Good cleansing balm, but heavy for oily skin. I liked how well it removed makeup and the lovely texture is a pleasure to use. However, it's quite heavy and felt like it left a residue on my skin, and it made my eyes cloudy after trying to remove my heavy duty eye makeup. I love the Take the Day Off oil - no residue left on skin or in my eyes.

Amazing gentle purifying mask. Most purifying masks are very drying, this deep cleans without stripping my skin. Absorbs oil and tightens up pores, my face feels soft, clean and balanced after. Does not dry tight or flaky and washes off easily.

Good basic moisturizer. Texture is nice - light, hydrating and doesn't leave my oily skin greasy. Works well for nighttime in the summer, not quite hydrating enough for me in the winter. I have very acne prone skin and thankfully haven't had any issues with breakouts from this product.

Best dry shampoo for the price, I can always find this at TJ Max/Marshall's for $5. Scents smell nice but not too overwhelming or lingering, I like Original the best. Cleans hair without leaving much whiteness or residue.

Love this. Full coverage and brightening for concealing dark circles, I look fresh and awake like nothing else. May be too drying for some but works great on my very oily skin, I set with a bit of powder and it lasts all day without creasing which is very impressive.

Overall result was fine but I eventually figured out it was clogging my pores and giving me acne. I will go back to Benefit's Gimme Brow, which has a drier texture and is more subtle and natural. Boy Brow is wetter with stronger color, so better for a more noticeable or dramatic look but be careful if you have acne-prone skin.

I love this polish! It looks gorgeous over almost any color, but particularly striking over darker polishes. It has teeny silver glitter that shimmers iridescent green and purple when it catches the light. I use this mostly to extend the life of my manicures - I'll touch up chips with whatever color I'm wearing and finish with a coat of this. It gives any color new dimension and a few …Read more

It's important to know that this really isn't a foundation- it's more of a tinted primer, so if you are looking for full coverage, this is definitely not it. I have oily skin and can't wear tinted moisturizers because they clog my pores or make me shiny, but this is great for days when I want to even out my skin a bit without dealing with full-coverage foundation. The texture …Read more
