so i got this after my friend said her sister had amazing results from this stuff. i didnt realize it was so expensive, but i got it anyways. i have to say, i'm a little on and off about this stuff. i have problems with my acne and scars very often, so when i got this i was excited about my skin finally smoothing out, and it did ! even though i have extremely oily skin and this is an oily product, i dont really mind it at all. i feel smooth and my skin feels super moisturized in the morning. the thing is, i can be somewhat lazy about my face routine, so i tend to skip a few days of this. when i do, my face breaks out like crazy. i guess ive gotten used to this product? the packaging also sucks... i understand why it was packaged the way it was, but i really have a problem with the sanitation issue of dipping your fingers into the jar over and over... overall, it's not that bad, wish it was cheaper :T oh, and i only got the 4oz jar - it's lasted me MONTHS, and im not even half way one with it !

i love this brush<3 i picked this up after watching various reviews on youtube and i must say i really do like it. it makes lining my eye so easy and smooth - controlling the line thickness is also extremely easy. it also comes with like a plastic covering for the brush part that helps to keep its shape and keep it clean after washing it - awesomeeee ! i just picked up a second one :] definitely recommend for anyone using gel liner
i picked this up after hearing so many girls raving, but i think its just alright. i got this for about $8? it goes on nicely and separates my lashes pretty well. even though its for volume i get way more length then i wanted (i naturally have pretty long lashes and just need some volume). i wear this all day, even when im playing volleyball and tennis - dont have any smudging problem with it, even though its deathly hot and muggy when i play. overall i like it, but wish it gave as much volume as it claimed.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel

was expecting so much more from this product :[ 1. it does NOT eliminate a zit earlier than 3 days 2. crazy expensive for such a small bottle, even though you dont use much 3. stings D: ! usually i love neutrogena, but this let me down i will not repurchase again x.x
while shopping around tjmax i saw this and checked here to see if it was worth the purchase. picked it up the next time i was there, and i must say, its not as great as everyone makes it sound. i wasnt expecting it to be like a gel? i dont like how it looks kind of greasy right when you apply, but it does smooth out as it sits in. i guess id like it better if there were immediate results? overall, not that bad and i'd repurchase - so cheep! **if you guys are still looking for it, check around tjmax and marshalls - theres a BUNCH at those places! good luck :P

so ive been using this for quite a while, and im getting a little disappointed. at first it was amazing - kept made my hair nice and smooth after i straighten my hair, but lately it hasnt been performing as well. maybe my hair got used to it? not sure but its just not as great as before. im going to go try the straightening gel instead, heard it works wonders.
gosh this stuff is wonderful! i apply it before straightening my hair, and it does wonders~ my hair is definitely less frizzy, sleek, shine, and so soft. it doesnt really protect from humidity in the long run though. it also comes in such a small bottle :[ i have to use about a quarter size since my hair is pretty thick, but it has lasted me a while. would definitely use it again
looooove this stuff<3 it definitely made my hair smooth and silky! its lightweight and doesnt weigh down my hair - also smells great :] bonus that i got mine at walmart and it came with a salon pump - makes shampooing so much easier <3
eh this one was alright. liked the smell and it did clean my hair well. i did notice a bit more shine in my hair as well, but nothing amazing. what turned me off was that it made my hair fall out? i would shower and use this, and when i rinsed it out i noticed a few hairs went along too. this happened every time i used it, so i gave up and went back to tresemme.

i was on the hunt for a good tinted moisturizer to even out my skin since i dont really like foundation , and i found this! gotta say, it's pretty good. i loooove that it comes with a pump<3 i think the color range is pretty small, but that's not really a problem for me. has a nice, easy to blend consistency that makes my scars less noticeable, along with my pores. it does make my few dry spots along my nose more noticeable, but nothing i can't fix. used this for a few months, but im still not even half way through my first bottle yet! my sister gave me hers since it broke her out for some reason, so it's gonna last me quite some time ^_^
ughh horrible creation! ok, it's easily applied and the brush gives nice control, but the formula is just gross! it dries super fast but peels no matter what you do :[ it peeled right after i finished applying and fell into my eye >:O so irritated! never again!
hmm a really interesting eyeliner IMO. the retractable aspect of this really caught my attention and was the reason i bought this in the first place. its lasting power is alright, definitely doesnt stay on all day... but maybe that's cuz i have really oily skin ? smudges really well if youre going for that look. it's also a pain to wash off, and the sharpener it comes with doesnt work at all. i do find it great for tight-lining though. overall, not that awesome but might repurchase.
i had high expectations for this, but it failed to impress :[ first, i found this mascara very clumpy when i apply it. it's ok when it dries, like it somehow smooths itself out? second, i find it doesnt really hold my curls - sort of like it weighs them down. just not impressed. i think i'll pick up a different mascara when im done with this one

as a liquid liner lover, i bought this only because my aunt recommended gel liners. today was my first time trying it and ive got to say, im impressed. the brush it comes with is actually useful , and i find it very easy to control. i find no problem with the packaging either. the color isnt extremely pigmented, but good enough for my tastes. i was mostly impressed when i rubbed my eye - i forgot i had liner on and freaked out when i remembered. i looked in my mirror and was surprised to find it barely smudged at all! overall, i think i found my new favorite eyeliner! *edit* so ive been wearing this while playing volleyball in a super hot and muggy high school gym... but it doesnt smudge AT ALL. the color does die down a bit, but i have absolutely no smudging problems. i couldnt believe it so i wore it while playing tennis, and i got the same results. i absolutely love this stuff :D
