Moisturizers -Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Moisture Gel

AWESOME, AMAZING stuff! I have very oily skin that gets very flaky. This completely balances my skin and feels silky smooth, never greasy. If it had SPF in it, I think I'd sell my soul to it! LOL! I experienced none of the irratation others have experience, although I do not use it around my eyes.
I used this for about a month and saw no difference in my skin. I still broke out like normal but it didn't cause dryness or allergy, and no clogged pores. Whats worked better for me is Paula's BFS and some prescription acne products.

No this is GOOD stuff! I use it after toner 1 or 2 times a day all over my acne prone areas. It keeps acne away and since I've been using it my breakouts have dramatically drecreased. It hasn't caused redness like other acne treatment products. Simple packaging and a great value, considering the size you get virus other products. Will repurchase!

I rave about this all over the boards because I love it so much! It's the perfect toner for my oily, acne prone skin. Removes dirt and oil with out a problem. No irritation, and no dryness. A+++.I'm almost done with my 8 oz bottle and I will repurchase!
Fianlly I found it! My holy grail cleanser! My skin is very oily and acne prone but gets very flaky also. This cleans well and removes the full face of makeup I wear each day. It doesn't irritate my skin at all, it actually looks more soothed after washing. No breakouts, no dryness. It's very reasonalbly priced and I will definitely continue using! A+++++++++++++
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Oil Free Foaming Facial Cleanser

This cleaned my face well, foamed nicely and smelt OK but I am allergic to Trisolin. =(
Eww, hated this. My lemming went crazy for it, but when I got it and tried it on, it looked awful on me. It is a pinky peach shade that leans more pink. On my lips it was HOT PINK. Barbie colored! I can pull off I lot of shades, like MAC Lychee Luxe, but this just looks odd. I think its too warm for my cool/neutral skin. I am a NC20, Aveda Aster, Stila B.
Polishes -Mary Kay - Salon Direct Long-Wearing Nail Enamel

These are nice, they glide on smooth and not streaky at all. They have great colors. With a top coat and base coat these will last a week on me. Pretty darn good!
Wow, I really like this! It gives high shine and keeps my nail polish on for a week or so. The only product I like better is OPI top coat which lasts a bit longer (more like 10 days).
Treatments -Neutrogena - On the Spot Acne Treatment Vanishing Formula

Works overnight? HA! This zaped my blemishes in 3 days, minimum. The 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide didn't dry out my skin, which was good. You only get .75 oz for around $4.00, so if you shell out $9.99, you can get 4 oz of Paula's Choice Blemish Fighting Solution for a lot less.
These are just like the Stila Lip Shines: AWFUL! They are thick and goopy in texture and last a good amount, but some shades have too much glitter. The packaging alone is enough not to buy them though: spilled out all over my purse, and impossible to travel with. Poo!
Concealers -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Concealer

I like the click pen, but thats about it. These don't blend well at all, leaving obvious concealer marks. Also, you'd need a seperate concealer for the under eye area. The 2% Salicylic Acid is just enough to irratate your eyes, but won't really clear your skin. :/
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Roller Color loose powder eyeshadow
Soybeans236 4/26/2003 7:27:00 PM
These are such a fun concept and really do roll on easily. I like it, but if you are a glitter phobic, stay away. They may be a little over the top for work/school. They lasted well with and e/s base too. Rave from me!
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - Roller Color in 'On Track Lilac'
Soybeans236 4/26/2003 7:26:00 PM
These are such a fun concept and really do roll on easily. On Track Lilac was a great medium purple shade (Similar to Stila Key on me). It really flattered my blue eyes. I like it, but if you are a glitter phobic, stay away. They may be a little over the top for work/school. They lasted well with and e/s base too. Rave from me!
I really like this product. It lathers up really well and the pump is nice. I thought it smelled like bug spray, but maybe thats just me. It contains 2% Salicylic Acid and did help clear my skin up again. I've started using more mild products while my skin is on Differin, which is why I've discontinued use. Recommended for combination and oily skin types.
