    I received this kit as a gift and I am not very happy with the product. The transferring papers work, but the timing of it is wrong, for if you leave the paper on too long, it will begin to bleed. Not to mention, it fades a lot with water and comes almost completely off with sweat. It also rubs off quite easily even after it should have been dried.

    This book was given to me as a gift for my kids and they really enjoyed it. We then went out and bought them for their friends. Really great way to introduce culture and craft. Hope to see more.

    The transfers are nice, easy to trace and look pretty. However,  I wish I would have gotten the one with real henna instead of the pen. The pen is easy to use but it doesn't last and it's just not the same. Sad I wasted my money on this.

    This product is easy to use and is a wonderful introduction to Henna. The book is very informative and contains very beautiful designs to gain inspiration.The only cons for this set are the difficulty in using the transfers and the fact that the pen bleeds occasionally into the creases of your skin before drying completely.

    Ripoff

    This product looks good but it didn't work at all. I did real henna is social studies class and it was so much better. This product doesn't transfer with the "tattoo" that transfers the design. I tried this method repeatedly and it never worked. I eventually tried to just look online at pictures and use the "henna pen" but the pen didn't even look like real henna. It didn't fell like it, or crack and peel then darken, like real henna. I wish I would have spent my money on real henna, not this stuff.
