If you are Indian like me, coconut oil is a staple in the household lol. Its a very commonly used product all across India and has been used for thousands of years. This is owed to Ayurveda (ancient Hindu medicine system) which expounds the myriad uses of coconut oil (weight loss, aids in digestion, prevention of heart disease, strengthening the immune system...). It really is a miracle oil …Read more

I don't what else to add, seems like everything has been said about this product. It hydrates your skin and feels great. Its great for acne prone skin. The smell is kind of weird but its not too bad. I think this is a pretty good moisturizer even though it does contain methylparaben. It's just so damn difficult to find a decent moisturizer that once you find something that works you …Read more

Superb cleanser. Very gentle yet effective. I love how it foams and how you only need a tiny amount each time to clean your whole face. It really gets rid of dirt and oil and even sunscreen. It leaves skin feeling refreshed and thoroughly clean but NOT dry or tight. After drying your skin feels soft and hydrated and it looks brighter. Of course it is pretty expensive for a cleanser, but one tube …Read more

I really like this mask and have purchased it several times. I love the natural, non-irritating ingredients in it. It just smells and feels so FRESH. It does not leave the skin dry like some other masks and feels very refreshing. The honey and almond shells moisturize your skin and leave the natural skin oils in tact. It's great to put on after a long hard day or even before heading out …Read more

Awesome chapstick. In the middle of winter, I realized that my lips were super dry and chapped so I bought this. Literally, overnight, it restored the moisture to my lips. Amazing! Really pleased. If it helps your lips survive Canadian winters, then you know it's an effective product. Oh and it also contains SPF 15 :D I will definitely keep purchasing this.

Overall, a very nice moisturizer. Non-greasy and non-irritating. I use coconut oil or almond oil for my body but I have been using this on my face ever since starting on Retin A Micro(RAM) recently. It really helps. I often add one or two drops of almond oil to it before applying it to my face. It feels very soothing and makes the flaking (due to RAM) less visible. However, the problem is that I …Read more

I was prescribed this by my doctor along with minocycline and Retin A Micro (RAM) for the pimples I keep getting from time to time. So basically I tried using this as a spot treatment at night for those pesky one or two pimples that keep popping up. It contains BP so i guess it's supposed to dry out the pimple. But it did absolutely nothing for me! I have no idea why because BP is a pretty …Read more

I used this last year but I'm just reviewing it now. I really had high hopes for this product. I bought it to get rid of some very stubborn brown marks leftover from acne which had persisted for over a year. I am of Indian ethnicity and a lot of products that work on other skin types end up being too harsh for my skin, which is why I avoid products with strong ingredients; so I was …Read more

I guess my skin must be really sensitive because most exfoliators irritate my skin and cause red bumps. However, after reading the reviews I thought since the crystals of this product are very fine my skin may be able to handle it. Not so unfortunately. This product irritated my skin badly and did nothing good for it. Also, 3 minutes is a long time to keep massaging the crystals on your skin. It …Read more

I got this product at Zellers for $10 CAD. This stuff isn't bad- it is gentle and didn't cause me to break out. I guess that's because it's made mostly of organic ingredients, which is a big plus especially for the low price. However, this product only gives you a surface clean not a deep pore clean like say Noxzema. So your face ends up feeling 'squeaky clean.' It …Read more
