The smell and feel of this lotion is lovely, and the morning after applying this I notice my skin looks very moisturised. However I think the high amounts of silicone in this (dimethicone is 4th on the ingredients list) combined with the fatty alcohols might be aggravating my closed comedones.
The pH on this thing is WAY too high (tested it using pH strips), it's also super stripping and really heavily fragranced, and if any gets anywhere near your eye they will burn for at least 5 minutes. Super disappointed.
I've tried numerous highlights (mary loumanizer, sleek solstice palette, becca, colourpop) and I have to say this is the one I reach for the most. I like that I can sheer it out to look like a suttle, dewy glow, or build it up to be as intense as the sleek and the becca highlights. The product comes with hard-pan, but a quick scrub with a spoolie and it transforms into a beautiful, buttery, pigmented highlight. The colour is kind of a champagne gold that is great for pale skins and it really compliments my undertones (olive).
My skin absolutely looooves this stuff. It's got really great and natural ingredients for one; no alcohol and no parabens. Every time I pat this into my skin after cleansing it feels as if my skin is taking a nice long drink. The smell is so wonderful too. I would highly recommend!
I'm really impressed with this clay. The first time I tried it it kind of terrified me because I could feel the mask making my skin pulse, and it's also really painful to wait for it to dry. When I finally take it off though I can see all of the gunk that the mask has pulled up to surface, and all the pain I suffered for it is worth it to me! Beware of this stuff clogging up your sink (it happened to me after using this for 3 months), I wash it off in a large bowl and then empty the contents in my garden.

I have combination oily/dehydrated skin, and it's reaaally hard to find a base product that will be able to sit on my skin without emphasising dry patches, as well as controlling my oiliness throughout the day. This product does that and more. It doesn't have a matte finish, it's got a beautiful satin finish that is super lightweight and looks like nothing on the skin. It blends like a dream with a sponge, and for a Korean bb cream it's actually got really decent coverage. Another huge plus for me is the high spf this has which has made this part of my go to daily makeup routine. My skin actually feels moisturised with this which tricks it into producing less oil throughout the day.The packaging also holds nearly double the product volume of an average drugstore foundation, while keeping a reasonable price! I cannot sing enough praises about this product, it's holy grail for me for sure. I will admit however that the people complaining about the smell of this are right; this stuff smells like really pungent baby powder, very artificial and strong. It's also got a grey cast (but nothing a little bronzer can't fix). Overall the benefits of this product for me far outweigh the cons. I love this stuff.

The product itself feels like a weird hybrid between a cream and powder that smells like a delicious piña colada and blends BEAUTIFULLY. I went off suggestions online and got the darkest of the two, and I'm glad I did because if this was any lighter this would not show up on me. It has a gorgeous satin finish and if you look closely at the powder you can tell there are very tiny, minuscule shimmer particles throughout it. The packaging is adorable! Highly recommend for people with fair skin. Unfortunately I don't think this product would be suitable for people of colour :( really wish PF would expand their colour range for these kinds of products, everyone should be able to enjoy them!
I can't believe how cheap this thing is. It's SUCH a gorgeous shade, very reminiscent of Nars Orgasm. It's less pigmented but it has a beautiful peachy/gold sheen that I love using as a blush topper/highlight. I wouldn't use it as blush alone because if you build it up to actually show up as a blush, the sheen becomes way too intense and it emphasises ALL the texture.
This is really the only makeup sponge I've tried that isn't disposable. I use it wet to apply foundation/bb cream and blend out cream products. It's SUPER soft and bouncy, it does not feel hard against the skin at all and it grows huge when wet. After a couple of months use though it lost most of the orange pigment in the sponge from washing it (I washed it after every use very gently), and it also had a whole bunch of random cuts that just seemed to appear out of nowhere. I'm only taking one star from it because I expected it to last a little longer.
Oh my god the colours in this are so beautiful, and I love that you can customise a highlight for whatever skin tone you have. Honestly though this thing develops some serious hard-pan and once you use it a few times it becomes REALLY difficult to get any pigment without literally scratching the product up. After a while that process gets pretty tedious. I'd recommend the custom nude palette in the shade warm nude that iHerb carries from the same brand instead.
