I have been using this product for about a month now, and I have seen results! I have acne marks and some dark spots that I really do not like since I feel that since I am a young woman who wears sunscreen all the time, I definitely should not have! But alas, since I do have a darker skin complexion, I am obviously more prone to such marks. I know that there are many products for dark spots that are on the more expensive side, but I wanted to first start to get rid of them with a cheaper alternative and from a brand that I feel I could trust. So I use this product only at night (I feel if I wear it with my daytime moisturizers it would just feel as if I'm wearing too much product on my skin.) This feels nice and light, and its not too heavy that I can also put on a nightly moisturizer as well. I have noticed that my marks are fading which is awesome, however, i wonder if there is a product that is even more effective. Still, I am happy with the results! I just want to try other products as well

Great acne mask!
I tend to break out a lot around the time of the month, so this mask is a lifesaver. I'll have some huge, ugly pimples and by the next day, they will be a million times smaller! The smell might throw some people off since it is kinda strong, but trust me, this product works! The mask tingles a little bit, so if you do not enjoy a tingly feeling from cleansers or masks, stay away from this product. After I wash off the mask, my skin instantly feels tight, soft, clean,and I feel as if my pimples are already starting to get smaller! I just want to say that since this product has sulfur, I recommend using a nice moisturizer after since sulfur can be a bit drying, and that is another reason to not abuse this product (or your skin) by using this too many times during the week. Other than that, I highly recommend this mask!

Effective Cleanser; but NOT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN
Anything with Benzoyl Peroxide can be harsh, especially since this cleanser has the highest (10%) you can get without a prescription. There's a reason many over the counter acne cleansers or medications contain salicylic acid: its gentle and suitable for all skin types and tends to be very effective. However, benzoyl peroxide is a stronger acne medication, so many dermatologists will recommend using a product with benzoyl peroxide before prescribing anything else. This cleanser works well for me, thankfully my skin isn't too sensitive. However, I once used it every night for about 4 days and that was too harsh on my skin and it started peeling. So I stopped using it for awhile until my skin got back to normal and then I used it again, and from now on if I am having bad breakouts I will only use it every other day. I do not recommend this product in the slightest for people with sensitive skin. But if you have oily/combination skin, this product really works, but make sure you only use it a few times a week as the benzoyl peroxide is known to dry out skin quite a bit. Plus, anyone that does not enjoy a minty, tingly sensation from cleansers, then this product is not for you. But again, this product does work.

Great lightweight lotion
I love Johnson's Baby lotion, they always give nice, light moisturization and leave a nice delicate, smell. I use this lotion during the spring/summer time, because this gives my skin a light moisturization and ensures my skin will stay smooth all day. I will say that I would not recommend this lotion to severely dry skin, you might want to buy a lotion that is thicker. That's a reason why I only use it in the spring/summer because during the fall/winter my skin tends to need more moisturization, where a lotion such as Cocoa Butter is much more suitable. Other than that, this is a great product that I will definitely buy again!

Lovely scent; sucky staying power
I got this scent for my birthday and was excited to try it since I loved the Viva La Juicy! scent. This one has a more laid back, beachy feel. Smells a bit like fresh cut flowers, so its a very nice, light, everyday scent. However, it doesn't stay on long. Honestly, it feels like it stays on for at the most 2 hours. I wish it stayed on longer because it is a lovely scent, however I don't know if I would ever ask/buy another bottle. Maybe I'll try a rollerball to help with this because I really do enjoy it

I had been wanting this perfume for a really long time, so when I was given it as a gift for Christmas I freaked out!!! I instantly fell in love with the scent. it is sweet, and the scent lasts all day! The scent has honeysuckle, pear, vanilla and amber. I always get compliments when I wear it and my boyfriend loves it. This would be a great gift to any young woman;smells great and who can resist the adorable bottle??

Great for Spring and Summer!!
I have a combo skin, mostly normal and oily but dry spots in the winter. So during the winter months, I use a thicker moisturizer. However, during the summer months I need one that is a lot lighter but still provides moisturization, and this product is perfect! Its very cool and refreshing, perfect for hot summer nights here in Texas. My skin is left perfectly moisturized without any oil! I use this moisturizer only at night during the Spring and Summer. Obviously I wouldn't recommend using during the day since this product contains no SPF, but they do have a Moisture Rescue Refreshing Gel-Cream with SPF 15 now!

Best Drugstore Foundation!
I am mixed race, so finding the right color foundation had been quite the hassle for a long time. I would find many products that came close like Trublend from Covergirl, but it was never exact. One day I decided to try this foundation and I have never looked back. I apply it with a foundation brush and it does not leave my skin feeling oily at all. I will say that this foundation is a bit heavy, so it might not be ideal for everyone, I myself don't wear foundation everyday (just BB cream) so this is night for the weekends when I am going out. So anyone who has had a hard time finding the right foundation for their skin tone, I recommend checking out True Match!

For quite awhile, Cetaphil only had moisturizers that were SPF 15 and 50. SPF 15 just did not feel like enough protection and SPF 50 made my face feel oily! This is just the right amount of protection. My skin stays matte all day and feels super smooth. The only thing I would change about the product is the smell, its not too bothersome so that is why I keep using it but I don't really like it either. Otherwise, great product!

I suffer from keratosis pilaris, which is when keratin forms hard plugs in the hair follicles. I only have it on my upper arms, but it can be quite bothersome and is a condition that worsens in the winter because of dry, windy weather. I had used many creams and lotions that are known for being great a moisturizing, like Cetaphil and Eucerin, and while they made my skin soft, my bumps never got better. However, I tried Amlactin and it has been absolutely wonderful! To deal with my Keratosis Pilaris, I exfoliate my arms once a week, using a body wash with a high concentration of moisturizers everyday, and then I put on Amlactin straight out of the shower. It has a light smell, that reminds me a bit of honey, I don't care for the scent much, but thankfully it is not strong and that it doesn't interfere with being an awesome lotion!
