Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Sin

i am a firm believer in the original primer potion from UD. i wouldn't have bought this one on my own but I got this one and original for the price of one from Ulta. i tried it and i loved the color. it is a really nice beige/champagne color with shimmer that makes my eyeshadow pop. my only complaint is that is doesn't last as long as the original (10+ hrs) but i would definitely buy it again for the right price. however, i don't see myself buying this anytime soon because a little goes a long way and with the new squeeze bottle it's easier to get it out of the tube.
Eye Primer -Urban Decay - Eyeshadow Primer Potion - Original (UDPP)

i absolutely love this product. i have very oily skin so eyeshadow tends to come off or gather in my crease very easily. I have tried primers from others and they haven't worked as well as this primer. They now come in the squeeze tube that is really good. i wear this primer and i put on my eyeshadow and it stays put even when i go out and dance and sweat alot. it has lasted 10+ hours for me in the hot summer! i will definitely buy this product again (expensive as it is) but i don't see that happening very soon because a little goes a long way with this product. it's definitely worth the expense. i got a good deal from ulta with this (i got 2 for the price of one!) so I'm set for the foreseeable future.
Moisturizers -Aveeno - Ultra-Calming Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

i really wanted to love this product but i absolutely HATED it!!! i decided to use this product everyday for 2 weeks straight before i passed judgement. not only was my face really oily with this product, but it gave me more breakouts that i have had in a while. i naturally have oily, acne prone skin to begin with so this product was NOT a good fit for me. The one good thing about it was that it did calm the redness down a little bit but that isn't worth all the new breakouts that accompany it. the fragrance is also overpowering at first but you get use to it after a while. I wouldn't buy this product again because it didnt work for me and it was a waste of money as it was also expensive. from now on, im sticking to my neutrogena healthy defense moisturizer with spf 50 (it gives much better protection and isn't as oily and i most certainly didnt breakout with it!)
Skincare - Face -Neutrogena - Healthy Defense w/ spf 50

i love neutrogena products and have always come back to them over the years. I have very oily, sensitive, acne prone skin so i'm always worried about breaking out more than i already do. This moisturizer doesn't make me break out at all. my only complain is that it does make my face oily at the end of the day but that's mainly due to my naturally oily skin. I have tried aveeno ultra calming w/ spf 15 and absolutely hated it. it made my acne worse, my skin was waaay oilier and the fragrance was overpowering. so until i find another product that works for me (which i highly doubt) i'm sticking to my neutrogena w/ spf 50. i can handle a little oily skin easily w/ some blotting sheet (i like boscia blotting sheets best) for a product that does exactly what it says it does. my skin is back to being happy again. i will definitely buy again!
I have extremely oily skin with lots of acne so i'm very careful with what i use on my face. this blotting sheets are amazing!!!! you can actually see them soaking up the oil. I recently tried the lavender ones and i love them too! the good thing about these sheets is that they don't come with the powder that most of the blotting sheets have so it doesn't cause break outs by clogging pores. i actually found that the lavender sheets helped soothe irritations. bottom line, everyone should invest in this and i will definitely buy again!
Sunscreen -Unlisted Brand - Elta MD UV Clear SPF 46

I really wanted to like this product because my friend who's acne is worse than mine used this and it really worked for her. This product was way too strong for my sensitive skin. It actually clogged my pores and made me break out more. It didn't come off easily and when i was it off with my cleanser (Cetaphil gentle cleanser) it would burn intensely. It also caused my skin to get dry (I have extremely oily skin naturally) so this is a huge problem for me. bottom line, if you have sensitive, acne prone skin like me, DON'T use it. I'm going back to my Neutrogena Healthy Defense daily moisturizer with spf50.
I love this product! I use the matte version and have no complaints. Yeah after 5hrs I do need a blotter bc I naturally have really oily skin but I normally leave it alone bc it gives me a nice flushed look. I also have acne prone skin and this doesn't break me out. I use Neutrogena healthy defense sunscreen then the stila one step corrector before I put on BE. I use a cleanser wipe then cetaphil to completely remove it and wash my brushes often. These products are pricey but they last a long time. Will definitely be buying again!!!!!!
This product is one of the worst treatments ive tried in a long time. I had mild acne and decided to give this a try because others seemed to have good results with it. This aggravated my skin to the point where my acne got so bad that 2yrs later, I'm still trying to do damage control. It was way too strong for my sensitive skin and was pricey. I recently started seeing a dermitologist and she put me on retin-A which is doing wonders for my skin and is mostly covered by my insurance. Will definitely not be buying proactiv again!
I love this face wash. I've seen my mum and sister use this for years but I used a different face wash bc I had moderate-severe acne. I recently started seeing a dermatologist and she told me I will need to use a mild cleanser. I started with the cetaphil for oily to normal skin since that's my problem also but it dried my skin out a lot. So I switched to the gentle cleanser and it works well. True it doesn't give that "clean" feeling everyone looks for but it really works. My skin has never been calmer, smoother or softer. I do get the occasional breakout but they are significantly less than before. I would recommend using another cleanser or wipe to remove makeup and then use this so it gets off all the makeup. I use the simple brand cleansing wipes. Overall I'm a new believer in cetaphil products and realize I should have listened to my mum a while ago.
Honestly wasn't too sure of this for my sensitive oily acne prone skin. I put this on over my moisturizer (with sunscreen) then put on my bare minerals. It does make my makeup last longer and it doesn't make my skin as oily as other products have. Everyone expects this product to be an amazing product that fixes every discolorstion. As someone who.has a lot.of acne blemishes that are difficult to hide I can say that's hard to do. I have noticed that if I use this under my BE, it hides my acne scars better than if I don't use it. So overall, I'm content and will buy this again when the time comes which isn't going to be anytime soon. This product is not only beautifully packaged, but it also lasts a long time bc you only need to use a little.
I was really expecting alot from this wipe but was slightly disappointed. I do have oily ache prone skin but I didn't notice this causing me to break out. I did however notice a tightness in my skin after I used it which I didn't care for. It does also have a good resealable tab that keeps the wipes moist and it was really cheap. Overall, I'm going to continue using the wipes I have left but I'm going to look for another wipe that doesn't give me that tight sensation. If I don't find one I guess I'll continue to use these.
Blush -Stila - Custom Color Self Adjusting Blush in Coral
vedo4you 3/10/2012 1:08:00 AM
I absolutely love this blush! I have really sensitive oily acne-prone skin so I'm very careful with what I use. I tried this blush in Ulta and bought it. I put it on after I've put on my bare minerals veil. It goes on pink and a little bright but like it says, it does color adjust. It gives me a nice rosy hue which is a feat on my medium tan west Indian complexion. I will definitely buy it again but I don't forsee having to do so for a long time. With this blush, a little really does go a long way.
I'm gun-shy when it comes to makeup because i have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin. I spoke to my dermatologist about BE and she told me to try the matte version. i went to Ulta and had them color match me with a slightly darker shade than my skin tone (medium tan). I loved how it looked and how well it covered existing acne scars. Yes after 5+ hours, i noticed my cheeks (where i applied the bronzer) got slightly oily but it gave me more of a rosy hue. I use stila one step correct as my primer and have absolutely no complaints about it. My only complaint is that it's pricy but it's worth it and lasts a long time. completely satisfied and will definitely buy again.
