Update on this: I didn't really know what was going on with my skin, I started have tons and tons of clogged pores, bumps everywhere, and i started to develop cyctic acne! I stopped using it a switched back to Cetaphil and I am fine...
doesn't clean... I used Cetaphil now, it's extremely gentle and cleanses better.
Liquid -Almay - Clear Complexion Blemish Healing Makeup

It's pretty good product! I am not expecting it to clear up my pimples or anything though, as long as it does not cause any breakouts i am happy. Also, the oil control power of this foundation is very very impressive. considering i have super oily skin, and at the end of the day my skin was only slightly oily, it's pretty awesome. the foundation blended well, it's a nice coverage, definitely gives me a better complexion. will buy again.

works at first, then slowing dries my skin and makes it worse.
This cleanser works at first with the whole line. but skin started to deteriorate for some reason, got really really bad...
Moisturizers -Vichy - Normaderm Anti-Imperfection Hydrating Care
jessicababebee 7/1/2008 3:32:00 PM
This is my second time using this line. The first time I had no good results from this, maybe my acne was too severe for this line, afterall this line is for "imperfections", which refer more to tiny red pimples, delated pores, shine, and blackheads. Years later, I decided to give this line another try. OH I AM SOOO GLAD I DID!!!!!!! Ok since this is the review for the hydrating care, I'll just talk about that. This moisturizer absorbs So fast. My skin is left very very soft and smooooth. The softest and smoothest skin I've had since, forever. Then, this is the part that truly made me happy. It controls my oily skin for the WHOLE day. Believe me, I have tried every product for oily skin there is, from harsh cleansers to gentle ones. even using foundations and powders designed to control oil, but to no avail. this, this vichy hydrating care is my holy grail moisturizer! (along with the whole line, of course). NOW, everyone wants to know its power towards imperfections. to that I give this an A+ as well. just before I started using this I got a HUGE zit on the bridge of my nose. the kind that HURTS even when I frown. after i started using this line, the first night later, it's not gone if that's what you're thinking. this ain't magic. my huge zit stopped hurting and it is NOT RED anymore. which is very important because the redness bothers me a lot. three days later it is flat. keep in mind, that zit was gigantic. ok i've wrote enough. one more thing tho, my face has been red for a long time, just red on my cheeks, looks like i am burnt permanently. but now the redness is GONE!! i love you VICHY NORMADERM!
This is seriously the best thing I have ever used. and I know I have tried everything. Even foundation lines designed for oily skin, PLUS the powder won't control my oiliness. Other foundations cake and my oil shines through making it look disgusting. now i LOVE this one. it is SOOOO light, I can't even tell I am wearing makeup. It stays in place the WHOLE day, and controls my oil ALL DAY as well. One night I went home at 11pm, and thought man my face must look so shiny I can see myself in it. but god it shocked me when i looked at the mirror. NO SHINE. and the makeup was still in place, matte, and light. Oh dear, all in all, this is so freaking good. and did i mention it doesn't feel like, or LOOK like i am wearing foundation at all!? ( and it does cover up imperfections, and makes you look very naturally flawless.)
This is HORRIBLE. Oh my god, there is no a freaking thing calming about it. I am curious, how come so many people have strange reactions to this product, which is made for SENSITIVE skin... I don't really have sensitive skin, and I got a terrible reaction to this line. I've been using the whole line for about a week, and from the third day, my face started to feel itchy. I thought it was just some temporary. But patchs of bumps, tiny bumps clustered together on parts of my face, they itch and they are red, and rough to the touch, AND with a strange sheen on them. ER!!! I HAVE NEVER! NEVER had this happen to me, it is devastating. to hell with this line.
Pressed Powders -Almay - Clear Complexion Light & Perfect Pressed Powder

This product has a very weird texture to it, the powder is so thick and yucky! when i put this on, it immediately makes my skin look chalky. it doesn't really control oil that well anyway. and it does nothing to clear up my skin. I think i'll go for somehting that has a finer texture.
actually this is only my first day wearing this mascara. it gives me so much volume! i love it so far, except for i don't know if it's going to smudge later on in the day.

This mascara does lengthen my lashes, but it is very hard to dry. there's no clumps here though. also it makes my lashes look thick. it's awsome overall.
Moisturizers -Cetaphil - Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF15

I tried very hard to like this product, telling myself that sun protection is important and it will do me good. but, it makes my face so oily within a few hours, it's gross. I am not going to use this product as a daily moisturizer. The moisturizing lotion is so much better.
Er.... bad bad product. well. people, if you have sensitive or problem skin, don't use it. I have both. my skin tend to breakout every easily, but now i am using Cetaphil and everything gentle. my skin has never looked better. then i thought maybe is i used a little scrub it'd be even better!! but i was wrong!! right after i scrub, my skin was really smooth, i was happy. but after a few times of using it, i started to breakout, little tiny bumps on my face. and then i stopped using it. cuz i was so scared.... then the bumps just went away....

This thing is awsome! Like some people say it balls up with their moisturizer. but me? no! it makes my moisturizer go on so smoothly!! and it definately does not dry out my skin. it's so gentle. i use it to prevent breakouts. it does the job wonderfully.though it's a bit expensive. but a few bucks a months to keep your skin beautiful, would you do it? p.s. have to use with a gentle cleanser. i use Cetaphil.
This is the most natural looking makeup i've ever tried. i even wondered if it's really on my face, or it's been absorbed into the sponge. i used the shade "Sand", it's yellow undertoned, and my skin is a little tanned. so it's perfect. the coverage, um, it's kind of light. but it's no problem. i'll just layer it a bit when i want more coverage, since it's SO naturally looking!!!
