I love this stuff! I got it originally for gingivitis to help with sore gums. Not only has it taken care of that, it's also whitened my teeth considerably (which I think must be the hydrogen peroxide). Best of all, it's relatively mild so it doesn't burn! Will repurchase.
Repurchased this after going years without using it. It's better than I remember. I don't know why they market this as a volumizing mascara, but that's not why I purchased it (I'll stick with Diorshow and Clinique High Impact—my HGs—for dramatic lashes). I was in the market for something that would give me adequate length and volume whilst still looking natural. Full 'n Soft fits the bill. It lengthens my lashes and has this—I'm not sure what else to call it—feathery effect that's understated but still pretty and polished. It's relatively easy on my lashes as well, unlike other mascaras that really take a toll on them after awhile. Definite keeper.
I have horribly acne-prone skin. I've tried just about every sunscreen on the market hoping for something with SPF in it that would not break me out. I had no such luck until trying this. I'm so thankful I decided to, because it has proven the only product with SPF that doesn't send my skin into a spotty frenzy. It provides a decent amount of moisture but it would not be of much use to someone with extremely dry skin. True, it has mica in it (hence the "glow" bit of "Morning Glow") and the consistency is slightly gritty when applied, but this doesn't bother me. I loathe and despise all things shimmery or glittery, but I can't see the shimmer in this unless I look reeeeally close. Overall, it just makes me look healthier and awake, which I love. Will definitely repurchase.

I was in the market for a blemish concealer that had a small amount of SA after trying Aveeno's and being disappointed in it. Neutrogena's version is much better. The color appears natural—not chalky or orange—and is easily blended. I didn't really purchase this hoping it would dry out acne; all I wanted was a concealer that would look natural and wouldn't make my acne any worse. This is on the pricy side at ten dollars, but it is worth it to me!

This is my holy grail deodorant. It's not marketed as a product for serious odor/wetness protection, but it works the best out of everything I've tried—including men's products—for normal activity and working out. It does indeed go on virtually clear for me and the scents are great (Orchard Blossom is the best!). I hope they never stop making this stuff.
I bought this with few expectations. All I was looking for in a concealer was the highest SPF I could find for my undereyes. I never expected it to work so well! This is by far the best drugstore concealer I've ever tried. The coverage is very good without being chalky or unnatural looking. It covers my dark circles completely, and the brush helps me put the right amount of product in the inner corners of my eyes if I need that as well. I also use it to cover a few blemishes and some nose redness, and then my face is done—no need for foundation. Thought it's rather pricy for a drugstore concealer, this was definitely worth it. I will most definitely repurchase.
