My favorite tool of all time! It's so simple but completely brilliant. Cuts application time in half and gives me perfect results every time. I love this little thing and will be giving it as gifts from now on! :-) Don't hesitate to purchase this hot pink wonder.

I was so disappointed with the Pure Lux line, and had such high hopes after reading all the great reviews. In addition to looking like I am wearing an ashy, totally unnatural mask, I had an allergic reaction to something in the powder. I wear contacts, and very rarely does a product aggravate my eyes, but this was so bad I had to take my lenses out and had blood shot eyes the rest of the day. I decided to try using a power foundation b/c I have very oily skin, but after a couple hours the powder had melted off and I had obvious spots on my face wear there was no coverage. YUCK all the way around.

Finally, I've found a natural product that doesn't ruin my clothes and keeps me smelling good all day!!! Application is key as described by previous reviewer. Love it!
I really like this stuff and was surprised at how volumizing it is since other "comb" wands I've used never applied a decent amount of mascara. It doesn't clump, and applies quite evenly, also lasts all day/night without smudging and/or flaking. Also I don't have to use an eyelash comb after I apply this stuff. My only issue is that it's really hard to get the corners of my upper lids and all of my lower lashes b/c there isn't a "tip" of the wand that can be used for hard to reach spots. I'm going to purchase the lower lash small wand mascara by Bourjois to make up for that problem. In response to other reviewers, make sure you wipe off excess with a tissue *before* you try and apply, otherwise you will end up with way too much... as is the problem with most mascaras.

I have very oily skin and I have to say that I really like this stuff. I also have PPP complexion and this is the perfect shade. I've been using Clinique City Block which is SO greasy compared to this product. I'm definitely switching! EDIT: I stopped using this stuff b/c I couldn't handle the fragrance... it's too strong and made me feel ill whenever I applied it.

I got a sample from the drugstore and have only used it twice, but I really like it so far. It goes on easily, absorbs right away, and doesn't leave a sticky film. Hopefully this will even out my skin tones over time... I'll definitly keep using. EDIT: I stopped using this b/c of the overly strong fragrance.
Oh happiness! I love the deep cleansing oil but it's just too much oil for my overly greasey skin. When the whipped version came out I bought it right away... and I'm so glad I did! I use this followed by the Pure Soap at night and that's all I need. No toners, no moisterizers. Just clean, balanced skin. I'm thrilled!
I've had acne my whole life and nothing, including prescription creams, have been able to clear it up. I tried a sample and liked it so got the full size. I wasn't expecting any miracles, but by the end of the month my face was completely clear and has stayed that way 4 months later! My husband is now using it for his face too. I have very oily skin and don't have to use moisturizer so this soap is perfect for me. For people who complain about it drying out their skin, the product discription does say it is for oily skin types.
This is a great summer soap for scrubbing off sweat, sunscreen, dirt, and whatever else, without drying my skin out. I love how it lathers, rinses clean, and lasts a long time. Great product!
Love this stuff! It's the perfect balance between feeling squeeky clean and comfortably moisturized. I use it all winter b/c it keeps me from having ichy skin. The smell is wonderful! Since it's so cheap I wasn't expecting much, but wow, for the price you can't go wrong. Will keep using for sure.
Yuck. If you like feeling greasey after you shower then this stuff is great. The fragrance is a standard, generic, overly sweet perfume that doesn't do anything for me. The bottle is a pain to open, and the texture is kind of clumpy, not at all like "ribbons." Threw it out after a few uses.

I was gross halfway through the day! I really really really wanted this to work since I'm constantly trying to find something that keeps me dry, but this is worse than crappy drugstore brands I've bought. I sweated it all off and had to reapply more later in the day. I like the fragrance very much, but if it doesn't hold up than the scent really doesn't matter. Adidis sport clear gel is the best I've found so far.
For 22$ I was really disappointed with this product. It didn't lighten my skin but actually darkened it and made me look worse. I used about 75% of the container being hopeful but just gave up. Won't spend that kind of money on fade creams again. I would recommend Neutrogena Healthy Skin lotion.

Yuck! I looked orange! It was heavy alright, but looking like a clown isn't exactly what I had in mind. It comes in a measly three shades and an opaque tube so the color is deceiving. Greasy, greasy, greasy...
This is my very favorite lip gloss ever! I keep two tubes on me all the time. It's great b/c you can put it in your pocket for quick touch ups and don't need a mirror. This has the best staying power of all I have tried and isn't sticky or goopy. The taste and fragrance are a big plus too. It would be perfect if it had some sunscreen.
