I was very pleased with this product. I'm currently experimenting with tinted moisturizers, and found this at Target. It's a little above average in pricing at $11 but I got it in this 2-for-1 deal, so I figured it'd be worth it. One thing that drew me in was the short ingredients list. I thought to myself, "Fewer ingredients, less chance of breakouts!" And the fact that it's supposed to be extremely organic (like it claims) helps as well. When I first used it, I was very surprised at the runny texture. A lot of people said it was really watery, but I think that that's an exaggeration. It clearly states on the bottle to shake up the product well before use, so that's what I make sure to do every time. The color matched me quite well, but it's not too hard to find my particular shade in a lot of skin products. It's VERY moisturizing. It leaves a very dewy look to the skin that I wouldn't call "greasy". I usually just set it with some powder, and it's perfectly fine. As a lot of you probably are guessing, I don't think people with rather oily skin would benefit from it. The smell of the product doesn't bother me at all. It reminds me of lavender in a weird, sort of earthy way. The scent disappears rather quickly when applied, so it shouldn't be an issue. One thing I don't appreciate is the packaging. Sure, it's cute. Yeah, it's very fitting to the entire advertising of the "organic" theme. But is it practical? No. Because of the products semi-runny texture, I found myself accidentally spilling out too much at a time. I REALLY wish it had a pump, otherwise I'd have absolutely no complaints. Overall, I quite enjoyed this tinted moisturizer, and have probably found my "HG" product.
This is absolutely my favorite perfume of all time. I got it for my 17th birthday from my aunt, who said that it made her think of me. I loved the smell, because it holds a very warm, oaky feel to it but is nowhere near over powering. When I ran out, I was so sad because I had no clue what it was called, and neither did my aunt. And everytime I'd search "Burberry cologne", I'd get something that my dad wears. Finally, I found it at Sephora and realized that I never found it in men's cologne, because it's a woman's perfume. (Yeah, I'm an idiot.) But I loved it so much, that I bought myself a bottle again regardless. I'd describe it as a winter scent, but it can be worn in the summer without fail. Lasting power is 8 hours on me, which I love. Many compliments and queries on what I'm wearing when I spritz this on. Love it, my signature scent for the rest of my life.
I never really got into toners, because of everyone's mixed feelings about them. Some feel they're pointless, while others swear by it. So I figured I might as well try one out, and luckily this is the first one I picked up. I was very skeptical of this at first, thinking it'd do nothing for me except dry out my skin. I just pour a small splash onto a cotton round, and swipe it across my face and jaw after I'm done cleansing. It definitely helps pick up excess oil and dirt that my cleanser didn't get. But when I first applied it, it had this tingling/icy/stinging feel to it that caused a very humorous expression to come across my face. All I was thinking was "HOLY MOTHER OF THE LORD, IT BURNS!" I was instantly turned off from it, but grudgingly continued to use it for unknown reasons. Then I began to notice that my acne was beginning to fade, as well as the oiliness of my skin. After a while, the stinging went away. I'm pretty sure it was just the initial shock of the astringent, but I began to appreciate the cooling sensation during the Summer months. Anyway, I'm quite pleased with this toner. Definitely will repurchase, as I see this becoming a staple product in my skin care routine.
I absolutely loved this tinted moisturizer. After hearing all the hype and praise (via YouTube) about tinted moisturizers in general, I was very curious to see what was so great about them. Unfortunately, I found most of the notable tinted moisturizers were so extremely expensive, that I almost opted out of even buying them. But then I heard about this tinted moisturizer, and- after consulting my web bff, YouTube- I went to Ulta and purchased it. It's relatively around $15, which definitely puts it in the "expensive" category as far as drugstore prices go. I thought I might as well try it out anyway since it's considerably cheaper than any of the high end brands. One thing I fell in love with first was the packaging. It's very sturdy, and doesn't feel like I could easily break anything. I LOVE THAT IT HAS A LOCKABLE PUMP. I apply it with my powder brush and it blends very nicely into my skin. I wouldn't say that it gives me any coverage, but more so that it definitely evens out my skin tone and helps reduce the look of redness. Doubled up with a few spot treatments of concealer and a dusting of powder, and I'm out the door. DEFINITELY will repurchase.
