Good moisturizer with hypoallergenic ingredients
This is a great formulation for acne-prone skin. My only issue is that it's a bit heavy to use under make up. One other thing I noticed is that when I received my shipment, the pump was already broken in and some of the moisturizer had spilled out. This made me a bit paranoid about contamination. Still, it's a great moisturizer if you are looking for something affordable that won't break you out.

Great body and lip moisturizer
Jojoba oil is great as a body and lip moisturizer. I don't use it too much on my face because it feels a bit too oily for me, but I like the texture when I apply it elsewhere.

Best sunscreen!
Best sunscreen texture! This sunscreen is kind of like a serum, without the typical white residue that other sunscreens tend to leave on the face. It is good for sensitive skin and has not caused any breakouts for me. It offers great sun protection, and can even be used under makeup, but you have to wait for it to dry & get absorbed first

Helps with inflammation and skin texture
helps with skin texture helps with inflammation cheap Can clog pores for some people Using pure honey is the best mask for my face, and much cheaper too. I use organic honey and the honey that comes with the plain Fage yogurt (random, but it works so good). I can leave the mask on for hours and then wash it off. Helps with scarring, inflammation, and skin texture. It can also help reduce the size of inflammed pimples when used consistently. Do a spot treatment for a few days to see how your skin

Vegetarian Version is Better
Useful multivitamin good blend of vitamins and gentle herbs helps with deficiencies and liver toning a bit pricey magnesium stereate in the capsule This is a great supplement for healthy skin. The vitamins, minerals and herbal blend are in the right ratio and they work synergistically. I have only used the vegetarian version, which to me is far better in terms of capsule fillers etc. Can take 2- 3 months to notice consistent improvement, but I noticed that my skin texture was improving within th

Great for Hormonal Acne & PCOS
No side effects Safe for long-term use effective DCI is expensive I highly recommend inositol (both d-chiro-inositol and myo-inositol) if you suffer with PCOS and/or hormonal acne. Check the web for clinical studies on inositol's ability to help with acne and other PCOS symptoms. I have been taking myo-inositol (in power form) for 5 months, and DCI for almost 2 months and I am happy with the results! Best taken on an empty stomach. Can take up to 2 cycles to notice improvement, but I noticed res

Long lasting, buildable coverage
doesn't break me out some good ingredients for skin doesn't create lines oxidizes sometimes expensive the old HD foundation formula was better I have some issues with smashbox foundations, but I always return to them because I haven't yet found anything better. They are pricey and tend to oxidize, so I can never match my shade. You need to wear a primer with it to make it last longer, but if you have oily skin you can go without. Sometimes a setting powder is needed to combat shine, but I haven'

Helps with inflammation but do not use every day
helps inflammation can help fade dark spots stings but you get used to it not for everyday use makes skin sensitive to sunlight so only use at night If used only a couple of times a week, it can help with inflammation and skin tone. But I used to use it every day and eventually it aggravated my acne, so now I only use it when I have infected acne or lots of hyperpigmentation. Make sure you buy the 100% lemon juice type, and dilute it with water if it's too strong for you.

Works for melasma and hyperpigmentation, not for acne
light texture vitamin E source helps fade dark spots and melasma Doesn't work for acne A bit expensive I only use oils on acne sparingly because they tend to block my pores. Grapeseed oil has a high concentration of vitamin E, and I found that it helps slowly fade my melasma...but it takes a long time so you need to be patient. I use pure grapeseed oil btw, the kind that's used for cooking. I clicked Yes on recommend, but only for post-acne hyperpigmentation not active acne.

Slight improvement in skin texture sometimes No change in acne No overall lasting improvement messy Not sure what all the hype is about. I tried this several times, both with just water and apple cider vinegar, and I didn't notice a difference in my skin. In fact, I think it made my skin a bit worse, and not because the clay pulled out impurities. I didn't feel it working, even when I left it on for 30 minutes.

By WishClean,

if the water is of GOOD quality, then you are not putting any harmful chemicals on your skin If you are using tap water, you are most likely putting some harmful chemicals on your face that have not been filtered such as fluoride and chlorine. I am reviewing the water only method, not the "not washing" method. If the water is of good, clean quality, then go for it. But if your tap water is questionable, either opt for deionized water or use a bit of facial wash (with no SLS), or spray your face

Sometimes works great, but not always effective Dries out the skin. Is quite sticky and can be hard to remove if you leave it on for longer than 5-10 minutes.
