I took the EPO softgel tablets. The first week all went well. I even noticed my complexion was a bit rosier.

However, in the second week, a few tiny pimples appeared on my cheeks. This is highly unusual for me. I maybe get 1 pimple per year, and only during menstruation. Never have I gotten many pimples at once, and outside of my menstruation timeframe at that.

I …

A truly lasting quality product. Goes on smooth, no streaks, bubbles, or premature cracking. Dries quickly.

Some polishes look great in the bottle, but disappointing on the nail - NOT THIS ONE! What you see is what you get.

I don't wear Nefertiti often (my go-to colors are Chanel neutrals), but it's a very beautiful holiday hue.

I've been using this product for over a year. One bottle will last me between 4 and 6 months, but I usually replace it once I notice the smell changing (meaning it's losing its potency). That happens around month #3.

I use it after cleansing in the morning and at night. I definitely feel it enhances the efficacy of my other facial products (both RX and OTC). It's …

To be precise, my bottle doesn't look like the one above, but I'm sure it's just an older version of the same product. I'm using "Clean & Clear Essentials Foaming Facial Cleanser for Sensitive Skin."

AWESOME!

My husband and I both use and love this cleanser. We were using a pricey John Masters' all-natural facial cleanser (which I …

This product comes with a "BEST" rating on Beautipedia for it's salubrious formula, as well as very high customer satisfaction ratings all over the internet. So needless to say, my expectations were high.

I bought the lip conditioner to combat mildly dry lips, and to assist in a reparation process I've avidly undertaken to restore my discolored (due to past …

I used this on my face and neck only and did not use any foundation or other make-up with this product. It was a little stingy upon application. However, I'm currently one month into a new prescription retinal regimen so most anything that isn't a moisturizer bothers my skin right now. It goes on smooth and absorbed nicely. I did not notice a haze. After an hour of only driving on a …Read more

I read great reviews about this product everywhere on the internet and am excited that it lived up to the hype!

My face has been very dry, tight, peeling since starting Retin-A a month ago. My skin was starvingggg for a deep hydration. It is now so smooth and supple.

It's a bit over-priced and there are unnecessary color additives in the product (Red 33, Yellow 10 …

I can't be without this product! I use it 1-2x a week with a soft facial buffer and it is my favorite part of my skin care regime. It smells delicious and cleanses wonderfully leaving my skin bright and supple.

If used on tender/sensitive skin, I'd recommend smoothing the grains out until it's white and creamy before applying to the face. Since I don't use this …

I'm ever-impressed with the truly natural ingredients used in John Masters products. I like this facial serum, but don't recommend it for people with dry skin or anyone looking for a deep hydration. Just a vita-boost.

I use this to prep my skin after cleansing and before applying my prescription creams. It lessens the stingy feeling I get from Finacea and Retin-A without …

This is a new favorite for me. It doesn't leave my skin feeling stripped or squeaky clean, but completely fresh. I'm not in love with the smell, but it doesn't bother me either.

It's a great complement to my prescription retin-a cream, as the retin-a leaves my skin feeling vulnerable.

My skin looks bright and feels supple all day long.
