This is my NEW daily moisturizer after discovering it online and giving it a try. I would recommend it to anyone who has dry skin. It is fast absorbing. It keeps my skin soft and well moisturized. If you are new to the product I suggest you try a small amount to see if it is compatible to your skin. Where I'm from there is no walgreens so I try to stock up when I visit the US. It is about $15. Some say it maybe pricey but it is worth every penny to me. It works well for winter season.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

The bursting microbeads and vitamin C with ginseng attracted me to try the cleanser. The texture of the cleanser was awful. You can compare it to dishwashing soap. The scent is like an orange soap. Didn't bother me. It really dried out my skin. It was good to dry out my pimples that were forming, but then again I started getting more pimples after using this. I think I should stick to my regular gentle cleanser. Disappointed
I saw this product and thought I would give it a try since it also has vitamin E. I agree it is thicker than regular oil. The smell is not so great but you can get use to it. It would work best on dry skin/dry climates. I use it after a hot shower at night. During the morning it has absorbed and my skin feels well moisturized. I wouldn't mind purchasing it again.
It was the first time I have purchased an E.L.F product. I thought I would give it a try since it is so cheap. All I can say is you get what you pay for. It didn't stay well and the pigment is very light. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Neither would I purchase again.
Concealers -Neutrogena - Skin Clearing Oil-Free Concealer

I bought the green concealer. I thought it would help since it contains salicylic acid. It doesn't conceal well it makes blemishes even more noticeable. Also made me breakout more, which is a surprise to me cause I thought it would be skin friendly since neutragena is dermatologist recommended product. It took more than three turns for the concealer to disperse. This product may work for others but its just not compatible to me.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Cyclic Nano Silver Cleanser

My bf first discovered this product 3yrs ago in Hawaii at the Alamoana mall Shirokiya store. There is a small kiosk there. He brought it for me while he was there visiting. I've never heard of this type of cleaner. I was shocked at the price when he told me. I must admit it works well. It clears up my skin when I have breakouts. Also I notice some of my blemishes would be lightened. I would use it only when I breakout. Using this product as a daily routine is too pricey for me. The only cons is that it is expensive; it must be stored in the fridge or it will melt. At times I noticed that it would make my skin a bit dry so make sure to use a moisterizer after. Other than that it works wonders.
