Hi - I recently purchased this item off eBay in Medium after reading all the great reviews on MUA....and I completely agree! I have tried many fake tans and bronzers - from cheap to super expensive and none give a result as natural as this. This product is not a fake tan, it a bronzer - ie. it will wash off with soap and scrubbing.

I have just purchased this in Dark and am waiting …

Great stuff! Has turned my skin around 100% although it's not so good for hyperpigmentation caused by acne scars. I think Retin A may be better for that but will include bleaching cream soon into my regime to help fade them. Had initial breakout from Week 3 to 6, which wasnt even bad (same as usually break out) and am now 100% clear apart from marks at Week 9.

Awesome mascara. Better than MAC and other department store brands. Doesn't clump after a couple of uses and really lengthens lashes. I like this in the brown/black version.

I was really scared to use this product. Because I have acne-prone skin, I do whatever I can to avoid getting pimples and trying new products is very daunting sometimes, especially when you have no idea how your skin will react.

I have to say that this product is really a great suprise. I have been using it for less than a week now and i have only got 2 pimples during that time. I …

I kind of like this foundation for one main reason. It does not clog pores! It's a really good foundation for those people who get a couple of clogged pores/pimples more often than not, although not enough coverage for those with moderate acne.

The colour is not that fantastic. It's kind of a very pinky bizarre colour. It's not that noticable but I would like a …

Not sure why anyone would put this crap on their face considering it contains sodium laureth sulfate (which is a detergent) as the third ingredient. Not only is it highly irritating and good at blocking pores, you may as well just wash your face with shampoo.

The only good thing about this product is it contains lots of glycerin for moisture.

Hi guys,

If you want to help prevent acne, you should visit acne.org and follow the Clear Skin Regimen, which also uses benzoyl peroxide but more effectively. It takes 2-3 months to fully work. I think Proactive doesnt work because both the cleanser and the lotion contains benzoyl which is far too drying and irritating for the skin. Most breakouts are caused because the skin is …

I 100% agree with the reviewer's comments below. I had been using this for a few weeks and found that it was making my skin really oily during the day, especially on my forehead. However, after deciding to cut back on wearing too much make-up, I started to use 1/4 to 1/2 of a pump of the foundation. This made a huge difference and I no longer needed to blot (maybe once in the late …Read more

I initally bought samples of this moisturiser on Ebay to try out. I have medium to oily sensitive and acne prone skin. I liked the idea that this moisturiser was designed for normal to oily skin. I did like this product when I first started using it as it moisturised my skin and controlled oil. I put the moisturiser on at night and sometimes in the morning. However, after about a week and a …Read more

I was never going to purchase this mask when it was recommended to me because i was using another clay mask that i liked in conjunction with a glycolic acid mask - but i decided to give it a go. This mask is excellent. The people at skinceuticals website actually recommended to place the Blemish Control Gel on and wait for it to dry and then place the Clay Mask on top. I leave it on for around …Read more
