oh my god! i think i am in love. i just recently bought the whole ultra calming kit because it was recomended to me by my pharmcist. everytime i would wash my face or take a shower my face wouldcomeout looking like a tomato! now i use the cleanser when washing my face, then the mist, and i think those both help calm my skin a little but the real miracle is the ultra calming serum. i just put this on my face after i was my face and within minutes my face is no longer red! an that is amazing because my face is always red because i use the diffrin/ aczone gel for my acne and my face is super sensitized and red all the time. it normally takes my face ten or twenty minutes to return to a somewhat normal color after shower. i use this in conjuction with the barrier repair. i will use the calming serum every other day and on the day that i dont uses the serum i use the barrier repair, just because i dont want o uses either up to quickly because the cost is quite steep. my acne is also less noticeable. this product is not made to fight acne but my pimples are still there but much less inflamed, so i look like i have clearer skin! and some of the dark marks i have from pevious breakouts are starting to fade! i am so happy with my skin right now its not even funny.go get this now! even if you cant afford the all of the stuuf, they have small kit that contains all of the items and it is 40$ or just go buy the serum and work it into your daily regimine, you wont be sorry. but what i dont understand is that there are so few reviews for this, its great!
this is an interesting product. i have never come acrosss something to similar to it before. this product is very versitile and can be used as more than a facial cleanser. i bought this the other night and i was so exited i practically ran into my bathroom to use it! and i found that the result was kinda cool. it was a bit greasy but after i used it i used another bar to cleanse my face a little more (dove bar- sensitvie skin) and once i dried my face off my skin was very very moisturized. i didnt even need to put any lotion on as i normally do after washing my face. i just went stright to bed. when i woke up the next morning my face was a little shiney so i would use this as a night time cleanser. but it works really well and i will probably be using once or twice a week now to help keep my skin nice and hydrated. i dont think its something one should use evry night unless u have seveerly dry skin. this product also takes makup off quiet nicely so thats a big plus. any of you that are considering buying this or do and ahve stoped using it, try what i did and u may find yoursef liking ultra blend more than u did befor or by any other method because i noticed some were saying it was to greasy. and if you are not the person whowants to use two cleansers in a row try using a tiny bit of this or cleaning some of this off with a toner after us eing ( try lush tea tree toner)

the first time i used this i steped out of the shower and my skin felt really clean and soft, the next day i woke up and my whole face looked like it was peeling off! i chanced using it one more time and my skin just ended up looking very red and peely. lets just say this stuff belongs in a garbage rather than on your face.

this is a really good gentel cleanser. i found this at target when i was purchasing the soothing cucumber wipes when i stumbled apon this cleanser. i have always had very sensitive skin, and the only cleanser my skin whould tollerate was the unsented, sensitve skin, dove bar- which is really good if u have sensitive skin like me btw, but it was a bit hydrating- anyway i was skeptical trying this but the wipes didnt make my skin rear it ugly head so i decided to give it a go. turns out i really like it, i only gave it four lippies because i dont know if there is anything better or not,but yeah at first it dried me out a litle bit but as i kept using it my skin adjusted and now ts really smooth. it evn dried up some of my acne,my skin is much clearer now than it used to be, and let me add in the best shape than it has been in a long time. the consistancy is a little runny but that doesnt really influence the way it works, for those of you that are familiar with cucumbers when you cut into them the extra juice has a similar texture. it does have a bit of fragrance very fresh, cucumbery, but also somewhat strong so if u are super sensitve to fragrance beware. the price was bit expensive for a super market cleanser (14$) but im guessing because it natural, and hey it works so i have no problem spending the money. the packaging is fine i really honestly dont care what the package looks like, what matters is whats on the inside (that goes for people to, folks)but its ur basic squeeze tube, pop top, nothing to crazy but practical. overall.. go buy this product now! ***update**** ok everyone, this is still a great product that i like but i did take a lippy off because after some time it became to drying for me and i went back to the dove bar. But if you have slightly oily or combo skin this could be good for you. and it still may be nice in the summer for those of you with dryer skin because i really wiskes away the oil and sweat from the heat. its not my HG, but definetly a good choice. oh, and also the tube lasts for about 2 months depending on how much u use. i used a quarter/nickle sized squirt twice a day. not sure if im buying this agin or not. ill say yes on the question up there because i want this product to get altest one or two good reviews and who knows? i may end up going back to it in the hotter months

this product is awful! i tried it on a whim because it was on sale at target (that should have been my first indacator, because it was only on sale because nobody wanted to buy it!). Anyway i got home and instantly decide to try it,i was very exited might i add, and its not all bad the spray didnt smell to terrible but it did overpower my bathroom. so i applicated it all over myself and at first it looked nice once it dried. the next morning i woke up and i was orange! i had to go to school for 2weeks in the summer wearing long sleeves and jeans-mind you i live in the south it get quiet hot, like 95,100 degrees hot. neadless to say i was sweating like a pig. my buddy evn said i need to be miss florida because my skin was the color of the florida orange. dont ever purchase this

i bought this hairdryer a couple months ago and its awsome. i love how you also get two diffusers when you purchase this dryer. i have learned the importance of diffusers since i bought this dryer! its a good price for what you get and i know the drying isnt top of the line like a chi but who need one when you arnt a hairdresser and is not using it every moment of the day? this one its good for the price like i said and has many settings. very decent

Wonderful! i recently received this in a package deal with bare minerals, i really only bought it because i wanted to try the mineral foundation, but at ulta they we offering a deal were you recive the mineral foundation, mineral veil, gloss, and mascara and i was curious. i didnt really expect the mascara to be very good considering the lip gloss isnt my favorite.It turns out that i absolutly love it! i have a number of mascaras and normally use the two faced lash gasm and it was pretty good, until i found this one. so now in the mornings in am finding this my go to eye product.:)
I want to like this product. When i first started using it i loved it, made my skin soft and hydrated, and since i have a few blackheads on my chin area i thought i worked nicely. But after the second or third day it started making my face really oily and over moisturized and my few acne spots were really starting to stand out. i think this may work okay for a person who has dry skin and is in need for a moisturizing exfoliant because it does exfoilate rather nicely, just VERY hydrating.since my skin is on the oily/ combination side i wasnt for me.

i really like these wipes. I use them at night to take my makeup off if i am to lazy to wash my face with my cleanser,i dont normally wear any eye makeup so i dont know how they work there. But they work well to take all my foundation off and dont irritate my skin.I also use them after i workout and they leave my face feeling refreshed, plus removing all the sweat and grime.
