Moisturizers -Philosophy - Hope in a Jar - for all skin types

I love this stuff! I have fairly clear skin but tend to break out with all different sorts of products.This is one of the few moisturizers that I've tried that doesn't break me out. Everything from the most recommended gentle moisturizers to very high end products leave me with clogged pores and a red rash looking breakout. Hope in a Jar doesn't break me out at all and leaves me with soft skin and a beautiful glow. My skin used to be oily on my cheeks and super dry around my nose and mouth but I find that this really helps to even out the consistency of my skin. Everyone is different and this product just happens to do miracles for me! The packaging could be improved but I don't find it awful as I put on my moisturizer right after I wash my hands and no one else puts thier fingers in the jar so not too big of a deal for me in terms of being unsanitary. The scent also does not bother me although I suppose a completely fragrance free scent would be ideal. Price is on the higher end but worth it to me for the simple fact that this moisturizers is one of the very few that does not break me out.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer

Urgh. I thought for sure this would be a great product for me, especially after all the wonderful reviews. But what works for some, doesn't work for others. I used this for almost two months and at first I thought it was great. However, I started to get huge cystic acne all over my cheeks. Usually I have one or two pimples right around my period, but they are never huge or really deep. These, on the other hand, were super deep and painful. Like a previous poster, I began to eliminate products.After I eliminated this from my night time routine, my face cleared up in a matter of days! I haven't had any new acne pop up since I stopped using this.

I found this to be a nice mask. It left my pores tight and my skin feeling pretty smooth. However, I've been using this product for over two months now and I have noticed very little difference in clearing of blemishes or treating clogged pores. A nice mask for frequent usage as it is non-irritating for me, but no amazing results to speak of. I prefer my Queen Helene Mint Julep masque for price and results.
Ah...I love Phallic! Gorgeous deep blue with a hint of shimmer that applies cleanly with two coats. Lasts about two days before I start getting tipwear.
Lip Gloss -Bare Escentuals - Buxom Lips Full Color Vanessa

Wow...this is SUPER pigmented. Totally opaque. I only have to apply a little to get a really nice deep burgundy rose color that has hints of gold. Super staying power too and the color eventually fades to a lovely dark cherry stained look on my lips which I love. Lips do look a bit fuller but I think the glossiness of the product is more a contribuiting facotr than anything else.

A lovely, lovely smoky dark gray-green looking color with tons of silver and green microglitter. Absolutley stunning on and perfect for winter. Did chip a little after 2 days though, but just a little tip wear really.

This makes my skin super, super smooth and I always feel so refreshed whenever I use it! Plus, it is very gentle so you can use it everyday (I use it once a day at night). You also only need a little so the bottle last a long time!
This is such an amazing blush! The color looks fantastic and warms up my skin perfectly while looking totally natural. The packaging is also super cute!

One of my favorite scents...I always get tons of compliments on it too! On me, this smells slightly foodie; like a lemon sugar cookie, but much more exotic with complex notes that add a hint of mystery. Love it!
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

Does exactly what it is supposed to do! Eyeshadow lasts all day and no creasing! Only problem is that it is very difficult to get the product out of the bottle.
This is a great toner! My skin always feels super smooth and fresh whenever I use it and any discoloration or blemishes fade more quickly. The only problem is that I have to be careful since it is a bit drying for me around my nose and eyes.
This is one my favorite reds! It is not too bright and can be worn at work or out for a date night. It is a classic wine and looks great with my skin which is very fair and cool toned. Plus, this is one SOPI color that is like armor...I can go about five days with just this....no topcoat. Love it!
I do like this product. I have very fair skin and it gives me a lovely glowy sheen when I apply it to my cheekbones without looking oily. I also like to apply this to the inner eye area as well as the brow bone for some added shimmer in those area to lighten up the dark areas. I do have some problems though, like the fact that the bottle seems to have been almost a fourth of the way empty when I purchased it...not sure if this was a mistake or what, but it was a little disappointing for the price. I also don't really like the applicaation with the nail polish brush and the consistency of the product...kinda thick and goopy. All in all, a very nice product that does give a nice subtle highlighting effect. As of right now, I would purchase again, but I am looking for something better.
I adore this dry shampoo! My hair gets oily super fast...I can't go 24 hours without washing my hair and it is not just a little oily, it looks plain greasy and dirty. This stuff is a miracle! I put a little on my fingertips and then massage it into my scalp, especially around my part line and on the top of my head until the powder can't be seen and the result is amazing! My oily looking hair looks 100x better. Not only this, but my hair is pretty fine with not alot of volume...just fine, limp hair. The dry shampoo boosts up my volume ten fold and gives me a really sexy tousled look. While for me not a shower replacement or anything, it definitely is a great pick me up!
This is a good product for undereye circles...it is light, creamy and covers fairly well. The problem that I have is for covering acne marks or scars. The redness just shines on right through when I use this! Good for undereye...not so good for blemishes.
