The product is effective and such a steal. I'm a teen with combo skin- and it takes care of my dry cheeks and my oily T-Zone. My skin feels soft and clean after I use this and I notice my breakouts slowly disappear with each application. I wouldn't over-use it though, I use this product twice a weak because it really exfoliates my skin and anymore would be too much. This definitely keeps my breakouts/pimples under control and is the best drugstore scrub out there. I strongly suggest this. Plus, the smell is great.

I wasn't impressed with this moisturizer at all. I chose the lightest shade and it still was too dark. The coverage was low, it had too much of a yellow tone for my skin tone and it left my skin very oily. Wasn't impressed at all. On a side note, the bottle cap is also extremely annoying.

I'll be the first to admit that I am not a fan of Clean & Clear products in general. However, this facial scrub is nice. I love the smell, and it really wakes up my skin and makes it feel soft, refreshed, and alive! I love the beads. I usually use this when I first wake up and it's perfect to use before applying any makeup. I have combo skin- dry cheeks and an oily T Zone, but this cleanser doesn't seem to affect any of that. I've used this products for a couple months now and I'm not sure if it's actually preventing any breakouts of anything (I use several products in my routine)...but it sure does feel good!

When I first put this on, my skin felt amazing...but then came the aftermath. This product dried out my skin like you wouldn't believe. I will never use this product again, I don't know how they could release this.
Everytime I use this product, I break out. I don't know if this is true with all Cetaphil products, but this one is just not for me. I've stopped using it which is a shame because I bought the huge bottle. My skin is combination- an oily T-Zone and dry dry dry cheeks. The gentle cleanser seemed to exaggerate everything- making my cheeks even dryer and my T-zone more oily. I've decided not to try any other Cetaphil products in the future due to my horrible experience with this.
Not my favorite...I expected high quality, especially from Mally. I find the drugstore mascaras to be equal in quality. My eye lashed felt crusty & clump, and this product did not hold up on the volume guarantee. I asked people for their suggestions at school, and they didn't even realize I was wearing mascara. After that, I made an effort to coat it several times but now I have a completely different brand. I wouldn't buy this again
It smells like a picnic, that's the only way to describe it. I love the scent, and I have the body scrub to accompany the lotion. This & Sea Island Cotton are my favorite scents because it's such a unique, clean smell. Almost everyone I know loves it and when I got to school usually one or two people will make a comment. I convinced my teacher to get the body lotion and she loves it. It's truly perfect. I don't find it too strong, if you use it in moderation (1 or 2 sprays and you're set). I love the packaging. Bath & Body Works did a great job with this one...

It's a very fresh, clean scent.... but not like you were just rolling around in Tide. I love the smell, especially the body scrub in this scent. It's very addiction and makes you feel at ease. I'd suggest it to anyone.
I couldn't praise this product more. I'm 17, and I have a hellacious time matching my skin tone with the correct shade. The minute you put it on, it masks all your imperfections. It's crazy, really. I look like I have perfect, healthy skin. It's not streaky and I don't even realize I'm wearing it. It's light and airy- perfect for all ages but especially the teens/young adults out there! The coverage is high. It has a lot of power in a little bottle. My skin type is combo- dry cheeks and an oily T-Zone, and I often break out around my mouth. This foundation balances it, it doesn't dry out my checks and the area around my nose/mouth stays under control. I strongly suggest applying this product with a foundation brush-- not your hands! Also, make sure to apply a face primer before applying (this goes for any foundation). I've never had a foundation this PERFECT. I've gone through a lot of foundations but this one takes the cake. I have no complaints. None. Just get it already, I mean c'mmon. The coverage is mind-blowing. It looks natural and I always get compliments when I put it on. This summer I plan on getting a little tanner, so I hope to get a shade darker soon (as I am almost out of the one I have now!).
This mascara is very hard to wash off. Even when I wash my face, there tends to be blackness around my eye that I can't get rid of with a regular makeup remover wipe. I love the bottle and packaging- it looks great to the eye. The quality, however, isn't what I expected. I liked it better than the long line of mascaras I've had in the past, but I found this one clumpy and didn't separate my lashed. No very impressed, and I wouldn't get this one again. I would stay with Maybelline though.
