not true 100% argan oil
I have used different brands of organic argan oil for years. This Now organ oil is very different than the ones I had used. First, it smells like rotten meat :(. Second, it refrigerates differently than my other pure organic organ oils. This is unlikely 100% pure and fresh argan oil. I am sure of it from my experience. In addition, they placed a plastic dropper inside the bottle, and the cap does not stay secure on the bottle (maybe that is why it smells rancid). From now on I will continue buying argan oil from reliable sources that put quality first in their products.
Evens skin tone and nice ingredients

My skin tone is light with neutral undertones. I love this spf product! It evens my skin tone, but it is not full coverage. It hydrates my skin and smells lovely (it has rose extract along with some rose essential oils). I like it better than their BB cream because their BB cream contains citrus essential oils which are controversial in causing photo sensitivity. I think this CC creams will be good for both fair and light tones.
Lots of rubbing alcohol in it

As soon as I applied it on my face I noticed a strong rubbing alcohol smell to it. I looked at the ingredients and noticed it is the 2nd ingredient in the serum! Isopropyl alcohol is horrible for the skin, and even worse for your health. You can do your own research at how this ingredients affects you. It is also a very cheap "filler" ingredient in a serum that could have been replaced with something more beneficial and less toxic. In addition, the consistency of this serum is like a tacky serum that does not absorb and stays onto the skin, with a very sticky feeling to it.
Great for fair skin

I like how nicely this absorbs into skin and leaves the skin moisturized. It has some coverage, but quite minimal compared to a foundation. I have light skin tone (NC25-30), and I feel that the shade for this BB cream is a little bit too light for me. I gave it to a friend that is quite pale, and she like it. However, I wish they would take out the citrus essential oils; some sources indicate that they could cause photosensitivity and I would think that it should not be present in a sunscreen product.
Oh my lord =) I love this serum. It absorbs like a dream. If you put too much it may be tacky, but once you get the hang of it of how much to put on the skin it absorbs immediately. I love the smell too. And most importantly u love the results. It has magnesium ascorbyl palmitate which is amazing for the skin, something that unfortunately the Avalon organic vitamin c vitality serum stopped putting in their new formula (yet they still call it vitamin c serum?). I found this as an alternative, and it is a thousand times better and more effective! I'm haapy :)
very soothing for irritated skin

I love this ointment and I use it usually after a chemical peel or after some facial routine or exfoliation that leaves me my skin a bit irritated. I started using this around my eyes and love the way it moisturizes and gives me powerful antioxidants for my skin. It smells quite strong of geranium essential oil, but this does not bother me.
Too bad this is in a plastic bottle. I don't wasn't to ingest plastic leeching out into an extract. I am a grad student and have read too much about plastic and its properties. An extract meant to enhance your health should not be placed into a plastic bottle that would likely have the opposite effects on your health.
This improved my skin a lot. In the morning even after washing the cream off my skin felt so moisturized and plumped up that my fine lines looked softer. This will be a staple in my skin routine for sure. I love that it does not have water as its first ingredient, so it is not diluted at all. It has a soft smells that I think comes from the ingredients and extracts in it. It absorbs well as long as you don't put a ton of it on the skin. This winter this was a skinsaver!!! I am on my second jar of this. By the way it comes in a glass jar! :) no plastic leeching into it...love it!
I use this about 3 days per week, and I can notice a difference. It is a great exfoliant, I notice how smooth m skin is afterwards. I had repurchased this in the past and I will continue to do so in the future. It has 6% acids in it and it is a good alpha enzyme peel for beginners.
love the results I get from this
I love this product! My skin looks so amazing the day after I use this! In addition it is a liquid so it absorbs very well into the skin. It has a strong scent from the essential oils, but I got used to it quick. My pores are looking better and my skin glows. I will repurchase it for sure.
my hair is like a bird's nest after I wash it. This works like a charm at detangling my hair and also providing some moisture in it. It does not wear the hair down at all, which is a great plus!
good product with few ingredients

I was very excited to see a naturally based product with salicylic acid and glycolic acids. But I had to take a star off for the very expensive price of $70 dollars for just 30 pads....I found an alternative natural alpha peel that is just as good for 1/4 of the price. This is too pricy.
