I used to use this every day, but about four years ago the formula changed. When I replaced my old bottle with a brand new one it felt so different! It had this horrible grit in it. I thought it was defective so I bought another one. It was gritty too! Please bring back the old formula!!!!
Lip Treatments -Carmex - Click Stick Original SPF 15

This is one of my HG products. I put this on every single night just before bed. If I skip even one night my lips get chapped and dry. The salicylic acid chemically exfoliates, and the beeswax and lanolin moisturizes. Some people may find the medicinal smell off-putting, but now I love it because I associate it with comfort. The twist up stick is the container of choice for me. The squeeze tube makes it hard to control how much product you get, and the pot seems stiffer in consistency.
This is great for a deep clean without being rough on delicate facial skin.
Great concealer! Comes in a huge range of colors and even corrector colors. I use this concealer everyday to cover my dark circles or spots. I like the great coverage in a light cream form and the squeeze tube keeps germs out of the container.
Eye Makeup Remover -Merle Norman - Dual Action Eye Makeup Remover

Removes everything without any stinging or discomfort. Two thumbs up!
Tinted Moisturizer -Merle Norman - Luxiva Sheer Defense Tinted Moisturizer

I use this everyday as my moisturizer (I have oily skin so this is plenty of moisture for me). Smells clean, evens out skin-tone and doesn't turn orange. My two complaints are that L10 is slightly too dark for me, but since I am a really pale person this is nothing new for me. I just blend over my ears, neck and collarbone. Also, you get a lot less product in the new packaging for the same price.
Powder -Merle Norman - Luxiva Ultra Powder Foundation

Use this as my foundation a lot. Covers well and sets makeup well. It does go on much better with a sponge than a powder brush because of the creamy consistency. The new black packaging looks very modern in my opinion. The cream and gold doesn't do much for me.
Cleansers -Merle Norman - Foaming Cleanser Normal/Oily

This is a great cleanser, but I would recommend it to really oily skin. Leaves my semi-oily skin clean, but tight. I like it in the shower to really remove ALL my makeup. Smells clean and lathers well. This is a great transition product to wean bar soap lovers away from their Dial or Dove.
My absolute favorite eyeliner! If you only buy one product from Merle Norman, you have to try this eyeliner. It goes on as smooth as butter, is long-lasting, and after it sets, is smudge resistant! The creamy colors work great on the waterline, but I find the glittery ones a little bit abrasive on the waterline. Try it!
