I love this product! I use the warm shade and it is a TRUE brown, not red no blonde but a true brown for brunette. I tried Anastasia, benefits browzing and LA colors and none of them has the color match and stay power as this. I have been using mind for almost 3 yrs now with 2 days in a wk wearing makeup. This little jar last forever! Make my skinny eyebrow thick and full.
This is the only mascara I will and can use. The waterproof version holds the curls all day without flaking. It clumps a little but u can easily remove it with a brush when it's still wet. It makes my skinny asian lashes so fat and long and look so dramatic.And it truely is waterproof, crying is no problem but it will eventually run off if u go swimming with it. I gotten so many compliments on my eyes and lashes. With a #1 couple in the mail it's only $5. Must buy!!!
I suffered from adult acne for couple years and it became severe last year. My face was swollen and covered with painful cystic acne. It got so bad that I would avoid contact with anyone, sit at work and cry all of a sudden, I blocked the mirrors in my house and dun even want to go grocery shopping! I also have rosacea so the topical med I can use is very limited, even oral antibiotic doesn't work. Finally I tried the Differin 0.1% lotion (NOT the gel, it's too strong for my skin!) Together with oral spirarolactone 200mg, and Epiduo, my skin is eventually clear! :) it probably took about 4 months that I don't have any new acne. Now I only use differin 0.1% on my WHOLE face everynight then put Cerave moisturing lotion (the big original bottle, not the night one). Differin help a lot in fading the acne scar and get ride of cycstic acne. My skin actualy have a nice glow now and I don't even need to wear makeup to work most of the time. Don't give me and keep using it, the clear baby soft skin will come! Don't give up!!! Remember always wear at least spf 30 everyday.
It burns my sensitive skin, it's not gentle at all. Use the Neutrogena extra gentle cleanser if u have very sensitive skin, if you want something that will lather up, use the Avene cold creme ultra rich cleansing gel (u can buy it online). Cerava moisturizer is the best.
I love all Cerave moisturizer including this creme, the moisturizing lotion, the day moisturizer with spf 30. Enough said! :) (However all their moisturizer burns my face so I can't use them)
I have rosacea and suffer from severe adult acne which I have been on oral spironolactone and Differin 0.1% lotion for a year (the medication save my skin btw!) Cerava lotion is super gentle and really absorbed and moisturize my skin. My skin feels supple and smooth! I even use it all over on my eyes area since I am too sensitive to even eye creme now. I am a makeup and skincare junkie and I have tried literally EVERYTHING in drug store and sephora. Cerave is awesome!
I have rosecea with pretty bad acne outbreak recently, my skin is extremely sensitive yet oily, it's a weird combination. I finally realized that physical exfoliation is not for me, I need chemical exfoliation like AHA/BHA. Although this product has some tiny beans in it, it is gentle enough even my skin can take it. I think it helps to unclog my pores on top of Differin lotion (btw Differin lotion is sooo much more gentler than the gel), it also help skin cell to turn over faster to help fade post acne marks. I m a makeup/skin care product junkie (with a basket full of samples of every product :p) and I have basically tried every product on the market, from low end to high end. I am sticking with this and repurchasing this!
Very gentle product, does not irritates my sensitive combo/dry skin at all. Way better than Cephail and any other drug store cleanser that claims to be gentle. My face feels very soft after each use. I can tell it helps to clam my skin from irritations when I keep using it. Love the pump packaging, even love it better with the new packaging (the pump turn instead of twist to close). It's dirt cheap and I will keep using this great product!
Tinted Moisturizer -Smashbox - Backdrop Cooling Tint

Edit: realized that this product is only good if you have almost perfect skin. It provides no coverage at all, I am going back to my Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer. Great product. Very sheer and light weight with SPF 15. Perfect for daily wear in the summer. I've compared this with tinted moisturizer from Laura Mercier, Stila, Clinique, Clarins, Chanel and Smashbox is the best among them. Does not provide coverage tho but that's the natural look I want. The cooling sensation helps wake me up in the morning too.
