Love this lip balm. It doesn't smell nice or have a nice color to it. But it does what it is supposed to do: moisturize lips. Texture is very similar to vaseline, but I don't think Khiels has petroleum jelly in it (the main ingredient in vaseline, which I think is the ingredient that aggravates my lips. Makes them itchy and swollen.) Makes a great primer for lipstick. I put some …Read more

This is one of the best conditioner for dry ever! I have abused my hair beyond belief and now it is permanently dry. I've highlighted, thermally reconditioned and am always using curling irons or straightening irons to manipulate my hair. This has made my hair softer. The ends of my hair don't feel brittle anymore. I alternate between this and Sap moss, since I've heard that …Read more

Can I say WOW!! My skin has not felt this soft in a long time!! I hate the smell (old lady powdery) but it's bearable. The texture of the lotion feels so velvety in my hands and goes on very nicely. My skin is so soft and smooth the next day. I gave it four lippies for the moisturizing effects. My co-worker also commented on how smooth my skin looks (another plus for this lotion.) …Read more

This is one expensive body scrub at almost $60 for 15 oz. I love to scrub. I do it two to three times a week, so a 15 oz. jar doesn't last me that long. This scrub is not particularly amazing. But it does have tons of different types of oils that are very moisturizing for the skin. I wake up the next day with amazingly soft skin. I don't feel like brown sugar scrubs exfoliates or …Read more

I am using Obagi's skincare system but don't care much for the cleanser. So I'm always in search for something better. I still have a large bottle (16 oz.) of this, at least 2/3 full. Totally did not like the stuff. It gave me black heads and ruined my skin which I have spent years trying to perfect. Maybe it was a bad interaction between the Retin-A, triclosan and salicylic …Read more

What a beautiful color. I only bought this because it won Allures choice awards and I saw it on Reese Witherspoon when she was on the cover of In Style. In the tube it looks dark red with way too much sparkle, but on the lips it goes on sheer, more berry-like. Truly adds color to my face, but the right shade in any gloss does that. The gloss itself was average and not very long lasting (but …Read more

Love this scrub. I have acne-prone combo skin. I used to use this every morning. And it did wonders at keeping acne at bay. Definitely made my skin smoother and more refined, but that was probably because of the constant exfoliation I was doing. Unfortunately, I will not be using this anymore because my Accutane treatment has made using this scrub unneccessary.

This is such a bad lip stick. It smells alwful and made my lips dry and chapped. I could feel the color crack on my lips. It kind of felt like it was my lips that were cracking, not a pleasant sensation. The gloss only magnified the cracks on my lips. What a waste of my money. This product was also very expensive for a CG brand cosmetic.

I guess I just prefer powder for my brows. I found that this pencil makes them too fake and drawn in. The brown was too dark and the light brown too orange. They color went on kinda waxy like eyeliner. I'd rather spend a little more for a quality dept store one like Lancome or Shiseido's which have more of a powdery quality to them.
