Wow, I found this cleanser to be truly awful. I tried it on dry & wet skin and it just slided over the surface of my face. Did not remove any make-up, or cut through any oil on my face. When I tried to rinse it off, again felt slippery & worse yet, waxy. I then used a tissue & could SEE all of the stuff it did not remove. Back to reviews to see what else I can try to replace the …Read more

I bought the 32oz size & I don't find it hydrating at all. I used one whole pump per arm and my skin does not look or feel moisturized. Also bought the Sweet Orange & Bergamont Hand & Body Lotion & am disappointed with it also. Both of these products have a waxy feel to them & they just sit on top of my skin. I like the pump dispenser & thought they were well …Read more

Holy cow! I got this set on sale at Target for $8.99 and am very very happy with it. I don't know why I wasted so much time looking at other brushes when this set was so highly recommended. Everything positive has already been said - you won't be disappointed. They have also introduced a line of skincare products that I'm anxious to try.

I'm not a powder person, but I love this stuff. It's the perfect finish & keeps my face looking fresh all day. I haven't tried wearing it alone yet, just over foundation. I'm very very fair & Fair Glow is a really good match. Really nice coverage & just a hint of sparkle. No irritation or congestion problems at all. I actually like the packaging & the fan …Read more

Just when I was ready to return this I realized that my skin looks GREAT. So I think the benefits of wearing something "healthy" on my face outweigh that it's not perfect. I normally have a fair amount of congestion (oily skin & big pores) and in the last month it's barely a problem. Funny stuff...goes on a little dry, but then looks kind of muddy by the time I get to …Read more

This foundation cause horrible congestion on my forehead that I just discovered last night. I'd worn it over the summer & thought perhaps it didn't agree with me, but decided to give it another chance. Well 2 weeks later I've got a ton of blackheads on my forehead. The color match was fine for my very fair complexion and I think the packaging is great - so I gave it two …Read more

I can't believe that no one has mentioned how much mascara comes out on the wand. I have to spend 30 seconds wiping off the excess before I let it anywhere near my lashes. After I've done that (a pain) then the product is great, but for $14 I don't think I should have to do that. Going to try to return it & keep looking for that perfect drug store mascara.

Liquid - Garden Botanika - Conceal and Reveal Firming 2 in 1 Foundation

Kind of on the fence about this foundation. I love the color match (Bisque) and coverage. I bought it at a 2 for 1 sale at Ulta - but would not pay $25 for it in future. The problem is that no matter how little I put on or how well I blend it - it settles into every crease or line on my face within a few minutes. So I have to check my eye lids & underneath my eyes & around my mouth …Read more
