I've only used this for a day as well. Helped out my winter dryness.

I received a sample that worked amazing. Then I bought a box, and wasn't as impressed. Instead of feeling smooth and soft and clean like the sample, the box ones made me feel tight and itchy. Poop.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

Very cheap, creamier than other scrubs I've tried. My skin feels pretty dry after using it, but that may be because it's winter too. Worked awesome on my acne spots on my body.
I adore Yankee candles, I think they are the most delicious and often realistic. But I wish they made a vegan alternative made of soy instead.
It's black and has a musky, butch scent. The most erotic of the Yankee candles.
A bit drying, strong smell. I think it helped keep my breakouts at bay a bit. It's okay.
Smell is strong and it makes me cough. Weird color.
I think the soap is fine, the toner is a bit alcohol-y, the moisturizer... ugh. Daily use of the soap and occasional use of the toner seem to have improved my skin (acne prone and combination). We'll see if my face turns into a general plague area in 3 weeks like everyone else on here has said.

It's yellow, supposedly is out of date, and emulates sebum. It's helped my dry patches, but then gives me blackheads. Not using this again.

It's fun to see the oil taken from your face, but this product is frivolous and more of a silly luxury. Just use tissue paper instead.
Lip Gloss -Bonne Bell - Lip Smacker in Martian Mallow

This is kind of weird. It goes on very pale, the smell is kinda nice. It's okay.
Ugh, I hated this. Turned a weird bright raspberry color when I applied it. I must be allergic to CoverGirl lipsticks.
I had a reaction to this; turned my lips a weird, bright color after the lipstick was removed. I've had this problem with CoverGirl lipstick, too. Weird flavor. It's tiny and cute, but the mirror isn't big enough... half of the mirror reflects the little lipstick drawer rather than your face. The brush is tiny and gets saturated in one color easily, so you have to clean it off each time, lest you be wearing a color you don't want.
It looks more orange on my lips than pink, but I seem to have difficulty finding lipstick that doesn't change colors on my lips or look odd on me. I give it props for being able to be licked and lips pressed together without coming off, the smell is not bad either.
The colormatch is excellent. I have a rare skin tone and it matches closer than anything else I've tried yet. This is pretty sheer and comfortable for me. Leaves my nose shiny though.
