EVCO has been one of the ONLY products that has completely gotten rid of those unsightly tiny bumps on the back of my arms. (The other product was a tube of $30 AHA body lotion that lasted less than a month.) For the price and quantity of product I will definitely stick with the EVCO. When I first got it I scooped some out with a spoon and put it in a smaller container (a small tub of some Sally …Read more

This worked great for me. I have extremely oily, breakout prone skin and this is one of the only concealers that I could put right on a blemish and not only did it completely hide it, but it didn't make me breakout more. It is pricey, but it lasts a long time and is very much worth it.

Not a favorite. The color selection leaves much to be desired. When I was really tan and as dark as I'll ever be in my life the Tan shade worked, but that was only briefly. I agree with another poster who said that the first 2 shades look the same in the bottle, but neither of them work on my skin. The 1st is too light, the 2nd too dark. Also it makes me look shiny, which I don't …Read more

This worked great at getting rid of those little bumps on the backs of my arms...for the first time EVER that skin is smooth and bump free. Just don't use it on your face...AHA + scrub = red, irritated, itchy face for several days...but my skin was super smooth!! I don't know what I was thinking...I'd rub my face on sandpaper if I got the chance and no one was watching. Anyway, I …Read more

This is one of the only mattifiers that has ever worked for me. I've tried almost EVERYTHING...but within several hours I'd use up an entire blotting paper for just my T-zone. The only complaint I have is that it's a small bottle and it gets little crusties on the top of the bottle from dried product. But it works really great on my extremely oily skin. I also like that you can …Read more

This is a really great product and does exactly what it says. It's a little pricey, but it should last a while. I only use it once a week, if that...if I use it more then my skin gets a little sensitive. Just be SURE to NOT use the AHA complex the same or next day...I only made that mistake once. It really refines your pores over time and you'll notice the difference immediately.

Even though I'm working at a Merle Norman store and should love this product, I think it's just okay. My issue is with the color selection and the shimmer. The coverage is okay, not as good as BE for me, but I have to mix two different shades to get a shade that somewhat works on my skin. And I have very oily skin so the last thing I need is shimmer on my face. I look shiny all day …Read more

Aug/29/2007

I don't know what it was but this did not agree with my skin at all. Even though I put it on after I showered/exfoliated, it still came out blotchy. Probably because several hours after putting it on I noticed it was just coming off my skin...like if you have wet, peeling skin. I guess it just sat on top of my skin and didnt absorb. The smell was also a little much for me, but I'm …Read more

This is one of the best gradual self tanners I've used. I worked my way through college at a high end tanning salon, and it is comparable to the products we sold; actually better for myself since I am so fair-everything we sold was for people who already had some color. The shimmer can be a little much, but I put it on so sparingly and only every other day, so it doesn't get out of …Read more
