    "I am never not tired, so I am a sucker for any product that helps wake me. These are a great alternative to holding cold spoons under your eyes and are a treat for your skin. When I peel off them off, my under-eye area feels moisturized and plump, and there's enough product left to massage around my entire face, so the rest of my mug gets a healthy dose of hydration, too. They actually stay in place pretty well, so I don't have to be fully horizontal for twenty minutes while they work their magic." - Alice Prendergast

    Ignacia Fulcher / BuzzFeed

The formula is really buildable, so even though it says it’s medium-full coverage, you can do a full-on club look if you decide to apply multiple layers on your beautiful face. I will say that it covers up my hyperpigmentation really well without me even trying, and it doesn’t feel cakey or dry even after I've had it on the whole day." —Ignacia Fulcher

    “The photo above is the difference after six treatments. What the pictures don't show you is the ridiculous difference in texture. I went from having super-fine, dry, rough hair that would probably give you a splinter to the hair of Marcia Brady's dreams. I'm not saying I have envy-inducing, tell-me-your-secret hair, but I do have the best hair I've ever had since I started experiencing the tolls of every-six-weeks-highlights." - Elena Garcia

    Victoria Kuglin/BuzzFeed

    "There's a slight tingly sensation as the product dries on the skin, but I didn't notice any irritation, itchiness, or reaction at all. My nose — a breeding ground for blackheads for the last decade — looked brand-spankin'-new. My skin felt velvety soft, and my pores looked almost invisible, not to mention clean as a whistle. Application might be a tiny bit messy (I looked like I was covered in icing sugar about three minutes in), but it's 100% worth it. BRB while I use this to detox my entire face during my next hormonal breakout." —Victoria Kuglin
