Liquid -Maybelline - Instant Age Rewind foundation

This aged me rather than being anti-aging. Coverage was too heavy and it accentuated lines. It did give a matte finish and seemed to keep the t-zone oil-free; however, the overall effect was not pretty, at least on my complexion. Perhaps it would work for some people. I bought it thinking it was the same as the Instant Age Rewind Creme foundation that has been discontinued; boy was I sure wrong. I don't know why they had to change the formulation as I think it was pretty popular. At any rate, I would not repurchase.
I tried this in the Peach. It felt nice but there was no color to it whatsoever. It didn't last an hour, let alone the 8 hours the packaging promised. It could be addicting as you need to reapply it constantly--maybe that's the point so you'll buy more. In any event, I would not repurchase.
I am ambivalent about this product, but I was ambivalent about the Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum too. I don't notice very much improvement in drying time with either product, maybe 5 minutes tops. It does have great frizz control but I have to be very careful and not put too much in as it can weigh my hair down. It has been years since I tried the Paul Mitchell, but from what I can recall of it, this generic version is exactly the same. I would not repurchase either one--the Paul Mitchell is too expensive and neither one of them give me as good a result as a cheaper Suave product I have found. But for people who really like the super skinny serum, this is a great and cheap replacement.

Received a sample of this and now I'm hooked. It's the only thing I've found that tackles my oily eye lids. At the end of the day, my eye shadow looks like it did when I first put it on.

I'm impressed with this product and I'm a tough customer. For the first time ever, my nose wasn't shiny mid-day or even after work. It's everything other reviewers have stated and more. The packaging could be better but there's tons of product and if I ever run out, I will definitely repurchase.

IT FINALLY DAWNED ON ME WHEN I WAS NEARLY OUT OF THIS THAT IT REALLY PROTECTS MY HAIR FROM THE HUMIDITY. NOW I'VE GOT TO HAVE MORE.
I LOVE THIS POLISH AND NOW I HEARD THEY HAVE DISCONTINUED IT! IT LOOKS SO AWESOME ON MY TOES. I HAVE WHITE TIPS AND THEN USE THE QUEEN OF DENIAL ON THE NAIL BEDS. THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE WHITE AND THE SHIMMERY BEIGE IS VERY SHARP AND SOPHISTICATED IMO. DON'T KNOW WHAT I AM GOING TO DO IF I CAN'T FIND MORE OF THIS POLISH.
GOT A SAMPLE AND COULDN'T BELIEVE THIS PRODUCT. I GENERALLY PUT ON ANYTHING FOR A SUNSCREEN AND DON'T PAY MUCH ATTENTION. BUT THIS IS A SUPERIOR PRODUCT. IT CLAIMS TO LEAVE THE SKIN MATTE AND IT SURE DOES. IN FACT, I FELT I COULD GO WITHOUT ANY FOUNDATION AFTER I PUT IT ON. COMBINED WITH THE "EYE BRIGHT", THE WHOLE EFFECT WAS PHENOMENAL. I HAVE TRIED DHC PRODUCTS IN THE PAST BUT WASN'T SOLD ENOUGH TO REPURCHASE. THAT HAS ALL CHANGED.
I GOT THE SAMPLE AND WAS SO IMPRESSED I BOUGHT THE FULL SIZE IMMEDIATELY. I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY EYE PRODUCT PRODUCE SUCH DRAMATIC RESULTS. MY EYE AREA LOOKED REFRESHED AND BRIGHTENED--IN MY OPINION, MORE RESTED. NO OTHER PRODUCT HAS EVER WORKED FOR ME. I DON'T HAVE DARK CIRCLES, A LITTLE PUFFINESS AND CROW'S FEET; BUT EVERTHING WAS MUCH IMPROVED.

I LOVE THIS PRODUCT AND FIND I CAN WEAR IT AND NOTHING ELSE ON THE WEEKENDS. THIS IS SAYING A LOT FOR 54-YEAR OLD SKIN; I HAVEN'T HAD THE NERVE TO GO OUT "BARE" BEFORE. ON THE WEEKDAYS, SOMETIMES I USE IT AS A PRIMER BEFORE MY BASE. I USED THE NEUTRAL TO TAN EVEN THOUGH I AM PRETTY FAIR. IT SEEMS TO BLEND IN PERFECTLY. WOULD DEFINITELY BUY AGAIN.

IT'S EVERYTHING THEY SAY AND I LIKE THE PRICE, PACKAGING AND SCENT TOO. IT'S MY NEW FAVORITE FOR LIPS AND CUTICLES. IT HAS REPLACED THE DIOR ABRICOT CUTICLE CREAM WHICH I HAD BEEN USING ON MY LIPS AND HANDS BUT WAS MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE.
I'M NOT SURE WHAT TO MAKE OF THIS PRODUCT. IT DOES WHAT IT SAYS BUT I'M NOT SURE IF I'LL BUY IT AGAIN, UNLESS I GET IT FOR 1/2 PRICE OR FREE WITH PURCHASE OF SOMETHING ELSE. I FOUND I COULD PUT THIS ON AND NOT USE FOUNDATION AT ALL, WHICH IS NOT MY USUAL M.O. IT DID MAKE ME SEEM A LITTLE PALER AND I DIDN'T THINK MY COMPLEXION LOOKED RADIANT PER SE. HOWEVER, IT DID LOOK MATTE AND MORE UNIFORM AND ESSENTIALLY CREATED A BLANK CANVAS TO LEAVE AS IS OR TO BUILD UPON BY ATHE ADDITION OF BLUSH, FOUNDATION, EYE MAKE-UP, ETC.
I WANTED TO LOVE IT AND I DID, SURPRISINGLY. I WAS USING TRI BODY INFUSION. THIS IS REALLY SIMILAR--SAME DIRECTIONS FOR USE, EVEN PACKAGED THE SAME, BUT CHEAPER AND EASIER TO FIND. MY HAIR HAS SEEN IT ALL AND IT'S BEEN A REAL CHALLENGE TO INFUSE VOLUME BUT STILL HAVE SHINE AND NO FRIZZ. I DON'T FORESEE EVER NOT USING THIS PRODUCT; HOPE IT'S NEVER DISCONTINUED!!
LOVE ALL THE SEASONALS AND LIMITED EDITION BODY WASHES BUT I THINK MY FAVORITE IS COTTON BLOOM. I HAVE BEEN STOCKING UP; SOMETIMES THEY ARE AT WALMART OR GROCERY OUTLET STORES, McFRUGAL'S, YOU NEVER KNOW WHERE YOU WILL FIND THEM BUT THEY ARE ALMOST ALWAYS INEXPENSIVE. THEY LATHER GREAT, SMELL NICE, A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. NOT PARTICULARLY MOISTURIZING BUT NOT DRYING EITHER.
I JUST TRIED A SAMPLE BUT THERE WAS ENOUGH FOR THREE APPLICATIONS AND I HAVE TO AGREE, IT DID NOTHING. MY NOSE WAS STILL SHINY IMMEDIATELY AFTER FINISHING MY MAKE-UP. DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE ANY USE WHATSOEVER.
