I've used this for 3 years now, and it's my all time favorite! It reduces my dark circles and takes away all puffiness - what more can I ask for? It has a very soft and smooth texture, feels light on my skin and is a wonderful base for my eye concealer. I have never experienced any burning sensation from it. I will continue to buy this product forever.

I like how this eye cream reduces my dark circles under my eyes and how cheap it is. I don't like the texture of it though (it's very watery, not light-creamy like I prefer my eye treatment to be). It has a sparkly sheen to it, but this doesn't really make a difference to me as I cover it up with concealer anyway. I will not buy this again - I will stick to my favorite All About Eyes from Clinique.

As a concealer it does nothing, but as a highlighter it works wonders. I use this to highlight my cheekbones, cupid's bow etc. It's not too shimmery, just perfect - with a very natural color. As mentioned by so many others before me: it does NOT cover anything, so don't buy it if you're searching for a concealer. It's a bit expensive, so I don't think I'll buy it again. There are other highlighters out there that can offer more product for less money and still look fab on.
I use this lip balm all year long. Like all Carmex lip treatments I love it to death. It protects my lips from long, cold, mean winter months, as well as dry, hot summer days. It looks glossy and nice on without being sticky. It leaves a tingly, cooling feeling on my lips and smells really nice as well. +++ for SPF 15 :)

I adore Rosebud balms, and this was the first Rosebud I bought. The Brambleberry balm is my favorite on the lips, but this one works wonders on my dry cuticles/dry skin in general. I sometimes use it to tame my brows (be careful not to put on too much salve for this use, as it can make your brows look a little greasy - we don't want that do we?) ;) The lovely smell and package are bonuses that make this product close to perfection.

I love, love, love this balm! The color turns out very pretty and subtle on my lips, it's not sticky, it's a bit more fluid than the other Rosebud balms which makes it more glossy and easier to put on (esp. in extreme cold where balms tend to turn rock-hard) ;) I bring my Brambleberry Balm everywhere, and NO I don't think it stinks...my balm smells of roses and berries. I will buy this lipbalm over and over again.
This tint didn't give me a very noticeable color on my cheeks - however; it did come on as more of a natural "blushy" color. I think it looked very natural and fresh on, and it's great for everyday wear. The tint gives my face a light glow, and I imagine it will look gorgeous in summer with a sunkissed face. Don't get this if you're thinking about using it as a nighttime blusher - it's not very noticable in evening light.
