Looks thick and feels oily, but this cream absorbs nicely into your skin. I rub it a bit first on my hand to warm it up before applying like other users have suggested. This really calms my acne and any red spots around my skin. It's a dramatic difference.
I love this product!!! It's cheap and most importantly, it works. My skin is noticeably brighter after the first use and my acne marks seems lighter as well. Even my friends noticed and asked what I was using. The only thing is that you have to use this mask consistently. But at $6, I don't mind too much.
My skin feels really nice and there's a certain glow to it that I can't exactly describe. My acne marks seem to diminish faster as well. I only apply this at night time, but even so, I have to blot my face 3 times the next day and my skin looks shinier than usual. I do have oily skin, but using retina-a has controlled my oil secretion. So I took off 1 lippie for the oilyness that it has caused.

I love!!! I have oily acne-prone skin and it helps my skin stay matte without irritating it. My face looks brighter and more alert compared to when I had none on. The bottle was a bit annoying towards the end. The dispenser stopped working so I had to open the bottle and pour it out.

This didn't work too well with my skin. It broke me out :( My face does feel really refresh and clean afterwards. Unfortunately my skin is just too sensitive.

This was just too drying for me to the point where my skin began flaking and I have oily skin. I just stopped using it, so I can't determine if it helped with my acne or not since it wasn't long enough.

Very light, absorbs quickly, and doesn't feel greasy. Other than that, it doesn't do much for my skin. I feel it is more of an ok moisturizer. I'm not impressed or disappointed. I do have problem skin, so I need something more than that.
IT WORKS. One of the products that actually claim what it does, fades marks. It is a very slow process (meaning it doesn't fade as fast as you like), but I haven't found any other products that works wonders like this one. I randomly found it at TJ Max for $5. Definitely worth a try.
Not for me. Does lather really well and skin feels more matte. I felt like my skin was getting better, but stopped and was breaking out again :(
Unfortunately, this did not work well with my skin. I used it several times. At one moment I thought it might have brighten my skin, but I realized that it clogged my skin more than anything :( My skin felt congested with a bunch of white heads, which is a huge sign for me that my skin is not reacting nicely to the product. :(
Now I understand the rave about bb creams. I absolutely love this one! Made my skin look smoother and more natural compared to other foundations that I've used. It almost looks like I have porcelain skin on some days. I also noticed that my acne scars started to fade after using this, which is a major plus! Did no break me out, but didn't necessary improved it either. I usually like to apply this at least half an hour before I go out so it can oxidized and blend in with my skin. Otherwise, it makes me look ghastly.
Overpaid for this online and will never purchase again. After reading all the hype, I got excited and ordered one. Made me broke out horribly within a few days. Stopped using it immediately and my skin is healing.

This attracted me with its natural ingredients. It doesn't feel much like a scrub, it's a more watery than I expected. Didn't do much for my skin either. I guess it does its job cleaning, but that's it. I just needed something that does more than that.

I received a sample with an Origin purchase. I LOVE this product!!! Made a dramatic difference in my skin and is consistent with its results. My acne marks are are a lot lighter and really did the job of brightening my skin. Isn't oily, absorbs really fast, and the little sample lasted about 2-3 weeks for me. There were no signs of irritation (I have sensitive skin). During the first few days of use, I already received compliments from my coworkers. They even asked what I was using! The full bottle is pricey, but I have never been so satisfy with a moisturizer that I'm willing to cough it up and pay.

I really like this face wash. Feels like it really help stabilized my acne. My skin is getting better! It cleanses your face leaving it fresh, but doesn't strip down the essential oils. My face just feels nicer and cleaner everyday :)
