I purchased the Extra Stength version of this toner and used it religiously every morning after cleansing with her Clear cleanser. I'll start off by saying that I have weird skin lol...oily, acne prone, extremely sensitive...this stuff broke me out like crazy. I kept chalking it up to a "purge" but you shouldn't purge like that for 2 months...I called and they gave me my money back. I just dont think BHA is for me unfortunately.
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Everyday Protection lotion SPF30

I have very sensitive, fair, combo skin so a good moisturizer is tough to find. This is great, i have been able to go out into the sun ALL day and no burn! Also, this is a non greasy moisturizer that goes on and hydrates well. I love that it has a bit of lactic acid as well :) You have to rub this in good as it is a bit white, but well worth the benefits.
This isn't the greatest bronzer for everyday use because it has a LOT of shimmer to it. i prefer it over the top of a less shimmery brozer, just a pop on the cheekbones. its a beautiful color just a bit much for all over face or even everyday use. Great for night time makeup!
This is my go to all over fact bronzer. Has little shimmer to it so its great for all over face. It has a beautiful color that isn't too overbearing. I like to wear it under blush. its my go to bronzer for everyday use.
This is a good concealer, it layers well provides great all day coverage for blemishes and under eye circles. Its a little bit white for me! I like going out with a concealer that matches my skin tone. So this is almost perfect, but not quite.
This shampoo is amazing. It lathers well, smells great and is minty/tingly! Your hair will be sooooOOOo clean you won't have to wash it for a week! No joke, this stuff is GOLD.
I love love love Kat Von D's eyeshadow pallets. The packaging is great, but so is the quality of the application. This pallet is great, i love the purples they go on beautifully and can be as faint as you want them to appear and also dramatic. I love using the black for eyeliner and the brown to fill in my brows.
Self Tanners -L'Oreal - Sublime Bronze Airbrush-Effect Dry Mist BODY

This definitely isn't the best airbrush tanner out there for the following reasons: Takes quite a while for the color to develop (and I prefer an instant color) also it doesnt get very dark unless you keep applying. However, it is good because i hate rubbing it in and no orange hands! Doesn't smell bad on skin and leaves color on for a few days :) So I use it the night before I need to look tan. I usually use about 3 coats, be careful to allow it to fully dry. It works, not the best like I said but not the worst.
Powder -Sephora - Mineral Double Compact Foundation SPF 10

Hallleluiagh! Halleluiagh! Finally, I found a noncosmedogenic, fragrance free, bismuth and talc free mineral powder with great coverage and SPF! What more could you ask for? It has amazing coverage, includes a sponge which I prefer to apply my makeup with anyways, since I have always been a studiofix MAC lover however it breaks me out like crazy! I am SO happy, like overjoyed you have no idea I will buy it again and again and again! def give it a try!
This wasn't as wonderful as I was expecting it to be, but I LOVE that there is no sheeny shine to it. It has the rare minerals treatment in the makeup and a decent amount of Spf which are all great qualities. The coverage isn't that great...and it is pretty drying. Maybe in the summer I can use this stuff, but for right now I'm sticking with something liquid based.
I think this is my HG foundation! I can hear the hallelujah chorus! I tried this because I loved my Sue Devitt whipped foundation, but it had no coverage and I was literally using concealer everywhere! I read a lot of good reviews about this product, but was worried it would break me out or be to heavy...not the case whatsoever! It didn't break me out at all, the coverage is amazing and you don't have to use much at all. I don't love the fragrance, but that's OK because it doesn't linger. I haven't found my perfect color match yet, I'm using Nude, but I think I could go a shade or two darker. It has great staying power, keeps my shine at bay and looks very natural all at the same time Ahhhhmazing! tryy it!
Crème -Sue Devitt - Triple C-weed Whipped Foundation

I still have yet to find my perfect face makeup, but this stuff comes pretty darn close to what my ideal foundation would be. It doesn't have alcohol, harsh chemicals, oil, its water based, I like that the ingredients are actually good for the skin. The coverage is sheet, but buildable and I love that the color matches my neck! Its very hydrating and calming. I would deffinitely try it!
