Got a sample of this with my perfume purchase and I've been using it every night for a week. Overall, I don't notice an improvement in my skin. I've gotten better results with Avalon Organics Vitamin C Cream and St Ives Renewal Cream (with AHA and BHA). Not only are those two more effective, they are much cheaper. I don't mind paying for quality but this is not good quality …Read more

This is best on oily acne-prone skin. Very effective!

TIP:
If you bought it in the tube (not the tub) and it seems to have dried out or finishes, cut the tube in half, add enough water to make it return to its original consistency and scoop it all out. I did that and I've gotten 1 extra year of use out of that tube! There is a LOT of product left inside! I'm very glad I …

African black soap is amazing. It really did a number on my acne. I'm a skincare junkie and this is my cleanser of choice for my face and body. I have oily, acne-prone skin and I noticed a difference after the first time I washed with it. The price is simply great because a little goes a long way. Add to that the fact that it's all natural and includes several skin nourishing …Read more

HG. It looks totally natural and gives a matte, slightly soft focus effect. I'm tremendously oily so my oil reappears after a few hours but I'm very pleased still because this is AMAZING at setting makeup. My undereye concealer always used to crease on me, before I used this powder. I used other powders in the past and it would crease, but with this I get no creasing. HG.

I'm so happy I bought this. Thanks MUA! I'm NC40 and it's a lovely nude red on me. So gorgeous! It's too bad this is LE, I would totally repurchase this. Lovely casual lippie for any occasion that would look great on anyone!

Smells like a generic sweet vanilla, with spicy incense undertones. I would not rank this among the most beautiful scents I have ever smelled, but it's cozy and pleasant, very feminine and people will like the way you smell. It gets the job done.

Ladies, don't bother waiting to pay a fortune one day for the mac version. This is incredible. It's very tapered and sleek, like the mac version. I was afraid that it would be fluffier or larger than the mac version but it is just as dense and just as tapered. The photo does not do it justice. Save your money and quit waiting and just get this. Temptalia loves the 226 (she prefers it …Read more
