HG product! I've been using the whole regimen for about 6 months and my skin is the clearest it's been since puberty! I've tried everything---from Accutane (TWICE), birth control, antibiotics, retin-a, tazorac, AHA, BHA, tea tree oil, essential oils, the oil cleansing method, Apple cider vinegar, everything and anything under the sun. I've been suffering from moderate-severe …Read more

I love this scent and I really didn't think I would based on the description alone. I love musk based soft floral perfume scents, which is essentially impossible to find in a perfume that is naturally derived and doesn't have the elusive chemically derived "fragrance" as the main ingredient. I've been using perfume fragrance oils for years and my favorites are Egyptian …Read more

Eh, I'm not impressed with this one so far. I've been using it every week for about 6 weeks or so and it doesn't seem to do much. I have very acne prone, oily skin with a lot of post acne scarring. It seems to make existing acne get darker for some reason. I find I get better results from the Mandellic Acid Peel and I can use that one twice a week.

I've been …

I have very oily, acne prone skin with a lot of post acne scarring and hyperpigmentation. I've been trying to help get rid of the scars for years and to get my acne under control. I've been on two rounds of accutane and still break out! So, my skin was going through a freak out phase and I applied this peel once and a week later, my skin was so, so much better. It really helps to calm …Read more

This stuff is too heavy for people with very oily skin, so it seems to be best suited for combination skin types. When I apply it, it never fully soaks in and I can feel the product on my skin hours after applying it. So, I can't use it in the morning because it's too oily. However, I use it at night and it doesn't seem to break me out, which is a good thing, and it may slightly …Read more

I'm going to try to be brief. I've been looking for a simple, light day moisturizer that helps with acne prone skin. Ideally, I want to find all of this in a cream that also serves to control oil. Here's the breakdown:

Pros:
1.Does not break me out at all----may actually help with breakouts (I'm the clearest I've been in a LONG time)
2. Does not …

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this product yet! I've been using it as a my face cleanser at night for years because it's the best cleanser to wash off makeup, oil, dirt, and pollution that's built up from walking around all day. The consistency is very liquidy and thin, so I pour it into a travel sized bottle that makes it into a foam consistency so it's more …Read more

I just want to start off by saying I'm a huge fan of Lumiere, in general and LOVE their Veena Velvet MMU. However, I wanted to try the Flawless Finish to see if it would have better coverage for my acne prone, scarred skin so I ordered a sample kit. This foundation is god awful! To me, it really doesn't cover that much better, if any better at all than Veena Velvet does and the FF looks …Read more

RIS and used for about a week. One of the only TM's that doesn't exacerbate oily skin!! However, I need more coverage for my acne prone, scarred skin. The honey in this product is also great for sensitive, acne prone skin types and seems to help with current blemishes. I do really love this product, though. Definitely would recommend it for someone who isn't looking for a lot of …Read more
