or at your desk.
I generally like all of the Burt's Bee's line. It's a great lip balm that isn't too tacky and not too greasy. Great for adults or kids, men or women. I didn't give it a 5 b/c it's not my absolute favorite but it does come close!
Cleansers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Cleanser (Normal to Oily Skin)

I have combination skin that gets greasy in the warmer months but I get dry patches in the colder months. I've been using this product for about 3 years now and the largest size will last me about 6 months. If you keep an eye out for it, Walgreens will sometimes have it on sale buy one get one, or 50% off. Not too bad! As far as cleaning, sometimes I have to use 2 pumps if I am wearing a lot of makeup or feel extra grimy, but it doesn't leave my skin dry or taut. It's gentle enough to be my year round cleanser and it does the job. If my skin is feeling particularly dry, I will use the regular formula for normal skin. For the money, it's a great buy!
