This is a very high quality product. I don't find the lavender fragrance to be too intense or bothersome. It absorbs quickly into my skin, but I don't think it's rich enough for me.

It hasn't broken me out at all. My skin is rather smooth, other than the dry patches I'm still fighting.

I think this would be great for someone who doesn't have …

I have only been using this product for a few days, but so far, so good!

My skin is normal to dry, but I still get hormonal break outs and have been battling blackheads constantly. This cleanser really appealed to me because I wanted the benefits of fruit enzymes, along with honey and seaweed/algae. Plus the smell reminds me of fall, which is my favorite season.

I don't …

I have fair skin with both cool and warm undertones...I can wear silver as well as light and rose gold (but not deep 24k gold so much).

This color looks wonderfully natural on me, it's so flattering! I had purchased Orgasm before this one, but exchanged it because Orgasm has too much shimmer for my taste (though the color overall still looked nice on me). I don't want people …

I until recently overlooked seaweed, and never considered adding products containing it to my regimen. But I learned more about it recently, and now it is something I want in most, if not all of the products I use, as seaweed is softening, soothing, and brimming with minerals, and this mask has been proof of how beneficial marine plants are for health.

This mask is gentle, cooling …

I decided to try Cerave after reading reviews here. I have had major issues with persistent dry skin in the past.

I recently realized that my facial sunblock had been causing dry skin. I also use Tazorac gel. I've tried several different moisturizers, including natural shea butter. Nothing I had tried was working the way I needed it to. Shea butter is great overall but perhaps it …

I received a coupon in the mail for a free pair of panties and $10 off a purchase, so I went to VS to redeem. For some reason I thought the latter deal was $10 off a $50 purchase, but luckily the cashier pointed it out so I got out of line to poke around....went straight to the eye shadows and picked out this color....it was exactly $10 so I got the shadow and panties completely free. And so far …Read more

I have both pink and yellow in my skin...this color suits me very well. I love it! It enhances and reddens my natural lip color and makes my lips noticeable...it looks good and feels good. To me it feels like a balm and it does not dry out my lips. I like the subtle gloss this lipstick provides...it's not too little, and not too much. I think this is definitely becoming a holy grail product …Read more

I have long lashes. I curled with the Shu curler, and then applied this mascara, using a last comb as a last step (It clumped very little). WOW. I could definitely see a substantial increase in length. Looked very nice, until my lashes fell flat a few minutes later. And when I rubbed my eye, it smudged everywhere.

This is best for shorter, stubbier lashes that need length...the …

I love the light peppermint scent, and the all natural ingredient list. It exfoliates effectively yet gently, with a nice creamy texture. It seems to cleanse nicely too. My skin feels refreshed after rinsing. I really enjoy using it.

I'm a fan of mineral makeup, and had been looking for a way to transport it in my purse neatly for touch ups.

After reading reviews on this brush, it sounded like just what I needed. $28.50 is pretty steep for me, but luckily I had an eyeshadow that was given to me that I wanted to return to Sephora. So I did an exchange and paid a little over $13.00 for the brush …
