Liquid -Rimmel - Stay Matte + SkinPure Complex Clarifying Matte Foundation

Okay so maybe Im skewed, because I started Tetracycline for my skin at the same time, but I really liked this product. Granted, I dont put it all over my face, but where I put it, it covered well, stayed matte even though Im greasy, and even helped under my eyes. I was surprised to see all the bad reviews. I have sensitive skin and it didnt cause my any hives, milia or anything. Been using for about a month and I liked it!
Im a recent ironer, and I wasnt using anything at first (I know- eek!). But I started noticing a lot of damage and split ends, and I saw this in a store. I dont know why it got some other bas reviews, I guess not every product is for everybody- but it has done wonders- helped keep the straight in my hair and protected it, with a nice non-greasy finish. Definitley re-buy!
Ive tried waxing a few times- never really had any success- but it was the end of winter so I thought I would give it a try...these were bad. I had wanted to try NADS for a while, but this was terrible. When I was reading the outside of the box, I was concerned about the few strips, but then I read you could use them again so I thought "well ok!". But when I tried to use them, not all the hair came off the first time (the ones that came off were rather painful and ungraceful), and they were basically not sticky after that, so going a second time was laughable. But I gave it a try after "smudging" the wax around a little, and SOME hair came off, but I still had some left. By the time I got it all, I had probably used 3 strips and it was painful. I ended up getting about 74% of my legs done, and the rest I used my electric razor on. My legs were never "smooth". Now as it has been growing back in, I have to keep an eye and counteract the ingrown hairs and observe the little scabby bumps I have everywhere. Terrible.
All the women in my family use this as their daily "cleanser" and it lightly exfoliates nicely- of course, this depends on how much pressure you apply. Needless to say, wet a washcloth, apply a small amount to it and lightly and in a circular manner go over your face, then rinse with warm water. Perfect, simple and of course, inexpensive =)
I received a sample with another KOHL'S product I purchased and I absolutely loved it! Im not a big perfume-person, but this was vanilla-ey and fruity at the same time, without being "old ladyish" or overwhelming. Wonderful!
Well, I read the glowing reviews on here (I have about 3 little pits on my face from previous skin problems) and I wanted a more "even" look on my skin and prevent breakouts, so I bought the kit, even at a whopping $65 (thats a lot for me at least). I was very excited to try it, but I found myself disapppointed that I didnt have the "glowing" look that other people on here seemed to have after the first treatment. I also had a bit of a breakout (it was following a hormonal breakout so I didnt right away attribute it to the peel) so I tried again about a week later. I didnt notice any glowing and the breakouts continued beyond normal, so I dont think this product was for me. Luckily, I bought this at skinstore.com (the best site on the internet if you ask me) and they have a return policy which includes used products, so I sent it back. To its credit, however, I did see a huge difference in blackheads on my nose. Much less of them and the ones Ive had forever were much less noticeable.
Well, after reading the rave reviews on here, I bit the bullet (and spent the money!) on the little trial Pitta kit. I didnt really notice anything, so i figured it took a while to really get going, and bought the full size ones. Well, two months later, my skin is still oily, still spotty. I really wanted it to work. So I wont be buying again, especially when you see that you spent a fortune for ground up lentils.

Wow, I too am surprised at the negative reviews. I wasnt wearing this for an hour when I was bombarded with compliments. Its been discontinued, but I bought Walgreen's out of it and the Starry Night (they were $1.99 each). Excellent!

Well, after reading the reviews on here, I was skeptical. I was excited at first about Jergens firming stuff, but actually, that made me break out on my body which is really unusual. But, I lost some weight and my bust could use a little "firming"- which is a terrible problem for somebody whos 24 to be experiencing. So I hunted it down on eBay- and I have to say, its great! The claims are true, I can physically see AND feel the difference. I was also frightened I was going to run out (I use 2-3 pumps each application) , but it has surprisingly lasted a long time, and since I bought 2 bottles, I still have another one to go. Bravo!
I read the reviews the other ladies posted here, and since it has been my ongoing quest to find a great concealer, I was skeptical. But I closed my eyes and purchased Tabula online, and it arrived yesterday. I have never been so happy about makeup. I was a little disappointed, when I opened it up I found the same 2 typical "orange" concealers (I was horrified to finally figure out that I didnt cover up my blemishes- only covered them with orange streaks that were very obvious!!!) but I started mixing them around. A little green, a little pink. And oh my lord, it blended absolutely perfectly. I LITERALLY had a FLAWLESS complexion, and NO orane spots! And it was very hot and humid, but this makeup stayed right in place. I went ahead and tried a little bit of the pink underneath my eyes- it realy helpedz!!!! I couldnt recommend it more....thank you MAVEN!
Again I liked LV's facial cleansing so much that I took a chance and bought the hair kit. This conditioner is pretty light, which is not what I expected as this brand has so many essential oils in it. Clean rinsing, smells great.
I always rotate hair products, because my hair always ends up getting build up and being flat. I liked their facial line so much I thought Id take a chance on their hair products. So I bought the kit. This shampoo smells so nice, rinses out clean and didnt hurt my color. A+ so far.
I absolutely love this scent..I had no idea that "everyone" was wearing it, or that the Spears did. I just love it! You almost want to eat this stuff. I also like the Tahitian Paradise too.
You dont understand what I went through with a spot of acne on my body. I went to everyone- doctors. Tried countless over the counter treatments. Now its happened. Its gone, and the redness and scars are fading also. This in conjunction with Aveeno Cleansing Bar on that area has changed my life. It was painful and awful, now its gone!!!

Like any other hair product, I usually end up rotating because of build up which leads to lack of effectiveness. This will work one time realy great, and then not another. Going to try John Frieda ocean effects instead.
