Waste of money. You get what you pay for. My stretch marks are very light and small I used this for weeks and saw no difference. Nice lotion but don't expect results.

It smelled nice but I saw no difference. I just had my second baby 7 months ago. My stretch marks are not bad they are white and very low on my abdomen and back. I used this twice a day for a month and saw no difference at all.
Primer/ Corrector -Clinique - Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector

I received this product as a sample and used it but didn't really notice a difference well I found out I was applying it wrong. I recommend putting it over your makeup and then going over it with a cotton ball this helps blend it into those pores. I like it and I use it when I go out.
I wanted to like this product because I have seen it everywhere for years. I gave it a couple of tries thinking I didn't give it enough time. I used it for over a month. It did nothing but make my skin worse and oily. Did nothing to prevent acne. I found the steps to be way too much and looked horrible under make-up.
Lip Treatments -Fusion Beauty - LipFusion Lip Plumping Gloss

What a total waste of money. For me after I applied it for the first week I could feel it tingling my lips so assumed it was working. I noticed my lips to be slightly plumper for about an hour. After I used it for about a week the tingling stopped. Didn't work for me at all. What a waste!
This stuff stinks to bad you can't go anywhere after putting it on. I certainly can't use it as a daily moisturizer because of the smell. I noticed streaks from it near my ankles and feet. I wasn't that impressed it took a while to develop even a little color.
Love it love it love it!!!! I had very blonde highlighed hair and I just had a baby in Oct. and my hair has started falling out. I didn't want to keep highlighting and damaging my hair anymore and didn't want to completely dye it but I had so many roots. My sister introduced me to this product and I started using it a couple of times a week for 5 min. each time and it transformed my once blonde hair into brown hair. I love it. The old blonde highlights turned light brown and made my hair color blend. I started using this a couple of months ago and since then I had my hair designer dye my hair backto my natural color because I loved the brown so much. She said that I did all the dirty work for her. Now I only use it about once a week to refresh my color. You do have to rinse it off your hands I found that MUAC green tea soap works great to get it off your hands. It isn't too heavy either and I have very fine straight hair.
I like the coverage but it makes my face breakout. I also have to use an shine control moisturizer before using it or it makes me shine. I do like the coverage though I just wish I didn't get little whiteheads from it.
What a waste of money. I thought this product was going to work miracles. I have been doing Peels on my face and have past scars from acne that are starting to fade. I was hoping that this would help cover up some of the scars and it doesn't cover at all. It makes my skin shine and look very oily! Throughout the day the color also darkens and makes my skin look orange. Yes it has a soft feel to it but for the money I was expecting a lot more. For a foundation I was very disappointed with the coverage. I get better coverage from Clinique dual face powder.
I discovered this product 4 years ago after I had my first son and I used it for about 6 weeks for my stretch marks. It did work. I could see the difference in about a week. I then tried to use it on my face because at this time they had "just discovered" that it works for wrinkles. My face broke out everywhere. I had these tiny little bumps all over my forehead. I also tried using it on a sun spot and a couple old acne scars and it made them darker and worse. I just had my second baby and yes the stretch marks are back. I used an entire tube and didn't notice much of a difference this time. IMy stretch marks are white and I used topicals the entire time I was pregnant. I think this product has been talked about way toooo much. The advertising did it for me. I am wondering where the women are that said this is better than botox???
Self Tanners -St.Tropez - Tinted Self-Tanning Lotion

I also really wanted to like this product. I am 30 and just had my second baby a few months ago. The reason I bought this product is that I had read it covers stretch marks. I have white ones on my lower belly and am going on vacation in a month. The first night I used this stuff it stunk up my entire bedroom! My husband even said "that stuff stinks". Anyway the next morning in the shower I watched it wash off and I wasn't that impressed. I used again a second night and the next morning after another shower I was more impressed. It did cover my stretch marks. I lotioned up and exfoliated before using this product and I still could tell on my feet that this is a self tanner. I am new to self tanning. I have used tanning beds in the past and don't want to ruin my skin. I think I am going to try other products. I don't think it did the job for the money.
I kept using this product thinking I didn't give it enough time. I used for over a month and did nothing to my skin. It felt clean afterwards but did not do anything to any acne marks that I have on my face. I have a couple red marks from recent breakouts but I still have them. What a waste of money.
I thought I had finally found something for my skin that has occational breakouts. I am 30 and starting to worry about wrinkles as well. I used it for a few weeks. It made my skin breakout terrible. I had zits all over my forehead which is a place that I never breakout. I am prone to chin breakouts. I let my skin rest for a few weeks and tried it again still breakouts everywhere. I even had to go the the dermotolgist to get some topicals to treat the acne from this terrible product. I hated it.
Powder -Bare Escentuals - Bare Minerals Foundation #3

Messy!I found this product to me messy to apply. Every time I use it I get it all over the place. It also makes your fine lines more visible and throughout the day it makes your skin look greasy.
I liked the coverage but the process of using the bare escentuals line is sooo messy! I hated all the different mixing jars my sink was always dirty after using this product. Also the makeup looked great right after you put it on but hours later my skin looked so greasy.
