My favorite moisturizer to heal my dry spots and pimples all at once. Great scent, nice to the touch. One of the few products I always have a spare bottle of.
A big wet smeary mess. WHY is this so popular??!
Eye Makeup Remover -Rimmel - Gentle Eye Make Up Remover

Scentless and removes my waterproof makeup, one less stick for the occasional sting in my very sensitive eyes. I often go through it too fast because I use too much at a time.
Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Continuous Control Acne Wash

I have used this product several times and have been pleased. Sometimes for my combo skin this becomes too harsh for hormone related dryness. I use this in the shower and let it set in for about a minute and truly feel my skin to be rid of the feeling of greasy pores, especially on my chin and nose.
This product did detangle my hair, at a cost. Too little did nothing, too much caused a feeling of heaviness which is a downside to me and my bushy voluminous hair.
Shampoo -Paul Mitchell - Cleanse- Tea Tree Special Shampoo

Oddly, this product worked far better on my dandruff and oily scalp when I was a preteen/young teen than it did for me at age 20. The nice cooling effect it gives wears off way too fast. If it weren't for the price I might have tried it one last time.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 85

Very pleased with this product, so much so I growl at whoever comes near it. The only problem I have had is with excessive sweating from high humidity that makes it easy to rub off unless it is applied very often, which defeats the point of buying an SPF 85 sunscreen.
If you are super careful to not over apply this mascara, this stuff is your friend. But that is just sooo hard to do, isn't it? Especially for the price.
I liked the bold effect of this eyeliner but was disappointed with the petite size of the bottle, even though the felt tip was very nice. I could not get a thin line easily enough with this product.
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - Soothing Lip Buffer-Gentle Formula

This works and isn't harsh, as advertised. The fact that the scrub inside is paired with a very nice oil is what sells this to me.
Lip Treatments -C.O. Bigelow - My Favorite Lip Balm

This is hands down my favorite lip gloss in terms of relieving chapped lips and looking natural and alluring. The sweet almond oil is brilliant and the taste isn't bad at all. My only gripe is that the tube container is a bit messy albeit good for applying before the tube betrays you and gives you way too much per application.
I liked this product the first time I used it, and that was it. After that, no matter how well I kept it sealed and in a good temperature area, it got too thick and began to chip.
I found success with this product only when I used it to a. hide new acne scars or sunburn or b. to hide ruddy cheeks/excessive blushing. I have very pale skin and I did not look like an avocado even if I overused this product. For the price, however, I'm not super impressed.
I have used a good 4 or 5 bottles of this product as an in-shower exfoliator and have been pleased with the results. I recommend not using the medicated version on dry skin-it will likely feel tighter and dryer.
The first time I used this, I broke out which was disappointing considering the overwhelming support this product gets on skin care enthusiasts on youtube :P But the second time I used this, my skin felt amazing. This may be due to the fact I left it on longer than before.
