This product WORKS wonders if you use it the correct way. First, I open my pores by using my clarisonic for a minute. Then, I exfoliate. THEN, I apply this mask extremely generously. Afterwards, I rinse it off and splash my face with cold water. When I look in the mirror afterwards, there is not a speck of oil or a single blackhead on my face. I then put a very LIGHT moisturizer on my face skipping my nose. PS- don't leave this on too long. It will overly deprive your skin of oil and you will be left w/ dry, flakey skin.
I bought this product in what I thought was black but it ended up being black & sparkly. I really do not like the foam-like wand because it's not pointy enough to be able to create a thin line. Also, the color isn't very opaque. I felt myself having to go over the same spots twice to get the color dark enough. I would not buy this product again.
I feel like you need to use ALOT of this product to get the tangles out of your hair. However, when I do that, after blowdrying, my hair comes out greasy, feeling like product overload. I looked closely into the bottle, and the product is actual pretty thick in substance. So my overall conclusion about this product is that to use it, you should only use a 4-5 sprays, which may not get the tangles out, but it'll prevent your hair from having that unclean, overly soft feeling at the end result.

This product really took getting used to. I use the sensitive brush. The first few weeks, I went through a purge phase where my skin broke out SO bad. I have never really had bad pimples so this was new. At that point, I was ready to call it quits with this products, but I ended up sticking it out. GLAD I did. I now use this product once to every other day. It really softens my skins and opens up my pores, hopefully allowing my products to seep in better. I always use my clarisonic when taking off my makeup, but it really gets my face squeaky clean. TIPS- wash your brush frequently because it starts to smell bad. Also, I made the mistake of using the highest setting the first week I bought this. START OFF ON LOW, then work your way up to the highest or whichever setting as time goes on.
I like this mascara. I have tried several different brands, expensive and non-expensive & this is one of my top picks. My eyelashes are not very long but with this mascara, they appear to be a lot longer & fuller. I am not sure if they are growing because of this mascara, but it could be quite possible. For the price, this mascara was worth it.
I have bought this product twice. It looks nice with a tan or when I'm pale. It does have a "chalky" feel and look. At times, it highlights (or produces?) flakiness on my lips. If you use too much, it washes you out. However, I like it b/c I can combine it with lip liner, a dot of lip gloss at the center of my bottom lip, or wear it alone and it all looks good!
