This product really cannot be worn under makeup,or even at night,for me.
It remains sticky and gritty and I cannot possibly see putting anything over it
without it being a disaster,and it would rub off onto my pillowcase if I used it
at night.

That said,I have found a use for it. If I am home during the day,I will put it on as
a mask and leave on …

Masks - Philosophy - Purity Made Simple Mask

Jul/28/2018

I always have Purity cleanser on hand so I thought I would give this a try.
It's ok,exfoliates well,but nothing special,and sometimes a bit drying
I have been slapping it on for a few minutes before showers..it's thick,so kind of
hard if you try to rinse off in sink
Not terrible,but expensive for what it is.
Won't repurchase ( I got a deal on a supersize on …

Bought this in Perfect Berry as a throw in on an order..
It gives my lip a nice berry color flush...MLBB on me
Have to apply often,as the lasting power is not great,but for the price
it's ok for me
Not quite sure I would repurchase.....may change my mind later

I am one of the ones still seething and confused by the discontinuation of my HG Basic mascara. I tried this a while ago and didn't like it (was not spot on for the Basic) but recently decided to try again,,,
I guess since its been a long time since I used the Basic,so I was a lot happier with it..
My lashes are blond and fine,and I cannot use mascaras that …

Scrubs - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

I can't get this work as a mask as it doesn't stick evenly but it works great as a scrub...
I wet my face first and apply a little,the sugars don't dissolve so you have to be careful not to scrub too hard....
Philosophy had a facial sugar scrub/mask years ago I loved,it was an oiler base tho...this is a decent substitute and you can't beat the price!

Feb/01/2015

I have never had luck with brushes for any liquid-foundation....bought a few ..high to low end and always went back to non latex sponges...

Recently I have decided to purge a lot of my brushes,and replace a few. I have been using my Japonesque large powder brush,flat eyeshadow brush and Mineral Makeup brush for years,and felt my Mineral brush needed replacement (had the old brown …

My teeth are the victim of heredity,not the whitest,and very sensitive...plus when I was younger I had my four front teeth capped,and they were toned to match..
Over time,coffee and cola had made them even duller...
I have tried many whitening products with no result....picked up a small tube of this I saw in a wierd drugstore years ago and bought it because I read Liz Taylor …

Most moisturizers drive me nuts...I can FEEL them on my skin and end up washing my fave again....have even gotten up in the middle of the night to do this...
Tried this on a whim.....LOVE IT...
I have sensitive skin,prone to redness and this is a godsend...I have been using this at night and alternating with my Alpha Hydrox Retinol ResQ and it's a perfect combo for my …

I have tried this twice on my fine,blond upper lip hair....doesn't do a thing for me!
I just noted the remark below about dabbing on the skin protector....will try this next time....

I got a 2pack of this for $3.90 at BJs...

I will update next time I try it...but so far...no good for me

Update....this does not work for me .....

Cheap and exfoliates as well as high priced scrubs...I keep this in my bathroom cabinet and use anytime I was my face...
Classy looking tube too!

FYI....CHANGED MY RATING ON THIS BECAUSE I FIND THE NEWER ONES ARE HARD TO APPLY AND DRY OUT QUICKLY
