This didn't really do much for my skin. It was like putting nothing on. A few times when i put it on before I went to sleep I did noticed calming of redness when I woke up the next day. Anyways I originally bought this in January to help my new acne patches 4 month later of persistent use and guess what it's still there. I think the formula could be too gentle for my skin. Anyways My acne is finally healing thanks to st ives. green tea cleanser =]
This is not a very good product. Its easy to put on with your fingers but you really need the mineral powder to set it or else by the end of the day you will look like you never put on concealer. The powder really doesn't work well with the concealer. I find that when the powder is applied the whole thing just cakes up. For the price (12$) its really not worth it, with another 4-5 bucks extra you can just get yourself a mac cream concealer.

I have dark eye circles and lines under my eye (I suspect its from dehydration). Anyways this eye cream didn't help me with any of that. Its really oily so not too good for day time use. Like others said it makes a good lip balm but eye cream? not so much. Not recommended.

This lotion smells like the dusky old home of a pack rat hoarding old woman that recently passed in her sleep. I put some on and went to eat my dinner, goodness gracious the smell made me lose my appetite (didn't think it was that bad before, until you eat while smelling it). The product itself is good but because of the smell I had to reconsider buying the full size (I use the sample)
I love this toner. Its hydrating and it smells really nice. It does help with minimizing my pore size, but when I stopped using a toner for 2 months my pores got big again.But I went back to using it my pore shrunk again. Nonetheless I recommend this product, it lasts a long time too. Most stores don't carry this product but I found mine at Walmart.
I really like how it smells and its hydrating. I put it on my zits but I'm not sure if it works. I remember when I would use it with my benzoyl peroxide 10% my pimples would go away in 2-3 days.Using it alone I saw less of an improvement. Maybe I'm just not a salicylic acid type of skin? Its worth a try though since it worked for so many other people.

After using this product for a few months it helped reduce the redness on my face that has troubled me for most of my high school years. I thought I had rosecea, but I think I just had sensitive skin that was constantly irritated/red. I also bought it in hopes of healing my acne scars, I don't think it really helped on that one. I usually use it at night because it is way too oily to use during the day. Its a great lip balm too. Since this product is natural I believe it works slowly so result are very gradual.
Moisturizers -Eucerin - Redness Relief Perfecting Lotion with spf 15

This is basically a green moisturizer used for neutralizing the redness on your face. This has a light consistency. Its hard to blend in, If you do not rub it in correctly, green will show up on your skin. If you have visible pores the green will stay in your pores. I could still see the redness after using this. And it was 15.99, not worth it especially when it is only sp 15. Don't buy it. The only good thing is it lightens your skin making it appear brighter.
