I was excited about this because I was able to find a shade that matched my skin exactly. But after using it a few times I find it cakes up and is difficult to blend. Also, it hasn't done much to control oil, and tends to leave my skin feeling dry after a while. This foundation does provide good coverage though, so it wasn't a total waste of money. I won't by it again.
This cleanser has done wonders for my acne prone skin. I use it every night with my clarisonic, and my skin has been pretty much clear since I started using it. The best thing about it is that it keeps my acne at bay without drying out my skin. It costs about $21 per bottle at shoppers drug mart and I will definitely keep buying it.
It provides medium coverage while still looking natural. Unfortunately none of the shades match my skin quite right. If they had my shade this would be the perfect foundation, but alas, none of them match.

For the first couple of weeks it really stung my eyes whenever I used it, but I didn't want to waste it so I kept using it. After using it for a while, it doesn't sting anymore, but it does not moisturize my skin. When I wake up the skin around my eyes feels dry, so I've stopped using it, and now it just sits on my bathroom counter. It only cost $20, which I think is pretty good for an eye cream, so I'm not too devastated, but I there are many better eye creams out there.

Out of all the moisturizers for acne prone skin that I have used, this is the only one that actually moisturizes my skin enough, along with treating blemishes. Most others just leave my skin feeling dry, especially during winter! I would say this is a good moisturizer for combination skin. The texture is really light and smooth. It comes in a nice glass bottle, but when there is still a few inches of moisturizer in the bottom of the bottle, none will come out of the pump so I end up having to throw it away with some product still left. It's really hard to take the pump off and get the bit left on the bottom, so I think it should be re-packaged so I can use all of it. I have been using it for the last few moths and love it, and I will keep using it!
