HG product! wonderful, classy packaging. product sinks into skin and keeps it moisturized and balanced throughout the day. many other products i have used don't absorb fully into the skin, or aren't moisturizing enough. my skin just soaks this up!! HG status. i want to try the cream version for winter. wonderful smell too!
I feel so-so about this product. I was expecting great results but this really had no better effect than a drugstore conditioner.
After using this twice I stopped wearing face makeup. It stings quite a bit for the first 10 seconds. Maybe it's a psychological thing but my skin surely does look more radiant, even, and less red with this! It brightened my skin a lot, because before I looked tired without foundation/blush on but now I feel comfortable leaving the door with just a bit of under-eye concealer. It hasn't gotten rid of the blackheads on my nose though.
i use this on the ends of my hair every time i shower. i wait till my hair is 80% dry then use about two pumps. It smells great and seems to be absorbed by the hair fast. my hai is the longest it has ever been (bra-strap length) and still healthy. I owe a lot to this product.

Nothing special. I loved the smell. It stinged a bit at first but is generally very mild. 3.5
LOVE LOVE LOVE SO FAR. used it today and skin was instantly brighter and more moisturized. even my boyfriend noticed the difference. i want to try out the other masks too i am sure though if it's attributable only to this product, because i have been using some other products by laneige, thus the 4 and not 5
LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! right after i apply it my skin feels plump and well-hydrated. it is almost as if it has always been thirsty until it met the water sleeping pack! it is very easy to absorb - after 10 or so minutes my skin has absorbed most of it. after i wash it off in the morning my skin is considerably more hydrated (I know b/c it's my foundation glides on versus the day before), and it even reduced the redness in my inner cheek area. i just started using this product and so far i love it. if that ever changes i will update this again!
Scrubs -Queen Helene - Mint Julep Natural Facial Scrub

I bought this based on the reviews. Overall, it is an ok product, nothing special. The grains were not fine enough and it does an ok job. I like the Alba Sea Kelp Scrub much better. But this is mot bad to have around b/c of the cheap price. As for the mask, I used that first before coming to the scrub. The mask I would give 3.5 stars. Dries out pimples and oil, but doesn't do as it promised with blackheads and pores.
LOVE the application and look of this product. also have it in Doll Face (after I colored my hair this cool-toned pink suited it better). absolutely natural, beautiful color only complaint: doesn't last the whole day. well, you can't have everything right? 4.5 stars
IN LOVE! I love this foundation. HG status. skin is dewy, flawless, and natural. I have it in 201. only problem is the package: easy to spill and not very sanitary.
Foundations -Make Up For Ever - HD High Definition Foundation

I really liked this foundation at first. I even finished a bottle and bought a new one. But nowadays I realize it is not long-lasting enough for the entire day (have to reapply). Looks great in photos. It can get cake-y too. I have found another that I really like.
Ok shampoo but weighs hair down a bit and there's build-up by the end of the day.
i am in love. i used to have the elchim which was a great blow-dryer, but nothing compared to this. it's so light and dries my hair really fast. it doesnt even seem that incredible until i see this results: silky, shiny, smooth healthy hair. so effortless. totally worth the price.

This product doesn't really do anything. It doesn't moisturize at all.
Treatments -Pantene - proV treatment Intensive Moisturizing Mask

This review is for the Nourishing Moisture Replenishing Mask. I normally use the Pantene conditioner and blow-dry my hair, then use a leave-in conditioner. I happened to use this yesterday instead of the conditioner, and after I blow-dried it, it is as if I had already put in leave-in conditioner! My hair was so soft and silky! This definitely made a difference!
