Liquid -American Beauty - Perfectly Even Natural Finish Foundation

I, too, am trying to find a good substitute for Skin Stays Clean. Unfortunately this isn't it. It feels a little weird (slimey) going on, but then settles on the face nicely. However, by 11:30a.m. it's pretty much melted. Not a bad product, but for me not the right one.
I haven't used this product since college but picked it up on a whim about a month ago. Actually, I should clarify that I bought the Equate version. It has been working really well for me. My skin is clear and smooth with this cleanser. I can't say I love the packaging because it's a bit awkward in the shower, but I don't know that there is any better way to package something of this consistency. I hope it keeps working the way it has been because my skin has never looked better!
Moisturizers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Olive Oil

I have been using olive oil lately as a bath oil and it's fantastic!! My skin gets scaly on my upper arms in the winter and a bath is murder to my skin but with a little olive oil in the tub it's actually beneficial. As for breakouts, I had some on my back due to using some really cloggin lotion but the olive oil seemed to not bother it at all... in fact the breakout cleared up in record time. I use a bit on my face occasionally and my skin is always smooth after. I keep expecting it to break me out, but it doesn't.

I really like how this makes my skin feel ultra smooth. The container isn't ideal, but it works well enough for me. It's not harsh at all, but I can see a difference when I use it!

It smells so good, but treat my hair so bad!!! The combo of thee shamppo and conditioner just doesn't give much moisture too my hair. I would love for this shampoo to be great because the smell is heaven and stays in my hair all day.

Okay the packaging does stink on this stuff, but the powder itself I love. Goes on smooth and keeps the oilies away.
Yuck... I never could get this to go on my face without streaking and feeling too wet. Some people may like the tube, but I always ended up with too much coming out.
I love this eyeshadow. It stays all day as the name implies... I used to always get greasy creases. I bought the khaki quad because it was recommended in Lucky for green eyes. I love the blendability of the shadows and the fact that I can create several looks. None of the colors overpower my pale skin. My only complaint would be I don't like the skinny wand for applying (yes I really do use the wands) so I replaced it. No big deal.
I tried the generic version of this... I expected it to be a shampoo and conditioner I used only occasionally to clarify my hair, but it works so well I use it almost every day. It doesn't dry my hair at all. Just leaves shiny, full bodied hair. Love it.
I bought this on a whim -- which is how I usually buy my hair coloring. I have medium red hair and prefer it a darkish auburn. I usually choose a brown tone with some bronze or copper tones as I don't need any help with the red. I chose the mahogany shade of this dye and I have to say it turned out darker than I expected, but the shade is still flattering. I am assuming it will fade a bit over the next few days. Using the dye was easy and the smell was not bad. My hair doesn't look dry... it's shiny and managable. I'd definately buy again if I can find a shade I particularly like.

So far this stuff is working out great. I've been using it about a week. It does seem to help my blotchy skin and hasn't made me break out. I have skin that gets pretty oily sometimes, but so far it doesn't seem to cause an oil slick. I like how it goes on, light but covers what I need it to cover.
Styling Products -Alberto Vo5 - Whipped Volume Mousse

I have bad hair days every time I use it. It leaves my hair flat and lifeless. The only thing positive I can say is it doesn't take the shine out of my hair. I had the same problems with the packaging... the cap keeps falling off and the mousse comes out when the can is bumped.
Cleansers -Olay - Age Defying Daily Renewal Cleanser

I have used this off and on for several years. It's a pretty good cleanser but my face never feels completely clean when I've used it. I always feel like a residue of some sort remains. I love most Olay prodcuts, but this isn't my favorite.

I got this as a sample and I love it. It's great for my pores without stinging or drying. Just leaves my skin smooth and even.
