I loved everything about this foundation....but it makes me break out. If you're an oily girl without acne, please give this a try. I would make this my HG foundation if it didn't give me acne =(
I'm so upset I can't find my receipt for this. =( Pros- - I like the tube Cons - - Palest color is too dark - Kinda like trying to slather cement on your face, it doesn't glide - It doesn't cover better than my MAC Studio Fix - After about 5 hours, I'm an oily mess....and let me tell you and thick makeup on top of oily skin....it looks so gross. My face looks wet! - It makes my pores and acne scars look GIANT! Like REALLY GIANT and NOTICEABLE! I honestly wish I could take this back, it's everything I don't want in a foundation. =( I'm going to try and make it work but this stuff...YUCK! I don't know how this stuff is still around, I've tried drugstore products better than this stuff.

Works for me. I see a lot of negative reviews but this is the only face primer I can find that doesn't break me out and it's helps my foundation (usually Studio Fix Fluid) last. Maybe it just really works well with MAC Studio Fix Fluid and not other foundations, I don't know. I would repurchase again. Just for reference I have super oily skin and I put on about a dime amount.
I bought this because I have eczema and have heard great things about this product. Only for me, I didn't like it. I did not like the smell at all. This also way to thick for me, I felt I had to use so much on my body, if I used this everyday I could easily use up the tub in less than a month. I much prefer charity pot over this. I will continue to try some other LUSH lotions, this was just a thumbs down for me. Also, it didn't help my eczema, I ended up having to use my reg. prescription.
This is my second pot of LUSH's Charity Pot. I prefer this over their Dream Cream. It smells like dark chocolate and shea butter. It's strong and lingers but I love that. The proceeds of this purchase goes to charity, which makes the steep price seem worth it.
HMMM! This smells wonderful! I enjoy this in the shower. I ordered this online and was fearful because I hadn't smelled it person. I picked one out to try based on the ingredients and discription. BOY, was I surprised and so glad that I turned out to love this. It smells like Winne-the-Pooh bear's honey pot mixed with Jasmine. It's a honey sweet smell, not a sugary candy sweet, so I do consider it a more mature smell. I wish I would have ordered a larger size but I wanted to play it save and I order the 3.3oz for $9.95. I will defiantly order this in the future. 3.3oz = $3.02 an oz 8.4oz = $2.26 an oz 16.9oz = $1.71 an oz

I have oily skin, that acne prone. I wear a liquid foundation everyday. I have never had a cleanser clean my face like this one! It removed my mascara and foundation like a dream. I cleanse it twice, once to remove my makeup and again, to clear my pores. The smell is horrible but you get used to it.
First bought this when I was 14 and now, I'm in my early 20's still buying it. HG for my NC15 skin. Even my mother, who never really likes my choice in colors, considering she's an NC42, loved this as well. Perfect color and I've never found anything to replace it.
I love this product. I apply liquid foundation, MAC powder and then this. It makes my skin look as flawless as it can possibly get and keep my oil under control without looking caked on. I have so many steps because of my moderate to severe acne. This is great stuff. Also, no ashy effect, which i know is a problem for people especially when taking photos.

I have super oily skin that is acne-prone and still likes to get dry patches from time to time. This offered no coverage for my acne spots and then accentuated any dry patches I have. It did keep me from becoming shiny but my MAC powder and Rice powder keep my oily at bay much longer.
Perfect for under eye circles. Doesn't cake up on any of my fine lines and covers my dark circles, perfectly. Has a nice creamy texture and I love the packaging. I don't apply this to acne marks, instead I use a MAC concealer. I choose this for under my eyes because I have trouble with the MAC Concealer caking up in my fine lines and I find it too drying for the eye area. I also find this concealer long lasting, considering I have oily skin. Very impressed it last me all day without touch ups - once I set it along with my foundation with a little powder.

I used to love this product...I'm so sad the reformulated this. =( I found one at a CCO and it worked GREAT! Bought at a MAC counter and it's defiantly NOT the same product. The redid the formula and the new one sucks. My face looked greasy just applying it and didn't do anything but sit on top of my face. Horrible for oily girls.

I really wanted to like this but sadly it breaks me out .If felt so nice on the skin but I put it on and woke up with huge whiteheads on my cheeks. It's a shame. =(
I love Rose!!!!!!!!!! But this stuff....yuck! Smells like a mix of rose and cat pee.

Cute packaging but the product sucks. It's expensive and broke me out! I felt it never melted into my skin but just kinda sat on top and clogging my pores. Each time I try it, I end up with whiteheads. yuck!
