I have had this for some time, wearing it prob once a week. It is such a natural looking blush that gives just a hint of flush. I like how someone had mentioned that it is like the flush a child has b/c that is exactly what it does! I have worn this everyday for the past two weeks. I love that I can just slap it on over my tinted moisturizer and it looks great. I do not even have to reapply throughout the day. I need natural looking makeup in the winter time or I feel like I just look over done so this fits the bill. I would def repurchase.
I quite using the 3 step system and just use this with a the night cream or green tea moisturizer.I ONLY use this on my face. I don't have body acne thanks to the pill but my sister uses this for that purpose and swears by it. I swear Proactiv just continues to sell the 3 step so people will use these 3 steps. You can get a sixteen ounce bottle of this for thirty dollars or an 8 ounce one for about twenty. This will last me well over a year. Much better than 45 every couple of months. I have used this for a week and it gets my face so much cleaner than the renewing cleanser. It removes my left over makeup, I don't even need the toner. (my cotton ball had zero stuff on it but it always did with the RC). U can get the DCW on Ebay or QVC, read the QVC reviews. So many people are just using this on their face alone without all the other proactiv crap and it works. I love proactiv don't get me wrong but the 3 step is a pain in the A**. My skin is stable on Yaz so I have been so sick of doing all the work. Please try this ladies and don't buy into to Proactiv saying that this doesn't work as well on the face because it doesnt contain BP. They just don't want to lose you as a paying customer for the 3 step. I'm off to update my 3 step review! Best of luck-I'm an avid Proactiv user, I swear I have tried and used alot of their other products so if anyone has questions just send me an email
I have been wearing this for the past few weeks and I am ready to toss all my other mascaras. I love this so much because the color is absolutely the best I have ever come across. I usually wear the blackest black in mascara and it still gives off that greyish tint. (was using CG Super Thick Lash in very black) I have naturally dark lashes and green/hazel eyes so carbon black makes the green pop. I put one coat of this on and noticed an immediate change. WOW! I usually use Mac fluidline every morning but now I really don't have too. I use one coat of this during the day, (I don't like looking really made up) without eyeliner and if I want a more dramatic look I just add a couple more coats. I haven't had any issues with clumping, I hope I don't have any issues as the tube ages. I love the wand. I am not of fan of the rubber ones. To each her own, they just do not work for my type of eye. I live in fear of this being discontinued so I am going to hoard it. It seems once I really find something I like they decide to either discontinue or change it. Luckily, they sell it at my local Dollar store and Walmart so I'm just going to pick one up each time I go. lol I highly recommend using this if you have dark lashes already and have green/ hazel eyes. It is also easy to remove with my makeup removing cloths as night. It also doesn't irritate my eyes and I wear contacts.
WOW does this blow! This has got to be the worst mascara I have ever had the pleasure of owning. I am all about the natural look and even this was too natural. I agree with all the other reviewers, the wand does not pick up any product. I just feel like I am brushing my eyelashes with my regular seperator brush that came in my ecotools set. I applied three coats and my eyelashes actually feel like they have zero mascara on them. I have given this several chances to work but it has done nothing. Pros: I happen to like the yellow tube. I am a sucker for bright colors. does add some length and seperates lashes (very little since I already curl my lashes before mascara application) Cons: Color seems off ( the colors are not pigmented), price is too high for the little amount of product that seems to be in the tube, does not hold curl whats so ever. I bet this gets discontinued in no time.
After reading several reviews of people having issues with this turning too brown or red on their skin. I also own Luster which I adore but it doesnt give the same affect that Madly can (think Jennifer Aniston when she uses bronzer with the tawny blush) It looks so very natural and like its a nice day in the sun type of blush. To fix the issue I tried pairing it with a bit of Penny Lane underneath and then one swipe of Madly on top and it works wonderfully. It totally cancels out the brown and red blothcy affect that I had at first. I now have the perfect tawny cheek. I love Jennifer Aniston look when she wears the tawny blush and this is what comes the closest. I hope this helps people who have had the same issue.
I have had this brush for a while, it has been sitting quietly in my draw for months. I'm really into Nars cream blushes at the moment and normally just use my fingers to apply Cactus Flower. I have a problem with Nars Lokoum getting a bit streaky so I decided to try this brush with it. It really really applies it smoothly and naturally. Now do you have to have this brush, prob not. The price is steep and nothing can compare to the Nars Yachiyo.( I HAVE to have that brush for Laguna, pigmented blushes.) It's great. but this seems to pricey and I had zero luck with powder blushes with this blush brush. I am just glad its not wasting away in the drawer. I plan on using it for this and that will probably be all. I would not repurchase b/c Nars brushes do tend to last.
