Bought this on a whim. I think it was $1 and it came with it's own sharpener. I would definitely buy this again and again. i have sensitive eyes and over time they have become worse. I used the Almay waterproof eye liner that lasted until I took it off but it would irritate my eyes for the hours i had it on. This one doesn't. This one goes on well and it stays on which I am very impressed with since I have fairly oily skin around my eyes which should make this smudge but it doesn't. It doesn't irritate me either. And it does brighten up my eyes a bit.
Cleansers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Foaming Cleanser

Dries out my sensitive skin and leaves it feeling tight and unpleasant which is surprising for a product that has no soap in it and comes from Aveeno. But I definitely won't buy it again.
Okay, I am not that big on mascara but I can say this is possibly the best mascara I have ever used. I have really sensitive eyes and even have a problem using Almay or Clinique. I have used Great Lash over the years and have recently gone back to the product. It's cheap, it works. Only this time I bought this version with the THIS brush. I have never had so many compliments on my eye makeup. This made my oh-so-subtle-puny lashes go from blah to BAZINGA! I have more lashes then I know what to do with, and it's all because of this little tiny brush that picks up the color and product and instantly thickens and separates at the same time. I do not need a separator or an eye lash curler. I will definitely purchase again.
Im giving this a 5 star rating on a $3.00 product. This is quite possibly the best mattifying powder I have ever used on my face. period. I have used Clinique, Sephora etc. Those do not perform the way this one does. I pat this on my face where my oiliness usually comes through my makeup. In one application this lasts from the time I put it on until the time I take it off which sometimes is 10 hours later. It just works. Im appreciative of the transparency because it just blends right in with my skin whether I have makeup on or not. The only con to this is that it comes in a small compact that has to be replaced more often. But Im still giving it 5 stars regardless.

I actually like these a lot. They really suds up and I like the fact that they are two sided. I use them 2-3 times a week and mostly at night for the removal of my makeup. I like that they leave my skin soft and slightly moisturized. Im not too hip on the fragrance, I think it's a bit much but I would definitely buy them again.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Ultra Gentle Soothing Cream
busyatdizzy 1/11/2012 1:20:00 AM
Bought this because it seemed good for my skin. Usually my skin is combination/oily but with the recent fluxes in temperature in So. Cal my skin has become quite dry. I faithfully use Clinique DD gel but found that it wasn't enough moisture. I saw this at the store for quite some time before trying it. I actually have to say that I love it on my skin. Its comfortable, calming and the moisture that my skin drinks in isn't too much and does not add more oiliness to my skin in the long run. It absorbs into my skin on contact and I love that it doesn't feel like it's just sitting on my skin. I even use it under my makeup for a barrier to the outside world. I just skim the top of the jar and pick up a little bit for my face, a little goes a long way. The only thing I don't like about this product is that it's a very heavy fragrance for a soothing cream. But it hasn't irritated my sensitive skin at all. It does come in a lotion, but I thought for my skin the cream would be better.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

LOVE THIS STUFF! Even though my skin is combo/oily I use this underneath my sun block during the day, or at night when I am not treating my skin. It keeps my skin moisturized just enough. I have always loved this stuff and will continue to purchase it.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Pure & Free Liquid Daily Sunblock, SPF 50

Love this product. I have oily skin and it seems to keep my skin very matte throughout the day either under makeup or alone. Make sure to blend it in all the way as it does tend to sit on top of the skin until you do. I love it most because its a product I don't have to reapply all day long. I put it on once and that's it.

My daughter recommended this for me. I have been using the "NIGHT" cream inow every other night for two weeks and I have seen results. For one, my pores are tighter. Two, my skin is less oily. Three, my redness is gone and I have more even toned skin. Four, my skin looks younger and more vibrant. I am more than pleased with the results I am getting wiith this product. And I will purchase it again.
Skincare - Face -Johnson & Johnson - Purpose Cleanser

My girls use this and got me going on it too. I was at my witts end wiith products that would really make my combo skin all the more oily at the end of the day. Not with this product and I think its because it's not soap. It seemed the more drying the soap, the more my skin dumped out the oil. This product doesn't dry out my skin nor make it feel strpped like most soaps I was using. I can honestly say this is the best cleanser I have ever used, and boy, have I used alot! I am a repeat purchaser of this product to begin with, but even more so now.
I love it. It really foams up nicely, has a fresh, clean scent and it moisturizes my skin even after it is rinsed off. I think it was 3.99 at Target and yes, I will purchase it again.
Lipstick -Revlon - Colorburst Lip Butter in Pink Truffle

This is the second color I purchased and I love it the color and the product itself. I have several tinted lip balms in my makeup bag, but this one is better than all of them put together and cheaper so that I can afford several of them. This color is a pinky brown that looks very natural. The color is very close to Dolce Vita by NARS. This is the silkiest lip product i have ever put on my lips. It is neither too glossy or too matte and seems to be very moisturizing. Kudos to Revlon for creating yet another fabulous lip product.

I bought this because I have always heard how great this is and when I first used it at the end of the summer when it was still warm, humid and horrible outside it left my skin feeling sticky. Now that it's Fall and the weather has turned cold and damp with an occastional day of dry and warm my skin has been very dry. I use this as soon as I get out of the shower and let it sink into my skin. In reality, the skin on my body has never felt or looked better.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes

I have been using these for a few months now and I just love em'. They remove everything off of my face at the end of the night. They don't sting my eyes which is a big plus. They do leave a bit of an oily residue, but I wash my face immediately following this step so it doesn't bother me.
Was recommended this bar from my oldest daughter. I love it more than anything that I have put on my face in the past two years. I have sensitive, combination fairly oily skin in my T-zone that drives me insane day and night. I have used the most expensive items that I can afford and nothing has done what this bar did right from the start. It lathered quite well, felt great on my skin, rinsed well and left my skin feeling good. Not dry and tight and uncomfortable by any means. during the day I use this with my Clinique toner 3, and the Dramatically Different moisturizing gel. Perfection. I can honestly say that the $1.97 that I paid for it was worth its weight in gold. BTW I picked up the unscented bar and it's great, the lack of smell doesn't bother me at all. BIG THUMBS UP!
