Love this. I've already bought 5 of them, so it's available everywhere. It's super moisturizing, though it does feel like a goopy layer on my lips. Do not care for the pan design, as you have to dig in to get product out. But it's working wonders, so I will keep using it.

This is a great cheap brush and was perfect when it was the only stippling brush I owned. Since I purchased others, I hardly ever reach for this. The brush is not as dense and just does not compare to the MAC brush. OK for starer brush only
Moisturizers -Sundari - Neem and Tamanu Moisturizer for Dry Skin
pruma 8/13/2009 11:14:00 AM
I am going through a dry skin bout and have tried everything that promises to be super moisturizing. This moisturizer is very light is probably best for someone with normal skin in summer. It does not feel heavy (which is a plus), but it doesn't last very long and leaves me feeling parched.
since i got on accutane, my skin is super dry ... and my lips stay chapped, no matter what I do. This lip balm had great reviews and I got it from vitacost. It is very moisturizing and does not feel goopy or gooey at all. I do need to reapply every few hours (but I seem to need to do that with every lip balm anyway). Will probably continue to buy it. Like it overall *EDIT: I seem to need to reapply every 15 minutes with this. Sticking to Avon's moisture therapy
It does leave your skin super oily and doesn't seem to blend in well and tends to sit on top of it. I am on accutane now and my skin is beyond regular dry...and i am trying everything to calm it down. This does seem to moisturize it well, but my skin still dries up after 5-6 hours, so i am not wowed. The tube it comes in seems nice, but is hard to squeeze the product out from it. Would work well as a good night moisturizer i suppose. Not wowed at all
Like others noted, this doesn't feel like you've applied oil at all. It absorbs fairly quickly and skin does feel hydrated around the eye after using it. But besides that, it seems to do little else. Not worth it for the price.
Skincare - Body -Lierac - Phytrel ampoules - bust firmer
pruma 2/21/2009 2:33:00 PM
I have been looking for some firming product, and have not found it yet (tired clarins, h2o and some psuedo-herbal products). Lierac reviews, though few, seemed to offer what I needed. Having since tried it for close to a month, I can say I see no difference. I would have given it more time, but the little spritzer that came with the ampoules stopped working. It used to sort of leak a little on the side before and now just won't do anything when pressed. For the price I paid, the packaging looks good, but the key usage instrument is crappy. And no real results to boot. Will not buy again.
I love Clarins skincare products and their delightful smells. Their makeup line, however, hasn't been very interesting to me. The blush I got appeared dried up (only had it for a month) and seems to have no color payoff at all. Very sad product.
I saw the many reviews on Youtube and couldn't wait to get it. When I did get it (2 months ago), I just loved the palette. The colors were pretty and since I use a lot of browns for most part, it seemed like it was made for me. Swatches taken right then showed highly pigmented colors and I was in love. After having "tried" to use it repeatedly, I've just given up. Most colors are too chalky (NC 44 here) to make the whole palette be worth it. I do like some of the darker colors, but that's about it. It's cheap and will last awhile. So you can still get it if you want to play around n such. But wouldn't recommend it for anyone who is darker complexion than me.

Love this lip balm. I keep buying different brands, but keep returning to this. It glides on smooth and feels amazing on my lips. Doesn't stay on long and I feel the need to re-apply some...but it does seem to aid my lips well. Usually on sale at avon for 70 cents. Can't beat the price either

What a pointless slave. Does nothing. Smells of strawberry and that's about it. Will not buy again.

I buy this product pretty frequently and use it whenever and wherever my skin feels dry-ish at times. But for a lip balm, it's not the best. It works for an hour, maybe two and you need to keep re-applying. Love the tin can though.
