I have been in a exfoliate kick lately, but my main goal for 2017/2018 was to transition to cruelty free products. This product worked fantastic and I loved using it, but the packaging was terrible. It came in a tub and would be runny. But, overall I loved the effect this gave after using it. I found my skin to look for youthful and clean. Would def by again if packaging was changed.

I purchased this stick in Classic Ivory #120. This is a great match for my skin - literally blends right in, no orange tones at all. I have never found a stick foundation that matches like that. I use a beauty sponge to apply this to my skin. I am not a fan of just swiping the stick where I want it. The beauty blender allows me to add more coverage and to stipple it where I need more …Read more

Scrubs - Freeman Beauty - Feeling Beautiful Charcoal & Black Sugar Facial Polishing Mask

Oct/04/2014

The only reason I would not purchase this again is because it is so freaking abrasive... between the micro-scrubbing charcoal and then the sugar granuals, it just ripped my skin apart. Way to rough. I did not have any adverse reactions to it, but I only used it once and returned it. I felt like I could make this at home with a bag of cheap sugar.

I am loving charcoal products, but …

I used to use the Biore self heating mask when I was younger and then they stopped making it. Now, they are selling it again, but I received a sample of the Garnier Clean + Blackhead eliminating scrub I was skeptical because rembering the Biore heating mask that also had Charcoal in it, did not help my skin. The Garnier product is HEAVEN! I think it has to do with the fact that this is a …Read more

So, I went on the Flower Beauty website and watched all of the Drew Barrymore tutorials on how to use the products in the line and this one stood out to me. I love stick foundation - LOVED Loreals quick stick which has been discontinued for years :(. I purchased this in two colors Shade 1 and 2, figuring if one was too light, I had one slightly darker. Well, neither looked good. I love yellow …Read more

I love this mini brush mascara! Having a petite face with small eyes, this little brush gets the job done. My only grip which is why I took 1 lippie off is that they no longer make this product in BROWN. I like a very natural look and when I owned the BROWN color in this mascara brand, it was perfection! Great defintion and great volume - no clumps or wear off.

I owned this mascara …

May/25/2014

I found this at a local CVS. I was walking around looking for Garnier's new Charcoal face wash/mask and stumbled across the La Roche Posay line. I have literally never heard of it before. Before buying, I came to Makeup Alley to check out fellow posters reviews of the product. The majority loved it, with a few whom did not. Majority won me over and I figured, I not only had a coupon …Read more

Wish there was a maybe option for this one.

I purchased this at a local Harmon Discount (Harmon Face Values) for $6.99. I did not see that it contained ANY glycolic acid in it at all. I used this product years ago and I think back then it had 4% in it???

I did not see any labeled on this one, but maybe I missed it. I added this to my new route AHA routine. Was told …

Not sure if this is correct name of the product? Perhaps there was a name change? The product I have is the RR AHA 17% serum.

This product is fantastic! I suffer from mild acne and as a recommendation was suggested to add a exfoliating serum to my routine to help keep acne at bay. I was skeptical as usually most product make my acne worse or makes my skin purge. This serum …

Thought I do not truely suffer from Cystic Acne - I think I get one in a blue moon, I read a few review on this product for treating occasional acne breakouts and how it can help decrease the frequency of breakout or the duration of the breakout.

I purchased this direct from the RR website and it arrived within 3 days. I used this at night - I used two pumps which is WAY to much. …
