Feb/05/2016

I have gone through multiple bottles of this - I originally bought this to replace my cetaphil cleanser (because cetaphil has parabens, this does not). I loved this for multiple bottles, but every time I use this for the past few months, it BURNS my face. I don't know what it is, but I've seen other reviews saying the same thing. (this also happens with the neutrogena pink grapefruit …Read more

I absolutely love this stuff!! I have dry, sensitive skin (due to Retin-A) and this is my favorite night-time cleanser/makeup remover. I use this as a 1-step cleanser to remove all eye makeup and foundation etc. With this, I don't feel the need to follow up with a 2nd cleanser - I feel this helped my acne/acne marks heal. I'm SO upset to hear that this has been discontinued, and I …Read more

I absolutely love this foundation! It looks amazing- doesn't cling on to dry patches, or make me look super oily (I have Combo Skin). This even looks amazing still after an hour-long intense workout. I like applying this with my fingers, in a patting motion.

Cons:
Color selection - the lightest shade I can only use when I'm tan
Smell - it smells horrible. But you …

I wanted to love this - the packaging is so convenient. I bought the "blonde" hoping that it would be a taupe-ish color since I prefer a neutral/cool toned light brown however this was VERY warm toned, almost reddish. Bummer :(

This product is good if you want a strong brow as it is very pigmented and the colors are very dark. unfortunately for an everyday brow, I need something with less pigment/ lighter and with a cool undertone. These both run slightly warm. The packaging is great that it comes with a brush. I've never used the wax so I cannot comment on that. Something I do sometimes is use a very small …Read more

I have a love/hate relationship with this product. I love that it's paraben free, doesn't have harmful chemicals and has a high SPF. I have combo skin that has been getting flakey from retin-A, and even though this is think and leaves a glowy finish, it doesn't moisturize those flakey bits. So I have to use a heavy moisturizer (cetaphil moisturizing cream in the tub) underneath …Read more

This is a surprising love for me. I got 340 Delicious for $2.24!! It was in the clearance bin at walgreens and I bought it on a whim! It's the perfect MLBB for me (Light skin, dark brown hair, blue eyes). This also surprisingly lasts a long time on me when I blot it and wear it matte and I'm CONSTANTLY drinking water through a straw . It's not drying or uncomfortable (I'm …Read more

This stuff is AMAZING. I never thought I'd fall in love with a hand lotion. It's thick and takes a few minutes to sink in but once it does it makes your hands look beautiful and soft. Great for cuticles. I Also love that even after you wash your hands, they're still soft from the lotion. The scent is quite different but it's nice. I'm almost done with my travel sized …Read more

HG Face sunscreen. I love that it leaves your skin with a matte (but not too dry) finish, so it's easy to use under makeup. I have very combination skin - flaky areas and then very oily areas. If my skin is feeling oily, I'll use this as my moisturizer or if my skin is feeling dry i'll use this on top of moisturizer. I've been using it for 2+ months now and it hasn't …Read more

This is a really amazing product. I have very combination, acne prone skin. extremely dry, flaky areas but my skin also gets quite oily.

Doesn't break up or wear off when I get oily (wears nicely throughout the day)
Great coverage
Can be sheered out for a DIY Tinted Moisturizer
Shade selection is great …
