This is a very basic cleanser. no bells or whistles. No lovely experience when you use it. This is a solid cleanser, but for the price I expected more. unimpressed. its a bummer. there isnt anything wrong with it , its just very very very simple. AND I would say it doesnt get off all my make up on the first go, and I dont even wear that much during the summer. a bit dissapointed.
Ok. let me just start by saying I have not wriiten a review in a long time. just didnt find the time, wasnt a priority- EXCEPT WHEN I BOUGHT THIS PRODUCT. Uh- this stuff is the best. not oily at all. just absolutely lovely- LOVELY, makes your skin feel and look amazing. I look forward to the whole "experience" of putting it on. its just great! I love it!!!! I mix it with myproctive repair moisturizer- thats right, super acne prone skin here, and this doesnt break me out. heaven in bottle. will always have on hand.
Treatments -Clinique - Pore Minimizer Refining Lotion

Ok- I have oily skin, and I am someone who has regular breakouts and never, NEVER leaves the house without foundation powder on due to my oilness and acnce scars. BUT I have two daughters who are watching my every move, and its come to my attention that I have to cut back on my makeup, big time, because I am giving them the wrong example of what beauty really is. SO i tired this hoping it would help me not to wear foundation and control oiliness. ITS AMAZING. my face is oil free for a good 9 hours. skin, super smooth, nice matt finish, which helps hide acne marks. I am at the end of week one of wearing no foundation. my two year old keeps touching my face. this stuff is great- I dont know about the pore minimizing quality, thats tough to guage, but my skin was matte all day and never looked better. well done Clinique!
THIS STUFF WORKS. This is the same as See Spots Run as well. Its holy Grail status for sure. I bought this over the summer when I was having a massive break out issues. MASSIVE! I tried anything and everything. This stuff started to show results in HOURS. not overnight, HOURS. LIKE IN 2 HOURS i SAW AN IMPROVEMENT! If you buy and acne treatment product, and even though this IS ridiculously expensive, BUY THIS ONE! because honestly if you find an acne treament that works really really well, does the price matter!
nothing special. I see no difference in this product and drug store conditioner, really. save your money and dont bother
I am on the fence regarding this product., I liked it, alot - I liked the experience of washing my hair. I have long hair, that is usually knarled, especially when I come in from running and its been in a pony tail. but this shampoo took the knots and knarls right out, no fuss no pain. felt great going through my hair. it rinses squiky clean. I mean really clean. and that can be good and bad. I would agree with another reviewer, this is probably best as a clarifying shampoo, but still a good one. will buy again I think, but use it as that.
I love this product. I love the experience of it. I look forward to taking off my makeup now. its super smoothing, and lovely on your skin, but most of all gets off every spec of dirt, makeup, what have you- off of your skin. I will definitely repurchase. no break outs (and I would have them, believe me). super pleased. UPDATE: oh good god, about a week in break out city, I think it even caused milia. what a mess. went right back! stear clear those of you with combo skin!
Tinted Moisturizer -E.L.F. - Shielding Hydro-Tint SPF 15 in Tone 1

I dont get it. I love this stuff. lasts all day, good coverage. i just put this on, dust with a little powder over it, better than my Stila tinted moisturizer. I am at a loss for the other bad reviews. Smells nice. I cant feel it all on my face. AND I am super picky. the packaging is crap. But other than that I will purchase again.
Foundations -E.L.F. - All Over Cover Stick in Fair

THis is tinted GLUE on a stick. impossible to blend, cakes on heavy, heavy feeling on face. horrible. I would rather take Elmers and put it on.
yes, but if you lable it Concealer....... isnt it supposed to conceal something..... anything? this conceals nothing. lasting power is non existent. I dont care how cheap it is, it will still wind up in your trash
I picked this up on a whim. it was literally $1. I was desperate for something at the tim, my Clarins lip brightner had just run out. I gotta say, its one of my favorite lip glosses. not sticky, nice subtle color, lasts pretty well. slightly drying by days end, but what gloss isnt. I ordered 5 more, all in the shade "flirt".
Hair -Wen by Chaz Dean - Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner

I had such high hopes for this product. But let me put this in a nutshell for you. Its bascially washing your hair with a conditioner. after day 2 your scalp is still so oily, not refreshed at all. Your hair is limp, finish is dull. My hair is not even difficult hair. I could use Pert and get a better result. Yuck. save your money, this is going right back
I hate to be the one bad review here, but I just didnt think it was that great. left a white cast in hair- after multiple tries to get it right, still left a white cast. doesnt really add volume, which is fine, and the freshning quality of the product is mediocre. smell is wonderful, but thats the only positive I could say.
Not that concealing. need I type more. Very soothing putting on, feels nice, does help a little with acne throughout the day. But the problem is I can still see my acne. Doesnt conceal anything. may feel nice, but it has to do more. awfully pricey too.
You know, I used to use this stuff 6 years ago, and then curiosity got the best of me and I started trying everything else. EVERY expensive department store lotion or moisturizer, and nothing has really done it for me. And a stumbled across an ad for this stuff, re-purchased, and now I am wondering why on earth I ever decided to stop using it. Just lovely, absorbs beautifully, skin super soft, and it has retinol, which is essential for changing the behavior of your skin. I am officially declaring this my HG!
