I love how this mask makes my skin feel really clean without drying out my skin (I always use a moisturizer after using this though and I apply the mask after cleansing my face) and it does help my complexion look brighter after I use it. it makes my acne look less red and irritated and in general just makes them look less noticeable. however, it does not shrink pores like it claims and I've noticed no long term dramatic differences with my skin. it's also a hassle to find because I've only found it at Walgreens which is not the drug store I usually go to because it is farther (I usually go to cvs or rite aid). but for the price and the amount of produce you get, you can't really go wrong with getting this and I highly recommend it!

I have had such terrible dark circles since I was young (probably has to do with genetics) and really wanted something to help tame them. I tried this product because a sephora rep recommended it to me and I loved it! it really minimized my dark circles greatly within a month! it is pricy but the product lasted a really long time for me
I love this toner because it effectively cleans my skin yet it makes my skin feel softer and doesn't dry out my skin at all like a lot of toners do. I think this toner could work really well for a lot of skin types and I highly recommend it! it does have a scent which I personally love but I can see why others who are not fans of noticeably scented products wouldn't like this
Eye Makeup Remover -Lancome - Bi-Facil Double Action Eye Make-up Remover

this is definitely my favorite eye makeup remover. it takes off even waterproof mascara very easily yet is still gentle and doesn't irritate my eyes. it also doesn't feel too oily yet it doesn't dry out the eyes at all. however the one downfall of this product would be the price but I would still repurchase this product despite the price
I picked this up randomly at target one day and have been in love with it ever since! it's good quality and it never sheds and its super soft! it's really easy to use and blends powder really well. and its super affordable so I highly recommend this brush!
I have the colors strawberry shortcake, berry smoothie, raspberry pie, peach parfait, cupcake, and cotton candy. the last two really don't look good with my skin tone so I don't ever wear them, so make sure you look up swatches online before purchasing and don't get overly excited like some people have. also i found that the last two were very sheer and apply way more sheer then the darker colors so not all of them have a good color payoff. another thing to note is that these lip butters aren't that long lasting which is good if you want to switch lip colors later on during the day but not good if you don't want to touch up too much. they are also kind of expensive for a drugstore product (7 to 8 dollars at most drugstores for not that much product). however I love the other colors I have, my favorite being berry smoothie. I love how these make my lips hydrated and a bit glossy but still gives them color! I highly recommend these
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Mega Plush

i like this mascara because it adds volume and separates without being too over-dramatic. its perfect for everyday wear to work or school where you don't want to overdo your lashes. i am not a big fan of the brush though it kind of makes it harder to apply the mascara and its definitely not the best mascara out there especially if you want a more dramatic look

this is my favorite powder! it keeps me from getting oily during the day without making me look "cakey"
Mascara -Maybelline - Volum' Express The Falsies Waterproof Mascara

i had heard many good things about this product so I was excited to try it, but sadly I was disappointed. it does a terrible job of separating my lashes and doesn't give enough volume. I also do not like the wet formula (fortunately it does dry a bit after a couple weeks) and find that it tends to clump. however, it does lengthen my lashes pretty well and it is waterproof but not extremely hard to get off. overall, I don't think this mascara is terrible but there are better mascaras out there (including ones from the drug store)
