Moisturizers -Weleda - Almond Soothing Facial Lotion
natalie225 2/1/2013 12:47:00 AM
This product just wasn't for me. I have normal sensitive skin, and for some reason this product would not absorb all the way into my skin. It left a thick heavy feeling which worked against makeup application. On days I don't wear makeup it's nice because it does calm down the pink / red tones in my face. This product does leave your skin matte, I prefer a glow, so this was another con for me. I also had an initial breakout, just a few small bumps that turned into tiny whiteheads, they did go away after a week. Breakouts can often initially happen with a change in product so this wasn't a huge concern for me. Good product, but not for me.
Moisturizers -La Roche Posay - Toleriane Soothing Protective Facial Cream
natalie225 12/4/2012 1:52:00 AM
I also tried Toleriane soothing protective fluide and I do like this one better. I have sensitive skin that is normal and slightly combination. This moisturizer is light and great under makeup, day time and summer use is best. I don't feel that it has any anti aging properties so I will probably search for another moisturizer if I find that becomes more concerning. This does not break me out, clog my pores, or irritate my skin.
This product is very light. It's great for under makeup during hot summer days, but it proved to be just too light for me. My skin is closer to normal / combination and this moisturizer is definitely for oily skin.
Cleansers -Beauty Without Cruelty - Vitamin C Facial Cleanser with CoQ10
natalie225 12/4/2012 1:33:00 AM
I finally found my HG cleanser. This cleanser is amazing! Removes all makeup, leaves skin clean, radiant, refreshed, and no redness or irritation for my sensitive skin.
I'm officially obsessed with this product. I use it everyday. When the Laura Mercier rep recommended it to me I thought I had plenty of eye shadow bases from urban decay and Mac among others. But I realized this one was different, mainly in the fact that you can just wear it as an eyeshadow and it makes your lid look bright and flawless. I spend most of my work week just wearing wheat on my eyelid. It's fast and easy to apply and instantly brightens your eye to a natural refreshed look. I had no idea how discolored my eyelids were and how many fine veins I had until I compared the difference in the natural daylight between an eyelid with wheat and one without. It is so quick and easy to use, my go to product when I'm in a hurry for the day but don't want tired looking eyes. Love this product!

I'm surprised no one has reviewed this mask yet. I really love this mask, especially to use during the summer months. I have sensitive skin and it does not irritate or break me out. After use it leaves a refreshing and tingly feeling. Pores are smaller, face is tight and smooth, extraordinarily soft, and complexion balanced. Will definitely repurchase.
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Loving Naturals Hand & Body Lotion
natalie225 4/29/2012 3:02:00 PM
After discovering cosmeticdatabase.com I came across this product. It's all natural and free of toxins and chemicals. It does an excellent job of moisturizing and does not leave skin greasy afterwards. I purchased it in the peppermint and vanilla flavor which I find particularly relaxing. The peppermint feels refreshing on the achy parts of my body and also feels cooling when the weather is warm. Will definitely repurchase due to the natural ingredients.
This review is for the rose hip seed facial cleanser. After learning about EWG and searching cosmeticdatabase.com I came across this product. I love the smell of the cleanser, it smells just lightly of roses. It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth. I have sensitive skin and there is no redness or irritation after use. Best of all it completely removes my mascara and eyeliner without the need for additional eye makeup remover. Excellent product. Update - after nearly finishing the bottle I noticed my skin started looking a little dull and was not removing black heads and cleaning my pores as well as initially. Just switched to BWC vitamin c coq 10 face wash and love it!
Lotions/ Creams -Unlisted Brand - Mineral Fusion body lotion

The scent was nice and the produt absorbed quickly, but I did not feel that it was very moisturizing. Probably a nice produt for someone looking for a light moisturizer.
The first few uses of this product I wasn't too impressed for the price, however after continued use I began to notice improvement in my skin tone. Primarily the fact of how incredibly soft my skin began to feel. I also like how little of the product you have to use to cleanse your face. I have sensitive skin and this product does not break me out, irritate my skin, or leave my skin red, it is a very gentle soap. The only draw back is that it does not 100% remove all of my black eyeliner. Another concern is the user post below regarding the ingredients, will need to check out the site referenced, cosmeticsdatabase.com. Update - after reading the users post below regarding the ingredients and visting cosmeticdatabase.com I came across a cleanser by Be Natutal Organics made with rose hip seed, as I really loved the roses from the fresh cleanser. It does an excellent job of removing all makeup without irritating my sensitive skin and leaves it just as soft as the fresh cleanser. I highly recommend visting cosmeticdatabase.com to learn more about the products you're using.
Overall not very impressed with this eye cream. It does a good job moisturizing, but that is about it. After 1 month of use I have no noticeable improvement in under eye color, plumpness, or brightness. Lotion feels rich and creamy so perhaps this is a nice product for someone only concerned about wrinkles and dry skin. However, if you are looking to brighten the eye area, improve color and texture, and plump wrinkles then this is not the lotion for you.
Skincare - Face -Derma E - Age-Defying Moisturizing Complex with SPF 15

This is product does not irritate my sensitive skin and it does not break me out. Adequate amount of mosturization. The only thing lacking for me is a nice healthy glow after use. This product leaves my skin a little dull and matte, so perhaps this product may be better for those with slightly oiler skin. Also, the consistency does not work well with my foundation, I find that I since it leaves my skin more matte I'm almost pulling and tugging at my skin to spread my foundation.
Overall a good product. Removes 95% of my makeup, does not irritate my sensitive skin, does not cause breakouts, and it leaves my skin feeling clean. I prefer to use this in the Summer, there are some winter nights it can be slightly drying, but either than that no complaints.
I have sensitive skin and do not find this product soothing. Immediately after application it makes my face red. The redness does subside, but the fact that its initially causing redness leads me to belive there are some ingredients that are irritants. I find it does a nice job removing any leftover traces of makeup, but overall for the price I am not very impressed. Will not repurchase.
Lipstick -Bobbi Brown - Creamy Lip Color in Rose Petal
natalie225 2/9/2012 1:54:00 PM
This is a great every day color, the product itself is nice and moisturizing and lasts without easily rubbing off. My only complaint about the product is I feel it spoils fast. If you consistently use one color everyday it's no big deal, but if you trade out colors and own this product for more than 6months you will notice it starts to smell funny and tastes funny when you apply it.
