I tested the "Dawn" pefume at Ulta and loved it, but did not purchase that day. I had several scents on and wanted to come back another day with a blank slate. I loved it. Such a light floral scent. Which suprised me as I am more of a musk wearer. This is just so light and airy. The only reason I gave it a 4 is I found that I need lots of sprays to have enough scent. I even confirmed with my Hubby that I didn't over do it. With say Chanel 1 or 2 sprays is plenty. With this I need 5 or so. But I really like it. I would purchase it again. Sephora didn't have it at the time I purchased it. Not sure if it's only sold at Ulta. Also I thought $38.00 was a great price. Overall a great scent that I can't imagine anyone would find offensive.
I have used these products for about 6 years and love them! I don't have any major skin problems, but I do have the occasional blemish. I only use the sytem at night and find that is all I need. I have dry skin and use a good sunscreen/moisturizer in the am. This is a miracle product for me and I don't ever skip a night. I take the little mini kit when I travel. Not sure if I really even need this product, but do not want tochance stopping it. I want to keep my clear skin :)))

I love, love, love these products! I have been using BE for about 5 years. It took some getting used to. I never thought I would use this type of product. I have tried just about every liquid foundation on the market. I am a true make-up junkie and I will never go back to liquids again. I have dry skin and have never had an issue with the foundation . Once in a while I have a small flaky patch that after a few minutes seems to melt away (maybe the oils in my skin come out a bit). I think if you give this product a two week trial you will fall in love. I have all BE products even the lipstick and gloss and have no complaints. As far as the jars and messiness the pay off is worth it. I like a heavy coverage and find that I can achieve that look without looking like I am wearing a mask. As I have light skin I tend to like the soft focus warmth over the warmth. Good luck!

This is the only thing that has worked for me consistently. I have lived in two very dry places (Alaska & Mojave Desert California) and this is the only product that has kept my lips moisturized. I also buy the strawberry scent. My husband also uses this and can't live without it. I am only giving it a 4 due to having to put fingers in the tin to apply.
