Masks -Unlisted Brand - Aztec - Indian Healing Clay

At first I wasn't sure if this stuff was doing me any good, but I think my skin was just purging. I just mix this with water and a little bit of my amazing Faerie Organics mineral spot treatment, then leave it on until it's all dry. I do a thin mask a couple times a week, and a thicker mask less often. I was having a problem with tiny bumps, clogged pores, but I am happy to report that this has really helped to clear them up! I have tried many clay masks over the years, this is by far the best! And for the best price! My skin feels crazy soft after using it, too.
I love this for washing my MU brushes! I also use it for washing off my eye MU when it's really heavy, but I suspect it causes tiny bumps on my temple if used too often. Other than that, great stuff! Very cheap, and mild scent.
This cleanser is so gentle and yet works! I love it! I use it in the am and pm. If rinsed numerous times it leaves no residue and requires a moisturizer, but is still not drying. If rinsed only a few times it is sufficient to go with out a moisturizer, but the residue is still barely anything worth speaking of. My skin has only gotten better since using this, when before I was suffering hormonal acne. The texture is lovely and creamy, the scent is barely detectable. I love this cleanser! My one complaint is that it is not great at removing heavy eye makeup.
I love this nail polish! The day glow color is wonderful, and no formula I am familiar with works as well as pure ice. It is fast drying and long lasting.
Moisturizers -MyChelle - clear skin balancing cream

I have used this product for two months. I am so thankful I decided to try it! It is my HG, at long last, something that actually makes a difference!! When I started using it my skin was a mess, hormonal acne gone wrong! Since using this my skin has gotten progressively better, and rather quickly! I am now washing my face and feeling smooth skin! Almost no bumps! And the few that remain are tiny! This has a lovely texture, and you need very little. It makes an amazing base for my mineral makeup! Smells very softly of lemongrass. I will not go without this. One little bottle actually lasts a long time.

I love the smell/taste and texture of this lipbalm, but it's not as moisturizing as I need.
Cleansers -Burt's Bees - Natural Acne Solutions - Purifying Gel Cleanser

I have used this for one month, or a little more. I was suffering tiny little bumps from a reaction to a product, plus my usual hormonal acne. This helped clear up the little bumps to an extent, but didn't do much more than that, except dry out my skin, which is dry to begin with. I imagine this would be a great soap for someone with very oily skin, as it did decrease my oil production. The bottle didn't give me any trouble, and the formula is not too watery, as many have said, it's not really a gel, though. The smell is pleasent, and like that citrus furniture polish, so it's a clean smell, for sure. Overall I think this is a good product, just not for my dry, sensitive skin.
Shampoo -Unlisted Brand - Mill Creek Keratin Shampoo

This is my new HG!!! Woohoo! I have very long, thick hair, and have had such a hard time finding a natural product that left it manageable! After washing it with this and the conditioner, it seemed like it would be the same with this one. But I let it dry to be sure and the results are amazing! So easy to brush! And it's always shiny, but it feels better than ever! I'm so happy, and I used half as much conditioner as I usually do! I am truly delighted, and will continue to purchase this! It feels cleaner than with any other natural shampoo I've tried!

I have only started using these this month, about once a week, or every 4 days. I figured out that if I DO NOT exfoliate first, more gunk gets pulled out. I thought it was just enlarged pores on my nose, but nope, there is stuff in there. Each time I use it I get only some pores cleaned out, and those ones are def. smaller after that. Eventually all my pores will have been cleaned out and my nose won't have tiny dark pores! That's the plan, anyway. I also found that I have to have my nose JUST the right amount damp, and I have to leave it on JUST the right amount of time, for optimal results. I am slowly getting better at these, and love the results, but eww! Gross!
I have this in cotton candy, it is light and shimmery, a nice lip balm with just a hint of pink. I like it enough that I would buy other colors. It is moisturizing and has no flavor or scent to speak of. Overall, a good product.
Treatments -Unlisted Brand - Sense - Serum Intensive

This is a great serum, the ingredients list is TDF, and it's good for acne prone skin. But I gave it up with the rest of the line. I received the sample pack of Usana Sense skin care line and all the products are nice, but best for aging skin. My acne prone skin did not react well.
Treatments (Eye) -Unlisted Brand - Sense - Eye Nourisher

This is my favorite of the Sense products, I used it 3 weeks and did not see a huge difference, but my skin did seem more supple. It's def. a quality product, and no bad side effects.

This is really nice, but it didn't do much for my skin. I received the sample pack of Usana Sense skin care line and all the products are nice, but best for aging skin. My acne prone skin did not react well.

I liked that this had SPF and did not make me oily through out the day. I received the sample pack of Usana Sense skin care line and all the products are nice, but best for aging skin. My acne prone skin did not react well.
