I use several exfoliators and for me this product is the gold standard. I leave it on for a couple of minutes and when I start to feel it getting hot I rinse it off to find the most glowing skin. I use it about once in three days and the other days i use the Dr. Gross alpha-beta skin pads. I can't speak for how Exfolikate would work on acne-prone skin but I can say that it is one of my favorite products ever. Keep in mind that if you buy it at Sephora and it doesn't work for you, you may return it as long as you are a member or have your receipt.

I want to write a review about Kiehl's Deep Wrinkle Filler, but it's not showing up on the list. I do love this product too, but the Deep Wrinkle Filler is my favorite and gets my highest rating. Also, the abyssine products are great as is the Cryste Marine products. I use the Deep Wrinkle Filler under the Abyssine serum and the Cryste Marine serum. It works fantastically!
I had such faith in this product, fooled because it had Mr. Frieda's name on it, it's expensive, and the packaging made it look very professional. What I found though is that the foam is not as easy to apply as the old fashioned squirt bottles. Also, it takes two hands to get the foam (one to squeeze the bottle, the other to hold the foam), so it's hard to do all that, part my hair, and get the foam in at the roots (I have long hair). I think short hair would have made the application easier. While the color was processing, I started reading some reviews, several stating that the color I was using, medium golden brown, turned out black on other women. I ran upstairs and washed out the color with 10 minutes to go, and sure enough, my hair is black. I am SO disappointed. I can deal with this but it's a huge disappointment and I WARN those of you who are thinking about trying this to beware that in the case of this shade, at least, the color is much, much different than that shown on the package. The pluses are that the coverage is good, the gloves high-quality, and that the foam, while it did get everywhere, was fairy easy to clean up. John Frieda, fix this product, please.
Writing this review is moot because Malta was discontinued about a year or two ago. Still, I must say it's the best lip liner I've ever used, and over the years I probably bought a dozen of these Malta lip liners. It's a perfect mauve shade (on me at least). It's a bit harder so that it stays on perfectly and is ideal under lighter pink or coral colors, especially when the liner and lip colors are blended together. It's a very "cool" tone and probably doesn't suit everyone but it's perfect on me. Contrarily, Mac's popular Spice lip liner is far too orange on me.
I've had several go-to concealers over the years and this is my favorite for the last several years. I like the slip of it as I apply it (I pat it on or use a brush to apply the color and then pat), I like the color, and I love the coverage. On me it doesn't settle into wrinkles and I DO use powder on top of it. For me it's entirely worth the price. I have bought a dozen more reasonably priced concealers that I've had to throw away because either the consistency, color, or coverage weren't good. I highly recommend this product. If you want, you can always have a rep apply it and see how it wears for a day before purchasing it....
I am always utterly perplexed that this product is so highly rated by so many people. On my lashes it takes many coats to build up, it's not easy to work with, and worst of all it flakes and smears on my eyelids. Every few years I give it another try and come away as disillusioned as ever.
Waaaaaaaa! I've heard so much about this blush, and while it looks great on my hand, it doesn't do a thing for my face. The color doesn't look natural (Plum Gorgeous by Clinique is much better for me), and it doesn't go on evenly.
