Here in Australia, the product is sold as T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo - I don't know if it is the same as what the US has.

I'm a long term sufferer from Seborrhoeic dermatitis meaning that it is somewhat dry, constantly itchy and not a pretty sight (similar to a case of chronic dandruff). I found this shampoo to be somewhat drying, so I'd massage a a moisturiser …

After trying Angels on Bare Skin, I found that it left my skin with a shield of oil - simply does not develop into that 'just cleaned' feel. Herbalism does contain oils but it leave the skin feeling normal and not leave the skin one way or another. I have to admit that getting the product into a paste is a bit of a hassle.

I've dry sensitive skin - though this product is …

Comparable to soap - soap that is alkaline - non pH balanced.
After using this product, my skin felt extremely dry - not helpful at all considering that I suffer from dermatitis. It made my skin feel itchy and unpleasant. Even if you had extremely oily skin, I wouldn't recommend it - something like Herbalism would be better.

This product could only be described as liquid sandpaper. I've got extremely sensitive skin and my skin turned red and felt blaring hot after one application of this product. Skin did feel smooth afterwards, but along with that came with small bumps - a reaction due to sensitivity of the skin.

Considering that this product is almost natural, you can't really complain as the …

If you have dandruff as a result of dermotoses (should be differentiated from dermatitis) of the scalp, consistent use of this coal tar based product should produce results where the skin condition improves. If you have dandruff as a result of a fungal problem, it would be advisable that you use a product containing pyrithione zinc (i.e. Head & Shoulders) or Nizroal as the active ingredients …Read more

Well, I'm quite surprised to say the least. I've got chromic dermatitis on my parts of my face; meaning that it is prone to extreme dryness and sensitivity.

This is my first time with using this product. I did expect the product to be somewhat rich and heavy - what you would associate with products targeted at those in their middle-ages. Though its texture is in between what …

I used to use Retin-A Gel, but have since moved onto Stieva-A Cream (0.05% Concentration of Tretinoin) due to the irritation caused by the alcohol vehicle of Retin-A.

Stieva-A, and like all tretinoin products cause excessive dryness. The last time that I properly used it (approx. 2 weeks in duration) produced fantastic results where the acne scars were half the darkness than they …

Initially, the lotion will cause some stinging to those with broken skin - i.e. pimple scar, etc. As I've got eczema coupled with extremely uncontrollable acne, I use this product twice a week . With everytime that I use it, I'd always wake up to noticably smoother skin.

Price wise, it costed me AUD32 from a pharmacy. It is a little exxy in my opinion, however, the results …

You have to give some time to this product to work. I'd recommend a minimum of 2 months before you can make a firm decision as to whether if it was a yes or no.

The price in Australia is somewhat expensive - think it was $151 for the set from Myer. I purchased my set (men's version of packaging [full size]) for USD34 from the Duty Free store at LAX airport …

FTE is simply nothing but an expensive 'treatment' toner. It does not exfoliate or renew or enliven the skin, nor does it have any dramatic effect on the skin. You can't really complain about the smell as it is somewhat natural and we all love natural products, don't we?!

I experienced no effect with this toner. Definitely will not repurchase considering that …
