So much for vanishing. This product did not do a whole hell of a lot to my acne. I like that it controls oil and doesn't dry white and doesn't irritate your skin (unless you're new to benzoyl peroxide). This stuff didn't do much to my pimples, I have not noticed any visible results, except that it does seem to bring the pimple to a head =/ which might be how it works, but to be quite honest, it makes my pimple look even worse and hard to conceal. I would not recommend this, I don't think it's a great product. Might work for really oily skin types, but didn't work for me.
This stuff is truly amazing. I have cystic acne which is a very painful thing to deal with, physically and mentally. I get those painful red inflamed under the skin bumps which always leave scarring after they heal. I've been using this treatment for 2 years on and off and it's never let me down, but I have noticed if you stop using it...the acne will come back. This is one of those products that I can truly count on if I know I'm about to breakout, this will heal it completely. It also helps cure those red marks left from acne. I love it but I wish I could find something that is easier to find like at a drugstore. The benzoyl peroxide will most definitely cause irritation and redness if you're allergic, or sensitive, or new to using this kind of strong treatment. So be careful not to apply too much at first...start with a small amount and increase as your skin gets used to it. Always moisturize because this stuff will dry you out and make you flake. In junction with this treatment, I suggest you use a mild cleanser otherwise you'll have even more problems.
I've been using this foundation for a couple of days. So far, It's okay. The staying power is just simply fantastic. I love how it covers everything perfectly but yet looks natural. It's feels and looks light but the coverage is heavy (medium).The only thing that I didn't like about this foundation is that it's supposed to be buildable...but when I try to apply more foundation on top...it smudges the foundation I applied on the bottom and the whole makeup application looks uneven. I NEED coverage because I have blemishes and scarring, but when I try to build up more coverage, it just looks like I just took some water with a towel and smudged it off. And another thing is that the foundation dries very quickly, so you have to make sure you apply everything evenly before it dries.

Love, love, love this product! It's such a wonderful moisturizer. It's oil-free, non-comedogenic, anti-wrinkle, and contains protection from the sun! I love that once applied, it absorbs into the skin so quickly leaving it baby soft. I never break out when using it, and definitely see an improvement in the texture and smoothness of my skin. It's just simply fantastic for the price. The jar lasts a long time if used sparingly, you don't need to use a lot because it spreads easily. Sure, it's not very sanitary dipping your fingers in the jar, but before I do that...I wash my hands and use hand sanitizer from spreading any bacteria. I think that combination to oily skin types would benefit more from this moisturizer because it keeps your skin balanced and oiliness at bay. I wouldn't say its moisturizing enough for dry skin though. I have combination skin which is neither oily or dry, but it depends on the environment I'm in. Sometimes when it's humid or hot, I get oily. When I have the air conditioner working all day or when it's cold, it gets drier. But this moisturizer seems to balance it out. I just apply cetaphil moisturizing lotion on dry areas and then the merlot's grapeseed moisturizer on top to seal in the moisture and my skin is left feeling comfortable, smooth, and soft.
It's so moisturizing, perfect for dry skin. When I get breakouts, I must use some sort of acne medication to dry out those pesky zits. And due to that, skin starts flaking, the makeup application becomes more frustrating. This is where the Cetaphil Moisturizing Lotion comes in! It instantly heals any dry patches. I only use it at night though, because if I apply it in the morning, my skin becomes oily within a couple of hours after applying it. I also love that it's fragrance free, and never breaks me out.
I have normal to combination, sensitive, acne-prone skin. This cleanser is very gentle, foams easily, takes off all makeup (except waterproof), and leaves my skin completely clean. I love the pump bottle, and that it's so basic. It works really well for my skin, and It never irritated, or broke me out. It actually helped reduce the amount of breakouts I would get.This is definitely my holy grail cleanser. Two thumbs up! :)
I got a sample of this product, and I've only been using it for 2 days. I found that it works wonders on blackheads. I tend to get oily in the t-zone which makes it more prone to blackheads and breakouts. This stuff is godsend for my skin, because its oil-free and non-comedogenic which are two things that are very important in any skin care product I use. The texture of the scrub is creamy with little round purple beads. It also has a very nice smell, not strong but fresh. I think it would be perfect to use in the morning instead of your cleanser. It's very easy to smooth it on, so you don't need to use a lot. After rinsing, my face immediately looked healthier and felt softer. My face did feel tight afterwards, but not that 'drying' type of tightness. It didn't do much for the pimples I had...but it did reduced the redness. The blackheads on my nose were surprisingly gone and pores looked a whole hell of a lot smaller which is definitely a plus! The only thing I do find a bit negative about this product is that it does not state the ingredients anywhere, it only says that it includes aloe, chamomile & pomegranate extracts to sooth and soften your skin. Other than that, I haven't experience any new breakouts, irritation or dryness. I'd definitely recommend this to people with oily skin and those with oily t-zones.
