I'm a recent convert to this and I absolutely love it. I get what I can only describe as reptilian patches on my knees and the bony bits of my ankles and this seems to be the only cream (and I've tried a few) that tames them into submission and without that sticky feeling. I find I can slather this on after a shower and get dressed straight away. Don't know why it took me so long to try it. I'd say the smell is more 'milky bar' on me than cocoa, but I love it. The only trouble is that I spend all day sniffing my arm, it really lingers. Absolutely the best body moisturiser I've tried, highly recommended.
I, almost never, purchase the same mascara twice. Very rarely do I even make it to the bottom of a mascara tube, before I have to chuck it in crying frustration. I make an exception for this mascara, I've even made it to a second tube. Yes, the packaging is naff, but I'm still giving it 5 stars, simply because this is pretty much the best 'everyday' mascara I've ever used. It goes on completely clump free and really gives my, very fair, lashes good definition, without that horrible gunky feeling that seems to be all too common in some mascaras. I've tried it without using my eyelash curlers a couple of times and it actually does provide some curl, in addition to light volume and length too. I get quite greasy in the eye area during the summer and this product has never wandered halfway down my face once in the 6 months I've used it and I find it easy to remove using almond oil without having to pull or drag the skin. If you're looking for a 'false lash' effect then this is probably not the mascara for you but, if you want a good all round every day mascara that doesn't leave you with 'Panda eyes' halfway through the day. Then this is most definitely the one for you.
