Moisturizers -DDF - Daily Protective Moisturizer SPF 15

This has a slight sunscreen smell. No more than any other moisturizer with spf that ive used before. It applied well and at first seemed to be just fine. As the day went on however, my skin became very oily. More oily than usual. This is when I realized this was not an oil-free moisturizer and said nothing about skin type. Oops.
Gorgeous color and very smooth application, but it does crease. It's a little better with nars primer, but will still leave a big, ugly crease within 4 hours. Without primer, I'm lucky if it lasts an hour without creasing.

This product is beige-colored and waxy. After application it has a pleasing silky feel to it. On my fair skin it leaves no color, but it completely smoothes out my face and makes my pores disappear. I don't have any excessive pores or scarring though. It also seems to fix redness a bit too. I have trouble finding foundation that doesn't oxidize, so lately I've been mixing a bit of porefessional with my oil-free moisturizer and applying with my hands. It seems to help cut down some oil on my combination skin. The bonus is that it works just as well for touch ups even when I am wearing foundation. It has no coverage on its own, but it gives me a finished effect.

I love this cleanser. First time I have ever said that about a cleanser, but I had previously only used drugstore brands. It took some getting used to as it doesn't lather much and it is super gentle. A little goes a long way. One large bottle lasted me 14 months with twice daily washing. It's creamy, not irritating to my eyes even though I get it directly in them every time. My skin looks the most healthy it has ever looked. The only minor drawback is that it sucks at taking off waterproof mascara.

Nice texture, weird smell. A tiny bit goes a long way. It burns the crap outta my eyes even though I stayed far away from them when applying. I had used this as a sample before and I bought this as a moisturizer to use at night as it leaves my skin feeling very moisturized, but kinda greasy. I don't remember the eye burning with the sample. It's almost maddening and it never goes away. Watery burning eyes when I went to sleep and again in the morning.
