Great for Oily but Sensitive Skin
I was looking for something inexpensive with natural ingredients that was gentle enough for sensitive skin, but at the same time would effectively cleanse the oily parts of my face. I was surprised to find that such a product existed. Not only does it clean well without stripping my skin, but it also has vitamin C, which is good for skin over 40. I especially love that it smells like orange juice!

Excellent for Dry Curls
I'm on a budget, so I was looking for something without silicones that would help moisturize my thick, dry curls. I think I found it! This helped detangle the snarls and then left my hair soft, shiny and bouncy. It's quite oily, so I wouldn't recommend it for those with fine hair, but it's great for my big, poofy hair. I'll definitely buy this one again!

Why isn't this on the top ten list?
I just looked at the top thirteen concealers and this isn't on the list. (There are others with lower average ratings that are on the list.... go figure!) Anywho, people used to ask me all the time, "Are you sick? You look tired." However, once I discovered this concealer several years ago, I don't get asked that anymore. (Yesterday, someone actually told me I looked at least ten years younger than my actual age!) I also use it (sparingly) for red areas and acne spots. I always use a primer before the concealer, but one application lasts all day. A tube will last me about two years! Totally worth the money!

It doesn't matter whether you use one coat or three... whether you let dry between coats or not, it's still clumpy. Makes me looks like Raggedy Ann!

Good scrub... but the scent...?
I used this for several weeks and liked how well it smoothed my dry, bumpy, sensitive skin. However, the smell (of so many plant oils in one bottle) was a bit overwhelming.

Not crazy about the scent...
I like the fact that it's light enough to use every day, but thick enough to detangle my corkscrew curls. Its (almost) all natural ingredients are good for dry hair and delicate scalps. However, I had to knock it down a couple stars, because to me it smelled somewhat of burnt rubber with just a hint of grapefruit. Also, the shine lasted throughout the day, but then disappeared the next day.

Best Foundation for Sensitive Skin
I agree with Shoegirl... Do NOT use the cheaper store brands. (I, too, have tried them, then returned to the bareMinerals foundation.) I have to admit I hate to wear make-up and I hate to spend too much money. However... if you have sensitive and/or acne-prone skin as I do, this is the best product to use. It doesn't feel as if you're wearing make-up and most important, it doesn't irritate your skin. It covers up the redness while still looking completely natural.
