I love this makeup remover. *Non-Oily is key. When I open it, I take all the pads out, keep them in the stack, and flip them over- because the ones on the bottom have been more saturated with the product than the top ones, from shelf time. It also helps because if you use them just as you open it, you may feel like you have to "scrub" harder to get your makeup off, aggravating your skin more.

I'm not someone with acne-prone skin, but the birth control I was on a month ago gave me a ton of acne... I bought this product and my face cleared within a few days! I also bought the moisturizer and spot treatment that went with it. It's important for me to find the most natural products for my body that I can find. I don't like the idea of putting chemicals on my skin. Burt's Bee's uses all natural ingredients, I think willow bark and tea tree oil are the top ones.
For my skin, it is the worst foundation. I was never acne-prone until I started wearing Fit Me. Application- it goes on smooth, blends well, but takes a while to dry. It doesn't last very long, as it made my skin oily after a few hours, and I had to keep 'touching up' with a mineral powder. Color- I had to blend two, for me 110 & 120. My foundation of choice would be Almay Truly Lasting Color - it's hypoallergenic and doesn't contain a million different chemicals like Maybelline's Fit Me does. Being an esthetician- I always say, any skin care product that says "shake well before use" is probably not something you want to put on your skin. (Shake well- as in shaking up all the chemicals in there, no thank you). My fault, I should've read the ingredients list first.

This has been my favorite foundation since high school. It doesn't clog my pores and it lasts all day!
