This product is just awful. Firstly,it contains a lot of alcohol which is irritating and very drying for your skin. I used this for a month and it did nothing for my acne at all. I think it actually made my acne worse. This made my skin so dry that it started to peel (gross!). This stinks of alochol so badly that after i put it on i could still smell it for the next hour. I might as well just save myself the money and just put rubbing alcohol on my face. Not only that,but i hate that menthol-y feeling.AWFUL stuff!!!
The brush is a joke. The coverage was medium but i found that it would look cakey if i wanted to build it to get more coverage. My local drugstore carried only 3 shades -natural light,natural medium,and natural dark. I picked natural light but it looked kind of orange on me.This also makes a big mess and the powder goes everywhere. The only good thing about this is the price. In this case,i got what i paid for! i dont think this is even worth $4..i should have just spend the extra money and got something that actually works. However, if this matches your skin tone and you dont want a lot of coverage..you might like this.
I bought the lotion versian of this and i reaally like it. It has no annoying frangrance,doesn't cause breakouts, has sun protection and does not leave my skin greasy but still moisturizes pretty well for my combo,acne prone skin. My skin has recently gotten a lot dryer because of the acne products i am using,but this still manages to get rid of the dryness fairly well. However,i don't think this would be moisturizing enough for people with very dry skin. I love the way this absorbs quickly into your skin and a little goes a long way.This is great for everyday sun protection for winter,spring and fall but during the summer time i need something with stronger sun protection so ill be switching sunscreens during the summer time. Overall I still luv this and this is my HG daytime moisturizer for fall,winter, and spring! EDIT: They discontinued this and made a new formula. WHY!!!???
This is awful. It looked so chalky and cakey when i used it to cover up my acne marks. I got the lightest shade and it was still to dark. It looked very orange. This also was very hard to blend. EDIT: Okay now its summer time and i got darker and my skin got less dry and this concealer actually is not bad! The shade (light ivory i think) is now just a little too light on me but if i put mineral foundation over it will look fine.It covers well (though its hard to use on your under eye circles so i use a seperate liquid concealer) It would be good for people with normal-oily skin . This concealer would really accentuate any dry skin.

This stuff is awful. If you have any degree of dry skin- STAY AWAY!! This concealer made my skin look all flakey and chalky . It was also very hard to blend. The tea tree oil scent was the only thing i liked about this product. I also think it broke me out because when i used it to cover up some blemishes,the next day i got a new pimple . This was a waste of $9!
This is reeally moisturizing and smells greatt! it gives me a barely- there redish tint to my lips ..its superr cheap and it makes my lips look great and have abit of shine!:) Too bad it does not have sun protecion though because if it did,it would be perfect. This moisturizes my lips better than many other lip balms.Also the company does not test on animals(:
I bought the one in the Purple bottle.This is really gentle but still cleanns ur face well.. i got it for 9 dollars CDN and the bottle was pretty big.i use this along with clean&clear BP spot treatment.i'd recomend this for any skin type its great!i tryed atleast 8 different cleansers that either dryed my skin badly or were just too harsh but this is defo what im going to use from now on..
This did not moisturize my lips at all,and i didn't really like the color . Its this pearly sort of pink but it looks kind of frosty on my lips.
This really did nothing for my skin and the ingredients(menthol,camphor,etc) are irritating.I could still smell this on my skin after i wash it off which is annoying. I cant believe they still make this! There are A LOT of better cleansers out there. This is CRAP!

This stuff did Nothing for the blackheads on my nose at all!! all it did was make my nose look soft and smooth but it deffinately did not get rid of my blackheads:(....but it really makes ur nose look smooth and soo soft!!!but it still does not do what it claims by getting rid of blackheads..
This stuff is one of the few moisterizers with spf that did not cause breakouts for me or make my skin look oily..HOWEVER....the fragrance is HORRIBLE!! it is soo strong and u could smell it from 4 metres away!! i had it on and everyone noticed the smell...how emberassing!!and it bothers my nose too. Also, the texture is sort of weird and it feels like your rubbing little peices of sand on your face.
