I bought this because I heard salicylic acid was good for getting rid of pimples, so I was excited to start using it. At first it was fine. I have normal skin with the occasional littlest bit of oil and this dried up my skin - maybe a little too much. My face was a bit tight, but I didn't mind all that much. (It would probably be great for people with really oily skin) What did bother me was the little red bumps that developed on my T-zone after about a week. Tons of them. I should have read the reviews first before I bought it. I've stopped using this and will not buy again. Ever.
Treatments -Neutrogena - Rapid Clear Acne Eliminating Gel

I bought this about four weeks ago. The first time I tried it, I applied it on a pus filled pimple. It didn't work too well. But today I decided to try it again, this time on a few red, just-emerged pimples. I dabbed a thin layer on each just as it advises, and three hours later I was amazed at what I saw. The gel had dried but my pimples were noticeably smaller! With three or four more applications, they were hardly that obvious at all. One con is the price that I payed for the little 15 mL tube - $8.96 at Wal-Mart. It's a little high for my taste, but it does work. So I'll probably buy it again depending on how my third time using this goes.
Bought this on sale, and thought it wouldn't be much to lose to give it a try. This mascara is okay, but it's not phenomenal either. Yes it does define lashes, and hardly clumps, but when I bought this I was looking for a mascara that gave me super dramatic lashes I wouldn't have to work hard for (and found it with CG LashBlast). This could be perfect for others but it's just not the right one for me. Didn't use this much anyway. Will definitely not repurchase.
I bought this mascara a very very long time ago, maybe 4 or 5 years ago, but I thought I'd review it anyway. This is a very good mascara if you're going for a natural look. In my experience with it, I find that it doesn't clump at all and it's good for defining lashes. But that's about it. It's decent but I think there are way better mascaras out there today.
Lotions/ Creams -Olay - Quench Body Lotion Extra Dry Skin

I had been looking for a lotion that could truly moisturize my very dry scaly legs for a long time, so when I saw the commercial for this lotion I was really hopeful. I bought it and immediately put it on when I got home. It sunk right into my skin, but the real test was whether or not it could last. And it did! I didn't have to reapply it 4 hours later like other lotions. In fact it lasted even longer - whole day longer. There is also some subtle shimmer, not gold sparkles like I read in another review. I love this lotion, and I'd use it more - if only I hadn't broken the dispenser pump. But I bought two more that I'm going to try not to break. Anyway, if you have very dry skin, like mine, I strongly suggest you try this stuff. It's awesome!
I just bought this today for $7.99 and I have to say I'm really impressed. I've been looking for a mascara that will single-handedly fatten up my lashes, define, and lengthen them at the same time. Lash Blast did exactly that. I wear glasses, so I find that many mascaras that I try give my lashes a natural look - in order words, you hardly notice them behind the lenses. With Lash Blast, I used two coats to get the intense look I wanted. And I could actually really see my lashes. I'm very satisfied with my purchase.
