Works well but wide spray; perfume smell
I got a full sized can for free through a store rewards program. Otherwise it's fairly pricey, retailing for about $15 an 8 oz can. Overall, I would not probably purchase this. It does leaves my hair conditioned, and boosts the shine and refrehses my color treated hair. However after a few days of use my hair felt "gummy" and weighed down. It's a pump dispenser which allows for specific control, however the spray range is very wide - meaning no matter how careful I am I end up with some of the product landing on the counter top, wall next the mirror, etc. So it can be kind of messy. Whether this is something only with the can I have, or part of all their packaging, I don't know. If you're sensitive to smells, it does have a slightly odd smell. Not a bad smell, just different. I haven't noticed it on my hair, only when I"m applying it. It's hard to describe, but it's kind of like a sharp perfume.

TOTALLY fixed my skin! Wonderful product!
This product is amazing, I can't believe the difference it's made in my skin. I don't know how it does it but this product makes my skin look *amazing*. Fresh, soft, and ultra clean. Due to a severe sunburn years ago, I feel I have somewhat larger pores on my nose. This product refreshes my skin leaving it ultra clean and ultra fresh. I can tell the difference in photographs from when I started using this product, it's that good. It lasts a long time, even with the $30 price. A little goes a long way. Don't rush through using it, take your time and the results will amaze you. Great product.

Wonderful! The Best!
This stuff is GREAT!! I'm in my 40's with combo skin. This works great and I swear my skin is refreshed, perfected, and 10x cleaner when I use this product. Leaves my skin feeling smooth. A little goes a long way; I use it twice a day and the tube lasts a long time. It's one of the pricer MK cleansers but completely worth it. When I go cheaper, I always come back to this cleanser. I love this stuff!!!!

Like it more the more I use it
The more I use this, the more I like it. I have oily skin and this really stops the shine all day long. Very light coverage but it does smooth out and "perfect" my skin; the more I "buff" it the better my skin looks. It really evens out the skin tone under my eyes!! [I use a smaller brush for that area]. Definitely get a color-match done; I was matched for a color lighter than I would have thought and it ended up being just right. It did take some practice to apply, even though I've been using another mineral foundation for awhile. This product is finer, more "powdery", and at first I was applying too much. There's some good deals out there on small starter kits, take advantage of those.

Tames the frizz!
This is a very nice product! My hair is blonde, shoulder length with layers and damaged due to coloring and heat styling. This stuff really tames down the fly-aways and "frizz". I didn't notice a lot of shine, but my hair was much softer, the fly-aways were gone, and my hair looks overall healthier. You can't beat the price, under $5; proof that more $ doesn't always = better. I use one pump full, rub it all over my hands and then work it through towel-dried hair. A little goes a long way! Overall I've been very pleased with any Garnier product I've tried, this is no exception.

My daughter loves this stuff
My daughter (early 20's) raves about this product so I'm writing a review based on her info. She was looking for a something to super clean her skin; she isn't break out prone but worked outside all summer and needed something to cleanse AND "freshen" her skin. She bought this at Target based on the label info, and said it's amazing. It leaves her skin so fresh, ultra clean, smooth and in such good shape that she has skipped wearing make on most days up since she began using it. Just the right amount of "scrub" without being irritating, but enough to do the job. The only drawback is that it doesn't come in a pump dispenser.

I purchased this after reading rave reviews, and now I'm adding my own rave review. This stuff is awesome. It absorbs quickly into the skin, isn't greasy, and the best part is that it works so well I don't even have to use it every day. I buy it when it's on sale from Avon and it's always very inexpensive. This is the BEST body lotion moisturizer out there.

My roots were beginning to show and I had a choice - color again or try this product. Based on all the positive reviews, I gave it a try. My roots are gone!! I look like my hair was just freshly colored!! I color my light brown hair with L'Oreal Excellence Creme 9 1/2 lightest natural blonde; I got #9 Light Blonde in the root touch up and it matched *exactly*. I left it on slightly longer than 10 min. The tray is small, but it's deep and didn't tip, so it wasn't really a problem [they must have improved the design?]. I also had more than enough product to cover my part line and above my bangs. This stuff is amazing, I will absolutely purchase it again!!

Excellent deep conditioning
This is an excellent deep conditioning product. It's applied to towel-dried hair, so yah there is the extra step of towel drying, applying, leaving it on, and rinsing; however it's absolutely worth it because the results are *amazing*. My hair ends are totally fried due to blonde coloring/highlighting/heat styling/being in the sun. This product not only repaired the damage and frizz after one use, but left my hair super, super soft , lightweight and "airy" (I can't think of how else to describe the light, soft, weightless way my hair feels after using this!). It rinses out well and added incredible shine to my highlighted/colored hair!....... Don't skip the application instructions and cut corners by applying it in the shower; you won't get the full benefits of the product. I avoided my roots and didn't have any problem with it weighing down my hair (although everyone's hair is diff). It says to leave it on for 5 min., I got distracted doing laundry and left it on for about 15 min. and that wasn't a problem. Since it's so thick and sticks to the hair, you can walk around the house without a drippy mess. I purchased this as a trial size, I will definitely buy it again in the full size. Absolutely amazing conditioner!

Good eye cream
This stuff does exactly what I purchased it to do - that is pamper the skin beneath my eyes. It's very gentle and a little goes a long way, just a tiny bit will cover beneath both eyes. It's a nice anti-aging product, it really does reduce the look of tiny lines and the thinning skin that affects the under-eye area. I've tried a couple of the Liiv line of products from Avon and been very happy with them.
