Meh. Not for Fair Skin! :/
I was searching for a more natural foundation that would provide good coverage yet not settle into my fine lines, and while this foundation did live up to both of those standards, sadly it did not have a shade that matches well with my fair skin. I tried the fairest color in the line but even that had too much yellow in it. I wish I'd read the other review that recommended not using this for pink undertoned skin before I bought a bottle. : / I couldn't tell in the store, but once I got home I could see that this makeup is not for me. I wish Korres would make a shade for pale skin because I loved the "slip," feel, coverage and the natural ingredients! I would recommend this for gals with olive tones!

I bought the sample sizes of the shampoo and conditioner to give this line a shot. I have very long, straight hair that is chemically dyed and that is dry, prone to flyaways. I've used it for 2 weeks now, shampooing every 2 days as usual. While I feel the conditioner is okay, the shampoo still dries my hair out. I still have to use quite a bit of other products to get my hair to behave, so my search for a great, smoothing and moisturizing shampoo

Not quite as good as a professional can do, but good.
Let me preface by saying that I've had many professional facials that included microdermabrasion; in fact, a year after a dog bite to my left cheek healed, I had a series of 6 that *really* reduced the appearance of the scar. After that, I was a true believer in microdermabrasion, and would have at least 1 treatment every season to turn over the dead cells. When I began nursing school, though, I could no longer afford the expense; my sweet mama bought me the Neutrogena home micro system as a gift and I like it. My skin stays clear and awesomely smooth with the home system. I give it 8 stars because like I said - almost as good (but almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades!). I plan on getting the pro tx every season again now that I'm a working RN, but I'll continue to use Neutrogena's. Tip: I use the foam pads 2 - 3 times before they wear out. Less waste, less money for the refills.

A treat for the lips!
This is my favorite high-end lip balm. I use the clear, which when applied looks like gloss minus the gunky feel. I often apply this over lipstick to get my gloss on. It moisturizes the lips and protects them from even harsh summer sun of the Southeast. Plus the fragrance is sweet without being cloying. Love it! My only complaint is the price. At $25, I can buy 5 of a lower end balm like Burt's Bees. But I still buy this because it's glossier than Burt's and I love the scent.

So good for your skin
I bought this or my son when he was a baby and quickly discovered that it's good for my skin, too! I use it when my hands or feet are super dry, and I'm a RN who washes my hands a gazillion times a day, so if it helps my hands you know it's the good stuff. In addition, calendula is known for its healing properties; I used this on my son's eczema and it cleared it up in a jiffy, when even prescription creams didn't work. I also use it on my face during the winter at night to take care of dry patches. I highly recommend this and other products by Weleda. All of their products are natural, with no icky parabens or preservatives, which is important to this Earth Mama!

My favorite shaving cream!
I've used this moisturizing shaving cream for years (since '97) on and off, and nothing else compares to it. It helps the razor glide easily, the fragrances are terrific (my fave is peaceful patchouli), and my sensitive skin loves it (no razor bumps - huzzah!). The downside is that it's not so easy to find in my city: it can only be found at health food stores or at Whole Foods here. So I often end up buying something else for convenience. I wish it were in grocery stores or at Target like other Kiss My Face products.
