I have only found one place that sells this product, which is a bit frustrating because I love this. When I first saw the size of the bottle I was really worried that I wouldn't get many uses out of it and the price bothered me, too. The price is cheaper then other dry shampoos out there. I have gotten many uses from my first bottle. I was worried that I would have trouble with the product being white and I having dark hair, but I have had no trouble. I like how I have to barely press the nozzle to get the product onto my hair and I only need to use a few sprays. I have the type of hair that gets too oily after 24 hours and this product is great. It dries very quickly for me and as long as I brush it out well my hair looks how it looks once it dries after being washed. That's what really gets me and I love it.
Styling Products -TRESemme - Waterless Foam Shampoo for Dry/Curly to Normal Hair

I got this just in case I didn't like their dry shampoo. I don't like either. It doesn't make my hair do what it says on the bottle that it will do. I have tried using this, following the instructions closely, several times and each time I have ended up getting in the shower and just washing my hair. It's not for me.
What a disappointment. This product is too wet to be an effective dry shampoo. It takes longer then it should to dry and once it dries I can't get the white to fade. It ends up making my hair look worse. Save your money.
I decided to try this product because I was at my wits end dealing with my skin issues. I felt that I was following the correct guidelines for my skin type, but I wasn't getting the results I wanted. I kept hearing that I shouldn't use anything with mineral oil in it, but I finally got fed up and tried this. I woke up in the morning and was shocked to see that I finally didn't wake up to another new pimple. I used only this for awhile and was happy to be able to feel comfortable not wearing makeup. I have tried both the products with the light green lid and the darker green lid (has a cucumber on it). The cucumber one isn't greasy and looks and feels like a lotion. My skin prefers the greasier light green original one, as long as I remove it gently and don't press too hard trying to remove it completely.
I finally caved and decided to give MAC a try. I bought the powder in NC25. I didn't like how it sat on my face at first, but I used the face brush from Sonia Kashuk (white handle) and it was just too fluffy for this type of thing. Using that brush I didn't get good coverage or a good texture. I tried it again using a more dense brush from Ecotools and loved what I saw. This product is build-able and looks great once it settles down on my face. I was worried that I would hit pan pretty quickly, but it has been a few months and I'm still on my first compact.
This brush is a winner. It's soft and works great with both a powder and the tinted moisturizer spf 20 from ELF. I'm surprised I lived so long without one. The price is unbeatable for me.
I was worried when I saw this and thought that the product would have trouble coming out. I found that the pen didn't dry up during application, but the feel of it was just as you would guess (like a rough marker). I don't like the smell of this product once it dries.
Blush -Physicians Formula - Happy Booster™ Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Natural

I had heard before buying this product that this shade was pretty pigmented, but I still was skeptical. Looking at both shades at CVS I was tempted to go with the other shade, but decided to go with Natural instead. It shows up nicely on my NC25 complexion and provides a beautiful pink glow. I love the hearts and the smell reminds me of roses.
I was worried that I wouldn't get much use out of this product because I thought it would be too glittery and make me appear too shiny. This product provides a nice subtle glow that looks really pretty actually. The product is very cute and the scent isn't too strong, which I like.

This went on very easily because it is so greasy. The smell was a major disappointment. I would not recommend this to anyone.
Eyeliner -Rimmel - Glam Eyes Professional Liquid Liner

I would not recommend this product. The liner itself is too watery. The brush is very small. It removed easily with water. There are better liners out there.
I'm pleasantly surprised by this lipstick. A really pretty pink shade with a subtle gold color mixed within it. Smells like candy. Goes on smoothly. Not really long wearing. The tube up close isn't too bad being a dark purple , but from far away it's a bit ugly. I'll most likely repurchase. The only thing I really didn't like was that this product isn't sealed, so I would suggest checking the tube before putting it in your cart/basket.
I tried these products after having a bad experience with Proactiv. The lady at the counter decided to start me out on #4, but later I also tried #5 since it wasn't working. I don't remember it ever being drying. In the end, these products didn't work at all. The lady at the counter actually told me that there was a chance that it wouldn't even work. She ended up being right. Oh well.
I hated this. It made me more oily. The free mask that they gave me smelled terrible. The product smelled pretty bad, too. I remember becoming very red. When I cancelled my subscription the person was really rude. I used Proactiv for over a year and it didn't work at all. Not to mention that it's very expensive.

I use to use this on a daily basis and found that at first it cleared up my face better then other products that I had previously used, but I did find that on occasions that I had severe breakouts this did nothing to help reduce them quicker. I took a break and later tried to use it again and found that I was breaking out after using it. I made sure that it was actually this that was causing the breakouts and unfortunately found that if the product had been sitting around for a few months that if I used it, my skin went crazy afterwards. So I definitely learned a lesson there. The texture of the product itself was more coarse then fine and when massaging it on the face I had to be very, very gentle.
