Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Red-E To Go All-In-One Hair Treatment
samtibo2 1/12/2012 4:41:00 PM
I love this all in one hair treatment!!! what it claims to do: - controls frizz - promotes silkiness - eliminates split ends - curtails hair breakage - locks and seals in color - acts as a shine enhancer - nourishes dry damaged hair - accentuates hair's natural body - acts as a flat & curling iron thermal protector I wear this product everytime I finish showering. My hair has improved so much ever since using this product. I have been buying this over 2 years and I am not planning on switching it. I usually get it for 20$.
Pro activ was not for me. The first time I used it, it burned my skin really badly and I was hesistant to use it again. But once I did, it cleared up half my acne. After a while of using this product, it didn't do anything to help. I hate it. It smells really bad too, like acne medication.
Masks -Freeman - Chocolate & Strawberry Detoxifying Mask

What it claims to do: helps tone skin and diminish the appearance of large pores. Shea and cocoa butter nourish and moisturize. Perfect for t-zone, normal and dry skin types. This product is amazing. It does tone my skin and reduce the appearance of large pores. My skin feels very soft after I wash it off. The thing I love the most about this product is that it has the color of chocolate and has that sweet smell of chocolate also! Definitely recommend.
Masks -Freeman - Facial Hydration Mask - Gogi Berry

This product was not for me. this product claims to: helps restore healthy skin tone and improves moisture retention. It soothes and hydrates creating supple, foft skin. Although it did made my skin feel smoother and more moisturized... It burned so so so much. My face was so red after washing it off and it broke me out a tiny bit. Do not recommend.
I love this freeman mask. :) It make my skin feeling normal... not dry, or oily. I have combination skin, and I applied it all over my face. My cheeks are dry, and my forehead, shin, and nose area are oily. This mask made my skin even and normal. This product claims to: helps soothe and calm problematic skin. Helps control oil production and reduce the appearance of large pores. Perfect for t-zone and oily skin types. this product did exactly what it claims to do!
Liquid -Rimmel - Lasting Finish 25 Hour Foundation
samtibo2 1/12/2012 4:18:00 PM
This is an amazing foundation. It doesn't feel or look cakey. I think it has medium coverage, and blends in smoothly and it is not difficult. It's in a squeeze tube so it's very sanitary. The only thing I'm not too crazy about is that there aren't many shade selections. I have 100 ivory, and it's still too dark for me!! If it was a bit lighter, this foundation would be perfect!
I love this concealer. It's the perfect shade (skin tone adapting concealer...) and it's easy to apply. Not a lot comes out at once, and sometimes sqeezing the tube to get anything out is difficult. The concealer looks great on my skin and it lasts long (unless, of course, if you keep touching your face and stuff, then you are wearing it off). I just don't think it conceals everything I'd like it too.
Scrubs -L'Oreal - Go 360 Clean Deep Exfoliating Scrub
samtibo2 1/12/2012 4:05:00 PM
In this product the ingredients are: aqua, sodium, laureth sulfate, sodium chloride, polyehylene, acrylates copolymber, coco-betaine, glycerin, ppg-5-ceteth-20 sodium benzoate, sodium hydroxide, salicylic acid, prunus armeniaca seed powder, benzyl salicylate, citric acid, parfum (by the way, salicylic acid is a acne medication) What it claims to do: gently exfoliates dull, dead skin cells and unclogs pore by pore. removes all traces of oil, dirt, and makeup. Pores look visibly smaller. I absolutely love this product! I find it exfoliates very well and leaves my skin really soft. It has helped my acne a bit, but I did notice my skin was visibly brighter looking and not as dull. Although, I only use this about 1-2 times a week, because it does dry out my skin if I use it too often (combination)
Treatments -Clean & Clear - Persagel 5% Benzoyl Peroxide
samtibo2 1/12/2012 3:58:00 PM
I bought this product two weeks ago. It's the clean & clear persa-gel 5. It has 5% benzoyl peroxide. Most products have either 1 or 2% of this ingredient. It's a very small tube. It's a great product. It works wonders for my acne (I have combination skin). The only thing I do not like a lot is probably that when I first apply the product it feels sticky and uncomfortable. I can not use it every single day because it really dries out my skin. So I usually use it every second or third day. update: This product does nothing for my skin anymore. It dries my skin out completely and just produces more oil no matter how little i put on. does not work for my acne.
Pressed Powders -Rimmel - Stay Matte Pressed Powder (ALL)
samtibo2 1/12/2012 3:52:00 PM
I love this pressed powder! I put it on my forehead, nose area, and chin and temples because I have combination skin and this powder helps my skin not look so oily. update: I still love this product... but i find it makes me look pale and it is very cakey, even when i put on just a little bit
Scrubs -Biore - Pore Perfect Pore Unclogging Scrub
samtibo2 1/12/2012 1:35:00 PM
I bought the biore pore unclogging scrub two weeks ago and I heard so many good things about this product, I wanted to love it. I don`t hate it, but I don't love it. It has salicylic acid which is an acne treatment, it says it's a ''complexion clearing scrub'' and it's supposed to unclog pores. It made my skin dry, and it helped with my acne just a little bit. I didn't feel a different when it came to unclogging my pores though. I LOVE the smell. Doesn't smell like acne medication. Overall, I will still use this product until something better comes along. Hope this helped! update: I love this product. After using it a few times, it made my skin smoothe. Does not make my skin dry anymore. It helps a lot with unclogging, and my skin is as smooth as a baby's bum. It helps control my acne, but acne still shoes up, but not as much. LOVE the smell.
Scrubs -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Stress Control Power-Clear Scrub
samtibo2 1/12/2012 1:32:00 PM
I absolutely love this product. I have combination skin type and I have moderate acne on my face. Most products I have bought in the past have not only dried out my skin, but have not helped a bit or caused even more breakouts. It says it treats acne even before it emerges and is a salicylic acid acne treatment.It's also supposed to uclog pores. And it did all of it! I bought this product two weeks ago and it was around 8$ (on sale). The first time I opened the bottle, I remember telling myself that the product smelt so good. Like cucumbers. I also remember thinking there wasn`t much product in the bottle. I washed my face with it, and it exfoliated my face. There are little micro-beads and some bigger ones. They aren`t the most comfortable beads, but not bad enough that I would stop using the product. Washing your face with this product, it leaves a tingly feeling (not a lot,but enough, it feels good, very refreshing). My face was smooth and my acne wasn`t as red. It didn`t dry out my skin! And I can use it everyday. I have been using this product for two weeks now and it's cleared up a lot of my acne dramatically. I still get breakouts now and than, but never like before... and this product helps it go away really fast.
