I bought this with high hopes but the overpowering synthetic scent is disgusting. WHY do manufacturers think they can decide what I want to smell like?? Women wear so many products, and if each one is heavily scented, what a disaster. To say nothing of how cheap chemicals actually disrupt our hormones.

The shampoo seemed to make my hair fuller, but the smell precludes further use.

Had to give this a 5, to counteract all the negative reviews-- I've used Bumble in the past, and that was truly a mess, blackens your hands, leaves grey residue, and an unholy price to boot. This is all it's cracked up to be: left my hair bouncy, shiny, little to no residue, and price is wonderful. Perhaps people were using way too much and spraying too closely?
I wash my hair …

I've used this curler for some time, and decided to replace the pads. HOW ridiculous and NASTY that they don't make them--to say nothing of unecological!!!!
I bought a Shisedo, which IS refillable, and it works great, is lighter, and easier to use.
Boycott Shu until they make refills--it's nonsense.

This stuff is great--I was very sceptical, esp. with the price, but the reviews were intriguing. It WORKS!!! Any mascara stays on, lashes are thicker, longer, no smudging, terrific. Just wish it weren't so expensive.

Lost ALL my makeup going to Paris (sob) and was not near any Sephora, so had to go to the local drugstore. This product is bad, a waste of money. Compared to Bare Escentuals, this has no coverage, and the brush was rough. Stick to the real stuff.

I generally like Aveda products for their purity; the SA was so helpful and recommended this for volume. It smells terrible, like subway urine. I really wanted to try it, but simply could NOT get past the smell.
Using Shampure now, and it's great--will stick to my old standby Aquage Healing Conditioner: the smell is not terrific, much more commercial, but it works very well.

I am a devotee of Max Factor Lash Perfection, and disconsolate that it's not sold in the US anymore. Based on the reviews, I tried this--it's terrible. The brush is way too big, smudges everywhere, and raccoon eyes appear within hours. It actually made my eyelashes STRAIGHT right after I had curled them, something MF never did. I loved the dark blue color, and it never …Read more

This is HANDS DOWN, the BEST lip product out there!!!! Tracked it down at BABIES R US ( the ONLY benefit of suburbia is access to huge landscape-- blighting megastores) here in Manhattan (drugstores here carry only the basics, for some reason). After TWO nights of this, my lips are buttery soft, hydrated, like a baby's. Have always thought those obsessives who slather on mineral based …Read more

Based on the comments here, I bought the eye treatment and the Firm Advantage cream. The sample for the eye cream seemed very dry and hard to dissolve, but I thought perhaps it was an old sample. Well after about 3 mo. of using this, the eye cream actually cracked in half in the jar, and now is impossible to use, it's so dried out. When I called the saleswoman at Bergdorf's she told …Read more
