Nov/22/2013

i like this stuff quite a bit. sometimes i make my own cold cream with the same basic ingredients (water, mineral oil (or other oil), beeswax, and borax (for emulsyfing)) and although my cold cream works well at cleansing it just isn't as moisturizing as this stuff is.

really, i like that this cold cream can be used as a moisturizer. ponds can be used as a moisturizer but the …

Cleansers - Pond's - Deep Cleanser Cold Cream

Nov/21/2013

i really like this.
i didn't want to like it since it has quite a few new added chemical ingredients (including parabens) in the current version - the older version (borax version) was much simplier and i preferred it.

but - i have found nothing that works as well for my skin. i made home-made cold cream and while it worked great for cleansing it seemed to leave my skin …

I know most of the reviewers on here prefer the German version of this creme - but I don't.

I like the one that I can buy at Walmart in the huge 13.5 cobalt glass jar. Yes, it has petroleum jelly in it - but I think it works much better than the one without.

for some reason I was sensitive to the 'fragrance' in the German one and this one doesn't …

i usually buy the generic version of this from my grocery store (HEB for those lucky enough to be in Texas).

i was out and at another store and bought this instead thinking it would be the same thing.

well for me it was MUCH more drying and it made my scalp itch!

i took it back and will never stray again from my generic :(

too bad - i love the …

i love this conditioner for co washing. it rinses out easily and really leaves my hair clean and shiny. i've never tried it for actual conditioning since i prefer co washing.

love the smell, the tingly feeling and the thickness and pretty much everything about it! i even love the sage green bottle and the price!!!

yay Suave!

i really like this stuff.
at first i was using it wrong (for me anyway). i was rubbing it on and then removing it with a wet washcloth and then putting more on.

my pores started getting clogged and my skin didn't like it and it was ruining my washcloths.

i started using it per the directions on the jar (lol) and wow!

so now i use a little bit for my …

i love this stuff. but i have a love hate relationship with it.

for a long time i used regular vaseline petroleum jelly and was very happy with it. then i found this stuff.

at first i couldn't deal with the fragrance but all of a sudden it grew on me and i hardly notice it any more.

it is much more moisturizing and sinks in quicker and deeper than regular …

Aug/17/2012

I'm going to review something that will sound weird at first... but it works extremely well on my aging skin!

I've tried every oil I could get my hands on and Lard and Vaseline Petroleum Jelly are the only things that have helped and Lard helps better than anything.

I have the cheap Armour Lard that you can buy at the grocery store. It is white and totally …

I am so disappointed that this did not work well for me.

Yes, it does seem to moisturize a bit and it feels nice and is silky and I like that it is un-scented and I can add EO's; but it really just sits on top of my skin.

It seemed to leave my skin more dehydrated looking after it 'absorbs' and I found it slightly irritating to my skin …

i love this soap for brushing my teeth! i also use it for hair washing (with a vinegar rinse) and for my pets. it is one of my all time favorites and i like that i can buy it instead of having to make it since lye has gotten harder to find.
