I love this stuff. Received as a gift from a dear friend. It's highly glossy, shimmery and has a color that works very well with my skintone. I'm pale and I have brownish blondish hair and it somehow makes my face look slimmer. I also love the taste and smell. Sorta like an orangey chocolate. Yum!
Let me just say I bought a tester and that's how I got it so cheap. Approximately 15 for the 3.4oz is reasonable since I'd never sniffed it before. When I sprayed it on myself, the smell in the air was familiar. I've smelled this before. On me it reminded me of a combination of fruit punch and acid reflux. I'm not trying to be funny here. But.. after an hour on my skin it dried down to the most sweetest fruity scent. So for that it's worth it. Would I buy it again? No... this bottle will last me forever. The only complaint is that the cap doesn't come off so it's hard to distribute into tiny to-go bottles for my purse.
I wanted a Cool Cucumber scent not a Cucumber Melon scent. Good moisturizing shower gel though, and a little goes a long way.
Feels good on hands and skin. Very moisturizing. A little goes a long way on a poof. Smell reminds me of Philosophy's Breast Cancer Charity body wash. I mean, dead on for me. This is cheaper, but I buy both for the charity.
Smells great in container! After initial spray on my skin it dries down to a plastic-like smell. Almost a burnt plastic. Wish it didn't do that. Ah well! Bad chemistry I guess. Using as an expensive air room freshener.
Tickles my lips when I apply it. Nice scent. Tints my lips well. Doesn't last very long, but I've gotten so many compliments I don't care!

Smells like a burnt cupcake on my skin.
This scent makes me smile. Reminds me of a good childhood memory. When this 1st came out, I'd stockpile samples from department stores and sell a few on EBay just to make the trip worthwhile. Now that the frenzy has died down, I've begun to really appreciate the scent. I don't normally like apple scented products but this is genuine. When I'm out of my samples I'm going to buy a bottle.
I cleanse, tone, moisturize every day. Exfoliate a few times a week. I have moderate rosacea and a pimple every now and then ('round that time of the month). This is the only stuff that works on my face. Seriously. I do have oily skin and I read somewhere that it works best on Combo/Oily. Thankfully I've finally found something that covers up my pink cheeks/chin without streaking or maximizing my large pores. I haven't ventured into their eye or lip stuff yet but maybe someday.
This is my absolute favorite for summer '06. At first I was put-off by the lemony scent which fades after the dry down. Don't get me wrong, I like citrus just not a super powerful lemon. It lasts reasonably long enough on my skin. I love the sweet sugary dry down, very fresh.
I miss this stuff. I've run out of my large bottle and the smaller 2oz bottles. I wish they'd continue making it. Best 2in1 body scrub 'n' cleanser i've ever bought.
