Works for me :)
I have acne-prone, fair-skin so even when the breakout is gone, I still have the red marks left for some time. I will apply concealer on my blemishes and then put this powder/foundation on afterwards. It doesn't leave an ugly makeup line on my jaw and also doesn't rub off on clothes, pillows, etc. I have tried to use it by itself (without concealer) and unless you have beautiful skin (or seriously cake it on) it doesn't cover that well. It will hid the small blemishes but not the larger ones. But it serves my purposes and I've been buying it faithfully for about 2 years.

I finally decided to buy this after weeks of picking it up and putting it back. Smartest thing I did. I bought it in Corallina because of my skin-tone and I love it. It looks natural but if you wanted you could get a little heavy handed and it still looks good (just more made up). It does have a little glimmer in it so that may be a negative for some. I'm 24 so it's no biggie but my mom thought it'd be too young for her. It comes in many different shades that somehow all work on most skin tones....it must be the marbling effect. But I love it and have finally found the blush for me :)

This is by far the greatest mascara I've ever used! It gives my blah eyelashes length and volume. And I love that it doesn't take coat after coat after coat to get this effect. Just a few swipes and WOW :)

Pretty Impressed :)
So I got blunt bangs a few weeks ago and have had some issues with keeping the style with the high humidity on the Gulf Coast. So I decided to give this a try and I am so happy with the results! Today was the first big test because I was outside quite a bit and the humidity was at an all time high. My bangs held up!! I blow dry them with a round bristle brush for volume, run the straightener through them a little to fight frizz, and then spray them with this hairspray. I honestly think the Sleek and Shine really works! This is the first time my style has held and stayed frizz free. It does what it says. Sleek and shiny!! UPDATE: So it has officially been 14 hours since I fixed my bangs and used this hairspray and my bangs are still holding up!! I took a hot bath and they held up in the steam! I LOVE this hairspray! Started off with 8 stars but now changing it to 10 :)

Doesn't Do It For Me
I have bought this so many times because everyone is always toting how it's the best over-the-counter product for acne. I'll use it for a few months hoping this is the time it works for me and I'm always disappointed. It dries out my skin so bad that I'm more self-conscious of the dry patches than my acne (and I only use it at night so it's not from over usage). And my pimples never seem to shrink or go away any faster than they do when I'm not using it. It's just a huge major disappoint for me. But I'm aware that it may just be my skin so go ahead and give it a try yourself. You never know, it may be your miracle cure!

Hydrated Skin with First Application
I've been following a new skin care regimen for my acne and it has left my skin extremely dry and sensitive. Especially on my chin because that's where I tend to break-out most. I'm 24 and have become a little freaked out about aging lately. Mainly because the women in my family aren't aging well - mostly due to tanning and smoking, neither of which I do but still. So I went to the store and choose this not only for the firming aspect but for it's claim to sooth dryness for up to 12 hours. Honestly, as soon as I put it on I was impressed. It didn't sit on my face and look all greasy. It absorbed so well. And it honestly soothed my dry, sensitive skin immediately. I even put a little extra around my chin area and it still isn't all greasy. I'm so happy I bought this. (I actually bought the Walmart brand for $2 less because the ingredients were identical and it smelled and looked the same LOL)

My between-trims miracle!
I have long, very thick hair and become very frightened when it is time to go in for a trim! There aren't many stylists around my area who understand that a trim doesn't mean 2 or more inches of my hair! So I go many weeks over the 6-8 week recommended period and I owe it all to this deep conditioner. I leave it on my hair (root to tip) for about 5 minutes and rinse with cool water. For the rest of the day I have the healthiest, shiniest, smoothest hair. It holds up to all forms of weather (I live on the coast of Texas so we get it all).
