This is a review for using this product as a face cleanser. PROS: *Reasonably priced *Low sudsing *Minimal ingredients *Light scent *Huge bottle has a great pump lid CONS: *At first I believed this was gentle, but it burns broken skin :( *Does not remove Revlon Colorstay Really happy to discover this on Makeup Alley. Perhaps with more research, I can find a generic brand with the same ingredients. I use this after Pond's Cold Cream, so I'm not sure how well this would remove makeup (for those who don't use Colorstay). As a body wash, I do not use this because it doesn't "sud" well and does not make me feel clean. UPDATE: I believe this is the culprit for my face severely drying out. I have never had a problem with dry skin!
This review is for CVS brand Calamine lotion. PROS: *Lasts a long time *Unscented *Great acne spot treatment *Great mask *Minimal ingredients list CONS: *VERY thin consistency I am hoping to find this cheaper at a $1 store or Dollar General. I thought it was a little overpriced at CVS (and it was their brand).

PROS: *Cheap CONS: *I did not feel comfortable rubbing this creamy remover around my eyes. I love the Mary Kay eye makeup remover because I can use a cotton pad or ball to wipe off the mascara, so I switched back.

PROS: *Gentle (does not burn or sting) *Removes mascara CONS: *Price (but you can find it a little cheaper on auction websites)
PROS: *Removes traces of oil and makeup (after using Pond's Cold Cream) *Not irritating *Cheap (I think it is sold at $1 stores and Dollar General. It is overpriced in the drugstores.) I have used name brands and generic brands with success. The smell is very mild and you get used to it. I may try a green tea/chamomile tea/apple cider vinegar toner sometime, but this really works for me.
PROS: *Aluminum-free CONS: *I got very stinky with this! *Not an anti-perspirant (but none of the natural deodorants are, to my knowledge)
PROS: *Aluminum-free *Lavender scent *No irritation CONS: *Stopped working for me after a couple weeks (i.e., I started to stink!) *Not an anti-perspirant (but none of the natural deodorants are, to my knowledge)
PROS: *Creamy consistency *Removes Revlon Colorstay CONS: *Overpriced *Begins to liquefy and lose its creamy consistency after I have been using it for awhile *Smell (not terrible, would prefer unscented) *Ingredients are not my favorite, but they work I will continue to use because it works for me and can usually be purchased at a reasonable price with a drugstore sale.
PROS: *Reasonable price *Minimal ingredients CONS: *Weird curdled consistency *Does not remove Revlon Colorstay *Medicinal smell

PROS: *Feels light & breathable (compared to Revlon Colorstay) *Buildable coverage *Easy to wash off with cleanser then witch hazel CONS: *Concerned about putting salicylic acid around my eyes *Inadequate coverage (for me) *Too drying *Accentuates peelies/flakies from healing pimples This may work better for those with really oily skin but don't count on heavy coverage.
