Lipstick -Maybelline - Color Whisper in Petal Rebel
KourtneyBrooke 5/21/2013 3:45:00 PM
I didn't like this product. It didn't layer well and wasn't enough color to me. I know that's the idea but still. I ended up not loving it. I definitely like it somewhat better with liner on with it tho. wouldn't repurchase and overall don't like the Whisper products or the Revlon butters. :/
This is the only product that helps my scalp. I have seb derm. The above reviewer would benefit from washing their hair more. an oily seb derm scalp should be washed everyday if possible. but I like this shampoo for its higher concentration of zinc than most shampoos. My dermatologist recommended it and I'm on my second bottle. Also it doesn't have a lot of bad ingredients in it which I am picky about.
I only got this because I can't find the mint eucalyptus one anywhere anymore. No don't know if its because this one is shampoo and conditioner in one or the ingredients just don't help as much but his one never really helped my scalp!!! I want to blame it on being a 2 in 1. The last thing an oily scalp needs on it is conditioner. :/
Toners -Unlisted Brand - Andalou naturals toning refresher
KourtneyBrooke 4/19/2013 12:14:00 PM
This was all kinds of bad. I liked the smell but that's it. It's not toning, it's not hydrating. and worst of all, when my cheeks got too dry one day, I put some of this I them with a cotton ball and it BURNED my cheeks and made them red and rough. so don't use if you have very dry or broken skin Or if you are very sensitive skinned I purchased this at whole foods.
Lipstick -Revlon - ColorBurst Lip Butter in Gumdrop

Lovely semi sheer lilac. Feels good on lips. lasts long time. Got it on clearance at target. Hope they aren't discontinuing it
I tried this got the first time today. It's not heavy enough to be called a true powder foundation and I'm very fair so it's a bit yellow for me. I will try to continue to use it but only as a touch up for my regular mineral makeup which is the body shop extra virgin minerals loose ones. And I also somedays wear mineral hygenics.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Grandpa's Thylox Sulfur Soap

The only cleanser I can use that not only doesn't break me out, it helps my skin. I can't use benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid so sulfur is my friend.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - 365 Everyday Value Daily Facial Cleanser

I tried the gentle version many months ago and the normal/oily skin one for the past few weeks cuz I hoped it would be better than the gentle but it wasn't. they both caused weird clear bumps on my cheeks that weren't acne. guess clogged oil bumps or allergy?? Not comedies. there were months in between using the gentle and the normal one where I used other products do I know these were the cause cuz I didn't have those bumps using other products. :/ shame. guess its a common ingredient in each that my skin hates.
I had been using this and it was okay, at least it was light enough for my fair skin but I finally threw it out because I think it clogged my pores. It has ethylhexyl palmitate which is highly pore clogging (google it ;) so I threw it out along with the green one, a bronzer, and a moisturizer that all contained ethylhexyl palmitate which I really knew for a while weren't good because of that ingredient. Otherwise, this concealer was just okay and didn't last all day and was too cakey for around my eyes. but also didn't last on blemishes :/
I used to use this but I finally threw it out this morning. It has ethylhexyl palmitate which is pore clogging and I finally realized that it was making my skin worse. I'm pretty sure. I also threw out a bronzer and a moisturizer that contained ethylhexyl palmitate. Otherwise this concealer wasn't that great anyway. didn't last all day etc..
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Pure & Free Liquid Daily Sunblock, SPF 50

I would NOT recommend wearing this as your everyday sunscreen. It makes you look chalky in pictures. YUCK. BUT as far as if you are going swimming or to the beach and want a good sunscreen for your face that is natural and won't break you out, this is the one for you!!!!! I will continue to use it when I go swimming etc. but for everyday I prefer peter thomas roth's brush on mineral sunscreen over my makeup.
Treatments (Eye) -Simple - revitalising eye roll-on
KourtneyBrooke 5/12/2012 11:27:00 AM
The rollerball doesn't roll ! The product is hard to get to come out when the ball doesn't roll!!! I tried to squeeze it and some comes out the sides. Ugh. The product doesn't irritate my eyes but doesn't do much either. it's just okay. will not repurchase or recommend. But will continue to use since I can't return it and it doesn't cause any harm just sucks :/ I like Simple's facewash gel though. fyi
I am liking this product so far. been using it a few weeks. have combination skin but I can't use regular lotions at all. they ALL clog my pores. so I researched and found out about gel moisturizers. This one is great for under my makeup. helps it go on easier. Doesn't feel sticky at all. Doesn't seem to break me out. The only thing bad about the packaging is the lid. it screws on kind of weird but that doesn't really bother me. EDIT-I recently developed perioral dermatitis so I won't be using this anymore incase it was part of the cause just fyi. I hope to find something else similar eventually but maybe without silicone and parabens :/
Cleansers -Simple - Kind to Skin Refreshing Wash Gel
KourtneyBrooke 4/5/2012 2:56:00 PM
I am really liking this face wash. I use it in the morning to cleanse and night to take off my makeup. I have sensitive combination skin and this doesn't irritate or break me out so far. I don't love the tube it comes in. I saw where others complained about that too. I wouldn't feel like I could throw it in an overnight back without it leaking etc.. so this one will stay at home. but otherwise, so far so good :) *EDIT-7/18/2012: I just decided today that I will not be using this anymore. I thought my skin was being really extra oily since it was summer or something BUT I realized now that this leaves a film on my skin. I figured it out while reading others' reviews of it!!!! I was wondering why my skin suddenly felt so gross all the time. and I developed perioral dermatitis during this time so yea...ick. The search continues :(
My HG brown pencil!!!! I have dark brows that are almost black and the dark brown pencil is perfect for them!!! just dark enough without being black. creamy pencil! I wasn't expecting that for something so cheap. my mom has lighter hair and I got her to get the taupe one and she loves it now too. great product. logged on here just to review it so others will get it cuz I don't want them to stop making it lol
