Styling Products -Aussie - Dual Personality Mousse plus Leave-In Conditioner

I really wanted to like this. I have hair that is a little past shoulder length, naturally wavy, and somewhat thin. This was like almost putting leave in conditioner in my hair. Barely any definition to my waves and it made my hair fall flat. No volume at all. I like the concept of the conditioner to it but my hair is just too darn fine for this to work with. Left me with a frizzy mess. Oh well the smell isn't as bad as some of their other stuff which gets to me after a while so I added a lippy for that.
I bought this and hoped the curved brush would help curl my lashes and give me a little volume because it says it fills in the gaps. Which I have. I tried it and it took me 15 mins to keep going over my lashes trying to get the clumps out. It was clumpy and it gave me that spidery lash effect. Too much product is allowed on the brush and the spoon brush is gimicky yet useless as the bristles are almost non existant on it. I hate the ultra wet consistency of the formula as well. It almost reminds me of cheap Wet n Wild mascara I tried recently. This is just a waste of almost 8 bucks.
Ok, this is just horrible. If you have any pores or dryness, this will really bring out all of that and some you didn't even know you had. Isn't the purpose of makeup to kind of even out and cover those flaws and redness? I have rosacea and the beginings of crows feet and under the eyes I have tiny lines and huge pores. The shimmer in this just draws all the more attention to that and it covered hardly anything. For the price, I feel it's way way expensive for what it is.
Cleansers -Biore - SkinPreservation Nourishing Gel Cleanser

I can not use Biore. This as well as the pore minimizing formula burn my face so bad. Especially near the eye area, where at my age I'm starting to be worried about. I don't know what it is in their formulations that do this to me. I am not overly fragrance sensitive so I'm not sure. Anyway, I have to give this harsh stuff a low rating.
I'm starting to really not like Clinique anymore. This is totally horrible. Did they even test this on real people? It's gloppy, clumpy, and gave me major spidery lashes. I tried to fix it with a lash comb but, it did not work. It made my somewhat long dark lashes look miniscule. I'm returning this.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Redness Solutions Daily Relief Moisture Cream

This seemed way to irritating to to me to be any type of calming. It did nothing for my redness. I did not even notice a reduction. Though, I might have noticed something if I had used it for more then almost 2 weeks but, I couldn't stand not getting results from this and the irritation that occured. This redness line is not doing a thing for me. I took back the powder then I got this. This is going back as well.
Moisturizers -C.O. Bigelow - Extra Light Face Lotion [DISCONTINUED]

I got this at 2 for 10 dollars at Bath & Body Works. I wanted to like it but, it broke me out in a huge cystic pimple on my chin. Now I am stuck with a full bottle of this stuff. I'll probably put it on ebay. I already threw out the opened bottle. What a shame.
Tinted Moisturizer -Kiss My Face - Tinted Moisturizer [DISCONTINUED]

I wanted to like this. I tried 2 different formulations of this. One says just "new" on it and the other says "new easier to blend" or something like that which is the newer formulation. I think I like the older one better because that one seemed to not break me out like the newer one. I do not like how these look kinda cakey on me for a tinted moisturizer. They are not sheer. I would call these more of a foundation. I don't think I'll be buying this newer formulation again since it gave me a cystic pimple after just one use. It's a shame because it is a lot easier to smooth on but it breaks me out. :( The newer formula says "New, Smoother Formula". I just rechecked the packaging. This new formula seems to break me out. If I could find the older formulation I would repurchase.
Powders -Clinique - Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder
geekgrl 2/13/2009 6:25:00 AM
This did not work for me. The brush sheds like a cheap dollar store brush. As someone said before, the brush in the ad does not look like the cheap crappy brush they give it. It also scratches my skin which is not what I wanna do when my skin is inflamed and red to begin with. Anyway, now on to the powder. For the high price tag I was expecting a miracle or close to it. This is just yellow powder. It would take me a good half hour of applying this just to get my skin "pink". It is not as "natural" as they claim it to be as it's got all these extra chemicals in it that are really unnecessary. After layering this for a half hour and trying different brushes and a powder puff I gave up. I tried to like this. I tried 3 times to get it to work to no avail. It is a waste of the almost 40 bucks that I paid for it. It's just another powder to me. Yes, this contains bismuth ladies. Don't buy this crap. You can get better mineral makeup that would cover better then this without all the chemicals. I returned it today and got my money back.
This was so very greasy. It kinda just sits on my skin and I used it onlly one time and I started to break out from it. I didn't use this long enough to know if it would help redness.
This flakes like no tomorrow. I tried to like this but I just can't get past the flaking.
I didn't really like this. It was too oily for my combination skin. I set with powder but I still turn into an oil slick with this. If you have dry skin, I would think this would be for you. Also, I couldn't find a light enough shade. I used the lightest shade and it was way too dark and orange for my ppp skin. I will not be buying this again.
I love this scent. To me it's very unique. I like that it is a nice change from all the usual fruity scents. I would much rather the woodsy scents myself especially for the colder months. I spritzed this on for the first time to sample it and walked to another store where the woman behind the register said "what are you wearing"? It was actually Bath & Body Works. I said "oh do you like it". She said "yeah I do but I hate to praise a competitor". I was sold.
This was totally gross. I bought the lightest shade, which is called Ivory, because I'm PPP. Well, I applied this and it was extremely white. Not pale but white. I looked like a corpse. It was heavy and cakey and forget about trying to get the thing opened. It took 2 people to finally get it. The price is expensive for this junk. Don't bother to buy this.
I will review once I've tried this product for a while.
