This is an amazing plumy red and it wears very well. It is an astonishing find for $1.00! It has a berry fragrance to it. I'm on my second tube, so this is definitely a repeat buy for me!
Lipstick -Mary Kay - Signature Lipstick Whipped Berries

I'm really surprised at how negative some of the reviews of this product have been. I only bought this because I have a niece who started selling Mary Kay, but I'm really glad I did. The color is perfect for me--a very classic berry with a light shimmer. It wears really well--I only have to re-apply a couple of times a day. The tube is nice and sturdy. I really can't think of anything bad to say about it.
I've been using this for years. It works great on my combination skin and thoroughly removes all my makeup. It isn't too drying, and at the same time, it gets rid of all my excess oil. I don't think you can ask anymore of a cleanser than that! And the price is definitely right too!
BB Cream -Skin79 - Snail Nutrition BB Cream SPF45 PA++

Overall, I think this is a nice BB cream, but I am not sure I will purchase it again. It is only appropriate for very fair skin--it has a greyish-pink cast. I think it would look mask-like on darker skin tones. It provides medium coverage and goes on smoothly, leaving a dewy finish. I set it with translucent powder, to provide longer wear. I do like the high SPF rating and the fact that it contains arbutin, which helps to even out skin tone. I'm not sure the snail filtrate is of definite benefit to the skin, but to be honest, I'm willing to try anything! I also use Mizon's Snail Recovery Gel. My main problem with it, is that it seems to emphasize the fine lines around my eyes, and that's what keeps me from giving it five stars. I prefer Skin79's Super+ BB Cream Pink Label. That seems to have a slightly more natural color and doesn't emphasize lines.
Treatments -Yves Rocher - Anti Breakage Nail Strengthener Treatment

I gave this product two stars because it has two pros: it makes a very nice cuticle moisturizer and it has a nice scent. However, it does absolutely nothing to strengthen your nails. I used it faithfully for six months with zero results. I will not be purchasing this again and I cannot honestly recommend it.
This mask was very pleasant to use and it made my skin feel really nice and soft. However, two days after I used it, my face broke out in tiny pimples on my nose and chin. So sad, because I had really enjoyed it otherwise!
I love this product. I actually use it as toner. I wear Korean BB creams, so I really need something that removes every last stitch of makeup, and this gets any little bits that my cleanser misses. It has a nice light scent and I like the fact that it contains different teas. It works great for my oily skin, but I think it would be okay for normal skin as well--it doesn't leave your skin feeling tight at all. I really think this is one of the best products that Yves Rocher makes.
BB Cream -Unlisted Brand - Holika Holika - Petit BB Cream - Clearing

This BB cream does provide nice coverage and the color was pretty good for my fair skin. It is also pretty inexpensive. The big disappointment for me is that it didn't work well for my oily skin. I had thought since it was supposed to be good for acne, it would also be good for oily skin. However, by mid-day, if I touched my forehead, it would literally come off on my hands. Trying to use blotting sheets worked no better--it just comes off on them.
BB Cream -Skin79 - Diamond Collection Pearl BB Cream
historian12 9/12/2012 12:41:00 PM
I got this as part of a Skin79 BB Miniature Set--I never would have picked this out on my own. I tried it one day when I wasn't planning on going anywhere. I really can't imagine what they were thinking when they came up with this stuff! It is so metallic, it made me look like the Tin Man from the "Wizard of Oz"! The only practical use I can think of for this is a brow bone highlighter--other than that, pack it away for Halloween.
This is my first BB cream and overall I am very impressed. It really provides nice coverage and evens out my skin tone. It matches very well with my fair skin. My skin is slightly oily, yet this BB cream doesn't make my skin slick and wears well. My slight acne even seems to have improved since I started using it! I like the opaque packaging that keeps the ingredients stable. My only real quibble is the pump--I find it hard to dispense just the correct amount, but perhaps I just need more practice. I would definitely consider repurchasing the product and I am anxious to try other Skin79 products as well.
I got this on a swap and I'm happy I didn't waste money on it in a store. It did absolutely nothing for me and I started getting milia around one of my eyes! I will never use this product again. The only good thing about it was the packaging, which is a pump, and is therefore nice and sanitary.
This is the most amazing shade of pink! It looks so natural on my fair skin. The pigmentation is great and it's very buildable. Who couldn't help but love a blush with a name like this?
I have oily, acne-prone skin, but my skin is not sensitive. This is the first cleanser I have ever used that actually caused my skin to break out, and I mean really break out--serious, cystic acne. The acne started to clear up as soon as I stopped using the product. I also found the smell rather unpleasant--it has a chemical odor. I will never buy this again!
After reading the great reviews on this product I thought I would give it a try. I actually bought the compact not the refill--the compact itself is great and the texture of gloss is very nice. My issue is with the color. Previous reviews had described it as reddish, but mine was definitely brownish--not what I would expect from something named "black cherry" at all. It was too warm for my cool skin tone and just made me look washed out.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Belli Acne Clearing Facial Wash

I'm not pregnant, but I got a free sample of this, so I gave it a try. I love it! It's very gentle and my skin feels super soft after I use it. My acne has been reduced since I started to use it. I also use it as a mask. It is rather expensive, but I try to buy it when it is on sale at either Walgreens.com or Drugstore.com.
