Most people have been using this as an eye cream but it's a treatment, not a moisturizer. If you are using this for your eyes, then you should also be dabbing on some eye cream over it. My experience with this treatment is that it worked for me. I do not have any wrinkles or fine lines around my eyes. I can tell after using this product 2x a day ( morning and night ) the skin at the corners of my eyes were plumper and looked dewy. I used up the entire large tube which took me about 2+ years and I see that the skin around my eyes are brighter. I can see that if I continue using this I may not get wrinkles as quickly as others my age. I dab a bit of Obagi eye gel on top for moisture.
Really pretty gloss that goes well over nude lipstick to give a polished look. Feels great by itself for a quick shine. Its not too sticky ( like lipglass which I cannot stand to wear ) It is slicker in texture with just enough to hold on top of lipstick. This is a nice neutral gloss that gives more warmth than clear gloss. I can see this color being flattering on any skintone. Shimmery without glittery particles so it looks like a nice even smooth shine. Very pretty.
Makeup Brushes -Stila - #17 Retractable Bronzing Brush

Aside from what all the other reviewers have said about the letters STILA rubbing off early in the game... The brush itself, after numerous washings and drying...does not shed and stays soft. This is definitely a high quality brush. At first, I thought it could be a tad softer and felt scratchy, but it is actually very good for bronzing and blush since the brush hairs pick and hold onto pigment. A very soft brush may blend well, but may not pick up pigment well enough to hold and buff into a desirable spot. My casing has not fallen apart yet so I am just reviewing the function of the brush itself.

Nothing special really. It is thicker than vaseline and and yet less greasy. I bought it because it was all the rave. During the winter it does not really moisturize as well as the cheaper chapsticks because a few windy moments and this stuff feels like it has evaporated away.
I guess if you dont wear makeup then this would be a good cleanser for winter time. Other then that...I think soap and suds is needed to remove all the makeup and city pollution that can accumulate on your face at the end of the day. Doesn't feel clean after washing because it sort of leaves a layer of film on your face...which is the moisturizing part of it. So good for winter mornings. Or summer when you want to wash your face with something but not necessarily strip the oil. Definitely not for evening cleansing or those who wear foundation.
