Dried out face and made it itch. Gave me acne too after just one usage without much application. Lightest shade still too dark for me. Not a fan.

Seems to take oil off face. Only stopped using because derm. told me that these actually have chemicals in the that make you produce more oil and clog pores.I do admit I have less acne since stopped using them!

Love this! The fragrance grows on you if you're not immediately a huge fan of it. Very moisturizing and I love the slight tint. Chapstick that appears like a gloss! Very convenient that you can get it in a tin or in a tube!
Good while it lasted but within a month it flaked when applying. Dried lashes out and irritated eyes.
Use as chapstick at night and it totally softens my lips. Not the most pleasant if it gets in your mouth but careful application and its good. Also helps if you get scratches. Being clumsy I have my fair share of bumps and bruises. Moisturizes skin and prevents scarring. Best use at night as its kinda sticky.
Love this! Very soft and creamy. Never dries out. Use with Great lash clear mascara (after application) to keep on lashes. Will keep buying! on my second full size bottle after a trial size! For around $15 its not much more than drugstore and seems better quality.
Like acid for your face. Really. It cleared me up back in '09 from very SLIGHT acne. (the typical teenage stuff) it stopped working, made my face red, and made my face literally hurt along with swollen eyes suddenly after a few months with no adverse reaction. Stopped it and my face broke out horribly, nothing would help. Now a few years out and attending a dermatologist I'm finally in a better spot. Talking to a makeup consultant I shared my experience and she backed me up actually saying she had just taken a class that discussed it and the products in it are so strong that they desensitize your skin. (so basically no other product will work for a few years/months) Believe it if you want, but I do. This stuff is utter, pardon my frank language, crap. Wouldn't put this on my face again if my life depended on it. It also seemed to age my face as weird as that sounds. Using it as a pre-teen it made my soft pretty innocent skin turn harsh, oily and made it look older. Weird sounding, but true. Use with caution.
Waterproof left rings under my eye immediately! Didn't even last a half hour. Verrryyy sad product.
Nice, has a slightly minty spell. I'm not really a fan of the truly wax-like feeling. Other Burts Bee's balms (like the tinted ones) have a creamier and more moisturizing texture. It works to apply before a lipstick or gloss but doesn't do much to moisturize. Generic Chapstick would be better for that.
Not bad, not my favorite either. The mascara does its job but doesn't hold curl very well and got in my eyes. Doesn't smudge under eyes though which is a nice perk. No packaging issues, and easily layered although it flakes by date-time if you apply in the morning.
Nothing bad, nothing good. Will remove makeup and I actually like the sent. You have to rinse well and take care of the bottle or else it dries into a sticky mess! Didn't clear my skin up by any means but a cheap way to get rid of your makeup! :)

Not a bad foundation. I suggest asking for a sample at your local sephora. The little tub they give you will last you almost two weeks of trying it out. I'm the lightest shade for all you fair ladies- had no problem with it but did wish it was a tad lighter. It looks flawless and evens skintone but turns to an oily mess half-way through the day. If you don't worry about breakouts or oil then this is for you. I'm not that way. I have dry splotches (which it clings to) and oily spots. I like it, but won't actually go back and buy it by any means.
HORRIBLE. Cannot express my dissatisfaction with this product enough! It completely ruined my nails. I've never had nail problems, in fact very little chipping or maintenance. I'm the girl who can grow them out to look like fake nails with no problem. This, made my gorgeous nails peel, chip, flake and look horrible. I thought it was just a bad bottle- It wasn't considering all 3 I own do this to me. OPI & Essie are a million times better. Chanel needs to stick to perfume and purses!
Beautiful product! The color can be light or you can add up. Looks VERY natural and pretty, not orange. My only complaint is that trying a mini size it lasted little less than a year of almost everyday use and broke apart when I dropped it within the first couple months as did the accompanying blush. My fault, but I wish that the packaging was a tad better. Overall something everybody needs to try. Theres no dupe that even rivals it!
Bought this product in a small compact featuring Laguna Bronzer (amazing) for christmas. All the hype is well deserved. I absolutely love the color. You can have a slight natural flush or brilliantly peachy cheeks. I've tried to find a dupe cheaper and nothing compares. My only complaint is that I had a small version of this (so about half the size) and it lasted a year using almost everyday. Its far to say it fell out of my makeup bag within the first months and broke the makeup all apart. My fault, and I was still bale to use it, but it would be nice to have better packaging for the price.
