This loose powder is absolutely wonderful! It is very finely grained, and provides a flawless finish to my makeup. It prevents my foundation from wearing down and keeps my oily t zone matte all day long! The prize is amazing for the large amount of product that you get (I bought mine at CVS for about $7). I recommended it to my sister (who is olive-toned in opposition to my very pale complexion) and she was surprised by how transcluscent it really was! She now swears by it, as well. Because of all of the product packed into the container, it was difficult at first to get product out, but after a use or two, I had no trouble. The scent is very nostalgic and "grandmotherly," but I love it all the same. I was not pleased with the powder puff included, I found it a bit difficult to clean and it didn't provide an even coverage of the power. So I just replaced it with the e.l.f. Kabuki, and I'm loving life! I will repurchase and repurchase and repurchase!
The price of this product may seem a little ridiculous for its size, but don't let that stop you from purchasing this outstanding product! I apply an eeeesty-beeeetsy amount to my palm, and rub it through my hair before I style it. A little goes a VERY LONG way. This product makes my hair silky and shiny, and plus, I think it has a nice smell. My hair is a little oily, but Silk Infusion doesn't make my hair feel dirty or heavy with product. I've had this product since...October I believe, and after nearly five months, I haven't ran out! Well worth your money!

This product is lovely! I have annoyingly sensitive skin, and this product doesn't irritate. The first time I used it, I felt a very strong tingling, but this disappeared after about three minutes. By the second or third time i used this mask, the tingling wasn't harsh at the slightest! The packaging says for use for all skin types, and I deem it GREAT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN! It also contains papaya enzymes, which are lovely for skin. After washing away the mask, my skin always feels smooth and hydrated. In the long run, it also improves redness and overall skin health. Buy it, and I'm pretty positive you won't regret it!
