When I first used this, I loved it. It smoothed out my complexion, covered nicely and just looked good but not heavy. Unfortunately, within about two weeks I developed severe acne along my jawline with no other changes to my skin care regimen. I am 42 years old, and while I do get acne sometimes, I dont get severe amounts along my jawline and cheeks. It has taken more than 3 weeks for my skin to get remotely better. Probably didnt help that I continued to use it when I was getting acne, thinking "oh, i need to use more because my skin looks like crap" when it was the cream itself causing the acne. Too bad as I really wanted to like this product.
I have worn this perfume, and this perfume alone, for a few years now. I adore it adore it adore it. It smells amazing, and I am not one to spend money on perfume. But for this one, I will. It's my HG of scents...I just can't explain why I love it so much. It makes me sooo happy. I hope they never discontinue it.

I have very oily hair, but the very ends get dry. I mean, so oily i wash it and two hours later it looks almost wet. Okay, I exxagerate. But seriously, I hate it. I have only tried this once, but already i am impressed. it gives my hair body and my hair is NOT OILY and its been 10 hours since I washed it. I will update this review over the next week as I use this shampoo. I only bought a trial but I bet I will be buying more.

I am a 42 year old female with some wrinkles, but also some acne. I also have dry zones and some acne scarring. I am pleased with this product after using it for 3 months. I use a foundation brush to apply, and I think it looks natural with good coverage, but not TOO heavy (I hate the heavy look, and used to use only tinted moisturizers). I will buy this again.
I bought this on a whim, in the color Thanks a Latte, sort of a pinky coffee color--not a color I would normally buy, but I figured for 1.99 I could take a risk. First off, the color is great. Really attractive (I have tan skin). The brush was a bit poofy and big, but it didn't really bother me tremendously. I finished this with a Sally Hansen topcoat. I will be going back and buying more--particularly want to try the Cougar Attack (I think that's what it's called-it's a glittery copper one). Happily surprised.
I have oily skin that also has some dryness (in other words, i am getting older) and this stuff caused me to break out. I liked it initially, but by the end of the week i had 4 more zits and hadnt changed anying else. In the garbage it goes.

I really like this product. I don't like heavy foundations at all, rarely wear them, but was looking for something light to even out my skin tone and give me sun protection (this has SPF 15). Bought this on a whim and really like it. It gives a dewy look to one's skin (and I have combination skin) and I never worry that I'll have that caked-on look. Overall, I really like this product and will purchase again.
This is my HG product for my hair. I have oily, dirty blond hair and use the White Hair Powder--i now only wash my hair every other day, and use this powder every day--it holds my hair in place and makes it 'rougher' and stickier (in a good way!) for when I want it up in a pony or bun. It adds texture to my hair, almost like beach hair. It is NOT for people who want smooth, straight, silky hair. It makes your hair stiffer almost, but the 'holdabillity' factor is huge. I absollutely love it and order it online by the case. Yes, there is a bit of white powder on my hair after using, but i just slick it back with my hand and it's gone. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i had tried everything for my oily, acne prone skin. finally, i just decided to try sommething 'simple' and this was what i grabbed off the shelf. my skin is now so soft, no breakouts, no dry patches, and smooth. now i am focusing on finding products for my acne scars and pigmentation, but so happy that i've had no further breakouts since starting this 9 days ago. i also did a MUAC glycolic mask so that helped also.
