Moisturizers -Aveeno - Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer
Jazzy1354 11/6/2010 5:48:00 AM
I do like this product. The problem with Aveeno moisturizers specifically though is that they make promises on their products that don't deliver. This says it will even out your skin tone, but I haven't seen any of that and I have been using it for about 4 months every morning. However this doesn't break me out, clog my pores, and it is one of the only moisturizers that doesn't make me oily and that I can wear under makeup. Kind of pricey but worth it. You only need a little to cover your whole face, and the bottle last a while. This moisturizer isn't horrible, but there are definitely better ones out there. But this is a good drugstore find, and compared to all the other crap drugstore moisturizers this is without a doubt one of the best drugstore moisturizers. Not HG but good for now.
Like other reviewers have said, this mask it just okay. It is nothing special at all, most people are drawn to it because of the $2-$4 dollars price tag. But it really does nothing special for your skin. I bought a tube of this and I will use it till it is empty and maybe repurchase but I am really liking the a DDF sulfur mask because it controls my acne. Anyways if your new to skin care you should give this a try to see if you like face mask in general. Or if you have flawless skin and want a face mask just because, pick this up. This product isn't by any means horrible, it doesn't break me out, and it might clean out my pores somewhat, but it really is nothing and is just average.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

UGHHHHH.......I truly think that the only reason why people like this scrub is because it is low in price and you can get it everywhere. But if you were to add maybe like $5 or $10 dollars on the price tag there wouldn't be that many fans! This product brakes me out in white heads like crazy! and irritates my skin. This scrub has walnut/apricot shells in it to "exfoliate the skin". But I saw on the doctors that you shouldn't use scrubs with little walnut/apricot shells in them because it is cutting your skin! And it is really sad because most people think they are exfoliating there face with this but there really cutting it open! This product was just NO-GO for me. And i advise people to stay away from it! Don't fall for the price!
Love this product! For me this cleanser is very good for removing makeup, lightly cleansing your face in the mornings, clearing my acne, and brightening my skin. I use this cleanser both in the morning and night. At night I use this before the Mario badescu glycolic cleanser, and in the morning I use it on its own just to lightly cleanse the skin. This cleanser is amazing, it definitely has played a part in clearing up my acne and keeping it away. I actually started my sister on this cleanser who is also acne prone and this is one of the only cleanser she will use! My acne before was BAD, white heads, red pimples and cycstic acne, and this definitely has helped clear it. Now I get compliments on how clear my skin is! This cleanser could work on virtually anyone's skin, it is very light, doesn't suds up and just gently washes the skin. It may be pricey to some ($12.00 for 8 oz) but this cleanser last me about 5-6 months and that is with using it twice daily. Bottom line I would recommend this product to everyone but especially those who just want a light non-stripping cleanser!
Cleansers -Mario Badescu - Glycolic Foaming Cleanser

This cleanser completely changed my skin HG product for sure! Before using the Mario Badescu line my skin was extremely oily, and acne prone. I'm talking cystic acne and, new white head & red pimples every morning and oil slick before school lunch (And since i started school at 7 a.m lunch was at 10:30 a.m and i was so oily by then.) Almost immediately after I started using MB skin care products my skin cleared up immensely. My pimples went away and my oil production reduced greatly. Now I only get about 1 new white head every 2-3 weeks (if that) and I never ever get cystic acne or red under the skin pimples. I started to actually receive compliments on my skin from my own family! That never happened before. (Once at a family get together one of my family members looked at me, studied my face for literally 5 minutes and then said "Wow jazz your skin looks REALLY! good, this caught the attention of my other family members who joined in on the compliments!) I actually felt good about my skin for the first time. Though i do use other products in the MB line I attribute most of my acne clearing up to this glycolic foaming cleanser because when i stopped using it i could see a difference. I even started my older sister on MB products and she loves them! and it has cleared up her acne too. Both me and my sister have used every product for acne from the drugstore to the dermatologist's office and this is what cleared our skin. Bottom line I would recommend the glycolic cleanser to anyone with combination/oily acne-prone skin. The price may be high for some ($15.00 for 6 oz) But my first bottle lasted me 7 months! and i just bought my 2nd bottle and have hardly made a dent in it. To be honest the packaging is kind of cheap because the writing rubs off of the label after awhile, but i love the dispenser it is very convenient and easy to use. I use this cleanser only at night. First i wash my face with the Mario Badescu Enzyme cleansing gel and then with this glycolic cleanser and then tone afterward with the MB special cleansing lotion C and my pimples are nonexistent! Using all Mario Badescu products will maximize your results so definitely look into the whole line. All in all, I love this product!

AHHHHHH!!!!!!! Coconut oil......what can't i say about coconut oil....Better yet what can't i use it for. Seriously i use it for everything i rub it on my face at night, i use it on my hair ends, i cook with it, I mean i don't think there is anything coconut oil can't do. It is so soothing and i put it on my face at night and in the morning my face is less red, and refreshed! Seriously just get some coconut oil you will find some use for it! And i get mine on base so it is only 5 dollars but i know it can run kind of expensive. But it is worth it! XOXO JAZZY
