This lip balm made my naturally rosy lips a strange white shade-- like sunscreen on my lips that does not sink in! I have very pigmented lips, so I think any lip product that has a lighter color is emphasized against the darker red of my lips. However, most chapsticks that have lighter shades do not make my lips white. I wouldn't mind the whiteness so much if the lip balm itself worked well, but it isn't great. I'm probably the hundredth person to write this but, the truth must be repeated: this lip balm is wayyyyyy to damn waxy. It's really too bad that I bought a three-pack of this... urgh.
I have this lip gloss in "rhubarb" and I like it. It's not very moisturizing, but it also doesn't dry out my lips. I didn't notice a problem with the glitter-- mine is just sheer and glossy, not sparkly. I like the pretty crimson-y shade. I just have to be careful not to apply too much! I'm not a big fan of the price (it isn't amazing enough to be worth $5.00)... so I deducted one lippy and will only repurchase again if it is on sale.
I love the scent-- it's so fresh and makes me feel really clean! It works really well and I only have to apply it once in a day. It isn't as creamy and moisturizing as Dove's cucumber and green tea deodorant, so I'm only rating it four lippies. But, it is a very close second to Dove!
Mmm... it smells delicious. Thank jeebs it doesn't offend anyone! I certainly would not want to be caught wearing a really stinky, offending perfume that would make people around me cringe and feel ill. This perfume is warm and inviting. It's a perfect blend that is great for summer (fruity notes) and winter (musky, warmer notes). I love spraying this perfume on my clothes rather than on my actual skin because it fades into a softer scent and lingers on my clothes until I wash them.
This lotion works wonders on dry patches and never irritates my skin... I know it's not "all-natural", organic, and virtuous, but it works so, so well and it is really reasonably priced. I also use MuLondon's organic and vegan moisturizer periodically when I'm in a worried mood and want to give my skin a break from potentially harsh chemicals.
I live in Canada (where the weather wrecks havoc on any part of myself that is exposed-- including skin, hair, and LIPS). I have used many chapsticks, lipglosses, balms, and ointments, but Chapstick brand is the only thing that I trust (and strawberry is my favorite flavour). I like Vaseline, but it is a little too greasy to wear on my lips. Chapstick is not greasy or sticky at all and works beautifully EVERY time... all it does is make my lips soft! It's also really cheap and sold at almost every drug store where I live.

Whenever I get a little blemish, I use this product. The blemish is gone within two days and there is no battle scar or dry spots left over. This stuff lasts me a long time, but that may be because of the fact that I don't get blemishes often. I like the packaging and reasonable price, too.
This product made me break out... I think I was allergic to it or something. Awful, awful, awful! Never again will this stuff touch my skin! I also dislike that it is a "roll-on" stick... seems a little unhygienic.
I love Vaseline (including their lotions). I don't believe in the cancer-scare that is linked to Vaseline. I know plenty of elderly people who have used this stuff for ages and, at age eighty and up, are still in perfect health. A fabulous, yet affordable moisturizer! I go for long runs everyday and this stuff works beautifully on my calloused feet. The only drawback for me is that I can only wear Vaseline before bed or when I'm lounging around the house due to its extremely greasy texture.

I love the cucumber and green tea scent. This deodorant never irritates my skin and has a creamy, moisturizing texture. It works wonderfully (but then again I don't sweat profusely...).
