I've been using this on my belly and hips throughout my pregnancy to keep my skin hydrated, and really like that it moisturizes wel. It's very gentle, sinks into the skin quickly, and does not leave a greasy film. The smell is nice without being overpowering.

I do not have really dry skin, so this may not be the best choice for someone who is seeking a super moisturizing …

This does not work well for my combo skin -- it broke me out in red pimples on my cheeks and chin. I have tried using it several times, and each time I break out. I dont see any improvement in my skin's texture, either. The smell is gross, too. This didn't work for me, so I will stick with my Drunk Elephant.

Overrated, overhyped and really doesnt do a whole lot. This is supposed to brighten and correct dark circles. However, I find it doesnt have enough pigmentation to correct discololoration. The illuminating/brightening just creates a ghostly glow under my eyes. For the price, id just say no to this and buy an actual concealer.

Love this MLBB shade! It applies evenly, has good color that covers my naturally pigmented lips, wears evenly and holds up as well as more expensive brands. I like the formula a lot. The lipstick has a slight fruity smell, but nothing overpowering. I would definitely repurchase! Unlike what the poster above me says, this is a perfect MLBB shade for my fair/neutral skin tone (I do have pigmented …Read more

I'm cursed with combo skin that loves to break out at the slightest fluctuation in hormones or stress. This soap does a really nice job of cleaning and gently exfoliating without causing me to break out. It has also helped to minimize breakouts when I do get them, although it doesn't entirely prevent them. It doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or dry. After trying the generous …Read more

On my 4th jar. Gentle and effective. This is a balm that turns almost to liquid once in contact with the skin. Melts away makeup, and takes it off like a dream, even around the eyes. It does not leave my skin feeling tight or dry. This does not break me out.

I do follow up with a skin cleanser after. A definite HG product for me!!

This is a good winter foundation for my combo skin, and I'm rating it as a winter foundation. (I have tried wearing this during more humid months, and it doesn't work nearly as well -- I'll put my thoughts on summer wear down below.) I like that it's medium coverage, but with a finish that doesn't look caked on or emphasize texture. It also is one of the better matches …Read more
