Smells Like Earwax! D:
I LOVE Burt's Bees. I am an avid, loyal buyer, and didn't hesitate to try out this product... but seriously, this doesn't smell like honey. It smells like earwax. I'm not kidding. It's gross. :( The lipbalm itself is amazing, as with all Burt's Bees products, but I had to throw this out because of the smell. I tried giving it away but none of my friends could stand it either!
Doesn't Live Up to the Hype.
Don't get me wrong, they're fine. They removed all of my makeup nicely... but that's kind of it. It stung to remove my under-eye concealer and mascara, let alone the few times I actually accidentally got it into my eyes -- and at the end of the day, I'm too tired to be careful and precise about something like where I put my makeup-removing wipes! I've definitely tried better.
Best I have ever used, but will not be repurchasing :(
This lotion is fantastic. It is extremely moisturizing yet not greasy in the SLIGHTEST -- I can actually shave my legs dry and then apply this without any problems at all! This is my favorite lotion, but I have decided to go paraben-free so will not be repurchasing it. My fingers are crossed that enough people will do the same and Palmer's will find another alternative ingredient so that I can go back to using it once again.
Good cleansing regimen but does nothing for acne!
This honestly didn't live up to the hype. I purchased this with high hopes after reading hundreds of positive reviews, with my fingers crossed that it would clear up my acne-prone skin. Don't get me wrong, the products all work great -- if you're simply looking for a thorough cleansing system, then I'd definitely go ahead and purchase this. I, however, was looking for a way to clear up my acne. I know that they have their specific acne-line, but I was told by numerous people that I didn't need it and that the regular regimen for skin types 3 and 4 would be more than enough. Unfortunately, they were wrong! I did enjoy the products, but I was sorely disappointed with the results I witnessed compared to what I was expecting. Maybe I should have picked up the one specifically for acne in the first place.
This is my favorite mascara that I have ever tried! It's honestly a triple threat -- it REALLY DOES curl, lengthen, and volumize better than anything else. It is VERY waterproof, which does make it difficult to remove -- but that doesn't bother me at all, since it means that it stays put as well!! This is the only mascara I've ever tried that does not leave me with raccoon eyes or black flakes all over my skin at the end of the day. Highly recommended!!!!
