I'm one of the people this didn't work for. It dried out my skin quite badly, giving my face that dry squeaky feeling. I know that overdrying the skin can cause more breakouts if your skin overcompensates by producing more oil.

This isn't any better than any other clay mask, in my opinion and experience. I'm also concerned about the inclusion of wheat starch as an ingredient.

This seemed to work when I first tried it, but its effectiveness has diminished over time. I am also hesitant to repurchase because I am trying to stay away from ingredients like alcohol that may be drying or irritating, since they tend to aggravate my skin over the longer term.

Maybe I am using this wrong, but I have been applying as a night eye cream. I think the moisturization is decent but am not seeing any benefits for my dark circles or fine undereye lines. It also stings a little (my eyes are sensitive).

This really didn't do too much for me. It definitely makes my hair look better than no product at all (a low bar, to be sure) but it didn't provide enough definition and hold for my wavy layered bob. I have been using Redken Moveability instead, which delivers better results.

I'd been searching for a replacement for my beloved and discontinued Laura Mercier Hydratint in Crimson, and this product piqued my interested when it hit the shelves of my local Ulta earlier this year. The color is quite lovely (described as a "papaya coral") but did not deliver the sheerness, buildable texture and moisturization I was looking for. It tended to turn almost matte …Read more

Having had a good experience with Not Your Mother's wave-enhancing shampoo, I decided to give this one a try. However, this product has substantial differences from the NYM product, the biggest of which is the presence of sodium laureth sulfate! If I had known this had sulfates in it, I wouldn't have bought it. I guess I was just expecting that a wavy hair product from a mid-tier brand …Read more

Spotted this on an endcap at Ulta with a sign promoting a full rebate on all Christophe products. So I thought why the heck not, it's no-risk. Sadly this was a cruddy product on many fronts. I've found it to be incredibly DRYING to my hair, which tends to be oily, and it made my wavy bob look puffy and undefined. The packaging is a bit chintzy in that if you squeeze it to dispense the …Read more
