I am a huge fan of BB cream because it treats, protects, moisturizes and does so much more. This little tube has improve how my skin looks and has improved the way my makeup looks. Healthy skin will show even when you put on makeup. If your skin is dehydrated and scaly it will certainly show in your makeup, regardless of how much you apply. BB Cream has helped add moisture to my skin and an even balanced tone. Garnier did it again, another great product!
I have no idea what happened to this 3 step system but it saved my skin. I tend to get really red skin at times and this calmed and soothed my acne and masked the redness. I wish that the face wash was still available for purchase, it was the best part of the system. The face wash was very mild and also helped fight acne. With a small amount of sulfur it hydrated and protected my skin. Very disappointed that i cannot find it anywhere. Both in stores and online..
This is a great cleanser that is comparable to other gentle cleansers such as Cetaphil, Cerave, and Basic. It is great to use if you are applying topical creams and gels because it is gentle on the skin and will not cause additional dryness. Acne.org's cleanser is expensive but well worth if you are looking for a cleanser that removes makeup, cleanses, and hydrates skin.
From what I understand, AHA+ is not an everyday treatment that should be used on your face. It is suggested to use maybe once or twice a week. I think this should be announced before purchasing. If you over use it you may not see results because your are over drying your skin and therefore causing additional dryness and acne. With that being said, this has worked great on my skin (using it only once a week, sometimes twice). It makes my skin slightly red when first using, so i make sure not to apply any other treatments with using AHA+
I like Acne.org's treatment because it is made with ingredients that really target acne and does not have added 'fluff" as i like to call it. Dan's regimen suggests that you apply ALOT of treatment onto your face, the more the better. I have to disagree because everyone's skin is different. With that being said, i enjoy using this treatment and i have seen dramatic results in my skin complexion. Acne has reduced and there is less redness. No complaints here.
I have read that Jojoba Oil is a great makeup remover and it truly is! I am so happy i bought Acne.org's Jojoba Oil because it has so many great beauty uses. I apply a few small drops on a cotton pad to remove mascara, eyeliner, and eye shadow. I then pour a small dot and evenly apply to face after washing. My face has a great glow afterwards and also feels moisturized.
Lotions/ Creams -Jergens - Shea Butter Skin Enriching Moisturiser

Shea butter is so healthy for your skin, i cannot stress it enough! This ingredient helps to heal stretch marks, hydrate dry skin, and to lock in moisture. Jergen's shea butter enriching moisturizer does exactly all 3 of these things. When choosing a moisturizer i always look for ingredients such as aloe and shea butter because it is so hydrating and healthy for skin.
Eye Shadow -Maybelline - inked in Pink Color Tattoo

Great made eyeshadow pot that has shimmer and shine. Easy to apply and easy to take off. Inked in Pink color tattoo is great to wear for spring time.
I love the color but such a poorly made product. I apply two coats and then apply a nail chip clear coat and by the next day my nail polish is already coming off. Essie offers a variety of great colors but the quality of the product is so poor. It's unfortunate.
Eyeliner -Revlon - REVLON COLORSTAY CRÈME GEL EYE LINER (all colors)
blondebum 5/5/2013 4:03:00 PM
I am not a huge fan of gel eye liner. This could be because i am very clumsy and mess up often when applying makeup but my eyeliner always looks like a hot mess when using this. If you mess up it is so hard to remove around your eye areas and i find myself having to start over several times just to get one eye done. Revlon's color stay eyeliner feels very cheap to me and the brush is poorly made.
Aloe vera gel is such a great beauty tip to reduce redness, shrink pore size, fight irritation, and combat the effects of the sun (sunburns and peeling) I bought this at trader joes for around $3 and it feels very cool and calming when applying. I apply a small quarter size amount evenly all over my face and it feels very tight at first. Do not let this scare you- it is getting deep down into your pores and reducing inflammation.
Eyeliner -Physicians Formula - Eye Definer Felt-Tip Eye Marker

I love using the felt-tup eye marker to extend my eye liner. It gives my eyes an extra 'oomph' factor by extending my eye liner line. The felt tip is very gentle on skin and easy to remove with makeup remover. It is gentle for contacts and leaves little room for errors when applying. My makeup always looks flawless and professional.
I decided to try Retin-A after every other skin care product and ingredient failed for me. My dermatologist wrote my a prescription after he saw how my acne was relentlessly coming back after every treatment in the book. After using this for 4 months i have noticed such a dramatic difference in the size of my pores, redness reduction, and amount of pimples.
I buy this in bulk for Cotco because i am so afraid they will discontinue it! I first bought this at Walgreens when they were having a 2 for 1 sale and have been a loyal customer ever since. I use this when i shave and my skin feels so silky and moisturized. The moisturizing feels lasts long after i finish shaving and sometimes i don't have to apply lotion after. Such a perfect lotion for people with extremely dry skin. This is your solution!!
Lotions/ Creams -Nivea - Body Smooth Sensation Daily Lotion for Dry Skin

Nivea body smooth lotion is great to use on my skin that is often irritated by strong fragrances. After shaving i apply generously all over my body and my skin feels so hydrated! It is not sticky and does not rub off on clothing or leave a residue.
