Treatments -Garden of Wisdom - Skin Buffet Oxygen Rich Anti-oxidant Gel

I love this stuff. My acne isn't bad enough to use benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid, and they both dry my skin out horribly and make everything worse. This makes my skin smooth, clear and my blackheads non-existant. I started using this with the Simply Clean Tea Tree Cleanser from GoW and my skin has been flawless ever since. I still use my Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel as a final step. It might not be strong enough for someone with severe acne, but for someone with light to moderate acne, it is a great product.

This is my HG cleanser. It makes my skin feel really, really clean but not dry or tight. My pores look great and my acne is almost non existant since I started using this in conjunction with the Garden of Wisdom Oxygen Serum. I started with the sample and I'm on to the huge size now because I love it so much. It's a little pricy in the long run it's cheaper because you use so little. I still use this cleanser when I use my Clarisonic Mia every other day. My skin looks so smooth and clear, and I'm mostly amazed that my blackheads are gone and my sebacious filaments (A lot of people think that sebacious filaments are black heads, they're not. Sebacious filaments are in every pore and are light brown or gray, not black. If you squeeze them they will naturally fill back up within a few hours.) So, my sebacious filaments look AWESOME and clear. Barely noticable, and I attribute that to this cleanser and the Oxygen Gel.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Super Rescue Antioxidant Night Moisturizer

I love this moisturizer, I use the Combination/Oily and if I ever stray from it I always come back. It doesn't break my oily, acne prone skin out and, in fact, I think it helps my break outs by normalizing my skin. The price tag is steep but a bottle for me lasts 6 months, so I really only buy it twice or three times a year, so in the long run it's not bad since I use it every single night. This is my HG night moisturizer. I use it on top of Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum and I'm never going to stop.

Wonderful. Makes my skin smooth and actually makes my oily skin less oily, just radiant. Has helped clear up my acne to nearly non-existent. It seems pricy but it lasts forever.
Buying this is the best thing I have ever done for my skin. It was expensive, but after seeing how great it is, I would gladly pay triple the price. My face has never looked so radiant, and I haven't had a blemish in months. The money I save on foundation is amazing, I barely wear it anymore! Do yourself a favor and take the plunge!
Conditioner -Alberto Vo5 - Vanilla Mint conditioner

I am obsessed with this smell! I would buy water scented with this. It lingers nicely but not too much, and makes my shower a bit nicer. Now, as a conditioner, it's great for what I was looking for: lightweight, mildly conditioning, no residue left behind. If you're looking for deep moisture, this is not for you. I wanted something light to detangle and not weigh my hair down. If you need deep moisture or want your hair smoothed or weighed down, you'll be disappointed. I hope they never discontinue! And for 87 cents you really can't go wrong. If you don't like it for your hair, it makes a great shave cream!
Lip Treatments -Fresh - Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15

I have never been so disappointed with a product! Let me say that yes, it smells SO good, like lemon candies. My boyfriend loved the smell. However, he's still picking in me for spending so much on a lip balm, and after using it for awhile, I feel almost ashamed at how much I spent. It was thin, dried up so quickly, and literally left my lips hard and flaky after a few hours. I hoped - prayed! - that it was something else, but as soon as I switched lip products the flaking went away. This does not last and is not moisturizing. I feel like a fool for paying so much!! Save your money.
