I really needed a good moisturizer, but had to be light weight. SA talked me into this one. Love the gel texture, felt cooling, no annoying smell and did not break me out like other reviewers, but it's so sticky. Never really sinks in. Didn't really moisturize either. I could have put another layer on as soon as I woke up this morning but my face is still sticky. Definite fail. I would not recommend.
I like this foundation.....light enough for when my skin is behaving buildable when it's not. Not matte, but not dewy either. I don't use a primer, I do have to touch up with powder half way through the day, but then I do with anything I use. No big deal. Didn't break me out, which is a HUGE bonus. I would recommend.....

Not a fan of the jar. A squeeze tube would have been better for the shower. Got it half price ($6.99) probably won't have bought it full price. That being said, holy cow, I have very fine hair so just focused on the ends of my hair. Love it. My hair is soft and bouncy, easy to style. Not weighed down or greasy. The smell is fanastic. Would repurchase (on sale, because I'm cheap LOL) Recommend

At first this was working really well. Like the smell, natural ingredients, no breakouts (which usually happens when i try something new), and cleaned really well. Almost wrote a "glowing" review UNTIL one night I used as usual, and my face turned beet red and started burning. What is up with that!!!! Definitely hit the garbage can.

Very creamy, lathers really well. Leaves me soft and smooth, not parched and dried out. I've not tried the other scents (didn't like them in the store), but this one right away had me hooked. A really fresh, clean smell. A little on the expensive side, but you don't need much. Love it.

On my daughter's insistance I picked up the ample amber and boy am I glad I did. Goes no smoothly, no tugging. I worked an 8 hour shift and it stayed fresh with no creasing. Very buildable without looking cakey, but can be worn sheer for a quick run out the door look. Going to pick up more colours today. I do recommend.
I've been using this off and on since I was a teenager (along time). I don't know why I stray (maybe thinking there is something new and better). I don't wear waterproof anything so I can't comment on removal of those products, but for me it removes my shadows and mascara without burning, blurring or leaving an oily mess. I like the plastic bottle (old heavy glass bottle wasn't good for travel), and I like the soft scent. I think I'll stop experimenting with other products and just to stick to this one. If it ain't broke don't fix it, right. I do recommend it.

I use concealer to hide dark circles and to even out skin tone but what I really needed was a concealer to hide blemishes but also dry them up. This is the only one I could find that would said it could do both. I'm so glad I gave it a try. Easy to use and I do notice a big improvement on how long my blemishes last now. I would definitely recommend it.
I bought this to go on vacation. Dispensed some into a travel pump (not easy). Very thick and my pump didn't work very well with this lotion, but I did manage to get it going. Not sure if I love the smell, but thankfully it disappears quickly. It leaves my skin very soft. Dirt cheap for the size of the bottle. Love that it has a pump. I would definitely recommend.
I was on a long car ride yesterday. Heat was on, lips got dry. Pulled this out. Went on very smoothly, EVERY HALF HOUR! The more I put on the drier my lips got! Ended up pulling over at a gas station and got the milk and honey one. AWWWW that's better. Terrible. Definitely not recommended. Tossed

I wanted to try this because of all the reviews on MUA. It was included with a GWP this week at the Bay. Yes, I love the colour, but use a light hand. I found it very pigmented. Couldn't really rate the packaging because the GWP packaging is not the regular packaging and the GWP packages are always awful (IMHO). I would recommend
Picked this up on special this week. Love this gloss/colour. Since it is on special I'm going to pick up other colours.
First and foremost, I absolutely love the way this foundation makes my face feel and look A little goes a long way. It glides on and blends really well. I have gotten so many compliments when using it. HOWEVER, my skin does not like it! I have started to breakout on my chin. I'm hoping it is hormonal. So I'm going to lay off to let my skin calm down and try again. I will update. That being said, if your skin is not prone to breakouts (like mine) I would highly recommend it.

Why I picked up another one I'll never know (sucker for cute looking things????). I didn't like the mint one, actually lost it in a movie theatre - it rolled away. Picked up this one to try again. UGH, it smells like a dirty kitty litter box!!!! Actually made me gag. Washed it off immediately, and tossed it. Not cheap either, this one cost 6.00 at Chapters in a Valentine's day display.
