I'm hooked. I've tried so many lip balms that either dried out my lips or was just too heavy that it was clogging the pores around my lips. This was just right--brought back the natural color of my lips. Overall, I'm very happy with this product. I already bought a back up. A definite repurchase.
I normally don't believe in any kind of cellulite product. I tried this based on the glowing reviews and I'm amazed at the results. I'm echoing all positive remarks made to this product. I do have issues on the back of my thighs particularly when sitting or crossing my legs. But that has changed since I used this. I did have the travel size and halfway through it, I rushed out to get the full size. I got this for $22.95 plus tax at Whole Foods. I didn't want to order it cheaper on line bec.I couldn't wait. I apply this oil after shower from waist to my knees. I only apply once. The oil smells nice,sinks in,no greasy after feel, just soft silky smooth skin. I wish I could use this all over my body if it was cheaper. Overall,love this product and will repurchase again and again.
I was using DDF's sulfur mask prior to this. QHMJ masque exceeded my expectations. It works just like DDF's on my super oily skin. I use this everyday and as a spot treatment. My skin is super oily/acne-prone/sensitive skin. This does not eliminate stubborn blackheads on my skin but helps alot if used prior to extraction. Overall, this becomes a new staple for me. Packaging is ok. Price is cheap. Will repurchase.
I have this in Beach. It's a close match to my medium olive skintone. My skin has yellow undertones but right when the sun hits my face, my face turns pink and my neck yellow---go figure! I tried Eden and it's a little light. I might get that on winter though. Here's what I think about this loose powder: 1) It's finely milled and silky; Disappears in the skin; Doesn't dry out my face 2) It's matte finish but I do get oily in couple of hours; I have to blot 2) Good value for the amount of product 3) The packaging is so-so. It's a little messy and not travel friendly. For ref. I have very oily acne-prone/sensitive skin. I just tried this on and I'm hoping that it won't break me out. I also have these loose powders for comparison: Chanel (it holds the oilies longer); Dior Invisible(discontinued but I stocked up--the best so far;La Prairie (pink based and no oil control); Origins (finely milled but can make me look gray sometimes). If all goes well with my skin, this is a definite repurchase.

What a great mask at an affordable price. It works great for my very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin. I use this once a week and it's a great maintenance. I do notice that my pores are smaller. This doesn't dry out my skin but leaves it clean,clear,& smooth. Good enough for me. The only downside is all that mixing but I don't mind since it works for a cheap price. A definite repurchase for me.
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Baby Bees Buttermilk Lotion

This lotion is a little runny for me but does the job. It sinks right in--no greasiness. I found the scent to be too sweet that lingers for hours--it clashes with my perfume. Overall, I really like it. My skin gets really dry and itchy in winter months and this is the only lotion that calmed my skin. Because it works that great for me, I'll just have to get use to the scent. A definite repurchase for me.
This is one of my favorites. Yummy scent with a cooling effect. I would love this for summer. I'm enjoying this now for the holidays. I have not tried this as a shampoo but excellent as body wash. I will repurchase.
My new favorite. Perfect for the holidays. Love the candy cane flavor which sticks for a long while so as the cooling effect. I would love this for summer. Good consistency which is not goopey. Has great staying power. I will repurchase again.
Although this is for every skin type,it's just way too rich for my very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin. I ended up using this for my neck and hands. I'm sure this is heaven sent for dry skin types.
This feels like rubbing sand on my face. Though it removed every impurity on my skin, I have to generously moisturize afterwards. The texture is similar to my body scrub. I don't think I will repurchase.
This is a gentle scrub for my face. Leaves my skin squeaky clean but not dry. I can use this everyday. I only use a dime size for my face so the tube will last me a while. I have very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin for reference. Overall, great scrub and I might buy this again.
Sunscreen -Dermalogica - Oil-free Matte Block Spf 20

I'm currently using this for the winter time. Eventhough it's oil-free and supposedly matte finish, my face is shiny in couple of hours. I don't think I will be using this for summer. It goes on light and sinks right in. It has a light scent which goes away after few minutes. I compare this to DDF's photo finish which is again suppose to have matte finish. I guess it's just not matte on my very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin. I will not repurchase.
My skin loves this scrub. The grain is very fine but works well for me. I do have very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin and this is gentle for my skin----almost too gentle. I use this everyday and once in a while switch to a different scrub. I think the price is reasonable because I only need a dime size for my face and the tube lasts for months. I will repurchase this product.
This is a nice daytime moisturizer with spf 15. It has a sheer pink finish not matte but it has the brightening effect. It actually gives my skin a boost like radiant looking when it's not. The scent to me is citrusy which I like. I do have very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin. This makes me shiny in a few hours and it's not even warm weather. I'm currently using this for winter and will switch to something else when it gets warmer. Another plus, goes on light and absorbs right away. It doesn't break me out either. The downside is, it's pricey. I do have other products that have the same illuminating effect for a lesser price. Overall, it's good but not sure if I'll repurchase.
Great clay mask. My face feels squeaky clean without feeling dry. I can use this everyday. I have very oily,acne-prone,sensitive skin and this works great for me. However, the price in on the high 2.5 oz for $32.50. I'm sticking to my DDF sulfur mask. Overall great product but will not repurchase.
