My husband had originally purchased this product. I had seen it in the the bathroom and was rather intrigued by it considering the olay microdermabrasian scrub (check review) had failed on me. I absolutely love this product. It is definitely my HG product. I get excited when I get to exfoliate. I had used it around my jawline to smooth out any roughness and I just love what it does to my skin. Then I finally used as a pore minimizer and oh my I fell in love again. The grains are a little harsh, but I am possibly a masochist, so It doesn't bother me. Its worth every penny. I would recommend this to everyone and anyone. sidenote: I have never been so excited about a product that just thinking about makes me want to exfoliate. oh dear.
Scrubs -Olay - Regenerist Microdermabrasion and Peel Kit

I had purchased this mainly on the reviews, boy was I disappointed. I have next to near flawless skin. Water would never touch my face, my makeup would stay on till the next application and maybe a few blemishes a year. However after using this I was disgusted with the results. It did make my skin smooth, but nothing to call home about. What really got me was the blemishes that it had caused. I had thought maybe it was my moisturizer (also olay, started using that around the same time). I had stopped using my moisturizer and did another application, it did it again. I immediately stopped using this and gave it to my mom. She has been using Olay since I could remember. Everything was great, but the actual product itself. I really enjoyed the citrus scent. It reminded me of Tang. Definitely would not repurchase.
Primer/ Corrector -Bourjois - Lovely Base Redness Correcting Base

What is this? A waste of money? Oh yes, that is correct, a waste of money. My cheeks usually have this blush/flush look, which I consider a flaw. So what do I do? I try to cover it up, but what does this do? It leaves an ashy film of crap on my face. When I used this as a "primer" my foundation just wipes it off, it makes me laugh and possibly die a little inside. I have tried it over and under my foundation, a little and a lot of product, with a sponge and my 252 brush. I feel bamboozled. Definitely would not repurchase.
I had received this as a sample with the shade being one darker. As a sample I really enjoyed it, I had only used it to test the texture, lasting power and the coverage (especially on my cheeks). I always look like I am blushing. So I ran down to Sephora and picked up the correct color. It is a really good match. At first it was like a godsend, it was exactly what I was looking for in a foundation, but sadly it has failed me. Oh the pain in disappointing foundation. The packaging is less than up to par. It seems like more product gets onto my counter than me! Even with a primer, finishing powder and fix + it still melts off. At first it evens out my skin and I look really good then bam! hour four comes around and it slides off. It does however, blend really well. For $21 USD its not worth the price. Definitely would not repurchase.
