I was a fan of the original Great Lash, but was willing to branch out to explore a product that provided more volume. I hated the brush on Lots of Lashes. I never did figure out how to use it to evenly apply mascara to my upper lashes without clumping ot blinding myself. The brush has a weirdly steep angle.
Gels/Soaps -Burt's Bees - Naturally Nourishing Milk & Shea Butter Body Wash

I was looking for an SLS free moisturizing wash and this one has been great for me. The fragrance reminds me a bit of coconut, which I like, and it lathers well enough for me. My skin is always really soft afterwards. It lathers pretty well in a jacuzzi tub. The best part is that it doesn't break out m y super sensitive skin.
I purchased a sample of this about a month ago, and have tried it several times. Right out of the bottle, I get a hint of iris and violets, and is very lovely until it meets my skin. After about 20 mintues, this sincerely disagrees with my body chemistry. I long for the classy, powdery notes mentioned by other reviewers to develop. Instead, starting at 30 minutes this turns into a very animalic, fetid sort of odor on me. It is truly uncanny! I have a similar reaction to ADP's Colonia Assoluta, to a lesser degree, so I'm guessing there's a common ingredient that is not for me. The classic Acqua di Parma Colonia works much better for me.

I bought this product to use mainly around my eye area, which is where I am wrinkling. I started with a head to head challenge- I tried MyChelle Supreme Polypeptide on my right eye, and Arbonne Re9 eye cream on the left eye. After 10 days, I asked a couple of friends if they could tell a difference in my eyes, and they both said, "Yes, the right one is definitely smoother and less puffy. What are you using????!" Now it's MyChelle Supreme Polypeptide on BOTH eyes morning and night. I am giving it 4 lippies because while I am grateful for it stopping the hands of time, I'm hopeful I'll find something to reverse it. . . until them I am a big fan!
