I was selected to test this product and was excited to try it. I have incredibly fair skin and was doubtful that the lightest color would match my skin tone, and when I pumped it onto my skin it did look quite dark and orange-y. However, after blending, the color seemed to fade away completely, providing absolutely no coverage at all. There was no balancing of my uneven skin tone and redness and it did nothing for my fine lines. The one thing this product did do really well - and as of right now, the only thing - was that it hydrated my skin a lot. However, I have very oily skin, so for me, this was not ideal. I found this product to be at most a barely tinted moisturizer with SPF and if that's what you're looking for and you have very dry skin then this would be perfect for you. Unfortunately, it did nothing for me except make me look like a grease ball with horrible skin. It also is in no way a cream product. I believe a cream product would provide much more coverage whereas this blended into nothingness. I recommend this product for someone with very dry skin who needs a moisturizer with SPF - that's about all it's good for. I appreciate being chosen to test the product but sadly it just didn't work for me in any way. If it was more pigmented, came in lighter shades for pale skin (not orange) and controlled oil instead of creating it then it would be perfect for me. Also, it is in no way worth the $20 price tag.

My new favorite!
This is definitely my new favorite hair product. I apply some before I blowdry for softness and after as a finish and to tame any fly-aways. Makes my hair feel and look amazing!

Works like a charm - wish there was more
This is the only concealer I've ever used that is able to blend easily into my skin and STAY PUT while still looking natural. I put it on under my eyes and anywhere there is discoloration (or pimples) first and then follow up with my mineral foundation. Two stars off because it tends to run out fairly quickly if you use it every day, and for the price there really should be more product. My advice is to wait for a Buy One/Get One sale at CVS or Walgreens and then stock up!

I use this on my legs after I shave and not only does it soothe and heal any nicks or irritations left over from the shaving, but it also absorbs quickly and leaves my skin feeling icredibly soft and smooth. (No grease here!) The best part is that days later my legs still feel as soft as when I first put it on!

Great as an eyeshadow primer!
I really wanted to love this product, but for some reason it never wore right on my skin. I love the consistancy but apparently my face does not - it just never looked right on me. Until I started using it in the mornings as a quick way to conceal my veiny/discolored eyelids. Alone, it will most certainly crease. But when I used my eyeshadow on top of it, it blended well and *stayed put* ALL day! I no longer bother buying expensive eyeshadow primers - this little gem is all I need!

My lashes have never looked better!
I was curious to try this product when I saw a picture of the brush on the package. One side looks normal, while on the other the bristles are cut very short and close to the wand. Using the "normal" side first, I brushed it on once and immediately saw my lashes look longer and curl slightly at the ends. This goes all the way to the tips! I brushed it through once more and then turned the brush over and nestled the short bristles in close to the lash roots and slowly and firmly brought the wand all the way up through my lashes to the ends. It looked like I had three times as many lashes as with a normal mascara! This product does what it says - thickens, lengthens, and even curls! Definitely waterproof and little-to-no flaking. (I tend to pick at my eye lashes when I have mascara on them - I don't know why! - so I always get some flaking.) I adore this product!

Ditto Cuysmomo's review...
This product without-a-doubt improved the quality of my hair. My hair was immediately softer and shinier, though I agree with Cuysmomo's review that after prolonged use it did leave my hair quite weighed down and I noticed my hair became oily a lot faster than normal - even after rinsing the product thoroughly. The most noticable affect Wen had on my head was actually on my scalp. I found it healed my scalp amazingly - and I hadn't even realized there was a problem with my scalp before using it! It is incredibly soothing. I love the concept of this product and definitely recommend it to others - especially if you have dry/damaged hair, a sore or damaged scalp, or if your hair is in need of a burst of life. Unfortunately the price is rather high. It is extremely expensive for the amount of product you need to use with each washing. If you use it regularly you'll be shelling out QUITE a lot of money - keep that in mind.

A staple for everyone.
This is, hands down, the best lip gloss out there. I'm not usually a "pink" girl, but this color really does work on everyone - natural with a hint of pink and shine. And the minty scent is refreshing without being too strong. Pair it with any of the numerous other Hook Ups mark offers and you'll be good to go all day!

I adore this product despite it making me break out for some reason, even though I don't have sensitive skin and it's oil-free. It's a shame because it has excellent coverage and the smooth consistancy I love in a concealer. I use it mostly under my eyes now, which seems to be the only place that doesn't get irritated by it. It works great to hide the dark red bags under there!
