Tried this product under my eyes and woke up with the skin under my eyes looking very dry. Don't know if its this particular brand of vitamin e oil, but this product made my fine lines look worse. Now it's just sitting in my medicine cabinet.
Moisturizers -TheFACEShop - Calendula Essential Moisture Cream
KBaylie 10/28/2011 2:36:00 AM
This product stung my eyes and broke me out like crazy! It has a nice pleasant scent, similar to Ponds. The consistency is sort of like a gel mixed with cream. Also, upon application it seemed to really sit on top of my face and did not completely sink in. However, it did feel really moisturizing. Once I washed it off my skin looked and felt really dry around my mouth. Weird. I traveled 45 minutes just to buy a few products from The Face Shop, but this really turned me off to their products. Plus, I can't find an ingredients list. I really wanted to like their products, but my skin reacted negatively.
Concealers -Unlisted Brand - Kevin Beautymaker - Aqua Eye Concealer

This concealer does nothing for me. Yes, it brighten upon application, but it has no staying power. This product is the equivalent of a drugstore concealer.
I absolutely loved this concealer at first, but now I hate it! It fades after a few hours and creases like crazy! Yes, one tube does last me about a whole year, but I'd rather not spend money on something that is mediocre.
Treatments -Avalon Organics Botanicals - Vitamin C Vitality Facial Serum

This product irritated my eyes, made my under eye circles looks worse and made me break out in dark patches on the sides of my face. There were no noticeable improvements. I'm returning this asap!
Makeup Brushes -Shu Uemura - Natural 18 Goat Foundation Brush
KBaylie 10/20/2011 4:14:00 AM
I do NOT like this brush. I'm not sure what it is, but everyone seems to love this brush. Foundation goes on streaky no matter which way I apply it, and I never get a natural finish. And ever since I washed it, the bristles are all splayed out and the brush head looks horrible. It looks like the brush has been used and abused and I've only used it less then five times! Worst brush ever.
This made my face feel a lot firmer, however, that's the only change I noticed. It didn't make my face any brighter, although I do like like this cream. I will repurchase if I don't find something better. Update on 10/30/11: I love this moisturizer! My face is clearer, brighter, firmer and feels very soft. I stopped using this for a while and I noticed that my face didn't feel as firm, so the firmness that you get from this product isn't permanent. However, I will keep using this. I just wish it weren't so damn expensive! I'd pay the amount they charge for it if I got at least 3 ounces of product, but there is only 1.7 ounces of product! For this reason, I will stop using this if or when I find something better.
Makeup Brushes -Real Techniques by Samantha Chapman - Blush Brush

I'm not a fan of this particular brush. I used it for blush and wasn't impressed. I have other brushes within the same price range or even cheaper that do a better job. Not only that, but the bristles are too flimsy for my taste. I am a fan of Sam Chapman and hope to try the stippling brush next. Hope it performs better than this brush!
Sunscreen -Shiseido - Extra Smooth Sun Protection Cream For Face SPF38
KBaylie 5/6/2011 4:37:00 AM
Broke me out and caused tiny little bumps under my eyes.
Use with caution. After reading all the great reviews, I decided to give this a try. I used plain yogurt all over my face and after about 2 full minutes, my face started to sting. I tried to ignore it but couldn't. I ran to the bathroom and washed it off. Prior to using this mask, my skin was finally beginning to clear up. Now its broken out again! And its a bad breakout. If this is what this mask did to me after only 2 minutes, then I wonder how my face would have looked after the full 15 minutes that I planned to wear it for! If you are acne prone like me, I would beware of this mask. I washed it off about ten minutes ago and it still stings a little. I won't use this ever again!
Shampoo -Suave - Professionals Almond & Shea Butter
KBaylie 4/14/2011 11:45:00 PM
Who knew something so inexpensive could work so great? My hair is shiny, smooth and silky. Prior to using this, I was using Joico, but it dried out my hair like you wouldn't believe. I gave up on the expensive stuff because it just wasn't working for me. I feel like I've tried all the drugstore shampoos out there and this is the best one for me so far. I will use this until I find something better. Update on 10/30/11: Seems to be drying out my hair a bit, but still works better then others. I'm knocking off one lippie.
Lip Gloss -Unlisted Brand - Motives Lip Gels Pink Mimosa
KBaylie 4/14/2011 3:46:00 PM
What's up with the Motives website? I ordered on lip product and they tried to charge me $7.99 for shipping! Really? For something that only weighs less then an ounce? What a rip-off! I will never order from Motives. I emailed their customer service and they said they wouldn't be able to help me. They sure know how to build their customer base! I'm annoyed at the YT gurus that promote them!
Makeup Brushes -Sigma - F80 Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki (was SS197)
KBaylie 4/14/2011 3:36:00 PM
The hype is true. Great brush. Don't use too much product or you will overload. The key with this brush is simply that less is more.
This product has caused my left eye to become swollen and irritated. It's been a whole entire day and the swelling has still not gone down. It did clear some of my acne, but I don't want a swollen eye to go along with it. This went back to CVS.
Treatments (Eye) -Kiehls - Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado
KBaylie 4/11/2011 3:49:00 AM
I picked up a sample of this at Nordstrom and at first I liked it a lot, but then I started getting tiny bumps around my orbital bone and my under eye area, as well as the sides of my nose. I do not break out on my nose, ever, but while using this I had 5-6 pimples on my nose. Not attractive. Though the kiehls website claims that this does not migrate, I find that it does. While using this, my eyes always felt dry in the morning. That is something that happens to me when eye creams tend to migrate. I stopped using this and my breakout cleared up, so this eye cream is the culprit. Overall, I will not be buying this product again.
