Great product for a reasonable price. Just as good or better than many high-end conditioners. It is doing a great job of conditioning and protecting my hair, despite daily heat styling. It feels softer and I've had less breakage since I started using this. Not wild about the coconutty scent, but it doesn't linger, so no biggie. Will definitely repurchase.

Having battled acne since age 13 I feel like I've tried everything. I've come back to this after years of using other products and my skin (at age 39 still combo and acne prone) has never looked better. It is slightly drying, but less so than other BP products. Definitely an HG purchase for me.

Re the debate about whether BP cleansers are effective, I believe they are if you …

I've been using these for about a year now and they have been very effective. The combination of the Glycolic acid and Retinol (old formula) worked wonders on my skin. It became more clear and much more even. However, since they changed the formula (which now seems to mimic all the Olay towelette ingredients) they are not nearly as effective and no longer provide the same benefits for me. …Read more

I've worn this on and off for the last 10 years. It's a bit strong at first but dries down to a sweet mix of spice and soft musk. As another reviewer said - it's a bit hard to describe, so you could call it mysterious. I get compliments on it regularly. However, over the last year or so, I find that it causes me to sneeze if I wear it too many days in a row. Nevertheless, it's …Read more

Well, I wanted to love this, given all the great reviews. It's just too strong on me, even though I was careful to spray from a good distance - and it was just one spray. To me there is something a little musty and overpowering about it. By the end of the day, I couldn't wait to wash it off. The bottle looks nice on my dresser though :/ At least I got it on sale.

I love this foundation. I'd been using American Beauty's Natural Finish makeup for a while, which I really liked, but after a time I think it began to break me out. Anyway, decided to give this a whirl and I'm so impressed. Nice texture wears through the day very very well. The Neutral shade turned out to be a perfect match for me - fair with slightly yellow undertones. And three …Read more

I found this to be like the Dermalogica treatment foundation. A bit difficult to spread. Feels somewhat heavy on the skin and ultimately it made me break out after about two weeks. The shade was a good match though. Bummer.

Wanted to love this. Didn't spread very easily. Gave me good coverage, but I ended up breaking out from it after about two weeks.

Had a dreadful experience with this product. The color match done on my in the store was fine, but they buffed so much onto me that it looked like I had a plastic mask on my face. Accentuated my pores a bit and clung to some dry patches on my cheeks. The overall effect was nice and I bought some thinking that I just wouldn't apply as heavily as they did.

That night as I was …

I have to join the chorus of praise for this one. This is my HG makeup - fingers crossed. I have combo/sensitive skin that is very prone to acne and rashes. I've been using for a month and no bad reactions from this yet. It has a smooth consistency and provides good medium coverage. I apply lightly (with those cheapy latex-free makeup sponges) and this evens everything out very nicely. This …Read more
