This mask smells sooooooooo terrible.
I can usually handle herbal or natural smells in products, i prefer them to the artificial mainstream smells..but this, this is a whole other realm.
To me, every time, i get burned bbq chicken. as if you had left bbq chicken out for days and days and then rubbed it all over your face.. with like, a hint of pee...or old undies, or …

Love it. Miracle product. I don't care if i have to save up monthly for it to keep re- purchasing it forever and ever.
(this is the formula without phenol btw, I live in canada and the original formula is outlawed here or something)

For reference, I'm 30 with pcos so i've struggled with comedonal acne since age 12.
used retin-a for a long time but it made my …

Packaging was awesome..Color was perfect...All signs pointed to HG..until I had black eyeliner smudges on my upper lids literally 2 hours after application :|
I'm starting to realize nothing cuts it for us oily skinned gals like liquid liners but who has the time or steady hand every morning to perfect that look...smh.

bought it because of all the great reviews...was having extremely itchy and dry legs, as i do every year around this time when temp starts to drop. put it on before bed. the next day my legs were covered with breakouts..i mean at least 10-15 big, red, pimple like things.. it's a very heavy cream. too heavy for me i suppose... my search continues.

I usually hate two step mascaras.. And i tend to always go back to lancome.. however, i had a cheap moment and got this for free as a gift so i tried it out for a couple of months (one end is this, other end is esteee lauder mascara).
i can honestly say after 2 months, my lashes look fuller and longer. just healthier overall.
i dont think it makes a huge difference as far as giving you …

LOVE this. I've been trying forever to find a face cream that has some magical ingredients to keep away wrinkles and help the acne but.. acne is hormonal and wrinkles are inevitable.
Having said that, i finally got around to using this lotion on a regular basis and 3 weeks later, skin has never looked better. It's got the most basic ingredients but my skin is happy, tone is …

Disappointed again..
This was recommended to me at a health store. It claims to be for combo/oily skin and the texture is great.. You can tell there's shea butter in it cause shea butter always makes the cream spread nicely and your face is so comfortable after.

However...broke me out :(

I looked at the ingredients and i think it's just me.. my face seems to …

Ridiculously expensive for the amount that you get (14.50 canadian) but then again I have spent 18$ on a lip gloss before so, guess I can't complain.

I got this after trying multiple drug/health store brands of lip balms, organic lip balms, chap sticks, medicated/unmedicated balms, even pure organic shea butter & shea oil on my lips to relieve the dryness and cracking but …

this broke me out. i gave it a chance and kept using for a month but it clogged my pores. i'm not too surprised as the consistency was a little strange. each time i would open the jar and dip my finger in, it would just get covered by this clear, slimy stuff, maybe silicone? and the actual white cream bit would sit underneath a layer of that silicone stuff, it was hard to get the cream on …Read more

love this cleanser!
i've been acne prone since age 12 and only now am implementing a better diet and natural cosmetics to let my skin heal. this oil for combo/oily skin is the original one they used to carry before (they only had one)...

the first time i bought it, i had a weird experience with it, it somehow made my skin feel awkward..so it sat under the sink for close to a …
