Skincare - Face -Philosophy - Make-Up Optional 4-piece Kit

This kit is horrible. I actually have pretty good skin, hardly ever break out. I broke out so bad with this, with horrible cystic pimples. Read reviews indicating it would get better , not the case. It has been over a month and my skin is awful, not only am I wearing more make up than ever I have big discolorations from breaking out. Waste for sure
I got this for free too. My hands were so dry and this helped a lot. I have not put on my face and don't think I will. It says on the back it is for body use, but might work for some.
This is an okay cream blush. The color is okay, but it feels pretty greasy. I use it sometimes when I am in a rush, but would not repurchase. I much prefer the Sonia Kashuk cream blush at Target, it's not as oily and looks better and lasts longer.

I got this for free and actually like it. I have pretty oily skin and feel like it is just the right consistency. It absorbs right away and my skin doesn't feel heavy. It also smells nice and works well with the cleanser. I have not noticed a reduction in oil though, but I just use at night because there is no SPF and have been pleased with the results.

I liked this toner. It has a nice smell and gently removes what the cleanser leaves behind. I like all of the ingredients in it, particularly the alpha hydroxy acids. The packaging is not great, but you can easily take off the whole lid and put the toner directly onto the cotton swab.
I was given this and I like it. It seems to clean well and I like the smell. It is not very exfoliating and slightly drying. I have rather oily skin and my nose seems to be slightly dry since use (just in the crease). I would probably not search for it, but will continue to use the bottle. May be better for other skin types or non-daily use.
This mascara is okay. I kind of liked the brush, but don't love the mascara. It is also not so bad that I would not use the tube. I don't like the slight smudging and the lashes stick together after applied-not too bad though.

I really liked this cleanser. I found it on clearance at TJ Maxx for 5 dollars and was pleasantly surprised. I was attracted to it because of the mix of acids and found it to cleanse thoroughly without over drying. It also removes make up well. I would definitely repurchase and I am interested to try other products. Plus the packaging is super cute and would make a nice gift.

This is a nice cleanser. It removes make up gently and does not strip my skin. It also has a nice clean citrus smell and is at an affordable price. I appreciate the extra shot of antioxidants too.

I really do like this serum. A patch of my skin was really dry and within a couple days of using both serum and creams it evened out. I think it is a good quality product for the price and gives the skin a boost. I also like the slight citrus smell.

I would maybe by this again if I was desperate. It removes make up well, but burns my eyes. It did not seem to dry out my skin which is good and is also very cheap. Does the job, but nothing great.
Shampoo -Jason Natural Cosmetics - Tea Tree Shampoo

I really liked this shampoo and have been using Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree version or the generic one at Sally's. I found this one to be better than both of those and my hair felt better and my scalp has been lees flakey and itchy. I'm glad I bought it and it was only 6.99 at Walgreens. More like a 4.5 rating not perfect,but very good for those with scalp issues. Up-date- After continued use of this product I noticed it was no longer working as well for flakes. It seems to be pretty drying to my scalp also. If I wash my hair twice it work better for flakiness, but I would rather not do that.
Got samples of this and though it very moisturizing I did not notice anything remarkable as far as puffiness. I would not invest in the full size and would recommend trying a sample first. Wish I could give a 3.5.
Got a large sample of this and felt is was a very nice cream, but nothing exceptional. I know it is not targeted for my specific skin needs and could possibly benefit someone who has dryer skin or is older than I am.
I got a large sample of this and think it is a great moisturizer. It is almost luminous upon application and feels very luxurious. I am not sure I am willing to spend that much for the full size amount though, but would consider buying more of the large samples on eBay or getting more at Barney's or somewhere else nice. Though it feels really great and looks nice on I did not notice a transformation in my skin that would justify a need to buy it. Wish I could do a 4.5
