After using one whole jar of this stuff, I feel like I am entitled to make a review. I really like this product a lot. Eventhough the consistency is of a hard butter, it does not sit on my skin and my eye area feels very mositurized. It has no perfume and it never irritated my eyes. I didn't have many lines around my eyes to begin with, but I feel like the regular use of this product may have prevented the fine lines from forming.
I have been using this gel for the last 2 months now. The packaging looks really cool and the gel when applied goes on very smooth and light and I like the feel of it. But if you even apply a smidge more of it it turns white and flaky. It did nothing for my black circles. I don't have lines under my eyes, so I can't comment on that. I need an eye cream that is little more moisturizing than this.
I just love this color. On my nails it appears as a shimmery, metallic pink with some coral in it. It goes on very smooth.
I have been using this in lotion for about a month now. I really like that watery feeling, it is not greasy at all and moisturizes fairly well. But still, I hate the smell. For now I am not completely sure of this product.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

I have been using the deluxe sample of this from sephora for about a month now. I am pleasantly surprised by this. I have combination skin prone for break outs. It is very gentle, does not dry my skin and cleans my face. Most important, it does not irritate my skin at all. I am planning to buy the full size after I run out of the sample.
The cream itself feels very light, sinks right in. Feels very moisturizing. That said, it is highly fragranced, doesn't do anything for black circles. I don't have any wrinkles yet. So I can't say if it does anything for them. I would not buy it again and probably I would go back to my LP eye contour cream.
Lip Gloss -Urban Decay - XXX Slick gloss in Carney

I have recived this in swap from a lovely swapper. The color is pretty pinky with shimmer. It comes in the cutest little pot with a purple tassle. I didn't have any trouble with the lid as others have experienced. As per the consistency of the gloss, it goes on very smooth, not sticky at all, feels a little bit oily. I love the way it feels. But I am a little hesitant about this product, since its first ingredient is petrolatum.
This is a very pretty sheer pink. The gloss itself is not sticky, feels moisturising. I love the color. It is really nice either with the lip pencil #16 or worn alone. It has good staying power for a gloss, on me it stays until I eat or drink something. But still I think it is very overpriced.
I have been using Nail envy for about 8 months now. I always had weak and brittle nails (sigh). This product really worked for a while, my nails were stronger and better than before. But lately my nails started peeling and splitting again and they are yellowish (ewww, which they weren't before). So I decided to stop using it.
What a wonderful product from Sephora!!! It has a fine grit but does its job so well. I have sensitive, weak nails prone for splitting. Until now the "regular" emery boards were too harsh for my nails. But with this little jewel after filing and shaping my nails are left so smooth.
Treatments -L'Occitane - Shea Butter Nail & Cuticle Cream

Best cuticle cream. It is very thick and concentrated and lasts for a long time. It moisturizes my finger nails and cuticles and my toe nail cuticles very well. Thanks to this product no more dry flaky cuticles for me. This is my HG for sure. Eventhough it tends to be on the expensive side, I don't mind spending the money for a product that works and lasts a long time.
As other reviewers said it is a silvery blue with lots of shimmer. I love this color on my toe nails. I can't wait to see how it will look on my finger nails.
I have acne prone, combination skin. My skin tends to get dry patches sometimes, may be due to all the acne medication. Anyway, in those times, I apply this mask for about 10 to 15 minutes. It feels so nice and makes my skin soft. No breakouts yet. Then again, I never leave it overnight. I will update my review if I see any changes. UPDATE 11/23/04 - For some reason this one stings my face after application.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream

For now this hand cream is my staple. I have very dry hands and this cream seems to be doing a nice job of keeping them soft when nothing else worked. It is a very thick cream with a pleasant baby scent. I can see why its not for every one because of its richness. But at $20 it is very expensive for a hand cream.
I have this in Nude. I love it. When you first apply it, it feels very smooth. It doesn't dry your lips and it is very moisturizing without feeling sticky or goopy. It has average staying power. This color actually looks good on my naturally pigmented lips. I can pull off with wearing nothing else on my lips. I will buy this again and would love to try in the other colors.
