This product can be a tad bit messy, but it is very very effective! I have waxed my bikini area before at home using the wax strips they sell, but this is the 1st time I have waxed without strips. It was much easier than I thought and practically painless. It is much less painful than waxing with strips. The trick is to make sure you apply the pre-wax oil very well over the area you are waxing. The wax does dry up quickly though, so make sure you reheat it as you work. I had to go over a few small areas I missed the next day. Overall, it did a fantastic job and left me with smooth skin in my bikini area with no irritation. Will def. be buying again next month!!
I also this product! It absorbs very quickly and really plumps up my eye area. My under eye area was really dry and starting to get fine lines, but I see a 100% improvement after using this product. ***I did want to mention that when I went to repurchase it again this week ( 10/26/06), the Lancome rep at Macy's told me it was being discontinued! :(

These are great! I have been using them for a month and no breakouts or irritation. They take off all my eye makeup and my sunscreen as well! They leave my face feeling soft and clean. I will definetely be purchasing these wipes again!

I love these wipes! I have been using them for a few years to remove my makeup and sunscreen and it does the job! My skin is very clear also from using these and now my boyfriend is using them also. Very convenient to use when travelling or after the gym.
I love this sunscreen! It absorbs really quickly when rubbed into the skin. It is not greasy at all and doesn't dry me out. It doesn't leave a "white cast" on my face and has not broken out my oily/sensitive skin after 1 month of use. I do not need any mosturizer over this product. After applying the sunscreen, I give it a minute or two to fully absorb then powder my face lightly with my translucent powder as usual, apply my blush and the rest of my makeup. There is no fragrance at all I can smell. I will repurchase this! I bought this suncreen at the website below: http://facialshop.com.hk/servlet/the-2066/Sofina-UV-Cut-Milk/Detail The shipping took about a week to get me in Florida.
This is the best mascara I have ever used. It made my eyelashes look so long and thick and it went on so easily. I love that there is no flaking either because I wear contacts and have very sensitive eyes. I usually hate wearing mascara because it doesn't come off very easily, but this one comes off with 1 swipe of my normal makeup remover wipes. I will be buying this again!
Moisturizers -Biore - Beyond Smooth Daily Facial moisturizer

I started to use this about 8 months ago(oil free version) with the hopes it would lessen my facial hair. I loved the way it absorb's quickly and it has not irritated my skin. I decided to stop using this 2 months ago to see if it did make a difference in facial hair growth. I have to say, in the 2 months I didn't use this moisturizer(used Oil of Olay instead), I seemed to have my upper lip hair growing back much faster between removals than before. I guess it did slow the rate of my hair growth and I have now gone back to using it daily!

My mom got a sample of this when she bought her Night Moisture and gave it to me. I was wary of the product the first night I put it on since it seemed greasy and took forever to absorb in my skin. When I woke up the next morning, my skin was glowing and it seemed a sun spot on my cheek was faded. I was able to use it 3 more time over the course of 2 weeks and I really liked the way my skin looked the next day. I am giving it 4 lippies because of the initial greasiness when it is applied and the price($38 for 1 oz.).
Treatments (Eye) -Mario Badescu - Hyaluronic Eye Cream

I got this as a sample. While it did appear to moisturize without being greasy, it irritated the area under my left eye(made it red with small bumps) and I stopped using it after 4 days.
I got a sample of this when I filled out their skincare questionaire online. I have really large pores and this mask made my pores look almost invisible! I also have sensitive skin and this product did not irritate me at all. The smell is wonderful(yummy strawberry scent!) and it is a nice thick consistency that spread easily. I have been able to get 3 applications out of the one sample. The price is a bit high($18 for 2oz.), but I think a jar would last a long time since I wouldn't be using it daily. I plan on purchasing this product in the future!

I have been using this once a week on my hair for over a year. I really love the way it makes my hair soft and shiny and the smell is lovely. It is a bit pricey, but if you use the product once a week, it last a while.
