I had been using Retin-a until the price I was paying jumped from $20 to $200 for the prescription. Love what Retin-a was doing for my skin but I'm not paying that much! So I switched to this Retinol product and it has been a wonderful substitute. It is NOT retin-a and I don't think this can provide the results that the prescription product does, however, this does a pretty dang good …Read more

Liquid - Koh Gen Do - Aqua Foundation

Best foundation I've found so far for my sensitive, combination skin. I purchased samples from the Koh Gen Do website so I can find the right color. I can wear NW20 in MAC foundation and the 013 in this foundation was a perfect and better match than MAC. This goes on beautifully. It is medium coverage and looks very natural. It isn't dewy or matte which is strange but in a good way …Read more

I have been on a new foundation search ever since my all time great Estee Lauder Invisible Fluid was discontinued. I purchased this in NW20. I have slight redness to cover and have combo skin. I have purchased and returned at least 6 foundations over the last 6 months and keep coming back to this one over and over again. It is watery and works best when shaken well. I put on the back of my …Read more

Gentle yet exfoliating. Don't apply the bar directly to your face. Wet hands and get soapy and apply with hands. I have sensitive skin and this doesn't irritate at all. Leaves skin squeaky clean but not dry. Love it. I'm on my 2nd bar and plan to continue purchasing.

I really had high hopes for this foundation. I read reviews here and on Beautipedia before buying and went straight away to purchase. This is a very watery lightweight foundation. If you are looking for a sheer, natural look this may work for you. I have sensitive skin and have a bit of red to cover and this not only failed to cover that, it actually seemed to make it worse. It did not sting …Read more

I'm really enjoying this foundation. It is definitely sheer to medium coverage and is slightly shiny after application but a nice powder covers that well. The foundation plus the powder gives a very natural look which is what I prefer. I find it very moisturizing without being too thick. If you are looking for a thick full coverage foundation, this is not for you. I rated a 4 only b/c I …Read more

I have combination skin and it is hard to find a foundation that moisturizes the dry spots on my face without at the same time, highlighting the oily T-zone. This one is a good balance. The stick glides on so smooth and creamy and then blends down to a natural medium coverage. It is NOT thick like I feared it may be. I put a few strokes on each side of my face, down my nose, across chin and …Read more

This is my HG mascara. It's fairly priced, stays on all day, and truly doesn't clump. This mascara goes on 'dry' not wet which I love b/c it reduces the opportunity to smudge or clump. Plus b/c it is drier, it holds curl longer than others. This doesn't flake through the day either, except when it gets time to replace. Home run from Cover Girl on this one!

Great product! Love the beautiful coverage. It is very natural and looks great. I'd give it 5 stars if I didn't feel that it contributes to a pimple or 2 each time I use it. :( I'm 45 and do not typically get pimples. It weren't so great, I'd not use it b/c of the potential for acne on occasion. I do experience more shine in the T zone when I use it but that is an …Read more

My hair is very fine and naturally curly and I get it colored to blonde quite often. I'm naturally light brown. My hair is a bit damaged due to highlighting every 6 weeks. The trick with my hair is to condition it well without it being weighed down. Given the ingredients, you'd think it would weigh fine hair down but for me, it does not. It actually does the opposite - I get quite a …Read more
