I heart this thing. I have issues with those big zits that you can feel coming from a mile away, and before I just had to deal with it, but now I can use this and they don't show up! Seriously, its SWEET! So I think its way worth the moola, and my tip is to use it as soon as you feel your zit coming. I used it on one that was already there and it got worse, but it may have been a fluke. So I'll try it again anyway another time. As for the pain, its not that bad, and I noticed that when I used the LOW setting it wasn't as effective, so I always use HIGH. Its not even that bad, the only time I think it acutally hurts is if I put it on an existing zit that hurts, but I'm like, it already hurts and I want to get rid of it, so its worth the bit of pain. But seriously its not bad. I still flinch but I'd say the first zap hurt and after that, it doesn't phase me. I'm not very tolerant of pain, fyi. So yeah I really recommend it, I heart mine. Anything to keep my face purrrty! lol! Before the only thing that worked was Proactive, which is chemical filled, which I don't like, so I still use Proactive, but I'm trying to ween myself off of it.
I like this product, my hair lady recommended it to me, she said to use it when my hair is damp before I blow dry it. The only con is it looks gross, but besides that I like the smell and I feel like it protects my hair. I'm going to start using it everyday though to see if I get noticably better results.
Moisturizers -Desert Essence - Jojoba Oil - 100% pure

Haha, I'm another one of those people who read these glowing reviews and had to try it! Love it! I have combo skin that is oily in the summer and dry in the winter...and this really works for me. Its not too greasy at all and I love thats its just pure and organic, I don't have to research all the ingredients online because theres only 1! :) Anyway though, if you're skeptical, try it. And especially if you're all about the natural and organic aspect...its wonderful. I will use this forever!

As most of my reviews lately go, I LOVE this product, but I can't buy it again because of the parabens. I took a chance and bought it online but I should have asked the ingredients. But I DO love it, the color is gorgeous, I think it goes nice with warm skin tones because its sort of golden pink. The packaging is so cute and the brush is adorable! I love it! And I got it for a good price on Ebay, but yeah, I'm so not about the parabens. :(
Okay, I love this stuff, its great and wonderful smelling and ah! I just love it, but I also am big on natural products, no parabens and all that, It kills me, but I don't see how they can call this lotion "Natural" because its full of chemicals! (tear!) So I'm going to use it all up and enjoy it but I can't buy it again because I really think chemicals are bad for your body!

oooh I heart this product, I use it everyday! It looks scary pink, but it goes on a nice shade that pops, but doesn't look to artificial or anything. Also, its nice because you can control the intensity of color by just not swiping it too hard on your cheeks. :) I think the consistency is nice, not to greasy, blends very easily...it just gives you a pretty flush. Plus I'm an anti-chemical crazy lady and I don't remember freaking out when I looked at the ingredients...like I usually do with Smashbox products, but it was a long time ago so you may want to check first.
Tinted Moisturizer -Juice Beauty - Tinted Moisturizer - SPF 30

I bought this product and I like it, but I've found its a bit too greasy for everyday use for me...I can only use it when my skin is dryer than normal. I like the natural aspect of the product, the good SPF and coverage as well. the weird thing is it looks kind of gross in the bottle, lol! Its a weird consistency and has watery stuff surrounding it. But it doesn't matter; Good stuff!
Moisturizers -Boscia - Oil Free Daily Hydration SPF 15
chihero 4/8/2008 10:00:00 PM
This is another product I heart! I got a sample at sephora and like it so much that I had to buy it again. I didn't notice any chalky look when I use it because of the SPF at all. I love the paraben and preservative free aspect, but it is really expensive for the little package. I feel like it's worth it though. :)
I love this product! It's my favorite cleanser ever, it's never over drying, the smell is really nice and it takes off my eye makeup. And the other reason I love it and will keep buying it is because its not full of parabens and bad chemicals. I am going to try the acne kit by them next.
Moisturizers -Stella McCartney - CARE 5 Benefits Moisturizing Cream

I got this sample from Sephora, and I really wanted to like it, especially because I'm all about the natural, no chemicals products. But I didn't! I thought it was stinky and greasy! :( It does smell similar to aveda products (which I can tolerate the smell of but don't like) but I thought it was a little worse. I did not smell any lavender like some of the reviews said. And I thought the feel was pretty greasy, like another user said, I have combo skin so if I did ever use it it would have to be only in the winter. I'll stick to my Boscia oil free moisturizer that I can use anytime.
Liquid -Korres - Ginger and Vitamins Foundation, SPF 10 [DISCONTINUED]
chihero 3/21/2008 8:41:00 PM
I really like the Korres line. This is defnitely more like a tinted moisturizer, with pretty sheer coverage. Thats okay for me though, I'm not really into cakey make up and I'm guessing most people who are into natural make up aren't really anyways. I got an even numbered color, I think its L4, which matches my warm skin tone well. I got the powder too in the same shade and I heart it. It gives you a really polished look, so I really like these 2 products together. :D
I got this as a sample and I really like it, the only reason I wouldn't buy it again is because its got parabens in it. The consistency is more of a foundation than a moisturizer, which is fine with me, it also provides good coverage with no white look from the spf 20. The shade matched my skin perfectly (Medium Olivey) but it also looked fine on my sister in law who has very pale skin. Maybe she didn't put as much on. I like this much better than the Juice Beauty SPF 30 that I bought, that one is more greasy which makes me sad, because its all natural! So if you don't care about parabens, you should get this product, its great!
I bought this in the Smashbox trial deal for 29$ at Ulta. I think its neat, and it feels nice and moisturizes just a teeny bit, which is nice; BUT thats about it... It doesn't really do much else for me! I wish it did!
I just bought this on a guess before I found this website, and I heart it! It has an excellent creamy texture, but its not too overbearing or greasy, and the tint is just that, a tint. Oh and I do love the smell of it, its pleasant and not over powering.
