This cream does a good job at removing dead skin cells. It sadly doesn't help with blackheads - for that you need salicylic acid, the only thing that exfoliates and cleans out the inside of your pores and not just the surface. This is not a magical cream, but it does make your skin feel smoother. Remember to use a good moisturizer after you have used this - it's not moisturizing in itself. The cream is potent, but I'm used to glycolic products and had no trouble adapting to the high glycolic percentage. All in all a fairly good enzyme peel at a good price. Could benefit from nicer packaging! The current one is just an ugly white jar.

I use this for a lot of things. It's great for using in the face for a boost of moisture, for removing make-up, for conditioning dull and tired hair, and for dry cuticles. I also mix it with liquid foundation for a dewy glow. You get a lot of product for the price, and remember - one drop goes a long way!
I like this a lot! have tried all the roll on deodorants from this brand, but I can't decide which one I like the most. This one smells really nice and not to strong, and it really lasts all day on me - even through tough workouts. It's a bit thin and runny, though, so be careful when you apply it so you don't spill any of it! Leaves no marks, which is a huge plus.
Wow - this scrub actually feels warming on the skin somehow. It's sugar based and smells like delicious chocolate. It's quite oily, but exfoliates well and leaves your skin silky and smooth. But - the jar is too bulky and the price is too high compared to the small amount of product you get. The jar basically has one inch of space around the contents, which I don't perceive as eco friendly, just annoying.
Note that this should be used as a moisturising serum under other moisturisers. It's very concentrated, and like most hyaluronic serums, it doesn't work on everyone! It can actually make your skin dryer. It does dry me out when used excessively, but I'm keeping it to use it sparingly every now and then, in combination with a good moisturiser. The dropper is very convenient, and the packaging is cute. No English instructions are provided, but I've been using 5-6 drops (one "squirt") on clean skin before applying my other face products.
Potent stuff! I've used this directly on blemishes to try to treat them - not very successfully. The oil is really harsh and makes my eyes water, so I'm not so keen on using it in my face, really. It might be better utilized for cleaning (mixed with vinegar, maybe) or for aromatherapy.

I use this for mushroom risottos in stead of bouillon. It's great! But be careful not to use too much, it's really, really salty. A little goes a long way.
I'm very light skinned (MAC NW13 for reference), and this bronzer gives me a perfect sun kissed warmth. It's not orange at all, yet a tad to warm to be used as a contouring powder in my opinion. I love the fact that it's matte and very silky. Yes, it does smell like piña coladas (i.e. coconut and pineapple), but the scent is not noticeable upon application. If your skin tone is medium to dark, it won't show as well. The only downside to this product is the bulky and clunky packaging. The sponge it comes with (in a compartment under the poweder itself) is totally useless, and the compartment just takes up space. I intend to pop the powder pan out and place it in a different compact for a more minimal, travel-friendly product. But still, this is a great product which I do recommend for all fair/light skinned makeup lovers.
This product is so cool. Put these pads under your eyes - they're black and you can pretend to be a panda for the next 20 minutes. They cool down your eye area and do a decent job of moisturizing. Makes a great gift too.

Easy to make, quick, and delicious. I like the fact that they're not too sweet. Will buy again.
