Cleansers -Clean & Clear - Advantage 3-in-1 Exfoliating Cleanser
skulskc27 8/10/2012 7:27:00 PM
This is the only product I have found to actually GET RID of blackheads. Seriously, even after one use, I looked in the mirror and found my blackheads to be nearly gone. This cleanser is so amazing. I even leave it on for a few minutes as a mask. Please, please if anyone has had a problem with blackheads try this. It is only 6$ at walmart and works better than my epiduo prescription.
I have naturally medium ash blonde hair. Over the last year I have gradually gone to a super light blonde. I started off going to a salon and getting highlights. I eventually lightened up my base enough so I just had to get my roots bleached. Going to the salon I spent anywhere between 115$ to 270$. I decided enough was enough with the cost and I could achieve the same results at home. I researched at home bleaching and found good reviews on this product. I mixed 2 oz bleach powder with 4 oz 20 volume developed and let it sit on my roots for 35 minutes. The results were perfect platinum. I "toned" my hair with shimmer lights shampoo. Will use it again.
Liquid -Maybelline - SuperStay Makeup - New Version

I have been using this foundation for about a week. So far I love it. Previously I was using CG whipped trublend and decided I would try this. I like it so much better. This has a nice semi-matte finish, matches my super fair skin, and doesn't feel heavy or cakey. Update: after a few weeks I noticed this isn't a great color match and tends to oxidize and turn orangy. I switched to colorstay combination/oily and I am liking it alot better than this. I will do a review soon. I am downing this to two lippies since it looks good if I am only wearing foundation for a few hours.
This product is one of the worst I've tried. I loved it for 2 days. At first it made my face smooth and feel clean then 3 days later I had more blackheads and whiteheads then I had my entire life. Don't buy this it sucks.
Love this mascara. Makes my already long lashes look super long. The only negative is it tends to smudge on my bottom lashes as the day goes on.
Scrubs -St. Ives - Apricot Scrub Blemish and Blackhead Control

I love, love, love this scrub. I have been using this for 3 years. I use it every morning. I think it is gentle enough for everyday use. I have tried many harsher scrubs like the one I use to buy from the health food store I think there was pumice in it. This makes my skin smooth, baby soft, reduces/eliminates blackheads and whiteheads. I highly reccommend this to all my friends. Holy grail scrub.
Cleansers -Neutrogena - Oil-Free Acne Wash redness soothing cream cleanser

I really like this cleanser. I wash my face twice. The first time to remove makeup the second time to cleanse. I then let the cleanser sit on my face for 10 minutes as an exfoliating mask. I read in allure a few months ago it's like a less harsh glycolic peel. It seems to be doing a good job at reducing redness and helping my cosmetic acne caused by philosophy products.
Cleansers -Philosophy - Purity Made Simple (Real Purity Cleanser)
skulskc27 9/13/2009 11:28:00 AM
I used this cleanser for over a month. The only thing I liked was the scent it smelled really earthy kinda like pinesol but I liked it alot. Anyway I really, really wanted to love this face wash but I didn't. It didn't clean that good, left a oily residue and left my pores clogged and congested. This caused me to have a large cluster of whiteheads on my chin. This product would probably be good for someone older with more mature skin that was on the dry side. I bought the big bottle so gave it to my mom who is 57 and she really likes it. It leaves her face soft and moisturized. 0 lippies from me 3 from her
Moisturizers -Kinerase - Clear Skin Moisture Light [DISCONTINUED]
skulskc27 9/9/2009 6:00:00 PM
I have been using this product for 2 weeks. I read all the reviews here and had high hopes for this product. Positives: really hydrates, I mean really does reduce redness Negatives: My skin has never looked so oily in my entire life usually normal with a little shine on my nose. In 3 hours I look liked someone rubbed a stick of butter on my face. Makes my make-up feel cakey on my face after a couple of hours. It pisses me off I spent nearly 80$ and this makes me look greasy. I prefer Neutrogena rapid clear moisturizer over this and it only costs 7 dollars. I guess I will use it as a night treatment that way nobody has to see my shiny face.
Skincare - Face -Philosophy - On A Clear Day Completely Clear Skin System

I saw this at sephora for 75$ for the full size kit so I bought that along with the on a clear day moisturizer. My skin was okay I had a couple white heads that were annoying so I decided to switch up my skin care routine. First I hated the cleanser. I don't like foaming cleansers and this didn't make my face feel clean. The salyclic acid lotion was okay but I prefer a product to have 2% this only had .5% The retinol lotion dried out my face like a turd. The sulfur spot treatment cause my small little whiteheads to spread into a whole chin full of zits. The moisturizer I bought with the kit sucked. My face was dry so I kept packing this on little did I know this product contains silicone and was further clogging my pores. It's been 3 weeks since I stopped using this kit and my face is finally recovering.
