This is my holy grail! I have been searching for a natural, cosmeceutical line with effective, active ingredients to help with anti aging, hyperpigmentation, and most importantly, acne (when I am having a breakout I mix in some of the acne powder blend). I get compliments on a regular basis since using this serum and have seen a real improvement. Highly recommend! EDIT*** they changed the formula as of jan 2012 and the new serum although smells better and supposedly has a better delivery system, it really broke me out. the more i used it the more acne i had. looking for something new. i still love their purify cleanser and catalyst though.

This enzyme, orange scented cleanser is AMAZING! it smells good, the ingredients are natural and healthy, and it never leaves my sensitive, yet oily and acne prone skin dry or stripped. I highly recommend it and use it 2x a day with my Clarisonic.

I bought this and loved it's slim packaging! I hate all those bulky electric toothbrushes so when I found this I was psyched. Only thing is that after 6 months it died. After only 6 months?! Wtf! It would not turn on or charge, and I take excellent care of my items. My other braun I had for over 5 yrs and it still works to this day. Great idea, but cheap quality. I am tempted to buy another and see if I have the same results. Hoping it was just a fluke type thing.

All i can say is AMAZING!!!! these brushes are far superior to anything i have tried, whether it be from sephora, mac, bare escentuals, 100% pure, ect. and the cost is so cheap anyone could afford it. i am an esthetician and these are the brushes i carry in my makeup kit and use on myself. there are about 11 other makeup artists i know that rave about these as well. the mini kabuki brush is just the cutest, softest, most effective application brush out there. i also have the cute carrying cases from this brand as well.
Tinted Moisturizer -100 Percent Pure - Fruit Pigmented Tinted Moisturizer
cls82 4/18/2011 3:47:00 AM
i only purchased this because it was on sale at hautelook for 10 bucks. i currently use 100% pure full coverage foundation, which i love, but my skin has been dry lately for some reason, so i thought the tinted moisturizer would be great. well.......it feels great. the packaging is a perfect 10! so cute and hygienic! the ingredients are great. it moisturizes. but........it offers absolutely ZERO coverage and it is slightly shiny. i know a tinted moisturizer isn't supposed to offer fulll coverage, but at least some coverage would be nice! i have experienced a few larger than normal blemishes since i have been using it the past week, but i have not pin pointed if it is exactly this. it is great to wear on the weekend, or if you need to run out to the store, or maybe to the beach because of the spf. i will keep using this, but i will use it under/as a base for my foundation.

I absolutely LOVE this lotion. The ingredients are amazing, it smells delicious, it truly moisturizes, yet i can still use it on acne prone places like my chest and back w/o any problems, and their customer service is divine. I am sooooo happy I stumbled upon this wonderful lotion!! It's a definate staple of mine. I have been using it for over 6 months now and I only purchase it in the orange creamsicle scent.

AAAAAAAAAAMAZING!!!! I have a serious persperation problem, and no matter what I use, i stink. And I mean people comment on it. Even in my normal daily activities, by the end of the day I am showering for the second time. I also keep witch hazel pads in my purse for touch ups during the day to wipe the stench away. Well, no more!!! This is a god send and I can't say anything more than it truly works. I do not like the other scent tahitian breeze, it smells like patchouli. but this scent is so subtle and kills b.o. like no other. and i can wear it with black and no white marks!! LOVE IT! and their jaffa lip balm is wonderful as well :)

iF YOU HAVE ACNE, STAY AWAY FROM COCONUT OIL, EVEN IF ITS ORGANIC, VIRGIN, OR UNREFINED!!!! For about the first few weeks I used coconut oil, I saw improvements. My skin felt soft, moisturized and looked glossy and smooth. I noticed after about 2 weeks I started to break out. I had beard of a so called purging, so I continued to use it. Well after about 3 weeks of " purging", I had the worst acne! All over my back, chest, shoulders( where i do not ever break out), and of course, my face! It took me about 4 months to fully recover from all the cysts, pimples, marks and blackheads this left on me.

i have only tried this twice. i know that i can not write a review on its effectiveness, but i will say that it made my face red after use, and my skin stunk like sulfur until the following night. it dries quickly, so if you are using it as a wash, make sure your face is damp first. i dont see how a clay based cleanser that does not foam can remove dirt and makeup, so i am going to just use this as a mask every few days and a spot treatment overnight. if i see improvement, then i will start to use it as a cleanser again. i will update. i give moderate ratings now because of the natural ingredients and that it did not leave my face dry or itchy.

OMG, This stuff is so yummy!!! Just like orange juice with a bit of vanilla, and the ingredients are all organic and all natural. wish it were easier to find and obtain though. Also, I have super dry lips and wish it was a bit more moisturizing.
I have this in 3D, and I must say, it is extremely beautiful. Whenever I wear it, I always get compliments on both the color and my lips looking full and pouty. I love the pink sparkly glitter in it and it makes my lips look gorgeous! Lasted thru my sushi lunch even. Definite keeper.
This is a terrific product! Love the smell and it really gets any residue off from my cleanser and mask. Perfect product to use before I apply my moisturizer/treatment. I also use it on a cotton ball to wipe my cell phone clean because I know a dirty phone can cause breakouts......
I am in love with this cleanser! It is similar to their eucalyptus seafoam cleanser, but a million times better! I love the minty fresh smell and my face tingles after I use it!! This has amazing ingredients and has really made a difference in my skin. I use this along with the purity mask and spot treatment.
Skincare - Face -100 Percent Pure - Purity Spot treatment

This stuff is beyond amazing. I use this in conjunction with the 100% Pure Purity cleanser and mask and my skin looks the best it has in I can't remember how long. I am not completely clear, but enough to wear I do not have to feel like I need to wear makeup every time I leave the house. I love the smell and it feels super light on my skin, and moisturizing. It also helps with any redness I am having. I have been using this for about 6 months and have no plans of changing. My staple product, along with the rest of the purity line.
I absolutely love this scent, and so does everyone else who catches a wiff of it. kind of like a sultry vanilla/coconut suntan lotion scent, without the cheap smell. reminds me of spending the day on the beach on an exotic island :) i find it wears well. i can still smell it on my skin at the end of the day, easily. i have this and the grapefruit version. yummy
