I tried this as a gentle alternative to shampoo. It does not do it for me. My hair does not feel particularly clean or conditioned. I do follow directions and rinse well but it is just not impressive. After a few uses my scalp was not happy/was irritated.
It does smell nice-kinda caramel like. I have fine, dry wavy hair for reference.

My hair is quite fine,wavy and dried out from box coloring. It felt like straw and was dull no matter what I tried including aphogee treatment. I also shed a lot. I got this after a haircut at an Aveda salon. It brought my hair back to life! It is soft and shiny and not weighed down. It also has not irritated my scalp which is pretty sensitive. The price is up there but I do not have to use much …Read more

Like the elf blushes- decent pigment and packaging. This color is actually more of a dupe for nars deep throat than any other color. Gave mine away once I realized that as I have deep throat. This is not a dead on dupe for quality like nars but pretty close and only $3.

Tried this on at sephora and it is much too orange for me:(. I am around a nc 20 but not very warm. Too bad as I am interested in bb cream since I have drier skin. Some of the skin benefits sound great as does th ss protection!

Love the color and I am not a pink sparkle kind of girl. My problem is the lasting power. This stuff will not stay on my nails no matter what I do. It comes off in large chips or peels off, with or without base and/or top coats. Sad because this np is not cheap and I do think this is very pretty.

This is a great nude pink gloss. I did not think I'd ever be able to find a nude type lip color. They looked too brown or too dead. This is lovely. It is not flat and is a pink brown nude. Looks natural but more subdued than my lips. I do have color to my lips so this runs more pink on me but not unnatural frosty or baby pink. Great find and I think it is neutral enough to go with many …Read more

I bought this in 16 which is a pinky orange but settled into a mlbb color for me. Unfortunately it went on very unevenly and lasting power was poor. I tried it with lipbalm and after lip exfoliation but they were no help. Had to return it because for that price I expected a much smoother, better wearing product.

I bought this in hopes of finding a good lighter weight moisturizer with spf. This burns the hell out of my face! And if it accidentally gets near my eye--serious ouch! Sad to say this does not work at all for me due to the irritation it causes. Aldi's Q10 moisturizer worked much better for me--unfortunately it has no spf.

I am surprised that this works decently for me as far as brightening my skin and reducing small breakouts. I also use Retin A and have sensitive somewhat dry skin. This does mkae my skin a little red for a few minutes after using it (possibly from using a cotton ball on my face/rubbing) but does not sting. I use a little rose toner after using this to help the redness go away quicker. My skin is …Read more
