I received this for free from Influenster. I tried it 3 times with the same result.
It's not a gel at all. It's a thick orange-red paste. It must be dotted along the eye contour area and gently patted in on clean skin. It dries down to a clear film. The film sits on top of your skin and can be peeled off afterwards--it doesn't actually absorb into your skin like an eye gel.
I don't like it because it tugs on the skin and concealer looks unnatural on top of it, so I had to remove it before applying makeup. It didn't seem to do anything to improve the look of my eyes. I also don't suffer from puffy eyes, so maybe this would work for you if you do. I wouldn't recommend or use this again.
I've had hair towels in the past and they were more like a cheap microfiber towel. This one is well made and absorbs water like no other! I have VERY thick hair and it worked well. It's best for short-medium length hair though. It was barely long enough for my medium length hair.
This is a liquid highlighter that packs a lot of shine. I keep wanting to use this on my face, but I generally use powder and I don't want to place this on top afterwards. What it is great for is body highlighting. I put it on my collarbones and shoulders. I don't have to feel bad about using it up because a little goes a long way and at $9.99 for a tube, it's not going to break the bank.
This concealer should be re-named as a creamy highlighter stick! As an undereye concealer it's not very good. It's pretty sheer, the formula is hard and difficult to blend. What it IS great for is highlighting and contouring! I love placing this on my brow bone, forehead, nose, and inner eyes. Its smaller tip makes it easy to draw lines and use it just where I want it.
I recently started using this oil on my face as part of my nightly moisturizing routine and I'm very happy! It's great for spring to add to my night moisturizer before I step up my moisturizer to something heavier for summer. It doesn't clog my pores and it includes antioxidants too!
This is the first liquid highlighter I've ever tried and I gotta say, I'm happy! At first, I was put off by the color, because I'm very fair and thought it wouldn't match my skin tone. Not so! If I use just a little bit, it melts into my skin and provides just the right amount of shine. A little bit goes a LONG way, which I love! That means I can even mix some with BB cream or sunscreen for an all over glow.
Can we talk about the coconut for a second? It's subtle and classy--just the right amount of tropical without screaming, "I applied a scented product today!" It's like your little secret. Hello, summer, me and my Marc Jacobs Beauty Dew Drops are coming for you!

I'm very pleased with SK-II! I have combination skin which tends to be more dry than oily. Sometimes harsher makeup removers/cleansers can strip away too much moisture from my skin leaving it dry and tight. First, this cleanser had a pleasant floral scent. The consistency and texture were good--it felt light on my skin and not goopy like gel cleansers. It combined easily with water to form a partial foam. I don't wear a ton of makeup, but it did a great job removing what I do wear and left my skin feeling fresh and light.
I like to brew 2L of this tea at a time as cold brew tea. It's a great afternoon pick me up and it's SO refreshing in the summer months. I simply use about 15g of tea per liter of water and let it sit in my fridge overnight. The next day I have cold brew tea that's not too bitter from brewing and it has a delicious peach taste!
