Hate this crap. I have short, thin lashes and this doesn't do much for them. Volumizes more than lengthens, but also clumps. I think the main problem is the brush - not soft or brush-like at all, doesn't grab onto my lashes. Will not buy again.
NOOO i hope this isn't being discontinued??! I really like this - it's very buildable and natural looking. I use it either as concealer or foundation. I use my fingers to apply. It's not very creamy but it's still spreadable. I LOVE that it doesn't cause my face to be oily, even after several hours! I have a lot of redness, freckles, and uneven texture, and this smooths over all that and provides great coverage compared to other foundations I've used. Tip - If you have dry skin you might want to apply a light moisturizer before using this. Will def buy again!!
Cleansers -Olay - Total Effects Age Defying Wet Cleansing Cloths

I didn't like these. I have combo, sensitive, acne-prone skin and they did nothing to make my skin look better. The cloths were way too rough on one side and left my skin feeling dry. Way too harsh! I also didn't feel like it took off all my makeup, and I don't think it has any anti-aging properties WHATSOEVER (should not be advertised as "age defying"). I was glad when these were used up.

Pros - feels light when wearing, sheer, smooth coverage, pump applicator is easy to use, good ingredients. I like the way it makes my skin look (at least for the first few hours). Cons - gets oily later in the day (more so than other foundations I've used), tends to melt off (not long-wearing), not a lot of coverage. Overall, I like this alot, but I will only be using it on days when I don't need a lot of coverage and dont' mind reapplying powder or concealer. I do think it's a good product and I would buy again. Probably best for those who dont' need a lot of coverage.
I have very fine, colored hair that gets oily at the roots and dry on the ends. I really like this shampoo - my hair is soft and full after use. Price is great too (you get a huge bottle for the same price as Pantene, etc)!! Will continue to buy, and will update if anything changes.
Cleansers -Unlisted Brand - Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

I have combination skin that has been leaning towards dry lately (not enough or wrong moisturizer?). I also have a lot of sun damage and problems with texture and clarity. I decided to try coconut oil after reading reviews on MA, and I'm glad I did! I bought the cold-pressed extra virgin kind in the skincare aisle (grocery store). It sinks into my skin and makes it look much more calm and smooth. It has natural fats/lipids and smells great! I love it! I will update if anything changes or it causes breakouts.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Cream

I love this stuff! I have freckles and roughness that I'm trying to smooth out and this is helping. It refines my pores and improves discoloration and texture. The only drawback (if it is one) is that it's not the strongest or most potent product out there, but it does provide very noticeable results in a short amount of time, especially considering the reasonable price!! I plan to keep using.
I'm on the fence about this; I feel like it's a good product but just wasn't a good match for me. Pros - True to it's name, natural-looking and light. Cons - not enough coverage for me. My face was oily shortly after applying (I don't have super oily skin). It was also difficult to spread when applying (too dry?). Didn't do much for the texture of my skin - made my pores look large and my face shiny compared to other liquid foundations I've used. This might be better for those who don't need a lot of coverage.
I hate Garnier shampoos and conditioners. This one weighed my hair down (i have fine hair), and left it feeling wierdly heavy and waxy. It didn't feel smoother, healthier, or more conditioned. Just didn't work for me. There are better products out there for your money!
