Lotions/ Creams -Johnson & Johnson - Softlotion - Bedtime Lotion

I'm on my second bottle and I LOVE THIS LOTION! I am obsessed with the smell. I first smelled this on my 1 year old niece and I felt bad for trying her baby lotion. But guess what? BEST DECISION EVER. I love putting some around my neck before I sleep, it just feels so nice and comforting. Sometimes after showers I slather it all over my body especially my legs. But I find that it's not quite moisturizing enough, after all this is geared towards babies. So I switch between this and my bath and body works body butter. I just LOVE the smell SO MUCH!

I do like this eye remover, however it's a little too expensive. So I probably won't be repurchasing for that reason. I feel like I can find something just as good for cheaper. Also, I'm not a fan of the twist cap thing. While traveling it spilled out onto my clothes. Might just stick with wipes for the eyes.

I really wanted to like this product. Such cute packaging and for a good cause. It smells like grapefruit, which I like. However the cloth is a little too thin. And I feel like it wasn't wet/strong enough to remove everything on my face. One was definitely not enough, and it doesn't help that it was pretty pricey. The biggest negative for these wipes is that when I wipe my eyes, there's a slight burning sensation. Terrible!

I think this is my favorite face wipe. Love the packaging and that it tones and moisturizes. It's perfect. However, sometimes I have difficulty fully removing all my eye makeup (which is usually just pencil eyeliner and mascara). But my skin feels good and the cloth is super soft. I'm on my 2nd pack, will definitely stick with this one.
I had a love/hate relationship with Vanishing Cream. It's not a moisturizer I can see myself using everyday religiously. Plus it's way too expensive. There are days where I feel like it helped my skin (and it's not too thick, so it's ok under makeup) and other times, it doesn't seem to do anything at all.
A little bottle of this lasts a very long time. A little does go a long way when it comes to Grease Lightning. While it didn't stop all my acne or heal everything, it certainly doesn't make them worse. If I get one of those painful pimples or just a rather big one, I would put a bit of this on top overnight, and by morning it whitehead and I usually just pop it. And it just deflates. Some people might be against popping pimples, but I just can't stand having a white puss bump on my face. So in that aspect, the spot cleanser helps.
This smells great and for the most part does its job. But this is definitely not good enough for the harsh winter months. Sometimes it can get oily too.
I've had my little 3.3 oz bottle for almost a year now and I still have 1/4 bottle left. So it's quite lasting. I'm not really sure its done anything for my skin. My skin doesn't get worse or better with it really. I believe it's main purpose is suppose to keep oily pores at bay. My skin is sorta combination-dry so don't really have to worry about oiliness. Now that I've found a new toner (Thayer's Witch Hazel) I started using them both together. I'll pat on the witch hazel first then spritz the tea tree water, since I heard the two works well together to combat acne. We shall see!
Toners -Thayers - Rose Petal Alcohol Free Witch Hazel

So I've been reading a lot of reviews on this product and I figured since it's not ridiculously priced, I didn't have anything to lose. I've had it for maybe about a week, I use it twice a day: morning and night after cleanser. And my face immediately feels soooo soft afterwards. I love that it's alcohol free and doesn't burn my skin. The fake rose smell isn't that bad and it doesn't last long, so I'm not at all bothered by it. I know people squirt it into cotton balls/pads and wipe their faces with it... but I just squirt a quarter amount into my hands and I pat it all over my face. I'm probably going to find a squirt bottle and fill it with the toner to spritz all over.. that's a better idea. I want to try the cucumber version next. This product has definitely made my face softer and smoother. I love it!
