Skincare - Face -Beauticontrol - All Clear Skin System
mspears 1/29/2004 4:09:00 PM
I use the entire all clear system. It consists of a skin wash, skin solution (toner), skin scrub, and moisturizer. This line is for acne prone skin. I was a little skeptical about using this, so I bought the travel size bottles to try it out. Before I was completely out of the products, I called up my Beauticontrol consultant to get the full size bottles. This system is great. My face cleared up quickly. When I get new blemishes, this stuff clears them up pretty quickly. I have some acne scarring, and I am noticing that the scarring is going away too. This isn't the cheapest skincare that you'll find. However, it is definitely worth a try. It really does work well.
Pressed Powders -Beauticontrol - Secret AGEnt Pressed Powder

I love, love, love this powder. This is a pressed powder that I put on whenever I get a little shiny during the day. It's the best. It is a light deflective powder. It hides the wrinkles and lines. I love this. My skin looks great when I have this powder on.
Cleansers -Rachel Perry - Tangerine Dream Cleanser [DISCONTINUED]

I liked this cleanser a lot. If you have sensitive skin, this cleanser may be a little too harsh for you. I can't use this cleanser everyday. However, I can use it a couple of times a week, and it works great.
Moisturizers -Clinique - Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion

I really liked this moisturizer in the beginning. My skin felt smooth. However, in a matter of days, my skin started to breakout. It took me a couple of days to realize that this moisturizer is what caused the breakouts. By that time, my breakouts were getting out of control. I saw a huge difference when I stopped using this.
Masks -Clean & Clear - Deep Action Cleansing Mask (oil -free)
mspears 1/27/2004 5:07:00 PM
I LOVE THIS MASK. This mask smells so clean. My skin is acne prone and sensitive. I usually wouldn't bother with a facial masks, because most of them are very irritating. This mask is different. My skin looks very radiant and feels so smooth after using this. This is definitely worth trying. The price is excellent for the performance.
I actually like this toner at first. It does the job on clearing up blemishes. The problem that I had is that it is so drying. My face was flaky and dry. I had a hard time putting my makeup on. If I would yawn or open my mouth, I could see the dry skin flaking around my mouth. I stopped using this, and in a matter of days, my face was back to normal.
Lotions/ Creams -Mary Kay - Private Spa Collection - Embrace Dreams

Embrace Dreams is a pretty floral scent. I love it. It is very subtle, not too heavy or perfumey. I, especially, love it when I take my shower at night. I can smell the scent in my sleep. This is definitely worth trying.
This is the one of the best concealers that I've ever used. It covers very well. I have acne prone skin, and I can use this concealer without having any problems with breakouts. The coverage is excellent.
I love this eyeshadow. It is perfect when you want a smoky eye. It can be worn with almost any lipstick or lipgloss. Sometimes when I can't decide on a eyeshadow, I use this one because I know that I can't go wrong with this.
I got this stuff as a gwp. I am so glad that I didn't pay for this. It broke my skin out terribly. I used this cream one night, and the next morning I had about 5 new pimples. This cream is a little watery. It goes on very thin. I don't think that I'll be trying this again.
Scrubs -Avon - Clearskin Cleansing Scrub Exfoliant [DISCONTINUED]
mspears 1/20/2004 12:02:00 PM
Okay, I have always been skeptical about using Avon products on my skin. I guess I always thought that it was so cheap, and you get what you pay for. Well, this scrub has proved me wrong. This is the absolute best scrub that I've ever used (and I used a lot). At first, it is a little tingly. It feels like it has menthol in it. After I got used to that, I ended up loving this scrub. It makes my face really smooth, and it is helping in fading some dark acne spots that I have. I will definitely repurchase.
Lip Treatments -Mary Kay - Satin Lips mask and balm
mspears 1/20/2004 11:59:00 AM
I love this stuff. I makes my lips really smooth, and it removes any dead skin from my lips. I didn't think that I would like this at first. Then I started to get really dry, chapped lips, and I decided to give this a try. I am really glad that I did. It's definitely worth a try.
I like this concealer a lot. I use it on my undereye circles. The only thing that I don't like about this concealer is that it contains oil. I have acne-prone, oil skin so I can't use this concealer on other parts of my face.
Eye Makeup Remover -Mary Kay - Oil Free Eye Makeup Remover
mspears 1/20/2004 11:56:00 AM
This remover is really nice. It only takes a little, and it removes all of your eye makeup. It feels a little greasy while you're using it, but it isn't really greasy at all. I will definitely repurchase.
I love this foundation. I have used MAC Studiofix for 6 years. I just recently switched to Beauticontrol. I absolutely love it. I definitely beats Studiofix which is surprising, because I really like Studiofix. This foundation is definitely worth a try. I have acne prone skin, and this hasn't broken me out at all.
