not for me... i noticed this has a very strong perfume/baby powder scent mixed with the smell of rubbing alcohol. the alcohol in it feels too harsh for me, so i prefer MB's other toners without alcohol in them.

got this in a free sample- i wasn't expecting much, just some moisture for my under eye area. after using every night for about a week my dark circles have faded. nothing dramatic, but enough for me to notice, which is more than i can say for any other eye cream i've used. i'll be purchasing this product when my sample runs out.

I bought this hoping it would help get rid of blackheads on my nose. The scrub does leave my face smooth and soft but after I use it, the skin around my nose because very itchy, irritated, and flaky. I also got 3 new pimples along my jawline- could be from this cleanser. I wanted to like it but it's just too harsh for my skin.

Dry Shampoo - Batiste - Dry Shampoo

My roots get greasy so fast- by the day after I've shampooed my hair. Batiste worked better on my hair then another dry shampoo that was almost $20. It actually soaks up the oil at the roots and adds a little volume which is great. You have to be careful though, with any dry shampoo, to not use too much product. The only thing though is the smell is very strong. It's not a bad smell- it …Read more

Skincare - Body - Mario Badescu - Special Cleansing Lotion O

I have a little acne in my chest area and quite a bit on my shoulders and upper back. I feel like this cleans up any dirt or sweat that wasn't washed off in the shower but sadly, it hasn't really cleared up anything. It made me shoulders scaly from how drying it is- use a lotion with it. And it smells bad. I wish it worked for me.

Lip Treatments - Blistex - Moisture Melt

Doesn't do much for moisture. It's really sticky and smells like toothpaste...not what I'm looking for in lip balm. I prefer Blistex's Silk &Shine over this.

Lotions/ Creams - Vaseline - Total Moisture Body Lotion - Clean Feeling with Pure Oat Extract + Stratys 3

This lotion is pretty nice. It's creamy at first and when I rub it in my skin it absorbs quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feeling. It also moisturises well. The big thing for me though is it kind of smells like sweaty feet or something... so I'll stick with Vaseline's cocoa butter lotion. But if you don't mind the scent, go for it.

I just grabbed this conditioner because I had a coupon for it and I didn't expect it to be really amazing or anything, but it actually added some volume and successfully hydrated it so I like this. The best part though is the smell, for some reason I love it and can't stop smelling my hair now. I might buy this again in the future but I like trying out different shampoos/conditioners …Read more
