HG for Retin-A users! I bought this on a whim. I am back to using the highest strength of Retin-A (0.1%) and my skin was peeling. I knew I couldn't use physical or chemical exfoliants. When this happened before I just tried to use a oil cleanser to get all the flakes off. I bought it because of the muslin cloth (I had never used one before). I use this whenever I see flakes, currently …Read more

The smell is divine; I would consider this one of the best, if not the best smelling product at Lush. However, for the price I do not think it's worth it. When using it as a body conditioner and leaving it on for 5 minutes or so the smell just doesn't last on the skin. It makes my skin lovely and soft but a cheaper, even more natural lotion/oil could do this! I've put this is my …Read more

I was using Bioderma's cleansing water to remove my daily application of moisturizer, water-proof sunscreen and mineral powder and coconut oil to remove my under-eye concealer and mascara whenever I wore it. While coconut oil was doing the job, it took a while to massage the oil into the eye and wipe it off, then go over with the cleansing water and finally wash my face. I tried various eye …Read more

I bought this on a whim from my derms office--not really sure why haha, but I am glad I did. I have young, oily t-zone, prone to blemishes skin with some pores on my cheeks. I haven't even used this for 3 full weeks and I have already noticed a difference on my skin! I tried using it in the morning but it made my skin way to oily so I only use it every other night or every night if I am too …Read more

I bought this last year from the derm, and used maybe half of the bottle with no results...I didn't break out but I didn't see any good come from it either. However seeming as my skin had cleared up quite a bit, I decided to give it a whirl recently.

A couple of months ago, I used it on my face...maybe 2-3 days in a row. The results were just so weird. It made my skin …

My first HG product! Now that I have found, I wondered how I lived without it!

I am 21 and it was only last year that I decided to start wear sun screen basically everyday (rain or shine). Since I rarely burn, it's not as important as some people may think but since I have olive toned skin when I get a pimple, I pigment easily therefore protecting my skin from UVB and UVA rays is …

I was using Colorescience pressed powder before this. The colour was great in the summer but it looked too dark when my tan faded. Since the next colour down was too light, I decided to try Jane Iredale's pressed powder.

I have olive toned skin, that can tan quite easily in the summer but gets light in the winter. I started off using the colour latte. I used it for a while until I …

I love this brush! I use Colorescience pressed mineral powder, and I needed a brush to apply it with (don't ask why I was using a sponge to apply pressed powder LOL).

Anyways I believe it was around $40-50 at my local spa, yah pretty steep but it's well worth it.

It's soft on the face, applies just enough powder and washes well. It's far superior to …

I remember using the original mask a few years ago and loving it. I decided to give the new one a whirl and got a sample from Sephora. I first tried it on my nose alone, nothing happened. Then the second time I tried it on my face, and nothing happened. The third time I tried it and peeled it off my skin was RED. Like red for a few hours. :/
I guess I don't really enjoy peel off masks …
