I really like this product.My dermatologist prescribed this for my acne and hyperpigmentation (dark spots). After a week of using this product, my skin was soft and smooth and my complexion looked more even for some reason. I have been using it for about 3.5 months now and my skin feels really nice after this. I don't know if this is causing it, but my t-zone is oilier than ever! I'll probably update as soon as I stop this and check to see if this is really the problem.This is really expensive for me. It costs $45 for this tube with my insurance. My derm. gave me a $10 off coupon, but I still think it's expensive. My hyperpigmentation has lightened a little bit, but I'm not very patient and ask my derm. to prescribe hydroquinone 4% and microdermabrasion once a month.
This is my HG foundation! Yes I admit that this foundation makes people break out and it gets super oily after a few hours. I use the shade "Natural Beige" which is perfect for my NC35-37 shade. I just put some of the Dream Matte Powder on after to hold the foundation and then I use my E.L.F. Makeup Setting Spray for extra hold. I also use the E.L.F. Flat Top Brush to apply this. I have to use blotting papers usually every three hours and that's because of my super oily skin. As long as it covers my hyperpigmentation, I don't have that big of a problem with this.
I bought this at Walmart because it was on clearance for $2. I figured what the hey? I tried this for a week and the first day it really impressed me. Although, my face was dry, it felt very clean (I wear full coverage foundation almost everyday). Then, the following days my t-zone started to get super oily twenty minutes after application. The astringent was the only thing I changed in my routine so it had to be the cause of my face turning into a frying pan. I'm going to keep using it though because it still takes off all my makeup. I'll update if things start to look a little better.
I don't what is wrong with you people for wanting to buy this product again! What kind of a dumbass makes a product with the most difficult application? Also, I can't find my shade in this foundation (I'm a NC 35-37). Warm Golden is too light for me while Golden Beige is a little better but still lighter. This stuff is also a pain to take off your face. It says Colorstay and it really means because it stays on all my brushes even after 20 minutes of vigourous rubbing. It's hard to get it off your fingers too, so don't use your fingers to apply it. Use a sponge and you will be happier! Also, what kind of a dumbass doesn't put a damn pump on a "Colorstay (stays on clothes, fingers, brushes, etc.)" foundation? I should do a "What kind of a dumbass..." segment on here. That was kind of fun. Lol :P But I seriously want to find the person that made this product and burn them alive.
Covers dark circles really well. I usually dab on my e.l.f. mineral foundation over this concealer, that way it stays and blends in with my skin. I have a lot of dark spots (from acne :( ) and this doesn't cover them too well. It has spf 20, though which is always a plus for me. Oh and another bad thing, it has sparkles!!!! That's the only reason I would never buy thing product again.

I love this! This is the first time I've ever used a leave-in conditioner and I'm so glad I did! Before I started using this, my hair was wavy and frizzy and all over the place, but as soon as I started wearing this leave-in conditioner, my hair was straight, smooth, and not at all frizzy (and I live in a very dry climate where there's winter in May!). I section my hair in two and I use the conditioner on one side first and then the other so that I can get the conditioner everywhere on my ends.
