Cleansers -Clarins - Gentle Foaming Cleanser with Plant Extracts [DISCONTINUED]

This product and other clarins products are great. I had ACNE, and tried every acne product. I started using the face wash, toner, moisturizer, and make up. My skin has cleared up dramatically. It only took about a week before i started noticing a difference. If you have acne ( not talking bout a pimple here and there) TRY IT. A little expensive but well worth it.
The soap was way too drying. The toner did not slough off dead skin like it should, and it left my face dry. I hate the lotion. It's way too oily. I guess it's trying to compensate for the drying effects of the soap, but it's not working. My face broke out because of this system. A big thumbs down on this one.

Even though it says extra strength, it really isn't harsh on my skin. It still takes a few days for a blemish to go away, but this product is so non drying and gentle. I wish it were a bit stronger, but it's the best I've found so far that won't irritate my skin. I love how all her products have anti-redness ingredients so your face doesn't look awful after cleansing.

This toner is amazing. I can see all the gunk that it takes off of my face that my cleanser leaves behind. This sloughs off all the dead skin on my face and makes my skin look amazing. I love it!

I love, love, love this! This makes my skin sooo incredibly clear and smooth. It has really done wonders for my face. I use the liquid form. I noticed the lotion form didn't work as well for me.
I know this works for others, but it didn't do anything for me. It would take 2 weeks to see any kind of result in my skin. I'm very disappointed in this product. :(
I really like this fragrance, but I never stick to one. After this bottle is up, I'll probably try something else. This scent is very fresh and clean. Kind of sporty, and not very feminine. It's a nice scent.
This has no coverage at all. I wanted a light dusting of powder over my face, but this doesn't even do that. I have the whole bottle left because I haven't touched it after about 5 uses. It doesn't blend in your skin, it just kind of cakes on and looks unnatural.
Moisturizers -Christian Dior - iOd Matte Aqua Fluid

Mixed feelings on this. At first, I loved it, but after a while, the results seemed to not really last. I love the cooling effect of it when it hits your face, but as far as shine control goes, it's not that great. It's too messy to apply, too. All the powder falls out everywhere but where I want it to. For 23 bucks, I would have liked a bigger bottle.
I love this mascara. It goes on with no clumps! Makes my lashes thicker, but natural looking. Not as stiff as others I've tried. It's not a miracle mascara, but the no clumping and smooth application won me over.
Lipstick -Clinique - Long Last Soft Shine Lipstick

I got this in Glow Bronze and it's such a great shade. My skin is slightly tanned, and it complements it wonderfully. It's a hint of bronze and glow, just like the name says, lol. A very natural shimmery lipstick for those with a tan. The lasting power is pretty good, but not great. Just the usual disappearance after eating.
