I really like this product for radiance, I feel that my products absorb better after I've used it, and it helps to combat and dry out acne. It gives a nice radiance the next day if I use it at night, and you get a good amount of applications for $30 CDN. I definitely recommend this alternated with a face mask (Boscia Luminizing Black Mask is a fave) and all your dull dead skin will be gone!

I like the TiGi Rockaholic dry shampoo better than this one, however, this one does its job too. Doesn't leave a white residue, and absorbs oil. I find I go through one can fairly quickly, another reason I like the TiGi one (bigger can.) But overall it is one of the best on the market.

I love this dry shampoo, better than Oscar Blandi and Klorane. You get a big bottle, and you can spray it directly on the hair and it blends nicely. You may need more blending for brunette hair, but this has become a staple in my haircare routine. It definitely does its job, and I get sad when it gets low. Recommend!

This product is marketed as a deep conditioner, but I use it as an everyday conditioner. Sometimes I feel it is almost too rich that it doesn't even penetrate my hair and makes detangling more difficult, but for 6 dollars I can't complain. Doesn't compare to Kerastase and Bumble and bumble products, but one of the best drugstore conditioners I've used.

I have the shower gel of this, and I bought it at Winners for about 10 bucks. It has a nice evening musky scent, and it was nice for in the shower. I would not pay full price for it as its not a to-die-for scent, but the shower gel was nice and I looked forward to using it. The scent also lasted awhile on my skin even after getting out of the shower.

This cleanser smells wonderful, kind of sweet. However, the foam was too thin for me to use it with my Clarisonic. It cleanses nicely, and I think it would be ideal for sensitive skin that doesn't usually get oily or break out. It didn't overdry my skin which was nice, and I would recommend it for normal skin types

I do not have a problem with dark spots/radiance overall, just a few acne scars on my skin that are not very obvious. However, I did notice that this gave a nice glow to my skin after 2-3 weeks of use. If you're looking for a serum for the sake of using one and don't have any major skin concerns I would recommend this product. If you're looking for something more targeted I …Read more

This serum mattified nicely under my moisturizer, but I didnt like the awkward square shaped bottle, makes it hard to get it all out. I got the sample sized one that lasted me about a week, so I didn't notice any longterm benefits or changes in my skin, but it gave a nice overall matte smooth finish on my skin. Probably wouldn't buy the whole product, but it may be worth giving a try.

I loved this cleanser and it did its job well, it was creamy enough to use with my Clarisonic brush, yet not so rich that it didn't lather. However, the scent is so strong that when it got near or in my eyes it burned really badly. I would recommend Lancome's Creme Radiance cream cleanser, its cheaper and doesn't have the strong scent and does EXACTLY what this one does.

This is a nice lightweight lip balm that can be used under lipsticks. However, the moisturizer doesn't last very long and I find I have to apply a lot and reapply often to get enough moisture for my lips. It comes in a beautiful black and gold lacquered lipstick tube, typical of Chanel. However, for its price at $35 CND I would not repurchase. I would recommend Dior Lip Glow instead, as you …Read more
