Would I buy this product again? Yes, Yes, and forever Yes!! I've been using mineral oil (baby oil) on and off for most of my life. About a year ago, after trying 100's of moisturizers and cleansers I decided to try going with JUST oil. Oil to moisturize, oil to cleanse. I can say with 100% certainty that it has changed my LIFE. I have clear and glowing skin now, something I have not had probably since I was about 11. No clogs, no blemishes, no nothing. I dampen my skin, I massage the oil in for 1-2 minutes, I use a warm washcloth to remove it, leave the residue. Usually I pat a bit more on for moisture. Done:) I can use plain old baby oil, many prefer and unscented version available at Target.com or Garden of Wisdom to name two. Some also use the laxative version, but it's too thick for me. Anyway, if your skin has issues with every moisturizer and cleanser you have tried, if you have clogged pores, if your acne prone, if your dry, whatever, TRY THIS. Mineral Oil is NOT bad for skin. Google "cosmetic grade mineral oil". Best thing I've EVER done for my face:)

I tried a sample of this on my hand, it burned. Need I say more? Too many extracts IMO
I can't be without this "burnt onions on your face" smelling oil. It literally "fixes" my skin. It's soothing, healing, and moisturizing. I use it every night, sometimes alone, sometimes mixed with moisturizer or other oils. If I use a new product that I get a reaction from, clogged pores or a breakout, the Neem gets rid of whatever the issue is faster than anything I've ever used. It's a keeper! But again, as the other reviewers have said, the smell is downright nasty. Oh well, the "smell" of beauty!! :)

This is hands down the best eye shadow I've ever used, high end or low end. It stays on all day, doesn't crease at all, has great color payoff, looks beautiful!!! Easy to apply, great little quads. Love it!

This broke me out terribly, and FAST. Bad stuff for me!! It's a shame too, good color payoff, pretty colors.
Too glittery, to pink, to hyped.
amazingly, I like this a lot. Don't like the cap, feels loose all the time, and very overpriced, but no clogs, no breakouts. I've been using this about 3 weeks,I have very reactive skin, so 3 weeks is a good stretch for me! Looks natural, good color match, stays put, washes off easily, really good coverage too. Will update in a month or so. Clogs and Breakouts:(

I've only been using this for about two weeks, but I felt compelled to write a review after reading the others. After 2 weeks, my skin feels and looks the same. The only plus right now, is I'm pretty sure this isn't breaking me out/clogging my pores, but other than that, my rating is middle of the road. I don't find it moisturizing enough for the brutal winters here, but I think it would be great for summer. I will finish the bottle and edit my review, but so far, not that big of a deal. I'm mainly excited because it hasn't broken me out. Yet.
I'm actually surprised I like this. It's a good everyday mascara. I don't like the original Great Last at all, I never saw what all the fuss was about. I bought this because I like big brushes, and it's cheap, so I figured what the heck. Good color payoff, removes easily, a nice, natural thick lash.

I call this hairspray "dirt in a can". No matter how lightly I spray it, how hard I shake it, or how I spray it, my hair looks and feels disgusting within 2 hours. Smells dirty too. Not good.
This was really one of the worst mascaras I've tried, and I've tried lots. When I first applied it, I checked to see if anything was actually on the brush, there is almost nothing to it. I guess it would be ok for a really, really natural look, but for the money, it's going back to the store. I think they are trying to latch onto the wave of popularity for the original Lash blast, but I've tried many lengthening mascaras that are much, much better.

I'm not knocking this product, but I wanted to warn clog prone/sensitive skin types, this product was a disaster for me. The texture/smell were fine, but after using this 2 nights in a row, I've been dealing with clogged pores, red inflamed skin, underground pimples, and itching. It was horrible for my skin, which is acne prone/sensitve. Unfortunately I listened to the Sephora SA who told me this product would be wonderful for "my skintype" Thank goodness Sephora accepts returns, because for $50.00, I would have been very upset indeed if I couldn't get rid of it!
The advertising for this product really caught my eye, "Breakouts and Wrinkles? No Way!!! " I said, yup, that's me!! I of course had to buy it, though I don't "need" it. This cream/gel feels wonderful going on, it makes my skin feel like Velvet. I've been using it for about a week now, everynight after cleansing. EDIT: Breakouts! Another one in the bin.

seeing Lizzys review of this reminded me to do one. I was stupid enough to buy this at the rec of a facialist, and it is overpriced junk. Did nothing for my skin but dry it out, and I later found out that most of the people that sell it are independent reps for the company, so stay away from this monumental rip off.

I never saw this a BBW before, and it was on sale, so I picked it up on a never ending search for a heavier moisturizer that dosn't eventually clog my pores. I've been using it for a week now, and I really like it!! Leaves my skin soft and dewy Alas, breakouts!! BOO
