A GIFT FROM JESUS. Oh my Lord. This is my one and only mask, because it is the only mask I need. I have used it constantly for recent breakouts on my chest. The mask has been on 24/7 (not sure if this is good for you but it works) for the past week. I apply it in the morning and again at night. So far 65% of the acne is gone and the oilyness has come to a complete stop. It feels invigorating and I can feel it sucking up all the oil and unclogging my pores. It does contain an ingredient, somelike along the lines of titanium oxide greens that has been said to cause cancer. But honestly, no one has reported cancer as a consequence of this mask before so just ignore it. There have been VERY few reports of this making people break out badly so they must have very special skin, as do I since my hormones are crazy as I am just about to turn 15. The price is great, 2 for 8 bucks on amazon, no extra shipping charge. The quanitiy is superb. And it doesnt dry my skin, just rids me of oilyness and breakouts and clogged pores. Just as it had stated on the tube!
Dove bars are the best and the original is great! But not if you have sensitive skin like me. I tried this originally but it aggrivated my acne just a tad, I switched to sensitive and everything worked perfectly. A full year with half the acne I had before thanks to Dove sensitive bars (And Retin A/ Clindamycin)
I have not yet tried these products, but they seem EXTREMELY suspicious. I came across it looking for alcahol free moisturizers on Amazon. Now when I saw it, it was being sold for 80 percent off and more. The original prices were from 70-130 dollars and they were selling around 14! I could'nt believe it. So I googled the brand and hardly anything came up. Also they DONT tell us the ingredients. They arent even on the bootle. WHAT IS IN THIS STUFF? Ok minerals from the Dead sea they say. What is that supposed to mean... I mean honestly I need to know what I am putting on my face. This could be someones urine mixed with whatever for all I know. Seriously. Some websties that brought they up also alerted my virus detecting systems. This just doesnt seem legit. Apparently it sells in malls from what I hear. The infomercial I found even seems FAKE. On the website their creams are 100-250 dollars for the face! I found one for 9 bucks on amazon. I just dont know if this should be ordered or not, it just doesnt get any more suspicious. So this grade is based on how luxurious it seems and the savings really. Check out the brand on Amazon.
Moisturizers -La Mer - Creme de la mer moisturizer

This stuff is crap. You people who say "This is my HG...blah blah blah..." are seriously crazy. This stuff is around $140 for 1 oz! Yes, you heard that right! One of the first ingredients is Mineral Oil! It has nothing special in it! Its rating is a 3.5, 55% will buy again! 3.5 out of 5 is 70 out of 100. Your paying 140 dollars for less than a C product I suggest (strongly) switching to Nature's Gate- Oh what a Night cream Its phenominal for a tenth of the price.
Misc Beauty Tools -Clean & Clear - Oil Absorbing Sheets

Overpriced. Starbucks Napkins are the way to go. They're even at the top of MUA Best Picks! I bought a Tazo Tea for $1.55 and snuck 40 napkins into my pocket as I pretended to be adding sweetener. Lol. They ARE the holy grail product for Oil sheets. Dirt cheap, more efficient.
This is my HG face moisturizer. There was a dark, dry time in my life when my face was so dry, it cracked. I was a swimmer, 3 hours a day in the pool, constant chlorine. I was on an acne pill and topical medications, my face had'nt even been that dry when I was on proactiv! Now I stopped swimming and am no longer taking pills due to side effects. I was reccomended this moisturizer by my derm and was skeptical at first because I felt it weakened my topical creams and such. But my derm said it was fine so I just thought that my skin could'nt get much worse than it was. Well CeraVe has made my face hydrated and supple. My skin is so dewy and soft I just love it. However CeraVe makes my face EXTREMELY oily. Its bothersome to hear people make jokes about how shiny I always am. Its not that my face is oily its just an effect of the lotion. But thats the only downside, its a great lotion for dry, acne prone skin especially!
Lip Treatments -Alba Botanica - Coconut Cream Lip Balm

This is a truly excellent product. It is my HG lip balm, and I carry it with me everywhere. The taste and smell is fantastic! It leaves my lips feeling smooth and so soft. I have those lips that you see in the commercials for lip shimmers & lip sticks. My lips are so supple its insane. Its all organic, no harsh ingredients. I smile everytime I glance at the ingredients. Its so cheap considering whats in it as well. I'll share my little secret for lower prices. In stores, such as CVS regular price is $3. But on amazon its anywhere from $1.50 to 1.80 Its crazy cheap. The only downside is you have to reapply often, unless you do not lick your lips and smudge them together, then your fine. Hope this helps!
This product is fantastic, but is very expensive. I suggest going with the alba coconut cream lip balm or alba passion fruit nectar lip balm. ($1.50-$3) It has a better effect and is a forth of the cost. Buy it on amazon at half price.
