This product was at first great: went on beautifully, was easy to apply, etc. Then after about 6 months it dried up! All this leftover eyeliner went to waste. I was really disappointed. I've now switched over to Bobbi Brown's gel/cream eyeliner. I'm hoping that I'll have better luck with that.

I don't know why this product has gotten such bad reviews - I think it is great for creating a dramatic effect. Sure it sometimes does clump a bit, but I fix that by getting a plain eyelash brush and going over my eyelashes. I use this in combination with Madame CurlCurl for an even more dramatic effect. I'll probably buy again, although I'm always in search of a better mascara …Read more

I use this product as my "evening" foundation, as I find it a bit too heavy for daytime. I love it though for when I'm going out at night - my face shows up beautifully in photos. It's hard to not look photogenic! I've read some reviews about it making people break out, I haven't found that yet, although I'm only using it at most twice a week. The packaging …Read more

GREAT PRODUCT! It's no miracle worker, but then let's be realistic here, no product is going to cure every pimple. But this product has helped clear up my skin heaps. I'm on antibiotics and use clinique's anti-blemish solutions also, but differin still makes a difference. Will keep using till I'm acne-free!

This product does moisturise quite well, and some acne inflammation has settled a little. However, I'm giving it a rating of 3 due to a lack of "wow" factor. This product is ok. I probably wouldn't buy it again because I'd like to explore other night creams, hopefully I'll find something that brightens/clears up my complexion more (if such a product exists). However …Read more

Great product for sensitive skin. My whole family uses this stuff. Also love how you don't have to use it with water if you don't want to, instead you can apply it onto your face and wipe it off with tissues. I gave it a 4 because it doesn't take off my make-up always, but then I guess that's why you buy make-up remover. Will definitely keep repurchasing this.

I don't understand the hype about this product. It's moisturising quality does not compare to other lip balms out there, and it's staying power is even worse. Not repurchasing.

This product is AMAZING!! I've only been using it for a week (doing the recommended 3 scrubs per week) and already my acne scars have faded a huge amount, and even the deeper marks seem more smooth. I used to wear foundation everyday and can now get away with using just a bit of concealer. Will definitely buy again. And the best part is: I only paid $6 AUS for it!

I usually prefer products with more coverage because of my acne, but when my skin is good, this is GREAT to use alone! You can also use it as a primer under foundation. For a more natural look, I use concealer and then put this over the top. It really evens out my skin tone, and you can barely tell I'm wearing any makeup.
