Love it...Love it!...I bought it because I thought it will add a little bit extra strength on curing my acne, I was really disappointed cause it's impossible to use on or under makeup as it advertised, however, I had pores and black heads on my nose, this thing is like magic with these problems, worth a try....I use it more as a treatment & primer when I am breaking out because it creates a smooth surface for makeup application.

Top 5%...So pure...This cleanser gives that squeaky clean feeling without any salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide, so no drying if you have combination or oily skin....I have extremely sensitive combination skin, and after a horrific experience of a kiehls cleanser that caused a severe allergic reaction that left my face inflamed, chapped, red, and in an immense amount of pain to the point where my throat began to close and I had to go to the hospital, I have been so scared of cleansers.

my fav...So Soft...I received a sample of this with an order and I have to say that I am IMPRESSED; not only did I use this under my foundation but I used it on top as well as a test, just to meld everything together and I have to say that my foundation and skin look absolutely flawless....I did like both however I'm very weird about my face feeling like there is ANYTHING on it once it is cleaned before I go to bed and I could feel both of these especially since I sleep on silk pillowcases my face would just stick, so I dealt with having a dry face because I preferred being dry over my face sticking to my pillow.

I like...My fav...I got natural brows that can become unruly , I used to depend on sub standard drugstore clear mascara and I first balked at the price and went with the Sephora version but it left a shiny coat and glued down my brows in a way I found a bit claustrophobic and I promptly exchanged for the Anastasia brow gel....However its really difficult to get the product from the tube onto the brush, so much so that the first time I used it I thought there was nothing in the tube... it seems like a design flaw, but I really like the product so I'm hoping if I get it again I won't have the same problem...
