My HG moisturizer! On my second bottle of this stuff. I really wanted a body oil, but one that soaked in quickly. This is like a hybrid oil/lotion. Moisturizers all day and fast like an oil, but goes on smooth like a lotion. I was worried since it does have fragrance in it, and I am super sensitive. But when I put it on my legs there was no irritation! It is pricey compared to Vaseline, etc. lotions. But if are used to buying more expensive drugstore lotion like Eucerin or Aveeno it is pretty average. So even though this has fragrance, I approve it for all us fragrance-free product buyers.
This is for "Decadent". I bought it on a whim while on vacation in Miami while buying sunscreen. I liked the neutral shades and the modern packaging. I use the gold shade just about everyday. It stays put four hours and has good pigmentation. The other colours...meh. The brown is good to create a smoke eye, but is hard to blend out. If they come out with a better colored neutral quad I would buy it again.
I used one and 1/2 tubes of the Light colour. I really liked this for a while, but then half-way through my second tube I noticed that it was drying out. Which made it almost impossible to blend. :(
Bought this because I do not like the new formula of the regular Clairol Natural Instincts. I had used a Japanese hair dye that was not ammonia free and ended up with brassy roots! I let it grow out and hoped that it would wash out. Most of it did, but it was becoming noticeable as my darker roots grew out. It looks like a brass halo! So I bought this in light brown and it completely took it out! My hair is now all one color now.

I'm on my second jar of this. I'm on Accutane which dries out your skin and needed a cheaper basic moisturizer. It is good as a night cream only. I feel that make-up of any kind. Mineral, concealer, liquid does not set with this stuff. It take a long time to sink in, hence it being a night cream. A good night cream, I just dip my middle finger in and rub in. It DOES have an oily feel and look for about an hour after application then sinks in. I have noticed reduced redness around my nose, which I wanted. I recommend this for people looking for a good quality basic moisturizer. Eucerin is good quality for the price. I prefer their products over Aveeno, which is good but I hate the fact that they add fragrance and color. (I prefer BareMinerals and L'Occitane natural products) Also! I LOVE the packaging. The best drugstore I have ever seen. It comes in a glass/ceramic jar. Very high end for a $14.99 night cream. Bare Minerals doesn't even do that!

I really wanted to like this product. Awesome pigmentation, glides like a dream. BUT. It clogs my pores! I get a white blemish on my upper lash line at the end of the day that hurts. Not fun. Will not buy again. Plus it is not an automatic liner and expensive.
I have been using this for a month now and like it. Basic cleanser that is lightly hydrating. It is foaming,so it not going to be SUPER hydrating. It is soap-free and fragrance free so good sensitive skin types. I like it, it is cheap at around $5 (I was using BareMinerals cleanser for $24) in a large pump bottle that foams up well. I remove my make-up BEFORE I use this, so one pump is enough for me.

I only have a bag full of samples from my dermatologist right now, but will buy more when I am out. I am on Accutane and am getting super itchy, dry and red patches all over. It is very thick because of the petrolatum in it, so I just use maybe a dime amount and rub it all in my hands to warm it up then pat on my face at night since it takes a long time to sink in. It immediately helps out my redness and keep my skin supple all night.
WHOO! My HG body wash. Use it with a nylon exfoliating mitten. Great light scent, super moiturizing, and rinses clean. I can even shave my legs with this! I am on my 2nd bottle.
I am running out and went to buy more, but cannot find it! Did they discontinue it?!
I prefer the original version to this. The brush is annoying!! I have to run it through a tissue before applying because it has too much product on the edges. Does give volume like it says it does, and my lashes feel moisturized and since I was using the normal version for 3 months before this I can say that I HAVE seen more lash growth/longer lashes.

WATERPROOF VERSION REVIEW. Does what it says it does. It makes your lashes look lush, long and curled. However it flakes and clumps. I had to use a dry old brush to get the clumps out. Maybe this is because it is the waterproof version? Will not purchase again. I prefer Rimmel's.

I have tried this for a month, and can't do it anymore. It is definitely the cause of my break outs! I keep getting little clogged pores and blemishes on my nose, chin and forehead. It moisturizes well, but if you have sensitive skin I would not use it.
I can't believe all the bad reviews! ;_; I had horrid skin before using Bare Minerals(you can see pics on my blog fuuflower). A friend told me it changed her rosacea, so I decided to try it too, but got the matte because I have oily skin. WOW-after two weeks of use my pores were smaller, less pimples and less redness. The coverage it medium, if you want full-faced coverage I recommend a liquid foundation underneath and/or concealer. Although, you can dab on the foundation on those places and use it as concealer as well. The active soil complex in it I think is the key, it helps dead skin cell turnover and my face is noticeably softer. 5/5 for me!

I bought this for my boyfriend, so this is a review for a man. He normally just put fragrance-free Curel on his face, so I got him this that has an SPF in it. He has made no complaints, it soaks in quickly and doesn't smell girly so it is great for guys. I haven't noticed any anti-wrinkle effect, but it is more of a preventative thing.
