I'm a person who always double washes..Although, this doesn't remove all traces of makeup, I have my main neutrogena foaming face wash for that. In terms of cleansing purposes, not the greatest but it is a decent gentle morning cleanser. It does have a slight sting upon application for some odd reason but hasn't contributed to breakouts. It's a good MILD cleanser that does not leave your face feeling tight and/or dry but once again I believe it doesn't meet its goal as a cleanser.
I'm thoroughly impressed with this product. I'm currently under a Rx retinol regime and the occasional flakes in certain times of the month are literally gone. It absorbs quickly and leaves a dewy finish. Does not, does NOT cause breakouts whatsoever. Pump packaging for sanitary purposes, non-irritating, non scented w/o an offensive smell (at least for me), CHEAP! I would buy this over and over and over again!
Best tweezers I've ever got my hands on!
I bought this for my boyfriend who suffers from shaving irritation. It definitely helps to reduce the inflammation associated with shaving. Considering however it's only aspirin water, not too sure whether if the price is worth it but still a good product.

This burned my face upon application. Maybe it's due to the fact that I'm currently under a retinol regimen but still, left my face feeling like it was literally on fire. I had high hopes for it had beneficial light moisture, antioxidant, and anti irritant properties. Too bad. I'll give it to my boyfriend...he seems to like it though!

I bought this because it was packaged with the facial cleanser that I use and at the time I thought it to be a pretty good deal. I agree with all other reviewers above me. Has sun protection and is fragrance free but is definitely not enough for me to stick with it. Greasy which is a no-no for my particular oily skin. Just blah of a moisturizer.

I like that this product holds a decent amount of protection, is non-greasy, contains antioxidants and doesn't have an offensive smell. It doesn't act well as a primer for my MMU application which would have been a bonus. I just find that applying MMU takes alot more effort in creating that flawless finish. It definitely helps in keeping your face matte for a longer duration however, drys out your skin which I recommend for individuals who live in more humid climates. I'd probably use this in the summer months though right now during the cold,dry winter months my skin looks dull, flakey and yet shiny at the end of the day. I can't decide whether if this product is causing breakouts but my face has been freaking out before I started using this so I'll update later on that subject.
This is a cream based eyeshadow that holds all of its glitter until you wash your make up off at the end of the night. It's subtle yet provides the perfect amount of shade that is terrific for everyday wear! I wear the darker shade of peachy pink everyday to work and I've received many many compliments. definitely worth the try!
An effective cleanser for removing makeup although, it does dry out my skin just a tad. At the same time, I'm currently under a strict retinol regime and if there are any irritation factors on a product I would notice right away upon application and this one has passed the test! Not a big fan of the smell but it's bearable still. I love lots of foam but this just didn't foam up as much as I would've liked it to. I wouldn't consider this to be my HG but, not a bad cleanser at all.

Wow! I absolutely adore this product. I love how it has oil controlling properties without overly drying your skin and upon application makes your skin look flawless. The finishing dust left my face looking pale and chalky but this blends beautifully and erases your pores! Did not irritate my skin, did not cause breakouts(I actually believe it helps prevent). Just lovely! If u have oily skin like me and find that ur a tad too bit shiny after your foundation, this is a great addition!

okay, am i the only person that smells something funky with the gel? i purchased a sample for testing because i've had such a good experiences with the liquid but this leaves such a horrid foul smell...could it be expired?? i don't know. other than that, hasn't caused breakouts or irritation. HENCE 3 lippies. minus 2 lippies for smell!!
I remember the first time trying this, it was definately fun and gross at the same time..But for some odd reason, this strip doesn't work the way i see it working for my sister and boyfriend. Everytime i do use it, only a very few are lifted out..i just feel as though it's a waste. As well, i realized you should either wash with cold water or apply a toner + lotion..or else i'd end up with a zit on one of the holes it leaves behind..oh right, the holes they leave behind aren't all that attractive either.

I've been using this for about 4 months now (on lvl6) and it is my HG for face care..handsdown! Initial stages, I did peel like a snake and purged a slight bit.. I also experienced some irritation of redness and sensitivity which was really, my fault (I can be a little impatient- had to learn the hardway lol) but after that, it was smooth sailing and beautiful skin! I receive compliments on my skin quite often..and trust me, that was never the case before GC came into my life! I have red/brown spots as well as pitted/box scars left from acne. GC has most definately evened out my skin tone, refined the texture and large pores of my face. Large pores is now my only concern..although GC has most indefiniately shrunk them a great deal. I'm moving up to lvl 9 next month! I'm so excited to see the long term use of this product!
I really love this stuff! lovely smell and leaves my hair smooth and silky! a word of caution..if you use too much, looks as though you haven't showered in days...only a tiny bit is needed to achieve the desired shine
To be frank...I'm really disappointed with this product. The colors don't apply well. Lots of loose flakes and not much color despite how much you dig and apply..exception of the gold though. The dark brown eye liner takes time to apply perfectly. what a waste of 35$!!!
