I'm really liking this one right now. It's a nice spicy, vanilla, chocolatey, dry fragrance without any nasty patchouli to wreck it.<BR/> <BR/>
Other than the design of the bottle, I don't get this aquatic/marine thing so many people are talking about here. Being from So Cal, I've got plenty of experience in the "breathing ocean air" department and …

Gee -- I'm not sure how to rate this. I bought it, and have been using it for about two months. I mix about 2/3 or so of a scoop with my "WHINE" serum in the mornings (because the package recommends it be used in the AM rather than PM); however I'm not sure if it's really <i>doing</I> anything.

It stings a little when I apply it, but then it goes …

I can't believe I fell for it. That's $20 I'll never see again. This product is horrible: Chalky, ugly pink. It's very harsh looking; I bet it'd even glow under a black light. I think I'll donate mine to the local funeral parlor.

Save your dough!

I really like this version of BE. The original version made me look like the Tin Man and it also made me ITCH like crazy. It wasn't until reading here that I learned about the bismuth.

I used to use the "fairly light" in the original formula but I like "light" in the matte better. I'm not noticing it turning orange on me; however I don't look in the …

All I can say is "<b>WOW</b>! I was turned on to this by a review for the Ped Egg. This "Fot Fil" smokes the Ped Egg and flicks its butt out the window. My feet are as soft as a baby's arse thanks to this implement coupled with regular use of the miracle that is Flexitol Heel Balm (FHB). Once upon a time I had dry cracked heels that would sometimes become so …Read more

Am I the only detractor? This device is *clearly* designed for Asian eyelids. The arc of the curler is subtle and doesn't curve around my eye enough to get at the lashes in the outside corners all the way down to the base of the lash, so those very important hairs just end up kind of "half crimped".

Oh, and that's some racket they've come up with in not …

This is my favorite jasmine perfume and is a great casual, daytime scent for warmer weather. I remember when it came out in '84. My mom saw it in a magazine and <i>had</i> to have it.<br>
<br>
At the advice of my Sicilian neighbor, we were pronouncing the fragrance as "fur-rare"; however the snooty ladies at the perfume counter just stared at us …

This was way too glittery for me to wear as an eyeshadow. It looked great in the jar, but I had to apply a lot for it to actually produce any color on my eyelid and once it did -- it just looked like glitter and dirt. The glitter flakes are very large, very obvious and they wind up all over your face.

After keeping this for years in my makeup drawer, I finally ended up just using it …

Worms and rainwater. That’s the scent.


This stuff had better work miracles because I’ve had it on my face for over an hour and it smells just foul as it did when first applied. The fumes are making my eyes burn, making it unsuitable for daytime use. It's making my face burn a little as well, but I don't detect any redness.


Time will tell how well this …

This is nothing like it used to be "back in the days" before they started adding sunscreen to everything from cuticle remover to toothpaste.


Lip Lovers used to be a wonderful product with a fabulous scent, flavor, and a medium-stiff balm-like consistency. Now it both smells and tastes of sunscreen and is the consistency of warm Vaseline. It only moisturizes about as …
