    Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

    Here's what BuzzFeed writer Maitland Quitmeyer had to say about the one she owns: "The acne scars on my cheeks from a series of breakouts are fading fast, and I get new acne very rarely — they're more like a pimple here and there occasionally when I have to fly somewhere (curse you, dry airplanes) or get stressed or... who even knows why my skin freaks out sometimes. Never thought I'd ever put a no-makeup selfie on the internet, but that's how much I love this thing."
