Moisturizers -Yes To Carrots - Yes To Cucumbers Daily Calming Moisturizer

This is for the spf 30 cucumber cream. It almost had everything I wanted. The spf factor, the non testing of animals, however I can't get past how thick this stuff is. It's like trying to smear icing on your face. All the pulling and pushing my hands are doing to get this cream on has got to be bad for the wrinkles.

Are you kidding? the lather portion of this razor is so thick, you can't possibly get a close shave. It also wears unevenly, so you will have patches when you shave.

This stuff is aweful! takes of the first thick layer of eyeshadow but can't handle the job of eyeliner or mascara, or any makeup with staying power. Fail and return... Back to CVS oil free brand. much better.
This is one of the few soaps that does not aggravate my skin. It used to be my HG soap until I learned that Dove tests on animals, and the active ingridiants are derived from animal by products. Ingridiants: Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate, Stearic Acid, Sodium Tallowate, Sodium Palmitate, Lauric Acid, Sodium Isethionate, Water, Sodium Stearate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Cocoate, Sodium Palm Kernelate (Palm Kernel Oil), Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium EDTA, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Maltol, Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891) sodium tallowate. This soap compound is the natural result of combining sodium hydroxide (lye) with animal beef tissue. Tallow is considered by some to clog pores, cause blackheads, and increase eczema for those individuals with sensitive skin. (BEEF TISSUE! no wonder fragrance is added to most soaps). A better alternative to Dove is glycerine soap or vegatable based soap. You'll probably need to hit up your local health food store to find them,but it will be worhwhile. here is one I found online: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Trewax-Clearly-Natural-Unscented-Glycerine-Bar-Soap-Set-of-9/16662184
The good: Application is easy. This is a pretty gold color The bad: The polish didn't 'chip' for me but it did fade on the tips on day 2. Too much shine a little too distracting.
Liquid -L'Oreal - True Match Super-Blendable Makeup SPF 17

Yuck. This product goes on smooth enough, and has a variety of colors. I am super fair skin color and this brand actually matched me exactly. The results right after appliation looked great. After an hour this stuff started to separate on my face. It has no staying power, even with powder and primer. It will not last thru your work day, let alone make it to your lunch break. I have combo skin type and this left me feeling very very oil.
I love this, it takes off all the makeup and eyes (without rubbing). Rub onto dry skin, then use moist hot washcloth to take off. I use a toner to get off the 'film' that other users are referring to. It feels great on my combo skin type, and no acne flare ups yet. I did notice an acne cycst decrease in size. I like this better than Purpose, Noxema, clean and clear. The company limits animal testing and uses it only where required by law. I am considering the CVS generic alternative. Looks to be very similar and cheaper.
Yuck. Total waste of money. I saw an ad for this and it claimed to be the best selling mascara, and of course I wanted 'in' on the best. Disappointed. It's wet, smears, doesn't do anything to enhance the lash, clumps and runds down your face before the end of the day. Pick a masacara, any mascara....and you will have better results than with this one. That's the last time I buy mascara for a commercia ever.

LOVE. Acne prone (been on Accutane twice and still suffer from adult acne). This product does not break me out. This is light, non greasy, cheap, and does not test on animals. This is BETTER than the Olay moisturizer in every way. I only wish it was an spf 20. Perfect for combination/oily/sensitive skin. If you have dry skin it probably won't be moisturizing enough.
Conditioner -Wen by Chaz Dean - Cucumber Aloe Cleansing Conditioner

Wow this stuff is amazing. My hair used to be a pain to manage, not anymore. It is long, was over severly overprocessed (thanks to 3 idiot hair stylists) dry, and always tangled. Not anymore. My stylist can't believe how healthy my hair is. I don't need to use detangler anymore either. I think I'm saving money because of this. Saving time for sure because tangles come right out. One complaint - rinisng this stuff is a pain. If you rush the rinse job, you will be left feeling greasy. Take your time here.
Lip Gloss -Revlon - Super Lustrous Lip Gloss (general)
angel411 1/27/2012 4:12:00 PM
Love the gloss. Colors are true to what you see on the bottle. Staying power is OK for a gloss, wish this was a little cheaper.
I found this to be a mostly milky looking color on my pale skin. Bottle showed pink, but there wans't any when it was brushed on.
Liquid -Laura Mercier - Laura Mercier Oil Free Foundation
angel411 1/27/2012 1:46:00 PM
Expensive. I except a little something more from such a pricy bottle. Med-Full coverage, staying power is about 5 hours with light/moderate activety.
Nice soft neutral nail color. A step above your basic clear coat, as it is very sheer. Good staying power.
