I love this mousse! I'm a very fair girl naturally and after quitting tanning I needed something to keep me from being a self-hating Irish girl. I bought it on amazon and got the mitt along free! The mitt is a must have because this product dries quickly and you will have brown palms for quite some time. The smell is present (I have a sensitive nose), but it does not even compare to other self-tanners, especially of the drugstore variety. It dries fast and produces amazing color, but I tend to feel sticky the rest of the day if I apply in the morning. To avoid this, a quick dust over of baby powder does the job. I think the price is worth it. I've used this product almost daily for a month and still have plenty in the bottle. Plus I love the color it produces...without the melanoma risk.

At best this is a tinted moisturizer. At worst it is: a breakout-causing, oily, gloopy, smelly, thick P.O.S. I bought this expecting okay results, maybe the ability to break away from foundation. NOPE. It doesn't smell too good but it fades fast, but it is thick and oily. I have sensitive skin, but rarely ever get a pimple. Within a week, two massive ones have emerged. The tinted part? Barely noticeable. I'd rather shell out a few more bucks and get the Neutrogena tinted moisturizer, at least they are delicate. DO NOT BUY.
Awesome product! The color is perfect for me, and that being so, I wouldn't say it's universal. Anything below a light-brunette I wouldn't recommend this. That said it also perfectly matched my sister who has near-black hair. The highlighter is my favorite, it's awesome to use around your eyes, specially after a late night.

I normally buy MAC Satinfinish but I decided to save some money and give this foundation a shot.I'm not a fan of not having a pump, but it's not too hard to pour the right amount. I'm an NW25, and I purchased buff. It's a little too light on me, but I wear bronzer over it anyway. Overall, it's alright. Not too heavy and looks pretty decent.
I really love this lotion. I normally use it in conjunction with regular tanning, but even on it's own it gives a nice glowy (not orange) color. I'm naturally pretty fair skinned, and find it to be the perfect balance when I don't feel like torturing my skin, but don't want to look like a vampire.

Overall a good product, it made my hair incredibly shiny and soft. However, it does not mesh too well with my thick sicilian hair. I found my hair was more tangly, and the conditioner took especially long to wash out. It became manageable after flat ironing it, but leaving it natural was not an option without 10lbs of detangling spray. Not sure if I'd buy it again, but the other products in the line are amazing!

Very good at clearing up acne! It's especially helpful during PMS when (my) skin gets especially sensitive. However, combined with tanning it did dry my skin because it contains AHA. Other than that it is fantastic and a must-have!
I never knew there was another remover besides cold cream. My mother and grandmother always used it, so naturally I did too. I have since tried other removers, but always go back to this product. Absolutely perfect for heavy eye makeup as well as powder and foundation.
