I received this product as a gift. I love the smell of it but don't really like the product itself as it is awkward to use. I find that the majority of it ends up on the bottom of the tub. I am guessing it may be good if you use it with a pouf but I am not that type of gal.
I found this to be a decent cleanser but it states that it can be used to remove eye make up. It BURNED like crazy. Would only recommend if you don't plan on using near the eye.
Eye Makeup Remover -Isomers - Totally Tugless Makeup Remover

I had the same experience as the other reviewer. I am from Canada and it is cold wintertime but I keep the product in the house - HELLO (slam against company - not other reviewer...). I bought this product in a kit and went to use it for the first time. It was rock solid with a tiny tiny amount of liquid. I was so shocked by it that I came here to see if anybody else had used the product. Would NOT recommend.

I started with light brown hair with blonde highlights, tried the Champagne on Ice and now have a weird mousy brown all-over color. I've never had hair dye go so badly ever and I have been using hair dyes for about 20 years. I DO NOT recommend this line if you want to achieve or even maintain blonde hair color.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Mosiac Blush-Blushing Berry

This is a highly pigmented multi-coloured pink shade. Its actually quite close to the natural pinkiness I get in my cheeks. So my routine is putting on mineral powder to neutralize the redness and then putting on this blush and then because it is so highly pigmented, I follow up with the mineral powder again. Lasting power is decent but not great. I used up the entire pan and would buy it again. In the meantime, I have three other blushes to try that were just waiting until this was gone. As I said - it is highly pigmented, which means it lasts a long time and is good value.
I have been using this shampoo as an eye makeup remover in the shower. The results have been mediocre. I still need to use a separate eye makeup remover afterward so it is really only good as a first step if I have a ton of eye makeup on. There are better products out there for that purpose though.
This mascara does a great job of lengthening, thickening and separating the lashes all at once. You can get the desired outcome with minimal effort. There are a few other mascaras out there that I prefer the results from but this is definitely worth checking out. I would repurchase in the right kit/offer but not as a stand alone purchase.
Mascara -Bourjois - Volume Glamour Ultra Black Mascara

This mascara does an amazing job of making your lashes long and dark. I really thought it lived up to my expectation regarding performance. My only real complaint is that it seemed to get dry/clumpy faster than most mascaras so the shelf life isn't very good. I would definitely repurchase.
I got this cleanser in a kit so I am not really sure how expensive it is. It is one of those cleansers that I have sitting in my shower waiting until all my other cleansers get used up just because there is nothing really exciting about it and I don't have any other great skincare products from Borghese to match it up with. That being said, every now and then I decide to use it and I am always AMAZED at how well it removes eye makeup. Of all the cleansers in my shower, it is probably the one that works the best. But despite the fact that it works so well - I just can't get excited about it for some reason. I do wish that it had a flip top rather than a screw lid - maybe that's my hang up.
This product does a decent job of removing makeup if you apply it to dry skin and then wipe it off. It doesn't work well in the shower - which is where I usually cleanse my face. The big problem with it is that it leaves a film over my eyes that makes it impossible for me to see. Then I need to use a separate eye makeup remover to remove the film and the rest of the eye makeup it didn't get off. I just ended up throwing away about a third of a 12 oz container because I just couldn't stand it anymore. It is good enough for cleansing the rest of my face but I prefer a cleanser that removes eye makeup.
Loose Powders -Quo - Total Perfection Mineral Powder
loogie 2/10/2008 4:30:00 PM
I got this in Medium and the colour is right for me. I normally use light foundations so the colour scale is a little strange in this line of mineral powders. It is a decent mineral powder and is talc free. I use it as a stand alone foundation. It provides good coverage however it does make my face more shiny and shimmery than Pur Minerals or Physicians Formula. The packaging sucks in my opinion. It has a mirror on the top and then when you open it up, there is a sponge applicator. The powder automatically discharges from the applicator. If you remove the applicator there is an open compartment. I didn't really like the delivery system so when I ran out of PF powder, I put it in that container so I could use a sifter and my chisel brush. Once I have used it up, I have no plans to repurchase, mostly because I don't like the shine it gives me.
Scrubs -Bath and Body Works - True Blue® Spa Take Your Sweet Time Sudsing Body Scrub

This scrub has the best white almond scent ever! It smells to real compared to other almond oil products. The scrub itself is good - light sudsing with enough scrubbing action that you can feel it. I agree with another poster who referred to the flimsy bottle. My bottle is kind of permanently compressed and it makes it difficult to get the product out.
Mascara -Borghese - Superiore State-Of-The-Art Mascara

This is a good mascara. It lengthens and thickens. The problem is that it takes a while to get those results since the brush is big and bushy. There also is a ton of excess mascara on the tip of the brush each time I take it out of the tube. I would say this mascara is worth a try even though there are others I like better.
I got the mini tube in the TSC beauty bag. I agree with the others that is seemed like there was hardly anything in the tube. It is an okay mascara - it provides average colour, thickening and lengthening. But it takes a long time to get those results since there is hardly anything on the brush. I kind of had to use the clumpy mascara on the tip of the brush and then brush it through the lashes. Will not purchase this mascara.
I just tried this product and was surprised by the quality. Normally drugstore mascaras don't do anything for me. What I found was that the brush was kind of wirey so it really separated my lashes and made me look like I have a ton of lashes (ie super thickening power). It didn't really make my lashes look overly long compared to other mascaras I have tried though. This one is definitely worth trying!
