Basically the best lip balm for your money. I called this my giant glue stick. Some might not like how it's so bulky but I personally love that because it also makes application easier. I've tried many lip balms product in the past. This includes Burt's Bees, EOS, Chapstick, Aveeno, Nivea, Ocean Potion, etc. and I gotta this one does the best job a moisturizing and it stays on the longest. I have stubborn, chronically dry lips so this is saying a lot. Though I admit this could have something to do with its price. Since it's so cheap, I'm not hesitated to put it on whenever my lips are not moisturized.
Like the most helpful review, I had a good experience with this product for about 3 weeks or so. My skin would feel nice and smooth when I woke up from applying it the night before. However, after these 3 weeks, my skin started to develop pimples on my face my neck. I rarely have face pimples and I have NEVER experienced pimples on my neck. At the same time, I found that my skin no longer feels supple and smooth from using it. Instead, it's dull with dry patches (I also rarely get dry patches). Since I only used the cream along with my cleanser and sunscreen, and I have had no problem using these 2, I reasoned it must be the cream. And true enough, after I stopped applying it, the blemishes cleared up and the dry patches got better. After some research on acne-causing ingredients, I attributed the reason to Cetearyl alcohol + Ceteareth 20 and Cetyl Alcohol included in this product, which are pretty high up the list of ingredients. Ingredients are always listed in proportional order with highest quantities at the top of the list. I think the alcohols caused my skin to break and became dry. :( It's a shame because this product was working well for me and I thought I had found my HG moisturizer.

I love this perfume. It has a warm, powdery plum scent. My nose just loves it when I put this stuff on. I have had my bottle for 4 years and it still smells amazing. My boyfriend tells me I smell very good every time I put it on and he has asked for its name twice, so that's a bonus too. :>
I bought a small sample bottle of this on ebay and so far, I'm loving it. I'm very lazy when it comes to skincare but this mask actually makes me excited at night to put it on. It has gel-like moisturizer consistency and makes my face feels super cooling when I put it on. It just feels so refreshing. I dab a bit at night on my face and neck. In the morning when I wake up, my face would feel super nice and soft. You don't need a lot to cover your face and so a bottle goes a long way. :)

I'm very picky when it comes to moisturizers. And this creme is the best I've used so far. I love putting it on and my skin feels super dewy afterward. A couple of hours later, it would feel super smooth to touch. The price is decent and it does its job.

I have combination skin and this moisturizer did nothing for it. With other moisturizer, my skin would feel dewy after ward. After putting this on, my skin does not feel any more moisturized than before. In fact, it left this weird dry greasy feeling that does not feel pleasant to touch. I have applied this many times, hoping it would somehow work this time and every time I'm left disappointed. It does not do its job as a moisturizer. It's a shame because it's cheap and seems to work for many others.
After reading the rave reviews for this lip balm, I went out and bought one. After applying it, my lips become irritated and extremely itchy. And I think it actually aggravated my dry, peeling lips. Only used it one time and not sure if I want to try it again. I'm not a fan of the flavor either.

Just let everyone know, you could buy ascorbic acid powder and vegetable glycerin on iHerb.com for pretty cheap, and by using the promo code ERA035, you get $5 off your first order. I just ordered mine so I cannot review the method yet, but I will try to post a review soon. :)
Curve Kicks a nice perfume with a citrusy sweet top notes. As it fades down, it becomes sweeter and more powdery. And i I find it lasts longer on my skin than any other perfume even though it's an EDT. I would recommend it to those who do not have an allergy on it. If this perfume does not give me allergy, tightening my throat and leaving my skin red where I sprayed it, I probably would spray it on everyday.

I ordered a free sample put the on the my wrists. This perfume smells like my fabric softener or detergent, which would be nice if it's on my clothes, not my skin! Would never spray this on again even if someone give it to me.
I guess this perfume mixes well with other people's chemistry but it does not do so on my skin. On me, it has a detergent and soapy smell that does not leave me feeling comfy, sexy, or clean and fresh. It's a shame because I'm really excited about purchasing this too seeing all the rave reviews about it. *Edited: Hmm, I don't know but the smell starts to grow on me on the third day. I still don't like the top notes that much but as the perfume faded down, it becomes more feminine and I like it better.
