Dec/20/2009

I am 30 and dealing with persistent acne. I usually stay away from bp products as I find any 'results' to be temporary and the products tend to lose their effectiveness overtime for me. On the plus side, this formula is to be used as a spot treatment and was less drying than other brands I have tried. I have been using it for about 1 month and am about 3/4 of the way through my first …Read more

I do think this product is okay, though the alcohol content is high. My skin is a bit dry after using it, but overall it was fine.

One of the main ingredients in this is witch hazel and I have found a much cheaper alternative (which is also less drying): Dickinson's original witch hazel. It can be found at Wal-mart for about $5. I have substituted this product for the …

This review is for the TendSkin deodorant. While is smells nasty and chemically upon application, it works at neutralizing odors. It is unscented, but one or two swipes under the arm is all you need for protection. My only issue is that I prefer to use natural products... I am loving my Hugo Naturals sea fennel and passionflower deodorant!

This product did not work for me. I found that is just make my skin feel greasy and look more inflamed; but no positive effect on reducing my blemishes.
I like the night acne treatment(Night Breeze) better, though I will not be repurchasing because it has not made a great enough difference in my skin to warrant the $52US price tag.

Nov/19/2009

I did not enjoy this product very much. The texture is very rough as the grains in it are large pieces...I think I prefer a finer milled scrub or one that is synthetic and 'round' so that it prevents scratching/scraping of the skin. Also, I was instructed that I could leave it on the skin for a while before rinsing for a better exfoliation treatment, but all this did was make my skin …Read more

I like that these cleansing pads exfoliate with a textured pad. At first I overdid it though and my skin got irritated. I think these would be good to have on hand to use maybe a couple of times a week when my skin is not suffering from a breakout... the formulation of the toner is natural and gentle.
(for those that do not like the textured pre-moistened pad, you can purchase the toner …

Nov/19/2009

This product really dried my skin out...after washing, my skin felt so tight and dehydrated. It made my skin look weathered and crapey. Maybe it would suit very oily skin better. Much too harsh for my skin.

So I decided to try the Berry Fruit bar for sensitive skin. This dried my skin too(though less than the Toner Tea bar) and left it a bit splotchy with reddened irritated …

Nov/19/2009

This is a gentle foaming cleanser for all skin types. I feel like this is a good natural cleanser that does not cause severe dryness or redness after using it(which tends to be a problem I have with cleansers). It does not irritate my eye area either which is also a common issue I have with many cleansers. It is expensive at $42US, but it is very concentrated so a little goes a long way. I …Read more

This product is like a facial oil, but absorbs quickly without the greasy after-feel. I have combo. acne-prone skin and find this moisturizer good for use on the drier areas of my face that do not have blemishes.
