I use the Melon. This is the best I've found since Chapstick's Botanical line was discontinued earilier in 2013, but I do wish it were longer lasting. Very softening and not at all waxy like Burt's Bees' signature line. It just doesn't last very long.

This is very hydrating and the effect is long lasting - I live in the Mojave Desert and have combination skin. It has that unique, delightful consistency light enough for under-makeup use while heavy enough to be used as a night cream. In both cases, I apply the Jasmine cream away from the T-zone after the Alpha-Hydrox cream has had a chance to sink in and do its thing. I find the scent to be …Read more

Treatments (Face) - DDF - DDF 7-Day Radiance Peel Kit

I have used this product twice and have been amazed both times with smoother skin (pores appear smaller, lines less noticeable and skin feels supple.) There is a generous amount of product in each nightly "dose" -- enough for hands, elbows, knees, etc, after the face and neck have been covered. Rinsing off these areas is the only drawback if you're not ready to hop in the shower …Read more

NEW FORMULA in '04; that weird stale or buttery smell isn't in the classic/original version. I have multiple editions (cream, powder, edt, lotion, showel gel, etc, etc) in both the classic (black & gold pkg) and the new peeuw in the pretty white/black boxes. At first I thought I had a spoiled batch; took me forever to track down that VC&A have deliberately destroyed my favorite …Read more

Bath Treatments - Burt's Bees - Apricot baby oil [DISCONTINUED]

5.0

Dec/07/2003

After bath or shower, I apply this or Burt's lemony Vit. E oil BEFORE drying off -- it seals in the moisture and my skin is silky without feeling oily/greasy and there's no ring in the tub. I use the refreshing lemon if I shower in the morning and the baby oil at night . When I used to do this with Neutrogena's Sesame Oil, I ended up needing to put on a lotion later anyhow. Both …Read more

Mascara - REVLON - Colorstay lash tint [DISCONTINUED]

This stuff is bad news. You have to put a pore-clogging mineral oil around your eyes to get this stuff off without pulling out a few precious lashes. I discovered that lash tinting done at a salon darkens EVERY lash top and bottom without clumping, no flakes, no racoon eyes, no stinging mascara remover, and for about $15 it fades gradually over 4 to 6 weeks. Can you SUE for lost eyelashes???

I use the refreshing lemon if I shower in the morning and the baby oil at night . I've also noticed a pleasant effect when using a floral perfume after the lemon oil -- adds a subtle citrus …Read more
