for the 4 dollar price tag, u cant expect much. i dont like the design of the brush, it tapers at the end but was not designed great, so its not the best at catching the small lashes on the ends. The mascara clumos up at the tapered end and u have to wipe it off before applying. Once its on, it looks fine, nothing dramatic, but does help with lengthening, although it seems to make my lashes look a little mroe sparse..

I tried this once in the summer to lighten up my usualy makeup routine. It was a tinted tone when it came out of the bottle, but upon putting it on my face, noticed no covergae at all! didnt help dark circles, red spots, anything. I would have been better off using just a mousturizer, as the tint didnt help and made the mousturizer feel unnatural

perfect pick me up
This soap is amazing, primarily for: 1)post gym work-out, totally scrubs the sweat off you and leaves you feeling soo clean; 2)when you need to wake up in the morning- this gets ur sesnes going, 3) in the summer-it legit cools you off!. I love this soap and recently had some friends over for the weekend. They tried it out and asked me a lillion questions about it, swearing they were going to buy it the second they got home! the peppermint smells great and really wakes you up! I am really interested in trying it as a laundry detergent, what a saver that would be!! You also get soo much use out of it, becasue the bottle states to dilute it with water, making it still potent, yet lasting so long!

all primed up
i first bought this as a replacement for skin rever upper and originally didnt get it. It ddnt seem to do anything for my skin. I then bought more rever upper and used them in conjunction. I never noticed anything special until recently when i tried some new products and had very bad acne breakouts for which even prescription meds arent helping it. i was in a big battle over the meds drying out my skin, then trying to overmoustrueize and ending up with super oily spots. I decided to come back to my tried and true. I began coupling the rever upper with prime time and found a magic formula! the rever upper's salycidic acid helps control pimples and the prime time helps smooth flakiness and allows my makeup to stay on longer!! i used to use about three blotting sheets per day at work, but since starting this duo, i barely need one!! So happy i tried prime time again!!

use it right!!!!
You cant expect a cream to be a miracle jsut cuz u heard some claims. It wont work if you dont use it correctly according to your skins needs! I have been true to this priduct for probably five years now, and any time i tried something esle, i always ended up back with the rever upper. I recently started breaking out in bad acne that is not getting better even with prescription meds. My chin broke out in terriblew, bumpy, bright red acne, then began flaking and drying terribly due to prescription washed and gels. I used a thick mousturizer to help the dryness, but that made my t zone soo shiny an hour after applyign makeup. I have started a new regimine of washing then applying rever-upper to treat ance (without overdrying or being to harsh) then prome time on top to smooth lines and address flakiness. So far, its working well. My skin is alotttt less flaky. And if you notice the website, although rever upper does have salycidic acid, it is not sold as a acne lotion, its a lotion to prep for face for better makeup application. Helping acne is just and added benefit. And i have extremely sensitive skin and this doesnt bother it at all. Matter of fact, when i tried using a thicker mousturizer to address flakiness- one that specifically was for ppl with acne prone sensitive skin or rosacea and was made with oatmeal, even that stung my skin!! and rever upper doesnt at all!! give it a chance!

super happy so far
Ive only been using this product for a few days now, but i already am noticing results with regrad to oil production in my t zone. My skin is sensitive, combination skin and lately my t zone has been producign excessive oil, especially my nose which is totally shiny three hours after i put my make up on. I use this in conjunction with fresh farmacy and breath of fresh air toner, and am loving it. It is not too drying, as i still produce a bit of oil (it wouldnt be natural or healthy for a product to completely stop oil production ladies, but today i did not need the emergency face blotting papers by 10am. And im not sure which product is resposible for clearing up a bad red, rough acne patch i had on my chin. So pleased so far. And the scent- to dieee for!!!! its so light and a little nutty and sweet, definitely fruity. I can smell it on my face on occasion and am so pleased! wish they could bottle it as a perfume!

not for a hundred dollars..
I wanted to try the product before investing such a huge sum of money in it. The Lush associate gave me a tinyyyy sample that lasted maybe a week. I dont know if i ddnt give it enough time to see its magic, but for the week i used it i noticed no change in skin tone, oiliness, or clearing up blemishes. My skin was very oily through the day. I do love the scent though, a light orangey scent, great for spring. I have begun using enzymion which has really helped with my oily skin and is easy on sensitive skin as well.

so far so good
Ive only tried the corrector a few times, but each time ive been happy with its staying power and strength. I have very thin, fair skin, so i only have to dab a little on and blend carefully, and it seems to really help conceal my dark purpl/blue unlike other correctors and concealers can. Dont notice it settling into any fne lines, and seems to stay put for a long time! I have used it with out any extra concelaer over it, because it seems like the corrector alone is enough! Hoping my excitement for this product lasts!!

a little cakey
I was between this and the erase paste and i decided to try both. I reviewed erase paste and didnt love it. Though i feell ike this gave better coverage to my dark circles, it wasnt as brightening as erase paste. It also came in easier packaging. WHile erase paste was creamy and globby, boing was thinner and more creamy going on. I did feel like there was some yellow undertones that didnt work out so well on my fair skin. Didnt seem to last through the day either.. and i noticed it cake into my fine lines. not impressed, but i dont hate it
