Last year I bought shiseido SPF 55 face cream and I absolutely loved it but it cost me 50 dollars for 2 oz which was a little bit ridiculous, so this year I tried finding something comparable that still had a very high SPF because I am extremely fair and I burn very easily. I found this sunscreen at the drugstore for 14.99 and that's a good price compared to the 50 I spent the year before and I have to say that I actually really like this sunscreen. I usually mix it with my daily moisturizer and put it on in the morning and it sinks into the skin fairly fast, it doesn't leave a white cast and it isn't oily, basically everything it advertised is how it worked with my skin, by the end of the day my nose was a little bit oily but I have found that if I put a little bit of transparent mineral veil on my t-zone after applying the sunscreen and then putting foundation on after seems to get rid of that problem. All in all I really like this sunscreen, it has a high SPF of 60, works well, protects my skin and I will most definitely purchase it again.
Sunscreen -Cetaphil - UVA/UVB Defense Facial Moisturizer SPF 50

This was the biggest waste of my money. I would not suggest this stuff to anyone. Cetaphil usually makes quite decent products so I was excited to find a moisturizer by them with sunscreen in it. I could not wait to wash this crap off of my face, I have combo skin.. my cheeks are dry but my t-zone gets a little bit oily throughout the day but this stuff makes your face look greasy enough to fry eggs on, it feels terrible on the skin.. it doesn't absorb at all, it just feels gross, i'm hoping i can return it tomorrow and get my money back.
Cleansers -Juice Beauty - JUICE BEAUTY CLEANSING MILK

I absolutely love juice beauty products, I used to have fairly uneven skin and I was using proactive for the longest time but wanted to try something new without lots of chemicals and I picked up this cleanser juice beauty's misting spray and nutrient moisturizer and I've got to say I have the best skin I've ever had in a very long time, I no longer break out. This cleanser is awesome but I would suggest using a cloth with the cleanser for a deeper clean. Over all I love the smell, it makes your skin feel soft and removes makeup pretty well.
This foundation is definitely great for special occasions when you want your foundation to stay on all day without touch ups and it stays matte and no shine but I wouldn't recommend this as an every day foundation, I personally find it too heavy to wear every day and if you have sensitive skin it will most likely clog your pores and cause acne, good product for once in a while but I probably won't ever buy it again.
