By looking at the neon pink, clown-realness shade of doom in the pan, I thought this blush was going to be a horrible garish pink color that didn't flatter anyone. I found it to go on very light and natural looking, and I LOVE the way it gives me the slightest tinge of color on my very pale skin. Apply it very lightly and then build more as you need, you'll have a beautiful healthy glow!
This is a great hairspray for a lasting hold. I spray it around my roots, tease my straightened hair up into your typical "I never grew out of Myspace" hairstyle, and spray it all over again to hold it in place. I like that it doesn't make my hair weirdly crunchy and it doesn't smell like air-compressed lung cancer. My hair stays in place all day and only needs to be re-fluffed and sprayed again after a full day if I'm planning to go back out at night. It's kind of pricey, but all the other hairsprays I've tried have had some kind of major downfall that I can't overlook so until I find something that performs just as well for less money, this product is here to stay.
I'm really on the fence with how I feel about this product. It didn't lighten the acne marks on my face even a little like I had hoped it would, but it really did make my skin feel soft and really healthy. It isn't a bad product and might work better for some, but for the effect I noticed I can find cheaper products that do just as well.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Walgreens - Alpha Hydroxy Lotion 8%

This is a really effective AHA for the price. I use it once a day at night, which may be too much for people with really sensitive skin but is perfect for me. I don't break out much anymore, just a couple pimples around that time of the month but this helps any problems heal in just a few days. It's also considerably lightened the hyperpigmentation marks on my cheeks from mild/moderate acne. My skin has just become better textured and more glowing since using this product, and for the super cheap price it really can't be beat. It's a little glue-like and not very attractively scented, but I think I can handle it for $8 and a whole tub full of benefits.
I purchased this product on a whim in the color Light 42 because I'm paler than Casper's butt and have pinkish undertones, and I was shocked that a color would match so well. I ended up being really impressed with the quality of this foundation. It's very full coverage but can be lighter or heavier depending on how it is applied. A little goes a long way! I don't wear it every day but I do wear it on days when I'm having a breakout and to work in a nightclub at night. It makes my skin look naturally flawless and with a light dusting of translucent powder to set, it has incredible staying power and can last all night. I've been wearing it a few nights a week and occasionally in the day for several months and it hasn't caused me any kind of breakout or skin irritation, but it the consistency seems as though it may further aggravate people who already have dry skin. Another con for some people would be that most of the shades seem to be pink-based. This works for me but might make it difficult for others to find a good match. Also it's a little pricey, but for something that works so well I don't mind paying and will repurchase.
I have sensitive skin, so not every acne product is for me. However, NOTHING irritated my skin as much as pro activ did! Three days after beginning using it I had an extremely itchy red rash and more blemishes than ever before. I tried it for another two days to see if it was an adjustment period, but it only got continually worse so I stopped using it. It took a month for my skin to return to its normal color and to stop breaking out way more than usual. This is NOT a product for people with sensitive skin. "Would you buy this product again?" There should be a HELL NO option!
Toners -Clean & Clear - Deep Cleaning Astringent-Sensitive Skin (blue)

For me this was a skin miracle! I've been using it for a few months and my moderate acne has almost entirely disappeared. I only get a pimple or two on very rare occasions. I have oily skin and the alcohol in here might be harsh for people with normal or dry skin, but for me it was perfect. It got my skin clear and has been keeping it clear.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Morning Burst Facial Cleanser

This cleanser was irritating, the scrubbing beads were harsh, and it caused redness. It didn't feel good on the skin at all. I have oily skin and this actually dried me out! The only good factor at all is the scent. It smells delicious. But a wonderful fragrance isn't enough to make it a good product.

This is a huge amount of product for only $5! And it works so amazingly well! I don't wear much makeup for a regular day (some powder foundation, liquid eyeliner, mascara) but I do wear extremely heavy makeup for work as a gogo dancer. Full coverage foundation, dark lipstick, waterproof eye makeup and loads of glitter. Either way, this makeup remover can take it all off extremely quickly and easily without burning or irritating my skin. I love love love it and will use it for as long as it is available.
I'm willing to admit that I'm extremely pale as compared to most other people so it's difficult to find a makeup match, but this product only comes in orange and oranger. Needless to say the color that on the packaging appeared to match my skin turned out to not match at all. It didn't seem to cake on me like a lot of people say, but it got disgustingly greasy after just a few hours even with primer. The shiny look couldn't be controlled with blotting papers or powder. I used it a couple times to give it a chance but every experience was horrible. Never again!
I use these when I appear to be developing more blackheads than usual on my nose. They're my love-hate product. I have sensitive skin and these really irritate it, but they're very effective at pulling gunk out of the pores and helping blackheads clear up quickly. I'll continue to use them to control the problem when blackheads flare up, but I can't use them on a regular basis
An amazing cleanser for sensitive skin! Most other cleansers made my skin red and irritated while doing very little for my acne. I got my acne under control and switched to Cetaphil after I stopped breaking out. This cleanser is gentle and simple, which helped to calm my skin and eliminate most of the redness. The consistency is a little disconcerting and feels rather like washing with lotion, but I got over it. My skin feels soft and so healthy! I just have to love this plain cleanser.
It's watery, messy, ineffective and HORRIBLE. It rubs off quickly and leaves me with smudges of black under my eyes. I have naturally long lashes but this did nothing to help with volume. You have to put on multiple coats to get any result and then it flakes/clumps disgustingly. The best thing for society would be if there was a dumpster at the end of the Great Lash production line

These sheets are a godsend! The package easily fits in my purse and the sheets remove all traces of oil without smudging makeup. Love them!
Powder -Maybelline - Mineral Power Powder Foundation

This is the product I wear for a regular day. It gives good medium coverage, doesn't cake up or flake, and doesn't make me look like I'm wearing makeup. I don't get blemishes anymore but I have some spots of hyperpigmentation on my right cheek. It doesn't completely cover them but it greatly reduces them and I don't mind if a little bit shows if I'm not doing anything important. It does a pretty good job controlling oil (although blotting papers are a must if you're going to be out for many hours and have oily skin like I do) and lasts for awhile. The brush it comes with is pointless and stiff though, I use a softer powder brush
