Worth the buy, especially for sensitive skin
As where most retinal and exfoliating products you can get real flaky skin and redness if you have sensitive skin like me, this product is perfect for us. I've used Obagi and the the Obagi C for sensitive, which was still harsh for my delicate skin area. I flaked for 3 weeks! This product is perfect to use nightly for a week and then every other night. I also put a dab of Retinal A on darker scar areas and sunspots. I haven't really flaked much and when I did, I just put a vitamin C moisturizer from Mad hippie and the serum, before putting on makeup and I didn't flake at all. In fact it took over a week of nightly use before I even saw a few flakiness and I think it was mostly due to me also using a Retinal A cream as well every other night over the Vivite. I paid $100 from my spa and I do think this is worth the price. It's cheaper than Obagi and Retinal A from your spa or doctors office. Of course I stock up on my retinal in Mexico because it has a long shelf life. The one's I purchase don't expire for atleast 4 years and I go yearly. But it can be too strong, as where VIvite is a good start if you've never used an exfoliate like this and is also a good addition to your weekly routine. i do recommend switching your products up as the season changes and this may be a bit too harsh during the cold dry winters. I use this in the summer and back home in Hawaii it's very humid, so this is the Perfect product for humid and hot weather.

Not bad for the price
I read about this on Paula's choice and decided to try it.. I don't consider Estee Lauder expensive at all, maybe for those who only buy drug store products, but you get what you pay for. To me expensive is DermaMedics & Skincueticals, but well Worth it! I've been using this for about a month or so and though it's not Miracle results, it works good enough for the price it cost. I mean it's not Prevage or Vivitex, but like I said you get what you pay for. I used this and then applied Retinal A, Vivitex, or PRevage afterwards. I switched it up every week On what I used. I do think it's worth the price. I take very good care of my skin and have part Asian in me so I'm sure genetics plays a part, but my skin is flawless, smooth and I look younger than 30 yrs of age for sure. I say if you can't or don't want to spend the money on medical grade or spa products than Estee Lauder is the way to go, especially over Lancome for sure.. Lancome is just the fancier upgraded name of L'oreal. Like how Toyotal's upgrade is Lexus, Honda to Acura...well...you get what I'm saying....Not much difference where Lancome an most other come into play aside from Price Raise!

This really does stay
This is another one of my top five eyeliner and for the price it's great. It does stay, but still smears so I put a sealant on and it's completely smudge/waterproof. I like to make sure my eyes won't ever smear a bit because number one thing to NOT do is what we always do in our 20's. RUB our eyes, and this helps to prevent it.

worth the Price
Okay this isn't a MC quality, but for the price is darn good, I bought the whole set of Co,or I think 12 of them. The top does require more attention, but if you tilt & shake it, it works great. For the price you can't complain and in the lipstain case you really do get what you're paying for in most cases.

By far the Best Hair Supp. on Market
I'm on my 3rd box and after or during the first one I couldn't tell, but then again I wasn't taking it everyday. I take mine once a day, sometimes too and my hair in the past 6 months especially has gotten much thicker and more hair growing, that I'm able to keep trimming my dead ends and highlighted ends. I'm part asian, but has never had thick healthy asian hair, though it looked thick and long. Well My European side is pretty thin and unfortunately that is what I inherited texture wise. My hair looks and is now starting to feel thick and healthy. I'm 35yrs old and about 3 years ago during a bad divorce I started getting about 8 white hairs, well I have none of that and my hair looks as good as it did when I was pregnant and had luscious long too good to be true hair.. :-) It's worth the buy, and you can stretch your money by taking just one a day and another Biotin or hair supplement a day as well. It really does help and I take this along with Andrew lessman and 3-6--5-7-9 omegas supplement.

Really good product for oily or breakouts
I have very dry skin, but when I do get breakouts every now and then I use this. It's really good for oily skin and my 15 yrs old daughter uses it. This is a great skincare line and I am starting to fall in love with it. It's at almost all the spas in Colorado and I wondered why. I've been to over literally a dozen different spas and scene it in atleast 10 of them. I found out it's a Boulder, CO based company. And anyone who knows statistics, Boulder has the most fit people as well as attractive in the US. It's like Beverly hills of Ca, but it's Colorado's BV hills. I've seen this product around for over a year and just had to do my research on it to see what is so Great about it. It balances out with your skins PH levels and has a product line for every skin need. I have very dry skin, so I can only use this when I breakout or a few times a week so I couldn't give it a whole 10, but for my skin being dry it's deserves an 8. It's really affordable, but their peptides products run a bit high, but worth the price like CE ferulic in skincueticals. I recommend this absolutely for oily skin, but even dry skin during humid weather or summers when my skin gets a bit moist.

Too course/harsh for senstive skin
I bought this because I got a 50% discount on it along with the RP cream. My skin has been on and off sensitive depending on the season, so I pamper and take extra precautions during winter season. This is really harsh on your skin even if you are very careful. I think my skin would benefit with this product in the summer time or when I'm back in Hawaii where the weather is humid. But in the states such as Colorado & Nevada we have dry weather and unless your skin is really oily I would advise against this. Not to mention it's over priced and you can get just as good results with drug store products or even the avon microderms where you have 4 levels to build your tolerance up.

Love the powder base Product, haven't used brush yet though
This review is based on the actual powder. I was given a sample of the medium color which lasted for about 7 uses, I used a lot. I did feel the brush at my spa and thought the bristles were not as harsh as Peter Thomas roth's version, but not as soft as Eminence. It's alright, but the powder works Great as a nice natural cover and setting powder over my BB cream. It's Great coverage and doesn't seem to have a fragrance that Eminence contains which sometimes irritates my skin and makes it itchy. I used this with a good kabuki brush (Make Up 4ever HD). The coverage is so light and wonderful and actually gives me a nice coverage and smooth natural looking complexion. It's cheaper than Eminence by about $20. I love how my skin feels both ways, using it alone, over my tinted moisturizer or bb cream. I suggest buying the refill because it' much cheaper and the brush it comes with sin't worth the extra 30 dollars. I found refills on Ebay for under $20. I have several Eminence empty powder brushes which can be refilled, and I use the refills in this for it. Which is a wonder why you can refill the Eminence brushes, but they don't sell refills like Color Science. The medium works well with my skin when it' fair and also when I have a bronze tan going on. It gives my winter parched and fair skin some color to it and wakes my face up. This is really a good buy and Better than Eminence which I did write a Glowing review about, but it was before this product came out on the market or I knew about it.

Decent Product, easy on Hair for the price
My daughter saw this when we were browsing through the hair/make up isles in Target and this looked like a good product to try. She has super long Hawaiian hair and I have long hair myself. We got this I believe when it first came out on the shelves in Target several months ago and we use it after the shower. It's very nice on your scalp, helps getting excess water out, combs through the hair nice without any harsh bristles and feels like a comb, due to the spaced out bristles. We paid about 8-9 dollars for it, but it must be catching on because price has increased. My daughter loves this brush and it's seems that it'll last pretty long because it's pretty sturdy even though I was a bit worried and wondered what made it stand out from other brushes. It is worth a buy and hey you could always return it if you don't like it, but the price is soo affordable to really do that.

Great Product color & price
I love this, although my first choice is lancomes one for the face, but pricey. I use this and the body gradual tan and for the price, it's Fantastic. I love how creamy and smooth it goes on my face, it gives me a nice glow and you can't beat the price. Mine has lasted for a long time and after 3 days I get the nice natural glow to my face and don't need to wear foundation or bronzer powder.
