I adore this gloss. I work in the cosmetics and beauty industry and let me tell you that I have tried more than my share of lip glosses and lip products. I balked at the idea of paying $25 for a lip treatment or a lip gloss, but the formula, ingrediants and scents of Freshs' lipglosses and the spf 15 lip treatment is amazing to say the least and has completely cured the dryness I have experienced on my lips in the past. I am SO happy and will continue to purchase both as they last a long time as well!
This balm is fast becoming a top favorite for me! Very moisturizing, and the texture is so smooth and soothing. I used to only apply it at night before bed, but I'm finding I grab it during the day now too. I apply it with a lip brush because a little goes a long way and I don't waste a bunch soaking into the tip of my finger as I apply it. 8-)
Love, love, love this color! This is the your-lips-but-better shade I've been looking for. It's SO TRUE that "you know when you find it!" - the tip about your "best" lipstick shade matching the inside of your lips is right on too, because this shade is mine and it works! 8-)

I like this gloss, but only when I apply a tiny bit over my lip balm so I get a sheer pink look. If I just swiped a bunch on like you can with many glosses, it is Barbie Doll and too much pale pink for me. Applying it like I do though, I will always keep this gloss in my kit because it livens up my pale complexion!
Hair -Kiehls - Olive Fruit Oil Repairative Hair Pak

I will repurchase this product. Very moisturizing, but doesn't weigh hair down. This comes in a jar and I like that. Starting to prefer them to bottles and tubes because you can scrap all your money's worth out of them! Also, the price seems a bit high at first, but the tub is large and a little goes a long way.
I'm glad I got a sample of this cleanser first, because I wasn't on the market for a cleanser at the time and wouldn't have ever thought to purchase it. The rose scent was very appealing, although shocked me a little the first couple of uses. I look forward to using this cleanser, although, for the price, I rotate it with my other cleansers and just look forward to using it again!!
Shampoo -Burt's Bees - Super Shiny Grapefruit and Sugar Beet Shampoo

Love the packaging, great looking bottle. Smells yummy, enjoy that it comes from Burt's Bees, and is more natural than some other shampoos out there. Leaves my hair soft and shiny. As does the matching conditioner.
Love the metal rollerball! Very cooling sensation upon application, and my lips feel moisturized. It sinks in very fast, and doesn't leave that thick waxy coating some lipbalms have. I like this for under lipglosses and lipsticks, and I will keep an extra one on hand.
I really like this conditioner! The smell is awesome, I'll use it just for that, but I'm very pleased to say this conditioner works well for me too! I can use it as a regular conditioner in the shower, or applied to wet hair and braided for a deep treatment, AND I like to add a tiny drop (mainly for the smell) to the ends of my hair to smooth them. I will be trying more grassroots products after such a pleasant experience with this one.
Skincare - Face -Kinerase - Kinerase C6 Peptide Intensive Treatment

I wondered about this product for awhile, but since my skin is very sensitive and breaks out at the sight of a new product, I had decided to wait. Then I received a sample of it, and thought, well, I'll at least try it. Glad I did! When the sample ran out I went right out and purchased the full sized product. That's how much I think this is doing for my skin. The texture of this treatment is great, very light and smooth and sinks it amazingly fast. No greasy after feel, and my skin actually does look much more eventoned and radiant. Haven't been able to say that of a skin care product in a long time. Feels great under my moisturizer too, not like I have a million layers of stuff on my skin.
Run screaming from this product! I returned this the day after buying it. My eyes are STILL red and inflammed! They feel and look like I've been badly sunburned!! I know it was this product that did it because it has been the only new product I've tried lately. For everyone this works for, awesome, but be very careful if you haven't tried it before. The lady who did the return at the store saw my eyes and said she'd never go near the stuff!! I wrote this review as a warning, hope it helps.
I'm an exfoliation junkie, so when I say I've tried a lot - I really mean it. I have 2 I like, this and Kiehls new Dermatologist Solutions microdermabrasion scrubs. If I alternate the two, they are both worth every scent. (Kiehls is $40). As for Dr. Brandt's, I waited a long time before shelling out $75 for a scrub. Glad I did though, with a light hand, this stuff makes my normally red skin glow. Use a light hand and a touch of warm water for slip and it's yummy lemonheads candy scent will make for some soft skin!!
Top/Base Coats -Creative Nail Design - Super Shiney high gloss top coat

Wow, what a great top coat! I bought it based on the reviews here and I'm glad I did, thanks MUA'rs!! High gloss, dries fast, and I've banged my perfectly polished tips a few times and having this top coat on has helped me avoid a few big dent diasaters! Very nice, I'll definately keep using.
I love this beautiful lipgloss! Sheer, yummy strawberry/cherry flush of color. Brightens my face and smells just like canned pears. I always keep this in my bag to waken up my face and soften my lips. Pretty good staying power, for a gloss.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Imperiale Repairateur Moisturizing Eye Balm

This eye balm has many uses! Moisturizes the skin around the eyes as well as cuticles, lips, eyelashes and eyebrows. I use this as an eye balm once in awhile when my eyes are feeling especially dry. I use it daily as a lip condtioner!
