Well, if I had reviewed this a month ago, my review would probably have been much different. I am 43 and have always suffered from cystic acne. I used accutane which really helped, but that was 5 years ago and my skin was starting to go through some really funky breakouts. I had small white pimples trapped under my skin for years, and I started getting really strange boil like pimples on my chin area. To make matters worst, I always had at least 3 cystic acne pimples on my face (and they were not small :( . I'm not sure exactly what caused the dramatic change, because I started several new things within several weeks of each other, but now I am scared to change anything. I have been using collective well being for over a month now. At first my skin got dramatically worst, but I kepy using it due to lack of funds to buy anything else. That was definitely a blessing in disguise because I can honestly say I have not had a cystic breakout in over a month. It is just miraculous for me.
HG foundation brush!! I have the Stila brush and the Sephora brush, neither one can begin to compare to the MN foundation brush. I am bedinning to take a look into the whole MN line.
Treatments -Loma - Pearatin Fortifying Repairative Serum

HG for me!! I have been using this for about 2 years. It not only makes my hair look shiny but repairs it too. I don't know what I would do without it. Hope I never have to find out!!1
OK, I have only been using this for a week now,,,,BUT it is really nothing short of amazing for my skin. I was having TERRIBLE breakouts, like I have never had before, (I am 42) after reading the advice on here and talking to my esthitician, I decided to give this a try. It is very drying and I would advise everyone to ease into step 3 (THE 5% BP) by using it only at night every other night unil you can ease into every night, then gradually add in the morning in the same way. Since I started using it, I have had no new breakouts, it has just brought some to the surface that were festering underneath (which I totally expected). Once I get my face used to the BP step, I will becin adding in Cellex C serum to my routine. Overall this is a great product so far!

I really hated this. While I thought it gave good coverage, it was REALLY cakey and totally enhanced my pores which is the last thing I need help with. I returned this to Sephora shortly after purchasing it. Besides being cakey, it made me look lifeless and like I had a mask on. Sorry, I just really don't have anything good too say about it.
This has been my signature scent for years. I love it. But sadly I just found out it has been discontinued!! What were they thinking???
Treatments -Derma E - Alpha Lipoic/Grean Tea Advanced Repair Complex

Very good product. I was afraid to use it at first. It is a little bit thick or at least thicker than what I am used to. I suffer from VERY OILY skin, breakouts and little white bumps under the skin. I have incorporated this into my skin care routine and it is great. It does not break me out and theGreen Tea does help prevent future breakouts. Since I have stated my new skin care routine, I have gone from ALWAYS having at least 5 good size pimples on my face to having NONE. Very amazing IMHO.
I love this cleanser. I have oily skin and cleans my skin gently but completely. It was so good I am now trying the rest of the Jan Marini line!
My HG of lip balms...I have it in vanilla...it tastes delicious. Its very moisturizing and will last along time. The packaging could be better..it can be difficult to get out of the tub...but it tastes so great and works so well, that I will overlook that troublesome little tub!!
Skincare - Body -Alba Botanica - Midnight Tuberose Bath and Shower Gel

This is a truly amazing shower gel. When you consider that it is all natural, lathers well, rinses off nicely and has a TRULY DIVINE smell, what more could you ask for? I will repurchase as long as they make it :)
