Works ok for brows. Tried it for eyeliner (as advertised) & it smudged too soon.
Works ok. Nothing covers my undereye circles. As I get to the end of the tube, it has thickened & glopped up where it comes out, so the dispenser is messy. I will have to toss it soon. I think I will repurchase because it does have decent coverage.
Concealers -Physicians Formula - Powder Finish Concealer Stick (Green)

Thick coverage that mostly works. I use it at the outside corners of my eyes & nose. Sometimes I use it on my nose, which actually tends to be the reddest part, if I'm using a stronger foundation that day. Really it's only for spots due to the texture. If you use it for large areas, it draws attention.
Powder -Neutrogena - mineral sheers mineral powder foundation-fair to light

What I like about this IS the packaging. If you want to apply a lightweight mineral foundation without mess or in the car (bet no one here does that!), this is great. The product is very portable. It is uneven in how it dispenses. Sometimes you have to really whack the bottle. Also it makes a cloud, but that's expected with loose powder. It doesn't hold up to sweat or serious oil. Basically it's more coverage than regular powder.
Toners -Clean & Clear - Cooling Daily Pore Toner [DISCONTINUED]

I initially liked the cooling feel. But after a few weeks I noticed that my skin had dried out & my nose was RED, so much that people commented on it. I didn't think it could be this toner Duh because it felt like it worked. But the skin problem went away once I stopped using it. I'm pretty cheap so I usually use something all up but this went right in the trash.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Deep Clean Facial Cleanser

I use this at night. It works great at taking off makeup & makes my skin feel clean. I lather it up real good. It comes in a basic pump dispenser, no fancy packaging.
Tinted Moisturizer -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Enhancer SPF 20

Blends nicely & evens out the tone of my skin. Even works on my T-zone. But it takes a lot to do the job.
Works ok but the blue beads they haunt my dreams. Well anyway they're impossible to rinse away completely. I had one get embedded in the skin on my nose. I thought it was a blackhead but anyway that didn't help my pores! Despite lots of rinsing in the shower, I generally find one in my hair later. Will finish but NEVER buy again.
Looks like mud. Small tube is ok as you only use a small amount. I love the texture of my skin after I use it. The reason I wouldn't buy it again is that it's so hard to get off, of everything. If it touches the sink, it doesn't rinse off!. I think another use of artic peat must be super glue.
I really wanted to like this because of the ads. I liked the brush. It went on nice. But the non-waterproof was so non-waterproof! It leaked under my eyes in an hour! I didn't know there was a wp version so I'm going to look for it.
Treatments (Eye) -Lumene - Intensive Renewing Eye Serum

Wonderful. I am so glad I tried this! It FEELS great going on as a smooth liquid & the roller ball is neat. I don't know that it is better than other eye creams on the market, but it does work. It is slightly thicker than I'd like sitting on my skin but gets absorbed overnight.
Liked the brush. It did define my tiny corner lashes. Nice lightweight "natural" effect. But it SMUDGES. So I get that lovely natural raccoon look. I used the waterproof kind. Still searching for a mascara that stays put...

Applicator feels great. Works okay. Nothing covers enough for my dark circles...
Lotions/ Creams -Neutrogena - Norwegian Formula Hand Cream
Verrine 2/19/2006 9:36:00 AM
This is the HG of hand creams. Everything else is just to feel or smell good. This stuff works! No fragrance, which I like. It is very thick & you only need a little, so the price is ok compared to the big bottles of stuff that don't work. I use it all the time in the winter & every night no matter what season. I get it in packs of three at the warehouse store & keep one next to my bed, in the car, in my desk at work, & in the kitchen.
Skincare - Face -Pro Activ - Advanced Blemish Treatment

How is benzoly peroxide advanced? Dries out the pimple & anything else it touches so be very precise. Also tube always squirts extra. Maybe that's me.
