This cream was a disappointement for me: skin was a bit irritated (I washed out this product shortly) and not moisurized at all. Then I looked at the box and the first line of ingredients looks like that: Water, glycerin, ALCOHOL DENAT., Silica, Lavender extract... And only after this there come all herbal extracts that are mentioned on the box on this website. I would never buy a cream that contains so much of alcohol. There was no information about it on iherb, so please update your product description. For me personally it was a waste of money.

The texture is quite thick, but I apply it with a special brush, so there is no problem regarding this issue. It has a nice natural rosy smell which is an advantage for me. It also moisturizes well (the ingredients are great!) but may be not suitable for an oily skin. The only dissapointment is color. I usualy use the lightest shade of mineral powder and I prefer more "pinkish" shade of a powder. This CC creme is yellowish, so it is pretty visible on my pale skin. Therefore I have to use my usual powder to enlighten certain areas. It would be great if Andalou Naturals could provide the same type of CC creme only Fair shade...

I think this creme is a good bargain - an affordable price for 30 ml which will last very long. It is a good moisturizer first of all and gentle for the skin around the eyes. I have only small mimic wrinkles below my eyes, and this creme seems to have a gentle lifting effect (but no stretching). I don't know how it would work on someone with deeper wrinkles, but on me it works just fine, the cosmetic effect is pretty visible. However, I use this creme only at night as it contains retinol and some extracts of the citrus that may be photosensitive. I'm really waiting for the Autumn when I will be able to walk in a daylight with this creme :)

I adore this enzyme mask since it cleanses skin effecticely and is gentle enough for my thin skin. I put it on my face for 5 minutes (just as recommended) once a week. There is a mild tingling sensation till the mask is on the skin, but it is normal because the enzymes "eat" dead skin cells. After washing out tingle disappears and sking becomes softer and more even. The mask helps me fighting with skin impurities and I don't need to use mechanical scrubs (e.g., sugar) anymore.

I am very fond of this facial scrub with sugar. It is good that sugal is melting and you can not make too much damage while rubbing into the face. For those who want more gentle scrub, they should rince with wet hands (then sugar melts faster). If one wants to brush a bit harder, there should be less water on the hands. For me it is sufficient to use this scrub once or twice per week. It cleans the skin efficiently and somewhat brightens.
At first I did not understand if there was any effect of this toner. Only after using it for some time I noticed that it moisturizes and reliefs the stretching after cleansing the face. This moisturing is mild but sufficient for my normal skin. It does not leave my skin greasy and does not cause any breakouts. The bottle in a form of a spray is very comfortable as well, the toner is not wasted in pieces of cotton .

It is difficult to get this powder from the package when it is new and pressed in the jar. For this reason I was forced to open the jar since I got annoyed with looooong tapping in order a single drop would fell out of those holes... The powder itself seems to be a good quality, it lasts ok. However, I expected it to be ROSY as it is mentioned in description of this 1C powder. It is described that this one is the rosiest shade. At this point I was disappointed since it has absolutely no rosiness (I would say the color is yellowish/neutral). I will finish this powder, it looks OK on my skin, bus JUST OK, not great because it has no rosy shade that would make my skin look more lively and radiant.

it is a wonderful product that absorbs very quickly to the skin and leaves it moistured and soft. The lotion is not too heavy and leaves no greasy film on the skin which I like. Ingrediens and consistence are great, so I often use it for my face instead of a daily cream. It works really well. I will buy more. Maybe first I will try other body lotions from Acure.
It's my second package of this lip tint. When it arrived for the first time I was confused about the colour - the liquid in a bottle looks really dark, dark cherry-aubergine shade, I would say. But when applying it on the lips it is rather transparent, gives a very natural look, just brightens lips in a visible but natural way. Of course, it is possible to brighten them more by applying 2 or 3 layers. Tint gives a very natural sensation, is not greasy or sticky, and very light; I almost don't feel it on the lips. It does not last very long, but I did not expect an 'extra hold' from such natural product.
Big bottle. Very flavorful, fine minced. Will definitely buy again when this one ends.
