Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - CLINICAL Ultra-Rich Moisturizer

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2016

My sensitive skin has become redness-prone and very dry/flaky during the Midwest winters the past couple years. I bought this in January to use as night cream, thinking it would be a buttery, melt-into-skin God-send. What a disappointment!

Like other reviewers have said, this is as thick as spackle and doesn't blend well. Worse, once it dries, it leaves your face tight and …

Cleansers - CLINIQUE - Take the Day Off Cleansing Oil

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2016

I've tried tons of cleansing oils (DHC, MAC, Origins, The Body Shop, Burt's Bees) but all contain artificial fragrance or fragrant essential oils that my skin is highly allergic to.

This is the only cleansing oil I've found that's fragrance-free and leaves my sensitive skin even-toned. It melts off all makeup -- including my tenacious, tinted mineral moisturizer …

BB Cream - Too Faced - Tinted Beauty Balm Multi-Benefit Skin Care Makeup [DISCONTINUED]

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/01/2016

I've tried every mineral tinted moisturizer on the market and can't find a better one than this -- but wish that Too Faced would update the formulation. This would be perfection if it weren't for the CONS (see below)!

PROS:
- Contains only mineral sunscreens (zinc oxide and titanium dixoide) AND is fragrance-free, so it doesn't irritate sensitive skin at …

Tinted Moisturizer - bareMinerals - COMPLEXION RESCUE Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/26/2015

I wanted to love this and was so disappointed! I have worn this every way possible: by itself, with light primer underneath, and with a moisturizer underneath. And I cannot get this to look smooth and natural.

While some people may love that this contains no silicones, the hard truth is that makeup -- especially mineral makeup! -- will not look smooth (unless you're 16 with …

Treatments (Face) - Paula's Choice - Resist Moisture Renewal Oil Booster

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/22/2015

Like many others, I also begrudged the high price of this oil: $35 for just .67 oz with a base of jojoba oil. But Paula has a corner on the market as there are almost no fragrance-free face oils out there.

In a quest to calm my dry, ruddy-prone skin -- that no products have fully helped despite going entirely fragrance-free and avoiding all irritants on Paula's list for 3 …

Mascara - Colorescience - Mascara

1.0

Mar/22/2015

I work in a big cosmetic surgery office & medical spa that carries Colorescience for Lord knows what reason. It has to be the worst, most overpriced makeup brand I've ever tried.

My eyes are sensitive and have been watering more lately after I apply my fab drugstore mascara, so I thought I'd try this natural mascara. I thought t would be healthy for my lashes too …

Moisturizers - Paula's Choice - RESIST Intensive Repair Cream with Retinol

5.0
Created with Sketch.

Dec/15/2014

I've tried most PC moisturizers the past few years and still hadn't found one that left my face luxuriously hydrated and supple (that "wow" factor). Been using Skin Recovery Moisturizer since my face is dry and sensitive. But it isn't enough in the winter here in Chicago.

However, this new Intensive Repair Cream is wonderful! It has a whipped-like …

Cleansers - AVEDA - All-Sensitive Cleanser

1.0
Created with Sketch.

Sep/19/2014

This was one of the worst face cleansers I've ever used - and I'm a skincare junkie who has tried countless face washes over the years.

I try to use as natural and healthy cosmetics as possible, but my skin is very allergic to all the fragrant essential oils (eg lavender, geranium, rose, tangerine) in other Aveda products and organic/natural brands. So, I bought this …

Cleansers - CeraVe - Hydrating Facial Cleanser

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/28/2014

How I wanted to love this cleanser! I've liked CeraVe's PM Moisturizer so much that I'm on my 4th bottle. I have slightly dry, sensitive skin and don't want to spend beaucoup bucks on pricey cleansing oils and creams that I've used in the past to melt away makeup without stripping. So, I thought I'd try this cleanser.

What a disappointment! Like …

Treatments (Eye) - CeraVe - Eye Repair Cream

5.0

Mar/16/2014

Like the reviewer below, I let out a quiet "yeah!" when I saw this at Walgreens. Finances have been tight the past year and I haven't been able to afford the high-end cosmetics that I once did. So, I've been grateful for CeraVe. (Am on my 4th bottle of Cerave's PM Moisturizer I like it so much!)

I should preface this review by saying that I work in the …
