I've used this about 4 times now so I feel I've had enough experience to give an accurate review from my perspective.

My hauir is thick, scraggly curly from crown down and almost afro with tight curls from crown and above. This crazy difference makes my hair a complete pain to deal with. People that don't know what I go through to get a good hair day think I have the …

I was so hopeful this would work out for me but sadly I will not be repurchasing!

I have slight milia along with blue/purple dark circles that I'm desperate to be rid of. I'm really disappointed this didn't work out. It's thick, and yes you don't need much product but no matter how much I apply (little or a lot) it looks fake. Doesn't blend in well at all …

I can't believe I'm 40 this year and I'm only just realizing this product exists!!!!!!!

I've had oily lids my whole life and as a result just never bothered that much with eye make up because 2 hours after application it's gone.This stuff is the BEST!

For the price, the durability and the fact that it just plain works, run, don't walk to your …

Oh how I'm so very happy to have found this product! I'm always on the search for a great sunscreen and I tend to use the physical over chemical as I usually break out. NO breakouts with this product after a week and I'm usually affected within 24 hrs.

I've used it for over a week and at Disney where the sun was blazing. I echo pretty much what all of the good …

I love this product. I've tried so many sunscreens and this is wonderful. I'll list why:
Price - can't beat it
Effectiveness - it works - I used this at the beach and my face and neck got no sun from this
Bonus - works as a primer
This is a thick product and when you initially put it on you will freak out. It comes out like a paste and is very white. But put on …

I don't get why this product has so many good reviews. It's done NOTHING for me. I've used it diligently for 6 months and I continue to get acne - large pimples that take forever to clear up!! I back off and my skin clears up, I start again and my skin flares up. Interestingly I don't get the peeling or flaking that comes with a retinol product. Even so I will forget about …Read more

Oh I REALLY wanted to like this product but unfortunately after 2 days of use I developed clogged pores and 4 large pimples on my forehead and chin. I rarely ever break out and when I do it's usually related to new face products.

Pros:
Light and very easy to apply. Product is very runny
Goes on light and sinks in immediately.
Doesn't sting, ball up, or leave a …

I can honestly say this is the WORST OTC dye I have ever used. I uaully use Garnier but I thought i would give this a shot. I have dark brown, almost black hair and I went for the 'Suddenly Sable' darkest brown color.

I was a little annoyed at the price but I figured it must be worth it due to the time I would save with it being only a 10 minute processing time. How WRONG I …

This is a very good sunscreen and one of my favorites! I've written other reviews of other sunscreen products on MUA but they are all older reviews and no longer relevant. For the past year I've used this and I absolutely LOVE it. I have pale, somewhat olive & combination skin and I mix this with whatever liquid foundation I'm using at the time and it's PERFECT! For the …Read more
