I have purchased Instant Eye Tuck 3 times, not for under eye bags but to reduce appearance of wrinkles/creases. It works well, just a tiny drop massaged into CLEAN SKIN, and it definitely improves appearance-similar to the results from silica or albumin containing products, but this works much better. I have had no success with applying it over or under moisturizer,concealer or foundation, ends up flaking or balling up. I bought the Illuminating eye cream once, I didn't like it-contains mica and caused itching and redness. I do agree with other posters upthread, some of these glowing reviews are a bit too good to be true.
I found this to be way too musky for me, very clingy as well. Packaging was attractive.
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight Shampoo [DISCONTINUED]

Used in conjuction with the conditioner and this worked nicely on my very thick, frizzy, curly/wavy hair when dried naturally. Relaxed it quite a bit, made it shiney and soft. When I comb out and air dry, it really flipped the ends alot tho (ala Marlo Thomas in "That Girl"!) However, did not make it significantly straighter, and when straightening with the iron, it did not seem to make much of a difference or improvement. The scent was pleasant enough. Price was good, $3.28 at Walmart. I would likely buy again.
Ok, I also got this as a free sample, so price is not an issue. I applied as per package instructions and my right eye looked great. It was more difficult with the left I ( I am VERY right-handed) and found it hard to maneuver the bulky applicator over the bridge of my nose. I have very dark hair and eyes, my lashes are lighter in color and the tips are especially light. I felt the color wasn't dark enough, so I added a final coat of Lash Blast, and loved the results< especially on the lower lashes! Came off easily enough with facial cleanser and water, but was kind of freaked out with those tube things coming off, looked like mucusy eye eyelashes, and I was sure all my lashes had fallen out! (they did not) I would probably buy this
I really like this mascara! Makes my lashes look long and full. I hate masaras that don't wash off easily, but this stuff completely removes with no problem. It does not flake or smear or smudge. I have also noticed that my lashes seem softer and healthier since I have been using it.

This is the WORST product I have ever used -bizarre packaging -foul smell -caused horrific acne of forehead above eyebrow, actually raised my eyebrow up with swelling, and did not resolve for days AVOID THIS STUFF

I ran out of my usual cleanser, and have had this for awhile, but never tried it, so I gave it a try and was well pleased-it removed all the make up easily, was not over drying and left my skin soft and smooth. Plus I like that cloudberry scent...

LOve this stuff, am nearly out, went to repurchase, and drugstore.com no longer carries it, so went to Neoteric web site- was immediately alarmed to find it with NEW next to it (always a bad sign on a good product) not sure if they changed the formula, bu they have reduced it from 12 oz to 6 oz, and it seems that the price is the same as it was for the 12 oz. If anyone knows of another source for the 12 oz, I would love to hear about it.
I have been using this for 2 weeks and am well pleased. Some broken capillaries and reddish acne marks have faded to nothing and a skin tag has vanished! Also some old acne scars seem much more shallow As far as a reduction in sagging goes, some modest improvement is noted, I am definitely plannning to repurchase!

After a mishap with a metal eye lash comb (scratched upper lid lash line-too much caffiene and was shaky) anyways, had a small area where I lost some lashes, and they were not growing back, After using this product for a week, I can definitely see a lot of improvement, the are has nearly filled in, overall fullness shown, no significant lenthening seen tho. For $4 from Drugstore.com, I would definitiely repurchase.
This is a lovely floral scent, it smells like lillies of the valley to me. I have been wearing it for years-a beloved Auntie would always give a generous bottle for a Christmas gift. Reminds me of happy, warm spring days. My husband adores it, and has carried on the Christmas gift tradition (tho the Evyan version was superior)
My gram always used to wear the powder. Can't say I like it too much, myself-find it overwheming. A co-worker wore it one day, and immediately caused another co-worker to have an asthma attack. The most redeeming feature is the price and the fond memories of my gram it brings back
I got this as a GWP. ALthough it absorbed quickly enough, it did not "lift" anything and had a curious odor to it as well. I wouldn't recommend this or buy it.
