I got a sample of the Foaming version - awesome! My skin felt sooo clean after using this! Highly recommend this product for oily, sensitive skins!
I love it! I have very fine, shoulder- length, highlighted hair. I don't use it everyday but it would be too conditioning. I use it a few times a week and add soem gel to it before blowdrying. Excellent product and awesome scent!
I love this!!! It truly lengthened and thickened my lashes! Will definitely buy again! I only wish it came in waterproof because I found it flaked off a little, tiny bit...
I got this as a sample - ew! It doesn't even foam up! I felt like my make-up wasn't even washed off..Will not be buying this!

I really wanted to hate this product because of the price ($29 Canadia, $33 with both taxes) but it turns out that I love it! The smell isn't that great but I got over it pretty fast. It develops into a nice golden colour (and I'm pretty fair) with no streaks or blotches! I was on the search for a new sunless tanner since my grad formal is next week and I think I have found it!
Cleansers -Biotherm - Hydra Detox Detoxifying Cleansing Foam

I love this! My skin felt really clean after using this to remove my makeup. I really like the little granules..they seem to exfoliate but hey are not harsh...Will definitely buy!
I just went out to Wal-Mart to pick this up in Portabello...love it! So cheap...it came with a clear gloss..all for $8 Canadian with tax! It is a nude, shimmery cream shadow...I think I will be buying some more (like I need for stuff!) Edit: This creased so quickly on me. Try Revlon's cream shadows instead.
Cleansers -La Roche Posay - Effaclar Purifying Gel Cleanser

Someone recommended this product to me for my newly acne-prone skin. I'm not sure if it really helped my acne situation but it is a great cleanser. It foams up (not too well though) and removes all of my makeup. It states that this product is soap-free which is important to me since I don't want to attempt to dry out my oily skin (it will just get back at me by making more oil). The price point isn't that bad (about $14 Canadian).
I love this under-eye concealer! The only gripe I have with it is that it is a bit drying (I can't use it in the winter when my oily skin goes dry). Now that it's spring, I've uncovered it from my makeup stash again and have started using it again. So great! I use the top two shades first to lighten the area and then the darkest shade to bring my under-eye area back up to regular skin colour. The best! I would definitely recommend this product to everyone!
I love the orange smell of this product! It's a creamy base (not greasy at all and I have oily skin) with orange beads in it. I'm on my third tube of it! It contains Beta Hydroxy which is excellent for acne prone skin. My only piece of advice is to not use it too often: as with all scrubs, they can irritate your skin and cause it to break out. Good luck! This is the one scrub I keep re-purchasing - it rocks!
I started to use this product under the recommendation of a fellow cosmetician who uses this to control her acne. I love it! I've only been using it for a couple of days now but I will buy a full bottle the next time I am at the drugstore. I have been very frustrated with my acne breakouts for the past year so I decided to give this a try. It stings a little on the first application because of the Glycolic Acid in it. I would recommend this product to anyone with oily, acne-prone skin. It also helps to exfoliate the skin since the GA is the main ingredient.
I tried this product a few years ago and hated it because it didn't take off all my makeup (I didn't even used to wear that much, not even foundation). I decided to give it one more shot and I love it!!! I have combination skin right now (coming out of winter, which will change to oily in the summer months) and I have been experiencing acne flareups for the past year. I'm trying to go back to a back-to-basics approach with my skin and this definitely helps. In order to get all my makeup off at night, I use a baby washcloth (found them at Wal-Mart, so soft and cheap!) to wipe off the Cetaphil after I have rubbed it all over my face. I will definitely re-purchase! Edit: I have changed my mind. This product made me break out. I've switched to Olay Cloths for night use and Spectro Jel for morning.
Treatments -Biotherm - Acnopur Emergency Anti-Spot

This is the best ance spot treatment I have ever tried. I put this on a bump (which would've surfaced as a pimple) one night and when I awoke, the bump was gone! I have never experienced this result with any other spot treatment. Edit: I'm onto the Spectro Jel spot treatment with benzoyl peroxide which is much, much better!
The foam from this product is incredible!!! This will definitely last a while! Totally worth the $25! It is a very effective acne product and I would compare it to the NeoStrata acne line..a little less harsh and drying though. I highly recommend this if you have acne prone skin. The spot treatment is the best as well. I felt a bump coming up last night so I put some on. In the morning, the bump was gone. Two awesome products from Biotherm.