I have been using this system for almost ten years. I started using it when I had just turned 16 and I am now 25 years old. I never had bad acne I would just get breakouts around that time of the month. It would always be cystic acne (the huge painful lumps). I also had some tiny bumps that would just never budge. Even on the system I would still have an occasional light breakout. It never fully took care of my skin issues. It helped but it was not like the chics on the infomercials. However, I have been on Yaz for four years and in conjunction with proactiv my skin is the clearest it has ever been. I use almost all of the proactiv products. My face was tomato red for the first month of use but it seems to balance itself out and all goes back to normal. If you have dryness with this product use the green tea moisturizer it clears it up almost instantly. Dryness can cause more irritation to your skin. You also have to make sure you remove your makeup before you use the cleanser ( I love their cloths, that's a whole other review they are a bit pricey). Once I began to do this it really seemed to be more effective. I dont even wear alot of makeup but it did help. My only complaint is the price. I have found some good deals on ebay but otherwise you have to buy directly from them. They charge pretty high for just standard shipping and it takes forever. I am talking 2-5 weeks. This really sucks if you are running low on a product. I do like that they allow you to spread out your shipments over a 16 week period. I can stretch my use of this to almost four months so this works for me. I don't have to pay the 46.00 every two months. All in all I think this is the best acne system on the market. I just think some people have hormone problems (my doc believes this way my prob) that only meds will fix. The system just stabilizes everything so to speak. Just remember the moisturizer and makeup tip. This really got me better results. UPDATE: I just want to add that the new formula does limit the dryness a GREAT deal. I forgot to add that to my review. I have been using the new formula since it was released and it is sooooo much better. Best of luck! UPDATE:8/3- I am now just using the Proactiv Deep Cleansing wash and its sooooooo much better than the 3 step. It unclogs pores and you don't feel like your layering all this stuff. QVC sells it if you don't want to go the proactiv way(they have some great reviews as well) and they also have it on ebay. You get way more product. The big bottle will last me over a year.

I really love this product. I bought the med/tan color and it looks awesome. I already have a tan but my legs are the least tan part on my body. I have always had trouble with them getting really dark. I have been using this for 4 days and can tell quite a difference. It is awesome to apply, I have no streaks, and I am not left feeling all sticky. I am also clumsy as hell. I have some slight bruises on my legs where I have bumped into stuff or what not and this stuff really smooths it all out. It kind of reminds me of the Sally Hansen Airbrush (I tried this a while ago) but not as intense. My only con is the price. I feel like you do not get the same amount that you get in the lotion. So, I am only using this on my arms and legs to conserve. 9 dollars is pricey but I will most likely repurchase. I hope they do not discontinue. I love the fact that I can put this on and five minutes later put my clothes on. I always felt that the lotion stuck to my clothes and felt so icky. My husband even commented on the smell of the lotion. I know if he notices there is an issue. I had to make the change.
I have to agree with the reviewer below me. these are a total joke now. I don't wear alot of makeup and still have trouble getting it all off with these due to the size! Its insane. These were the perfect cloths before they changed them. I didn't even mind forking out the extra money because every night I only needed one to get the job done. I have used Proactiv products for ten years. I use their moisturizers, (tinted and regular), 3 step kit, Matifying gel, refining mask, oil free mineral powder, and pore refining peel. These are my essentials. This aggrivates me to no end that they would change this product. I am writing this review to see if anyone has had trouble ordering things from them. There shipping is awful and I have found that paying a few extra dollars to get it on ebay is best most of the time. Their standard shipping takes 3 to 5 weeks and is 6 or 7 dollars on one item. After another item is added it increases. WTF It took over a month to receive my last order and I called and they acted like this was completely normal. I haven't had much luck with the people on the other end of the phone either. Not very personable. PLMK if anyone has noticed this, I am getting fed up but I know I will keep paying for the products b/c they keep my skin perfecto. I guess they know that people like me will keep purchasing no matter the standards.
I have worn Laguna for years. I bought the Nars Bronzer brush and it just didn't work well for me although I like it for albatross application. This brush is awesome for applying just the right amount of bronzer. It surpasses any other brush i have ever used. It leaves your skin looking airbrushed. I only wear tinted moisturizer set with powder so I have found that sometimes my bronzer can leave me blotchy if applied to heavily, not with this. It doesn't blend it to harshly into the skin. I haven't tried it with blush yet b/c I have converted to cream blush. Overall this is a wonderful brush and I was really skeptical b/c it looks so strange.
I am in love with this. I have been using Sex Appeal and am really please with the results but this takes the cake. I finally broke down and ordered it. I have never tried a cream blush b/c they always scared me, but I kept hearing that cream blush is the way to go if you want natural looking coverage. (I actually read an article that cream blush is what they put on Sports Ilustrated models to get the natural beachy look) which is what I always strive for. I am so happy with this that I ordered another one to go in my purse. I consider myself to be low maintance and that is probably what I like best about this. I slap this on with my fingers and it gives this perfect flush. It is the EXACT color of my skin when I blush. I do not know what people are talking about when they complain of glitter. I get NADA. I apply with a very light hand and just blend. It is so easy. I am so mad at myself for wasting all this money on other blushes and brushes. OMG its in the hundreds. I will use this everyday! I also ordered Penny Lane just to try it out. I doubt it could be better than this. It just melts into my skin. I will fall into a depression if this ends up breaking me out.
I really adore this blush. I am NW25 normally and I am now about a NW 35 due to my tan and this blush still works for me. Like others have said if you have warm yellowish undertones it has a tendency to show up more.I only wear tinted moisturizer, apply the blush and then set with powder. I think if you wear heavier makeup it may not show up either. This blush looks soooooo natural. I have a ton of blushes and I have been wearing this for a few weeks now. I plan on buying another one here pretty soon just in case they do not add it to the complete line. I also tested this on my hand at sephora and it did not show up so I think it is best to apply on cheeks.
Well, this is my first review although I am addicted to reading the many reviews on this site. I just feel like I should let you all know what I have discovered. I have had the same issue with woodwinked turning orange on me! I have layered it over a base each time (mac painterly) and used it alone with the same result. I have green hazel eyes and I wanted this to work soooo badly! Today I tried it over quite natural paint pot and it has finally done what I needed it to do! OMG it actually looks like it does in the pan. that beautiful antiqued brownish gold. I highly recommend trying this out if you have struggled with this same issue.
