This is an excellent hydrating toner. I apply after washing and it brightens and retains moisture/plumpness for a dewy, young look.
I received this as a gift, but wouldn't repurchase due to the price. I don't see the effects as great enough for me to buy as another step before my moisturizer.

I've purchased two huge bottles of this shampoo within the past 4 years. After getting a free sample in the mail, I got hooked. This cleans my scalp without harsh detergents and leaves the hair soft and moisturized, not stripped. I've even convinced all my friends and relatives to use this shampoo, giving away small bottles when they come over.

If there's one thing I …

Talc-free. Heavy coverage, but tends to be chalky and settles into fine lines and emphasizes dryness and wrinkles. I always use this with a BB cream or moisturizer, otherwise it's too drying. The finished look appears more matte and heavy. I wouldn't repurchase, since I prefer the more natural look that comes with BB creams.

I bought this at a pharmacy in Taiwan for under 10USD. Compared to other BB creams I've used, the coverage is medium to light and works excellent as a brightener. Dark in the tube, but lightens up on your face after awhile. Lasting power is not great, however, as I have to reapply by lunchtime, especially over the undereye circles.

I was looking for something similar to Garnier's Pure Clean Shampoo, which I would occasionally use for light shampooing on consecutive days. This was not it.
Naked Volume, despite similar claims as Garnier Pure Clean, such as being Paraben and Sulfate free, left my hair stripped and dry and straw-like with even LESS body.

Very harsh on my already fine, thin hair. I will …

Very good BB cream, but doesn't last all day. I put it on at 7:30AM and it had melted/oxidized by lunchtime. This is a very big difference in appearance from looking bright and polished in the morning to tired and faded by the end of the day. I prefer Missha Perfect Cover, which stays bright all day.

This is the most expensive lip balm that I've ever purchased, at $4.99 a tube. It has a smooth texture. I didn't experience the granular/gritty feeling that others had. It's more on the waxy side than oily, but is extremely moisturizing.

I will not be repurchasing due to price. Any petrolatum-free brand, such as Chap-Ice, has a similar result for a lower price.

Used this for a year without a problem. It is strong on the peppermint oil, even more so than Burt's Bees, that leaves you with that tingly-cool sensation after applying. After a year of using it, I developed an allergic reaction that left my lips swollen and cracked. I will not be repurchasing.
