average gel cleanser.
Hands down the most moisturizing lip product I have ever used. Way better than the non-pigmented lip balms! They feel buttery and rich, last a loooong time, and look juicy! *Honeysuckle- Nude, amazing! (slight orange undertone and lighter than caramel daisey) *Tiger Lily- Secod best!! peach nude *Hibiscus- medium orange pink *Pink Blossom- BEST! pretty candy pink, smells like bubblegum *Rose- sheer light red, smells like red licorice *Red Dahlia- sheer dark red New collection: (no smell, and more sheer) *Petunia- light pink, almost nude (unfortunatly), no smell. I really thought this was going to be a pretty pink, but it too light and washes out my face!! *Caramel Daisey- true medium brown, no undertone like honeysuckle *Sweet Violet- a bright medium purpelish pink My favorite are pink blossom, honey suckle, and tiger lily. Red dahlia would look good on anyone, hibiscus would look good on medium skin tones, and rose I just dont like on my light skin tone, too bright of red. Just bought caramel daisey and sweet violet, I love them! They both look amazing on my skin tone and probably any other!!

When I applied this it felt dry and cakey and did not feel hydrated at all. However I use the acne solutions lotion which also feels that way so maybe if I use less it would work better.

It is too thin and dries too fast. You cannot keep up with keeping it on so you dont see any improvement.
I love this, I have the one in the purple bottle. I use "milks" as toners since I have dry skin. And they do a good job of plumping the skin, which lasts more if done by a thinner item and then seal with a thicker cream. It does help, but I cant afford to buy DHC anymore :(
This cream is not as moisturizing as extra night time moisturizer, but it is gentle and nourishing. Its a great everyday cream with a little extra care. I would repurchase when I can afford it again.
This is an oily but not too oily balm that really moisturizes and keeps your face plump till the morning! I love it and will repurchase whenever I can afford it again!
This really plumps and brightens my face. It is a great moisturizer and vitalizer. Definatly gives results!!!

This is a very strong acidic cleanser. However for those who have extremely rough skin like me, using this on the face and body whenever we need to makes it work wonderful. It has Salycilic acid and Glycolic acid, therefore it works great for less. But, use sparingly, and if you are sensetive, use very sparingly. Great for body too! This is exactly what MY skin needs. It helps me reduce the use of my CURE Natural Aqua Gel exfoliator which is $40 a bottle, so this is great. Im surprized an american product works so well. (I rarely use american products because the FDA regulations cause us to fall ten years behind asia and europe.) But Im glad I was risky and tried this!
This is a very think, very long lasting lip balm. I would not say it actually moisturizes, it stays on top of lips and protects them. This is good when going out in the extreme cold, or doing sports or other activities where you cant reapply (like working in a hospital!!). Cause its probably the only thing that will stay completely on the entire time. So I was running all over walmart trying to find lanolin and all this time it was hidden under a different name in the baby section: Nipple Cream haha! I have not tried it on my nipples because I havent had a baby yet :( so I dont know how it works for that but Id imagine it would be very uncomfortable and sticky agains your bra haha! and no one would ever rebuy it, it will last like 7 years!!

This is great to mattify and is better than normal powders but still not dry skin friendly.
I only swatched this on my hand then dabbed it on my lip to see the color. I want to say that this may not work for lighter skinned women. It is an opaque orangy brown color that just didnt enhance my beauty. But I think it would be great for darker women. The gloss itself is a great formula cause I have other colors I love.
My favorite lipgloss, its a neutral natural brown pink color that is a little shimmery. It is a great consistency that is not too thin or sticky, and it stays on for hours. the ginger smell is really mild I can barely notice it. It reallly looks good on and is perfect when doing an Arab beauty look or smokey eyes. It is natural enough to wear anytime. And the most beautiful color and shimmer to enhance the beauty of lips. AND best of all its not harmful to our health. I dont have to worry what Im putting on my lips. The package is actually nice cause you can squeeze some out if you want a lot or apply with the wand for controlled amount.

Full of unhealthy ingredients, stung my lips, did not feel that great, color was cheap.
***These are similar to my favorite Lavera lip balm in that you have to use it a few times before it starts to be amazing. I guess the top is too smooth to rub off well and after a few days its AMAZING!*** I got the color Love Bird. It is a nudish mauvish pink. Which looks great on my light olive skin. Its a great nude or natural color. It feels incredibly soft and addictive, its like a buttery collageny plump feel. I love these because they are not over pigmented so I dont end up looking like a clown or whore no matter how much I want to wear ;P LOL I have dry lips and have to try not to look like a clown with some other products, so I LOVE these! and they do have enough color to look great!!!
