i started using this product about 6 months ago and i havent put it down. the packaging is a little odd but its nothing you cant get past. some people on here are having a major problem with having to put your finger in the pot... ah, do you have a sink? i usually wash my hands after i apply makeup anyways.. and besides its not like its anything gross- is shimmery makeup (oh no) i think this bronzer gives you that little shine and color like when you have spent the day outdoors. nothing too strong. other bronzers give me a dirty look but these just look fresh..
i used this product to take my hair from light brown w highlights to a dark brown color. everything went well until the grand reveal... my dark brown color had turned out RED!! not to mention the damage that had been done to my almost perfect hair. my hair was in the best condition its ever been in prior to use of this hair color and when i was finished it was a big ball of mess. dont waste your money. the colors are wrong and the product is harsh.

beginning hair color: light brown with blond highlights box color used: dark chocolate (40 i believe) lets start off by saying that i havent colored my hair alone- ever. i decided about 3 days ago that i would go dark for the winter. i was bored with my own color and my highlights had grown out leaving me with about an inch of root noticeable. i started my quest yesterday at my local target. i stood in the aisle for about 30 minutes with a 3 year old, he and i picked up every box that was even remotly close to a dark brown. we decided on 100% color in dark golden brown. im always attracted to the girls on the box with nice hair. i got home and used the color. 30 minutes later i rinse, i blowdry, i turn up and ... RED! ahh. i hate red. not only is it red but the color didnt even color my roots. in fact, my roots were now lighter than the light brown they started at. how is this possible?not only that but my hair was dry and matted. i should have read the reviews on mua - but i didnt, silly me. i slept on it.. hoping after my morning shower i would have a change of heart... nope, still red. so i tossed my hair in a ball and put on a headband( to distract from the patchy red mess atop my head) and i went on another trip to target. i decided that 100%color was not for me. i had read the good reviews on garnier and decided to attempt this once again with a more praised hair color. once again spending my afternoon at target, i strolled the aisles avoiding anything with the word golden because obviously GOLDEN=RED... OBVIOUSLY. how did i not know that? thats like nicknames that have nothing to do with your real name. crazy. anyways...after 20 minutes of trying to decide between truffle and chocolate- i pick dark chocolate brown (40). i get home and toss on my gloves. mix,shake, apply... ding... rinse, condition, blow dry. i look up and at first it has a slight mortica addams look to it but as the initial shock wears off i notice that i have very shiny multifaceted healthy looking color. its a little dark but i expect it to fade out a little in the next few weeks. i think it will end up being a color i really like. ive never really colored my hair at home but even with the 2 trips to target it cost me way less than going to the salon.. and that includes the 2 thomas the trains i HAD to pick up for my helpful partner..
Gels/Soaps -Olay - Ribbons Body Wash with Jojoba Butter Ribbons

i bought this because im a product junkie and pretty much anything new i will try out. i bought one bottle and got one for free- normally that sounds great. i used this product for about a week before i noticed the funk that was growing in my shower. everything was purple and filmy! ew... but i sucked it up and used the rest of the first bottle. then i noticed that when i rinsed my razors off in the bath water there was chunks of body wash coming from those as well.. thats really gross- chunks! needless to say- it was thrown out. the time you are saving moisturizing in the shower is being spent on your hands and knees with a scrubby and a bottle of comet.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Body Lotion Extra Dry Skin

i love this lotion!! if they made this in scents like bath and body works that would be just perfect.. the smell is kinda strong but it settles down after about an hour or so. its kindof a musky scent- reminds me of mom- but its not bad. its something you can get thru to have your hands feet and body feel like silk. this is the first time i have bought this lotion but i will buy again.. i had used calamine lotion over the weekend and it dried me out really bad. after 2 days with the quench i was back and better than normal!! this lotion rocks!
i just bought this in a makeup overhaul.. i love it! just a little dusting on my cheeks gives me that alive look. im pasty white and it makes my skin look really fresh and healthy. it was quite cheap for the amount you get. the packaging is a little tricky.. i just left the sticker pasted on 3/4 of the holes that allows the powder out.. so its only letting out a bit at a time. i could see where it could get messy.

i think i just found my hg.. im throwing a party! i didnt want to review this untill i had used it for a few weeks to see how my skin reacted but i only waited a week and im convinced!this weekend i broke out in hives (not from the makeup)and my entire body was covered in splotchy red marks. i was sent home from work and i layed on my couch for several hours.. anyways i got up from the couch and i passed a mirror- my skin still looked flawless on my face! this stuff stays on forever and it never gets oily and yuck it stays pretty all day.at night you have to wash it off.. ive never had to wash it off really- all of the other makeup melts off of my face.i live in a really humid area and i work in a high paced restaurant environment (sweaty and sticky and gross)and it still stays put! not to mention it hasnt made me break out.. not even one pimple. oh amazing lasting.. youre the best!
