ok first of all this stuff really works for all skin types. I used this for 2 years and i thought my acne and skin problems were gone for good. then all the sudden my skin started breaking out and i thought maybe it was the moisturizer, so i stopped using it! BAD IDEA. I tried 4 different kinds of moisturizer, and all of them dried out my skin to the point where i was breaking out more because of it. Murad oil free, peter thomas roth oil free, proactive oil free, and DDF. All were chemical nightmares and each one did nothing to moisturize. Finally i talked to the girl at origins becuase i wanted to go back to my perfect world. She told me that this would not make my skin breakout becuase althogh it has oil in it, its all essential oils and those particles are too small to clog pores and essential oils are most like the natural oils on the skin. After 2 days back on it, my skin is glowing and looks really smooth, although i think im still gonna break out a bit because of the torture on my skin for the last 4 months from other stuff i used on it, i know this is gonna work. also my skin is really oily and after 4 hours or so i blot my forehead and nose but a small price to pay for a all day glow!
LOVE LOVE LOVE, i have used this for about 3 years now. I use the blonde and people never tell me that it looks like i draw in my brows. Although a little pricey because it doesnt last as long as i would want, although as soon as i got my own one it lasted a whole lot longer.

i actually dont use this product on my face, i use peter thomas roth oil free moisturizer on my face. I am very prone to acne on my face chest and back. I have been using this on my back and chest for about a year now, on my face is freaked me out because of the syclic acid in it along with my BP treatment, i thought it would be too drying, so it pretty much keeps me clear and keeps my chest and back moisturized. I havent found anything that i like so i will keep buying this. ill keep updated on the progress of the PTR moisturizer for my face.
I have extremly oily skin with extra dryness in spots from my acne treatment. I saw the infomercial and believed it, when if first got it my acne was flared up a bit but beginning to dry up (my monthly flare up) then i was soooo excited that i got the BE because i THOUGHT my acne would be cleared up for sure. After weeks of using it the flare up got so bad that it hurt and were huge cystic zits. All over my chin and i rarely get them on my chin. After finding this wonderful site, i finally relized maybe i should go back to my old makeup which is cliniques oil-free stay true foundation, that was last week and my acne is really clearing up. I just told my friend today and she relized the nasty breakout she has been having for a year now, started right when she started using this makeup. Acne-prone skin BEWARE!!!

I have bought 2 tubes of this total and now i really regret it! First my lips started peeling and were much more dry, then i would reapply several times during the day, and finally i started getting little whiteheads all around 1 side of my mouth. Looked like i had a disease. lol but really i kept using it because i didnt link it to my chapstick, dont use it, its crap!!
