Wow! I am pretty impressed with this. A self-professed product junkie, i've tried them all. I love that it's light, oil free and has SPF 15 in it. Also, it has a nice scent that really makes a great start to your day. Lastly, it adds a little subtle shimmer. IMPRESSED and affordable. Much better than my $45 Kiehls moisturizer...

Great silicone product for smoothing out frizzies! Can be a bit heavy if you have fine hair .. I would reccomend pacing yourself when using this! I have tried drugstore brands and salon brands - almost all are the same. $7.49 CDN and does not test on animals. Awesome! Will repurchase!
hi! I love MAC Studiofix but after using it since high school and finding that it was showing up looking more and more obvious and not covering as well.. . I switched to GET EVEN #1... it's got a big yellow tint to it but it is a MIRACLE. Awesome on my combination skin - evens the skin tone right out! Beautiful! Highly reccomended
I was a devoted MAC Bronzer addict for a while but I found in the daytime (when I find I need the MOST bronzing) the sparkly particles of the MAC Bronzer fell into my larger than average pores and made me look older and awful! In comes HOOLA...attracted by the cute packaging (albeit a pain in the butt when you are trying to apply in a bathroom - would've been better with a flip up carboard top)... goes on smooth, blends nicely... matte... a little on the pricey side... but worth it.
Bought this product after reading reviews on MA... must say I am pretty impressed! Bought the shampoo too - I have overstressed.. dry.. overprocessed hair and I have noticed a big difference in texture and I no longer need a leave in conditioner! only gave it a 4 because I'm not sure about the smell..nice but too soapy
Bought this product on a whim! (i.e. convinced by a salesperson in a weak moment) and totally regret it. While the gel feels nice on your face, and the smell is nice and the packaging is cute.. the product sucks! it does not moisturize at all...and I think it makes me break out. I have to keep re-applying it. I gave it to a friend with clearer skin than me and she suggested that this product be called "makes NO difference" as it did nothing for her skin either. Definitely will not repurchase... going to stick with my Marcelle HydraC

This product is a disapointment compared to the body lotion as it has virtually NO SCENT whatsoever and leaves behind no scent. Okay body wash overall but don't expect to smell like vanilla bean after using this one!

Wow! Ordered this off of ebay (I'm in Canada - no BBW :( ) after reading reviews here and I LOVE IT! Yum! It is the perfect blend of vanilla-caramel-cookie.. gotten so many complements on it and very moisterizing! Will be driving to the US to get some more soon!
I love this stuff! I have combination skin and I just started using it recently since the weather here in Canada changed to be very very hot! My skin has the tendency after washing and moisturizing looks moisturized. Then I put on some bronzer or light powder and I get dry spots by my nose and forehead. I put a little bit of this on the so-called dry areas and it disappears! Lasts all day. Wonderful product just a tad $

Oooh I love this moisturizer.. my friends call me the product queen b/c I own SO many diff't moisturizers.. now I'm hooked on this one. I have combination skin with a tendency to break out. Since I started using the Hydra C-complexe line.. my skin has cleared up complete and is soft and moisturized! Nice texture of the cream.. I just wish it wasn't in a jar.. I hate jars!
Bath Treatments -Got 2 Be - Apple and Soy Body Wash

This is a great, moisturizing body wash. It is reasonably priced and has a great apple scent! It lathers nicely and leaves skin feeling soft and moisturized. however.. I do agree with the others..the bottle is big so it makes it hard to squeeze.. maybe they need a packaging redesign!
LOVE this stuff! .. I hate lipstick and this gives me the perfect natural red tint on my lips.. I don't really use it on my face. My only complain is the price first of all.. a bit pricey but it will last a while. The packaging is super cute but not very practical.. putting it on takes some mastery... as it tends to drip. Highly reccomended!
I really love this vanilla fragrance.. it is sweet & carmel-smelling but not too sweet...has a very creamy smell to it..rich. Long lasting. Let me explain my rating... this perfume is a bit on the expensive side.. but the packaging is HIDEOUS! .. I love L'Occitane's products but the packaging is very old school. Other than that though it's perfect!
Conditioner -L'Oreal - Smooth Intense with Nutrileum

I found this product to be not very moisturizing. I have dry, damaged and dyed hair. I bought both the shampoo and conditioner, but found when I put the conditioner on it absorbed right away into my hair, leaving me no time to spread it around.. Thus I had to use more and more.. I don't like this product at all. Much better drugstore brands out there.
Addicted to my tweezers. Retail for about $20 bucks Canadian..kind of on the pricey side but they will sharpen them for free. Lost mine last summer. So sad.. replaced with a comparable store brand.. not bad. Will buy tweezermans when i get a job!
