This did not make my face look any different than before. All it did was make my make up rub off SO quickly. It kind of broke me out and the next day after using I noticed my face would look dull for a day ot two. Will not repurchase. Kind of disappointing after all the rave reviews.A better alternative id bare minerals mineral veil. I've used it as a primer resulting in a nice smooth finish.
This product is DISGUSTING. When I put it on it made my face so tight and dry and btw my pores were still there after my face began to develop some oil it was even oilier than before. I looked like a put crisco on my face. I literally had people asking if i put oil on my face thats how bad it was. I bought this $45 piece of crap to control the oil and it made my problem worse. Oh yea on more thing the scent was very nausating just plain ick ick ick. Oh yea mooore thing for all you ladies who bought this to reduce oil I have the solution :put even more oil on your face. I've found that extremely oily skin is the result over washing (to remove the oil). What happens is your skin goes crazy from the lack of oil that it starts to create even more oil. Putting oil on your face will regulate the oil excretion and will not be "greasy". For those of you who want to know the oil will not break you out. The rumor that oil break out your skin is a lie circulated by the skin care industry to scare you into buying their products but honestly ladies all you need for beauty in right in you cabinet. I recommened castor oil (for acne), rosehip seed oil (for scars and aging skin), and quality olive oil (like the brands flora or bariani) for improving condition, softness, and a dewy finish. I know I got off topic but you can also use the oils as a primer just make sure you use a tiny amount (like a drop or two).
This product is crazy expensive. I mean COME ON $60 for a damn relaxer!!!!! I got index 2 for my 4a/b type hair. I wanted to love this product that when it didnt work for me the first time i convinced my self it was something I did and like the idiot that I am I convinced myself that it was something i did and shelled out another 60 flipping bucks for this damn product. CURSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This product isnt all bad though it has it good points and bad points. Thats why I gave it a two insted of the zero it gerenally deserves. This product DID NOT: -get my hair bone straight just got it kinda wavey (like a texterizer) -but it did not dry out my hair or cause breakage like other relaxers used to do to my hair - didnt make hair limp This product DID: -make my hair seem healthier after using it (its almost like it conditioned it). -made hair shiny and had bounce -put a SERIOUS dent in my wallet Even with this relaxers good points I'm still unsatisfied. I bought this crap to make my hair straight. Damn it to hell if it made hair shiny I didnt buy it for that purpose. If I wanted my hair shiny I would have used my conditioner. I've heard that creme of nature NOURISHING relaxer is good but I havent tried it so i cant vouch for it. I will be relaxing my hair in a week or two so I may be using it. I read that it gets the job done and doesnt make your hair as dry as other relaxers.I'd like to point out however that it probably WILL damage my hair though cuz no matter what relaxer brand you use it does damage your hair. Relaxing is the most DAMAGING and DRYING chemical process one can do to ones hair. It break down to hair shaft to make it straight leaving hair weak and limp.
Wicked oooooh I just love the name it makes me feel like a very bad girl. This polish is a deep dark red (almost black) vampy-sultry color. It looks really good against my NC45 skin tone. I feel so sexy when wearing this. My only gripes about his is that is stains the nails (but what dark nail color doesn't) so I have to wear a base clear polish before applying and the shine is lovely but only last for about a day or two. It takes about 3 coats to get the color in the bottle but I use that much anyway with any old polish. Also I've gotten a few compliments on my nails while wearing this. Dont be afraid on the color it the bottle I can see it flattering a large range of skin tones.

I LOVE THIS LEAVE IN!!! It truly moisterizes my dry relaxed 4a/b hair. For tangles I take a big glob and saturate the knot with it when it dries the knot detangles so easily with my fingers. I love how a little goes a long way with this product. I dont really use products I'm more of a natural hair care chickie (herbs instead of shampoo for cleansing, oil rinsing for lush hair, dont even use store bought conditioner i mix up every thing in my kitchen) but I'm never with out this product. I've repurchased this twice and love it so much that I bought two large liter sizes online (good prices). I'm so happy the ingredients are natural no parabens, sulfates, cones, or 16 letter words I wouldnt even attempt to pronounce. This is some good stuff people... some really good stuff. :-)
I'm really in love with this gloss. I've been wearing it for years and i've repuchased it two times. If you dont eat anything it will last all day not like other glosses I've used that dry up in 2 hours time. The whiteish/pinkish/goldish gloss looks lovely on my nc45 skin tone (golden/olive). I took off one lippy though because its very sticky (not very kissable) and sorta expensive($16) for a little lip grease.
Did nothing good ole chapstick couldn't do. Dont waste your hard earned money.

I LOVE THIS MASCARA!!! Although i have long eyelashes they are on the thin side. This super mascara make my lashes long AND thick. I didn't find this hard to use at all and I like the fact that it a conditioner attached. I took off one lippy though because it does clump (but really what mascara doesn't) I most definitely will repurchase.

I first came across this product when I was hanging around the Vitamin Shoppe with a friend of mine (she was looking for hair products). When she got what she needed and was walking toward the cashier to pay I noticed the Burt's Bees stand and saw this product. I just picked up the one formulated for oily/combo skin and bought it on a whim. I didn't really expect major results but my skin was having major breakouts all over so I thought " what the h-e-double hockey sticks" and I bought it. Let me tell you this is a miracle product, from the very first night I noticed a change with my skin. After using it for a week (twice a day everyday) I noticed a significant change it my skin. Another thing I love about this product is that it doesnt dry out my skin no matter how times I use it in a row. I'm not saying I have dry skin because its quite the opposite but sometimes I would use a product and it would make me oh so dry thus making my already oily skin even more oily! arghh!!!! For its effectiveness I dont think this product is expensive at all (I only paid about $8.00). The smell put me off the the first time I used it though but I quickly got used to it. I highly recommend this product to all you beauties who are in a pimply situation cuz believe me my sweeties your skin and your confidence with improve tremendously! :) Edit: Even though I liked this soap I now do the oil cleansing method.

I bought this product about 3 months ago and used it here and there not really sticking to it so I thought the reason why it wasnt working was because I wasnt really using it as I should, but about a month ago I decided to stop being lazy and use it every moring and night. I really really really thought it would wotk but so far I see NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL.This product didnt help my skin but it didnt hurt it either so I've decided continue using this product and I will post my finding in about 2 months
This product does work I must say. It made my skin baby soft but I took off one lippy because of the smell. Its disgusting. I smells like a whole but of incense burning all at once. The container says cinnamon but I really dont think thats what it is. Even it smells bad it really is a good skin treatment. Its ok but I would not but it again.
