I have to second squirtle78's review-huge clumpy mess! Trying to comb out the clumps only made it worse;the only way I got this to sorta work for me was to use a very light hand after wiping off the excess and then comb through with Maybelline Define a Lash. It's way too much of a hassle for so-so results; no repurchase for me.
Love It! My HG since high school!
I really like this cleanser. It feels nice and cool to my acne prone irritated skin. Cleans off all my makeup with one wash, and worked great for facial acne as well as bacne. A little goes a long way, too!

Finally, after a long expensive search-my HG! I live everything about it-nice, long lashes that look full and long for everyday wear and also is easily built up to evening full drama lashes. No clumps, flakes or smudges even in humid weather, but comes off easily with Neutrogena eye makeup remover. It even comes in a Blackest Black color that even outdoes Diorshow IMO. It's true love!
What a mess-flakes everywere! HATE IT!
The same thing happened to both me and my husband....used for about a week, then developed large red bumps along hairline on forehead and neck! What is up with this stuff?
Overall HG concealer, covers acne like a dream! Wear time lasts a 6+ hours on my oily acne prone skin. Only gripe is if you use it under the eyes it can crease into fine lines so just use it with a very light hand and concealer brush and you're set.
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product!! It literally saved my skin. It is not irritating and completely effective for the difficult to treat acne on my neck (which is a nightmare compared to acne on my face). Best of all it works great under makeup and prevents the greasies from breaking through-my HG for sure! :)
Looks great at first, then completely FLAKES-not a good look!
Really love the product, really hate the packaging! The translucent color is a perfect match for my PPP skin, and this works great as a loose powder. I use a Prescriptives foundation brush to apply, and it makes a world of difference in how it looks on. Looks luminous without being too sparkly like some mineral makeup. Great for absorbing oil and doesn't settle into fine lines...Yeah!!
I really love the Samy the Hairspray in aerosole, but the non aerosole is terrible. It goes on really wet and doesn't dry fast at all. Flattened out my style right away.
I bought this at Walmart because they were out of St. Ives Medicated Acne Scrub, and I'm soooo glad I did! It has really cleared up my complexion. The old acne scars are really lightening up and blackheads-gone. Love it as a body scrub,too-I use it before I shave and it completely got rid of ingrown hairs on legs as well as bikini line. It also seems to be helping with the KP on my upper arms as well-my HG scrub!

I love this hairspray! It gives my hair body and adds texture to the layers in my medium length wavy/curly hair. It also doesn't clog pores or cause breakouts (which is a major issue for me with styling products). I took one lippie off because you need just a very little spray and if you overdo it, you won't be able to brush through your hair and your hair gets HUGE. I ended up looking like I was wearing a Dolly Parton wig LOL!
Jergens Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Moisturizer is my HG lotion! It exfoliates well without stinging my sensitive skin and makes getting a close shave a breeze!
