I think they recycle barbed wire to make this loofah because this is honestly the roughest loofah I have EVER used. I'm sure it's great for extensive exfoliating, but as for the gentle-moderate elimination of dead skin cells, this is too much.

My hair ADORES this product. My hair is soft, bouncy, manageable, very moisturized, and smells fantastic after I use it. I'm so happy that the time I spent staring at it in Walgreens wondering if it was worth it was not in vain.
Light, floral-fruity scent. Perfect for summer!
I've had my Clarisonic for almost three weeks now, and I am definitely seeing a difference. I never used to break out at all (the gods blessed me), and all of a sudden over the past few months my face has been imitating Mount Vesuvius (the gods smote me). Yeah. That bad. I wouldn't consider myself a vain person, but I'm a girl. A fairly girly girl. So I was used to checking my reflection every once in a while to make sure everything was A-OK, and it honestly got to the point where I couldn't even make eye contact with my reflection anymore. I'd tried everything, and was approaching absolute desperation. I'd heard about the Clarisonic, but the price tag made me hesitant. I decided to get it through Sephora (in Peony!), and crossed my fingers. I'm seeing such a tremendous difference in my face over the past couple of weeks. Yes, I did experience purging for a little over a week when I started using it. But now I'm starting to see the results I was waiting for. My pores are smaller, the texture of my skin is baby bottom soft, and the clogged pores are clearing out as well. The recurring pimples on my forehead are being wiped out, one by one. I can't find much to complain about, aside from the price and the fact that my skin is now a bit oilier than it used to be. But it's been worth it. There isn't a noticeable difference between the two speeds, so if you're torn between the Mia and the Mia2, just go with the Mia and save a couple dollars. I picked the Mia2 because I liked the colours and I wanted the travel case. I'd recommend this product to persons looking to clear out stubborn clogged pores and get their faces exceptionally clean without too much irritation. I would DEFINITELY buy this again!
I got this colour on clearance. I loved how it looked golden-lavendery in the bottle. Next to pointless on its own, but makes for a lovely glittery topcoat. Looks great over nudes!
I LOVE THESE! I'm a China Glaze fan girl, but I always wind up buying these. They're dirt cheap, and their colours are always en pointe with the latest colur trends. Plus, it's like they're infused with Teflon or something, because they. Never. Chip. It's incredible. The only drawback is that they're not Big Three free. Boo.
I get compliments on this colour every time I wear it. Only drawback is that it chips way too easily.
Gorgeous dusty blue creme colour on my medium-dark skin! I wound up having to order this colour online because I couldn't source it anywhere, and I'm glad I did. Perfect for spring and summer.
Pretty turquiose-y blue, very flattering! 2-3 coats for bottle colour. Definitely use a topcoat!

Smells amazing. I challenge you not to jump your boy's bones when he wears this.
Gorgeous magenta colour with shimmer. Try it layered over black nail polish for a beautiful cosmic purple that's perfect for fall.
I was skeptical since I'd heard less-than-stellar things about the original, but this is a great mascara! Great coverage, no clumps. The only imaginable drawback is that the wand's design makes it slightly awkward to apply with your non-dominant hand. I am pretty ambidextrous so I don't have that problem.
This has been my go-to fragrance for years. Absolutely love it.
Immediately upon smelling it, it had this weird, artificial, powdery quality to it that I was certain I'd encountered before but I couldn't quite place it. The more I thought about it, the more it made me think of that weird chemical smell a depilatory would leave behind. Ew. I can't wait to finish this. Absolutely disappointed in B&BW with this one.

I'm not sure how I feel about this. I started taking these a couple of weeks ago, and I've noticed my nails are a lot stronger and growing longer, and I've also noticed that the strands of my hair seem thicker (this could just be me hoping, though). However, the side effects really suck!! I started out taking the recommended dosage of 3 caplets a day, and not only do these tablets make me extremely bloated and gassy, I've been getting horrible migraines every single night since including these in my diet. There is no other possible source, as I've changed nothing else. I've since reduced it to one tablet with breakfast, but I'm still experiencing the bloating. I'm going to finish taking the bottle, but unless the end results are completely amazing, I sincerely doubt that I'll be buying this again. UPDATE 6/20/2011: On the advice of my dermatologist, I've decided to try these again. I've been taking them for 4 days now, and the previously described symptoms have dissipated; apparently, it takes a few days for your body to get accustomed to them. No headaches or bloating! I will update this again once I've finished the bottle. UPDATE 7/20/2011: At the end of the bottle, I've definitely noticed a positive change in the condition of my nails, skin and hair! My nails are a lot stronger than they used to be, my hair has grown a few inches, and my skin has cleared up significantly. My initial response to this product has definitely changed; I would buy this again.
