I could not be more dissapointed with this product. I have used HR foundation samples before that would give me an absolutely gorgeous complexion (prodigy foundation), and after reading some good reviews of this foundation online, I thought I would give this 'less' expensive and not aimed at aged skin product a go.

Very, very sheer. So sheer even that my skin, that isn't …

BB Cream - Garnier - BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector - Light/Medium

Received a free sample to try it out, and I really wanted to like it, but I didn't. It has a smell some might dislike- I thought it was not too-bad smelling, apricotty. It took forever to set, and even when it did, my face looked quite shiny. Not that pretty kind of glow, but really more towards oily. Light coverage, natural looking, except for the oily slick. I guess this could really work …Read more

As I have been using the Vichy Normaderm line for quite a while, and was looking for something more mattening during the summer, I gave this one a go. Not for me. It does keep you mat, for about 3 hours it lasted for me, then I would actually get very shiny/oily where normally I would not. Smell and texture is not as nice as other vichy moisturizers. Tried it a couple of times, also with a few …Read more

Moisturizers - CLINIQUE - Even Better Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer SPF 20

I won this product together with the serum. Must say that as a moisturizer it is quite nice. It is a bit too rich for my young, acné prone/combination skin, but I do use it every time I come out of the shower when my skin screams for some hydrating cream. Doesn't cause breakouts, but I do notice a slight increase in sebum production when I use it. I put it on every second day (shower day) …Read more

Shampoo - TRESemmé - Healthy Volume Shampoo

In Belgium, this goes under the brand name Syoss. I bought a bottle of this 2 years ago, and I still have it somewhere.. It was the worst shampoo for me: it irritated my scalp. After using it once or twice, my skin got very very itchy - I could NOT stop scratching my head until I would wash it thorougly with another shampoo. To rule out that this itchiness was because of something else, I did try …Read more

Love this mascara! Together with some other Maybelline mascaras, it's my go to mascara. I apply it just once, sometimes twice, and it gives me immediate volume, lenth and a more obvious curl. It does incline to clumb if you put on more layers, but honestly, you don't need more layers - at least I don't (I do have quite long thick lashes already). With one you already get a great …Read more

I have used this product for a couple of years now.This is my every day moisturizer, not because it's absolutely perfect, but mostly because of lack of better.

Pros:
- the smell - quite fresh and light
- mattening effect
- controls outbreaks (but does not rule them out)
- pump bottle design
- hydrates without making the skin oily
- redness …

Skincare - Face - CLINIQUE - 3 Step System

2.0

Mar/30/2012

Unfortunately, this product did not work for me. I noticed no improvement in my skin, but it did give me some dry blotches and irritated my skin. On top, I felt this treatment made my skin even olier (yes, combined with dry blotches) - I just have some small pimples here and there, but not really an oil problem, but after using this product, I suddenly had to wash my face a couple of times each …Read more
