I don't like the smell. It makes my feel dry,and tight, even after moisturizing. Too expensive to continue buying for lack of results.
I really wanted to like this. I used it one time and I won't even bother using it anymore. It goes on ok but it left my skin sticky/tacky feeling, even after 10 minutes. Not moisturizing at all. If I still had the receipt I'd be returning it.
I received this "kit" as a sample. I should have read the reviews first. The first two days I used the face wash and the hydrating treatment. The face wash was nice. The treatment was heavily scented!!! I mean it was like a citrus smell, made me think of Jean Nate'. It did keep the oiliness at bay. By day three I had a pimple or two pop up and I spot treated using the acne treatment.I used it day 1 and day 2 skipped day 3. I woke up day four...my face was swollen and my skin felt sooo tight and sore. My cheeks were splotchy. I feel like I am feeling the effects of a bad sunburn days later. Tight, dry, very sensitive...I just want to douse my skin in moisturizer. Nothing is taking the tight feeling away... PLEASE do not use this product! Thank goodness it was just a sample and I didn't spend any $$ on it.
I was on a hunt for a good body lotion as I was tired of buying, trying and wasting time and money. So I got on the web and looked up "How to find a good moisturizer" I read what it said about a good product having certain ingredients to be moisturizing. I wrote them down and went shopping and was surprised that Gold Bond was one of a VERY few that had these ingredients and by comparison was cheaper than the ones that did. I bought it, used it, and I will never use anything else! It's long lasting, smells good and moisturizes well. Love it!

I bought this in Pink and at first I really liked it. It was soft and creamy, although it didn't have good staying power. After using it a few days though it started feeling rough. I finally looked at it and realized it was because there were huge bits of gold gitter in it. It scratched my lips. And what came off on my lips looked like toast crumbs. If this had been more of a gold shimmer instead of gold glitter it would have been nicer, I definately won't repurchase.
My hair is what I call bra strap length and is also dyed. I was on the search for a good smoothing conditioner. I had tried many of the more expensive store brands and they are good but as I said expensive. I saw the commercials and thought they were really corny but I thought I'd give it a try, if it didn't work I wasn't out much. Well to my surprise my hair was sort and shiny after using it! I didn't find it hard to comb my wet hair either. Great product and I will buy this again. I took one lippie off for the design of the bottle, as it is hard to open. I can't wait to try other Aussie products.
I purchased the Glazewear Extreme in Charmed rose and Classic Nude. Charmed rose is much brighter than shown almost a raspberry pink. It wasn't as glossy as regular glazewear. Classic Nude was more of a whiteish taupe color. Not at all flattering.. I will not buy any of the Extremes again for one major factor. This stuff burns my lips! Not a problem that I had with the regular ones.
I like brown eye shadows, but not this one. This looked nice online and even in the pot but on me...no way! Too orangey, it made my eyes looks sore. I tried it both as shadow and eyeliner. I won't purchase this color again.
I have never been real fond of bronzers but seeing the word "soft" in the name prompted me to try it. Sadly this was too pale for me. Barely if at all noticed I was wearing it. I won't purchase again.
I can't remember why I chose this color but I am so glad I did!. The first time I tried it though was awful. I didn't really have the right foundation color yet and I also applied too much. Now however, I love this for a summer look. It gives me a just spent the day in the sun look. Just a little goes a long way. I will continue to use and by this color!
Lotions/ Creams -Avon - Planet Spa -African Shea Butter Whipped Body Balm

I had actually ordered this before coming here to see reviews. I hoped for the best. The product itself it great. It does what it says. BUT the fragrance isn't bad if you like smelling like candy. To me it's a sweet toffee coated popcorn smell, just as another poster described. I don't like sweet fragrance or to smell like food. I am giving it to my granddaughter who thinks it great (she's only 10). But I will not repurchase and continue my quest for a great shea butter lotion. Tammy
I tried this because I had a coupon. I was greatly surprised because I didn't expect a whole lot. I was sooo wrong! I love love this moisturizer! I have not had the problems with the beads not melting, maybe it's because I use it right sfter showering. It really has made a difference in my skin, even my husband thinks so. I love the fragrance, although I do wish they made an unscented formula for those who can't use a product with fragrance. I do love the pump dispenser too. I would and have purchased this again and again. I have even purchased Dove coupons off Ebay just so I could buy and stock up. Tammy
I got this as a free sample, so you could say the price isn't bad. I haven't checked to see how much it really costs though. I love it! The color is intense. And my granddaughter said I didn't have spider eyes anymore. Gee, I never realized I did before. My lashes actually look like lashes in the mascara ads. No clumps! I really like this...but then again I have been only using it for a few days...if things change I will update.
While in the Dollar General the other day I happened to see this product and remembering what I saw here I thought I'd give it a try. It's only been a few days but no new breakouts. Also on the plus side it was only $4! They also had the body lotion which I may try too.
