I got this for the unbelievable price of $4. I live in Europe and my dad is a veterinarian, so I had him order a tube of Retin-A for me through the pharmaceutical company. They donīt ask for prescriptions and we get a very nice discount. I had ordered the 0.025% strength, but they sent ut 0.05% instead. After my previous use of at-home chemical peels (TCA 12.5%, Glycolic 40%, Lactic 60%) I was still nervous about my skin getting red, dry or flaky. I started off with a sample of green cream level 9 which I experienced no irritatation with. Then I started using the Retin-A, at first every 2-3 days, and after only 10 days Iīm at daily application. I only had some minor flaking on my chin (seriously, I got the same flaking from my low % glycolic acid serum!) and my skin feels more sensitive....like when I use a powder brush thatīs a bit scruffy. So I`m just a little more careful with my brushes. After only 2 weeks the hyperpigmentation on my face (from past mild acne) is fading with almost every application! My skin is so smooth and soft, not a hint of dryness. My skintone seems more even, and has a glow to it that I have never seen before. I plan to keep on using this (less frequently then) after I have achieved my desired results. I`m 24 so I want an anti-ageing treatment that actually works! I understand that my results considering the lack of side effects I experienced are NOT typical. I am beyond surprised about this myself. I hear that the side effects donīt appear right away, but after two weeks and the recent daily application the side effects should have been here already...but theyīre not. This is the very best $4 I have ever spent! lol
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

I have tried a couple of good medium/full coverage foundations (MAC Studio Fix Fluid, MAC Studio Fix Powder, MUFE Mat, Diorskin Extreme Flawless) and was never completely satisfied. Even with primer, my foundation never lasted through a regular day, heat, sweat, clubbing...my face would be blotchy, reddish, uneven. The coverage was still there, but not evenly. MUFE HD is THE best foundation I have ever tried. Ever! I am so extactic about this foundation I canīt stop raving about it. It looks so natural, even if you layer it for more coverage! Itīs expensive, but so worth the price. After all, who doensīt want flawless skin? Go get a sample NOW!
I received a sample of this at Sephora, and after about 3 uses I could already notice a difference! The stubborn hyperpigmentation (post acne) on my cheeks that I had previously treated with Mama lotion, Glyocolic Peels (30 and 40%) and TCA peels (12,5%) were improving! I was pleasantly surprised that it works much faster than the other products/peels I had used, and itīs much more gentle. Sometimes I do have to moisturize afterwards, but i think itīs because instead of using it every other day as youīre supposed to, I use it every day. I like seeing results fast! Overall, this is my new HG skincare product. My hyperpigmentation is getting less every day, and this is also the first product Iīve tried that actually evens out my skinton! (well, besides self tanner hehe). Oh, and I have to add: Iīm a light skinned caucasian, so even though this line is marketed towards ethnic skintypes, I believe anyone can use it. I donīt think it was absolutely necessary to call the line Rx for brown skin, since a lot of people with different skin colors have hyperpigentation and uneven skintones. If I hadnīt received a samplepack with this stuff included I would have never thought about asking for a sample because well..I donīt have brown skin. Bottom line: Get a sample if youīre near a Sephora!!!! From most reviews it seems like you either see results very fast, and if you donīt this product is just not for you.
