Feels incredibly soft and hydrating! My only "problem" is the shades. I wish they were less sparkly and shimmery. That might also fix the "gritty" texture that some mention; the texture is fine by me, but I know what they mean. I wish they'd use the shades from the regular Colorburst series, like Fuschia, which is matter.
Lips -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Peach Parfait

Here's the thing. I bought this shade thinking I was getting Emma Stone's advertised shade, but it's far from it. It's much more sparkly and shimmery, which is not so much my style (I like matte shades). However, despite this disappointment, the lipbutter itself was a pleasant surprise. It's super soft and hydrating, and feels like chapstick and is not sticky at all.

In the winter my face gets very dry, even in my T-zone (which gets oily and dry/flaky simultaneously). This is the first thing I put on my face after my face cleanser system (skipping/ or before the system's moisturizer) and it is my HG product! It feels light, smells wonderful, and moisturizes at the same time as it allows your usual moisturizer to work better. It costs the clothes off my back, but it feels worth it!
Cleansers -Biore - Combination Skin Balancing Cleanser

I was actually very excited to try this product. After quitting BCP my face broke out and so Proactiv has been the only product to keep the break-outs "under control." But I still broke out and I felt as though it dried my face out (except for the T-zone which was still too oily) and so I wanted something milder, cue Biore. I only used Biore for a week, but it made my face incredibly oily. When I say incredibly, I mean INCREDIBLY. I felt like I dipped my face in a tub of bacon grease. I tried the tonic (which is supposed to dry your skin out a bit more), and I tried not using as much moisturizer, I even switched moisturizer. I use all oil-free products and so this was very disappointing to me. Maybe my face is just oilier than I've thought and Proactiv is just twenty times stronger than I've assumed, but all in all... way too oily.
