Ultra Repair Lip Therapy

6 hours ago

This would be a really great lip balm if it wasn’t for the fragrance. There are a lot of great ingredients in it but oh the scent! It’s really strong. Normally I don’t mind a minty lip balm but this is more like soap than mint and I am sure this can’t be good for lip health. I have to agree with one of the other reviewers, it smells/tastes medicinal. I’m done trying new lip balm products and will stick with my HG ones that never do me wrong.

Ultra Repair Hyaluronic Hydrating Primer

I actually use this as my undereye primer(for concealer). A lot of hydrating primers make my makeup smear around my eyes but this one doesn’t. It makes my skin feel and look like smooth hydrated luscious skin. Once I add my concealer they both melt into each other and look so good. If you need hydration this primer is perfect. I’ve just repurchased my 2nd bottle so to me it’s a gem. It does have a fruity sandalwood scent however it doesn’t bother me at all. It fades away but it’s there for sure at first. Make sure you know that before buying.

KP Bump Eraser Body Scrub 10% AHA

Pros: - quick results - convenient to use - a little goes a long way - nice packaging Cons: - very harsh - expensive compared to other treatments This product works and it works fast. I've had KP on my arms and thighs for forever and I've tried many different treatments (typically in the form of lotions/creams). I would get good results but I had trouble being consistent. I don't like to use KP treatments during the day because they often smell or have a sticky texture. I would try to use them at night before bed but I would usually forget. I was excited to try this out because I figured a scrub in the shower would be quick and easy to remember. And it is! Even better, I had results in the first week (using the scrub every other day). Unfortunately, this scrub is very harsh! I thought I would be able to tolerate it and I stuck with it for a few weeks because I loved the results. But the truth is that this scrub is just plain uncomfortable to use.It felt very scratchy on both my arms and legs. Not to mention if felt like it would sand my palms down to the bone during use. I don't consider my skin to be sensitive and I have used scrubs before, but I think this particular scrub is just too harsh for continued use. This scrub costs $26 for 8 ounces of product. A little goes a long way so I'm sure a bottle will last for a long time. However, compared to treatments you can find at the drugstore this is quite expensive. I loved the convenience of treating my KP in the shower but I think I will go back to using lotions and creams. If you enjoy gritty scrubs and don't find them uncomfortable to use, you might have luck with this. For anyone with sensitive skin, I would stay away!
