I just tried it and used a bit too much (two blobs) on my fine hair.  Love the way it smells though and I can tell that if I use a bit less, it'll be perfect and give a ton of texture.  Glad you had success with it! :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />
Yeah, I think the recommendation of two dollops is too much. I did it again yesterday on towel dried hair and liked the results even more! Definitely had that beachy vibe to it without crunchiness that moose can leave. Hopefully it'll work for you next time you try!!!

Lawd have mercy, the applicator on the Melted!!!  Who on Earth thought that was a good idea?

Grant you, I have texture issues, but it's so gross feeling, like applying in with a chalkboard eraser or something. Is this a common type, and if so can someone list the other brands that have them so I don't waste my money?

And the color, omg, it's like My Lips But Worse. My husband took one look at me and asked me where my upper lip went! It totally makes my upper lip disappear.

I have very thin lips anyway, and pale pinky toned skin, and I swear to you, I look like a... I don't even know what I look like, actually. It's hysterical. 
Haha, pics or it didn't happen! (just kidding) I agree, I am having trouble making this color/formula work for me. I'm super pale and it kind of washes me out while migrating and pooling in areas. That's OK, it just means that if Too Faced comes out with a holiday set of mini Melteds I won't be the hapless victim that I am when faced with other sets of mini lip products.  :p /emoticons/tongue@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

I was just perusing the site to see if I wanted to spend my $10 credit on anything and came across their value sets. They have some pretty good deals, especially with the $10 off! The Vanilla Body Care and Ibiza Club Night sets were calling to me. I ended up getting a Library of Flowers shower gel and NEST Pumpkin Chai candle.

I really want that Library of Flowers bubble bath from the Vanilla Body Care set. It would look SO pretty sitting on my guest bathroom counter!
Thanks for pointing these out, I'm going to get the Vanilla one.

I use Cure Aqua Gel.  I have rosacea, so my skin is VERY sensitive and I avoid any of the exfoliants with grit like the plague.  Cure is from Japan, and you can get it on Amazon.  It runs around $40/bottle, but my bottle lasted me about 6 months (although I often forget to use it twice a week).  The texture is like an aloe gel (and I think it contains some), and you rub it in a circular motion on your face.  It makes dead skin cells sort of pill up into little balls, which you just rinse away.  I really like it, and it's the only exfoliant I've found that I can use without aggravating my skin.

ETA ~ actually just looked and it's $33 (with Prime, if you have that for shipping) on Amazon right now.
OMG Thank you @@mellee SOOO MUCH for recommending Cure  :hugs3:  I bought some off Amazon and just tried it tonight and it works like a miracle!!!! I have rosacea too so it's hard to find ANYTHING to exfoliate that doesn't make me turn into a tomato. It;s soft and gentle and the lil white balls are oddly gratifying  :rotfl:

I'm so happy it works for you, too!  Yeah, I was very surprised and glad to finally find something that would exfoliate without inflaming my skin.  And it is really fun - in a gross kind of way ;) /emoticons/wink@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" /> - to be able to actually see that it's working!

So I just saw that next month's first spoiler is an $85 full sized eye cream. Not bad! It was on MSA's twitter feed.

I just bought some clearance items and was able to stack the $10 off promo with a Caudalie GWP and the free 15 or 20 piece gift set (the coupon sites have it as 15, but it said 20 in my cart) with $75 purchase code BEAUTYBAR0814! Not bad at all!

OK read the description and started laughing... So I'll put it in a spoiler.  Can someone tell me if this is an anti-aging cream? It doesn't *look* like it has any of the classic anti-aging stuff that makes my skin freak out, I just don't want to use an $85 skin cream once and then have to throw it away!

Because the skin around the eyes is 50% thinner than the skin on the rest of the face, it is important to use a product specifically formulated for the eye area. Restorsea Revitalizing Eye Cream is formulated for this delicate skin and clinically proven to reduce puffiness, combat dark circles, and minimize the appearance of crow's feet.

I guess it depends on your definition of anti-aging? Judging by what you posted it looks more preventative than curative, but it does claim to diminish the look of fine lines. If you have sensitivities, I'd be most concerned about the "patent-pending" Vibransea technology (I hate those stupid gimmicky names, btw). If it's trade secret they don't have to disclose the ingredients on the packaging, although they do have to disclose them to receive the patent, so I guess you could always find out that way.

Also, LMAO at "baby salmon hatching". Well, whatever, if it works, it works!

I think pretty much every eye cream I've ever seen claims to diminish the look of fine lines, even if only by the fact that moisturized skin looks less line-y.

What the heck, I'll try it.  Live dangerously.  After all, I only paid $3 instead of $85 ($15 box / 5 items.  I swear I can math.) so may as well give it a whirl.
