I bought this today on a whim, and briefly checked my MUA on my phone for any reviews and once i saw a 4.4 rating i figured it was worth the try. after all it was only $9 bucks. i used it right after getting my hair done, so my forehead was oily, so was my nose. it matted me out and kept my makeup looking fresh. so far i am excited about this powder, i gave it a 4 because of the weird pad on the inside (the thot of it continually soaking up my facial oil, nd me reapply that to my face grosses me out. lol) i will have to use my retractable kabuki for it.
I love this chapstick. I am on Retin A and my lips become so rough with tiny rashes when i am on Retin A. I have found that this Chapstick is the only thing that will heal and soothe my lips. i have tons of lipglosses and lipbalms that i use and i would often toss this aside but for now it is my HG lip balm. i just love the way it feels i wish they would reconsider the packaging. it would be more hygienic if it was in a squeeze tube like the "Chapstick Overnight"
I really wanted to like this product, but it burnt the sides of my face. Now this could be because of a number of things: 1). I am on Retin-A right now 2). I also just started using the Obaji clenziderm for normal to oily skin. I bought the OOO night cream because i was flaking seriously, the weather is getting colder and dryer and i just thot it would be an awesome night regimen. I am sure it is a good product, but just not for me.
i just recently started using jojoba oil and i have to say i am really impressed. I have oily acne prone skin and had heard jojoba oil was really good for my type of skin. Jojoba oil is a more of a wax and is very close to the composition of the sebum produced by your pores. So aside from having really great antioxidant properties, it also has this homeopathic effect in that, when u put it on ur face, ur pores recognize it as sebum so they don't produce any more oil. It is really inexpensive and u can find it at any whole foods store or on acne.org. I buy the one packaged in a glass bottle because i think it is better packaging hence great for the environment. its about $6.99
