I usually stick with the red/pink/coral range for my fingers and will go outlandish for my toes. At my advanced age I'll do every thing except black and the more glitter the better for my toes. For the first time I swapped for a amazing blue "Moonchild" and put it on my fingers! It's the closest to metalic/chrome I've found without a lot of steps. I was tickled with …Read more

Before this was available in Target, I brought back from Europe as many cans as I could fit in my luggage. Then, I paid huge amounts to buy it on Ebay. So I was thrilled when it came to the States. The fine mist is what makes it my HG hair spray, and I hate hair spray. It brushes out and doesn't leave a lot of build up, also it keeps my curls even with longer hair. The stuff is great …Read more

AS WITH cjxtypes's review, I totally agree. Why did they call it #5 if all you're left with is plain old vanilla? I can get that in my kitchen cabinet.

Found this on a magazine strip and ordered a mini of it to try. It's great: an absolute dupe of Hermes Rose Ikebana! Since i already have the Hermes, won't be using it. It does last as well as Ikebana tho and some may find the price to be better.

Found on Ebay because I love the scent and cannot get it from BBW. Sadly, it's the best gentle volume shampoo I've found and I was Pureology all the way! I really like the conditioner as well. I've tried multitudes for volume but this one really works well--hotel sizes are all that's available. I have to wonder if BBW uses a better formula for hotels than they did in the …Read more

I read it was good, liked the gold tube (packaging sucker) but the plastic brush is worthless.
I use the med for lashes and they are long but not thick and I don't find this helps for any fullness. Just darkens what I have. Not worth the money, even if it's cheap. Or the single rating, tried to leave a zero.

Great swapper gave me a chance to try the gradual tanner, and I love the results, if not some of the other things. I have a hard time getting a regular "tan in a can" to a darker stage without streaking, and the gradual lotions are the answer! Great gradual color over 3 days of use and it doesn't even mess up on joints and feet.
Nivea's coffee odor is what put me off …

FINALLY! a tanner for those of us who hate to take the time to make sure the cream is VERY even to prevent streaks and who cannot put on a second coat without streaking.

I had avoided the "daily" gradual tan products figuring they'd not work well---swapped for Nevia's(sp) and liked the results, but not the coffee smell. Tried jergens' NO smell, love that. …

RIS and am grateful that I didn't pay for it just to get the bottle. Bottle is amazing but juice leaves a great deal to be desired. Eh, just like all the sweet, non-inspiring scents so many of the celebrity names put out. At least it wasn't fruity and I didn't get all that vanilla on dry down..

Well, I remember loving the package on Opium, but not the juice. I sprayed this sample on and thought--where do I know that from? It's not That generic, but, but..... It's taken me several hours and a couple of sprays, but I finally got it! Flowerbomb! That's what it smells like. Not bad, just not better. Or worse. Just the same, to me.
