I have been using for months and this is about as strong a product as I’ve found at the drug store. I wake up pink some mornings - gentler than Retin-a but still an active product. So it might be a bit much for sensitive skin or take some time to build tolerance. Not sure it’s doing much for deeper lines, but I see a change in my sunspots and overall texture.

I am not sure how I feel about this stuff. On me, it is dewy and I love how moisturized and hydrated it makes me look. I think it would be too much for oily skin. It slightly evens out my ruddy skin tone. It does nothing for my red nose, seems to slide right off a second after I put it on. The dropper bottle leaks every time i close it and I have to wipe it down each morning. PITA. But it creates …Read more

I have dry, very thin (thyroid/weight loss/stress) fine hair. I used this for a few years and it was...fine. It gave me a teeny bit of body and cleaned up my ends with a little curve. But I recently bought the more expensive revlon version of this and the revlon one makes my hair much shinier and smoother. The revlon one also has a high setting that gets much hotter than this one, FYI.

Thanks to some advice on the MUA skincare board, I tried this. I am using it at night on 50-ish skin during a bitterly cold winter, and I wake up with plump and soft skin. I haven't tried it under makeup (might not absorb fully enough for that?), but as a night cream, it is dewy and protective. The little lines around my eyes look more hydrated.

I did my research and watched a video about using this stuff, but I wish I had saved my money. Hair is totally flat after blow drying, no lift, no fullness, nada.

I have ultra thin, fine hair. This did give it body, in a terrible way - sticky and pouf-y, very matte (which is what the bottle says, so at least there is full disclosure). No waves, just frizz. I had better luck with Verb sea texture cream (don't love the smell of Verb, and it lingers, but it does not weigh down my thin and fine hair).

This has a creamy texture, a subtle glow, and it lasts all day on me. I have this in Pearl, which could be too frosty for some. It has the teeniest undertone of pink/opalescent, but mostly looks pearlescent. I have zero makeup skills and even I can handle putting this across cheekbones, inner eye, nose stripe, etc. without looking like a disco ball. I have Nars the multiple in copacabana and I …Read more

I am tired of spending the money for Buxom and Fresh, much as I love their Dolly lip polish and Fig balm. So I picked up Baby Lips in Playful Purple at the drugstore. A light swipe creates a dark berry stain and a nicely moisturized-looking mouth. A heavier hand creates a more Rihanna-looking true purple lip. I love both colors. The moisture lasts and the price cannot be beat. I am older and this …Read more

I get flaky around the nostrils and under my nose. This solved that problem after 2 nights. My whole face feels softer than it has in months. I am acne prone and this hasn't broken me out, but it does feel pretty occlusive. In spite of its creamy thickness, I don't wake up with puffy eyes from retaining water underneath eyes, which typically happens when I use a night cream.
