I love this. I'm on my second bottle and i've never finished an entire bottle of fragrance before...
I liked the minty clean sensation without it being drying, but after a week of using this i started breaking out :-(
Edited: I'm halfway thru this, it gets really really drying... makes your lips peel.. eeeeeee.... My friend finds the same thing happening to her too so its not just me... How sad, i really love the colour and texture. ____________________________ Mine is in Crazy Lady. I love this gloss, wonderful colour, the consistency is just right, not sticky, and it has just the right amount of sparkly bits. And the best part is, it lasted through my roti prata and teh tarik! (Lunch, for non-sg readers). I'd buy this again if someone gave me the $$.
I love this fragrance. It is my favourite at the moment, really fruity and yummy. I must admit it was the name that attracted me in the first place. My sister thinks it a tad too sweet, but i love it. I fades quite quickly, though.
I got this in a swap. This left me with mixed feelings. Firstly the packaging isnt the best in the world; as with many of The Body Shop products, this comes in a tub which means you have to scoop this out with your fingers or a spoon or whatever, which actually isnt too big of a deal. The exfoliating properties of this scrub is amazing, it consists of tiny salt-like grains held together by presumably shea butter/oil. After rinsing, though, an oily film remains. I know this is supposed to be moisturing, but even for my dry skin it felt kinda weird and itchy. But after drying the oiliness goes away, and i still need to use a moisturizer. A kinda weird product, but if you ignore the parts that make you feel oily and gross, this is actually a really good exfoliator.
This is supossed to be for all skin types, and when i bought it my oily/combination skin was going through a dry spell. It worked well getting my skin back to normal, but since then it just doesnt feel as great. My skin just doesnt feel fresh and clean after washing. Highly recommemded if you have drier skin, though.

Several Weeks later: This is pretty good! My Skin seems to be less shiny and it doesnt dry out my skin at all. A great product for a great price! ************************************ I've been using this for around 3 days now and I really don;t know what to make of this. I've got oily/combination skin, this has got alcohol, but as one of the last ingredients so it doesnt dry out my skin which is a good thing. But it's also got glycerin as the third ingredient, so it leaves a weird moisturising filmy effect, which is really really odd for an oil regulating product. I can go without moisturiser after using this. Maybe it's supposed to work on the principal that if skin is adequately moisturised, then it won't produce even more oil? It hasnt had any negative effect on my skin yet so i'm gonna continue using it and then update this if necessary.

This takes time to show effects. I didnt see results after a week of using it, but somewhere nearing a month of using this, my skin does seem to look healthier. Not too sure if i'd buy this again, though... I'm sure there are cheaper, just as effective products out there!
