Moisturizers -Good Skin - All Right Oil-Free Lotion

Very good day time lotion with spf15. Matte finish, howeve it does not hold well for hot and humid weather and gets sticky and running. Not very cheap $20 for 1.7 oz. I will try Aveeno facial lotion (spf15 or spf30) next time.

A very creamy rich day cream with spf 15. It absobed well by the skin leaves almost no grease and causes no break-out. It suits with dry skin better in my opinion.
Very nice cream without being greasy. This makes a great facial cream for winter time. The texture and quality is very close to discontinued Dove Energy Glow Brightening Moisturizer SPF 15. It has SPF28 which is good to skin. I definitely will repurchase it .
I am fine with everything else of this product except the scrub contains very sharp particles. It hurts when I try to rub the scrub onto my skin. I prefer St. Ive's scrub which has better quality and is cheaper.
Very gentle facial wash and cleans very well. It does not dry out skin at all. Great DS facial cleanser.

I have been using this for almost a week. It is a very comfortable night cream and not greasy at all. It is absorbed by the skin well and the finish is more on the matte side. To me it is just a very regular light weighted lotion and I have not see any "anti-aging or anti-wrinkle" effect.
This product is already discontinued by Revlon. I got it for $4.00 on sale. I basically use it as a night lotion (it is too matte) because of its higher grape seed oil content. The texture of it is kind pastry as well as semi-greasy when just applied. It becomes more matte and gives kind of powdery feel the next morning. It smells like many of the Eurcerin lotions (I think the smell is from shear butter which I do not like). It is a so-so product and I will not pay a full price for it (full price is $13.00).

Great product. Provides enough moisture but not greasy. Improves skin fine lines and wrinkles. I have oily skin, so I probably will not use this in summer. For the price, it is a good deal. I will buy it again when it runs out.
Crème -L'Oreal - True Match Super Blendable Compact Makeup
Baiju 4/10/2010 11:26:00 PM
This product is a cream-to-powder type foundation however is more on the creamy side. I got color w3 for my NC25 Asian skin(light-medium with a yellow under tone). It gives a very fine powdery finish but the powder clings to any dry skins on the face. I like everything else except its accentuating the dry skin. I really like the old version of L'Oreal stick foundation and wish this True Match Super Blendable Compact Makeup would perform the same. After trying it today, I saw very little hope. I am going back to my Revlon Age defying liquid makeup for now. I will try to decide which foundation I am going to use after I used up my current Revlon foundation. Most likely I will repurchase Revlon Age defying Makeup for normal/combination skins in color nude.

I got this as a sample. It is a pretty creamy lotion which would be a fair night cream. There is nothing special in terms of cell benefit agents. It does nothing for lines or wrinkles. Not very impressive.
A very good concealer particularly good for acne marks and large pores. It comes in a tube which makes everything very simple and easy. The conclear comes out as a creamy form and is set as a full powdery coverage. And it lasts quite long (5-6 hours). I am Nc25 and got light color.

A very smooth, non-greasy, light, and comfortable moisturizer. Not the best serum comparing to department store products, however a fairly good serum in DS. I use it at night and it keep my skin plumped and soft. It does improve my whole complexion (I am sure it does not lift anything). My skin has been better, especially it made it a lot easier to apply the foundations the second morning.
This foundation is not for every skin conditions, however it is nearly a perfect foundaiton. The product is lighter version of CS with less heavy feel and some tiny glitters (it shows under the sun light). It is more creamier and more smooth when applied. It does cling to dry patches and flakes but problem could be sloved by a better exfoliation and moisturization the night before. It does have an almost full coverage and is able to diminish pores (not large ones, it will pool right into large pores) to the best extent as good concealers. Upon finish, when powder is applied, it does give a beautiful airbrush and almost matte finish. I am NC25 and I got nude color and it is a very good match. I have oily skins with large pores and dry flakes. The foundation lasts on me for a good 6 hours in a warm day. I am happy with the product. It is a very comfortable and light feel foundation. If one has good smooth and young skin, this one is the best foundation on the market. Edit: -Revlon should develop more color choices. I think nude is a bit too tan for me. However, shell is too light. I have to mix those two. -too shimmery under the sun and it makes my pores very obvious -need a touch-up after 4-5 hours and still maintains a good coverage. Most of the shimmer is gone after mid-day touch-up. -gets oily at the end of the day -still think it is a great product for a perfect young skin -I think I will go back to Revlon CS because of the shimmer

One of the best concealers I have been used. Full coverage for pores and acne scares. Very creamy and smooth. Gives perfect finish. Comes in a tube which I like the best.
It really dried out my under eye skins. By the end of the day, my under eye dark circle is just more obvious. I use this one to cover my pores and acne scares and it works great. I have in light/medium and is the right color for my cheeks but too dark for under eye.
