This product is pretty good for my oily skin. It actually leaves my skin slightly greasy and I have to follow up with a harsher cleanser to get all the oil and grime off. My boyfriend has normal skin and he loves this acne wash in times of breakouts.
I like this body scrub a lot. It's too drying to use every day but after a good workout or an especially humid day, it works like a charm. The only drawback is the packaging! The scrub is so thick, you have to squeeze the bottle until your eyeballs bulge! Needs a bottle with a pump dispenser!
Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer

My skin is too oily to handle this cream. It's very hydrating and leaves your sking feeling slightly greasy. I can only use it at night during the colder months. And the price! Yikes!
I did not like this soap at all. I thought the smell was terrible and the dark color of the soap left a residue in the soap dish that was revolting.
I was very disappointed with this lip balm. It's way too expensive and the consistency is thinner than expected. It had no staying power and I have to constantly re-apply. Back to my trusty Burt's Bees!
Lotions/ Creams -Burt's Bees - Milk & Honey Body Lotion

I loved the smell of this lotion but it wasn't moisturizing enough for me. My body tends to be dry and this lotion was too runny. I wouldn't buy this product again.
I use this as my every day mascara. I am Asian and I have long straight lashes. This mascara is good for a single coat, putting on additional coats gets too clumpy. Because of my eye shape, I usually have problems with smudging but not with this product! A bargain buy!
I don't really like long lasting lipsticks because they are so drying. I don't use this product often. The trick is to apply a thin layer. When applied too thick, it will flake. Also, be sure to apply in good lighting because if your line is a little off, you will look lopsided for the rest of the day.
It is inconvenient to carry around a moisturzing top coat as well as the original color but alas...so goes the long lasting lipstick!

Although this product gave a decent tan with few streaks, the awful smell and the fact that it stained all my clothes/furniture really turned me off.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clinique - Face Blotting Sheets

I like this product a lot but after reading the reviews about Clean and Clear, I will try those as well. The Clinique sheets have no powder which is fantastic! I hate any powdery residue. My face is so oily, I often have to use 2 sheets per use. Since they are expensive, I'm forced to buy off Ebay. I love the way the sheets are released from the package. Totally imaginative!
Styling Products -Clinique - Shine Serum [DISCONTINUED]

This product is so-so. I have straight, Asian hair and it leaves my hair feeling slightly greasy. It does boost my hair's natural shine. The good thing is that you only need a tiny amount per use so the bottle will last a long time.
Eye Makeup Remover -Clinique - Rinse-Off Eye Makeup Solvent

I did not like this product at all. It left my eyelids feeling oily and when it's swiped across the lids it has a "sudsy" feel to it. Plus, I had to rub too hard to remove the eyeliner. I much prefer Clinique's Take the Day Off.
I like this product a lot. I have very oily skin and it leaves my skin feeling clean and fresh, not greasy or dry. It is a little too harsh to use it every day. I alternate between a pore scrub and my Cetaphil. The only thing I dislike about this cleanser is the packaging. I have a bottle with a screw top and I prefer a flip top for convenience.
I have very oily skin and this product was too harsh. I felt like I was rubbing my fact with sandpaper. It left my face feeling greasy and raw. I'm glad this was a gift!
I hated this product. It didn't really do anything for my lips and I'm glad that the product was a GWP.
