Huge thumbs up, this blows my Pai organic cleanser for acne-prone skin out of the water! An esthetician used this on me and then gave me a sample bottle to use after my last chemical peel to treat my acne scars. I'm shocked to find that it is actually helping my acne, because it's just a cleanser, not an actual med... I have tried so many different acne medications unsuccessfully …Read more

This and the rose cream moisturizer helped calm down and clear up my skin after months of frustration from trying every form of treatment- I was even seeing a dermatologist- and still breaking out. This is very gentle and non-irritating. You don't need to use very much. The ingredients are all natural; I think that's what made the difference for me. My skin is doing so much better now; …Read more

This is the only cleanser that has helped clear up my acne!! I had horrible adult acne and I didn't realize that the cleanser and moisturizer I was using were actually making things worse. The cleanser was supposedly for acne-prone skin, and it's also made by an organic skincare company, but it was way too harsh. The moisturizer was recommended by a MA at Sephora; they said it was fine …Read more

There's nothing amazing about this brush. The bristles are rough and it started shedding after a while. It was really annoying because the hairs would shed on my face as I was applying my makeup- having little black hairs on your face is not very attractive! The brush fell apart after a while, with the bristles falling out in small clumps. A low quality, lousy brush. I upgraded after this …Read more

I love KA and wanted to love this blush, but it goes on too blotchy and uneven. Really unflattering. The color does pop but apparently (according to reviews here) there are some pretty good dupes out there of this shade of pink. I bet they apply more smoothly so I may check them out. Will not repurchase this.

NOT impressed with this. Not once has it made my face look better. I have pretty good skin with the exception of some blemishes here and there. It took me a while to finally give up on it because I kept thinking I was somehow using it wrong... each time, I found the rest of my makeup (blush, for example) went on streaky and uneven. My face looked patchy. I used a good moisturizer underneath so I …Read more
