Moisturizers -Garnier - Moisture Rescue Lightweight UV Lotion SPF 15
Sehne 9/6/2010 2:37:00 PM
I just bought this and haven't used it yet but looked up the sunscreens to see if they have UVA protection. They don't. It's got titanium dioxide but it's not listed in the active ingredients for some reason. I use Aveeno now but was looking for something less greasy. With Aveeno I look like an oil slick by 3 o'clock. If anyone can recommend a product similar to this that has UVA protection, I'd love to hear about it. No parabens would be good too!

Hair Color -Unlisted Brand - Tints of Nature - Conditioning Permanent Hair Color
Sehne 11/11/2008 5:31:00 PM
I have never tried Naturcolor and this is my first time using Tints of Nature. I usually use Feria (never really noticing the brassiness until I started reading the reviews here) or Nice n' Easy. I really liked Tints of Nature though. The formula is watery compared to Feria or Nice n' Easy but it is easy to distribute. I noticed right away that there was no chemical odor lurking in my bathroom. It does take a while to rinse and you are suppose to shampoo and condition with the enclosed samples rather than just condition. The shampoo is excellent, very good lather for a natural shampoo. The conditioner felt like it wasn't going to do anything going on but when I rinsed out a few minutes later my hair was soft. It smells masculine though. All and all, I'd say if you're trying to go green, this product is worth a shot. If you're just trying to get the job done on the cheap, Nice n' Easy is a better option. I'm in the green camp so I'll use it again!
Cleansers -Clearasil - Acne Fighting Cleansing Wipes

Don't bother. As with most wipes with salicylic acid, these are too strong and will dry your skin. They seem to have added moisturizers but they don't help and just leave you sticky.
This is my first eye cream so I don't know much about them. I was looking for Almay Kinetin Firming & Brightening Cream but Target didn't have it so I bought this instead. It is very thick and emolient as the other reviewer said. Moisturizes, but I don't see any improvement on dark circles. I use it on my lips & cuticles too.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF45
Sehne 2/21/2003 7:56:00 PM
With fair skin and an oily complexion, this is the product I'd been waiting for. Today I wore it alone, with no make up to try it out. After applying, it appears matte but you still have that telltale sunblock stickiness for a good 10-15 minutes while it soaks in. By mid day, you'll feel oily but you won't look it! Not looking like an oil slick while wearing SPF 45 is a huge deal! This is good stuff although I'm still waiting for the perfect, never oily feeling sunblock. Someday...
AMAZING! I bought this mask after reading the reviews here and was a bit skeptical. I didn't wash my fase first (no makeup, just oilies) as instructed because I was afraid it might burn, and put on a very thin layer. It was a bit tingly for a few seconds but after that no worries. It does smell like toothpaste but that dissipated after a few seconds too. When I took it off my pores were nearly invisible!! This stuff sucked out gunk I've been trying to get rid of for ever! This morning I wasn't nearly as oily as usual and I put on more as a spot treatment. It's going to take all my strength not to use this stuff every single day. It works so well, I'm just about ready to throw out my benzoyl peroxide! At $2.48, who needs more expensive treatments!
Gels/Soaps -Alpha Hydrox - Moisturizing Body Wash, Sea Mist

I'm not too crazy about the scent. They used to have a peach one but they discontinued that. It lathers really well but doesn't remove my deoderant fully. I give it four stars because it makes your skin SO SOFT!! Seriously, use this for a week, and you'll be baby soft. AHAs are great. I wish more body washes had them.
Skincare - Face -RoC - Retinol Actif Pur Anti-Wrinkle Treatment (night) [DISCONTINUED]

This product now has AHA and retinol, both excellent for acne. I use it before adding a benzoyl peroxide cream to help protect my skin from drying out too much because it is creamy but not greasy. You'll definitely stay clear skined, plus you'll fight off the wrinkles you don't have yet!
Masks -St. Ives - Peel-Off Hydroxy Masque [DISCONTINUED]

I have to tell you, there is something quite intoxcating about being able to peel this mask off and see all the flaky parts now on the mask, not on your face. I use this about once a week, on my oily acne prone skin and I feel so smooth and soft afterwards with no need for a moisturizer. It can make your eyes water and you'll want to avoid your eyebrows and hairline. Overall, a great method for getting the AHA benefits.
