Noxzema cream cleanser works great on my oily skin. I wet my face, rub some in for about a minute, rinse, then dry my face. Then I put more on my face like a mask overnight. I have noticed a significant difference in the health of my skin, and it leaves a great matte finish. The addition of Eucalyptus oil is a plus, because the scent naturally relieves stress. The packaging contains a lot of product, but don't leave it in the shower or it will get water in it and then it will be unusable. I will def repurchase for the cheap price!
My hair breaks off faster than it grows, and its been shoulder length ever since I can remember. I have taken biotin for about a year with no real results, so I was desperate! I started taking viviscal about 2 months ago, and I have about an inch of new growth, which for me, is a lot. I haven't noticed any change in my nails or eyelashes like some other people, but I don't mind. Also, the first months supply didn't give me any issues, but the second month seems like a different batch or something because it has an AWFUL fishy taste that will not go away all day long and it makes me hesitate to take it. I will probably repurchase for the suggested 6 months because it does seem to be working, and I have a lot of little baby hairs sprouting up.
It's like wearing lipstick.. without the commitment! I love this balm... I have it in Peppermint, Cherry, Peach, and the Pink. I had to stock up because everywhere I go is always sold out... they give just enough color without being too harsh, and they smell like candy. They make my lips feel hydrated, even after it wears off. The tubes are cute and colorful!
First of all, this is NOT waterproof. I originally bought this to wear to the pool and the beach, but any little bit of water and it is running down my face. BUT what this lacks in waterproofness, it makes up for in staying power. Now I use this for every day, and it really lasts. The applicator brush is easy to make either a thick or a thin line. The color is also perfect... it is dark without the harshness of black.
Bronzers -Physicians Formula - Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls

Worst packaging ever. When I opened this, all the little pearls fell out and I had to scoop them off the floor and out of the sink.. yuck. It was so hard to get any product on my brush, and when I really went in for it, I knocked the pearls out again. This was so frustrating and disappointing because PF products are expensive for a drugstore. I didn't notice any significant change in my complexion after using this.
I use this as a brow gel after I have penciled in my brows. I think this makes the pencil look much more natural and it blends everything together and holds my brows in place all day. It also defines the shape better and makes my brows really stand out.
Whats great about this product is that the brow side is a tinted wax, so once it is on it stays very well. The wax goes on so smoothly, and unlike other brow pencils I've tried, this never looks too clowny or fake. It is almost impossible to use too much of this since it looks so natural, but if I do use too much it removes easily with a Q tip. The self-sharpener is also a plus. I usually don't use the highlighter side, because it is also thick and really shows in the sunlight. I prefer that to be more subtle. I wish Revlon sold this without the highlighter, but I will definitely repurchase.
This was a waste of money...the moisturizer does not actually moisturize my skin, but instead gives it the look of moisturized skin by adding a ton of little sparkles to my face. This "glow" looks awful and just makes me look greasy and sweaty. It does not have any staying power, and any makeup that I put on top of it just slides off. I thought this would be an easy product to use on days that I didn't really need to wear a lot on my face, but the amount of time I spend setting this with powder and blotting my face is not worth it. However, I will say the packaging is awesome, and it travels very well.
Blush -E.L.F. - Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

Wow.. I am AMAZED that this little $3 compact has soo much beautiful pigment!! I wasn't expecting much from such a cheap product, but it is awesome. The packaging alone is better than some higher end brands.. it is sturdy, sleek, and includes a big mirror. The bronzer works well for every day and is easily buildable for a more dramatic finish. The blush is a flattering shade of pink, and both blend together nicely to really structure my face. I plan on stocking up on this, because it is an every day essential, even if I'm going light on the make up.

I have been using MoM every day for a few months and it is a miracle product. Since the packaging is embarrassing, I transferred it into a little bottle and just apply it with my fingers after washing my face. It only takes a thin layer, or else it will dry white and be flaky. I absolutely must use MoM, or my face will have melted off within a few hours. With this, my foundation stays on really well, and also my eye makeup. However, it dries almost sticky so foundation doesn't go on smoothly and it takes a lot of blending to get it to look okay. I've heard that MoM messes up the pH of the skin... if I use too much of it for too many days in a row, its almost like my skin gets used to it or something because then it doesn't work as well. Less is more with this, and its a great product for the price. I've also saved a ton of money on blotting sheets!
Toners -Neutrogena - Clear Pore Oil-Controlling Astringent
MissKassafrass 7/12/2012 10:50:00 PM
Definitely a must-use product after washing my face. This removes a lot of excess makeup and general grime that washing alone will miss. However, the product promises oil control benefits, which I have not seen. The smell takes some getting used to because it is very alcohol-y. Also, this can sting my face so I usually use a moisturizer right after and then the sting goes away. I will probably repurchase if I don't find another astringent that actually does control oil.

I have very oily skin, so I'm always on the lookout for an inexpensive product that will keep my makeup from sliding off of my face. For the price, this is a pretty good deal, and the squeeze tube is super easy to use. I used this over milk of magnesia and noticed a huge difference in the way my foundation seemed to glide over my face. However, I didn't notice any oil control benefits. My T zone was still oily, but on the rest of my face this seemed to help my makeup last. After I washed my face, I used my Neutrogena astringent and noticed a lotttt of extra makeup coming off my face... so if you use this I would caution that you will have to wash your face extra special good and then probably use an astringent because this will make everything really stick to your face... deeeeep in your pores!
