This complements my nighttime routine like nothing else. I use pea-size every other night after cleansing and toning, concentrating on dry spots and hyper pigmentation spots. And when it is completely dissolved I rinse off, anywhere between minutes to hours. Highly recommend for prepping the skin for other treatments. It calms and moisturizes and brightens. And if you use this in combo …Read more

Got this as part of try-me kit for aging/wrinkle kit for $28 and find the cream an essential element in effecacy of the system. Very expensive on it's own but I can see myself purchasing on it's own. Similar to the Md forte's hydrating cream in it's ability to soothe and tone down the redness and dryness over night. Works well under powder foundation and little goes long …Read more

Evens out my pores for flawlessness I've been looking for most of my adult life! Seriously love the end result and I would never thought little color could give such glow! I wash regularly with my faithful Md forte cleanser and moisturize regularly and wait few minutes and apply with foundation brush. Few swipes on brows, cheeks and down the length of my nose and dab on some sunscreen. …Read more

Bought this before they switched the plain bottles to pumps. Smart move since I find shaking vigorously to mix up the watery clumps and uncapping to get the watery foundation onto my palm always meant dealing with some "leakage". A pain and as time went by I just did not reach for it as much, so needless to say, there is so much left after few weeks of continous usage in the beginning …Read more

I have been using brown and white sugar scrubs mixed in with jojoba and olive oils in the shower. I threw in some ground up oatmeal and I'm really liking the consistency of the scrub. It is working better as though turbo-charged and I don't have to rub as hard. I find oat meal can be drying for my face but really liking it for the rest of the body. No more expensive scrubs for me.

My dry skin can't tolerate this! Love the coverage and the lasting power. I tried to make it work because of the finish and coverage. Different moisturizers or primers or fluid foundations did not help. I could not wash this off fast enough. Cleansing made me tight, red and irritated but judging by how my skin is reacting to pressed powders these past months, I believe I need to move …Read more

Perfect dewy creamy hydrating foundation for my mature dry skin. Coverage is buildable but one sheer layer is enough to cover some red marks. Perfect for this time of the year because I feel almost protected from the elements, as though I put on lotion. This is not a light foundation. I'm not sure how this would hold up in warm weather. More than a layer feels heavy on the skin and …Read more

Too drying and has no coverage, so worthless for me. Can't use under eyes because it is not a creamy finish but flaky one that ages my eye area. Very unflattering. No lightening, brightening qualities but just a matte flat dry tightness that turns me off this brand for good.

Sub par in every way. Has a chance to try practically the entire line of this all natural products at a friends who is a real advocate. Regardless of how good a pressed powder for my skin I'm not putting in on since it: flakes off my foundation in drying itchy mess, has no coverage whatsoever and too matte for my preference. Can't even imagine putting this over their fluid …Read more

Got a sample which gave me enough for several uses. All natural ingredients sound good on paper. This fluid foundation gave: no coverage, no lasting finish, no glow, and no shade or consistency that I can work with. Did not mix well mix others, highlighters or moisturizers. Sticky and heavy, it just felt "off" as in gone rancid. I'm rating three stars because of it's …Read more
