Not only can this be good for helping a swollen pimple, but I enjoy using this just to run over my freshly washed face. I run it over my whole face and even over my undereye area. After doing so, just pat your face somewhat dry and then put on moisturizer. Your face will feel so refreshed and more "alive" because the coolness will cause a fresh feeling and also increase blood flow. It could also be said that this technique could be "anti-aging" because of the increased blood flow. Try it! I promise you'll like it!
Pressed Powders -Cover Girl - Clean Oil Control Pressed Powder

My oily skin loves this. I don't know that I could survive through my day without using this powder. My mom has always used CoverGirl so I have been using it for the majority of my makeup needs since I first started using makeup. I use this any time I feel my face beginning to feel a little oily, just a little bit to freshen up.. Love it!
I am not sure why this is listed under "Lip treatments"... However, I do use it for something that many people may consider completely ridiculous. My dad and other people in my parents have somewhat swore by this as a fix-all remedy (old-fashioned)... BUT, I started using this many years ago as a toner on my face after cleansing at night... Higher alcohol percentage leads to a burning sensation at times, but I swear that this is the only thing that keeps my oily/acne-prone skin clear. Afterwards, always make sure to use a moisturizer to add back moisture that has been taken away by using this product.

I, too, was hoping for the actual color to show on my lips. I only notice a barely-there hint of pink at most. However, it feels very nice on my lips and the sweet scent is a pick-me-up. I said that I would not buy this again, but I would be willing to try other colors just to see if they were any less sheer.
Moisturizers -Olay - Complete Moisture Cream Sensitive SPF 15

My skin is VERY picky. I have been using this moisturizer for years now because it is the only thing I have found that works well for my skin. I would like to find a moisturizer with higher SPF but I just can't go wrong when it comes to Olay Sensitive with SPF 15. This is definitely a staple when it comes to my day-to-day beauty routine! I recommend everyone try it...
Although this scrub often gets a bad rep for being too harsh on skin, there is nothing else that I love more than this facial scrub. This is a staple in my regime. That being said, I have acne-prone and oily skin, large pores (I know, I am lucky.....) and I have found that using this in the morning and St. Ives Blemish Fighting cleanser (with gentler scrubbing beads) at night--it is the only routine that has ever truly worked for my skin. I always make sure to have enough water on my face and hands when using this scrub, and never press into my skin, the scrub does the work for you. I think that can sometimes be the problem when it comes to this scrub. I have used this for probably around 5 years and I doubt I will ever change!
Shampoo -L'Oreal - EverCreme Cleansing Conditioner

I read about his product and was looking to find something more moisturizing to help with my hair since it has been feeling a little drab and lifeless as of lately. I decided to give this a try. I love finding new beauty products and seeing whether they work for me. Although many other reviews have said this product was wonderful, I didn't feel the same. (However, I am happy it works for others!!--just not so much for me...) I remember seeing on the add that it had a "low but satisfying lather", I don't remember any lather at all... I felt as if I was literally taking a thick conditioner and trying to wash my hair with it and it didn't spread at all into my hair... I really wanted this product to work for me and maybe it will just take a little bit of a different technique to get the rest of the bottle to work for me. I won't repurchase... but with all this being said, I really loved the scent!
