Pretty worthless... Thank goodness I got it in a kit.

No color payoff, finish doesn't look that good, it's too slick, it's actually drying... I got suckered in by the packaging, but the tube actually feels very cheap and looks cheap close up. I wouldn't take it even if someone were to offer me one for free.

This is an absolutely foolproof blush. As a blush noob (and forever a blush noob), I dig it.

Bad lighting, heavy-handed, wrong base, whatever... Got a carried away and applied too much? Get a clean brush and blend it to nothingness. Product showing up too bright because your base was moist? Top off with translucent powder and buff it out. You look like death and other blushes make you …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Foaming Facial Cleanser - Normal to Oily Skin

Edit:

Ahhhhh the feeling of eating my words...

Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser is less drying and doesn't make my face break out. It *is* fragranced, but I bought it because I was desperate (Neutrogena Gentle Foaming Cleanser was drying out my face) and it worked out really well! For my face, I apply it to dry skin then apply water to emulsify and wash …

Lotions/ Creams - CeraVe - Renewing SA Cream

I probably won't buy this again...

This cream is nothing like the matching lotion. It moisturizes, and that's kind of it. I don't know how high the BHA/AHA levels in this is, maybe it's the other ingredients? but my KP sticks around. It clears up my bacne a bit, but clogs it a bit at the same time.

I use the Renewing SA lotion all the time for my keratosis …

I have keratosis pillaris, mild to moderate ichthyosis vulgaris, and bacne. This lotion isn't a miracle worker but it's good enough that I have already used up 2 bottles and have 4 backups, and will use it for the foreseeable future.

I have spent so many years and $$ trying to find something that helped that also did not break the bank. The Korean scrubby towels (not the green …

Edit:

Ok this is HG at all times now that I figured out how to make it work for me.

I apply this to clean skin as usual. But before it dries down, I apply Herbivore Lapis oil (mostly squalane oil). It locks in a lot of moisture. I have to do it while it's still wet because otherwise it feels like I'm locking out the moisture. Hope that this tip helps …

Edit: Dropped down to 3 lippies. It's a good occlusive but my skin got dehydrated when using this as my sole moisturizer. Will not repurchase. This is an ok emergency moisturizer, but not for the long-term.

DiaryofAiko's experience sounds just like mine. I use this as a facial moisturizer. It feel light, and weightless once absorbed. It has a strong scent that …

Edit: Dropped down to 3 lippies. The fragrance kind of bothers my eyes, and I no longer like using it as a hand cream because it's SO TACKY even after it dries down. Will not repurchase.

I'm not going to dwell on what other people have said: thick texture, herbal smell, awesome price. For reference, I have dry and dehydrated skin.

Here is how I use …

Edit: I still love love love the color, but I got tired of the transfer and with it disappearing when I eat, since it's not a MLBB color. Dropped one lippie and will not repurchase.

Amazing product in beautiful packaging. This is flattering and fuss-free enough for me to wear it out on a daily basis!

I was very red-shy but I was determined to find one …
