This just did not work for my skin. I could live with the white cast as a bit of foundation and bronzing powder took care of it for the most part, but it irritated my skin, leaving me with two large red bumps on my cheek after only a few hours of use. What a waste as it was very expensive.

I had high hopes for this one, but there is something in the formulation that does not agree with me. It made my eyes burn like crazy and made my face itch. After a full day of wear I had rash-like bumps in the areas where I experience the itching sensation. It's too bad, because I loved the finish.
This product stung my face upon application and clogged my pores. I also had a hard time getting the pump dispenser to work. Not for me.
Pros: -tint doubles as a sheer foundation, evens out skintone -broad spectrum protection -no avobenzone to worry about stability issues -did not break me out -pleasant fragrance -lots of antioxidants. Cons: -thick and shiny when full 1/4 teaspoon is applied, just sits on top of my skin but after a few hours sinks in -white cast - removes all hint of yellow tones from my skin, gives somewhat of a sickly appearance -low ppd -pricey

I could not possibly rave enough about this product. Takes off sunscreen and makeup, rinses off with water without the need for a cleanser afterward. Does not leave my skin feeling dry *or* greasy and does not break me out! A bit on the pricey side but worth it. EDIT: My skin has been really dry lately and I've noticed that this cleansing balm is the culprit. I think it is a great product for someone with oily skin but it left mine parched. Also, I realized it doesn't take off eye making as well as even some of my regular cleansers. Have to knock off 2 lippies.

I tried so hard to get this to work for me - short contact therapy, mixing with moisturizer etc.. but this irritated the heck out of my skin. About 1-2 days after applying, my skin would erupt into burning red patches and bumps like clockwork. I eventually gave up and realized this just wasn't for me.

Made my hair feel a bit thicker but it also felt coated and weighed down a bit. What annoyed me most is that my hair became a static nightmare. Would not use this again.
This separated my lashes nicely and doesn't clump. But the effects were not as dramatic as you'd think by the name and packaging and all day long i had little black flakes under my eyes. Not worth the price.
Made my skin pretty soft and I liked the feel of it going on, but realized after a couple of uses it was breaking me out :( Think I'll give this one away to a friend.
Absolutely love this! It's what I use on my face every night - nice and thick and moisturizing, and best of all, no breakouts! No fragrance either. You can't go wrong with this cream unless you have very oily skin.

Very yummy scent that's not too strong and lasts all day, and I mean ALL day. I put it on at 7:30 this morning, and here it is at 10:30pm and I can still smell it! Would definitely repurchase.
Horrible...needed like a hundred strokes just to get any decent pigment on my eyes, not to mention the tip kept breaking off! Just tugged at my lids, and the line ended up thick and blotchy. Would not buy this again.
Excellent product. After the first week of using this, I was getting compliments from people on the improved appearance of my skin, but they couldn't quite put their finger on what was different. Also, it is an excellent primer for undereye concealer. The moisturization properties are fab as well. I love the consistency..it's easy to smooth onto the undereye area without any tugging. A bit pricey, but worth it.
Love, love, LOVE the colors! Nice and sheer and glossy without any of the 'sparkly' stuff. The only downside is that they dry out my lips. Not sure if I will continue to purchase.
