I'm oily skinned and I probably shouldn't have bought this product because of that, but I wanted to give it a shot. It doesn't make me oily,which is amazing cuz it's a glow. I had nothing to lose, it was 4.97 at Walmart.Why not? It's pretty moisturizing, but there's glitter in it. Little sparkles, like you can't even see it unless you're staring at your face. That's not really my cup of tea, but I like the moisturizer it's self. I wouldn't repurchase this, but someone with normal skin that likes the illuminating look to it, probably should.
This is my first bottle, I think it's more SPF than moisturizer. I'm oily skinned, but it's not hydrating enough for me if that makes sense. So when I use this, I still use have to use another moisturizer to satisfy me. It doesn't sink it fast enough for me. Overall, I like this product but I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it again. If I were desperate, this would be the second thing I grab for SPF. $13.97 at Walmart, I think the price is a little too high for what it is, I would reach for Neutrogena's before this one.

This stuff is FABULOUS! I've been using this for as long as I can remember, then one day I was like why am I using salicylic acid everyday? That can't be good. So I went on a massive hunt and tried everything from Olay, St.Ives, Boscia, Murad... and now I'm back to Biore, nothing finishes my face off like this cleanser does. I absolutely love it, and after I'm done with all of these reject cleansers, I'm going back to this, and never changing AGAIN!

I love, love, love this stuff, but I cannot find myself paying $26 that's a bit much for a cleanser every month. I love how it makes my skin feel, squeaky clean. Feels refreshed, I really like foam and how one squirt is good enough for the face/neck. It's perfect. If anyone knows of an alternative(pretty sure we won't find one THAT similar cuz it's patented) to this please let me know!!!

I actually liked this. I thought about getting the matte one, "De Slick" but I decided to try this one first and see how it goes. I actually really like that it gives me the dewy finish but doesn't allow me to get oily. I'm typically an oily stick who probably should've gotten the "de slick" but next time I will. I don't like Model In A Bottle, mac fix+, Make Up Forever, Mehron, Graftobian... but I like this one :)

My friend from Make-Up School was raving to me how amazing this is, only ONE make-up distributor is fully stocked on this in San Diego. I got one, and I tried spraying it. It was completely empty so I brought it back and told her and she said wow, this is the third bottle from Model In A Bottle sent to us that was empty. Not a drip in sight. But she gave me a new one. I tried it, it smells like musk perfume. The bottle squirts all stupid. Some part will come out really straight and not misty so it evenly distrubites the face. It squirts right to my eyelash and makes it a little loose. Ughhh that always gets me. So I put it in a U.D Setting Spray bottle so it sprays normally, I didn't see anything too amazing about it. I don't think it helps mattify at all. I don't care too much about it, I wouldn't purchase it again. I'd rather by U.D or Make-Up Forever's... pretty bottle, though.

I have so much back stock on Mr. Pumice. Their the best!! It's a staple in my life! My boyfriend calls it my sandpaper. Great if you wear sandals a lot because even if you shower and scrub your feet, it won't get all that dust from the floor on your feet off. Sounds really terrible, but wearing sandals all day, and then showering at the end of the night, you can see the dirt washing off your feet. LOL! I know, TMI but it's better than having it still on your feet, now that's gross. I never skip this step in my shower :) I loveeee it and I love that they come in so many different colors.
I like this Lip Balm, because of the tingly sensation it gives, but I don't think it really does anything for moisturizing. As soon as the tingly stops, it just sits there. I like Chap Stick Medicated here. There's a big price difference between the two because you always need more than 2 around. They always go missing ha ha.

It definitely soaks up the oil in your face, but it also messes up your make-up. I just use End Wraps instead. Their cheaper & don't disturb make-up application.

This moisturizer is completely useless. It doesn't do anything. It's easy to work in, but it doesn't absorb. I feel like it sits on top of the skin. Meh. I would never buy this again. I hate the 3 step. Plus, the pump broke.

As for Primers, I hate everything on the market except for Spackle and Too Faced Primed & Pore less.I have oily skin. I decided to try this, because I had nothing to lose.I liked it for the first two days, then I was like oh no. Then I looked like I was bathing in canola oil for the past 3 days. I love the consistency, I love the way it absorbs fast, but not good for my skin type. I will be back to using Too Faced.
I never noticed this one until yesterday. It definitely looks like something I would wear. It is really bright, vibrant burgundy pink color. It's beautiful but it is bright for an everyday blush or I would wear very little of it. I would wear it out at night or to contour with a lighter color. I'm glad I bought it, good to have.
California Raspberry use to be my signature go-to color. I've found that when I first buy the bottle it's more pink than red, and as time goes, and it oxidizes it turns more red, and I don't like that. I've taken more pink and dripped it in there, any the next time, still gets red. I don't like the red against my skin tone so yeah. I love the Raspberry color, hopefully OPI makes another Raspberry color.
I looooves it, and I can't seem to replace it with ANYTHING. It came out last summer, and it's already a drip away from being done!! A DRIP! Bring it back, please, please, please.
This is definitely one of my go-to's. It's bright, pretty, girly, and very low on the shimmer. It's perfect,I get so many compliments on this color. This was from the Espana collection right? I think so, I forget sometimes, but it's one of my favorites and I hope they don't discontinue it, I'm going to be very sad.
