I'm on the fence with these. I decided to give them a try, but thought they were pretty pricey so I purchased a box on ebay for way cheaper than what they go for in store. It only took a nail or two to really get the hang of applying them. And the finished product was actually pretty cute. I got the houndstooth pattern because I'm an Alabama fan. I put them on my toenails because I figured on my fingernails would be overkill. I could do more than one toe from one strip because the strips are so long, so I had a lot of leftovers. I put the leftovers back in their hard plastic package, then in the small bag they came in, then a ziploc bag. Today I pulled out the leftovers to do my toenails once again, and they're all dried out and unusable. I know it says they dry out once opened, but you would think in that much plastic, they would keep. If S.H. can find a way to keep these from drying out once opened (because let's face it, even if I had done all finger and toe nails, there would still be leftovers) then I'd probably buy them again. But until then, this won't be a repurchase. I'm really glad I didn't pay full price for these.

I got this as a free sample and was surprised at how well the color matched my skin tone. It's really smooth and goes on easy. However, it's very hot where I live and I sweat a lot and this doesn't seem to hold up to that. It would sweat off and didn't look so great after a while. I think I'll probably stick to wearing this in winter. When it's on, it's great... if it would just STAY on.
I agree with the person who said the wand comes out dry like there's nothing in the tube. I've been on a quest to find good mascara and this is definitely on the"no" list. I mostly look for lengthening mascara and decided on this one because it said just that. I like the small brush. I've had really thick brushes in the past and found the difficult to really get to all the lashes. But the brush is about the only thing I like. It seems like the product is too dry to apply and when I do get it on my lashes, there's no added length at all. I've tried many different ways to apply, with the same results.

I absolutely love chocolate scented body products. Ever since Bath and Body Works did away with Temptations, I've been looking for another chocolate gingerbread scented body wash and/or lotion. I came across this in Walmart this week and had to give it a try. It has a really nice lather to it and it makes the whole bathroom smell wonderful. It's a really light chocolate, not too overpowering. It didn't dry out my skin at all. I like the size of the bottle and the fact that it's thin and easy to handle. I will be going back for more. Can't beat it for the price. Now if they'd only make it in gingerbread!

I LOVE this scent, but I tend to love all of the "novelty" type sweet scents from BBW's Temptations line. I have the lotion and the 3 in 1 and would definately buy again (and hope I can find the lotion and spray on my next visit). It's a very sweet scent and I can see how some would be turned off by it, but I have yet to smell the "plastic-y" smell that others are talking about. I think this is one of those scents that is good to wear if you want a sweet smell, but you don't want to smell like you just rolled around in dessert.
