Love this product! I use it alone as a polish on my hands because I like a clean natural look. People ask me if I got my nails done when I use it. I love the slight hint of glitter which is barely noticeable and just makes the nails look super shiny. I have used this under Chanel Rouge Noir and it helped against staining. I find that it lasts at least a week before I need to redo them. Definitely makes my nails stronger.
Great great product. The "Milk" is an opaque creamy-ish liquid cleanser that does not foam and is incredibly gentle on the skin. At first I was hesitant to purchase because of the price and I could hear the product loosely sloshing in the bottle but it really works. This product in conjunction with the Lise Watier Thirst Quenching Fluid and the Total Moisture Night Creme Gel is currently working wonders at clearing my, formerly broken out, combination skin. I encourage everyone to purchase the kit! A little pricey but I will definitely repurchase since it really works!

Loved this at first but like the Strawberry Body Butter the scent is too cloying and I will not repurchase. Very moisturizing! If you have dry skin and can handle the strong scent this is a great product for you.
Like others below I'm kind of torn. I have rebought this product so overall I like it. It's a light red gel that looks really pretty on lips under a balm or gloss. The packaging kind of sucks. The twist at the bottom takes so many twists and the product takes a while to pop out. and when it does too much comes out.
Love the colour. Got so many compliments when I wore it. Chips easily and requires a lot of coats. Love it anyway :p

Cult classic that I keep repurchasing. It has no lasting power but I love love the colour and the packaging. I really like the lightness of the product. If only it had a bit more staying power it would get the full five lippies.
Hair -The Body Shop - Ice Blue Revitalizing Shampoo

Bought this after seeing the sales girl's super shiny hair but it didn't work for me and I found it drying. Love the scent.
I really like the way this product deodorizes feet however it has never strongly exfoliated the bottoms my feet which is disappointing. The tops feel a little smoother after use. I wear it overnight with socks on.
Received this as gift as part of the pocket pal set. I really like the benetint end. I use it only on my lip, always under a balm or a gloss. Still figuring out how to use it on my cheeks. The gloss that came with the pocket pal, however, is disgusting and started to smell oddly after a couple of uses.
I really wanted to like this and bought 2 big bottles of this at a deep discount at Winner's. Definitely would not pay the full price for this product. I find that I need a lot to moisturize. Very average moistuizer. I don't find the scent particularly strong.

Love the way this moitsurizer works but after finishing the tub I decided not to repurchase because the scent was sooo strong. Takes a while to sink it but definitely softened my skin. The product was quite heavy and would be great for anyone with dry skin.
Love this stuff! The wonderful orange scent wakes me up and I keep buying it over and over again. Have given this product to people with super sensitive skin and they love it too. I have the Sweet Lemon shower gel and I really like it too but Satsuma Shower Gel is my HG shower gel. Plus for some reason this product is almost always on sale. Great gift and great for me!

I used to use this back in the day and Iiked it but the coarse texture of the grains makes me a little nervous. I have read before and I'm sure below people have mentioned that this product causes micro-tears. Now that it includes salicylic acid I decided to start using it again. I use this as a facial scrub only once a week and leave it on my face for about 20 minutes after. I also use it as a body scrub ocassionally. Definitely smooths my skin and came highly recommended to me. So far so good but I am using this sparingly and with caution.
Treatments -Clean & Clear - Advantage Acne Spot Treatment

Have been using this under Lise Watier Moisturizer and I really noticed a difference in my skin which was really damaged. The dark spots from older pimples are slowly fading. No dryness but perhaps this is because I have been using it under a moisturizer. I used to use the Clean and Clear Gel so I decided to try this product (with fine tip) on a whim. I really like the texture and packaging of the product.
Way too harsh for my skin. I wanted to like this and I bought this as part of the 3 part system. My skin was very broken out and oily on the sides and I thought that this would help even up the texture unfortunately it only agravated my skin turning it red and making it more oily when I stopped using it. I don't use a toner now and I see a huge improvement in the texture of my skin.
