I really didn't like this lip balm because the smell and taste were overwhelming and I always hated putting it on. I probably shouldn't have purchased it in a tube form either, because it made applying it a bit awkward. It definitely wasn't as long lasting as some other lip balms I've tried (Aveeno and Burt's Bees being my favorites), and left dry flakes on my lips.
Lotions/ Creams -The Body Shop - Body Butter - Cocoa Butter

I absolutely love this body butter. I can use it pretty much anywhere (including my face) and not worry about it irritating my skin (e.g. causing acne breakouts or worsening the eczema on my legs). It's very creamy and I don't even notice the scent.
Moisturizers -Laura Mercier - Oil-Free Moisturizer with SPF 15

This was extremely expensive but I really like it. It is very sheer and light on my skin and doesn't seem to irritate it at all (which is a major plus since I have very sensitive skin).
Loose Powders -Cover Girl - TruBlend Naturally Luminous Loose Powder

This powder was okay. I actually liked the sparkles, but this made me break out badly within a couple days of using it so I won't be using it again. I also ended up dropping it and spilling half the container after trying to take the lid off.
This mascara didn't work for me at all. Not only did it do almost nothing for my lashes (it weighed them down and didn't help define them), wearing even a little bit of this gave me severe migraines. That didn't happen with another mascara I use, so maybe it's just an ingredient in this product.
Moisturizers -Neutrogena - Combination Skin Moisture Oil Free

This moisturizer caused me to break out after the very first use, and I haven't used it on my face since then. It also made my skin look a bit oilier/shinier than before.
