this is a really good makeup brush set, all ecotools brushes are the best. they are very soft on the skin, easy to clean, and are made of natural fibers. The only con about this brush set was the bag that came with it, its hard to keep the brushes in place and organized, but a separate makeup bag will help with that.
this is an ok product. don't expect too much with this product it can only take out those surface white heads. but for those stubborn black heads, this won't do. i guess after a facial, this will be good to help keep new whiteheads at bay.
worst lip balm I've ever tried. i bought this since i wanted a lip balm with SPF but this left me looking like i had no blood on my lips, the color was just pale while. it does not moisturize at all, my lips were dry like i wasn't wearing any lip balm. threw it away in the trash after one use. will not repurchase
This does not do a good job of removing waterproof mascara. I have to rub and keep rubbing till all of my mascara is off - so not good for the eyelids. Aside from that, after you shake the oil and water together, less than 10 seconds later, they separate.
Lotions/ Creams -Herbacin - Kamille + Silicone Glycerin hand cream

Love love love this hand cream. I have been using this for 3 years now and it has kept my hands soft. Before I found this, winter months was horrid for my hands because they were terribly dry that they would crack. I tried tons of hand cream but they were either not moisturizing enough or would burn and irritate my cracked hands really bad. This is not irritating at all, and I love the subtle smell. Thank God for this hand cream, it is a life saver for me.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Face Sunscreen SPF 60 with Helioplex

This is really light on the face, it absorbs well and doesn't leave your face greasy. I could still wear this under my moisturizer and my face still don't feel oily and heavy, considering that I have pretty oily face. Although, when I put on my moisturizer with this, my face burns a bit, just for 5 seconds then it goes away. No lingering irritation or rashes. I don't know if it will do the same with another moisturizer coz I haven't tried that yet. I will try another face sunscreen but I will most likely purchase this again
This easily dries out. I've only used it for a week, not even everyday, and it ran out on me... even if i tap on it. The pigmentation and tint is bad. And it smudges. The worst mascara...
Eye Makeup Remover -Avon - Moisture effective Eye makeup remover

This stung my eyes like crazy! I've never had an eye makeup remover sting my eyes that bad. I hate the creamy texture, it is so greasy and even when you wash it off your face twice you can still feel the greasiness. This is the worst eye makeup remover that I've tried so far.
Eye Makeup Remover -L'Oreal - Refreshing Eye Make Up Remover

This is almost like water. I put this on my eyes and all it does is smudge my makeup around my entire eyes, it does not remove any makeup. It is worse if you are wearing waterproof mascara. Definitely I will not buy this again
Lip Gloss -L'Oreal - Infallible Plumping 6 Hour Lipgloss

This makes my lips look plumper although it doesn't really last for 6hours. Love the choices of colors and they are shimmery with good texture. I also like the shape and angle of the wand which makes it a lot easier to apply. The only thing i don't like is how sticky it is and my hair tend to stick on my lips when I'm wearing this. Otherwise, I like it.
Mascara -Maybelline - Full 'n' Soft waterproof mascara (vitamin E)

This is an ok mascara, doesn't clump, adds volume and lengthens too. It also keeps a curl pretty good. The downfall: it smudges on my eyelids and give me racoon eyes at the end of the day. It flakes too.
This is not a mascara for me. I have short, thin, stubby asian lashes. When I use this it seems like I have NO lashes... they clump together like I have only 5 strands of lashes. I am still looking for that mascara that lengthens and volumizes
i've got dry, wrinkly lips and this keeps them soft and moisturized. Specially during the cold months, this prevents my lips from getting cracks, which can be really painful. This is definitely better than the chapstick brand
I have struggled with acne all throughout my teenage and adult life, and on top of that have sensitive skin. I have tried other face soaps but they either leave my skin very dry and itchy, or I could just feel my face burning while I'm lathering, so uncomfortable. With most acne cleansers, I will see my face clear for about a week or two, but after that my acne comes back worse than they ever were. But with Cetaphil, my skin don't dry and itch, and it's very gentle on the skin... probably too gentle that it feels as if it's not enough to clean all the gunk and makeup on your face. What I do is I lather it twice on my face... first to take off the dirt on the skin's surface, then next to clean deeper. After that my skin feels clean without the dryness. And my breakouts aren't as bad anymore. Just remember that this is only a skin cleanser, and not exactly meant to treat sever acne, like any other cleansers out there.
