I love this facial cleanser for my acne-prone, dehydrated skin. It's a no-nonsense cleanser that doesn't aggravate my skin. Rinses off easily. I buy two of the large bottles at a time, one for my bathroom counter and one for the shower. Seems expensive for a drugstore product, but when you compare it to the higher-end cleansers that are full of fragrance and other nonsense, this is …Read more

I use the black shade. Definitely shake before use, or the color comes out more gray-ish. Great for liquid eyeliner beginners like me. You can definitely achieve a thin line or a thicker line, depending on pressure. Comes off easily with makeup remover. Doesn't dry out.

Pretty expensive though.

I use this for acne scars, and it covers sufficiently but not completely. It's also pretty expensive. I don't like to keep this on for more than 8-10 hours, as I think it contributes to some acne. The packaging isn't horrible, but the cap does get messy.

I use this in O60, but I think it's a little dark going on. It seems to adjust to match my color better though. I'm going to try I40 next.

I think it's a bit ridiculous to charge $8 for a separate compact, especially when it's a dingy piece of plastic. The refills are close to $30, which also seems crazy for so little. However, my skin is finnicky and this seems …

I do like putting this on right after I wash my face. I put a full pump in my palm, rub together with my other hand, and pat it on. It seems to keep my skin from drying out. Definitely does not contribute to breakouts, always a plus. Bit expensive, but that's Shiseido for you.

I first heard of the Benton skincare line from the Skin & Tonics blog, and I bought the entire line, minus the mask, for $76 (free shipping) from iamlove-shop on eBay. Out of the four products, I like this essence the best. It seems to help my acne scars heal faster, and they are for sure less red than they used to be. I'm not really sure if they helped decrease the frequency of my …Read more

generally a good concealer. i use it on my acne scars, as i don't have dark circles. doesn't cover entirely, but it doesn't make me break out either. the container's kinda crappy... the rim broke on mine. i don't use the sponge that it came with, it doesn't really do anything.

my brother recommended this to me, as we both have acne-prone skin. omg LOVE. it cleans without overstripping, which was a problem with the prescription benzoyl peroxide cleanser i was using before. i think this cleanser is rebalancing my skin, as there are days when i don't put on any moisturizer and at the end of the day, my skin is still pretty normal, not dry, not too oily. however …Read more
