The best powder blush. Others have made me break out. It's not too dry/powdery looking and not too sparkly.

I wasn't expecting this to work out but I've tried so many lotions creams for my sensitive skin and had issues with every one. I use the one for dry skin and it's perfect even on the humid days..skin stays moisturized but not oily. It hasn't caused breakouts, in fact, the tiny bumps I get on the forehead and cheeks have disappeared. I love the packaging, and it's cheap.

I only use this to powder my t-zone and it works well for me when I lightly apply it. I just don't like that it has frangrance and I have very sensitive skin. But so far, using it sparingly, it's worked out fine. No breakouts. The packaging stinks....
I bought the coffee cake one and I really liked the color. But this blush is hard to spread without a lot of tugging and pulling at your cheeks and overall just looks dry not glowy like I expected. Too matte-looking for me.

A nice non-irritating and hydrating toner. I really think this calmed my acne down. I use it to take off excess makeup after cleansing and to wake my face up in the morning. I'm just glad I found a toner that doesn't irritate or dry my skin out. The bottle leaks and doesn't pour out the right amount..
I like the look of cream blushes but most don't stay on all day. This one stays put all day. The color 'Haute' is the perfect pink for my fair skin. I also love the jar it comes in with the little mirror. The only downside is the ridiculous price and that it doesn't spread as well as I want. Sometimes it can look blotchy.

This was hard to get used to applying as I am used to liquid liners. This is not as convenient to use. But it has amazing staying power--truly is waterproof and smudge-proof. I find you have to clean the little brush it comes with often or it's hard to apply. Overall, I'll continue using this for the staying power and price.
Although it was gentle enough for my sensitive skin--none of that tightness, dryness or redness I usually get from exfoliating washes, it was very pricy for a product that did nothing. I used it for a couple of months and saw now improvement. In fact, it seemed to worsen the tiny bumps on my jaw line and forehead.

This is definitely not for my sensitive skin though it claims to be. After a couple of uses, I got blotchy bumpy skin. I have to say though that it is awesome at removing makeup.

Better than I expected for a cheaper eye cream than I usually use. It looks like it actually does help with puffiness. And the crepey lines aren't so prominant. It's moisturizing enough for my dry eyes and not greasy or heavy--works great with makeup. I also love the dispenser--perfect amount comes out and very sanitary. Overall, my eyes look brighter and moisturized.
Okay morning eye cream. It's light, absorbs nice, works well with makeup but I found after a week of use, it started to sting my skin and I found it not to be moisturizing enough. Also, I don't think it actually does anything. The brightening effect is from the light-reflecting particles.
This was a great moisturizer for my face but with continued use, I kept breaking out. But I thinks it's great as a body moisturizer.

This wasn't moisturizing enough for me. It also irritated my eyes--made them water like mad every time. Also kind of thick to apply.

The cream end of this works very well for dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes and the stick side works good for acne scars etc. The color is perfect for me and the consistency of the cream is just right for the eye area thick enough to cover but not too thick that it's heavy and it doesn't settle into wrinkles. It also has good staying power.

It gentle and non-drying but it does nothing for acne, though it didn't make it worse. I've tried this one and the one for acne--neither worked. I thinks it's great for sensitive skin but not if you need something for acne.
