My skin is dry. Really really dry. I have dark undereyes and some pigmitation problems I like evening out. I'm not after the uber-madeup look, in my home/work environment it would look really out of place. I just want everything more even. To look like I wasn't trying at all, I just woke up healthier.
I use this as a concealer, sort of. I put a bit on the areas I want to even out …

I was looking for something to even out my complexion. Something sheer that matched my skintone and works well with my very dry skin - no dry patches, no mattifying anything.
This is sheer enough and buildale enough and has decent color range for a more olive skintone, which some companies just don't have. BUT it broke me out. I have dry skin that tends to break out with cetain …

I decided to try "the littles" to see what the hype was all about. This one didn't do anything for me. Nice consistency, didn't break me out but it didn't do anything either.
I have dry skin and an intense hydration boost sounded like a good idea but... that didn't really happen. May work for someone with oilier skin but I think oily skin can do with a good …

This is the first vitamin C I tried. I assume there are better products out there but I don't know for sure. So please take this review with a grain of salt.
I got this to help with some dark spots. Been using it for 2 weeks so it's too early to say if this works. What i can say is that I hate applying it.
The dispenser itself is a good idea - keep the vitamin C fresh until …

Plump, hydrated skin. No breakouts, no flareups... nothing bad to say about the product itself.
I agree with other reviews that this a thicker oil - it takes longer to dry and I think I use more of it because a little doesn't go a long way.
But for someone like me that tends to have very dry skin, this oil thickness is actually a plus, especially in the winter. I remember feeling …

I have an occasional breakout. No idea why, no idea what causes it. I just know I tend to get an ugly whitehead every once in a while. As soon as I see something is starting I put this gel on as a spot treatment and the problem stops in its tracks. I put this all over my face as a preventative treatment every few days and I get fewer breakouts than ever. This thing just works for me. Highly …Read more

I always thought I had an oily scalp. These days I think I'm just allergic to some shampoos. Haven't figured out which but with some shampoos I can wash my hair twice a week and with some I'm a greasy mess after 24 hours. This one, unfortunately, is one of the latter ones.
And my hair doesn't feel clean. I think its because the shampoo contains too many conditioning …

I liked the night cream so I decided to try the day time version.
Pro:
Didn't cause a breakout (I tend to react to products and this one didn't cause any issues)
No offening perfume
Con:
This feels like pure dimethecone. Did nothing for me other than an uncomfurtable layer of sillicone on my skin. Maybe it would work as a primer under makeup but not as a …

This one is almost HG status for me. Clarifies without over drying and after a couple of months of once a week use, my hair is actually much less oily. I now use it every 2-3 of weeks if I feel its needed and I can keep washing my hair only twice a week in between. After years if being so oily I had to wash my hair every day, I love the results.
The reason its not HG for me is that it is …

Con:
I hate the smell. Seriously. I start tearing up when I put this shampoo ontop of my head. Its that strong.
The cap for the bottle broke in the first few uses.

Pro:
It works. It just does. I tend towards an oily scalp that's sensitive to a lot of products and this shampoo just balances things out. I feel more comfurtable, wash my hair a bit less frequent and I …
