I really disliked this product. Here are my thoughts:
Pros: used as a second cleanser, it leaves skin dealing clean. Removes any film left from first cleanse.
Cons: where to begin...... As a morning cleanse, it leaves my skin tight, squeaky clean- bizarre for an oil cleanser. It's super thick and tough to rub in. It absolutely doesn't emulsify into a milk with water, just …

Love it! Here's why:
1. Does what it claims. Is a great emollient oil. I don't know as if it's hydrating, but it definitely soothes and protects irritated skin. I used this on raw, chapped lips (caused by a reaction related to lanolin). It helped heal faster compared to petroleum jelly.

2. Universal, all-purpose

3. Packaging- much more sanitary compared …

Such a great red polish.

Pros:

Wore about 5 days without chipping. I'm not careful, either. So for a few days it survived dishes, chores, etc.

Love the brush- small and round, great for getting up close with cuticles.

Cons:
Did start chipping in less than a week after being put on in nail salon. I've worn OPI shades that have lasted a …

I like this serum!

Pros:
Comes in dark bottle, protecting it from light.
Product is very effective- a great, lightweight hydrating serum that sinks in nicely, doesn't leave any film, and provides an extra oomph of hydration all day.
Very slightly improves the look of VERY fine lines over the course of a month. It's barely noticeable, but still, pretty good in …

OK, I really, really rolled my eyes at this one and WANTED it to fail miserably. It's flawed but it didn't fail. I'll start with CONS:

The packaging. It's stupid. Having to stand there and pump until my hand is cramped and all the product is out is so annoying. I wound up opening bottle and pouring product into my hand. It is a very light conditioner. I applied it …

There's a few glaring problems with this product. That being said I have purchased this over and over. Lets start with the pros:

Is HIGHLY effective. It: resurfaces texture/rough patches; brightens tone; reduces sebaceous filaments and hence pore size; softens skin; helps healing time of acne by half; reduces future breakouts; makes all other skin care used with it more effective; …

Treatments (Face) - Deciem - The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%

Used half the bottle and noticed ZERO change in skin. I don't care if it's cheap, it didn't work for me.

My skin: light, some pigmentation issues, dry, sensitive, prone to redness.

How is it possible that niacinamide did nothing?? I've used several products with niacinamide that have all been more effective.

Disappointing.

The biggest MEH cream I've purchased in a long time.

Pros-
Texture is nice, absorbs nicely, gives some hydration.

Packaging is great, no risk of oxidizing/spoiling.

Doesn't offend, wears well with most other skin care.

Cons-
WHY oh WHY can't Ren make a lotion without their weird citronool(sp?)/linalool fragrance?? Just leave it …

Liquid - GIVENCHY - Teint Couture Blurring Foundation Balm Broad Spectrum 15

HG foundation/base. Here's why:
1. Texture- does exactly as it claims- blurs pores without looking heavy. It gives a nice light weight coverage. I CAN'T FEEL THIS ON MY FACE!

2. Give EXCELLENT coverage for a beauty balm. It's not heavy like a foundation, spread beautifully with finger tips, does a fantastic job evening out redness and tone …
