I used to use this product several years ago. I like the scent but otherwise I stopped using it because it always felt so heavy on my skin and never blended. It also made me appear washed out and pale and I'm olive complected!

Fortunately I never broke out or experienced irritation but that wasn't enough for me. The straw that broke the camels back was I went out for a fun …

This is a wonderful product. It is soothing, has a refreshing feel and a very light earthy scent which I love.

This toning mist is especially useful for dry, chapped or irritated skin but I'm sure any skin type would love it. Also, it's really good for a nice pep after travelling.

I will admit that this product doesnt do anything spectacular but I do love the way …

I love this mask. It's a little on the pricey side for a small tube but a little goes a long way so mine has lasted for a long time.

I typically let this set on my skin for 15-20 minutes and then rinse with cool water every few weeks. I love the way it removes all the surface oil from my skin and leaves my skin looking refreshed and bright.

As an individual product …

I grew up on St. Ives Apricot Scrub and ejoyed it for many years. However, as I have matured and suffered through sensitive acne prone skin I have had to discontinue use of this product.

The ground apricot shells tend to be too abrasive on my skin and leave me looking red and flushed. After using this product I look as if I have an outbreak of Rosascea. Not a good look in my …

This product is wonderful for extremely dry, chappped or chaffed skin. I have painful eczema on my hands that sometimes cracks and bleeds. Other moisturizers really dont go far enough to help soften and heal as this one does.

Admittedly this is an oil base so of course it is heavier than a typical cream or body butter. Also you're going have a greasy sheen wherever you apply it …

The moisture capacity of this product was at best fair. I bought this when I ran out of my first choice lip moisturizer and had to ride it out until it finished because finances were tight.

As I said, it moisturized the lips just fine. The problem that I had with this is the mint flavor. The mint in this lip moisture was way too strong. It overpowered gum and i felt like I was wearing …

I really wanted to love this product but when I had a particularly bad acne flareup it didn't provide any of the soothing or healing properties that are tauted.

If you washed your face clean and patted it it dry then used this tea tree you not only have the redness of the acne but a slick dot of tea tree where you applied the product clearly visible. As such I was never truly able …

The best thing about this Grapefriut cleanser is the scent. It smells citrusy and clean which I'm sure will go over well for most people.

Unfortunately the product doesnt work as well as it smells. After just one use my skin became extremely dry and irritated especially around my mouth. I applied my favorite moisturizer afterward to soften my skin and restore it's moisture …

Sep/11/2009

I'm on the fence with this product. I have used it in the past to mediocre results. The individual packets of warming cleanser is a great idea but I'm afraid it really doesnt do much else.

First off the cleanser warms on contact but fades away just as fast which in my opinion is really not long enough to throroughly warm and loosen the impurities from the skin. As you …

This is a great product. It does an excellent job of cleansing my skin thoroughly without stripping it of it's natural moisture. I have sensitive skin so a gentle product is really important to me and this one delivers.

I especially love how it leaves a smooth moisturized finish on my skin. I would absolutely continue to buy and recommend to others.
