I’ve been using this for about a year and a half...since it arrived on the market in late 2016. I like it, but I don’t love it. I’ve used everything from Le Mer to SK-II. I like this much better than those brands/products, and I keep purchasing this, because I like it and it makes my skin look amazing. My skin glows. The only reason I do not give this 5 stars is because we all know there is …Read more

Lotions/ Creams - Unlisted Brand - Hustle Butter - Luxury Tattoo Care

Apr/16/2018

This is not just for tatts. I’m a nurse, and I wash my hands 30-40 times a day. I cannot put hand cream on regularly, so at night I rub a bit of this on them, and when I wake up, my hands are in good condition, again. I use this on dry skin patches, you name it. It’s one of those medicine cabinet staples. Rough feet, dry cracked hands, chapped lips, elbows and knees. It’s a miracle …Read more

I figure if I should write a review about a product, it should be this stuff. I've used it for over 30 years, only discontinuing use during pregnancies, a few SD fare-ups, and a rosacea diagnosis. It's also the only product that I have used for more than 2 years. This can be some evil, wicked stuff if the strength is too high, or if used improperly. You need a good moisturiser, too …Read more

Sunscreen - Ocean Potion - FACE Potion Clear Zinc SPF 45

Mar/11/2012

I bought this in an emergency situation, and glad I did. It's not my usual sweat/water resistant sunscreen, but it held up after an hour and a half run, in the 80 degree Phoenix, winter sun. Also, it didn't cause any breakouts, and most sunscreens do that to me. Too bad the SPF is only 45. It's a thick cream that goes on white but changes to clear, after you rub it in. It …Read more

Sunscreen - L'Oreal Paris - Sublime Sun Advanced Sunscreen Liquid Silk Sunshield For Face SPF 50 [DISCONTINUED]

One word GREASY. It's greasy on me. It has an oily sheen on me. I know others have said it's not oily, but it is on me. It's a great product otherwise, and it gives the Asian sunscreens a run for their money, but it's very greasy on me. I don't have oily skin, either. I have dry skin, and I guess it just doesn't absorb well into my skin. It is very water, and …Read more

Cleansers - Boots - Botanics Organic Face Nourishing Cleanser

Aug/31/2011

Let me first say that this is only 80% organic, so I really don't consider it an organic product. I like the Botanics Super Face Balm and have bought that many times, but I was still a bit leary buying this, because I'm not a big Boots fan. I went to Target to get Weleda Wild Rose lotion cleanser, but they didn't have any, and I didn't feel like going across town to the …Read more

Let me just say that I have purchased this three times, but I won't purchase, again. There is nothing wonderful about this product. It's a nice mask, and that's about it. To use as a cleanser, I want to use half the bottle. That's my fault, because I my skin just doesn't feel clean, if I don't. I repurchased this because I wanted to like it. I just don't. …Read more

Jul/12/2011

I was really disappointed to not see a review for this. I really needed someone's opinions, and experience, with this stuff, as it is a pesticide. Ewwwww! I did not use this for scabies, but it was perscribed 'off label' for rosacea. Supposedly demodex is a secondary problem for those of us with rosacea, and I had a high demodex population according to my skin scrap. This did …Read more

This is about the shampoo, and the cream. I hate this stuff! It doesn't work for me, and actually makes my SD worse. I've read that people wash their face with this, and all I can say is OUCH! If you have sensitive skin, this could make your SD (or skin issue worse) worse, because of the sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), so proceed with caution. I have this in the 2% cream, and it still …Read more

There's a reason why this was in my grandparents bathroom cabinet, and I just rediscovered why. My grandfather swore by this stuff. I've recently been struggling with a very bad case of seborrheic dermatitis. I'm 7 months in. It gets better, and then comes back worse, then gets better, again, and then comes back with a vengeance. I had been eyeing this at Walmart for quite …Read more
