Im asian w olive tan skin. Recently developed melasma and have been desperately trying to cover it up, especially the discoloration above my lip like a mustache. Tried so many concealers but can still see the grey underneath. Ugh. Recently read that orangey/salmon colored concealer will cancel out the blue in the discoloration; picked this up and works like a dream! It's a little dry, but …Read more

Got the vitalize peel three weeks ago -- didn't love it. The price was reasonable and less expensive than the Vi Peel, but it also wasn't as effective. I had mild peeling but I basically peeled so little that it didn't seem worth it at all; it didn't help with my hyperpigmentation either. Unfortunately it also made me have a massive breakout on my chin -- it was as though a …Read more

I can't write a full review because I've only been using it a week, but it doesn't smell terrible/ dirty socks like everyone says. They must have reformulated it to address that. Now it smells good although in an artificial way.

Got the vi peel last week. Had the peel applied Wednesday afternoon, went to dinner Thursday with a bit of a bronzed look and skin was a little tight but not too uncomfortable, then started peeling Friday through Monday. I would say the worst peeling was Saturday and Sunday, but by Monday was looking much better.

Overall I am so glad I did the peel. I am half asian half spanish and am …

Love this concealer! Beautiful coverage, creamy consistency, good color match to my olive-y tan-ish skin. Splurged a few years ago, then trying to save money tried other brands, but alas, everything else paled in comparison. Finally bit the bullet and went back. They need a customer loyalty program as I'm there!

Really dry formula creating tons of flakes and clumps. Maybe it was past its expiration date and Duane reade was trying to get rid of it, but regardless, it shouldn't be THAT dry coming out brand new and air tight.

Opt for something else, ladies...

Initially loved, but somehow it's turned on me: serious teeny bubbles all over that make my nails feel like sandpaper. It may be because I put it in the refrigerator with my other polishes that it had a different effect possibly, but I see that other ladies have had the same complaint.

That said, it is good for keeping nails strong. If I can find another hardener I'd change …

So far tried it only a few times but already love it. I was looking for something light without the white/gray cast that would absorb easily and not break my acne prone skin out, as well as give me at least 50 spf. This seems to be the answer as it quickly absorbed and initially had a minimal shine which abated shortly after. It comes out of the can like yellowy foam but spreads clearly. I …Read more
