At $7, it was cheaper than buying my regular deodorant and it works better. Certain dry is an antiperspirant so unlike a deodorant that just covers up the smell of sweat, it prevents sweating. You just apply this before bed and the next day you will be sweat free. This product is amazing and i was so surprised that it worked because when i was younger, I had minor anxiety problems and I perspired a lot. I constantly had small sweat marks and i didn't even perform any physical activity and i would become so self conscious that i would always keep my arms by my side which produced more sweat. All in all, i was a mess and deodorant just didn't cut it. After i bought certain dry it really helped with the sweating. During the winter, I'm ok with just the certain dry but during the summer i like to be extra safe with a layer of deodorant.
Three shades Benefit? Really? Benefit should definitely release more shades. The lightest shade was too light for my skintone so I just grabbed the medium and bought it without trying it out. At first I was disappointed by the color. it was not even medium. Its a salmony pink color and i was going to return it but I found this color worked really well at neutralizing my under eye circles. Thats basically what i use it for, color correcting. I use it for my undereye area, blending really well then i use a tiny bit of foundation on top. Packaging isn't the best but its cute. Im always a bit cautious of any product that requires dipping your fingers into (germs!) so i just use a clean makeup sponge to dab into the pot everyday. This product was a bit pricey considering the fact that I only use it for dark circles but the bright side to that is that I probably will never have to repurchase it cause I'll never run out.

For oil blotting sheets, these are expensive (I got them for about $7). Unlike other reviews, this didn't break me out but I have used better oil blotting sheets. I recommend the palladio rice paper oil blotting sheets, napkins (starbucks), or even those paper toilet seat covers.
LADIES, DO NOT TRY TO USE THIS TO REMOVE YOUR MAKEUP! With that said, for those of you who are trying to use this to remove makeup and hate it cause its not removing it is because thats not the purpose of this cleanser. My brother has severe eczema so his dermatologist gave him a couple of samples to try, one of which was the cleanser for his body. He didn't like it so I just started using it. I loved it because I have combination/acne prone skin and it removed the oil but didn't break me out. I also use the cetaphil moisturizer along with this cleanser in the morning. I only use this cleanser in the morning because like I said before, it doesn't remove makeup. On most days, I do wear makeup so at night, I use the purity cleanser to remove my make up and the cetaphil moisturizer. Overall I do like this product and i would recommend it for basically any skin type. Its not overly drying but it removes enough dirt and oil for me to feel clean. It doesn't break me out and it was cheap and easy to find, just walk into any drugstore.
Terrible mascara on its own. Its very clumpy so if you like spider lashes go ahead and purchase this mascara but personally I hate clumpy mascara. I did not like the brush. I found it hard to use and just oddly shaped. I felt like the narrow end of the brush was making my lashes clump more than the wider end. It was a relatively cheap mascara even compared to other drugstore brands. I believe I bought it for $5-6. The only reason why this mascara is getting a 2 rating instead of 1 is because it works fine when I'm wearing false lashes and I just need to blend my real lashes with the false lashes. Honestly thats the only use for this mascara.
This is by far my favorite mascara. For someone with very short lashes and hardly any lashes to begin with, this mascara does a mighty fine job at separating each and every lash and providing decent length. I find that a lot of mascaras tend to clump my lashes together and personally I hate the spider lash look because unlike those lucky enough to have more lashes, i end up with about four clumped up "lashes" and it is just not attractive and this mascara does not clump, well kinda. The only reason why this mascara is getting a four rating is because for some reason, whenever I open a new tube( I've already repurchased it twice), the first few applications (like three or four) tend to clump just a bit but after the initial few applications, this mascara works perfectly. I find that my lashes still hold its curl after applying this mascara which is a plus.
