LOVE LOVE LOVE this product. I've had very oily and blemish prone skin. Seriously, I get a zit and then without picking I get red scars. I've used Neutrogena natural cleanser, l'oreal 360, and plain water, but this is the BEST. Best. It makes my skin feel soft and moisturized, not stripped of natural oils. And although it doesn't lather, I can just feel the cleanliness that I get from the cleanser. I have not had a single breakout since using this-- and I've been using this for 1 month. Keeping this and never turning back!
Yes, it pulls some stuff out but you can do the same with some cleanser and a little patience. The worst part is that if you keep using these, the hair on your face just grows back SUPER thick. :/ Glad i stopped when I did.

My only gripe is that it doesn't take off all of the flakes, but in terms of a daily scrub, this works very well. Since I've started using it, I don't get those weird almost-pimples every day anymore. First week: my skin looked stunning after two scrubs. Glowing. Then I broke out on my forehead and on my cheek (ok, like three pimples). This may have been the stress. Second week: Continued routine. I did squeeze out my pimples, but Neosporin took care of scars. Redness did seem to die down. Third week: Lots of dryness, but no more pimples. Pigmentation is nuts, but my cheeks have never looked any better! 1 month: even skin, with barely any flakes. NO PIMPLES. This may be the first time EVER. Okay, it took a while, and I'm a hormonal teenager, but I think this has totally helped.

I've been using this for about two months, and it's a love/hate relationship. I love the way it makes my skin feel: soft beyond belief. Soooo smooth! This is the last step in my skin care routine-- I slap it on after my moisturizer to seal in the product. Cons? I have to make sure I don't use too much, otherwise it takes five years to lose that wet lotion feel. Also, it does nothing to ease my dry skin around my mouth-- I depend on other products to do that. Overall: great for the feel, does nothing for the skin. This is a great foundation primer, though!
Love the brush, but it actually made my lashes droop even more and can't really hold a curl. I had to run the comb-like brush through a couple times to get the clumps out, and cleaning the brush is just too difficult. Lengthened my lashes a bit but I have other mascaras that can do the same and keep a curl.

A very nice deep berry color for the holidays. I'll be using it more in the winter than the summer.
I got the mini version of this. When I wore it, my friends complimented my blush. It's really easy to use--I usually just smear some on my fingertips, smile, then pat upwards. It's a really nice subtle color and looks real. I think I'll get a different color, but I'd rather buy the small tube, since it seems to be lasting forever.
This mascara makes my lashes really fluttery and long without clumping, which is great because I have really short, Asian lashes. The only problem is that the curl dies throughout the day, but I've been fixing that with curling my eyelashes every two or three hours. I typically use this as my finishing coat of mascara, since it gives black-black volume.
Lips -Neutrogena - MoistureShine Lip Sheer in Sunny Berry 25

This is my go-to balm right now. Yes, the color's a bit much for every-day wear, but if you rub some off then it's perfect. This is actually my preferred lip balm, so I use this 24/7. The shape is adorable, but I love how moisturized it makes my lips. That's all.
My go-to mascara. I have boring asian lashes, so curling is a must. This mascara both lengthens and defines my lashes. I'm not going for major volume--I just want really long lashes---so if you want tons of lashes, then this may not be the product for you. This is the mascara I pick up just whenever.

I stayed with my cousin this summer in California (I live in WA), and didn't bring anything. She had this cleanser, so I decided to use it. It's so amazing. I typically used this with toilet paper (weird, but it worked), and it did the job well. Sometimes I'd have to use it twice to get all of my makeup off, but my skin miraculously cleared the eight weeks I spent in CA. This was the only thing I used to wash my face (plus water). Three times a day. The only complaint I have is that the cap is horrible. Do not try to take this on trips with you--the pump will go crazy and splash the cleanser everywhere.
I love this lip gloss so, so, so much! The packaging is adorable, and I love anything coral. The only problem is that it's really not the right color on my lips. I have darker lips, so the color is just a little weird on my lips. It's a great color though, just not right for me.

I love how creamy and moisturizing it is! The color is absolutely fabulous, it's like MLBB. The packaging is really luxurious. I'm going to look for more colors.

It's a nice lip gloss, I guess. It's pretty much clear, and it's really sticky and tacky. Nothing special. I'm not going to buy again.

I love this. I have yet to find any lip balm that works quite as well. It completely moisturizes my lips, and I mean completely. The sides of my mouth were cracked, but I put some of this on at night and in the morning my lips were all better again. The packaging looks like chapstick, but I don't care. I just lost this, so I'll run to get some more soon.
