I'm not sure, but I think this cured my eczema. Every winter, from when I was five until I was twelve, I used to have really bad eczema on the crooks of my elbows every winter. Then, when I was about twelve, they started carrying this at the local Giant Tiger. My mom picked some up for her use, and said that I should use it for my rash, so I tried it for a week or so, and it cleared up. I haven't had an outbreak since then, although it's possible that I just grew out of it. I also used it on my inner thighs when I had a bit of chafing there. Anyways, the product smells nice, and goes on smoothly. It has the consistency of... of... something between ketchup and peanut butter, I guess. It takes a bit of time to dry, but when it does, your skin feels like velvet, as someone else said. I have no idea what it costs, but considering my mom bought it and she usually saves her money, I'm guessing it was worth the price.
I picked this up today at Jean-Coutu, and WOW! What a bright, warm red! This is exactly the kind of colour I've been looking for. It doesn't seem to show the lines in my lips as much as my Rimmel lipstick does, and it doesn't appear to be drying. However, it tends to come off fairly easily. Also, it cost me $4.99 CDN, which isn't bad, but I've heard people say that they've found it for under $3.99. There's no smell, which I like, but I'm wondering how I'm going to sharpen this thing, since the product is so soft. Either way, I'd call this a good buy.
I had to get a red lipstick for a school play a while ago (I was playing a '50s-ish character). My mom came along to help me. I wanted to get a Revlon one, and she wanted me to get a N.Y.C. one. The Revlon one was too expensive for her ("You'll only wear it once! Why spend $8.00 on something like that?"), and I couldn't stand the smell of the N.Y.C. one, plus it was more pink than red. By chance, I looked at the Rimmel shelf, and I saw a bunch of these babies. I ended up getting it in "Red Hot", which was perfect both price-wise and colour wise, and this ended up being my first red lipstick. I still use it when I can. This product goes on nicely; it's very creamy. It has an odd smell to it, though. It's kind of cinnamon-like, but a little bit fake-sweet. It's kind of like those cinnamon heart candies, but less spicy. It wears off quickly, though, so no worries here. Just smelling it reminds me of doing my makeup in the music room, ready to hit the stage. Ah, the memories... I find that if I don't have a lip balm under, it tends to dry me out a bit, but that can be fixed easily. In all, this is a great buy. I think it was around $4.00 CDN when I bought it, and it's a nice colour.
