GREAT SCRUB. Variety of gentle, regular, acne prone. Makes my skin feel refreshed and vibrant.
FABULOUS! I am an Esthetics student so skin care is important to me. This product works great. It's so affordable too. Great all around.
I like the convenience of this product. Wipe and throw away. I also like that it doesn't have that 'smell' most STs have. I have really olive skin and this didn't make me much darker. I'm wanting that hot Carribean look. Maybe I need more applications. The price is kinda moderate but I wish it worked better for me.
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipstick in Sugar Honey 183

I LOVE this lipstick color. It's golden/bronzey shimmery sheer. I use it everyday. It looks great with a tan. The only downside is the cost! I think it's way overpriced. I think I'll be looking for this on E**Y b/c I want to keep using it.
I think that this is a great product. I went through my first jar in about a month. I'm now on my second. It is very moisturizing and the scent lasts. However, it is VERY overpriced. As far as it's moisturizing property the same can be acheived by using Palmers CoCo Butter. Which they have unscented now so you can wear it under all your perfumes. To achieve moisture and scent this product gives, I use the unscented Palmers and then a little of this product on top so it lasts.
Primer/ Corrector -BeneFit Cosmetics - Dr Feelgood

This is a weird product. After reading many positive and negative reviews on it I decided to get it myself. A positive effect that I've noticed is after putting it on my skin does feel powdery smooth. However, when actually applying this product it feels like it's smothering my skin. It's like putting dry vaseline on your skin or something. As far as it's purpose of primer.. a good moisturizer works better than this. The container is a pain as well. I would not buy this again. It's called Dr. Feelgood but my skin feels bad. =(
I really like a lot of Benefit products. This cheek tint is ok but could be way better. If you have a dark tan this product will barely show. It's better as a winter color. I don't recommend using this on your lips because it kinda drys them out. A plus is it has a nice scent..roses. Also one doesn't have to use much so a bottle would probably last for 3 years. A downside is if you use your fingers to apply..b/c the applicator brush is weird..you'll have pink fingers for the rest of the day. This is not a product I would buy again. I have one I'll probably never finish and got another one for Christmas. So if you're wanting to try this product to form your own opinion I've got one on my swap.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! Of course I don't really use it as an all over bronzer because it's shimmery. However, I do use it as a blush and it looks fabulous. I have a dark summer tan 'Fake Bake' and this product is dark enough to actually show up! Plus I use skin highlighter, so this is just the right about of shimmer as well to go along with my sunkissed look. I can't stress how great this product is and for such a FABULOUS price!
At first I loved this perfume. But then I began noticing it would wear off quickly and change in scent the longer it was on my skin. At the end of the day I always had an awful headache. Anyone else experience that?
Personally I dig Benefit however, this just DID NOT go for me. The brush made streaks on my face so I switched to a thick blush brush.. still too cakey looking. I normally like bronzers with a little gliz and this is pure MATTE brown. I'll stick to the liquid bronzing Revlon Skinlights. Only 12 bucks, works great, and gives my skin a bronzing glow.
