I'm just so-so with this. Let me start by saying I won this from an allure magazine giveaway. I've thought about buying a clarisonic for years but never could quite decide to spend the money to do it. I had heard about the olay brush and tried that. Yes, it spins instead of vibrates but it's a similar concept. Anyway, I was so excited to finally have a clarisonic. I've been using it for a week now and I'm sad to say I'm disappointed. Does it make clean my face? Yes, my face feels super clean, smooth and soft. But no different than the olay one made it feel. It really hasn't created any sort of change to my skin. I'm sad to say I don't think it's worth it. Am I glad I have it? Yes. Would I buy one in the future if something happened to this one? No, I'd probably just go buy the olay one again. Honestly my skin feels just as clean with the olay one. Yes the Clarisonic one beeps at you when it's time to move to a different spot, but I can count. It's not worth the couple hundred.
Toners -Peter Thomas Roth - Glycolic Acid Clarifying Tonic

I cannot even begin to say how much I love this toner. I was hesitant because of the price. It seemed expensive but it's completely worth it! It does burn/tingle a bit but not in a painful way. I am prone to hyper pigmentation from exfoliating and with this I have not problem. I actually bought it because of it's exfoliating but have found that it is so much more. I've been using it for a few months and my skin is so smooth, clear and glowing. It has evened out my skin tone so much that I don't need to wear as much foundation and really only need eye concealer. I'm hoping with another few months of continued use I can start wearing tinted moisturizer for everyday. This stuff is really that amazing! I've recommended it to all my friends and highly recommend this!!
I honestly cannot believe how amazing this foundation is! I was slightly skeptical at first but once I tried it it was definitely my go to. I've tried too many foundations from Sephora to count and all just so so. I'd been wearing covergirl but it made my skin too oily and start to breakout in the summer. I have to say this foundation makes my skin flawless. It keeps my skin matte and perfect, which with my oily skin is very hard to do. I scoop out some with a qtip and use the back of my hand as a sort of palette. I apply this with a flat topped foundation brush in a swirling motion. It gives me a flawless look and never feels cakey or heavy. I've worn this to football games in 100 degree weather and it still looks amazing. A little goes a long way with this. I highly recommend this!!!
Hair Removal -eos - Shave Cream Ultra Moisturizing Pomegranate Raspberry

Overal just so-so. Not amazing but did like that you can use it with dry skin. What pushed me over the edge is the packaging. Once you start to get toward the end up the bottle, it clogs up and doesn't work. It's really hard to get the last 1/3 out of the bottle. Won't buy again. It's frustrating

I feel like at this point I've tried almost every primer out there. I'm so-so on this primer. It's just ok. The packaging is what pushed me over the edge to never wanting to buy this again. It's white so it's impossible to see how much is left in it. There's no way to plan ahead. TERRIBLE!!!
Mascara -L'Oreal - Voluminous False Fiber Lashes~Waterproof
beckhamlvr 1/29/2012 11:52:00 PM
I love L'Oreal mascara but this is one just terrible. I find it makes my lashes thin and spidery looking. It also makes them look flakey. I was also shocked to see that the curl did not hold in my lashes after applying this. It was extremely disappointing to see how bad this mascara made my lashes look. I even tried applying it with the voluminous mascara too. But it just did not work. I'm sticking with the voluminous.
Cleansers -Physician's Choice - pHaze 1 Facial Wash for Oily or Problem Skin
beckhamlvr 1/26/2012 1:35:00 AM
AMAZING!!! I had a pca face peel done recently and was given a sample of this face wash. I've been using it for a month now and just ordered a new bottle. I can't believe how little you need to use. It lasts forever. It cleans your face really well and has never made me break out. My skin looks amazing (and no its not just from the peel). I've found my skin to be super soft and less oily. I cannot say enough good things about this!
So-so on this. I wanted to like it but I don't. It goes on really nice but half way through the day it starts melting down and I get these blobs of eyeliner in the outer corners of my eyes. I will say if I put liquid over it in the morning then it doesn't melt as much. But I'd rather just wear the liquid.
Treatments -Boots - Skin Clear Oil absorbing sheets
beckhamlvr 9/24/2011 2:41:00 AM
I have super oily skin so sometimes I have to use more than one sheet to blot. However, I will say these are some of the best oil absorbing sheets I've used. And I LOVE that they don't have mineral oil in them like the Clean and Clear ones!
I've been wearing this foundation for about 6 months now and I have to say I quite like it. I get tons of compliments on how great my skin looks. It looks very natural and lasts all day. I can even get away with not touching it up during the day or before going out at night. The coverage is nice but doesn't feel or look heavy. I don't like the packaging though and don't use the sponge. I've found that I get a better finish when I apply it with a foundation brush. The sponge tends to absorb a lot of foundation, which is not only wasteful but also can be cakey. I highly recommend applying it with a foundation brush.
I'm just ok with this. Don't love it. The pencil gets really hard to sharpen when you get toward the last 2/3 of it. The end of the pencil is attached and makes it really hard to get a pencil sharpener that far down. Also, when you hit that point, for some reason the gel stops working as well. It doesn't hold as well. Like I said, this product is just ok and will use it for now until I find one I love.
I've only used this for about a week now but so far I really like it. It makes my skin so soft. I think I may see some skin firming but maybe it's just me trying to convince myself it's working. I don't know. I'm going to keep using this and see how it goes. Even if it doesn't end up firming, I'll still use it because it makes my skin so soft.

I like it but I don't love it. I've now finished a bottle of it and wouldn't say I've noticed any firming. I'm just so-so on this

Love! It doesn't leave that sunscreen smell, doesn't leave me sticky or oily and is easy to reapply. Love it!

I've been looking for a new moisturizer and was given a sample of this. While yes it was moisturizing, it made me incredibly oily. I have oily skin and didn't think it was possible to get more oily but apparently it is. Definitely will not be buying this!
