This product made my hair really shiny (after I flat-ironed it, that is), but that went away after an hour or so. I guess that was to be expected, however. The packaging kinda sucks, too.. it leaked a bit. But it does its job and the price is good and that's why it gets 3 lippies.

This is the one in the pump bottle with the micro beads, right? Haha, oh well, here goes. Like many other cleansers, this worked great for a while, and then stopped. I loved the micro beads; I really felt like I was getting good exfoliation. And it did keep away zits... for a while. Like I said, it stopped working after a while, so I'm back to the neverending search for my HG cleanser.

This worked okay, just okay. I used it before and after flat-ironing my hair. It helped to keep the frizzies down, but after a couple of hours, they were back and my hair was poofy again. Argh. Oh well, I'm using John Frieda Extra Strength (lol) Frizz Ease and that's working better. Oh yea, and the packaging of this, sheesh! It leaked all over my bathroom cabinet and got in the other stuff.

Is this the one with kinetin? Sure. Okay, well that's the one I'm talking about. So I heard this faded acne scars, and I mine aren't bad, but they're just annoying to me. So I bought a sample and tried it for about a month. And well... it was okay. Just okay. I really liked the silky texture. I was disappointed because it didn't fade my scars, but my skin did seem smoother and more radiant, so I'll give it that. Good stuff, just didn't do what I wanted it to.
You know, this cleanser worked well to rid my face of those evil pimples (!!), but after a while it started drying out my face (which is odd... since I have extremelt non-senstive oily skin and not much can accomplish that) So give it a try... it might work for you. But I'm still searching for that Holy Grail cleanser of mine.
I actually received a generously sized sample of this and I looove it. The color works really, really well with my medium golden skin. It makes me look awake and *gasp* dare I say pretty? ;) in the mornings. That's the true test, right? I'm not usually a blush wearer but this is wonderful.
I sprayed this on my wrist when I went to the department store just to see how it would wear and ohhh myyy goodness... its heaven. by the end of the night i could not stop sniffing my wrist! lol, I guess it just worked really well with my body chemistry. I cant exactly afford to buy it though, dangit, so I'll be dreaming...

I have pretty oily skin with occasional breakouts. I was using Noxzema for a while and that worked reeeally well (I didn't get a pimple for months!) but after a while it stopped working for some reason. So I switched to these and I really like them. I still get occasional zits (waaay better than pre-Noxzema, though). But I like that they exfoliate, too so you don't need a separate product for that. And it might be my imagination, but it seems as though my acne scars are fading! UPDATE: Yes. they are fading! Yay! And I discovered that for some reason if you use the cloth (i use the textured side for this) to rinse off the cleanser, you get better results.
