This was awful! I read such great reviews on this product and was so hopeful only to be disappointed by the greasy film it left on my face. It look okay, minus the gray cast, for about two hours and then felt nasty and oily on my face. My quest for a good bb cream continues. Oh, and I did I mention this bb cream left me with 4 new zits and I rarely break out anymore???
This is another holy grail item for me!! I thought I would never stop using DDF Lite Moisturzing Dew, but this is even better! I have sensitive, oily, acne prone skin-lucky me!!

This is an amazing product-I have tried numerous primers from other brands... Bare Escentuals Oil Control Smashbox Lorac Murad Givenchy Sephora Makeup Forever Benefit Laura Mercier Lorac Clinique NONE of them hold a candle to this primer! This primer helps makeup stay put and doesn't break me out. LOVE!!
This product is seriously holy grail! I have tried ALL different kinds of foundation-lancome teinte idole, estee lauder double wear and double matte, clinique truly matte, makeup forever high def and velvet matte, revlon colorstay, clarins evermatte, givenchy photo perfection, yves st laurent Teint resist, Laura Mercier oil free, and probably others I can't remember. This foundation doesn't break me out, which is by far most important, and also stays put! It stayed on in 100 degree weather and is by far superior to any other foundation I have used. For the price and convenience of being able to buy this almost anywhere, this is an amazing product! If they discontinue, I will seriously be devasted.

I had the PTR sample pack and after using this moisturizer, I decided I love it! It's a little heavy, so I only use it at night, but my skin is so much calmer when I wake in the morning. I tried the Kinerase Clear Skin Light briefly, but came back to this. I have been using for about 9 months and plan to stick with it. Great stuff!!

I had two samples of this and loved it. However, when I sprung for the large bottle ($75!), after about a week, it started breaking me out. I was SO disappointed. It went back to Sephora and I went back to my PTR Oil Free Moisturizer, which I love and is about $33 cheaper.
I was so hopeful that this product would work for me, but it was horrible! I broke out in cystic acne and looked worse than I did before I started using the stuff! Why do they put oil in the product if it's meant for acne-prone people? I was so disappointed in this product and the whole Outer Peace line...Aveda's hair care is much better!

OMG! I tried Bare Minerals and it broke me out, but this makeup is my holy grail! I have oily, acne-prone skin with hyperpigmentation and scars. It is so hard for me to find a makeup that does not break me out and that will not face or rub off before the end of the day. I was so pleasantly surprised at the quality of this makeup!!! It is better than the Double Wear I have used for the last five years and I think it's keeping me from breaking out. It stays put ALL day long and looks beautiful, natural and not cakey. I will be ordering much more of this in the future! Go online and order a sample kit! You get 3 samples of foundation in colors that you get to select and a sample of blush, as well. You get to pick that color, too. The kit is free-you just pay the $4.00 for shipping! The kit has lasted me several days and I can tell that the kit will last me at least another week or two. Wonderful, fabulous makeup!!
I got a free sample of this product from Walgreens and as skeptical as I sometimes am of drugstore products, I have to say that I absolutely love this product! It smells great, makes my ruddy, acne-prone skin look glowing and beautiful, and does not feel heavy on my oily skin. In fact, it is a great base for my makeup and so far, has not broken me out, which is so hard for me to find. I use this under my moisturizer at night and by itself under makeup during the day. Fabulous! Better than higher priced department store products I have tried. I will update if this breaks me out or I decide that I don't like it. *****This started breaking me out and I had to stop using it. Boo!!

This is awesome! I have flat, thin hair and this held up my hair amidst the humidity of the Florida sun on a recent trip to Disney World. This is better than some of the salon brands I have tried in the past. Excellent!!!
After reading the reviews on here, I decided to give this shampoo (and conditioner) a try. I absolutely love it! I have fine, thin, highlighted hair and this product gives me shine and body, something I have yet to find in other shampoos. The conditioner is wonderful, too, and doesn't weigh my hair down and leaves it tangle-free and shiny. I have used salon products and paid 10 times the price of this shampoo and I like this shampoo soooo much better. How would have thought a miracle could come in a bottle and for just $1?

This product is wonderful. I have fine, thin hair and it gives it so much body and shine. I have used other shampoos (some salon brands) and have yet to find something I like so much! It doesn't fade my blonde highlights, either. The conditioner does a great job, too, and leaves my hair tangle-free and shiny without being weighed down. I highly recommend this shampoo to anyone looking a for a fabulous and inexpensive shampoo.
This product is AWESOME!! I received this as a gift from a friend and it leaves my skin feeling so soft. The smell is wonderful and it revitalizes me! I definitely recommend this product...everyone needs to have this in their shower!!!
I have a friend who sells Arbonne, so I thought I'd try this foundation. I have very oily, acne prone skin and this foundation just didn't cut it. At first, I thought it looked okay, but the coverage was moderate, not enough for me, and after an hour of wear, I had an oily sheen across my face, accenting the very flaws I was trying to cover up! The color was too dark-I ordered the lightest color they offer. I am back to using my HG, Estee Lauder Double Wear, which is great for people looking for full, lasting coverage. I think this foundation would be good for people with drier skin, those not needing too much coverage.

I bought this product after reading the great reviews written. I ordered the sample kit in hopes that it might give me the great results that I read about. However, it did not give me the coverage I need (I have acne-prone, oily skin). Also, by the end of the day, it completely wore off! I am so glad I tried this on my day off from work...I will stick with my Estee Lauder Double Wear, which is what I always go back to. It gives great, lasting coverage without breaking me out.
