meh. I don't understand the hype. I've had this for almost a year now and I'm trying to use it up. PROS: lasts forever, has SPF, has coffeeberry (antioxidant). CONS: expensive (lasts forever kind of offsets this), don't find the coverage all that great (I guess it reduces some of the redness in my cheeks, definitely doesn't cover acne scars), shimmer (makes oily skin …Read more

This is the first primer I've ever purchased. I've received samples from Sephora with my VIB and points but never liked the feeling of silicone primers on my skin. I took the leap, after reading reviews for weeks, and got it. I love it! It feels great on the skin, lets my make up last so much longer than not wearing a primer, adds a touch of extra hydration but doesn't make me …Read more

Received a sample of this in the discovery kit and have only used it twice. I like it, it doesn't irritate my skin. I do notice my skin to be soothed, softer, brighter and just overall nice. I'm prone to break outs and redness in my cheeks and this tones it all down, makes it less apparently/reduces. The smell and texture is so weird. It smells horrible (yet it's tolerable for me) …Read more

Received a sample of this in the discovery kit and really like it. I currently use the 100% pure pineapple scrub which I adore as well. I've used the pangea scrub maybe 3 times now and it feels so nice. It exfoliates really well without irritating my skin and just leaves my skin smooth and glowy. The smells is..blah..I personally don't like it. Smells like sweet dirt (don't ask). I …Read more

I received a sample of this in the Pangea discovery kit for normal to combination kit. I was pleasantly surprised by it. Thought I was going to hate it based on the reviews, but, I use this after removing my make up and in the morning. I'm not sure how well it removes make up and I haven't tried that yet. I love the texture and consistency of it. A tiny bit goes a long way and it just …Read more

I received a rather generous sample of this product. Decided to give this a shot because I loved the mousse texture, it's natural and received great reviews. When my skin was super dry, this did not work at all! It definitely highlighted every single flake on my face. Finally my face is back to it's combination state (slightest flake here and there but nothing major) so I gave it …Read more

I purchased a small sample of this (1 fl oz) just to try it since I love the body wash. I dont..like this...The texture is totally milky (as the name states), it almost feels like you're rubbing water on yourself and I'm totally sick of the smell after the 3rd use. It does moisturize and the smell totally lingers but I will not purchase a larger bottle.

EDIT - MARCH 7/12 -decided to return this. While I stand by my previous review of the coverage being good, I can't handle the creasing. I find myself constantly blending it out throughout the day. What I didn't like about Bobbi Brown is that it creased like a champ as well as irritated my under eye area. Made it itchy, gave me milia, etc etc. This one didn't irritate..just …Read more

Bought this hoping it would be a light and fresh scent, it's not. I agree with the reviews below about the scent. As for the cream itself, it's definitely thick and greasy but I like it for my really dry areas. I use this at night on my feet, elbows and knees. I won't repurchase this only because the scent is way too much for me AND I've started loving the use of coconut …Read more
