This is a tricky one to use - if layered + blended + combined with other products properly, it can indeed look pretty GOOD, but tends to get drier and drier in the next few hours. For me, at the end of the day I had dry patches peeling in random places, and this never happened before with foundations.

But if you don't do everything carefully & correctly, this looks like the …

Perhaps this works better on oily skin types - it looked completely Cakey and powdery on my well moisturized skin. Packaging is decent and ingredients are clean, did not cause sensitivity. Will not repurchase.

Yes 1 star is harsh but I am royally pissed - this thing DOES cause itching and rash like a lot of users reported on various websites, and it IS weird considering how this contains no fillers etc.

The texture itself ends up looking like scales on your face, especially in slightly less oily areas. Not only do i have hard itchy rash like patches in the middle of a work day at the office …

Bobbi Brown hit the bulls-eye with this product. It is so, so comfortable to wear with a beautiful rich pigment. Mildly sweet scent, no chemical taste.
Usually liquid lipsticks have the downfall of drying your lips out, but not this one, even if it transfers a little easier. The staying power is still very good and the texture is a hybrid between the regular drying liquid pigments, and a …

Here is what may be a loophole to the 'dry textured' look a lot of users are experiencing with this spray - If you have oilier skin/use moisturizing oils under your makeup, this spray won't make you look bad afterwards. On drier days (in deep winter) when I did not use oils on my face, and after spraying this on top of my foundation, it definitely looked unpleasant and dried …Read more

An extremely mild serum-like product that contains very few ingredients. It basically gives your skin some moisture without the additional improvement of any kind, pretty simple and utilitarian. Tried layering it with other products and it never caused any irritation/breakout, nor any skin improvement. Wouldn't repurchase.

Knock on wood, I don't have any allergies to the ingredients (seems many users did, to lanolin). The texture was alright for me too, I personally found it enjoyable since it was thick enough to moisturize, and sweet smelling/tasted nice.

The reddish tint adds a very pretty colour to your lips when you have this on, though it seems lots of people are not using it during the day …

For my hair this just did not work. Absolutely felt like it was coating the strands in something, and ended up making my hair slippery and weird once it dried.

After a few weeks my hair got coarse and dried out.

Didn't have the nourishing effects that other hair masks have and for this price it is a rip off ... Will be sticking to more organic masques.

Best hand cream I ever tried - no contest. For the price and effectiveness, it is truly worth its value. Sinks in quick and easy, non-greasy, no overpowering scent, and the moisturizing effect is phenomenal. A lot of hand creams have given me some form of itchiness or rash, but never this one. 10/10
