I wish I could love this product
I ended up returing this product. My honest opinion - I liked the moisturizer but it wasn't for me. The texture was nice and smooth, and somewhat light and fast absorbant in a way that I thought my oily sensitive skin can handle... all and in all the moisturizer felt great, but it didn't work for me. It was a little on the greasy side, plus this product contain a bit of vitamin C so I got a bit sensitive to it enough that made me broke out a little bit. I mean everybody are different but in my opinion this might a good moisturizer for people who are normal to dry skin type. People with dry skin check it out, people with oily skin might want to try a sample first.

My next favorite
This lip pigment is awesome - I got the sheer one and it's the perfect everyday, every occasion lipstick that I ever found. I love it. It goes on sheer, smooth and moisturizing, there's a bit of a sweet flavor towards it but tolerable. Most importantly it didn't dry out my lips like other lipsticks, and it's ingredients are more plant base so there's more natural than chemicals. The price is right! for $15 it's worth it for such beautiful natural color! I would buy this again.

This lipstick is very pigmented and vibrant... a little hard to tone it down a bit. The texture is smooth but also like other natural organic lipsticks that have that little chalkiness to it, not the sheer type but goes on smooth. Tolerable natural scent with great natural ingredients, I guess that's why the price is a bit more $19 than a regular lipstick. I think it's a little expensive but if you go for the natural, chemical free perspective than it might worth it. Never the less I returned it due to the strong pigmentation of it color - this lipstick is a shade pigmented or darker than it's presentation. I would try it again or recommend it due to it's natural chemical free ingredients, but not until they offer more nutural colors.

All I can say is "Moisturizing" - unlike the sticky ones this gloss actually moisturizing. The texture is a little slippery maybe due to the fact of the jojoba oil, almond oil ingredients, but it's all good because I know these ingredients are good for skin so why not. I used this when I want a bit of moisture or shine on the lips. Lavera gloss is very sparkly shiny with only a hint of color... if you are looking for a bold lip gloss this might not be it for you. I do like the fact it's organic but it's a bit expensive for the price $14, especially when it's doesn't have much of a color. However, I would recommend it to someone who needs break from the chemical type of lipsticks and glosses.

Only 7 day luxury for me
I'm not going to deny it this is a very nice creamy scrub, the scrub partcles are very refine perfectly gentle on skin, and the price (approx. $18) is right for a luxury brand. I thought I found my match, but it didn't work for me it broke me out a bit after a week of usage. In my opinion I think it might be a bit moisturizing for my oily sensitive skin, the texture is very creamy but not to a point that is greasy. So it's a go for normal to dry skin, but for oily skin. A bummer for me.

Moisturing Yes For Oily Skin No
I heard so many good comments about this yellow moisturizer, but it didn't work for me. I didn't tried once but twice... I went back and bought it again to give it another try, I thought it was me but no it's the moisturizer. I have to confess I do have oily, sensitive skin type, but tend to get dry patches here and there - this is definitely not for oily skin type. It made my skin a bit oily and over a period of time I broke out, not the pimple type but the clogged up white head type - the hard to get rid annoying type of break out. I need to go to get facials to extract it off my skin. This lotion is very moisturizing, I think good for people with dry skin - it goes on smooth and creamy (which might be a red flag for oily skin), but I will recommend to people whos skin needs a drink of moisture, because base on the price (average$$) for that big of a bottle it's worth a try.

What does collagen means in a mascara anyway - first impression thinking collagen means plump, think, volume, moisturize..maybe? In conclusion, it's just a plain mascara with a handsome price ($$) for a drugstore brand. I see a lot of bad reviews on here, and yes they do somehow applies with my experience with this mascara (it's clumps, globs, or maybe flakes a little), but towards the end it's not that bad. What I like about this product it does brings out the blakest black color on the lashes and does make you eyes pops out, and secondly it gives the lashes a bit of lengthen and volume. So the word volume do apply to this product afterall.

If you want me to describe this lipstick with one word my first impression will be "smooth", and smooth makes it easier to any lips ranging from normal, dry to chapped. In my opinion there are some PROS and CONS about this product, but I always fall back to this lipstick when other brand lipsticks are too dry on my lips. PROS: Goes on smooth with full coverage and don't really feathers, and a little addition of moisture and NO strange perfume scent and that's a plus. CONS: It's smooth but almost slippery, so you do need to wait a bit for it to dry up if not it can be a bit messy for the teeth. Due to it's slippery smooth effect the color does not last for a long time must re-apply and apply. It also can be a little drying for long period of use, in my personal experience it did cause my lips a bit dry and peel. Cost wise it is a bit pricey, however I would choose this lipstick over other name brand lipsticks because this product delivers the "smooth"~ Overall it's a good product but not the best.

Transparent and apparent good for oily skin
This soap did a squiking clean job for my oily sensitive face, and I only use it once a day put some of my occasional breakouts at bay. Pros: it's a well-known dermatologist recommended brand, under $3 and smell pleasant (not over-powering, and there's a fragrant-free one) It's gentle use a little goes a long way leaves skin soft and clean after one use. Cons: It's a bit drying, and this soap runs out or melts quickly if under water for a period of time - so keep in dry place.
