A-mazing. I have eyelashes that are so straight that they curve down, and no mascara had ever kept a curl in - even Lancome and Dior failed to set a curl. But a pump of the eyelash curler and two coats of Full and Soft Very Black, and my eyelashes are long, thick, and dark, without any clumps, and with a curl that holds all day, even in the most humid, rainy weather. My only gripe - it is MISERABLE to get off. No matter how much I wash it off with soap and makeup remover, the mascara stays on, coming off in tiny amounts unless I douse my face.
I've always had extremely healthy hair - thick, shiny, generally devoid of split ends. Then I went off to college, and I had to buy shampoo at the store on campus. I used Ice Shine for a month or two, and HUGE split ends had appeared in my hair, which was no longer shiny or manageable. Easily the worst product I have ever used.
Obviously, the whole sticking-your-fingers-in-the-tub thing doesn't really work, especially because this is an acne treatment and shouldn't have extra bacteria added. I've found that toothpicks work better than Q-tips. I'd heard of this product as a treatment for under-the-skin acne. And that's the only time it works - on those nasty, painful pimples that haven't emerged. Usually, if I use this when I first see or feel the pimple, and if I apply this constantly, the pimple doesn't emerge and heals pretty quickly (4-5 days versus the 3 weeks it takes for my pimples to heal). But it definitely doesn't work on any above-the-skin pimple I've tried.
