Cleansers -L'Oreal - Revitalift Radiant Smoothing Cream Cleanser
bayergal 1/12/2013 3:54:00 AM
The texture and smell of this product is just perfect! It's not too thick or thin when you lather it, and it smells nice and clean. I only use a pea size and it's more than enough for my face and neck. My skin feels so smooth afterwards it's hard to stop touching! I find this really helps with oil control & blackheads as well! It's not drying at all and I haven't broken out. It's been 4 days, and I am absolutely in love! My skin feels and looks brighter! I am extremely satisfied.
I've been looking for a light foundation for awhile, and I think I've finally found the perfect one! I have really oily skin & dry patches around my mouth. I find this foundation pretty drying so the dry patches are noticeable but I didn't have any issues with oil at all! It covers just enough with 1 layer and lasts all day. This is a really runny foundation so A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY! I am definitely going to get this again my only issue is the container, the foundation is so runny a pump would be better! I always have excess.

I can only think of one good thing to say about this product - it looks okay in photos. The shade matches my skin pretty well but it turns grey after about 30 minutes on my face which is very unattractive. I find I have to mix this with BB cream just so it will still look some-what okay for the whole day. The container leaks and clogs quickly, the smell is disgusting, and I find even with a thin layer it looks extremely piled on. I do not recommend.
Treatments -Oxy - Natural Action Acne Treatment Serum

The packaging looks flimsy, but the product is AMAZING!! I have the worst trouble with blackheads and nothing works. This is the first time I've tried an OXY product and I am in love. I applied this once (it says you can apply 3 times a day) and after about 7 hours I decided to wash my face and add re-apply some more serum, after washing the first layer off my blackheads were 50% smaller.---------------------------------- 1 month update: After about 1 month now, the blackheads are slow and slowly going away. I barely have any blackheads left! I have not had a bad reaction, and my face doesn't dry at all. The best part is that the serum dries immediately so I don't have to worry about rubbing it off accidentally. My face does get oily where I have applied this, I suggest you apply it at night. RECOMMEND this for anyone with severe blackheads!
Treatments (Eye) -Nivea - Q10 Refreshing Eye Roll-On

I have severely dry eyes and dark circles, I figured I would give this as try as my eyes have been getting puffy in the morning, after 2 days of using this and I am not liking it! I wake up with extremely greasy eyes, though I do find it helped my dry eyes. The roller gives you a lot of product, I have to roll a small amount onto my finger and it is still too much for both eyes. The smell is nice and the cream feels nice in the morning but overall I do not like this, too much product is wasted for the price and greasy eyes are not comfortable.
I've been testing out new face washes because so far, I really haven't found anything that I feel will last in the long run - this being one of them. So far it's been a week 1/2 and for a week my face has been dry. I stopped using this 3 days ago and my face is slowly but surely getting better. SO. If you have a good moisturiser this should be fine, it really worked well on my acne.
Love this! I use it to apply my blush and I've been using it for 6 months now with no problems. Perfect for when I was travelling it fit perfectly in my travel make-up bag. I love how cheap this is, especially since I cannot afford high quality brushes but this certainly feels HQ. Best part about this brand is that it's recycled & cheap!
Primer/ Corrector -Make Up For Ever - HD Microperfecting Primer in 5 Blue

It was my second time trying a primer and everyone was recommending this so I decided to go for it even though it is pretty expensive. And it is definitely not worth the price. I find it doesn't cover my pores and though I do find it keeps my foundation on longer it does not help with shine control and makes my skin look drier than it actually is. Will keep using it before I buy a new primer, but I don't think I will buy this brand's primer again.
I bought this for my travels because I wanted a moisturiser with an SPF. It works okay, moisturises a little I definitely liked the glow even though I covered it with make up. Found sometimes it didn't moisturise enough like the "Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturiser" which I usually use but was definitely great during the summer when I was out all day. Didn't burn once! Recommended for summer otherwise I wouldn't use it, not enough moisturising.

New review;; I do have to change my statement. After a month of using this I found it slowly stopped working. And now I'm stuck using my expensive C&C advantage spot treatment again. ----------------------------- Old review;; I usually use the 'Advantage Acne Spot Treatment' from Clean & Clear but decided to pick this up and in one night all my acne was gone! It doesn't dry out my skin like other product's I've used and I am definitely going to buy this again. Nothing has worked as great as this.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Makeup Removing Cleanser

This gets rid of all my makeup! It makes my skin so soft and I prefer this over my regular cleanser. I've been using this for a few months and I've not even used 1/3 of it! It lasts a long time and it's definitely worth the try!
Treatments -Clean & Clear - Invisible Blemish Treatment
bayergal 5/14/2011 9:33:00 AM
I use this all the time! I hardly break out but when I do this is my go to treatment! It does dry out the skin and burns a little but it gets rid of big pimples within 2 days and smaller ones within 6 hours! Seriously love this stuff, I am surprised it has such low reviews it's very good!
Moisturizers -Clean & Clear - Oil-Free Dual Action Moisturizer
bayergal 5/14/2011 9:27:00 AM
I have a really dry skin and have been trying moisturisers for years! This is the only moisturiser that doesn't make me break out! I don't find it does the job for my skin though and usually have to apply 2-3 layers before even thinking of applying make-up and continually have to add more in the day. Seeing as it's only $5 Canadian I would buy it again.
I dye my hair a lot. Like, atleast once every 3-5 months! Sometimes 2 colours at a time, and I decided to start a new canvas with a dark, nearly black colour and my hair turned almond blonde! This smells absolutely horrible, it smelled like rotten fish and soy sauce, the smell lasted for days and my hair was so dry and dead nothing helped! Definitely regret trying this and will never use this ever again.
Treatments -Clinique - Acne Solutions Spot Healing Gel

So I've only been using this for 3 days but so far so good! I've always used clean and clear spot treatment and needed something new and this is doing the job. I was skeptical the first day because it's so watery and dried quickly but the next morning the redness had greatly reduced and my smaller pimples had disappeared. It didn't burn at all and doesn't leave my skin flaky and dry like other treatments have.
