Good, but not better than others
I am very familiar with Fekkai and have tried most of the products since they are sold at BBW (one of my favorite stores). The cream delivers its promise, smoothing my hair and reducing frizz without making it greasy. However, it is not any better than more affordable brands. I actually prefer John Frieda's Secret Weapon, because I feel SW soaks in to hair, while Fekkai just coats it. Is it good? Yes. Is it worth the price? No.

Almost too good to be true!
Incredible! My sensitive, combination skin was completely comfortable in this medium/buildable coverage foundation. It literally lasted ALL DAY (10 am -10pm!), and helped hold on to my blush and eyeshadow as well. It takes a little blending ,so I recommend a foundation brush. Worth every penny.

This is the first true lip stain I've ever used, and I am never using anything else! It makes liips look like they are naturally colored and lasted on me even through lunch. The trick with this is to swipe it over lips and then blend in with fingers. I simply needed lip balm to freshen up. Unlike other types of long-lasting lip colors I've used (such as the ones that come with a sticky stain and gloss) that wear off unevenly, this stain sinks into lips and is flawless all day.

GREAT, but one important note
This shampoo is incredible... it makes my hair Pantene-commercial shiny. It does what it says it will. Be aware though: the stuff that makes it shiny will make it dull over time because of product build up. I use this all the time and once a week use a clarifying shampoo, and it works perfectly.

Amazing...If you use it right
I have used this every summer for going out and there are two important things I have learned. 1. If you have combination or dry skin, moisturize those drier areas specifically and allow to set in. 2. Apply with a foundation brush. Mix the product on the back of your hand and then use the brush to blend well into your skin. Blend into jaw-line using brush as well. This is a really great product for maximum coverage and a natural look. It is smooth, blends away flaws and sits well on skin. It will ast through going out on a summer night, and lends the most dewy, fresh look I have ever found with a high-coverage foundation.

Creamy, non-greasy, and WORKS
I use this cream in the "touch of sun". It goes on your skin very rich and creamy like an overnight cream, but soaks into your skin and actually leaves it looking matte. After using it for three days each night, I saw smoother skin in the morning. It makes my skin smoother, softer, more even-looking, and even is cutting down on blemishes (it has a small amount of salicylic acid in it). The touch of sun is great because I wake up with a healthy look to my usually pale skin. It is so great to find a hydrating product for my acne-prone skin that also fights aging. The only drawback is the lack of spf (doesnt come in touch of sun). Because of this, I use it at night only and use Olay complete with spf 15 during the day. Overall, this is an amazing product and worth the price.

THE BEST hand treatment ever
This is the best product I have every used. It heals as well as moisturizes. I wash my hands very often (which dries them out), and get little cracks and cuts in them at work; this is the only product that treats both dry skin AND small cuts. The consistency could be described as a quick-absorbing neosporin. It doesn't have any noticeable scent. It is smooth and absorbs well. Its ingredient list includes: Borage extract, jojoba oil, olive oil, echinacea extract, royal jelly, aloe, rosemary, calendula extract, and peppermint, all in a mixture of glycerin (which makes up forty percent of the cream). You just cant beat that!

Caused redness, still okay
I used this faithfully morning and night for two weeks. It took a while to see any difference. After about a week the purplish tint underneath my eyes was replaced by redness. The skin underneath my eyes became very sensitive and had a slight burning feeling when I washed my face. It's not as moisturizing as one would hope either. Not too great.

Best of them all
I have tried avery self-tanning mist out there, and this one is the best and easiest to use and has the best shade of color for my light skin. The tricks are to a) mist from the bottom-up to avoid streaks. Do your arms last since you will be twisting and turning to reach your back, etc, which can cause crease-marks in your arms. b) hold the can 10 inches away from the skin, and use small, circular motions while sweaping up and down to get the most even application c) spray 30 before bedtime so that you can let the product dry completely and wont rub off unevenly with your daily activities (clothing, sweating, etc.) d) apply lightly! two light, barely there coats are better than one thick one. Yes, you might lose more of the product this way, but better to use less and get a great glow than waste less and come out streaky.

Use a foundation brush!
This is a very thick, high coverage makeup, but it provides a great finish. It dries dewy and fresh-looking. I like to mix a drop of moisturizer in with it to lighten the consistency a bit, which doesnt seem like a problem to me since it makes the bottle last longer. I dont like it for everyday since I prefer lighter coverage, but for nightime or special ocassions, it is great. It makes your skin look flawless in pictures and does not cause a ghost-like-mask ; in fact, it seems to hide blemishes even better on camera. If it isnt blending properly for you, remember that with high coverage, you need the correct tools. A foundation brush is a must with this product and makes all the difference.
