To start off, I have very oily skin and when I say oily, I mean within 5 minutes of applying makeup or washing my face, my face starts to become shiny. (no exaggeration here!!) I take great care of my skin so unfortunately my oily skin is hereditary :/ Anyways, I recently bought this at Target for about $6. I've been using this for about 1 week and I have seen a great overall improvement in my skin! My oily skin has become noticeably way less greasy and my face feels fresh and smooth after I wash it. Its great! I have tried the mask/cleanser, but this one is extremely better and worth the price! Recommended for those with super oily skin or those searching for a perfect drugstore exfoliating cleanser!

I truly love this! I was really excited to try this because of all the reviews I read. When I first used it with a brush I saw right away that it mattified my face. I use it right after I apply my make up and my skin gets oily maybe half an hour after application. It's such a pain in the butt becaus I'd have to blot maybe every hour and reapply my powder. But! Now that I use this, I don't even need to use those blotting sheets. I found it it works better when I use a mattifying primer underneath it ( I don't wear foundation) than with just bare skin. It's excellent at mattifying and keeping my makeup in place. I'm so glad and I'm so unbelievably amazed! So far it hasn't broke me out yet either :)
So I have been looking, researching on MUA, and just trying to find the most reasonable priced and best cream/gel liner. I was on the Sephora website and this was one of the cheapest waterproof cream liners. The next day, I went to Sephora to look for the liners that was on my list to try. I ended up buying Clinique's Bursh-On Cream Liner, but I did try Sephora's cream liner while I was in the store. (I used an eyeliner brush I had handy with me, and just did a simple cat-eye.) Let me tell you, I didn't even use an eye primer, I put it on a bare eye, and this lasted about 9-10 hours (when i took it off). It was amazing! I soon switched my Clinique one to the Sephora liner! And I LOVE it so so so much! It lasts super long, has a bold color, doesn't dry out, and its just so great. This is a HG forever!
This chi keratin mist was okay. i used it at a friends house a few times, and it kind of made a difference.... i would spray it on my damp hair and i will admit it made it shiny. however, later on when i used this product it didnt do anything but shine. not that great, just OKAY. :\

This saved my hair!!!! When my hairstylist was gone for about four months, i couldn't get my hair cut. So, i purchased this beauty, and it literally SAVED my hair! When i didn't get it cut, my hair was dry, unmanageable, and just in the worst condition ever. Then i bought this and applied it to my hair prior to straightening, blow drying, etc. This has made my hair much more shiny, silky, and manageable! I love this!!!! (btw, i have normal, dry, wavy, & frizzy hair.)
this is a great product!! i used it from a friend's house, and it already felt silky as soon as i set it on my hair. it makes your hair smooth as butter, but the only con is the smell. other than that, AMAZING!
