Hello miracle! I have to admit, I'm kind of surprised that I'm actually writing that given my first couple of weeks with this product. I read in a Glamour article just how great this stuff was and decided to break my "I only buy drugstore" motto and head right on over to Ulta to pick this stuff up. (I don't have the extra cash floating around to spend on high end products besides, I firmly believe that you can find a good equivalent at the drugstore and spend up to 90% less compared to the higher end products.) Anyway, back to my first few weeks. I was using MB's Glycolic Foaming Cleanser twice a week, following the directions, and hey there!, my face was breaking out. I have pretty reliable skin. I get some whiteheads on my forehead but pimples are pretty rare for me. I decided to give it a month and if my face was still misbehaving, into the garbage this would go. About 3 weeks into using the cleanser, my pimples were clearing up, my pores were smaller and less noticeable, and my skin was glowing- it looked healthy and even toned. Even my minor rosacea was less red!! Now, as for why I rated the price a 1-- One $15 bottle of this lasts me almost 3 months. You really don't need much, just a dime-sized when washing your face. So, the price is completely justifiable to me. I can't recommend this product enough. It really has made that big of a difference. I can skip foundation all together and just throw on a little concealer for my day-to-day. Try it. GIve it some time for your face to become used to it. It is well worth it!!

This product did exactly what it says it will- it moisturized my hair but kept it light and full of volume. My hair is fine and thin- an AWFUL combo. It's taken me a lot of trial and error to find a conditioner that keeps my hair soft, shiny, and full of body. This is one of the only conditioners I have used that had me satisfied from the first time through the whole bottle.

I have been growing my hair out for about a year. I (stupidly) decided to not cut it for 5 months. I've used tons of different shampoos- this is the best one I have ever used. Once I got my hair cut, I bought this hoping it would help make my hair cut last longer- less cuts per year. It didn't just make my hair feel healthy- it was healthy. I still suggest using a cleansing shampoo (suggestion- Neutrogena Anti-Residue Shampoo) just to make sure you get out all of your styling products- once a week. Now my hair is healthy, shiny, and smooth.
