I have been using this on my face for 5 days and so far it's been pretty awesome. I have acne and am very interested in finding more natural products... I have done the Proactive thing, Neutrogena, benzoil peroxide, salycilic acid, expensive dermatologist topicals and pills, etc... Many of these items work for a while but then stop; seems like your skin can build resistance to whatever you're using after 6 months or so. Regardless, this ACV is cheap and natural and I can say with 100% certainty that my skin has improved over the 5 days I've been using it. I have slightly oily skin and thus have been okay using it 2x/day (no diluting) with a cotton ball after cleansing. I put on moisturizer after. My skin definitely has been doing some purging (ie. it's bringing all the clogged stuff to the surface) and my acne is lessening. Over the 5 days the purging has lessened, I believe because there is much less to purge! The blackheads on my nose are actually gone now! What remains are empty pores that look much smaller than they did before. I am actually pretty amazed with how great this stuff has been on my blackheads! I have noticed that on blemishes that the ACV is drying the spots up VERY quickly and the outer layer of skin is flaking/peeling off almost daily... what's left underneath is skin that actually doesn't look irritated or red like you'd think it would. It looks healthier! I am pretty darn thrilled... And apologies if my description above is a bit graphic or gross. I have had acne for over 10 years and I am just OVER it!!! ;-) If you have dry skin, I'd recommend either diluting the ACV OR just use it directly on your bad spots (blackheads, clogged pores, etc.) and not all over. The fumes do burn my eyes a little however it's a small price to pay. I usually put it on then just walk across the room as it dries/evaporates. Walking pulls the fumes away from my eyes so they don't burn. I will continue to use then report back in a bit!
Thanks to all the wonderful reviews I bought this product this weekend at Sephora and just love it. I think this is going to be my new, every day go-to eye shadow. It looks a little bit like a cross between a smokey brown & a shimmery copper. If you want more drama (like for going out), you can simply put it on thicker for a more smokey effect. If you want a more natural look (like for going into the office) simply put less on and blend. The lady who tested it on me at Sephora paired it with Laura Mercier "plum smoke" (she made a "C" shape with it on the outer corner of my lid/lash line); they look just beautiful together!

After reading all the wonderful reviews here I bought myself 2 different shades at Target for $3.59 each. I am 37 and starting to see signs of aging in my lips, so I was looking for something to get rid of the vertical lines as well as make my thin lips look a little fuller... This does the job! I am in love with this stuff and have been wearing it almost every day. I concur with the other reviews that state even on days where I don't put it on (but have worn it in recent days) my lips seem to remain fuller on their own (no vertical lines). For the fullest look I lightly line the outer edge of my lips in a neutral color then put a decent amount of the gloss on. It tingles just a little and is not unpleasant at all. This product will not give you Angelina Jolie lips, but you will see more fullness at a price that's hard to beat!
