i cannot describe how much i love this hand cream!!! i have very dry hands that are prone to eczema. but after using this, the eczema disappeared completely! other hand creams that i've tried in the past didn't solve the problem, or felt too sticky/slimy/heavy/gross. this cream's consistency is perfect because it is not sticky and feels very light. smells great and not too overpowering too! packaging is perfect! love it!

good for sensitive skin! this product can last me a really long time too! would prefer the packaging to be in a tube instead of the pump though.
personally didn't experience anything good or bad with this product. just made me feel good using it. ?_?
Moisturizers -Avene - skin recovery cream (US name: cream for intolerant skin)

highly recommended for extremely sensitive skin! i had eczema on my face twice, and on both occasions, the eczema disappeared completely after using it for only a week! (the reason why i had a relapse of eczema is because i switched to another brand.. bad choice.) i don't think i will ever switch to any other brand of moisturiser again. the only downside to this product is that it feels a little heavy on the skin.
i bought the cherry one because i love the regular Lip Therapy Advanced Formula, and just wanted to try out something new (both of them cost the same anyway). the only difference with this one is that it tastes sweeter, whereas the other one has no taste at all. other than that, there really isn't any other difference from the regular one.
Lip Treatments -Vaseline - Lip Therapy Advanced Formula

i've repurchased this product at least 4-5 times already. my favourite lip balm ever ever ever!!!! i use it every morning and night and it stays on for a good amount of time (i don't need to apply it throughout the day). it makes my lips feel very comfortable and prevents them from drying or chapping. don't know how i'm going to live without this product. it is also very cheap! however, this product could improve if it had spf. on top of that, the lip balm always seem to become more watery towards the end when it reaches its last few drops, which can feel quite gross to me.
Eyeliner -The Body Shop - Glitter Eye Liner Mascara Integral

did not like this product at all! the eye liner was very clumpy and coarse. to top it off, the gel-like consistency of the liner started to "separate" and clump together after 1 hour! my eyes looked like they had bits of hardened glue stuck to them. super gross! horrible experience! i'm scared to use it again. the mascara end was the only redeeming factor. it provided a subtle 'sparkle' to the lashes. however, i recommend only layering this on top of your regular mascara as it does not provide volume or length. and only use very little product because piling on too much will make your lashes turn white! and apply the glitter strategically too - mine came out looking as if there was dust/dirt on my lashes instead of pretty glitter.
Mascara -Maybelline - Unstoppable Mascara [DISCONTINUED]

average everyday mascara! - provides sufficient length and volume - does not smudge or flake under 8 hours - does not feel brittle but can look a little stiff - occasionally will experience some clumping - relatively difficult to apply
love this mascara! - very easy to apply - provides BOTH good volume and length - looks quite natural and soft - not brittle/stiff - does not flake - does not clump - easy to remove at the end of the day the only downside to this mascara is that it smudges horribly on me. maybe the waterproof formula wouldn't smudge as badly but i've yet to try that one out. and of course, this mascara is not as cheap as drugstore brands.
plus points: - good everyday mascara - does not clump - does not feel brittle or stiff - provides sufficient volume - does not smudge (on me) - relatively easy to apply because its bristles are very short minus points: - does not provide enough length - non-waterproof - don't like the orange & bulky packaging ^_^
overall a good mascara. indeed gives very defined and "slim-looking" lashes. didn't experience any clumping at all. the wand makes application super easy and enjoyable! however, this mascara would be perfect if it could provide more volume.
would NOT recommend this mascara because: 1) very difficult to apply due to it's huge brush 2) makes my lashes feel brittle and stiff 3) clumps very easily 4) flakes easily 5) not very water proof plus points: 1) very dramatic lashes
this eyeliner only starts to smudge on me after about 7-8 hours. the only problem i have with it is it's packaging.. the twisty concept makes it quite difficult to control and apply.
