So far, this is the most successful moisturizer that I have used on my skin. It works for me all year round. I've tried thicker creams in the winter, but those will make me feel greasy and dry at the same time (does that make sense?). This cream moisturizes while keeping me matte for most of the school day. It's never broken me out.This is also wonderful in the summer if used a little bit more sparingly. It doesn't do everything I want it to, but then again, it's the best I've come across, so I'll continue to use and repurchase.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)

I used to really like this cleanser, because it got rid of the ten-humongous-pimples-or-more-on-my-face stage during middle school, but it didn't fix everything. It cleaned my face without stripping of anything, and I used it in conjunction with the Cetaphil cream. It worked for me back when I had big problems on my face, now it's just a soso cleanser. Considering the price of this product, I don't plan on repurchasing, simply because it just doesn't work anymore.

If you have hair that tends to get oily on the second day (which I think is the majority of people), this stuff is probably not going to do it for you. Let me just start and say that everything about this shampoo appeals to your senses. The color is bright and fun, the bottle is very convenient to retrieve product from, it smells great, and the shampoo soaps up really well. I used this on my hair for the first time, and I was like "This seems pretty good!". When my hair dried (air-dried btw), it felt soft and a little limp, but the shampoo is for smoothing down hair, so I was still fine. Then I went to school for a whole day. By the end of the day, my hair was an oily mess. I don't know if it's my own hair's chemistry, but it was not pretty. I used it for a second time, and this time I realized that the shampoo didn't clean well enough for my liking. What really put me off though was the one of ingredients. I read through them and what did I find? DIMETHICONE. I have no aversion to typical haircare chemicals whatsoever, but I'm pretty sure silicones are for conditioners and sulfates are for shampoos. You don't put silicones in shampoo. Shampoo is supposed to clean out the silicones O_o I don't like this shampoo, I do not recommend this, and those are my thoughts.
I love love LOVE this shampoo. It's amazing for my hair. After I started using this (in conjunction with random conditioners that were lying around), my hair felt softer, stronger, and smoother. It didn't make my hair more oily than normal (I've already accepted that nothing will change the second-day oiliness of my hair) and I used up my entire jumbo-sized bottle without any complaints. It didn't strip my hair, but cleaned rather well. It didn't cause dandruff. After finishing this, I tried to go back to Herbal Essences; that did NOT work out... My mom started making me try organic shampoo - it caused dandruff O_o All in all, I LOVE THIS STUFF.
This was my first try at eyeliner and it's absolutely horrible. It smeared like crazy on me, wasn't creamy, and it tugged on my eyes. I put a small amount on my upper lashline and just touched it to my lower lashline, and one hour later, BOOM. Raccoon eyes. The product was at least a cm lower than where I actually put the eyeliner. I don't have oily lids, but this product just didn't stay. Even for an hour. I was very disappointed.
First off, my hair is already pretty thick and healthy. I've never had problems with dry, thin, or damaged hair because my hair has never been color treated and I don't use heat very often. Typically, I would just pick up a random drugstore shampoo and conditioner, but I was curious, so I bought this shampoo and it's conditioner. Let me just say that this shampoo improved my hair. I have never felt any difference in my hair when I used other shampoos, but the Diametress shampoo made my hair feel silkier and smoother. I can't really say anything about thickening since my hair is already quite thick (It's asian, so I have individually thick strands), but I am impressed, because I have used many shampoos and none of them have done any noticeable improvement.
