WOW! I love this stuff! I got 10 large sample sachets to try. I am now planning to purchase the full size. I have sensitive combination very acne prone skin. I use tazorac (a prescription retinol product) so I have to use sun protection every day otherwise my skin peels from the sun. This stuff is SO weightless! You don't even feel it at all. There is no greasiness unlike most sunscreens which is awesome since my T-zone is oily. It doesn't dry out my skin either which some high zinc oxide sunscreens can do. The tint is like a tinted moisturizer coverage. I've switched to using this as my makeup since I've always been a tinted moisturizer gal. Prior to this I used Bobbi brown's tinted moisturizer. I'm NC20 in skin tone and I find this works well. I think as long as you have a lighter skin type, it will work well. I cannot tell you how many sunscreen products I've tried, many of them top rated: Shiseido Urban Protection Oil Free SPF 42 (too drying & emphasizes flakes + broke me out), La Roche Posay Anthelios XL Tinted (this is the European version, it's ok, but makes me a little oily), I tried organic sunscreens like Kiss my face, Jason, etc. All too oily! So search no more and try this! I wish I hadn't wasted my time and hesitated on trying this. I think I was off-put by the price so I went for cheaper options. Just try it!
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - MooGoo - 3 Vitamins Eye Serum
tiggercat 9/13/2012 7:54:00 AM
My eyes are always dry! I've hated how whenever I buy an eye concealer, the sales lady would always say "Do you use an eye cream?, because your eyes are very dry!" There are some brands I have tried which are good like the Body Shop Nutriganics Eye cream or Korres Quercetin and Oak Eye Cream, but I like this better. This doesn't cause me milia which I've gotten with some eye creams. I like this serum best because it hydrates perfectly at night and I know it's chock full of wonderful vitamins without chemical fillers. I wouldn't recommend this during the day as it's too oily, but at night this is perfect and it absorbs as I sleep, and I wake up with refreshed eyes.
Deodorants -Unlisted Brand - MooGoo - Fresh Cream Deodorant

I LOVE THIS DEODORANT! I've become more conscious of what goes on my body as we absorb so much from our skin. I don't like the thought of absorbing aluminum in normal deodorants which could possibly contribute to Alzheimer's! I have tried OTHER natural or organic deodorants. Those crystal ones which claim to have no aluminum still do! The crystal part is the aluminum. I also tried Desert Essence's deodorant but it didn't work as nice as this one. This one works very well. Yes it's not as effective as the aluminum deodorants but it works very well in minimizing the sweating and preventing odor. I've never had anyone tell me I smelled or felt like I was too sweaty. This does an excellent job and I have gone through 2 of these deodorants. This is my HG deodorant now.
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - MooGoo - Anti-Ageing Face Cream
tiggercat 9/13/2012 7:44:00 AM
I have received a sample of this from the lovely MooGoo team! It is very nice. It moisturized my combination skin in winter quite well. It gave me a nice glow and most importantly, since I am crazy acne prone, I mean I break out sooo easily, this did NOT cause any new breakouts. I think I prefer their acne cleansing cream since it helps control the hormonal breakouts really well, but I would not hesitate to use this when I get a bit older and my hormonal breakouts calm down. I'm only 28 now. I would definitely recommend this cream! I'm planning to get some for my dad who loves anti-aging creams.

This is a review for my cousin who uses this product. I sent it to her because I love MooGoo's products, especially the acne cleansing cream, and I thought she might enjoy their products as well. She has almost finished her bottle. She has normal non-sensitive, non-acne prone skin. Her skin was looking a bit ruddy and dull. She used this and said it felt really nice and soothing on the skin and sunk in very well. She said it has helped improve her complexion tremendously. She loves it!

This is my HG moisturizer! I've only had one other HG which is L'occitane's red rice line which is soon to be discontinued. I've used this for 4 months. It's helped with my hormonal acne. I now have the clearest skin I've ever had in years. Even my previous HG wasn't as good as this. I've suffered from acne for 10 years. It's become milder as I got older and probably thanks to 2 rounds of accutane, but it was always there and worse during that time of month. I'd say my adult acne is mild. I couldn't believed how much this worked! I can't stop staring at my skin because it's great! This is perfect for combination skin. It doesn't break me out. It hydrates perfectly & doesn't make me oily in my T zone. It might not be enough for drier skin types though, I'd recommend the MSM MooGoo cream for dry skin, which is my winter moisturizer. I can't recommend MooGoo enough. I tried it because of all the rave reviews on forums, and since it wasn't expensive I figured, what do I have to lose? I already tried drugstore brands, expensive brands like La Mer, Philosophy, Estee Lauder, Aesop, Korres etc. So I bought it and now I'm a MooGoo lover for life. I will NEVER switch from this brand because of the results.

