Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

When i started using this my acne cleared up significantly, i have dry extremely sensitive skin and this helps bring my face back to normal. It wears great under makeup and is very calming when i apply to my face. The price is really quite good, and a little bit goes a long way. Somedays my skin still feels pretty dry but this gets the job done most the time. I would rec to my friends and family. During the winter months i might bump up to a more moisturizing cream at night but probably stick to this during the day
Awesome concealer, i use NW20 and it matches my light skin perfectly. Ive been having really bad flare ups of acne since going off birthcontrol and this helps me soooooo much 2 hide it. Having lumps all over my face is really imparassing, especially in the cosmetology industry where everyone expects you to have flawless skin and beautiful hair. I couldnt step outside my house with out my Studio Finish Concealer on...... thank u M.A.C!!!!

I am totally suprised by this mascara, i had always seen it in stores but never thought to try it out - i guess the packaging (plain blue) didnt grab my attention enough, but i MUAer on the makeup board recommended this 2 me when i was asked for a good mascara that could be easily washed off because my eyes are so sensitive. So i got it and i LOVE it. So far its the best mascara i think ive ever used, excellent seperation and no clumps ever. It really coats my lashes thick and full with just a couple of applications. I love this stuff. And best yet is that it washes off with just soap and water - no scrubbing or feeling like ur going to rip your eye lashes out!

For me its so far so good with this product! Its a no-frills, no hassell face wash - which is what I wanted, and it gets the job done! Absloutly takes off ALL traces of makeup, suds up really fast and rinses clean. Does not make my face dry at all, and dosent irritate my super sensitive skin. My only complaint is that the packaging is not travel friendly. I have been using this then following up with Neutrogenas Oil-Free Anti-Acne Moisturizer and Neutrogenas Oil-Free Acne Stress Control 3-in-1 Hydrating Acne Treatment as a spot treatment, all 3 of these together have cleared up my face amazingly.
Wow, this stuff is awesome. I have used just about every acne product on the market ( seariously i have probably spent thousands of dollars on products over the last 10 years that have never helped me ) and this stuff really cleared my face up almost instantly. Its very very relaxing, it has a slight cooling-tingly sensation on your face that instantly makes you feel good. Its got a powerful 2% S.A. but is very gentle with calming agents. I use it twice a day after cleansing with St.Ives Clear Pore Cleanser and then Neutrogena Oil-Free Anti-Acne Moisturizer. The packaging is perfect and will travel easily. I hope this is one product that I can take to the grave with me, please Neutrogena NEVER discontinue this stuff!!!!!!!!!!!

I have only been using this moisturizer for about a week, but so far I love it (giving it 4 lippies for now and will update later). Its very light, creamy and smells wonderful, its a delight to put on my face. I wash my face with St.Ives Clear Pore Cleanser, pat dry, apply Neutrogena Oil-Free Anti-Acne Moisturizer and then apply Neutrogena's Stress Control 3-1 Hydrating Acne treatment to breakout areas. Following these 3 steps has cleared up my acne immensly within a week, i couldnt be happier with the results. I literally have the worlds most sensitive skin and this dosent bother it. Ohh, and the little package it comes in is awesome!

this stuff REEKS!!!! It smells exactly the same as "fish-egg bait", you know the brightly colored fish eggs you can put on the end of your hook. omigosh it smells awful!!!!! was SOOO SUPER thick to put on my face, made me break out, yuck
I really like this lipstain, i got it for this summer. Using this completes my summer look perfectly ( i use tinted moisturizer, light colored cream eyeshadow, brown eyeliner and pink blush.) I have very warm undertones and the blood orange looks so natural and gives my lips the perfect flushed look. My friend said that my lips looked like I had just madeout, haha! Its a very pretty matte color. The one thing I dislike is that it kinda stings my lips at first when I put it on and makes them feel really dried out, so ive been using chapstick over it.
I had high hopes for this foundation, and after saving up the money I finally purchased it, very expensive at $40 for a very small tube. The color match was pretty good and it went on easily but made me look horribly oily and after an hour or two it smudges off your face if it touches anything. Looked very un-even and made my pores look bigger and settled into fine lines. Not a good foundation for people with oily skin, during the winter it may be ok..... But at this price I will not be trying it again in the winter and hoping that it works.

I never thought I would try a creme eyeshadow, i guess i figured that it would crease like nothing else. But last summer I found this stuff in Vanilla Ice and thought the creamy, off-white color would look fab with my summer tan and blonde hair. I was right, it sets off my blue eyes and makes my face look really tan. Its not to much, it has a little bit of sparkle but its really pretty. You can play it up for nights out or just keep it really sheer for a day of fun. Its super easy to put on, very "whipped" and creamy. To my suprise it lasts a super long time without creasing, and if it does crease -- just smudge it back into place! Brilliant!!!!! I have since added several more of the colors to my collection, I would love to get them all

HORRIBLE HORRIBLE product. Ive been using it for about 3 weeks holding onto hope that it would help my baggy undereyes and small lines, and i have absloutly absloutly nothing good to say, if anything my eyes look worse! Very expensive for a product that is only lotion with gold glitter in it, pathetic! My eyes have never looked worse, into the garbage it goes
Treatments -Clinique - Pore Minimizer Refining Lotion

I got this in as a sample after purchasing some makeup at Clinique. I tried it out the next day and really loved it! I have very large pores on my cheeks and chin from when I was younger when I was very oily. Now that I am in my twenties my skin has dried out some (im still slightly oily - mostly in summer), this refining lotion made my skin stay matte all day and made my makeup look flawless. Im not sure if it exactly made my pores look smaller (not yet at least, just started using it) but I will still use it everyday as a primer/mattifyer before applying makeup. FYI I have extremely pale, super sensitive, very acne prone skin AND this stuff did not bother me at all. Awesome find, im so glad it ended up in my bag as a sample or else i would of never tried it.
Wonderful bronzer, I have the soft shimmer one. Very natural looking. Huge compact, its going to last a long time!
The only product in the whole word I have ever used to give the *perfect* "just back from the beach-sexy look". It holds up all day, smells good. Im a cosmetologist and ive tried hundreds of products and never found a spray as good as this. Look in my pictures at my "wavy curls" photograph, all i used on my hair was this stuff!
Wow, this stuff smells wonderful!!!! I got a sample in the mail from Macy's a couple days ago and rubbed that little thing all over me. The scent is pure, crisp, floral & energetic ..... without being over-powering. Its the perfect light summer fragrance. I loved it so much that I'm going to purchase it this weekend, I cant wait! Seariously, after I put this fragrance on it put me in the best, uplifting mood, i highly recommend it!
