So many good reviews...but this mascara ends up flaking in a few hours. When i opened this Tube, the mascara seemed really dried out. Maybe I got a bad tube, but I will not buy this again.
Cleansers -Olay - Deep Cleansing Daily Facials Cleansing Cloths

I have the combo skin, when i first used the whole cleansing cloth....it dried out my face too much...then i cut the cloth in half...it still dried my face out too much...now i cut it in quarters and it is phenomenal...tons and tons of foam. I had these little clogged pores on my forehead that i could not sqeeze out, after one week of using these once a day my clogged pores have vanished. I am thrilled. I was about to make a facial appt and lay down $70 dollars....whoo hoo....now i can spend it else where. These clothes get off all of my makeup- even waterproof mascara- and it does not sting your eyes. Also, there is still a ton of foam left after cleaning my face that I usually wipe out my sink. So now I have the cleanest skin AND sink on the block. Try these out...

This went on light, did not make my skin look dry. I didn't like the brush...it is a bit rough in texture. I use concealer under my eyes and use this to dust very lightly to set the concealer. It does not make my skin under my eyes appear crepe like or dry....so I am please with that
Foundations -L'Oreal - Visible Lift Line Minimizing Makeup

Just started using this. As other reviewrs stated is not a sheer foundation, but it is also not too thick. I used this to even out my color after spending one week in Florida wearing sunglasses. I had to blend my eye area with the rest of my face. This product went on well. A little goes a long way. The first time I used it, I used way too much. Also, if applying to dry areas, make sure skin is hydrated.
my lashes tend to clump with this brush. this also tends to flake after 4 -5 hours.
Hi, I have been using this product for over 5 years........ it is fantastic. I have very dry skin, I moisturize, let it soak in, use the dual cover up of any blemishes and then the pressed powder. the compact lasts about 6 months for me......and i use it every day. this product is way better than BE. better coverage and much less messy

I used to be a giant Keihls fan, not so much anymore. However, this is the one product that I still use and cannot let go. I have very dryskin and dark circles under my eyes. This product does a great job moisturizing. I put it on before I use concealor. Use a fair amount, i dab it on medium thick and within minutes it is mostly absorbed. I helps the concealor look much more smooth. Before I go to bed, i put it on thick. My skin just sucks this stuff up. My eyes are super sensitive and this product will not migrate either. As for helping in diminishing fine lines...i think this product is a moisturizer. If you have young looking skin and want to keep it that way, this product is for you. If you have againg skin and want some kind of repair serun, this product will not do that. It does not help dark cirlces, but does not claim to do so otherwise.
if you like to be organized, hate digging around in your drawers or your makeup bag for that one eyeshadow, mascara or what have you... this is the system for you. I have used this system for three years and I absolutely swera by it. It looks like a day timer/ franklin planner and has magnetized planner pages. I am a big fan of Trish McEvoy but you can also put just about any brand's product in this planner as long as it comes in a metal pan. All you have to do is use your hairdryer to heat up the pan. With a thin knife, pry the pan out of the packaging. This does take a little finess. YOu have to wiggle the pan with the knife as you heat it or you will end up craking the makeup in the pan. I love having all of my makeup in one place and neat and tidy.
OKay, first and foremost. Don't be a fool like me and buy things off the TV late at night when you cannot sleep. This foundation brings out every fine line and fine hair on my face. I am 35 with good skin condition....no wrinkles. But this foundation makes me look like I have wrinkles and have 45 year old skin. I do have dry skin, so I gave it another try with super hydrated skin. Guess what... it still looked terrible. Also, the compact it comes in is monstrously huge and cumbersome. The brush that come with it, may have been made out of pig bristles and hay...it felt like that.
Moisturizers -Signature Club A - advanced formula 5 essentials creme

Neither the eye or the face creams absorb well. I tried this creame under two different types of foundation and it had a chemical reaction with both. It caused the foundation to gel up into balls. I even tried to wait about 30 min before I put on foundation and it still caused my foundation to clump up. This cream is ghetto. It was a late night impulse purchase and I regret purchasing it. I did not like the feel of this cream on my face at night either...like a thin layer. My skin is dry and things readily absorb into it. This cream just did not feel good.
Concealers -Trish McEvoy - protective shield concealer

I have very dry skin and this product is perfection! I also have dark circles under my eyes and it covers them very well. It doubles as a base for eyesahdow. A bit of loose powder is needed to set this product. It lasts all day and NEVER EVER looks cakey fake. I am a big Trish Mcevoy fan, I use her makeup planner and have been able to condense lots of different products into a portable form.
i love the minty tingle. for $2.50 a tube, i will continue to buy it. It does not last long...but most moisturizers dont.
this product is not long wearing or moisturizing. it was all total hype. save your money
For you folks out there with dry skin, stay away from this product. My skin under my eyes was dry and cakey even after my usual under-eye moisturizer. I just wasted my thirteen dollars....I think I will put it on my swap list