This is a review for me & my husband since we both use this product. HUBBY: Has rosacea and VERY DRY skin. He uses this every morning & night. He has the big tub of it and it's lasted him a long time. I think in 6 months he's gone through half. It moisturizes his dry skin well and calms down his rosacea. He loves it. ME: I have the smaller version in the airless pump bottles. I have combination acne prone skin. I use this on my dry skin days, usually most days in winter, and anytime my skin feels irritated. This doesn't break me out & I'm very acne prone. It moisturizes very well without making me greasy. It is also very soothing. I love it! This is my HG winter moisturizer & dry skin days moisturizer and I've rarely had an HG before yet I've tried SOOO many brands from La Mer to Estee Lauder to Lancome to Korres to Aesop to drugstore brands like Olay & Neutrogena etc. I've tried it all! My only HG before this has been L'occitane's red rice line which is soon to be discontinued. This stuff is the best. It simply works! My HG summer moisturizer is the MooGoo Acne Cream.

I love this cleanser! I use it for my face. Takes makeup off with no problem. There is no makeup left on my cotton pad after I wipe away my toner. It is also very gentle and non-drying. Smells like ice cream and delicious but it's not fragranced as it's meant for people with sensitive skin. I also love how you get so much in a big bottle so it will last a long time. It's taken me 6 months to go through half. You can also lock the pump & take it on travels.
Moisturizers -Aesop - Mandarin Facial Hydrating Cream

This stuff is amazing! Definitely my holy grail! My skin was going crazy because I went somewhere warm on holiday & returned to winter. My other moisturizer wasn't moisturizing enough. I had 2 cystic pimples, numerous little breakouts, dry skin, and cracking fragile skin. My skin is not normally that bad. I have combo skin, that just gets mild hormonal breakouts. I think the climate change freaked my skin out. This stuff helped heal the red marks after the cysts, calmed down my irritated and dry feeling skin. The next morning it was amazing how much of a difference it made to my skin. My skin felt so soft & soothed. It hasn't broken me out and I'm very acne prone! Everything breaks me out sadly. SMELL: It smells like oranges! I love the smell of this. ABSORPTION: This absorbs really quick, and leaves a matte finish. It's not greasy at all. For anyone with breakout prone & combination skin, give this a try! I'm glad I did. My Australian friend recommended me Aesop because they care about the ingredients they put into their products and always put a lot of research into them before releasing them. I think they are awesome! I will update if there is any changes. UPDATE: Been using it for 4 months now, I love it! My skin is still looking amazing! Can't recommend it enough.
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Coola- SPF 30 Cucumber Mineral Matte Sunblock
tiggercat 8/2/2012 7:41:00 AM
This is a wonderful product if you're not breakout prone. It's matte, no white cast, and smells lovely! Unfortunately it has isopropyl myristate which is really comedogenic. Broke me out unfortunately :(
This foundation was way too sheer and not only that it BURNS! I don't even have sensitive skin & this stuff burns. I did not like it at all. Too bad I can't return it. It's also super expensive.
I got a sample from Lush of this product. I'm a fan of their bath bombs & haven't tried much else beyond that. I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. It gives you a very natural look & healthy glow. It also hasn't broken me out. I find it gives medium coverage if you mix enough of it with you moisturizer. You can get sheer coverage if you mix in less of it. I usually mix both my moisturizer & this with my fingers & apply. If you need a little bit more coverage in some areas like where you have red marks or blotches, then I just take some of the products and smooth some more on that area. I also put some around my dark eye circles. I just finish with concealer & powder to control the shine & it looks fabulous. If you apply this alone & no powder, you will look shiny. Remember it gives medium coverage at best, you'll likely need concealer, but for me this is perfect. I've tried a lot of sheer foundations & I say this is definately more closer to a medium coverage. I totally recommend this. After my sample I went out & bought a full jar :)
This gives a nice natural look. It's very pigmented so I only need to apply a little. Gives my face such a lovely natural color. I would totally recommend this to try!
Stays put all day, is nice for a natural look if this is all you want to wear, & very nice color. I love the shimmer to this.
Love love love!!! I have combo skin & this does not make me look shiny in my T zone. Feels so lightweight. WRF2 is great for those who have light skin with yellow undertones. This gives you a nice dewy look & is medium coverage. I used to use Revlon Colorstay, but now I'm never going back. Revlon made me look more oily & felt much heavier than this. This makes my skin look radient!
