I just bought a second jar so I can keep one at work! I'm 37 and my hands have recently started looking rather old-papery and dry. I moisturize frequently throughout the day but it onlyseems like a temporary fix. Then this product entered my life. It claims to repair the skins moisture barrier and I can say that it does work. I noticed a difference right away but after a week or so my hands …Read more

I love this as my everyday mascara because it doesn't flake or irritate my ultra sensitive eyes. I don't use it as a primer or for tightlining, but as my one and only mascara. It makes my lashes look fluttery and soft. It's like a step above a lash tint and looks very natural. Definitely not a dramatic look, but very pretty for laid back summertime makeup. I am on my second tube …Read more

I wanted this ever since it came out as part of the 2015 spring collection. I thought it would be a nice vibrant purple/magenta but two coats and it looks really dark and like nothing special. Not flattering to my cool/ pinkish skin. I bet this would look stunning on dark skinned gals. I will try it again when I am tan.

I love this oil, I will never be without it. I agree with the woman who said her hair "drinks this" as mine does too. It is full of nourishing oils that are absorbed into my hair, rather than coating hair with silicones. It leaves my hair looking so shiny and healthy. I have long, fine, straight, highlighted hair and I often use hot tools. This virtually eliminates the dry crunchy ends …Read more

I absolutely love this for my upper lash line. It is easy to work with once you get the hang of how to use it. I quickly run my angled liner brush under the faucet then blot the back of my hand. This gets some of the water out of my brush and leaves a little pool of water on my hand. I run my brush over the product and test it on my hand. If it's too dry I dip it in the pool of water to get …Read more

I read in a magazine that this oil strengthened the keratin in the nails to make them stronger. I bought this oil in the bottle rather than in the stick form. I have used 85% of my pricey bottle only to notice slight improvements. This oil is expensive and it is also messy. I use it in the morning and also before bed. I prefer a $5 jar of cream called Healthy Hoof. It is in the nail care …Read more

I love this eyeliner! It is easier to apply and stays put all day without fading or flaking. As an added bonus, it truly has made my eyelashes thicker and longer! I love this eyeliner so much as it is, that I had forgotten about the serum factor until I started noticing an improvement in my lashes. Icing on the cake! Great product, I have both the black and deep brown. I like deep brown better …Read more

I love this mascara. I wear brownish black in the non waterproof formula. It gives me the look of soft, long fanned out lashes. Never any flakes (until it starts getting old) and I have repurchased 3 times. Finally something that actually does what it claims!

I loved this at first, but after 2 weeks it started flaking really bad. My eyes were red and irritated from the tiny flakes so I threw it away. Maybe I just bought a bad tube? With all the other options I will try something else.

This is my HG lip product! I bought this online from Ulta and I can tell that I will go through it fairly quickly ($$$) so I just bought 2 backups on eBay. I am fair cool toned blonde blue eyes and this turns the most beautiful naturally rosy color with a healthy sheen. Gorgeous! I have dry lips normally and the Nebraska winter is wreaking havoc but this product is my lifesaver. It is very …Read more
