I have gone through about 3 or 4 jars of this stuff and I really love it! Its great! Just add a little bit of water and spread it on your face. I used it every night and then used Cetaphil to cleanse. My skin looked really great. (You probably think every night is too much, but i have super oily-acne prone-teenage skin.) So the other day, for some reason, I decided to get Clean and Clear's Oxygenating scrub. What a bunch of crap. Immediately I started getting black heads and whiteheads on my chin. My forehead looked like Braille. And considering thats the only thing I changed, i know that scrub is the culprit. I need more Burt's Bees! I dont know why I ever chanded when my routine was working so well!!!!

After reading all the good reviews, I was expecting to love this, and i wanted this to be "the one" for my face. its not. its super greasy and makes me SO shiny. i was realy disappointed. This also didnt last very long, and I almost dont want to finish it. And the little jar is so unsanitary! I also felt like this didnt moisturize well. The only plus is the SPF.
It is very gentle and smells good. I have super oily skin, and this keeps it under control and clear. No breakouts, and it doesnt take a lot of product to clean my face. This will last a long time!

It doesnt really soak in, and is greasy but i use it constantly on my hands. My team practices outside (tennis) and it is hovering around freezing so this stuff is my hero. it really saves my hands. AND THE SCENT IS EXACTLY LIKE ROASTED MARSHMELLOWS!
I love this gloss! Its so shiny and smells good. To me, its like Burts Bees in gloss form, which is good! It tastes good too. The only problem is that sometimes the lid gets really sticky, but the product itsself is awesome.

ugh. When I use this stuff, it makes my lips look white and like theres a film on them or s/t. The moisturizing is alright, but not long lasting. I don't mind te scent but dont let this stuff get in your mouth. its gross. I only keep using this to get rid of it.
At first, this IS grainy, but I kept using it because I adore the realiztic honey smell and it moisturizes without feeling heavy. This is lighter than the original, which I love as well. Also it isn't pepperminty, which sometimes I like and sometimes I don't. But it stops being grainy after you use it for a while. Then its even better. :)
I bought this on sale at Bath and Body works for 75% off of the original price, so I think it was only a few bucks. I first applied 2-3 pumps on wet hair, after leave in conditioner. I then flat ironed my hair (Remington Wet-2-Straight) and applied a few more drops. (I shower at night so I can sleep later) It was SO shiny and soft. Seriously! I had been using John Frieda, which was okay, but was heavy. I LOVE how this smelled and how effin shiny my hair was! The next morning before I left, I straightened the top to finish it and applied a few more pumps. Gosh, my hair has never looked so good when I straightened it. The next night, I put some one damp hair and twisted them into cute little buns on the side of my head. Next morning, I took them down, and I had beautiful sleek and soft curls! I applied a bit more and gosh! I have never loved my hair so much! I have got to get more of this stuff before the sale ends!! I dont want to run out!

I finished using a bottle of this a while ago, but decided to review it anyways. Im not sure if it claims to make hair grow slower, but what it does do is make the regrowth finer and lighter and generally less noticeable. I used it on my whole body and i felt soft, and my skin looked good. After a few weeks, my arm hair and body (im fair skinned with medium brown hair) hair appeared much lighter and less noticeaable. I didnt care for the scent, but I think the product is worth it nonetheless.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

I have wanted to buy this for a long, long time, but the girl at Sephora said it was only ok, and recomended Benefit's Lemonade. Well, Lemonade is a concealer, not primer. It didnt work, and I purchased it thinking it WAS and it had to good word of several Sephora employees. (It IS a nice eye concealer, tho) Now, to this product. It comes in a very handy (and cute) lip-glos-like tube. It is creamy and kind of a nude color. I like the texture and you cant tell you have it on. I put this on just before i left the house this morning (around 9:30 AM) and then let it dry. This is the perfect time to put on blush. Then, i put on my eye shadow. I could feel it go on differently, like it was holding on. It didnt effect the color at all. Now, its 11:07 and it looks every bit as good (and so does my eyeliner) as it did this morning. I have SUPER oily teenage skin, and normally halfway through a school day I look...scary. To say the least... BUY THIS PRODUCT. NOTHING has EVER made my eyemake up last so long, and look so beatiful. If I wasn't going to remove this tonight, I would bet it would still look good in the morning. :)
I LOVE this product. It is the greatest thing ever and I have four tubes in use. I apply it obsessive compulsively.
I have super oily skin, and i breakout if the product is cheap. I LOVE this stuff. I use it at night in the winter and it keeps me from drying out. In the summer, its too gentle, but whenever i get the bright idea to change cleansers and they dont work, I go back to this and it clears it right up. A definate lifetime product.
I recently had my hair dyed red. I know red hair is a hard shade to maintain, so I purchased the Redken Color Extend shampoo and conditioner. I wash my hair daily, and I haven't experienced any drying whatsoever.In fact, its been the opposite. My hair is softer, shiny, and healthier. It doesnt get weighed down any at all. I used to have blonde highlghts, but my red has faded a bit there,bu now i have lovely, natural looking strawberr blonde streaks! I think this makes it more realistic, if anything. My only complaint is that the bottle (the liter) is way too big for my tiny hands.I even dropped it on my foot! OW! You should definately try this, maybe just not the liter!
UPDATE: I still have this product, like 5 months later. I switch a lot because I find this to be lacking. My color does fade, (not as much with drugstore brands) even my basic brown. My caramel highlights look nice, but my once almost black-brown hair now looks like my natural light brown color. I'll finish this out, but NO repurchase. There must be something better out there.
