Absolutely Positively Nothing Good
I think I've used this twice: once to see if it worked and once for the heck of it. Neither time did I like it. Anything about it. My hair doesn't necessarily go flat, so I wanted it just for oil. Which means using it at my roots. The product is impossible to brush out from there, leaving a white heavy, almost chalky mess. It did nothing for oil and just added to the greasiness, and THAT weighed my hair down. I don't think think my head has ever felt more digusting. What was supposed to be a quick fix turned into a no-time-for shower, and a virtually full bottle of wasted money under my sink.

It feels nice and light, so light it's crazy! My skin is normally ridiculously oily even by lunchtime, but it doesn't feel oily to the touch once it's applied and isn't as bad a few hours later compared to usual. It blend really well into skin, but takes a little work ( I apply it with my fingers, rubbing it in roughly then "buff" it out with a sponge to get it even). It's not ten stars because it's not a lot of coverage. It does cover up a lot of things (but not my biggest acne spots on any given day) but hey, it's almost advertised as more of a tinted moisturizer (it's in between a foundation and moisturizer) so it shouldn't be expected to do everything.

Not a big fan....at all
There's honestly nothing I like about this face wash. Granted, I found out I have more sensitive skin than I realized (thanks to this scrub), and my acne is pretty stubborn, but it did nothing but cause trouble. First of all it's consistency is difficult to work with. There's barely any moisture in it, so it's hard to squeeze out of the bottle. Once it's in my hand it feels kind of gross. It's hard to spread across my face and takes too long to foam. This scrub contains menthol. The first time I used it it reminded me of putting toothpaste on my face, because it has a minty tingle. But this is where I found my sensitivity, because it was more of a burn and if left on too long it really hurt. I was quite stupid because even after all of that, I continued my use to see if maybe it worked. After roughly three weeks I didn't see enough of an improvement to continue. Some of the little, constant whiteheads and such were gone, but a bunch of groups of inflamed papules popped up, and they didn't appear to be the "worse before better" reaction. To top it off, my skin has been dry and flaky (normally oily) And extremely sensitive to any sort of thing for a day or two now AFTER I stopped using it. So yeah, not pleased.

Sticky All Day
The lotion is fine and all, but when I put it on in the morning, I could feel it on my legs all day. It made them sticky and it felt heavy, and by the end I just wanted to wash it off! (especially when I was wearing a skirt and my legs are rubbing against each other the entire day....ick!) I've used it and nighttime and the feeling as gone by morning.
